Update

Marvel just released the following teaser. No additional information was provided. Looks like a lot of characters will be involved, as the previous teasers hinted.

No Caption Provided

Original report:

Marvel is know to occasionally release cryptic teasers. We've seen promos for the upcoming "Secret Empire," and it's was a safe bet it was related to Captain America because of his HYDRA connection and the shield in the text.

Marvel just gave us an exclusive teaser, and we're not quite sure what it means.

No Caption Provided

How are the X-Men going to be involved in this? Marvel hasn't given us any other information.

Yesterday they released the following teaser:

No Caption Provided

Other teasers are popping up online. Previewsworld has one with a Spider-Man connection that says, "Secret Empire Will Amaze You."

Here's all the teasers Marvel's released.

Yep, time to bring that bingo card again.

I except...at least half of it to be true.

It seems logical to me that the tie-in from the teasers will revolve around the following characters:

  • Red Skull (Since he has Prof. X's brain)
  • Captain America (Since he is now connected to Hydra via Kobik's tampering)
  • Spider-Man (Since he is now a global player, like Mr. Stark)

Secret Empire???? this better be good I hope they reveal Hydra Cap...

What I don't get is people complain about garbage events, but they keep buying. Either pirate the sht out of it (normally I would obviously not recommend this, but dumb events deserve this) or just don't read it.

They reveal that the new President is apart of the Secret Empire and HYDRA just like the 70s president.

They will introduce the new Illuminati including: Captain HYDRA, Magneto, Iron Doom and a Spider character (maybe a Web Warrior)

Aka a whole lotta nuffin' for nuffin'.

To be more serious, it's probably related to Steve's reveal as Hydra's agent and the beginning of his dehydration arc -at least I'd assume they're not planning on keeping him as hydra goon forever.

@eto: That's the angle, marketing teams know outrage gets more spotlight. No such thing as bad publicity.

In other words they make money off us being upset because they know it'll work, and that's (partly) why I've just stopped caring about Marvel as of late. I get that comics aren't a strong business and they need to make money, but it shouldn't be done by showing contempt for your fans.

I wonder, is Red Skull being affected by the Inhuman cloud (since he have Prof.X's brain).

Anyway, Marvel stop these events. It very hard to get into comics with all of these Big Events that change everything, just tell good stories.

Spider-Man hasn´t been the focus of a main event in years, only recently in CWII and that wasn´t even the real Spider-Man.

@judasnixon: I like DC's event comics, they're few & far between, and usually have an overall purpose, or have been foreshadowed, unless it's a batman universe event.

According to Bleedingcool marvel isn't selling, but they are gimicking the sales figures for Diamond to make it look like they are selling.

Given what I feel is marvel's love of fascism I think we'll be seeing another Hero/Hero battle, but with players changing sides. Carol Danvers might not be the head fascists this time, it might be HYDRA/Cap or Maria Hill. Either way wait a year or so and it'll be in the discount bins for a dollar or less.

Came here to say almost the exact same thing. That checklist is just more insult to injury as if they're too full of themselves to admit they produce trash and felt the need to throw sarcasm at their crumbling fanbase.

I swear to god if this is The X-Men, Spider-Man, Avengers, Defenders, Guardians... all of them being revealed to be secret Hydra. Great compelling twist where marvel fans will need to buy books not because they want to or enjoy them, but to see if there is any hope for the characters they love. They have finally decided to do a title wide superior spider-man. I'd quit.

@thor_parker82: what about Spider-verse and Clone Conspiracy?

I think he means event comics that encompass the entire Marvel universe. These two events only effected Spider-Man and his related characters.

The comic vine community is just so receptive. Really open and never judgmental when a new comic series is teased or announced.

But if I dont read it how will I know if it's crap, like the last 17 events Marvel produced?

Oh, wait...

Also, that is some horrible art! The perspective, the poses, the faces, the body proportions, good grief! Cassaday just keeps getting worse. I imagine that in a couple of years his art will be nothing but ink blots. Dude, I understand that going from drawing Warren Ellis stories to doing this pap is a big step down, but show some pride in your work!

But Marvel already has a new event which is Monsters Unleashed. I love comic book events but seriously, give readers more time to adjust to the new changes.
