A large portion of the Marvel NOW! catalogue has leaked on Imgur, Newsarama reports. The catalogue, which will be officially released on Wednesday, details Marvel's relaunch following the company's current Civil War II storyline. The relaunch contains a ton of brand new titles and major status quo shakeups for Marvel characters.
Cheif among the shake-ups is Mary Jane Watson and Peter Parker apparently getting back together. A cover for Amazing Spider-Man #1: Renew Your Vows was leaked and it promises a storyline called "One More Chance". Both of these indicate a possible undoing of the controversial "One More Day" storyline, where Peter and MJ sold their marriage to the devil in order to save Aunt May's life and the timeline was reset so that the couple was never married. Peter and Mary Jane have been pretty much broken up since then, but it looks like that might change soon. The story will be written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Ryan Stegman.
Another big reveal is the possible return of Richard Rider as Nova. Rider made a sacrifice to stop the villain Thanos and was trapped in an alternate universe as a result. (Basically. It's complicated). His successor, Sam Alexander, has been the Marvel Universe's only Nova for a long time, but it looks like that might be changing soon. The previews also show Miles Morales (Spider-Man) sharing a steamy kiss with "Gwenpool", the bizarre combination of Deadpool and Gwen Stacey.

That's a pretty impressive lineup of talent! The Marvel NOW! line is set to launch in October 2016. Keep in mind that that doesn't mean all of these titles will neccessarily launch in October. Also keep in mind that Marvel has said they will be announcing more Marvel NOW! titles at a later date and those titles won't be launching in October.
I wasn't a huge fan of One More Day, so I'm excited for the possibility of it being undone. In addition, it looks like there are some cool new titles and new twists awaiting Marvel fans with this relaunchl. What about you? Do you have any favorite titles from the list? What do you think of these shakeups? Is there anything that concerns you?
