Marvel Agents of Shield

Okay, we are five episodes into Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and I have to say, I dig it. Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson genuinely looks like he is having a blast as he chews through the scenery. I love the nods to the movies and seeing both Maria Hill and Nick Fury earlier in the season was shocking (I figured we’d get one, both both? Awesome.). The show feels like it is firmly set in the Marvel movie universe and I love that we’re getting to see more of the said universe. What will happen when the new Thor movie is released? Will we see any of the supporting characters? How about the big guy himself?

My only complaint so far is that the rest of the team needs to be fleshed out a bit more. I want to know more about them. Fitz and Simmons are a lot of fun, Agent May has shown shades of her dark past, but why should we root for Agent Ward or Skye? Neither have drawn me in the way past Whedon leads have. They don’t have the Buffy and Angel chemistry, Captain Mal’s wit, or Echo’s mysterious past and circumstances. Than again, we have plenty of time to learn more about the team and I’ll be along for the ride.

Official Description, “Girl in the Flower Dress”: Coulson and the team travel to Asia to rescue a young man with an unusual and dangerous power. Meanwhile, Skye has a secret that jeopardizes her relationship with the team.

Superman Issue 24 and 25

Recently we previewed the first two issues of Superman/Wonder Woman and “Villains Month” issues featuring Doomsday and H’el. But don’t I hate DC Comic’s “New 52”? No. I don’t hate it. I just hate how they went about the reboot. I felt like I never got closure for the old DC Comics universe. That years and years of great stories just built to no natural conclusion. That is something I still hate and hope that they one day resolve. After two years I do have to get over it if I want to enjoy Superman in comic form ever again, right?

Superman #24 is the conclusion of “Psi War” and it looks like it is leading directly into a new story about Krypton. How will this compare to the old universe’s “Return to Krypton”? From the cover of issue #25, it looks like we very well may be seeing Jor-El alive in some form or another? Time travel? Alternate universe? I wonder if this would be a good jumping on point for a new “old” reader?

Superman #24Official Description: “Psi War” comes to a shocking conclusion as one of the people closest to Superman becomes a casualty—and then, cometh the Oracle to tell Superman that Krypton lives once more!

Superman #25
Official Description: “KRYPTON RETURNS” concludes! Months before its explosion, Superman finds himself locked in combat against H’El! Can he find a way to save the planet? A most unexpected foe stands in his path: Jor-El! A hero will fall during this epic adventure!

DC Comics publishes issue 24 tomorrow Wednesday October 23rd, and issue 25 hits stands on November 27th.

Superman Wonder Woman Issue 1 and 2

One of the more intriguing aspects of DC Comic’s “New 52” relaunch has been the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman. One of the biggest “missed opportunities” of the DC Universe that started in the 80s was that these two icons never got together. Now we get to see it play out without the bond of “Lois and Clark” in the way. Throwing them together into a new series is an interesting way to explore the relationship, I just hope it is organic and that this title has an effect of the each of their other books. Throwing Doomsday into the mix as a big bad is a fun move. Did you check out Doomsday’s origin as part of “Villain’s Month”?

Superman/Wonder Woman #1
Official Description: Beginning a bold new series that details the relationship between The Man of Steel and the Warrior Princess as rising star writer Charles Soule is joined by fan favorite artist Tony S. Daniel to tell the tale of a romance that will shake the stars themselves. These two super-beings love each other, but not everyone shares their joy. Some fear it, some test it—and some will try to kill for it. Some say love is a battlefield, but where Superman and Wonder Woman are concerned it spells Doomsday!

This issue features an amazing wraparound gatefold cover that opens up to a triptych with Superman and Wonder Woman in the center!

Superman/Wonder Woman #2
Official Description: Whom the gods destroy, first they piss off! Seeking help against Doomsday, Diana turns to her brother Hephaestus for weapons—but a more immediate threat is Apollo and the other gods. They do not approve of Superman as a consort to Diana, and he will have to prove himself in combat!

Issue #1 comes out on October 9th with issue #2 out on November 13, 2013, from DC Comics.

Superman 23.3, Batman Superman 3.1

It is no secret that I hate that DC Comics relaunched with the “New 52” with little regard to fans or the characters. I get wanting to do something new and big to attract a new audience, and it has been successful in that right. But there was a way they could have done it by taking their time and bringing out ongoing series to natural conclusions, instead of just ending everything abruptly with the “Flashpoint” crossover. Sure, some titles like Batman and Green Lantern kept going like nothing had changed, but character like Superman who were altered greatly did not have a satisfying end. And that is a shame. </rant>

That being said, DC Comics has actually been doing some interesting stuff, including this month’s “Forever Evil” and “Villains Month”, where every title has been taken over by a villain, showing us their place in the New 52, or like for Doomsday above, shedding new light on his 52 Origin. H’el is one of the few new Superman villains in recent years to catch my attention. A Krypton villain who is powerful and ruthless- like ow Zod used to be. I just might be intrigued enough to pick up these two titles. Maybe. We’ll see.

Superman #23.3
Official Description: After his last battle with Superman, H’el wakes up on Krypton years before it is destroyed! Can H’el manipulate the Science Counsel, soldiers and countless others including Jor-El, to save the planet? And what does it mean for the birth of Superman if he succeeds?

Batman/Superman #3.1
Official Description: Long before Superman fought the unstoppable monster known as Doomsday, the beast’s reputation for death and destruction haunted The Man of Steel’s home world of Krypton.

Superman #23.3 hit stores last week while Batman/Superman #3.1 comes out on Wednesday September 25th, 2013. Both from DC Comics. Superman is written by Scott Lobdell with art by  Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund. Batman/Superman is written by Greg Pak with art by Brett Booth.

Have you been following the New 52? What has stood out? What would you change?

Deadpool has reached the halfway mark with part three of the five part “The good, the bad and the ugly” arc as writer Brian Edmund Posehn sheds new light on the Merc with the Mouth’s origin. Joining the anti-hero are Avengers Captain America and Wolverine, both of whom are tired to Deadpool’s past. All are joined as weird siblings of sorts due to the Super Soldier/Weapon X/Weapon Plus programs. How do you think this will all come together?

Deadpool #17
Official Description: In the heart of the enemy’s clutches, Deadpool meets some uncanny friends…Captain America & Wolverine get sucked into the mystery of Deadpool’s past.

The issue hits stands on Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 from Marvel Comics.
