No love for Cable & Deadpool? That series got me into comics completely

Good call! I need to amend that Deadpool note. That book’s gold!

I beat Shocker in #MarvelHeroes and got a card that unlocked Old Lace. This game is like every #Marvel thing I’ve ever wanted. #gaming #comics #dinosaurs #runaways #cable

Thursday morning Sugarman!

Cable and Deadpool and gore and insanity! Exciting!

Get ready, Marvel fans! The Merc with a Mouth will be coming into your home this summer in his brand new video game! Check out these mind-blowing images from the upcoming game featuring Deadpool, Cable, and his beloved Death. And get the full scoop on the game and more exclusive images here!

Will you be able to handle Deadpool’s very first video game?

Was I correct to break up with my boyfriend? He said Gambit was the best Marvel character and that Cable needed to "get a life."

I hope you crushed his heart into a million little pieces and every one of those pieces was kinetically charged and exploded inside him and he then realized the error of his ways. He will pine over you for decades. You will go on to find the true love you deserve, a person with whom you can read volumes of Cable Classic together in front of a roaring fire and love life.

You have done well.

This question has been killing me all day long, and I figured if I had an Avengers Alliance question YOU were the guys to ask! So I have enough Command Points(135) to recruit either Deadpool or Cable- but I am having a terrible time deciding which awesome guy I want first!! So tell me straight: DEADPOOL or CABLE
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:

That is a very good question! Deadpool is…Deadpool. He’s fun to use and very wacky, but he’s certainly not the best character strategy-wise in Marvel: Avengers Alliance. On the other hand, Cable is actually pretty amazing in PVP if used correctly and excellent in everyday use. I’m about to level Cable up to 11 (DP’s currently level 10 as well) and he’s pretty great. 

My advice: go with Cable!

DeadPool is one of my favorite Marvel heroes. Who is your Favorite hero? (...I hope it's DeadPool...)

It’s a toss-up between Cable and Deadpool. :)

You’ll be hearing tons about Marvel NOW! in the coming months. This image, by Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, is a cool teaser and just the tip of the iceberg. Read the full interview on and stay tuned to and the Marvel social channels during Comic-Con next week for more! Who do you think should be on the Uncanny Avengers team?

via marvelentertainment:


Beginning in October 2012, Marvel starts a bold new chapter in its history, with Marvel NOW!, a publishing initiative extending into 2013 that will touch every major Marvel character from the Avengers to the X-Men to Spider-Man to the Fantastic Four and beyond. spoke with Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and Senior VP – Executive Editor Tom Brevoort to get all the details on what to expect from Marvel NOW! In your words, what is Marvel NOW!?

Axel Alonso: Marvel NOW! is the next chapter in the ongoing saga of the Marvel Universe. From October through February, we’ll provide at least one great reason for readers—old, lapsed or new—to go into a comic store each week: a new issue #1, featuring an exciting new creative team and driving concept, that’s an easy entry-point into the Marvel Universe. Each and every one of these launches is built to last.

Tom Brevoort: Marvel NOW! is a coordinated creative refresh across our entire publishing line, a unique moment in which the creative reins on virtually all of our quintessential series are being passed from one person to another. As a result, there’ll be both the excitement and uncertainty of seeing a new creative partnership handle characters and series that have been in other hands consistently for many years. And at the same time, this is the perfect instance for readers both new and lapsed to dip their toes back into the Marvel pool, in that all of these creators are going to be beginning their story-cycles during this time, so it’s about a clean a point of entry as there’s ever likely to be.

Joe Quesada: Marvel NOW! is the next step in Marvel story evolution and character evolution. It’s not a reboot. It is a universe-shifting catch-all, which really just tells fans that if you enjoyed Avengers vs. X-Men, get ready for what the outcome is because there’s some major, major changes coming to the Marvel Universe. A lot of changes to the character status quos, alter egos, costumes, creator shifts, design shifts, the way that we do our covers, digital shifts and the way we start delivering our books. We’re continuing with our evolution push as we start to embrace more and more of the digital world and its technology; the sky’s the limit with Infinite Comics, AR, and all sorts of things. As the technology changes we’re going to change with it and our fans are going to eventually tell us what it is that they really love out of all those things that we’re playing with. But it’s a big shift because it’s not just story and character. There’s also the way we tell our stories and the way we deliver our stories that are starting to change as well.

Do you know if Marvel will ever reprint the Cable Classic trade collections? They're really hard to find (in my experience so far) and I'd really love to read the early stories about him.
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:

Ever is impossible to speak to. That’s, like, a long time. So…maybe? But I have no definite info for ya, sorry. 

If you go digital, we’re always adding Cable comics and collections to the Marvel digital comics shop and app.

In light of the upcoming Avengers film, who is your favorite super hero and who is your favorite villain?
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:

Favorite super hero: Cable.

Favorite super villain: M.O.D.O.K.

A sloth keychain and a drawing of Cable? IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

I was a guest on my buddy Pat Loika’s Loikamania podcast this week. It was fun and I got kinda heated about comic book journalism stuff. Also, we talked about tacos and Cable and my job and what have you.

I was also on Chris Snider’s Just Talking podcast this week. Also fun!

Spotlight on Scarlet Spider & Cablepool DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the Marvel BLiP video game blog!

And Chris Baker, who runs the blog, wrote a haiku about Scarlet Spider:

Ben Reilly wondered,

“Am I Spidey? Or a clone?”

He fought crime. Then died.

Here’s Cablepool:
