Marvel this week of September 17th 2012

Welcome to this weeks update on all things Marvel. Well I'm sure I'm not covering all things, but I try and touch on as much as I can.

In comic book news

 Avengers vs. X-Men round 11 has come out last week and it is by far the best of the series yet. I heart breaking battle between the last two members of the Phoenix Five and a slew of both Avengers and X-Men. Check out my full review here on this site here.

Incredible Hulk #13 also came out last week and while it did have a bit of a hiccup for at least one issue in the past 13 issues, it all culminates here. If you haven't checked out the new Incredible Hulk series you are absolutely missing out.

In Marvel game news

The Avengers Initiative game on the iPad was released and it is addicting. Amazing graphics, good story and features and fun game play make this worth every penny of the $6.99 it cost.
The only downside of the game, you have to start all the way back at the beginning if you lose to an opponent. There's no save points, but you do however get to keep your level achieved. 

In other Marvel App News, I saw an ad for this new App in regards to HeroClix. I attempted to play HeroClix in its normal fashion but couldn't get into the game. This however looks a little better and I think I'll get this game as well and check it out. Check the link here: http://heroclixtabapp.com/tabover/TabOver.html

In Marvel Movie News

There is a cool article up at Comicbookmovies.com where Chris Evans talks about the upcoming Captain America movie and even hints towards a possible cameo in Thor. Check it out here: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=67425

In Marvel Gear News

Check out the new robes over at superherostuff.com I saw these at the Fan Expo convention in Toronto, they were very cool and I'm thinking I have to get one of these for Christmas.
