A little while ago, one of the only ways to read digital copies of Marvel comics was through comiXology, but Amazon purchased it last year. Now Amazon is offering all the comics (up to 12,000 of them) without needing the comiXology app. The best part is the titles in the Kindle store or on comiXology will be available the same day they come out in brick and mortar stores. Some comics offered are Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers, and Daredevil.

In aid of a new promotion, Samsung and Marvel have teamed up to launch a series of Avengers themed products for the Galaxy S6, which include a series of accessories, themes and an Iron Man edition of the S6 Edge.
Samsung is well-known for having a well-funded marketing department, the results of which were seen in the latest Marvel movie, the Avengers: Age of Ultron which saw the Galaxy S6 on display. Now, Samsung has leveraged the movie again, except this time, it’s offering a complimentary set of 4 Avengers-themed limited edition cases with every Galaxy Note 4 purchased.
We can expect unique experiences from content creators on YouTube now that the service supports 360-degree videos. Today, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters in the United States and, to supplement the release, the company worked with Samsung on a 360-degree experience for Android devices. On YouTube, those with Android devices can watch Battle for the Avengers Tower. It drops viewers into the battleground that was once the squad’s headquarters.
Hit the break for the video.

If you’re an owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, or its Edge variant, you may have noticed that when you hover your S Pen stylus slightly above the screen, a pointer appears (similar to a PC’s mouse cursor). Cursors aren’t generally known to illicit much excitement from people, but Samsung is hoping to bring a smile to your face by announcing Penvatars.
Penvatars is the name Samsung is giving to its upcoming app for S Pen wielders and it will allow you to customize those pointers. Most likely the only devices that will support this app will be users of the Note 4 (or the Note Edge), with added support for older devices possibly later on. Read more
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie is getting ready to hit movie theaters which means it is time for the cross-promotional game to hit the market. Marvel Games has met that expectation with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy: TUW to Google Play for $4.99. In a gaming world increasingly taken over by the freemium model, that price might seem a little bit steep, but consider there are no in-app purchases to be made and the developers have even gone so far as to ensure the game is playable with no Internet connection.
