Long before the Sacred Timeline, the Spider-Verse, or even The Multiverse of Madness, Marvel’s Avengers have been touted as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and they’ve faced off against a variety of interplanetary and interdimensional threats since the day their ink first hit comic book paper. Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Incredible Hulk have been astonishing and delighting readers for decades, and their popularity only skyrocketed with the invention of the MCU.

With their films as a hit franchise, many fans want to delve into their comic book origins. Luckily, Marvel has more than a few starting points for fans who are content to dip their toes into the medium.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

ten Hawkeye by Matt Fraction and David Aja


Hawkeye Vol 4 2 Cover Matt Fraction

With the impressive Hawk Eye streaming series on Disney+, fans will definitely want to check out Matt Fraction and David Aja’s take on the character. From the design and art direction, it’s easy to see where Disney drew its influence. Hawkeye’s adventures with Kate Bishop will undoubtedly be eerily familiar.

What Happens is a single-player Avenger story that takes Clint and Kate from crime-fighting the streets of New York City to a globe-trotting thriller involving SHIELD and stolen incriminating evidence. The self-contained story is what makes it so easy to understand, read, and delve deeper into the comic world of the Avengers.


9 Captain America by Mark Waid


Mark Waid's Captain America deflects bullets.

When fans think of Captain America, they more than likely imagine the star-studded man with the brightly colored suit and mighty shield battling the forces of HYDRA and blasting his way through bad guys like a real super -hero. In Mark Waid’s series featuring the first Avenger, that’s exactly what readers get.

It’s the mix of classic and modern that gives the series such appeal. After his infamous “Hail Hydra” storyline, Cap is back in action and looking to restore his glory as he embarks on a cross-country journey across America. It’s a traditional, lighthearted comic book affair that puts the character back in the spotlight and reminds fans why they love him in the first place.


8 Hulk: Gray By Loeb And Dirty


Close up of the Hulk's face in grey.

If the names Loeb and Sale sound familiar to you, it’s the dynamic duo that brought Batman: The Long Halloween live. While their contributions to the DC Universe are always lauded, their work with Marvel is equally impressive. Hulk: Gray is a highly artistic reimagining of the character’s origin, and fans looking for a classic storyline featuring Dr. Banner’s alter ego won’t be disappointed.

Fans familiar with the late ’70s TV series will certainly notice some similarities, but it’s told in a unique, almost crime-noir style. The early days of the Hulk are getting a different coat of paint as a kind of classic-era callback to one of Marvel’s mightiest heroes.


seven Thor: God of Thunder by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic


with the next love and thunder on the horizon, there’s no better time to pick up Thor: God of thunder. A story set in both the present and the past sends Thor on the trail of the infamous Gorr the Butcher God, and a mythical saga ensues.

Thor has always presented the Avengers series with a much-needed fantasy element, but Aaron and Ribic’s contributions to the character further sell that concept. Also, with Gorr presenting such a threat in the upcoming movie, fans might want to take a look at just how much damage the villain can do.


6 The Invincible Iron Man: Extremis by Warren Ellis


Iron Man Extremis

Warren Ellis’ adaptation of Iron Man is what Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal would look like in comic book form. Essentially laying the groundwork for iron man 3, this take on the character is cinematic in every sense of the word. If fans have very little experience with the character, this run is an ideal springboard to jump headfirst into comic interpretation of the Avengers.

RELATED: 10 Avengers As Pokemon Masters

In the most blunt terms, a large percentage of Tony Stark’s MCU adaptation comes from Ellis’ series and it’s so easy to see various bits and bobs that made their way into the movie version. In a story that’s as much a tech thriller as it is a superhero saga, the race delivers some of the character’s best.


5 The New Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis


Spider-Woman, Vision, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man and Wolverine standing in the dark with lightning bolts behind them.

The New Avengers is one of the best places readers can get into a more current iteration of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, especially if they’re a fan of Joss Wheadon’s MCU adaptation. From Captain America to Iron Man, all the classic characters are featured, along with other favorites including Spider-Woman and Luke Cage.

Brian Michael Bendis kicks off the dawn of a new chapter for the Avengers, breathing new life with classic characters and familiar formulas. With Electro unleashing some of the most dangerous villains in town, it will take more than the standard team to knock out characters like Shockwave, Purple Man, and a whole host of other enemies released from the Raft.


4 Ultimates by Al Ewing


The Ultimates as they appeared in the comics

The Ultimate Universe can best be described as Marvel Comics/The Avengers at its best. Pure comic book greatness, action-packed, colorful, and worthy of the MCU itself. It certainly has more than a few similarities to the movies in terms of design. Exaggerating a bit, The Ultimates should be what almost every comic book fan imagines when they think of the Avengers.

Comprised of Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ms. America, Blue Marvel, and Spectrum, the Ultimates swing out of their early chapters swinging together to take on the planet-eating Galactus. What happens in Ewing’s magnificent run is everything fans would expect from a Marvel superhero team and all the bells and whistles that come with it.




3 Civil War by Mark Millar


Captain America Civil War Comic

Of course, no discussion of the Avengers could be complete without touching on Marvel. Civil war. The conflict that defined and divided virtually an entire universe, Mark Millar’s groundbreaking saga is one of Marvel’s most significant events, and no fan should miss the drama.

RELATED: 10 Avengers Villains Who Should Join The MCU

When the government passes the Superhero Registration Act, placing all superheroes and metahumans under regulated enforcement. With half Captain America’s side, half Iron-Man’s side, and characters like Spider-Man and Doctor Strange caught in the crossfire, it’s a wonderful blend of political allegory and superhero saga. – action-packed hero.


