Secret Wars 2015 Battleworld Map

Secret War III Battleworld

Are we calling it Secret Wars 2015 or Secret Wars III?  I need an official name.  Marvel seems happy to call it, Secret Wars, but that’s not good.  Probably because they have been calling the original one – Marvel Superheroes Secret Wars, but that isn’t very ideal.

New York City is going to consist of the Proper Marvel Universe and the Ultimate New York City, which is pretty cool.  Here is hoping Ultimate Shadowcat plays some role in this!

27. 2099 could be interesting, surprised they are not just going with a giant Manhattan as the Battleworld.  I mean, it could still be a planet the size of Mercury but I’m sure it would make sense once we see it in-story.

37. (in a row) Limbo, does Magik release it?  How great would it be if Illyana has a role in this?  She practically carried AvX.

Some of those cities seem to just be random words put together.

Newsarama took a crack at what some of these could mean :

Planet Hulk: 1. Greenland
X-Men ’92: 33. Westchester
Age of Apocalypse: 3. Domain of Apocalypse
Armor Wars: 5. Technopolis
Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows: 8. The Regency
Years of Future Past: 30. Sentinel Territories
Attilan Rising and Ultimate Universe: The End: 20. Manhattan (a, c)
Future Imperfect: 2. Dystopia
House of M: 29. The Monarchy of M
A vs X: 17. Marville
Old Man Logan: 31. The Wastelands
Civil War: 22. The Warzone
The Infinity Gauntlet: 40. New Xandar
Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies: 39. Perfection & 38. The Deadlands

I like the idea of the AvX A-Babies v X-Babies having a part in this.  That would explain those Scottie Young images.

Here is the updated map –

Legendary Star Lord 6

Letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna

This is it, the date issue!

Legendary Star Lord 6 Kitty 1

Planet Spartax.  Capital of the Former Spartax Empire.  What happened to the Spartax Empire?  I feel like it was still a thing at the end of the Trial of Jean Grey and by issue three of this series.

This issue reminds me of what I saw from ABC’s (now cancelled) Manhattan Love Story – my wife really liked that show.  On the show, we are given the dialogue and the inner monologue of the newly together couple.

Both of them have the same concerns and thoughts.  They are both excited about the date, that it finally came and that this really needs to be well.

Quill gets dark blue narration boxes and Pryde gets light blue.  Quill really needs this date to go well, as this is sort of his final chance with her.  He is wearing this powder blue tuxedo.  Kitty is in a pretty business casual dress, not revealing at all – but that isn’t really her style, anways.  He starts with a lame joke.

I like that Rocket gave Quill dating advice.

Both of them don’t want Quill to blow this opportunity.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Kitty 2

Their date starts at the opera.  This issue takes place soon after last issue, as Mr. Knife’s Slaughter Squad is still after the Legendary Star Lord.  The first one to attack, is Delphinia.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 3

Now, I’m not sure why he doesn’t just tell Kitty that he is avoiding being killed.  She appreciates honesty.  I get that she really can’t do anything to assist, it isn’t really a situation where wearing a banana costume will help him.

This is the beginning of how the method of this relationship doesn’t work.  He tries to give her a flower but can she even feel the texture of it?  She is seen sitting in a chair, but I imagine that means she had to pull a chair into the room and sit on it.  Can she even really see the opera or even hear it, that well?  Like she see a 360 replica of his environment?  I get the impression that he can only see her like how we only see her, so the opera was a waste too.

Quill ushers the two of them out of the opera house.  We see him pushing her, so maybe she could have felt the flower.  Though, does she really have to be standing up?  Isn’t he just moving the hologram device to where he needs to place her?  I really am fascinated with how the hologram devices work, more so than anyone else online, from what I can tell.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 4 Lockheed

We see how Kitty sees Quill now, which is a great panel layout, good job Medina!  So, from her perspective, she went from sitting down on her bed to now standing in front of it.  For some reason, she is actually wearing skates, so she must be scratching that Weapon X facility’s floor, poorly badly.  Probably nowhere near as bad as Wolverine did.

We also get to my favorite part of the issue, that Lockheed is back!  He hasn’t been seen in forever!  but really, it was only two months ago in Wolverine and the X-Men Volume Two 11, but he hasn’t received this much panel time in quite some time.  Which would have been the two pages he got from Wolverine and the X-Men 32, over a year and a half ago in August 2013.

We see that she only can see Quill as well, so the opera was a waste.

Lockheed seems, I don’t know, off model.  I can’t tell if he looks too lizardy (a word) or to much of a dragon.  I don’t know.  He does look pretty cool, though.

Misa, the Hunter, is the next squad member to try to kill Quill.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 5 Lockheed

Quill throws Pryde cover to a giant stuff bear.  He dons his mask, for the only time in the issue, and I’m not sure if it is even necessary.

Turns out, the space panda is alive and pretty handsy.  Kitty tells Lockheed to fry the bear, if he tries anything.  I miss these two interacting.

So when Quill holds Pryde (and I sort of enjoy referring to them both by their last names) like he is recruiting the Pieta, what is she really doing?  Having her legs draped over the foot of her bed?  Are they secretly whispering stage directions to each other?

