ICYMI: Fan Made Death Of Spider-Man Motion Comic

death_of_spider-man_motion_comic

This morning I briefly wrote about the death of the Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and this afternoon I stumbled upon this awesome fan made motion comic that covers the storyline from Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #158-160 from 2011.  I personally didn’t love the story, but this motion comic is quite awesome.  Watch it after the break.

Civil War II’s “First Death Will Merely Serve As The Series Marketing Hook”

Civil_War_2
This time around it’s once again Iron Man vs Cap…tain Marvel?!? And Captain America is on Iron Man’s side!?! This really is All-New and All Different!

At least Marvel is being upfront and honest.  In translation, we know superhero deaths have become mostly meaningless and pretty much everyone makes a return within a year or so.

Civil War II will be released this June, a month after the loose adaptation of the original series hits the big screen in Captain America: Civil War.  The premise to me sounds like a super hero version of Minority Report:

A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy. This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.

So who do you think that death will be?  Marvel has already confirmed it won’t be the Human Torch or Spider-Man.  Vote in our poll after the break.

Spiders, Spiders Everywhere Part 5

Fear not true believers, my obsession with the Spider-Man Complete Chronology and posts you won’t read has not wavered, just been waylayed by Convergence and Secret Wars.

After the break, check out some cameos that Spidey has made in the Marvel Universe over the years that are not significant enough to include in the reading order.

Trank Delivers: Fantastic Four Is Better Than You’ve Heard. In Fact, It Is Pretty Darn Good (Spoiler Free)

Forget about losing the Star Wars standalone film.  Josh Trank’s next assignment will be directing Joey Tribbiani’s next Gonorrhea commercial based on  the 10% Rotten Tomatoes score that Fantastic Four is currently sporting.  But I gotta tell you.  It ain’t fair.  Fantastic Four is a smart movie that delivers something bold and fresh.  Find out why the critics missed the mark after the jump.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Thirteen (Marvel Zombies Edition)

Marvel_Zombies_1_Cover-674x1024

I was a huge fan of the first couple of Marvel Zombies mini-series.  Written by Robert Kirkman (I wonder whatever happened to that guy?), it featured an alternate Marvel Universe where everyone from Spider-Man to Hulk to Thanos ended up as a flesh eating zombie.  And when you are a super powered zombie, there’s not much resistance the human race can throw at you.

But all good things must come to an end…specifically the human race, and with it the Zombies greatest food source.  What’s a zombie to do?  At the very least, become a domain of Battleworld.

After the break I’ll look at Marvel Zombies #1 and Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies #1.

Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com.  The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.

And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: Part One, Part Two, Part Three,Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine, Part Ten, Part Eleven, Part Twelve

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Twelve

thors-1

Oh those pesky Thors.  Tasked with being the “police” of Battleworld, they are one of the truly cool new concepts introduced with Secret Wars.  And while there have been lots of Thor’s across Marvel’s multiverse and history to fill up a corps as is, we also get some cool new Thor’s based on the likes of Iron Man and Groot for example.  They’ve shown up in pretty much every book so far in one way or another, but they also get a series of their own.

In this episode of “Jimmy’s Way Behind On Deadlines”, I’ll look at that Thor-centric book with Thors #1.  I’ll also look at Armor Wars #2 (hey, there’s a James Rhodes Thor on the cover!), Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2 and Squadron Sinister #1.  As usual, spoilers abound.

Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com.  The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.

That One Time The Human Torch Got Snuffed…

"How about a hug, Iceman?"
“How about a hug, Iceman?”

I decided, after enjoying Jonathan Hickman’s work leading up to Secret Wars (you know, that thing I did that series of near-Wikipedia entries on), to go back and read through what was by all accounts an equally epic Fantastic Four run.

Yesterday as I type this, I read the trade that included the “death” of Johnny Storm, the Human Torch.  Yeah, even if I didn’t know he was coming back, I wouldn’t have believed it.
