Video: TNTM – Unboxing SideShow Collectibles X-23 Premium Format statue

If you watched the 2017 Logan movie based on the Marvel Comics Wolverine character, you were introduced to a young Laura Kinney. She is one of the Weapon X test subjects named X-23.

The Weapon X program wanted to clone Logan, but all attempts were unsuccessful due to a damaged Y chromosome. The decision is made to replicate the X chromosome and produce a female clone. There were 22 failures at producing a viable sample to combine with an embryo. The 23rd time was a success.

Laura was raised in captivity and groomed to be a ruthless and skilled killing machine. She has a heightened healing factor like Wolverine, but she only has two retractable claws in her hands. She does however, have a retractable toe spike in each foot.

Her claws and toe spikes have been coated with adamantium, but she escaped before they were able to fuse the metal to her skeleton.

Laura/X-23 is highly trained in the use of long range weapons and explosives. She is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant with intensive training in numerous armed and unarmed martial arts techniques. Laura is also highly educated and so far has displayed fluency in French and Japanese. Her intellect has been described as being “off the charts”.

The X-23 Premium Format Figure stands 25” tall, as Laura Kinney leaps into the fray on top of a severed Sentinel hand base while a mechanical arm reaches up to grab her. With a quick SNIKT, she’s ready to tear up her enemies with dual metal knuckle claws and her signature toe claw exposed.

The polyresin X-23 Premium Format Figure wears a sculpted costume with yellow and dark blue paneling detailed to mimic realistic fabric-like textures. Her costume also features matching gloves, a black belt with a red and gold “X” buckle, and boots detailed with “X” treads.

TNTM: Captain Marvel #8 introduces new superhero

Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) has had a rough go of it lately.  She was trapped in an alternate realm with a few other heroines. She managed to break free, but that joy was cut short when the press outed her as a half Kree warrior.

In the new “Falling Star” story-line a new superhero steps in to help Captain Marvel in the midst of a big battle with some alien bad guys.  This new super powered goodie introduces herself as, Star and she looks very familiar.

She holds a strong resemblance to a younger version of Carol Danvers.  That of course is by design.

Captain Marvel artist Carmen Nunez Carnero had the following to say about the familiar look of this new superhero.  “The idea for Star was that she should be like a younger version of Captain Marvel. Somebody for the public to empathize with and see as a new, better Super Hero. Regarding the look, we worked on it a lot—especially the colors that should be elemental to her design. Since her name is ‘Star,’ of course that element should be prominent on her uniform, but it shouldn’t look similar to Captain Marvel or Captain America. After many tests, we finally decided on a classic look—soft lines, bright colors, facemask to preserve her anonymity. The motif that I like most on the suit is how I could integrate the star as part of it, giving shape to her shoulders. “I hope this character becomes a staple of the Marvel Universe, because Star has a lot of potential, and she’s going to give us really unique scenes with Carol.”

star

Writer Kelly Thompson said: “Star is this mysterious new hero that’s showing up in New York in our ‘Falling Star’ arc. She’s sort of ascending as Carol is suddenly struggling and ‘descending,’ and it creates a lot of weird parallels and insecurities for Carol.  Normally this kind of thing wouldn’t phase Carol at all but in CAPTAIN MARVEL #8, she finds herself quite suddenly in a very low place, so seeing someone, a young blonde someone that sort of reminds her of herself, being perceived as her replacement is hard to take in stride. It feels like one more hit when you don’t have many hits left to give. I expect and hope for Star to be around the Marvel Universe for a long time. I don’t want to say too much or give too much away for the upcoming story, but she’s got a ton of potential just waiting to be explored.”

Captain Marvel #8 has sold out and is slated to go into second printing.  It sounds like they plan to do more development on this character.  She might even stick around for a while.  Who knows, we may just see her get her own title.  If you haven’t snagged your copy yet, run to your local comic shop before they are all gone.

Official Description

CAPTAIN MARVEL #8
(W) Kelly Thompson (A) Carmen Nunez Carnero (CA) Amanda Conner
CAPTAIN MARVEL: FALLING STAR! From the moment she returned to full-time Avengers duty in New York City, Captain Marvel’s life has been nonstop…and slightly weird. But she’s about to take on a brand-new threat – and a very old one! When her Kree heritage is exposed to the world in dramatic fashion, Carol goes from most beloved hero to public enemy number one overnight – and it’s pushing her to the darkest edge. Can she save the day even while the world turns on her? Does she want to?