2 The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin


Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet with all six gems

The Infinity Gauntlet is probably the most ambitious and expansive storyline in all of Marvel’s classic comics, and nearly every Avengers is involved. Those who only know Infinity War and End of Game only receive a fraction of what their inspiration has to offer. As Thanos attempts to seduce Lady Death’s heart, the entire Marvel Universe hangs in the balance.

While the movies involved all of the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and more, the comics took the conflict and spread it across the galaxy and brought in the forces of the Nova Corps, the Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock to defeat the Mad Titan. . To say it’s an epic adventure would be a gross understatement.


1 Wonders by Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek


The vertical of wonders

wonders by Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek is a very complete way to discover the Marvel universe. Not only does it feature the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men and Spider-Man doing their decades-long superhero homework, but they’re all seen through the eyes of a photojournalist whose devotion and fixation about superheroes, metahumans, and mutants gives a very human and more realistic perspective on superheroes in New York City.

Characters like Spider-Man, Tony Stark, and even Galactus are all seen alongside famous historical events like World War II, the hippie counterculture, and the civil rights movement. It’s a standalone storyline in which just about every Avengers and other Marvel mainstay plays a part in the course of American history.

The Billy Ireland Comic Book Library and Museum, located on the Ohio State Campus, houses the largest collection of comic book artwork in the world.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Acceptance. It’s what we always want others to give us, but we often fail to give ourselves.

His story begins at 10 years old. That’s when Maggie Dahlstrom knew.

“At the time, everything I read, being trans meant losing your whole family,” she said.

Acceptance, for her, didn’t come until years later. Even then, she says, to hold on to what was important, she had to let go.

“With the time I spent in the closet, I had a pretty good idea of ​​how things would go and people who would stop talking to me, I expected them to stop talking to me. , and they did,” she said. “And the people who haven’t, I have a better relationship with them than ever.”

The reality of being trans, she says, and for many LGBTQ people, is being afraid of being alone. But, she was never alone.

She has always loved to read. The comics, she says, spoke to her through words and pictures.

“Comics have always been a very important part of my life,” she said. “I had no idea queer comics had been around for very long.”

Each thin page brought a new depth of meaning.

A new meaning to acceptance.

“Finding out that there were people like me talking about things that I had experienced in this medium that had been so important to me for so long was eye-opening,” Dahlstrom said.

A revelation found within herself that she now gives to others.

At the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum, the world’s largest collection of comics and comic book art, Dahlstrom, on a 10-week research fellowship from the Ohio State Undergraduate Research Library, is currently researching on hundreds of queer comics and will create a web resource of queer literacy in history.

“If you don’t know what’s going on, having comics can be extremely helpful in organizing your thoughts and putting them on paper and finding other people,” she said.

Help dispel ignorance and misconceptions while bringing positivity to the online conversation.

“Gay people deserve basic rights,” she said. “Queer people deserve to see themselves in the media and not have to wonder what’s wrong with me, why am I like this, what’s going on that I’m not like everyone else. world because being queer is okay. Being queer is good.

Amazon has dipped into almost every digital niche with different services aimed at different markets. Although the company acquired a digital comics service called Comixology, there have always been issues with the service, and the retail giant has announced that it will fix it.

Amazon will solve various problems with Comixology

About four months after the company initially integrated Comixology into its other services, Amazon itself publicly acknowledged that the platform had encountered numerous issues. As spotted by Gizmodo, a thread posted by Amazon told the public that they understood the improvements needed saying they were already working to improve it as soon as possible.

According to Twitter feed, Comixology reported that they have combed through user feedback and are grateful for the strong comic book fan base. They noted that they understood the changes needed and were working on them as quickly as possible.

The company is already focused on fixing ‘some of the most important issues’

Amazon has promised to tackle “some of the biggest issues” users have had since integrating the digital comics service with the Kindle app.

An example of this is that the beta version of the Comixology web reading client will bring back support for double page spreads. The company also noted that it will address the issue with its store algorithm that pops up the software for novels and non-fiction books when users search for graphic novels, manga, and comics.

Amazon noted that it will release an official update later.

The company said that it will not only fix the problems that users are having, but also improve them. These features, however, do not have a release date specified at the time of publication.

The company said it will provide an official update later regarding the features’ expected launch date. Amazon said the feature will allow users to use the Kindle app to filter their comics.

What Happened With Comixology’s Integration With Kindle

According to Engadget’s story, Amazon’s handling of digital comics service, Comixolgy, has been described as frustrating. The company is still working on not only fixing some features but also adding new ones within its service.

Unfortunately, Comixology won’t be able to switch back to its old software because Amazon officially shut it down shortly after Kindle integration ended. To make matters worse, the digital comics service is the only one users can use to purchase comics piecemeal from different publishers.

Amazon aims not only to solve the problems encountered by users, but also to add new ones while improving those already used.

June 19 marks the day of new comics in the Sunday newspaper.

The Grand Bend Tribune is excited to bring you fresh new comics. We hope you enjoy them, as we tried to choose comics that would be suitable for all ages. We’ve curated a few of our readers’ favourites, too.

Here are the new features you will find on the Sunday Comics page:

Great Nat: Aspiring cartoonist Nate Wright is the star of Big Nate, the daily and Sunday cartoon distributed by NEA since 1991. Nate is 11 years old, four and a half feet tall and holds the all-time record for school detentions . the story. He’s a self-proclaimed genius and a sixth-grade Renaissance man. Nate, who lives with his father and older sister, enjoys harassing his family and teachers with his sarcasm. Wright also wrote The Big Nate book collection which includes “I Smell a Pop Quiz: A Big Nate Book”, “Add More Babes!” and three e-books from ipicturebooks.com: “Big Nate Makes a Splash (the Sunday Strips)”, “Pray for a Fire Drill”, and “Dibs on This Chair”.

