The Nextwave wiki last edited by seastark on 07/19/13 12:39AM View full history

Origin

Nextwave is a group of minor Marvel Superheroes. The comic was intended to be a comedy with a sloppy plot. Nextwave was created by H.A.T.E (Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort). They are used to fight against "Unusual Weapons of Mass Destruction." Nextwave usually battles H.A.T.E's main enemy, S.I.L.E.N.T. which is a terrorist organization.

Creation

Nextwave were created by Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen. Their first appearance was in their very own series Nextwave: Agents Of Hate #1.

Real or Unreal?

''Civil War: Damage Report'' implies that the members of Nextwave had their "memories and/or personalities" altered by H.A.T.E., which may account for the bizzare out-of-character behavior, and might mean that in mainstream continuity, the events of entire series itself never happened, or happened very differently from the way they were portrayed.

Warren Ellis initially said the entire series was set in an alternate universe, but the cast later showed up in various other comics in ther Nextwave costumes. Joe Quesada finally confirmed that it was set in Earth-616.

Official Theme Song

Nextwave has an official theme song. The song was written and performed by the Thunder Thighs and can be found at their MySpace page.

NEXT WAVE

It's like Shakespeare

But with lots more punching

It's like Goethe

But with lots more crushing

The motherfucking boat is exploding!

Dirk Anger's one crazy mamma-jamma

Sitting around in his pretty pink pajamas

Purposely

To bring about catastrophic devastation!
