As a 20 year comic (CAPE comics mostly, yes, before you indie dunderheads start virtue signalling) reader who eventually settled into a steady diet of Morrison, Busiek, and Miller, am I allowed to voice the opinion that this movie is an interesting take on the mythos?

>Marvel Comics had a number of projects to announce to retailers at ComicsPRO in Memphis, Tennessee, this morning. I Am Groot, Guardians Of The Galaxy: Mother Entropy, The Spectacular Spider-Man – and the return to a down-on-his-luck Peter Parker, the deal with Archie Comics and the big one, Generations.
>But the word, expressed to me by a number of retailers, is that as we suggested, Marvel is going to be making changes to the line through 2017 to reflect retailer concerns regarding content – but will be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
>I am told that the title of the fall Marvel branding will be “Make Mine Marvel”. And that this will encompass the attitude Marvel wish to engender. You could probably add “Again” on the end.
>Marvel will be bringing back the classic characters to their roles – but then again, they always were. But they have been hearing from retailers who are hearing from their customers that they don’t like the fact that the Marvel Universe seems unrecognizable to them at the moment. It’s not just Steve Rogers having been replaced by Sam Wilson as Captain America, but that it’s every major character being replaced at the same time.
>And more importantly, having diverse characters take over the mantles of the originals means that they will always be seen as doppelgangers. These characters need to establish their own identities.
