  • Captain Marvel To Be Relaunched in 2017

    Marvel had previously announced a new Marvel NOW initiative following the end of Civil War II, and due to the Alpha Flight connection of Captain Marvel we speculated that it may affect Alpha Flight somehow.


    Today, Marvel have announced via the Hollywood Reporter that the Captain Marvel title will be relaunched with a new #1 and creative team of Margaret Stohl and Ramon Rosanas.


    The Cover for #1, by Dave Johnson, was shown as well as a small overview of the series' plot:

    “She will be one of the most popular heroes on the planet — but that’s not something she is very comfortable with,” Stohl explains. “And of course she’s lost a lot of folks that she’s loved, so she has to cope with that, too. That being said, she still has a job to do as commander of the Alpha Flight, her latest mission being recruiting and training new cadets (which will give us some fun supporting castmembers). It’ll also bring with it a mysterious danger that will threaten everything Carol has built.”
    So while we don't know for sure if Aurora, Puck and Sasquatch will continue to be in the series, it definitely sounds as if the AFSS will still be used, and she is still in charge.

      I hate how they restart books so quick now. Books are more mini-series then actual ongoings

      A lot of people are calling for that. Including people on this list.

      I'm, uh, not one of them... but at least it's something that a lot of fans want.

      There's something to be said about the 'Season' formula that TV shows follow.
      I'm not entirely sure this is best how to do it though.

      So, what will the effect of this announcement be on the announcement of AF's ranks being increased? Can we assume it's not happening?

      It's happening as of #7.
      The current Volume should run to #12; definitely to #9 at the least.

      Today's final issues of Ultimates reveals that while the Ultimates are being disbanded Alpha Flight is carrying on.
      The Canadian Government is specifically mentioned.

      Hopefully (or not depending on your viewpoint) this means the team will carry on appearing.

      Oh that's good to know. I'm thinking they will continue on

      Will they still be furnishing Captain Marvel's new series, though?

      That's still unrevealed, and what I meant by the "Hopefully (or not depending on your viewpoint) this means the team will carry on appearing."

      The panels in question:

      The broccoli people died during the Dark Phoenix Saga.

      It looks to me like a 'yes' to my earlier question, though.

      This looks like they will be!

      Although it does appear like a flashback, next to a panel with a Terminated folder... :/

      Couldn't it also be the ultimates when they were disbanded by the government?

      boards really messed up won't let me reply most of the time

      Yeah, the other article I posted reveals it's a flashback, specifically about Ultimates.

      And yeah, I have to Go Advanced in order to post.

      I can still post from 'Post Quick Reply', but I've lost things like quoting text (I have to manually type in the code, and then I can't tie it to the original message).

      The Hachette Book Catalogue listing for Mighty Captain Marvel Vol.1 in August (unsurprisingly) doesn't give any spoilers away!
