    @13 - But writing a What If like What If The Green Goblin Had The Infinity Gauntlet is so random. There's no logical reason based on previous stories to think this is a reality that could have taken place if A had happened instead of B. What's next? What If Brother Voodoo Was Sorcerer Supreme? Oh wait, I think that did that one.

  2. Adam S.

    Holy crap. I really wish that Midnight Marauders variant had Spider-Man in the classic suit, it's awesome.

  3. cronotose

    @10 Writing What If that way places restrictions that get in the way of Marvel writing what they prefer to write about. If Marvel's shown us anything, its that getting to write the stories that they personally want is extremely important to them as a company.

  4. Captain Frugal

    The Superior Foes seems to be the only one I want, butl I am sure I need Silk since people demanded it....not.

  5. Frontier

    Is Camuncoli doing the art for the entire issue? Including the backups? I would think the other teams would be involved in the stories involving their characters, so I wonder if they're just not listed? Zodiac as villains for Spidey is about the most positive thing I took out of that solicit. So Osborns plural in Spider-Gwen...that means likely Norman and Harry. Also curious to see who the new Lizard is, but I'm more interested in finally seeing the flashback focusing on Gwen and Peter's relationship and their fight. It sounds like Miguel's pretty much retired by the time of his new series, and in a relationship with Tempest (I doubt it's Liz if he's working with Alcehmax's competitor), until something drags him back into being Spider-Man again. Kitty as Star-Lord? Seriously!? Isn't she even supposed to get a new costume in Uncanny #600 and now she's stuck in Star-Lord's duds? Kind of a downgrade in my opinion, though I guess it seems to further the current StarKat OTP. Just like Slott, I think it's really time for Bendis to leave the Guardians book. The only favor he's doing that title right now is having his name plastered on it.

  6. hornacek

    @1&2 - Agreed for Superior Foes. Although I am surprised that Contest of Champions is being compiled and published. It's not an omnibus at only 3 issues, but I'm surprised it had not been published before since it was Marvel's first mini-series (take THAT, original Secret Wars!) and it was the first appearances of greats like Shamrock and the Collective Man! Then again, Marvel Point One #1 says it will feature new stories from CoC so that explains why they're publishing it now, in case any of the young readers Marvel is so desperate to gain were not buying comics back in 1982 Another ASM #1 by Slott. Everyone remember to look for the new character that will appear in only one page of this issue. In a few months that character will be getting their own series and Slott will be telling us that the incredible sales for ASM #1 were only because of this new character's fleeting images in this issue. What if the Green Goblin got the Infinity Gauntlet? I remember when What If issues were of actual possibilities from established stories and not just drawing cards from 2 hats labelled "Marvel character" and "Random situation".

  7. Nick MB

    @8 It was destroyed at the start of Secret Wars, but since Spider-Gwen is coming back in her own universe, it sounds like it'll definitely be around again afterwards in some form.

  8. Al

    Hey wait a minute...there is a What If title here...but...hasn't the Multiverse been destroyed?

  9. tickbite

    Looking at the new ASM covers, I feel catapulted back into the early 90s, when websites flashed neon gifs at you.

  11. RDMacQ

    So it looks like ASM#1 is going to be the first book out of the bunch, given that it has a series of backup stories featuring the other titles. Seems like they are expecting it to be big. Hopefully they don't screw the pooch on Vol. 4 after the summer's big story....

  12. Sean

    And my decision to wait on buying the trades has paid off. I'm actually surprised this got the omnibus treatment. I was expecting an ultimate collection at most.
