Monthly Marvel Preview: July 2019

Thor and the rest of the Midgardian heroes have won the War of the Realms, and now the Marvel Universe deals with its fallout. In addition to War of the Realms Omega, the event’s prologue issue, July kicks off a new ongoing series for Loki. Jane Foster may be without a hammer, but she’s got a new Asgardian upgrade and solo title as the avenging Valkyrie. Aero and Sword Master, two of the New Agents of Atlas, get their own titles while Punisher assembles a Kill Krew to keep the war going across the realms.

In a month full of minis, one shots and new series, The Punisher gets an Annual comic, as does Venom. Captain America and his wartime allies invade a new mini titled the Bahamas Triangle. Claws and fangs clash in the Wolverine vs. Blade Special. An iconic feud is revisited when the Hulk tangles with the Thing in the Fantastic Four series. Marvel’s first family stars in the the first chapter of “Prodigal Son,” a three-part team-up between the Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Ka-Zar. Invisible Woman stands out from her group with her first limited series and an appearance in Fearless, a title showcasing some of Marvel’s top heroines including Captain Marvel and Storm. Oh, and did we forget to mention that the era of the HiX-Men begins with Jonathan Hickman’s return to Marvel with House of X and Powers of X?

Dopplegangers or repeat appearances of our main characters are found in the Essentials, Marvel Action, Marvel Legends, Marvel Tales, Marvel Super Hero Adventures and Mighty World of Marvel books as well as any MCU tie-in series and thus do not count for their prime universe counterparts. Please see the attached Power Summary file for further power clarifications and follow along with our #FantasyComicLeague tweets on Twitter for official power scoring and discussions. Appearance estimates, based on comic solicitations and cover artwork provided by the Marvel Database wiki, are meant as a guideline and not an indication of a specific draft order. Character names, team designations and power sets conform to the most current information provided by the Database.

Power designations are simplified for easier classification and choice, providing the majority of the heroes with up to 11 eligible powers from which to choose. As a reminder, you may only have one hero per team designation on your roster and are allowed to select three powers from the heroes’ power set. Powers in (parenthesis) are a subset of the overall ability and can be selected as well as the generic use of that power. For example, Deadpool can be drafted as any of his four team classifications and can use Weapons, Blades and Guns as his three powers (Blades and Guns being a subset of the overall Weapons skill).
