1. That the new line of books is very much capitalizing on the work done by Marvel Studios. This makes sense. You want that synergy, even if it hasn't historically paid off as far as bringing new consumers to the medium.
2. That while Secret Wars is offering "Elseworlds" type stories, many of them are pilots for series that will appear in the new MU.
3. That shot across Fox's bow is there, certainly in the absence of a Fantastic Four title (heresy to most Marvel fans), but it's unclear how the X-Men property will be repositioned exactly.
4. That they're really pushing the Inhumans. Ugh.
And 5. That while the MU will return as a multiverse (I've read that Spider-Gwen will still be set on a parallel Earth, though she'll cross over more readily with the standard MU), characters from other universes - namely the Ultimate and Squadron Supreme Earths - will be integrated wholesale into the main timeline.
What's missing? The Silver Surfer, Loki, Secret Avengers, Ghost Rider, Storm, Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Squirrel Girl (noooooooooooooo), Moon Knight, Guardians 3000, Black Widow (she's absolutely NOWHERE) and Punisher are all gone (among others). I'll miss most of those, though it's possible the previews don't tell us everything. I thought for sure we'd see a Defenders book, spinning out of Luke Cage's Avengers and the Netflix stuff. In fact, where are Iron Fist and Jessica Jones? Waiting in the wings so they can better match the TV series? Of all the Secret Wars series I would have like to see act as pilots, Master of Kung Fu is the one I miss most here, though Avengers 2099 certain could make a solid claim.
What are your impressions, hopes and bitter disappointments regarding Marvel's future?
