It's also worth noting that the current GI Joe series that just started last week is being written by a woman, Karen Traviss. I haven't read the issue yet, but I have heard good things.

The same woman responsible for the Star Wars Commandos books is writing a G.I Joe on-going?

Captain America 3 and Guardians 2.

That's why I love indie comics so much. Less adds, and the content is much better than most of what Marvel and DC have to offer, IMO. I like the big two, but the only on-going titles I'm currently getting from them are Batman and Deadpool. The rest I can wait until the trade is released.

I think they're on pretty equal footing. They both have some great origin stories, and some totally wacky.

This. They each have their ups and downs.

I'd say this is true when it comes to almost anything between the big two.

Huh. Interesting casting choice.

When this guy becomes ridiculously famous because of this movie I'll be able to say that I used to work with him. What a claim to fame that would be.

@battle_forum_junkie: i heard about the fury being the son of nick fury making him nick fury jnr which removes the idea of the infinity formula but i have not seen any images to support it ....

Here you go.

He was introduced as Marcus Johnson in the 2011 Battle Scars mini-series. As Nick Fury he appeared in Secret Avengers in 2013.

Edit: Jr. did have the Infinity Formula in his DNA, but it was drained from him by the same people that took his eye.

Actually, Samuel L. Jackson's likeness was used - without his consent - in The Ultimates, four years before he first appeared in the MCU. Which the Ultimates has a heavy influence on, I might add. I also have no doubt that they introduced "Samuel L. Fury" in the comics because of the success of the MCU, but they didn't really change Fury's race, he's actually Nick Fury, Sr son, Nick Fury, Jr.

Lame excuse, I know, but an excuse nonetheless.

As far as the animated series, Avengers Assemble was already loosely based on the Avengers movie - having several references to the film, from what I understand - and Ultimate Spider-Man was already loosely based on the aforementioned Ultimate Universe.

But to answer your question; Until the films start directly influencing feats in the comics - not just costumes and slight character changes - I don't really see why this would be a problem in battles.

Besides, the Marvel Studios films are in a separate universe called Earth-199999.

Darkseid all day he's stronger and way cooler

My thoughts exactly.