Reality check: Cartoonist Dave Whamond offers a quirky view of the world in Reality Check, which exposes the hilarity hidden in everyday situations with a completely goofy look at life.

“I just frame some of the silliness of everyday life in the comic and invite people to take a double take — to look at life from another perspective,” Whamond explains. “Reality Check is more of a state of mind than anything else. The characters could be people you know – maybe even a bit of yourself – but the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

The Argyle Sweater: Scott Hilburn is the designer of the Argyle sweater. It’s a comedy panel where the unexpected is to be expected — where animals can talk, fantasy becomes real, and politicians tell the truth. This comic is a window into a world of humorous absurdity.

buckets offers a realistic snapshot of modern family life: the worries, the chaos and the often overlooked rewards. Examining the daily chaos with a healthy sense of humor, it strikes a chord with parents who juggle the many demands and slight madness of raising a family today.

“The Buckets is for anyone baffled by human behavior and the most exquisite comic for those who wish to see their behavior objectively,” says author Greg Cravens. It’s the story of people who enjoy their weekends more than their jobs – wandering in and out of The Outdoor Galore Store, the woods, the skate park, the river and the problems. They risk their lives and limbs to entertain the reader by entertaining themselves.

The Amazing Spider-Man created by Stan Lee, centers on Peter Parker, an unlucky high school student. When Peter is accidentally bitten by a radioactive spider, he gains superpowers.

Weird by Wayno and Dan Piraro gives an eccentric, exaggerated and bizarre look at everyday life. Hidden symbols in this comic include: eyeballs, dynamite, bunnies, a shoe, a fish tail, a smoking pipe, an alien spaceship, upside down birds and a slice of pie.

Mutts, written by Patrick McDonnel, explores the special bond between best friends Earl the dog and Mooch the cat and their guardians. It shows them living their lives as they should be, sharing friends, food, and naps. Mutts has merchandise for sale online and they donate to animal rescues around the world.

Slylock Fox and children’s comics by Bob Weber, Jr. is another one of our new comics that features puzzles, games, drawing lessons and a cast of furry characters who solve mysteries and teach young readers about art, nature, pets and health.

Free pencils for Tribune readers

We invite children (or adults) to come by Grand Bend Tribune to collect a free box of crayons. Use the crayons to color in the comics or complete the puzzles and games.

We gave a few kids a taste of the comics with a box of crayons. After they finished coloring, they then made hats and boats from the newspapers.

Cyberpunk was once a niche genre rarely seen except for occasional films such as blade runner. Now, cyberpunk is not just a genre but an aesthetic that people love as it tries to ground its science fiction in a way that’s a bit more plausible. As a result, even companies such as DC have embraced cyberpunk with a variety of their comic book lines.

Different DC books have either shown glimpses of the future in comics such as batman beyond or produces entire cyberpunk events like the recent future state that pushed new and classic DC heroes into the future. Adding superheroes to a cyberpunk environment not only produces unique visuals, but also stories that keep things fresh and challenge the status quo.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Batman Beyond 2.0: Mark of Fantasy (2015)


Batman Beyond fights the new Phantasm in Batman Beyond 2.0 Mark Of The Phantasm

More than twenty years after the original film, batman beyond comics revisited Batman: The Mask of Fantasy. Considering the animated movie has become a fan favorite over the years, fans relished the return of the Phantasm with Terry McGinnis facing off against the villain.

RELATED: The 10 Best DC Animated Movies, According To Ranker

It’s a concept the show has used often: taking an old villain from Bruce Wayne’s past and bringing him to the cyberpunk version of Gotham City. It retains the film’s dark mystery elements while offering some unique twists to keep things interesting, using its setting quite well.


Injustice: Gods Among Us (2013)

With the death of Lois Lane and her unborn child, Superman becomes a tyrannical dictator who takes over planet Earth. As a result, cities such as New Metropolis and Gotham are advancing quite quickly due to the technology available to the corrupt Justice League.

Despite its progress, Injustice the comics have one of the darkest depictions of a cyberpunk future with Superman’s regime keeping the human race under martial law. This is where Batman’s Insurgency comes in, battling the evil version of Superman.

Future State: Justice League (2021)


The New Justice League crosses the multiverse in Future State Justice League #2

With the future state event, fans were given a whole new vision for the future of the DC Universe following the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal. This future even featured an all-new version of the Justice League that included Timothy Fox’s Batman, Jon Kent as the second Superman, Yara Flor’s Wonder Woman, and various other new incarnations of DC’s iconic superheroes.


This sleek, cyberpunk new future of the DC world is one of the key things that makes Future State so appealing. It is reminiscent of other futuristic depictions seen in The fifth Element mixed with the aptly titled Cyberpunk 2077. Of course, the new heroes are important and fortunately they are not just clones of their predecessors, but characters in their own right who can stand on their own.

Future State: Harley Quinn (2021)


The story of Harley Quinn in the future state event really puts the “punk” in cyberpunk. When the Magistrate takes over Gotham City, Harley becomes an asset to the paramilitary force. She uses her skills as a psychologist to provide the Magistrate with everything he needs to track down Gotham’s various villains.


