Today in the US, Fox and Marvel begin a new saga set in a TV-friendly offshoot of the X-Men universe with The Gifted, a show about a young family on the run from a government seeking to capture and control America's Mutant population. Not sure what's happening, who's who, and why no one's running around in Spandex yelling "To me, my X-Men!"? We're here to help.
The Gifted, Fox's upcoming X-Men TV spinoff, is more spiritually related to the mutant movie franchise than it is narratively. This world isn't meant to explicitly connect to any of the X-Men movies, but when it comes to Polaris, there's going to be at least one major similarity to her comic-book self.
Video: One of the oddest things about watching ABC's Inhumans series is trying to shake the feeling that, in some alternate universe, it's probably a good show. All of the necessary components of a good story are there, but it feels like neither ABC nor Marvel really knew how to put them all together.
Today, Netflix finally dropped the first full-length trailer for its upcoming Punisher series and though it was rather light on plot details, it presented a very clear idea of what kind of show we're in for: one presenting Marvel's most dangerous vigilante at his most vicious and deadly, but without Netflix's other Marvel heroes to stop him if he needs to be put down.

Image Cache: Russell Dauterman's work alongside colorist Matthew Wilson makes The Mighty Thor one of the most sumptuous-looking comics on store shelves right now. So when Empire Magazine got Dauterman to draw them a Thor vs. Hela cover for its latest issue, the artist produced something that truly can only be described as Thor-some.
You remember the tag lines, even if you think you don't. "Ooooooh, somebody stop me!" Or perhaps, "SSSSSSSSSMOKIN'!" Or even, "Hold on, Sugar! Daddy's got a sweet tooth tonight!" OK, maybe not that last one, but if you've got the time to rewatch The Mask, do it. It's dated. It's goofy. And boy, is it fun.
There's a moment in the newest Thor: Ragnarok trailer that suggests something fascinating about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As Hela gleefully chokes the life out Thor, she takes a moment to remind him just who and what she is. She is not a queen. She is not a monster. She is the goddess of death.
When the Runaways, Marvel's group of specially-gifted children who run away from home after discovering that their parents are part of a supervillain cult, return in a new series this fall, writer Rainbow Rowell wants to make sure that you know exactly how to get into the series and have a good time.
