Marvel Legends’ Captain America Brings Some Friends to Fight the Iron Skull [Review]

Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America - Abomination Build-a-Figure Series

This year has been all about Captain America over in the Marvel Legends world. That kind of thing tends to happen when you're the star of a blockbuster film that perfectly fits within the Hasbro toy line's purview. On his third wave of the year, Hasbro has turned to some unexpected characters to fill out the roster. Though some have been characters fans have been waiting to see for years, others quite curiously make the cut in a time when nobody could have seen them coming --- Toy Fair previews notwithstanding.

Since this is the third Captain America line in the last 12 months, it also happens to be the weakest of the bunch. Ordinarily, a collection of characters like this might rate a little bit better, but having to follow the likes of Cap Wolf and Mockingbird or Black Panther and Nick Fury means this bunch of characters had an uphill battle from the get go.

Captain Marvel Takes on Thanos in New Marvel Lego Set, and There’s New Star Wars Sets Too, But Who Cares?

Marvel

Though Lego's Marvel Super Hero sets aren't always focused directly on the films, the frequency with which Marvel movies have released has at least in some ways influenced a great majority of sets over the past few years. There have been some smaller ventures as of late, with Miles Morales getting his own Spider-Man set for example, but for the most part, if you're not an Avenger or part of the MCU, you've been out of luck.

Today, that luck changes for one of Marvel's brightest stars. Announced as part of a new vehicle set (via ToyArk), Captain Marvel will finally join the Lego Marvel army, and she didn't have to wait for a movie to get the opportunity. The Avenjet Space Mission is one of two new sets Lego revealed as part of the Marvel Super Heroes line, with Star Wars also getting some love with another two sets. That's all fine and good, but we all know it's Captain Marvel that's the most surprising and welcome reveal of the day. Who even likes a star war anyway?

Hasbro Unleashes an Onslaught of Marvel Legends at NYCC 2015

Marvel Legends Rogue

Where Hasbro's pre-San Diego Comic-Con event treated us a new Spider-Man line, including Spider-Gwen and more, this week's pre-NYCC show was much more of a mixed bag. Though some of the figures shown actually made a brief appearance in San Diego (Captain America, Mockingbird and Taskmaster), the new additions were a stunning surprise. Of course, as great as it was to see such variation shown in the 6" Marvel Legends line, the news that the 3.75" line would be ditching its former monikers to fold into the Legend banner was just as huge.

No longer its own separate brand, the former Universe/Infinite line of figures will now also be known as Marvel Legends moving forward. Though it might cause some confusion among less savvy consumers, Hasbro has been using a similar tactic with the Star Wars Black Series to keep its highly-articulated figures, which are geared towards the adult collector, portioned off from the less articulate series. By bringing the 3.75" figures under the Legends marquee, Hasbro's just making a smart business decision to put its highest quality figures all in the same room. But enough about branding, let's talk about that 1990s Rogue.

‘Red Skull Incarnate': Best Use of Horrifying Real-Life History in a Superhero Comic

redskullcover00

Dealing with characters in a historically accurate environment can be tricky. Origin stories for villains with vague, unspecified pasts can be pretty hard to pull off, too. Typically, unsuccessful forays are quickly sloughed off in continuity sheddings, relegated to "imaginary story" status, and brushed away as interesting, but non-canonical, non-essential chunks of ignored lore...
