Some supervillains are like aspiring song-and-dance performers; they think they’ve got to head to New York City to make it big. Well, if you’re a noob who’s going to head to the capital of crime-fighting, you’re going to need this guide, courtesy of some of the Marvel Universe’s lamest bad guys and The Astonishing…
Sift through your memory banks through the founding members of the Avengers. Pick out the one who wound up living the most screwed-up life. A no-prize to everyone who chose Hank Pym. The first Ant-Man returns to Earth this week, more powerful and creepy than he used to be.
I’m really glad that Marvel’s publishing a new Power Man and Iron Fist series. But, man, it’s a real bummer that Jessica Jones is coming across like a bitchy housewife.
“Pick a side, and then make it better than the other side.”Those were the instructions I gave in our Civil War-themed Photoshop contest. These are the results.
Marvel’s most important black superhero has evolved a lot over 50 years. The Black Panther has gone from being an under-utilized figure in the background of Avengers group shots to arguably being the most fearsome strategist in the Marvel Universe. His elevation to Marvel’s top tier is a fascinating meta-story.
Spider-Man and Iron Man have been on-and-off allies for decades and worked in close partnership on the Avengers. Nowadays, they’re more like frenemies.
Frank Castle doesn’t say a word in the first issue of his new series. He really doesn’t need to.
Sure we’re dealing with some super-powered being sand Spider-Man isn’t in the art to represent Team Tony, but this is hardly a war. If they want a war, we’ll give them a war.
Team Steve and Team Tony don’t face off on the big screen until May 6, but the battle has already begun on my desk, courtesy of LEGO’s trio of Captain America: Civil War sets. Expect really big things.
12 years ago, Max Landis wasn’t a Hollywood screenwriter yet. He was just another guy writing fan-fiction about C-list Spidey villain The Shocker. Yeah, the guy who wears a quilted unitard.
It’s time for the Dark Lord of the Sith’s kill-crazy robots to get their own comics or TV show. Something, anything. They’re just too damn great.
Tilda Swinton punching Benedict Cumberbatch’s soul out of his body? Teach me, indeed.
It’s 2 A.M. on March 20 in France and Ta-Nehisi Coates is not sleeping. “I’m up learning to make maps so I can make one of Wakanda, believe it or not.”
Just like the movie, Michael Peña’s Luis completely steals the show in the currently PlayStation exclusive LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Ant-Man downloadable content.
Marvel’s Star Wars comics have been pretty damn good so far. But the creators on these titles have had it easy: they’ve been working with characters who have been popular and well-loved for decades. The team doing this week’s Poe Dameron comic has a tougher job: keeping the momentum going from one of the biggest…
In 1996, something happened that most superhero comics fans thought was impossible: DC Comics and Marvel mashed their characters together into an all-new fictional construct. The Amalgam era was truly a once-in-a-lifetime event, because the comics published during this brief experiment probably aren’t getting…
In all my years of toy collecting I’ve never managed to fully assemble one of Hasbro’s Marvel Legends Build-A-Figure sets. I’ve also never recorded a Toy Time video without a beard. First time for everything, I suppose.
Frank Castle’s been around for more than 40 years and, like most comic-book characters, has evolved over the course of his publishing history.
People talk about how bad the comics of the ‘90s were. But, after actually revisiting some of the storylines from two decades ago, they’re even worse than I remembered. Exhibit A: a crossover between Luke Cage, mercenary Silver Sable and an antihero who used other people’s body parts against a hellbeast with the power…
The final issue of Marvel’s everything-changing event series bids farewell to the fictional father figure of its superhero reality. Reed Richards doesn’t exit the stage quite the way we’ve been led to believe, either.
