Previous Post

They're bringing back The Hulk
The Original Wolverine
Cap was supposedly going off to a Kamandi future to make way for someone else but now he's back in the latest Avengers in May
Thor's coming back with Mjolner (or something like it)
Jean Grey (the regular one, not the teen or a clone or a time displaced daughter) is back.
Why not toss in the FF in, too?

It really looks like Marvel couldn't wait for Legacy to get it's feet underneath it before they went for the NEXT BIG THING, again. This whole FRESH START, really seemed to come out of left field, whether it was a desperate move or a planned one we'll always hear it was planned. But I really wouldn't put it past them to toss the FF back togehter sooner than expected. The only negative is the image they have only depicts Ben, not even Johnny. But it could be only a partial image.

I think the fresh start has been at least in the planning stages for a year. Doesn't Marvel's top guys do a brainstorming retreat to plan the company's direction once a year? I'm guessing the fan backlash and sales of Axel and Bendis' reign was a determining factor. I'm actually excited by this fresh start campaign. Recently, I've been checking out Avengers No Surrender and its been very good. The new Avenger announced lineup I will likely give a chance, too. I've even enjoyed Wolverine's bad-@$$ return that's been sprinkled throughout a couple issue's I've seen. Including, Infinity Countdown which has been great so far only a couple books in with Adam Warlock and Prime.
I noticed Ben's the only one in the poster solicitation. They should have at least found a way to include the Human Torch. Does it have bearing on the FF return? Two different ways of looking at that: trying to keep the return a secret or no return planned at all. Who knows with Marvel these days?
I would like to see the Fresh Start get back to basics and be a return to what I've been missing in Marvel comics, but, I'm not the Marvel Zombie I once was as I've discovered many great titles out there on the indie scene and there's only so much money and so much time to give to comics. Will be checking out a few titles, tho and if they meet my expectations will continue to buy.
