Next month, Marvel is introducing a whole new line up of comics—and a whole new universe to go with them. Don’t know your Earth-616 from your Earth-65? What the hell is with this Secret Wars thing? Will your favorite hero still have a comic? Will they even be the same person? Here’s everything you need to know going… »
Galactus and Deadpool—two guys classified as “bad guys” at one point in time—are going to be Avengers when the Marvel Universe returns to a more recognizable form this fall. And they’re going to have a lot of company, some of whom are coming from alternate universes.
The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning.

The whole point of the Hulkbuster is that it’s a suit that goes over Iron Man (well, that’s secondary to the point of it punching the Hulk, but you know what I mean) but so few of the myriad Hulkbuster toys have let you put a full Iron Man figure inside them.
