Axel-In-Charge: Facing the 'Divided' Marvel NOW! Future
This is the debut of a brand-new feature. It is a lot like my Provide Some Answers feature, which is about long-running comic book plots finally being resolved. This, though, is a more specific comic book occurrence where the plotlines of a canceled comic book are wrapped up in the pages of another comic book series. This would happen most frequently in Marvel Comics, but other companies did it, as well.
We begin with a story I featured years ago as an Abandoned an’ Forsaked, as well, which is how the Avengers saved Spider-Woman from not only being dead, but also being forgotten!
On the first page of this feature, I’ll show how the series originally ended and on the next page, I’ll show you how another comic book series wrapped it up.
Spider-Woman #50 marked the end of her series, and scripter Ann Nocenti and editor Mark Gruenwald ended the book on a somber note (the issue was drawn by Brian Postman and Sam De La Rosa), where Spider-Woman encounters an old sorcerer friend who is actually a ghost and he convinces her to join him (in astral form) to help him defeat Morgan Le Fey. They succeed, but in the process, Jessica loses her mortal body.
So now dead, she decides to make everyone forget she ever existed…
That’s an awfully depressing way to end a comic book series.
Anyhow, so that’s how Spider-Woman ended. But how was it wrapped up? Go to the next page to find out!
