Well, another year and another San Diego Comic Con has come and gone. With it brought a deluge of announcements on new projects, movies, tv shows, video games, and comic books. Some of the announcements were pretty obvious, and others caught me by surprise. Here, in no particular order, are the things that I was excited to hear about.Read More
In those good old days they actually fought bad guys, and had adventures, and smiled every once in a while. They even spent time playing the occasional softball game. They don’t have time for softball now, what with all the mass genocide and eviscerating one another with scythes and claws.
That’s why I am so crazy about AMAZING X-MEN #2.Read More
Marvel just released the second volume of Thor: God Of Thunder and as an overall story I was blown away. The two volumes are Thor God Of Thunder Vol 1 – The God Butcher and Thor God Of Thunder Vol 2 – Godbomb. An eleven issue story arc by Jason Aaron that centers on a being that slays gods from every world he encounters in order to rid the world of religion and its empty promises. Along the way Thor from three different periods in time (young Thor, current Thor and all-father Thor) are drawn into the conflict culminating in a battle royale with all three distinct Thors doing what they do to save the universe.Read More
Avengers vs. X-Men, the high-octane superhero romp featuring the X-Men and the Avengers continued last week with its tenth issue. The Hope centric plot plodded onward, bringing the expansive mini-series ever closer to its conclusion.Read More
In the fifth installment of Avengers vs. X-Men, the highly anticipated mini-series featuring Marvel’s mutants and resident team of Avengers, the pace definitively picks up as tensions come to a head between the two teams vying for their personal stakes in Hope’s destiny. However, despite an epic-scoped story, the collective of Marvel architects fail to capitalize on the story’s potential with a lackluster fifth outing which explodes the X-Men mythos with a barrage of head scratching developments.Read More
Similarly to film, summers tend to lend themselves to huge blockbuster story lines in comics. With seven years of planning behind it, Marvel’s 2012 foray pits the Avengers against the X-Men. The Hope-centric plot brings together the world’s greatest heroes and places them on opposing sides; one fights to save the world, the other to preserve its very existence.Read More
Since her birth in the Alaskan cold in the 2007 X-Men crossover Messiah Complex, Hope Summers has been the central figure in all mutant related stories. From her role in the latest Cable series which lead to her return to the present during Second Coming, Hope has been an integral player in Marvel’s plans for the X-books, destined to either save the mutant race from extinction or to destroy the world. That wasn’t even the beginning of the complete story mind you, as the planning for this crossover stretches as far back as the 2005 mini-series House of M which resulted in the mutant gene being wiped out by the Scarlet Witch.Read More
