The Question: Which Series Should Marvel Launch Next?

missamerica

For today’s question, we asked our writers; Which comics should Marvel Comics launch after Secret Wars? Marvel has been unveiling its new line-up over the past few days, with the full reveal coming on Wednesday 1 July, and what the publisher has announced thus far has shown plenty of promise, including a more diverse Avengers team and a new central role for Miles Morales in the Marvel Universe. But there's always room for more. More diversity, more originality, more weirdness.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: The 1980s Called…

supercostumes13

Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.

This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade. Today it's five costumes from the 1980s, the decade that style forgot. But it wasn't all disco collars all the time; the era produced some great costumes as well. And maybe some of them even had disco collars. Right? Right?

Marvel Unveils ‘A-Force’, The All-Female Avengers, But Not On ‘The View’

AFORCE_001-hed

Marvel promised a "forceful" announcement on ABC's daytime talk show The View today, and the entire world was ready for a Secret Wars/Star Wars crossover comic that would pit Jar-Jar Binks against Adam The X-Treme (or something), and then... nothing. There was no Star Wars announcement. There was no announcement of any kind; it got bumped off the show. Still, someone at Marvel has hopefully learned an important lesson about not using the word 'force' to promote things that don't involve Star Wars.

What Marvel did announce today was a new Secret Wars tie-in that is legitimately exciting in its own right, just sadly overshadowed by the Star Wars announcement that never was and the epic DC announcement that kicked off the day. The real announcement, unveiled through various outlets, is a new all-female Avengers book from writers G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett, and artist Jorge Molina, called A-Force.

Kieron Gillen’s Unused ‘Dazzler’ Pitch Is The Kieron Gillenest Kieron Gillen To Ever Kieron Gillen

You probably don't know this since he keeps it pretty quiet, but Kieron Gillen, the writer of Young Avengers, Iron Man and The Wicked + The Divine, is a pretty big fan of pop music. I know, I was surprised too, since it almost never comes up. But, back when he and artist Jamie McKelvie were working on the first volume of Phonogram, the word got out and Gillen was apparently asked to pitch a story starring Marvel's very own mutant pop star superhero, Dazzler!

The story was never picked up, likely owing to it being a Dazzler story about the Inhumans and the Celestials, but today, Gillen posted his full pitch on his Tumblr, and, as you might expect if you're familiar with Gillen's comics, it's actually pretty awesome.

Jim Shooter’s ‘Dazzler’ Movie Pitch, Starring Rodney Dangerfield and KISS, Is Completely Insane

dazzler01

Of all the Marvel characters you could pick to make it big in Hollywood, Dazzler, the roller-skating mutant disco diva, probably isn't all that high on the list. And yet, according to legendary editor Jim Shooter, there isn't just a time when that was a pretty likely possibility, it's also the entire reason she was created.

Shooter has posted the entire history of the Dazzler M
