She-Hulk got hurt early on in Civil War II and has spent much of the last few months in a coma, unaware of the tragic fate that befell her cousin. The gamma-irradiated lawyer recently woke up from her near-death state with scars all over her face and body. Now, she’s going to be the star of Hulk, a new ongoing title…
Suffice to say, if you’re a member of the gamma-radiated family in Marvel’s comics at the moment, now isn’t exactly a happy time.
Christmas is a time of bringing people together—usually, with copious amounts of food, booze, and gifts. The Gwenpool Holiday Special might sound like a zany stunt comic, focusing on Marvel’s latest female star, but it’s really about togetherness, and uniting Marvel heroes big and small.
The other day, comic-book fans got an amazing piece of news: the beloved Y the Last Man is not going to be shoehorned into movie form, but will get to live and breathe as a TV show. Even though comics rule movies these days, some of them are just too big for a two-hour package.
We’re in the midst of a superheroine Golden Age. When even Squirrel-Girl can score her own comic book, and it’s awesome, you know times are (relatively) good for super-ladies.

Agent Carter is here and damn if she doesn't hit the ground running (in pumps no less). It's all style and substance - and a helluvalotta Marvel references to boot! Let's unpack the first SSR case file and see how SHIELD's prequel miniseries ties to She-Hulk, Iron Man and the rest of the Marvel U!
We always want to share the things we love with our friends, coworkers and family members — that's human nature. And it's a generous impulse, the desire to share. But how can you introduce your most beloved TV shows, movies, comics and books to people without turning them off? Here's a step-by-step guide.
I'm thoroughly digging She-Hulk. She's struck out on her own, hanging a shingle and bringing in clients, both super and mundane. It gives her comic an episodic feel, while providing superhero action in a variety of settings. (And any comic that passes the Bechdel test is a winner in my book.) Spoilers below!
I know there's already been a huge amount of discussion on this subject but I thought it was worth sharing what Jennifer's analytical cousin had to say on the subject, especially since I'd heard it was pretty good. And indeed it was.
It's official: The most exciting new genre shows on network TV are based on comics. iZombie, Constantine, Flash, Gotham... But the networks are just scratching the surface of what's out there. Here are 10 comics that are crying out to become television shows right now.
These days, Marvel has a pretty amazing track record on the big screen. Even if you toss in the films produced by Sony or Fox, most of the movies range from okay to superb. But things could have turned out very, very different. Here are 10 bizarre Marvel film projects that were in development at one point.
That's the premise of Rob Williams and Simon Coleby's new Vertigo comic Royals: Masters of War. In this alt-history, royal blood bestows superpowers, but these kings and queens have an agreement to never join their respective wars — that is, until World War II forces England's Prince Harry to take action. All that and…
Labor Day isn't just an excuse to barbecue or squeeze in one last trip to the beach; it's also the day we remember the contributions of workers to society. These scifi, fantasy, and superheroines pay tribute to the wartime labor icon Rosie the Riveter—and show off their guns.
A rash of Hulk attacks continues with a "She Hulk" accused of running wild in a McDonald's and smashing a teenaged girl. The red-haired assailant, covered in green body paint and wearing ripped clothes, was captured on closed-circuit security cameras in York, England, but police have yet to catch the monster.
We all know the Marvel cinematic universe is kicking ass, and shows no signs of slowing down; their upcoming films include Guardians of the Galaxy, Dr. Strange, and possibly even the Inhumans! Since the Inhumans are basically X-Men on LSD, you might think that there’s no superhero Marvel can’t make a movie of. Au…
It's still a little weird to say out loud, but The CW's Green Arrow show Arrow is good. Like, really good. Like, a perfect match of superheroics, accessibility and non-superheroic drama for mass audiences, and with no need for budget-busting special effects. It's possibly the perfect superhero TV show, and it got us…
Art nouveau heroines are the latest trend among fan artists, but Hanie Mohd has added a fashionable touch, draping Marvel's superheroines in long, flowing dresses based on their slim-fitting costumes.
With The Avengers hitting theaters this summer, audiences are eagerly anticipating a chiseled parade of superhuman beefcake saving the world, not unlike if the Chippendales were conscripted as U.N. Peacekeepers. But did you know that Marvel Comics actually rated The Avengers according to hotness two decades ago?
Call me crazy, but I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that Marvel and DC didn't sign off on these Mozambican print spots depicting comicdom's foremost superheroines mid-breast exam.
