Welcome to the launch of Marvel Forever!
I’ll be your host today. I’m Tony Thornley, the… instigator and moderator of Marvel Forever.
I’ve been trying to launch a fanfic group like Marvel Forever for several years now, and I’m excited to finally see it happen. As you can tell, the group is completely different from a typical fic group right away. We don’t have the standard sort of site that the traditional fanfic group has. Each series has its own blog, which the individual writers have complete control over. So head on over to the Avengers, Hulk, X-Men and Spider-Man pages and check them out!
(Note: New Warriors was a late addition, and we’ll have a page up for them VERY shortly. That’s totally my bad!)
The Front Line will be a biweekly newsletter that we’ll produce, giving you updates on series, writers and other goings on in Marvel Forever. After our launch this week, updates are 100% up to the writer, so although this newsletter will only go out biweekly, check back with your favorite series often, as the writer may have supplemental side stories, informational content, character biographies, favorite art and more!

One of the unique things about Marvel Forever is our title cap. We’re searching for titles that cover the gamut of the Marvel Universe experience, but we also don’t want to expand to the point of being too big. That means we won’t have six X-Men series, four Avengers series, solo series for Triathalon and Silverclaw (not that those wouldn’t be awesome), and a dibs list as big as the Library of Congress. We’re loosely capping the site at ten titles. That’s not to say that will be a permanent hard line, but we want to be focused on solid stories, not expanding like crazy. More power to the sites that do so, but that’s just not the point behind what we’re doing. I’m not trying to make subtle digs at other sites either. There is great work being done there, and all of our writers are with those other sites. We’re just a little different.
Anyways, back to the point. We still have five series available. We want you writing them. Those series are:
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Now, here’s the interesting thing- with the exception of FF, we’re flexible with those titles. If you want to do Dr. Strange instead of Ghost Rider or Heroes for Hire instead of Daredevil, fantastic, let’s see what you’ve got!
I promise I won’t be this long winded in future installments, but thanks for sticking with me. Now, get out there and read something!!
