Marvel NOW!

Updated on February 28, 2014

Not "Now", but NOW!, From Marvel Comics

Do You Remember or relish the days of yore? The fresh characters and creative plots that drew you to comic books? Well, the industry has been looking for news ways to keep existing readers and entice new ones. Recently, Marvel had started with Point One issues, where a newbie could jump right in to a story without being confused. DC comics, on the other hand, has been working through the "crisis" with a Flashpoint and a New 52 that started in August 2011.

Picture: Captain America sports his new costume look, and new team here in Avengers #1 (2013).

But that's all going to change. Again. Once more. Marvel has planned something on the bounds of extraordinary; they've explicitly stated that it's not a reboot, but a series of issue #1 starting in October 2012, which they call "Marvel NOW!". Slated to last through Summer 2013, there intent is to make it a reformation point for new and old readers alike, bringing them amazing content, plots, and stronger development.

This summary and landing page for Marvel NOW! is a snapshot of the event. (Is event even the right word here?) We're going going to catalog each cover, the comments and the intents, and see if you like what's going on. As well, you'll be able to see the news articles and opinions of others - maybe even get a few spoilers and sneak peeks.

The Marvel NOW Reading Order

UPDATES COMING: 10/16/2013!!

Click Here for The Updated Marvel NOW! Reading Order

Due to size and link restrictions, this Reading Order and Summaries have been moved here.

Most Recent Update

Last Update: 10/21/2013

Rule #1: The Reading Order is fluid until the event is over.

Rule #2: I listen to your comments and work well with others.

Rule #3: No profanity.

10/21/2013. - Just letting everyone know that I'm still here and getting the final touches on the list. There's some issues that still need to be logged and some links that need to be reconnected.

04/26/2013. ::Insert Heavy Panting Here:: Okay, there's a two-part explanation in this note update. First of all, I've finally got the Reading Order and the Summaries moved over to The Superheroes List, a website I run on my spare time. I HAD to move all this stuff because it was getting extremely difficult to publish here on Squidoo. I don't blame anyone at all; my information was too much and had some redundancy. Secondly, this week's update will be implemented MONDAY, 4/24, because of the amount of time it took me to get this moved over. From then on, though, all updates will be more timely.

04/23/2013. Hey again. I'm still in the middle of moving the Summary Pages to their own spaces. All you have to do is click the links in the Reading Order if you want to view them. In the meantime, X-Fan pointed out that I was missing Superior Spider-Man #8. Once I checked that out, I ran back here and added it to the update. Thanks greatly for catching that error!

04/19/2013. Hey everybody! Although much of you already know this, the Marvel NOW! event is shaping up to be pretty long. There's already word of a "second wave" around June. The problem here is space; Squidoo is starting to rebel against the size of this page and it's creating issues. SOOOOooo, to make this work out better, I'm moving the Detailed Summaries to their own, smaller pages. You'll be able to visit them if you want and they'll get updated consistently with new releases. Even though I'd like to keep everything together, it's my only option. Hope it doesn't create a problem for anyone else; you should see changes throughout the coming week.

04/12/2013. Greetings! This is actually a good day because I came up with a strategy to refine the Reading Order and make the event easier to follow. This week's releases have been implemented and expect to see some real GOOD stuff starting Monday 04/15/2013. I'm pretty sure you'll like it.

04/04/2013. Added this week's implementations. The ReEvolution Banner is now gone from all the titles, so it's just Marvel NOW! I'm also aware of the Second Wave of this event; it'll probably get another page.

03/29/2013. Hey people. I know a lot of you have been following the interviews and reviews, but I still have to say - It's weird that Age of Ultron is part of the Marvel NOW! event. I think Marvel is really messing with the timeline a lot. Either way, I implemented all the issues, added a little bit of art, and have the AU section at the end. Until next week.

03/22/2013. Well guys, here's the scoop. Now that there's only a month or two (or 3 or 4) left, the final issues are going to wind together at the end. With the exception of a few titles, like Captain America occurring in Dimension Z, most of the changes in the Reading Order will be in tandem with the rest of the titles. I've tried to keep most of the sections separated because this is a huge list, but as with all things, the conclusion should bring it all together.

03/15/2013. He there! Finally read up on all this week's releases and pulled them together for implementation.

03/07/2013. Heyo! Just implemented this week's releases. The Hulk has been moved up now that we're getting a picture of him wearing his SHIELD armor around the Avengers and so on. Also, I took Shoxee's advice: The version of the Beast in New Avengers has to be the old one. So I have All-New X-Men lined up to assure the continuity. By the way, be aware that I'm spending early, early mornings reading the forum to see if you find any problems. I'm trying to stay on top of this huge event.

Marking the debut of the event, Marvel released a few TPBs, including Marvel Now! Point One and Marvel Firsts: Before Marvel Now! These books represent key figures in the event and some of the new things you'll see that they're working on.

"The Complete Marvel Now! Catalog (Amazon)

Discontinued Titles from Marvel NOW! (Captain America #19 (2012)

The Discontinued Titles - Marvel NOW!

The Casualities of The Marvel NOW! Event

Based on the October solicitations and confirmed by Marvel, these following issues will conclude their titles:

Captain America #19 - Steve Rogers pays a visit to William Burnside, a man who posed as Captain America in the past, and tells a story how it is his burden to be the man with the shield, else others will be called on to fill the role.

Deadpool #63 Wade Wilson, never to be outdone during a comic-book-altering event, finally concludes the strange plot that landed him in this issue. It turns out that the serum that would remove his healing factor didn't work. Either way, the last scene shows his evil twin shooting him in the head, and then blackness. The end? Naw. (Special thanks to MAB86 for pointing this issue out.)

Fantastic Four #611 - This issue returns many of the chronal alternate realities and dimensions back to their origins. By the end, Reed's dad decides to go and "pay his debts". Doom decides he doesn't want to be a god and Valeria hangs out in a dimension where she can get creative. (??) This ends the title, but the actual conclusion of the story occurs in FF #23.

FF #23 - Future Franklin decides it's time to leave this time-continuum and let his younger version grow. After a series of goodbyes, he tells Sue and Reed, his mom and dad, that they did a good job and disappears.

Incredible Hulk #15 - Hulk faces an army of gamma'd-out animal men and doombots and is about to die when, internally, he makes "mental peace" with his Banner side. The two then manage to overwhelm their obstacles and win the battle.

Invincible Iron Man #527 Tony makes rounds to all aspects of his life, including Stark Resilient and Maria Hill of SHIELD before he decides he wants to explore new frontiers. Grabbing some older version of his armor, he blasts off to begin a new chapter of his life.

New Mutants #50 - During a BBQ party, Warlock is assaulted by a similar techno-being named Tyro whose patriarchal side is taking over. Doug comes to his rescue and overwrites his techno-code.

Mighty Thor #22 - Having tricked Odin to return and save them, Thor is now on the Ring of Doom, and under trial until the people of the Nine Realms, especially Baldur, stands for him, breaking the cycle. Strangely, though, this is an intriguing part of Odin's plan yet to be unveiled.

Uncanny X-Men #20 - A bit of a surprise, this title was concluded and restarted back in 2011 with the end of the X-Men: Schism. In this issue, Scott finds out Mister Sinister is still alive while he's in prison. Elsewhere, Magik and Colossus battle it out and she dispels the Cyttorak enchantment on him. Danger is finally release by Unit, and he leaves his imprisonment.

X-Men Legacy #275 - In this long-lasting series, the final issue is about Rogue and Mimic, both superheroes with powers based on other heroes, taking on super-criminals escaping from a prison. The point of the story is that they are learning to trust their powers and their ability to control themselves.

How Foul Marvel NOW!? - A question to the fans.

Much of the impressions given by the editors at Marvel suggest that NOW! will not be twist in reality. It will still retain all the characteristics of an earth-shaking event, but the characters (the ones who survive) will get lots of great stories and updates that won't hurt their backgrounds and past histories.

Updates Archive

The Previous Updates.

03/01/2013. Hey guys. Just thought I'd fill you in on my absence. There was a huge storm here and things were sporadic at best. This week's issues are implemented. Submit your discrepancies this weekend and I'll go over everything Monday.

02/22/2013. I've been reading your comments, guys. Just finished this update. Keep up the debate. Like you, I noticed issues that have "discrepancies", but I'm waiting to see how everything plays out. This list is updated for this week.

02/15/2013. Took me awhile, but I finally got this week's update in. The integrity of the Reading Order seems to be holding. Also, it might take a few more days before I can response to any comments below. But I will respond as soon as I can. If you see anything messed up, just let me know.

