John Carter: Princess of Mars comes out in September. Question and answer time... There is something very special at the end of this panel.
Q: Where is Power Pack? A: C.B. says the kids are out there. Odds are greater than not. Q: Ultimate Punisher? A: For now, they're concentrating on the main teams, but as the world grows, they will introduce more things.
5:00- Q: Cable and Deadpool match ups? A: Cable is dead. Q: Can Greg Pak reveal anything about Red She-Hulk? A: Red She-Hulk always made sense to him, since she's been around so many angry men and had to "eat her anger" all of these years. What happens to Betty is a huge part of "Heart of the Monster." Q: Iron Fist? A: Iron Fist news on Sunday during the Fear Itself panel.
5:05- Q: Will Ant-Man and Wasp joining the Avengers? A: Dead joke. I guess it referred to the film. No one knows. Q: What is planned with Kid Loki? A: C.B. states that there are some plans, and he's become more popular than they could have thought. They can't talk too much about it, but there are plans beyond Fear Itself. Q: Will Runaways ever come back? A: C.B. says that there are plans for the characters. The individual characters will pop up in different places. There are no plans for the team as a book though. They haven't had anyone bring them anything worthwhile essentially.
5:15- We all get Ashcans of Hulk in Arabia first issue, three months in advance. I feel special! Back to questions: Will the super heroes ever age? A: They already did that with Old Man Logan and Spider-Man Reign. Q: How about a collaboration between Marvel and DC? A: You don't see Ford and GM making a car together. They avoided the question, and it's something fans would want to see. Come on people. Ridiculous. Do it... Q: Are there going to be new GLTB characters? A: Alpha Flight! Northstar! Avengers Academy and a couple other books explore that and Generation Hope does that as well. Q: Moon Knight and Daken crossover? A: Moon Knight is in Daken's book in August. There will be more characters in California.
5:25- Was it necessary to kill Human Torch? Will he come back? A: I'm sure at some point he will, says Hickman. Hickman will keep him dead though. Q: Will the Parker family be in Shield? A: Hickman says they thought about it, and shot it around, but eventually shot it down. (My leg is asleep) Q: We never saw Human Torch die. A: Hickman says in the 50th anniversary will show his actual death.
Panel over. I picked up my copy of Hulk and left. Here are some pictures of the upcoming Marvel stuff in the order I talked about it.
