Bizarro Back Issues: Omega Red And His MUTANT DEATH FACTOR!!! (1992)

deathfactor01

If you're a regular reader of the Bizarro Back Issues column, then you may have realized that I've been reading through some of the "classic" '90s X-Men stories lately. A few weeks ago, I broke down the mind-boggling saga of Gambit's ex-wife and Ghost Rider fig

Bizarro Back Issues: How Gambit’s Wife Got The Ghost Rider Possessed By Aliens (1992)

Of course, they're also some o

It had been known for a while that acclaimed Batman and American Vampire writer Scott Snyder would eventually collaborate with DC Comics co-publisher and mega-popular artist Jim Lee for a new Superman project, but it was only this week that the company confirmed the final details: Superman Uncha

Mutant Women of Earth: How Chris Claremont Reinvented the Female Superhero

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."

dccollectiblestoyfair2013main

DC Collectibles has a lot coming out in 2013, especially for action figure fans. We've gotten pretty extensive looks at DCC's Batman: Arkham City and Injustice: Gods Among Us lines of late, but there was still plenty of new toys to see at the DCC booth including a massive AC Solomon Grundy (with removable guts) and a nimble 3.75" IGAU Flash. On the New 52/Justice League side of things, DCC had 6" versions of Captain Cold, Black Adam, Gre
