Weapons Of Mutant Destruction Is What That Hulk/Wolverine Hybrid Image Was Teasing

A few weeks back, Marvel dropped a mysterious image depicting a Hulk/Wolverine hybrid that caused fans and journalists alike to speculate what the nature of it was and if it could possibly be tying into any of the upcoming X-Men books. Well, today we know that to partially be true as the House of Ideas have officially pulled back the curtain on Weapons of Mutants Destruction.

Here’s the skinny: This June, Marvel will launch a six-issue crossover involving Totally Awesome Hulk and Weapon X. As usual, a story of this nature will kickoff with an oversized one-shot, in this case, Weapons of Mutant Destruction Alpha. Set to be written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Mahmud Asrar, it’s probably safe to say that no True Believer will want to miss this one.

Before we proceed any further, let’s check out the synopsis Marvel has provided:

Adele Apologizes for Dropping F-Bomb During George Michael Tribute at the GRAMMYs
It was a rollercoaster GRAMMYs night for Adele.

After the 28-year-old songstress dropped an F-bomb after restarting her George Michael tribute earlier in the evening, Adele took the stage to accept the Song of the Year Grammy for her megahit, “Hello.”

The British singer took the opportunity to address the snafu, which had her in tears at the end of her powerful performance of Michael’s 1996 song, “Fastlove.”

“First of all, I really do apologize for swearing,” Adele said when she first approached the mic during her acceptance speech. “George Michael, I love him. It means a lot to me. I’m sorry if I really offended anyone anywhere.”

Adele was noticeably nervous about continuing her acceptance speech, thanking everyone who has been a part of her journey before pausing and admitting the moment was a bit too much for her to bear.

When military police officer Ken Mica arrived at Jeffrey MacDonald’s Fort Bragg, North Carolina apartment on Feb. 17, 1970, he saw MacDonald in the master bedroom, lying on his stomach next to his bloodied wife, Colette.

Hot Rumor: Here's The Lowdown On The Villains In Spider-man: Homecoming!

  • LRM Online
It was just yesterday that I was waxing nostalgic about the relationship Lrm has built with the character of Spider-Man over the years, and how interwoven our history has been with his cinematic exploits. Today I woke up to some interesting news that I just had to share with you all, and it's about Spider-Man: Homecoming. So strap yourselves in, boys and girls, we're about to talk a bit about the villains from the upcoming Marvel/Sony reboot.

For some time now, there's been lots of speculation about the antagonists in Spider-Man: Homecoming. We've heard The Vulture be confirmed, we've seen spy pics and heard rumors of Shocker, and there have been other unsubstantiated rumors that aren't worth discussing. A new rumor making the rounds, though, is that there will indeed be another baddie in Spider-Man: Homecoming. And it actually makes a ton of sense.

Exclusive Q&A with Delta Green Writer/Editor Shane Ivey

Some believe it’s based on a terrifying truth, while others harbor the hope that it’s purely fiction, but what many can agree on is that for years the Delta Green role-playing game universe has offered endless hours of eerie entertainment. With a new wave of Delta Green projects now underway, Daily Dead recently caught up with Arc Dream Publishing co-founder and lead Delta Green editor Shane Ivey, who discussed the new RPG and much more in our latest (and in this case, Lovecraftian) Q&A feature.

Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Shane. For those that are unfamiliar, can you talk a little bit about Delta Green and its Lovecraftian history?

Shane Ivey: Delta Green was a secret unit that conducted psychological operations for the Office of Strategic Services in World War II. It was disbanded with the rest of the Oss after the war.

10 Most Emotionally Devastating Movie Moments Of 2015

20th Century Fox

2015 was a great year for people who like to cry at the movies. The weepier among us were given ample opportunity to let the tears flow like a soft, traumatic rain. And it wasn’t just the obvious dramas that overwhelmed our emotions and caused us to leave the theater feeling like we’d just witnessed Old Yeller being shot by the ghost of Bambi’s mother.

In fact, some of the hardest gut punches came from movies we least expected. You’ll find that many of the dude-baiting, balls-to-the-wall action movies from 2015 snuck in a few devastating blows to the heart parts as well.

