Shang-Chi’s Day Off Part 1 (OF 1)
The Marvel Universe is full of fighters: brawlers, scrappers, weapons experts, mystical kung fu virtuosi. But there’s only one martial artist skilled enough to be called the greatest. SHANG-CHI has been a pinch hitter for a long time, stepping in for Avengers missions when no one else would do, but when no one can match your speed or skill, sometimes it’s best to work alone. To see what you’ve been missing if you don’t know Shang-Chi, don’t miss MASTER OF KUNG FU!

Marvel Writer CM Punk falls to a Rear Naked Choke

cm_punk_ufc_203At about fifteen minutes after 11pm ET Phil Brooks, better known as CM Punk, made his way to the octagon in UFC 203 for his mixed martial arts debut. Smiling, high-fiving fans, it was clear Punk was soaking in the experience and loving every minute of it, no matter the result to come.

Why are we covering this?

CM Punk, when he’s not training for his MMA fight, is also a writer for Marvel, currently writing Drax, as well as having written for Vertigo.

Quickly the match went sour for Punk as the two rushed to the center of the ring, Punk swung high which saw opponent Mickey Gall shoot low taking Punk down.

Gall controlled the fight as Punk showed his inexperience as Gall grappled with Punk on the grown eventually showing off his Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu skills and moving to Punk’s pack.

Punk showed heart though, fighting out of a choke, but eventually fell to a rear naked choke and tapped out at 2:14 in the first round.

Punk showed his sportsmanship congratulating Gall and living his dream out in front of millions.

Gall moves to 3-0, 2-0 inside the octagon. Punk’s future is unknown. CM Punk’s record is 0-1.

Check out Punk’s entrance into the arena.

Comic Writer and Former WWE Superstar CM Punk Heads to the Octagon Tonight

Tonight current Marvel comics writer and former WWE Superstar CM Punk (aka Phil Brooks) heads into the Octagon for his Mixed Martial Arts debut in UFC 203. The fight taking place in Cleveland, Ohio sees Punk fighting Mickey Gall in his welterweight debut.

Punk has been writing Drax for Marvel and has written a Thor story and a story for Vertigo.

It’s unknown how he’ll do in his UFC debut and experts seem split with Mickey the betting favorite currently. Punk refused to shake the hand of Gall in the weigh in bringing some WWE drama to the UFC.

Is this the first comic book writer to fight in the UFC? We’ll follow up later with an update as to how Punk does.

Announced at C2E2, CM Punk will return to Marvel for Drax #1! He’ll be joined by another writer to be named later and an unannounced artist. The cover for the first issue will be handled by Ed McGuinness. CM Punk debuted writing for Marvel with Thor Annual #1. This is Drax’s very first ongoing series and explores Drax’s time outside the Guardians of the Galaxy!

What does Drax do when he’s not saving the universe alongside the likes of Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon and Groot? DESTROY! Obviously. From inside the intergalactic octagon to the far reaches of outer space – experience the bone-crunching solo adventures of the galaxy’s most fearsome guardian as he makes his way through the Marvel Universe!

CM Punk, Jason Aaron, Noelle Stevenson & More Headline Thor Annual #1!

This February, star-studded creators from all corners of comics and entertainment unite for three thunderous stories in Thor Annual #1! Uniting wrestler CM Punk, blockbuster writer Jason Aaron, rising star Noelle Stevenson, Rob Guillory and more, this can’t miss lineup brings you three stories featuring three Thors of three eras!

First, wrestling superstar CM Punk makes his comic writing debut alongside artist Rob Guillory for a tale of the brash, boisterous young Thor and his genius idea to prove himself worthy to wield the mighty hammer Mjolnir – by drinking all of Asgard and Midgard under the table!

In an interview with Marvel.com, CM Punk said:

The idea was, let’s do a story about young Thor as this kind of brash bratty teenager who’s like, ‘I’m totally worthy of this hammer’. ’I don’t know why I’m not worthy of the hammer. Look at all this cool stuff I did.

Then, rising comic stars Noelle Stevenson and Marguerite Sauvage make their Marvel debuts to bring you an all-new tale of the new Thor! Who is the mysterious woman behind the mask? No one in all Ten Realms knows her secret!

Stevenson added at Marvel.com:

It’s a fun challenge both as a fan of the classic character, but also to be working with a new character who readers haven’t seen much of yet. I have the old mythology to work with, but I can also help contribute a little bit of new mythology as well!

Finally, blockbuster Thor writer Jason Aaron and fan-favorite artist Timothy Truman bring you an all-new tale set in the future starring King Thor! Join the Girls of Thunder on their epic quest to find their grandfather the perfect birthday present. How about a brand new Garden of Eden?

Patrick Stewart, John de Lancie Added to Wizard World Ohio Comic Con

Patrick Stewart has had the roles of a lifetime by portraying numerous popular culture icons. He is known to millions of fans as Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series. John de Lancie played Q in the Star Trek. Both will be attending Wizard World Ohio Comic Con.  They will be joined by headliners Stan Lee, Eliza Dushku, WWE® Superstar CM Punk®, Dean Cain and other special guests at the event, held Sept. 28-30 at Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Stewart will appear on Saturday, Sept. 29, and Sunday, Sept. 30, when he will meet fans, sign autographs, pose for photo ops and lead an interactive Q&A panel. He has been a popular guest at Wizard World events, most recently at Philadelphia Comic Con, where he was joined by the other four Star Trek captains.  Next month, Stewart will also anchor the 25-year reunion of the cast of “TNG,” with all seven primary stars gathering at Wizard World Austin Comic Con running October 26-28.

Wizard World also announced that William Shatner, originally on the celebrity roster, will not attend Wizard World Ohio Comic Con.

The Emmy-nominated Stewart, who has performed in more than 100 television and film roles, is one of several actors to appear in all three “X-Men” films: X-Men (2000), X2 (2003) and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). His role as Picard, which started on “Next Generation,” placed him in four Star Trek films: Generations (1994), First Contact (1996), Insurrection (1998) and Nemesis (2002). He also served as the voice of numerous animated characters in movies like Chicken Little and Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, as well as popular TV shows such as “Family Guy” and “American Dad.”
