Reinterpretation's a matter of a twist sometimes.

Gold Key: Alliance #3 showed this in the part focusing on its Magnus, Robot Fighter.

Not with him directly- he was already a straightforward translation to the present day- but with one he saw.

That one came to him in the midst of a fight.

It came to him in a punch. )

The New Avengers #13 - "A.I.M. Vs. S.H.I.E.L.D. Part II: Part of the Team"

"That’s the most unsettling thing about the Maker--that he started out as Reed Richards, the man who started it all in 1961 and was Marvel’s greatest and least fallible hero. If someone like Reed can be twisted towards evil, what chance do any of us have?" -- Al Ewing

Cosplay(ers) and Crossovers!

San Diego Comic Con may be over, and like most years there were a lot of really cool and unique cosplayers in coatume. Here are some images I've found that I hope you will enjoy (though not all of them are from Comic-Con)! If you know anyone in the photos or are actually one of the people here, feel free to introduce yourself.
I do not claim responsibility for any of the pictures under the cut - I don't know who any of these people are nor did I take their photographs. )

Evil Empire #2

"I was inspired a lot by, and I know this is a controversial book for some readers, but “Crossed,” the Avatar book? I think it hits home for so many people, considering how freaking crazy it is, is that beyond the initial outbreak in that we don’t really know why everyone has turned into sociopaths or depraved deviants, everything that happens around it is super realistic. When someone is disembowled, it looks really real and it feels threatening. That actually figured into my thoughts; what if you take away the component of “this couldn’t happen because there is no plague-like outbreak,” what if it was just people doing it because they wanted to do it? Because people are fucked up?"

Off Topic Tuesday!

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

So... ummmm;

SDCC happened (That's sort of on topic, but what the hey)

News occurred

Politics.... took place

Kittens remain adorable

Killing Joke Post-film discussion

While it leaked online a few days ago the movie had a theatrical screening tonight and it becomes legally available for purchase tomorrow so I thought I'd make this thread.

Spoilers )

Green Arrow #1-2


"When I first began writing Green Arrow, I kept Oliver out of costume as often as I could in order to emphasize the man.

He is a 25-year-old man. He doesn't quite know who he is. He's troubled. He's not sure of himself romantically. He's not sure of himself heroically. I wanted, gradually, as he struggles over this last arc especially with his sense of self, this war arc with his sense of self. I wanted Green Arrow to slowly take over Oliver Queen. It isn't until Rebirth that he finally truly lives up to the title. To me, this is an incredibly exciting moment. One where the dam breaks.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 to have... HER!

On one hand, I get it. Marvel Studios has the right to make changes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Jane Foster is an astro-physicist instead of a nurse-turned-doctor. Johann Schmidt was a scientist instead of a bellboy. Maria Hill doesn't start fights for no reason. Still...

Also confirmed was the casting of Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, A.K.A. Karma, A.K.A. Her, A.K.A. Kismet, who in comic books is a product of the same experiments that created Adam Warlock (A.K.A. Him) before ascending to cosmic power. According to Gunn, Ayesha comes from a “genetically-perfect people” named the Sovereign. She serves as their High Priestess and "is not a woman to be screwed with.”

When Adam Warlock met Her. Also, MCU speculation )

PVP - Listening

The webcomic PVP is addressing how to be an ally if you're not sure how tostart (at least I hope that's where it's going)

If I’m talking I’m not listening, and it’s time to listen )

Evil Empire #1

"The basic idea is that we're doing the prequel to every genre movie ever that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, where an evil empire is ruling the world: "The Matrix," "Star Wars," even if you want to expand a little bit, there's "The Walking Dead," where there's some kind of supernatural force involved. There's always something that has taken over the world, some kind of dark leader, and a smarmy rebel has to come and save the world. This is usually where a lot of movies and comic books start. We thought, "How can you tell the story of our modern society evolving into this megalomaniacal, post-apocalyptic, evil empire?"

NS: The story behind Joker's new tattoos

I'm really looking forward to Jared Leto as the Joker but like many people I'm a bit turned off by his new tattoos. Here's a cartoon from last year that shows what might have happened when he went to the tattoo parlor.
