Marvel is currently holding their House of Ideas: Digital Announcements panel at comic con, led by Ryan "Agent M" Penagos and Senior Vice President Content Creator, Content Development, and Unnecessarily Long Jon Titles C.B. Cebulski. While the panel was expected to contain information about upcoming digital releases from Marvel, things too a turn for the emotional when Penagos mentioned his reaction to Guardians of the Galaxy. From Newsarama:

"I've seen Guardians of the Galaxy twice so far, and I cried both times. It has a lot of heart and might just be my favorite movie we've done yet," Penagos said.


When Cebulski admitted that he, too, cried upon seeing Guardians, Penagos reportedly broke out into tears right at the panel. Cebulski put his arm around Penagos to comfort him, whispering, "There there," and, "It's alright," only to end up crying again himself. The pair invited the audience to join in and have a cry with them, and the whole thing turned out to be very therapeutic for everyone involved.

"I just... I just wish you'd bring back the Spider-marriage!" said one teary-eyed fan, releasing years worth of pent-up sadness and frustration. "One More Day really hurt my... *SOB* feelings!"

"The Peter Parker I know would never make a deal with the devil!" he added, his voice cracking several times.

"I know the new female Thor helps bring more diversity to comics, and I'm in favor of that," said another, "but I fear change. I have ever since my parents got divorced when I was five!"

"Waaahhhhhh!" said another fan, abandoning all pretext and throwing herself on the floor, reportedly in response to the upcoming end of Hawkeye.

Several other fans soon chimed in with tales of personal heartbreak and rejection, and by the end of the panel, there wasn't a dry eye in the house and no shoulder was left uncried on. There was a moment in the middle of the panel when, due to a shortage of tissues at the convention center, the whole panel was in danger of breaking out into mass chaos, but one savvy reader figured out how to use her shirt sleeve instead, and things were quickly brought under control.

The panel concluded with a short Q&A session that mainly consisted of questions like "How are you doing?" and "But really, how are you doing now, you know? How are you really doing?" The general consensus was that, though things might seem tough sometimes, eventually, all things will pass, and to every dark cloud, there is a silver lining, and... you know what, I'm getting a little misty eyed as I write this. I just...

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggghhh haa haaa haaa! Waaaaauuugghhhhhh-haaughh-haaauughhh! *sniff*

Sorry readers, I was overcome with emotion for a moment there. Now that I've got a handle on myself, I'd just like to say, cheer up, panelists and attendees of the Marvel House of Ideas Digital Announcements panel. It's alright. There there.

Oh yeah, somewhere in there, they announced a new Infinite comic, All-New Captain America: Fear Him, which will bridge the gap between Captain America #5 and All-New Captain America #1. Dennis Hopeless and Szymon Kudranski will write and draw the six issue series, due out this fall.

Updated: New images from the Captain America: Fear Him Infinite comic:

An upcoming Ultimate Spider-Man (based on the television cartoon, not the Ultimate universe comic). No further information was provided other than it coming.
