I recently purchased a Marvel Legends Captain America Shield. That’s not a brag, although I suppose it kind of is because the shield is awesome, but it helps give context for the rest of this piece. You probably have figured it out by now, if you’ve been reading this site for the past five years or so, but I love collecting things. Always have. When … Continue reading Falcon and the Winter Soldier- Is The Shield The Show’s True Villain & Can It Be Redeemed?
Monday’s the day of the week that needs the most assistance not to be a bag of suck. Tuesday is great because of tacos and because it’s not Monday. Wednesday gives us comic books and is the halfway mark of the week. Thursday is for getting thirsty, or was when I was in college, and also good for tacos. Friday is the end of the … Continue reading Loki- New Trailer & A Possible Bonkers WandaVision Theory
Geeklings, I’m tired and more than a little worn out (#thankswork). I’ve been on the phone so much this week that I’m starting to lose my voice which is giving me this pre-pubescent/Kathleen Turner-like vibe which no one asked for. All I want to do is sit on my couch with the Mrs., Hudson the Cat, and spark up Godzilla vs Kong. That’s literally all … Continue reading The Young Avengers Are Coming To the MCU, Right?!
As I’m getting older I’m finding that it’s more and more difficult for me to stay up late during the week. There was a time where if I wasn’t up until 11:30 something was wrong. Of course, at the time I was working two jobs and didn’t get home until 9:30 at night. That only gave me like two hours to decompress before I started … Continue reading The Last of Us- HBO Finds Its Ellie & Joel
Episode five of WandaVision sure dropped some drone sized bombshells on us, didn’t it? Also, why are we firing missiles from a drone at children?! I know they might not actually exist but come on, that’s bad form SWORD. Why did you have to wait for Wanda to come outside? If you were intent on firing at her from the jump, why not just blow … Continue reading Did WandaVision Just Set Up A Potential Captain Marvel 2 Conflict?
“Vision, is this really happening?” Near the end of the second episode of Wandavision, Wanda poses this question to Vision as she suddenly goes from being without child to very pregnant in a blink of an eye. Yes, the start of the episode sees the couple pull up the covers so they can “get down” in a classic sitcom trope, but the mathematics of the … Continue reading Wandavision- An Exploration Of Loss, Grief, & and How We Cope
July 2, 2019 Now, out of context, this might seem like a random date that I just picked out of the ether. Maybe I’m pining for the 4th of July holiday weekend or maybe I’m just wishing the temperature wasn’t in the twenties. Perhaps I just flipped through a 2019 calendar, that I just so happen to have randomly hanging around, and landed on July … Continue reading The Return of the MCU
The pandemic has really put quite the damper of the 2020 Marvel year, hasn’t it? Think about it, we were prime for sooooo much Marvel goodness this year. There was going to be Black Widow kicking off Phase Four and probably giving Nat the sendoff she deserves while introducing what is to come next for the MCU following Thanos and all things Infinity Stone related. … Continue reading Did The MCU Just Find Its Kang the Conqueror?!
Today kind of feels like that moment near the end of Endgame. All of our heroes have dramatically returned from The Snap, I refuse to call it the Blip, and the most epic superhero showdown ever is taking place on screen. Ant-Man is gigantic and punching space monsters in the face. Cap has Thor’s hammer. And then out of the dust emerges Scarlet Witch and … Continue reading 2020 The Year Without A Comic Con
Everyone stop what you’re doing! Just stop. Don’t take that sip of water. Ignore the dog barking in the other room. Don’t go to the bathroom just yet. Don’t flip those burgers… maybe you should do that. I don’t want you to overcook dinner that’s not cool. Otherwise, stop what you’re doing. I want all your focus here on this column. The only thing you … Continue reading The Perfect Role For Giancarlo Esposito In the MCU
