Marvel Teases A Trial

Posted on September 25, 2013 at 9:50 am by Joe Blakeslee

Remember back before Marvel introduced it’s “Marvel NOW” initiative, when they teased the upcoming new books with these little one word images against black backgrounds? Things like the words Worthy, Superior, and Chimichangas were used to hint at what books would be a part of the lineup. Well, it appears that they are returning to accompany next years “All-New Marvel NOW.”

The new teaser features the word “Trial” filled with flames, accompanied by the names of Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen, along with a promise that all will be revealed at the Amazing X-Men & The Marvel Universe panel at New York Comic Con next month.

Considering that Bendis and Immonen currently work together on the excellent All-New X-Men book, and that everything will be unveiled at an X-Men focused panel, it’s pretty safe to assume that this will probably have something to do with the fallout from the currently running Battle of the Atom event thats connecting all of the X-books.

Is it teasing a “trial by fire?” Do the flames have something to do with the Pheonix Force? Will it be a literal trial (possibly that of Scott Summers)? Stay tuned to our coverage on NYCC to find out.
