    Nova!!! Thanos!!

    I'm interested. Marvel's "space" characters have been very underused in the last 10+ years. Here's hoping it'll be some fun reading.

    Not sure what to think of this. I really enjoyed Infinity Gauntlet back in the day, but cant honestly say I have enjoyed stories with any of those other characters. I wonder how Mark Millar's big 2006 event will tie into this?

    It may not at all.

    And this looks to be the first real "Big Event" without Spider-Man or Wolverine, so that's a huge bonus right there.

    With only a few exceptions, I don't really have any interest in Marvel's cosmic characters. I'll probably be passing on this one. Like Civil War, though, I retain the right to change my mind as more details come out.

    I do like the concept of seeing Quasar get back in the spotlight again, although it looks like he won't be one of the main stars.

    Never was into the Space heroes anyway. Though I like Nova but I'm confused how he is considered a Space Hero.

    Other than his bit in New Warriors, Nova's always been a "Cosmic Hero". His entire first two solo series (1 from the 70's, and the other I believe from the 80's) were all him off in Space.

    Might look into this.

    You serious?
    You just know they'll make some cameo somehow.

    I'm thinking the girl there could possibly be the "daughter" of Thanos and Death.

    Don't see anywhere how this is a big event. Its more like a miniseries with tie-ins lightyears from the rest of the normal happenings wich is set to modernise the space heroes of Marvel.

    Plus that it has Thanos and Thanos just rocks.

    I've got that feeling as well....

    I wouldn't mind buying those comics as long as Wolverine and Spidey aren't in them.
