Allegedly. Quesada's announcing an "all-new era for one of Marvel’s most classic Super Heroes" on Colbert tonight and I think Cap's a safe bet.


I haven't had a chance to watch the episode yet, but according to the Internet, yep, Sam Wilson is going to be the new Cap, so yeah Cap's got his own diversity-shakeup thing going on, with an already-established sidekick who recently got a lot of buzz from a movie adaptation, so that's why he's not open for being replaced by a lady.

Presumably, like Carol Danvers becoming Captain Marvel and making room for a new Ms. Marvel, there'll be room for a new Falcon, too. Quesada said as much in the interview, albeit as a joke.


I'd say that we should expect Tony Stark to be replaced by a new Iron Man from some sort of minority, but they already did that all the way back in the 1980's.

...okay, actually I STILL think we should expect it.

EW has a bit from Axel Alonso about the upcoming Superior Iron Man. He seems to indicate it's still Tony Stark in the suit, but it's got "Superior" in the title, so who the fuck knows.

Also, there's an image at the bottom that has Angela and Lady Thor standing side-by-side, which would seem to refute the rumors that Angela is becoming Thor. It could be misdirection (remember the fake solicit, complete with Photoshopped cover, that indicated Tony Stark would be taking over as Captain America following Civil War?), but I'm not inclined to think so; what the fuck would be the point of getting the rights to Angela and then immediately changing her name and appearance?

Obvious guess is Valkyrie -- though that's the obvious guess of someone who hasn't read a Thor comic since the JMS/Coipel era or a Defenders comic since the motherfucking Busiek/Larsen run around the turn of the century, so I don't actually know what, if anything, she's been up to lately.

They don't seem to know what else to do with her.

Amadeus Cho as Iron Man would be something.

Someone on tumblr suggested that, just to complete the Pissing Nerds Off trifecta, they should make the new Iron Man bisexual.

A sort of Biron Man, if you will.

You know what'd be great? Revealing that Iron Man is bipolar.

It'd be way better than the alcoholism stuff, at least.

It'd be even better if they revealed that Iron Man is dipolar.

Was gonna make a joke about having Joe Quesada on the line and he loved this thread, but then I did my research and he's not even CEO anymore so I really don't think I have any place in this thread anymore.

"SECRETLY MAGNETO" was my favorite part of Morrison's run.

He's no longer EIC but he is CCO.

(CEO is actually Ike Perlmutter and has been since 2005.)

Sailor Moon Crystal episode 2 is out.

When Ami first meets Usagi, literally the first thought she has is DANG SHE'S HOT

So much for subtext!

She's getting her own solo book, so yeah I think we can rule her out as the new Thor.

Fandom is saying it's probably Jane, which makes sense as she's a character the moviegoing public will recognize (well, sort of).

Okay, after watching Ep 2 I thought this reaction was exaggerated.

But in this episode Ami tells Usagi that there's a hot girl on the bus and Usagi's like holy shit a hot girl let me see and they get on the bus and see Rei and Usagi gets big ol hearts in her eyes and is like I'm gonna go stalk that girl cause she's hot bye. So yeah, we're not dialing back from the manga here at all.

I really appreciated Rei immediately recognizing Usagi when she sees her as Sailor Moon though.

So they can just straight up teleport turing the transformation sequence?

That might explain a lot, actually.
