This Week In Marvel

This Week In Marvel

Hey, Jesse Quick-Rincon here to bring you your new weekly dose of Marvel related news. Fortunately this week Marvel was slow with their news as I imagine they didn’t want anything to step on the toes of the upcoming Captain America: Winter Soldier out April 4. This means we have time to marinade in some Marvel goodness.

First up, Spider-Man 2099 is coming to the year 2014, which should make him Spider-Man 2014 I suppose, but I guess Peter Parker is Spiderman 2014, only he was replaced by Doctor Octopus and was created in the sixties… okay, screw it, the character Miguel O’Hara is getting relaunched in the title Spider-Man 2099 which will be written by the affable Peter David and drawn by one Will Sliney. For those not following the adventures of Superior Spiderman, Spider-Man 2099 traveled into the past after some weird shit started popping up in the future. He got stranded in the past after his time machine was destroyed during some shenanigans and he decided to stay here a. because he doesn’t have much of a choice and b. because he wants to hang out with Tiberius Stone and make sure he turns out to be a good guy so Tyler Stone doesn’t grow up to be such a douche bag..

Original_Sin_0_CoverAlright, next up is Original Sin news. Marvel has been pushing their Original Sin spoiler images for awhile now, but it looks like they are finally ready to release a damn comic showing us what it is, and honestly, I’m kind of excited. The Watcher is going to die and Original Sin will be a mystery story trying to figure out who killed him and for what reason. Yes, for once the character they drag out everytime something dramatic happens as a sort of visual short hand for Shit’s about to go down has now been killed, which is easily twice as dramatic as standing there and watching stuff.

“Original Sin # 0” will be written by Mark Waid and drawn by Jim Cheung and promises to introduce readers who might not know what the Watcher does (because apparently they think we’re gibbering idiots) an introduction to the character via new young hero Nova, last of the Green Lantern rip offs. I mean Nova Corps.

It goes on sale April 23 which is in fact my birthday, so yay for that.

Also, we have two Original Sin tie-ins to mention which is a lot more fun to say than it is to write.
.
“First Deadpool #29” will delve into The Merc with a Mouth’s nasty past which isn’t that hard considering Wade isn’t that nice of a guy. Apparenlty focusing on Deadpool’s relationship with his parents and some bigger, even more mysterious mystery, this comic is certainly going to tie in to Original Sin.

And last but definitely least, we have the Original Sin tie in to The-New Invaders, a comic which has thus far been kind of disappointing. Yes, they’ve reunited Golden Age heroes and pitted them not against Golden Age villains or modern villains but the Kree who haven’t been relevant since the 1970s. Well, Marvel seems to be hoping Original Sin will make them more relevant by doubling down on the Kree thing and insisting that they were actually a big deal in World War 2. You know, several decades before they were even invented by Stan Lee.

If for some reason that interests you check that out in “All-New Invaders #6” by James Robinson and Marc Laming.
