Agent Carter's got powers, y'all.
You can't keep a good agent down. Peggy Carter returns to comics in the upcoming issue of Exiles #3 with a whole new look and a dose of super-soldier serum, taking on the mantle of Captain America herself. This is another exciting incarnation of the beloved heroine who first had us fangirling in in Captain America: The First Avenger.Read More
As the potential death of Loki in Avengers: Infinity War approaches, let's look at all the amazingly over-the-top outfits the MCU could have pulled from the comics.Read More
Three of the Dora Milaje — Okoye, Ayo and Aneka — will be heading up their own Marvel Comics miniseries from sci-fi superstar Nnedi Okorafor.Read More
Yesterday, we brought you to the reaches of the Marvel fan theories for some Infinity Stone speculation that was ... well, kind of a reach. But what if something both more obvious and incredibly meaningful and perception-altering is afoot? It may be that we've already seen the final piece of Thanos' infinity gauntlet puzzle in a way that has more impact than seeing the glowing Soul Stone itself.Read More
Ta-Nehisi Coates announced today that he will soon be taking over the Captain America comic book series. While Coates began writing comics only recently, he's an incredibly exciting choice. For starters, his run of Black Panther, which laid the groundwork for the perfect piece of art that is the movie, was beyond brilliant. But his work in journalism also gives him a unique and exciting perspective on this character and comics in general.Read More

Peggy Carter as Captain America, whom you may recognize from Marvel's Puzzle Quest game, will appear in Exiles #3, and I can't wait.Read More
Black Panther first appeared in Marvel's Fantastic Four #52 in July 1966, which means it predates the Black Panther Party, which started in October 1966. Despite that, the connection has always been made, and it has generally been assumed that the character was inspired by the party, not the other way around. This assumption made Marvel kinda skittish back in the day.Read More
Marvel Comics just announced that it's a brand new day for their comics properties. With the departure of former Marvel architect Brian Michael Bendis (creator of Jessica Jones and Miles Morales) to DC Comics, it seems that they're taking the opportunity to make some big changes. Don't worry, those characters aren't going anywhere. In fact, it seems like there are positive changes in the works, in large part inspired by the MCU. Check out the announcement video after the jump!Read More

Exclusive: Black Panther: Long Live the King #5 Preview Showcases a Female Chief as Written by a Black Woman
Long Live the Chief.
One of the best things about Black Panther fever lately is that it's, in large part, powered by women of color. T'Challa is great as he comes into his own as a leader after the death of his father, but he'd be nothing without Ramonda, or Shuri, or the Dora Milaje. In this exclusive preview of Black Panther: Long Live the King #5, we get to spend time with a female chief named Ikoko, who does not have time for T'Challa's judgmental attitude.Read More

The comics are pretty clear on the ground rules: "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he [OR SHE] be worthy, shall possess the power of THOR." But how does this work?Read More
Black Panther week is finally upon us!Read More
We were all excited about the Black Panther premiere (I mean, those purple-carpet photos, tho!), and are even more excited for this movie to finally come out! However, as we were looking through the premiere photos, which seemed to include every single black person from all walks of entertainment, including Black Panther comic writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates, there were two faces that were notably absent.Read More
"A tankard-draining, maiden-wooing, giant-slaying thunderbolt of a woman"
The upcoming Marvel comics series Exiles will feature an alternate-universe version of Valkyrie/Brunnhilde—and she'll look a whole lot like Tessa Thompson's character from Thor: Ragnarok.Read More
