Crossgen titles to be revived, but Marvel is in charge

At the SDCC, Marvel - yes, Marvel - announced that they'd be reviving the works of this failed company anew. They'd been bought by one of Disney's affiliates shortly afterwards, and that explains how this has happened.

I'd like to think this is good news, and Tom Brevoort indicated here that they wouldn't try to merge the properties with the MCU proper, but with people like Quesada in charge, this might not have the impact it could've had.

What's more, when Bill Jemas was in charge, he did a lot of damage by inciting against them, and while there were some legitimate criticisms to be found, the way Jemas went about this was simply inexcusable.

At least Disney is now their owner, and that might prompt them to maintain better behavior.

Update: here's what some of their former contributors have to say about the announcement.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
