It's been a long time since the Marvel Legends toy line has dabbled with the likes of the X-Men. There have been a few lines here and there, but the frequency of Avengers and Spider-Man series has drowned out the past efforts rather loudly. This most recent wave of figures bodes well for the future of X-Men at Hasbro though. The last time we saw the X-Men, it was a smaller set with a Build-a-Jubilee available only at Toys 'R Us. This wave is available everywhere, and it's huge.
I don't just mean there are a lot of figures --- there are eight in total --- I mean it's physically massive. That's thanks in part to the Build-a-Figure being Juggernaut, who is among the biggest BAFs offered in the line. Still, eight figures is about as big as a collections in the Marvel Legends line get, but it's hard to be disappointed when the roster is as strong as this one.
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.
He's the best there is at what he does, and even though Wolverine fancies himself quite a loner, he's also pretty great at doing team-ups with just about everyone under the sun.
Who are the greatest X-Men of all time? Over the coming weeks, as we anticipate the coming of Apocalypse, we’re going to try to answer that question, pairing up your votes with the opinions of our own panel of highly opinionated X-Men fans.
Starting from a list of over 300 characters who served in a Marvel Universe X-Men team or have been strongly affiliated with the Xavier School, our panelists have whittled the selection down to just a hundred or so prime candidates. We now need to place that list in order to determine the 100 Greatest X-Men --- and to do that, we need your help.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron just around the corner, interest in these heroes has never been greater, so we’ve decided to pit all the official comic book Avengers against each other in a battle for your affections. Who is the greatest, best, favorite Avenger of all time? Only you can decide.
We’ve created voting groups that mix up different eras of Avengers membership. The biggest name in Group J is probably Wonder Man, so that gives you an idea where we are in this thing. A third Ant-Man, a second Power Man, and the one and only D-Man help round out the list. The top two or three from each round go through to the next, so vote tactically, but we're not sure there's an obvious favorite this time around!
Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.
This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade, starting with five costumes from the 1960s; the era of the Jean Grey mini dress and the Creeper's flowing mane. These costumes are products of their time, but are they dated, or are they classic?
For X-Men: Days of Future Past, everything old is new again. (And maybe vice-versa.) A set of character portraits -- mostly for characters we've seen, such as Professor X, Wolverine and Magneto, one for Bishop, who's making his movie debut -- hit the comics Internet this week. They offer up a glimpse of the new costumes the movie will feature, as well as a look at the new and old versions of Wolvie. The X-Men DoFP Tumblr has also uploaded some new images of Trask Industries logo and its new Sentinel model.
Uncanny Avengers #5 was mostly a strong issue, the best of the series so far, in part because it gave readers the clearest sense of the team's dynamic and purpose, and in part because the guest art from Olivier Coipel was exceptional...
We are once again on the cusp of a new year,and that means that it's time for the regular yearly round of societally mandated self-improvement, the New Year's Resolution. But while you and I might resolve to get out more, lose a little weight, or drop a few bad habits, our favorite superheroes have made mistakes over the past year that have been just a little bit bigger...
