Comics can already be pretty weird on their own. But when you get into “What if…?” scenarios, it can get even stranger. In this case, it’s a look at what would happen if the Venom symbiote was attached to the Hulk, instead of Topher Grace… I mean, Spider Man and then Edd...

Where we are now is because of a long series of decisions, situations, and happenstance. But what if anything along the way had been different? How would things change? Well, in comics, you can actually change stuff around like that and see what might’ve happened. Like, what if Daredevil was an...

The new Wonder Woman set gets ever-closer to release for HeroClix. As always, the set includes characters from both the “good” and “bad” side of the law. In this case, it’s Cheetah. Because one Cat-Woman wasn’t enough for the DC universe (not to say Mervel doesn...

The Wonder Woman set for HeroClix will be coming out soon. In it, they’ll have more than just Wonder Woman. Though, with all the different versions characters go through in comics, I could see them coming out with a set of “just one character.” Anyway, one (well, two of the figures,...

One of the bigger announcements in comic books in the past year or so was the revelation that Captain America had always been a deep-cover Hydra agent this whole time. Spoilers: it’s not that they retconned all of Steve’s backstory from the beginning. It’s that Red Skull is having s...

WizKids is happy to announce that they’ve re-signed their licensing deal with CBS for Star Trek. Considering how big a property Star Trek is, that’s newsworthy in and of itself. But they’ve also posted up a list of new products they’re going to be coming out with that license....

Comics are filled with all sorts of colorful characters. The Porcupine is certainly among them. Looking at the costume, he’s giving me a sort of “Ultimate Warrior” vibe, but without the face paint. Anyway, the villain is coming to your HeroClix games in the Avengers/Defenders War se...

When you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m willing to say it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re thinking of Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While Star Lord may be the leader, and Drax and Gamora certainly have their parts to play, the dynamic duo of a talking (kind of) tree and murde...

The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he’s got an arrow that he can control… psychically? Magically? I don’t honestly know. But you don’t want to get hit by it, th...

One thing you’d expect to get in a set called Deadpool & X-Force is at least one Deadpool miniature. You might even expect two or three. Well… never let it be known that WizKids doesn’t name their sets appropriately, as this set is creaking at the seams with Deadpools, of which...

Just about everyone in the Marvel universe has had a Deadpool parody of them at some point, it seems. In this instance, it’s the Hulk that gets the Deadpool makeover. I have to admit, not having read comics for almost 2 decades now, I don’t quite know the circumstances that Wade ended up ...

Comics are weird. I mean, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is already pretty weird, just starting out. It’s sort of right there in the name. Well, the comics got weirder from there, including all manner of odd characters. In this case, we’re talking about Mini Shredder. Yeah, Austin Powers ce...

The previews are coming hot and heavy for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases from WizKids. Both Dice Masters and HeroClix are getting sets, and that means plenty of characters in various forms. The one for HeroClix today is a bit of a mouthful to say. Take a look at Savanti Alfonso Ju...

While comics take place in a world much like ours (except where you can have giant aliens and robots and such, of course), they’re usually a step apart and you don’t get too many real-world crossovers. Well, back in 1978, DC brought boxer Muhammad Ali to their pages where he sparred again...
