For those unaware, Marvel Legacy is essentially an upcoming relaunch of numerous comic book franchises by Marvel Comics. The goal of the Legacy initiative is to bring a greater focus to Marvel’s core superheroes, unlike recent relaunches such as Marvel NOW! which gave prominence to newer and younger heroes.

“The Marvel Legacy initiative is a celebration of everything that makes Marvel the best in fiction and it’s a signifier of a new era for Marvel Comics,” says Quesada. “It’s a loving look at the heart of Marvel as we embrace our roots and move enthusiastically forward with all the Marvel characters you know and love starring in the biggest, boldest, best Marvel stories. All of which kicks off with the giant Marvel Legacy special.”

The relaunch will begin in late 2017 right after the conclusion of Secret Empires storyline. It will reportedly end all the ongoing series and the titles will be re-branded under Marvel Legacy. The relaunch will kick off with 50 page one shot titled Marvel Legacy #1 with the writer Jason Aaron and artist Esad Ribić collaborating on the opening issue and laying the narrative groundwork for the line. The issue will introduce the first super hero team of Avengers that were active in the year 1,000,000 BC. The story will span the history of the Marvel Universe and explore the connection between the prehistoric Avengers and their present-day counterparts. The issue will see the return of a fan-favourite character into active service.