RELATED: The 10 Best Harley Quinn Comic Book Stories, According To Reddit

Of all the cities of future state event, the future Gotham is at its most cyberpunk, and its characters reflect that. Harley Quinn’s new design looks straight out of the Cyberpunk 2077 The video game and artwork by Simone Dimeo nails the aesthetic of this world, showing Gotham’s gritty underbelly in a new light.

The End of the Future (2014)


End of futures contracts

Embrace the dark futures seen in films such as The Terminator; The end of the future was one of the most memorable events of the New 52 era due to its dark storytelling mixed with epic action. The artificial intelligence known as Brother Eye had taken over the world with his robotic army, and Batman Beyond travels back in time to try to prevent that future.


Although the story is mostly set in the past, The end of the future doesn’t hold back when it comes to sequences set in the future of Brother Eye. The Terminator the influence is very present, but there are also elements of blade runnerone of the pioneers of the cyberpunk genre.

Future State: Eternal Robin (2021)


Tim Drake as Robin Drenched in Lazarus Resin in Robin Eternal #1

Over the years, DC seemed to forget about Tim Drake, aka The Third Robin, but future state allowed the Boy Wonder to shine again with Eternal Robin. It’s a small but interesting glimpse into the life of Tim Drake as he fends off Gotham City’s magistrate while allying with Spoiler, AKA Stephanie Brown.

Similar to the story of Harley Quinn, Eternal Robin showcases the beauty and ugliness of this future cyberpunk. The city itself is bright, vibrant, and filled with neon while Gotham’s backstreets and seedy underbelly are grimy but are mixed with lots of color, making it a place someone would love and dread to live in.

Legion of Super-Heroes: The Beginning of Tomorrow (1999)


Legion group photo in Legion Of Super-Heroes The Beginning Of Tomorrow

In 1999, Mark Waid restarted The Legion of Super-Heroes with a new origin told with The start of tomorrow. It shows how Saturn Girl, Cosmic Boy, and Live Wire formed the Legion, a superhero team that protects the united planets of the 31st century.

RELATED: The First 10 Members Of The Legion Of Super-Heroes, In Chronological Order

It’s with The start of tomorrow that Mark Waid and various artists give readers one of the best insights into the 31st century. The technologically advanced cities are breathtaking to watch and show how superhero-infused cyberpunk could evolve over the next thousand years.

The Legion: Foundations (2004)


Superboy with the Legion of Super-Heroes on the command bridge in The Legion Foundations

A young Clark Kent, aka Superboy, is brought to the 31st century where he teams up with the Legion of Super-Heroes to battle Darkseid. It’s a very simple and familiar premise which is similar to the anime series based on Legion of Super-Heroes.

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning not only understand these characters, but properly use Superboy as a tool to help newcomers get to grips with the Legion. It’s also through Superboy’s eyes that readers can see the stark contrast between the already fantastical yet contemporary metropolis of the 21st century and the cyberpunk galaxy of the 31st.

Batman beyond neo year (2022)


Terry McGinnis as Batman flying through Gotham in Batman Beyond: Neo Year

Batman Beyond made its biggest comeback in 2022 with Neo Year, a story meant to revamp Batman’s future history for longtime fans and new ones alike. Bruce Wayne died in this story, so the quest to protect the cyberpunk version of Gotham falls entirely on Terry McGinnis.


With the writing talents of Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, who previously worked on Green Arrow, Grayson and Black Nights: Metaland the artistry of Max Dunbar, Batman Beyond: Neo Year is exactly what the cult franchise needed.

Future State: Gotham (2021)


The Bat-Family reunited on a rooftop in Future State Gotham

One of the many reasons cyberpunk works so well is the use of dynamic colors and environments. Future State: Gotham makes the bold choice to tell a cyberpunk story entirely in black and white. The story centers on Jason Todd in his eternal struggle between hero and villain as he is hired by the Magistrate to hunt the Bat-Family.

There are many similarities to another famous cyberpunk comic: Judge Drdd, which was also monochromatic. It’s as much a character piece for Jason Todd as it is a dark glimpse into Gotham City’s dystopian future and although it’s black and white, Giannis Milonogiannis’ artwork is quite detailed and allows the reader to use your imagination for colors.

The boys season 3 is moving fast and has been greenlit for a 4th season. This season, fans see Butcher and the boys align themselves with their comic book counterparts by using Compound V, which temporarily grants them powers. It’s necessary because it’s hard to take on a homicidal Superman when you’re an average Joe.

this scene was so intense, you can feel the horror, sadness and hate on mm’s face when the soldier boy came out, and his look was heartbreaking. Laz Alonso is so awesome. #the boys https://t.co/kowFLQpHgK

Today, we’re looking at the comic book superheroes who have a fighting chance against The Homelander and his super strength, superhuman durability, and heat-vision eyes. It’s evident in the comics and TV series that he’s unmatched. Well, he has a leaf in the comics, but let’s dive into ones that can go hand-in-hand with Homelander from other comic book universes.


While The Boys Have Little Hope Against Homelander, These 10 Supers Tell A Different Story

1) Doctor Strange

Boys Have No Magic (Image via Marvel Comics)

The first is the Sorcerer Supreme himself because magic is not an established ability in The boys‘ world. Thus, Homelander would be at a disadvantage if he encountered Doctor Strange. Frankly, Doctor Strange would wipe the floor with the leader of the Seven. He can think outside the box to solve any problem and has gone head-to-head with Thanos to save the multiverse.

Strange has a wide range of solutions at your fingertips. The easiest would be to send Homelander to another dimension that he has no chance of escaping. It took strange hours to find his way out of the mirror dimension into Spider-Man: No Coming Home.


