For months now, Marvel Comics has been teasing and promoting the launch of Generations, an event which will focus on Marvel’s “legacy” characters. This includes icons such as Captain America, which has seen Steve Rogers at times cede his mantle to Sam Wilson. It also includes characters like Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Thor, and others.
With the August launch rapidly approaching, Marvel announced today which writers and artists will be tasked with carrying out the summer event.
The complete list can be found below, but it generally appears that the writers responsible for the current ongoing series featuring these characters will be handling them for the Generations event as well. Nick Spencer, for instance, will be back for The Americas, despite the current ire being directed at the writer for his Secret Empire plot.
