Anticlimactic Superhero Identity Reveals
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 10:01 AM GMT
In <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/drawing-crazy-patterns/" target="_blank">Drawing Crazy Patterns</a>, I spotlight at least five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Note that these lists are inherently not exhaustive. They are a list of five examples (occasionally I'll be nice and toss in a sixth). So no instance is "missing" if it is not listed. It's just not one of the five examples that I chose.

Adventure Comics' Publishing History Is An Adventure Of Its Own!
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 10:01 AM GMT
This is a "Gonna Make a Change," which takes a look at the odd evolution that comic book series used to make. You see, nowadays, when a comic book series wants to re-tool, comic book companies simply cancel the book and start a brand-new series (heck, change a creative team and books will often reboot). In the old days, however, comic book companies felt that they had too much capital invested in the higher numbers and wanted to avoid starting over with a new #1. So we got to see some weird changes over the years.

A Dreamer's Guide to The CW's Roswell, New Mexico
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 4:01 AM GMT
With the premiere tonight of The CW’s reboot <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/roswell/"><em>Roswell, New Mexico</em></a><em>,</em> fans of the original sci-fi drama, which aired from 1999 to 2002, should prepare to find the familiar and the new in the reimagining by Carinia Adly Mackenzie’s (<em>The Originals</em>). The characters have been aged up from high schoolers to adults in their late 20s, and the series has taken on a much more political tone. Issues of immigration (terrestrial and otherwise) permeate the narrative, as do grittier topics like mental illness, addiction and sexual identity.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Gives Us the Classic Mysterio - With Fishbowl!
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 3:01 AM GMT
The first reports surfaced last spring about <a href="https://www.cbr.com/jake-gyllenhaal-mysterio-spider-man-homecoming-2/">Jake Gyllenhaal's role as Mysterio</a> in <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/spider-man-far-from-home/">Spider-Man: Far From Home</a>, but we knew little about the Marvel Cinematic Universe's take on the villain, <a href="https://www.cbr.com/spider-man-far-from-home-set-photos-videos-show-off-jake-gyllenhaals-mysterio/">beyond leaked set photos</a> and claims that <a href="https://www.cbr.com/spider-man-far-from-home-heroic-mysterio/">he's actually the sequel's "co-protagonist."</a> But with the debut of the first trailer, fans were undoubtedly pleased to discover that the live-action version of the wall-crawler's foe will sport a signature, and beloved, element from the comics.

How Was Jubilee Cured Of Being a Vampire?
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 3:01 AM GMT
This is <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/never-gonna-be-the-same-again/">"Never Gonna Be the Same Again,"</a> a feature where I look at how bold, seemingly "permanent" changes were ultimately reversed. This is not a criticism, mind you, as obviously things are always going to eventually return to "normal." That's just how superhero comic books work. It's just fun to see how some of these rather major changes are reversed. This is differentiated from <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/abandoned-love/" target="_blank">"Abandoned Love,"</a> which is when a new writer comes in and drops the plot of the previous writer. Here, we're talking about the writer who came up with the idea being the same one who resolved the change. This is also differentiated from <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/death-is-not-the-end/" target="_blank">"Death is Not the End,"</a> which is about how "dead" characters came back to life, since this is about stuff other than death.

20 Wacky, Long-Lost Villains Due For A Comeback
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 3:01 AM GMT
Whether you're forging dank memes, narrowly avoiding plagiarism or remixing Sir Mix-a-Lot, there's always something to be gained in using one's creativity to reimagine a pre-existing intellectual property. One of our favorite things about comics for instance is seeing how modern writers manage to transform formerly lame super-villains into modern day menaces. Take Mime for instance, a former Z-List Batman villain who was remade into the mute assassin wielding invisible weapons and the breakout star of 2018's <em>Doomsday Clock </em>by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

Zack Snyder's Justice League T-Shirt Design May Be a Map to His DCEU Plans
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 2:01 AM GMT
Zack Snyder <a href="https://www.cbr.com/zack-snyder-the-stone-quarry/">may not be a part of Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe anymore</a>, but it's hard to dispute he had a big vision for it. Things got off to a wobbly start with <em>Man of Steel</em>, with Snyder quickly throwing the Dark Knight and Diana of Themyscira into the mix in <em>Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice</em>. This, of course, was designed as a prelude to <em>Justice League</em>, which was originally envisioned as a two-part story rather than a single film.

