Miles Morales to appear in upcoming episodes of “Ultimate Spider-Man”

News came that Miles Morales will be appearing in upcoming episodes of Disney XD’s series “Ultimate Spider-Man.” This particular incarnation of Spidey on TV features a fourth-wall-breaking Peter Parker being trained in heroics by Nick Fury of SHIELD. Peter isn’t alone in his training; accompanying him in training are fellow teen heroes Luke Cage, White Tiger, Nova, and Iron Fist. The show’s currently on its third season, and has renamed itself “Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors.” This season features Peter joining the Avengers, and a storyline involving Peter…

Sam Wilson as Captain America

Why diversity among A-listers matters: the new Thor and Captain America

Much has been written about this by everyone else over the past week, but I guess I’m obligated to chime in as well. Marvel’s announced plans to replace Captain America and Thor. For Thor, a woman will be assuming the role of the Mighty One after Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer) rejects him as being “unworthy” of the role. For Captain America, Steve Rogers is forced to retire after his Super Soldier Serum’s somehow removed, causing him to age into an elderly man. Cap’s replacement: the Falcon (aka…

Anthony’s Marvel picks for July 2013

Here’s what’s of interest coming out from Marvel for July 2013. Full solicitations are available here. Comics Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #25, $4 Trade paperbacks None. Comments I admit my reading of Marvel’s slacked off lately; thus the lack of “picks.” This includes keeping up with Miles Morales’ book. I’ve been attempting to wait for the trade paperback versions of “Ultimate Comics Spider-Man” in an attempt to save money (by borrowing them from the public library). There’s also that Barnes and Noble doesn’t carry much of…

Comments This month’s Ultimate Spidey brings the Ultimate versions of…Power Pack. In the regular Marvel Universe, they’re a group of kid siblings who fight crime with superpowers. Can only imagine what their “Ultimate” versions will be like (cynical teenagers?).

Anthony’s Marvel picks for May 2013

Here’s what’s of interest from Marvel for May 2013. Full solicitations are available here. Comics Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #23, on sale May 15, $4 Trade paperbacks None. Comments Marvel seems well in the grip of the latest mega-storyline, “Age of Ultron.” This month’s “Ultimate Comics Spider-Man” cover seems to mimic the various “Spider-Man No More” stories… plus probably fits the line of various other “a superhero quits” covers.

Comics Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #22, $4 Trade paperbacks Spider-Man: Danger Zone (TPB), $20 Spider-Men (TPB), $20 Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, volume 3 (TPB), $20 Comments This month sees mass quantities of whatever the heck “Age of Ultron” is about. In case anyone forgot who Ultron is like I did, here’s his Wikipedia entry. Very long story short, “evil robot.” Meanwhile, last year’s “Spider-Men” five-part crossover between Peter Parker and Miles Morales is being collected. Not read it…

New Ultimate Marvel Spider-Man revealed to be biracial teen

No spoilers warning, since this story’s already all over every other website by now… Since its debut in 2000, I admit I haven’t paid a ton of attention to Marvel’s Ultimate line of books. Ultimate Marvel is an alternate universe (to the mainstream Marvel one) that’s meant to be easier to get into, with less history/continuity than the usual Marvel stuff. However, what stories (or story summaries) I’d seen felt too much like regular current superhero books to me, i.e. “grim and gritty”-fied versions of…
