ID4 Like Never Before With Marvel’s 1996 ‘Independence Day’ Comic

20th Century Fox/Marvel Comics
20th Century Fox/Marvel Comics

Nowadays movie spoilers are impressively oppressive on social media and other channels of communication, but as a kid in the '90s I only knew of three quick ways to intentionally spoil movies for myself. Drugstores had surprisingly plot-filled movie tie-in coloring books, bookstores had early movie novelizations and comic shops straddled the fence with one-shots or miniseries directly adapting a given blockbuster. By the summer of 1996, I was a self-spoiling sixth grade junkie, but for whatever reason my incredible desire to see Independence Day on opening night gave me pause when I finally found Marvel's ID4 adaptation. Before the movie came out I simply couldn't bring myself to read Will Smith welcoming me to Earth in a word balloon.

‘Mighty Avengers’: A Step Forward For A Publisher, A Change In Tone From An Editor

51b211aa4fc63

 

After days of teaser images from Marvel hinting at some kind of new series, this morning the publisher finally announced a relaunch of Mighty Avengers. Written by Al Ewing with art from Greg Land, the new series features a team led by Luke Cage, with Falcon, White Tiger, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Blue Marvel, Monica Rambeau (now named Spectrum), a new Ronin, and the new Power Man as members. Notably, the team is comprised mostly of heroes who are people of color and/or women.

Mighty Avengers has been championed by Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, who in the past has gone on record as describing the idea of an Avengers team comprised of all or mostly black characters as being "contrived," but now says, "people who are interested in these characters and want to see heroes that reflect them have a genuine point."

oswalt-lede

Following Patton Oswalt's fully improvised filibuster/rant on Parks and Recreation -- in which he spent nearly eight minutes sharing his pitch for a Star Wars/Marvel film crossover in the next installment in the Star Wars film franchise -- the folks at Entertainment Weekly have created a mash-up poster of all of his suggestions. All of this, of course, means we are now one step closer to this film being made. I mean, Disney once made a movie based on a theme park ride, so really anything can happen.

At 2PM Eastern on Sunday, March 10, Marvel announced at the South by Southwest Interactive conference -- among a bunch of interesting new announcements regarding the intersections between digital media and comics -- that they were promoting the digital comics medium, and their own books, by offering over 700 first issues for free through the wildly popular and borderline monopolistic Comixology cloud-based platform.
