Diamond Select Toys Announces ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Minimates

X-Men Days of Future Past Minimates main

Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum had a LOT of characters to choose from when putting together their X-Men: Days of Future Past Minimates line, but it seems the toymakers were able to narrow down their wave to just eight Merry Mutants from two time periods. Due out this summer are two packs pairing Future Professor X with Past Magneto, Future Magneto with Past Mystique, Future Wolverine with Future Storm, and Past Logan with Past Charles Xavier.

Lady She-Woman: Female Superhero Codenames and Identity

Untitled-2

 

Monica Rambeau is on her fourth superhero codename. In the pages of Mighty Avengers she's Spectrum, having previously gone by Captain Marvel, Photon and Pulsar. The Captain Marvel identity now belongs to Carol Danvers, also on her fourth codename after Ms. Marvel, Binary and Warbird. Her first codename now belongs to Kamala Khan, the fourth Ms. Marvel after Danvers, Sharon Ventura and Karla Sofen.

But Carol is actually the third woman (and seventh character) to call herself Captain Marvel in the Marvel Universe. The second woman was Phyla-Vell, who was the fourth Captain Marvel after she was the second Quasar, before she was the first Martyr, before she saved herself the trouble of another codename by dying. Oh, those women! They never know who they are!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Recap, Episode 19: ‘The Only Light in the Darkness’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-1211111

On tonight's Agents of SHIELD, Phil Coulson utters the line, "HYDRA just released the entire population of the Fridge into the wild". If you think this is going to be an hour of Baron Strucker in a forest weepily shooing away a recalcitrant pack of bacon like John Lithgow chasing off a bigfoot, you're going to be disappointed.

But if you're looking for underwhelming spy drama dancing around the edges of a hugely popular nerd film franchise, boy, do we have a show for you! Spoilers for Agents of SHIELD and Captain America: The Winter Soldier follow. Hail Harry and the Hendersons.

MEGO Spider-Man Is Reborn In Diamond Select Toys’ Limited Edition Collector’s Set

Diamond Select Retro Spider-Man Collectors Set
Marvel/Diamond Select Toys

Whether a person is old enough to be nostalgic for it from the '70s or simply fell in love with it in the pages of Twisted ToyFare Theatre, for a lot of toy fans the 8" tall MEGO Spider-Man is more or less a must-have. Until now obtaining one has meant shelling out for pricey vintage toys of varying states of disrepair (mine, for example, has half its bare foot sticking out of its jumpsuit), but by the end of 2014 collectors will be able to score a versatile reissue as part of a three-in-one Limited Edition Collector's set from Diamond Select Toys and EMCE Toys.

Sexism Sense Tingling: Emma Stone Challenges Andrew Garfield For Dumb Remark At Spidey Press Conference [Video]

Sometimes good people say dumb things, and in those times it falls to other good people to call them out. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actors Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield seem like good people and a sweet couple -- they've been dating since 2011 -- but in a recent kids' Q&A to promote their upcoming movie, Garfield said a dumb, sexist thing. And co-star Stone coolly challenged him for it. You can watch the video right here.

New ‘Marvel Universe LIVE’ Footage Reveals More Characters, More Dirtbikes, More Skateboard Tricks [Video]

Marvel Universe Live "white model"

Listen: If someone had asked me what it was that I wanted out of a live show starring a bunch of Marvel Characters, I would've given all the standard answers like big fights and special effects, but I would've also specifically requested that they find a way to throw in dirtbikes and skateboard tricks. I mean, those are my favorite things, but I would know, even as I was asking, that it probably wouldn't happen.

And yet, here we are with a new video about the upcoming Marvel Universe LIVE! arena show, and there are dirtbikes and skateboards. Like, there is actually a halfpipe and a dude straight up doing a Boneless. And, I guess, there's also some cool special effects and a teaser that characters like Captain Marvel and Black Cat will be showing up, but really: dirtbikes and skateboards.

The X-Men Episode Guide 3×20: ‘Weapon X, Lies, And Video Tape’

X-Men Episode Guide 3x20: Weapon X, Lies, and Video Tape

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series. This week, Wolverine gets sad about revelations concerning his mysterious past, so it must be a Monday.

Funny ‘Avengers’ Manga Introduces Earth’s Mightiest Heroes To Japan

'Marvel Avengers' Manga by Fujiminosuke Yorozuya

On the off chance that you thought there was anywhere you could go to escape the presence of The Avengers now that they were the stars of a series of films that have taken in roughly 48 trillion dollars, don't fret: They are everywhere. Or, to be slightly more accurate, they're now in Japan, thanks to a series of comics designed to introduce Japanese children to Marvel's team of superheroes.

Created by Fujiminosuke Yorozuya as part of an effort to promote Marvel and Toie's new Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime, Marvel Avengers ran as a twelve-page one-shot in Monthly Korokoro Comic for kids, introducing Captain America, the Wasp, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Spider-Man to younger readers in a lighthearted comedy.
