So Fear Itself is starting to wind down and will be finsihing up soon. So whats next for the Story Arc happy folks at Marvel? What else, more arcs.
A bunch of one shots grouped together and called Shattered Heroes. This is being pitched as less of an overall arc and more of a story progression/direction for certain titles. These issues will focus on the immediate aftermath of Fear Itself for some of the characters involved.
There are also two Fear Itself spin-0ffs/mini-arcs in the work. The first is the Fearless and is more stories about the fallout from Fear Itself and some of the X-Men Schism stories, but more broad then the Shattered Heroes one-shots.
The other mini-arc is called Battle Scars and will be what Tim Brevoort has called ground-level scale involving characters such as Captain America, SHIELD, Taskmaster, and other mercenary folks. This series will be more of a super-espionage type rather then galactic battle.
These new arcs have been defined as a re-aligning of the Marvel landscape after so many epic story lines have rocked the Marvel Universe.
