The Future of Marvel NOW! Seen in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #695

Get a glimpse of what's coming up. Possible spoilers.

Remember back in THE AVENGERS when we saw the future timeline of the Marvel Universe? (You can see that image HERE). A lot of that came true (except the Ultron War seems to have been pushed back to make room for AVENGERS VS. X-MEN). In yesterday's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #695, we got another glimpse at the future, courtesy of Julia Carpenter, the current Madame Web.

Click image to enlarge.

Can we count on everything here happening? Are there any major spoilers revealed? Take a close look and let us know what you think.

Whats up with Captain Americas Head, near the top near venom. It looks like someone replaced it with a loaf of bread.

An Army of Ant-Men. Neat.

Edited by JMLG

Flash better lose control over Venom soon so Frank and Elektra can murk him

and is that Captain America vs Daredevil again?!

Posted by Vortex13

Um, is the guy in the bottom right (not sure who it is) sitting Indian style in the nude?

Posted by Michiel76

Hmmm i don't see anything really major happening here, although apparently deadpool is going to see mjolnir real up close.

@Vortex13: Must be the Aboriginal hero joining the avengers. A portal generator mutate

Posted by pspin

I hope that she doesn't die.

Posted by Vortex13

@krspaceT: He's not black though.

Posted by Death Certificate

looks like Morbius gets his revenge on spidey.

Posted by GothamRed

didn't DC also show how the new 52 would go in this same way. It's not a reboot sure...but still.

The old X-Men that are coming in the future, Hazmat fighting a wild chick (i dont know her name ;p), Punisher vs Spiderman, some shots of Venom, Carnage and Scarlet Spider possibly from the 'minimum carnage' story that starts now. So pretty much nothing we haven't seen already.

Posted by raptorsrevenge

@Mutie199: I think the wild chick is X-23, maybe?

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

This was a great panel!

Posted by GR2Blackout

Carnage comin' back?

YES!

Posted by ShadowX

is that Mj?

Looks like Legion to me.

@GR2Blackout: he already is back. check out minimum carnage alpha. it will spread out in venom and scarlet spider.

All New X-Men team on top left corner. Man, all this looks crazy.

If that's MJ.. She has some nice thighs.

John Romita Jr art? He is drawing Captain America in Marvel NOW! after all.

Idk it just looks REALLY square like, robotish...

Posted by sweetesttoaster

Captain America's feet are freaking enormous in that panel.

Edited by animehunter

For those wondering if she is MJ, actually it is Julia Carpenter. Mary Jane doesn't make an actual appearance in this issue, except for maybe this page of the issue.

I believe this is MJ

Posted by Cafeterialoca

Oh joy. Hazmat is going to get killed by X-23.

Have I mentioned that I am not looking forward to Avengers Arena?

And I'm sad that Julia Carpenter is dying. She was the more interesting Spider-Woman because she, well, had things to do than be Hawkeye's blow doll.

Posted by LordRequiem

Minimum Carnage will be daft if it's what I think it is. I can see Morbius, RESULT! Doc Oc's robot, that original xmen team that get transported to the future just to bring Jean Grey back, Venom losing it, Hydroman, Scarlet Spider. No big spoilers here as far as I can tell.

Posted by Spideycap

Looks like Ock's finally going to die, Hulk joins shield, possibly Deadpool joining Avengers, Lizard in an iron man suit, Cap gains super feet powers thanks to JRJR, and whats up with Peter's head poking out of that water?

Edited by animehunter

When it comes to Marvel, death can mean a number of things.

  1. She actually does die.
  2. She dies but is reborn.
  3. Death could be a metaphor. She doesn't die, but loses her Madame Web abilities.
  4. She loses anything that connects to the Superhero life, in other words death could mean end of one life path and entering another.

If at the end of it she really does die, my only hope it is a death that means something and has/adds substance to the future of the the Marvel Universe especially ASM. For example, the way Mattie Franklin died (not going to spoil it by mentioning how she died)

Also if she really does die or lose her abilities, who do you think would take up the mantle of Madame Web, or do you believe this will be the end of the Madame Web mantle.

Bottom right. Can't see too closely, but are those Daken's hands?

Posted by kid Apollo

there's a gold thing with tentacles near the picture of Elektra, i was worried for a moment cause i thought it was Cloc, that stupid robot the Sentry had

I really can't take it. I don't want to get a book where my favorite characters could just be killed. It's flat out making me anxious.

I mean, this is one of the covers:

I really don't want to read a book where I get invested in characters just to see them die. It just looks like it will depress me more than any other book out there.

God, I don't want a dead Hazmat...

Hydro-man?

GOSH SPOILER ALERT I HAVENT READ THIS ISSUE YET! :(

i didnt read the headline, but the article title is enough spoilers... ug.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@animehunter: I think they're setting up Julia's daughter for something more. There's no reason to develop her relationship to her daughter if they were just sending her off.

My bet? We're looking at the birth of a new superhero because of Julia's death.

Posted by VictorVonDoom_1

I also just noticed Logan in between her legs. I'm assuming he's going back to the school..

Posted by BatWatch

Maybe I am revealing my lack of knowledge about Marvel, but the only thing I see remotely revealing is possibly multiple Ant Man's...and I am guessing that is just him shrinking or growing. Anybody with more knowledge than me able to fill me in on what I am missing?

Posted by thenexusrebound

Ooo looks like there is some X-23 in the top right corner.

Posted by Zella

Nothing in the image matters as much as Deadpool doing something with Thor

Posted by punkpuppy3

I doubt X-23 is going to kill Hazmat since the AA kids are going to be sticking together

Posted by bladewolf

Why does this look EXACTLY like a scene towards the end of Flashpoint?

Posted by skyjumpermike

I don't know a ton about Ant-Man, but what are those things coming out of his hands? I'd like to see an Ant-Man "from the beginning" comic.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@punkpuppy3: Thing is, Hazmat is likely to die.

1) She's lovers with Mettle. (Thus kill them for tragedy)

2) They go on and on about Cammi, Runaways and X-23 in interviews, not the AA kids.

3) The first issue is confirmed to make you mad, and the 2nd issue also has a kill.

4) The Braddox Kids will kill known fan favorites, as stated in an interview.

It's just a very depressing sounding book to me!

I understand, I just like the general Idea of 'survival of the fittest' and I love X-23. I have a feeling Laura is gonna shine in this book (hopefully). I mean it sucks some will have to die (like hazmat) but I'm pretty sure most if not all will be back eventually.

Those are all the Marvel NOW! titles.

Thing is, teenage characters who aren't that famous DON'T come back. Wallflower for example. Most of the New X-Men. Skin.

I'm sure it'll be good for X-23 fans. But it's just sad to see them put promising characters on the line like this. You can probably see why this frustrates me.

Posted by punkpuppy3

Oh...well I'm depressed now :/
