Say what you will about Secret Empire, but the exploration of its aftermath in Marvel Legacy has been excellent. Case in point: Iceman and the former members of the Champions of Los Angeles grieving after the death of Black Widow.
In response to Charles Pulliam-Moore’s post “It Looks Like The Wrong Person Died in Marvel’s Secret Empire” article, I wrote a partial version of this initially as a response, but it grew into a full article in its own right. I have cleaned it up, rewritten it, and added content. (Spoilers for Secret Empire #7.)
The All-New, All-Different Marvel officially launched in October 2015, meaning that it has now been nine months since it began. However, Marvel is already preparing for their next relaunch in the wake of Civil War II called Marvel NOW. So let’s take a look back at all the All-New, All-Different books and check out…
Women who kick ass, or are bad ass, have been coming more to the forefront of science fiction and fantasy in recent years. In books, movies, television, and comics we are seeing more of them. That is fantastic. However, I feel like they might be casting a shadow on great female characters whose strength is not…
The team of writer Mark Waid, artist Chris Samnee, colorist Matt Wilson and letterer Joe Caramagna, who just finished their award-winning run on Daredevil a few weeks ago, are now working on a Black Widow book for the All-New, All-Different Marvel.
So I woke up to find these on my Facebook feed, which I then traced back to this Imgur post made popular via Reddit, so I’m not sure how authentic it is, because I haven’t seen the footage in question which is from D23. However, the pics themselves seem to fit what we know of the movie so far. Possible spoilers to…
So almost the entire lineup of the All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe has been revealed and there are, of course, some things that stayed the same and some things that were radically different. But not every book was there — after all, Marvel did say it would be releasing 55-60 new books. So what books should they…
(A bit of this is paraphrased from a comment on another post, so apologies if anyone finds it repetitive.)
I’ll just say it: I fucking loved Natasha in Age of Ultron. Reading that Black Widow post on the main page was bewildering. And quite frankly all this backlash is pissing me off. (Spoilers from here on out.)
Writer, Alyssa Rosenberg of The Washington Post, wrote a great article examining the heroism and feminism of Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron. You can read it here.
Earlier this week we got the official character posters of Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk, and now we have a few more to add, namely Black Widow, Nick Fury, and Thor. We're still waiting on Captain America, The Vision and Hawkeye, and maybe Maria Hill, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver as well (I can dream). I have to…
I love stories that take place before something apocalyptic happens: characters that know what is going to happen, but are helpless to stop it. They have their last meals, spend their last nights with their loved ones, and then accept the inevitable.
This week's Agent Carter reveals the origin of an Avenger, brings back the Howling Commandos, and finally has Peggy take charge! It all seems too good to be true. Is this the rising action before the fall?
I love this. I will call this the trailer for the Most Expensive Movie Ever Made. It's 6 hours long, and only sort of has a plot, but it makes a gagillion dollars anyway, because come ON!
Who needs strange growth hormones or LMDs? Shortpacked reveals what SHIELD really uses in cases of intense medical trauma.
Let's face it, DC are never going to get their act together and give us a Wonder Woman movie any time soon. Even the CW aren't going to give us a Birds of Prey spin-off series from Arrow, are they? I've not heard anything about it, if they are.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in the nationwide wide and if your theater was anything mine, every fifth person or so in the row was a hardcore comic geek jumping for joy at certain scenes. If you've seen the movie, AND ONLY IF YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE, here's a lowdown on the film. THERE BE SPOILERS HERE.
Remember the posters for Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World that had the female lead clutching the male protagonist for dear life? Well, bootycap (by way of The Mary Sue) has turned the tables in this new poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
