Jessica Jones, a former costumed superhero, is now the sole owner and employee of Alias Investigative Services – a small private investigative firm.
But dark secrets from her superhero past haunt her, affecting her relationships and happiness.
Amazing Spider-Man and Captain Universe’s Uni-Power
Captain Universe is endowed with the Uni-Power, a sentient energy field that seeks out people in great peril and bonds with them. In another sense, it is every person–it is the potential for heroism that lives in each of us.
When the Uni-Power chooses a partner, it endows that person (or, rarely, persons) with the powers, memories, and costume of Captain Universe. The partner can use the powers of Captain Universe until the peril is surmounted. However, if the partner tries to use those powers for personal gain or for evil, the Uni-Power immediately deserts them.
When a lab accident granted Spider-Man the Uni-Power, his costume was cosmically changed into the Captain Universe outfit by the Uni-Power. This form gave him incredibly enhanced senses, strength, speed, flight, a new costume and limited telekinesis.

After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

Amadeus Cho is in self exile in deep space wen he gets a distress call from Sakaar. When his ship lands on the planet surface, he is captured and forced to fight in a gladiatorial arena by the evil despot known as The Warlord of Sakaar.
In the climactic battle between the two, the warlord unleashes his version of a worldbreaker, a Cold War era tactical nuke (how he got it is not explained) and drops right on top of the jade giants pointy coif.
We know that the Hulk can absorb nuclear energy, but so far the upper limits have not really been shown yet. My hypothesis is that the angrier he is the more he can absorb and you can see here, he was pretty angry…
In Infinity Countdown #1 (2018) it looks like Marvel has changed the colors of the Infinity Stones to match their MCU counter parts and tweaked how they work. The stones (formerly called Gems) form a circuit when combined with each other forming a positive feedback loop unlocking their full potential and releasing the INFINITE power stored inside. The gems true potential lie within the users mastery of them individually.
The stones have always been mysterious and a subject of debate and discussion for years so it’s fun to see them fleshed out a bit more. I prefer the still have a twinge of mystery, but that’s just me.
Here are the new owners and new descriptions of the stones:
• The Soul Stone is powered by the user’s mastery of Reality. It can preserve the soul to allow for life after death.
Current owner: Ultron
Location: Ego The Living Planet (mobile)

Current “Owners”: Nova Corps & The Guardians of the Galaxy
Location: The desert planet of Xitaung.
• The Space Stone is powered by the user’s mastery of Power. It can allow teleportation through space.
Current Owner: Wolverine

