TGIF


This week - Dream Couples....


In the "Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow" DVD—on sale everywhere on Tuesday, September 2—we'll meet the newest generation of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, a group that springs forth from couplings amongst the Avengers we know and love. While some of the Next Avengers' parents represent classic couples such as Hank Pym and the Wasp, others come a bit more unexpectedly, such as Captain America and the Black Widow.


We asked some of Marvel's editors and creators which Marvel couples, both actual and idealized, they'd like to see settle down, grow old together, and maybe produce some super-powered rugrats along the way.It's Friday, so kick back, relax and enjoy.

TGIF


A little late this week but here's the latest TGIF :


As much as we'd sometimes like to think otherwise, the world can't be divided into simple pockets of good and evil. Sometimes the good guys can't be trusted and sometimes the bad guys have reason to do what they do.If things can be that complicated in the real world, just imagine how crazy they get in the Marvel Universe. And while we love and respect the heroes trying to rise above it all, we can't help but appreciate the ones who know they must straddle the line.Call them anti-heroes, vigilantes, whatever you want—the Marvel Universe could not function without men and women who operate in the grey areas of morality.We asked a panel of Marvel editors and creators for their favorite "shades of grey" characters and got the following.




RAISING THE FLAGG




Want to know more about the mysterious Randall Flagg and where he's reared his dark features throughout the King universe ?

TGIF


From the Marvel site:
Heroism in the Marvel Universe doesn't end at the boundaries of the United States—and neither does villainy.Whether they hail from fictional lands such as Wakanda and Latveria or real exotic locales ranging from Japan to the UK, some of Marvel's greatest stalwarts have emanated from way outside of Manhattan.We asked some of the extended Marvel family—including England's Paul Cornell and Mike Perkins, Mexico's Humberto Ramos and Spain's Rafa Sandoval—for their most beloved characters from across the world.

NEWSARAMA INTERVIEW


There's an interview with the hugely talented Vaneta Rogers up at Newsarama. We had a really nice long chat over breakfast in Chicago - going over The Stand and my career so far ( I'm hoping that section of the interview will also see the light of day at some point).
