Cable And The ’90s X-Men Get The Full Funko Treatment


It's a good time to be an X-Men fan. It's seemed recently like Marvel's mutants were getting the short end of the merchandizing stick, in favor of a focus on the Marvel Studios movies star Avengers and attempts to make the Inhumans happen.

But now, with the upbeat ResurrXion on the horizon, that seems to be changing, and one step in that change is the introduction of a selection of classic X-Men character to Funko's line of Marvel collectibles.

Fantastic Five: Best Face Turns in Comics

face turn 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.

This week we're counting down the top five face turns in comics, which doesn't mean times when someone turned their head to face another direction. It turns out it is some wrestling business where a bad guy turns good; that's what we're looking at. A surprising number of villains have become popular enough that fans want to see them as headliners, fighting crime in their own formerly villainous ways. This list takes a look at those whose changes have stuck the longest, have had the greatest influence, or who just generally feature in the best stories.

The Replacements: Jean Grey And The Legacy Of The Phoenix [Mutant Week]


Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved roll can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

This week, in honor of Mutant Week, we’re looking at the X-Men’s most storied legacy position. That’s right, we’re looking at the women, men, and clones who have at one time or another called themselves Phoenix.

100 X-Men: How Do Polaris, Emma Frost, The M Twins, Boom-Boom and Professor X Rank As Great X-Men?


Who are the greatest ever X-Men? Over the coming weeks, we’re going to try to answer that question, selecting five X-Men at a time from across the franchise’s long history, and pairing up your votes with the opinions of our own panel of highly opinionated X-Men fans. Your scores will be added to ours to determine the top 100 X-Men.

This week our randomizer has thrown out two telepathic headmasters of the Westchester school; one an actual ex-villain, and the other just generally kind of awful. Plus, one of Magneto's kids, two very confusing twins, and a surprise bid for one of the more unlikely high-scoring X-Men characters we've seen thus far. But that's before we get to your votes!

The Question: Which Series Should Marvel Launch Next?


For today’s question, we asked our writers; Which comics should Marvel Comics launch after Secret Wars? Marvel has been unveiling its new line-up over the past few days, with the full reveal coming on Wednesday 1 July, and what the publisher has announced thus far has shown plenty of promise, including a more diverse Avengers team and a new central role for Miles Morales in the Marvel Universe. But there's always room for more. More diversity, more originality, more weirdness.

Thumbnail: Emma Frost’s Wardrobe is Malfunctioning


Emma Frost is stylish. Allegedly. I mean, that’s what I’ve been told, over and over again, by the dudes who write and draw her. She’s a scion of the Boston brahmins! She attends the swankest parties, given by the crustiest of the upper crust! She loves to feel sexy — in ways that just happen to coincide with the most thuddingly obvious fanboy desires! So classy! So urbane! Truly, what modern woman doesn’t consider what appears to be a $29.99 plastic corset from a strip mall sex shop the height of empowered glamour?

Emma Frost has a wardrobe problem.

Adi Granov’s Emma Frost Statue Knows What You’re Thinking, So Behave


While it was a tad controversial when Emma Frost got her new black costume in Uncanny X-Men, she's completely owned the look, as she has with all of her costumes through the years. As one of the most powerful telepaths in the Marvel Universe, her confidence knows no bounds. That attitude is captured perfectly in the new statue from Kotobukiya.

As part of the planned Uncanny X-Men line, which is designed by Adi Granov, the Emma Frost statue realizes the teacher's full potential in 3D form. The line follows a similarly-styled series based on Granov's take on the Avengers from Marvel Now. A complete team including Cyclops (due in October), Magik, Wolverine, Magneto, Beast and Rogue is planned, but so far only the mutant power couple has been shown beyond concept art.
