Axel-In-Charge: Facing the 'Divided' Marvel NOW! Future
Dozens of Iron Man armors have been introduced since the debut of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008 — with “Captain America: Civil War,” we’re up to Mark XLVI — and a good number of those have been immortalized as action figures, from multiple toymakers. While those seemingly countless collectibles tend to blur together, Comicave Studios has found a way to make its latest Iron Man release stand out … by adding a couch.
Yes, just like the one in “Iron Man 3.”
If those Marvel Tsum Tsum toys can score their own comic, you’d think these equally adorable — and undoubtedly far more delicious — superhero rice balls could do the same.
They’re the creation of Thai food artist Nawaporn Pax Piewpun, aka Peaceloving Pax, who devotes her Instagram feed and Facebook page to “cute foodies” — whimsical rice balls, delightful dumplings and silly dumplings made to resemble characters ranging from Captain America and Superman to Harry Potter and Pikachu.
We’ve seen more than our fair share of Iron Man action figures (seriously, let’s dial just a smidge), but Tony Stark? That’s as rare as a unicorn … a bearded, wisecracking unicorn. However, Bandai is about to change that with this upcoming release from the S.H. Figuarts Iron Man 3 line.
Yes, that Marvel Studios sequel came out three years ago, but we’re not complaining, because instead of the umpteenth armored variant, we’re getting the billionaire philanthropist playboy himself!
Forget Team Cap. If this is the kind of swag Stark Industries employees get, we’re Team Iron Man all the way.
It’s the Marvel Stark Industries Messenger Backpack, aka Mark XBody Armor, and it’s without a doubt the coolest piece of superhero-inspired gear since that Captain America Shield Backpack (sorry again, Cap).
A new video lets you (literally) see things from Iron Man’s point-of-view in “Captain America: Civil War.”
Created by Danny Shepherd of ismahawk, a short film titled “First Person: Iron Man” takes a “Hardcore Henry” approach to “Captain America: Civil War” by presenting a completely first-person version of the film
Ever since Spider-Man’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe via his shield-stealing scene in that “Captain America: Civil War” teaser, everyone has been talking about Spidey’s new suit.
While Japan once cornered the pop culture market on massive robotic fights, Western action franchises have staked a claim to the title in recent years – and the biggest names in American mech have inspired the latest installment of “Super Power Beat Down.”
The web series created by animation studio Bat in the Sun is back with their version of Optimus Prime Vs. Tony Stark. It may never be enough to curb the endless “Who would win?” debates in comic shops across the country, but at the very least the video delivers some massive explosions. Check it out after the jump.
As much as I may like Captain America, if this special-edition Xbox is what you receive for joining Team Iron Man, choosing sides just got really easy.
Spotted by Eurogamer, the Iron Man-themed Xbox One was produced by Microsoft to celebrate the release of Captain America: Civil War. “Designed by Stark Industries,” the console features an illuminated “arc reactor” centerpiece, with special branding, and a matching controller (which, naturally, has its own tiny arc reactor).
The folks behind the crowd-pleasing “How It Should Have Ended” have teamed with Klomp! Animation to launch “Hero Swap,” a new series that takes a popular film and replaces the hero with another character. First up: Gladiator, starring … Iron Man.
Tony Stark could totally blast his way through those other gladiators, right? Where would be the fun in that? In kinda-sorta second-century Rome, the billionaire playboy has to contend with a dwindling power source, and a Captain America who’s not so quick to send aid.
It’s not a Merry Marvel Marching Society membership card, but this new Marvel credit card may be as close as you’re going to get.
Partnering with Synchrony Financial, the company has introduced the Marvel MasterCard, available in five designs: Marvel heroes (the Avengers, Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy), Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America’s shield, and a more subdued gray version, featuring icons of some of the characters.
When you’re ready to hop on your bike and hit the open road, you can now choose a side — Team Cap or Team Iron Man — with these officially licensed Marvel motorcycle helmets. Or, you can say to hell with both of them and justgo with Team Punisher, because when in doubt, bet on Frank.
Produced by HJC, the helmets boast a lightweight advanced polycarbonate composite shell, an advanced channeling ventilation system, and an anti-scratch face shield that’s particularly striking on the Iron Man version.
Colorist Frank D’Armata is selling a pretty sweet custom Iron Man bike for only $2,000.
The creator, who has done work on several Marvel titles as of late — including “Captain America: Sam Wilson” and “Inhumans: Attilan Rising” — wrote the following post on Facebook, advertising his Iron Man Tribute Aprilia Atlantic 200 up for sale:
If ever there were a must-have fashion accessory, it’s Tony Stark’s Iron Man glove, so beautifully showcased in the Captain America: Civil War trailers. Unwilling to wait for technology and couture to get their acts together and produce the real thing, Travis Polad created one of his own — out of LEGO.
The age-old question of whether The Joker prefers boxers or briefs is answered with the new wave of adult-size Underoos. (Ever the trickster, the Clown Prince of Crime is apparently a boxer briefs kind of guy.)
The Joker men’s set is joined by Supergirl, Deadpool, Robin, Dawn of Justice Wonder Woman, and BB-8 for women. There are also Civil War Captain America and Iron Man boxer brief sets for boys.
Following the debut of this impressively life-size LEGO Iron Man Hulkbuster, the Incredible Hulk won’t be doing any brick-smashing in London. It’s already been characterized as the United Kingdom’s “largest LEGO model.”
