A Marvel Heroes player who goes by EITTurtle bought the game on Xbox in July. Since then, he says he’s sunk $400 in microtransactions, unlocking characters like Spider Man, Storm, and Captain America. Earlier this week, Marvel announced that the game’s servers will be shut down in December. And EITTurtle, like many…
This morning at 6:51 AM, I received an e-mail from Netflix with the subject line: “Suspicious activity █████ Marvel on Netflix █████” Though I was curious as to what was going on, I left the e-mail unopened because just last week, Netflix was in the news for being linked to a phishing scam.
Dearest io9ers, this is it: After many years and almost as many job titles, it is time for me to say goodbye.
Poor Jocasta Nu. Ever since she lorded over the Jedi Temple’s hoard of holobooks in Attack of the Clones she’s been the butt of endless jokes about having to forgo being a mystical warrior in order to be... well, a librarian with the galaxy’s most lethal reading light. But in this week’s Darth Vader, she’s the Jedi’s…
Donald Trump’s presidency has seen the words “Make America Great Again”—a.k.a. MAGA—plastered all over the U.S., from placards to stickers to the infamous red hats. One of the last places you’d expect to see it, however, is on the side of a toy Transformers car in an alien language. And yet, it seems here we are.
In the year 2030, a powerful radio transmission originating from Earth will arrive at a potentially habitable exoplanet located approximately 12.4 light years away. Should any alien intelligence be there to receive it, they’re in for quite a treat: This binary stream of data contains short musical clips from some of…
If there’s one thing that is a constant about Doctor Who’s multi-Doctor adventures, it’s a distaste for the TARDIS’ current “decoration” by former incarnations of its pilot. So it’s good to see that the First Doctor will be carrying on the tradition this Christmas.
Listen, I give all the props in the world to genre fiction for its persistent casting of stage actors in its projects. That said, we need to have a talk about how, having catapulted to fame through one such franchise, everyone feels the need to go do Hamlet. Stop doing Hamlet.
One of the biggest messes that still remains from the bleak fallout of Secret Empire is actually one of the event’s first shocking moments: the complete destruction of the city of Las Vegas, on Stevil Rogers’ orders. Now, Stephen Strange wants to try and fix it... but he only manages to make things much worse.
Battlefront II, the new video game where you can play as Bossk before you spend a dozen hours unlocking Luke Skywalker, has a slavish dedication to fancy graphics and Star Wars action. Unlike its predecessor, it has a whole new Star Wars story to tell. But while it starts promisingly, it ends up being a far too…
Rooster Teeth’s first Lazer Team film happened because fans crowdsourced it into existence. The result was a dumb, fun comedy in the vein of Ghostbusters, with impressive visual effects. Now there’s a sequel, and as you can see from this exclusive new clip, not much has changed.
A big part of what’s made Vita Ayala’s writing in comics like Wonder Woman, Bitch Planet, and Batman Beyond so strong is the way their storytelling is formed by their deeply personal, powerful politics. In The Wilds, their new upcoming series from Black Mask Studios with illustrations by Emily Pearson, their focus…
When the Disney theme parks open their two Star Wars themed lands in 2019, the name in the brochure will be “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.” But Galaxy’s Edge is actually a new planet, revealed today to be called Batuu.
After six years keeping watching over the House of Ideas, Axel Alonso is parting ways with Marvel Comics to make way for the publisher’s newest editor-in-chief: longtime editor and president of Marvel’s international brand management C. B. Cebulski.
So far, most of Warner Bros.’ films based on DC Comics characters haven’t had the kinds of ending credits sequences that are staples of Marvel’s movies. That all changes with Justice League, with a major hint about a future challenge to the team’s heroes.
One nice thing about teddy bears is that if your dog tears the head off of your child’s favorite one, you can just sew it back on. But you don’t proclaim your achievement a “wild success”—rather, you say, “here, I have fixed your lifeless play-thing.”
