We're a few week in on Marvel NOW! and the fan reaction has predominantly positive to the delight of the folks over at the House of Ideas. Below, Marvel Editor-in-Chief fields some fan questions about Marvel's latest initiative and addresses the INCREDIBLY controversial happenings going on in the Amazing Spider-Man.


On the impact of Thor: The Dark World in the pages of Marvel NOW comic books?
Alonso: I don’t know about you, but everywhere I look, I see Dark Elves. Wait and see…

Will Dan Slott's 'Dying Wish' arc in Amazing Spider-Man have lasting ramifications?
Alonso: A lot of folks said ["This won't last six issues."] when Bucky put on Steve Rogers’ tights! [Laughs] Look, this story definitely takes place over more than six issues. Dan has a lot of story to tell.

To be honest, when Dan first pitched us the idea at an editorial summit, I wasn’t sold on it. But he walked me through where he planned to take the story – the twists and turns and what this would mean for Spider-Man and for Peter Parker – and I completely came around. The fact that his story dovetailed into the Marvel NOW! era was the icing on the cake. “Superior Spider-Man” is going to be very fun ride. No one will believe where it’s going to take them.

Where does Nick Fury Sr. fit within the publisher's Marvel NOW! plans?
Alonso: Nick Fury’s still out there in the world, an independent operator. He’ll continue to be a presence in “Winter Soldier” and elsewhere.

There's plenty more with Alonso including answers to fan queries on Juggernaut, Pixie and Age of Ultron so be sure to click the source link below to read the full transcript. What Marvel NOW titles have you been impressed by so far? For me, X-Men Legacy #1 by Si Spurrier was an absolutely unexpected gem.

I've liked all of the Marvel now titles I've read so far, with the stand outs being Indestructible Hulk #1 and Deadpool #1 & #2.

Can't wait to see what more happens in Amazing Spider-man. Good to shake things up a little bit I think, instead of just the same thing over and over. I've found people moan when something gets changed, but also when the same stuff happens. Enjoy it whilst it lasts, sure it won't be too long til Peters back in the tights.

The Mighty Thor is by far the best Marvel NOW title! Indestructible Hulk is a close 2nd.

I'm vehemently against this whole Octo Parker thing. But i'm not so inflexible that i would shun it, the current Spidey story telling has been exemplary.Not many people are in as big as uproar about Uproar Octo Parker as they were Miles Morales. Considering Peter Parker is currently dead and has beenreplaced by an amalgamation of Otto Octavius and Peter Parker you'd think people would be peeved.Not so much apparently

Even though I'm subscribed to quite a few Marvel NOW titles, the only one I've read was Uncanny Avengers.lol Hopefully my first issue of Iron Man comes in today.

@HalloweenJack For #2, thats why Rick Remender is one of my favorite writers. I really like how he's bringing back the Jack Kirby captain america era, the original and the best.
ironpool007 - 11/24/2012, 3:23 PM
Uncanny Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, and Deadpool have been my favorites so far. Indestructible Hulk, Thor: God of Thunder, and All-New X-Men were good too.
Roguish - 11/25/2012, 4:20 AM
I'm loving Thor God of Thunder and JIM. I know it's only 1 issue each but I'm predicting success.
ATrueHero1987 - 11/25/2012, 8:39 AM
@HalloweenJack Damn good choices, especially the team books.
beane2099 - 11/25/2012, 4:16 PM
I've liked every Marvel Now! title so far. They're doing something right over there. I have no reason to believe Hickman's Avengers will disappoint. I'm also looking forward to X Force.
