I mean in the main Avengers book is having a universes being destoryed left and right, The New Avengers they are destorying other dimenstional earths to save 616 earth, Reed and family are going threw the multi-verse on simular to the tv series Sliders, Glactus did come to the Ultimateverse and basiclly became on the level of the top Celestrials, Ultimates are suppouse to have a war with the 616 Avengers ,Ultimate Doom is rumored to come back and make a deal with 616 Doom ,Miles Morales is set to come to the 616, Spiderman 2099 is set to come to the 616 as well, look how Age of Ultron ended so much time line, multi-universal, dimenstional, damage has occurred and the orignal X-men from the past are back and their current counter parts don't remeber them ever going this far in the future. Just what im noticing. I can't be the only person noticing this.

So a 52 or Crisis on Infinite Earths type deal? Because it would be pretty huge for Marvel to do a large retconning, mainstream killing event. And what I mean by that is this: sure Marvel has had a lot of "game changing" events, but they never really retconned things (except Beyonder I guess). Hulk's history from his creation till now are all still relevant, unlike say, Superman, who has like, 4 different mainstream histories, GA SA Modern Age and new 52. But I'm sure Marvel is just doing some random things at the moment.

Marvel needs a COIE/Crisis mainstream reboot the way DC didn't.

I would hate if Marvel did a New 52 style reboot. I don't need my favorite character's histories flushed down the toilet.

nah marvel wont marvel has never needed to. they do big events but after each one is a good starting point. dc doesnt have many good starting points so they did new 52 to get new readers to start. marvel now is they biggest they go where pretty much every comic starts a new volume and team rosters and writers change to give each comic a new starting point.

I think so. Infinity, The Hunger, and Superior are going to screw with history, combining ult and 616 with 2099

it's starting to seem like Marvel may do it. Unlike DC I think their Reboot would make more sense and actully fit in more. Marvel always changes their history up but a reboot can change everything. MY only problem would be who would get new books. Who would be stuck in teams who would be the first to get canceled when they do it.

Interesting.

What in comic book context would speak against an ending ala Crisis on Infinte Earths?

I hope so. I think a hard reboot would benefit them.

Marvel needs one way more than DC ever did, tho if they do I'd hope that more qualified writers and editors would take the reigns for it.

SUCH EVIL THOUGHTS WILL NOT BE THOUGHT!

Marvel does not need a reboot and it is definitely not going to happen.

I disagree with the whole reboot situation, I think the time will come for one but not now. X-men are doing fine; the characters have developed so much, like Cyclops. The Avengers have expanded in a good way and are supporting mutants more this is also a good form of development and lesser known characters are getting the spotlight for once. I think the idea of a reboot can only be thought of once Marvel has hit a critical point where their characters have lost all purpose, they become degrading and all continuity is lost. I think this hasn't happened yet and therefore in my opinion a reboot is unnecessary.

@rell127: Yeah there seems to be a pattern of sorts going on there.

One of Marvel's unique traits is that it has a single long continuous history without massive reboots. Rebooting it would be a massive waste.

#16 Posted by HumanRocket (8938 posts) - - Show Bio

No it doesn't need one. Marvel didnt do anything like crisis when DC did it and they don't need one now with the New 52

@guardian_of_gravity: I both agree and disagree with you here, but I wouldn't mind if they just reset to somewhere between the end of Civil War and the beginning of World War Hulk.

I wouldn't mind it. Just not the way DC did it. I say roll the clock back a bit and clean out the closet. Oh one thing I really think they should do is advance their debuts. Like Punisher still has his Vietnam origin for some writers. Bring it closer to the present.

#22 Posted by DWrathborne (333 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think Marvel needs to reboot, but I wouldn't mind the continuity being cleaned up a bit and things like Norman Osborn/Gwen Stacy's love children, Planet of the Symbiotes, 'Franken-Castle' Punisher, and Bruce Banner's 101+ potential Hulk personalities and bout of Lou Gehrig's disease stricken from the record.

Oh, and better utilizing some lesser known characters, or introducing some of the characters Marvel owns from absorbing other companies like Malibu might be nice, rather than 'here's another Hulk/Spider-man/Weapon Plus character' and two more each Avengers/X-Men groups.

And for cripes sakes, when a character dies, even a popular one, let them die! (Though that's just more of a general comic book gripe than Marvel specific.)

I think they are just trimming everything down. Taking the good characters and bringing them all into the 616 universe. They needed jean back since the phoenix is gone now. i think Galactus is going to destroy the ultimate universe.

If they do I for one hope it is a full reboot. Either go all the way or don't do it at all - that is one thing I dislike about the New 52, if they were going to do a reboot they should have just started from the beginning.
