Moderator Arune Singh hosted the panel of creators and editors which included Sana Amanat, Marjorie Liu, Neal Adams, Daniel Way, Axel Alonso, James Asmus, Jeanine Schaefer, Peter David, Joe Keatinge and CB Cebulski.

Mentioned at this panel were the upcoming Gambit, Captain Marvel and Hawkeye solo series; plans for Astonishing X-Men and X-Factor; Daniel Way news; the fate of the New Mutants; Hulk news; Thanos Son of Titan; and First X-Men.

To start, Marjorie Liu spoke about Astonishing X-Men and the Northstar-Kyle marriage. Things might not go 100% smooth with that relationship, but she did promise that a world-hopping honeymoon would be seen in an Astonishing X-Men Annual.

Another upcoming title, Hawkeye, was next on the table. Singh promises that this will be the series to watch.

The new Captain Marvel series will be about Carol Danvers transitioning into her new role. A relationship from her past is teased as being included in her story.

Though there wasn't an announcement of the title being cancelled, Daniel Way's run on Deadpool will end with issue #53. Way's got a new project coming up that they would not reveal, but Alonso did say that Way will "get to do what he does best". In more shocking news, Singh said that this was not the end for Deadpool.

As previously announced New Mutants will be one of the titles in October's mass culling that will be cancelled. They did promise that you will see the characters in cool and surprising places.

Peter David said that X-Factor #245 will the last issue. Then said "No, I'm just kidding". However, he did say that after his upcoming "Run, Layla, Run" story, he will be wrapping up almost every loose plot he's set up. This will occur in the "Breaking Points" storyline which will run from issue #241-#245.

As of issue #58 the Hulk title will become Red She-Hulk by Parker, Pagulayan, and Alves. Red She-Hulk will have an impact for the Hulk in Marvel NOW!

Not much detail was spilled at the panel, but the audience was encouraged to read the upcoming Thanos: Son of Titan.

Finally, Neal Adams promoted his upcoming title (with scripter Christos Gage) First X-Men, which was announced earlier this year. This is Wolverine leading a team of mutants before the X-Men formed.  

A question and answer session concluded the panel.  Some tidbits:
- There are no plans for Kate Bishop's teammates to appear in Hawkeye, but there are big plans for the Young Avengers.
- Asked about more Doctor Strange, they said they are still working on finding a good idea on how Marvel magic works.
- The Runaways will play a big part  in a new ongoing series in September (no, not called "Runaways")
= The Secret Warriors will also play a role in the series mentioned above (no, not called "Secret Warriors"
- Cloak and Dagger will appear in Amazing Spider-Man
