There’s only so long Clint can hold the line on a book that we otherwise don’t need, Uncanny reached it’s climax…so where to now?

The Avengers never existed!! No, wait, they used to exist, so they can still stop Kang from destroying their future….right? The CHAMPIONS sell out! Well, they say you either die a hero, or you live long enough to endorse….luxury skyrise condos? Clint is still doing his thing. “What is that thing?” you might be wondering. We’re wondering too. The ULTIMATES do what any hero would do when their backs are up against the wall…they go to college? Bobby DeCosta meets the new boss…and trust us, he’s gonna be screaming for the old boss real soon. In the aftermath of the takedown of Redskull, Deadpool’s got a new Bae.

“Sometimes meandering but never boring!” High praise from our Esteemed Listenership! IN THIS EPISODE…Vision wants to Make The 616 Great Again. Was that his idea…or Kang’s? Avenger X got her just desserts- A simmered sandbox souffle with cinammon and cement notes. So will Avenger X return? Well, this is comics… The Champions learn that teamwork makes the dream work, but no amount of internet famous will make a visor like that into a Team Leader…Clint Barton’s adventures might be much improved by a black eye from NightHawk…or better yet, DARKHAWK? The Ultimates aren’t bad, they’re just drawn that way, DEADPOOL vs REDHULK…..’nuff said! Annnnnd Bonus Content like an all out throwdown Writers V. Artists! Winner? Or do they need a Venom Symbiote for Maximum Creativity? NEW #1’s….who wore it best? America Chavez, Danny Rand or Man-Thing? Welcome to a GIANT-SIZED dosage of March 2017’s books on EMP….we hope you survive the experience!
