WizKids’ Dice Masters Classic Avengers Monthly OP Event

If you’re looking to add some classic Avengers to your Dice Masters you’re in luck as the next organized play event for WizKids‘ Dice Masters is Marvel Dice Masters: Classic Avengers. Organized play is exactly as it sounds and encourages stores to hold regular events where participants can win prizes and also receive items for just participating.

This OP kit features three cards, Iron Man: Pro Reg, Ant-Man: Classic Avenger, and Captain America: Classic Avenger. The first two cards are meant to be given out to those who perform the best in the events and the final cart is a participation card that everyone gets.

Ant-Man looks to be a new card using the Civil War set die, while Iron Man is also from that set with a card of the same name, and Captain America looks to be a new image for Civil War‘s Captain America: Freedom Fighter.

Review: Captain America: Steve Rogers #4

Captain America Steve Rogers #4 CoverWhile Captain America: Steve Rogers #4 is billed as a Civil War II tie-in and Steve attempting to broker a truce between Iron Man and Captain Marvel, the interior is nothing of the sorts and between the teaser text and the interior, I was so confused I actually checked the text in the small print at the beginning to make sure this was issue four.

The comic is really a recap of things, so if you haven’t read the first three issues of this series, then you can catch up here. Even with a recap page, the issue is really devoted to laying where things are out. It’s a bit odd actually.

Now, there is some things that are new. Things involving Steve’s mother as well as Elisa are explored a bit. There’s a moment of Steve where he goes super villian and clearly lays out what his plan and goals are. And there’s lots of foreshadowing of the fact that Steve’s deep cover as a Hydra agent is tenuous and there’s lots of open ended things that can get him caught. Kobik, Jack Flagg, the crashed jet that Zemo died in. All of these things poke holes into Rogers’ plans and actions. The trial of Maria Hill also moves forward.

Basically, this issue feels a lot like a recap issue looking back at events and also setting things in motion with a lot of foreshadowing. It’s a bit frustrating due to that and feels like a wasted issue by writer Nick Spencer. What this has been solicited as is also completely baffling as it’s nothing of the sorts. There’s some mentions of what will be happening/is happening in Civil War II, but that takes up a few panels.

There is some good.

Captain America lays out his philosophy and plan and mixed with what S.H.I.E.L.D. is asking for, it all seems rather original Civil War. Spencer touches upon real world issues like surveillance by the state and increased powers to police, but that also is a bit shallow, an issue that also plagues the writing of the main Civil War II series. There is also an emphasis on Steve’s more brutal take on things, something that’s emphasized by his actions which aren’t very Captain America like. This is a new Captain America who would be ok with Black Sites and torture, not the one who stood up to the Super Human Registration Act. The emphasis is clear with this issue as this fact is stated and shown in various ways throughout the issue. Getting the philosophy and outlook of this new Captain America is a good thing and gives us some more insight than picturing him as a puppet of the Red Skull, but it also doesn’t feel new, just a retread of speeches we’ve heard from the classic character Nuke (in his various forms).

The highlight of the issue really is seeing the new Quasar. Where this character goes and what the plan is, I couldn’t tell you. But, to see something put a smile on my face.

Javier Pina and Miguel Sepulveda handle the art duties and it still holds up. The scenes in the past are what really stand out with their use of limited color, the art looks fantastic. I think the flashback sequences have been the strongest thing of these four issues, and would love to see an entire comic series done this way. The “modern” art is still good, but something is lost. Some of the scenes are brutal really showing off the new Steve, but some of the character art is a bit miss. Still, it’s a good comic to look at during the read and the use of the two distinct styles is a great choice.

The issue continues a rather middling series. Captain America: Steve Rogers #4 isn’t bad, but it’s also not really worth your dollars either. As an issue it feels like its job is to recap everything that has happened in just three issues and do some foreshadowing, it’s just not enough, nor is anything vital that it’s a comic you have to have to understand what’s going on or what’s to come.

Marvel Unveils New Details on Tribute Statue Celebrating 75 Years of Captain America

Since his creation in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Captain America has gone through numerous evolutions, but  always remains as one of the world’s most influential and inspiring Super Heroes. Kicking off a new phase of the year-long celebration of 75 years of Captain America, Marvel Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media have unveiled a slate of heroic activations taking place at San Diego Comic-Con and beyond to honor the First Avenger, along with a wide range of celebratory merchandise.

Headlining the Captain America 75th anniversary celebration, Marvel has collaborated with high-end collectibles maker Comicave Studios to create a one-of-a-kind Captain America statue that will be displayed at the Marvel booth #2329 at Comic-Con International on July 20. Comicave Studios worked closely with Marvel artists in New York and a Brooklyn-based sculptor to design the bronze tribute, standing at over 13 feet and weighing 1 ton. The statue will continue to stand tall on the show floor throughout San Diego Comic-Con for photo ops with fans, and 1/12-scale bronze replicas of the statue will be available for purchase. Plus, a custom comic book was created by Marvel Publishing writers and artists to integrate the statue into new storytelling.  This one-of-a-kind comic will be available in limited quantities at San Diego Comic-Con and future Captain America events.

Following SDCC, the commemorative statue will journey via truck across the country to Brooklyn, NY – the hometown of Steve Rogers – for a limited engagement in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. Fans can follow the truck along its cross-country route through photos on social media sites like Marvel and StyledByMarvel Instagram. The statue will be on display in the Children’s Corner of Prospect Park for a two-week temporary installation, kicking off with a dedication ceremony and community event on August 10th from 1-3pm. In the evening, a special viewing of the recent blockbuster film, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, will take place in Prospect Park as part of the culmination of the Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams’ “A Summer Movie Under the Stars” program, which will be airing four Captain America-focused movies every Wednesday from July 20th to August 10th.

After the half-month stop in Prospect Park, the Captain America statue will move to the plaza outside Barclays Center on Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues for September, during which several Marvel fan activations take place. From late October through the remainder of the year, the statue will adorn the soon-to-be-opened Bed Bath & Beyond® in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Fans of all ages will enjoy a specially re-designed statue base, for heightened interactivity and photo opportunities with Captain America, as well as see and shop for a variety of unique Marvel items, including limited quantities of scaled replicas of the bronze statue itself.

Also joining the 75th celebration at San Diego Comic-Con are Marvel’s leading merchandise partners including Hasbro, Funko, and Jakks Pacific who will be commemorating “Cap” through new collectibles. As previously announced, Comicave Studios will also be offering different scales of replicas of the bronze statue itself at San Diego Comic-Con.  Additional licensees including Mad Engine, Mighty Fine, Freeze, C-Life, Her Universe, What’s Your Passion, Nick Graham, Café Press, Jay Franco, Kiddesigns, HJC Helmets and more will all feature new Captain America merchandise at major retailers this Fall.  These collections will highlight Captain America’s iconic shield and cover categories including apparel and accessories for kids, women and men, home goods, electronics, and toys. There will even be new Brooklyn-themed artwork available for a range of apparel and accessories.
