thor2_ytyk

Thor doesn’t go anywhere without his famous hammer Mjolnir. But did you know the Mjolnir seen in Thor: The Dark World is different than the ones in Thor and The Avengers? It’s 10 percent larger than the first Mjolnir, and it’s design incorporates elements from Thor’s new costume in The Dark World. That’s just one of the Asgardian facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

Hulk And Tigra Join ‘Avengers Academy’ As Story Update Finally Unlocks The Gamma Zone

AAFeatured

If you've stuck it out with Marvel's mobile game Avengers Academy, you've likely been waiting very patiently for the promised story update that would bring new content, characters and areas of the map. As of today, those dreams have become reality, as it's confirmed that players will soon get access to The Incredible Hulk and the Gamma Zone.

In an interview today on Marvel.com, Avengers Academy's Allen Warner reveals that the latest update will bring The Hulk and --- rather surprisingly --- Tigra to the game, as well as unlocking the Gamma Zone area of the map that has been off-limits since the game's launch. The addition of The Hulk is especially exciting for this particular reporter, as he is voiced by my hero and idol, the one and only John Cena.

The Replacements: Odinson And The Legacy Of Thor

Thors-Featured

Since the dawn of the Silver Age, legacy characters have been a staple of superhero fiction, and having a new character step into a well loved role can open up new opportunities for writers and artists to tell different kinds of stories. In The Replacements, we’ll look back at the notable and not-so-notable heroes and villains to assume some of the most iconic mantles in the superhero genre.

The Mighty Thor is a hero as old as time and a founding Avenger, but The Prince of Asgard is not the only person to bear that moniker. Over time there have been other heroes and villains who have attempted to claim the name of Thor, and not all of them were considered worthy.

The Mighty Thor Krakathooms Into Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Line

Marvel
Marvel

For the past seven years, Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line has been providing statues from the Marvel universe cast in Shunya Yamashita's vision. Yamashita's takes on the likes of Black Widow, Rogue, the Invisible Woman, She-Hulk and many more have been the driving force behind the line's success. Since the Bishoujo series focuses entirely on "beautiful girls," we've been absent some of the more notable names in the Marvel roster. We've been more than content with a company exclusively devoting a line to female characters, but not-so recent developments in Marvel comics had us clamoring for some of those new lady legacy heroes.

Finally, prayers to the All-Father have been answered. This winter, Thor joins the lineage of the Bishoujo line, and she strikes a commanding pose with her arrival.

Marvel really delivered the goods at Comic-Con last weekend, and while the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage got everyone in Hall H pretty pumped, nothing was as awesome as the short film Taika Waititi made for Thor: Ragnarok. Although that footage hasn’t made its way online (and probably won’t anytime soon), Waititi has shared a couple of pieces from the short, which shows us what Thor was up to while the Avengers were off fighting in their big Civil War.

Planet-Hulk-Featured

Thor: Ragnarok is set to be one heck of a film based on the information revealed so far, with a killer cast including Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster. We've already heard from Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo that the film is going to be a cosmic buddy movie between Thor and The Hulk, and today at San Diego Comic Con we received more information about what that might mean as Marvel unveiled a very familiar set of armor for the Jade Giant.

In a post on Twitter, Marvel's Agent M unveiled the Gladiator Hulk armor made famous in Greg Pak and Carlo Pagulayan's insta-classic "Planet Hulk" storyline. In the original story, The Illuminati (Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Black Bolt and Doctor Strange) decided to send The Hulk off to space where he could live out his days on an idyllic and uninhibited planet.
