In 2018, Marvel Comics relaunched their comics with Fresh Start. Importantly, the comic changed the Legacy heroes and restored the classic heroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, HULK or Thor. With the relaunch, their origins were restored and the important marriage between Spider-Man and Mary Jane was resumed.
This week, the new Avengers comic releases. Today, we celebrate the Quantumania movie and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In our new sensation, we have The Best Sellers List. Here, we cover the best stories of a particular character in a comic or series, and how it made it a best-seller. In our new sensation for March, is Star Trek: Deep Space Nine—The Dog of War #4.

After the popular St. Patrick’s Day holiday, the sci-fi genre is very popular this month. Though a federal holiday, it seems consumers are enjoying the month as a way to escape our troubled economy and circumstances.
This month, 11 out of the Top 50 Kindle books have a sci-fi or similar HORROR and supernatural themes. Certainly, this surge shows their popularity has staying power in the Top 100 and comic lovers are enjoying the change of themes.
With recent Star Trek announcements, Star Trek #9 is at the top of March Best Sellers. One of the rare times this year an IDW series has claimed the number one spot.
At Marvel, interest for Jerry Duggan’s X-Men series has waned though X-Men: Unforgiven #1 makes it to the top 50. With less competition, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #140 series and The Last Ronin crack the top 10 at positions three and five.
3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin: Who is the Last Ronin? In a future, battle-ravaged New York City, a lone surviving Turtle embarks on a seemingly hopeless mission seeking justice for the family he lost. […]
6. Attack on Titan Vol. 1: In this post-apocalytpic sci-fi story, humanity has been devastated by the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. […]
7. Avengers: Beyond (2022-) #1 (of 5): Someone has been manipulating the Avengers for the past several months, altering the very fabric of reality in an attempt to prepare the planet for a threat that could destroy everything. […]
8. Action Comics (2016-) #1053: “No livin’ thing’s supposed to have power like this. No matter how blue your eyes are or how pretty your face is, you’re just as much a monster as me.” […]
In Ultimate Spider-Man #1, Brian Michael Bendis debuts the Ultimate Universe, an alternate universe with Marvel heroes of updated origin stories for a new audience. With Secret Wars (2015), the Ultimate Universe came to an end despite its overwheling popularity. Nevertheless, it has resurfaced since Venom became King in Black.
In Ultimate Spider-Man (2001) #6, Ultimate Spider-Man becomes a public hero. In the recent news, Daily Bugle Editor-in-Chief, J. J. Jonah Jameson celebrates Spider-Man’s heroism which is rare in the prime universe. Importantly, the events follow after the death of Uncle Ben and the rise of the Green Goblin.
DAZZLER MAKES HER FIRST APPEARANCE IN UNCANNY X-MEN #130
InUncanny X-Men (1979) #130, the pyrotechnic mutant named Dazzler makes her first appearance. In a classic issue by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, Cyclops, Phoenix and Nightcrawler are seeking out a mutant detected by Cerebro at a Manhattan dance club. Importantly, they cross paths with the Hellfire Club with important ramifications for Jean Grey.

Perhaps, one of the most popular X-Men series, X-Factor #1 debuted on 1986. In fact, Bob Layton laid the groundwork for the X-Men for years with the passing of the Mutant Registration Act. With an all new X-Men team posing as mercenaries, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel and Iceman secretly recruited mutants to continue Professor X‘s dream.
Before, writer Roy Thomas gave us the Squadron Sinister, the Avengers’ true rivals and a pastiche of the Justice League. In Avengers (1971) #85, the Squadron Supreme makes its appearance on Earth-712. In part wacky, and in part turbulent, the Squadron Supreme is the enemy of the Avengers. Really, there isn’t a better match-up than Thor vs Hyperion!

ALPHA FLIGHT MAKES ITS FIRST APPEARANCE IN UNCANNY X-MEN #120
InUncanny X-Men (1979) #120, the Canadian super-team called Alpha Flight makes its first appearance. In a classic issue by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, the Canadian government sends Vindicator, Shaman, Snowbird, Sasquatch and Aurora. Their mission is to capture Wolverine after the X-Men‘s latest battle in Japan against the Mandroids.
To begin, the X-Men have been captured in space by an alien giant insect-like race called the Brood for certainly gruesome reasons. Story-wise, “The Brood Saga” progresses quickly through dreams, flashbacks and moments of introspection for its true leader, Wolverine. When the animal-man is faced with a fight against evolution, he enters a berseker rage. Terribly, Wolverine must face the Brood alone or succumb to their ovoviviparous breeding.
In a sense, the storyline is a commentary on the popularity of SCI-FI movies such as Alien in the decade. As a critique, it is importantly a coming-of-age story about teenage years and coming to terms with a hostile world. Certainly, this was the turning point in X-Men continuity portraying them as outcasts and warriors. Moreover, the arc features the wondrous FIRST APPEARANCE of Captain Marvel as Binary.
Definitely, this story is essential reading and belongs in your X-Men collection.

