BestComics_0520

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

Fox is Making a ‘New Mutants’ Movie: Which Characters Do You Want to See? [Poll]

newmutants

Fox has announced a potential new direction for its enduring X-Men movie franchise, and it's one that should please a lot of comics fans. The studio has signed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone to co-write and direct New Mutants, starring a junior team of mutant heroes. Boone will co-write the film with Knate Gwaltney, and X-Men movie stalwarts Simon Kinberg and Laura Shuler-Donner will produce.

The movie will surely draw heavily on the comics, but its cast won't necessarily be limited to characters that served in the original New Mutants line-up, or even in later versions of the team. There are decades of Westchester student mutants to choose from. In order to make the filmmakers' choices a little easier, we want you to pick the characters you'd most like to see on screen.

avengers-feat

Who is the greatest Avenger of all time? You probably have your personal favorites. You probably also have a pretty good idea who the popular favorites might be. We wanted to know for sure, so to mark the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron we conducted a giant-size poll to give you the chance to choose between more than 100 Avengers members, and rank them from least to best. Now the results are in. And we think there are a few surprises.

Greatest Best Favorite Avenger Final

thor-vs-cap

We finally stand at the cusp of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and after a month of asking you to vote in our favorite, best, greatest Avengers poll, it all comes down to this. These are the final two in the contest to determine which of over 100 Avengers members deserves bragging rights as the people's true champion. Is it Stingray? Or is it Moondragon?

Actually, despite our unsubtle lobbying for those two, you, the people, went in another direction. Captain America always seemed likely to make the final, and he's still surely the favorite. Most of us probably expected him to go toe-to-toe with Iron Man in a democratic remake of Civil War. But the semi-final between Thor and Iron Man went down to the wire, with one hero maintaining a hair's breadth lead over the other in the final hours, and now we can officially confirm that Iron Man... is out of the competition.
