'X-Men: Apocalypse' continues to cast some of your favorite mutants to join the upcoming superhero sequel, with director Bryan Singer revealing that fan favorite Psylocke will be played by Olivia Munn.
I grew up in the '90s, so no matter what I do with the rest of my life, I will always have a certain amount of nostalgic affection for X-Force. The hyperviolent, gun-toting mutant strike force that was originally created by Rob Liefeld back in 1991 has gone through a lot of different lineups and changes over the years, but one thing they've always had in common is that they specialize in massive amounts of destruction.
But just how is that destruction carried out? Graphic designer Rogan Josh has the answer in a new poster that he made where the various rosters are broken down to show just what they can accomplish, whether it's through claws, blades, claw-blades, or just good old fashioned guns.
Marvel has announced a new X-Force series, set to launch in February, as part of the publisher's All-New Marvel Now initiative. Despite the prominent presence of Cable, the new X-Force won't be "a steroidal macho-fest," says writer Si Spurrier, also of X-Men Legacy.
"It's a slick, nasty, oh-so-grim beast that'll cut your throat and blow up your headquarters before you even know it's there," he told USA Today.
The Deadpool video game is set to arrive on June 25 from Activision and High Moon Studios, bringing not only the Merc With a Mouth to current generation consoles, but also an increasingly expansive cast of Marvel regulars - especially X-Men stars. Fans have already gotten a decent look at the game's version of Cable, Domino and Death, and now a few ne
This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female is unusual for a series that isn't defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it's an all-star line-up. These are first draft X-Men, and the book could easily have added more top picks -- Dazzler, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Magik, Mystique -- and still been all-female.
It's hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it's especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with "strong female characters."
The X-Men have been through some pretty rough stuff. That's actually kind of their deal; "going through rough stuff" is the default setting for those mutants, and the only time they're not going through rough stuff is when they've either just finished going through something terrible or are just about to go through something terrible, two states that tend to coexist on two or three pages about twice a year.
Right now, though, the X-Men h
Marvel Comics has announced a new X-Men title launching in April that spotlights the female members of the team. Yes, finally, a book dedicated to some of the many X-Women who have won fan hearts for years! The X-Women who have dominated the franchise since the Chris Claremont days! Obviously, then, this book celebrating X-Women is called X-Men.The gender-confused name doesn't bother w
If you've been following Bryan Lee O'Malley's Twitter and Tumblr feeds, you are no doubt aware that the Scott Pilgrim creator has been mainlining a lot of vintage X-Men comics as of late, compelling him to create this reinterpretation of the beautiful and deadly and occasionally Japanese mutant ninja known as Psylocke. O'Malley's take on the character is notably thongless but does adapt the "thigh rings" element of her famously skimpy costume as modern leggings, rounded out with some fashionably chunky platform wedges.

There are certain phrases that have a special resonance for a Marvel kid like me. "Pocket dimension." "Lift (press)." "Marital status: unrevealed." This is the language of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, and I used to pore over the pages of those little encyclopedias like I thought there was an exam coming. (I woul