02/08/2013. Hey people! Just wanted to drop in one last time this week and add the two optional issues I previously mentioned. I'll catch you all next week.

02/07/2013. Hey Everybody! Wow, this event is really a tough one. Right now a major portion of the Reading Order has been shifted around. Spider-Man stuff has been moved up. I also learned that the Beast mutated himself before he joined in on New Avengers #3; that means moving up All-New X-Men and from there just about everything else. This week's releases are in. Tonight I'll be looking at two other issues: Venom #31 and Winter Soldier #15 to see if they should be included as optionals. I'll know tomorrow. See you then!

02/04/2013. Hey Everybody, I'm in the midst of research. There will be updates throughout the next few days, but don't fret. Most of this will remain the same. This is all about streamlining the Reading Order puzzle pieces into a better, more thoroughly explained fit.

01/30/2013. OKAY OKAY! Here's what you need to know! There's enough markers out there - Storms Mohawk, Cap's New Unform, The New Spidey, Beast Mutation, etc - that the Reading Order is going to have a strong reorganization in the next week. Starting Monday, some of the issues - specially the ones without Marvel NOW! - are also going to be pulled out.

Hawkeye and Dark Avengers, for example, don't carry the NOW! banner. I also can't find anywhere, specifically, where they are part of the event.

Anyhow, I'm not doing this to aggrevate readers; this is a normal thing that happens as more clues appear. Expect to see the updated Reading Order changes beginning February 4th, 2013. ALSO, if you find something you disagree with - and can provide data to back it up - I'll give you full credit and fix it up. Start researching, folks!

Last Added Note: I'm also in the middle of giving the section a facelift. I might refresh some of the artwork, but more importantly, I'll go through and skim excesses - like this section you're reading right now. If you need to view past update notes, they're at the bottom of the page now.

01/28/2013. Mizagium and ryanmfraser checked in and pointed out that Uncanny X-Force #1 was missed this week. Today I added that in. By the way, this is going to cause another shake-up in the Reading Order because now we'll be able to pinpoint some errors based on Storm's mohawk. Expect some of the sections to be moved around in the weeks to come.

01/23/2013. Added all the updated for this week.

01/16/2013. Added all the updates for this week and gave Spider-man his own section. It will include all the characters from his franchise. Pulled out non-bannered issues and left them as optional.

01/09/2013. Added this week's releases. One thing confusing about Marvel NOW! is the lack of a central theme. It appears varied across the list of heroes. Some are just different. Others, not so much. Guess we'll wait and see what happens. Also, in the coming weeks, look for Spider-Man to have his own section.

01/02/2013. Happy New Year everybody! This week, there are 5 released issues. They've been added to the Reading Order. Just a note. The normal technique until we have hard, chronological evidence, is to break up the event into different sections. Once they start showing us where they fit, we'll be reintegrating them (unless they're better off left alone.)

12/17/2012. Updated this week's releases with two optional issues. They are important because they lead up to two official issues in the event. (Go Spidey!)

12/21/2012. Deadpool and Shoxee1214, two legendary friends, caught my mistake yesterday...even though they warned me earlier..that Hawkeye #6 was missing from the list. Okay, okay, I added it in. You see, people? This is why you make friends!

12/19/2012. Lots of titles releasing this week and it took awhile to summarize them. The Indestructible Hulk titles have been moved near She-Hulk, and The Avengers-based titles have been divided into two separate sections (before and after) to coincide with Captain America changing his uniform. There will be more changes, including a breaking up of the X-Men titles, but that will be next week.

12/14/2012. Completed this week's update; thanks for your patience. Make a point to note that although Amazing Spider-Man #699.1 is not officially a part of Marvel NOW!, its story falls right into the coming Morbius #1 title. Also, if you're following the Indestructible Hulk title, expect it to be moved next to Red She-Hulk just because it's always good to keep your Hulks in one basket. Thanks all!

12/13/2012. Installed some issues today, but plan on doing the bulk of the new releases tomorrow, Friday.

12/10/2012. Picked up and added Red She-Hulk #60 to the list. Thanks to Deadpool for his keen eye! Also added upcoming issues provided by Shoxee. Thanks greatly for keeping me honest!

12/05/2012.This round of releases has been added and given us some idea of the chronology. It's not perfect yet, but one of the key markers is Captain America's costume. We can now place all issues around Avengers #1, where he upgrades.

11/28/2012. Added this round of releases and some of it is giving an indication as to placement. I'm pushing the All-New X-Men series near the end to coincide with Scott Summer's escape - something which doesn't happen until later on.

11/26/2012. Updated the Thanksgiving Day week releases (finally). Hope you all had a good holiday weekend. One thing to look for in the future is a separation of Thor from the Avengers NOW! section. His title and Journey Into Mystery may be put together for a section of their own.

11/19/2012. As anticipated, I've divided the event into sections due to the lack of chronological markers.

11/15/2012. Lots of issues released this week and it was expected. Starting within the next few days, the titles will be broken up into their own correlating sections to contain their plots or affiliated heroes. Expect to see a few more changes very soon.

11/07/2012. Added two issues to the event. One thing we're seeing from Marvel NOW! is a lack of a central plot, just a shake-up of the way things were. They continue to point out that this is not a reboot. And it appears they are right.

11/02/2012. Thanks to Shoxee1214, I realized that A+X #1 belonged in the event. It should have been obvious, but that's why I always make sure I respect the comments section! Thanks for keeping me in check!

10/31/2012. Updated this week. One new issue and two discontinued issues.

10/24/2012. - Updated this week, but there are no specific NOW! releases. Established some brief summaries in the Concluding Titles section.

10/17/2012. - Marvel NOW Point One #1 was released this week.

10/10/2012. - Added the two issues this week, an update section, and made the tie-in from the previous Avengers vs. X-Men event.

So what do you think NOW? - Your comments on this Marvel "event".

      I want to read Avengers Assemble (2012) but so far I'm only just now getting to the Siege event so I'm not at all caught up with the current events and I know 1-8 of Avengers Assemble is kind of on its own, but starting with #9 it'll be connected to NOW! But could I still read it even though I'm not caught up yet or would I be missing a lot?

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      @anonymous: Hey Alicia! Avengers Assemble #1-8 is a strange read for me, but not because it isn't a good read. Basically, it was released to coincide with the Avengers Movie, giving you the Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye team.

      In regards to Avengers Assemble #9, you should be able to skip the previous eight issues. And this is because it directly fits into the NOW! event. In other words, #1-8 is a great story on its own.

      Be sure to check it out, though, it's a great read, especially after watching the Avengers Movie.

      @BlakeCzirr: Oh, I'm def. gonna read #1-8 and I'll probably wait until I catch up to the current releases to start with #9.

      Also, your reading order lists have been AMAZING. I started reading Marvel comics back on December and when it comes to the events they have been a life-saver. Keep up the great work!

      I notice that there's not a 'Siege' page, and since this is the most recent one I figured I'd leave my comment here.

      I kind of need to know where Invincible Iron Man falls in between Dark Reign and Fear Itself. Issues 25-33, and then 500-502 aren't connected to a particular event, but Iron Man/Tony Stark does play a role in Siege, though there are no direct tie-ins of the Invincible Iron Man comics to the event itself. Can the issues 25-33 and 500-502 be read anywhere during the Siege event, just before Fear Itself? I hope this question isn't too confusing; I'm just trying to place those issues of Iron Man when they don't directly connect to an event.

      @anonymous: Hi Megan! Actually, I'm going to be doing a Siege page, but I'm still doing back work on the Secret Invasion. When my Siege page is ready, I will officially list it here. The Superheroes List is is my website and its purpose is to make informative Reading Orders and Summaries.

      With regards to Iron Man, I haven't yet made an attempt to lock down those issues, however, they are strongest right before the Fear Itself event and after Siege; this is when he re-purposes his Repulsor Tech, which he wouldn't have time to do while battling Osborn

      i am commenting for the first time in this site so i don't know the specifics but i am viewing these lenses from start so i want to say to admin (whoever he is) that we should include A+X #1 in reading order because it has Marvel Now! banner on it and if u think that's its reading order is just after AVX then i think we should put it number in reading order just before Marvel NOW! point one. so what say you?

