    I imagine that sort of reach is not just going to away. I just imagine that we will probably see original characters step up again. I hope that we see most of the new characters still play a role.

I think Jane Foster will die of cancer. Because for some reason no force in the multiverse can beat cancer. The Odinson will take back Mjolnir and his comic but I probably won't be interested. He hasn't been my Thor since JMS.

I think Riri may spin off into her own comic titled "Ironheart" which will sell 70,000+ copies of its first issue and then immediately drop to 35,000 copies for its second issue if it's lucky. Nevertheless, since Bendis won't be writing it, I may start following the comic. I guess Tony Stark will return and take over his own comic again. But I'm not sure I care. We'll see.

As for Laura/Wolverine - I'm hoping "The Wolverines" will be the new title of the book and will feature classic Logan, Laura, and Gabby - because, let's face it, classic Logan has always been at his best when acting as a gruff father figure to young women/girls.

I think Old Man Logan will pull a Flash and sacrifice himself to save reality.

I'm hoping Weapon H will get his own book. A grim grey Hulk with claws is what the world needs right now. I'm a thousand times more interested in this than I will ever be in Amadeus Cho. Bruce Banner may get his own book back but I'm not sure I care. We'll see.

    I feel this was always a complicated issue in some respects. Just because the original character did not go away. So, eventually there is going to be a fair number of strange arguments about using a given name.

I'm very curious how Laura and classic Logan will handle the name thing. As noted, I'm hoping they'll call themselves "The Wolverines" and form a small team with Gabby along for the ride.
