Marvel Teases New 'First' Series

It's time to guess what the latest teaser is about.

Marvel has released a new teaser today. You can sort of look at these as a game. Often they are slightly vague and do exactly what they are meant to - tease us.

It seems as if we may be getting a new series simply entitled MARVEL. The teaser has a focus on 'first.'

The following is the only information sent along with the image:

Begin with the best super heroes in comics--Marvel does it FIRST!!
HUGE story coming soon to fans, worldwide.

One guess could be a series reprinting their characters first appearances. If they do plan on that, it's more likely that they'll retell the first appearances instead. Most likely with a new writer and artist rather than just reprint the original issue. This could be a chance to add in some new insight or update tiny details to make the story more relevant.

Or it could be something completely different. What are your thoughts? Looking over the names above, you're reminded about some of the great characters Marvel has.

Hmmm it says Alpha up there so i doubt it's about retelling of origins

Just about to comment "No Wolverine...!" Then found him.

Well, at least they've made Hope re-emerge from her exile. Sounds interesting nonetheless.

IDK maybe something similar to A+X where it's different people every issue, giving a chance to spot light various characters through out the Marvel Universe

My interest is slightly piqued.

From now on, all of Marvel's issues will be number 1's. To help new readers of course.

little conceded arnt we? lol

Posted by Pwok21

Iceman, Iron Fist, Cable, Scarlet Spider and Winter Soldier are all involved.

Interesting.

I am definitely intrigued. Seems like it could be one giant story of all the Marvel characters that exist..... Or, yeah, it could be the re-telling of each individual character's upbringing (similar to what DC did with Earth One's Batman and Superman). Either way I will probably read this. Although I am familiar with the majority of each Marvel character's genesis, I am unaware of some.

First thing that popped into my head was a new Marvel comics presents.

Posted by Z3RO180

I'm looking forward to this marvel has really steeped up these last few months.

Posted by Baddamdog

Hmm I was thinking that all these names are the names of the leads, or lead characters, in the new Marvel Now books.....

...but then I saw Doop.

Posted by ANDRELO

Could it be "MARVELMAN"?

Posted by guttridgeb

Intriguing...

Edited by Teerack

I thinking maybe a new Namor series cause his title is the First mutant and we already have a Captain America book so i doubt it's a first avenger reference.

Posted by Don_Jay

Hazmat's there, but not X-23, so maybe X won't make out of Avengers Arena...

But I really f-in hope this isn't some sort of reboot, like the new 52. Last time marvel did it blew up in their faces, of course they shouldn't have put Liefeld in charge, but still.

Posted by ReverendHunt

They should have thought of a better name/teaser. All I can think of is every douchebag that sees an empty comment field now.

Posted by Or35ti

Posted by TheAcidSkull

Posted by mk111

These teasers get harder and harder...

Posted by Fuchsia_Nightingale

Ah youtube story lines

spidey does the Harlem shake, and Human torch is FIRST to comment

Posted by War Killer

Captain America's origin does not need a retelling, Ed Brubaker explored his origins very well in The Marvels Project and in Captain America: Reborn, and I don't feel they should mess with what he did.

Posted by Don_Jay

@RedQueen: I still hope that Avengers Arena will end up as some sort of VR crap Arcade pulled on the kids and they are actually just strapped in a chair somewhere, because otherwise it just doesn't make sense. Don't tell me the Avengers wouldn't have noticed their students went missing and all the geniuses couldn't find them in 30 days.

Go on...

Posted by tim_mik

I'm with . I think it's a rotating Marvel Universe book.

Hope it's that with some sort of passing of the torch stuff. Wish they have interactions with other heroes and pass the story to them. E.g. Spider-man to Captain America to Iron Man to Guardians of The Galaxy and so forth.

Posted by V_Scarlotte_Rose

Maybe they're just copying DCs #0 Month, and publishing an origin issue for a load of characters. Like, their first adventures?

Posted by Smurfboy

Does anyone know what happened to Silver Surfer? I've noticed there is no currently comic book series for him. Been wondering about this for a while now...

My wallet hurts...soo many new on-goings coming out these days that are good.

Posted by GreenFuse

Cable is at the very top henceforth confirming that he is the bestest.

Posted by johnkmccubbin91

I don't care anymore. Either it will be something that will interest me and I may get it or I'll just forget about it. Hopefully the later

@Don_Jay: haha don't joke like that it isn't funny...

Posted by Rabbitearsblog

Sounds interesting, although I'll wait for the summary of this before I get excited.

Posted by sora_thekey

Man... I totally expected the first comment in this article to be "First".

@Phaedrusgr said:

Hmm, interesting...

Fail on your part dude! j/k

Posted by JamesKM716

This just annoys me. Unless it's a new ongoing they need to STOP with all the events. Seriously we're close to staring Age of Ultron adn they're already teasing Infinity, Marvel of the Dead and now this? SQDIyt[fgid

'

It's upseting; one of teh reasons I prefer DC

Yeah, I'm thinking it may be a new Marvel Team-Up.
