Charles Soule & John Timms Deliver a New Spin on The Inhumans for SECRET WARS!


New York, NY—January 29th, 2014— There’s a rebellion brewing on Battleworld. Stretching far and wide into every dominion across the strange, patchwork realm, underground revolutionaries prepare for the uprising. Today, Marvel is pleased to announce INHUMANS: ATTILAN RISING #1, a new Secret Wars series from New York Times Bestselling writer Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman) and artist John Timms (Nova, Harley Quinn)!


Medusa, ruler of Attilan and Queen of the Inhumans, has been tasked with rooting out the rebels, and crushing their resistance beneath her steely tendrils of hair. Yet a chance encounter with the head of the insurgency will change everything. A man named – BLACK BOLT! And things are about to get complicated.


“One of the ideas behind Inhumans: Attilan Rising from the start was to put Medusa, Black Bolt, Reader, Iso and other characters from Inhuman into a new context,” says Charles Soule, in an interview with “That’s part of the fun of an event like Secret Wars. Things don’t have to be the way we’re used to seeing them.”


“My initial concept was ‘life during wartime’,” continued Soule. “The relationships we’re used to seeing will be different in this story. Huge drama, spies, glamour, action, betrayal, sabotage. My hope is that it won’t feel like anything else out there.”


The drums of war beat for the Inhuman nation. But when the dust clears, who will rise? Find out as BATTLEWORLD comes to the Inhumans in INHUMANS: ATTILAN RISING #1 this May!

The LAST DAYS Begin This May! @Marvel

'Loki: Agent of Asgard', 'Magneto' & 'Captain America & The Mighty Avengers' Begin Their LAST DAYS Story Arcs!


New York, NY—January 28th, 2015— The skies fracture. The ground trembles. The end of all they know is coming. Heroes, Gods of Mischief and Masters of Magnetism who have faced annihilation more times than they could count and walked away. Only this time, there is no walking away. Today, Marvel is pleased to present the first issues of three blockbuster LAST DAYS stories, leading in to the highly-anticipated Secret Wars. Beginning in May, be there as your favorite Marvel heroes face their final hours, and the obliteration of the Marvel Universe!


First, Al Ewing and Luke Ross bring you a story of the people who faced the end of the world together, shoulder to shoulder in the face of destruction in CAPTAIN AMERICA & THE MIGHTY AVENGERS #8. Some of them wore costumes, and some of them didn’t. Some of them had super-human powers, and all some had were each other. Yet they were all Mighty Avengers in the end. And this is how they spent their last day.


Then, ask yourself – what will your legacy be when it’s all over? Cullen Bunn and Javi Fernandez have the answers in MAGNETO #18. The Mutant Master of Magnetism has learned his time is all but spent. A life of struggle and torment brought to a cataclysmic end at the destruction of all things. With everything he’s fought for his whole life brought to its unavoidable ending, how will he cope? Will he celebrate his legacy – or be tormented by it?


Finally, the end of the Marvel Universe extends into Asgard and beyond as all the Ten Realms face their final hours in LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD #14. Al Ewing and Lee Garbett bring you the curtain call of the God of Mischief. Ancient enemies march on Asgardia seeking their final vengeance – including King Loki, meaner, madder and more dangerous than before. Where is our Loki? What tragedy has befallen him, here at the end?


Before Secret Wars can begin, the Marvel Universe must end. And it all starts this May as the LAST DAYS story arcs begin in Captain America & the Mighty Avengers #8Loki: Agent of Asgard #14, and Magneto #18!

The Flash: ‘The Sound and the Fury’ Review

All meta-humans living beneath the sun, that creep, fly or fast they run, will come after me as you never saw.  The Flash will chase after with the precision of a sniper, for people can call me the Pied Piper!
That’s right kids!  The Pied Piper has shown up to Central City to flush out the Flash and take his revenge on Harrison Wells.  As we have been led to believe, Wells is the Reverse Flash.  We had definite confirmation tonight as we saw him amp up the reverse super speed to escape his old prodigy turned villain’s trap of raining glass at the Wells homestead.  We also learn that his use of the wheelchair is not a complete lie.  It seems his ability to walk at times as well as his bursts of super speed is limited.  Why does Harrison Wells need the tachyon device?  What really has happened to him to leave him broken?
Wells easily figures out that his old number one, Harley Rathaway is behind the intrusion in his home.  Harrison reveals this to Barry and team.  Cisco and Caitlin were none too happy to learn that this former colleague and royal pain in the ass has returned into their lives.  Apparently when working together on building the super collider, he treated Caitlin as a stupid girl and Cisco as a lame engineer.  Hartley has information about Wells that no one else knows. Hartley was genius smart; he knew how to play Wells and the team. It is good seeing a villain that was above average in the smarts department. Hartley manipulated and played with the team’s tactics to his advantage. 
Wells admits to the crew that he has a secret as Hartley insinuates.  He reveals that Hartley had calculated and warned him that the super collider explosion was a distinct possibility.  Harrison covered this up by firing Hartley and extorting him into keeping his mouth shut.  The team does not take this well.  Caitlin is especially upset as she lost her fiancé in that explosion.
A side plot we had in this episode was Iris West being hired by a news organization she loves, only to discover she was only hired because of an assumed connection to the Flash due to her blog.  This was not a particularly compelling part of the episode, but hopefully will pay off down the road.
In the end, Hartley is captured and put away in the basement holding area at STAR labs.  Did anyone else notice the 52 sign?  Hartley taunts Cisco and tells him he will release him soon.  He reveals that he knows what happened to Ronnie Raymond and where he is hiding.  I have a feeling that this might be the origin point of Cisco becoming Vibe.  
As far as the theme of the vibration frequencies this episode, I wonder if we will see it again in some kind of Flash of Two Worlds story arc at some point.
This episode was pretty solid.  With the exception of the Iris plot, the episode was compelling and exciting.  I give it a 4.25 out of 5 stars.
