Siege Theory



Whenever there is a new event in Marvel I make one of these blogs to kind of give my opinions on what I think will happen during the event and here what other people have to say about it.It's more or less a prediction thread for people to get out their ideas about what they believe will happen based on what we've seen in the previous events.Here are the other ones....  
 
Dark Reign Theory Blog
http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/vance_astro/dark-reign-theory/87-37786/  
Dark Reign Theory Thread
http://www.comicvine.com/forums/gen-discussion/1/dark-reign-theory/377769/?     
Skrull Theory\Secret Invasion Blog 
http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/vance_astro/skrull-thoery/87-29858/  
 
So now I will make my first predictions. 
 
Dark Avengers 
A.They will replace Ares.I think Ares will leave the team and join the Secret Warriors so he can be with his son.Plus Siege will go into Asgard and I don't think Ares wants to be against Thor. 
B.Thor vs. Sentry (World War Hulk style).I think there is going to be an instance that comes down to a showdown.None of the Dark Avengers can really take Thor.I think Norman will send Sentry at him and Thor will ultimately get the win but it will be an epic fight. 
 
New Avengers\Mighty Avengers\Avenger Resistance\Young Avengers 
A.The Avengers whom are beyond the law and aren't legally able to be Avengers will be one team.Cuts will be made. 
B.The Mighty & New Avengers will get new Rosters.
C.The Avengers Resistance which is essentially the New Warriors anyway...will just be the New Warriors. 
D.The Young Avengers will have the Vision as a member a new Member but also gain a new member.My guess would be Thor Girl.She's not going to work for Osborn.  
 
 
This is all I have so far.Anyone else got any input?

Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America will all be on Mighty Avengers after Siege.

That's confirmed? 
Who are they going to put on the New Avengers to even it out then?

It all depends on what the Marvel U is like after Siege.....What's going to happen with the SHRA?  Is SHIELD going to come back?  What happens to the Dark Avengers?  Will the New Avengers still be the underground team?

Quick question, can somebody tell me how Steve Rogers came back please?

I think S.H.I.E.L.D will come back after Siege because the whole Norman Osborn Reign will be done then.It seems he's still at large in Siege.Also I don't think the Dark Avengers will be disbanded but I think they will have a roster change.Not fully but partially.

He is, yes.

Seeing how the Siege promotional posters have been playing out, I think Nobody's right. The Big 3 is up for a reunion.

That sounds logical.
 
I generally like this idea. I'm waiting to hear more about what people think. Too bad I'm only following Spider-man, DD, Cap, Iron Man, Dark and New Avengers, so I can't give an opinion about New Warriors,  Mighty, and Young Avengers.

@Morph...I know that the Big 3 will be back together but I was thinking maybe the New Avengers would get new members to compensate.After thinking about it.The New Avengers roster can stay the same.The Mighty Avengers have 3 open slot anyway provided The Vision and Stature go back to the Young Avengers.

It's not like you can actually do much following of the Young Avengers these days. Hopefully they get their own title soon, Dark Reign: Young Avengers was lacking.
 
I think that Siege is finally going to bring Sentry from his crazy, though. Or at least make him a more stable character.

I hope so.The whole mental instability thing went from and interesting aspect of a character that is essentially Supes to the worst plot device ever.

I want an all out fight of Thor And Sentry, that could be great, and this epic battleground could be the playground for Skaar to train...

Is anyone following the Fantastic Four? What are they doing?

I could be following Mighty Avengers, though. I hear the series is good.
 
The thing with Sentry has been blown out of proportion. In every single storyline, Bendis finds a reason to depower him. Just for the sake of the plot, I hope his mental stability is restored, because frankly, I can't stand any more plot devices.

I wonder what will happen to Buck now that Cap is/will be back. I hope he sticks with the team.

Haven't read F4 since the MoD storyline. I hear something about alternate versions of Reed running around with multiple IGs, though. 
 
Last time I read an issue with them in, was in Dark Wolverine # 76-77, IIRC.

 It's damn good.It's getting ready to get better too. 
As far as Sentry I would be ok with the plot devices if they were at least clever and written well.They are mostly random and unnecessary.

If Cap is going to be a Mighty Avenger maybe Bucky will remain where he is and just change his name.

Nothing related. The first arc of Hickman's Fantastic Four dealt with Reed's from different Earths coming together to solve all the problems in the multiverse such as imprisoning the Dr. Dooms of their Earth and killing the Galactuses among other stuff. That arc ended when they're attacked by the Eternals of one of the alternate Reed's universe. 616-Reed goes back to his lab and comes back with weaponry strong enough to kill the Eternals and drive them back.
 
The following issue was about Millar's Nu-Earth or whatever it was called and how it was placed next to a wormhole and time was accelerated there and everything basically fell to crap. Alex Ultron and Lightwave took over Nu-World and enslaved Natalie X and imprisoned Bruce Jr. That issue ends with Valeria revealing she's smarter than Reed, apparently.
 
As far as involvement in Siege or Dark Reign, Hickman hasn't really touched on that since his mini-series.

I'm thinking about catching up with Millar's run, I basically read the MoD storyline because anyone was talking about how Millar killed off Doom at the time. Still, I have quite a few series to read first, so it isn't a priority at the moment.
 
Agreed about Sentry.

It was the Celestials, not the Eternals. But otherwise, this is what has happened.

Yeah, those were the three that basically ran the council. Those were the Infinity Gauntlets from their universes.

I don't think that's in character for Thor, or sufficient in order to stop Sentry, but What Ifs? don't make much sense in general.

Dr Doom, with PR Beyonder's full power, and the Infinity Gauntlet required 4 centuries to defeat the Celestials. Talk about PIS.
