Jason Aaron / Esad Ribic - Marvel
Marvel continues to trudge ahead in revamping their comic line-up, the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC...stars of the Marvel One Shot, Legacy...are bound to play a monumental role in the shaping of an almost re-newed Marvel universe. These cosmic and mystical forces are represented in full force, and by full force...I do mean POWER. Shown above we have (L to R) Starbrand, Iron Fist, Phoenix, Odin, Black Panther, Ghost Rider and Agamotto.
This team is chock-full-o-history. These historic forces have all impacted the proceeding generations of Marvel heroes and villains alike. How will introducing this never before seen team of Avengers impact the legacy of the heroes of today? Legacy drops September 27th, 2017, however...
Comic of the Week
Marvel Generations is a 10 part series chronicling the "current" iterations of characters meeting up with their predecessors so to speak. The first release just dropped and is my Marvel Comic of the Week...Generations: The Strongest.
The story dives right in with Amadeus Cho's Totally Awesome Hulk meeting up with Bruce Banner's Hulk in the relative past. Not a whole lot of backstory as far as how this occurred, but General Thunderbolt Ross has his droids attacking the Hulks before a sea creature of some sort joins the battle. While the book keeps the explosive action rolling, the dialogue between Amadeus and Bruce stirs something up in Amadeus. It's this revelation that will propel Amadeus's Hulk character and will be a welcome change to long time Incredible Hulk fans.
Generations is surely to cause a large imprint in the Legacy of Marvel moving forward.
Zazie Beetz as Domino
While certainly not the traditional comic look that some may have been hoping for, I'm a fan of the Zazie Beetz look as Domino from the upcoming Deadpool 2 flick. The black around the eye may be gone, but I'm certain that the luck Domino creates is still there. Created by Rob Liefield, Domino debuted in the pages of X-Force #8 (1992). What do you think of the new look?
Your Hair Moves Me
It's the moment I've been waiting for since Marvel first started dropping Inhumans trailers for the highly anticipated TV series...Medusa's hair in action! The CGI assisted hair movement looks to flow rather seamlessly, especially when Medusa commands her hair to wrap around the maniacal Mad Max's throat. It's almost as if Iwan Rheon (Maximus the Mad) has a natural niche for playing a tormentor to red heads.
Inhumans debuts in IMAX September 1st with the first 2 episodes before debuting on ABC on September 29th running the full 8 episode series.
Song of the Week
I feel like this is just too on point looking back on Medusa. She certainly is more than just her hair as India.Arie proudly sings on "I Am Not My Hair".
