What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Brian Michael Bendis

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Many Masks of Moon Knight!

Moon Knight is a cool character who, sadly, has often suffered from strange decisions and some creators not knowing what to do with him. Throughout it all, he’s remained Marc Spector, a former mercenary who became a vigilante cloaked in silver because he absolutely wants the bad guys to see him coming. Recently, writer Warren Ellis and artists Declan Shelvey and Jordie Bellaire have reinvented the character for the new ongoing Moon Knight series. I highly recommend it for fans old and new.

But before we chat any further about the new series, let’s delve into the history of this lunar avenger of the night who had to die before he could live as a hero.

The comic follows the lives of detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, one an ex-superhero who lost his powers and the other a very tricky, faceted character indeed, and has been in various states of happening and not happening at Sony for around three years now.

Read What Marvel’s Film Consultant Has to Say About Those Iron Man 3/Guardians of the Galaxy Rumors

A few days back the Internet got all a’twitter over a quote from Robert Downey Jr. that possibly adds credence to an Iron Man 3 rumor that started floating (or, well, flying) around shortly before. Check out our original piece for a full run-down (yes, there are unmarked spoilers, so consider yourself warned) on the theory, which seems rather interesting if I do say so myself.

And apparently Brian Michael Bendis, a writer for the Guardians comics in addition to being a Marvel film consultant, thinks it’s interesting too, at least judging by his response to the rumors.

(I’m going to assume that everyone who clicks the jump already knows the potential spoilers, so nothing will be hidden. Makes sense, no?)

Good News? The Powers TV Show Is Starting Over

When last we heard about the FX television adaptation of Powers, the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming crime-drama/superhero comic, it was shutting down and retooling. Turns out, most of the talent may not be going along for the ride. They’re starting completely from scratch. Is this good news or bad news?

FX’s Powers Pilot Is Reshooting, Rebooting Itself

We haven’t heard anything from FX‘s Powers series in a while, and maybe that’s a sign of how well shooting has been going. While FX hasn’t completely ruled out picking it up for series, it is making the comic-based show undergo some major surgery before giving it another chance. However, according to Powers co-creator Brian Michael Bendis, this is not bad news at all. In fact, it shows signs that the network is actually interested in giving the show a chance.

Good News Everyone!

AKA Jessica Jones TV Show Will Be Set In The Overall Marvel Universe

With Marvel lacking a bit when it comes to their female characters lately (they’ve just cancelled their last two female solo titles), it’s nice to see that not only are one of their heroines getting her own TV show but it won’t ignore the rest of the Marvel Universe and pretend to be about something else. AKA Jessica Jones is the show and writer Melissa Rosenberg (the Twilight films) spoke recently about which Marvel characters she hopes to utilize in the series.
