Marvel NOW is a 2013 relaunch of the various Marvel titles following the ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' CrisisCrossover as well as the events of ''Avengers Assemble'' volume 2.

As of 2014 January, Marvel has launched "All-New Marvel Now" (ANMN) in similar fashion following ''Comicbook/{{Infinity}}'' Marvel's latest CrisisCrossover. Like the previous relaunch this one features both new ongoing series being released alongside previous ones that were cancelled and restarted with new volumes with a few series have kept their usual name, but added a "#1" on certain issues to signify new jump on points for new readers.

!!The Marvel NOW initiative contains examples of the following tropes:

* TheAdjectivalSuperhero: A bunch of new adjectives are being thrown around, including ''All-New'' X-Men, ''Fearless'' Defenders, ''Indestructible'' Hulk, ''Savage'' Wolverine, ''Superior'' Spider-Man, ''Unbeatable'' Squirrel Girl and ''Uncanny'' Avengers.
** ''All-New'' X-Men is actually a CallBack to ''X-Men'' #94 (the first issue with the revamped 1970s team) which had ''All-New, All-Different X-Men'' on the cover.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Definitely gives off that feel. Several characters like Iron Man and the new Spider-Man now sport black versions of their previously-colorful outfits. Yet despite that, most, though not all, the titles are largely no darker than prior to the Relaunch, tone-wise and story-wise.
** In the case of the new, "Superior" Spider-Man, WordOfGod even explicitly mentioned the character as a darker and edgier take on the nominally friendly-neighbourhood webslinger.
* ExpansionPackPast: The new ''Captain America'' mixes science fiction action with flashbacks that delve into Steve Rogers' past before becoming the Super-Soldier.
* FollowTheLeader: Many believe/believed Marvel was doing this because, roughly just over a year prior, DC decided to [[NewFiftyTwo reboot its entire line of comics]], complete with a new StatusQuo for some characters, with others being completely recreated. Largely, Marvel Now is different, being that all the previous continuity is still intact. Ironically, a lot of fans wish they ''did'' follow DC's example in some cases.
* GenreSavvy: In ''Indestructible Hulk'', Bruce Banner having realized that the Hulk isn't going away any time soon (though this isn't a recent thing for him), and so decides to instead focus his efforts on working ''around'' his condition rather than trying to cure it. He's also decided that his life will be a lot easier and more productive -- both as Hulk and Banner -- if he approaches the authorities to work with them rather than spending all his time on the run.
* InNameOnly: The original Thunderbolts were a team of reformed supervillains. The Marvel NOW version of the team is a book about a group of antiheroes lead by the RedHulk, with absolutely none of the original cast returning. Though when the team was created originally introduced, many fans thought it was a team working under Thunderbolt Ross(Since their first appearance was in Incredible Hulk). So we've come full circle.
* LegacyCharacter: Otto Octavius as the Superior Spider-Man.
** AffirmativeActionLegacy:
*** Robbie Reyes (Hispanic) as the new Ghost Rider.
*** Sam Alexander (half-Mexican) as the new Nova
*** Kamala Khan (Pakistani-American) as the new Ms. Marvel.
*** Izzy Kane as the new Smasher.
*** Sam Wilson (African-American) as the new Captain America.
* NinetiesAntiHero: [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-nQ-Z5ZmRlHI/UH7j5-g7NmI/AAAAAAAACJg/WMwClzgGKqU/s1600/SUPSM2013001_CamunVAR.jpg Take a look at the promo art for the new Spider-Man]].
* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Although the obvious point of comparison is [[DCComics DC's]] New52, MarvelNow is not a reboot, more a series of relaunches. Many of them feature new status quos for the characters that build on the fallout from ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' -- the X-Men Franchise in particular has been hit pretty deeply by this.
* {{Retcanon}}: The influence of the MarvelCinematicUniverse can be seen throughout the Avengers titles. Notably:
** The Hulk's new status quo reads just as sensibly as a follow-up to his appearance in ''Film/TheAvengers''.
** As does CaptainAmerica's new storyline, which has him fighting Arnim Zola. In addition, Cap's outfit seems to be directly inspired by his costumes in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''.
** The starting line-up of the Avengers is the same six characters who were seen in ''Film/TheAvengers''.
*** The same goes for the reformed Guardians of the Galaxy who briefly had Bug back on their team when he was being considered for the movie. (he was promptly removed when Bug was dropped from the movie).
** The Secret Avengers roster features all the major SHIELD characters in ''Avengers'', plus the Comicbook/WarMachine as the new Iron Patriot (an idea introduced in ''Film/IronMan3'') and [[BuckyBarnes Winter Soldier]] (who appears in 2014's ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'').
** Superior Spider-Man's second costume is an unused design Alex Ross created for the first ''Film/SpiderMan'' movie.
* SelfDeprecation: Dan Slott knows full well he's a BaseBreaker, and that his current run is highly controversial. Many interviews tend to have him acknowledge this, and he even joked that, after ''Amazing Spider-Man #700'', he'll have to hide under a rock.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Kieron Gillen has stated that he added Miss America Chavez to his new YoungAvengers line-up after being unable to use Patriot.
* WolverinePublicity: Pretty much all of the Avengers present in [[Film/TheAvengers the movie]]. Iron Man is now in his own title, ''Avengers'', ''New Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', a digital mini series and ''Guardians of the Galaxy''. Captain America has his own book, ''Avengers'', ''New Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', and ''Uncanny Avengers''. {{Hawkeye}} and Comicbook/BlackWidow are in ''Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', and ''Secret Avengers'', with Hawkeye also having his own solo book and Black Widow getting one herself later on. The Hulk has his own title, ''Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', and ''Secret Avengers''.
** Ironically {{Wolverine}} is the least exposed in comparison.
** The Avengers name is being slapped on quite a few books (seven, so far), even on books that don't really have anything to do with them. ''Secret Avengers'' is more ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} based and ''ComicBook/AvengersArena'' centers around a Literature/TheHungerGames type scenario.
** In the wake of their [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy surprise hit movie]], the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' have been benefiting from this big time. In addition to the main title, Marvel has launched, the ''Guardians 3000'' based off the original far future team, plus solo books for Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, and Gamora, in addition to giving the latter two big roles in the ''Original Sin'' CrisisCrossover and a upcoming another ongoing ''Guardians Team Up'' announced for 2015.
* WritingForTheTrade: Although individual issues tend to be good reads, Marvel Now comics seem written not for the trade, but the ''omnibus'' - long, slow-burning plots seem to be the order of the day. Most trades end on cliffhangers, or act as groundwork and foreshadowing for much bigger stories.
** Biggest offenders of this being Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman.