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: ah i just get to know that u created this lens so i want to say we should include A+X #1 in reading order .what do u say.i know u put that in Avengers vs x-men lens but it should also be included here as it has marvel now! banner and part of marvel now!.

      anonymous 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: You're very welcome Blake. If it's any help here are the remaining "Final issues" of the pre-Marvel NOW! era:

      November

      - Avengers Academy #39 (just worth mentioning it since their characters will appear in the upcoming "Avengers Arena")

      - Defenders #12 (already available, the title will be replaced by "Fearless Defenders" starring Valkyrie. Not very relevant but I'll leave it to your criteria)

      - Avengers #34 & New Avengers #34 (Bendis' final story arc before the Marvel NOW! re-shuffling of both rosters)

      December

      - Amazing Spider-Man #700 (come January he becomes Superior, and we'll see Peter's fate in the end since -rumor has it- he won't b behind the mask in the new series)

      - Captain America & "Team-Up" #640 (a team-up series that took Vol. 1's numerology when Cap's past Vol. 6 started, it will end as "Captain America & Black Widow")

      - Uncanny X-Force #35 (the series' roster will be changed once the Vol. 2 starts in Marvel NOW!)

      - Wolverine #317 ("Savage Wolverine" will become his replacement in the Marvel NOW! era)

      January

      - Secret Avengers #37 (the team's roster will change as well with the Vol. 2)

      @anonymous: Thanks for the list MAB. Most of the time, I include anything remotely involved with the event and leave it up to the readers. I have to admit, though, Marvel NOW! seems more like a rebranding of the heroes and their stories. (Not really a single plot, so I'll probably be reworking the page into special sections.)

      @BlakeCzirr: hey hi buddy. i want to say that i have just read Astonishing X-Men Annual 001 (November 2012) and in that Gambit mentioned that "X-Men are working with Avengers and new mutants are popping up". so should we include that annual in this lens or not??? and also i have read highly promoted Amazing Spider-Man #698 and in that issue captain America was seen wearing his Marvel NOW! costume so should this be included??? so tell me these 2 issues should be included in this lens or not.

      MAB reporting again Blake. LOL! Excellent job on the sections, and there's a LOT of work ahead, so I'm giving you lotsof good luck for that journey. P.S.: I've noticed that the Avengers finale has a very notable dialogue between Tony and Cap that I bet will connect with the upcoming series, just worth notice it to future references

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee, good to hear from you again!

      First of all, the shocking revelation in ASM #698 is incredible and probably warrants a part of Marvel NOW! attention. The only thing stopping me is the lack of the official banner on the cover, stating it's part of the event.

      I'll keep it (and the other issue) on my watch list; in a few weeks, I'll know more and may put them on anyway. Thanks for the heads up!

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: yeah sure. hey i also wanted to tell you something, astonishing x-men annual 01 happened just before astonishing x-men #57 . and issue #57 is confirmed to happen in marvel now! time but it may or may not be bannered so i think you can include annual and issues from #57 in this lens.i can provide you a link confirming that but this comment is not accepting links you can see for yourself , go to comicbookresources website and click marvel now! tag.. and i think hawkeye #6 will also be included in marvel now! coz marvel has released its preview which shows a banner same as that of marvel now! but not written marvel now! .you can see that also in cbr website . and now for amazing spiderman i think buddy we can say that #698-700 are prelude to superior spiderman. i think just like AVX consequences we should not include those but we should really mention these as optional. so what's your opinion on these 3 titles? Regards

      @anonymous: Hi Ptit Boy. Right now I'm only adding titles with the Marvel NOW! banner on them, but if I see a non-bannered comic book with heavy involvement, I would also consider it.

    • BlakeCzirr profile image
      Author

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      @Shoxee1214: Axm Annual #1 doesn't really have a Marvel NOW! theme; I'll probably leave it off. If #57 carries the banner or involves some part of the revolution, I'll put it in. (I always wait until release date because lots of things can happen between now and distribution.) Sounds like Hawkeye #6 will make the event, but we'll see. And it does sound like ASM #698-700 will be optional, but once again, I have to see the whole big picture before I commit.

      Those issues are on my watch list. Thanks for the heads up.

      @BlakeCzirr: no prob frnd credit goes to you. i will try to help as much as i can in your all future Marvel projects. i have two question actually.

      1: what your criteria of putting titles in this lens will be? i mean for how long you will continue to include titles issues in this lens . i mean for one story arcs or more? or till marvel now! tag is included on cover?

      2: what about titles which are yet not confirm to get marvel now! banner but are continuing in NOW! era like Astonishing X-Men,X-Factor,Gambit,Venom and Scarlet Spider. they are obviously in NOW! era but haven't yet got now! banner. i think that we should include those whenever we get an idea that YES they are in NOW! era. but final decision is up to you. i want you to give these titles a very very good look and care.

      NOTE: two titles Avenging spider-man #16 and winter soldier #15 will hopefully be getting marvel now! banner.

      @Shoxee1214: Marvel NOW! is a strange event because I'm having a hard time detecting a theme. It's not a reboot (Marvel seems to hate that word), and not about a single world threat bringing the world's heroes together. Really, it's more like the Shattered Heroes event, an aftermath where the heroes put their lives back together.

      Anyhow, because of the wide range of possibilities, I'm (mostly) sticking to the comics that actually have the "Marvel NOW!" banner. Just because they are official. In addition, though, I'm aware that this is all supposed to be about "Join the Revolution". Because of that general theme, if I see a title or issue which seems revolutionary, I'd add it.

      For example, ASM #699.1 is not officially part of the event, but it's an issue that leads into ASM #700 - where Doc Ock takes over, and Morbius #1, both official.

      And overall, if you guys tell me it makes sense, I usually know better than to argue. :)

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: hey yeah i also thin including bannered titles is perfect but be cautious coz i think revolution tag banner will be permanent from now on so do target first arcs .but we will see what happens in fututre. and hey i want to give my opinion actually but in the end just do what you think is more good or what is general consensus. ok that what i think will be more helpful

      1: issue which are a lead in to marvel now! should be optional read like you put AVX consequences. and that's why i think amazing spider-man 699.1 should be put as optional rather than must read. and that's why i also think we should put ASM 698-700 also as optional coz its taking place in now! era as captain america was seen wearing new costume and also peter parker's spider-man is in new avengers title. so i think lead in titles should be put as optional and bannered as must read(reading order).that is why ASM 699.1 is best as optional rather than must read.

      2:titles which are continuing in marvel now! era but haven't yet bannered should be included in must read list coz they are taking place in now! time and are not getting new #1's.

      Note: marvel now! era is in which new mutants are popping up and in which avengers and x-men are teaming up so that is why is said earlier that we should do something about Astonishing x-men annual in which gambit said that new mutants are popping up. so if astonishing x-men does not get bannered then i think we should include that title in reading order starting from annual and from issue #57. same goes for every other not bannered title. i actually read titles when they finish story arcs i will tell you about other non-bannered titles whether they are in NOW! era or not when i read those. you should consider about those.

      and yes that's my opinion Regards :)

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      hey hi Blake.

      Look no offence and believe me when i say i respect your reading order but thing is that if you are adding ASM #700 as optional then why give it a order number like this

      054 Amazing Spider-Man #700

      and yes "if you want to give it a number" then put it like this

      53 Amazing Spider-Man #698

      54 Amazing Spider-Man #699

      55 Amazing Spider-Man #699.1

      56 Amazing Spider-Man #700

      57 Avenging Spider-Man #15.1

      because a reader directly reading #700 will have no idea what is happening . and if you want to give this issue a number in reading order then put complete three issue arc #698-700 in reading order.

      else if you want to put this as optional then i think we shouldnot give it a number, put it like AvX Consequences.

      Thanks bud.

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      @Shoxee1214: No offense at all, my friend. And I'm actually in the middle of the same debate. See, one of the reasons I gave this "option" a number is because it's not part of any other event (unlike AvX Consequences, which I didn't want to list in both events). However, that said, it's likely going to go "numberless" starting next week, or once Superior Spider-Man #1 hits. Since that issue will be bannered, I'll just recommend the 5 issues listed above as a good background, but "optional".

      There are some other issues I may be running into in the future, as well. Like if any of the sections start crossing-over into each other and so forth. Spidey will probably have his own section, too. The point is I gotta stay flexible until the very end.

      Ummm...Sbouldn't Captain America be placed behind every title? The story line has already went on for a year in continuity, and I assume that every other title is happening around the same time. Plus, wouldn't there have been mention about CA's absence in the Avengers or something, if it was placed behind it?

      @anonymous: Excellent question! Although the timeline for Captain America's new title appears to be a year long (at least), it will probably be skewed because he is in another dimension. (Dimension Z). However, it it turns out that cap reappears at a later time, you can bet I'll move it on down the line.

