But that’s not all. To lure more investment collectors to buy shiny new #1 issues, Marvel is launching a third Marvel NOW! later this year. There will be new #1 issues for Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man and heavy focus on characters in Phase 3 of Marvel movies such as Doctor Strange, Ant Man, Scarlet Witch, and the Inhumans. In total there will be ten new comics replacing existing series, some of which haven’t even run for an entire year. If you ever wanted to say Disney has ruined Marvel, the greed for the investment collector’s money is a sign.
The new Captain America, Thor, and Superior Iron Man books will likely be a big part of Marvel’s SDCC panels next week.
