Ms. Marvel Co-Creator And Writer Passes The Series Off To Someone New

about X hours ago from

Marvel has announced that G. Willow Wilson, co-creator of Kamala Khan's Ms. Marvel, is moving on and passing off the series to a new writer. A new comic for the shapeshifting superhero, titled The Magnificent Ms. Marvel, will begin in 2019 and be written by Saladin Ahmed.

"In February, I will have written sixty issues of this book--five years of Kamala's story," Wilson told EW. "She is now something much bigger than the miniseries Sana and I planned years ago. She will, in all likelihood, outlive us all. I couldn't be happier about it--and by that same token, it means that my part in Kamala's adventures must eventually come to an end. Great superheroes stay fresh and relevant because they are the work of many storytellers, all of whom bring their unique perspectives and experiences to the character. Earlier this year, I began to have the persistent feeling that I was in danger of repeating myself every time I sat down to write a new script. It was a sign: time to start planning my exit."

Pokemon Go Winter Event Announced, Adds New Shiny And Gen 4 Pokemon

Niantic has announced a new holiday event for Pokemon Go. The festivities kick off next week and run into the new year, during which time players will be able to earn bonuses, hatch Eggs more easily, and even encounter more Pokemon originally from the Sinnoh region.

The third annual winter event begins on Tuesday, December 18, and once again, it brings back the festive hat-wearing Pikachu for a limited time. On top of that, Niantic says that more Ice-type and Gen 4 Pokemon will appear during the event; the promotional image the developer shared features Snover and its evolution Abomasnow, along with Munchlax, Chingling, and Croagunk.

Even more interestingly, the image also features three Legendary Pokemon from the Sinnoh region--Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit--suggesting the trio will make their debut in Pokemon Go soon. On top of that, Niantic says the rare Ice Pokemon Delibird will also be available during the winter event, as will its Shiny variant.

New Mutants Release Date And Everything We Know About The X-Men Horror Movie


The X-Men franchise is a strange beast to keep up with. The timeline is muddled, there's a variety of offshoots that include everything from Wolverine to Deadpool, and the quality of the movies is all over the map. For every X-Men: First Class and X2: X-Men United, there's an X-Men: Apocalypse or X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

That's what makes one of the upcoming X-Men titles, The New Mutants, so interesting. For the first time in the franchise, this isn't your typical superhero film. New Mutants is diving deep into horror territory as it adapts a truly scare line of comics.

In a franchise littered with movies, New Mutants is trying something new to stand out and, though it's been repeatedly delayed, we can't wait to see how it turns out. That is, if it retains the horror style we've seen from clips and trailers thus far.

There are still a lot of things we don't know about New Mutants, which is surprising given that it was originally set to be released in 2018. However, after doing some digging, we've learned quite a bit about this horror offshoot of the X-Men films.

Here's everything we know about The New Mutants. Luckily for you, GameSpot has also pulled together information for a bunch of other things you're looking forward to in 2019, including Godzilla: King of Monsters, Captain Marvel, Shazam, Wonder Woman 84, Star Wars: Episode IX, Toy Story 4, and Game of Thrones Season 8.

Get This Free PC Game From The Epic Game Store Before It Goes Away

Steam may have revolutionized how PC games are sold, but it's no longer the only big player in town. The latest challenger to Steam's dominance is the Epic Game Store, where you can pick up titles like Fortnite and Ashen, as well as exclusives like Supermassive's early access title Hades. To help spark interest in the new digital storefront, Epic is giving away a different game for free every two weeks. The first freebie is the open-ocean game Subnautica, which is available until December 27.

Normally selling for $25, Subnautica kicks off as you crash-land on a submerged alien world. Your first job is to make sure you can survive by finding food, fresh water, and crafting materials you can use to make everything from diving gear to underwater living quarters. As you progress, you'll assemble tools that let you venture further into the depths of the open world, acquiring better materials and finding clues to what made you crash in the first place.

Dark Phoenix: Everything We Know About The 2019 X-Men Movie

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

The X-Men franchise moves forward, and in 2019, the 11th movie in said franchise--including the three Wolverine movies--will hit theaters. Ignoring the fact that the newest line of X-Men films completely messes with the franchise's timeline, the new series of movies, which debut with First Class, has been a blast, filled with more highs than lows.

The latest movie, titled Dark Phoenix, tries once again to tell the tale of Jean Grey turning into the Dark Phoenix. This is something 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand tried to do and failed at horribly. From the looks of the first trailer, the movie seems a bit more grounded and less focussed on how much they can cram into a single movie.

While we're still months away from its release, there is a fair amount we know about the next X-Men movie, probably because it was originally supposed to hit theaters during the winter, before it was pushed to late spring. So if you can't wait for the next installment in the X-Men franchise and have to take in as much about the movie as possible, we got you covered.

Here's everything we know about Dark Phoenix, and if you want to learn more about 2019 movies that we're excited to see, check out our everything we know galleries about Godzilla: King of Monsters, Captain Marvel, Shazam, Wonder Woman 84, Star Wars: Episode IX, Toy Story 4, and Game of Thrones Season 8.

Here's An Exclusive Look At Assassin's Creed's New Graphic Novel

Titan has published a variety of comics based on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed franchise this past year, but one of the more notable has been Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies, a two-part standalone series previously only available in French. If you missed out on the individual issues and would like to experience the saga in its entirety, Titan has announced it is releasing both parts together as one graphic novel, and it hits comic stores next week.

The Assassin's Creed: Conspiracies collection releases on December 18, and it combines both issues of the series into one 104-page graphic novel. Unlike any of the video games, Conspiracies is set during World War II and follows the story of Eddie Gorm, a rookie member of the Assassin Brotherhood who must stop the Templars from unleashing an atomic weapon. Here's Titan's synopsis of the series:

"Europe, World War II: On the sidelines of the race for the atomic bomb, discover the story of Eddie Gorm and his integration into the Assassin Brotherhood while he infiltrates the Templars to foil their plan to create a devastating weapon."
