Within the past few years, Marvel has truly excelled at consciously choosing to diversify and modernize its heroes to reflect the country and world in which we live. From Miles Morales and Kamala Khan to Viv Vision and Amadeus Cho, Marvel Comics reflects that young people of all backgrounds want to not only save the world, but change it. Get ready for Champions, Marvel's newest super team!Read More
The various powers of the X-Men would be pretty terrifying in real life. In spite of that, Youtuber Sufficiently Advanced has decided to recreate all the most dangerous powers from the Marvel universe.Read More

Telekinesis is coming.Read More
'80s Sansa is coming.
We see what you're doing, X-Men: Apocalypse. Announcing that you're an '80s period piece and then teasing us with the possibility of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey? You might know how to get The Mary Sue editors reinvested in a franchise, but don't think we won't notice if you eventually punk out.Read More
Cats are pretty great. So are the X-Men. But put them together and you'll see that maybe we're all lucky cats don't have mutant powers. Here, enjoy both Wolverine Cat and Cyclops Cat (he's after the jump!) as created by Kaipo Jones. I'll be over here putting gloves on one of my cats and glowing playing cards by my other cat.Read More

Does it matter that he's the leader of the X-Men? Nope! Why? Because he uncontrollably shoots laser beams from his eyes. The firing really makes sense, when you think about it.Read More
It's pretty much become a tradition for Marvel and DC Comics to kill off a major character every few years when they've decided they would like some publicity. Sometimes, they even kill off characters that died previously for similar reasons.
