Stingray is Alive and Kicking!

Good news, everybody! Stingray is alive and well! He’s one of my favorite comic book characters, and one of the characters that is so rare that I like to catalog his appearances when he does show up. And Stingray shows up for a quick bit in the new issue of Iron Man 2020!

What’s even better is that he’s still alive by the end of the scene! That sort of thing isn’t guaranteed these days.

Stingray was last scene in Jason Aaron’s Avengers comic, where he barely survived an attack by Namor’s sharks! So I’m very happy to report that he recovered from the attack and went right back to being a nautical superhero!

Today’s a good day.

Kurt Busiek is Just Gonna Go Hog Wild with The Marvels!

Kurt Busiek is probably one of the best comic book writers and world-builders of all time. He’s the mastermind behind Astro City, a masterpiece of superhero comic storytelling that I highly recommend. Now he’s coming back to Marvel comics to do a big “anyone, anywhere, any time” adventure that spans decades!

Behold The Marvels!

Just look at Alex Ross being all fancy!

Specific details on the story are scarce, but Busiek had a lot to say in an interview at Marvel.com. He’s going to use big heroes and obscure heroes, he’s going to tell big stories and small stories. He’s going to look at these characters as people and he’s going to span from the past to the far future.

He’s just going to go big and have fun, and I love that idea!

How about some preview art?

Busiek is also responsible for Marvels back in 1994, another masterpiece of comic book storytelling that focused on the classic Marvel heroes. Honestly, the guy is a legend, and letting him play in the entire Marvel toybox for whatever insane story he has in mind sounds glorious to me!

The Marvels comes out in May, with art by Yildiray Cinar.

The U.S. Agent is Proud to Be an American!

A leaked picture of the U.S. Agent costume from the upcoming The Falcon and the Winter Soldier TV show has hit the internet and I approve! Sometimes live action superhero costumes can be tricky, but the Marvel Studios people know what they’re doing and they’ve done it again with U.S. Agent!

This was our first look at the costume, some concept art released a couple of months ago.

This is just a preview

I wanted to hold the actual picture for after the jump, just because some people might not want to be spoiled. I don’t mind costume spoilers, because sometimes you can tell whether or not a property is going to be good based on the costume. As soon as we all saw Halle Berry’s Catwoman costume we know that movie was going to be hot garbage.

But Wyatt Russell as U.S. Agent looks awesome! Join me after the jump to check out the picture.

6 Things I Want to See in the Black Widow Movie

The first trailer for the upcoming Black Widow movie came out of nowhere last week, and I liked it! Of course, I’m a huge Marvel fanboy, so I’m probably going to like everything they produce from now until the heat death of the universe. So you best believe I’m excited for Black Widow!

Black Widow See List 01

That’s some good movie poster

But what’s going to be in the movie? We know it takes place prior to Avengers: Infinity War. We know Taskmaster is the villain, and that Natasha will team up with the other comic book Black Widow, as well as Red Guardian. And we know it’s going to be heavy on the crazy action and adventure. There’s probably also going to be some trouble with the Red Room.

Still, there’s a lot of movie left wide open for cameos, Easter Eggs, callbacks and more. So join me after the jump for the little things I’d like to see in the Black Widow movie! And feel free to share some of your own ideas in the comments!

First Black Widow Trailer, Outta Nowhere!

The next Marvel movie is Black Widow, a trip into the past to explore Natasha’s spy life in Russia. Black Widow comes out on May 1 and we haven’t seen too much news…until Marvel decided to randomly and awesomely release the first trailer! And it’s a trailer packed with stuff!

Looks awesome! David Harbour obviously steals the show as Red Guardian. But we’ve got a good look at Taskmaster! And the other Black Widow. And our main Black Widow looks great in a white costume!

Word has it this takes place shortly after Captain America: Civil War, which sounds good to me! What an exciting surprise this trailer was today!
