    Fair enough with Strange, but Danny no longer has a book, so his would also have to be a special mini. Based on past sales and the fact his Netflix show is no more, they won't bother. He could be involved in the event, but I don't see an Iron Fist tie-in happening.

    Totally random speculation: I am currently reading Remender's Venom run, and Flash (along w/X-23, Alejandra Jones Ghost Rider, and Red Hulk) all make a deal with Mephisto to defeat Blackheart - they owe him a favor some time in the future. My guess is that favor will come up and result in the resurrection of Flash Thompson (if we get the Mephisto event).
    Oh, I remember. Red Hulk (Thunderbolt Ross) managed to break the deal during his time leading the Thunderbolts in the Marvel NOW! series from around 2013 and the Venom symbiote transferred the Hell Mark (with its previously consumed clone from the Daniel Way Venom series) to Andi Benton after Cullen Bunn picked up where Remender left off. Of course, that still leaves Laura/X-23 and Alejandra up in the air, not to mention that given Ross's death in the recent Captain America series and him showing up as some kind of wraith in a new level of hell below all others in The Immortal Hulk book . . .
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    J Michael Straczynski is apparently returning to Marvel in August on a project with Ed McGuiness. Interesting that they could have him back with them just prior to the December event...

    Probably just a one-shot, considering there was seven other similar announcements.

    I imagine so, while JMS is supposed to be making a full time comeback to comics, it's going to be with another company (the new one set up by former Marvel EIC Axel Alonzo and two others) so this is probably to shake off some rust.

    Rumor has it that it's for a project called Marvel #1000, which is if "Marvel Comics" continued from 1939 way back in the day. That's why there's a bunch of announcements for longtime creators who haven't worked in the business to come back.

    It would seem Mephisto strikes again at another Spider.

    spoilers:
    it seems Mephisto is gonna be messing with SpOck based on SSM #6. It can't be a coincidence, right? so far he's messed with Ben, Miles and Otto, maybe they are planning something.
    end of spoilers

    Oh Oh this happens with Miles, he is a hardcore marriage fan and it seems as if you are neutral to it which in my eyes Miles believes isnt possible.

In the latest issue -- out this week -- there's a bad guy who is on the trail of figuring out who Spider-Man is. How much suspense is there when, just two weeks ago, Spider-Man's identity being public knowledge was the status quo? After the marriage and the efforts made to undo it, why should we, as readers, believe any relationship he has in the future will ever lead to him getting married again? They're pretty much told the readers that Peter's life is never going to progress past a certain point."

    OMD isn't the illusion of change...it's the end of change. It means that Peter Parker is trapped forever in the Truman Show...only it's worse. Truman eventually got out, but Peter never will. So it's like the end of Terry Gilliam's Brazil, Peter is basically in some dream simulation of groundhog day-like loops and he can never get out. So it makes the entire story depressing no matter what the writers behind it do. 616 Continuity is tainted forever thanks to OMD.
    Tainted how, how is OMD the end of change, it made a change YOU didnt like but it was a change and has changed since so please explain how this is tainted or maybe you shouldnt

    I would but i'm not really a fan of the ship at the moment mainly because people believe its MJ or nothing and dammit i like choices

    It's also the truth. Sometimes the truth is dramatic.
    Its your truth not the truth the two dont have to be the same.

    This has to be leading into something BIG, right ?

    It has to be leading to something. At first I dismissed the Mephisto thing in Spider-Man & Deadpool as a one off thing that won't be brought up again, but since then he's been screwing with 3 different Spiders. There definitely has to be a connection.

    if he messes with Venom and Gwen next then I will totally believe a Spider-Man family vs Mephisto

    That seems possible. But there has to be a reason he's targeting the spiders, specifically right? Maybe it's because of their connection to the web of life or something.

    If this were solely a Spider-Office thing, I could buy it, but it also involves the Avengers office, which makes me think that there's just some general lack of coordination where Mephisto can have an event where he loses his position and can't be Mephisto, but then he's doing normal Mephisto things in Avengers (which at least will explain) why this is happening), he's doing normal Mephisto things in Champions (another book from the Avengers office), and now he seems to be doing normal Mephisto things in Suppy. Hey guys, do you like Mephisto? Here's Mephisto, Mephisto, and more Mephisto. It's like everyone is independently doing their own spin on his gimmick for their books and now it's like he's the most popular Marvel villain.