!!The Marvel NOW initiative contains examples of the following tropes:

* TheAdjectivalSuperhero: A bunch of new adjectives are being thrown around, including ''All-New'' X-Men, ''Fearless'' Defenders, ''Indestructible'' Hulk, ''Savage'' Wolverine, ''Superior'' Spider-Man, ''Unbeatable'' Squirrel Girl and ''Uncanny'' Avengers.
** ''All-New'' X-Men is actually a CallBack to ''X-Men'' #94 (the first issue with the revamped 1970s team) which had ''All-New, All-Different X-Men'' on the cover.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Definitely gives off that feel. Several characters like Iron Man and the new Spider-Man now sport black versions of their previously-colorful outfits. Yet despite that, most, though not all, the titles are largely no darker than prior to the Relaunch, tone-wise and story-wise.
** In the case of the new, "Superior" Spider-Man, WordOfGod even explicitly mentioned the character as a darker and edgier take on the nominally friendly-neighbourhood webslinger.
* ExpansionPackPast: The new ''Captain America'' mixes science fiction action with flashbacks that delve into Steve Rogers' past before becoming the Super-Soldier.
* FollowTheLeader: Many believe/believed Marvel was doing this because, roughly just over a year prior, DC decided to [[NewFiftyTwo reboot its entire line of comics]], complete with a new StatusQuo for some characters, with others being completely recreated. Largely, Marvel Now is different, being that all the previous continuity is still intact. Ironically, a lot of fans wish they ''did'' follow DC's example in some cases.
* GenreSavvy: In ''Indestructible Hulk'', Bruce Banner having realized that the Hulk isn't going away any time soon (though this isn't a recent thing for him), and so decides to instead focus his efforts on working ''around'' his condition rather than trying to cure it. He's also decided that his life will be a lot easier and more productive -- both as Hulk and Banner -- if he approaches the authorities to work with them rather than spending all his time on the run.
* InNameOnly: The original Thunderbolts were a team of reformed supervillains. The Marvel NOW version of the team is a book about a group of antiheroes lead by the RedHulk, with absolutely none of the original cast returning. Though when the team was created originally introduced, many fans thought it was a team working under Thunderbolt Ross(Since their first appearance was in Incredible Hulk). So we've come full circle.
* LegacyCharacter: Otto Octavius as the Superior Spider-Man.
** AffirmativeActionLegacy:
*** Robbie Reyes (Hispanic) as the new Ghost Rider.
*** Sam Alexander (half-Mexican) as the new Nova
*** Kamala Khan (Pakistani-American) as the new Ms. Marvel.
*** Izzy Kane as the new Smasher.
*** Sam Wilson (African-American) as the new Captain America.
* NinetiesAntiHero: [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-nQ-Z5ZmRlHI/UH7j5-g7NmI/AAAAAAAACJg/WMwClzgGKqU/s1600/SUPSM2013001_CamunVAR.jpg Take a look at the promo art for the new Spider-Man]].
* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: Although the obvious point of comparison is [[DCComics DC's]] New52, MarvelNow is not a reboot, more a series of relaunches. Many of them feature new status quos for the characters that build on the fallout from ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' -- the X-Men Franchise in particular has been hit pretty deeply by this.
* {{Retcanon}}: The influence of the MarvelCinematicUniverse can be seen throughout the Avengers titles. Notably:
** The Hulk's new status quo reads just as sensibly as a follow-up to his appearance in ''Film/TheAvengers''.
** As does CaptainAmerica's new storyline, which has him fighting Arnim Zola. In addition, Cap's outfit seems to be directly inspired by his costumes in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''.
** The starting line-up of the Avengers is the same six characters who were seen in ''Film/TheAvengers''.
*** The same goes for the reformed Guardians of the Galaxy who briefly had Bug back on their team when he was being considered for the movie. (he was promptly removed when Bug was dropped from the movie).
** The Secret Avengers roster features all the major SHIELD characters in ''Avengers'', plus the Comicbook/WarMachine as the new Iron Patriot (an idea introduced in ''Film/IronMan3'') and [[BuckyBarnes Winter Soldier]] (who appears in 2014's ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'').
** Superior Spider-Man's second costume is an unused design Alex Ross created for the first ''Film/SpiderMan'' movie.
* SelfDeprecation: Dan Slott knows full well he's a BaseBreaker, and that his current run is highly controversial. Many interviews tend to have him acknowledge this, and he even joked that, after ''Amazing Spider-Man #700'', he'll have to hide under a rock.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Kieron Gillen has stated that he added Miss America Chavez to his new YoungAvengers line-up after being unable to use Patriot.
* WolverinePublicity: Pretty much all of the Avengers present in [[Film/TheAvengers the movie]]. Iron Man is now in his own title, ''Avengers'', ''New Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', a digital mini series and ''Guardians of the Galaxy''. Captain America has his own book, ''Avengers'', ''New Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', and ''Uncanny Avengers''. {{Hawkeye}} and Comicbook/BlackWidow are in ''Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', and ''Secret Avengers'', with Hawkeye also having his own solo book and Black Widow getting one herself later on. The Hulk has his own title, ''Avengers'', ''Avengers Assemble'', and ''Secret Avengers''.
** Ironically {{Wolverine}} is the least exposed in comparison.
** The Avengers name is being slapped on quite a few books (seven, so far), even on books that don't really have anything to do with them. ''Secret Avengers'' is more ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} based and ''ComicBook/AvengersArena'' centers around a Literature/TheHungerGames type scenario.
** In the wake of their [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy surprise hit movie]], the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' have been benefiting from this big time. In addition to the main title, Marvel has launched, the ''Guardians 3000'' based off the original far future team, plus solo books for Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, and Gamora, in addition to giving the latter two big roles in the ''Original Sin'' CrisisCrossover and a upcoming another ongoing ''Guardians Team Up'' announced for 2015.
* WritingForTheTrade: Although individual issues tend to be good reads, Marvel Now comics seem written not for the trade, but the ''omnibus'' - long, slow-burning plots seem to be the order of the day. Most trades end on cliffhangers, or act as groundwork and foreshadowing for much bigger stories.
** Biggest offenders of this being Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman.
