It's the second and final part of our look at the top ten least likely FF storylines ever to make it to the big screen. If you thought Doc Doom as a surly hacker was bad, wait til you meet a ten year old Doom substitute. All that plus definite proof the Richards family shouldn't reproduce and John Byrne rehashing an old Uncanny X-Men trope. But bear him no malice... The only victims here were invisible after all.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Continuing our look back at 1980s Fantastic Four stories that are as big a bomb as the newly released F4 movie. Sure, the team weren't teenagers and in those days Johnny and Sue were still blood relatives... But even tradition doesn't guarantee ...

It's the final part of our Jocasta retrospective. Every good story ends with a tragic death, so you're in luck... Everyone's most ignored metalloid kicks the bucket twice!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fourth and final part of our Jocasta retrospective, the metal madame strikes out on her own, only to find life outside of Avengers Mansion ain't what it cracked up to be. And boy, does she end up cracked a lot.

It's part II of our Jocasta retrospective. She's a hip and happening metallic 80s gal who just wants to belong and ends up getting ignored, forgotten and overlooked at every turn. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) Starting out as "the bride of Ultron" in the mid 70s, the sentient robot Jocasta quickly sided with the Avengers against her creator and lover. She moved into the mansion, aided them on numerous missions and proved capable, tough and a true heroine ...

In the second and final part of our look at Ultron's 1980s appearances, the killer robot tries to bond with the man he'd been trying to kill since day 1... briefly gets stuck inside a TV & a PC and then suffers from a bout of cyber-schizophrenia. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the second and final part of our look at Ultron's 1980s appearances, the adamantium assassin is halfway through the decade when he starts to suffer from a complex combination of daddy issues and cybernetic schizophrenia.

In the seventh and final part of our look at the New Mutants' first year (or so) in the business... Magma heats things up, Kitty learns that Pryde goeth before the fall and professor Xavier has a hard time skyping with his ladyfriend Lilandra in another galaxy. 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the seventh and final part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the teens finally wrap up their South American holiday and return home with their newest member Amara, who coughs up a volcano whenever she gets upset... Which she does.

In the fifth part of our New Mutants retrospective... Chris Claremont proves he's equal parts gifted writer full of inspired ideas and trope tossing hackneyed hack. Also: Rio during carnival, family fued Da Costa style and some good ol' fashioned blackface comedy!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fifth part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the teen team is still coping with the loss of one of their own... And professor Xavier knows the best way to deal with loss: go away on a holiday. Xavier's youngest get shipped off ...

Sure, the new F4 movie is pretty bad. No Stan Lee cameo, everyone is a teen, no one laughs and Doctor Doom is an evil blogger/hacker. But don't think the comics version of the Fantastic Four was one instant classic after another. Counting down the FF's most failtastic misadventures of the 1980s!
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) The new Fantastic Four movie is out and if the early reviews are any indication, it's a big ol' bomb. Most fans prefered the traditional comics version and rejected the reimagined FF on principle alone. But let's not kid ourselves: the "classic" ...

In the third act of our Jocasta retrospective... The Avengers at last offer their female metalloid membership, only to promptly forget all about it in the following months. By 1981, she finally decided to end the misery and leave...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the third part of our Jocasta retrospective, everyone's overlooked mechanoid finally has her day. After they treated her like a prop for what seemed like forever, the Avengers finally asked Jocasta to join them as a full fledged member.

Remember when being an Avenger meant you were part of a select few? Jocasta sure does! From the late 70s to the early 80s, she tried her darndest to become part of Earth's mightiest, only to be shunned, demeaned, ignored and conveniently forgotten at every turn...
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In today's Marvel Universe, you're more likely to catch membership to Earth's mightiest than the common cold. That makes the story of Jocasta all the more tragic. She desperately wanted to join onlyt to be snubbed and ignored throughout the 1980s.

Shameless attempt to generate pageviews or timely tie-in to a movie that will define a generation... Or a delightful mix of both. Before Ultron shakes things up in the cinema, revisit how the Avengers' antagonistic automaton tormented the team in the 1980s.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) With Avengers: Age of Ultron only days away from a US release, interest in the adamantium killing machine is greater than ever. But, there used to be a time Hank Pym's cybernetic lovechild wasn't a household name at all. That time was the 1980s, ...

It's part VI of our continued look at the New Mutants' first year in comics... And for once, the forced use of Roman numerals makes sense as the team travels to Nova Roma for blood, circuses, senseless mind control and a new, fiery member. Also... Meet Selene, she just loves to suck young 'uns dry.
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the sixth part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the Roman numerals finally make sense as the teens find themselves imprisoned in Nova Roma, an offshoot of the Roman empire that didn't make it any history books.

In the fourth part of New Mutants Year One... It's semi-new mutants versus old villains featuring stale supporting characters that never felt fresh to begin with... 
By Jef Willemsen (clarmindcontrol.blogspot.com) In the fourth part of our lookback at the New Mutants' early days, the teen team is still trying to adjust to their new life as part of the larger Claremontverse. And Chris doesn't let up as he throws Viper, the Silver Samurai and a mysterious but ...
