Here’s What ‘Spider-Man: Edge of Time’ Looks Like

The new Spider-Man game, Edge of Time, from the makers of last year’s Shattered Dimensions, has got a trailer and some early screenshots that show what it’s going to be like to play the game. I’ve got to say that although the game’s design and superpowers appear awfully similar to what was featured in Shattered Dimensions, […]

Play As 2 Spider-Men in “Edge of Time”

When time goes all wonky and Peter Parker ends up dead, who you gonna call? As it turns out, it’s Spider-Man to the rescue. Of… himself. Hm. Well, two different Spider-Men come to his aid, actually: “classic” Amazing Spider-Man and futuristic Spider-Man 2099. Spider-Man: Edge of Time is Activision’s next Spidey game, and it puts […]

What we could have won!

So today sees the Fantastic Four finally accept Spider-Man as a member outside of the confines of a What-If story, while his Ultimate doppelganger risks facing his death. Considering the casualties in the Ultimate universe recently, I can well believe Brian Michael Bendis would kill him off. After all, far be it from BMB to […]

Can a Rewrite Save the Spider-Man Musical?

I think the producers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark have figured out why no one’s ever attempted a superhero musical before. Geeky myths and high theatre just don’t mix very well. (I mean, seriously — when was the last time your favorite hero-in-tights suddenly stopped fighting his or her archnemesis so they could burst […]

Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark Pics Revealed, Make Us Cringe

I wrote last week that I wanted to see the Batman Live Arena Tour more than Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark. One of my big complaints was rumors that the character concepts for the Spidey Musical were said to gravitate too far away from the originals, a big concern for myself and comic book fans […]

Spider-Man Hits the ‘Big Time’

Marvel has just released a brand new trailer for the next big story arc of Amazing Spider-Man, which presents the next major change in status quo for Peter Parker.

Spiderkid

A British boy genius named Hibiki Kono has transformed himself into a real-life wall-crawler. So enraptured of Spider-Man was 13-year-old Kono that he constructed a device that allows him to scale walls by crawling up them. Entirely on his own, he spent five months working on a gadget that connects two vacuum cleaners to a […]

State of the Multiverse 70

It’s not new to have a hero on the run, pursued by former allies and the forces of the law. It is a little newer for said hero to actually be guilty of whatever they have been accused of I suppose, but not tremendously so. What a disappointing consequence to what was actually an excellent series.

Marvel Televisions – Yes, You Read That Correctly

You know, I’ve been saying to all my friends for years now, “Why don’t they make a hi-def TV with my favorite Marvel comic book characters on it?” Guess what? They’ve finally done it.It’s like the peanut butter and chocolate combination of this century. That’s right, Marvel Comics has teamed up with RTC23, to release […]

State of the Multiverse 9

When Cloak and Dagger were revealed as members of the (Dark) X-Men, my initial reaction was ‘Huh?’ They are favourite characters of mine, and have been ever since their first appearance all those years ago in the Spider Man titles. In fact, they soon became my main reason for reading the Spider-Man titles, I never […]
