With 2015 now a full two days old, Alonso follows last year’s look back with a look ahead, and opines on the future of Marvel Comics — starting with the two big “Wars” of the comic book new year — “Star Wars” and “Secret Wars.” With Marvel’s new “Star Wars” line set to debut in less than a fortnight, Alonso talks what he thinks the beloved franchise adds to Marvel’s publishing slate. Given that readers have already been told that the year-long “Secret Wars” is going to be a really big deal for Marvel, Alonso shares his thoughts on what excites him about the story itself. Beyond that, Alonso talks Disney/Marvel collaborations, publishing priorities for 2015, “Uncanny Avengers” and the increased role of Sabretooth, plus drops a pretty big (albeit certainly open to interpretation) hint about a Marvel character poised to have a big year.

There are few Marvel Comics writers that play the long game with more commitment than “Uncanny Avengers” scribe Rick Remender. The current “Avenge the Earth” story arc sees the Unity Squad splintered in a future where the Earth is destroyed and the surviving mutants have created a civilization on Planet X. Now, Havok, Wasp and Beast are set to team up with Kang the Conqueror’s Chronos Corps to help bring the Earth back — but it’s certainly not going to be easy.
Plus, this week’s “Uncanny Avengers Annual” #1 by Remender, Art Adams and Paul Renaud sees the first appearance of the Avengers of the Supernatural, gathered together by none other than Mojo.
Remender joined X-Position this week to answer your questions about “Avenge the Earth” and the current status of the Unity Squad, taking on Mojo in the Annual issue, constructing long-form storytelling and future plans for the Chronos Corps, Immortus’ Infinity Watch and more.