      Good eye, my friend. I'm watching Cap's story with great interest.

      hey hi blake.

      ii wqnted to tell you that even though next week's daredevil #22 will feature superior spider-man but its cover has been released and it's not bannered marvel now! . in NYCC 2012 writer of daredevil said that it will be part of now! with #23 so i think #23 will have now! banner. but to put it in or not is up to you :)

      and yes one more thing you said that after the release of morbius and spiderman you will edit that portion but still you have only listed spider-man #700 as part of reading order. i want to say that what if you recommend these issues (Amazing Spider-Man #699.1,Amazing Spider-Man #700,Avenging Spider-Man #15.1) instead of putting them in reading order. in this way we will have symmetry in whole lense. every title with a banner will be included but a title without banner will only be recommended. what do you think? :)

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee,

      One of the biggest difficulties I'm having with Marvel NOW! is the theme; there's no specific, underlying framework, just lots of upgrades, changes, and reorganizations. So, week to week, I should be reevaluating my own rules on what's acceptable, recommended, etc.

      That said, when Spidey gets his own section (this week), I'm going to start making sure all of them are complete stories. What you're suggesting is probably for the best, but I'll go one step further. If it has the "Join The Revolution" banner, I'll probably make it official as well.

      And for the completely non-bannered, I'll enforce them as "recommended".

      I think we're in agreement, plus it makes the Reading Order more official.

      Hi Blake,

      I've been following this page for a while now. It's been very helpful. I'd like to point out a few chronological notes that I've taken while reading the issues.

      First, I think Captain America should be moved to "The Avengers NOW!" because he's wearing the new uniform from Avengers. Notice the ear muffs and chin strap and the different gloves and boots.

      Iron Man issues have a "serial number" on the first page which seems to be a date. I'm not sure if it is actually a reference to the story or not. 1st issue = 20121207, 2nd issue = 20121122, 3rd issue = 20121205, 4th issue = 20121212. Note that if these are the dates of the stories they are out of sequence.

      Hawkeye #6 should be before Avengers Arena. It has the dates December 13 - December 19. Avengers Arena #1 shows that "Day 1" corresponds to December 24 (it also has a flash-forward to Day 29/January 21). Avengers Arena #3 = December 31.

      Fantastic Four #3 takes place on January 1, 2013. Confirming the current year in the stories as well (see also Iron Man). Oh, another thing about Fantastic Four... All-New X-Men #4 indicates that Reed Richards can't be reached and this is probably a reference to their "vacation". Also note that when he was reached back in Wolverine & the X-Men #19 he was wearing the previous uniform without the "4".

      Speaking of the X-Men... X-men Legacy #1 has a scene that occurs simultaneously with the death of Professor X in Avengers Vs. X-Men. I really think you should split the X-Men "chapter" into "X-Men THEN!" and "X-Men NOW!" with Wolverine & the X-Men and X-men Legacy going into the first and All-New X-men going into the second.

      Sorry this was so long-winded. Just trying to help.

      @anonymous: Hey Jorge, According to my copy, it's not a part of Marvel NOW! So I didn't implement it. As far as where it might fit in scope of this event, I'd probably put it before everything else. Beast hasn't mutated, Venom isn't with Thunderbolts, Spidey doesn't appear to be inhabited by Doc Ock. And to be honest, it's occurring in other dimensions, making it near-impossible to track (right now).

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee. I was expecting to hear from you! That's why I made sure to check back this Friday morning.

      I've been going back and forth on the ReEvolution banners. They're not technically part of Marvel NOW!, but they're a part of the ReEvolution. And since Marvel NOW! is part of the ReEvolution, there's a connection, albeit a weird one.

      Anyhow, I've been trying to "evolve" for the last few days on the ReEvolution-Only bannered titles, and I think I've just about got it figured out. The real question is whether to leave them numbered or put them optional. My thoughts are to give more information on why those should be considered part of the event, even though they lack the NOW! banner.

      It's kinda tricky. Please provide all the pertinent links so I can back up all decisions. And lastly, don't worry, my friend. I won't go dictator and destroy everything. Consider us partners on this quest. I like to be all-inclusive as opposed to ripping everything out. My fear, though, is that the Reading Order is becoming so broad, that it's losing the focus of the Event.

      And with Marvel NOW!, the biggest difficulty is explaining the focus of the event. (As you can see, I keep going back and forth). Ah well. Let me know more of your thoughts. Also, if you have any buddies that want to chime in, make sure they comment.

      As long as the Reading Order ends up efficient, it'll be a success.

      Hey. Just wanted to let you know that I'm working on character chronologies throughout Marvel NOW. I'll post them here soon if you're interested.

      On the subject of the banners and the Marvel Now! theme... it is hard to pin down isn't it? It doesn't seem they've clearly defined anything. I think it would probably be best to keep only those labeled "Marvel NOW!" as official but you almost have to include some, if not all, other Marvel titles as optional for the reading to make sense and/or be enjoyable (see for example AVX Consequences). The "ReEvolution" banner is apparently labeling those comics that are part of Marvel's digital initiative (which includes all Marvel NOW! titles).

      The Marvel NOW! theme seems to be a line-wide jumping-on point post AVX with fresh takes on key characters from new creative teams. I think that's it. I wish they could have called it the "Heroic Age" but they already used that... By the way, I've been collecting the Marvel Season One graphic novels along with Marvel NOW! They compliment each other quite well and seem to be made with that in mind.

      Until next time.

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee, Thanks for the link. The most important thing I remember every week when I do these updates is that I'm, by no means, the final authority. I've also been wrong on a number of occasions. That's why I always make sure I listen to people who comment and keep an open mind. Although I'm titled as the "author" of this list, I always try to give credit to people, such as yourself, who go deep into the details and pick up on things I missed.

      About the article: Yes, that's Axel's weekly with CBR. That week Steve Wacker did an interview and commented about his titles. The most important thing I got out of that is that it's not a NOW! item, but he using the new imaging format as a means to reintroduce his characters.

      That said, I'm going to keep those issues in the list, and provide this info, but make them optional. Once you see it, tell me if you think it works. If now, we'll go to the drawing board and come up with something.

      Me again, Blake, with a comment this time.

      I do like and appreciate the way you're reorganizing everything, i feel I have to ask: is it the Marvel Now! stuff you're covering, or the ReEvolution initiative? Because I think that should dictate how you go about things, Marvel Now being a part of the ReEvolution, but not the other way around, which, honestly is confusing. Who makes two events at the same time, honestly?

      But this is a Monday comment, and I'm sure you've got some plan, but I thought I'd toss my two cents in the jar.

    • BlakeCzirr profile image

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      @Mizagium: You're 100% right. It is a confusing issue between the ReEvolution and NOW!, but I've done some poking around and came up with what appears to be a determining factor.

      Marvel NOW! is actually part of the ReEvolution; as I've interpreted it, it's the initial phase of the ReEvolution. THe ReEvolution is a new concept or "practice" where Marvel intends to adopt the technologies of the digital age to broaden the reader's experience. (Apps, digital comics, Marvel Infinite, and yes, Marvel NOW! is actually considered to be part of it.)

      So, Marvel NOW! is really a one part of that major concept. In response, when I add any issues that don't specifically say Marvel NOW!, I'll probably leave them without numbering and optional.

      Thanks for dropping by. Let me know what you're thinking as this gets manipulated. I appreciate your comments.

      @anonymous: Hey Russ. Yeah, I came up with the same conclusion as you did. The whole NOW! theme is really the initial stage of the ReEvolution. It's part of a tech-savvy publishing initiative as well as a starting point for some of the new changes to the heroes.

      By the way, I'm going to take a look at the Season One Graphics Novels. Now that you've indicated them, I have to see what's going on. Thanks Russ!

      @Shoxee1214: Thanks Shoxee. I've been switching so much stuff around that I knew something would get mixed up. And those 2 issues are optional, but I'm adding them today.

      scarlet spider #13 is also optional but you have included it as numbered

      Just noticed this big time marker (not that it matters anymore, since they're already in the right order) but in Avengers #1, when Tony Stark wakes up Steve Rodgers, he (Rodgers) complains of bad dreams. The panel cuts to Reed, Namor, Black Bolt, and T'Challa - the Illuminati. This would be a bigger deal if Beast's new mutation hadn't switched up the order already, but that would put Avengers #1 (probably) immediately after New Avengers #3, unless more happens in the coming weeks.

      Anyway, thought you might like to know. Happened to be rereading some issues and realized this.

      Hi Blake. I've found your reading orders recently. I was desperate with all new ongoing stories in Marvel NOW! and I decided to stop reading it to prevent my mind from blowing up. Then I found your fantastic reading order and suddenly I'm looking forward to reading it according to your order. You're doing amazing work. Thank you so much! :)

      @Henda17: Hi Henda! Thanks for your kind words. This event has been pretty explosive trying to figure out where everything belongs; that's why I keep close contact with everyone's comments. I've been taken to school, to the woodshed, etc. But one thing I've learned is to listen and the truth will come out.

