How the Suicide Squad Team photo sold me on the DC Cinematic Universe

The Suicide Squad was not one of the big comic movies I was looking forward to when I thought about the extensive upcoming slate of superhero movies over the next few years. In fact if you had asked me to list all the superhero movies coming up I would have almost certainly left it out, even after the excitement… » 5/03/15 11:38pm 27 minutes ago

Inside Secret Wars: A Look at the "Battleworld" Books

Personally, I’m of the opinion that it’s better than Avengers, and around the same level as Guardians of the Galaxy (which I rank second to Captain America: The Winter Soldier) among the Marvel Cinematic Universe… » 5/03/15 12:06am Yesterday 12:06am

20 Years Later, Age of Apocalypse Remains a Bright Light of the '90's

The 1990’s are not a time comic book fans remember with joy, especially if you were a Marvel fan.
