Girls need role models. This is an old canard, though it’s tempting to see its genesis in 1990s girl power — it’s just that it hasn’t always meant warmed-over Gloria Steinem quotes and the Spice Girls. June Cleaver was a Good Role Model for Girls. The Virgin Mary is a Good Role Model for Girls. Their ranks have swelled with Buffys, Lara Crofts, and Wonder Women, but they stand, toned of arm and glossed of lip, beneath the same banner.
In response to a dearth of women, mainstream comics now turns to the Good Role Model for Girls as a panacea. Spider-Gwen! Spider Woman! Batgirl! Hawkeye! Black Widow! All the women in X-Men! She-Hulk! Even Suzie in Sex Criminals! And oh, how the little girl marooned in 90s comic dungeons within me sang! It’s a new age, I thought; a turning point. The first issues fly by, and I purchase every single one.
Today's poll is all about sex. Some superheroes are known for their provocatively sexy costumes, and because sex in superhero costumes isn't always terribly sophisticated, that often just means costumes that are revealing and/or skintight. But just because a costume is sexy doesn't mean it can't also be stylish. Here are five costumes and characters known for their eye-candy appeal.
From Wally West and Linda Park, to Harley Quinn and Mistah J, we're asking you to vote on comics' most famous couples so we can determine the best (and worst) romantic partnerships that comics have to offer. If you think the couple is meant to be, vote 'True Love.' If you think they've got unstable chemistry and can only end badly, vote 'Bad Romance.'
In today's polls, we trace a course from one storm to another through several Marvel characters. Some of these relationships led to big weddings, some led to bigger breakups, some were rebounds and some were affairs (or could be affairs). But are they true love, or a bad romance?
Marvel is ending the universe, and the publisher seems very excited about it, having announced not only an epic mush of worlds in this year's Secret Wars event, but also a string of tie-ins under umbrella titles like Battleword, Warzones, and Last Days. It's this final one that particularly interests us, because everyone knows what happens when you know the world is going to end. You hook up. Right? Of course you do.
So on the assumption that each Last Days series will feature a character or characters looking for one more canoodle before the curtain drops forever, we're offering our readers a chance to weigh in on the love interests you think Marvel's Last Days protagonists should get together with, starting with the master of magnetism, the mutant in magenta, the man sometimes named Magnus (or Max, or Erik, or Gandalf); Magneto.
Muti-award-winning cartoonist of Liberty Meadows and the creative force behind the first issues of Marvel's Savage Wolverine series, Frank Cho has teased some sort of new X-Men project with this typically excellent and characteristically alluring portrait of Emma Frost. Cho described the image as being a detail from a wraparound cover that he's created for his yet-to-be-announced follow up to Savage Wolverine, and that the first script just arrived this week.
Though Hasbro won't be releasing a specific action figure line in honor of The Wolverine movie this summer, the toymaker will still be paying a ton of toy attention to the best-he-is-at-what-he-does hero according to its Toy Fair 2013 press images. On top of a addition to a 12" "Titan Hero" figure, a "Slash Claw" 10" figure and role-play masks and claws (n
Last week Gazillion Entertainment revealed its first gameplay trailer for the upcoming free-to-play Marvel Heroes MMOhelmed by David Brevik (Diablo) and Marvel scribe Brian Michael Bendis, showing off both character combat and the game's cinematic stylings. That doesn
It seems like lately superhero-inspired clothing for women has been put in a pretty polarizing position. Fans can either pick up affordable logo tees and the like, or splurge for overpriced fashionista fare. No o
Quick on the heels of last month's news that "X-Men: First Class" -- a prequel to the existing X-Men film trilogy based on the Marvel Comics superheroes -- would be set in the 1960s comes a series of leaked production photos depicting January Jones as Emma Frost, also known as the White Queen, with groovy period regalia in full effect!The '60s setting
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Emma Frost, the corseted former villainess turned X-Man, is a lady who thinks some naughty thoughts from time to time. And thanks to a sketch by "Scott Pilgrim" creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, we've gotten a glimpse into a one of those quiet moments of sexy self-reflection, as the mutant telepath sips a drink and contemplates her evening alone with a sly look and a bit of blushing.
