Heroes Reborn: Is Marvel reviving its infamous 90’s reboot?

Heroes Reborn in 1996 was one of the most notorious Marvel Comics crossovers of the 90’s, but it clearly doesn’t prevent publishers from taking advantage of the project’s 25th anniversary. Marvel has released a series of teaser images suggesting a new spin on the Heroes Reborn concept. So far, Marvel has released eight teaser images, all drawn by Carlos Spa Czech (Ultimate Avengers). Check out the slideshow gallery to see all the teasers published so far.

Heroes Reborn: Marvel teases the resurrection of the infamous crossover

For those unfamiliar with the original Heroes Reborn, the crossover was a short-lived attempt by Marvel to restart the Avengers and Fantastic Four franchises. Following the onslaught crossover event, the world believed that both teams had sacrificed their lives to stop the Almighty villain. But in reality, Franklin Richards used his power to create a new pocket universe where he could live a new life without the memory of the world left by his friends. Renewed with titles like The Avengers, Fantastic Four, Captain America, and Iron Man, the story of each character was effectively resumed from the beginning, which could make a big difference to the established origins. Heroes Reborn was also noteworthy as Marvel, who was on the verge of bankruptcy at the time, outsourced the production of various books to Jim Lee’s WildStorm Productions and Rob Liefeld’s Extreme Studios.

Naturally, this change was short-lived, and the following year, various heroes returned to the regular Marvel Universe, restoring their memories. Marvel has revisited the world of Heroes Reborn several times since then. This is especially noticeable in the 2006 Onslaught Triborn.

We still don’t know how the new Heroes Reborn will connect to the original Heroes Reborn. Teaser seems to suggest that this will be a brand new story that shares little in common with its predecessors other than its name. Instead, this Heroes Reborn seems to be set in a world where the lives of many heroes and villains have taken different paths. For example, there is something that looks like a helpless Peter Parker filming the Daily Bugle’s Spider-Woman. In the Alpha Flight version, Wolverine is still a member, Sherman plays the role of Sorcerer Supreme, and Phil Coulson is running for President and Bengrim. Reed Richards is a member of SHIELD. In other cases, the project seems to combine multiple characters into one (Infinity Wars 2018), but Doctor Doom uses the power of Jaguar Note and the apparent hybrid of Scarlet Witch and Enchantress. I am.

Marvel has promised more details about the new Heroes Reborn next week, so we’ll let you know when they’re available. Whatever this new project is, it is likely to start in April 2021.We already have at least one substitute reality Marvel story that we are looking forward to in April. Spider-Man: Spider-Shadow is a limited series of WhatIf style exploring the world where Peter Parker becomes Venom instead of Eddie Brock. It’s also the month when Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman conclude Venom’s run with the Venom # 200 Anniversary Special. Be sure to check out ‘s complete breakdown of what to expect from Marvel in 2021.
