Post Avengers Infinity War Spec
Now that the buzz surrounding Avengers Infinity War has cooled down some, I figure now would be as good a time as any to talk some issues to keep an eye on. No movie is without flaws, and this one certainly had its fair share, but I personally loved it, and believe what Marvel/Disney pulled off is one of be most impressive achievements in cinematic history. That being said, the end of the film left us with a handful of questions, but even better left us comic buyers with some quick flip books!
Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel aka Captain Marvel
First appearing in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 as Carol Danvers, if you weren’t speculating on her years ago, then you missed out, because her books are hitting all time highs. She first becomes Ms. Marvel in Ms. Marvel #1 and becomes Captain Marvel in Avenging Spider-Man #9. She joins the Avengers in Avengers #183 and first appears as Binary in Uncanny X-Men #164.
In West Coast Avengers #45 Vision first appears in his white colorless form. If they decide to resurrect him, he will almost certainly be the colorless form, as the color was sucked out of him when Thanos ripped the mind stone out of his head. They’ve spent two movies now focusing on the love interest between Vis and Scarlett Witch, and it would be a good idea if he comes back, to have him be completely numb to the notion of feelings.
It seems with every new movie, each characters costume gets a cool upgrade which is really great to see onscreen. They’ve showed a bunch of Iron Man armor, and Spider-Man has had a few costume changes. In the film we get to see the Stark Armor Iron Spider first appearing in Amazing Spider-Man #529, but don’t be shocked if we see more Spider-Man costumes in the future. Marvel has proved they can put anything from comic panels to the big screen, so keep your eyes out for Amazing Spider-Man #252 (as always), Amazing Spider-Man #365, Spider-Man Noir #1, Web of Spider-Man #117, and Sensational Spider-Man #0 to name a few.
Who comes next?
My buddy Ivys guess is Kang!!! And I trust this guy over most! First appearing in Fantastic Four #19 As Rama-Tut. And first appearing as Kang the Conquerer in Avengers #8. The prediction is that he is the BAD MAN after the mad titan.
Everything and anything Inhumans. If you’re not a collector who is a completionist, now is the time to unload all of the Inhumans garbage that Marvel was jamming down our throats. I was low on the Inhumans from the start (refer back to precious articles), but now that Disney has to decided to monopolize the world, and buying Fox was its next step in doing so, Marvel is now done with the Inhumans.
They’re bringing the Fantastic Four title back, they’re bringing Wolverine back, and they even have a Death of the Inhumans mini-series hitting the newsstands in July. Get rid of them now, and you’ll be glad that you did.
I hit the Flea Market over the weekend, and found some fun Silver Age DC stuff for $10 bucks. Nothing spectacular, but it was cool to see at 630 in the morning. The guy i bought them off of said he was cleaning out his cabin and found them in there. Unfortunately no Amazing Fantasy #15, but silver age books nonetheless.
