Over twenty years after six teenagers with attitude burst onto the scene, the Power Rangers are as popular as ever, and this week they're crossing the dimensional barrier to meet up with DC's most iconic heroes, the Justice League.
Ahead of the release of Justice League/Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, ComicsAlliance spoke to creators Tom Taylor and Stephen Byrne about crossing the two universes over, maintaining the appropriate tone, and the likelihood of Bulk and Skull versus Batman.
Those of us who were getting panicky about the absence of Wolverine from the ResurrXion announcements can all calm down a bit now. Marvel announced today that All-New Wolverine will continue with its current numbering while the rest of the X-line relaunches.
Tom Taylor is staying on as writer, with Leonard Kirk joining as series artist with issue #19, which also brings a cover redesign to match the branding of the ResurrXion books, as well as cover art by Adam Kubert and the beginning of a new story arc, "Immune." It's still weird that none of the X-Men team books feature Wolverine, but at least we know she's still going to be a part of the Marvel Universe.
There's always been a seamless crossover between video games and comic books, and odds are if you're a fan of one, you're a fan of the other. Comics have been adapted into video games and vice-versa for almost as long as video games have been "a thing," and as both mediums have evolved, so too has the quality of those crossovers. With the holidays around the corner, we've put together a selection of some of the best video game related comics and art books for the gamer in your life.
The recently released trailer for Logan — Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine — has fans hopeful it could be the best in what can generously be referred to as a patchy trilogy of solo films for the character. The central focus for the new trailer is the young girl left in Logan's care by Professor X, who it was revealed will be called "Laura" confirming her as at least analogous to Laura Kinney, the X-Man formerly known as X-23 and currently starring as the new Wolverine in All-New Wolverine.
Laura first appeared in the animated series X-Men Evolution before making the leap to the comics as Wolverine discovered the existence of his teenage female clone. Laura has been a huge part of Marvel Comics for over twelve years now, and there's a lot of continuity packed in there, but we've picked out the five best comics to help familiarize yourself with the character.
When DC and IDW published Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earlier this year, I honestly thought that DC Comics had hit the apex of putting out crossovers that fans have been wanting since at least 1993. It turns out that I was wrong, because in January, DC and Boom Studios are teaming up for Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a six-issue mini-series in which Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Green Lantern and the Flash team up with Angel Grove's favorite Teenagers With Attitudes for an all-new adventure.
Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's original "Enemy of the State" story was a huge deal for Marvel in the early 2000s, as it brought the popular widescreen style to the main Marvel Universe and was one of the first "blockbuster" stories of the decade.
Next month, Laura Kinney --- the All-New Wolverine --- faces a similar trial of her own as she is manipulated and forced to become a killer once again in Tom Taylor and Nik Virella "Enemy of the State II". Ahead of the blockbuster sequel, Marvel has provided an early, unlettered look at the first issue of the storyline in All-New Wolverine #13.
Since the announcement of the Death of X crossover event between the X-Men and the Inhumans, fans of the Marvel's merry mutants have been worried that the end may be nigh for the Children of the Atom. These worries certainly weren't abated when Marvel released the Marvel NOW Previews book, which contained no mention of the ongoing X-Men titles continuing into October.
At a panel on Thursday during San Diego Comic Con, Marvel editors and creators spoke about the tease of what Death of X might mean for the franchise, but several of the ongoing titles such as Uncanny, All-New and Extraordinary X-Men were confirmed to be continuing. The big news, however, is that Laura Kinney AKA Wolverine will be following in her mentor's bloody footsteps in a sequel to Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's "Enemy of the State."
The pilot for the planned series Cannon Busters, released recently to Kickstarter backers, explores fantasy, adventure, and history genres with something we rarely see in animation; black lead characters. As creator LeSean Thomas told us in a recent interview, it makes sense for him to make work that reflects the world he's used to.
Hopefully that thinking is becoming more commonplace. Bumblebee is getting buzz in DC Super Hero Girls, with an additional chance to shine in the animated short, Hero of the Month: Bumblebee, while Princess Allura was reimagined as a brown woman for Netflix's Voltron. But there are an increasing number of independent creators working to animate their own original stories with black characters at the forefront. Whether it's at the bottom of the ocean, or in futuristic versions of Africa, there are animated series with black lead characters that we think you should look out for!
We won't keep you guessing; RIP MukMuk, random fish Green Lantern who appears prominently on the cover for this week’s Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #1. You were too good for this galaxy, which never appreciated your ability to live both outside water and in the vacuum of space, with only minimal squelching noises apparent whenever you were lettered. Your five or six lines of dialogue total will be forever remembered.
Spider-Man; Captain America; Thor; Hulk; Marvel has done a remarkable job in recent years of passing some of its best known hero identities from a surfeit of regular ol' white dudes to characters that better represent the diversity of the world we live in, sometimes by handing the mantle to a person of color, sometimes to a woman, sometimes both.
This welcome development continues with a woman, Laura Kinney, taking the role of Wolverine, and making her official debut with that codename in All-New Wolverine #1 next month courtesy of writer Tom Taylor and the art team of David Lopez and David Navarrot. Marvel has released a preview that you can check out below, along with all the variant covers.
