Axel Alonso Speaks, We Just Try To Join The Dots

Joining some Original Sin dots… From Newsarama,

Axel Alonso:  Dark secrets from our hero's past will emerge – profound and life-changing secrets that sometimes go back to their very origins – and one of those secrets is a new character whose very existence will turn the life of a Marvel mainstay upside down and tee up a new ongoing series.

Well we already know that Amazing Spider-Man will introduce a new character that was also bitten by the same radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker. Could this character be one of the new series as well as being part of the Spider crossover?

Like I said, this event is huge. Just like Avengers vs. X-Men gave birth to Uncanny Avengers and numerous "Marvel NOW!" launches, Original Sin gives birth to at least five new ongoing series, all featuring solo characters, including at least one female one, and completely transforms three of our core ongoing series, with either a totally new – or significantly altered character – in the title role.

So we have Deathlok.

We might have Spider-Woman.

We might have Mystery Spider-Bite Person. Unless they are also Spider-Woman.

Ant Man. There's a film.

Doctor Strange. There's a mention.


And there's another big character who learns that he and his brother have a—wait, nevermind. Look, I could go on, but I'll cap it there.

So Hawkeye? Iron Man? Thor? Could Arno Stark be taking over Iron Man? Oh, also, courtesy of his chat with CBR, looks like The Abomination is back in Hulk #2…
