    Huh… So that happened, didn’t it? With this week’s issue, ‘Superior Spider-Man’ has come to a close and the true Peter Parker has returned to reclaim his place as the one and only true Spider-Man. Now, while it may not seem like I’m happy with this ending based on this paragraph so far, but I […]

    In the last issue Jason Aaron made it clear that the direction he was going with in the series would be based upon the future X-Men. We already know that Quire is supposed to grow up and become the Phoenix and we’ve had hints that Evan will grow up to embrace being Apocalypse. With some […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Ms. Marvel’ #3

    I really did not think it was possible to love Ms. Marvel more, but three issues in and I feel like I will be expecting so much more from the rest of the Marvel world. While the plot may seem the usual humdrum of “misunderstood nerd gets superpowers”– which I’m sure we have all read […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #20

    After a disappointing issue #18, I really felt that the last issue really kicked it up a bit as Mystique has pit the Uncanny X-Men against S.H.I.E.L.D. though there might be something else going on here as well as it doesn’t look like Mystique sent the sentinels after our mutant heroes. Now while I quite […]

    In ‘Amazing X-Men’ #5: ‘The Quest For Nightcrawler’ Part 5 we ended the book with Kurt Wagner (aka Nightcrawler) having finally returned to the land of the living. Well he may have had to give away his soul to allow that to happen but we know that he’ll always be on the side of angels. […]

    When DC relaunched its superhero lineup in the 50s with new heroes bearing the names of its Golden Age heroes, like The Flash, Green Lantern, The Atom and Hawkman, they determined that any earlier stories took place on a parallel world called Earth 2, where the heroes emerged during the Great Depression/World War II and […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Force’ #3

    While the last issue of ‘X-Force’ gave us a pure following of Cable (as well as the mysterious blowing himself up and being just fine trick), in this issue the focus is on everyone’s favorite assassin ninja highborn British omega level telepath Psylocke. I could probably also throw in that Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock is Captain […]

    Looks like a certain feline, female cat burglar, squeezed into a skin-tight black leather catsuit, who walks the line between hero and criminal and who shares an adversarial/romantic relationship with her mask wearing, rooftop-swinging heroic opponent is headed to the big screen.  (Er… no, the other one.)  Yep, the other cat woman, Felicia Hardy, the […]

    A couple years back Matthew Vaughn (‘X-Men: First Class‘,’Kick-Ass’) bought the film rights to Mark Millar’s ‘Superior‘ and not much has been publicly happening since that time. That is until now as 20th Century Fox has just picked up the rights to develop the big screen adaptation of the superhero with Vauhhn on board to […]
