HUGE Switching of Creative Teams According to Bleeding Cool

#1 Edited by Mercy_ (92686 posts) - - Show Bio

According to them (it's unclear whether this has any basis in actual confirmation at this point) there's going to be a pretty big switch-up in creative teams on some of Marvel's main books.

Among the switch ups

Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic on Avengers

After his five year plan of writing Fantastic Four came to fruition, it’s time for Jonathan Hickman to turn his long term thinking, planning and structure to The Avengers. Brian Bendis has been writing the book for an age and is planning on moving on to something even bigger…

Look for the beginning of Hickman’s latest epic in September or October… and I’m told that he’s joining with Esad Ribic.

So who is replacing Hickman on the FF? Let’s see if there’s another filling that’s worth loosening….

Rick Remender and Jeremy Opena on Astonishing Avengers

Okay, here we go. Yesterday’s Marvel Switcheroo piece seems to have knocked a couple of fillings loose.

And one of them is that Rick Remender and Jemery Opena are starting a new Avengers book together, called Astonishing Avengers. Following on the route mapped by Astonishing X-Men… and Panini’s Astonishing Spider-Man.

We need more Astonishing comics. And we’re going to get them.

If I was still using traffic lights to measure the validity of rumours this would be green with a tinge of yellow.

Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca on Fantastic Four

Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca, taking over the Fantastic Four whenJonathan Hickman leaves for The Avengers.

Fraction has been working on a variety of books for Marvel, including a long run on Iron Man. And we know that Kieron Gillen and Greg Land are taking over that book.

So what’s happening on Uncanny X-Men… and the rest of the main X-books?

Okay that filling isn’t loose yet. Someone bring me a hammer.

Brian Bendis (Possibly) on X-Men AND Uncanny X-Men D:

Okay, this filling took a little more loosening. I had to use pliers, a baseball bat and a large camel.

As a result, it’s a bit crumbly. It’s certainly not all there.

See, I’d heard a while ago that Bendis was to take over the two main X-Men books. But I was then told that Jason Aaron was staying onWolverine And The X-Men. How to put an X in that circle?

Apparently, Bendis will write both Uncanny X-Men and relaunch X-Men. Jason Aaron will continue to write Wolverine And The X-Men. And yes, as Bendis wrote, what he is actually doing with Marvel is a whole lot bigger than that. Which tempts me to speculate it will be part of one enormous cosmic story that will see the X-Men go spacewards with the Guardians Of The Galaxy against Thanos or whatnot. Well, they do all live on an asteroid…

Like I said this one is a slightly dodgier filling than the rest. Let’s see how it all pans out…

I'm putting it out there right now that if they put Bendis on Uncanny, tears will be had.

Bendis has a great track record as a writer for solo books....but for team books his writing takes a big 180. Having such mixed opinions about this writers prevents him from being one of my top writers since his handicap is so obvious. I really enjoyed his daredevil run as well as his current run with miles morales as spiderman but I avoid the team books his writes like the plague. I really hope bleeding cool has received some misinformation about this.

I swear to god I will kill something if Fraction really gets put on F4 duty.

Bendis on Uncanny >__>

The Avengers thing is cool though.

Bendis and Fraction made me cringe a little. As long as Bendis doesn't mess up Wolverine and the X-Men and Uncanny X-Force, I'm fine. I'm really worried about Fraction on Fantastic Four though. It could either go good, or really, really bad. I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate Larroca though.

idk this sounds like bull imo

the creative teams are too convenient. remender and opena (x-force) and fraction and larocca (iron man) together on new books. astonishing avengers? Bendis on two x-books that have just gotten new creative teams/directions less than a year ago. im doubting it.

I'll stick with not going to his site and refraining from giving this jerk page views.

Yay for Hickman on Avengers. Let's hope his good work of FF continues on the Avengers. They sure need it.

I'm not really such a big fan of the x-men. I'm more of an avengers fan and Hickman is a good artist but I'm sad for you guys.

@CitizenBane: LMFAO! XD! It seems that Fraction terrifies a lot of people!!! LoL

I hope it's not true. I really can't stand Larocca and kicking Gillen off Uncanny X-Men would be kind of insulting.

Why does Marvel not like the X-Men?

#19 Posted by JoseDRiveraTCR7 (1008 posts) - - Show Bio

Ever since I heard that Bendis might take over the X-Men I said that I would drop all Marvel books and I plan to stick to my guns.

I stopped giving a crap about the x-men a while ago. I dont even freaking know who half the people on the team are.But I'm freakin ecstatic about the Avengers. Hopefully Hickman can fix the mess Bendis made.

I'm not jumping to any conclusions....Bendis could be good on the X-men...who knows

I think it may not be bad as well, but I don't think it will be Gillen-level GOOD.

Bleeding Cool? That site is full of bullsh!t.

Seriously hope Gillen stays on Uncanny - he's awesome.

Plus, Brian Wood's X-Men Vol. 3 run has just started. By October, the time when this switchover would probably occur, Brian Wood will have had only six issues.
