Good afternoon comic book fans! Some news:
My all-time favorite comic book series is Marvel Two-in-One from the 1970s-80s. I love it so much, I'm in the process of reviewing all 100 issues and the 7 annuals (review for #12
will be posted tomorrow).
So when Marvel's editor-in-chief Alex Alonso tweeted an image of Thing with a 2 on his belt instead of the traditional 4, I got REALLY excited. While there are no more details out yet, it would seem that the Marvel Two-in-One series is being revived this autumn.
Marvel famously attempted to dismantle the Fantastic Four, and distance the characters from the Marvel universe after publishing chief Ike Perlmutter threw a fit over the movie rights remaining in the hands of Fox. So to hear rumors of the F4 returning, and to see Two-in-One possibly coming back, is a great encouragement to F4 fans.
The Marvel universe is being rebooted this autumn in an initiative being called Legacy. This apologetic reboot is in response to a lack of comic sales, because core fans have been fleeing Marvel ever since the core characters were changed, mostly due to gimmicks (Captain America being changed into a Nazi, Thor is randomly a woman, etc.).
Will Legacy be enough to bring core Marvel fans back?
Can we expect to see The Thing starring again in Marvel Two-in-One?
I hope so.
