Marvel has been doing some crazy stuff these past several weeks. Beyond a bajillion movie reveals, there have also been a number of comics announcements. Many of these come in the form of teasers intended to be released next summer. It's anyone's guess what they are, they're that mysterious. Here's a list of them so far:
Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies
X-Men: Years of Future Past
House of M
Old Man Logan
Age of Apocalypse
Inhumans: Attilan Rising
End of the Ultimate Universe
Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows
Avengers vs. X-Men
As you can see, these numerous teasers just leave you guessing what's going on. Are they new events? Revisits of old events? Marvel's version of The Ne…
The title says it all. Believe it or not, the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been leaked. And it's spectacular.

Okay, let's face it: Marvel's current line of animated television series sucks. Sure there's one single universe for all three series, and sure the series expands more on lesser-known characters such as Swarm. But in Man of Action's attempt to recreate the Joss Whedon formula for the TV-Y7-FV audience, they have just created a dull, dizzying, and flat-out awful narrative structure that has gotten the series much more mixed reviews than the critically lauded Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and The Spectacular Spider-Man (Animated Series).
Luckily, the new season is bound to keep people's interests for at least SOME time, and even if Deadpool isn't going to shatter the fourth wall again (at the moment), we're getting treated to something m…
If you haven't heard already, Marvel is going pretty big with 2014 after Original Sin wraps up. In fact, we're getting three - yeah, THREE - Marvel crossover events until the end of the year. Kind of an excess, but they're all shaping up to be really, really great. Let's go into detail over them:
(WARNING: SPOILER ALERT!)
First off is another tragic yet redundant comic book death event. The event is called "Three Months to Die", and will run between a certain eighth issue and a certain twelfth issue. I didn't mention the actual title because, well, the next sentence I say will make you do what you did to Dan Slott the December before last.
WOLVERINE IS GOING TO DIE.
I'm actually surprised that Wolverine is getting the boot NOW of all times. Af…
Superior. One word, and Spider-Man fans across the country get caught up in neo-Western stand-offs (anyone a friend of Jonah Hex? The Lone Ranger? Somebody?). Over the course of what has been EXACTLY 15 months, it has been the focal point of all Marvel fans who actually read the comics (no matter how few there are) - and those who watched the second episode of the seventh season of The Big Bang Theory and happened to look the story up online. But now that it's over, what do we think of the comics in the series? What DID we think? What WILL we think? Well, I'm going to go ahead and give my opinions in the first of eight blog posts dedicated to each of the main series titles.
Please note, THERE ARE SPOILERS!
