Back in April, DC Comics and Mattel revealed the DC Super Hero Girls to the world. At the time, there was little information about the toy line beyond vague promises of figures, dolls, comics, books and clothing themed around DC’s strong lineup of female superheroes. Recently at New York Comic Con, the world got its first look at the toy line, including dolls based on Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn and more!
Not that we need more Secret Wars tie-ins (they are at over 200 and counting), but I feel like Marvel has wasted most opportunities with their Last Days branded books. None appear to be of consequence (Silver Surfer is making an attempt to be, but likely won’t), few deal directly with the events of the multiverse ending incursions (Magneto, Ms. Marvel) and the rest either use it as an unnecessary framing device or completely ignore it (Punisher, Black Widow).
After the cut I will have a quick look at the following: Ant-Man: Last Days #1, Silver Surfer #13, Silver Surfer #14, Black Widow #20, Ms. Marvel #17, Ms. Marvel #18, Magneto #21, Loki Agent Of Asgard #17, Spider-Woman #10 and Silk #7.
That’s a lot more issues than I usually cover in an update, but they should be short as I really only cover them in regards to Secret Wars, and most of them had little relevance. Note, this way be spoilers.

The best part of Marvel’s Secret Wars is that virtually every facet of the massive event starts with an issue #1. This presents 48 different jumping on points. Some stories may be based on characters you know, some series may be from another event or world you’ve read about, but all of them are different enough that you can pick up the series and start reading. With that in mind, we’ve harnessed the powers of Jimmy Impossible (who’s actually reading the entire event) to power rank every single Secret Wars series. Each week the rankings will change as new issues come out, so come take a look at the latest power rankings after the break!
Actually, more what they do over at MorphSuits, but we like to spread the love.
After the break, see how you farvorite female Marvel heroes fare.
