January 5, 2012 7:04 pm The spirit of Stan Lee is alive and (presumably) well in Stan Lee himself, also.
January 3, 2012 9:12 pm This is one of my favorite books. I especially love the collections that printed in oversized hardcovers so that they can fit in right next to the D&D rule books on my shelf.
December 3, 2011 12:05 am The Celestials are 2,000 foot tall space gods that experimented on humankind in our prehistory and are the reason people can get superpowers in the Marvel U. Because of the Celestials' tampering some humans have this genetic 'x-factor' that enables superpowers -- some of them are born with them like mutants, and others require some sort of catalyst for their powers to awaken (cosmic rays, gamma bombs, etc.) The Celestials return every few years to judge mankind (with either a thumbs up or thumbs down since they don't speak). Apocalypse's headquarters and all of his advanced technology were derived from discarded Celestial technology, as well.
November 29, 2011 4:45 pm I can only stomach so much of the outcast-hated-by-the-world X-Men. It makes no sense in the Marvel U that super-powered people like the Avengers and the FF would be accepted and loved but that people that born with superpowers are hated and have government built robots hunting them. It works better in the X-Men movies where the only people with superpowers are all mutants themselves. I love it when the X-Men go cosmic. This looks beautiful, and more importantly, fun.
November 26, 2011 7:39 pm It's great to see Andrea Di Vito return for the entire issue - hopefully, this will be the end of the multiple artists per issue situation.
November 5, 2011 5:11 am Seeing such a sweet FFF sketch does my heart good.
October 24, 2011 8:45 pm I'll be 40 in January. I've been reading comics since 1976.
October 12, 2011 1:00 pm I wish he did the interiors on the IDW Godzilla book.
October 6, 2011 5:04 pm One Man Army Corps is still the coolest acronym ever.
September 24, 2011 12:49 pm I love LoSH, I love all of the characters, but hadn't been reading recently so I thought this would be a great jumping on point, what with it being issue #1 and all. Boy was I wrong.