In 1980, CBG Fan-winning writer Chris Claremont and legendary artist John Byrne collaborated on Days of Future Past. Brilliantly, the work is a masterful illustration of the X-Men, as the future of human evolution.
In an alternate future, the mutant population has been exterminated as well as the superhumans on Earth-811. On Halloween 1980, Senator Kelly, Charles Xavier and Moira McTaggert were assassinated by the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in Washington D.C. After, the Sentinel Program is re-activated to exterminate mutants. Now, it’s up to Kate Pryde, Storm, Colossus and Wolverine to change the past.
In some sense, the story reveals a last effort to time travel to alter the past and change the future. For its part, Byrne’s art captures the urgency of the moment. Though the subject matter is serious and dark, Byrne’s art features colorful panels and expressive faces.
To sum, what makes Days Of Future Past work is the heroism of its characters despite the dystopian trope. In addition, it was significant for the merging of Kate Pryde into the prime Marvel timeline and her founding membership of Excalibur. In addition, it has been adapted into the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Definitely, this storyline is a classic X-Men story. Indeed, fans of Chris Claremont will love the political intrigue as well as the advanced warfare.

In 10 Best X-Men Stories Of The 80s, David Harth ranks Dark Phoenix Saga as the best X-Men story of all-time. Though, it is the general consensus among critics, the saga has not received the impact on general audiences that the storylines at the top have had.
Certainly, Dark Phoenix Saga is the most important story and every X-Men storyline since then owes its popularity to the love story. In some respects, the X-Men became men and women in the duel against the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. At the same time, the storyline mired X-Men comics in excessive melodrama involving Scott Summers and his marriage to Jean Grey’s clone.
A few words about the art. For his part, John Byrne’s art is certainly at its best. In fact, the iconic cover of X-Men (1980) #136, created a popular sensation. And Byrne draws the characters’ physiques in distinctive designs and colors. Perhaps, one of the most beautifully-illustrated comics of all-time.
Definitely, the storyline is certainly a must-have for your comic collection, as a comic that appeared in the Hollywood movie plot for X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019), with a blend of adventure, action, drama and sci-fi themes.

In many respects, “Welcome To Mojoworld,” is the worst X-Men story of the 1980s. Importantly, the evil villain called Mojo first appears in Longshot (1985) #3. Perhaps, a transition to the 1990s’ more extreme but loose storytelling.
To sum, Mojo rules the Mojoverse, a realm where citizens are either forced to watch television or participate in violent battles. Really, a villain with base motivations. At Screenrant, the story makes the list of X-Men: The 10 Weirdest Comic Book Arcs.
On this list, this story arc is one of the worst X-Men story arcs.
New Mutants (2019) is a soft reboot of the young X-Men team. After House of X and Powers of X, the New Mutants settle on their new island home, the mutant nation of Krakoa. There, the original New Mutants meet: Wolfsbane, Karma, Mondo, Magik, Sunspot, Mirage, Cypher and Chamber.
In New Mutants (2019) #1, Sunspot tells Mirage about the Sextant or the six ages of mutants. Let’s explain.
THE FIRST AGE: APOCALYPSE IS THE FIRST MUTANT
Eternals (1976) #2 marks the FIRST APPEARANCE of the Celestials in Marvel continuity. The late Jack Kirby is their creator and is thought to have been inspired by Erich von Däniken and his ideas of giant space gods. Initially, it was thought that this race of space gods only created the Eternals and Deviants across the Marvel Universe. In reality, their experiments also led to the creation of mutants on Earth-616.
In addition, the Celestials are responsible for the creation of the mutant race of homo superior. Apocalypse is the first of the second generation of homo superior. Born a slave, he quickly rose to power in Egypt. When he found an alien ship he named the Sphinx, he made first telepathic contact with Eson the Searcher. Swearing allegiance to further evolution, he adopted the ship's technology to enhance himself and his powers.

SECOND-THIRD AGES: OMEGA/ALPHA-LEVEL MUTANTS TO THE X-MEN
In the 20th century, the Earth experienced the first Mutant Boom. In the 1920s, several well-known mutants were born such as Namor and Magneto. Importantly, there were Nazi experimentations on mutants during the Second World War. Magneto came to adulthood and soon became one of the world's first Omega-Level mutants with his mastery of magnetism. During that century, Professor Xavier was born during that same period. An Alpha-Level telepath, he committed himself to his dream of human-mutant coexistence. After the Korean War, he travelled the world. During an expedition to the Himalayas, Xavier met an alien named Lucifer that dropped a rock on his legs, damaging them. From there, he became paralyzed.
The late Stan Lee created the X-Men in the 1960s. Originally, it was due to large fan mails requesting that he break the solitary superhero trope with a super-team! Importantly, Lee gave his characters a similar condition by giving them mutant powers. When he tried to name them The Merry Mutants, Marvel disagreed due to popular misconceptions. In 1963, X-Men #1 was published with success! And Magneto featured as the team's first villain.

FOURTH-FIFTH AGES: HUMAN-MUTANT CONFLICTS AND THE SCHOOLS
The mutant population exploded and increased to millions. When humans became aware of them, tensions rose. Among the mutants, the X-Men fought to preserve the peace. On the other hand, Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants believed that mutants should impose their rule on humans. During that period, Dr. Bolivar Trask designed the X-Men's mortal enemy: the Sentinels! For decades, upgraded versions of these robots hunted and killed mutants.
To protect mutants and promote mutant-human coexistence, Professor Xavier founded the Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters. Over the years, other X-Men continued Professor X's dream such as the Jean Grey Institute For Higher Learning. At the same time, the struggle for recognition and politics derailed their mission. Over the decades, mutants remained persecuted. In the 2010s, writer Rick Remender and artist John Cassaday created the Uncanny Avengers after the success of AvX.
SIXTH AGE: MAGNETO DECLARES KRAKOA A MUTANT-NATION
In House of X (2019) #1, Jonathan Hickman ushers in the New Age of the X-Men. With the series on the decline for years, Hickman completely changes the status quo. Now, Magneto declares before the U.N. Council that the island Krakoa is a mutant nation. There, all mutants whether superhero or supervillain are living in coexistence while others are establishing colonies on Mars.
Drawn from Earth across the stars, the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes and villains are set against one another by the mysterious and all-powerful Beyonder — with the winner promised the ultimate prize! But as battle lines are drawn, new alliances forged and old enemies clash, one among them is not willing to settle for anything less than godhood. Can even the combined might of the Avengers, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men prevent Doctor Doom from becoming the most powerful being in the universe? Now, the greatest super hero war of all time is collected alongside an untold chapter of Thor’s time on Battleworld, Titania’s incredible origin, and “What If?” tales that offer very different endings to the Secret Wars!
Critically, Secret Wars Omnibus is the greatest Marvel comic of all-time. In fact, the company-wide crossover tells the story of the cosmic god Beyonder‘s orchestration of a battle royale between the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Avengers, Spider-Man vs the Wrecking Crew, Galactus, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Lizard, Doctor Octopus and Enchantress on Battleworld.
Together, writer Jim Shooter and artist Michael Zeck collaborate on the 12-issue comic. Really, the writing shines on the struggle between good and evil. Indeed, the art in the book is the brightest of the COPPER AGE of comics: panoramic, muscular and colorful.
Indeed, share this comic to fans of Comic-Con, Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Beyonder! And Doctor Doom!
To begin, Secret Wars Omnibus is the first company crossover in Marvel history. Indeed, it’s the greatest comic of all-time in terms of popularity, financial success and impact on continuity. In fact, Marvel Studios plans to adapt the comic in Phase 6 of its movies.
Really, the comic is perfect for all ages and its straightforward tale of good heroes against evil villains to entertain a cosmic god, will appeal to adults and children. Also, witness Doctor Doom’s great moment as he attempts to steal the Beyonder’s power!
The comic is good for your Marvel collection. You will definitely love Michael Zeck’s thin lines, the quick story-telling, and the colorful panels. This oversized omnibus brings together beautiful illustrations that bring the story to life.
This product has 8 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.5 out of 5.
The customer review said: “With this edition, all that has changed. The oversize format lets the illustrations breathe. The intense, full color scheme brings everything to life.”
There is 1 negative global rating. The negative review commented on the poor plot: “Corny dialogue (ok, let’s put the blame on the eighties), hundreds of characters, a really silly plot, stupid villains, dumb heroes… I strained throughout the pages of this monstruosity, and realized that, after all, it was no surprise that marvel kept doing these horrible crossover events during the nineties, if this is what passed for reference… go read something else or buy it, if you have trouble sleeping.”
Overall, this comic was great.
First Marvel company crossover.
Not enough customer review ratings.

I recommend this Copper Age comic as the greatest Marvel event of all-time.

MARVEL UNIVERSE GOES OUT WITH A BANG! It all comes down to this! The secret power behind Mot is revealed at last – but with it comes a very personal threat to Ben Grimm! Can the Thing battle his way past the one foe that waits for all of us and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat? And in order to do so, will it mean working hand-in-glove with Doctor Doom?
1983. Japan. Tatsu Yamashiro’s life has been taken from her. Her home, her children, her husband are all gone. With nothing left but a burning pain and the sword that stole her family from her, Tatsu begins a long journey of healing, self-discovery, agency, and rebirth. This is the story of Tatsu Yamashiro, the woman known to many as Katana-a hero who became more than the world ever intended for her, ultimately making a family of like-minded Outsiders who rally together for the common good amidst xenophobia and oppression. The long-awaited miniseries written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) and beautifully illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi continues to look at the mythology of the DC Universe as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.
As Robin and Supergirl race to retrieve the secrets of the Devil Nezha from ancient China, Batman and Superman get more than they bargained for in the present! To save humanity from the fires of the demon, the World’s Finest must go toe-to-toe with the protector of Sector 2814…Hal Jordan.
THE GREAT ESCAPE! Sabretooth and the other exiled mutants have stopped fighting each other long enough to start working together. They might not like one another, but they all want out of the Pit. You’d think their biggest obstacle would be the Professor or Magneto…but no. The greatest obstacle will be one of their own.
KORVAC is on the loose and Tony Stark is on the hook for it. Iron Man and Hellcat were lucky to survive their first encounter with Korvac and his new disciples, but finding him and stopping him is proving an even greater challenge. Tony is reticent to let other hero allies in on the fact that he opened up a giant can of worms all on his own, but it might be a moot point given that Korvac has placed Tony under a very clever and threatening gag order. As Korvac powers down all of New York City in order to try and again go cosmic, Tony’s forced to turn to lesser-known colleagues on the fringe in order to stop him. One advantage he has: Hellcat is hearing things ever since their last encounter with Korvac… Strange things… Things that might overtake her entirely.
“LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE” Chapter Two. In issue #2, The Flash trains novice speedster August Heart to help protect the people of Central City from the Black Hole, a new breed of rogue with a deadly agenda for the Fastest Men Alive.
The hunt for The Joker is under way, as Jim Gordon heads to a remote part of South America to run down a lead…and comes face-to-face with the Clown Prince of Crime himself! The mystery around A-Day deepens, but not before an attack by the blood-thirsty Sampson family! And in the Punchline backup story, Punchline has to face off against the Queen of Spades’ new muscle…Orca! At the same time, Bluebird’s investigation at Punchline’s alma mater takes a dark and horrifying turn!

To begin, the art is EPIC Marvel art. The artist on the series is John Romita Jr. In the 1980s, the artist came to fame with his long-standing work on Amazing Spider-Man and the Uncanny X-Men. With writer Chris Claremont, “He’ll Never Make Me Cry” is an aftermath to Secret Wars (1984). In the less important story after the event, the artist’s pencils with gigantic physiques and detailed backgrounds in full coloring make the comic a true present.
Certainly, Glynis Wein’s coloring matches the epic tone of the story with real contrast with skin tone, though the colorful costumes add dinstinctiveness. In addition, Dan Green’s inking is a highlight of this issue. And the ensemble pencils of the X-Men show perspective between the foreground and the background with details of the destroyed bar. Notably, their proportionate musculature and ripping physiques have added power. Nevertheless, the comic excels at drama and the panel on the left shows the artist’s mastery of scenery and detail!
After a brief misunderstanding, Piotr changes into Colossus and fights back against Juggernaut. Though the battle is lop-sided, it remains one of the most heated fisticuffs between the two rivals.
‘X-Men (1965) #12, titled “The Origin Of Professor X!”, marks the FIRST APPEARANCE of Juggernaut in Marvel continuity. The issue tells of Professor X’s brother’s attack, namely Juggernaut, on Professor X and the X-Men, and of the two brothers’ origin story.
The issue was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

6. IRON MAN #3 (MARVEL)
Tony Stark is getting tired of apologizing for being himself, especially when as Iron Man he’s more powerful than most any other human being on Earth. As he wears himself out trying to do everything he can to be a force of good in the world, he’s beginning to chafe at the idea that he really owes anybody anything. Is it too much to ask for a thank you? He’s trying to keep his head down and his ego in check, but when KORVAC reveals himself as the puppet master behind Stark’s latest investment, Tony will at least have somewhere to channel his anger and frustration… That is, if he survives the conflict at all.
