Dead heroes will return. Classic heroes and their younger counterparts who share the same code-names will share adventures. Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso revealed via ABC News announced Generations launching in July and running through September. Here are the books, characters and writers starring in Marvel’s summer event:
Iron Man (Tony Stark and Riri Williams) Brian Michael Bendis
Spider-Man (Peter Parker and Miles Morales) Brian Michael Bendis
Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan) G. Willow Wilson
Thor (Odinson and Jane Foster) Jason Aaron
Hawkeye (Clint Barton and Kate Bishop) Kelly Bishop
Hulk (Bruce Banner and Amadeus Cho) Greg Pak
Jean Grey (young and older) Dennis Hopeless
Wolverine (Logan and X-23/Laura Kinney) Tom Taylor
Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell and Carol Danvers) Margie Stohl
Captain America (Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson) Nick Spencer
Generations follows Secret Empire (a major event where Hydra sleeper Steve Rogers reveals his evil origins and agenda – taking over) and addresses the iconic heroes and legacy heroes who share the same code-name.
“We are looking to honor the legacy of the entire universe, so we are taking the iconic legacy heroes and pairing them with the new class,” Alonso said. “It very much indicates where we are going in the future with all of these characters and what we’ve been planning for some time for the universe.”
Alonso said these stories do happen. It’s not an alternate timeline or time travel. These stories will reveal if and how these characters can coexist.
Generations begins in July.
