"You know, I’ve always loved the Old Man Logan story. That’s a beauty. Maybe in 20 years time I’ll just pop up and do that one." - Hugh Jackman, 2014

As you may or may not have heard, the upcoming 'Logan' film is loosely inspired by the storyline 'Old Man Logan', a comic that Hugh Jackman had been hoping to adapt for years. Everything indicates that the similarities will likely be thematic for obvious reasons (99% of the major characters couldn't appear in a Fox film) but if you wanted to see the launching pad for the film here it is.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

When it comes to the actual battles that the characters in “Civil War” will be fighting, readers shouldn’t expect the anti-registration side to just be reactive in fighting for their cause. “They will be a combination of both reactive and proactive,” Millar explained. “I didn’t want to just have these guys in, say, like a terrorist cell or anything because fundamentally Cap’s guys are superheroes. So, the rationale for the Marvel Universe shouldn’t be that they’re just underground guys who are constantly fighting the forces of the status quo. They’ve got to be superheroes. They’ve got to go out and actually fight super villains and, unfortunately, SHIELD and the other superheroes are after them when they’re doing so. It’s an added tension to the whole thing.”

“Civil War” is a conflict between the heroes of the Marvel Universe, but the villains do a play a role in the series. Millar is keeping their part in the story a secret, but he did reveal that he would be touching on an idea from his “Marvel Knights Spider-Man” run in which a secret cabal of industrialists conspired to create many of the costumed villains in the Marvel Universe. “There’s some stuff going on with the villains about half way through the book, but really the main focus of the series is the split between the heroes and the other stuff is just really seasoning.”

The split between the heroes is over the superhuman registration act, which mandates that anyone who puts on a costume and goes out to try and enforce the law must register with and become an agent of the federal government. Heroes who violate the law will find themselves imprisoned in newly redesigned secretive superhuman penitentiaries. “That’s actually quite a big plot point,” Millar stated. “There’s a whole new way of storing super villains and heroes who refuse to sign. It’s quite a big deal. We’re really updating the Marvel Universe in a lot of ways.”

“Civil War” will also address how countries around the world view the US government’s new policy on super humans. Some of the fictional Marvel countries that don’t exactly see eye to eye with the US, like Wakanda, Latveria, Atlantis, and Providence, might even become embroiled in the events of the story. “Some will be involved quite a bit and others will remain neutral and others might come in at a later stage,” Millar explained. “That’s part of the meat of the story really.”

The various countries of the Marvel Universe will have different degrees of participation in “Civil War,” but the globe spanning organization SHIELD will play a definite part in the mega-story. “SHIELD’s new boss Maria Hill isn’t quite as cozy with the superheroes as Nick Fury was,” Millar stated. “So, that works very well within the scenario. It would have been a lot harder to do this if Nick, who is very pro-superhero, was in charge because he would have been probably against the registration act, whereas, Maria Hill made the story a whole lot easier for that.”

"The idea with Uncanny Inhumans is to give you a huge, swirling superhero story - tons of character interaction and drama, setpieces galore." - Charles Soule

'I think the “Uncanny” books (whether you’re talking X, or Avengers, or wherever else it might be used) contain a certain type of anything-goes storytelling. Uncanny, in my mind, really means “not the same old thing,” and that’s this book all over. It’s big, it’s brash, and it takes no prisoners.' - Charles Soule

'Old Man Logan' is considered to be a magnum opus of sorts for Wolverine to the point that Hugh Jackman has said he'd like to adapt it someday. It takes place in a dystopian future in which the villains have won and Wolverine has refused to pop his claws.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

"Black Bolt is always depicted as part of a larger ensemble – the Inhuman royal family, the Illuminati. It’s extremely rare to see him flying off and doing his own thing from start to finish. In Uncanny Inhumans, we get to see him really mixing it up – we see how he fights, which does not always end with him uttering some perfectly apropos word and blasting his opponents into oblivion."

- Charles Soule

Marvel is giving the Inhumans another title, "Uncanny Inhumans," from Soule and McNiven.

IGN: The use of the "uncanny" adjective is quite interesting, as it was originally used with the X-Men. In a way, it feels like Marvel has been pushing the Inhumans to be the new X-Men of the Marvel U, and this title certainly reinforces that idea. How did you land on the title of Uncanny Inhumans?

Soule:
Uncanny has been used in the Marvel Universe to refer to a number of different books - I mean, there's Uncanny Avengers, and others. I wouldn't read too much more into it than that - uncanny just means strange, really, or unexpected. I think the Inhumans are certainly that.

Of course, the reason why they were called the Uncanny Avengers is because the team was originally supposed to be a combo of the Avengers and the X-Men (though that theme seems to have been dropped with the relaunch, with Rogue being the only X-Man still on the team unless you want to be generous and count Sabretooth too).

The Sentry is an extremely powerful superhero who was created in 2000, but paradoxically has always been a part of the Marvel Universe, it's a massive retcon that involves wiped memories, but in his original miniseries and one shot tie it's revealed that a picture of him earned Peter Parker a pulitzer, he helped the Hulk control his rages and and got the public to love Hulk, and he was Reed Richard's best friend outside of the Fantastic Four.

There were some neat ideas in it, exploring what the Marvel Universe would be like in different eras with a Superman type character, and if it was a What If or it had been limited to that one Marvel Knight's event, I would 't give it a second thought.

But in 2005 Brian Micheal Bendis reintroduced the character in 4 issue arc of The New Avengers, and while I think the arc was pretty well written and had some sweet touching moments I think the Sentry's canon existance is a bad idea in general.
