Peter_Dinklage_xmen

Yep, Peter Dinklage is Bolivar Trask in "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Back when the "Game of Thrones" actor was first cast in the over-stuffed mutant sequel, we broke the news - from an anonymous but reliable source - that Dinklage was the creator of the Sentinels.

Then, when we talked to Dinklage on the Red Carpet at the Game of Thrones premiere, we asked him point blank about playing the character, though he deferred. And now, definitive-esque proof:

I read a lot of comics. Like, A LOT a lot. I’ve got my Wednesday comics, trade paperbacks for my commute, and my perpetually growing to-be-read stack. But there are always books that stand out. Comics that are so great you want hug them the second you finish reading them and then tell all of your friends (and a few strangers) about 'em--the Best Stuff. Here’s the Best Stuff I Read This Week.

Hey there, campers! The unofficial start to summer kicks off this Memorial Day weekend! While that means hitting the beach, firing up the grill, or heading out of town for most people, for us indoor kids, it means curling up with some great comics (and maybe a cool gin and tonic) for a nice long weekend reading next to the air conditioner. No? Just me?

Anyway. I’m pretty sure you’re all more than ready to get this weekend started. So I won’t ramble. On to the Best Stuff from this week!

Each week, Matt Wilson, co-host of the War Rocket Ajax podcast and author of The Supervillain Handbook, examines at a major comic news item and picks a few winners and one loser among the week's comic book releases.

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created Superman 75 years ago.

Notice I didn't say that 2013 is Superman's 75th birthday, though a lot of people have been putting it that way. The trouble is that Superman isn't an actual person. He's a character creators have been reinventing for decades. Every few years, Superman is reborn, sent to Earth again and picked up by the Kents. He grows up and moves to Metropolis. He becomes that hero all over again. Superman has, by now, probably 30 birthdays. Maybe more. He'll have another when "Man of Steel" comes out June 14.

In 1986, news broke that United States government officials had been selling arms to Iran, and funneling the profits to the Contras, a group of anti-communist rebels in Nicaragua. The Iran-Contra Scandal (as it would come to be known) was a defining event in the Reagan administration; the investigations and trials that followed dragged on for years, and gave many Americans a less-than-rosy view of their government and its secretive dealings.

In 1966, Marvel was setting the standard for the comic industry. Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and their contemporaries were breaking all the rules and making comics hip for readers young and old. Stan Lee had begun to give lectures on college campuses, the "Marvel Super-Heroes" cartoons were being shown on TV, Lee and Kirby's Galactus Trilogy storyline in "Fantastic Four" had introduced cosmic awareness into comics, and John Romita Sr. was beginning his run on "Spider-Man."
