After rebranding a handful of classic characters into the Marvel Legacy series, it seems that Marvel has given the axe to a majority of the ten series that debuted less than six months ago. After the company posted their March solicitations fans noticed that Captain Marvel, Generation X, America, The Unbelievable Gwenpool, Luke Cage, and Defenders were all missing from the roster. Worried that Marvel was putting the kibosh on their favorite books, fans were heartbroken when creators began tweeting their farewells soon after the controversy emerged.

According to a write-up in The Hollywood Reporter:

The apparent cancellation of the series follows the recent news that the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book series would end with its January issue, with the characters moving to the Infinity Countdown miniseries. (It should be noted that Captain Marvel is also appearing in that series, which might confirm the end of it at least temporarily; with a 2019 movie in the offing, it’s almost certain to return sooner rather than later.) Additionally, the series Secret Warriors and Jean Grey also end in January, the latter being replaced with February’s launch of new team book X-Men Red, with Inhumans series Royals ending this month, with a special one-off epilogue issue released in January.

And, unfortunately, Marvel Legacy titles aren’t the only ones to go. After sixteen issues, the most recent run of Hawkeye will also be saying its goodbyes after hinting that the character would be receiving a fond farewell in the upcoming March issue. Additionally, Champions, She-Hulk, and Iceman are rumored to be ending after their March issues.

The only silver lining here is that Captain Marvel will be here to stay. After seeing that the character would not be getting an issue in March, and would probably be absorbed into the Infinity Countdown series alongside Guardians of the Galaxy, writer Margaret Stohl took to Twitter to dispel any rumors that Captain Marvel would be erased from the current line-up.

So basically, a lot of changing and a lot of restructuring, but no one will be gone for good, and probably not for long either. Marvel’s pretty good with using their characters as best as they can, and as often as they can. With a lot of new movies coming in 2018 and 2019, it makes sense that they’d want to focus on their MCU characters for the sake of sales, but it’s not like Marvel is going to stop producing original content for the movie heroes just because they’re on the big screen now.

Be on the lookout for these farewell issues in February 2018!
