    Black Panther

    Back-story on the Black Panther that we did not get in Civil War and that we did not see from the Black Panther himself. How he became Black Panther is more depth – because the movie did not go into much of that aspect because of the movie coming out in a few years. This could be the evolution of Black Panther and how he got to be where and who he is, if it differs between what was stated in Civil War.

    • I would read that. However, there is a movie coming, so whoever wants to pick this topic should consider that. At the very least, address it. – ismael676 8 months ago

    • I do think the choice to leave a lot of his backstory from Civil War was so they have things to show in his standalone film. It would really just be a re-hash of his old comics – darcvader 8 months ago

    • The Black Panther comic series was canceled for quite a while after the rise of Malcom X and the Black Panthers, due to worries that people may associate the two. Should look into that more, and talk about that.If looking up racially problematic characters, anyone interested should also look up Marvel's Captain Nazi, or the fact that Superman fought Hitler in the comics. – Truthsayer87 8 months ago

    • Whoever takes this should look at it more thematically, rather than just doing a straight history (which can easily be found on Comic Vine, Wikipedia, etc.). Rather than who he is, I'd encourage the author to look at what he stands for and represents in society. What are enduring aspects of his characterization (not just character), as he is passed from writer to writer? What do his continued associates (Storm, etc.) suggest about him? – m-cubed 1 month ago

    Suicide Squad: Movie VS. Comic(s)

    What was similar and what was different between the Suicide Squad comic and the film? What elements, including characters, from the comic could have made the movie better? What elements from the comic, including characters, would have made the movie worse?

    • This topic could also include the Suicide Squad animated movie. I haven't watched the new movie or read the comics but my love for the animation is what makes me hesitant, since it was so well done. What elements were in both, what was left out? They're both just movies so it's perhaps easier to go into what could and should have been cut to fit an appropriate feature length. – Slaidey 4 months ago

    • The shared the adventurous, defeat a villain and their army aspect, but what the film lacked was a central point. There was no room for character development with such a huge cast and many characters to follow. The film itself should have lastes at least 2.5 hours if not 3 hours. Really hoping the extended edition fixes this problem. – carlospena 4 months ago

    • The comic was way better. They tried to put ever comic into the movie in under 2 hours. – mikka1321 3 months ago

    Wonder Woman: The Evolution

    Since the film has been made and a trailer (maybe more than one) has been released as well – let’s give some background to comic readers who may not know about WW. Explain Wonder Woman’s relationship with herself, the Justice League, and how she came to be who she is today. Also, tieing in the new comic series she has had and seeing where the movie could potentially take from that instead of taking from the older versions of Wonder Woman.

    • This has already been published here: http://the-artifice.com/wonder-woman-history/ – Misagh 4 months ago

    • Thank you! I meant an updated version [I added it in there], she has a new comic series out from 2016! I wanted to focus on that and how the movie will (maybe) adapt to the newer comics being made recently instead of adapting to the older ones and making it more updated in a sense – scole 4 months ago

    The Evolution of the Hulk

    With the recent events in the Civil War II – (untimely things) – let’s talk about the evolution of the Hulk. Who the Hulk is and where he has come from. How his character has grown and at times not so grown. No one really talks about the Hulk in terms of how he grew up and how he arrived at where he was today. Specifically in the comics, since for one, the films never really were praised until Mark Ruffalo became the Hulk. I really think talking about the comics and his story arc and where he has come from in the series’ would be so great to see!

    • This is interesting...especially due to a previous topic discussing the amount of time spent on the background story of superheroes as distracting and time consuming, but it is true, I really am not very aware of the Hulk's background, other than the very bare, and minimal preliminary facts that occurred during his accident in the lab. Maybe that really is all that is to it, and that is why not much time has been dedicated to his backstory? Please remember, this is coming from someone who is not familiar with comics, at all!!! – danielle577 5 months ago

    • Although you mentioned that this topic would specifically focus on comic verse, I think it would be worth analyzing the movie verse as well. Yes, the Hulk has greatly gained popularity with Mark Ruffalo, however, his character which made great development in the Avengers regressed with Age of Ultron movie events. Perhaps a compare and contrast with comic vs. movie verse treatment and what this means for the character's overall representation would be interesting to work with – Mela 5 months ago

    Civil War I to Civil War II

    Civil War II??!? Want to focus on what Civil War II continues from the first one, what is different and what is the same. What should be and what should not be. We are having a lot of things derive from this Civil War series much like the first one – spin-offs, characters deaths, characters stepping down and so much more! What will this mean for the Marvel Universe? Did they create this Civil War in order to transition characters out and makes a storyline for new ones? Because it is starting to seem like that in some cases. What will this lead to for the MCU in regards to what’s next for 2017 and even the end of 2016?