The Disappointing Way That Black Manta's Autism Was Handled
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 2:01 AM GMT
In this feature, "Things That Turned Out Bad," I will spotlight plotlines by writers that probably weren't a good idea at the time and have only become more problematic in retrospect. I'll try to stick with stuff that's more ill-conceived than flat-out offensive (like racist stereotypes of characters during the 1940s).

Game of Thrones Bosses Tease the Season 8 Trailer's Arrival

Powered Up: The 20 Most Powerful Nintendo Weapons, Ranked
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 2:01 AM GMT
Nintendo has long prided itself on being a family-friendly gaming haven. And they absolutely are, bringing joy and positivity to generations with characters that have grown into icons. The likes of Mario, Link, Zelda, Donkey Kong and Pikachu are now cultural touchstones, all being held together by the magic and power of Nintendo and its creatives. But just because most of its intellectual property is family-friendly doesn't mean its nonviolent, nope. In reality, there are quite a few weapons in the worlds of Nintendo games and plenty of cartoon violence, from the obvious <em>Super Smash Bros.</em> and <em>The Legend of Zelda </em>and even <em>Mario Kart,</em><em> </em>to the less up-front <em>Pikmin, Donkey Kong </em>and <em>Animal Crossing.</em>

REVIEW: Syfy’s Deadly Class Adaptation Coasts on Empty Nihilism
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 1:01 AM GMT
The setting of <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/deadly-class/">Deadly Class</a> (premiering January 16 on Syfy), a high school for assassins, is inherently nonsensical and ridiculous, although not necessarily any more so than Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry or Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. What makes <em>Deadly Class</em> (at least in its TV series incarnation) less convincing than <em>Harry Potter</em> or <em>X-Men</em> is that it keeps playing down the craziness, making it into something commonplace and boring. With its drab, dim visual style, glum performances and self-serious narration, <em>Deadly Class</em> seems determined to drain any fun from its goofy premise.

What Spider-Man: Far From Home's Trailer Tells Us About Avengers: Endgame
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 1:01 AM GMT
The eagerly awaited <a href="https://www.cbr.com/spider-man-far-from-home-trailer-1/">first trailer</a> for <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/spider-man-far-from-home/">Spider-Man: Far From Home</a> not only marks the live-action debut of classic Marvel Comics villain Mysterio, it (sort of) resolves the cliffhanger of <em>Homecoming</em>, in which Peter Parker's secret identity was discovered by Aunt May. However, if you look just beneath the surface, past the school trip to Europe, Peter's recruitment by Nick Fury and the threat of the elemental foes, you begin to discern clues about the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, after <em>Avengers: Endgame</em>.

Why Did Jack Kirby Have Scarlet Witch Wear a Wimple?
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 12:01 PM GMT
This is <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/foggy-ruins-of-time/" target="_blank">Foggy Ruins of Time</a>, a feature that provides the cultural context behind certain comic book characters/behaviors. You know, the sort of then-topical references that have faded into the “foggy ruins of time.” To wit, twenty years from now, a college senior watching episodes of "Seinfeld" will likely miss a lot of the then-topical pop culture humor (like the very specific references in “The Understudy” to the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding scandal).

20 Cult Villains Who Became Heroes We Love
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 12:01 PM GMT
Arguably many a viewer's favorite part of a piece of fiction, whether book, comic, film, or video game, the villain is a feature in storytelling that has been explored and studied since the days of David and Goliath. Nowadays, villains are a trifle more complex than the standard evil-doer with a long black cape. They have more complex motives, relatable emotions, and some villains even have a great deal of heart beneath their hatred. But one of the most interesting things a villain of this caliber can do is switch sides and recant his wicked ways. Whether through redemption, an emotional story arc, or simply for means of personal gain, some villains have been known to shed their scales and turn a new leaf, as strange as that may sound.

Spider-Man's Passport in Far From Home Hides a Marvel Comics Easter Egg
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 11:01 AM GMT
Although the long-awaited first trailer for <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/spider-man-far-from-home/">Spider-Man: Far From Home</a> doesn't address how Tom Holland's Peter Parker is resurrected in Marvel's <em>Avengers: Endgame</em>, it does show he's alive and well, and headed to Europe for a school trip. The footage is jam-packed with returning characters, such as Aunt May, Happy Hogan, Ned Leeds and MJ, and new additions like Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio and Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury. While the biggest takeaway is the live-action debut of classic comic book villain Mysterio, complete with classic fishbowl helmet, there's a clever Easter egg that diehard Spider-Man will likely recognize.

