At Long Last, Miles Morales Makes His Prime Marvel “Debut” Today In Spider-Man #1

spider-man-miles-morales

We’ve known for quite some time that Miles Morales would be spinning his webs in the Prime Marvel Universe after the events of Secret Wars and the destruction of the Ultimate Universe.  In fact, Miles has been swinging around his new universe for a while now, having made appearances in other books, namely All-New All-Different Avengers for the past 3 months.

Which brings us to today’s release of Spider-Man #1.  Marvel has been staggering their new releases post Secret Wars for many reasons.  One, though they will downplay it as much as possible, the lengthy delays of Secret Wars itself.  Two, they wanted to spread their new number ones out so that they weren’t clobbering each other ala DC’s New 52 (and it looks like their upcoming Reboot Rebirth project.)  But third, and maybe most inportantly for this book, they wanted to get the band back together.  What I mean by that is Spider-Man #1 sees the reunion of Miles creators Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli.

As for the issue itself, I found it a bit uneven.  If you are a fan of Miles you will likely be happy with it, but several aspects of it came off a bit strange to me.  I’ll dive into them more after the cut as things will get a bit spoilery.

Jurrasic World Hands The Baton To The Force Awakens

congrats_force_awakens

It’s a slow day here at the Gabbing Geek office as we are all suffering from Force hangovers.  But we still need to post something.  So above, Universal shows respect to Star Wars on breaking almost every record in existence.  Including top opening weekend, best single day, most home runs in a season, fastest quarter mile and number of hot dogs eaten in an hour.

ICYMI, after the break, a reminder of Marvel doing the same for Universal when Jurassic World bested Avengers.

Where Does the Josh Trank Fantastic Four Movie Rank Against Other Superhero Flicks?

Why-Superhero-Movies-Need-Tragedy

You’ve seen me praise the film in my review.  Jenny liked it as well in her review.  The critics combined score over at Rotten Tomatoes was another story.  But again, I feel they missed the boat on this one.

To illustrate how wrong I think the critics are on this one, I decided to examine exactly where Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four ranked relative to the other DC/Marvel superhero movies in the post-Iron Man and Dark Knight era.

My findings after the jump.

Two More Geeks Weigh In: Ant-Man

Yea or nay?
Yea or nay?

By now, you may have seen how both Ryan and Watson weighed in on spoiler-free reviews for Ant-Man.  Well, they aren’t the only folks who work here, and they aren’t the only folks who have seen it.  Tom lives in another state.  Jenny wasn’t invited on their playdate to see the movie, possibly due to Ryan and Watson’s longstanding membership in the He-Man Woman Haterz Club.

However, this is Gabbing Geek, and not the All Ant-Man Report, so Tom and Jenny are sharing their thoughts on the movie in a single post.  See it behind the cut.  May be SPOILERS.  You’ve been warned.

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

marvel-universe-790x467
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.

Behind The Mask: The Avengers Personality Chart

Generally, with larger-than-life superpowers come larger-than-life personalities. How each hero deals with problems is hugely representative of who they are as people. They are each complex individuals with different ways of tackling everything from their world-threatening enemies to their personal demons. Over at Fanpup, they’ve taken a crack at sorting them by Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). If you don’t know your type but want to see which of The Avengers you’re most like, you can take the test here. – So Jenny is an ENFP – which one do you most identify with?
