If you read the latest issue of Civil War II, or read the review of it here at Biff Bam Pop!, you know how it ended, and it was not pretty. How far would you go to stop such a terrible event from taking place? Would you imprison the actor before the act? That’s the question on all of our minds. Get a sneak peek at what Marvel Comics’ superheroes think, and do, in this sneak peek at CIVIL WAR II #6, after the jump.
All through the last episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. we were teased and taunted with the identity and agenda of the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., now we finally get to meet him. Plus a second round of Quake vs. Ghost Rider, all this and more in my review of “Meet the New Boss,” after the jump.
Created in 1941 by the psychologist and writer, William Moulton Marston, the greatest of the Amazons has seen both regular publication and acclaim in comic books, books, television, video games, board games, toys and film, for seventy-five years. It’s a true testament to her inherent characteristics, chiefly that of being timely and important to any age.

Chris Pratt and Denzel Washington were a wild and winning combination this weekend at the box office, as their new film scored with audiences. Here’s what went down:
The Magnificent Seven proved to big a hit, debuting in first place at the box office with a strong $35.4 million. This showing is director Antoine Fuqua’s biggest opening ever, and the second best western debut after Cowboys and Aliens $36 million (and you could argue that that film was more science fiction than western).

Despite delays from both Marvel Comics itself, and this reviewer as well, the next installment of 2016’s biggest crossover comics event, Civil War II, is finally here.
