Not only is it set during the holidays, Spider-Man: Miles Morales was made to be one of this years biggest games released for Christmas to go with the New PS5 that was released earlier this month.

The graphics on the gameplay demo below are absolutely stunning and the storyline follows on a year after the first game 'Marvel's Spider-Man' released back in 2018. You can Master Miles's unique bio-electric Venom blast attacks and covert camouflage power alongside spectacular web-slinging acrobatics during gameplay. This is a big lift that Marvel needs right now because so many gamers are disappointed by the Avengers game by Crystal Dynamics that was released only in September but has currently lost over $50 million for the company due to a drop in sales and gamers losing interest. 

Let's hope this is a success for Marvel in spite of the fact that some glitches have come to light since the games release which changes Spider-Man into various objects in the game. Gamers however seem quite amused by the glitches rather than put off. My son is too young to play this game but his favourite movie at present is Spider-Man: Into The Multiverse so he will have to settle with having the LEGO Marvel Superheroes game this year... oops! Don't tell him I said that!

The game is now available to buy for PS4 and PS5. Let us know your thoughts on the game via our social media.

We previously wrote about Director Patty Jenkins reluctant to release the movie on a streaming platform however recent news has been revealed by Jenkins herself about the movie still being released in cinemas but also on HBO MAX with no extra cost to subscribers on Christmas Day to help bring joy over the holidays.

Who will be watching it Christmas Day? I know I will be!

Over the years, both Marvel and DC have used the oversize Treasury Edition Format and graphic novels to bring together a compendium of previously published festive stories or for one off festive tales.

Here's are our Top 5 Christmas editions released over the decades.

5: 1976 GIANT SUPERHERO HOLIDAY GRAB BAG.
With an awesome cover by Gil Kane, this winter warmer featured stories featuring Spider-Man, the Hulk, Nick Fury and Doctor Strange. Although most of the stories weren’t specifically Christmas tales, they were all tinged with that feel good sentimentality.

4: 1975 GIANT SUPERHERO HOLIDAY GRAB BAG.
This one did contain Christmas stories featuring Marvels most popular heroes. Check out the tale of “ Spider-Man goes mad” from Amazing Spider-Man 28 by the classic team of Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, co creators of Spider-Man.

3: 2011. BATMAN. NOEL.
This dark and stylish graphic novel by writer artist Lee Bermijo takes its inspiration from Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”.
Read in front of a warm fire on Christmas Eve for a real treat.

2: 1998. SUPERMAN: PEACE ON EARTH.
Story by Paul Dini and sumptuous artwork by Alex Ross, this beautiful book encapsulates not only the spirit of Christmas but also the essence of the selfless Man of Steel.

1: 1974 GIANT SUPERHERO HOLIDAY GRAB BAG.
With a timeless cover by Romita and Buscema, this is surely the coolest Festive collection ever containing the most heartwarming Marvel tale ever, “Have yourself a Sandman little Christmas” a reprint of Marvel Team Up #1 featuring Spidey and the Human Torch facing off against Sandman.

Happy Christmas from all at Worldofsuperheroes!

LEGO Batman Bath Bombs

Looking through some craft ideas to do if the kids are stuck inside on a rainy day or even if you fancy making some to fill those stockings this Christmas. I found this on 'See Vanessa Craft' and it looks messy and great fun for any age. You just need to get a mold and a few ingredients but you can make it smell how you want with different oils and different colours. Joker Green, Harley Quinn Red, you can be as creative and unique as you want, the kids will love getting messy with these and you can add any plastic toy you want but obviously LEGO characters fit great. 

Ingredients
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Epsom salts
3/4 cup corn starch
1 teaspoon water
2 teaspoon peppermint essential oil (Personal choice)
3 teaspoon olive oil
5-10 drops food coloring (Your Choice) 
bath bomb molds

Obviously make sure anyone making or using the bombs isn't allergic to any of these ingredients above, substitutes or other recipes will be online elsewhere.

Quick & Easy Recipe
Just combine the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts and corn starch together in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the water, peppermint oil, olive oil and your choice of food colouring. Combine the wet with the dry ingredients, using a whisk or spoon. Mix until the ingredients are smooth then after 10 minutes, remove the bath bomb from the molds and allow to completely dry and harden overnight. There you go easy peasy, put in water or a bath and leave to dissolve to magically present your surprise. If anyone makes these we'd love to see them, share them via our social media. 

If you do have a go please share your bombs with us via our social media on the links to the right.