      Keep in touch! Take care!

      @Mizagium: Yep, once Beast showed up with his new mutation, that blew the Reading Order up. (That was a long day.) Btw, that's new info you just pointed out for me. I missed that "bad dreams" clue. I'll mark it down as a point of chronology. Thanks, my friend!

      @Shoxee1214: And that means I mixed it up. I'll have it fixed this week. Now that I've established the convention for NOW! bannered and ReEvolution-only bannered. Things should get easier from here. Last week tore up the Reading Order pretty good. Anyhow, it's on my list and I'll get that taken care of. Thanks Shoxee!

      @anonymous: The only place I noted that editorial note was in the short flashback Flash had with Peter Parker. I think the rest of it is set in "Present Time". I think we're okay, but I'll recheck the issue just to make sure. Thanks Spidergeek.

      When Age of Ultron debuts, is that going to be here, or not? It's technically part of Marvel NOW! (if I remember correctly) but is itself a crossover event.

      Just more confusion, I suppose :/

      hey hi blake

      just wanted to tell and ask somethings

      *daredevil #23 is not bannered marvel now!

      as you are also including revolution bannered titles as optional so i wanted to ask how many issues of those you will put there . i think first arc will be good coz from now on it seems revolution banner is permanent so that's why it will not be possible to include every issue. so i think you should target their first arcs

      *dark avengers (arc #184-188) cancelled in may with #190 so i think it will be good to include it till #190

      *hawkeye (all single issue stories no arcs)

      *scarlet spider (arc #13-15)

      *avenging spider-man (single issue stories)

      *captain marvel (i think #9-12)

      *x-factor (#250-255 or 254)

      *gambit (#8-12 perhaps)

      *venom and winter soldier (no idea)

      what i am trying to say is like shattered heroes and other lenses i think you are also targeting only their first arcs that's why I've written them.

      and yes it seems like marvel now! banner is running through august 2013 coz thanos rising will run through august and also captain america first arc was said to be of 10 issues which will run through august also,

      Remember its just my opinion you should do what you think is right . I'll be here for help :)

      @Mizagium: well yeah it was mentioned that Age of Ultron is taking in Marvel NOW! timeline but actually its #1 cover is released and its not supporting Marvel NOW! banner. But as this lens is including anything which is happening in Marvel NOW! era so I think its up to Blake(creator of this lens) to include it or not. (But including it will be cool as readers will get to know that what is happening before or after Age of Ultron. But that's just my opinion :P )

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      hey hi blake. it was announced earlier by Indestructible Hulk writer that this title is taking place right after avengers vs x-men. he said that hulk is missing after that events of AvX and nowhere to be seen and then maria hill encountered him. so i think it should be at the top of list.

      and one more thing Hulk is seen as an avenger in Avengers Assemble so it should be after he joined shield and avengers so i think Avengers Assemble is tricky to be placed because in Avengers #1(in a past scene) iron man and cap discussed to include hulk in Avengers and also in that issue cap changed his costume but in Avengers Assemble he is supporting old costume. so what your idea?

    • profile image

      Henda17 4 years ago

      @Shoxee1214: Hi Shoxee. Sorry for interfere in comment that is aimed at Blake but I needed to share my opinion. Yeah, you're definitely right. Avengers Assemble series is definitely one of the trickiest. Initially created as a perfect jumping-on point for the movie fans as it was featuring basically the cast of The Avengers blockbuster, the series continuity is not well worked-out, IMO. Apart from what you have mentioned, the placement of this series at the top of the list is also supported by the fact that Iron man wears his old red and gold armor while in Avengers as well as in Incredible Hulk he wears his new black and gold armor. But there is still this Hulk-included thing in Avengers Assemble. There are two possibilities, in my opinion, either the continuity of Avengers Assemble is totally messed up or the events of Avengers Assemble up to #11 take place before the end of AvX. We'll see what other issues bring, maybe some Hawkeye/Black Widow markers in comparison with Secret Avengers.

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      ok blake i have seen some HUGE ERRORS in reading order after reading few titles of Avengers and some other series.

      i think following information would be good regarding Avengers creation and roster.just bear with it.

      i have divided a first arc of Avengers in a timeframe. Following information is from Avengers #1 to #5

      Avengers #1 to #3

      Day 0 (past)

      *captain america saw a dream which resemble a scene in new avengers #3 meaning those happened before that.

      *Captain America and iron man are taking about putting up a new big team because something big will happen according to iron man.

      *they said that thor,hawkeye,black widow and hulk will be in team with these two.Then they began to recruit others.

      *they recruit wolverine, spider-man(peter parker), captain marvel, spider woman, falcon, sunspot, cannonball, shang chi and manifold.

      *Smasher is shown standing in fields, hyperion is in custody of A.I.M and captain universe is watching avengers tower from a window in a building's room.

      Day 31 (one month later, present day)

      *Cap, iron man, thor, hulk,hawkeye and widow are going to mars on a mission and after a fight cap is send to earth by enemies.

      Day 34 (three days later )

      *cap awakens and give a call to every person they recruited earlier.

      *Captain America wears his "NEW COSTUME"

      * Hyperion,smsher and captain universe are also shown to be in a team meaning they joined sometime after

      Day 0 and also wolverine said that they (team) have been together for just six hours.

      Avengers #4

      *we get to know that hyperion was freed by avengers sometime after Day 0 but before Day 34

      Avengers #5

      *We get to know that on Day 0 smahser found her glasses and returned to earth on day 31 and was advised by her grandpa to join avengers.

      ERRROS

      -so now thing is that in Avengers assemlbe we have hulk,captain marvel and spider-woman in roster and cap is also wearing old costume which means it happened sometime before day 34 and after Day 0 . and in Avengers Assemble we have an avengers team but problem is that avengers team is created in avengers #1 so don't you think we should put assemble issues after avengers issues so that readers get to know that when actually avengers team was created.??

      -(Again)Hulk was not seen for few weeks after Avengers vs x-men but then appear after few weeks.this happened before Day 0 because hulk is still not in avengers as we saw iron man came to meet hulk.so indestructible hulk

      should be before Avengers #1

      and as for source here is a link

      ( http : // marvel . com/news/story/19195/marvel_now_qa_indestructible_hulk )

      -in All-NEW X-Men #6 or #7 mystique shows fake wolverine's avengers card to police which means wolverine is already in avengers roster at that time so this proves that all-new x-men should also be placed after avengers issues.

      -On Day 34 the spiderman fighting side by side avengers was peter parker . and till #5 there is no superior spiderman shown so it means superior spiderman issues should be placed after avengers too.

      -Iron man changed his costume between Day 0 and Day 34 which means avengers assemble issues and iron man issues happened in that timeframe but iron man issues happened after assemble issues because of new costume.

      So blake that was it for now . ihope you will make these changes after reading and verifying also.LET ME KNOW if you don't get any point

      Blake i have read some titles and created a following order (and yes you are right assemble should be put on top because #9-12 feature old incarnation of

      avengers directly succeeding Bendis' run)

      Following is a order

      -Avengers Assemble #9-12

      -Wolverine and the X-Men #19-23

      -Marvel NOW! Point One

      -Iron Man #1-4

      -Indestructible Hulk #1-3 (hulk seen for the frst time after avx and iron man new armor)

      -New Avengers #1-3 (#3 has iron man new armor)

      Day 0 (Iron Man and Captain America Discussion and Avengers Recruitment)

      Day 31 (Avengers battle on Mars for the first time)

      -Avengers #1

      Day 34 (Cap New Costume,Avengers Big Roster and Avengers return to earth after winning a battle)

      -Avengers #2-4

      After Day 34

      -Avengers #5

      -Superior Spider-Man #1-3 (till avengers #5 there is a peter parker in Avengers roster)

      -Avenging Spider-Man #16

      -All-New X-Men #1-7 (beast transforms so should be after Avenging spiderman #16)

      -Wolverine and the X-Men #24,25

      -Red She-Hulk #58-62

      Dangling

      -Fantastic FOur/FF #1-4,#1-3 (Actually FF character were shown to be celebrating a new year, so that's a great marker but i've no idea where to put it.)

