Marvel Comics has released an ambiguous new teaser image for “Marvel Legacy,” which will arrive this fall.
Aside from the text-based image (released via ComicBook), no further details were provided by the publisher. However, based on recent comments, it’s safe to assume “Marvel Legacy” isn’t a major event, as the publisher announced that there would be no more big events for at least 18 months following “Secret Empire.”
The most obvious hypothesis is that “Marvel Legacy” will somehow be tied to “Generations,” the ten-issue storyline kicking off in July and running through September 2017. When it was first announced, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso told ABC News, “We are looking to honor the legacy of the entire universe, so we are taking the iconic legacy heroes and pairing them with the new class.”
Does this mean that “Legacy” might be a follow-up to “Generations,” perhaps leading to ongoing series for the characters that are brought back in the latter? While we can certainly speculate, Alonso’s remarks regarding whether or not the resurrected heroes remain once the story told in “Generations” concludes might offer some clues. “The answer might be different for each character,” Alonso said. “There’s potential for friction, there’s potential for team-ups. Minimally, it’s something that’s going to require food for thought and introspection on the part of every character. That’s part of the goal when we were sculpting it.”
As is often the case with Marvel, expect additional teasers to arrive soon, and be sure to stay tuned to CBR for more details regarding “Marvel Legacy.”
