Even if you aren’t familiar with his comic book counterpart, the name of the villainous Apocalypse definitely conjures up ideas of complete global annihilation, a bad guy who could very well usher in the End Times. And that’s the mega-conflict the X-Men are facing into in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which sees the team battling the most epic threat yet. Oscar Isaac is set to play the role of the big bad Apocalypse, and although he can’t say too much, he is promising some pretty big things.

‘Fantastic Four’ Star Michael B. Jordan’s Awesome Response to Fans Who Were Angry About His Casting

When it was first announced that director Josh Trank had cast Michael B. Jordan in the role of the traditionally-white Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four, there was a bit of (sadly predictable) fan backlash. It was the same sort of ignorant, unreasonable outcry we’ve endured anytime someone suggests we have a Spider-Man who isn’t white (even though we have one in the comics). Jordan has mostly kept quiet about the senseless anger regarding his casting, but the actor has finally delivered a thoughtful response.

It’s Brothers Versus Badger in the Wonderful World of ‘Capture Creatures’ #4 [Preview]

CaptureCreatures_feat

'Cute' is sometimes an under-valued concept. 'Adorable' as a word can seem dismissive and diminishing. But there are times when these are not only the right words to use, but perhaps the highest compliments one could offer, because cute and adorable can be great. In the case of Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson's Boom Studios series Capture Creatures, "cute" and "adorable" are words that shine with a clear and exalting purpose; for this series is cute, and it is adorable, and it is great! If you don't believe me, check out this exclusive preview to issue #4, on sale next week.

DC And Warner Bros. Launch Kid-Friendly Sites With Free ‘Scooby-Doo,’ ‘Looney Tunes’ and ‘Justice League’ Comics

Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade

Over the past few years, I've often wondered why comic book publishers weren't taking advantage of the opportunities that we've seen through the growth of webcomics, hooking new readers with free content and then using that to drive them towards the established market. Today, though, it looks like that's exactly what they're doing.

Along with its parent company, Warner Bros., DC Comics is part of a relaunch of three kid-friendly sites, LooneyTunes.com, ScoobyDoo.com and DCKids.com. In addition to videos and games, they're putting up free full-length stories for kids --- including great all ages comics like Eric Jones and Landry Walker's Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade, and the best Looney Tunes comic ever.

Here’s A Fun Understatement: The Dark Judges Are Up To No Good Again In ‘Judge Dredd: Dark Justice’

Judge Dredd: Dark Justice

Mega City One has been through an awful lot over the past few years. Not only is there the usual crime that comes with being a fascist future state, but the city's also had to deal with stuff like the Chaos Plague, space lasers, all sorts of other problems. It's got so bad, in fact, that the city's 40,000 wealthiest citizens have got together to buy a spaceship and just get the heck out of Earth before something else happens.

That's where John Wagner and Greg Staples' Judge Dredd: Dark Justice picks up, with the launch of the Mayflower into deep space. Oh, and also the Dark Judges, the genocidal, immortal, inter-dimensional entities who see life itself as a crime, and punish it with mass murder are also coming back. So, you know, I'll let you guess how well that's gonna work out for 'em.

Spacewomen: Which Women Should Join the Cast of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2′?

gotg-women-feat

Marvel and director James Gunn have already started looking at actors for the sequel to last year's surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy, due for release in May 2017. It may be too soon to expect any immediate announcements, but the coming months should give us a better idea which new characters will be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the second installment.

At least one more member is likely to join the team, and Gunn has said he hopes to have "at least two women in the next iteration of the Guardians." That would be a welcome change for a team with just one woman right now, Gamora, and four characters that present as male --- but which women from Marvel's roster of cosmic characters would fans like to see join the team? Here's your chance to weigh in!
