To celebrate Marvel and Netflix’s new Iron Fist show and the new Iron Fist comic series (by Ed Brisson and Mike Perkins), we’re going to list some of the other top hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel Universe! Obviously, the Marvel Universe is a biiiiiiig place and it’s full of talented fighters, so some of your favorites may not appear below. Seriously, we’d have dozens and dozens of names on an “honorable mentions” list – Moon Knight, Deadpool, Taskmaster, so on and so on! If you feel like there’s a Marvel character who deserves some extra respect, give them some love in the comments – feel free to make reading recommendations to your fellow fans, too!
When I receive messages from new Junkies asking what action figure line is a good one to start with, I have found that I am always pointing them to Diamond Select Toys’ Marvel Select line. Why? You simply cannot get more bang for your hard earned buck. DST’s signature oversized library book spine packaging (amazingly helpful for storage) and some of the best sculpts in this price range make the Marvel Select line a must have for collectors. But here’s the kicker: most of them are just $25 on MidtownComics.com making them the ultimate starter kit figures for the “Make Mine Marvel” crowd that is looking for a little something extra in their Select choice.
The third Wolverine solo movie, Logan, is almost in theaters! There’s a lot of reasons to get excited – like the cinematic debut of X-23 and the R rating – and you can bet we’re pretty much counting down the days until we can watch Hugh Jackman unleash as the adamantium clawed X-Man. In the meantime, let’s prepare for the movie by reading some comics that Logan appears to be loosely inspired by, and other comics that just might one day serve as inspiration for an X-23 movie!
Daredevil has faced many cruel and scary people over the years, but few are as bloodthirsty and frightening as Marvel’s ultimate evil marksman: Bullseye. The accurate assassin is known for being a vicious villain, capable of throwing anything with lethal accuracy and boasting reflexes quick enough to block a bullet, and now he’s returning to the spotlight in his very own ongoing series. We all know what the fearsome foe does for work, but what does he do for fun? The new series – by writers Ed Brisson and Marv Wolfman, and artists Guillermo Sanna and Alec Morgan – goes on sale this Wednesday (get your copy HERE), so we’re celebrating with some fun facts about the barbaric bad guy!
