    30 Years of Spider-Woman

    August 12, 2014 by ARTaylor

    This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the debut of the second Spider-Woman, better known as Julia Carpenter. She first made a shadowy appearance in October 1984 in Secret Wars #6 before making a full appearance the following month in the next issue. The character's black and white costume became the basis for Spider-Man's symbiote costume appearance. Following the miniseries, Julia went on to join the Avengers, before Jessica Drew did, and Force Works. She currently operates as the second Madame Web.

    Outside the comics, Spider-Woman made only one appearance but it was significant. She was one of the main characters on Iron Man, one of the few to stay throughout the entire series. In fact, she was Tony Stark's main love interest. In the …

    July 2014 Poll Results

    August 1, 2014 by ARTaylor

    The month is over and the results are in. We asked visitors which female superhero was their favorite.

    1. First place with 20% of the votes was Black Widow. The character has seen a recent upswing in popularity. While a recurring character on The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, she is now a regular on Avengers Assemble and had her own film earlier year with Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher.

    This morning Wikia, the central site that hosts this one, started the 2014 Wikia Fan Express. Several prominent members of the community, including yours truly, were inviting on a train trip from Los Angeles to San Diego where we will attend Comic-Con International. Along the way we got to see a preview of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, got to try out the new Maps feature, and got a preview of the upcoming series The Quest from Lord of the Rings producers. Those of us invited also get to spend four days at Comic-Con interacting with creators and fellow fans. You can check out our Twitter feed @MAU_Wiki for updates.

    Last month we asked how excited people are for the upcoming Big Hero 6 following the release of the teaser.

    1. It seems that 67% of the people did not even know about the movie. Despite arriving in theaters in just four more months, very little has been confirmed about the movie like the cast. The film is also based on an obscure and somewhat new Marvel Comics property. Looks like The Walt Disney Company will need a stronger marketing campaign if they wish to raise awareness before the November release.
    2. 17% of the people are very excited to see the movie. Walt Disney Animation Studios has been on an upswing in quality and box office returns with their recent movies.

    This year is the forty-fifth anniversary of the debut of Sauron, who first appeared as Karl Lykos in X-Men #59 in August and as Sauron in X-Men #60 in September. He was originally intended to be a bat-like energy sucker, but censorship issues against vampires forced the dinosaur-like appearance. Since his debut he has been a thorn in the X-Men's side constantly going between ally and villain, been involved with Weapon X, and joined the Brotherhood of Mutants and most recently the Hellfire Club. The character first appeared as a recurring villain on X-Men, made a guest appearance on Wolverine and the X-Men, and most recently made several appearances on Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
