CM Punk to Co-write New Ongoing ‘Drax’ Series

drax1-mcguinness-feat

If either of them ever come back to the squared circle any time soon, former WWE superstars CM Punk (a.k.a. Phil Brooks) and Dave Bautista may have to tussle over ownership of Drax the Destroyer.

Marvel announced at C2E2 in Punk's hometown of Chicago this weekend that he is the co-writer of a new Drax ongoing series set to debut late this year. (Bautista played the character in last summer's Guardians of the Galaxy movie.) The publisher unveiled an Ed McGuinness-drawn cover to the first issue, but hasn't yet named the artist for the series, nor Punk's co-writer.

Greatest Best Favorite Avenger Ever: Round Two, Group III

av-group2-feat

Avengers: Age of Ultron is just a week away, so we're into the third and final day of the second round of our poll to determine the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time. We've taken the top contenders from the previous rounds and broken them up into new voting groups, and you're not just voting for the winner; you're helping us see how the rest of the team stack up against each other. That means you can still vote tactically if you think Captain America is going to sweep this thing but you'd still like to express a preference between Scott Land and Bobbi Morse --- and you can come back and express that preference every hour!

The round two groups were assigned blind, except that we broke up the top seeds to keep it interesting. For this last set that means a scientist showdown between Dr Banner and Dr McCoy, a face-off between beloved second-stringer little bros Havok and Hawkeye, and a titanic tussle between two major fan favorites, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man. Remember, we're not asking who'd win in a fight. Pick your favorites, and help us determine the greatest Avenger of all time!

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ PR: Now with Slut-Shaming and Rape Jokes!

Marvel
Marvel

By now, it's the "slut" heard 'round the geek world: during their press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron, actors Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans referred to Black Widow respectively as a "slut" and a "whore." They've since apologized - well, Evans apologized, Renner offered something else. Plus, a new clip from the movie reveals a rape joke - something proud feminist Joss Whedon should know better than doing. But is the fuss about these things worthwhile?

Well, yes. Words have meaning. And the words chosen by Renner, Evans, and Whedon in these situations happen to be words that demean women. When Black Widow is routinely left off of Age of Ultron merchandise, the fact that major players in the movie chose these words is extra uncomfortable.
