deadpool-17

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?

X-Factor Issue 262

It is with a heavy heart that I write that X-Factor, one of Marvel’s most consistent, entertaining and best written series, has come to an end. Yesterday, X-Factor #262 hit stores and with it part 6 of “The End of X-Factor”, a very literal end as the series has come to a natural conclusion by longtime writer Peter David. The series set itself part from the X-Universe and the larger Marvel universe by somehow making mutants, time travel, demons, and even Gods somehow more grounded.

The twists and turns kept coming as characters came and left throughout the years, but the core team- all of which were secondary characters, were brought front and center by David and through his writing any one of them would be capable of leading their own series. There is a bittersweet element to the 6 part “The End of X-Factor” arch that closed out the series. Each issue we’ve gotten a look (a coda of sorts) at where each character is following “Hell on Earth”. As much as a love seeing the characters where they are post X-Factor, I’d much rather have seen them all together, at least one last time. Maybe issue 262 will do just that, but I doubt it.

X-Factor #626
Official Description: The end of X-Factor!

Peter David has left X-Factor behind before and returned in the past, maybe he’ll do the same in the future. We can only hope… Maybe Layla Miller could let us know?

X-Men: Battle of the Atom 1

Here we go! X-Men: Battle of the Atom is here. After 15 issues of All-New X-Men with the original team in the present fighting to fix “their future” and the fall out from “X-Men vs Avengers” felt deeply in Uncanny X-Men, and Wolverine’s continued growth along with the future generation of mutants in Wolverine and the X-Men, we have a lot coming to head in the first crossover that will take us through these books to deal with the consequences of time travel. A future team of X-Men will be coming to the present in an effort to set things right” and get the original X-Men to return to their time, but there is much more going on with sentinels (as seen above) and a mystery villain from the future.

Deadpool Kills Deadpool Issue 1

Recently we took a look at an epic battle and tried to figure out who would win in a fight between the Marvel Comic anti-hero Deadpool and the DC Comics villain Deathstroke. People are very split on the results. Now, Marvel is presenting an even harder question; who would win in a fight of Deadpool vs Deadpool… Wait, what?

Deadpool Kills Deadpool is an all new four part limited series from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Salva Espin. It is the final limited series in a trilogy of four parters dubbed “The Deadpool Killogy” that began in “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe” where he went on a rampage and took out Marvel’s big guns, and continued in “Deadpool Killustrated” where the Merc with a Mouth took out such literary classic characters as Moby Dick, Tom Sawyer, Scrooge, the Three Musketeers, and Sherlock Holmes. Now, Deadpool is jumping across universes to kill all of the versions of himself that are out there. So get ready for Deadpool vs Deadpool vs Deadpool vs Deadpool. Maybe after he clears out these versions of himself he’ll head to the DC Comics universe and take on Deathstroke?

Deadpool Kills Deadpool #1 (of 4)
Official Description: The final act of the Deadpool Killogy begins! Deadpool sets his sites on the ultimate target…himself! Contains over 700% of your daily recommended Deadpool!

Marvel Comics The Superior Foes of Spider-Man issue 1

If the “Superior Spider-Man” is a villain in a hero’s body, shouldn’t the “Superior Foes of Spider-Man” be heroes in villain’s bodies? In the very least, shouldn’t they be A-List villains and not baddies like Boomerang, Shocker, Speed Demon, the Beetle, and Overdrive? (wait, who the heck are Speed Demon, the Beetle, and Overdrive?)

These “sinister” jokers would get their @$$es handed to them by an actual Sinister Six. The original team in 1964 included Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Mysterio, and Sandman and various versions included such characters as Venom, Lizard, Chameleon, and Hobgoblin. Any of these guys, minus the very busy Doctor Octopus aka Superior Spider-Man, would make a better choice to lead a new Sinister Six and headline a book of villains than Boomerang. Writer Nick Spencer and artist Steve Lieber have a tall mountain to climb, so it should be interesting to see where this new ongoing title goes.

The Superior Foes of Spider-Man #1
Official Description: BRAND NEW ON-GOING! Boomerang and some of Spidey’s deadliest baddies prove that with terrible powers come terrible responsibilities! Rising Star Nick Spencer teams with Eisner Award winning sensation Steve Lieber for a walk on the Spider-Verse’s evil side!

Take a look at this new “superior” ongoing series when it comes out on Wednesday July 3rd, 2013 from Marvel Comics. When will we see the Superior Spider-Man vs the new Sinister Six in the book? Pick up the first issue and maybe you’ll see!
