Writers J.M. DeMatteis and Brian Reed have revealed to Marvel their plans for Thor and Spider-Man respectively.
DeMatteis on the Mighty Thor Annual: “Although the Surfer, Galactus, the Other, Oblivion and Scrier all play pivotal roles in the story, it’s Thor’s story first and foremost and begins in a very personal way, when Don Blake discovers that a dear friend isn’t what she seems. That discovery leads him from Earth to the edges of the Creation and involves him in an ancient conflict that nearly destroys the universe—[though] I don’t think I’ll be spoiling anything if I reveal that the Marvel Universe survives this story!”
Brian Reed on the Amazing Spider-Man Annual #39: “The “Parker Luck” strikes hard on this one. It’s bad enough to discover you’ve never been born, and everyone you know and love has no idea who you are. But imagine you learn that the world was actually a better place without you? Of course, all is not as it seems, especially when it comes to time travel in the Marvel Universe. And in Peter Parker’s life, the worst day ever is always just prelude to something really, really bad.”
