Lego Humor Meets The Marvel Characters You Love In ‘Lego Marvel’s Avengers’

TT Games

While Marvel's had a tremendous amount of success at the box office over the last decade, the comic publisher has been relatively quiet on the video game front comparatively. There have been a few exceptions to the rule, but Marvel has been almost singularly focused on the mobile game arena.

Over the last three years however, TT Games has managed to release two Marvel games under the Lego banner to sate fans hungry for Marvel action on a console. Though TT Games has been delivering licensed Lego video game adventures for over a decade, Lego Marvel's Avengers feels as fun and fresh as it has in years. It also gives Marvel fans a new spin on stories and characters they've spent a great deal of time with since The Avengers hit theaters in 2012.

Spencer and Bagley Keep The Event Ball Rolling with ‘Avengers Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill’ [Preview]

pleasant_featured

On February 17th, the Avengers find themselves in small town with a big secret in Avengers Standoff: Welcome to Pleasant Hill #1, written by Captain America: Sam Wilson's Nick Spencer with art by All-New X-Men's Mark Bagley.

Beyond "little town with something big and weird going on" the press release reveals nothing about the plot except that it's meant to lead to other things. Likewise, there are only two preview pages, and they're just the Winter Soldier sneaking through a SHIELD facility and watching a recording of an explosion. But it seems safe to assume that this will be part of the road to Civil War II, because every story at Marvel is the road to the next story.

No ‘Slingers’ Revival: Marvel Hints At All-New Wasp And ‘Dead No More’ Event

marvelteasers-feat

Marvel released a bafflingly oblique teaser image on Tuesday, the words 'DEAD NO MORE' against a black background, prompting fans to speculate which of Marvel's heroes is next in line for a resurrection, even as they're debating which hero will die (for a while) in the pages of Civil War II.

Before any kind of consensus could be achieved, Marvel released a second teaser today, 'BEST BEWARE MY STING', against a black and yellow background. A quote from Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, the line and colors both suggest the character Wasp, aka Janet Van Dyne. But Janet already came back from the dead; surely the first teaser can't be about her? So what other theories do we have? Well... is it possible that Marvel is hinting at a relaunch of Slingers?

Fantastic Five: Best Marvel Wonder Women

wonder women

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.

They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and as some of our earlier episodes have shown, Marvel isn’t afraid to compliment their Distinguished Competition by homaging, or straight up copying, some of DC’s most popular characters. Since her introduction in 1942, Princess Diana, better known as Wonder Woman, has become without question the most well-known and influential superheroine in the world. We already showed you some of the best analogues Marvel made for the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, and now it’s time to round out DC’s Trinity with the Amazing Amazon!

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Will Feature a New Avengers Lineup

Avengers-Age-of-Ultron

The end of Avengers: Age of Ultron introduced a new lineup of Marvel’s A-game heroes, with Scarlet Witch, Falcon, War Machine and Vision joining the team. With all the new and upcoming heroes to be introduced in the MCU, it’s safe to assume that by the time Infinity War rolls around, that lineup will undergo a bit of a change once again, and according to directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo, that’s definitely the idea.

A ways back, Avengers director and ex-Marvel mainstay Joss Whedon seemed to cast shade at ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. over Coulson’s resurrection, despite he himself directing the pilot, noting that movies would consider the character dead. Now, Whedon clarifies his comments, denying he regrets keeping Clark Gregg in his badass role, even as Marvel TV tends to get the movies’ “leftovers.”

Fantastic Five: Worst Marvel Events

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.

Nobody’s perfect, and just because the House of Ideas has been responsible for some of the greatest spectacles in comic history doesn’t mean they haven’t had their fair share of awful moments as well. This week, we point our all seeing eye of judgment at five of the worst offenders.

TinyCo’s ‘Avengers Academy’ Student Body Assembles For Class Pictures

Since we didn't actually get to spend much time with the Avengers in their formative days, TinyCo's figured that's the perfect timeframe to place its upcoming game, Avengers Academy. Instead of being the underpowered teens they would have been in the real comic world, Avengers Academy takes the heroes and villains we all know today, powers and all, and drops them into the most dangerous adventure yet: high school.

With the constant bickering, backstabbing, odd romantic entanglements, power dynamic struggles and all the drama being a tightly knit group of friends entails, you'd think the Avengers were perpetually stuck in high school already. That's not the case, though you could argue being stuck in relatively the same five years of their lives over the last 50 years is equally as terrifying as being stuck in high school for eternity.

Fantastic Five: Most Underrated Avengers

avengers five

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.

Thanks to all those blockbuster movies, The Avengers are arguably the most well known superhero team in the world, but with every success story that makes a character like Iron Man a household name, there are those less well known and D-List heroes who are still waiting for their moment in the spotlight. Hopefully today we’ll succeed in shining a light on five deserving Avengers!
