Good evening, Marvelites. In July 2014, Marvel Comics will be releasing a series of one-shots exploring the Marvel Universe in the year 2061 A.D.. According to PREVIEWSWorld, the stories, collectively refered to as "100th Anniversary Special", are created to deal with possible ends of the superhero careers of certain heroes or hero groups. For example, the one-shot 100th Anniversary Special: Spider-Man will take readers to a possible future end of Peter Parker as Spider-Man. Anyway, there will be 5 one-shots in the series and they are:
- 100th Anniversary Special: Fantastic Four (coming 7/02/2014)
- 100th Anniversary Special: Spider-Man (coming 7/09/2014)
- 100th Anniversary Special: X-Men (7/16/2014)
- 100th Anniversary Special: Avengers (7/23/2014)
- 100th Anniversary Special: Guardians of the Galaxy
It's always nice to see possible futures for comic book superheroes being narrated, even though their respective series are still running because no one can predict how long they've got to run until their finales. Plus, human superheroes in fiction, like people in our real world, know they can't go on with their careers forever (the Bruce Wayne of the Batman Beyond Universe from DC Universe canon for example). For me, the Spider-man one is in maybe read list.

According to numerous websites, today is exactly 50 years since the release of Amazing Fantasy No. 15, which marked the debut of the Marvel Comics' famous web-slinger Spdier-Man. That's right, Spider-Man has been in comics for 50 years and still slinging into action in not just comic books, but also other forms of media, such as video games and animated series for example.
Speaking of celebrating Spidey's 50th anniversary, make sure to visit your nearby comic shop on August 22 to pick up a copy of the double-sized The Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) No. 692, and there will be variant covers for that issue as well.
