The Mondo Marvel Panel hit hard and fast. Here's a rundown of the new books and character hooks that were revealed.

The Sweetest Pick: January's Rocket Raccoon and Groot will have a cover by Mike Mignola and be written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.

Four new Cap books are on the way, including Captain America: Man Out of Time, which reunites writer Mark Waid with the character.

January's new Power Man and Iron Fist series will feature the new 'Power Man'

THE CRUNCH: Rom, Space Knight will appear in an Avengers story * The Ultimate line expands with October's Ultimate Thor  by Jonathan Hickman and Carlos Pacheco, and December's Ultimate Doom by Bendis * Loki gets his own book this October * Araña will take over as Spider-Girl, Mayday Parker bows out with Spider-Girl: The End * Illuminati are back in trouble in Avengers #7.


  1. excited for iron fist mini and also Jonathan Hickman's Ultimate Thor

  2. Nice picks IFF! I like the Iron Fist is moving into more of a spotlight too, but I don't get why they aren't running with Danny and Luke Cage?

    That combo just seams to sweet to pass up... Still I guess we will see when Power Man debuts in a few weeks!

  3. I guess Marvel is sticking with their duo in New Avengers and also Van Lente stated Luke Cage will still play a role in both minis. Am not sure the chemistry Danny n Luke have can be replaced but since the New power man is danny's student Luke & Danny will be like a mentor guiding him to the right path that is how i see it.
    So lets wait and see how it turns out

  4. Hey dan check out my interview with Fred Van lente about his mini
