POSSIBLE MCU CROSSOVER EVENTS: reviewing as well as RESPECULATING
With the overwhelming success of the MCU’s venture into major crossover events such as Civil war as well as Infinity war (Infinity Gauntlet in the 1991 comic miniseries), the wise bet is for the MCU to continue to inundate us with these prominent character crossover events with their short- as well as long-lasting franchises.
About nine months ago, our uber-talented Blaise Tassone speculated on some crossover events we may see on the huge screen in the years to come. With the benefit of a couple extra movies, some major announcements, as well as leaked information, it’s time to revisit the techniques that Kevin Feige as well as business may have up their sleeves for their fans.
Secret invasion (2008)
Blaise called this after being introduced to the Skrulls (alien shapeshifters) throughout Captain Marvel, as well as he absolutely nailed it. What we understand now that was not remove last spring was the revelation of Skrulls playing the part of humans in Spiderman: far From house as well as saw the alien race as doppelgangers for Nick Fury as well as his S.H.I.E.L.D. team.
Based on that surprise, this story seems practically a provided to appear at some point. In 2008, the tipping point that led to the Skrull invasion was the damage of their empire in prior storylines as well as the Skrulls then ending up being persuaded that earth ought to belong to them. At the end of far From Home, humans as well as Skrulls are existing peacefully, however ought to the Kree-Skrull war ever present itself, all it would take is one wrong relocation from the humans for that peace to be fractured.
As a contemporary comic with myriad variations that exist, trick invasion #1 in a CGC 9.8 costs next to nothing. Seriously – the last 9.8 offered in late 2019 for $37. What does expense a great deal is the very first appearance of the Skrulls – in amazing four #2. any type of top-quality copy of this book runs well into five figures, with only 2.5 as well as below selling for below $1,000. A much more attainable spec on this story may be the Kree-Skrull war arc in Avengers #89 thru Avengers #97, where even the greatest grades offer for a grand or under.
If we ought to ever be blessed with Dr. Doom in the MCU, he will likely have no instant competition for the supreme villain that would undoubtedly unite all marvel heroes under one cause. Well, if you requirement a storyline that assembles all understood heroes – as well as I imply ALL – then look no even more than 2010’s Doomwar.
The story practically composes itself into an MCU film plot. Dr. Doom covertly seeks to assault the kingdom of Wakanda while at the exact same time steals all of its vibranium for his own use. Over the program of six issues, Doom interacts, battles, or tries to recruit just about every marvel hero you’ve ever heard of: Avengers, X-Men, amazing Four, Spider-Man, Deadpool, Skrulls, etc. You name it, it’s in there.
This story has me determined for Dr. Doom to be introduced in the next Black Panther film, if not before. up until then, we can spec on books that may be relevant. just like trick Invasion, there is no genuine market for Doomwar #1 (although the series has some amazing covers). For some affordable books that may overlap with the story, the very first solo Dr. Doom story (Marvel Super-Heroes #20) has been selling for under $1,000 in a CGC 9.6 in 2019. The very first Black Panther as well as Dr. Doom satisfying happen in Astonishing Tales #6 as well as even the greatest CGC grades run under $200 best now.
Avengers Disassembled (2004)
This is a lesser-known, however interesting story since of the character that ends up playing a central function in the arc. This story ran in a long-standing volume, mainly in Avengers #500 thru Avengers #503, however stretching out to other characters’ problems as well as an epilogue called Avengers Finale.
In the story, we see the “death” as well as exile of a number of essential Avengers characters: Ant-Man, Iron Man, Vision, as well as Hawkeye. It turns out that the damage that occurs over the pages of these books comes from Dr. Doom controlling Wanda Maximoff, having realized her immense power as well as capability to overpower her Avenger teammates.
The powers that be in the MCU have referenced on several events exactly how powerful Wanda is as well as that she has practically unlimited abilities. We have barely scratched that surface, however I can see a story establishing where we lose a number of the primary Avengers we still have in the MCU because of some overuse of Wanda’s power (or what our Michael Vlachakis phone calls “reverse home of M”). The recent footage during the very bowl likewise teases the world-changing power Wanda possesses. This storyline in 2004 directly led to both The new Avengers as well as young Avengers series, both of which are being heavily speculated best now. possibly this type onull