2) Thief

The next step is obvious. Not only can Rogue match Homelander in strength, durability, and flight, but simple skin-to-skin contact would knock out the Übermensch. Not that Homelander wouldn’t fight because he’s tough enough to withstand Rogue’s draining power, but eventually, she would prevail.

It would be an entertaining fight as he would be on par with Superman and Zod from Steel man but with more blood and curse. Seeing Homelander’s face when he realizes he’s met someone more powerful and he’s not the only man in heaven would be sweet justice for everyone he’s wronged .


3) Invincible

Mark Grayson might not look like a match against him The boys’ antagonist. He’s a teenager after all, he only survived Omni-man’s rampage because he chose not to kill his son and he doesn’t have heat vision. The boys’ Homelander would show no restraint against Invincible.

However, Mark overcame incredible odds in the comics and still came out on top. He fought legions of Viltrumites, which are this particular universe’s equivalent to Kryptonians, and even armies of himself. Homelander has never fought another person even remotely as strong as him.


4) Hulk

There is no contest here. It’s possible Homelander’s heat vision isn’t even in sync with the Hulk. When Hulk’s rage level was high enough, his strength was off the charts. At one point during “World War Hulk”, the green goliath stomped on the ground and shook the entire east coast of the United States. It’s infinitely more devastating than anything Homelander can cause.

Homelander wouldn’t know what to do if he ever met someone as strong as himself, let alone someone far more powerful. Hulk could quickly flip through the antagonist of The boys across the Atlantic Ocean.


5) Shazaam

The boys has no magic users in his universe, so Homelander has no discernible way to defend against them. Beyond that, Shazaam has been shown to perform incredible feats that Homelander could only dream of accomplishing. First of all, its speed is superior. Shazaam is known to travel at sublight speeds in space. Homelander can’t even fly in space.

Shazaam has the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the endurance of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury. His strength is also superior, which makes his punches something Homelander should avoid. Billy Batson, in the form of Shazaam, can move planets.


6) Franklin Richards

Nobody in The boys is on par with Franklin Richards, son of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman. Few people in the Marvel Universe are on the same level as Franklin. He can make any thought of his come true. In Marvel, Franklin is considered an equal of the Celestials, close to divine beings.

Homelander is used to solving all his problems with his fists. That wouldn’t be the case against Franklin. Franklin would control Homelander’s mind, transport him to a place where he couldn’t harm anyone, or cause him to evaporate from existence.


7) Ghost Rider

Ghost Rider is an underrated hero in general. However, he could make quick work of just about anyone in The boys. His penitential gaze would send Homelander into a catatonic state. Homelander may be physically tough, but his spirit is weak. He cares about what others think of him and suffers from megalomania.

If he were to experience all the terrible things he did to others and feel the torment he caused, it would shatter his psyche. It’s pretty clear that Homelander is no match for the supernatural. Then again, maybe a good punch to the chest from Ghost Rider could crumble him into a pile of bones.

It would be a fun fight to watch. It might not be a fair fight at all, but then again, it’s a fight Homelander could win if he can get the upper hand. Vision’s ability to manipulate his own density, however, is what gives him the upper hand. It can increase its density to become a stationary object or decrease it so that the Leader of the Seven cannot touch it.


9) Scarlet Witch

Wanda has been through several power shifts in the comics. She started out as a mutant with the ability to manipulate “luck” around her enemies. Eventually, she was given magical abilities to live up to her “witch” moniker, and then another writer came back to her as being primarily a mutant controlling a specific type of energy like her father, Magneto.

Whichever way you turn it, Wanda Maximoff could snap a finger and erase Homelander from existence. Though his mental state isn’t any more stable than Homelander’s and would likely become a high level threat, forcing the boys into action. However, they wouldn’t really match him since they are powerless.


10) Superman

The boys’ the antagonist is just a Superman proxy. Thus, Homelander would not live up to the original. Not only does Clark Kent have a more extensive arsenal of powers (X-ray vision, cold breath, and, depending on the iteration, solar flare), but his strength is greater than Homelander’s. This is evident in comic books and TV series.

In the comics, when The Seven goes on a mission to save a plane full of people, there’s not much he can do. He thinks hitting the tail will level him up, but instead sends him into the Brooklyn Bridge. In the show, he says there is nothing to push to transport the plane. Superman, on the other hand, has saved several airplanes in comics, movies, and TV shows like it’s a walk in the park.

Ms. Marvel’s 10 Closest Friends In The Comics https://wileytoons.com/ms-marvels-10-closest-friends-in-the-comics/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 04:45:00 +0000 https://wileytoons.com/ms-marvels-10-closest-friends-in-the-comics/ Ms. Marvel eventually premiered on Disney+ on June 8, 2022, marking Kamala Khan’s introduction to the MCU.

Ms. Marvel eventually premiered on Disney+ on June 8, 2022, marking Kamala Khan’s introduction to the MCU. Starring Iman Vellani as the title character, this series follows Kamala’s teenage years as she becomes New Jersey’s favorite superhero, Ms. Marvel. Of course, this will not be a journey that Kamala will undertake alone.



RELATED: The 10 Best Ms. Marvel Villains, Ranked

So far, the series has featured Kamala’s family and some of her best friends. However, there are still many characters missing from the comics. Whether superpowered or not, Kamala has plenty of close friends and allies in battle who are sure to be coming to the MCU soon.

ten Amulet and Ms. Marvel are very similar

Created by Saladin Ahmed and Sara Alfageeh, Fadi Fadlalah is an Arab teenage superhero from Michigan who moved to New Jersey. His superhero nickname, Amulet, comes from the fact that he can create magical shields called nazar sigils using a powerful talisman that has been in his family for years. He first appeared in Gorgeous Ms. Marvel #13where he helped Kamala against a demon threatening the carnival.

