Received this late yesterday and didn’t have time to post until now. Marvel sent one of their cryptic messages that said “September 10, 2007”, and included the full image you can see after the jump. Things don’t look good for the X-Men, and hopefully we’ll here more on Monday.
Or – “The Line Between Hero And Monster…” So far during the WWH crossover, we’ve seen Hulk fighting the United States army, the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and successfully taken over the entire island of Manhattan. Nobody questions that his actions are justifiable to himself, and honestly, some of the people he’s put the hurting on richly deserved it (I’m lookin’ at you, Mr. Stark!) but we’ve seen edges of a darker path in his actions. Now that he’s gathered his enemies in one place, Hulk now has to make the decision indulging his basest urges for revenge and living
Tobey Maguire is reported to be producing and in consideration for the leading role in the Warner Bros. big screen adaptation of Robotech. A sprawling sci-fi epic, “Robotech” takes place at a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology on an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific isle. Mankind is forced to use the technology to fend off three successive waves of alien invasions. The first invasion concerns a battle with a race of giant warriors who seek to retrieve their flagship’s energy source known as “protoculture,” and the planet’s survival ends up in the

Although with the recent troubles Suncoast has had, you better get there in the next 30 days before the company declares bankruptcy. via Diamond Select Toys
Or – “More Secrets, Hints, and Inveiglement.” One of the inherent problems of a title like this is the nature of secrets. The launch of New Warriors was (unusually, for a comic release) kept very mysterious, but the danger is that once the secrets are revealed, people will lose interest. So far we’ve seen the identity of Wondra, Blackwing, and Decibel, and they all have a connection to a certain upstate academy of higher learning with a hyper-sonic jet under the basketball court. Given Marvel’s historical predilection for loading titles with recognizable characters, adding a ‘high-concept’ hook, and seeing if

But rather than stumble upon the militants they are expecting to find, they encounter a demon-like menace unlike the world has ever seen and must re-think their strategy and figure out a way
