At this years New York Toy Fair Hasbro unveiled a new range of action figures called 'Infinite', and contained within the second wave is an actual Death's Head figure.
I copied the following from CBR...
'MARVEL INFINITE | Hasbro took the opportunity of Toy Fair to unveil figures from the first three waves of their new 3.75-inch scale line of comic-based figures called Marvel Infinite. The series kicks off with Heroic Age Iron Man, Grim Reaper, armored Hulk, Wasp, Captain America and Hyperion. Meanwhile, the second wave will consist of Death's Head, Red She-Hulk, Yellow Jacket, Whirlwind, bearded Thor, Beta Ray Bill and Steve Rogers. Finally, the third wave includes Deathlok and Ares.'
Looking through Marvel's March releases I came across this panel from Secret Avengers #1, which features The Fury attacking a Shield agent, possibly Agent Coulson. How this fits in to the grand scheme of the comic, I don't know, but nice to know this great villain hasn't been forgotten.

Personalities clash as the bullets (and arrows) fly this March when the high-stakes, action-packed espionage comes to All-New Marvel NOW! with a bang in SECRET AVENGERS #1
This March, ask yourself the question: If you were a teen superhuman and all the adult heroes failed you when you were kidnapped and tortured, would you switch sides and break bad? Marvel is pleased to present your first look at AVENGERS UNDERCOVER #1 from Harvey Award winning writer Dennis Hopeless and critically acclaimed artist Kev Walker!
Damaged, broken, and forever changed by their experiences in Murder World, five conflicted young superhumans are out to prove to the world they can still be heroes. Now, Bloodstone, Hazmat, Deathlocket, Cammi, Anachronism, Chase, and Nico are going rogue and heading deep undercover with the Masters of Evil. And they’re going to take them down from the inside!
But the longer these teens spend undercover, the deeper they descend into darkness. And the line between good and evil blurs. Before it’s all over – a new super villain will be born!
• A corporate deep-mining setup unearths an old MYS-TECH base, where magical cloning experiments have been taking place.
• What mysteries or monsters are waiting in Britain’s subterranean bones?
• Featuring fan-favorite Marvel UK characters Dai Thomas, Pete Wisdom, and Union Jack!
I was extremely excited about the release of this one, Union Jack, Dai Thomas, Pete Wisdom and Albion (Peter Hunter), to name a few all contained within, how could you not be excited.
It started off well enough and then it got very silly! I won't ruin the story for those of you that haven't read it but it might as well have been written by Simon Pegg trying to write a Monty Python Grail script, and don't get me started on The Green Knight. Some may argue he was a representation of what's been topical in Britain in recent years, but it was just plain daft, and left me with a sour taste, and very disappointed in the issue.
Lets hope the next issue involving Death's Head II will be a lot better, without the cheese please!
First of all I must apologise for the lack of posts in the last month, it's been a busy month for me personally. I will now play catch up on the Marvel UK related releases that have been previewed, and some released in the past month, starting with Revolutionary War: Dark Angel.

Part 2 of “Revolutionary War”
• When Shevaun Haldane experiences a troubling vision in Darkmoor Castle, she realizes danger may be coming for the heroes of Marvel UK.
• With time running out, Shevaun has no choice but to suit up as Dark Angel once again.
• An adventure that will take fans through the past, present, and future of Marvel UK!
This was released Wednesday 15th January, and I have already bought and read it. On the whole it was good, some inconsistency with some of the art, but the story itself was stronger than that of the first issue 'Revolutionary War: Alpha', which was good. Both issues have followed a certain theme with the main heroes, Captain Britain in Alpha, and Dark Angel's issue both ending with a cliff-hanger, especially for each of them, which I can see all building up to the final issue 'Omega'.
