Well, I guess everyone now knows that the Marvel most of us knew is coming to an end. Just like Crisis on Infinite Earths before it and DC's current (not a) reboot option, Marvel is ridding itself of many years of history baggage and cherry-picking the best for the next cycle. Didn't they do that once and call it an Ultimate universe? Not as ultimate as once thought I guess. But that universe is being cherry-picked too and will end at the same time.
I once owned the poster represented here (sans 'R.I.P.) and it adorned my walls until it could no longer hold itself together. Maybe that's what's going on with Marvel. Just can't hold itself together any more.
