Marvel To Release Schrödinger's Comic

It will be both delayed and not delayed until it is not.

Early today Newsarama ran an article reporting Marvel's Generations to be delayed. The initial report claimed that Marvel's initial anticipated release was July to September, per ABC News (Owned by Marvel parent company Disney). Marvel then ran advertisements on the Retailers Summit Event Guide for the event with the dates August to September. Newsarama first believed this to mean that the event had been pre-emptively delayed, which could not be true because that would require cancelling it ahead of schedule and Marvel is never ahead of schedule.

After the report's publication, Marvel responded to the article saying that ABC ran the wrong date, and that the advertisement contains the correct date. While this lines up with the Previews for July, which does not list Generations, it creates and interesting conversation. After all the book was initially announced as July-September but then became August-September as it always was. This means that the book both is and isn't delayed.

"It is a classic case Schrödinger's Comic," says Pheonix University's Head of Physics and Summer Events Proffesor Thaddeus T. Puffinbottoms, "In July the comic will be both on time and late. Until it is printed, it is neither and yet it is both. Unless the book gets delayed before its printing, but since I expect that of a Marvel event the delay would not be a delay but rather the date I always knew it would be released on. Oh dear. I didn't think this was possible, but it would be a triple Schrödinger."

As the professor said these words, the fabric of reality began to tear. The shelves of comic book stores began to melt, and the books themselves phased out of reality. And with that existence ceased. All that was remained was the Grand Wizard Alan Moore floating in an astral orb. He looked upon the void of nothingness and sighed heavily, for he knew he would have to rebuild it all.
