Spider-Man Gets (A Little) More Serious In New Clips From ‘Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors’ [Video]

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 5.00.59 PM

Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man is kicking off a new season on Disney XD Sunday with a slightly modified title--it's now Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors--and, from the looks of these clips, a somewhat modified tone.

The two-part season opener, titled "The Avenging Spider-Man," will follow Spidey as he joins up with the Avengers to take on a whole bunch of villains including Loki, Doctor Octopus, Fin Fang Foom, and Attuma. Things go awry when Loki takes control of Spider-Man's body, and the whole affair simply seems less goofy than the show's previous efforts.

Angela_Asgards_Assasin_Hans_Variant-hed

Asgard already boasts an unlikely agent in the form of young trickster god Loki. Now it has an unlikely assassin as well, as Loki's sis from another exis(tence), Angela, gets her own solo title this November, Angela: Asgard's Assassin.

The new series by writers Kieron Gillen and Margeurite Bennett and artists Phil Jimenez and Stephanie Hans was announced at the Avengers NOW panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday -- the same panel where Al Ewing and Luke Ross's Captain America And The Mighty Avengers was unveiled.

Shoes of Prey: Comics Alliance Designs Superhero Footwear Based on Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman and More

Untitled-142

Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer's chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.

As a fan of both Shoes of Prey and comics, customer Mandy Kerr designed some heels and flats inspired by Batman, Iron Man, and more (seen in the grahguc below). Inspired by Kerr's excellent Robin-inspired oxfords, I utilized the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer to create a few of my own shoe designs, including flats and platformed wedges inspired by Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman, and more.

Rehabilitating the Devil in ‘Loki: Agent of Asgard’ #1 [Review]

Untitled-1

It wasn't so long ago when no-one gave a toot about Loki. He was the most generic of Marvel villains, a scowling horn-headed heel who was evil for the sake of being evil. Marvel even turned him into a woman for a while in a desperate bid to give him a new dimension.

He's come a long way since. The old Loki would have been a terrible choice for a solo title, but in 2014 he's an obvious candidate -- a rising rockstar character with a passionate fanbase who flood the convention floors with cosplay of all his incarnations. Loki: Agent of Asgard is a book whose time has come.

MINOR SPOILERS follow.

Here’s Tom Hiddleston Cosplaying As Captain America In An Unused ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Scene [Video]

If Tumblr was a person, they'd be flipping their lid right now.

If you caught Thor: The Dark World in theaters a few months back, you know there's a scene in which Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, briefly transforms into Chris Evans' Captain America. It's a funny scene.

For filmmaking purposes we're not entirely privy to, other than maybe Hiddleston just wanted to wear a Captain America costume, the scene was originally shot with Loki's actor rather than Steve Rogers'.  So get ready, Tumblr. You're about to see some magic.

Hot Toys

Good news for Tom Hiddleston fans: Hot Toys has announced a 1/6 scale collectible figure of Loki from Thor: The Dark World in all its Hiddleston-y glory. As usual, the likeness and clothing looks spot-on -- like it was 3D printed by Dwarven blacksmiths (that's how they do it on movie Asgard, right?). This is the second version of the character from Hot Toys following a version from The Avengers movie, which has long since been in short supply or outright sold out.

Sexy Loki, Queer Tricksters, And The Problem With LGBT Villains [Opinion]

Loki Agent of Asgard feature

Good news; Marvel is launching a new ongoing series with an LGBT lead character. Loki: Agent of Asgard debuts in February from the creative team of writer Al Ewing and artist Lee Garbett, and Ewing confirmed via Tumblr that the lead character will not only be portrayed as bisexual --but be able to change gender. Bad news; Loki is not exactly a good guy. He's a trickster, a manipulator, a supervillain. He's also the second bisexual male to get his own ongoing book at Marvel, and here's the problem; the other one was Daken, son of Wolverine, and he was also a trickster, a manipulator and a supervillain.

‘Thor: The Dark World’ Is A Good Time At The Movies (Most Of The Time) [Review]

Thor 2

If you boiled down Marvel's movies to a basic formula, the first Thor film would be a perfect example of it. It's got some decent superhero action, a lot of shoehorned-in S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff, and one huge feather in its cap: A sense of humor about itself and its characters.

Luckily, the new sequel, Thor: The Dark World, is like its predecessor in that it's not afraid to include some levity. As long as that keeps up, it's a jaunty, enjoyable flick. It's only when the movie gets capital-s Serious -- and luckily that's not too often -- that it gets into some trouble.
