Default Marvel Ends Amazing Spider-Man, Wolverine, Captain America And...

By this point, it's no new move for Marvel Comics to wrap long-running series one month to have them relaunch shortly after in a new iteration. But with the incoming shake-up that is the rolling Marvel NOW! relaunch, the publisher's moves are coming faster and more unpredictably.

Case in point: in the December solicitations released this morning, Marvel revealed that three titles were up on the chopping block, with "Amazing Spider-Man," "Wolverine" and "Captain America And..." all declaring final issues.


AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700
Plus stories by JM DeMatteis & Giuseppe Camuncoli and Jen Van Meter & Stephanie Buscema
Cover by MR. GARCIN
Steve Ditko (Unused Amazing Fantasy 15 Art) Variant Cover
ASM 50TH ANNIVERSARY VARIANT - Marcos Martin Martin Variant
WRAPAROUND VARIANT - Humberto Ramos
COIPEL VARIANT
QUESADA VARIANT
LAST ISSUE!


WOLVERINE #317
Cover by MIKE DEL MUNDO
Variant cover by Adi Granov
FINAL ISSUE!
• In order to save the Dreaming Maiden, Wolverine must face nightmares while asleep and while awake!
• But is the Dreaming Maiden too dangerous to be saved?
• And what will be the fate of the mysterious Covenant?


CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BLACK WIDOW #640
• FINALE ISSUE! GET READY TO HAVE YOUR FACES PUNCHED CLEAN OFF!
• Captain America and Black Widow lead the multiverse’s finest in a final assault on Venemma Multiversal!
• Black Widow vs. Black Widow...to the death!
• Forget 11…on a scale of 1 to AWESOME this eye-popping, senses-snapping, jaw-dropping final issue goes to 12!

Of course, with the first two series it's almost a certainty that the comics will be back on the racks come January with brand new #1 issues. "Amazing Spider-Man" is wrapping after an anniversary issue #700, and Marvel will obviously continue with some regular series starring its most identifiable superhero. The question stands whether the next series will also carry the classic "Amazing" monicker or whether it will be replaced by an all-new tagline a la "All-New X-Men's" taking over for "Uncanny." Current readers will also be curious to see if longtime Spidey writer Dan Slott will stick with the webslinger once his #700 tale is done. Of course, rumors have swirled that the recent "Superior" teaser from Marvel could be tied to Spider-Man as well.

When contacted about the end of "Amazing," Marvel responded, "This is the one comic you must read on December 26 - and the story all begins in 'Amazing Spider-Man' #698."

For "Wolverine," there's been less pre-relaunch hype about the book's future, though like Spider-Man, Wolverine has become so ubiquitous in comic shops that it's unimaginable there will be no Marvel Universe solo title for the X-Man.

The Captain America title may be a different story, however. With Rick Remender and John Romita, Jr.'s upcoming relaunch of the character's core title, Steve Rogers will be spending some time outside of the regular dimension of earth. And while that's not necessarily a deal-breaker for a second team-up centered title for the hero, the chance that Cap is back down to one monthly remains a very strong possibility.

So ummm... not related, or is it? I don't know comics.

But, so in the movies, Thanos is confirmed to be the villain in Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers 2.
