We saw Marvel making quite a few announcements at this year’s C2E2 event. They are letting the fans know about all of the exciting new series and events set to arrive this year. After the publisher revealed Absolute Carnage from Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, it shared the first info about an exciting new project from writer Mark Waid. It will be the one that attempts to retell an ultra-condensed version of everything that has gone down in the Marvel Universe to this point.

‘History of the Marvel Universe’ Series
The six-issue series is titled The History of the Marvel Universe. Waid is attached to write every issue with Javier Rodriguez and Alvaro Lopez illustrating. Marvel announced this series during the Diamond Retailer Breakfast on Friday morning. It is expected to arrive later this year. Steve McNiven will be delivering all six covers for the series.
This could be yet another way for Marvel to bring a singular continuity to its history. But, it could also be just a fun little series to explore all of the weird and wacky things that have happened in the publisher’s past.
Marvel is definitely going to make many more announcements as C2E2 continues this weekend. The company kicked things off with a bang by announcing Cates and Stegman’s Absolute Carnage. It will bid Venom and Carnage against each other once again. The series will unofficially kick off with Spider-Man/Venom #1 on Free Comic Book Day. It will begin with its own title in August.
“Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been,” Cates says in the video. “ABSOLUTE CARNAGE encompasses every single character who has ever worn a Symbiote and every Symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit. Going from there to MAXIMUM CARNAGE to VENOMIZED to everything… everyone is a target.”
