Past Meets Present – Your First Look at AVENGERS #25!

 
Past Meets Present – Your First Look at AVENGERS #25!

They have come from a different place and time – and today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at AVENGERS #25, from blockbuster creators Jonathan Hickman and Salvador Larroca. United against threats no single super hero could withstand – the Avengers have faced dangers unlike any other. But what happens when the danger is themselves? From the splintered fringes of time comes….the Avengers?! And the heroes of the past must face the horrors their present has wrought.

“After wrapping up INFINITY, Jonathan and I were pretty tired. Too tired to come up with anything new,” says Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “That whole All-New X-Men thing with the X-Men from the past has been working out pretty well for Brian Bendis, so we thought we’d jump on the bandwagon. Hence, the All-New Avengers! Sounds like the sort of thing that we’d do, doesn’t it?

”Past and present collide this January in AVENGERS #25. But when the dust settles, will there be a present worth fighting for? Not everyone makes it out alive!

A Parent's Guide to Batman: Whats Appropriate and What's Not!





Hey Geeks!  Matt MacNabb here, and as many of you know I run a major Batman website and have for the past decade.  One of the big things I encounter in a franchise like Batman that has been around for so long is varying levels of age appropriateness, so I put together a quick Parent's Guide to Batman to help you field what you may or may not want your kids exposed to.  A cartoon isn't always for kids, as proven by The Dark Knight Returns.  Go check it out on Legions of Gotham...CLICK HERE.
