awesome cover

Let me just get these two comments out of the way so everyone can bask in the awesomeness:

Hold on guys. I see the both the Fantastic Four AND the X-Men on that cover. This MUST mean Marvel is really going to either stop publishing them or try to ruin them.

Hold on guys. Marvel is celebrating their 75th anniversary along with sharing their long illustrious history in one massive hardcover. This MUST mean Marvel is really going to reboot.

Now that that is out of the way, let me share my thoughts:

THIS IS AWESOME! Very excited for this!

That would be interesting.

Great cover none the less.

This cover is innacurate, Wolverine should be in more than one panel, namely, all of them.

Better have a LOT of good things to say about Jack Kirby inside...

@amazingwebhead: Except the only characters that are at least 75 years old on that cover are Namor and Cap.

Yes, but they still created the universe the others were born into.

This definitely. Jack was, is, and always will be THE KING. One another note, I look forward to the Bruce Timm Cap story- sounds like one of the big draws to the book for me. I love Bruce Timm's work, and I remember the short story he did for Captain America: Red, White & Blue- I mean Cap vs. a Nazi werewolf, how cool can you get?(Though here's much more to the story than that.) Can't wait to see his recreation of a Golden Age classic and doing Cap again.

@smashbrawler: I think you're thinking of DC with Batman.

Batman didn't meet virtually every DC superhero before they became superheroes and/or their parents so... no, I'm pretty sure I'm not.

I hope and pray to Heaven above that a reboot DOESN'T happen. Marvel's history is what makes Marvel...well, Marvel. Let DC have the reboot be their thing, let Marvel do what they've been doing. I don't want to see things happen like the Invaders being erased from continuity, like the JSA was in DC. That is a nightmare to me. Marvel, embrace your 75 year history, don't turn the clock back- move forward. That aside, I hope there are some things about the original Torch in there. I mean, he is arguably the first of the Marvels. And I love me some Golden Age Torch.

@smashbrawler: He knew basically all of their exsistance before the public.

Posted by thewalkingdeadpool18

@smashbrawler: Also neither did Wolverine he met a few X-Men,Hulk (even though Hulk was already a hero) and a few villians but A+ exaggeration you got there champ

@thewalkingdeadpool18: Why should I bother to write a real rebuttal? You already proved you're not worth wasting my time with. Hell, this whole argument isn't worth my time, "Wolverine met every Marvel character before they got their powers" "No he didn't" "Yes he did" No he didnt!" "Yes he did". Jesus Christ.

Posted by thewalkingdeadpool18

@smashbrawler: But you are factually wrong sooooo. Also truth is you just don't have a rebuttal Smashbrawler like your typical comments you just say random ignorant crap and don't have a response when someone calls you out on your crap but eh.

Posted by SmashBrawler

@thewalkingdeadpool18: Oh damn! I just got told by some random dude in the Internet! My life has been absolutely demolished by your amazing victory in this completely trivial argument over fictional characters!

Again, I have no time for this nonsense, I use my time on this site sparingly and getting into idiotic arguments over who Wolverine met or whatever is certainly not what I'm using that time for.

Posted by thewalkingdeadpool18

@smashbrawler: You're so busy reading articles and making ignorant comments.
