Wow. That's mighty suggestive.

After so much backlash from fans over the New 52, I can't see Marvel pulling a stunt like this. Not after Marvel Now being widely praised. This is probably just a middle finger to DC.

I didn't know they made jokes. Maybe you're right then.

I thought they might be starting a weekly series or something.

They are starting something that they didn't fully explain yet. Unless this is another subliminal jab.

Hmm, maybe the two could be related.

#0 Month came after the New 52 started. It was an origins one shot for each title. In between issue 12 and 13 for most of them.

@akbogert: @V_Scarlotte_Rose: I KNOW. you guys are just giving me reason. they were rebooted origins, because they were origins one shots for the new universe. until then you only knew somewhat what had happened to the heroes. Obviously they came out after N52, but they happen chronologically before because they are the new origins for the characters in the new REBOOTED universe

#25 Posted by akbogert (3150 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jorgevy: That's fair. I guess my question is, how do you rewrite origins of characters without rebooting? Yeah, he's the same character, but his whole past just became completely different. That doesn't make much sense to me.

well, they just retcon somethings, like instead of spider-man being bitten in the shoulder he is bitten in the hand, or he is bitten 5 years later than the original year he was supposed to. just small details, to kinda fit into the universe now. also, they can tell the whole origin to new readers and they can change some dialogue or scenes. they can do it differently, but they will change some things, just not the whole thing

Marvel did #-1 issues in the 90's so chucking in origin stories isn't exclusively DC's territory. If that's what this is. Remember the Spider-Woman rebooted origin? It was pretty good though I think they should stick with continuity even if some of the original ideas are silly now. I prefer a retcon to a reboot.

": Sounds incredibly dangerous...but then, that's assuming they care how fans feel about things they do. Otherwise no danger, if you don't expect people to care enough to stop buying."

Akbogert-- Marvel already did this with Iron Man. Pretty 'seemlessly.' The Extremis Arc retold his origin, changing it from Korea to the Middle East.
#38 Posted by Jorgevy (5114 posts) - - Show Bio

@akbogert: that's why it's pretty bold, but if it works well, it can pay off big time

#39 Posted by akbogert (3150 posts) - - Show Bio

@DarkxSeraph: Like I said, dangerous. Doing it with so many characters almost guarantees that they do it badly, I'd think.

@Jorgevy: Perhaps. Again, doing a couple rewrites is one thing, but to do so many, and of so many major characters, strikes me as more likely to piss people off than anything else, especially given all the people who have heretofore supported Marvel for not rebooting.

Of course, again, I may not be reading Marvel for long anyway, so I guess I don't really care.

To me it's like Marvel and DC are brothers, DC is the older, well adjusted brother that went to law school and became a successful and put together individual, and Marvel's like the rebellious younger brother that did things his own way and constantly makes fun of and takes jabs at his ''square'' older brother who usually just ignores him.

No one comes on a forum at all unless they have extra time. Unless you are staff and have to be here. Otherwise we're all here for the same reason. To discuss comics. It takes no time at all to count to 50.

Discussing on forums is fun. We take some time off our routine for that. Counting names on a jumbled up pic and posting all of them? *Yawn* I'd rather sleep :D
