Young super hero teams just work. They have a broad appeal and who doesn’t love the coming of age story. Look at some of the best comic book teams comprised of younger heroes. Teen Titans, Power Pack, New Mutants, Young Justice, Young Avengers you get the idea. With the recent reboot of the Marvel continuity it looks like they’re set to debut a team comprised of some of the newest and youngest members of the Marvel Universe.
Champions is the newest series debuting at Marvel. The book is being written by Mark Waid (Kingdom Come, Original Sin) and art by Humberto Ramos (Impulse, Runaways). Filling out the team will be the younger Cyclops/Scott Summers, Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, Sam Alexander/Nova, Miles Morales/Spider-Man, Amadeus Cho/The Hulk, and Viv Vision.
I like the fact that we have another team with a unique makeup and some of my current favorite characters, »

Over the last few weeks we’ve seen a vigorous discussion among people who create and/or love comics about the relationships and responsibilities of creators and fans. This is nothing new — fans have been demanding certain kinds of stories that authors don’t want to create at least since Conan Doyle was forced to bring Sherlock Holmes back from the dead — but the internet brings so many more people into the conversation.
And too many of these people on the internet don’t understand the difference between a discussion among people with different points of view and a unilateral demand for submission.
Now, I don’t read Cap. Nothing against him, just not my jam. Still, when I read a commentary from the Israeli newspaper, »

If you were worried that the fun colorful world of Shazam! was going to take a dark Batman V Superman turn, don't be. According to Dwayne Johnson's personal producer Hiram Garcia, this upcoming Dceu adventure will be a lot more colorful and fun than what else is being planned by Warner Bros. And perhaps it gets to slide out of the damp, dank rheum of the DC Comics Movie Universe for the sole fact that it is arriving from Warner Bros.'s sister studio New Line. Even though that is the case, Shazam! does fit into the current cinematic universe set up at Warner Bros.
Over the rest of this decade, there will be a number of DC Extended Universe movies infiltrating theaters. But only one of them stars The Rock. Though, Dwayne Johnson is taking on the role of villain Black Adam instead of the main hero. While »
ComicBook.com interviewed Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's producer, Hiram Garcia to talk about the status of “Shazam!” which Johnson will star in. Dany Garcia and Johnson formed the production company, Seven Bucks Productions, which has developed a variety of films and shows which includes the “Fast & Furious” films, New Line Cinema’s “San Andreas”, and the HBO series “Ballers.”
Garcia talked exclusively with ComicBook.com to give an update on the comic adaptation of “Shazam!” which will feature Johnson as the villain Black Adam opposite the superhero Captain Marvel. Garcia said:
"We're a good way into development. We're expecting a next draft soon which I think is really gonna put us in the zone that we're hoping for."

There are different themes and moods associated with each season that, aside from the weather, make them remarkably different from one another. Summer in particular is associated with vitality, energy, and joy, while winter, in contrast, is most linked to death, lethargy, and hopelessness. These seasonal moods extend to all aspects of pop culture like movies and music too. Albums like 808s and Heartbreak, Reflektor, and Led Zeppelin IV are clearly winter albums, while Some Girls, True Blue, and Californication are without question summer albums.
Even comic books reflect this trend as some are more fit for particular seasons or times of the day than others. Some comics like Daredevil and Batman are nighttime books, while Superman and Amazing Spider-Man are daytime books. Batman Red Rain should be read around Halloween, while The Ultimates and The Ultimates 2 are the comic book equivalent of summer blockbusters. Below is my list of »

One of the most exciting factors regarding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t just the first meeting of Batman and Superman in live action, but their first meeting with Wonder Woman as well. Earlier this week I recommended Trinity, a story about their interactions early on in each of their crime fighting careers. My next recommendation will fast forward several years in Mark Waid and Alex Ross’ fantastic Kingdom Come.
Much like The Dark Knight Returns, Superman has been retired for ten years due to a personal and philosophical loss, even retreating from any form of public life. His absence has led to a more violent breed of heroes, ones who are willing to kill and cause just as much damage and loss of life as the villains they face. After a terrible tragedy involving countless civilian deaths, »
