See below for a full list of screenshots of the panel’s announcements and key notes on the discussion points!
The Immortal Hulk #33 will be 40 pages long and body horror is back. Apparently the goal is to make readers vomit.
Leader returns in The Immortal Hulk #34. The story is said to be about the Leaders relationship with the green door.
The Immortal Hulk #36 is described as “a heart-breaking episode”.
In The Immortal Hulk #37, the thing in the tube gets out of the tube. Readers, take what you will.
An “obscure character” is said to be making a return somewhere in The Immortal Hulk, but Al Ewing won’t provide any more information.
Upcoming in Donny Cates’ Thor run, Galactus is going to be getting more powerful and Thor is going to be “pulling at his leash”.
The first arc will be the new bible of Thor and will have the hammer getting heavier and heavier. There will also apparently be a return to Oklahoma.
Donny Cates says he is having fun with the Ravens, but they aren’t ravens!
Second arc of Thor seals with the fallout of Thor’s choices. He’s not the only Asgard making compromises. It is a horror arc and someone is hunting familiar faces. The frog is in danger
Black Panther #25 will be Ta-Nehisi’s FINAL issue.
Strange academy’s main character is a girl from the Midwest that doesn’t know what to do with herself and reaches out to Dr. Strange by letter. The rest of the cast includes a fairy from Otherworld, Gus the Frost Giant, and Doyle Dorromoru.
Cates says that Strange Academy “has a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel”.
In Amazing Spider-Man, we will find out why Kingpin is after Boomerang.
Kindred finally comes face to face with Spidey in issue #44.
The question at hand is not “Who is kindred? But what does he want?”
Amazing Spider-Man will have both Chance AND Sin Eater coming back.
Lethal Legion back in issue #46.
Amazing Spider-Man #47 is a “break glass” situation and will have everyone talking. Spidey does something no one thought he would…
Amazing Spider-Man #850 is coming with a twist no one will see coming!
Venom #25 is a retrospective issue that will be the end of phase 1 and act as a goodbye to old stories. Then it’s on to new things including a brand-new character Virus who is out for Venom’s heart, Dylan.
The Maker has the ultimate Symbiote and his plans he seen in issue #26.
There will be a Free Comic Book Day X-Men story by Tom Taylor but no one is allowed to talk about it yet.
Free Comic Book Day is said to have the first appearance of Virus.
Guardians of the Galaxy will have two teams and the muscled beefcake character is the Prince of Power.
The Moon Dragon of Earth-616 is back in issue #5 and faces off with the Guardian’s Moon Dragon.
Outlawed and Strange Academy do not relate since no one knows about the Academy at the time.
Strange Academy is set to have teachers that readers know weaving in and out. MAYBE Pixie of the X-Men. They are trying not to overwhelm anyone and focus on the coming of age stories of the new characters.
Marvel called the writer of Ultraman, Kyle Higgins, from the audience at the end.
