The latest Civil War trailer has very little new footage in, but we what do have? A great Iron Man and Winter Soldier run in and the first look of Ant-Man’s new look in the movie.
Ever since Miles Morales took the role of Spider-Man over from Peter Parker, he’s had to fight his supervillain uncle, he’s seen his entire universe get destroyed, and he’s become one of the most prominent heroes in Marvel’s push for diversity. But now that he’s joined the main Marvel universe in his new series,…
There is an evil man in New York who preys on the gullible. He’s a flamboyant showboat. He lacks scruples. He cares for nothing but his own gain. I speak, of course, of Annoying Orange progenitor Donald Trump—so let’s meet the Marvel villain who shares the same name.
The Star Wars universe is bigger than ever, thanks to Disney’s new mandate that everything that gets published is in canon, along with the movies. But if all you’ve done is watch the movies and TV shows, there’s a whole half of the universe you’re missing.
Something strange has happened in the endless war for domination of superhero movies. After years of Marvel ceaselessly kicking DC’s ass, I feel as though DC has suddenly taken the lead, thanks to the fantastic new Suicide Squad trailer and the Wonder Woman movie footage. What is even happening?
Marvel finally did it. Eight months after it began, Secret Wars came to a close today, after nine issues of reality-bending madness. No idea what the fuss is?

By the hoary hosts of hoggoth, it’s the Sorcerer Supreme! We’ve had set pictures, and teasing glimpses through concept art, but this is it: our first official look at how Benedict Cumberbatch will appear as the master of all things mystical in the Marvel universe. That beard. That cloak. That magic! Oh my.
Scott Summers has not been in Marvel’s new X-Men books. Okay, well, his time-displaced teen self has, but that’s a long story for another time. But while Cyclops has been absent, he’s had a very strong presence in the X-Men’s current adventure—for very bad reasons. And his latest moment is no exception.
Darth Vader is many things—tragic villain, almighty horror, dab hand with a lightsaber—but he is not a dancer. Thanks the the Darth Vader Annual, we now know that this is what happens when you’re stupid enough to insist that the Dark Lord of the Sith take you for a twirl on the dance floor.
It’s been a remarkable year for comics. Huge publishers like DC and Marvel have rejuvenated their line-ups with tons of amazing books; beyond the big two, there’s been some of the most compelling, challenging material in the industry we’ve seen in years. It was hard to narrow it down, but here’s 20 of 2015’s best.
The release of Star Wars in 1977 was an absolute gamechanger, on so many levels—from effects, to toys, and to how expanded universes were created in general. But Star Wars was also of vital importance to an unexpected ally in Marvel Comics. Without the galaxy far, far, away, they might have vanished for good.
Our first look at the next generation of X-Men is here—and things aren’t looking too hot for Charles Xavier and his friends, old and new. Apocalypse has come to wreak... errr, the Apocalypse!
Plenty of media narratives touch on trauma and recovery nowadays, and PTSD has become a common trope. But in real life, everybody deals with trauma differently—and Marvel’s new series Jessica Jones actually shows the vast array of responses that people can have to traumatic events.
You’ve seen the trailer and basked in its glory. It’s huge-cast, heroes-fighting-heroes glory. Now it’s time to slow down and figure out what it all means. Spoilers in the form of references to rumor and theory ahead.
The first trailer for Captain America: Civil War is here. It’s Iron Man vs. Captain America and holy crap this looks awesome.
This weekend, the world met the whiskey-drinking, super-powered Hell’s Kitchen detective known as Jessica Jones. She’s the star of the second Netflix Marvel superhero show, leading into the team-up series The Defenders, and many people spent their weekends on the couch, devouring all 13 episodes.
One thing that keeps occurring to me while watching Agents of SHIELD lately: This show is pretty much 100 percent serialized now, with huge elements of soap opera as well as ongoing plot strands. There’s zero “monster of the week” stuff. That’s been true for a long time, but lately the show is doing this incredibly…
Pop culture is full of weak villains with nonsense origins. And the latest James Bond film, Spectre, was Exhibit A for “villains ruined by ridiculous new backstories.” But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are 10 villains who actually have origins that make them better and more monstrous.
Okay. So Halloween might be behind us, and I can’t quite believe I’m saying this about a Marvel comic—especially one starring the Avenging Android that was one of the most charming parts of Age of Ultron.