      -Iron Man #5-6 (#5 should be placed immediately before #6 because iron man left for space in the end of #5)

    • profile image

      anonymous 4 years ago

      I would place A+X #2 before Iron Man 1-5 because he is sporting his old costume. As for A+X #4, I think it's safe to place it before Superior Spider-Man and All New X-Men. Superior Spider-Man should be placed behind Avengers #1-3 because Regular Spidey is seen in those issues. Plus, you may want to move Uncanny Avengers up because it seems like it takes place directly after Avengers vs. X-Men and Cap is wearing an older costume than the one he donned in Avengers...This is chaos man...

      ahh i know i have already said many things but what can i do i am a marvel-holic .well thing is blake as this is marvel now! lens its my humble request and opinion that it should be a total Marvel NOW! package. thing is as we know what comes after Marvel NOW! will be revealed in Thanos Rising as written in solicitations and judging from free comic book day teaser it would be a new crossover called INFINITY which will debut in fall. so Marvel NOW!(Banner at least) is expected to run through August 2013 at least. so i want to say that as this lens should be a total package so it should include all marvel NOW! timeframe titles (not nessarily bannered) so it should give a fantastic reading experience. it should be like a grand project like a DARK REIGN lens. so for it to be complete i think this a material that should be included at least.

      1:All Marvel NOW! titles.

      2:All titles that fall in Marvel NOW! timeline (Revolution bannered)

      3:Age of Ultron (YES IT SHOULD BE HERE. because in age of ultron fantastic four will be on earth which means they have completed their journey so by fitting everything in order will be a very good)

      4:X-Termination mini crossover (Yes i know you will be confused then listen as you have put daredevil #22 in list because it included superior spiderman even though that issue was neither revolution bannered nor now! bannered but you have included and yes you have done a perfect task by doing this. so thing is Astonishing X-Men #60 will be a start for X-Termination but in #57 we get a glimpse of Storm in old hair and costume in wolverine's team meaning its in marvel now! time already because storm joined x-men in Marvel NOW! bannered WATXM #19. so its necessary to include it blake.)

      Hope You will give notice to all my opinions and comments.

      In the end i think including everything i mentioned will make this a perfect and complete MARVEL NOW! Reading Order. Regards

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      you have put it like this

      1:Spider-Man Now!

      2:All-New X-Men Now!

      3:Avengers Now!

      in avengers #1-5 there is peter parker spider-man so Avengers be above superior spider-man and all-new x-men

      so correct order will be

      1: Avengers (peter parker spider-man)

      2:spider-man (superior spider-man) (old beat in avenging spider-man)

      3:all-new x-men (beast get transformed)

      Note: in New Avengers #3 you said beast is TRANSFORMED. hey isn't that old form of beast if not then adjusting these three sections will not be possible because this will put new avengers below all of them and also below avengers which is not possible . so??

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      the Chapter 4: The Jean Grey School of Higher Learning NOW! should be like this

      Astonishing X-Men Annual 01 (gambit mentions that new mutants are popping up signaling marvel now! era)

      009 Wolverine and The X-Men #19

      Astonishing x-men #57-58 (storm is seen as x-men and in old costume and hair)

      010 Wolverine and The X-Men #20

      011 Wolverine and The X-Men #21

      012 Wolverine and The X-Men #22

      013 Wolverine and The X-Men #23

      hope you will give it a try . its just like a daredevil #22 thing and yes remember total package lens pal :)

      Hi there Blake, just to mention you forgot one key point in Avengers Arena #4 and is that Chase finds the Darkhawk amulet, and now has taken the mantle of Darkhawk since Chris Powell (the original one) went M.I.A.

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      Hey Blake check this order ,i have read following issues and set them in their best order you can see many differences between this and your order. you have put uncanny avengers after avengers but its wrong coz uncanny avengers has cap old costume and also superior spiderman should be after avengers coz in avengers #1-3 we have peter parker and then superior spiderman meet old beast in avenging meaning all-new x-men will be after avenging spiderman and all avengers section.

      Following is a order

      Avengers Assemble #9-12

      AvX Consequences #1-4 (iron man old armor ,cyclops is in jail)

      Atonshing X-Men Annual #1 (New Mutants are born)

      Wolverine and the X-Men #19-23 (storm joins wolverine's x-men)

      Astonishing X-Men #57-58 (storm is in wolverine's x-men)

      Marvel NOW! Point One

      Iron Man #1-4 (iron man new armor)

      Deadpool #1 (captain america's old costume)

      Uncanny Avengers #1-3 (iron man's new armor but captain america's old costume)

      Cable and x-force #1 (uncanny avengers with old captain america's costume)

      Indestructible Hulk #1-3 (hulk hasn't joined avengers yet,iron man's new armor)

      New Avengers #1-3 (issue #3 has iron man new's armor ,BUT is this "OLD" or "NEW" Beast,i hope its old beast or else a disaster will happen to reading order!!!)

      Avengers #1-4 (captain america's new costume, peter parker is spiderman)

      Avengers #5

      A+X #1 (wolverine and hulk are in avengers tower meaning both have already joined avengers)

      A+X #2 (rogue mentioned her being an avenger, BUT in second story iron man is in old armor but we should put this issue here)

      A+X #3 (storm mentioned being in school and hawkeye mentioned being an avenger)

      A+X #4 (beast is untransformed and spiderman is peter,in second story cap has new costume)

      Captain Marvel #9

      Hawkeye #6 (peter parker is spiderman and they are avengers)

      Amazing Spider-Man #698-700 (captain america's new costume and superior spiderman is born)

      Superior Spider-Man #1-3

      Avenging Spider-Man #16 (storm is in wolverine's team and has old hair, BEAST is also not transformed)

      Daredevil #22

      Fantastic FOur #1-4 (FF characters were shown to be celebrating a new year, so that's a great marker)

      FF #1-3

      Iron Man #5-6 (#5 should be placed immediately before #6 because iron man left for space in the end of #5)

      AvX Consequences #5 (captain america's new costume and cyclops is still in jail)

      All-New X-Men #1-7 (cyclops is just out of jail, beast transforms so should be after Avenging spiderman #16,storm's long hair,iron man and mr fantastic were said to be not responding calls meaning both are on their journeys)

      Wolverine and the X-Men #24,25 (storm's mohawk in #24)

      Red She-Hulk #58-62 (captain america's new costume and iron man new armor)

      Give this a good look and adjust slight errors. and i have written many things in my many comments . Blake do answer my all comments. because with this discussion we can set this order with precision.

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @Henda17: oh no problemo.

      yeah thing is if it took before AvX then how come captain marvel be in a new costume?

      so this points that #8-11 really happened after AvX . ok now thing is that how come hulk be an avengers when iron man is in his old armor but in indestructible hulk iron man is new armor and hulk hasn't joined avengers yet.ohh its so tricky. so we can assume that hulk was temporarily with them and then left and then after meeting iron man in new armor decided to join again :P . what can i say i think that would be our only assumption

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @Mizagium: yeah i also found this little error after reading consequences. but thing is in cable and x-force cap is in his old costume but in consequences #5 he is in his new costume. so i take it that's a glitch from marvel so i think it would be great for cable title to be put after avengers because we have to prefer story over costumes. but its true this really is an error by marvel. gr8 Mizagium

      and there is also a similar kind of problem with new avengers #3 but it's a big one. if there is transformed beast in new avengers #3 then how come there be a beast in avenging spiderman #16 where peter parker is not spiderman???

      any guess??

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @anonymous: The thing with the A+X issues is that the writers specifially make a point of ignoring continuity. Sure, they kinda fit in places, but I don't think we shoukd try to chronologize (if that isn't a word, it is now) them if they aren't meant to.

      one more thing i want to know whether you (both) like age of ultron titles to be placed here?? actually AU is also taking place in now! timeframe if it will be put here then we will have a complete smooth now! reading order. so what do you say?? we can convince a creator of this lens to put those titles here when they released if we give him a solid reason for this.

      hey hi blake. i've just seen punisher war zone #1-4 and found out that it also fall in marvel now! time.in fact it actually is taking place after avengers #1-3 but before superior spiderman. in this limited series iron man is seen in new armor, captain america is in new costume but without mask and spiderman is peter parker. so i think these details make this limited series worthy of being included here.

      and in the end following are the titles or series which fall in marvel now!

      *punisher war zone #1-5

      *x-termination (crossover)

      *age of apocalypse

      Hey Shoxee, Alpha Big time #1 Alpha is to be under Peter Parkers Training... This Should go before Amazing Spiderman #692 or #693 which both are the same story, that's where you see Johnny Storm talking about alpha being spiderman's sidekick . Therefore it would not be in Marvel Now yet

      Shoxee sorry about that i was thinking you meant the 0.1 Alpha

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @Deadpool: hey no prob. 0.1 was actually a reprint . real story starts in #1 and will conclude in #5 and it is happening after Amazing #700 and its writer said that. so this puts it in marvel now! .

      well still there are many things to set straight in this lens. i wonder what's taking Blake so long to reply. once and when he will i think then many thing will get right.

