Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist…we know all of these characters from decades of excellent Marvel Comics titles, and, more recently, as the heroes (and also the anti-heroes) of the collaboration between Marvel Studios and Netflix. With Marvel and Netflix bringing these characters together as the new Defenders on the small screen, the comic books Marvel publishes are also emulating this lineup of heroes with the new Defenders comic book title “The Defenders.” UrlPreviewBoxAs As long-time comic book fans know, the recent successes enjoyed by Marvel in movies and television have led to changes in how characters and teams are portrayed in the comics. Tony Stark in the comics, for example, has developed a smart-ass personality to match the Robert Downey Jr. version of Tony Stark from the movies. Prior to the movie successes of Iron Man and the Avengers, Stark was a rich, drunk playboy with a serious side to how he interacted with other characters. Now, in the comics, a lot of the serious side is gone, as the comic book character channels Downey’s take on the character. The Defenders show, as noted above, features Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist (and probably will also show the Punisher, Patsy “Trish” Walker, and others), is another example of how Marvel changes the comics to fit their TV and movie universes. The original Defenders boasted a powerful lineup including: Hulk, Dr. Strange, Namor the Sub-Mariner, the Silver Surfer, Valkyrie, and Hellcat, among many others. Wait…HELLCAT? That is Patsy Walker, who is also in the Jessica Jones TV show….hmmmm…. The new Defenders show should be interesting, even though it will not feature the classic, comic-book lineup of Defenders heroes. The new Defenders comic drops on June 14, and is written by Brian Michael Bendis, who is known for good dialogue and great character development. Art is by David Marquez.
The new X-Men film Dark Phoenix will be directed by Fantastic Four screenwriter Simon Kinberg. Given that the Fantastic Four movie was on the bad side of horrible, this is very bad news for the X-Men franchise!
Jessica Jones Krysten Ritter Jessica Jones’ Twitter account posts some videos and GIFS of rather dark humor (have you seen the show? It is all dark humor, when humor appears), that pretty well encapsulate the personality of the title character of Jessica Jones, played superbly by Krysten Ritter. Below are some embeds from the @JessicaJones twitter feed. Jessica Jones and her employability skills.

Patsy Walker/Trish/Hellcat (played in the Netflix series by Rachael Taylor) started out in Marvel Comics in Miss America Magazine #2 (Nov. 1944) as a teen humor/teen romance comic, and was popular enough to be published throughout the Golden Age into the Silver Age of Marvel Comics. Patsy became a superhero in Avengers #144 (Feb. 1976) when she became Hellcat. As Patsy Walker, she appeared in Fantastic Four Annual #3 (the wedding of Reed and Sue), which introduced her officially as part of the Marvel Universe canon. As Hellcat, she has been with the Avengers, the Defenders and other groups. She frequently teams up with She-Hulk as well. They also like to go out for drinks on occasion.

With the new Captain Marvel movie (part of the MCU) with Brie Larson in the title role, we decided to grace you with this cool image of several Captains called Marvel… From left to right: Mar-Vell in his original green and white Kree uniform, Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel in her revealing sexy uniform, Carol Danvers again, in her other revealing, sexy Ms. Marvel Uniform, and then we see Mar-Vell again in his classic red and blue uniform. Carol Danvers (the current holder of the Marvel comics character name of Captain Marvel) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by comic book writer Roy Thomas and artist Gene Colan, Major Carol Danvers first appeared as a member of the United States Air Force in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (March 1968) and debuted as the first incarnation of Ms. Marvel in Ms. Marvel #1 (January 1977) after a fusion of alien Kree and human genes gives her superhuman powers, which occurred in Captain Marvel #18 (November 1969). Debuting in the Silver Age of comics, the character was featured in a self-titled series in the late 1970s before becoming associated with superhero teams the Avengers and the X-Men. The character has also been known as Binary, Warbird, and Captain Marvel at various points in her superhero career. She reluctantly took the name of Captain Marvel only after her friend and mentor, Captain America, convinced Danvers that she needed to continue the legacy of the late Kree Captain Marvel. Due to her long history in Marvel Comics, Carol Danvers has been highly regarded. Danvers has been labeled “Marvel’s biggest female hero,” a “feminist icon,” as “quite possibly Marvel’s mightiest Avenger,” She was ranked twenty-ninth in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics” list, and was ranked #11 on IGN’s “Top 50 Avengers”. Marvel Studios announced a live-action film featuring the character, titled Captain Marvel and starring Brie Larson, which is scheduled for release in 2019.
