'''Earth-982'''

An AlternateTimeline MarvelUniverse where everyone (well, almost everyone) has had SpinOffspring and following the [[RetiredBadass retirements]], [[KilledOffForReal deaths]], [[DisappearedDad disappearances]] and [[NoodleIncident disbandings]] of their parents/mentors/favorite super-teams, the kids have taken up the torch.

It's also LighterAndSofter, being one of Marvel's 'Verses aimed at kids. With the exception of ComicBook/{{Spider-Girl}}, all of these series have been canceled, though the characters keep [[DropInCharacter showing up in Spider-Girl]] and new miniseries have been coming out for the last few years.

----
!!Getting its start as a WhatIf, the 'verse has expanded to include the following series and miniseries:

* ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Girl}}'', the little book that started it all. Started with an issue #0 (though this was basically a reprint of the original ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' v2 #105). Lasted for 100 regular issues, from October, 1998 to September, 2006.
** ''Amazing Spider-Girl'' (volume two). Started with an issue #0. Lasted for 30 regular issues, from December, 2006 to May, 2009.
** ''Spectacular Spider-Girl'' (digital comic, volume three). Launched in April, 2009. 12 issues became available.
** ''Spectacular Spider-Girl'' vol. 2. A regular mini-series. 4 issues, from July to October, 2010.
** ''Spider-Girl: The End'' (October, 2010). One-shot finale for the series and character. Though it leaves the door way open for more stories down the line.
* ''Avengers Next'' (two volumes). The original volume "A-Next" lasted for 12 issues, from October, 1998 to September, 1999. The second volume had the full name. It was a 5-issue mini-series (January-March, 2007).

While also having demonic powers derived from [[Comicbook/GhostRider Zarathos]]. Starred in a 3-issue mini-series (November, 2000-January, 2001).
* ''Last Hero Standing''. A CrisisCrossover for this line. A number of well-known superheroes, both retired and active ones, disappear without a trace. The superhero community is concerned but there is no singular suspect. As everyone reacts in their own way, some of the missing heroes return. But acting as villains and attacking fellow heroes. Who is pulling everyone's strings remains a mystery for a while, until the shocking revelation: [[spoiler:ComicBook/{{Loki}} seeking to end the Avengers and the "Age of Heroes", rectifying his role in accidentally starting it. ]] Published as a 5-issue mini-series (August, 2005).
* ''Last Planet Standing''. A second CrisisCrossover. {{Galactus}} has decided to evolve himself to a new level and now requires more energy than usual. He starts actively campaigning against the Shi'ar, the Asgardians, and other targets. With Earth once again on his list. Heroes and villains have to team-up to prevent the extinction of sentient life-forms. But ComicBook/SilverSurfer offers his own solution to the problem. Published as a 5-issue mini-series (July-September 2006).
* ''American Dream''. Featuring Shannon Carter, niece to Sharon Carter and LegacyCharacter to CaptainAmerica. Starred in a 5-issue mini-series (July-September, 2008).

!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: World Tropes ]]

* AdultsAreUseless: Subverted, with most of the MarvelUniverse acting as mentors to the younger generation. Though there some who look down on the kids, underestimate them, etc.
* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fanpeople]]
** Doc Magus operates out of a comic book store.
* TheAtoner: LOTS of 'em.
* BadassFamily: The Fantastic Five. Also, the Parkers. All of them. Even [[MamaBear Mary Jane]] and [[BadassAdorable the baby]].
* BadFuture: In ''Spider-Girl: The End''. You might think government should know better than to [[spoiler: make Carnage Army]] but no...
* BroadStrokes: Thanks to being set in AlternateContinuity, [=MC2=] can choose which new elements or characters from regular Marvel Universe will incorporate into itself (like Araņa) and discard everything else (SecretInvasion).
* ComicBookTime: The comics have been going on for a decade. May's aged maybe two years. It's also supposed to be an Alternate PRESENT, actually. WordOfGod is that originally the writers wanted to play with this being a genuine possible ''future'' of Earth-616, but the target audience meant that pop-culture references would need to be kept contemporary. The fact that the main Marvel Universe also operates on ComicBookTime means that having the evens of the main universe occur a few decades earlier in the alternate one is quite easy.
* DaddysGirl: May to Peter, Cassie to Scott Lang, Rina to Logan.
* DistaffCounterpart
* FutureBadass: Many of teen and kid heroes of the current MarvelUniverse. Notably [[TheLeader Jubilee]], [[TeenIdol Franklin Richards]] and [[AntiHero Araņa]].
* GenerationXerox: Played straight in that almost all of the [=MC2=] heroes are following in their parent's or mentor's footsteps (and costume choices). Averted in that most of them have different personalities and motivations.
* HappilyMarried
* InTheBlood: Both heroic and villainous examples. Also frequently subverted.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: Or father/daughter, daughter/mother, mother/son, mentor/mentee...
* KilledOffForReal: Too many to list, but here's a few. [[spoiler: ComicBook/AntMan, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, [[ComicBook/DoctorOctopus Doc Ock]], ComicBook/NormanOsborn, Robbie Robertson, ComicBook/ThePunisher, ComicBook/TheWasp, TheKingpin, Hobgoblin]].
** Among the current generation: [[spoiler: Crimson Curse]].
* ParentalAbandonment
* OfficialCouple: Many current MarvelUniverse ships. Then there's [[spoiler: {{Wolverine}} and ComicBook/{{Elektra}}]].
* OlderAndWiser
* SecretLegacy
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Spider-Girl: The End.
* TropeOverdosed

* RevengeBeforeReason: Red Queen ''hates'' the still-living Avengers and A-Next, both because she's batshit insane (hello, unfortunate InTheBlood implications), and because she feels the adult Avengers didn't give a damn about her mother and the new Avengers (especially Stinger) are disrespecting her parents' memory just by existing.
