This week we're celebrating kids comics, and how comics inspire and influence people from an early age. Comics are often a gateway into fiction as a whole, and for many, the characters we met as kids remain some of our personal heroes to this day, whether they wear a cape or not.
The question we put to our contributors this week is: Who was your childhood comics hero?
It looks like Fox’s long-developing New Mutants project is picking up a bit of steam, as the studio has hired The Fault in Our Stars duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber to write the screenplay for the X-Men spinoff. The pair will reunite with director Josh Boone for the film, which will follow a younger group of mutant outcasts as they cope with newfound powers.
By now, superhero TV fans are more or less used to series not maintaining much connection with their cinematic peers, but FX and FOX’s X-Men two-fer of Legion and an untitled mutant series sparks hope anew. To wit, X-Men director Bryan Singer says Legion could take place in the movie universe after all, while both “will relate to future X-Men movies.”
Born on this day in 1967, Brian Michael Bendis is one of the most important and influential figures in western comics in the 21st century. From indie comics wunderkind to top dog at Marvel Comics, Bendis’ career has been expansive and occasionally revolutionary, so today we're taking a moment to celebrate his achievements.
The upcoming Wolverine sequel has long been hyped as Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the iconic hero, but he may not be the only one preparing to say farewell to the X-Men franchise. In a new interview, Patrick Stewart reveals that Wolverine 3 (or 2, if you’re ignoring X-Men Origins) may very well feature his last appearance as Professor Charles Xavier.
Despite unveiling simultaneously, FOX and FX’s X-Men TV series Hellfire and Legion arrived at vastly different stages of development, to the point Hellfire ended up replaced with a new X-series. Now, FOX explains the decision to cool Hellfire, identifying it as a show that “wanted to live as a feature.”
One of the worst things about not being able to make it to San Diego Comic Con is missing out on all the cool exclusive pieces of merchandise that are only available at the show. There are so many cool art prints and badges and even vinyl records that it can be heartbreaking to know there's only one place to get them and you aren't there.
If you couldn't make it to this year's show, Mondo has you covered, as it's releasing the remaining inventory of exclusive posters and enamel pins from this year's convention on the website, including some rad Batman Returns posters and cool X-Men pins.
This year's San Diego Comic-Con may not have felt as over-stuffed as years passed, but that didn't mean the convention floor wasn't still jam-packed with incredible cosplay. The annual event is still home to some of the biggest and brightest cosplayers in the 'verse, and we were reminded just how talented and creative comic book fans can be when roaming the show floor this year. We managed to track down some fantastic highlights on Saturday, and captured them for all of you to witness here.
Noah Hawley’s FX X-Men drama Legion might have skipped out on Comic-Con 2016 itself, but when better to drop a first look? Up is down, cats and dogs are living together, and everything seems bonkers insane in the first full Legion trailer, complete with dance number!
There have been several iconic characters in the Brotherhood of Mutants over the years, starting with the initial line-up of Magneto, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Mastermind, and Toad. With so many great characters to choose from, it’s no wonder people would want cosplay these powerful mutants at conventions and for photo shoots
The cosplayers we've assembled here bring the might of the Brotherhood to life in creative and fantastic ways. They may be bad, but they can still look good. These are the best Brotherhood of Mutants cosplays.
