Pull Box: June 5

The issue that all of us really needed, to be honest. A nice, long, exposition-filled issue that broke down everything we had learned up to this point and revealed just how far Bane had gone in his machinations against Batman. That Thomas Wayne was giving the exposition was a bit expected, but we still don’t know why he truly sided with Bane in all of this. Or even how he got here for that matter. With King out in 13 issues, we should certainly learn more, soon.

That was a million times better than the first issue of DCeased. A technological-biological hybrid virus corrupting the planet. Batman outwitting just long enough to learn the truth, and Dinah Lance is the new Green Lantern after killing an infected Hal Jordan. That’s insane! This is quickly becoming yet another awesome alternate-future story for the heroes, and I love it.

The Year of the Villain has officially begun! DC has so many incredible stories going at once right now, it’s mind-boggling. The World Forger is a member of the League now, shockingly, with the goal of finding his brothers, the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor, which is an amazing twist if they’ll join up. But, Luthor is making his own moves and has the world in quite a predicament with the villains about to be armed to the teeth. Ahhh it’s so good!

This upended the status quo quite a bit for the Shazam Family. Sivana defeated Black Adam and waits at the Rock of Eternity. Billy’s adopted family now knows the truth, while his Dad waits outside. Now, the Wizard, Shazam, has returned to rescue the children from the Magiclands, while Funland prepares to go to war with the Earthlands. That’s a doozy of an issue, for sure.

Another fun, throwback romp to the glory days of Green Lantern and Green Arrow’s classic team-up. Though the addition of Grant Morrison certainly made this one a little strange and memorable. Using Dimension Zero was certainly a fun way to put these two back together. Now, Sinestro is back in the mix, as well, which should give Hal his much-needed adversary in this crazy story.

I knew the Gemworld couldn’t be trusted, and when Young Justice inevitably finds their way back there, hell will most certainly be paid. It was great seeing the team back together, recounting what’s happened up to this point for them and getting us all up to speed, the taking down Opal with very little trouble. I’m genuinely curious as to what Jinny Hex is hauling around in her truck, though.

The latest issue in Marvel’s best event in years was yet another win for the once-named “House of Ideas.” It’s been such a long time since such a great event came from Marvel, it’s refreshing to see this continuing to fire on all cylinders. Thor has nailed himself to Yggdrasil, just as Odin did before him, hoping to stop Malekith once and for all, while the Avengers fight back against the forces of evil. All of these cool changes to characters, as well as interesting “Ten Realm” related roles has even been a lot of fun.

First Trailer for Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Entertainment has followed up this crazy week of Avengers: Infinity War coverage with the first official trailer for one of the most anticipated films in cinematic history. Infinity War brings together our heroes from across the galaxy, with many of them interacting for the first time to combat the intergalactic threat of universal destruction at the hands of Thanos.

It’s an epic trailer that just barely seems to touch on anything in the film. It even holds back on Marvel’s usual depth of key scenes to draw the viewer in, knowing full well that everyone on the planet plans to see it in theaters.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Dropping Tomorrow

Marvel Entertainment dropped a massive bombshell to continue the week of coverage and excitement for Avengers: Infinity War with the announcement that the first trailer for the film will be debuting tomorrow.

The announcement alongside a goosebump-inducing video featuring key scenes and trailer reactions throughout the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If this is any indication, then the MCU is going to be pretty emotional for many fans the next two years.