From: Avengers #484 (Red Zone part 4 of 5)
The Red Skull has infiltrated the US Government and released a biological weapon in the form of a red mist at the base of Mount Rushmore. As the mist encroaches into nearby populated areas it kills everyone in its path and it’s up to the Avengers to stop him!
It’s a fairly basic story, bad guy intent on mass murder and the good guys have to stop him. It’s a good read with the highlight of Black Panther laying some serious smack down by brutally beating down the Skull and viciously breaking his jaw.
Black Panther is not your ordinary Marvel Comics film. It has begun a cultural movement all its own. As a black man, I can’t remember the last time a movie with a black director and a predominately all black cast has made such a splash in the mainstream cultural consciousness in such a positive way. It’s so amazing to see all these young black kids (and adults) coming out and supporting this movie, its cast and director Ryan Coogler. It’s an astonishing and humbling site to see.
Is it a good movie though? I’m not going to let my blackness get in the way of looking at this film with a critical eye…. but the answer is yes. So lets talk about it.
The general plot of the movie is that Wakanda is an isolationist nation that has never been conquered or colonized by an outsider. This due to the mountain sized vibranium deposit that was left when a meteor crashed in Africa millions of years ago. The vibranium powers all of their technology. Everything from medicine and transportation to the weapons of war and self defense. As a nation that is entirely self sufficient, they are also loathe to lend aid to others. A similar analogy would be like feeding the birds at the park. It starts with just one, but before you know it, you have a whole flock at your feet.
— Read More: Black Panther: Where is Wakanda?
This movie takes place after the events of Captain America 3: Civil War where King T’Chaka was killed by an explosion leaving young T’Challa in charge of a nation. Wakanda and its new king T’Challa, played exceptionally by Chadwick Boseman, want to protect their isolationist way of life from Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan.
Killmonger feels like Wakanda is hoarding its technology and wants to use Wakandan advanced weapons and technology to wage war on the rest of the world. Particularly those who he feels are currently oppressing peoples of color be it local police on up to governments.
— Read More: Black Panther: Who is the Black Panther?
The movie is beautifully shot with epic sweeping cinematography. Wakanda is fleshed out with vibrant bustling streets, techno-organic skyscrapers, kids rushing off to school, young people jubilantly carousing about in cafes, waiting for sky car taxis, cooking street food and generally going about their business. It’s definitely the most life like city in all of the Marvel Universe.
And the costumes. Oh my god, the costumes. Ruth E. Carter, costume designer completely nails the afro-futurism look by blending the history and traditions of tribes from all over Africa. With 30 years of movie experience and two Oscar nominations for her work (on Malcolm X and Amistad), Carter understood the role clothing would play in shaping the film’s world. “Wakandans are serious about fashion,” Carter via said The Atlantic, of the inhabitants of Black Panther’s tech-forward, eco-conscious, never-before-colonized country. Her vision for Wakandan dress draws from traditional and contemporary African fashion. Sartorial cues help viewers understand the social geography of a fictional place—its political ideologies, cultural norms, etiquette. It’s easier to convey these unspoken elements when a film is set in a space and time the audience already has some reference for. For example, American viewers can read the message of a certain dress or hairstyle in, say, 1960s Alabama, which worked in Carter’s favor when she was designing the costumes for Selma.
The impressive score is crafted by Ludwig Goransson. The score is as textured and layered like the costumes as it blends and layers traditional African drums and vocalizations with a sweeping grandiosity usually reserved for epic films like Lawrence of Arabia, Out of Africa and dare I say it, Star Wars.
The cast rounds out the movie with powerhouse performances. Chadwick Boseman is a bit understated bringing a quiet maturity and presence to each scene, however I felt that the movie would have benefited from a bit more range from him.
The runaway star of the show, the scene-stealer is far and away is Shuri, the younger sister of T’Challa and played by Letitia Wright. She’s insanely smart, developing most if not all of the “Panther-tech”, plucky, irreverent and best of all: absolutely fearless. If you are a fan and reader of the Black Panther comics, you already know that at some point Shuri dons the mantle of the Black Panther and becomes the protector of Wakanda. I’m hoping this is something we will seen in the inevitable sequel as word has it, Kevin Feige has already asked Ryan Coogler to return.
This film does have some issues however. So lets talk about those too.
First off, the fight choreography isn’t my favorite. While Danai Gurira shines bright in her scenes as General Okoye, leader of the all female Dora Milaje, the same can’t really be said for most of the scenes involving hand to hand combat. The shots are cut quickly and the camera is way too close to see any meaningful movements. It’s tends to be a jumble of arms, legs and other flailing limbs. Aside from this action scenes (the car chase aside) end a few short minutes after they begin.
The CGI (especially during the final fight between Killmonger and T’Challa) is just plain bad. It looks unfinished is really the only way to describe it and seeing how well everything else is in the movie it’s really unfortunate and distracting.
This shouldn’t deter you from seeing the movie however. Not in the slightest. It’s a cultural milestone and I am anxiously looking forward to revisiting T’Challa, Shuri, Okoye and Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther 2.
Go see it. Now. This isn’t just a movie. It’s a movement.

