Fred Van Lente and Greg Pak confirmed that the "God Squad" will be back together in the upcoming issue of Chaos War in an attempt to stop the Chaos King.
Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, the architects of the Marvel Cosmic Universe, most currently The Thanos Imperative, announced a cosmic one-shot entitled Devastation Wave that will define the cosmic books that are to come.
Dan Slott described his self-penned Amazing Spider-Man: Big Time - in which Peter starts a career and expands his weaponry.
Fantastic Four #587 was discussed, in which the "Three" arc begins. The title will be shipped in a black bag and will mark the end of an era for the FF. An expanded article, including teaser images, can be found HERE.
The Ultimate Universe then came up, with Loeb discussing delays in Ultimate X due to the birth of Arthur Adams' first child. He said the issue will change the title and dynamics of the title.
Jason Aaron and Ron Garney will be bringing Ultimate Captain America to store shelves in January, focusing on a substitute Captain America who was in Vietnam.
A fan asked about the hiatus of Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy, and whether or not they would return. Singh replied that The Thanos Imperative will be changing the line very dramatically. There will be a Rocket Raccoon and Groot mini series, but fans will have to wait for The Thanos Imperative to wrap up before any more details will be announced.
Bendis confirmed that the Beetle will be returning to Ultimate Spider-Man.
