Those Mighty Muggs are pretty darn cool. I've been holding out on buying one of the Avengers ones (for reasons unknown even to me), but I definitely wanna pick one up before they disappear.

Also; can't wait for the Avengers Lego sets to come out. I haven't owned Legos in years, but they look awesome.

I love this cover so much. Mimics an old professional wrestling poster ad, and I love Namor's 'People's Eyebrow' and rassler-fist pose. Awesome.

I can't say I've been looking forward to AvX but I'm willing to give the main-line series, and more importantly THIS book, a chance. Let's do this!

IT'S BACK!

I find it hilarious the Polish Avengers trailer is like... 90% footage from Iron Man 2.

Gotta love that Danny Elfman Batman score.

And wooooah, voice acting? Weird.

Calling it 'Ninja Turtles' just makes it sound like some Chinese bootleg version of one of the various TMNT movies already out. It certainly does not give me more confidence in the film, as it means they're set on this whole 'the turtles are aliens' angle.

And look, I'm all for changing/updating the origin- hell the new TMNT books by IDW had a severely altered origin that was done really well, but making the turtles aliens just seems lazy and throws out any logic the existing franchise had.

Why would aliens know ninjutsu? Ninjutsu exists on other planets? If they're technologically advanced enough to arrive on Earth, why would they use weapons made of steel and wood? Is Splinter an alien, too? Does this alien planet they come from consist of beings that resemble anthropomorphic versions of Earth animals? Are they like Transformers in that they just took the appearance of Earth animals so as not to scare *HEAD ESPLODE*

I was really interested with the first Dark Avengers team, but I feel like doing this thing again is going back to the well one too many times.

I suppose only time will tell, but I'm getting a bit tired of villain and anti-hero teams.

DC: All-Star Superman

aaaaand, I'm not sure I've seen a Marvel animated feature to be honest. At least not one that I thought was good enough to mention.

I dunno... is Magneto an anti-villain in this case? Or is he just occasionally a villain and occasionally an anti-hero? I dunno, man.

Eeeeeh, as has been the case, I'm not terribly thrilled with Lee's costume design.

The character himself looks menacing enough, though, so I'll be interested to see what his deal is.
