The panel began with a slideshow featuring several of Marvel's upcoming books. Headlining the pack was "Captain America: The Chosen" by Rambo creator David Morrell and "Drax the Destroyer" artist Mitch Breitweiser. Brevoort noted that the project was conceived before Captain America was killed off in issue #25 of his series, and as such, "The Chosen" will take place in Captain America's last days. Travis Charest will be creating covers for the series.

The "Wraith" miniseries will feature the eponymous new character, but it was hinted that he may have some connections to a character of the past.

The cover to "New Avengers" #34 was shown, featuring what seemed to be retro incarnations of various members: Peter Parker in sweater vest and glasses, Wolverine in samurai regalia, and Luke Cage in yellow shirt and tiara.
