Monthly Marvel Preview: September 2020

Several Marvel books return from their involuntary hiatus in the month of September. Do you remember Aero and Sword Master? How about the Doctor Doom series or the Falcon & Winter Soldier team-up book? All returning along with Savage Avengers as well. In addition to returning titles, Marvel drops a slew of new solo titles for some of their most popular characters.   

Events: Empyre concludes, so expect a lot of action out of the event’s regular players including Hulkling and his Young Avenger friends, the Avengers and Fantastic Four thanks to the “Aftermath” titles. The youth-centered “Outlawed” events resumes once again in the pages of Miles Morales: Spider-Man and The Magnificent Ms. Marvel. Concluding events include Conan: Battle For the Serpent Crown and the Giant Sized X-Books, this time featuring Storm. The X-Men are not done there however, as they feature in the return of the Marvel Snapshots and kick off “X of Swords,” the first big X-event in the Dawn of X. 

Team-Ups and Guest appearances: Team-ups and guest appearances look to be a rare occurrence in the month of September. Iron Man has been good for a surprise appearance over the past year so it should be no surprise he pops up in the latest Aero title. Spider-Man’s Amazing Friends — Miles Morales, Spider-Woman and Silk, to name a few — gather in a special “Sins Rising” interlude story centered around Norman Osborn. The other guaranteed guest appearance looks to be Iceman in Fantastic Four, which reveals a secret story of Fire replaced by Ice. 

Gambles: With appearances limited in the month of September, taking a gamble on one of the new series kicking off might be a good bet. Iron Man gets a new book, but he’s hardly a gamble. the Immortal She-Hulk will have a big story to tell following the titular character’s death in Empyre. That leaves Black Widow, Juggernaut, and Shang-Chi as the other remaining new solo series for mainstream characters with the potential to start off with a bang.
