In the midst of the San Diego Comic-Con hoopla, Marvel Comics made quite a few announcements about their Autumn publishing slate – and one of the projects that I found most fascinating is the "Revolutionary War" miniseries that brings the characters and concepts of the '90s Marvel UK imprint back into the spotlight.  And despite all the madness and hyperactivity of Comic-Con, Andy Lanning took the time to answer some questions for MTV Geek's readers, and tell us a bit about his hopes and ambitions for the series.

heroes

By Matt D. Wilson

"Heroes" hasn't been on TV in more than three years, but that doesn't mean there aren't lots of fans of the series and its world still out there. So this week's news that "Heroes" will be making its return as a Dymanite Entertainment comics series written by "The Sixth Gun" and "Fearless Defenders" writer Cullen Bunn came as a welcome surprise for many.

The licensing deal is still quite new, so there isn't a lot to tell just yet, but MTV Geek spoke with Bunn to suss out what we could.

Watch: Dan DiDio on Stephanie Brown

Look, it's San Diego Comic-Con, you've got Dan DiDio on the microphone, so why not ask him the status of the popular DC Comics character. While he was still a bit cagey about what's happening with Stephanie Brown in the revamped DC Universe, he cautioned fans that it's better that she show up later than when originally planned in the line-wide "Forever Evil" event.

XMEN_7_COVER-crop

Aside from sparking some grumbling among male fans who just didn't want to see an X-Men team made up entirely of women, writer Brian Wood's "X-Men" book has been a big success.

Wood could pretty easily sit on his laurels and continue with the status quo, but he and artist Terry Dodson, who's coming onto the title with November's "X-Men" #7 aren't going to be doing that. In that issue, the team will be in a state of flux and facing down a challenge from Lady Deathstrike and her new Sisterhood. We asked Wood about the issue and the changes it'll bring.

We don't know a ton about what's going to be happening in Marvel's "Infinity" event just yet, but one thing we can be sure of is that Bruce Banner is going to come out of it a changed man. That's according to the solicitation for writer Mark Waid and artist Mahmud Asrar's "Indestructible Hulk" #16, coming out in November.

To get a little better idea of just what effect the event will have on Banner and the Hulk -- one thing we do know is that Banner comes out of it looking to build one gigantic bomb -- MTV Geek chatted with Waid and Asrar about what's to come.
