Guardians And X-Men Clash In ‘Black Vortex'; Peggy Carter Returns In ‘Operation S.I.N.'; Next ‘Star Wars’ Comic Unveiled [NYCC]


Marvel is planning its first big cosmic event since the end of the Dan Abnett/Andy Lanning-penned Annihilation/War of Kings cycle that ran from 2006 to 2010. (Or last year's Infinity, if you count that, but that was all about Earth, so we don't.) Black Vortex will cross over between Guardians of the Galaxy, the space-bound All-New X-Men, Cyclops, Legendary Star-Lord, Nova, Captain Marvel, and more.

Marvel also announced Operation S.I.N., by Kathryn Immonen and Rich Ellis, which serves as both a prequel of sorts to the recent Original Sin event and a tie-in to Marvel's Agent Carter TV show; and Kanan: The Last Padawan, a five issue mini series also written by Greg Weisman and illustrated by Pepe Larraz, tying in to the Star Wars: Rebels animated series.

Sharlto Copley Is Christian Walker, Michelle Forbes Is Retro Girl In ‘Powers’ TV Show


Late last week it was announced that Eddie Izzard, Noah Taylor, and Olesya Rulin have joined the cast of Sony's Powers TV show as Wolfe, Johnny Royale, and Calista, respectively -- but that left two major roles unaccounted for in the adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's creator-owned superhero detective series.

Now we finally have names for those roles. Sharlto Copley will play the male lead, Detective Christian Walker, while Michelle Forbes will play Retro Girl, the hero whose murder triggers the first Powers storyline in the comics. (The story is called "Who Killed Retro Girl," so we're going to say that's not a spoiler.)

‘Powers’ TV Series Coming Exclusively To PlayStation

Powers comic 10 cover

After several attempts to get a TV show based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's comic series Powers off the ground at FX, Sony Pictures TV has announced it will launch the show on the PlayStation video game console.

There's no official, set date for when the series will start. It also isn't clear whether it will follow the Netflix model of all the season's episodes going up at once, or if the new series will at all resemble the pilot on which FX passed in 2012. The season will reportedly be 10 episodes.

Massive Artist Lineup For ‘All-New X-Men’ #25: Timm, Hipp, Young, Adams, Cho & More


Getting all the way to issue #25 without a relaunch is a legitimate accomplishment for a Marvel Comics series in 2014, so the publisher and writer Brian Michael Bendis are doing it up big for next month's All-New X-Men #25, with a more than formidable list of contributing artists...

All-New X-Men: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?


When Marvel announced the concept of All-New X-Men, we were sceptical. A comic book about the original teenage X-Men in the present-day Marvel Universe felt like a crazy idea for a miniseries, much less an ongoing. Yet Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen won us over; All-New X-Men is solid entertainment, earning a spot in ComicsAlliance's list of the Best Comic Books of 2013.

And yet, 15 months and 24 issues later, Marvel Girl, Beast, Iceman, Cyclops and Angel are still with us, and we're still kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Is this really the new status quo? Is it really sustainable to have two different versions of so many major characters rocking around the Marvel Universe?
