    DC Comics’ newest animated feature ‘Son of Batman’ hits store shelves on May 6th and is already generating a lot of positive buzz among those lucky enough to have seen it early.  The story is based on Grant Morrison’s ‘Batman Inc.’ run, which revealed that Bruce Wayne had fathered a child with his enemy Talia […]

    The Mighty Marvel Amalgamate have announced a new One-Shot featuring that rascally rodent, “Rocket Raccoon” and his lumbering cohort, the colossal conifer Groot! Former “Nova” artist Andrea Di Vito will be penciling this comic while Will Corono Pilgrim provides the writing. The one-shot will be titled “Guardians of the Galaxy: Galaxy’s Most Wanted” and will be for sale […]

    Bruce Banner cannot catch a break! After taking life into his own hands and deciding to join forces with S.H.I.E.L.D. to develop new technology while acting as an asset in the field and that while Hulk breaks what Banner makes in ‘Indestructible Hulk’, the series recently came to an end with the scientist getting shot in […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘What If? Age of Ultron’ #3

    Posted Sunday, April 20th, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -4
    by

    Well, it’s safe to say that I’m pretty disappointed in ‘What If? Age of Ultron’. Instead of offering alternate versions of the largely disappointing Marvel crossover, we’ve just been getting stories about what would happen if certain Avengers had died at random points in history. For instance, in the last issue, we learned what would […]

  • Infographic Reveals ‘The Many Masks of Spider-Man’

    Usually when you picture Spider-Man and, more specifically his costume, you picture something basically the same as this image, rendered by the legendary John Romita Sr.  Originally designed by Steve Ditko, Spidey’s uniform is one of the most unique in all of comics.  For one thing, his face is completely concealed, cutting out any chances […]

    The newly recrafted Cyborg convinces a now youthful Will Magnus to revive his creations The Metal Men in an attempt to free the Justice League, who are trapped within the Firestorm Matrix.  Cyborg then goads his former robotic half, now serving as Grid for the Crime Syndicate into leaving the League’s old Secret Sanctuary and […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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. […]