It makes sense when they were briefly chatting, they are relaxed and probably only talking or pacing around the room.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Kitty 3

Quill’s next destination is to take Pryde to a restaurant.  Boy, he really doesn’t know how the holophone device works.  She can’t taste the phone and she may be barely able to see it.  Pryde finally tells Quill that the holophone only has so many advantages and mostly disadvantages.

Father Diablo is at the restaurant and attempts to kill Quill.  Quill turns off the visual aspect of the phone call.  I guess he doesn’t tell her the truth as too much has happened now.  This doesn’t make Kitty happy at all.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 6 Lockheed

I was wrong, Quill does don his hero mask.  I guess he has to have it on to fire his gun, does that make sense?

So funny, as I type this review, we are about to start Season Three of Parks and Recreation and I can’t stop thinking of Andy (Chris Pratt) portraying Star Lord.  I really need to own that BluRay.

Okay, that panel Lockheed is in, he looks like a horse, that was the other creature I couldn’t think of above.  Medina got to draw horses last issue, so maybe he’s still working out all of that desire.

Quill turns on the holophone again and Pryde sees the restaurant is trashed.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 7

Pryde is pretty annoyed at this first date.  Him taking her to a garden makes sense, if she can see it.  I’m back to thinking that they can see maybe three feet around the other person’s sphere.

Kitty can see a statue, so she can look around.  I guess I’m use to the idea of a holodeck from Star Trek Next Generation.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 8

We see that patented Pryde-rage.  Quill has been messing up for weeks now, which goes and shows how patient Pryde has been, thus far.

Kitty’s main concern is that she is in an extremely long distance relationship.  Quill ponders what is the next thing to say.

Kitty admits that it isn’t like their relationship has been meaningful or anything, they have been mostly chatting.  Which has been nice but they can cut their losses and their days would remain the same.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 9

Quill finally lands on something, he admits that he thinks of Kitty – all of the time.  Pryde is comforted by it.

Him telling her that she is the coolest girl in the galaxy – which, from him, means something.  He has been around.  Kitty’s comment about – not even being the coolest girl in the X-Men.  Who is cooler than Kitty, in the X-Men?  Not Storm, not Rogue, not Psylocke.  Maybe she is thinking of Dazzler – that could make sense.

Kitty repeating her oft-said, I hate space, will pay off later.

Quill finds her brave, a great leader, a smart teacher.  He insults himself and she finally smiles.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 10

That left side of the page is so beautiful with the lighting and such.

Quill thinks kissing is second base, is that what it is?  I thought it was barely first base.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 11

Quill admits that he got the powder blue tuxedo from Stark, not the ideal romantic guide.

Pryde believes Quill has a cute butt.  He tells her that her butt is even better and that her hero uniform is a real turn on.

They are about to kiss . . .

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 12

When Czar Doon and the Slaughter Squad show up and ruin everything!  Now Kitty knows what has been happening this entire time.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 13 Lockheed

Pryde witnesses Quill being captured.  Quill leaves the room saying that this date was totally worth being captured for.

See Kitty’s costume hanging there on the bottom of the page?  I’m super fascinated (strangely) by the idea of superhero closets or drawers.  So many uniforms would look silly on a hanger.  But imagine what Colossus’ costumes look like on a hanger?

We get our first of two pages of non-Shadowcat nor Lockheed pages – which isn’t that great.  We learn Mr. Knife’s identity is . . . J’son – Peter Quill’s father!  oh noes

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 14

That mud planet he calls home.  Avengers Tower.  Tony Stark (so this takes place before AXIS) is informed that someone is stealing one of his space ships.  Tony knows who it is, as only one person can hack his gear AND walk through walls.  I sort of adore that, at this point, Pryde and Stark have some history.  The previous time they chatted, was in A+X 2 – a fantastic issue.

Legendary Star Lord 6 Shadowcat 15 Lockheed

How great is next issue going to be with team, Shadow & Flame, coming to Star Lord’s rescue?

AXIS Revolutions 3

AXIS Revolutions 3

Nice Shot

Writer Ray Fawkes

Artists Pepe Larraz & Rodrigo Zayas

Colorist Rachelle Rosenberg

VC’s Travis Lanham

Cover by Ken Lashley & Paul Mounts, such a great cover!

The nice thing about this issue is that someone remembered that Kitty was present at the Inversion spell.

New York City.  The police are gathering outside of a bank and shooting wildly inside.  None of the bullets are landing.

AXIS Revolutions 3 Kitty 1

I sort of adore a cocky Shadowcat.  Look at that power control!

AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 2

She doesn’t care that anyone learns her real name, which I would like to see if there is any fallout from this issue but I doubt anything from AXIS will be referenced again except for the big bulletpoints.

The police are moving closer and some detectives are trying to get CEO Emmett out of the bank as Kitty is trying to get pass the giant lock on the bank door.

AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 3

As Shadowcat ever done this trick before?  It seems brand new, it makes sense that a corrupted Kitty would think of clever ways to apply her powers.  I’ve gone on record before about if she and Invisible Woman wanted to go on a killing spree, no one would ever stop them.  Susan would make them invisible and Kitty would phase random objects into people’s heads.  By the time the body hit the floor, they would be underground.

AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 4

I also like the idea of how easily, once you remove the back of a wall, the security boxes are easy to get to.  Grant it, the wall would be doubly enforced but if you phase it away, super easy.

She also wants to be seen.  She could have gone through the back of the bank, got into the security safes and gotten out of there without anyone noticing.

AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 5

As Shadowcat is turning around, the lady she told her name to, has picked up a gun.  For some reason, she isn’t letting the fleet of police officers do their jobs.  Kitty tells her to go ahead and shoot, and the lady does.

Kitty straight up lets this lady shoot at her so that the bullet will phase through her and hit the CEO guy, which is totally messed up.  This should also be followed up.

Shadowcat’s motivation for the bank robbery is that the CEO has been funneling billions of dollars and placing the money into anti-mutant lobbies.  So she is corrupted but her main goal of protecting mutants is still there.  That’s pretty twisted.

Kitty gives the lady a bunch of cash and tells her that the photographs will show that she was paid to do it.

But is that right?  Wouldn’t the officers just explain that the lady was ‘tricked’ into killing the CEO.  So that lady has nothing to worry about, unless she was next in line for promotions.  Though that bank will probably be experiencing some in-office promotions.  You know, when enough time has passed.
AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 6

Kitty makes her way, easily, through the police squad.  She hijacks a police cruiser.

AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 7

The police know that they are chasing the X-Men’s Shadowcat.  Apparently, they know how to take her down, with gas, as she still has to breathe.  Who provides that information?  Is that some messed up protocol that came out of the Civil War files that Tony Stark gathered?  I know he kept them all private but it is the government, they probably had back ups.

Kitty likes that she is being pursued.

The police shoot a gas canister into her car.  She swerves into a police barricade and the car explodes.

AXIS Revolutions 3 Shadowcat 8

Don’t worry, Shadowcat phased feet away and walks with the box full of jewelry.  Pretty clever.

Pretty good little story here.

There is also a Sandman story in this issue

When Did You Become a Freddie Prinze Jr Fan?

My love for Freddie Prinze Jr. started way back in 1999’s mega hit, She’s All That

Thanks to YouTuber playplay90sVHS for hosting the video.

There is something about how intense FPJ is as Zack, as he tries to balance the hacky sack and how it is a complete metaphor for the pressures that he is under.  Such a fantastic scene.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Prinze,_Jr.

I may have seen I Know What You Did Last Summer and I Still Know What You Did Last Summer but he wasn’t the star of those films.  Though those films are awesome if you are a Sarah Gellar or a Jennifer Love Hewitt fan.

She’s All That, gave us Rachel Leigh Cook – who only really remember from when she played the Joey character in Dawson’s first real movie and from her excellent turn in Anti-Trust.  Which is still the only film I really like Ryan Phillipe in.

She’s All That also gave us the first of many times when Matthew Lillard and Freddie Prinze Jr acted together.  Such a fun duo these two actors are when they get to play off of each other as teammates or rivals.

She’s All That has an outstanding cast – Paul Walker, Kevin Pollack, a very young Anna Paquin, Jodi O’Keefe of Prison Break Fame (the lousy third season), Dule Hill and Tim Matheson (West Wing Represent, yo!) and it even has Lil’ Kim AND Usher!  Gabrielle Union is also great in it as is Chris Owen.  Even Elden Henson of Mighty Ducks fame and soon to be Netflix’s Daredevil’s Foggy Nelson, is in this as the best friend to Rachel Leigh Cook.

Before he was a named actor, he was in a movie titled, Hostage High, wherein Ricky Shroder takes his old high school hostage, at gun point, and the sheriff played by Henry Wrinkler.

I wasn’t a big fan of Wing Commander, I blame not really knowing the game that it was based off of and not being the biggest space movie fan.

Down To You, I simply adore, as I’m also a huge Julia Stiles fan.  There is just something about her that is super intoxicating and I seek out any new film of hers.  FPJ needs to do more romantic comedies, and I believe his career was hurt when he tried to get away from that.  He could be the next Tom Hanks!

Boys and Girls is still a personal favorite of mine.  This may be a favorite movie of mine for all the cast members – Claire Forlani (though I may still give Mallrats the edge) and Jason Biggs.  This was one of the only films that Heather Donahue of Blair Witch Project, ever made after the big film.  I used this film to prove to my father that Blair Witch Project wasn’t real, as he wasn’t believing any of the evidence.  Alison Hannigan also has a small role in it.  I simply love the soundtrack and the main song from it – Ronan Keating’s If I Don’t Tell You Now.

Thanks to YouTuber Leo Life for hosting this video.

I could watch, Boys & Girls, all day.  All Day!  It use to be one of those films that I would play while doing papers in college.

Head over Heels is fun, he’s the romantic lead but he doesn’t have the burden to carry the film.  I like Monica Potter (of Parenthood fame) and whenever that show made her cry (her go-to character trait) I thought about this film and how she just had a good time in it.  There is a running joke with one of the models in the film, that I still think about.

Summer Catch, is FPJ back in a comedy.  Jessica Biel is the love interest and Matthew Lillard is back as a teammate.  One of my favorite baseball films.  If you want a movie about No Hitters, this is the one for you.  Brittany Murphy is in it as is Bruce Davison (playing Biel’s father) and Wilmer Valderrama of That 70’s Show fame.

