Comic Issues #222 – Ultron’s Secret Wars

This week we flip the format to keep you unspoiled: we’re going to break down Age of Ultron into teeny tiny controversial pieces, but we save that for the last half of the podcast to be safe. There’s some serious discussions about whether or not Whedon’s characters are sexist, and some serious geekgasms over our favorite scenes. Especially that scene. You know which one we mean.

In the first half we look at the latest issues of Convergence (with very little idea of what’s going on anymore) and then geek the heck out over the first issue of Secret Wars.

TriPod! 5.7.2015 – Avengers: Age of Ultron

Welcome to TriPod! – the weekly video podcast featuring the latest news in geek culture and the last word in real-talk analysis of geek trends.

TriPod!, hosted by long-time Pixelated Geek sass-master and afficianado of all-things-geek James Huneycutt, the ineffable Johnathan Crass – whose Fu-Manchu is as impressive as his categorical knowledge of indie-gaming – and the ceaselessly cranky but inarguably analytically accurate Taylor Tate, is a weekly video podcast featuring the latest news in geek culture and the last word in real-talk analysis of geek trends.

Pixelated Geek Presents TriPod! Season One Episode Seven – 5.7.2015.

This week TriPod! covers Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This is our most important episode to date. We are very, very serious about the content contained within, and we would be very interested in feedback on the points we make.

[SDCC 2014] Marvel Panel – Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Marvel panel (specifically the Avengers: Age of Ultron portion) at San Diego Comic-Con was one of the most eagerly awaited, hard-to-get-into, and most talked about event of the convention. Thanks to photographer Hilary Papiro, we have dozens of photos of the panel, plus a video of the cast (Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany) as they took the stage to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ’till You Get Enough.”

Preview: What if?! Age of Ultron

If you thought the Age of Ultron turned the Marvel Universe on its head, you won’t believe what will happen in WHAT IF: AGE OF ULTRON, a mind-bending  five-part series from Marvel Comics! They say one person can truly make a difference, and that statement couldn’t ring truer for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. So what if another founding Avenger had died in the Golden Age of Heroes instead of Hank Pym? Could the reality we know endure without one of its strongest pillars? The short answer is—NO!

Each issue of WHAT IF: AGE OF ULTRON explores a Marvel Universe without one of it’s greatest champions. Imagine—an Armor Wars without IRON MAN! A RAGNAROK without THOR! A country without CAPTAIN AMERICA! Written by rising star Joe Keatinge (Marvel Knights: Hulk, Morbius: The Living Vampire) and an assembly of tomorrow’s hottest artists, WHAT IF: AGE OF ULTRON hits hard with its twisted takes on the Marvel Universe!
