I wrote a post on my blog about the MCU tie-in comics which essentially said, “They’re good, but they could be so much better,” so when I went to the store today to pick up a copy of the Captain America: Winter Soldier Prelude I wasn’t expecting much.
I knew that it would include a graphic novelization of the first Captain America movie and the official prelude to the new one, but it also included classic comic stories that introduced characters like Hawkeye, the Falcon, the Winter Solider, and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.
My biggest complaint about this collection is that, of the seven collected issues only three of them are related to the MCU. Despite being a prelude to the new movie this weekend, more than half of this graphic novel has nothing to do with it.
Marvel released a clip from the special, “Assembling A Universe” yesterday. On the one hand, I am really looking forward…

Get ready to marvel at the power of Asgard’s favorite son. Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World arrives on 3D Combo Pack, Single-Disc Blu-ray, and DVD on February 25th and will be available on Digital 3D and Digital HD on February 4th! Bonus features include an exclusive first look at Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, never-before-seen extended and deleted scenes and more!
Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos… but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
The further adventures of Thor was a great film. It picked up where The Avengers left off with Thor and his buddies doing a little cleanup around the 9 worlds and ended with a fantastic battle that showed Thor’s earthly companions can hold their own, at least when it comes to technological solutions. Of course, the whole movie was stolen by Loki (in more ways than one) and I can’t wait to see more of the two brothers from Asgard battling wits versus brawn in future films. Someone make that happen. In the meantime, definitely add this movie to your shelf.
