    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.

Regardless of the issue of diversity, we currently have Logan, Old Man Logan, Lauran, Daken, Jimmy Hudson, and now Gabby all running around the same time and place with claws on their hands.

Thats just stupid, and cheapens the idea of these characters being unique or interesting.

The same applies to a lesser degree to most of Marvels most popular characters. Having multiple versions of them active at the same time only makes them less interesting.
