Thanos Kills The Marvel Universe in ZERO DAY

Thanos may have been defeated like a chump in the recent Civil War II, but the Mad Titan looks to be getting his revenge by standing atop a mountain of fallen Marvel heroes in a first look at January 18's U.S.Avengers #2.

As teased in this week's U.S.Avengers #1, this appears to be "Zero Day" - a calamatous event that the future Danielle Cage warned heroes about over the course of recent New Avengers issues.

Here is the solicitation for that issue.

Avengers : Age of Ultron Review

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

The most anticipated movie of the summer is finally here. The stakes couldn't be higher for the mighty Avengers. However while the stakes are raised higher, the feel of intensity is not there. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a filmed made well done, but taste medium rare. Does Age of Ultron live up to expectations? Yes it does. Does Joss Whedon deliver on the action, story and direction? Yes and no. 

As stated in the synopsis above. Tony Stark (Iron Man) has created a peacekeeping program, to ensure better protection of the planet. When the program becomes aware of its existence, it revolts and Ultron begins to plot his own plans for peace. However not without a price, which is human extinction.

Joss Whedon nails the overall story arc for the film. The film has the classic "Frankenstein" feel to it. The feeling of I have created a monster weighs heavy on Tony Stark. When this dynamic is front and center the film is amazing. The relationship between Ultron and Tony is a rocky one and explored in depth. Since Ultron is Tony's creation, his actions are a reflection of Tony's true feelings. What I love most is how the Avengers questions Tony's motives, especially Captain America. Who gave Tony the authority to take such an action? Why does he feel compelled to be the policeman of the world? This causes a rift in the relationship between Cap and Tony, which is a nice set up for Civil War.

If the movie kept this momentum I would have enjoyed it more. Unfortunately the film releases the tension in order to keep with the tone of the overall cinematic universe. What started as a great character arc for Stark gets toned down to focus on Black Widow's rushed, underdeveloped relationship with The Hulk. The love story would've been better if it had built up to it like how she flirted with Captain America in “Winter Solider.” Nothing was truly hinted in previous films that they would be together. This leaves the relationship coming off as random. It takes away from the high stakes established by Ultron. That feeling of intensity I had was lost when the film had to focus on individual story arcs. This is the biggest problem with Marvel Cinematic universe. It tends to focus on the later than the now, which makes the films feel like a setup than an actual complete story.  The film had to play the role of sequel and origin story for some characters such as The Vision, Black Widow, Ultron and Quicksilver. Whedon does the best he could, giving us a sequel for established characters, while balancing enough time for us to connect to the new ones. It was nice to learn more about Hawkeye who finally get his shine. Jeremey Renner shows us a Hawkeye that is more than an archer for hire. Exploring his life was refreshing but it could have easily been a one shot deal. 

Overall Age of Ultron is a fun ride. The action delivers on what you expect. However, with no real intensity, you get the feeling the Avengers will all make it out. The tone constantly shuffling from dark to family friendly gives a feeling that Marvel is trying to play it safe.

15 Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In Marvel Movies

Hey Otakus and Geeks fans, Here are some Easter eggs you might have missed in some of your favorite Marvel Movies. Some where Known and out in the open, Some where hidden and True comic fans would notice, and others were deleted scenes just on DVD.


When Bucky and Steve Rogers enter Stark Expo a figure in a bright red jumpsuit is seen behind glass. This is the original Human Torch, Marvel's very first character, back when it was called Timely Comics.

The original Human Torch, from the Golden Age of comic books, was an android character who started out as something of a villain, and later became a superhero. The character eventually fell into obscurity while Captain America prospered, and is something of a forgotten relic today.


During the climactic battle with Electro, the two bounce through the electrical conduits causing them to emit singular notes, which play out to "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" nursery rhyme.


In X2, Mystique hacks a computer in a government building where Striker works. It brings up a list of the names of many famous marvel Mutants. Remy LeBeau (Gambit), Ororo Munroe (Storm), Jamie Madrox (Multiple Man) ,Maximoff (2)  (Quick Silver and Scarlet Witch), Danielle Moonstar (WarPath).


In a deleted scene taking place after the events of The Wolverine, Logan is given a suitcase, he opens it to reveal the original brown and yellow comic suit. Most fans will remember this suit when Wolverine joined the X-Men. (Not to be confused with the Yellow and Blue Suit)


 The only actor to appear in both Spider-Man franchises, the actor who played the burglar who killed Uncle Ben appears as Ratha's chauffeur.


