Who wants to bet that The Avengers stomp all over the box office again this weekend? It would be cool if the movie hit the $2 billion mark, but there are too many obstacles that will prevent that from happening. Avengers fever is at an all time high, and that means artists are coming out of the woodwork with their take on the super hero team. Today, it’s Denis Medri, an Italian comic book illustrator.
The biggest problem with universe-spanning crossovers these days is that if you miss an issue of ANYTHING, you come back into the next chapter feeling like Shemp when he needed cheese. What does the new hub of the Marvel Universe have in store this week?
“The Avengers” fever has hit the world by storm, with the newly-released feature film racking up huge box office numbers and critical acclaim, and interest in all things related to the blockbuster franchise soaring. What could be better for fans than meeting some of the men and women who have made the characters and stories such a huge hit?
I figured The Avengers was going to break the one billion dollar mark, I just didn’t think it was going to happen in less than a month. Disney announced on Sunday that the Marvel superhero team movie cross the billion dollar mark just 19 days after release, making this one of five Disney flicks to have hit this milestone.
LEGO has been releasing fantastic ready-to-build sets for years, but the possibilities of the little bricks shine most when used in free form. Take the jump and see the props one fan has created. Avengers Assemble!
Earlier this year, Marvel changed how the world experienced digital comics with Avengers VS. X-Men #1 Infinite.

Representing the latest form of comic book storytelling using tablets and smartphones as a new canvas, each new Marvel Infinite Comic continues to take advantage of modern technology while staying true to medium’s greatest strengths!
Yesterday’s MS-QOTD referenced (but did not fully reveal) one of the spoilery moments from the new Avengers movie, causing one Faithful Spoilerite to remark on how callously commonplace it has become to find casual revelations of shocking moments that might adversely affect other people’s enjoyment. Ironically for someone who has spent half a decade writing for a site called ‘Major Spoilers’, I routinely try to avoid big plot reveals, preferring to make indirect references in respect to those who don’t (or don’t want to) know. Part of that stems from an incident in college where I was chastised by a schoolmate for joking about the spoiler at the end of Citizen Kane, a movie then half-a-century old!
The MS-QOTD (pronounced either “Romanadvoratrelundar” or “Fred”) is one of personal choice: How long is long enough to wait before a spoiler is no longer a spoiler?
You might have heard a little bit about this new “Avengers” movie, and a few of the interesting reveals set up therein. Without giving too much away, Loki’s army of Chitauri foot-soldiers implies the potential existence of at least part of Marvel’s cosmic reality, and coupled with implications of a Guardians of the Galaxy movie project, the possibilities of Nova, The Silver Surfer, or even a Kree-Skrull war film dance like sugarplums in my big rubbery head.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is thusly expressed: Which of Marvel’s space-faring characters do you MOST want to see on the big screen?
