The new ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ trailer just tells you the entire plot

Spider-Man’s had a pretty wibbly cinema history, and time isn’t helping it. “Spider-Man 3” is held in better regard now, while Andrew Garfield’s “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise is pretty well disregarded now (despite having a lot of strong elements!). Still, Tom Holland’s brief turn as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War” was pretty significant, the first showing of the character …

‘Nova’ ends with a bang and a bright future

I remember not caring much for Sam Alexander when he became Nova back in 2011. It seemed to me like a silly marketing ploy to sell more books to kids who were watching the recently announced¬†Ultimate Spider-Man series. The stories were fine, ultimately, but he just didn’t resonate with me at first. But over the years, Sam’s become an interesting …

All-New Wolverine #1 – A clone’s destiny

When Marvel announced they were killing Wolverine last year, I was skeptical. After all, it's not only comics, it's an X-Man. Hell, it's THE X-Man. Even in death, Wolverine's an insanely popular character, so kudos to Marvel for sticking to their guns and letting Logan stay six feet under. But it's not the Marvel U without a Wolverine, and while they're cheating a bit by having a universe displaced Old Man Logan show up in Extraordinary X-Men, it's been decided that the mantle would go down to Wolverine's clone Laura Kinney, formerly known as X-23.

The Vision #1 – Do synthezoids dream of families?

The last time we saw The Vision proper was in the Avengers special a month or two back where we learned he had wiped his emotions to keep his systems functioning properly. As a result, it's very jarring to see The Vision now residing in Arlington as the Avengers liason to the government. But that feeling may be intentional.
