If you were hoping to catch a breather from line-wide, status-quo shattering blockbuster Marvel Comics events after this summer's Original Sin, the future looks pretty bleak for you. At the No Really We Swear We're Gonna Kill Wolverine panel at C2E2 today, Marvel teased their next next super-mega-crossover event: Axis. The logo for Axis uses an Avengers A and an X-Men X, so we can assume it will onvolve both teams and consist of rampant character assassination on Scott Summers.
While no details were revealed, sources close to Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso tell The Outhouse that Axel is very excited about the event and that nothing in the Marvel universe will ever be the same when it's done. Additional unconfirmed rumors have surfaced suggesting that readers may find their senses shattered after reading the comic, and that this is a story that Marvel has been laying groundwork for for over three decades. We here at The Outhouse don't like to speculate, but we think there's a pretty decent chance that Marvel's superheroes will face tough choices that force them to choose a side, and that the repercussions of their actions will have a lasting impact on their lives for years to come, or until at least the mid-winter super-mega-crossover-event that follows the early winter super-mega-crossover event that follows Axis.
suckers true believers!
