We recently learned what fans had already suspected, that the character Pom Klementieff is playing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is none other than Mantis, a character who has been featured prominently in the Guardians comics. But who is Mantis? We still don't know much about what she'll be like in the movie, but she's existed in comics for 43 years, so we know that version of her pretty well. And looking back at her history may give us some insight about what to expect from this new version of the character.

It feels like Comic-Con has already begun, what with all the new sneak peeks at upcoming movies like Rogue One and The Dark Tower. But how about a fresh look at a new superhero film? Four images from Wonder Woman have debuted online, and as you can see, it looks like Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince is looking for a fight.
However you first came to it, Ghostbusters was a classic of the 1980s. Its special blend of action and comedy, sci fi and the supernatural, made it unlike anything else at the time, and nothing that tried to imitate it really came close (not even Ghostbusters II).
In celebration of the new Ghostbusters and the classic film that inspired it, here's some great fan art of characters and scenes from both movies. A lot Egon Spengler, a lot of Jillian Holtzmann, some Slimer, even a Gozer or two. This is the gallery to scroll through while you're deciding who you're going to call.
The Guardians are back. And they brought backup. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has shared an amazing piece of concept art that introduces new team member Mantis.
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week I'm turning my attention to one of Marvel's most interesting current team books, The Ultimates, by Al Ewing and Kenneth Rocafort.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
This week we’re taking a look at the five baddest “Darths” from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
If you’ve been to the supermarket or the toy store lately you’ve seen a lot of Ghostbusters tie-in merchandise. Action figures, beverages, snack cakes, stuffed dolls; you name it, they’re making it to promote the new Ghostbusters movie opening in theaters this Friday.
Welcome to Give ‘Em Elle, a weekly column that hopes to bridge the gap between old school comics fandom and the progressive edge of comics culture. This week, like a lot of us, I’m thinking about spoilers and how they related to comics. I don’t have any big answers, or any axes to grind, but as usual I do have some thoughts.
Kudos to the Warner Bros. marketing department for keeping the main villain of Suicide Squad secret for so long, and although that may change in the next month as David Ayer’s film begins screening for critics, for now it remains an intriguing mystery. That mystery deepens in a new interview with a couple of the film’s producers, who reveal that the enigmatic “adversary” isn’t the only foe the Squad will have to contend with next month.
Any apprehension about another reboot of the Spider-Man franchise went out the door when Tom Holland made his web-slinging debut in Captain America: Civil War. With Marvel calling the creative shots on Spider-Man: Homecoming (and a cast that gets better every week), our faith in Spidey has been officially renewed. And Sony is feeling pretty confident, too, as executive Tom Rothman recently spoke about the upcoming film, offering an explanation for the Homecoming title and declaring Holland the best Spider-Man yet.
