The Avengers Assemble to Face the “Inhumans Among Us”

av1

The Inhumans have by and large replaced mutants in the Marvel Universe. From being major plot points in comics events like Infinity and Civil War II to propelling the last two seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Inhumans are the big new thing, and now the animated Avengers have got them. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Inhumans Among Us.”

The “Inhuman Touch” of Too Many Jokes on Guardians Of The Galaxy

agua1

Since Fox still holds the movie rights to the X-Men and the word “mutant,” it seems that the Inhumans have become Marvel’s golden children. They have been front and center in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the current Civil War II, and Infinity brought a new generation of Inhumans to the world. Now, the Guardians of the Galaxy meet the Inhumans again, meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Episode 21, “Inhuman Touch.”

Countdown To Civil War: CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Easter Egg Wants

Civil War Final PosterCaptain America: Civil War, perhaps the most eagerly anticipated film of the year, is days away from dropping.

The trailers for the film have been absolutely astounding; the build up to the conflict between two favourite heroes, riveting; and the fan excitement level, at al all-time peak.

As the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Phase Three, Captain America: Civil War should form the basis for the plethora of Marvel films to come. That extensive list includes this fall’s Doctor Strange, next year’s Thor: Ragnarok and Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and then Captain Marvel among others. Wrapping up the phase will be the two-part extravaganza: Avengers: Infinity War.

And if you know Marvel Comics, and are a fan of these Marvel movies, then you’re looking for Easter Eggs – those hidden gems of story, characters or incidents that only the most educated of the educated know about.

We here at Biff Bam Pop! love talking about them. That’s what this article is for: Easter Egg wants. Our wishes. Our desires. And like good ‘ol Cap, we could do this all day.

Here, then, are the Easter Eggs that four Biff Bam Pop! writers (and Marvel Cinematic Universe enthusiasts) want to see in the highly anticipated blockbuster film.

Give them a read and then tell us what your Easter Egg wants are, fan-boys and fan-girls!

Oh! The Inhumanity #1 On The Wednesday Run–December 4, 2013

Have you been reading the regular Infinity reviews over the last few months by Biff Bam Pop’s own Glenn Walker? You know, Infinity. Infinity? The B-I-G Marvel Comics event that just wrapped up last week with the final issue in the “mini-series”? (I use quotes because beyond the sic=x main Infinity books, there were tie-in books that brought the total chapter count to well over twenty.) Jeez, where have you been? Well, get caught up on the latest (and last) Infinity review by our pal Glenn, right here.

Now, I loved Infinity. To me, it ranks up there as one of the greatest event comics I’ve ever read. For those asking, DC’s 1985 series, Crisis On Infinite Earths is still the greatest of the great but Infinity ranks a solid second.

Still, Infinity ended the same way all of these recent “event” series seem to end: with a continuation into yet another “event” series! Oh, the Inhumanity!

Exactly.

Infinity: Thor!

Yeah, I know. I’m a bad reviewer. I had been reviewing the Marvel Comics crossover event called Infinity by Jonathan Hickman on a week by week basis here at Biff Bam Pop!, but since Marvel didn’t halt their publishing schedule to accommodate my vacation, I’m a little behind. To make up for it, today I’ll be talking about four different Infinity comics. Meet me after the jump for my spoiler-filled thoughts on New Avengers #10, Infinity #3, Avengers #20, and Infinity: Heist #1.

The Other Side of Infinity

Jonathan Hickman’s Infinity from Marvel Comics seems to be getting rave reviews. I’m sorry, I just don’t get it. The story promises so much. Thanos vs. the Avengers, a battle for all of time and space and dimension, an invasion of Earth – so much – but does it deliver? Join me after the jump, for my review of Infinity #1.