The film is mostly remembered, fondly for this moment with Jessica Biel –

Summer Catch Jessica Biel

But it really is a good film!

Then we get to 2002 & 2004’s Scooby Doo films.  The first one is my favorite and the cast commentary is a real delight!  FPJ is Fred, his wife Sarah Michelle Geller is Daphne, Matthew Lillard is Shaggy, Scooby is Scooby and Velma is played by the always amazing and should work more, Linda Cardellini.  I wonder if Linda is still friends with FPJ and the gang as I remember thinking that she was the sole person who wasn’t connected to FPJ prior to filming.  I do like Seth Green being added to the cast for the second film.

Linda Cardellini Velma

I do love me some Velma!

I haven’t seen any of the animated films that he has lent his voice – Shark Bait, Happily N’Ever After and Deigo.  His voice is unique enough for animation but I sort of need the man himself to be seen.

I’m not sure if after Scooby Doo, he decided to purposely take time away from the screen but he starts taking time off and after three years, came back with Brooklyn Rules.  Probably best known as his return to dramatic work since his first two films – To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday (with the incredible Michelle Pfeiffer) and The House of Yes – which is more of a comedy but with serious issues going on around it.  House of Yes is what got FPJ in the Miramax house and gave him a career.  I’ve always been a fan of early Miramax and Lionsgate.

Brooklyn Rules stars Alec Bladwin, Scott Caan and Mena Suvari.  FPJ will eventually work with most of the cast of American Pie.

New York City Serenade, is a very interesting film that has scenes that I still think about.  Like Chris Klein losing it on a costumer at the photo development center and FPJ has to cool the situation.  FPJ (people refer to him as that, right?) is a budding film maker.  Wallace Shawn (of Princess Pride fame, Inconceivable!) plays himself.  It isn’t an easy watch, with characters making baffeling decisions throughout it.  FPJ’s character, Owen, should have ditched Chris Klein’s character so much earlier in the film.  I don’t quite get the characters’ friendship.

His last film, believe it or not, is Jack and Jill vs. the World WAY BACK IN 2008!  I’m not sure why he isn’t bankable anymore.  Well, I guess looking at his last films but good for him for trying to branch out and get some range.  Probably my favorite Taryn Manning film, as she gets to play a different sort of character, one that is still a tad zany but grounded.

After this, he has two children (Gellar doing the hard work) in 2009 (a daughter) and 2012 (a son).

He has dabbled in television.

He was the Male Nanny for Ross and Rachel in Season 9 Episode 6, my favorite episode.

Thanks to YouTuber Rhetoric of Gender & Sexuality for hosting the video.

Though the ones where they are throwing the ball and Joey has to keep covering for Chandler and Monica and refers to himself as a horrible human being, are pretty fun.  5×21 and 5×9, respectfully.

He had his own show, Freddie, on ABC that lasted 22 episodes in 2005 / 2006.

Freddie Prinze Jr has worked with WWE off and on, I believe that is his most current gig, actually.

In 2010, for 24’s eight season, he played Cole Ortiz, which also featured another favorite actress of mine, Jennifer Westfeldt.  Season three is by far my favorite season of the show, with the moment with Jack in front of the hotel with the dude’s daughter, but eight is up there.  3×23 is the episode that made me a hardcore fan of Jack Bauer!

That’s my retrospective on Freddie Prinze Jr., who really needs to act more!

At one point, I owned all of these films but traded them in for cash, which was a very sad day for me.

Marvel June 2015 Solicitations

http://www.newsarama.com/23821-marvel-comics-full-june-2015-solicitations.html

SECRET WARS #3 (OF 8)
JONATHAN HICKMAN (w) • ESAD RIBIC (a)
ALL THE DEVILS DANCE!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

SECRET WARS #4 (OF 8)
JONATHAN HICKMAN (w) • ESAD RIBIC (a)
ALL THE ANGELS SING!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

I am super curious, with all of the side miniseries (and there are so many of them!) how the main event is going to keep it all going.

 

THORS #1
JASON AARON (w) • CHRISTOPHER SPROUSE (a/C)
• The Thors of every domain, together in one book! As cosmic cops!
•Whenever there’s trouble on Battleworld, the Thors answer the call. But a string of mysterious murders leaves some of them asking questions that may unravel all of reality!
•A hard-hitting Marvel Comics police drama. With hammers. Lots and lots of hammers.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

I do like how Throg is going to be a part of this! At the very least, should be in the background of a few panels.

 

ULTIMATE END #2 (OF 5)
BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (w) • MARK BAGLEY (a/C)
THE LAST ULTIMATES STORY BY THE GROUND-BREAKING UNIVERSE’S FOUNDING FATHERS!
• The countdown has begun
• An end of an era
• Who will survive?
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

Ultimate End having the same creative team as Cataclysm, really points out how much of a missed opportunity Cataclysm was, right?

