Marvel doesn’t just like making a big deal about their movies and TV shows; they also like taking to the airwaves to inform comic book readers and non-comic book readers alike about their most important developments on the printed page. Last year, the House of Ideas went on TV programs The Colbert Report and The View to announce Sam Wilson, a.k.a The Falcon, becoming the new Captain America and a new female Thor wielding Mjolnir, respectively. Luckily for The View, they’re getting to be the venue again for another big revelation in Marvel Comics this week.

According to Newsarama, the February 6th episode of the daytime talk show will present an announcement for a “game-changing title” that will spin out of Marvel’s Secret Wars event. Aside from the announcement being described as “forceful,” no other clues were given. While using The View yet again as a location for something like this seems odd (what percentage of their audience actually reads comic books?), this mysterious title does sound intriguing. Due to the female demographic that The View attracts and the show previously being used to announce the female Thor, we are suspecting that this announcement will be about a new-female led series. With that in mind, along with a few other trains of thought, here are some possibilities for upcoming books that Marvel may announce tomorrow.

5. The Phoenix Force
The Phoenix Force
Most of you know her as Jean Grey, but if you’re a reader of comic books (or had the misfortune of watching X-Men: The Last Stand), you know that she’s gone by another name: Phoenix. Bonded with the Phoenix Force, one of the universe’s primal entities, Jean has dealt with near-infinite amounts of power that have corrupted her at times. Although Jean Grey died in the comics last decade, a teenage Jean, along with the other four original teenage X-Men, were recently transported in time to the present-day. Although this Jean is still learning how to use her abilities, her power is still growing and she’s recently discovered an ability to absorb psionic energy. Marvel’s announcement is described as “forceful,” so if the young Jean follows in her older self’s footsteps, she could end up becoming Phoenix again, and perhaps now she’ll get to lead her own series.
