Fantastic Five: Worst Marvel Events
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics. Nobody’s perfect, and just because the House of Ideas has been responsible for some of the greatest spectacles in comic history doesn’t mean they haven’t had their fair share of awful moments as well. This week, we point our all seeing eye of judgment at five of the worst offenders.
The Best ‘Star Wars’ Heroes Fan Art Ever
For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. And for almost 40 years, Star Wars has captured the imaginations of men, women, and children from... well, not a thousand, but several generations! It’s hard to imagine a movie, or any other work outside of a religious text, that’s touched as many and had as powerful an impact on pop culture specifically --- and culture in general --- as Star Wars. To mark the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we've compiled some of the best fan art we could find celebrating the heroes of the original Star Wars trilogy. (And a few from the Prequels, because, why not?)
Fantastic Five: Best Marvel Supermen
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics. Superheroes are a dime a dozen in comics, but there’s only one Superman! Not only is Superman the first and greatest superhero, he also set the standard for what a superhero was and could be. So it's not really surprising that over the years Marvel has tried to come up with their own version of the Man of Steel. Obviously, some are a little more super than others. This week we'll look at the five best super-pretenders Marvel has to offer!
Comics, Everybody: The History of Daredevil Explained!
Daredevil is the latest Marvel hero to make a triumphant return to the screen in the recently released Netflix series that you've probably already watched all thirteen episodes of, so he's the perfect candidate to have his convoluted history explored in the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again is here to educate you about Daredevil's tragic love life, colorful villains, and unlikely origin story. Whether you're new to comics, new to Marvel's heroes, or a long-time fan looking to re-familiarize yourself with the eccentricities of superhero continuity (or maybe engage in some hardcore nitpicking), we hope you'll enjoy this tribute to the hornheaded hero of Hell's Kitchen.
