New York, NY – July 7, 2017 – Marvel Legacy is changing the way you read comics – and the future of the Marvel Universe. This fall, Marvel is proud to present MARVEL PRIMER PAGES!, three all-new pages of comic content written by Robbie Thompson (Silk, Doctor Strange and the Sorcerer Supreme) with a majority of art from acclaimed superstar Mark Bagley (The Amazing Spider-Man, All New X-Men, Ultimate Spider-Man). These stories will draw all readers into the Marvel Universe like never before. And at no extra cost to the reader, what better way to change the way readers jump into a series!

And it’s all kicking off in March’s can’t-miss X-MEN PRIME #1! Featuring a collection of blockbuster creators, the next chapter of the X-Men’s saga begins in this oversized one-shot!
Still on the trail of the Cosmic Seed, which is giving life to whatever and wherever it touches, the Guardians of the Galaxy come to a moon, which may or may not have been Ego the Living Planet, and finds something else as well… Meet me after the hyperspace jump for my thoughts on “Bad Moon Rising.”
Other than a nameless Venom appearance, I can’t really figure out what the point of this episode really is. We have a wild goose chase, with little logic to the plot, if there is one. It’s fun, yes, but nowhere near as much fun as the first few episodes of “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.” Meet me after the hyperspace jump for my brief thoughts on “Hitchin’ a Ride.”
There seem to be two types of people in this world – folks who think Spider-Man should be in the Avengers, and folks who think the wall crawler should not be an Avenger. Where do you stand on the issue? In the comics, the web-slinger has been one of Earth’s Mightiest for some time now, but it took decades to happen. Now, Marvel’s latest animated version of Spider-Man joins the team in this weekend’s new episode of “Ultimate Spider-Man.” Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Avenging Spider-Man.”
There was no new episode of “Avengers Assemble” this week, just a rerun of the clash with the Space Phantoms in the “Ghost of a Chance” episode, but that doesn’t mean that Disney XD and The Disney Channel had a lack of animated Avengers this weekend. Join me after the jump for my reviews of “Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel” and this week’s “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” guest-starring Iron Man.
Sometimes things are not what they seem. Sometimes you need to see both sides of a situation before knowing the truth. Such is the case in #TRUTHINJOURNALISM, a short film produced by Adi Shankar and Sam Balcomb, written and directed by Joe Lynch, and starring Ryan Kwanten of HBO’s “True Blood.”
Who were Peter Parker’s parents? This is not a concept that many of us ever think of. As readers, as fans, we are far too invested in Aunt May, worrying over her health, and how she herself worries over Peter. And then there’s Uncle Ben, whose death is the not only the catharsis for the true origin of Spider-Man, but also the core of the famous phrase, “With great power comes great responsibility.” It is shameful but it’s true, Peter’s aunt and uncle are so important in the Spider-Man mythology, that no one hardly, if ever, gives any thought to his parents.
Who were Richard and Mary Parker? Let’s find out after the jump.

In keeping with the Spider-Man theme this week, and in anticipation of the new movie coming out, I figured it was only natural that I delve into the video game side of Spider-Man. There are a ton of Spider-Man games out there, with a few gems in the mix. The one that I loved however – and a LOT of people will disagree with me on this one – was Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage on the SNES.
