Marvel Comics Will Cancel 33 Series With the Intro of Secret Wars

Secret WarsMarvel Comics will be ending 33 of their comic books due to the arrival of Secret Wars this May, according to an interview conducted with David Gabriel, Marvel’s SVP of Sales & Marketing.

It has already been revealed that Secret Wars will bring the Marvel Universe to an end, and that Battleworld will be the setting of the new Marvel U going forward — presumably until the end of Secret Wars this Fall — but it’s been a point of confusion as to what will happen to all of the current comics.

“There will be a number of titles reaching, what we’re calling, a ‘616 finale,’ ending those stories and characters as you knew them – for now,” Gabriel said. “Now in a perfect world, we’d have stopped every book with its April issue, putting out a nice clean May Previews catalog. Everyone would have seen upfront all those titles that had their finale, and all those titles that were starting fresh. But things don’t always go so easily. Instead we gave our creators the option to end their stories the way they wanted to; we let them tell “Last Days” stories if they wanted to; we let them tell ‘Secret Wars’ stories if they wanted to. So in the end ‘Secret Wars’ truly has been a creative driven process.”

With a bulk of their publishing line gone, Marvel will be launching dozens of new Secret Wars titles, many of which have already been announced.

Here’s a list of the 33 canceled titles — but keep in mind that some of these will return in some form or another once Secret Wars was wrapped.

  • All-New Captain America
  • All-New Ghost Rider
  • All-New X-Men
  • Amazing Spider-Man
  • Amazing X-Men
  • Angela: Asgard’s Assassin
  • Avengers
  • Avengers World
  • Captain Marvel
  • Cyclops
  • Deadpool
  • Elektra
  • Fantastic Four
  • Guardians 3000
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Hulk
  • Inhuman
  • Iron Fist: The Living Weapon
  • Legendary Star-Lord
  • Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man
  • New Avengers
  • Nightcrawler
  • Nova
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Secret Avengers
  • Spider-Man & The X-Men
  • Spider-Man 2099
  • Storm
  • Superior Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Uncanny X-Men
  • Wolverines
  • X-Men

As for the remaining titles, Gabriel was a bit more cryptic. He addressed three recently released comics in particular.

“Secret Wars will affect every title in some way shape or form, so you can definitely expect Spider-Gwen, Howard the Duck, All-New Hawkeye and others to deal with it in their own ways,” he said, also adding, “Some may take a hiatus for a month or two (something the industry is accustomed to); some will reach their “616 finale;” some become Battleworld transformed; and still others…well we’ll get to those!”
