After the disastrous and controversial ‘Evil Captain America’ run, the original Steve Rogers has returned... and not a minute too soon.
Today would have been Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday, so it might be an apt moment to dust off your favourite copies of the Fantastic Four, Thor, Newsboy Legion, Fourth World, Kamandi, OMAC, Captain Victory, Eternals or even Silver Star.
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.)
I was finally able to read Secret Empire #0 and 1 (as well as the Free Comic Book Day issue) this week and my thoughts about it are: it’s pretty good, although requires knowledge of a lot of continuity. It is certainly better than Civil War II and, unlike what he said in an interview, Nick Spencer is including a lot…
Chris Evans, Captain America and one time Human Torch will be reading the Bedtime Story on CBeebies on May 10. He will be aided by some superhero themed toys but there is no word on whether his shield fit through the round window.
Last month saw the release of U.S.Avengers #1, written by Al Ewing with art by Paco Medina, about the new AIM-SHIELD-Avengers team led by Roberto daCosta, this time with a new patriotic flavor! Rereading it today, some things seem a bit, well, prescient. Like this:
Captain America alter ego Steve Rogers may be wearing a different costume in the upcoming third Avengers film.
So I figured I might start sharing some of my picks for favorite comic series I’m reading right now. I’ll probably update this every month or so. I’d love to hear yours too!
June 9 is Donald Duck Day celebrating everything about Donald Fauntleroy Duck. Known for his bad temper, Donald made his first celluloid appearance in The Wise Little Hen on this day in 1934 and has gone on to appear in more features than any of his Disney fellows.

What’s a Star Spangled Avenger to do? Not only is he exposed as a Nazi villain, he now stands accused of ruining the telly. On Sunday, the Twitterverse exploded with a truck load of abuse dumped on this fellow ...
Spoilers ahoy for Captain America: Civil War!
When Captain America Comics #1 was released in December of 1940, America had not yet entered World War II, but patriotism and jingoism were part of the zeitgeist of America. Cap wasn’t the first patriotic superhero — he was preceded by the Shield of MLJ Comics (who would later become Archie Comics) and Cap was similar…
When I was young, I knew my family was different. We didn’t celebrate Christmas, which was weird because everyone at school did. Instead, every November or December, we’d get out the menorah and light the candles. We weren’t very observant Jews, because we lit all the candles on the first day and then we’d trade gifts…
The Captain America comic book has never been afraid about getting political, from very first issue where Cap was shown punching out Hitler to the 1974 issue where it was revealed that the President of the United States was the leader of the Secret Empire and subsequently committed suicide (the writer, Steve…
I saw the movie this afternoon and I loved it. However, I was hoping for something in the post credit scenes that I didn’t get and I feel it was a wasted opportunity. Spoilers after the jump.
I just watched Avengers 2.5 this morning, and wanted to share my feelings with people, but found out that one of my favorite movie reviewers, Vince Mancini at Filmdrunk, already articulated everything I thought, better than I could, with his review: “Captain America: Civil War’ Is Everything ‘Batman V Superman’ Wanted…
I have many thoughts about Captain America: Civil War. Many, many thoughts. First and foremost, however, I must put forward that this post will contain many spoilers. Many, many spoilers. Enter at your own risk. Caveat lector.