      @JamesBond07: hey hey no .let me tell you something in avengers we saw peter parker spiderman and then after that superior spiderman is born and then in avenging spiderman we see superior spiderman teaming with x-men with old(untransformed) beast so this put all-new x-men after avenging spiderman. so in this way all-new x-men is also after avengers. see ???

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee! I consider it to be the mutated version. He's got a "Hellboy" look to him, though and seems like a cross between the old and new one. One thing I look for is the nose to be more pushed in.

      Hey Shoxee, Spidergeek, Mizagium, et al. Sorry for the late replay, but we had a huge storm in the midwest and it took us from online to sporadic for the last two weeks. What I did was set your comments to approve automatically. That also means that I probably missed some of them.

      I am hearing about your discrepancies and trying to read back through the forums. If I miss them in the coming week, please let me know. This list is really huge and I'll try to get it right. I'll definitely use your keen insight, too.

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: ok blake i want to say two things. first is that can you include following stuff in this lens

      *Punisher War Zone #1-5 (cap new costume)

      *Alpha #1-(right after ASM #700)

      *Age of Ultron (said by marvel that its taking place in NOW!)

      *X-Termination (crossover, this also takes place in NOW! time because Astonishing X-Men #57 saw storm in wolverine's team)

      these are all taking place in now! era. and including these all will make this lens a perfect NOW! reading order. do include these all titles. if you don't want to then do tell why?? ok.

      Not to be a nitpicker, but shouldn't Nova #1 and Guardians #0.1 be placed ahead of everything else? Considering that both of them are flashback (Nova to Six Months Ago, which is actually before AVX; and Guardians is thirty and twenty years ago).

      I wonder then if the Godkiller arc leads to Iron Man being on the team or not...

      @Shoxee1214: i don't think Punisher: War Zone should be included. It doesn't carry the Marvel NOW! or the Join the R'Evolution Banner. It's not a part of this event.

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      @Mizagium: Well, I'll have to take another look at the Nova #1 issue, but in the Guardians issue they bring it to present day where Iron Man is already in space.

      Iron Man has had two story arcs so far.

      Believe is a 5-part arc. This is where Tony changed into the new modular armor and hunted down all the rampant extremis tech in the world.

      AvX Godkiller is where Tony decides to go into space, ultimately confronting alien justice concerning the Phoenix.

      Guardians of The Galaxy #0.1, on the other hand, occurs after AvX Godkiller; Tony is already out in space.

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee, checked out all the titles you listed.

      Punisher War Zone is not Marvel NOW! and also not ReEvolution.

      Alpha is ReEvolution, but not Marvel NOW!, so I'll put it as optional.

      Age of Ultron is it's own event and not Marvel NOW! and I've seen nothing that says it is; would you provide me the line showing this is part of Marvel NOW!? I'm actually giving Age of Ultron its own page.

      X-Termination is not Marvel NOW! or ReEvolution.

      Hey Shoxee, I appreciate all your suggestions, but I can't throw every issue in here just because they have the costume changes. Some of these costumes are going to be around for a long, long time. Anyhow, that's why I'm putting the ReEvolution issues as "optional". Part of the deal is that they have to have the "Marvel NOW!" banner to be part of the official list. If they lack "Marvel NOW!", but have "ReEvolution", I'll put them as optional.

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee, this is very good info, but I can only address a few issues at a time. In this specific post, I'd like to talk about the first block of issues on your list.

      Marvel Point One is officially the start of Marvel NOW! event. It's got to be the first issue because Marvel "Point One" issues are always the official starting points. So that's why I put it first and Avengers Assemble next.

      I put Captain America issues next because he's in his older uniform in issue #1 (Not a chin strap and helmut, but a face-mask).

      You have Uncanny Avengers next. I specifically see multiple panels with Cap wearing a chin-strap and helmet. Specifically page 9 and 10 where he is talking to Havok; that's the new uniform and that means Uncanny Avengers occur after Avengers #1

      Also, I don't consider the Beast and Storm pictures on issue #4 to be a glitch. Those pictures are a projection of the Red Skull, not the official representation, and I give the artist discretionary freedom to draw the villains however Red Skull wants.

      And lastly, about The Beast: I am recording to version of the character:

      1) Cat-faced Beast with whiskers, the BEFORE version, and

      2) Hellboy-flat-faced Beast with no whiskers, the AFTER version.

      In New Avengers #4, that's the AFTER version. No whiskers. Wearing goggles and tech gear doesn't really make a difference.

      If you want to make your case, what I might do is put up a post on my website and see if others want to chime in. I'm always willing to go along with the consensus.

      BlakeCzirr 4 years ago

      Hey Shoxee, I'm adding one more comment because I'm still willing to listen to arguments about The Beast. The thing is, I still see all sorts of Beast Versions running about. There's the real old one that appears in Jean Grey's dream in All-New X-Men #5, the cat-whiskered one in All-New X-Men #1-4, and the newest incarnation at the end of #5 and beyond.

      Looking more closely at New Avengers #3, you may be right that that's the older version of the Beast. I say we hold off until we see more. If his appearance changed during New Avengers, we'll have a definitive marker.

      @BlakeCzirr: yeah sure . but there i am really confused about uncanny avengers.

      look you are saying that it is happening after avengers because cap is supporting chin strap but not 'painted' wings. well i say it is happening before avengers because look because in uncanny avengers cyslops is in jail and also professor x funeral takes place in that issue. while avengers is taking place one month after cap and iron man discussion which means it at least one month later AvX. well noe we cannot assume that they buried professor x more than one month later. and yes marvel also said that uncanny avengers is a somewhat foolowup to AvX #12. so this really means uncanny avengers should be way up in the order. what do you think now?

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: yeah i think best solution is to wait for future issues of new avengers . but i will go with old form in new avengers #3 because new transformed beast do not have so much facial hair. while in new avengers #3 beast is supporting facial hair like his old form.

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @Shoxee1214: hey blake you have put uncanny avengers after avengers while cyclops is in jail BUT you have put all-new x-men before avengers in which cyclops has bee already freed from jail . boy oh boy that a big error .

      Mizagium 4 years ago

      @BlakeCzirr: You're right about Age of Ultron, Blake. I kept hearing stuff around about it being a Marvel NOW! event, but they released the cover art for Age of Ultron #1 on Marvel.com and it carries neither the Marvel NOW! nor the ReEvolution banner. Hopefully that event will be less confusing.

      Blake, you are dedicated to keep up with this mess :P

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @Mizagium: well blake as cap costume is a major marker i want to highlight somethings about cap costume. actually due to different artists interpretations and styles cap costume is really a confusing topic so i think right now cap is supporting four different types of costumes

      1: old traditional costume with metal wings . (new avengers #1-3)

      2: helmet type costume with chin strap and metal wings (uncanny avengers #1-4)

      3: new marvel now! costume with painted wings and chin "Cover" not chin strap. (end of avengers #1)

      4: costume with metal wings and chin cover (uncanny x-men #2 and captain america #1)

      well interestingly in captain america #1 cap is supporting 4rth type of costume while in #2 he is seen in 3rd type of costume with painted wings.

      well you can see now i think we should assume that permanent costume of cap will be of 3rd and 4rth type with chin cover not chin strap which

      is in uncanny avengers.

      and if we flow story wise then we can also judge that uncanny avengers is way before in story and not to forget that marvel writers said that unanny avengers is the first glimpse of post AvX universe.

      @Shoxee1214: You make some good points. Perhaps that scene is just a memorial or a flashback. Marvel is always sketchy like that. Plus, one thing I've learned is that Comic Book Writers love to jump around the timeline in their books. It makes it hard on us.

      What I would say is that Cyclops has been in jail for about a month, and Xavier's funeral happened anywhere from a week or two after he was killed; it probably took time because of all the damage that occurred before everyone could get together.

      The funny thing about the Reading Order is that all these issues only cover about a month's worth of time. Do you disagree? It's a bunch of near-simultaneous adventures. Marvel really shoved a bunch of stuff into this event; It's one of the biggest I've had to follow.

      Also, I just put up an Age of Ultron page. I might tie it into this one, but because it's a big event, I'm giving it its own reading order and summaries.

      Hey guys, I know that this event is huge with over a hundred issues in the reading order; but isn't this about a month to 2 months of timespan in the Marvel Universe? I think I read somewhere about 6 or 8 weeks have passed at most. That means a lot of the events are happening near-simultaneous.

