The final issues are Captain America, Fantastic Four, FF, Incredible Hulk, Invincible Iron Man, New Mutants, The Mighty Thor, Uncanny X-Men and X-Men Legacy.

Some of those cancellations are unsurprising, coming in the wake of the announcement of new Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, New Avengers and All-New X-Men titles.

Jonathan Hickman's departure from Fantastic Four and the end of Ed Brubaker's long run on Captain America have left the titles primed for a relaunch.

Replacements for the Thor, Iron Man, Hulk and Fantastic Four titles are yet to be announced, but Marvel is not expected to keep those popular characters out of publication for long.

The relaunches will roll out between October and February of next year.
