Need Help? The heroes for hire are here!

I just came back from the comic book shop and I bought the new Civil War tie-in copies. I have with me right now, Heroes for hire #1, Wolverine #45 and New Avengers #23.

I wonder what's Spider-Woman doing in the cover of new Avengers #23. I haven't read it yet but I'm guessing that Spider-Woman has changed sides and has already and joined Captain America's Side. Well what do ya' know? She has been giving information against the Registration Act side. Well, that's war. We can't avoid spies but Spider-Woman shouldn't have blown her cover that early. So who's next? I mean who will be the next hero to change side? I have a very good guess and I know you know him. He is somewhat similar to Spider-Woman and he has a new costume.

Is it Barney? Krusty the Clown? or Michael Jackson? The answer is Spider-Man so you have to be ready next month (there has been delays again) to grab the next Amazing Spider-Man issue.


For Wolverine #45, it's obvious on the front Cover that Wolverine will be facing Namor. Why? I haven't read it yet but let me take a wild guess again. My guess is based from the previous issue of Wolverine. Namor, as we all know is one heck of a boss in Atlantis and his cousin Namorita has joined the fate of the other New Warriors members. So to shorten this one up, Namor and Wolverine is fighting for who will give Nitro, the villain who took out 600 lives, the justice he deserves. So if Namor will win the battle, he will take Namor to Atlantis and give Nitro the execution he just deserves. On the other hand, if Wolverine gets Namor, he will have to give Nitro what he deserves. A painful death. And you are right, I don't think Nitro should ever be put in prison and if the S.H.I.E.L.D. does that, I think they'll just be facing their death wish. Nitro will blow up himself again. And yeah that's what he do. He blows himself up. Don't get me wrong, what I mean is he ignites and explodes. You naughty boy.

As for Heroes for Hire #1, I have no clue on what will happen on it yet but I think it's something the S.H.I.E.L.D. has come up with to help them capture costumed criminals or what I mean is costumed heroes who doesn't wanna register. What I heard is that Black Cat and some other gorgeous Super Sexy Lady heroes are involved in this one. Let me read them first then I'll post a spoiler here.

Well, that's it. Till next time lads.

This post has been changed for wrong information posted. Thanks to Jepster.

Civil War Tie Ins: Civil War: Front Line #5 and Ms. Marvel #6 to be released today

Are you Civil War fanatics out there ready to grab the latest Civil War tie-ins?
Two titles are gonna be released today so you better get your asses ready for these ones. The first tie in you should grab is Front Line #5, where Bubblehead, er... I mean Speedball will go on trial. Will justice serve him well? Let's find out after we buy that issue.

The Story: Embedded within the heart of the battle between super hero registrants and resistors you
will learn the real story behind both sides of the Civil War! In any conflict there are those
who want to keep the facts hidden, but on the Front Lines the truth will be told.
In “The Accused”: The New Warriors survivor goes on trial! Their life was spared from the Stamford Disaster. Will justice be so kind?
Also featuring true tales of war in Civil War: Correspondence.


The second tie-in will be about the training of super-heroes which will be led by no other than Carol Danvers or more popularly known as Ms. Marvel. Does the super-heroes really need training? I guess let's find out on the new issue of Ms. Marvel #6.

The Story: Ms. Marvel enlists in the CIVIL WAR! With the Super Hero Registration Act in full effect, Carol Danvers joins forces with Simon “Wonder Man” Williams and Julia “Arachne” Carpenter to police and train heroes. But there is a traitor in their midst--someone who is undermining the registration movement and endangering everyone!

The Thing makes his decision

The last time I checked Marvel.com, Fantastic Four #539 was supposed to be released last month, on the month of July. It was just recently released last August 02, along with Agents of Atlas, which I also bought along with Fantastic Four #539.
Agents of Atlas: In the late 1950’s, The U.S. Government let FBI Special Agent Jimmy Woo forge a team of unlikely heroes: Together they stormed the fortress of a criminal mastermind to rescue President Eisenhower, and the group disbanded soon after. Now almost 50 years later, an unauthorized S.H.I.E.L.D. mission goes down in flames--and from the ashes arise forces from the GOLDEN AGE OF MARVEL!
Some of the things I will have to say here are spoilers so if you wanna keep the suspense alive in you, don't read this yet. What happened in Fantastic Four #539 happened simultaneously with Amazing Spider-Man #534. So Iron Man's troops are about to transfer a group of hero captives to a temporary prison. Captain America, on the other hand, are planning on a diversion to release the captives. While the two sides are making all the plans against each other, the Puppet master, one of the Fantastic Four's former foes, are planning on taking advantage of the feud on both sides.
The Puppet Master uses radioactive clay to make puppets of people that he can then control, attaching them to strings and moving them as puppets, presumably he has some sort of psionic ability that enables him to do this. He is the step-father of Alicia Masters, a blind girl who holds an attraction to Thing. He once tried to take over the world but was thwarted in this effort by the Fantastic Four.
The Puppet master along with The Thinker who created a Cerebral Enhancement System which will boost Puppet Masters mental powers, are in a hidden nearby base where all the clay pieces are in position. What Spider-Man sensed in Amazing Spider-Man #534 was the Puppet Master. So along Yancy Street (Correct me if I'm wrong), the chaos began. The Puppet master, taking control of weak beings, creates disaster none of the teams are both ready for. One of the Anti-Registration act supporter died from a blast. It was one of The Thing's friends. So Ben Grimm made his decision not to join either side but to go out of the country and never comeback. So the question now is, is the Fantastic Four going to break-up?

Speedball is a real Bubblehead: Part 2


So what happened to Speedball? This hard-headed-cause of all the disaster-hero is still as stubborn as a fungus residing in your toenails. Why can't he just apologize to the public about the Stamford disaster? Can't he just admit that he was responsible? If not for him, none of the Stamford tragedy would have happened. Almost 600 people died and he still sticks to his erratic principle. I mean, he tried to take down heroes above form his level of powers. That's stupidity and dumbness.

So what happened in the prison? Mr. Bubblehead, yeah Speedball, went on a boxing match with the best fighter in Jail. I was amazed when I saw that he still has the skill for a boxing match. But the prisoners won't let him win so some inmate cut his leg with a knife. Just right for him. Right for a man with no conscience. Bubblehead's mom even visited him in prison to persuade him to apologize to the poor family and the people of America. Robert Baldwin, a.k.a. Speedball is the most hated man in America at present.

All of this events happening in the Marvel universe only.