 

Secret Wars 2015 Battleworld Starlord Kitty Pryde
Art by Yasmine Putri

 

STAR-LORD AND KITTY PRYDE #1
SAM HUMPHRIES (w) • ALTI FIRMANSYAH (a)
Cover by YASMINE PUTRI
VARIANT COVER BY TBA
• STAR-LORD AND KITTY PRYDE–finally in their own series together! But are they TOGETHER together?! And is this the Kitty Pryde that Peter loves or one from a completely different reality.
• This series takes place right in the thick of things on BATTLEWORLD and is sure to be a wild ride!
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

 

I can only imagine I am going to want that Variant cover! So excited bout this series and how Humphries is going to bring back Age of Apocalypse Shadowcat!

 

MASTER OF KUNG FU #2 (OF 4)
HADEN BLACKMAN (w) • DALIBOR TALAJIC (a)
Cover by FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA
VILLAINOUS BETRAYAL! MARTIAL ARTS MASTERY! KUNG-FU ACTION!
• Shang-Chi may have found a new home with the Lower Caste, but can he keep them safe?
• Can Shang-Chi keep his vow of peace?
• Will Laughing Skull laugh last? Or will Shang-Chi kick that smile right off his face?!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

I’m glad that I sort of switched to Hastings, as it was only a difference of savings of forty cents – which does add up – but I imagine I’m not going to actually need every issue of some of these series. Star Lord and Kitty Pryde, for sure but these types of minis, I imagine I don’t.

 

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN:
RENEW YOUR VOWS #1 & #2

DAN SLOTT (w) • ADAM KUBERT (a/C)
THE LAST SPIDER-MAN STORY
• Not even The Amazing Spider-Man is safe from Secret Wars! In this new Marvel Universe, Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson and their daughter have to scrape by to make ends meet, but they have each other…
• Face front, True Believers. This is the one you’ve been asking for.
32 PGS. (EACH)/Rated T …$3.99 (EACH)

 

This, I’m somewhat curious about, as it seems to be the fix that I’ve had with Peter Parker ever since One More Day. Though I’m still super interested in getting some Superior Spider-Man trades.

 

A-FORCE #2
MARGUERITE BENNETT & G. WILLOW WILSON (w)
JORGE MOLINA (a/C)
• With monsters appearing on the utopian island of Arcadia and threatening its inhabitants, She-Hulk and her team of Avengers set out to discover the source.
• But when they stumble upon a conspiracy that reaches far beyond Arcadia, She-Hulk may just find herself on the wrong side of the law!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

I knew the second cover would have the official team, so this series looks like I’ll be skipping it. Spider-Gwen, Rogue, Pixie, Spider-Woman, Old School Dazzler, She-Hulk and a short haired brunette, is a decent mixture of characters.

 

GIANT-SIZE LITTLE MARVEL: AVX #1
SKOTTIE YOUNG (w) • SKOTTIE YOUNG (a/C)
• The toughest, funniest, craziest and most adorable Marvel heroes THROW DOWN.
• Featuring all your favorites including Cyclops, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Wolverine! They’re all there, just shorter!
• Skottie Young brings out the big guns in the series fans have been waiting for!
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

 

I really adore these Little Marvel projects so I’m committing to these as there are a load of Easter eggs in these issues. Plus, they are super fun and I smile the entire time I am reading them.  I wish Magik was on the cover, as well, and not just Emma, then I would know for sure, if I was going to keep this issue.

 

X-MEN ‘92 #1
CHRIS SIMS & CHAD BOWERS (w) • SCOTT KOBLISH (a)
Cover by PEPE LARRAZ
• Everyone’s favorite version of the X-Men from the ’90s is back!
• When Baron Kelly charges the Clear Mountain Project and it’s mysterious new director with “mutant rehabilitation,” it’s up to the X-Men to investigate!
• PLUS: Free Range Sentiels?!?
40 PGS./Rated T …$4.99

 

Chris Sims is writing a comic for Marvel!?! That is awesome! It is based off of the 90s FOX X-Men Animated Series, so the chances are super high that Kitty wouldn’t be involved in this series but I will put myself on the list so that I can support this title. This comic, though, is five dollars, which I can’t believe that the bulk of the issues above are $3.99, that just seems way too much.

• At their center is Kate Pryde, a heroine tried and tested by war, and mother of the last mutant ever to be born before the purges of the Mutant Control Act!

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

Another five dollar comic? At least it is only for the first issue. I’m imagining that I will want the variants for this series, as well. So excited about this miniseries. So glad that Kitty Pryde, of all characters, is being spotlighted in two miniseries! Chances are high, that she survives into Post-Secret Wars 2015, right? I’m hoping! I wish they showed the art for the second cover.

 

MRS. DEADPOOL AND THE HOWLING COMMANDOS #1

32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

 

I wish Shiklah got her name in the title, but I imagine “Mrs. Deadpool, Siklah, and the Howling Commandos” is a little wordy. But “Deadpool” sells but it would have been nice. I do like her getting her own series, that’s pretty rad.

 

X-TINCTION AGENDA #1
MARC GUGGENHEIM (w)
CARMINE DI GIANDOMENICO (a)
Cover by DAVID NAKAYAMA
• Ten years since the fall of Cameron Hodge and his fascist regime. Ten years that Havok and Wolfsbane have labored to rebuild Genosha. But their work may be for naught, as a plague has spread across their nation, infecting mutants and threatening their race with extinction.
• With the country quarantined and seemingly abandoned by the rest of the world, including the X-Men, old friends may become new enemies as Genosha’s rulers fight to save their people!
• Experience an alternate future fueled by the events of the landmark first X-Crossover of 1990, X-Tinction Agenda!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

Kitty shouldn’t be a part of this, but since it doesn’t cost me anything to add it to my pull list, that’s what I’m going to do, to be on the safe side. I knew June was going to be expensive but this really getting out of hand!

