Yes, Ivys, since there’s a couple of them. Comic book characters do, indeed, change over time. Though it may seem that they don’t, they certainly grow and change, gaining and losing powers, joining and leaving teams, acquiring and leaving love interests. The World’s Finest set will ...

So I come across news stories all over. I’ve got an RSS feed reader. I check around Facebook. I go to a lot of different gaming company sites throughout the day. When I first saw the image associated with this story, my first thought was, “Man, Dr. Doom got some mad ups, yo!” Anyway...

While the next DC Comics movie coming out shows the often tenuous relationship between Batman and Superman, the two generally get along more than they fight. And when they’re together, well, they’re one of the strongest superhero pairs around, often referred to as the “World’s...

WizKids is showing off another mini from their upcoming Superman/Wonder Woman set for HeroClix. As I mentioned previously, I read more Marvel than I did DC, back when I read comics.

So, I’ve always been more of a Marvel-reader than DC. I got involved with X-Men and X-Factor pretty early on, and since then, though I no longer read comics, Marvel has always just been the one I’ve been more interested in. So when I see that there’s a Superman Red and Superman Blue...

Gamers often feel they need to be the first ones with the new toys on the block. I joke about it from time to time with pre-release announcements, but considering I’ve read more than my fair share of messages on Kickstarters that are, “But why did THEY get the game before I did!?!?!”...

One of the things that WizKids is doing with their new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set for HeroClix is, beyond just the common, uncommon, rare, super-rare, chase, and alternate figures, is randomly inserting pieces of the Hulkbuster MkII armor into booster packs. It’s like if you’ve ever gotte...

Not every hero in the comic book world needs to be a super-hero. They don’t have to have super strength, or super speed, or telekinetic powers, or the ability to control weather, or magnetism, or they don’t have to be able to turn into ice cream (yeah… comic books are weird). Someti...
