    Jen maybe a lawyer, but it was Slott's run were she actually tried to go back and be one, instead of just smashing badguys which is what she was just doing at the time. This sounds very similar. Jen is trying to be a lawyer again after just bashing brains.


    Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur again sounds like their last runs and stories where they did team up with a lot of Marvel characters. So yes, in my opinion they do sound a lot like previous runs.

    Water is wet. Unbelieavable.

    • She Hulk sounds a lot like Slott's She Hulk
    • Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur doesn't seem to be doing much different from the previous runs

    That's... quite the takeaway considering all that's been announced so far about She-Hulk is that Jennifer will be back to being a lawyer and about Moon Girl that it's going to star Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. The first one is the character's normal setting and the second one is literally just the protagonists. That's all the blurbs accompanying the announcements said.

    I feel like if you were to tell me an Iron Man run sounds an awful lot like a previous run because it stars Tony Stark being an inventor.

  3. I'm excited for Timeless because of MacKay, plus the art team is solid. I'll check out She-Hulk because of Rainbow Rowell, I have no attachment to She-Hulk but I loved Rowell's Runaways so I'm glad that wasn't her only Marvel gig. It's also neat to see Slott getting to do the Reckoning War after teasing it so long ago, plus it will give him something to focus on instead of unnecessary family drama.

    I'm cautiously optimistic for Avengers Forever because I like Exiles-type stories, plus it's spearheaded by an alternate Tony Stark. However, I don't trust Aaron with writing Tony. I guess it's a double edged sword. At least Aaron Kuder will make it look pretty.

    I've heard great things about Zdarsky's Daredevil, but I feel like it's a bit too late to jump in so I'll be skipping Devil's Reign. I'm not into the X-Men, so there goes Wolverine. And I'm also not interested for Moon Girl, though I guess it's neat that she's got a new book considering I've heard her previous ongoing did really well with middle-grade readers.

    Nah if they do Foom, he will come with sculpted shorts. I remember with the Hulk wave version came out and their was a whole uproar over him not having the purple shorts.

    I'm not joking he wouldn't come with pants, but with interchangeable sculpted parts to make him either pantful or pantless.

    Alternatively, I'm not a fan of soft goods, but imagine if he came with fabric pants that could be stretched a bit so he could hold them like this:

    Marvel (comics) has become such a predictable shadow of it's former self. Teasing the real Captain Marvel, the one everyone liked and wanted, just to try and get a sales boost. This gimmick will give the boost they want so they can claim the book is doing just fine, but Mar-Vell will go and the sales boost will depart with it. Marvel will never bring him back as the true Captain Marvel for fear of the mob loosing their isht, though it would ultimately be better for the company and the book.


  6. I'm a bit disappointed the Silver Surfer isn't using that new pinless standard male body that Hasbro teased a while back. It would have been fun for them to premiere the two standard pinless molds at the same time with these two figures from the same set.

    The Spider-Man wave looks pretty solid, but I find it annoying that Hasbro packed only one extra set of hands with those movie Spideys. Their boxes look so barred compared to the Gamerverse Miles. However, since I'm an Iron Man collector, the only figure I will be getting will be Jameson for a business casual Tony Stark. I'm happy he comes with two sets of hands, but I wish it included neutral hands. Maybe with some heat I can make those hands a bit less splayed.

    As for the Walmart exclusive, I feel like Hasbro could have done better. It's literally almost just original figure from the Hydro-Man wave, but with the Infinity War 2-pack Peter Parker head and the webline they've reused time and time again. I said "almost" because I noticed it seems to have a new lower torso and crotch, and slightly different paint apps to account for the tweaks they did to the costume for the new movie. So Hasbro gets some points there. However, since modern Hasbro face sculpts make the hair a separate piece, I think they could at least have given him a better hairstyle than the Infinity War Prince Charming. I also would have liked to see painted or blackwashed weblines. At least I hope they use a matte plastic instead of the shiny plastic from the original release.

  7. I saw the article in here, but not an accompanying thread for it. So I figured to bring up the new images for MAFEX's classic Iron Man here. The price point is pretty steep, but I have to admit this figure does everything I wish Hasbro had done. The visible eyes under the faceplate, the more Bronze Age-looking Tony headsculpt, the roller skates.

    On top of that, it comes with a Proton Cannon. Considering this weapon doesn't fit with classic Iron Man, it feels almot like it was done purposefully for Hasbro's modular Iron Man. My only complaint about this figure is the alternate faceplate. Just to play along with the ridiculousness of the roller skates, I wish it they had given him a proper nose instead of the Alex Ross-style nose indentations. Even though by no means Hasbro did a bad job with their classic Iron Man figures, I can't help but feel like this one is the definitive classic Iron Man.

    The price point does hurt, and on top of this MAFEX has other Iron Man-related figures in the pipeline, but I feel like I can't just not have it. At least the June 2022 release date means I can make a "MAFEX Iron Man fund" so it doesn't hurt as much when I pull the trigger.

    Interesting, but even if the figure is for real, there's no guarantee he'd actually be in the movie. Given the rumored "multiverse" subplot, Hasbro may just be shoving old stock in new packages to score some extra cash. Hasbro likes cash . . . don't they?

    Certainly wouldn't be the first time a movie-line worked in characters that weren't in the actual movie.

    While shoving old figures in new packages is something Hasbro does, the Titan Hero figures didn't exist back in 2007. There is no old 12" 5-POA figure of Raimi Spider-Man for them to re-release now.

    And if they were making figures for characters not in the movie, I think it would make more sense for them to re-release the Titan Hero figures of previous MCU Spider-Man movies, the same way they're re-releasing Mysterio, Vulture, Iron Man and Spider-Man's previous suits in the basic figure line. I think it's a stretch to think they would be making a figure of Raimi Spider-Man if he's not in the movie.

    Not that I'm not taking this leak with a grain of salt, but I think  there are better reasons to doubt its legitimacy.

    Too true, Avengers No Surrender and Avengers No Road Home were fantastic stories and it is shame we haven't gotten a third outing.

    I really wish they'd do the third "No" book to bridge the end of Aaron's run with whatever comes next, the same way they did the first one to bridge what came before Aaron with the beginning of Aaron's run. While I know No Surrender and No Road Home purposefully avoided using Iron Man, Cap and Thor to give the spotlight to smaller characters, I would like to see them tackle the Big Three.

    Mark Waid is currently at DC, but I don't think he's exclusive, so I think it's doable. And if they couldn't get him I wouldn't be too upset since Al Ewing and Jim Zub are my favorite writers of the trio.
