6 Things I’m Looking Forward to from Marvel in April 2017

Captain America #15 ResurrXion variant cover by David Maquez

Marvel is killing it with Inhumans vs. X-Men right now and my favorite thing about it is after the event, we’re going to get ResurrXion and a whole bunch of new X-Men titles. If you haven’t heard, I’m a big X-Men fan, so it’s an exciting time to be me right now. The new crop of X-Men comics start with …

All-New All-Different Marvel - All-New All-Different Avengers #1

We’re going to get 45 new #1 comic book issues that will feature both relaunched and brand new titles. Here’s a full list of all 45 titles including their creative teams and my all-important (no, not really) thoughts on this all-new yet still very familiar …

X-Feels – Battle of the Atom, Nightcrawler, and the End of X-Factor

X-Factor - Final Issue

Last week, the X-Men celebrated their 50th anniversary. That’s half a century since X-Men #1 hit the stands. That kind of milestone deserves a celebration of epic proportions and with Battle of the Atom, I feel that we’re getting everything we love about the X-Men. But before we go into Battle of the Atom, let me just tell you about …

The War Has Begun – Avengers vs. X-Men #0 and #1

We’ve experienced the hype. We’ve suffered through all the debates and discussions about what the event is all about. We’ve read issues #0 and #1 of Avengers vs. X-Men (if you haven’t, be warned — here be SPOILERS). The war has officially begun and here’s what I think about what’s happened so far. The Scarlet Witch Goes Solo She’s back …

Wolverine and the X-Men #1 Review

Wolverine and the X-Men #1 - Wolverine and Kitty Pryde

X-Men: Schism is over and the mutants have chosen sides. Now the X-Men are back in school as X-Men: Regenesis kicks into high gear with Wolverine and the X-Men #1. The most endearing thing about the X-Men is the element of mutant teenagers going to mutant school to learn about stuff but mostly to fight off whoever’s attacking the school …

10 Great Moments from X-Men: Schism

X-Men: Schism - Cyclops vs. Wolverine

X-Men: Schism, the 5-issue mini-series designed to break the X-Men in two, has just wrapped up and what a ride it’s been. It’s one of the best X-Men stories I’ve ever read for a lot of reasons. It’s a story with Sentinels, psychotic kids and a brutal fight between Cyclops and Wolverine. Writer Jason Aaron has crafted a story that …

Now that all the shadows have been eliminated, let’s break down who’s on whose side of the fence after X-Men: Schism.

Uncanny X-Men #1 Cover: No More Silhouettes

X-Men: Regenesis - Uncanny X-Men #1 Cover

When I was trying to figure out who the shadows are in the Uncanny X-Men #1 teaser, I said I saw Magneto, Namor and possibly Magik and Colossus. Also, I hoped that the pair of feet behind Emma Frost was Cyclops. Now, thanks to a leak, I know that Magneto, Magik and Colossus are indeed in that image. Most importantly, …

X-Men: Regenesis Guessing Game

X-Men: Regenesis - Uncanny X-Men

While everybody else is freaking out about the thought of the DC universe (as we know it) ending this week, I’m meticulously poring over the X-Men: Regenesis teasers. It looks like we’re getting 8 X-Men team books after Schism with Team Cyclops and Team Wolverine getting 4 books each. You say “WTF, that’s a lot of mutant books!” but I …

My Top 10 Comic Book Movies with Ratings by Dr. Doom

Top 10 Comic Book Movies - Batman Begins

After seeing Captain America: The First Avenger, I realized that I have yet to establish a top 10 list of my favorite comic book movies. I already did a similar list with Coco Collantes and Bim Barbieto via Cinemabuzz, Face Rockery and Comicology, but that was 3 years ago. A lot of comic book movies have already been released since …
