Title: Secret Wars a.k.a. Future Joss Whedon Project
Post by: Maven on October 10, 2014, 02:19:42 AM
Next event: Secret Wars (http://marvel.com/news/comics/23428/coming_next_year_secret_wars)

So I see a female Captain America, Iron Man vs. Iron Man, old school representations of characters, three or four Thors? I mean what the hell is going on? Why don't they just call it Marvel Wrestlemania?

It's a secret.

What's the Whedon connection?

Secret Wars sounds like future fodder for a Marvel Studios film, like Avengers 4 or something.

Female Cap looks like it could be American Dream from the old MC2 books. MC2 Thunderstrike looks like he's in there also on the far right. Iron Man 2020 is on there. Ghost Rider 2099. Upper-left corner looks like the Iron Avengers version of Giant-man from the Earth X stuff. Black Panther near the top could be Earth X as well. A lot of these characters seem like they're from fairly well established timelines.

Yeah, I don't see anything about Whedon. Looks to me like it's the conclusion of the stuff Jonathan Hickman has been doing with Avengers. The issues I just read of the regular Avengers book (26 and 27) had alternate reality Avengers appear in the 616 universe. They were all about conquest and being sociopaths to the point where they lobotomized Bruce Banner so that he could only change into the Hulk when one of the other Avengers activated a device that also controlled the Hulk - and they took turns controlling him. This may or may not have something to do with the idiotic "incursions" shit that has been going on in New Avengers as well.
