Marvel's Rebirth is an event started by Cartoon44 that consists of several new comic series, taking place in an all new universe (Earth-5919) of different backstories for each character. The name of the launch is partially due to the fact that all stories are reborn and started entirely new.
Rebirth of Spider-Man
After being bitten by a radioactive spider, the symbiote is soon attracted to the likes of Richard Parker, which also happens to be the starting point of a brand new hero named Spider-Venom. In a world where Richard Parker was not killed, and his son Peter becomes his greatest foe, it is truly unknown how the story unfolds, as this is a Spider-Man story like no other!
Rebirth of Captain America
Howard Stark, founder of Stark Industries, brilliant scientist and inventor, was the subject of Project Rebirth, after he bought out the operation itself with his own fortune. As the world's first super soldier, and with his advanced knowledge of technology, he decides to take a path astray from business, becoming the superhero known as Captain America. How does this affect the war on HYDRA? Can Howard Stark be a better Captain than Steve Rogers - or will he be worse?
Captain America vs Iron Man: Rebirth
Throughout his childhood, teen years and beginning of adulthood, Tony Stark's father has been absent from his life. Growing up without his riches, and leading a relatively poor life, Tony relies on his intelligence and wit to survive. When he returns to America from a terrorist kidnapping and an electromagnet keeping a piece of shrapnel from his heart as Iron Man, he discovers the appearance of Captain America. Claiming to be Howard Stark, his long lost father, Tony becomes angry to find he is still alive, after believing him to be dead for over 30 years. Deciding to become a better hero than his father, Tony competes for the title of New York's most beloved, occasionally crossing into each other's own paths. Who is the hero New York truly deserves?
Rebirth of The Hulk
Not long after Bruce Banner is exposed to a wave of gamma radiation, creating the monstrous hero known as the Hulk, the government begins to take notice. With power too great to be left alone, Hulk is seen as a menace and a threat. Using the only option they have, they decide to take the power into their own hands. Using his family as blackmail, Banner unwilingly becomes their newest soldier -- and weapon.
Rebirth of The Avengers
As the world's heroes finally form, it is time for them to form together to take on a new threat foreign to their Earth -- but that's easier than it sounds. Matt Murdock, director of SHIELD, decides to take part in helping to assemble an elite team of superheroes which include Spider-Venom, Hulk, Iron Man and Captain America. But to do so, he must first gain the trust of each candidate, and then establish trust with each other to help become the world's newest set of protectors known as The Avengers.
Flash Thompson, Quicksilver: Rebirth
Pietro Maximoff was transported to America at an early age with his father to avoid any superstition of his mutant powers and was also separated from his twin sister, Wanda, who remained in Europe with her mother. In doing so, he took on a new name and a new identity to fit in: Flash Thompson. Growing up in New York City and without any guidance to control his powers, Flash struggles to manage his responsibilities as well as finding out who he is and what he's capable of.
When Midtown Science High student Eddie Brock finds himself bitten by a spider akin to what gave Richard Parker his powers, he eventually decides to take them out on to the streets to defend his city neighborhood, unknowingly gaining the attention of Spider-Venom. With the help of Richard, Eddie is soon able to mold into the mantle of "Spider-Man", forming Marvel Rebirth's greatest duo -- of course, with a few roadblocks along the way.
After a radioactive grenade to the face during a heated battle between Hydra and SHIELD, Nick Fury is left hospitalized. When he finally recovers, he discovers his new ability of heightened senses with the cost of his vision. Alongside that, during his absence from SHIELD, Matt Murdock took over the role of SHIELD director. Left without the ability to see and his position, he still strives to help SHIELD anyway he can -- even if it means going blind. However, he can't do it as Nick Fury anymore. He must become the Daredevil.
Reed Richards, exposed to cosmic rays in a space flight accident that gave him the powers of invisibility, super durability, pyrokinesis and elasticity, lands on a foreign and abandoned planet with no means of escape. During his time there, he learned how to control his powers, as well as how to return home. Unfortunately, he had also grown insane, becoming a seemingly unstoppable superhuman threat. With the world unprepared, it is up to General Doom (Victor Von Doom) to lead a team, known as the Doom Patrol, of trained soldiers that include Ben Grimm, Johnny Storm, and Susan Storm to defend their city against who they all once knew close.
In response to recent gathering threats that endanger the lives of the everyday citizen, Matt Murdock has tasked Daredevil (Nick Fury), Falcon (Clint Barton), Black Widow (Jessica Drew) and Winter Soldier (Steve Rogers) to handle situations under the public eye and follow direct SHIELD operations, opposite to the Avengers. But what exactly are they needed for in the shadow of the world's greatest superheroes? Join the SHIELD Elites, on a mission to not only protect the world, but find out what their purpose is that has been given to them by SHIELD itself.

Better yet -- what is his purpose?

She eventually gives birth to T'Challa, the next prince of both Wakanda and Atlantis.
