Marvel’s Heroic Age

Courtesy of Garret, from USA Today:

“After seven years of grim and grimmer story lines, including a superhero “civil war” that pitted Iron Man against Spider-Man and the death of Captain America, Marvel Comics will usher in a more optimistic “Heroic Age” approach in May.”

This is Marvel’s answer to what DC Comics is already planning as the follow-up to their Darkest Night storyline, Brightest Day.

UPDATE: “Before either Marvel’s The Heroic Age and DC’s Brightest Day have even launched, both companies are publicly announcing that their future isn’t that bright after all. Whatever happened to the new age of optimism?” Well, there’s gotta be some dramatic tension.
