Brian Michael Bendis's List Of All The People He Says Can Beat Batman

Now that the second-longest continuous writer at Marvel Comics, Brian Michael Bendis, has signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics, everything he ever said anywhere on the internet about DC Comics is up for discussion. Including this great post on his Tumblr from earlier in the year, when asked about the comparative fighting abilities of Batman […]

Josh's Throwback Corner: An Overview Of Bendis's Heroic Age New Avengers

This will be a bit different from the previous "Throwback Corner" articles I've done. Whereas others have taken apart a single volume or collection from a series, this will be taking the 2010 New Avengers series by Brian Michael Bendis as a whole and talking about why I like it so much. This is in […]


The Return Of That Feminist Agenda T-Shirt (Marvel Comics Spoilers)

It was the cover that launched a thousand threads on 4chan/co: "Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda" sported by Mockingbird on the cover of her solo comic written by Chelsea Cain. It was a mocking cover that was seized upon my critics looking for an actual feminist agenda at Marvel comics — as if equality […]

Secret Empire #5 Review – Just Not Good Super Hero Fiction

Now, even though I am Bleeding Cool's "Secret Empire is actually pretty good" guy, doesn't mean I think the series is perfect. It has its flaws, and one of my first two articles for BC was my review of #2, which was a comic that could basically be summed up with "Hey, don't forget to […]

Secret Empire: Underground #1 Review- A Great Self-Contained Adventure

*Ties into the Secret Empire crossover Another Secret Empire tie-in, yay! I know that's what you all were waiting for. I was actually kind of looking forward to Secret Empire: Underground #1. It has a lot of characters I genuinely like in it: Mockingbird, Hercules, Sam Wilson, and Ant-Man. Quicksilver is really cool too, though […]

Marvel Comics To Give More Copies Of Mockingbird #3 Away For Free

The new Mockingbird comic written by Chelsea Cain has been described as a puzzle box of a comic. Which is the kind of thing that doesn't always suit a direct market serialised comic book where if readers don't quite get one issue, they don't bother getting the next. Bleeding Cool was the only site to report […]

Marvel Sends Out Free Copies Of Mockingbird #2 To Match #1 Orders

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a retailer in possession of an order for a first issue of a comic book will drop orders for the second issue by a third to a half. Why? Some readers will try the first issue and not find it to their taste so will not want the […]

Mockingbird Wants A Cheeseburger

In a clip from tonight's Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, Bobbi Morse aka Mockingbird is being interrogated by Interpol inside of Moscow about the death of three high-ranking Russian officials. She is silent through most of it, until asked if she has anything to say for herself… to which she asks for a cheeseburger, with mayo! […]

Mockingbird Hits High On The Sarcasm Chart

I remember reading the original Hawkeye miniseries when Mockingbird was first introduced back in 1983. Now she is a regular on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, possibly heading to her own series on TV and getting her first on-going comic series. They grow up so quickly. The new series from writer Chelsea Cain and artist Kate […]

How Mockingbird Got Her Wings (SPOILERS)

This is the cover for the new Agents Of SHIELD series launching in January, featuring a number of characters created for or worked into the TV show. That includes Bobbi Morse, known in the Marvel Universe as Mockingbird, and gearing up for her TV spinoff in Most Wanted. And she seems to have taken to […]

Chelsea Cain And Kate Niemczyk To Launch New Mockingbird Comic From Marvel

It was announced at the Baltimore Comic Con Summit that Chelsea Cain would be writing a new Mockingbird comic book. And here it is, drawn by Kate Niemczyk. Chelsea talked to Marvel's website saying "she'd never had her own book – and even the one-shot was part of the 50th Anniversary of S.H.I.E.L.D. thing. She's been really underserved by the Marvel […]

Mockingbird Gets Trademarked Ahead Of New Comic Book Series

We know that Chelsea Cain and (probably) Joelle Jones are bringing us a new ongoing Mockingbird comic book. Well, given that the trademark for Mockingbird has just been registered for "comic books; printed periodicals in the field of comic book stories and artwork" by Marvel and the January solicitations are already out, we can probably look […]

Chelsea Cain To Write Ongoing Mockingbird Series from Marvel In 2016

Okay, no that's not Mockingbird, that's a Gwenpool sketch taken at the Diamond Baltimore Retailer Summit. But it was announced that Chelsea Cain who wrote the recent Mockingbird SHIELD 50th Anniversary Special and managed to merge both her Marvel Comics ex-husband and her Marvel Studios ex-husband together, will be writing a Mockingbird ongoing series for […]
