Roxxon's not a good corporation.

It's a great one, a giant in the acquisition of and profiting from sources of energy.

It's a bad one, an octopus with no inclinations against crushing and sweeping aside everything in its way.

It employed the telepath Mentallo to protect its expedition to Monster Island, which it'd bought from Japan so that it could have at all its oil deposits.

It was consequently embarrassed when Mentallo had the rest of the expedition killed and demanded eight million dollars to relinquish the control he had over the island and its giant inhabitants.

It was more so when the ransom was paid.

So, as the X-Men found themselves dealing with Mentallo, Roxxon dealt with the man who'd paid it over.

The dealing was a final one. )

MARVEL: All Gwen Stacy, all the time

For June 2015, Marvel is doing alternate covers of Gwen Stacy as other Marvel Superheroes.

One looks like Illyana. )

Avengers #35: "The Three Avengers"

"This is kind of the opposite of what I did with FANTASTIC FOUR, what I’m doing with AVENGERS. A lot of FANTASTIC FOUR was going back and looking at old runs and seeing what worked and what didn’t work, and taking the good stuff out and reintroducing it. The goal, though, was to make the franchise really relevant again. This isn’t the same thing. The Avengers are more relevant than they’ve ever been at any point in the history of the franchise. It’s stronger now than it has ever been. Going back and looking at a bunch of old stuff, regardless of how fond I am of it—and there’s certainly stuff that I really really like—I think it’s the wrong move to try and revisit old territory. I think that would be a mistake, and so I’ve intentionally gone the other way." - Jonathan Hickman

Well, if there was any doubt about Wolverine and the X-men in my mind, I'm a believer.
Marvel Zombie all the way, make mine Marvel.

How is that not innuendo?

This is why you go to school, kids. )
