Marvel is ushering in significant change with it’s upcoming Marvel Legacy campaign, which will kick off in a special 50-page issue later this year. The universe is going to look a bit different afterward, and now fans have the full list of titles that will make up Marvel’s latest era.
While creative teams haven’t been revealed yet for the new set of books, fans can look forward to many of their favorite titles making the jump, along with some new books to round things out.
Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada described the intent of Marvel Legacy, focusing on embracing the iconic aspects of these characters.
“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 first batch of titles is located below.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS
BEN REILLY: SCARLET SPIDER
No big surprises here, though it does make one happy to see All-New Wolverine and America still on the list. Those books have been fantastic, and hopefully, the creative teams will follow them into this new Marvel status quo.
Black Panther will also be returning, though the spinoff book World of Wakanda was previously canceled in preparation for Legacy. Champions is also be making a return, which should please fans of the promising upstart team of ex-Avengers.

Marvel Legacy Titles D-M
Doctor Strange will have a new creative team of Dennis Hopeless and Niko Henrichon, and Daredevil and Defenders will likely go untouched. Two new books will join those though, those being the Despicable Deadpool and a Falcon solo series. It seems he will return to his pre-Captain America origins after Secret Empire, though who knows, it could not be Sam Wilson at all.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
GWENPOOL, THE UNBELIEVABLE
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN
Nothing too surprising here other than Gwenpool The Unbelievable. It is also unknown whether the Incredible Hulk will be a returning Bruce Banner or continue to be Amadeus Cho.
MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR
Marvel Two in One is back, and surprisingly the Monsters Unleashed book is also staying around. Also good to see that Moon Knight will be continuing as well.

Marvel Legacy Titles O-X
OLD MAN LOGAN
PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN
SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE
Good to see the underrated She-Hulk ongoing is sticking around, albeit under her old title, and Spirits of Vengeance could be something to look out for. Other than that, most of the books here were never going anywhere.
THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL
THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL
Again, Thanos seemed like it could be cut going into this new era, so glad to see that is not the case. It is surprising to see U.S. Avengers and Squirrel Girl still here too, though that has nothing to do with their quality.
