Go To

Marvel Legacy is the short-lived 2017 relaunch of Marvel Comics, set in the wake of the massive Secret Empire crossover event earlier that summer. As was the case with its predecessors, Marvel Legacy was not a continuity reboot; instead, new books were published, while existing titles/characters were refreshed with new creative teams and status quos.

Following the appointment of C.B. Cebulski to the position of editor-in-chief, Marvel announced the A Fresh Start relaunch in February 2018.

Compare to 2016's DC Rebirth, a similar relaunch of Marvel's distinguished competition in roughly the same timeframe.

Marvel Legacy provides examples of:

  • The Adjectival Superhero: Deadpool gains the title of Despicable Deadpool.
  • The Atoner:
    • Steve Rogers' initial storyline is this, seeking to win the hearts of the American people after the damage done by "Stevil"
    • The Punisher using the War Machine armor is this due to his time as part of HYDRA, feeling duped by following "Stevil"'s promises.
  • Back from the Dead:
    • Gert Yorkes, dead since issue 18 of the Runaways's second volume, returns with the new volume of the title. She's plucked into the present from the time of her death by Chase Stein, and Nico Ninoru uses magic to fix her fatal wounds. Victor Mancha is also revealed to be alive, albeit as a disembodied head.
    • The original Jean Grey is resurrected by the Phoenix Force, but rejects becoming its host.
    • The original Wolverine seemed to be revived at the end of the one-shot. While Earth-616 Wolverine did indeed come back, as detailed in The Return Of Wolverine, it's later revealed in Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1 that the Wolverine in the one-shot is actually Old Man Phoenix from Jason Aaron's Thor run.
    • Bruce Banner/Hulk returns in Avengers: No Surrender.
    • Black Widow at the end of Tales of Suspense #102.
    • Invincible Iron Man #600 begins with Tony Stark using the same procedure that saved his life in the aftermath of Civil War II to resurrect James Rhodes.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Like Agent Venom in the tail end of Marvel NOW! (2016), Andi Benton loses the Mania symbiote to Lee Price, resulting in him becoming the villain of Venom Inc, Maniac. Despite this, she still has the Hell-Mark's demonic powers.
  • The Bus Came Back:
    • The rebranding will see someone from Marvel's past making a return to the forefront, with the number one contender being the long-missing Richards Family, who has been thought dead since the events of Secret Wars (2015). While the Marvel Two-In-One story deals with the Richards family, it seems that the return is actually Logan / the original Wolverine.
    • Runaways. Apart from Nico Minoru, who was in A-Force, the rest of the team has been in Comic-Book Limbo for years. Now they're getting a TV series, so naturally Marvel decided to relaunch their comic as well.
    • The reunion of the original Champions in Iceman's comic. While all the heroes, save for Johnny Blaze, had been active, this team was more or less seen as a joke and ignored, especially with the teenage team formed by Kamala Khan doing well.
    • Dr. Strange #382 brings back The Sentry.
    • Flash Thompson returns to the spotlight after having lost the Venom symbiote, and becomes the new Anti-Venom.
  • Cliffhanger: The one-shot comics all have their ends opened up just in case people want their stories to continue.
  • Comics Merger:
    • Plot threads from the finished Infamous Iron Man bleed into Invincible Iron Man, so the series during Marvel Legacy essentially becomes a merger with its sister title. Infamous Iron Man penciler Alex Maleev even moves to Invincible Iron Man to draw the segments featuring Victor von Doom.
    • Captain America: Sam Wilson and Captain America: Steve Rogers merge to form Captain America for one last issue before picking up as that singular title under a new creative team.
    • Uncanny Avengers and U.S.Avengers merged into the main Avengers book, which went weekly for 16 issues, starting in January 2018.
  • Covers Always Lie: A number of covers for the one-shot features Thor in either his classic costume or JMS-era outfit and wielding Mjölnir. Thor wouldn't reclaim his name until the end of the Jane Foster as Thor era; thanks to how Jane's tenure ended, he wouldn't be able to use Mjölnir until he reforges it in the climax of War of the Realms; and as of Thor, while he's back to having his body intact and long hair, Thor's yet to return to either of those aforementioned outfits.
  • Crisis Crossover: Paralleling Spider-Verse to a T, Venomverse has Eddie Brock and the Venom symbiote of Earth-616 teaming up with a slew of alternate universe versions of Venom to combat the multidimensional threat of the Poisons.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Of the Blackmail-induced variety. Stryfe holds Deadpool's loved ones hostage, forcing the Merc with a Mouth to kill for him.
  • Grand Finale: For Bendis's (Ultimate) Spider-Man and Iron Man, Duggan’s Deadpool, and Slott's Amazing Spider-Man runs.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the end of Venom Inc., Black Cat drops her vendetta against Spider-Man. After losing her criminal enterprise, Venom suggests she returns to being a hero.
  • HULK MASH!-Up: In Avengers 1,000,000 B.C., Odin Allfather was a member of a group of superpowered individuals during the Stone Age which were remarkably similar to the Avengers. One member was a hulking, ape-like berserker named Starbrand who was granted his enormous strength by an alien energy called the Star Brand. Much like Thor and the modern-day Hulk, Starbrand and Odin would routinely get into fights over who is superior and argued over who would have the honor of slaying an invading Celestial.
  • Legacy Character: Unlike DC Rebirth, which sought to bring back lost legacy characters removed by the New 52, Marvel Legacy seeks to restore the series of classic heroes lost in the surge of creating newer heroes. This started with the Venom relaunch, which saw Eddie Brock reunite with the Venom symbiote, and the Nova relaunch, which saw Richard Rider be resurrected.
    • The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man and Ms. Marvel all delve into the idea of legacy as Amadeus is drawn into Banner's time as a gladiator, Miles attempts to figure out his place in the Marvel U and we see what kind of effect Kamala has made in her hometown when she disappears.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The first Legacy variant covers are this, making nods to classic comic covers.
