Because I'm happy - Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I'm happy - Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I'm happy - Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I'm happy - Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do”

Secret Wars Update – In Secret War news (no, not the villain, we’ll get to that later), Marvel has released six more titles related to Secret Wars.  First up, we have Skottie Young’s Giant-Sized Little Marvel A vs X – because Avengers vs X-Men was so good we have to revisit it in baby form.   Then Mrs. Deadpool & Howling Commandos with Shiklah, Werewolf by NIght, the Living Mummy, Frankenstein, and Marcus the Unbeatable Centaur – which just goes to prove Marvel will publish anything.  Next comes, the crime drama the Squadron Sinister based on the original version of the Squadron Sinister.  Wait, I thought that was ere a mind-controlled Squadron Supreme?  I’m going to have to wiki that at some point – there’s just been so many versions of the damn team.  Captain Marvel takes command a an all-female fighter squadron in Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps.  While I know this is a reference to Captain Marvel fans, I really hope every pilot in the book is named “Carol”, cause that would be hysterical.  In Years of Future Past, we get to explore the fact that Kitty Pryde mentioned she had been a mother in the original series – because again, why let the alternate future fade away when you can beat the dead horse for a few more bucks.  Armor Wars will feature Tony vs Arno in a timeline where you need armor to survive.  Anyone want to place bets that Tony is the villain in this one too?  And finally, the 90s are back (oh, God) as the X-Men Animated Series returns in X-Men ‘92.  Hopefully this will be better than Marvel other attempts in the digital format.
