Heroes and Villains: Road to Justice League Edition

aj1

Later this week a little movie called Justice League opens, and I was curious what might be waiting at the comic shop should anyone wander in after seeing the movie. I hate to say, there’s not much new, and what there is might be confusing. So here’s where this special Road to Justice League edition of Heroes and Villains comes into play. Meet me after the jump so I can let you know what is out right now, and what you should be reading when it comes to Justice League.

Countdown to Civil War: Avengers vs. Defenders

av1

When folks think of Civil War, the seven-part Marvel Comics event that inspired the new film Captain America: Civil War, they think of superhero against superhero in an all-out war. But Civil War is by no means the first time that happened. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on a crossover event from a simpler time when Loki and Dormammu manipulated the Avengers and the Defenders to go to war against each other.

Guardians of the Galaxy S01 E14: Don’t Stop Believin’

gua1

One thing I have enjoyed about “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” animated series is the clever way the episode titles have also been the titles of classic rock tunes. With The Bride being such a huge Journey junkie, you can imagine this episode in particular was must-see television in our household. Meet me after the hyperspace jump for my thoughts on “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Finally, thanks to OnDemand, and ABC rerunning the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” the other night after “Galavant,” I was able to see and review the second episode. No thanks to Comcast, meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “A View in the Dark.”

31 Days of Horror 2015: The Avengers Vs. the Legion of the Unliving

There have been at least five versions of the Legion of the Unliving, but I’m going to be talking about the most purposeful, the most devious, and my favorite – those creatures pulled from time itself by Kang the Conqueror to not just destroy the Avengers but to help him rule the universe. Meet me after the jump and watch out for the original Legion of the Unliving!

Guardians of the Galaxy S01 E02: Knowhere to Run

When we last left our heroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy had come into possession of a puzzle box, called the Cosmic Seed, with clues to Star-Lord’s true heritage. While investigating its meaning on Knowhere, the dead Celestial’s head began to return to life, shaking things up quite a bit. Meet me after the quantum jump for my thoughts on “Knowhere to Run.”

Avengers Assemble S02 E22: Midgard Crisis

av1

There’s been lots of talk about Wonder Woman lately with the recent release of the new Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, including the first footage of Gal Gadot as the Amazon Princess (and Diana Prince!!), so for the “Avengers Assemble” team to face off against the Squadron Supreme’s own pseudo-Wonder Woman – Zarda – is rather timely. What does the polarizing Power Princess have in store for Thor? Meet me after the jump, for my review of this week’s episode, “Midgard Crisis,” to find out.

The Outrage of Ultron

av1

Marvel Comics released an original graphic novel this week, Avengers: Rage of Ultron, written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Jerome Opena, with Pepe Larraz, and additional inks by Mark Morales. Supposedly in continuity the story pits the Avengers of today and yesterday against the threat of Ultron, ending with mind-boggling circumstances and an insubstantial cliffhanger. The title nails it – rage, which is what I felt while reading it. Be prepared for spoilers, and meet me after the time jump for my angry thoughts about Rage of Ultron.
