Marvel Next was a short lived imprint that was launched by the American comics publisher Marvel Comics in early 2005. It was designed to spotlight several unrelated titles that featured young protagonists. Like the Tsunami imprint before it, it aimed to attract young readers. Marvel Next titles carried a "Marvel Next" tag on the cover, but not in the place imprint names generally carry their logos. The title may have been an attempt to appeal to or identify with Generation Next.

The titles were set in the Marvel Universe and most of them (Araña: The Heart of the Spider, Young Avengers, Runaways and Amazing Fantasy) had connections to pre-existing titles, taking advantage of settings, characters and events from previous stories.

Crossover

There was very little crossover between the various comics. Prior to the Civil War: Young Avengers/Runaways comic the Young Avengers and the Runaways had been mentioned in one another's comics.

The closest thing to a crossover centred on the fictional drug MGH. It appeared in numerous Marvel titles over the years previously and appeared in a two-part Young Avengers story in Autumn 2005. The following month, the Runaways were asked to fight the Pusher Man, an MGH dealer.

Gravity appeared in Marvel Team-Up, alongside other new heroes such as Araña and X-23, and Excelsior member Darkhawk.

In 2006, Marvel Comics published the crossover Civil War: Young Avengers/Runaways as part of the larger Civil War event.
