With Secret Wars currently taking shape it’s well known that the Marvel Universe that we know will be quite the different place after the event wraps up. So Marvel has released another teaser to show off their upcoming All-New, All-Different cast of characters! And though there are some familiar faces here, there’s some surprises as well! Though it does seem like Iron Man is the constant here since he appears in both teasers.
New York, NY—June 5th, 2015— Marvel Comics, the home of the greatest Super Heroes of all time, introduces a new direction for the Marvel Universe. This is All-New All-Different Marvel!

The All-New All-Different Marvel Universe has arrived!
Starting from the left we have Doctor Spectrum who first appeared in New Avengers #16 as part of a team that faced the Illuminati while they were attempting to stop the conversions. Her team from Earth-4290001off is an homage to the Justice League and were destroyed when Namor decided to end their world. It will be interesting to see what part she will play in the upcoming Marvel Universe.
Next up is the familiar face of Citizen V from Thunderbolts fame. However, it’s not known if the man under the mask is Baron Zemo or not.
The ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing is next but it looks like he’s sporting a brand new outfit along with membership to a new team, The Guardians of the Galaxy! Accompanied by Rocket Raccoon in matching attire it looks like he’ll be some added muscle to the team.
The hooded and creepy looking guy is the classic Inhuman favorite, Karnak. However we don’t know anything about his new look and what changes are taking place with the character.
Hovering above is Hyperion who we recently saw meet his end alongside Thor (Odinson) as they waged their final attack against the Beyonders right before Secret Wars began.
Below him is Inferno. A new Inhuman transformed by the Terrigen bomb set off a while back. This kid has been the center of the Inhuman series and it was stated a while back that we’ll be seeing plenty of him in the coming months.
Front and center is Iron Man who is rocking a newer and more streamlined version of the armor.
The Queen of the Inhumans, Medusa is well known and has been receiving quite the push lately in the Inhuman series and most likely to get fans ready for the upcoming movie.
You know there has to be a “Wolverine” in the Marvel Universe and it seems as if X-23 has taken her “father’s” place.
Star Lord is looking calm and aloof as usual.
Now, Doctor Strange isn’t new to many however we’ve never seen him carrying weapons besides the Eye of Agamoto! So it seems as if he’s got a little something more ‘hands on’ with this Axe but where did it come from?
What’s better than one Wolverine? How about another version of him that is from one of the best stories to feature the character in Old Man Logan! He’s currently in the Secret Wars tie in of the same name so with him shown here it looks like he’ll be sticking around for a while.
All I can really say is that this line up shows some promise and partially puts to rest the rumors that Marvel is going to completely do away with characters from the Fantastic Four and X-Men. Secret Wars itself is starting off to be a game changer and is shaking things up so when the dust settles we’ll see what Marvel does with what’s left!
So what do you think of the state of Marvel post Secret Wars? Let us know!