Granted, there was no Beaches or Green Mile level heartbreak, but hey, those moments don’t exactly come around every day. And anyone who watched even half of the movies listed below is likely a changed person. Or at the very least,

New 'Hulk' Revealed, Will We See Him in a Marvel Movie?

  • MovieWeb
Back in June, Marvel Comics announced that they will be rebooting all of their beloved comic book characters with an initiative known as All-New, All-Different Marvel, which will start after the Secret Wars comics series wraps up. Marvel has already announced some of these new changes, with Jane Foster taking over as the new Thor, Hawkeye becoming an old man, and Captain Marvel joining The Avengers. With somewhere between 55 and 60 new titles launching, there is still much left to be revealed about this new initiative, and today we have word on who will become the new Hulk. Entertainment Weekly revealed today that the new Hulk will be none other than popular Asian-American character Amadeus Cho, along with our first look at the character.

Marvel announces The Totally Awesome Hulk

He’s no longer just incredible – he’s totally awesome! Marvel Entertainment has announced that Greg Pak and Frank Cho are teaming up for The Totally Awesome Hulk, a new ongoing series that will take place in the ‘All New, All Different’ Marvel Universe and see a different character taking on the persona of the Green Goliath – although they’re keeping their identity under wraps for the time being…

“The new Hulk absolutely loves being the Hulk and that might create monumental problems for him and all the heroes and villains he comes into contact with,” Pak tells Comic Book, with Cho adding that: “There will be no mystery about the Hulk’s identity once the book hits — you’ll find out who the new Hulk is on page one. And it will indeed be totally awesome, and it will fuel everything that happens in the story. But there will

Possible Spoilers: Has The Identity Of Marvel's New Hulk Been Revealed?

We were told that the character chosen to be the new Hulk would cause a bit of controversy, and if the following is true then that may be an understatement. Many guessed that since Jane Foster now wields the hammer of Thor, that it might be Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk that'd take up the mantle of the Green Goliath, and Bleeding Cool got a reader's tip that it'd be the psychopathic Ultimate version of Reed Richards, but Talking Comic Books claims to have the answer. According to them the new Hulk will be none other than Amadeus Cho. This super-genius, also known as Mastermind Excello, is said to be the seventh (or eight, or tenth, depending on who you ask) most intelligent character in the Marvel Universe, and has been an ally of The Hulk's for years. He was co-created by Greg Pak, who is believed to be heading up the

White Bird in a Blizzard review: Shailene Woodley spreads her wings

Director: Gregg Araki; Screenwriter: Gregg Araki; Starring: Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane; Running time: 91 mins; Certificate: 15

Shailene Woodley's star continues to rise on a sharp upward trajectory thanks to The Descendants and the Divergent/Insurgent franchise and it may be because she seems wise beyond her years, bringing with her a kind of soulful ennui with the world. Casting her in this adaptation of Scott Heim's novel is also a clever move by writer/director Greg Araki, but the film is ill-judged in various other aspects.

Araki is particularly fascinated by extreme growing pains, with credits including The Doom Generation (1995) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt drama Mysterious Skin (2004) and at the heart of this story is the tragedy of abandonment. Kat Connors (Woodley) is just getting to grips with her changing body – and the boy next door Phil (Shiloh Fernandez) is

Adam is to challenge the Conservatives' Mid Sussex MP Sir Nicholas Soames as an independent parliamentary candidate, The Argus reports.

She will also compete with Labour candidate Greg Mountain, Ukip's Tony Brothers, Green Miranda Diboll and Liberal Democrat Daisy Cooper for the seat.

The Asbestos Lady

Real name: Victoria Murdock

The Asbestos Lady was a gifted scientist who became famous by designing a flameproof costume from asbestos. She also used a flame-thrower and guns that fired asbestos-lined bullets. What's so ironic and funny about this is the fact that the Asbestos Lady fell victim to being exposed to the harmful carcinogenic fiber for so long. She eventually got cancer from asbestos poisoning and is believed to have succumbed to the disease. I'm not saying cancer is funny, but the
