    Kelly Thompson bids farewell to CAPTAIN MARVEL with a double-sized finale issue in June

    By JayC,

    This June marks the end of an era for Carol Danvers! Writer Kelly Thompson will wrap up her extraordinary run on the character in CAPTAIN MARVEL #50, a double-sized issue featuring art by Javier Pina and David Lopez. As one of the longest-running writers on the character ever, Thompson’s run will go down in Marvel Comics history: 50 issues of thrilling adventure, uplifting character-defining breakthroughs, and awesome powerhouse feats that are destined to inspire generation after generation of readers! From incredible story arcs like the revolutionary “Re-Entry” and Carol’s dark turn in “The Last Avenger” to pivotal tie-ins to some of Marvel’s biggest events like War of the Realms and Empyre, CAPTAIN MARVEL has been a Marvel must-read since the very start. Along the way, the title has garnered new lifelong Carol Danvers fans and delighted the character’s devoted fanbase. True Believers won’t want to miss Thompson’s epic farewell that celebrates this incredible achievement!

    It has been an impossible journey – one that’s taken Carol Danvers across time and space and pitted her against enemies new and old. This historic run has put Marvel’s premier heroine through the gauntlet, and now the boss of space burns brighter than ever. No one believed she would get this far. But that’s the power of Captain Marvel and her Carol Corps: They will never give up. Higher, further, faster – to the very end.

    "When Marvel asked me to write Carol's new Captain Marvel series back in 2018, in the lead up to her first film, I was delighted and also terrified. But I'm glad I didn't let the terror win, because it has truly been a fantastic experience,” Thompson shared. “I've worked with some of the most incredible people in the business -- I'd list them all but at 50 issues it's a truly massive list! -- but I certainly have to call out editor Sarah Brunstad who brought me in and helped build this book from the very beginning. She has been a constant source of support through a run that I don't think either of us ever imagined would be nearly five years deep and heading toward issue 50. While it hasn't always been easy, I'm so proud of the stories we've told with Carol, but none of it would have been possible without the fans. Captain Marvel fans are some of the best comic fans -- and humans -- I've ever experienced, truly. So thank you for this run. We made it, but you all made it so loved, and so long. Thank you.”

    Marvel Studios Veteran Victoria Alonso Exits After 17 Years

    By Outsiders,

    After 17 years, Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso stepped down from her position and parted ways with Marvel on Friday.  The reasons for the exit are unclear.

    Starting out in 2006, as chief of visual effects and postproduction, Alonso launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a co-producer on 2008’s Iron Man.  She continued to serve as a co-producer on Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011), and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).  Alonso became an executive producer on The Avengers (2012) and worked on numerous Disney+ TV series. In 2021, she was promoted to president of physical and postproduction, visual effects, and animation production.

    Besides Alonso taking part in many behind-the-scenes projects, she was an important ambassador for the studio’s representation efforts and was outspoken during Disney’s dispute with Florida over its “Don’t Say Gay” bill. “As long as I am at Marvel Studios, I will fight for representation,” Alonso, who is gay, said at the time.

    A Second Marvel Legends Squadron Supreme 2-Pack Coming In 2023?!?

    By JayC,

    Last week we saw the Marvel Legends Squadron Supreme Hyperion and Doctor Spectrum 2-Pack from Hasbro go up for pre-order at places like our sponsors BigBadToyStore.com and Entertainment Earth.

    Well it looks like Hasbro is going all in on the Squad this year as we have seen listings pop up for a second Squadron Supreme 2-Pack coming later this year. The second set looks like will include Supreme members Nighthawk and Blur. Like with Hyperion in the first 2-pack, we have already gotten a Nighthawk figure in the Marvel Legends line before. Since these characters have had multiple looks over years I can't say how exactly the figures will appear and the images below are for reference only, and of course these have yet to be officially confirmed by Hasbro so we will treat this as RUMOR for now.

    I made Quicksilver out of the 5 inch Toy Biz figures. He is designed to look like he was animated in the series. Musculature was added to the Spider-Man "bug busters" body and more detail to the Toy Biz Quick silver head.  Hope you like him>

    The Fall Of X Begins At This Year's Hellfire Gala And Calls For The Return Of The Uncanny Avengers

    By JayC,

    Fans who tuned into Marvel Unlimited’s X-Men: 60 Uncanny Years Live Virtual Event today got the exclusive scoop on what’s on the horizon for mutantkind! Announced by X-Men architect Gerry Duggan in a special video message, an all-new run of UNCANNY AVENGERS will kick off this August, spinning out July’s X-MEN: HELLFIRE GALA one-shot where FALL OF X, the X-Men’s upcoming era, will officially begin!

    Hellfire Gala

    The Hellfire Gala is always the biggest event of the season…but this year’s will upend Krakoa as we know it. What is meant to be mutantkind’s greatest night becomes their worst nightmare as the FALL OF X begins! Written by Gerry Duggan alongside an all-star lineup of artists including Kris Anka, Joshua Cassara, Russell Dauterman, Adam Kubert, Pepe Larraz, R.B. Silva, and Luciano Vecchio, X-MEN: HELLFIRE GALA #1 will be a giant-sized one-shot that propels mutankind into an unpredictable future. All your favorite X-Men are going to be left reeling after a series of shocking revelations, stunning betrayals, horrifying tragedy, impossible deaths…and more. Fans will also see their favorite heroes from throughout the Marvel Universe turn out in the most glamorous looks of the year and witness the reveal of the all-new X-Men lineup, including the winner of this year’s X-Men Fan Vote! Page after page of jaw dropping moments that no one will seeing coming, all in one CANNOT-MISS package!

    Uncanny Avengers

    THE FALL OF X will be a major turning point for the X-Men franchise that will see huge changes in current ongoing X-titles and the launch of multiple exciting new series! The devastating events of the Hellfire Gala and the tragic circumstances of FALL OF X calls for the return of the Avengers’ Unity Squad in a new run of UNCANNY AVENGERS written by Gerry Duggan and drawn by Javier Garrón! Innocent people and world leaders are dead after simultaneous attacks on the U.S. and Krakoan governments, and that means one thing: it's time for a new squad of Avengers. False flag attacks meant to whip up anti-mutant hysteria are unfolding and hey, some of Steve Rogers' best friends are mutants. Marvel’s new unity squad will include Captain America, Rogue, Deadpool, Quicksilver, Psylocke, and Penance. This powerhouse new team must solve the mystery of who the new, murderous Captain Krakoa is -- and stop his team of killers from igniting the fires of a new world war.

    “Everything we’ve been working towards in our third act is coming to a head this summer,” Duggan told fans in a video message. “The Uncanny Avengers have existed to provide an example of unity between humanity and mutantdom, and they will need to work extra hard at that now as relationships and friendships have frayed in the events of FALL OF X.”

    Also revealed at Marvel Unlimited’s X-Men: 60 Uncanny Years Live Virtual Event, Marvel Comics is thrilled to announce that D23: The Official Disney Fan Club will be hosting the first ever REAL-LIFE Hellfire Gala during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in July!
