The Marvel Multiverse has collapsed, the entirety of reality is in shambles, and none have been spared from the utter devastation that has brought the lives of our favorite Marvel characters to a halt…none, except for DOCTOR DOOM! In the beginning of the first issue of Secret Wars , we were shown glimpses of Doctor Doom conversing with an ethereal being, who I can only assume to be GOD. How do I come to this conclusion? Well the opening of issue 32 of this story starts off with a police force made up of Thors proclaiming they exist to serve as the bringers of justice under the rule of God, who is then revealed to be none other then Victor Von DOOM!

With the Star Wars Animated series “Rebels” reaching its season 1 finale, our friends at Marvel have decided to sate our need for more Rebels content in the intervening time until the season 2 premiere. While Kanan Jarrus may be a roguish rebel in the years leading up to the legendary battle of the Death Star, during the Clone Wars he went by a different name, Caleb Dume.

Caleb was a Jedi Padawan to Master Deppa Billaba and learned by her side on the front lines of the Clone Wars. The pair fought bravely together alongside their battalion of clone soldiers, fighting for the freedom of the Republic. This all changed on the fateful day when Lord Sidious executed Order 66, which forced all clone troopers to turn on their Jedi generals. What happened to Caleb that made him into the hardened soldier Kanan? That is what this story hopes to teach us.

Over the past year, Disney has set about releasing back stories in comic format for some of their most famous theme park attractions. They began with the MUSEUM OF THE WEIRD featured in the Haunted Mansion, and followed it up with a far better selling and more recognizable, FIGMENT. Figment is basically the mascot of Disney’s EPCOT park, and one of their most endearing mascots to boot. So how does one follow up easily the most recognized character in the series thus far? With one of the most exciting rides in all of Magic Kingdom!

Ultron, one of the most fearsome fearsome foes of the Marvel Universe makes his return THIS WEEK in a brand new graphic novel, chronicling the rise of PLANET ULTRON!

Just in time for the up-coming Avengers sequel, Rage of Ultron is an original graphic novel depicting an original story. This book combines two generations of Avenger teams, and brings them together, depicting an epic struggle to defeat Ultron and save TITAN, home planet of…THANOS?

If you plan to see the upcoming Avengers sequel, and want to learn more about the infamous AI Ultron, this new story is a great place to start.

“It was another glorious victory for the Mighty Avengers. Good triumphed over evil and Ultron was shot into space, never to be seen again. Or so they thought. Now, years later, the homicidal artificial intelligence – so long devoted to ending life on Earth – has a new world to conquer…one with its own horrific legacy. When Titan, birthplace of Thanos, falls, Planet Ultron rises in its place! Thanos’ brother Starfox must seek the aid of his former allies – but the Avengers he finds are radically different from the ones he once knew. Among them is Ultron’s creator Giant-Man – and when Hank Pym confronts his now planet-sized “son,” the responsibilities of fatherhood have never loomed so large.” -Marvel

With the Death Star destroyed and the Empire in shambles, Darth Vader is left in a precarious situation. After his primary space station was destroyed, along with the extensive fleet and military presence aboard the Death Star, what will he do to replace those lost soldiers? While the Empire is not one to mourn, it is one to count its losses and find a way to reform itself and find a way back to the top.

Over the past 2 issues we have seen glimpses of Vader’s hidden agenda as he attempts to re-strengthen his fleet and gain his vengeance against the rebels responsible for the Death Star’s destruction. In issue one, we watched as Darth contracted Boba Fett to find Han Solo’s Millenium Falcon, as well as Luke Skywalker. In issue two, he weeds out dissension in his ranks. Where does Vader go from there? He creates an army of unmistakably loyal soldiers! How? I’ll tell you how, right now!
