    Default Alonso: "Everything you know about Marvel Comics is about to change "

    New interview about the ramifications of Secret Wars.

    http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/22/84...onso-interview

    Much in it has been mentioned before, but this is the first time I recall actually getting it confirmed that some things will be outright replaced.

    There's been a lot of talk about how this may or may not be a reboot. My understanding is this is effectively changing the fabric of that multiverse but not necessarily the characters. Is that right?

    Yeah, I'd say that’s what this is. It's ultimately for the readers to decide what they're seeing. What I will say is that we don't believe our continuity or our universe is broken. We don't believe it needs to be fixed. And I think that this story will bear that out. We have a tremendous opportunity here to transform the Marvel universe in a way that makes for incredible stories down the road, for the next 10, 20 years worth of publishing. This is an instance where we're going to be bringing into the Marvel universe new characters, new regions, new concepts, and, in certain cases replacing, out of necessity, some pieces that were on the board. And it's going to make this a lively debate on the internet and beyond.

    Hmm....

    Would you say that there are certain characters that take a central role in the overarching conflict? Characters who really bear the weight of this conflict more?

    I'm reluctant to give spoilers, but I will say that people who overlook [the upcoming] Ultimate End run, featuring Ultimate Spider-Man, do so at their own peril. Miles is a very, very important character to the story. And he's not alone. So too with the female Thor. You'll see when you read.

    Honestly, it all sounds very reboot-y.

    But lets wait and see.

    I think we'll get a new mainstream universe and all new alt. universes, but things will be very similar to how they are now, with some changes.
    I don't think we'll get all new origins for everyone or anything that drastic, but what do I know? I'm just along for the ride.

    It sounds worse to me. I am getting very sad. He said quite a few things that I did not want to hear.

    And yet again, this sounds more and more like a good jumping off point from Marvel entirely. I'm sorry, but I really don't see anything that's going to survive 10 or 20 years from this event, much less inspire incredible stories that last that long.

    Seriously, what 'necessity' prompts replacing anyone??? If Marvel isn't being forced to follow the movies, and their books really are dictated by story ideas, not editorial and higher up directives, as they keep claiming, then there shouldn't be an 'necessary' replacements.

    As for Miles importance ... I hope he's not talking about the Hickman event. That will be beyond disappointing.

    Honestly the more I read about this, the more it feels like an event to push their new big character replacements.
    The old see how cool captain falcon, and lady Thor are, and how cool kid nova and miles morales are. So because we say they are cool forget about all your favorites they are replacing and love what we are writing now. Sorry off my soap box now

    The more Alonso says, the less interested I am in whatever comes after Secret Wars.

    I just want to read the characters I like reading about, but constantly have to have it worked around the next big thing Marvel's doing, or have those characters run into the ground because someone thought of a new, nonsensical direction to take them in, or have a lack of marketing so it only lasts 8-12 issues anyways, even if I do like it.

    It's hard being a Marvel fan when characters you want to enjoy are caught in a wave of gimmicks, mediocrity and lack of support.

    I'm then in the minority as I find this information interesting and makes me more excited to see what comes out of Secret Wars....so I will assume that Old Man Logan might find himself in the new 616 and the new Wolverine (or replacement of the Logan character...as it seems Daken is being groomed into becoming the new Wolverine in the weekly)

    Count me in as someone who's very excited about SW and whatever changes lie beyond it. I'm chomping at the bit to finally start digging into the main series and everything around it.

    Add me to that list as well. I've dropped off all my DC titles (except for the main Batman title and Convergence) in anticipation of these brand new world.

    Marvel should be quite motivated to steer clear from the DC's New 52 approach. Dangerous ground. And it hasn't, long-term, much helped DC saleswise (better yes, but back to similar now).
    Thank you AMericA for votinG for chAnge.

    That would require caring.

    My Marvel Universe is still safe and snug in 1976........
