All-New X-Men #14

Review: All-New X-Men #14

How do you go from having stellar issue after issue to putting out a very mediocre one?  The Phoenix Force tease was simply a tease, a ruse by Jean Grey to fool all of their enemies.  Freak them out with [...]

Superior Spider-Man #22 Cover

First Look:Superior Spider-Man #22

Best thing about Superior Spider-Man is that it feels like a fresh story.  I am well aware these are all rehashed stories but with different characters but somehow it changes the outcome every time.  It isn’t about “Will Spider-Man win?” [...]

Amazing X-Men #1 Cover

First Look:Amazing X-Men #1

Pretty sure it was just three days ago I was tipping my hat to Marvel for keeping dead characters dead as of late.   But if they are going to bring back any dead X-Men character I am glad it [...]

Fantastic Four #10 Cover

Review: Fantastic Four #10

Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley, two men who are slowly but surely becoming just as recognized as Dan Slott and Ryan Stegman.   Marvel likes to call every single person who works for them a “fan favorite” or “superstar” but these two [...]

InHuman Teaser

First Look: Inhumans #1

Picture worth a thousand words anyone?  Is this going to be the culminating event that brings back so many of our favorite heroes that have passed on?  That is definitely a picture of Peter Parker Spider-Man and 616 Nightcrawler!   [...]

Uncanny X-Men #8 Cover

Review: Uncanny X-Men #8

Wasn’t Danger supposed to be on the Extinction Team?  When was the last time you even saw her, I am pretty sure it was in the All-New X-Men covers but I could be wrong.  On one side I am absolutely [...]

Wolverine:Japan's Most Wanted

First Look:Wolverine:Japan’s Most Wanted

Another Wolverine story!  Just what the world needs!  Forget every other Marvel character, we need to add more Wolverine stories asap!  Obviously that was sarcasm, but with The Wolverine hitting theaters sooner rather than later we are going to need [...]

Iron Man:Fatal Frontier

First Look:Iron Man Fatal Frontier

Iron Man vs. Doctor Doom?  Even though Doom would wipe the floor with Tony Stark in a one on one battle I still think this could be worth the time.  Am I the only one who still really hates Iron [...]

What If Avengers vs. X-Men Cover

Review: What If? Avengers vs. X-Men #1

Why didn’t Jimmy Palmiotti write the “actual” Avengers vs. X-Men?  Only one issue deep and we have  a death take place!?  I love it!  This is what would REALLY happen if these two went head to head.  Even with multiple [...]

New Avengers #8

First Look: New Avengers #8

With every Marvel Now! title comes a little shake up to the roster.  Enter: New Avengers, a look into what the Illuminati deals with from time to time.  Best part about New Avengers?  No Wolverine!  But Beast gets added to [...]

Uncanny X-Men #7 Cover

Uncanny X-Men #7

The Cyclops X-Men team should be one of, if not THE most entertaining X-Men book on the shelves.  Rabid fans who usually go crazy over seeing a hero fall have not been too harsh on Cyclops heel turn.  It was [...]

All-New X-Men #13 Cover

All-New X-Men #13

Jean Grey has died so many times it has gotten almost hilarious, an inside joke to hardcore X-Men fans, so how in the world has Brian Michael Bendis made me feel so bad for young Jean Grey?  I am completely [...]

Uncanny Avengers #9

Uncanny Avengers #9

The only title to have the gumption to show how little the X-Men and Avengers really trust one another brings another issue of mistrust, deceit, and humility.   As this story continues we (the audience) are given glimpses into the [...]

Age of Ultron #10A.I. Cover

First Look:Age of Ultron #10

Well spoiler alert, looks like Hank Pym won’t stay dead (big surprise).  Apparently the grim future will not be the continued presence of Marvel Comics.  But perhaps this is how the Ultimate Universe merges with the 616?  Remember when they [...]

Avengers #14 Cover

First Look: Avengers #14

Jonathan Hickman‘s first Avengers story arc is wrapping up, as Gumby’s former enemy The Blockheads start popping up making more trouble for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.   But that isn’t the big news here, the big news is that this is [...]
