Marvel’s Iron Man: The Complete 1994 Animated Series DVD

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment,

May 28, 2010

Fox Kids' Iron Man animated series ran for only two seasons in the mid 1990s, and I remember watching regularly back then. Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is banking on that twenty-something nostalgia and the timeliness of issuing this bare bones, 3-DVD set so close to the theatrical release of Iron Man 2. Well, after watching the episodes that aired during Iron Man's first season, I'm fairly certain my nostalgia was terribly misplaced. More

Iron Man 2

Studio: Marvel; Distributed by Paramount Pictures
Directed by Jon Favreau; Starring: Robert Downey, Jr., Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson

May 07, 2010

Sparks flyliterallywhen Robert Downey, Jr. and Mickey Rourke share the screen in Iron Man 2. Rourke's character, the vengeful Russian physicist Ivan Vanko, is on the attack, with deadly electric whips of metal stemming from his arms, when he first confronts Tony Stark (Downey) on a Monaco speedway. But those expecting the figurative sparks to fly between Downey and Rourke, two of American film's more daring actors and intriguing offscreen personalities, will be disappointed. More

Spider-Woman (Issue 1)

Marvel

Written by Brian Michael Bendis; Art by Alex Maleev; Cover by Alex Maleev and Alex Ross

Sep 28, 2009

The debut issue of Spider-Woman is an OK, albeit belated first step. Marvel delayed Jessica Drew's rebooted run to give time for the motion comic adaption to be finished. Originally this comic was meant to be a direct follow-up to the maxiseries Secret Invasion. Instead, we get hazy references to the Skrull Queen inhabiting Drew's body/mind, thus severing her ties with New Avengers. Her "woe is me" drama doesn't come off quite as compelling as five-time Eiser recipient Brian Michael Bendis (House of M, New Avengers) probably intended. More

New Avengers: The Reunion

Marvel

Written by Jim McCann, Penciled by David Lopez

Sep 10, 2009

For fans of the West Coast Avengers series from the early 1980s, New Avengers: The Reunion scratches a certain long-neglected itch. And it also exposes, in a sense, the limitations of the 30-year+ serial story. Former couple Bobbi Morse (aka Mockingbird) and Clint Barton (known for most of his career as Hawkeye, but now going by the decidedly less campy and rather ho-hum identity of Ronin) hash out what remains of their relationship while playing at high-stakes superheroics.
