Let the rampant speculation begin!
If the rumor mill were an arcade machine, today somebody just straight up ninja kicked it until it broke open and started spewing tokens everywhere. And among the payout are rumors involving the Avengers getting less Avengers but maybe some additional Spider-Man and making everyone's dreams come true.Read More
The Directors of Captain America 3 Are Making It Sound Really Cool Almost 2 Years Before We’ll Get To See It
Last we heard from Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo they were winning our hearts by talking about how they like to take a little thing called logic into account when writing their screenplays. Well, with the Winter Soldier DVD/Blu-ray just having come out, they're still doing press junkets, and that's yielded some quotes about how fans are going to "freak out" about Cap 3. Guys. Quit playin' games with my heart.Read More

"Get in, losers. We're going to do science."
Stanford biologist Sebastian Alvarado is here to take the wind out of your sails, pedants. Superheroes will probably never be 100% scientifically accurate, but Alvarado's rationalizations for the real science that could be at work behind the Hulk and Captain America would make the Science Bros. proud.

All those who chose to oppose his shield must bend over laughing.
Remember that time Steve Rogers went undercover as somebody's grandma to infiltrate Hydra Headquarters, with tiny frilly-suited Bucky Barnes in tow? Dorkly does, as well as a lot of embarrassing stuff that's happened to Cap and his team over the years—though not, ironically, that time he asked if the A on his head stands for France. It's probably better that we all forget that.Read More

We Need All Voices in Comics (Or I Started the #FireRickRemender Hashtag and I’m Only Kind of Sorry About It)
Republished with permission.
Wednesday evening, following my first read of Rick Remender’s Captain America #22, I posted a series of entries to my blog reiterating my distaste for his work, and my renewed (and long-held) belief that he should no longer be writing it. I am genuinely sorry for any personal affront my actions may have caused. What I am not sorry for is everything that came afterward.Read More
Let's take a look, shall we?
Captain America #22, by writer Rick Remender and artist Carlos Pacheco, caused an uproar last week. Why? Many were under the assumption a sex scene between Sam Wilson (aka The Falcon) and Jet Zola was actually a statutory rape scene. Soon, the hashtag #FireRickRemender surfaced on Twitter and many angry posts were written. There's just one thing to clear up - in the comics, Jet is at least 23 years old.
