It’s almost mandatory that a superteam has a lavish base of operations. Avengers Tower. The Baxter Building. The X-Mansion! But the recently formed All-New, All-Different Avengers don’t really have the cash to spare on a swanky base. Say good bye to Avengers Tower, and say hello to... Avengers Condemned Airfield?
It’s taken them a while, but Tony Stark has finally, officially brought back the Avengers for Marvel’s All-New, All-Different universe! It’s about time, especially when you realize that Marvel has been putting out two additional Avengers comics for several months now. Confused? We can help.
It’s been nearly three whole months since we bid adieu to the Marvel comic universe of old, and said hello to the world of “All-New, All-Different” Marvel. In many ways, a lot has changed, and in some frustrating ways, barely anything has. Not been reading along? This is how it has shaped up so far.
Marvel’s man movies has played a huge role in introducing heroes big and small to a whole new audience that has never picked up a comic before. But with so many films released, there’s fans out there who might want to take the first step into reading the comics the movies have come from. Here are just a few…
The first issue of Marvel’s All-New, All-Different Avengers was, a lot of setup. So much setup, that it didn’t even culminate with the formation of the new Avengers team we’ve known about since March. Now, as much as they like to say that they’re not the Avengers yet, they’re finally together. Sort of.
Manhwa—the South Korean term for printed comics—have long been popular, but recently more and more Western companies have been collaborating with Korean artists to bring their characters to the country.

Okay. So Halloween might be behind us, and I can’t quite believe I’m saying this about a Marvel comic—especially one starring the Avenging Android that was one of the most charming parts of Age of Ultron. But the first issue of The Vision is a strangely chilling, page-turner of a comic. And it is fantastic.
Okay, so you might be more familiar with a bunch costumed superheroes when someone says “The Avengers” to you—but to UK-based readers of a certain age, it means only one thing: The spy-fi adventures of John Steed and Emma Peel.

Yes, Deadpool is now an Avenger in Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” comic book universe. He even got an ID card signed by Barack Obama and everything. But even though he’s earned the right to be one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, not everyone on his team actually agrees with that sentiment.
Before he loaned his voice to the genocidal robot Ultron in the latest Avengers movie, James Spader played the enigmatic CEO Robert California on The Office. And when you put Robert California’s words in Ultron’s metal mouth, the results are delightfully unhinged.
Prop builders have created some awesome costumes in the recent past, but this might be one of the coolest: a life-sized Hulkbuster.
I was kind of hoping to write a review of the Avengers: Age of Ultron DVD/Blu-Ray that went something like, “If you were one of the people who didn’t love the Avengers sequel, this new DVD will change your mind.” Alas, I can’t write that, because it’s probably not true.
When Agents of SHIELD began, its first season revolved around building up towards the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Now there’s another Captain America movie coming out next spring, and we can already see how Agents of SHIELD is laying some track down for it. Spoilers ahead...
Avengers: Age of Ultron was pretty disjointed in places, but the disjointed-est moment had to be the scene of Thor thrashing about in that pool, hallucinating something-or-other, for no apparent reason. Now the full, original scene has shown up online, and it explains exactly what the hell Thor was doing... although…
Just look at it. Look at that action figure and try not to hear a pithy remark from the voice of James Spader. This Ultron figure isn’t just amazing-looking, it’s here to snidely judge everything on your desk or toyshelf while doing so!
Next month, Marvel is introducing a whole new line up of comics—and a whole new universe to go with them. Don’t know your Earth-616 from your Earth-65? What the hell is with this Secret Wars thing? Will your favorite hero still have a comic? Will they even be the same person? Here’s everything you need to know going…
The X-Files, Heroes and Twin Peaks are all coming back to our screens soon, with at least some of the original castmembers returning. Sounds great—except that this sort of thing doesn’t always work out. Here are the most ignominious examples of classic TV shows that were reanimated...but they came back wrong.