Video: TNTM – Marvel Comics debuts Superhero team inspired by AXE Body Spray

I wish I were making this up.  AXE Body Spray has teamed up (by that I mean paid lots of money) with Marvel to create an all new superhero team.

All we know so far is the team is made up of five freshmen from the Future Minds School of Science and Technology based in Chicago.  These five students; Damien Garcia, Lyssa Jordan, Danny Li, Emily Everheart, and Tarell Taylor, use their skills and know-how… along with some high tech Wakandan technology, to become the superheroes; Burner, Windchill, Kid Vanish, Override, and Double Time.

If that isn’t enough for ya, the name of their team is…”The Fresh-men”.

According to the trailer, it appears they will be assisted in their crime fighting by the Avengers. There is no mention as to what media the Fresh-men will be published in, but the promotion is tied to the Marvel Unlimited subscription service that gives members unlimited access to over 25,000 issues of Marvel’s classic and newer titles, delivered digitally through your desktop web browser and the Marvel Unlimited mobile app.

Video: TNTM ‘SpiderMan Far From Home’ review & reaction at Alamo Drafthouse

Spider-man Far From Home is the much anticipated sequel to Homecoming. This is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie since Avengers Endgame tied up the past decade in a pretty little bow. Far From Home did not disappoint.

It was a bit of a different take on the character of Mysterio, but we can live with that. Gyllenhaal did a fantastic job of bringing Mysterio to life.

Tom Holland was great as Peter Parker again. He plays the naive, wet behind the ears young Peter Parker to a tee.

You don’t have to take our word for it. The audience overwhelmingly enjoyed the movie. Just watch the video and see for yourselves.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.

Vlog+Story: TNTM on House of X, Powers of X preview

I posted yesterday about the upcoming X-men story-line that is supposed to bring the mutants back into prominence in the comics.  Jonathan Hickman draws upon the old X-men stories to bring us House of X and Powers of X (pronounced ten).

Yes, I know it is strange to say one as “X” and the other as “ten”, but Hickman has promised the reasoning will become apparent when the story unfolds.

I am kinda anxious for this story as they are promising we will see lots of the old mutants as main characters or at least in cameos.  There are some really interesting X-men we haven’t seen for a while.  Kinda makes you wonder if some of the characters that are presumed dead will be returning.  I only hope this X-men series delivers on all the hype they are building for the story-line.

The video below explains a little bit about what they are planning to do with our Merry Band of Mutants.

Press Release

Marvel Comics is proud to present House of X and Powers of X! These two intertwining series form an all-new redefining event for the X-Men. In this all-new trailer, learn about these earth-shaking issues from Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, Senior Editor Jordan D. White, and writer Jonathan Hickman!

“House of X and Powers of X are two stories that act as one story. They absolutely are separate, but by the end they collide together and coming out of that is the new paradigm for the X-Men universe,” explains Hickman.

In this epic story starring almost every single mutant in the Marvel Universe, Jonathan Hickman takes the reins of the X-Men and will revolutionize everything you know about mutants. Shocking secrets will be revealed throughout Marvel history that will affect every member of mutantkind, especially the X-Men. Follow this incredible story and witness the most important scene in X-Men history!

“If you have been a fan of X-Men in any era, there is something in here for you,” promises White.

House of X #1 arrives on July 24th and Powers of X #1 arrives on July 31st in comic shops, on the Marvel Comics App, and on Marvel.com!

Video+Story: Captain Marvel review, audience reaction at Alamo Drafthouse

Fans of Marvel Comics MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) have been waiting for this Captain Marvel movie ever since the end credits of Avengers: Infinity War. When Nick Fury pulled out that paging device that displayed Captain Marvel’s symbol the internet went crazy with fan theories.

Fan theories and speculation are what helps ease the anticipation until the next movie, so that is not a bad thing.

There was a lot of hype building up to Captain Marvel. The MCU had been taking heat for it’s lack of screen time for it’s female characters. DC proved there is enough demand for a strong female lead character when Wonder Woman did so well at the box office. Some backlash about Brie Larson’s comments caused a huge online down-vote campaign against the movie. The audience rating on Rotten Tomato and the User rating on IMDB were both very low before the movie had even aired at one theater.

Thankfully the movie going audience actually showed up to watch the highly anticipated film. Captain Marvel pulled in $20.7M on Thursday preview night, $62M Friday and is on pace for a $160M opening weekend. That is good enough to put it third for the month of March after Beauty and the Beast ($174.7M) and Batman v. Superman ($166M).

