Lego Marvel's Avengers Gets Season Pass Details
Lego Marvel's Avengers Gets Season Pass Details
Next week, Captain Marvel finally makes it into Lego Marvel's Avengers. Not only that, but unlike many of the characters already included in the massive roster for TT Games' latest Marvel adventure, she'll be getting her own level pack as well. If you count mobile titles, this is not the first time Carol Danvers will be a playable character in a video game, but her addition to the roster of Lego Marvel's Avengers is the closest thing many of us will get to a true Captain Marvel video game... at least until she finally joins the Avengers and someone figures out how to make a great movie-licensed video game again. The Captain Marvel level pack will also introduce the likes of Kang The Conqueror, Magnitron, Moonstone, Poundcakes, Tic, Warbird, and Wonder Man. This is quite possibly the only time characters like Poundcakes and Tic will ever be considered for playable characters in a video game, and again shows just how deep of a well TT is willing to dive into to bolster Lego Marvel's Avengers roster. Carol's skycycle and Helen Cobb's plane will be added too, vehicles all control like melty sticks of butter in the game. Why would I ever use one when I can just fly everywhere?
Small Town Terror in 'Standoff: Welcome To Pleasant Hill' #1
Small Town Terror in 'Standoff: Welcome To Pleasant Hill' #1
This week saw the release of the prologue issue to Marvel’s spring event Avengers Standoff, in the form Avengers Standoff: Welcome To Pleasant Hill #1 by Nick Spencer, Mark Bagley, Scott Hanna and Paul Mounts. The event has been touted for a long time now, but heading into this first issue it was still rather unclear exactly what Standoff was going to be about. Things are a lot clearer following the release of Welcome To Pleasant Hill, which is a moody mystery hidden behind a sunny suburban smile. Be warned this review contains meaty spoilers for the first salvo in this event as we unpack the events of the issue and its killer cliffhanger. In other words, if you want to know what Standoff is actually about before you investigate further, we're going to do our best to tell you.

Thoughtfully Approaching History: A Tribute to Kurt Busiek
Thoughtfully Approaching History: A Tribute to Kurt Busiek
Today is the birthday of Kurt Busiek, one of comics' most storied and influential creators, born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1960. A thoughtful approach to continuity has long been Busiek's stock-in-trade as. One of his first major contributions to comics was to solve the problem of bringing Jean Grey back to life. As controversial as the resurrection was --- arguably as controversial as her death in the first place --- Busiek's solution was considered and weighted with potential, recasting Jean as a stranger to her own friends and family and carefully making use of established story details with a new spin.

The Harvey/Renee Index of Superhero Diversity
We like diversity here at ComicsAlliance. We've said it before, and we'll say it again. We're also big fans of superheroes, and that probably goes without saying. We especially like diversity with our superheroes.

Hasbro Unveils ‘Thunderbolts,’ ‘G.I. Joe Vs. Transformers,’ And More SDCC 2013 Exclusives
Maybe I'm biased having spent the better part of sixth grade painting spare Spider-Man toys to look like Citizen V, but having seen USA Today's reveal of Hasbro's San Diego Comic-Con 2013 exclusives all I can really think is, "It's about dadburn time we got some Thunderbolts action figures."
Way and Dillon’s ‘Thunderbolts’ Brings a MAX Flavor to Marvel NOW [Review]
Way and Dillon’s ‘Thunderbolts’ Brings a MAX Flavor to Marvel NOW [Review]
The first thing you'll likely notice about the new Thunderbolts #1 from writer Daniel Way and artist Steve Dillon is that it is a violent comic. It's also not necessarily the comic you were expecting. It's fair to say that this version of the team, which now includes Venom, Deadpool, Elektra, the Red Hulk and the Punisher, is an attempt to New Avengers-ize the Thunderbolts title, replacing the c
