Fanboy Rampage: Dan Slott Vs. Andrew Wheeler And The Rest Of Twitter

@richjohnston No @bleedingcool article yet on Slott's Roosevelt quote and subsequent Twitter kerfuffle? I am shocked and saddened. — Wags (@Prowags) August 1, 2015 Well, Prowags we like to let the conversation actually play out first, maybe conclude, at least see where it goes before we consider running something like that. Also, I was a […]

No More Mutants: 52 Problems by Andrew Wheeler

Andrew Wheeler writes for Bleeding Cool The DC reboot is creating the wrong kind of buzz again this week with the launch of Catwoman #1. There are spoilers ahead for those who haven't read it, but you've probably heard how it ends by now. Before we get to that ending, though, it's worth looking at […]

No More Mutants by Andrew Wheeler #8 – All New, Same Difference

Andrew Wheeler writes for Bleeding Cool. Axel Alonso's recent promotion to editor-in-chief at Marvel has given me renewed hope for the publisher's creative future. I've long had the impression that Alonso is a smart guy with an eye for innovation and a knack for getting the best out of his creators. He seems to take […]

No More Mutants #7 by Andrew Wheeler – A Norse Is A Norse

In my most recent column I talked about the somewhat too-fervent passion that some superhero fans bring to the subject of diversification. I mentioned comics' black Captain America and the campaign to cast a black actor in the new Spider-Man movies, both of which were met with strong opposition, but a fresher example has since […]

No More Mutants #5 by Andrew Wheeler – Superhuman Disabilities

One of the defining characteristics of superheroes is that they are people who can do more. They can fly, or read minds, or punch through walls. Even if they have no superpowers, they still have peak abilities, and they still go out and fight crime. They do things that you and I cannot do. In […]

No More Mutants #4 by Andrew Wheeler – Look To The Northstar

Welcome to the fourth instalment of No More Mutants, a series of columns looking at the representation of minorities in superhero comics. This week I'm going to cover a subject that I wasn't planning to touch for a while, because it's the subject I'm closest to, and therefore the easiest for me to write about. […]

No More Mutants #3 by Andrew Wheeler – The Secret Asians

Quick, name an Asian character in superhero comics! Now name an Asian character who doesn't know any martial arts! OK, as stereotypes go, that's probably an unfair one to pin on superhero comics. It's hard to name many characters who aren't martial artists in some form or another – everyone gets trained by either Captain […]

No More Mutants #2 by Andrew Wheeler – Smurfette The Avenger

As with a lot of comic fans my age, I have a particular fondness for the Australia-era X-Men team. It's one of comics' strongest teams – they were isolated by geography, isolated by the illusion of death, and operating on a proactive global mission. It was also one of the strongest line-ups – a mix […]

No More Mutants by Andrew Wheeler #1 – Won't You Take Me To Mutant Town?

The mutants are coming back to Marvel. Recent events in the X-Men comics have tugged at the edges of one of the company's stranger editorial edicts of the past ten years – the decision to wipe out almost an entire minority because… there were too many of them. It sounds a little sinister. Faced with […]