Although Amulet has only appeared in five Marvel comics, he is already one of Kamala’s closest allies, especially in battle. As two teenagers of color living in the same town and trying to balance their normal lives with their superhero duty, they soon realized they had a lot in common.

Self-proclaimed anarcho-atheist Gabe Hillman is Tyesha’s younger brother. He and Kamala first met in Ms. Marvel #5 at Aamir and Tyesha’s engagement party, but they didn’t really connect until 8 issues later when Gabe transferred to Kamala’s school and got to see Ms. Marvel in action.

Given that they’re basically family — the term step-siblings has been used, but he doesn’t really like it — Gabe and Kamala have developed a closer relationship over time. During Kamala’s disappearance, he was one of those who took over fighting crime in New Jersey. Since Tyesha has already been chosen for Ms. Marvelfans are also expecting Gabe to join the MCU.

8 Vivian was Kamala’s teammate in Champions

Vivian, usually referred to as Viv, is a synthezoid created by the Vision in an effort to become more human based on the logic that humans always have families. She first appeared in Vision by Tom King and Gabriel Fernandez, a highly recommended Marvel comic that explores human nature through the perspective of synthezoids.

In 2016, Viv joined the Champions, a new teenage supergroup founded by Miles Morales, Nova, and Ms. Marvel after the Avengers underestimated them. During her time as champion, Viv and Kamala became close friends. Unfortunately, she ended up betraying them at the CRADLE

seven Red Dagger and Kamala learned to trust each other

Kareem, also known as Red Dagger or Laal Khanjeer, is a young Pakistani man from Badin who lives with Kamala’s grandmother in Karachi. He and Kamala met during Ms. Marvel #12 after Kamala’s visit to Karachi. Unfortunately, they didn’t get along, both being suspicious of each other.

Later, during Ms. Marvel #23, Kareem visited New Jersey as an exchange student while living with the Khan family. Since his presence in New Jersey made Kamala insecure, they weren’t exactly nice to each other. However, they developed a bickering relationship, evidently rooted in mutual appreciation and trust.

6 Mike Gutierrez and Kamala almost had bad blood

Michaela Gutierrez Miller, also known as Mike, is a smart, blue-haired girl who goes to school at Coles Academic High School alongside Kamala and her other friends. She first appeared as the girlfriend of Bruno Carrelli. Given Kamala’s romantic tension with Bruno, it didn’t sit well with the hero at first.

However, his grudge did not last long. After meeting Mike, Kamala realized she was a great person. They have become very good friends. After Bruno left for Wakanda with Kwezi in Ms. Marvel #12, Kamala made sure to keep Mike busy so she didn’t suffer for her ex-boyfriend.

5 Zoe Zimmer started out as Kamala’s nemesis

Originally Kamala’s bully, Zoe Zimmer was the Queen Bee at Coles Academic High School. Popular and beautiful, she was a totally mean girl. However, his attitude changed after the Secret Wars convergence, where Earth-616 and Earth-1610 almost became one.

Being so close to death caused Zoe to re-evaluate her life. She ditched her old ways, befriended Kamala, dumped her boyfriend Josh, and became a lesbian. After this change in attitude, she became one of Kamala’s closest friends and one of the most important allies alongside Nakia and Bruno.


4 Nova and Kamala have created a new super team together

Samuel “Sam” Alexander is the son of former Nova Centurion Jesse Alexander. After Gamora and Rocket Raccoon trained him to use his father’s helmet, he joined the Avengers, but quit along with Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man. The three friends founded the teenage supergroup, the Champions.

As Sam was suspicious of Kamala and refused to reveal his true identity to her, Sam and Kamala had a rocky start. However, that changed soon enough. Now that Nova has been confirmed to join the MCU, fans are certainly hoping to see them side by side in battle.


3 Nakia Bahadir is Kamala’s first friend

A social activist of Turkish origin, Nakia Bahadir is Kamala’s best friend. As her family also belongs to the Khan Family Mosque, she and Kamala have been in each other’s lives from the beginning. When they were younger, they bonded over the fact that their names were “strange” for their context.

Like all of Kamala’s friends, Nakia is a brave and smart girl who also helps Ms. Marvel in her superhero pursuits. Nakia is a very devoted Muslim and a super loyal friend. For example, when Zoe confessed to having a crush on her, Nakia respectfully let her know that she didn’t feel the same but would support her no matter what.


2 Miles Morales is Kamala’s closest super friend

Originally from Earth-1610, Miles Morales became Spider-Man after being bitten by a genetically modified spider in a universe where Peter Parker had died. After the Multiverse was destroyed and rebuilt during the Secret Wars, he and his family relocated to Earth-616. Here he met Ms. Marvel.

As teenagers, Kamala and Miles bonded over many topics, but mostly over the disappointment of seeing their adult heroes act the way they did during Second Civil War. After leaving the Avengers, they created their own super team, the Champions. Eventually, Miles also left that team, but he and Kamala remained in communication.


1 Bruno Carrelli is Kamala’s best friend

Bruno Carrelli has been Kamala’s best friend since they were young, as well as her primary love interest on the show. He is a young Italian-American man who helped Kamala with his super alter ego from the first moment. Bruno’s unquestioning loyalty, combined with his awesome IQ of 170, makes him Kamala’s most useful ally.

In theory, the relationship between Kamala and Bruno is perfect. They love each other, support each other and share many things. Unfortunately, Kamala’s time as Ms. Marvel hasn’t given them time to try it out for real. In the meantime, Bruno remains Kamala’s closest friend in the comics as well as the TV series. Hopefully that won’t change soon in any of these universes.

The sand man is one of the most famous graphic novel series to ever see the light of day, and a screen adaptation has been long overdue since the 90s. Now that Netflix is ​​releasing the series on August 5th, thousands of readers have looking forward to seeing scenes from the panels and pages animated in glorious Technicolor, and even the teaser gave viewers scenes taken straight from the source material.

In a brief sequence, the series is already shaping up to be what fans have been dreaming of for years. Granted, there are certainly differences in art direction and casting, but the core elements of Neil Gaiman’s genius masterpiece are all there.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Rituals


Dream is captured in a magic circle in Sandman

Magic plays a key role in nearly all of Sandman’s storylines, and the rituals that Rodrick Burgess performs with his cult of wizards are what draw Dream of the Endless to the mortal plane. Right from the teaser, the sequence of mystics attempting to capture ether death is a realized recreation of the summoning seen in the comics, including its end result.

The image of Dream collapsed in a summoning circle surrounded by a group of powerful wizards is taken from the early issues of Preludes and Nocturnes, and it’s one of the first images fans will notice right off the bat. That being said, it’s definitely one of the easiest to adapt to the screen.


The look


Sandman in the comics giving the shine alongside his live-action version

Some would argue that the Sandman himself looks a bit too human compared to the mysterious Master of Dreams seen in the pages of the original comics. However, the look he gives his captors is the exact same look and expression he gives to the camera as he waits to be freed from his glass prison.

RELATED: Sandman and 9 Other Best Neil Gaiman Characters

The dream rarely takes on a life, but if looks could kill, viewers would be six feet under. It’s a look that says he knows he’s going to escape, he knows he’s going to get revenge, and he knows the occultists are going to suffer.


Dream Captured By Occultists


The sandman is trapped under glass

Capturing one of the mighty Endless is no easy task, but neither is it possible to contain them for generations. In the comics, Dream is mistakenly captured in place of his sister, Death. In order to properly study him, Burgess and his team must keep him under surveillance while keeping themselves safe from his wrath.

In the comics, most witchcraft paraphernalia is often intricate and elaborate, but the filmmakers seem to have recreated it beautifully for the screen. Especially the large glass cell where a Naked Dream sits, plotting his escape.

Dream about escaping the circle


Dream escapes through a vortex in Sandman

The explosive escape sequence scene in the trailer as Dream exits the deadly plane into a swirling, glowing vortex of light is the one that’s immediately taken from Preludes and Nocturnes. In fact, it’s one of the largest and most recognizable early issue images of the entire series.


It’s not just done to show off the art and visuals, but to show how powerful the character is without the help of their artifacts. If Dream is able to overpower the guards, evade enchantments, and open a portal between the plains of existence without his power sources, imagine what he could do at full capacity.

Dream blowing the sand


Tom Sturridge as Morpheus Dream in The Sandman

In the trailer, Dream is able to overpower the security guards by blowing a handful of magic sand in their direction, which he has done before in the comics. Although not as saturated in the heavily inked colors of graphic novels, Tom Sturridge is able to recreate Dream’s expression and appearance with impressive ease.


RELATED: The Sandman and 9 Other New TV Series Coming to Netflix in 2022

While some might call this a bit of artistic overkill, those familiar with Neil Gaiman’s work will recognize it as one of Sandman’s most memorable poses. That might be an excuse for the show to show off its effects budget, but it’s more than likely going to be one of the highlights of the opening episodes.

Mad Hettie talks to Constantine

Although the series has been requested and desired for years, not everything will be 100% true to the book. For example, is the gender exchange of hellblazer’s Constantine. Jenna Coleman’s portrayal aside, the exchange between Constantine and Mad Hettie shown at the start of the trailer might be shot slightly differently, but the exchange happens almost verbatim in the comics.

After the Sandman escapes the clutches of Burgess, one of the first things he must do is find his magic sandbag. Luckily for him, he has an ally who specializes in the forms and functions of the supernatural.

Lucifer Morning Star


Netflix The Sandman Shows Gwendoline Christie Image As Lucifer Header

One of the biggest controversies surrounding the show’s casting choices was Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer Morningstar. This is more than likely due to the fact that most viewers are used to seeing Tom Ellis as the suave, good-natured demon of the Lucifer TV show. However, compared to the comic version of the same character, Christie is unquestionably more skilled.

RELATED: Sandman: The 10 Best Dreamlord Powers

In the comics, Lucifer is an androgynous blonde portrayed as a corrupt fallen angel rather than the soft-spoken charmer seen in the TV series. Christie’s adaptation is much more in line with the version Neil Gaiman presented in his works rather than what some might expect. However, the softer exterior does nothing to hamper the wickedness and genuinely evil nature of the beast beneath.

Dream holding his helmet


Dream holds her helm in Sandman

One of the most common images throughout Sandman Lore is of Dream holding up his gas mask-like helmet as a sign of triumph or contemplation. Fans of the series know that there are three things the Sandman can never do without, his magic sand pouch, his ruby ​​and his helmet. They are the symbols of his power and authority, and they are the artifacts that give him such powerful abilities.


Dozens of superheroes wear masks, but Dream’s is a special case. Crafted from the spine and skull of an ancient god, the helmet acts as a seal, source of power, and protection. While he’s certainly a formidable force of nature without it, it does increase his intimidation factor by several miles.

A student from Memorial University has been honored by the Humanities and Social Sciences Federation.