God Vs Monster: 10 Reasons Thor Is The Strongest Avenger (And 10 Why It’s Actually The Hulk)
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 11:01 AM GMT
Since Thor and Hulk first fought in issue #3 of 1963’s <i>The Avengers</i>, the question “who is the strongest Avenger?” has been running through fans’ minds. The two heroes have fought many times since that issue; each recording their fair share of victories. However, writers often bring different takes on the characters to each story they pen, which can make it difficult to determine the answer to that burning question. Even the MCU films have tapped into this competitive rivalry and take every opportunity available to pit the two fan-favorite characters against each other. These moments are often a source of humor in the MCU films, which creates an interesting tone as the two heavy hitters slug it out.

Glass Director M. Night Shyamalan on Why He Turned Down Marvel & DC
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 11:01 AM GMT
Way before Marvel and DC films were a popular feature in modern day movie theaters, comic book movies were few and far between. The early 2000s is considered the dawn of superhero comic book movies, and M. Night Shyamalan's <em>Unbreakable</em> was one of the earliest, both in the genre and in the writer/director’s career. With his new film <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/glass/"><em>Glass</em> </a>premiering this Friday, completing the <em>Unbreakable </em>trilogy he continued with 2016’s <em>Split</em>, Shyamalan revealed he previously turned down offers from both Marvel and DC to direct comic book films because he didn’t want to water down his film making style with company expectations.

20 Winter 2019 Anime, Ranked
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 10:01 AM GMT
Let's be honest: on first impressions, Winter 2019 is not going to be the most exciting season for anime. Winters usually aren't the strongest anime seasons, but fans were kind of spoiled by 2018's crop. Half of the Crunchyroll Anime Award nominees for Best Anime of 2018 (<em>Devilman Crybaby, A Place Further than the Universe</em> and <em>Violet Evergarden</em>) premiered in Winter, while other shows like <em>Laid Back Camp</em>, <em>After the Rain</em>, <em>Pop Team Epic</em> and <em>Darling in the FranXX</em>, while not all universally loved, at least roused passions. Winter 2019, in contrast, feels rather quiet on the new anime front.

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 9:01 AM GMT
When rumors initially dropped about <em>Legion</em> and <em>Fargo </em>showrunner Noah Hawley's plans to develop a solo live-action movie based on Marvel character Doctor Doom, fans were excited by the prospect. <em>Legion</em> showcased a new way of looking at superhero adaptations, and following the release of <em>Suicide Squad</em>, which put the villains of the DC universe front and center, the time seemed right for Hawley's take on Doctor Doom. Unfortunately, new rumors state that plans for Fox's <a href="https://www.cbr.com/x-force-gambit-doctor-doom-films-dead/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><em>Doctor Doom</em> film, along with other upcoming projects like <em>Gambit</em> and <em>X-Force</em></a>, may have been scrapped.

Popped Culture: 10 Of The Most Valuable Marvel Funko Pops (And 10 That Make No Sense)
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 9:01 AM GMT
Each generation has its own collection craze that leads to battles for the top items and an entire subculture of valuing and reselling. For some of us, it was stamps. For others, the TY Beanie Baby, but this generation’s craze is no doubt the Funko Pop. Not the only vinyl toy collector’s item, the Funko Pop stands out for having a Pop for everything. Every season of every show, every character’s outfit, and variants from metallic to color swapped. With the massive character adaptations and the myriad of variants, Funko Pops have taken on the same culture as collector’s items before them, they have attached different statuses to each Pop!. But also with so many variations of each and every character comes some nonsense. There are so many Funko Pops that there are plenty that are baffling.

VIDEO: Small MCU Hints That Led to Avengers: Endgame (But We Never Noticed)
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 8:01 AM GMT
In the lead-up to the reveal of <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/avengers-4/">Avengers: Endgame</a>'s first trailer and title, fans spent an inordinate number of hours combing the Marvel Cinematic Universe's films for clues as to what the title would be.

10 Heroes the Guardians Of The Galaxy Get Along With (And 10 They Can't Stand)
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 7:01 AM GMT
The Guardians of the Galaxy have been defending the cosmos for quite some time now. Whether is is the more familiar roster of recent years, headed up by Star Lord or even the classic Guardians, led by Vance Astro, there are always Guardians. Standing against some of the most powerful threats in the Marvel Universe, they are notorious. They don't suffer the vast loneliness of space, however, as they work alongside all kinds of cosmic heroes and planets. The Guardians of the Galaxy have made strong bonds and lasting friendships in their historic battles.