 Harry Osborn's assistant is named Felicia Hardy, aka Black Cat. Black Cat has been both a villain and an ally to Spider-Man over the years when she's not busy cat burgling. Felicia Hardy is the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar. After suffering a traumatic event as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father's footsteps, adopted her costumed identity as the Black Cat


A mercenary, The Red Skull, and of Hydra, Brock Rumlow makes his first appearance in Winter Soldier. By the end not only is Crossbones charred to a crisp but his criss-crossed gun straps make for a pretty great translation of his comic costume. Crossbones first appeared during the "Bloodstone Hunt" storyline in the issues of Captain America. Technically, he first appeared in issue #359, in one panel, as a figure watching from the shadows. In the next issue, he was shown in costume, but again he simply observed the Captain and his allies from afar. He later revealed his name to Diamondback before knocking her unconscious in his first full appearance in issue #362.


 In the original run of Thor, the mighty god was sent down to earth and into the body of disabled med-student, Donald Blake. The alias has popped up over the years and is winked at with the Thor's fake ID in the film.


Right before The Avengers cuts to the credits, though, we see Tony Stark and Pepper Potts in the damaged Stark Tower, throwing together some new plans on that awesome computer thing. If  you look closely ( PAUSE THE DVD LOL) there are symbols for each of the member's quarters symbolized by their icons: Thor's hammer, Hawkeye's bow, Cap's Shield etc.


Dr. Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake Nelson) ends up with the Hulk's radioactive blood dripping into an open head wound and his entire head begins to expand, he smiles. The Leader, Hulks nefarious nemesis BIO: Born Samuel Sterns in Boise, Idaho, he worked for a chemical plant there in a menial capacity. While moving radioactive materials into an underground storage area, some of the radioactive materials exploded, bombarding Sterns with gamma radiation. He recovered, and found that the radiation had changed him from an ordinary human into a green-skinned, super-intelligent entity with an oversized brain housed in a towering cranium. As was the case with most individuals mutated by gamma radiation early-on, the particular set of characteristics Sterns acquired by exposure to it were said to result from a subconscious desire; in his case, the desire to be as smart as his brother Philip, who was a physicist in the employ of the same facility. Calling himself the Leader, Sterns embarked on various ambitious criminal schemes.


General Ross dusts off a Stark Industries branded liquid serum to give Blonsky, revealing the name Dr. Reinstein. In comic cannon, Reinstein was the man who administered the Super Soldier Serum to Steve Rogers making him into Captain America. Weapons PLUS is also a Marvel reference to the Weapon's program that brought us Wolverine, (Weapon X) and Deadpool etc.


 Most comic fans knew Gwen Stacy was going to die once they saw the Green Goblin in Amazing Spiderman 2. But the most subtle nod was when the broken hands of the clock finally stop spinning to point at 1:21, Gwen Stacy died back in Amazing Spider-Man #121


Adam Warlock's cocoon appears in The Collector's chamber. The character debuted in Fantastic Four #66-67 (Sept.-Oct. 1967) in a story written by Stan Lee and pencilled and co-plotted by Jack Kirby. After a second appearance as "Him" in Thor #165-166 (June–July 1969), writer and then Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas and penciler Gil Kane significantly revamped Him as the allegorical Messiah Adam Warlock in Marvel Premiere #1 (April 1972)


 In a scene when Capt America and Falcon are Interrogating Jasper Stitwell, He mentions Stephen Strange as one the people they are keeping an eye on as a potential threat to hydra. This leads us to believe there will be a Doctor Strange Movie Coming soon and will be linked to the Avengers Universe.


 At the end of Iron Man 2, a map on the wall at S.H.I.E.L.D's  HQ shows some parts of the map Highlighted. Africa (Possible appearance of Black Panther in future Movies) and the Atlantic Ocean (Namor a Member of the Avengers) This could also be a good way for the studios to connect the Universes as NAMOR, Professor X, Reed Richards, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange are all apart of the Illuminati.The group forms at some time in the aftermath of the Kree-Skrull War, and probably after the Avengers/Defenders war. Iron Man realizes that each of the individual members had information about these alien races beforehand, and they could have collectively stopped it. He brings together the Illuminati with the Black Panther in Wakanda, and proposes that they form a government of superhumans.

There are many other Marvel Easter Eggs though out different movies, Like Capt. America's Body in a Deleted/Alternate Opening in the Incredible Hulk and when Agent Coulson hands Tony Starks a file that reads:"Project Pegasus" and "Project 42". These are codenames for a project Iron Man works on during the Civil War storyline, a prison for super villains called Project 42, at a place called Project Pegasus.

If you saw any Easter Eggs I missed let me know in the comments Below!

News: Axis Teaser

                              Image Credit: Marvel Comics

Uncanny Avengers had the most blatant tease inside the pages of Marvel Comics for the upcoming AXIS event, with Alex “Havok” Summers permanently “disfigured,” and the Red Skull launching his campaign, putting his “S-Men” to work.

Yesterday AXIS #1 teaser from Marvel is clearly following up on that. It’s the Red Skull and the sentence, “You’ll welcome this cleansing, Alex.” It seems Red Skull has plans directly in place for Havok, and will be targeting him in particular. With rumors that the Inversion in act two of AXIS will affect the younger Summers, it sure seems like they could be true.