Elisabeth Pfeiffer says comics are ripe for an examination of sociopolitical issues of gender, race and sexuality as the art form becomes more popular than ever, especially thanks to film adaptations.

Elisabeth Pfeiffer, a doctoral candidate and comics researcher in the Department of English at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, recently received the federation’s Congress Graduate Merit Award (CGMA).

CGMAs recognize outstanding graduate students and the work they present at the federation’s annual conference, the largest gathering of scholars in Canada and one of the largest in the world.

Ms. Pfeiffer was nominated for the award by the Canadian Society for the Study of Comics.

Exploring Blackface and Racism in Comics

Ms. Pfeiffer’s Humanities and Social Sciences Federation presentation focused on blackface in comic books and how blackface is rooted in minstrelsy – an inherently racist form of early 19th century entertainment that mocked and dehumanized black people and black culture.

But he also detailed the history of white women advocating for white supremacy, the unique intersectionality of sexism and racism experienced by women of color, and how “white women [in pop culture] appropriated the looks and language of black women for profit, “coolness” and fame. »

Titled Basic Bitches and Their Curiosity with Blackness: Comics and Blackface, the presentation was inspired by his mastery work on the comic book series, Whore Planet.

“Superhero movies are seen by millions of people and are a billion dollar industry.” — Elisabeth Pfeiffer

She describes the series as a feminist dystopia where women and marginalized genders are sent to an off-world prison planet by a patriarchal system.

“Bitch planet Do what The Handmaid’s Tale is criticized for not doing so, and it examines how white supremacy plays a role in the freedoms that are most likely to be taken away,” she said.

In one case in the female dog planet anthology, a white woman uses futuristic technology to add melanin to her skin, in what is essentially an advanced form of blackface.

This prompted Ms. Pfeiffer to consider other scenarios where white women, in particular, appear black.

An example is when Superman The character Lois Lane uses Kryptonian technology to turn “black” to gather information for a newspaper article about an African community.

Comic studies more vital than ever

Comic studies is a booming field in the discipline of English these days, and for good reason.

“Superhero movies are seen by millions and are a billion-dollar industry, and other comic book genres have been adapted into TV shows, movies, and video games, exposing the comics to an even wider audience,” Ms Pfeiffer said.

“The industry itself is growing exponentially, especially with digital and webcomics. Comics are ripe for examining sociopolitical issues of gender, race and sexuality precisely because they use both words and images, giving us time to pause and really think about what these two aspects combined represent. And, really, who doesn’t love reading comics!”

Mentorship and Expertise

Ms Pfeiffer says she particularly enjoys exploring feminist dystopias and utopias in comic storytelling because dystopias help people recognize the flaws in our society, while utopias allow us to imagine a better, caring society. from everyone.

She also says she is excited to continue her studies with the “incredible” Dr. Nancy Pedri, who is also a comic book specialist.

“Honestly, it’s a dream come true and I’m so lucky! Dr. Pedri is one of the experts in this area of ​​study…and has also been an incredibly supportive supervisor. It’s not easy being an academic with two young children and in a field that has long been dominated by men.

Disney+ Daredevil Reboot Will Be Lighter Than Netflix Show https://wileytoons.com/disney-daredevil-reboot-will-be-lighter-than-netflix-show/ Mon, 06 Jun 2022 22:25:51 +0000 https://wileytoons.com/disney-daredevil-reboot-will-be-lighter-than-netflix-show/ Marvel producer Sana Amanat thinks the lighter tone of Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Javier Rodríguez’s Daredevil run could inspire the Disney+ reboot.

Marvel producer Sana Amanat thinks the lighter tone of Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Javier Rodríguez’s Daredevil run could inspire the Disney+ reboot.

Marvel Studios may have the perfect way to bring daredevil in the MCU while honoring the comics.

Ms. Marvel co-creator and executive producer Sana Amanat spoke to Murphy’s Multiverse about the upcoming Disney+ show, which sees the creative shepherd a character she helped bring to the page as a writer for the little screen. But as Kamala Khan’s world slips easily into the streaming service, fans worry about the next daredevil to restart. One option, which the outlet offered Amanat, was to base the series on the more playful tone of Mark Waid, Chris Samnee, and Javier Rodríguez’s character run.

“I don’t see why,” Amanat said when asked if the lighthearted hero twist could work for the new show. “Mark Waid’s run was pretty seminal. We’ve never seen that kind of story and I love the twist of that, and it was such an unexpected take on the character. In the same way, I wouldn’t be not surprised if they did. something like that in the MCU. Why not? We like to take risks and that’s the fun part of exploring multiple stories. So maybe.”

Although Waid has previously worked on daredevil, the arrival of artist Chris Samnee and colorist Javier Rodríguez in 2013 added a colorful tone to the typically dark character. As Waid, Samnee, and Rodríguez continued to collaborate on The Man Without Fear over the next two years, brighter stories emerged that were a big departure from past takes on the character. Eventually, Daredevil the hero and comic would return to his gritty roots.

Despite Netflix daredevil series coming after the acclaimed Waid/Samnee/Rodriguez run, it went in the darker direction of previous comics. And this version of the show even made its way to Disney+ along with the other Defenders, so it’s not impossible that the daredevil the reboot will follow these traces. Of course, the original Disney+ content is considerably lighter, so some changes will likely be made. But if the minds behind the show decide to take a page from Waid and Samnee, perhaps even move Matt Murdock to San Francisco, then Marvel Studios and Disney would have the perfect excuse for a lighter take on the typically brutal vigilante.


Seasons 1–3 of daredevil are now streaming on Disney+. The reported reboot does not yet have a release date.