I gotta admit, I’m not a fan of a solo Venom movie without Spider-Man. I just don’t see the point. There’s a reason why Venom works as a villain. He’s (at least at first) the antithesis of Spider-Man, the dark version, the other side of the coin. The appeal of Venom is his juxtaposition against Spider-Man and the deep rooted psychological rivalry between Eddie Brock and Peter Parker.
In my opinion, on his own, Venom just isn’t that interesting unless he’s facing off against Spider-Man or it’s the Venom: Space Knight iteration or Venom: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
But this movie doesn’t seem to be going in that direction at all. As a matter of fact, I can’t really tell what direction this movie is going because the trailer doesn’t really show anything. There’s lots of cars flying around, some explosions, the back of Tom Hardy’s head, Tom Hardy running in the woods and a microsecond shot of what appears to be the symbiote trapped in a glass container.
It just boggles my mind in this age of The Avengers, Deadpool, Justice League, Steppenwolf, et cetera, they would deliberately go out of their way to NOT show the character the movie is named after.
That’s not the way to hype your movie Sony.
Future trailers desperately need a tease or a reveal of the symbiote and some meaningful action scenes or it will be DOA. See the trailer below and let me know what you think.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics characters Scott Lang / Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne / Wasp. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to 2015’s Ant-Man, and the twentieth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Peyton Reed with a screenplay by the writing team of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Paul Rudd, and the writing team of Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. The film stars Rudd as Lang and Evangeline Lilly as van Dyne, alongside Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, Lang teams up with van Dyne to embark on a new mission from Hank Pym.
Ant-Man and the Wasp debuts on July 6th, 2018.
The best way would be to watch them in order of their release date. The films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have released in three phases. Which order did you watch the movies in?
The Avengers Initiative (a.k.a Phase 1) was a secret project created by S.H.I.E.L.D. to create the Avengers, a collection of the most able individuals to defend Earth from imminent global threats; these individuals functioning as a response team to said threats which are too great for the forces of mankind to handle.
The Initiative was scrapped by the World Security Council after the alien incursion in New Mexico in favor of a weapons development program known as Phase 2. It was eventually reactivated in 2012 during the Chitauri Invasion.
In response to the events in New Mexico and the revelation of alien worlds and powers beyond our own, the World Security Council scrapped the Avengers Initiative in favor of a more practical approach– the development of weapons powered by the alien Tesseract.
Phase Three is set during a time of discord generated from the aftermath of Ultron‘s attack against the Earth. With public opinion of superheroes becoming increasingly divided, the Avengers become fragmented. In the midst of the Avengers’ turmoils, a number of new characters are introduced, such as Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Mantis, Spider-Man, Valkyrie, and Captain Marvel. Thanos‘ plot to collect all of the Infinity Stones, which began late in Phase One, is drawn to a close in this saga.

Who is Ego the Living Planet? If you just watched Guardians of the Galaxy you know that Ego, played by Kurt Russell is Peter Quill aka Star Lord’s father. In the comics he has a similar origin as he explains in the movie, except he is not the father of any of the superheroes in the Guardians. (Unless this has been retconned. If so, let me know.)
So exactly who is he? What is he? Where did he come from? Keep reading for more answers…
I was digging around my old comic book archives looking for more stray trading cards and came across a few old issues of The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. These official handbooks were compiled character profiles that were assembled into issues before Marvel started publishing them in the large hardcover format.
I flipped through a few pages and landed right on Ego the Living Planet! I had been meaning to do a profile since watching Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend but this saved me a ton of time. I scanned the two Ego pages and posted them here. I don’t think Ego has really changed much since this was printed, but if it has then please let me know!
I was digging around in my old comic book boxes in the basement last night and came across this old shiny “hologram” Wolverine trading card. It was sticking in the corner of the box and when I pulled it out, I also pulled out some old memories of riding my bike to the comic book store in the early 90’s with $10 bucks in my pocket and buying up all the latest Jim Lee and Rob Liefeld “X-books” and the Todd McFarlane “Spider-Man” comics. I kept on digging through my old comic book box and unearth these treasures (along with a handful of Terminator 2 trading cards). I decided to scan them and add them here for posterity. I’m not sure what sets they come from, all I really know is that I bought them around 1991-1992. If you have any additional information or cards of your own like these, lets talk about it!
This the Wolverine “hologram” card. I’m pretty sure I remember getting the Magneto hologram card too. I’ll look for that one.
Guardians of the Galaxy manages to keep the heart and spirit of adventure from the prequel and inject a new level of weirdness into the sequel and it is 100% appreciated by this comic book fan.
I really loved this movie. When I said there is a new level of weirdness in Vol. 2, I meant it in the best way possible. In this movie we are literally walking around on a friggin Living Planet! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 features the group who has now, through a series of adventures and misadventures, begun to mesh together as a team and family. They lend out their special talents to others, in this movie a race of genetically perfect, super pretentious, gold skinned people called “The Sovereign”, to take on threats that would send other people running for the space hills.
That’s all I can really say about this movie for now because the longer I talk about it the more I’ll want to reveal some spoilers! If you haven’t seen it, I definitely recommend going as soon as you can. It’s worth the full price of admission, especially if you were a fan of the prequel.
What did you think about the movie? Have you seen it yet? How many times have you seen it? Comment below and let me know.

