Marvel Reveals “All-New, All-Different” Character Lineup

Posted on June 8, 2015 at 4:18 am by Tyler Waterman

We’ve known for a while that the Marvel Universe was going to experience some heavy changes after the eight-month epic that is Secret Wars, but Marvel has been so kind as to unveil two images that give us our first in-depth look at the all-new, all-different faces that will define the Marvel U going forward.

There are some familiar faces (looks like both Spideys will be sticking around), some new looks on classic characters (is that X-23 in a Wolverine costume?), and some that are indeed all-new and all-different. (Who’s that guy with the sword?) While I strongly suspect there will be many more of these to come, it’s more than enough to get the discussion going as to what fans are looking forward to most.

Personally, I’m thrilled to see what looks to be confirmation that Old Man Logan is sticking around, I’m always down for a new Daredevil suit, and I’m happy Miles and Peter will finally exist in the same universe for more than a miniseries. There are some headscratchers, though. I can’t say I’m overwhelmingly interested in what appears to be the latest iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and you’ll have to forgive me for not getting excited to read All-New, All-Different Guy in a Loincloth with a Bow and Arrow #1.

Check out the images and press release below, and let us know what you think of this first look at what’s to come!
