We Got Reviews: Action Comics #7-12

My previous O.M.A.C. love fest aside, I believe that the Grant Morrison Action Comics run is going to be one of a couple things that will convenience Dan Didio and Jim Lee that the New 52 was worth the experiment.

Dark Phoenix Rises…

Dark Phoenix Rises...

…I think.

Today Marvel released a teaser image for the final issue of AvsX (Avengers Vs. X-men) or (Civil War II). Featuring the Dark Phoenix in female form…with red hair. Is this the return of Jean Grey? You know how comics work, you die in a comic you will return, especially if your name is Phoenix because they rise and come back and such.

OOOOOORRRRRRR!? Is it Emma Frost consumed by the Phoenix force?

OOOOOORRRRRR!? is it Cyclops in a wig? The figure in the image does have glowing red eyes…just saying. Look for the 12th and final issue in October!

Holy Crap, there’s gonna be a S.H.E.I.L.D. Show…

Holy Crap, there's gonna be a S.H.E.I.L.D. Show...

I mean it makes sense right? Disney owns ABC and it also has the rights to many Marvel characters; its a stroke of genius to combine the two. What really seals the deal in my mind is the fact that Joss Whedon is going to be involved.

Now for some of you this is not exactly NEW news. However, I just found out what the name of that show will be: S.H.E.I.L.D.

And I just S.H.A.T. in my pants. This is truly incredible and as I mentioned earlier, a stroke of genius. Whedon has proven him self worthy in the TV realm, look at Buffy and Firefly. Now I understand that Buffy had a healthy 10 season lifespan where as Firefly lived to…10 episodes and a movie? But both shows were solid with quality content, production value and story.

Whedon will be rejoining his brother Jed and his wife Maurissa Tancharoen. Together they created Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and Dollhouse.

Perhaps this trio of writers will create a show that will bridge the gap between Avengers and Avengers 2? Maybe tie in or run parallel with Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: WInter Solider?

Either way this is exciting news for fans Whedon and Marvel. With Joss writing the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot and the Avengers 2 script you better believe these will be tight stories that will bring us 3 years of quality story telling.
