DR. STRANGE #48-50: Stephen and Morgana

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY released some pictures from the Benedict Cumberbatch DOCTOR STRANGE movie. Rachel McAdams will be in it, but will she be playing Morgana Blessing? And who is Morgan Blessing, you may ask?

"Morgana Blessing was the sort of woman that Doc would have had a relationship with, in his previous career as a high-priced surgeon. She was the Earthly love, in contrast with the ethereal, extradimensional Clea. All the regular readers loved Clea, of course, but the relationship she and Doc had was not exactly an enlightened one. If Clea had just been Doc's lover that would have been okay, but she'd also become his student, his disciple. It was a case of 'I love you, Clea.' 'And I love you, Master.' And not in a sweet, innocent, I Dream of Jeanie way, either. Not a healthy relationship, not healthy at all." - Roger Stern

Bendis' Daredevil Part 8: Golden Age



'Golden Age' is one of my favorite arcs from Bendis' and Maleev's run on Daredevil. It's just a great combination of writing from Bendis and art from Maleev. It's also largely a stand-alone story so you just need to be familiar with the basic concept of Daredevil being outed as Matt Murdock and later declaring himself the 'Kingpin' of Hell's Kitchen.

Villains Being Awesome: Magneto goes bad... again.

UNCANNY X-MEN #275. Magneto, Rogue and Nick Fury vs. Zaladane and Savage Land Mutates. Zaladane has a machine that is stealing Magneto's power for her. (Some wonder if this story means Zaladane is Magneto's daughter, as Lorna Dane is Zaladane's sister.)

I am not Charles Xavier. )

Remember the time the Howling Commandos (accidently?) nuked Germany?

No, really, it actually happened.

I realize that when you're trying to write a family friendly comic about WWII, there are times where it's hard to know where to draw the line, but, seriously, Stan, what  were you smoking that day?

Nick Fury and Yuri Brevlov: A Bromance that Transcends the Iron Curtain

In 1968 Marvel created a fantastic character called Yuri Brevlov, who was basically the USSR's Nick Fury. He and Fury had a Team Up in the Incredible Hulk. It was awesome. Then, Marvel pretty much forgot about him (I could only track down a small appearance in the 80s).


Marvel needs to bring this man back. I will show you why.