+ Amazing visuals and soundtrack.
+ Some truly touching and heartbreaking moments.

Galactus travels through space…
The world devourer pauses when he detects the thoughts of a powerful creature and decides to seek out its source as his hunger is mounting once more. Taking a smaller craft, Galactus flies into the Black Galaxy and finds himself before Ego the Living Planet.
While aboard the Rigellian flagship, Thor meets with the Rigellian commander and the Recorder to determine their plan of attack against Galactus. With their course set, Thor and the Recorder travel off in a ship to confront Galactus himself. The Recorder detects that Galactus is within the Black Galaxy and the two speed off to meet their foe there. They are spied by a group called the Wanderers, a group of aliens that have survived the destruction of their worlds at the hands of Galactus and seek revenge against the world destroyer and they decide to follow after Thor and the Recorder.
Finally, back in the Black Galaxy, Galactus and Ego boast about their mutual power and Galactus demands to consume Ego’s energies. Ego tries to stop this by unleashing a furious blast at Galactus, the force of which reaches Thor and the Recorder’s ship destroying it and seemingly killing its passengers.
Thor and the Rigellian Recorder have traveled into the “Bio-Verse” where they meet Ego the Living Planet. Wanting to have a dialogue with with the two visitors, Ego changes his environment to one that the two visitors find familiar, and creating a Asgardian themed Avatar to show them around, as well as give them a show of his vast powers.
Ego explains to Thor that he intends to beat Thor in combat, rationalizing if he can defeat the Thunder God, then nothing can stop him from taking over the world. Dissolving his avatar, Ego forms an army of anti-bodies to battle Thor and the Recorder. Forced with fighting these mindless drones and deal with Ego constantly shifting the planets shape. Fighting off the anti-bodies, Thor and the Recorder are then sucked into the arterized tunnels of Ego’s being.

They are called The Hand – An organization of ninjas, thieves and assassins. Originally banding together 800 years ago to fight off the oppressive system of feudal Japan, The Hand turned to corruption and darkness when the mutinous Snakeroot Clan seized power.
Over the years, they’ve come into conflict with many super humans – Spider-Man, The Avengers and the X-Men to name a few – but none of the feuds compared to their war with Daredevil. Matt Murdock’s ties to The Hand run deep; his mentor, Stick, died trying to destroy The Hand, and his former lover, Elektra, served The Had as an assassin for many years, nearly losing her soul in the process.
So when The Hand sought Daredevil out to become their new leader, he was understandably confused. He initially rejected their offer, but eventually consented, plotting to use the organization as a force for good When his arch-enemy Bullseye destroyed a city block – and killed 107 people in the process – Daredevil resolved to turn The Hand into an army of protectors.
Over the ensuing months, they’ve confronted crime and corruption on the streets of New York – with brutal force. As Daredevil’s power within the group has grown, so has his willingness to push the limits in order to keep the peace. He sought to change The Hand but it appears The Hand has changed him.