 

OLD MAN LOGAN #2
BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (w) • ANDREA SORRENTINO (a/C)
• He may be an Old Man, but never before has the world needed Logan as much as it does now.
• The people he loved have become mere memories. The world that he loved has decayed, becoming a festering Wasteland.
• But in a world devoid of heroes, even someone who is the best there is at what he does may find themselves overmatched by evil.
32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

 

Maybe Bendis has forgotten that Kitty was dead and add her to the book? I doubt it, so I’m not even on the list for it.

 

E IS FOR EXTINCTION #1
CHRIS BURNHAM (w) • RAMON VILLALOBOS (a)
Cover by IAN BERTRAM
• What happens when mutants prove they really are Homo SUPERIOR?
• What will happen to the X-Men when they fight for a world that wants to be them, rather than hate and fears them?
• And what exactly is Magneto doing running the Xavier institute??
40 PGS./Rated T+ …$4.99

 

Kitty wasn’t involved at all during Grand Morrison’s run, outside of a hundred faces cover and two vague references to her during Emma Frost spotlight issues. I’m asking for these series to be pulled for me and I might as well add Old Man Logan. Better to be safe than sorry!  In an entire, Burnham mentioned how he got Morrison’s blessing for this, which I like.  Apparently, he even gave some plot suggestions too.  That’s pretty awesome.

 

CAPTAIN MARVEL & THE CAROL CORPS #1
KELLY SUE DECONNICK & KELLY THOMPSON (w)
DAVID LOPEZ (a/C)
ANT-SIZED VARIANT COVER BY JOHN TYLER CHRISTOPHER
• Atten-Hut!  These ladies are the best of the best–and will take you down if you threaten their Captain.
• Welcome to Hala Field, where being a part of the elite Carol Corps, requires guts, guile and a whole lot of grit.  So put on your uniform and get ready for a high-flying Captain Marvel series years in the making.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

Kelly Thompson of She Has No Head fame is writing for Marvel too! I really need to start doing web comics or something, as that would be awesome. I just can’t draw anything but maybe I can use that. What could I write about? hmmmmmm. I feel a little bad, as I bumped off Kelly DeConnick from my Top Female Comic Book Writers list to include Marguerite Bennett, and Kelly knows that now. Oops!

 

INFERNO #2
DENNIS HOPELESS (w) • JAVIER GARRON (a/C)
• As if Colossus’s Inferno raid wasn’t impossible enough, now his skeleton crew X-Men are a team divided.
• With Boom Boom gut stuck and bleeding out.
• Nightcrawler caught in Darkchylde’s hellfire web.
• And Domino’s fate in the hands of The Goblin Queen Madelyne Pryor.
• Find out if our big metal mutant can pull his team’s bacon from the flames and get this suicide mission back on track as X-Men vs. Hell-on-Earth action continues.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

Colossus handling Illyana’s soulsword is the new hip thing, I suppose.

DUSTIN WEAVER (a/C)
• Thanos vs. Nova!

This is starting to feel missable.

 

SECRET WARS 2099 #2 (OF 5)
PETER DAVID (w) • WILLIAM SLINEY (a)
Cover by DAVE RAPOZA
SPIDER-GWEN 2099 VARIANT COVER BY JASON LATOUR
• Secret Wars continues as The Avengers of the Year 2099 come face to face with a tremendous beast who’s no stranger to the team!
• Who could it be? We’ll give you a hint – you won’t like him when he’s angry.
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

 

Were there Avengers in 2099? I feel like that was a big storypoint in 2099 : Manifest Destiny. Not like that should be in 2099 continuity now.

 

PLANET HULK #2
SAM HUMPHRIES (w) • MARC LAMING (a)
Cover by MICHAEL DEL MUNDO
• Gladiator STEVE ROGERS, his trusty steed DEVIL DINOSAUR and the mysterious DOC GREEN go deeper into one of the most dangerous domains of BATTLEWORLD, the HULK infested territory known as GREENLAND!
• WILD HULKS in the jungle! GIANT HULKS in lakes of fire!
• But is the journey the most perilous part of this hellish mission or is it one of the travelers?

DEVIL DINOSAUR!?! RIDDEN BY CAPTAIN AMERICA!?! That sounds awesome!

 

SPIDER-VERSE #2
MIKE COSTA (w) • ANDRE ARAÚJO (a)
Cover by NICK BRADSHAW
• Spider-Gwen is on Battleworld and face-to-face with Norman Osborn.
• This can’t end well.
• But what’s going on with the rest of the Web-Warriors?
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

 

Hopefully this Gwen doesn’t get impregnated by Norman Osborn! Apparently, from her universe, Norman killed Peter Parker, so that’s pretty neat.

