Here’s the time-twisting first trailer for Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. Looks like temporal super villain Kang is doing something that’ll let us play with characters from throughout Marvel Comics’ entire timeline. Doesn’t seem like such a bad guy, that Kang.

Natasha Romanoff has been a superhero. She’s also been a spy. Right now, she’s somewhere in between the morality of those two poles. Before she was either of those, however, she was an assassin. This week’s new Black Widow comic shows the first time the young Natasha killed someone. It’s nasty.

But, in the newest Black Panther comics, both T’Challa and the nation he reigns over have internal…
After watching the first seven episodes of the Luke Cage Netflix series, I can confidently say that its lead character doesn’t always feel like the Power Man who’s shown up in decades of Marvel comics. But, as this spoiler-free review will show, I like him anyway. This Luke Cage is still an everyman superhero that…
