Some quick thoughts on the stars of today's anniversary cover:
With Disney now owning both The Avengers and the Star Wars universe, those two are more likely to meet than those in the main story. Still I'd love to see Kirk and Cap clash in their leadership styles, while Iron Man and Scotty put their heads together in Engineering. Spock and Vision would get along well, but Thor and Bones might get on one another's nerves... some fun story potential there!
I never watched Thundercats when it first aired, but I did catch the newer series and I thought it was pretty fun. it's too bad that it was discontinued. The last time I saw Wolverine animated was in the Hulk Vs. Wolverine short - probably the best Marvel related animated feature out there. I'm sure we'll see a cartoon Logan again before too long.
I haven't kept up with the comics - Has Banshee returned from the dead yet? I figured he might have a chance as he is a member of the X-Men: First Class films. There aren't enough red headed heroes out there - we lost Ralph Dibny, we can't lose Banshee too! Black Canary has recently been featured on Arrow, and it's quite an improvement on her previous live appearances in Birds of Prey and Smallville. I hope she becomes a regular part of the show.
From the trailers for the Robocop remake, it looks slickly made with a great cast... and utterly pointless. Seems crazy to me to try and redo a film that is still held in such high regard, and I think that it will suffer the same fate as the recent Total Recall remake. Deathlok is a Marvel property that would work perfectly for the big screen, and I hope that something is in the works with this great Bronze Age hero.