 

DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS #2 (OF 4)
CULLEN BUNN (w) • MATTEO LOLLI (a)
Cover by TONY HARRIS
• If a secret war happens on a secret planet in secret space, and no one hears about it…DID IT REALLY HAPPEN?!?!
• That’s what you’ll be asking about this series for years to come!
• And the answer is YES! Deadpool really DID mess with the original Secret Wars!
32 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

 

I wish the covers were more homages to the original Secret Wars, or gave us a hint at who the cast may be. I’m just hoping Lockheed makes a few panel appearances in this. I noticed this has a set number of issues, whereas most of the other Secret Wars 2015 are implied ongoings. Which can only last eight or less issues, right? All of these series should be done by Secret Wars 2015 issue eight, I imagine.

 

I’m glad that they put all of the Star Wars titles together, so that I can just skip right over those.

 

HOWARD THE DUCK #4
CHIP ZDARSKY (w) • JOE QUINONES (a/C)
Looks like the “doctor is in” … this issue of HOWARD THE DUCK! Ha ha of course I’m referring to Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme.
• I’m 100% positive nobody’s ever made that joke before, so I feel pretty confident doing so here.
• There will be other jokes of a similar nature in this issue.
• PLUS! A MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS (1984) tie-in!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

That is a fun write-up!

 

 

GUARDIANS TEAM-UP #6
Bill Willingham (W) • DIOGO SAIDO (A)

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

I do like Nightcrawler getting spotlighted during Secret Wars 2015, but I doubt Kitty will be shown in this. Magik should there, as she is good at handling a blade!

 

HOUSE OF HEM
FRED HEMBECK with JIM SHOOTER (w)
FRED HEMBECK with RON WILSON, JOHN BYRNE,
MICHAEL GOLDEN, AL MILGROM, JOHN BUSCEMA & MORE (a)
Cover by FRED HEMBECK
• For over thirty years, cartoonist Fred Hembeck has been poking fun at Marvel’s mightiest heroes. Now, some of his greatest works are collected in a giant-sized one-shot that’s bursting with belly laughs!

ISBN: 978-0-7851-9418-7

 

I’m torn on this, as I own the Fantastic Four Roast and the Hembeck Destroys the Marvel Universe, and I would highly recommend both of those but do I need to own this? I’m sure I own the majority of those Marvel Age issues too. Actually, I only own issue 122 and don’t have any of the rest. Oops! But that’s odd as I know Hembeck has several pages of art in the issues I do own. I wonder why it isn’t more of an everything collection. What are they holding out for?

 

What I really wish, was that Kitty was on the cover of this, so I could justify the purchase (as I’m that guy) now I have to debate its worth. Dang it! I will probably end up buying it. Eight dollars is a bit much, maybe Hastings will have it cheaper than just a dollar off. Who knows, not me, that’s for sure.

I’ve been really enjoying this crossover thus far. Fifty dollars seems a bit much, but it is fourteen issues, so that is probably reasonable.

Is issue fifteen the final issue? That series lasted a tad longer than I thought it would but it was a fun series, if not expensive.

 

. . .

Okay, let’s see how expensive June 2015 really is!

Secret Wars 2015 3 & 4 –            $8
Ultimate End 2 –                        $4
Star Lord & Kitty Pryde 1 – $4
Masters of Kung Fu 2 –             $4
Giant Size Little Marvels : AvX – $4
X-Men ’92 1 –                        $5
Years of Future Past 1 & 2 – $9
X-Tinction Agenda 1 –             $4
Old Man Logan 2 –             $4
E is for Extinction 1 –             $4
Inferno 2 –                         $4
House of Hem –                        $8

Worst case, $62, with a dollar off each book is – fourteen dollars for a total of $48.

In reality though, I’m only imagining I am really buying –

Secret Wars 2015 3 & 4 –            $8
Ultimate End 2 –                        $4
Star Lord & Kitty Pryde 1 – $4
Masters of Kung Fu 2 –             $4
Giant Size Little Marvels : AvX – $4
Years of Future Past 1 & 2 – $9
Inferno 2 –                         $4
House of Hem –                        $8

So that’s a more reasonable $45 with a savings of ten dollars for a total of $35, which is still under my $40 budget. So that’s pretty keen!

Still not sure if I’m sticking with Marvel, Post-Secret Wars 2015.  I keep thinking that if the X-Men rumors are true, then Marvel will at least print one title, which will work out great for me!   

I’m adding seven ongoings to my list!  That is a lot!

Now that I’m looking over my list, I didn’t put Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars, so that could be another four dollars.

I’m sort of glad that I’m working at Hastings now, for this sole reason, as I imagine Kitty, Lockheed nor Magik will appear in every issue of Secret Wars 2015 and that saves me having to own those issues to later sell to Lonestar Comics.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 1 2014

Uncanny X-Men Annual 1 2014

Writer Brian Michael Bendis

Artist / Cover Art Andrea Sorrentino

Color Artist Marcelo Maiolo

Lettering & Production VC’s Joe Caramgna

The story that finally tells what happened to Tempus back in Uncanny X-Men Volume Three Issue 17 and what Cyclops already knew what happened as we learn in Issue 23 – the Cuckoos told him.

Hopefully this means that she can start appearing in Uncanny again as she has gone into the background as of late (though most of the students have).  Which makes sense as Bendis wouldn’t want to keep dealing with the characters talking about a story that us readers have not seen yet.

This story continues into the All New X-Men Annual but Magik doesn’t appear in that one.

