Deadpool, the subversive superhero movie, is slaying box office records. To put the biggest R-Rated opening weekend in perspective, Deadpool’s domestic gross of $132.7 million from Friday to Sunday ($152.2 million Fri-Mon) handily beats out more established comic book franchises Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($95 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($91.6 million).

Deadpool is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” and he lives up to his name by delivering one-line zingers and pop culture references at a rapid fire pace.

All-New-X-Men_Vol1_HC

• All-New X-Men Volume 1: Yesterday’s X-Men (Collecting #1-5); Release Date: April 2013

• By Brian Michael Bendis (writer), Stuart Immonen (penciler)

• Featuring: Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Angel, Iceman, Wolverine, Magneto

Standing above the glut of current X-Men titles, writer Brian Michael Bendis revitalizes the franchise by returning to what makes X-Men the preeminent super hero team.

Although the premise seemingly sets up a mutant vs mutant civil war scenario, Bendis wisely grounds the conflict within the original X-Men team from the past confronting their disillusioned present day counterparts.

Set after the events of the Phoenix Five, new mutants are popping up around the world after being on the verge of extinction. It’s here that we catch up with Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, formerly possessed by the dark Phoenix Force and now a renegade fugitive. His intent is on starting a revolution, but by attacking humans in order to get to the new mutants, Scott has become everything he once despised.