Even Earth's premiere super teams have enjoyed their company and friendship, most notably the time-displaced All-New X-Men.

Animation Domination: 10 Animated Superheroes Weaker Than The Original (10 Who Are Stronger)
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 6:01 AM GMT
If there's anything fans love to debate, it's how strong their favorite superheroes are.  It's almost a given if someone gathers too many comic fans together in a single place they'll start discussing who's the strongest, who's the fastest, or who's the smartest hero. It can start out with pretty basic reasoning but grow pretty complex, as the answer's never cut and dry. Our heroes often experience vast changes in what they can do based on different writers. And even if that's fairly consistent, nearly every superhero has had their powers altered or improved once they make the change from the comics into the world of films or cartoons.

The Oddly Short Avengers Tenure of Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman
Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, 4:01 AM GMT
This is a feature called <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/beg-steal-or-borrow/">"Beg Steal or Borrow,"</a> which is about when comic book characters are abruptly pulled from one book to another. I'm not talking about when comic book characters simply migrate from one title to another (I spotlight examples of <em>that</em> in my feature, <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/looks-like-im-moving/">"Looks Like I'm Moving"</a>). I mean examples where a writer has a character taken out of the book against their wishes. It almost always happens in team books, but sometimes it occurs in solo titles, as well.

Monday, January 14th, 2019, 5:01 AM GMT
Much to no one’s surprise, Marvel Comics has launched a new <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/captain-marvel/">Captain Marvel </a>title.

Disney's Pinocchio Reboot Director Departs Film
Monday, January 14th, 2019, 5:01 AM GMT
Fans of Disney had the opportunity to see the classic movie <em>Beauty and the Beast</em> adapted as a live-action film in 2017, with Emma Watson starring as Belle. And the studio’s remakes of <em>Cinderella </em>(2015) and<em> The Jungle Book</em> (2016) saw similar success. Live-action adaptations of <em>Aladdin, The Lion King </em>and <em>Dumbo</em> are set to hit theaters this year, as well.

WATCH: Like All of Us, The Simpsons Uses That Disappearing Homer GIF Too

There is likely no show or pop-culture stalwart more meme-worthy and meme-generating than <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/the-simpsons/"><em>The Simpsons</em></a>. The long-running animated Fox sitcom transcends generations and for that reason has always tried to stay modern -- and even postmodern. It doesn't get any more meta than the show referencing itself with one of its most famous GIFs.

REVIEW: The Passage Takes the Excitement Out of a Sci-Fi Epic
Monday, January 14th, 2019, 3:01 AM GMT
Justin Cronin’s <em>The Passage</em> novel trilogy spans hundreds of years both pre- and post-apocalypse, but the Fox TV-series adaptation (premiering today, January 14) has scaled the story down to a single generic compound, where secret agents and scientists yell at each other about an impending disaster unfolding entirely offscreen. It’s possible that the first three episodes are merely setting up an epic to come, but there’s very little to indicate that it will be worth sticking around to see what develops.

If It Is An X-Men Event, Cable Will Traditionally Die In It!
Monday, January 14th, 2019, 3:01 AM GMT
In <a href="https://www.cbr.com/tag/drawing-crazy-patterns/" target="_blank">Drawing Crazy Patterns</a>, I spotlight at least five scenes/moments from within comic book stories that fit under a specific theme (basically, stuff that happens frequently in comics). Note that these lists are inherently not exhaustive. They are a list of five examples (occasionally I'll be nice and toss in a sixth). So no instance is "missing" if it is not listed. It's just not one of the five examples that I chose.

Russell and Neil Burger all tapped out after being reportedly attached.

Super, Human: 20 Most Powerful DC Superheroes (Who Have No Powers), Ranked
Monday, January 14th, 2019, 3:01 AM GMT
Just because you don't have powers doesn't mean you can't be a superhero. In fact, some of DC's greatest, most iconic superheroes are mere humans. Sure, they generally have some super advantages, like an inexhaustible fortune, a convenient cave hidden beneath their house or a hi-tech arsenal. But underneath it all, they're just as squishy and mortal as the rest of us, if in better shape. And yet they still managed to make a name for themselves as superheroes, even as they worked alongside beings who could benchpress a tank. That takes a lot of guts, and we're going to honor them by giving them a list all to themselves. No superpowers allowed here! Just a celebration of the non-powered heroes who have thrown logic to the wind and decided that they, too, could be super.