Issue opens Tempus bouncing around time.  She starts with being far into the future, the future with Jonathan Raven.   Next, she bounces to the far past of 1875.  The days of Rawhide Kid, not sure why Bendis didn’t go with Two-Gun Kid, that would have made more sense.  Man, I can really go for a proper sequel of Blaze of Glory.  Apache Skies, was meant to be a sequel but it wasn’t the same.

The cowboys don’t recognize her Australian accent.

I do like that Bendis didn’t make Rawhide Kid overly gay like Ron Zimmerman tried to portray.  Rawhide learns that Tempus bounces when her life is threatened so he pulls his gun on her.  She time shifts out of there and we see that he was only merely threatening her.

Finally, she bounces to 2099 and we get a page of X-Men 2099 but I don’t know any of these folks.  I had several of the action figures back in the day but I’m sure I played with those toys wrong with barely the knowledge that was on the back of the card.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 2014 Magik 1

We learn that Magik is alive and well in 2099.  If only she was part of the X-Men 2099 original line of comics, I would have bought those.

We see that somehow, Nightcrawler, is also alive in 2099.  Also?  He is the Wong to Illyana’s Sorceress Supreme.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 2014 Magik 2

Is Doctor Strange not the Sorcerer Supreme of the entire galaxy?

Magik could really relate to bouncing around time as she and Dani did it for a while.

Poor Magik has lost her mutant power so she only has magic to rely on now.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 2014 Magik 3

Seven Years Later.  Which is a very long time.

Tempus has a husband and child now.  I really like Illyana being so warm to their son.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 2014 Magik 4

Magik asks when Tempus is going back to her proper time era, which upsets Tempus.  She has a family now.  I get the impression that Magik has not brought up the topic before.

We don’t learn the names of her husband or son.  As they are chatting, the boy is hungry, a giant explosion occurs.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 2014 Magik 5

Eva keeps calling Illyana, Dr. Rasputin.  I guess it works like when Brother Voodoo became the Sorcerer Supreme and people started calling him, Doctor Voodoo.  To which, I am pretty sure, the title of ‘Doctor’ is not also given with the other title.

Illyana is fighting a giant four arm dude.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 2014 Magik 6

As much as I hate Magik being wounded, her line about being ‘wounded unfavorably’ is pretty amazing.

Uncanny X-Men Annual 1 2014 Magik dead

Poor Illyana Rasputin, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Galaxy, dies in her first appearance.  What happens to Nightcrawler, now?

Magik’s final words is a warning that Beast needs to die, so that’ll be interesting to watch.

Tempus’ family shows up, while the giant man person is still on the battlefield.  He is about to kill her when she time bounces to the dinosaur times as a triceratops comes at her.  This is how the issue ends.

Death of Wolverine : Weapon X Program 4

Weapon X Program 4

Writer Charles Soule

Penciler Angel Unzueta

Inkers Marc Deering & Juan Vlasco

Colorist Frank D’Armata

Letterer VC’s Cory Petit

This issue, we get the confirmation that we so desired!  But first, this stuff happened.

Shaker Heights, Cleveland.  Endo is running along the streets, at top speed.  She gets to a house and is looking for a Taylor.  Three soldiers are ready for her, one is a green lady.

New Orleans, Louisiana.  The other escapees are discussing how Endo ran away.  They want to get her back.  Neuro reviews her file, which he has as he hacked the database.  Junk doesn’t like that Neuro has all of their secrets.

Junk and Skel want to go save Endo, but Neuro and Sharp want to go their own way.  Before they announce their decision, Sharp and the voice in his head, have a discussion.  I wonder if that happens in real time, are the others just staring at them the entire time, patiently waiting for a response?

Once Sharp and Neuro are outside of the van, Neuro wants to stick together.  He gets a punch to his face for his foolish thought.

Cleveland.  Endo is confronted by the three soldiers.  They reveal Endo’s messed up origin.  Taylor isn’t a dude, but a lady.  Endo started life out as a man and he and his lady were trying for a baby, using fertility treatments.  Professor Cornelius saw that Endo was perfect for what he was looking for.  Apparently, it wasn’t Cornelius’ plan to turn him into a woman but that’s just what happens.

The snake lady hits Endo with some venom and forces him/her to grow in size.  Junk and Skel show up to witness this and try to help out.

Neuro finds an Internet cafe and makes a call, as he has finally hacked all of the files and has some information to bargain with.

Sharp finds a quite space and threatens to cut his own throat unless the voice reveals who he is.

Weapon X Program 4 Ogun Kitty

It is Ogun, yo!  We get a quick recap of Death of Wolverine, including Ogun taking control of Kitty’s body.

Issue ends with Sharp in full Ogun garb.  So now it is on!

Uncanny X-Cast 166

http://www.uncannyxcast.com/main/2015/3/16/episode-166-camping-and-space-camping.html

Rob and Brian played my fifth voicemail!  My segment is from 13:30 to 14:44.  Brian calls me, DK3, which hurts but maybe I’m mishearing it.

Brian references my Facebook post, regarding Sins Past and how I still can’t get over Gwen Stacy having sex with her boyfriend’s best friend’s father.  That quick discussion is from 59:09 -1:00:29.
