Aw, yeah!

Sam Jackson will be in the upcoming Iron Man movie. His role is yet to be officially announced but we all already know who he'll be. In fact, if he plays anyone else, it'll be a shock. What's with Marvel making mystery announcements when the answers are obvious?
Hilary Swank has also joined the increasingly star-studded cast. No guesses as to who she'll play.

Superpowers

Earth-X creators Jim Krueger and Alex Ross unveil their latest project here.

Saying Goodbye to Opal City

The very nature of the American comics publishing system has been that popular characters run on and on for years and decades, as long as they continue to earn money for their publishers. Even fewer are given the chance to be ended by their creators, and done so in the manner they'd always intended.
