Check out Marvel Comics' full solicitations for September 2016!

This September, "Civil War II" will release its penultimate issue -- and its effects will be felt across the Marvel Universe. Heroes will form unexpected alliances as well as fight unexpected foes, and more than a few characters will leap into the spotlight. To highlight some of the events coming up in a few months, CBR has scoured Marvel's September solicits for the biggest developments.

  • Some Marvel titles will get Prostate Awareness month variant covers; including "All-New, All-Different Avengers" #14, "Captain America: Steve Rogers" #6, "Invincible Iron Man" #13, "Captain Marvel" #9 and "The Mighty Thor" #11.
  • Ulysses, the new Inhuman at the center of "Civil War II's" conflict, will make predictions that affect the stories in "Luke Cage and Iron Fist," "Civil War II: Amazing Spider-Man" #4, "Squadron Supreme" #11, "Spider-Man" #8.
  • The cover for "Captain America: Steve Rogers" #6 implies that Steve Rogers will shift sides at some point during "Civil War II." While the initial "Civil War II: Choosing Sides" cover had him on Captain Marvel's side, previous covers for "Invincible Iron Man" and "Captain America: Steve Rogers" showed Cap fighitng alongside Iron Man. Now, the latest "Steve Rogers" cover features Cap fighting alongside Carol again.
  • The all-new Wasp will take the lead in "All-New, All-Different Avengers #14, as she "seeks guidance in the most unexpected place."
  • U.S. Agent returns in "Captain America: Sam Wilson" #13 -- and he doesn't look to be an ally of Sam Wilson's either.
  • It looks like Elektra's taking on a surprising new role as the commander of Agent Coulson's former team in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. #9." They'll be going up against Coulson's Third Faction.
  • Both "Web-Warriors" and "Howard the Duck" will each conclude their runs with issue #11; both series will get "last issue variants" to mark the occasion.
  • Miles Morales will be keeping busy in September; he's fighting Venom in "Spider-Man" #8 and Winter Soldier in "Thunderbolts" #5.
  • The civil war will go cosmic in "Guardians of the Galaxy" #12 when Carol Danvers faces off with Gamora.
  • Scott Lang's long-awaited trial will begin in "Astonishing Ant-Man" #12.
  • After almost a year, "Amazing Spider-Man" #18 will see Doc Ock will finally make a move after being trapped in the body of the Living Brain.
  • Two major Doctor Strange characters will return in September's two "Doctor Strange" issues; Baron Mordo will appear in "Doctor Strange" #12 and Clea will return in "Doctor Strange Annual" #1.
  • "Old Man Logan" #11 will see the titular clawed character team up with Lady Deathstrike in order to escape the even more villainous -- and mysterious -- Silent Order.
  • After outrunning it since the launch of the series, "All-New X-Men" #13 will see the teen X-team encounter the Terrigen Mist that's spreading across the globe.
