Is that Obnoxio the Clown in the upper right hand corner?

I also see Iron Man 2020, American Dream (from MC-2), Ultimate Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and some Earth X characters.

*clicks on the link*

Shadowline?

There's more MC-2 guys on the far right (Thunderstrike, Darkdevil, Mainframe, Stinger). Also, both Squadron Supreme (or Sinister?) and Supreme Power Hyperions heat-visioning one another. And someone elsewhere said that Ghost Rider is GR 2099.

And I think that may be "The Reigning"/Thor: Lord of Earth Magni between Classic Thor & Cap, but not certain about that one. Definitely Mangaverse Captain America (Prez Steve Rogers) left of Classic Cap, though

The Reigning, huh?

I think we currently only have Thor listed for those issues. Maybe we should beef those out?

Given the rules we hammered out for such things? Probably, since it loops back round to affecting the MU in the end.

[I still call "not it" though ;) ]

PS: Definitely Magni there

Don't worry; it's all laid out in the recent Thor Index. It's on the to-do list. :)

#17 is Marville? I really hope that's not the Bill Jemas U-Decide thing. Unless they shoot all of those characters in the face, then OK.

#10 is Weirdworld? Wow. I haven't thought about Weridworld in YEARS.

I'm actually getting kind of excited about this. However, I wonder how much work it will make for us, what with all the alternate reality characters that will be appearing in this thing. Meaning, when Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham appears, he's proven to be part of the multiverse and we have to add all of his appearances.

Actually, that last one might have already happened in Spider-Verse… I know the assassin Spider-Man from What If…? Wolverine vs. Spider-MAn has already appeared (which we have on the non-canon list, because the Watcher isn't in that issue).

With all of this alternate reality business going on, I wonder if this is when Marvel will finally bring in… the Ultraverse! :lol:

Yeah, probably not.

For anyone reading this who doesn't know, Marvel have to pay a royalty to the original creators (not a huge amount, but...) every time they use the Ultraverse characters. Which, of course, they point-blank refuse to do, to the point that when Jim Starlin brought the Infinity Gems back from the Ultraverse in his Thanos series a decade ago, he was ordered to redraw the skeleton one was attached to so that it no longer resembled Rune.

It's the main Marvel FCBD book for next year, and we have a full premise from the solicit. A mix of original-Secret Wars, Age of Apocalypse and Chaos War, with a sprinkle of Crisis on Infinite Earths:

Secret Wars – Marvel Comics
(W/A/CA) TBD

Prepare yourself for the final days of the Marvel Universe as you know it as the march to the biggest comic event of the year continues! From the ashes of a decimated cosmos rises… Battleworld! Amid the strange, patchwork realm, refugees from thousands of obliterated universes struggle for survival. Even if they can endure the horrors of Battleworld — the home they knew has been destroyed! Time has run out, and the opening salvo of Secret Wars has been fired. But can anything restore the Marvel Universe that once was? 32pgs.
