Marvel Announces Line-Wide Cancellations Ahead Of 'Secret Wars'

In a statement posted today, Marvel's Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, David Gabriel clarified, somewhat, what fans can expect regarding the publisher's line of titles in the wake of the "universe changing ramifications" of Secret Wars:

There will be a number of titles reaching, what we’re calling, a '616 finale,' ending those stories and characters as you knew them – for now. [I]n a perfect world, we’d have stopped every book with its April issue, putting out a nice clean May Previews catalog. Everyone would have seen upfront all those titles that had their finale, and all those titles that were starting fresh. But things don’t always go so easily. Instead we gave our creators the option to end their stories the way they wanted to; we let them tell "Last Days" stories if they wanted to; we let them tell 'Secret Wars' stories if they wanted to. So in the end 'Secret Wars' truly has been a creative driven process.

And here are the titles that are coming to a close:

  • All-New Captain America
  • All-New Ghost Rider
  • All-New X-Men
  • Amazing Spider-Man
  • Amazing X-Men
  • Angela: Asgard’s Assassin
  • Avengers
  • Avengers World
  • Captain Marvel
  • Cyclops
  • Deadpool
  • Elektra
  • Fantastic Four
  • Guardians 3000
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Hulk
  • Inhuman
  • Iron Fist: The Living Weapon
  • Legendary Star-Lord
  • Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man
  • New Avengers
  • Nightcrawler
  • Nova
  • Rocket Raccoon
  • Secret Avengers
  • Spider-Man & The X-Men
  • Spider-Man 2099
  • Storm
  • Superior Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Uncanny X-Men
  • Wolverines
  • X-Men
I'm sure that most of these books will return in some form or another, with bright and shiny #1's, though I imagine this will also be Marvel's excuse to reassess some experiments that didn't quite work out (Superior Iron Man) or retool/re-brand books that could use a sales shot in the arm (Captain Marvel).
