Marvel's upcoming event Monsters Unleashed looks set to live up to its name as the publisher has announced it will be spinning out of the main miniseries and into specially branded one-shots that are all numbered #1.MU. Among the one-shots include special issues of Spider-Man/Deadpool and Avengers allowing creators to really run wild with some of the Marvel's most well-known franchises.
In Avengers #1.1, by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson, a new team of Avengers must figure out how to live up to their predecessors. But this is a flashback story, and the mostly green new team consists of Captain America, Hawkeye, the Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver.
Joss Whedon is open about his politics, never one to shy away from letting us all know whom he supports for this upcoming election. Just last week, he and a few of his Avenger pals posted a PSA to launch his new organization Save the Day, urging Americans to make sure they’re registered to vote. On Friday, Whedon also hosted a Facebook Live chat to promote Save the Day, in which he answered some fan questions, including which of the Avengers he’d pick to run the country.
This Sunday's episode of Marvel's Avengers: Ultron Revolution introduces the Black Panther to the show for the first time, and ComicsAlliance has an exclusive clip showing the Wakandan superhero and the rest of the team in battle with Panther nemesis Ulysses Klaue!
When Marvel's new U.S.Avengers, by Al Ewing, and Paco Medina, launches in January, the first issue is going to have 52 variant covers by Rod Reis, depicting an Avenger for each American State --- as well as Puerto Rico and Canada. It's unclear (if unlikely) whether the characters will have any connection to those states in the narrative, but since there will be 52 of them, most probably won't even be in the book.
The Avengers has seen street-level bounty hunters, world leaders, robots, spies, and even cosmic entities grace its roster through the years. So to celebrate the diversity of the Avengers, we’ve assembled a mighty cosplay gallery of its amazing alumni.
These cosplayers are as different in their portrayals as the characters are themselves, and each brings their own fantastic interpretations to their favorite heroes. From the originals to the latest, from the regulars to the oddities, each hero here is a reminder ofn the Marvel Universe --- and cosplay --- at its best.
Born on this day in 1967, Brian Michael Bendis is one of the most important and influential figures in western comics in the 21st century. From indie comics wunderkind to top dog at Marvel Comics, Bendis’ career has been expansive and occasionally revolutionary, so today we're taking a moment to celebrate his achievements.
A hero is defined by their villains, and the world of superhero comic books is filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues’ Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of your favorite superheroes, and we need your help to do it!
You voted to see who The Avengers‘ ultimate arch-enemy was, and we’ve tabulated the results and assembled a video counting down the definitive top 10. Did your favorite make this list? There’s only one way to find out!
The general consensus among most Marvel fans is that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is the worst part of the first Avengers movie. It’s not that Renner is particularly bad in the role, per se — he just doesn’t have anything to do, and you needn’t look any further than Hawkeye’s great arc in Age of Ultron for proof of how terribly underutilized he was in that first Avengers outing. As it turns out, Renner himself is painfully aware of this fact — so much so that he went to great lengths to try and get Hawkeye killed off in The Avengers.
Over the weekend, I saw Ghostbusters. I loved it, but I’m not here to review it. Obviously one of the things that everyone has talked about is the female cast. There’s been a lot of backlash against it, and a lot of people defending the choice, and a plenty saying it shouldn’t matter. But honestly, I think it does matter, and I’m all in favor of it. In fact, I want to see more women-dominated reboots of previously male-dominated properties.
Here’s the thing: We need more movies with woman-led casts, and that makes a movie like this even more exciting, but there’s more to it than that. Changing up the cast automatically gives the movie a freshness it wouldn’t have had with men.