Patrick and I really enjoyed Captain Marvel. There are lots of little references and cameos sprinkled throughout the movie. The most heartfelt is what is likely the last time Stan Lee will make his famous cameo. There is also a very touching homage to Stan Lee at the beginning of the movie. It is a nice gesture to thank the man who was without question the ambassador for comic books, regardless of the publisher.

You don’t need to take our word for how good the movie is. We asked members of the audience their thoughts on Captain Marvel. Everyone we talked to both on and off camera gave praise to the newest entry into the MCU.

We are predicting a surge in Captain Marvel costumes at comic cons and especially during Halloween this year! If you haven’t seen Captain Marvel yet, we highly recommend it. If you have watched it, let us know what your favorite part of the movie is in the comments.

Video: TNTM – Our Favorite New TV Shows

There are a ton of great TV series out now on broadcast TV, cable, and streaming services. The only problem is there isn’t enough time to watch them all.

Netflix and Disney are leading the way with their original shows on their streaming services. Disney is pushing out some Star Wars and DC Comics titles that are really looking good.

Netflix is still leading the way with their Marvel Comics related shows, even with the cancellation of Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

What TV shows are you watching that we didn’t mention. Let us know in the comments so we can add them to our DVR.

Video+Story: Chris Evans Retiring as Captain America

It looks like Chris Evans is hanging up the shield for good and will be leaving his role as Captain America after Avengers 4. He has portrayed this iconic Marvel Comics character for 10 films.

Ever since the first Captain America film in 2011, Chris Evans has been synonymous with the character. He will leave big shoes to fill.

The speculation on him leaving the role stems from a tweet he made.

“Officially wrapped on Avengers 4. It was an emotional day to say the least. Playing this role over the last 8 years has been an honor. To everyone in front of the camera, behind the camera, and in the audience, thank you for the memories! Eternally grateful. ”

It looks like he is ready to move on to other roles. His portrayal of Cap was spot-on. He not only had the appearance, but the mannerisms and demeanor. His tweet was heartfelt and appreciative.

We hope Chris Evans has a long and successful career. He will always be Steve Rogers in our eyes.

Video+Story: Venom Movie Review

Venom is one of the more iconic and loved Spiderman villains. When it was announced Venom would be getting his own movie, fanboys world-wide rejoiced.

Then it was announced Spiderman would not be mentioned at all in the movie. Also, no symbol would appear on his chest. At this point I started to get worried. How can you have a Venom movie with absolutely no connection to Spiderman.

I still held out hope the movie would be well written and faithful to the character. Shortly into the movie, my hopes were dashed.

The origin of how and why Venom (and the other symbiotes) came to Earth was completely changed. I can get past that. They also based it in San Francisco. OK, Eddie Brock did spend some time in San Fran. I was getting tired of New York based super hero movies anyway. They also changed Venom’s personality and demeanor.

That is where I lost connection.

Venom is not a humorous character. It felt like Sony tried to steal a page out of Marvel’s book. They wanted to mix action and humor to get a blockbuster movie. I have no issues with that, but I feel Venom was not the character to drive the humor. It felt to me like the only thing related to Venom in the movie, was the title.

Talking to other audience members, I found I was in the minority on those views. I think if you watch Venom with no prior knowledge of the character, you will probably like the movie. If you go into the movie expecting to see a version of Venom similar to the comic books…. you might be disappointed.

I am usually able to suppress the fanboy in me and watch the movie objectively. I was not able to do that with Venom as they departed so drastically from the Venom I know from the comics. The movie is still on pace to break box office records for an October release. That along with the fact that the audience members we got reviews from all seemed to enjoy the movie, tells me Sony will likely go forward with their other Spiderman related movies.

I am crossing my fingers that Morbius doesn’t stray too far from the source material.

Video: Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe

Netflix has done a bang-up job bringing the Marvel characters to prominence on their streaming service. They took some of the lower tier characters and made them household names.

It all started with Daredevil. Daredevil on Netflix was absolutely amazing. That series opened the door for all the follow-ons. Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Punisher, and the big team up of Defenders.

Even the lowest rated of the Netflix Marvel series are better than a lot of the movies. Still haven’t watched all of Iron Fist season 2 yet, but it is on the list. I actually enjoyed Iron Fist season 1 so this season should be a marked improvement.

What do you think about the Netflix Marvel series? Let us know in the comments below.
