Heroes Con '09 - Key Points on the Marvel Panel

A panel about the Marvel Industry was held today with guest (from left to right) Matt Fraction, Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Mark Waid, and The Marvel Editor. This was a light panel with some information on the future of the Marvel Industry as it pertains to the books coming out. There where a lot of questions asked, as this is the format of the panel, but below are some of the key points that the guest presented.

- Mark Waid is going to be writing a run of Dr. Strange taking place after losing his title of Sorcerer Supreme and trying to live his life. He is disconnected from his mystic powers, so using them for him is harder.

- Mark Waid is also doing a run of Spider-Man, with the tag line "Will he survive the gauntlet?". This arc in the Amazing Spider-Man run is said to bring back villains in Spider-Mans world such as Electro and Mysterio. This is to start in issue 611

- Ed Brubaker talked about his Captain America Reborn saying that "It is not a Deus Ex Machina if you've planned it." From what I here this is going to be a good run. I fully believe is previous statement and have faith in the fact that this will be a very good run of Cap. He couldn't say much but what he did say was it does start July 1st of this year

- There will be a run of Dr. Voodoo which was not spoken of due to the creative team not being there. But what we know is this run will start this year.
