During the panel, Jonathan Hickman revealed that the project, still without an official title, will be a sort of “Marvel Universe Sandman“, And revealed that he worked on this series for three yearsaround the same time he started producing the X-Men material for House of X And Powers of X.
Below you can read the words of Jonathan Hickman on the upcoming comic series for Marvel Comics, reported by comicbook.com:
It’s probably too early to talk about my next project, especially it’s early to do it in a satisfactory way. It definitely won’t be tied to the X-Men. In fact, unless I decide to go back to the office to do something later, I will intentionally avoid doing ‘mutant things’.
The promotional image published by Marvel to present the new series carries the phrase “what happens when the established powers meet the natural order of things?“. At the moment it is not known what these words refer to, but it seems that our doubts will be answered with the debut of the first issue of the comics. Below we show you the tweet with the image above:
