We’re back! We’ve got another big one for you this week, so let’s dive right in, shall we? All-New Marvel Now! will be presenting us with a handful of new #1′s, Magnus: Robot Fighter returns to comics, the Teen Titans get the Pop treatment, Zero Year returns, and there’s a whole heck of a lot more. Here’s the Monday Update.
As mentioned earlier, Magnus: Robot Fighter is back, and his new title is getting our spotlight this week. Part of Dynamite’s new “Gold Key” universe, Magnus actually takes place in the future where robots and humans live together in harmony, or do they? Having lost everything being transported to this strange new world, Magnus has to find answers, and presumably fight some robots along the way. There will be action, there will be adventure, it will be awesome. Don’t miss it.
All-New Marvel Now! has been throwing all sorts of new #1′s at us since its inception, and this week is no different. In fact, we’ve got 3 #1′s and a point now, all in one week! First up is Avengers Undercover #1. Following the events of Avengers Arena, the surviving young heroes decide to try and infiltrate the criminal underworld. Will they be able to maintain their integrity, or will they find themselves on the wrong side of the law? Next, we have Captain Marvel #1. Carol Danvers is back with the same outfit, the same name, the same writer, the same haircut (maybe?), but all-new numbering! Then, it’s the conclusion of Deadpool vs. Shield in Deadpool #25.NOW. Deadpool is finally going to get paid for taking care of all those dead presidents, or else. What makes this a point NOW issue? Who knows? Finally, we have Secret Avengers #1. It involves outer space, a Russian spa, Hawkeye, The Fury, and more. I’d go on, but apparently, it’s a secret. See what I did there?
Turning our attention to DC, it’s looking like quite an action packed week. We’ve got two Forever Evil tie-ins with Constantine #12, and Justice League of America #13. Next, after taking a little break last month, Zero Year finally returns with the conclusion of “Dark City”. Will Batman find the Riddler and save the city? Of course he will. This takes place in the past, so we know what’s going to happen. But we don’t know HOW it’ll happen! Finally, speaking of the future, we’ve got the only Justice League book that has nothing to do with Forever Evil: Justice League 3000 #4. When the league of the future learns the secret of their creation, will they be able to keep fighting? Will they?
Meanwhile, Stray Bullets returns with a double dose of awesome in Stray Bullets #41 and Stray Bullets: The Killers #1, Fantastic Four #2 stretches its way onto our shelves, Frankenstein’s monster meets Jack the Ripper in Monster & Madman #1, and the Teen Titans will be showing up in the form of adorable Pop figures. Plus, Royals: Masters of War #2 arrives, the 6 million dollar man: Season six begins in comic book form, some more Star Wars Black Series figures are on the way, and X-Men: Legacy reaches its landmark 300th issue!