    • Today has been a day of learning so much about comics and DC and Marvel franchises! The Civil War I was insane and I enjoyed it immensely. I completely endorse and hope for a spin off, and cannot foresee one not being conceived due to the success of the first one. There are definitely multiple transitions taking place, and unfortunately, deaths are occurring. Some of which, are upsetting especially for people like myself who are unfamiliar with the storylines due to not having prior insight through not having read the comic books. This is a cool topic that I'd be interested to see what someone has to say, and even more interested to read the responses generated from the person's article!! – danielle577 5 months ago

    The Evolution of Paper Girls

    The greatness that is Paper Girls and what this means for a really good comic series. What the plot does for future comics, what the characters do for future comics and how the future of Paper Girls is looking for comic readers. There is not much to say about the evolution of Paper Girls without spoiling it for whoever is writing it – but, there is so much to say about the characters and the plot, where it will go and where it is going now!

    • After having just read an article that mentioned this comic series, along with Saga, I am now intrigued with Paper Girls and would love to learn more. I am very new to comics, and though I was at first apprehensive, I feel not giving this medium a chance would be a loss, on my part. – danielle577 5 months ago

    Tony Stark to Riri Wiliams

    Iron Man is becoming a woman, but not just that – he is becoming an African-American woman at that! Well, Iron Man will no longer be Iron Man, but you get the drift here. How does this change the Marvel Universe? How does this change the way we will see diversity, she is incredibly smart and an African-American woman. Emphasis on that because it is rare to see that other than in A Girl and her Dinosaur and things of that sort. What will this bring to the comic series? Will you still be reading it to see what it will be like and what it will continue to bring to the Iron Man franchise?

    • Great topic....especially due to this being discussed on numerous online platforms, entertainment sites, and blogs. I am not a fan of this transition just because I don't understand the reasoning for doing so. Why not kill Iron Man and create a new character? Yet, please forgive me, and at the risk of being redundant, do remember that I am unfamiliar with the comics and I understand there might be a very intricate and thought out reasoning behind this transition that is completely ingenious and makes sense. I look forward to reading this topic and the reactions to the comments. – danielle577 5 months ago

    • A small but important part of the description is ambiguous. As a result, one can't tell if you're saying brilliant African American women are rare, or that the film portrayal of such is rare. – Tigey 5 months ago

    Captain America: Civil War

    You can focus on the hype around Civil War – Spoilers included for anyone who has not saw the film yet (I have). So Easter eggs, Spider-Man, and Black Panther!!!! Focus on how Civil War led up to the hype, or it didn’t. Were all the good parts of the film in the trailers? All the really good fight scenes as well, considering most of them were in the trailers for the most part. The awesome Spider-Man scene with his Aunt and Tony – How Tom is going to change the MCU (if at all).

    1. Focus on the hype of Civil War, did it lead up to the hype and expectations?
    2. Did the trailers prove to tell too much?
    3. Will this lead into another Spider-Man film that will be different? Did this show something different about the Spider-Man character?
    4. The prequel to Black Panther and how he will evolve in the MCU
    5. Easter eggs that will lead to other films, or even hints to what will happen in the future of MCU as well

    • If I remember my Marvel comic book timeline, Spidey was always crossing over into the avengers comics. They asked Spider-Man to join the Avengers a few times but Spidey turned them down, so I think he was made an honorary avenger. – jamiepashagumskum 9 months ago

    • It would be cool if there was a discussion the future of the characters in the MCU after the consequences of Civil War, particularly the #TeamCap characters, and also specifically the implications for the upcoming Infinity Wars movies. – andreacr 8 months ago
