    If you haven't been paying attention to Marvel Comics recently, they have been offering teaser images for some big event next summer. Most have dealt with revisiting comic book stories throughout the years. But the most recent one hints at reviving X-Men, that 1992 animated series which also happens to be the longest running Marvel animated series.

    As you can see below, the teaser image features the X-Men members Wolverine, Professor X, Rogue, Gambit, Storm, Cyclops, and Jubilee in the designs from the acclaimed series. Though both Jean Grey and Beast are missing.

    Will the longest running series become even longer or will they be visiting others in the multiverse? Only time will tell now.

    I Need a Vacation

    November 3, 2014 by ARTaylor

    I really hate to do this, but I need to take a break from this site. For the month of November, I will not be working on this site. This doesn't mean I won't be around, but don't expect much. I'll be doing little things like dealing with vandalism and providing the occasional news report. I'll even try to do some stuff on Twitter. But I won't be writing any new articles or making major updates.

    I don't want to do this, but there is simply too much going on in my life right now. I love working on this site. It's often relaxing and cathartic. I love Marvel and I love Marvel series. I work on this when I need to forget the stresses in my life.

    But it can take a lot out of me. Doing a full article can take a lot of time. A micro-episode takes me…

    The ongoing battle between comic book legend Stan Lee and Stan Lee Media Inc. has resulted in another defeat for the company this time in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. SLMI still argues that they were given the rights to characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four. However, a panel of appellate judges wrote, "The record demonstrates that, between the date the [1998] agreement was signed and the filing of related litigation in 2007, SLMI never announced that it owned rights to these characters (even when publicly disclosing company information pursuant to a securities offering), licensed the characters, produced content related to the characters, or asserted or attempted to enforce its ownership rights.
