Marvel's New Teaser - - O.M.I.T.

And they're omitting a lot of details.

Marvel has mastered the art of the tease. Seriously, if it were a branch of Okinawan martial arts, they would most definitely have the black belt. Remember the KING and 1602 teasers that positively maddened the entire fan community? They weren’t just elegant in their simplicity… they were DIABOLIC.

If you were flipping through this week’s worth of comics from the House of Ideas, you might've noticed a one-page ad from something called O.M.I.T. by Quesada and somebody named Rivera.  I probably should resist, but I won’t, I can’t, I shan’t resist saying that Marvel’s chosen to omit a lot of relevant details from this ad.  What does that acronym stand for? Could it be the love child of M.O.D.O.K. and M.O.D.A.M.? Is the Quesada named in this the “Cup of” Joe Quesada of Event Comics and Ash fame? What about that Rivera person? Could it be Marvel creator Paolo Rivera, collaborating with Mr. Queseda, here?

Actually, I’m deeply wishing, hoping, desiring that this is a celebrity comics connection stunt like we used to see so how often during the Bill Jemas era of Marvel.  And by that I mean, I’m really hoping that Geraldo Rivera (and his mustache of credibility) is involved in this book. This is the man who dug up Al Capone’s secret bunker! Who knows what secrets he could find lurking deep within the greater latticework of the Marvel Universe?

What we have here is some red meat, oh ravenous Comic Vine community, and I’m tossing it into the pack of raging hunger dogs that you all represent so metaphorically. I don’t want to see any simple speculation in the talkbacks here. I want howling and gnashing of fangs as you tear this gristle of O.M.I.T. teasing between you all.  I don’t want to see any suppositions omitted from your posts! Not a one!

it has something to do with x-men

I say it has to do with Spider-Man since it's Quesada and Paolo Rivera.

I was thinking it would be the repurcussions of Spiderman "BND". Maybe "One Moment In Time" and it would focus on that turning point deal with Mephisto

Thinking that it will have to do with Spider Man with it undoing some functions of BND.

One Mutant Is _______
Just my guess, personally, though I have nothing to back it up.

@danhimself:  Not completely. LOL. Just saying that some of the portions. Like his organic web shooters or one of those.

I find it interesting that these four letters are all part of Miracleman/Marvelman's magic word, KIMOTA.

I kind of hope that it has to do with Spidey.  But DAREDEVIL, perhaps?  Or maybe Joe's tackling something different.