Tyrone “Ty” Johnson (Cloak) and Tandy Bowen (Dagger) met in New York City as runaways. Tyrone was a 17-year-old boy from Boston, Massachusetts with a debilitating stutter and ran away to New York City when his speech impediment prevented him from stopping his friend from being shot by police, who mistakenly believed he had just robbed a store. Tandy was a 16-year-old girl from a privileged upbringing (born in Shaker Heights, Ohio) who ran away because her multi-millionaire supermodel mother was too busy with her career and social life to spend time with her daughter. When they met, Tyrone considered stealing Tandy’s purse, but before he could, a thief stole the purse and Tyrone retrieved it for her.
Afterwards, they had dinner and became fast friends. When naïve Tandy accepted an offer of shelter from some strange men, wary Tyrone went along to protect her. The two teens were soon forcibly delivered to criminal chemist Simon Marshall developing a new synthetic heroin for Silvermane and the Maggia, testing it on runaway teens with fatal results. Johnson and Bowen somehow survived injections of the drug, and they fled.
During their escape, the drug turned them into superpowered beings Tyrone found himself engulfed in darkness and seized by a strange hunger which eased in the presence of Tandy glowing with a brilliant light. Trying to hide his newly shadowy appearance in a makeshift cloak, Tyrone began absorbing Marshall’s thugs into his darkness while Tandy struck them down with daggers of light. The two teens dubbed themselves “Cloak & Dagger” and declared war on drug crime in combating drug-dealers and helping runaway children.
At the end of this first issue you get a good sense of Cloak and Daggers power set. Dagger displays Olympic level gymnastics skills by jumping over a charging thug, evading gunfire and taking out a room full of armed men. And Cloak shows off his dark force by sucking in the bad guys and terrorizing their souls.
Another important scene shows that Tandy’s light has a pleasing effect on Tyrone, calming him and keeping the dark dimension at bay.

Ahh it feels good to be posting about The Odinson once again. Thor and Beta Ray Bill are my two favorite characters in the Marvel Universe and I’m glad they are reunited in The Unworthy Thor. For those who haven’t been following, The Unworthy Thor picks up after the death of The Watcher and the events of Secret Wars 3. Thor was rendered “unworthy” by a yet-still-undisclosed whisper from Nick Fury. Thor dropped the mystic hammer Mjolnir on the Moon and was unable to pick it up. However Jane Foster, who was dying from cancer, was able to pick up the sacred weapon thus becoming the female version of The Mighty Thor. Battling with his axe Jarnbjorn and trusty war-goats Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder against the rock troll Ulik on the moon, the Odinson receives a tip from a mysterious stranger known as The Unseen that “another” Mjolnir is present in this dimension.
This run marks the return of Olivier Coipel to the series who in my opinion is one of the best artists working today and my favorite Thor artist since Walt Simonson. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and pick up his run of Thor (2010) with writer J. Michael Stracznski. (and Spider-Verse, and AvX) The writer is Jason Aaron who wrote, X-Men Schism, Avengers vs. X-Men (Co-written with Brian Michael Bendis) and one of my all-time favorite Wolverine one-shots; The Man in the Pit. The Unworthy Thor is definitely worth your time.
The Story so far…
On the day Thor Odinson learned a long-kept secret stolen from The Watcher, he dropped the mystic hammer Mjolnir to the surface of the moon. Try as he might, Thor could not lift his once-faithful weapon. Unable to possess the power of his birthright, the thunder god relinquished the name of Thor and now simply calls himself Odinson. Now he searches for redemption, but until he finds it, he will remain….
The Unworthy Thor
When the being known as The Unseen alerted him to the existence of another hammer on old Asgard, Odinson raced to the ruins of his former home, but found the entire realm missing. Fortunately his old friend, Beta Ray Bill knew who had stolen it: The Collector. Outmatched, the pair were captured and imprisoned.
But The Collector isn’t the only one after the hammer. Aided by a mysterious ally, the imprisoned Thanos unleashed his lackeys – Black Swan and Proxima Midnight – on The Collectors ship. Meanwhile, Odinson and Beta Ray Bill broke out and freed the murderous Hel-Hound Thori and Odinson’s trusty steed Toothgnasher.
After mistakenly targeting Stormbreaker, Beta Ray Bill’s hammer, Thanos’ servants confronted The Collector and battled for the possession of the Ultimate Thor’s hammer. But Odinson and his friends are coming for them…

Some set pictures from The Defenders have hit the Twitterverse! The first set of pics shows Misty Knight and Jessica Jones meeting on the street. Perhaps for the first time? Jessica looks in pretty rough shape (more than usual?) with blood splattered on her face and clothes. Misty has an incredulous look on her face so i’m guess this is their first meeting or maybe Misty has figured out that Jessica is a metahuman. What do you think?