    • The Punisher-as-War Machine storyline was actually conceptualized back in the 80s by the now-late Dwayne McDuffie as a mini-series called "The Killing Machine" where Frank would steal an Iron Man armor and paint it his signature colors, leading to Tony and Frank duking it out with a follow-up having Rhodey take up the armor on his own.
    • Deadpool's title rename hails from the All-New, All-Different Marvel relaunch issue #25, where Preston tells Deadpool 2099 that he was "despicable after the Avengers".
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Robbie Reyes spontaneously gains the Penance Stare during his battle with Star Brand. He even says afterwards that he didn't used to be able to use it.
  • New Season, New Name: Yet another "seasonal" relaunch of the entire Marvel Comics line, meant to serve as a jumping on point for new readers. This time, many titles will be hit with Legacy Numbering, meaning titles that would be issue #1 or what not will shoot up into the double or even triple digits, meaning some titles, such as Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers could be seeing numbers in the 700s and some titles actually gaining numbers due to various reasons. Interestingly, certain titles did get Legacy numbering yet others didn't. For instance, of the Defenders line of titles, only Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevil got Legacy numbering, though Defenders and Jessica Jones didn't.
    • A fleshed out example of the numbering comes from this infograph for The Incredible Hulk, which reveals that it doesn't include the original first six issues but does include Tales to Astonish, which Hulk took over.
    • Titles with double-billing are only given to one person. The Cable and Deadpool series is given to Deadpool, mostly because Deadpool took over the title after Cable's temporary death partway through while the original Power Man and Iron Fist series goes to Luke Cage as that title was originally Luke Cage: Hero for Hire before becoming Luke Cage, Power Man and then Power Man and Iron Fist.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Subverted: One of the founding members of the Avengers is apparently brand-new character Voyager, who is depicted as part of the Avengers statue in front of their mansion. Jarvis feels like something is off when looking at it, but can't quite figure out why.
  • Reset Button: Despicable Deadpool, Invincible Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk ends with this:
    • Deadpool ends with Deadpool erasing his memory of everything that happened in his previous writer's run (and practically everything else), resetting himself back to the Merc with a Mouth. Though a brief cut to 2099 does show that he will eventually regain his memories.
    • Iron Man ends with Tony back to full health and Rhodey being revived by Tony. Victor Von Doom ends up getting rescarred by a Dormammu-possessed Hood and runs back to Latveria to reclaim his kingdom in anger.
    • The Incredible Hulk ends with Amadeus taking a lankier Hulk form, but losing everything he held, including Banner's patents.
  • Retroactive Legacy: The one-shot introduces the Stone Age Avengers of 1, 000,000 B.C., who consisted of Thor's father Odin, Agamotto (the first Sorcerer Supreme), and past versions of Black Panther, Phoenix, Starbrand, Ghost Rider and Iron Fist.
  • Sixth Ranger: Some of the teams get new members. Ant-Man joines the Guardians of the Galaxy while Magik is with the Secret Warriors.
  • Spiritual Successor: Cable features a group consisting of Cable, Blink (from Age of Apocalypse), Shatterstar, Longshot, Doop and a time-displaced X-23 trying to protect the timeline. A group of mutants seeking to protect the timeline is the premise of Exiles, which even had Blink as a main character.
  • Status Quo Is God: Another interesting aspect of the Marvel Legacy initiative is the restoration of classic status quos that had been upheaved over the years, in particular since All-New, All-Different Marvel, although many of these restorations have a twist:
    • Among the first restored status quos, Eddie Brock reclaims the Venom symbiote from its latest host, Lee Price, and returns to being an antihero. However, he doesn't want a repeat of his time as the Lethal Protector and is trying to find a way to cure it of its growing bloodlust.
    • After the loss of his company during Secret Empire, Peter Parker returns to his everyman roots, where he hasn't been since he signed up with Horizon Labs in 2010's Big Time. While Peter returns to the Daily Bugle, it's as the editor of the science section and not as photographer.
  • The Stinger: Following his return in Marvel Legacy #1, Wolverine was featured in one-page stingers that came after the letters page of numerous comics. The issues that featured the stinger included a "Where's Wolverine?" badge with Logan's face in it.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Clint Barton and Bucky Barnes are forced to work together in the Tales of Suspense mini series to solve a mystery surrounding Black Widow's apparent death during Secret Empire. The storyline has been described by Marvel as an "Anti-Buddy book." The Worlds Collide crossover between Avengers and Champions has the eponymous teams work together despite not being on entirely good terms. In certain parts of the story, the Champions feel their elders are stepping over them.
  • There's No Place Like Home: At the end of the one-shot, we learn that Valeria is ready to go home, tired of spending all of this time since Secret Wars (2015) exploring the new multiverse.
  • Time Skip:
    • Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows undergoes a time-skip of eight years, putting Annie May in high school.
    • Spider-Man vs. Deadpool zips to a future with Peter and Wade in a nursing home together.
  • Walking the Earth: What Steve Rogers does during Home of the Brave.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Both Marvel Two-In-One and Ms. Marvel do this In-Universe, with Johnny and Ben trying to figure out where the Richards family disappeared to while Red Dagger arrives in New Jersey trying to find Kamala.
  • Where It All Began: The Darkhawk one-shot has Chris return to the amusement park where he first found the amulet. It's where he regains his powers and a brand new look.
