WPC — Geek Stuff From Every Angle

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “From Every Angle.”

As luck would have it, last week I got this month’s Loot Crate, and as is my wont, I took photos of what I got. Two particular items received shots from three angles.

Cee’s FFC — The Rule of Three (Items)

Hey, party people! It’s been a while since I made one of these, but when I read this week’s Fun Foto Challenge, I just had to do it.

My submission consists of a trio of Funko POP! bobbleheads.

I acquired Star-Lora and Groot from Disney Movie Rewards, and Winter Soldier came for the Marvel Shop site.

Marvel: “Future Past” and Present

Lots of interesting stuff this week!

With 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” now in theaters, Alonso — group editor of the X-books for years — shares his thoughts on what made Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s original 1981 story so significant to Marvel history. Alonso also sheds a bit of early insight into the upcoming Rick Remender-written event “AXIS,” which was officially announced this week via this month’s cover of “Previews.” Switching to the present, Alonso expresses enthusiasm for the original Nick Fury’s role in “Original Sin,” and details news from Marvel’s August 2014 solicitations, like Gerry Duggan taking on “Hulk” writing duties, “Sex Criminals” co-creator Chip Zdarsky making his Marvel debut, and the future of “Moon Knight.” Plus, your questions, straight from the CBR Community!

Marvel Vs. Godzilla!

For two years in the late 1970s, Marvel licensed the use of Godzilla for a comic book series. It was very popular, but soon became SO popular that Toho asked for a large license increase after the first year and an even larger increase after the second year and it just no longer made sense for Marvel fiscally, so they ended the series after 24 issues. For the most part, writer Doug Moench invented brand-new monsters for Godzilla to fight (as Toho required separate licensing fees for any of their other monsters) but throughout the series, SHIELD agents Dum Dum Dugan, Gabe Jones and Jimmy Woo pursued the monster and on occasion Godzilla faced off against Marvel heroes (including one created for the series). Here, then, are the five best fights between Marvel heroes and Godzilla!

Where There’s a Will…

The X-corner of the Marvel Universe is perhaps the one most densely populated by superpowered characters, and of its denizens, the most important is arguably Charles Xavier, better known as Professor X. While Charles may not be the most popular mutant in existence, he was the founder of the X-Men, a team he formed and taught in order to prove to the world that man and mutant could co-exist peacefully. Fighting for his dream meant Xavier had to make many sacrifices over the years, as well as keeping a number of secrets. During his life and continuing after his death, a number of those secrets, many of them painful, have come to light, and each time, Xavier and/or his X-Men have dealt with them together.

This July, when the X-Men founder’s secret last will and testament are uncovered in “Uncanny X-Men” #23, by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo, the team members that make up Professor X’s legacy find themselves having to decide how to interpret and act upon the secret document. Editor Mike Marts spoke with CBR about the issue, which kicks off the series’s tie-in to Marvel’s “Original Sin” event.
