Richard Rider and Laura Dunham have entered the "let her know I'm a superhero" part of their relationship.
What could possibly go wrong?

Trigger warning for rape getting mentioned and off-panel suicide.

Greetings True Believers!

There is more from the Marvel Adventures universe!

One of the things I like best about the MAverse lately is how Thor and Valkyrie have seemingly adopted Nova.

This time, Nova accompanies them on a mission through the Asgardian Underworld.

Greetings True Believers!

To my knowledge Marvel Adventures: Super Heroes #4 is the only time Wade has appeared in the MAverse.

He chews the scenery and leads the Avengers on a merry chase through New York City.

I hope this is an okay sort of post to make? Let me know if that's not the case, mods.

I'm not thrilled with the Marvel Adventures universe reboot for a number of reasons (Jaaaaan...), but I'm still mostly enjoying the Super Heroes run. However, it has also given me probably the weirdest of my current comics 'ships: Nova/Thor. Nova is easily my favorite thing about the reboot -- he is an adorable fanboy and I heart him. And I've always been fond of Thor. As far as shipping them goes...

Why? Well, here we go... )

2 scans from issue 1, 1 from issue 3, 4 from issue 6, 4 from issue 8 (some of which have been posted here before).

Two opposite figures (younger and older versions of the Sphinx), battling each other in a place where time has no meaning and space has no contiguous sense...

... summoning heroes and villains from across time to serve as their pawns in this battle, pitting one against the other on different battlefields...

... and the winner gets the other's Ka Stone, and all the near-godhood that that entails.

(Okay, that also makes it like every Marvel " giant spaceman proxy fight " story ever, but a Keith David!Sphinx would be kinda neat if it ever happened, so it all evens out.)

Anyhow, the battles concluded last issue- the older's pawns, represented by everyone who ever beat him (Nova, Darkhawk, Mister Fantastic, Black Bolt, and Namorita) triumphed over the younger's (a bunch of guys whose powers come from " the ancient crystals ", ranging from Moonstone to Man-Wolf.)

But then, it turned out older!Sphinx's motives amounted to more than curing his time cancer...  )

With all of Marvel's "Big Bad's" have been used in recent stories, something new and terrifying will be unleashed upon the Marvel Universe.
Newsarama has the interview about The Thanos Imperative.

And you call yourself a dark god.  )

In the heart of the Fault, two versions of the Sphinx rage against each other for control of their destiny.

Deadlocked because of their equivalent powers, they've summoned heroes and villains from across time to fight in their place.

The elder has chosen those who've defeated him before.

The younger's common criteria? Well, as Richard Rider realizes in his battle..  )

Realm of Kings continues, as more and more players become involved in using the aftermath of the Breach to their advantage. CosmicBookNews has better previews of Nova #32.

All is dust  )

John Rogers, the Kung Fu Monkey, uses the phrase "competence porn" to describe people's reactions to the briefing scenes on his show "Leverage." People apparently enjoy watching characters who know what they're doing.

While Richard Rider is often brash and headstrong, he actually does know what he's doing most of the time, and is now in the odd position of being the Nova Prime. Abnett and Lanning (along with Keith Giffen) have quietly taken him from being that guy on the New Warriors who went in first and got decked first to a wise, experienced superhero and space cop.

Plus, sometimes he fast-talks guys.