      @BlakeCzirr: yeah you are right. hey as in avengers #1 we see that tony and cap have that discussion one month before which means avengers #1 was more than one month after AvX and

      in uncanny avengers #4 we see at the end that 3 month later ultron robots are destroying world and uncanny avengers are running away from them . we can assume that that teaser was of age of ultron and then considering first story arc of uncanny avengers which happened immediately after AvX we can say that there is 3 month plus some days gap between AvX and Age of Ultron :-)

      hey blake if you really want to stick with uncanny avengers after avengers then no prob do as you want to its your thing man

      but how can you say that in one comic book some scenes are flashbacks and some are not without being mentioned oh come on

      in uncanny avengers #1 professor's funeral and havok's visit to cyclops in jail is taking place parallely and then when havok

      decided to leave then cap and thor meet him and asked him to become head of new avengers and then during their discussion

      attack takes place and then continue till #4

      now how in the world this can be a flashback ohhhhhhh come on blake

      how much more will i have to tell that whole fight of uncanny avengers #1-4 is way way before avengers.

      Mizagium 4 years ago

      @Shoxee1214: While I agree with the sentiment, the end of Uncanny Avengers wasn't a clue to Ultron, at least as far as I can tell. It's a clue to the next story arc in Uncanny Avengers that has to do with the Apocalypse Twins.

      If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I don't think that's an Age of Ultron cliffhanger.

      @Mizagium: well i'm not saying that its confirmed. actually its writer said that uncanny avengers #8AU will not be a simple tie-in but it will be a big issue to his complete story arc which will also play in age of ultron so judging from his words i said that.

      hey blake i have noticed that due to many comments you was not able to see my one comment. i don't agree with you on uncanny avengers being after avengers . you said that particular cyclops scene could be flashback and that's just unbelievable man how can you say that.i'm copy pasting my comment which you didn't notice. here it is when you said that that scene was flashback

      "believe me no offence but hey when did that type of assumption became legal in this reading order .

      hey blake if you really want to stick with uncanny avengers after avengers then no prob do as you want to its your thing man but how can you say that in one comic book some scenes are flashbacks and some are not without being mentioned oh come on.

      in uncanny avengers #1 professor's funeral and havok's visit to cyclops in jail is taking place parallely and then when havok decided to leave then cap and thor meet him and asked him to become head of new avengers and then during their discussion attack takes place and then continue till #4. now how in the world this can be a flashback ohhhhhhh come on blake how much more will i have to tell that whole fight of uncanny avengers #1-4 is way way before avengers."

      hope you will again read uncanny avengers and read previous interviews of writers (which i could not find) in which they said again and again that its really first thing after AvX. and yes main thing is story flow which is clearly showing that uncanny is way before everything. Regards

      @Shoxee1214: So then Avengers must be...before AvX? I'm not arguing, I'm trying to understand what's going on. Maybe the costume change isn't as important as we assumed...

      But that does not sit well in my gullet.

    • profile image

      Shoxee1214 4 years ago

      @Mizagium: so this means you didn't get my point. look i'm also trying to say that story matters main when costumes conflict occurs. but Avengers is set at least one month after AvX as it was shown in #1 that one month has been passed since tony and cap discussion. but uncanny avengers is immediately after AvX as in AvX #12 it was said that cap is putting new team and you can also see story flow. and just don't say you also think that cyclops jail scene in uncanny avengers #1 was a flashback

      from avengers #1-3 the spiderman is doc ock version or superior spiderman version so blake you will have to put superior spiderman after avengers section. as yes you can confirm by doing slight research because Avengers writer said clearly that superior spiderman will make its debut in avengers #6 . so you have to move another section my friend :-)

      @Shoxee1214: Hey Shoxee, don't worry, I always appreciate your comments.

      I definitely understand why you're adamant about Uncanny Avengers being before Avengers; it's because they have the Xavier Funeral and the Summer's meeting.

      But in the timeline, the Avengers, All-New X-Men, and Uncanny Avengers are running near-simultaneous. The Avengers reformation occurs at the end of Avengers #1; that reformation is where Captain America adopts his new costume. In Uncanny Avengers #1, Captain America is now in that costume and creating the new mutant-human supergroup. And actually, creating the Uncanny Avengers would fit perfectly into the new Avengers theme from Avengers #1, so that's why I have it this way.

      It could change, but for now I'd like to leave it alone.

      @BlakeCzirr: well i asked that question to Tom . actually thing is in uncanny avengers #1 its not new costume of cap. Tom said that cap have multiple costumes. and there is also a thing that avengers #1 is taking 1month after at least AvX but uncanny avengers is happening just after AvX. look AvX #12 in the end cap said that he is forming new team. and these things are also confirmed by marvel and Tom. i'm not able to find those links but believe me it is as i said and you can also see story.

      SOOOOO uncanny avengers is way before avengers. i can't agree with you. sorry but its true.

      Blake, I came down here to the comment all riled up to argue about Beast in New Avengers, but on the way, I happened to go back and open New Avengers #3 and All-New X-Men #5 to the relevant pages and now find myself in support of that decision. Varying art styles can be a pain in the rump, huh?

      Anyway, it's good to see you're listening to what we all say down here (even though we don't like to agree on much) and that you have a firm grasp of your sanity, still.

      Anyway, thanks for the update. It's funny to see how the order has shifted since waaaaay back in...October? God has it been that long...?

      @Mizagium: It's been a long one. Some events will go six months; but the really hard thing about this is lack of a central theme. I'm having a hard time seeing a conclusion to NOW!

      Thanks for your comments, my friend!

      Well, looks like Marvel NOW! isn't going to end any time soon. Marvel just announced Avengers A.I. which carried both the NOW! and R'Evolution banners. I guess you still have your work cut out for you.

      Hey i noticed in your description for Uncanny X-Men 1, you said there was no chronological marker. Im not sure if this adds a specific marker, but you could say Uncanny X-Men takes place some time after the first 6 or 7 issues of All New X-Men. My only evidence for this is that in All New X-Men, present Cyclops is shown still sporting his all blue costume whereas in Uncanny, hes in the red and black get up.

      I am not here to disparage anything you've done, however, I believe that Marvel NOW! is not at all an "event" in the sense that you are assuming. If you look at it as more a reformation rather than a finite story to be told, you may have an easier time with the organization of your list.

      That being said, thank you for making the effort to "simplify" this mess of continuity into a more comprehensive and logical reading guide.

      @anonymous: Hey atomchild, just wanted to let you know that I'm on the same page with you. I've been expecting some "defining" characteristic or event, but actually it's just a reformation or reinvention of their universe and heroes/villains. That's what I'm working on this week; To organize it based on that.

      Hey, i noticed that none of the Captain Marvel issues are part of your reading order?

      Is captain marvel not part of Marvel NOW?

      thanx for the great work by the way :)

      @anonymous: Hi there. Excellent observation on your part. Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, and some of the other issues have "Join The ReEvolution", but not "Marvel NOW!". Originally, I placed them here, but they were optional. What's happening lately is two things: 1) The list is growing huge, so I'm weeding out as many optionals as I can, and 2) The people who run Squidoo and control the TOS don't want this page to grow much larger.

      In the near future, I will probably have to pull the summaries and place them on other pages, just so I can keep the Reading Order in a single, uniform spot. It's kinda yucky, but that's how it has to be.

      Hey Blake, Marvel NOW! "oficially" ended last week. All issues which were released this week were labeled only with Marvel sign. As we can see now, it was only a concept to draw an attention of new readers. Nevertheless, what happened with you, man? Did you give up? If so, i totally understand. It was so hard with all those different titles. However, you can get ready for the Infinity. It should be way much easier... ;-) Wish the best! :-)

      Hey Blake... I've seen that you moved Age of Ultron lense, hope I'm not bothering you again with this consult: Indestructible Hulk, in its current arc, is dealing with the Age of Ultron Aftermath, just like Iron Man has done in its previous arc. Will you consider to put this as the Age of Ultron Aftermath?

      Thanks again :D

      @juank-pipoca: Hey my friend. Your comments are never a bother, especially since you're keeping me in touch with things that need to be done.

      I plan on doing the Age of Ultron Aftermath and the Battle of The Atom events today. Battle of the Atom should appear on Squidoo and the Age of Ultron Aftermath will be on my website. I'll be tying the the AU and AUA pages together.

      After that, I'll be fixing up my Marvel NOW! stuff.

      Cool reading guide! I never thought about doing an issue by issue look at the "era's" as it were. Maybe we can do some interlinking on each others guides?
