The super heroes have fallen. The country has been divided into territories controlled by super villains. Among the wastelands lives CLINT BARTON – one of the few Avengers to survive. But it’s been 45 years, and he’s no Avenger. Trying to eke out a living anyway he can, the former HAWKEYE is confronted with a startling discovery: the sharpshooter is going blind. With time running short, Clint realizes there’s one last thing he wants to see: revenge for his fallen comrades-in-arms.
Rising-star writer ETHAN SACKS and superstar artist MARCO CHECCHETTO take you back to the Wastelands in a story set five years before the original classic OLD MAN LOGAN.

A new Avengers title dubed U.S.Avengers will debut this fall from Marvel Comics, according to The Washington Post. The team will be comprised of Sunspot, Red Hulk, Cannonball, a new Iron Patriot, Pod, Squirrel Girl, and a Captain America from the future - who happens to be Luke Cage and Jessica Jones' grown-up daughter, Danielle Cage.
“We wanted a couple of members that’d speak to the U.S. in the title — hence super-scientist and supporting player Dr. Toni Ho stepping up to the main team as the new Iron Patriot, and General Ross waiting in the wings as the Red Hulk,” said series writer Al Ewing, who will be joined by artist Paco Medina. “And, of course, Danielle Cage, the Captain America of about thirty years in the future, who’ll be joining us for at least the first arc, as an enemy from her time comes to ours to stir up trouble.”
The title seems to pick up the storyline from the current New Avengers series featuring a re-organized A.I.M. Avengers team led by Sunspot. Like New Avengers, it will be written by Al Ewing, however it's not known if that series will continue.

But when the city’s shadiest power brokers begin turning up dead – each murdered more gruesomely than the last – Nighthawk must ask himself the hard questions. Does this killer deserve to be caught? What does he want? More importantly, what does the killer have to do with Nighthawk? To answer those questions – Nighthawk might have to look in the mirror first. The mystery begins here! Don’t miss one minute of the bone-crunching action when NIGHTHAWK #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices this May!
Deadpool is leading his second ongoing series as Marvel has greenlit the current miniseries Deadpool and the Mercs for Money as an ongoing beginning in July, according to ComicBook. In the new series, the the mercenary team will reportedly be "hunting radioactive villains." Longtime Deadpool writer Cullen Bunn will continue on the book, and be joined by artist Iban Coello
"I don't think we set out for the miniseries to act as a pilot episode. I mean, whenever you do a limited run, you hope the reaction will be strong enough to warrant a continuation, and that's what is happening here," said Bunn. "I don't want to be too cryptic, but this new series offered some unique challenges and opportunities that I just couldn't pass up. I really think this will be something very different than what you might expect. It's safe to say that the tone of this series is pretty different from the tone of the mini. I wish I could say more, but I think all will be made clear by the end of the first arc.
The solicitation for the first issue of the ongoing title is as follows:

Hey O&G fans, with the popularity of her different Variant covers like SPIDERGWEN, GWENPOOL is getting her own ongoing series in April 2016. According to Entertainment Weekly. Writer Christopher Hastings and art team Gurihiru will launch The Unbelievable Gwenpool, based on themash-up character created by Chris Bachalo as a one-off for a variant cover in early 2016. She made her in-story debut recently in Howard the Duck, which was quickly followed up by Gwenpool Holiday Special, but this new ongoing series will delve into her origins.
Gwenpool was recently revealed in the Gwenpool Holiday Special to be unrelated to Gwen Stacy completely, as a new character named Gwen Poole. Hastings said the decision to give Gwenpool an ongoing came from Marvel noticing the inordinate amount of interest in the character from the cosplay community after she appeared in a one-off variant cover.

Hey O&G fans, Marvel has given us a little clue about what the 2015 Civil War/ Secret Wars tie-in is about. Battle world has been re-visiting some of Marvels great story arcs, and this time from creators Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman) and Leinil Yu (Avengers). Heroes fighting one another in a nation divided, the conflict has been going on for six years now. Captain’s forces square off against Iron Man’s, under the command of General Steve Rogers and President Tony Stark.
Peace is far from attainable, and each side will do whatever it takes to end the war. The Top-Secret project Bellcurve is said to have the ability to end the war in one swift stroke, there is talk of damning information that could topple the President Stark administration from within, and what will our heroes’ enemies do to exploit the Superhuman Civil War to their advantage.
Marvel history is reshaped on Battleworld in Civil War #1.
