Thor

Thor The Dark World was touched by Whedon

According to Alan Taylor director of the new Thor movie, Joss Whedon was "airlifted in" like some kind of comicdom SWAT team to rewrite a few scenes that "weren't working". Joss is kind of like a comic book geek senator. He gets in there and makes sure our geekiest interests are represented. Plus he's got the writing chops to make sure it also doesn't, you know, plain suck for everyone else. And thank god for that.

The Villain in Avengers 2: Who Is Ultron?

Avengers Age of Ultron

Welcome to Ultron 101, a brief history of one of the Avengers' deadliest enemies.
By now you've heard that James Spader has been cast as Ultron in the Avengers sequel due out in 2015. But if you're new to comics - maybe you got into them because the movies intrigued you - or maybe you're not a big comics fan and your knowledge of the core material doesn't spread beyond the movies - then you may have found yourself sitting idly by while all your nerdier friends were "How cool is this!"-ing last week when the news broke.

So who is Ultron? Or more accurately, what is Ultron? Read more »

The Asgardian Wars: X-Men Plus Thor Equals Sexiness

X-Men The Asgardian Wars

With the second Thor movie coming out in a few months I highly recommend The Asgardian Wars.

Here's the catch. Thor isn't in this book. This book collects a few issues that came out more years ago then I care to admit. It tells the story of Loki at first trying to be a some what benevolent god. Endowing powers to certain people to help them make the world better. So he looks good and can gain a seat with "those who sit in shadow". The powers involved members of Alpha Flight and X-Men. This being Loki, chaos ensues.

The second Part of the book once again stars Loki. This time this is him taking what he wants. Namely Storm! This send the collected might of the New Mutants and the X-Men trying to rescue her and keep themselves alive in the process.

Why would I recommend a book that doesn't have Thor prior to the release of his movie? This book wonderfully shows the large world of Asgard and the realms that make it up. From the elves and Trolls even to the dwarves. Adam would love it!!

Buy The Asgardian Wars hardcover or paperback on Amazon. Read more »

Pete's Basement Season 6, Episode 16 - 4.15.13

It's Old Home Week as Adam joins Pete, Steve, and Ramon for a classic Pete's Basement roundtable! The boys have a hard time coming to grips with The Hard Master, as well as any sort of plot from Age of Ultron!

Pete's Basement Season 5, Episode 45 - 11.20.12

Something is different about this episode. I can't quite figure it out. Same crew. Same old scotch-drinking host. Same bewilderment about the career of Rob Liefeld. Maybe I'm going crazy. What do you think, folks?

Pete's Basement Season 4, Episode 49- 12.06.11

Back at the table again after the drunken mess from two weeks ago, and the much needed week off last week. A bunch of comics get reviewed, jokes are cracked, contests are announced, and somewhere an electronic fart machine squeals into the night.
