This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: Five Weapons, Bruce Lee, and the Man of Tai Chi! DC Comics moves to California, Uncanny X-Men #13, and Superman #24.
Or – “A Book That Has Repeatedly Set Me Off…”
The first issue of Uncanny Avengers ended with a moment that crossed the line from awesome into WTF territory, and the comic hasn’t slowed its roll since. Certain moments have been excellent, and I like the cast as a whole, but it seems that every issue has a moment that makes me sit back, agog with disbelief. Will #9 wow or will it go down in flames? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Marvel has released a sneak peek of Uncanny Avengers by Rick Remender and Daniel Acuna.
After a very intriguing opening arc, I was excited to sit down and spend some time with the latest issue of UNCANNY AVENGERS. Little did I know that the contents of this book would ignite a controversy involving race, inclusion, and assimilation vs. integration. What impact did these weighty thoughts place upon my reading enjoyment? Hit the jump, faithful Spoilerites, and join in the debate.
Marvel is pleased to announce Uncanny Avengers #8AU from the blockbuster team of Rick Remender, Gerry Duggan & Adam Kubert! This May, the Uncanny Avengers must band together and make their way throughout this new dystopian world. But when The Apocalypse Twins and Kang are involved, will they make it out of the Age of Ultron in one piece? And when Havok and Rogue set off to save the Morlocks, what secret will Rogue unearth about the Twin’s hidden past?
Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Uncanny Avengers #3, that you can check out, after the jump.
Uncanny by definition means strange and mysterious in a disturbing way; it’s an appropriate word for this roster of Avengers: Havok, Captain America, Thor, Rogue, Scarlet Witch, and Wolverine. Brought together by Captain America to promote mutant and human co-existence, they combat a renewed fear and hatred for the mutant rebirth. However, with these heroes still distrustful of one another, can Havok, their appointed leader, unite them against an old powerful foe, the Red Skull?
Another month of comic sales data has found its way to the Major Spoilers In Box, and the results are not so good for DC Comics.
