Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars 51

Armor-Wars-0.5-Toys-R-Us-Giveaway

Life is funny sometimes.  When I wrote my walk through of Secret Wars #9 I mentioned that I had read all the events books except for Armor Wars #½.  Since it was a limited giveaway at Toys R’ Us (a store I don’t frequent) I had a hard time getting my hands it.  Strangely enough, it was literally half an hour after that review posted to the website, I happened upon a copy.

After the break I will inch closer to completing this odyssey with the aforementioned Armor Wars #½, as well as finish off Weirdworld (#3-5) and X-Men ’92 (Infinite) (#7-8).  As usual, this way be spoilers.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars XXVII: Mrs. Deadpool Edition


mrs_deadpool_and_the_howling_commandos_1

I’ve never read much Deadpool.  I’ve got nothing against the character voted in high school as most likely to be twice played by Ryan Reynolds.  He’s just never really been something I’ve gone out of my way to spend my money on.

I’ve read some stories here and there like the old school X-Force days and any crossovers like the recent Original Sin and Avengers/X-Men: Axis .  Those last crossovers gave me some idea about what was going on with him marrying Shiklah and such.  (Looking back at it now, I actually read Deadpool #29 34 and  #36-39.  Thanks event tie-ins!)

And speaking of event tie-ins (not the greatest segue, I’m no Watson…thank Doom…), Deadpool’s wife is center stage in this Secret Wars book.  Deadpool does play a role, but since he is killed on the first page, that role is mostly as the ghostly narrator.

After the cut I’ll take a spoiler-y look at the surprisingly good Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #1, Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #2, Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #3 and Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #4.

Before You See Ant-Man Check Out This Infographic Of All Marvel Movies

This post is so awesome, this isn’t even the infographic!

While Iron Man was the first film of what we now know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was far from the first Marvel film.  That distinction belongs to…ugh…Howard The Duck.  But they followed that up with The Punisher…starring Dolph Lundgren.  And then Captain America and Fantastic Four films so bad they never received theatrical release.  Marvel was really not off to a good start.

But starting in 1998, though there would still be some bumps in the road going forward, Wesley Snipes came along and saved the day.  Yes, Wesley Snipes.

Read more about Blade and all the other Marvel movies on the infographic from shirts.com after the break.

Slightly Misplaced Comics Book Hero Case Files #15: Wundarr the Aquarian

Well, that outfit looks...comfortable.
Well, that outfit looks…comfortable.

Usually when I do these entries, I have at least a cursory knowledge of the character.  I’ve read a few of his or her adventures, either back in my regular collecting days, or in various reprints I’ve picked up since then.

Then there’s today’s entry, the supremely screwy Wundarr the Aquarian.
