For the third season finale of Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution, all Avengers assemble to fight Ultron and find a way to free the Inhumans and the world from his control. Can they do it? Find out after the jump in my review of “Civil War, Part 4: Avengers Revolution.”
The animated Civil War continues on Avengers: Ultron Revolution. With the original Avengers and Songbird in prison, the Black Widow on the run, and Captain America blasted – who will save us all when the Inhumans, mind-controlled by evil forces, attack? Meet me after the jump for the answer and my thoughts on “Civil War, Part 3: The Drums of War.”
This week in Heroes and Villains our selection of new Marvel Comics includes far flung space action (not), one of the company’s current big events, a first issue featuring one of New York’s most dastardly villains, and the biggest female star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy #17, Inhumans Vs. X-Men #4, Kingpin #1, and Black Widow #11…
When an idea is successful, you recycle it as much as possible. Take Marvel Comics’ Civil War, the great maxi-series that pitted Iron Man against Captain America over civil rights issues. The story was a bit different but still roughly the same and just as successful with the last Captain America film of the same name. They tried again this past year with Civil War II with less than satisfactory results. Now the name Civil War comes to Avengers: Ultron Revolution. Meet me after the jump to see how it works out, with my review of “Civil War, Part One: The Fall of Attilan.”
Back from the dead, and back from Hell in the last episode, Ghost Rider and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are ready for the real enemy, the matter manipulating Elias Morrow. All agents are on board, including the big guns – Quake, Yo-Yo, and even Aida. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics.”
Talk is cheap. And in Civil War II #7, nothing happens but talk, and it’s not cheap. For five dollars American I got pretty pictures, a lot of talk, hardly any plot progression, and nothing happens. In a comic that includes entire pages taken up by credits, alternate covers, a next issue tease, and a minimalist roll call, that is awful. When it’s taken into account how late this event series is, it is simply an awful shame. But then again, what does or doesn’t happen in this issue may be a matter of perspective, and we may just have seen the death of another major Marvel superhero. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on what does happen in Civil War II #7…
Civil War II is not just happening in the core title this summer and autumn (and possibly into winter!), but also throughout the Marvel Comics line. There have been a ton of comics connected to it and talking about it, or at least pretending to. Meet me after the jump and I’ll be discussing Civil War II comics featuring Ulysses, Karnak, Doctor Doom, Nick Fury, and the Totally Awesome Hulk, among others.
When last we left the Avengers, after a skirmish with the Inhumans, the two teams made friends, and witnessed the birth of a new Inhuman, Inferno. But behind the scenes, one of the Inhumans, Seeker, reported to Ultron, not good news. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Inhuman Condition.”
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.”
For too long in the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s quest for the Cosmic Seed, we have been thinking of it as an object, but it may be more than that. This powerful MacGuffin may also have been affecting our heroes’ actions as well. Check out my review of “I’ve Been Searching So Long” after the jump.
