She-Hulk #7 Micro-Manages A Rescue (Spoilers)

I'm thoroughly digging She-Hulk. She's struck out on her own, hanging a shingle and bringing in clients, both super and mundane. It gives her comic an episodic feel, while providing superhero action in a variety of settings. (And any comic that passes the Bechdel test is a winner in my book.)

Captains America: The Many Who Carried the Shield

It's official, Sam Wilson will be the next Captain America - but he's already been Captain America, and so have a bunch of other people! Steve Rogers has long said that the tradition of Captain America should continue without him, and a lot of brave Americans (and others!) have taken up the shield! » 7/18/14 3:07am 7/18/14 3:07am

Captain America: The First Interventionist

Captain America introduced himself to Americans by punching Adolf Hitler in the face on the cover of Captain America Comics #1. While this is something the vast majority of people would applaud in this day and age, Timely Comics, the predecessor to Marvel Comics, debuted Captain America in early 1941, when the U.S.… » 1/02/14 5:29pm 1/02/14 5:29pm

​Marvel at a Museum Dedicated to One of Comics' Greatest Artists

Captain America, the Hulk, Fantastic Four... If you read superhero comics, you've probably liked a character created or co-created by Jack Kirby. He made the battles of superheroes like Thor feel larger than life but he also grew up fighting in the streets of New York City's gritty Lower East Side neighborhood. And… » 11/12/13 5:50pm 11/12/13 5:50pm

New Marvel Game Gives Stan Lee Eleven Super-Powers. And Immortality.

No one likes to think about it but there will be a day when Stan Lee’s cameos will end. He may be an indefatigable 90-year-old but the co-creator of The Fantastic Four, Hulk and Spider-Man is still only human. But, in the upcoming Lego Marvel Super-Heroes video game, Stan Lee is pretty much omnipotent. » 9/10/13 4:02pm 9/10/13 4:02pm

Thanos concept art from The Avengers shows the mad titan close up

Tucked away in some crazy marketing ploy exclusive app designed to get fans to spend all of their money on new Avengers Blu-rays and DVDs is some very nice Thanos concept art. Behold the macho, ribbed chin of the Avengers' next big problem. This art was hidden inside the Avengers Initiative: Marvel Second Screen… » 9/27/12 6:35am 9/27/12 6:35am

The 1983 X-Men Coloring Book Is A Lost Psychedelic Masterpiece

When famous science fiction heroes make the jump to children's coloring books, usually the characters' dignity is jettisoned in the process. But such was not the case with the 1983 Uncanny X-Men Super Activity Book. Indeed, this unheralded tome — in which Magneto builds a frightening "Alphabet Beast" — may very well… » 9/26/12 12:25pm 9/26/12 12:25pm

This is one rather trippy Punisher fan movie

Animator Luis Pelayo Junquera has taken one of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's most poignant Punisher tales — "Do Not Fall In New York City" — and transformed it into a dream-like short movie. This story sees Frank Castle not going up against his usual coterie of mafiosos, but a troubled soldier he knew from the… » 9/11/12 1:55pm 9/11/12 1:55pm

Ad from the 1980s promised that superhero impersonators would end the…

After reading this advertisement, how many artisanal bassoon rental shoppes thought to themselves, "Well, that's what I've been doing wrong. Time to hire the Green Goblin and the Thing to hang outside my store for three months straight." (It's also worth mentioning that if you recruited Captain America for your… » 9/04/12 6:30am 9/04/12 6:30am
