'Shattered Heroes' Teaser Shows More Than Just Heroes Shattering

Does the final teaser reveal what this event will be deal with?

Events events events. You can't have comics without events these days. That's how it seems. Events do drive stories and it gives us a sense that the comic universe is actually larger than the immediate neighborhood of a single character. Marvel has been teasing their next event "Shattered Heroes." Their final teaser, released today, shows that it's more than just heroes that will be getting shattered.

This shouldn't be too much of a surprise. The teaser released yesterday shows the heroes with what appears to be Tanarus, the new God of Thunder. Originally that teaser had Thor in the back. At San Diego, Thor was swapped out.

What are your thoughts on Shattered Heroes? Do they need a break from all the bad events happening in their lives? Maybe they just need a big hug? We'll find out more as October approaches.

That's an awesome teaser

Posted by Grim

So Thor's just gonna... go? I havent been reading continuously. Is Blake still attached to him? Are we gonna see him walking around as a sheild agent now or something?
 i dont understand why they brought thor back to virtually kill him again.. but then again i dont really care. That death of Ultimate Spider-man trade needs to come out...

Never mind them needing a break from the bad events, we do!

Im getting this feeling that Marvel knows who I'am and just likes to kill off everyone I like.

Another death for Thor? Complete bullsh!t...

Why is there a quote from a SVP of Sales?   Do we care about what a Senior Vice President in a department unrelated to plot has to say?

So he will be dead a few weeks then we get a new event of his return

I am a big fan of those huge events Marvel likes to do. The idea of having all the famous heroes come out and work together against a massive threat appeals to me, and makes a lot of sense considering they all live in New York. But...I kinda want them to just cool it with the Major events...for just a year. That's all...let the characters actually deal with the aftermath instead of tossing them straight into another big scale event...

Fear Itself Aftermath..that's what it needs to be called. Seriously. And with Thor? Well, another one bites the dust..except this one has bitten dust over and over again until its just become cliche. Stop with big events already, Marvel!

I second that. Marvel is just pushing all this on us, and the worst part of it is if this keeps up many people might just drop marvel entirely. Hope your happy with that marvel. Cause you all can quote me on this later in life. "I will not buy a single issue of this event.
 
 I would love just a good old fashioned casual read, and not have anything pertaining to some so called EARTH SHATTERING EVENT.

Not interested in the slightiest. I give it 3 months maximum before Thor's back, but it will probably be far less.

Posted by Trodorne
 I don't think I can find a better picture to describe marvel in my mind.
Posted by Deadcool

Thor dead, Villains Team-up, Heroes also team-up, they should save Thor and the word... 
 
That is what I think it could be...

This is freakin hilarious,

No, no, no, no, NO!!!!!! WHY?!??! He just had a very successful movie. He's gonna be in The Avengers. Why must this happen?!?! I DAMN THEE QUESADA!!!! I DAMN THEE TO THE ICY DEPTHS OF HEL!!!!

Not to be a stickler or anything, but Joey Q isn't EoC any more, you gotta blame the new guy Axel something or other
Posted by pspin

It is another dark reign, itt will be followed by another heroic age, then another fear itself. This will only affect like five characters max and wion matter by the next big event

Nothing will never be the same again

Edited by CATPANEXE

Still with the notion that it's more thematic than anything, status quo of Marvel Earth, much as Age Of Heroes was. 
 
Thor dead is a surprise to me though. I'm not reading his series, but I'm aware its running, and last they showed in the Fear itself book he was 
only beaten, much like he was in Siege. I really doubt with everything they would just dismiss his character, and at worst he will just have adventures
elsewhere.
 
* edit: actually I just looked at the November solicits and Thor...
also in light of what I read there, I'm not on the badwagon that Marvel doesn't lnow what they're doing or whats next is going to be terrible, quite the opposite in fact, I like what I'm seeing previewed in the fallout of Marvels current events: FI, SI, and Schizm.

Oh. Well that's news to me. My statement still stands however.

its not an event its like a new chapter like the heroic age...... just read the live blog on marvel 

Posted by Teerack

Man the heroic age was to shortly lived :\ I'm looking forward to everyone looking homeless. 

Posted by Vortex13

It's kind of funny how every event is said to "change the marvel universe." They say something like that each time everything will change and the hero's will have harder times bla bla bla. I have no idea what I'm going to be reading to be honest.

It does still feel right to blame him though, so I'll join in your anti-Joey Quesadilla organization.

Kill them....bring em back.....kill them.....bring em back........ki--oh wait no one cares anymore!

This is why DC will crush when they roll out the new 52.  I really hope Marvel learns something from this crap.

Posted by Mumbles

Love how something is going to go wrong for thor, and the movie came out this year. you would think they wouldn't mess with him for the new fans

Idk dude, but they should definitely use that as a catch phrase for all their events from now on. 
Posted by They Killed Cap!

I am ready for a break from events let them live there lives for a bit...
Posted by hitechlolife

Isn't Shattered heroes the after-event banner thing like heroic age was? Either way it means a truckload of pointless tie ins I guess.

Posted by StarKiller809

I'm gonna pass. I know it's super early but I just want to relax for a while. 
 
Plus, I'm not really into Marvel.

Glad to know I'm not alone.

Nope doesnt reveal a thing ;D

If Thor dies i'm gonna take a break from marvel for a while... Bucky was more than enough for shock value.

Dark Reign, Heroic Age, Shattered Heroes...sigh, I quit giving a rat's sack oh so long ago. I'll always read the books I read and just ignore the overall "Event/Theme" the company wants to slap on the cover. Seriously though. This is why I enjoy companies without connected universes so much more.

Make Mine DC.

Posted by The Myth

It's long over due that Marvel had an event with a positive outcome!

Posted by Namor1987

is Mjolnir tied to Thor's lifeforce like if's destroyed does he die too?

Quote of the month right here!
Posted by leokearon

It seems Shattered Heroes is similar to Dark Reign (from the liveblog), it seems to be more of a theme rather than an actual event
