Superhero history has repeated itself, with the lineup of Marvel Entertainment's fall 2016 comic book relaunch being leaked online ahead of its planned release.

As with last year's All-New, All-Different Marvel relaunch, the print catalog promoting the fall Marvel NOW! relaunch was leaked a day early on image-sharing site Imgur. The anonymous leak includes images for 25 new or continuing titles that are part of the relaunch's first month, with an additional teaser image and a checklist that lists an additional number of series without preview art.

New launches include the already announced U.S. Avengers, Champions and Jessica Jones titles, with other new titles including the fascinatingly named Occupy Avengers, The Unstoppable Wasp (a new character capitalizing on the increased profile of the Wasp concept following last year's Ant-Man movie), and Gamora, the Guardians of the Galaxy spinoff title originally announced in 2014.

There are some unexpected absences from the final checklist, including the regular Amazing Spider-Man series and any series bearing the title X-Men. In both cases, the characters are represented via special spinoff series (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows and The Clone Conspiracy for Spider-Man, Death of X for X-Men), and it's likely the franchises will be part of future waves of the Marvel NOW! program.

When asked for comment, a Marvel spokesperson told THR that the preview magazine will be officially available for free in comic book stores tonight at midnight, and digitally Wednesday. Additionally, Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort seemingly addressed the leak on Twitter:
