COMICS: 1961 - 2015; End Of The Current Marvel Universe Confirmed After SECRET WARS

Marvel have confirmed today that a reboot of the Marvel Universe is set to take place following the events of Secret Wars, with both the current version of that world and the Ultimate one coming to an end in the pages of issue #1. Hit the jump for details on that and what will follow...


After months of speculation, it's now official! The Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Universe will both come to an end during Secret Wars, with the end result being a rebooted Marvel Universe incorporating elements of both. It's all quite confusing, but here's what we do know.

The first issue of Secret Wars will feature the collision of the 616 and Ultimate Marvel Universes, with both getting destroyed and a Battleworld left which is made up of many different worlds. That will see the launch of several different limited and ongoing series' set in this reality, many of which will be those bizarre teasers we saw on a daily basis some time ago. At the end, we will apparently be left with a new Marvel Universe. It appears as if that will be the "All-New Marvel" we heard about last year, and while the history of the characters will remain in place, this soft reboot will change things a great deal as the likes of Peter Parker and Miles Morales share the same world.

We had to see this coming of course. The Fantastic Four are in the process of being done away with, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are no longer mutants, Wolverine is dead, and the X-Men could be next to go. Marvel have remained cryptic in their comments, so whether the new Marvel Universe moving forwards will be this Battleworld mashup or something else altogether isn't 100% clear, but the one which has existed since 1961 is at end regardless. What do you guys think?
