In a rare follow-up to a previous “Avengers Assemble” episode, “The Serpent of Doom,” the Avengers visit Latveria to restabilize the nation since its leader, Doctor Doom, is among the missing. They expect to fight the forces of Hydra and AIM, but what they find is a weird hybrid of Doctor Doom and the Destroyer. Meet me after the jump for my brief review of this week’s episode “The Doomstroyer.”
Coming to Disney XD this Sunday is the newest of the new Marvel Universe animated series – “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” Now I don’t know what S.M.A.S.H. stands for, but I did get a chance to see the first episode, the first part of a story called “Doorway to Destruction” which airs on Disney XD this Sunday. Check out my review, right after the jump.
As a side effect of saving the day in Age of Ultron, Wolverine apparently broke space and time. Yep, you read that right. One of the things this causes is dimensional rifts opening up, making passage to parallel universes possible. The ramifications are huge, and many, but there’s one that we’ll be focusing on as Hunger #1 hits the comic shop shelves. This week, Galactus comes to the Ultimate Universe, and he’s hungry! Get your appetizers, after the jump!
This villain has been teased twice so far in the “Avengers Assemble” animated series on Disney XD, and now Earth’s Mightiest Heroes come face to face with Marvel Comics’ most dangerous super-villain – Doctor Doom. My review of “The Serpent of Doom” is right after the jump.
In the third episode of “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” we get more of the Falcon’s rookie perspective, and the appearance of one (some) of my favorite of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ rogues gallery – the Space Phantom(s). The Avengers assemble, after the jump.
Everything has changed in the Marvel Universe of the Age of Ultron maxi-series. In a bid to save everything, Wolverine has traveled to the past and murdered the Avenger Hank Pym before he can create the artificial intelligence known as Ultron – who in the present has conquered the planet and decimated mankind.
One continuity, wiped from time by Ultron, a second, marred by the berserker Wolverine trying to set things right. Now we find ourselves in a world unlike either before it, one where Wolverine and the Invisible Woman are prisoners of an Iron Man who rules this planet. What’s next? Find out in my review of Age of Ultron Book Eight, after the jump…
The worst thing that can happen has happened to the Marvel Comics universe. Ultron, the Avengers’ most dangerous enemy, a machine monster built by one of their own, has conquered and laid waste to the planet, and decimated and enslaved mankind. The few surviving heroes of the world have escaped to the Savage Land where they have come up with a plan to save us all.
With access to Doctor Doom’s Time Platform, half of the heroes have decided to go to the future, from which Ultron has masterminded this conquest, and defeat him once and for all. However, Wolverine has different plans, he will go to the past and kill the Avenger Hank Pym, who created Ultron in the first place, before it happens.

Every other week, Jason Shayer will highlight an issue or a run of issues pulled from the horde of comic book long boxes that occupy more room in his house than his wife can tolerate. Each of these reviews will delve into what made that issue or run significant as well as discuss the creative personalities behind the work. “Long Box” refers to the lengthy, white cardboard boxes most comics find themselves stored within – bagged, alphabetized and numerically ordered.
