Marvel Teases Doctor Strange.

Last night, around midnight, instead of being in bed with my petite nymphomaniac of a wife, I was up doing something incredibly nerdy.  This thing I was busy working on was so mindbogglingly geeky, I’m not even going to tell you, gentle reader, what it was… Alright, I admit it, I was creating a spreadsheet of the 46 types of wood used to make wands in the Harry Potter Universe.  I was converting them over to the Hero Game System (5th Edition).       Anyway, in the middle of…

Is It Really The Marvel Universe Without The Fantastic Four?

Fifty plus years ago, Benjamin Grimm piloted Reed Richards’ prototype spacecraft on what turned out to be a disastrous and miraculous flight.   The covert mission itself was a stunning failure but the resulting collateral damage was the birth of The Marvel Universe.   Triumph after triumph seemed to follow in those heady days so it’s no wonder that everyone wants to take the glory for being the genius who thunk it all up.  Was it Stan Lee?  Was it King Jack Kirby?  They both took the credit but I think it’s…

Tonight’s Review Brought to You by Jameson!

Just before the gobbledegookapalooza* that was Marvel’s Secret Wars 2015, many of Marvel’s greatest heroes were given satisfying, fitting and reverent ends to their storied careers (DareDevil, Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel, Moon Knight, The Punisher, Ultimate Punisher).  Some other heroes were given less auspicious send offs (Iron-Man, Iron-Man, Master of Kung Fu, Iron-Man).  But, whatever the circumstances of the goodbye, there was the promise of a new beginning, a fresh tomorrow and an answer to every question.   If you have been following DareDevil then you know that the new…

Looking at Girls Makes Our Butts Hurt!!!

This has nothing to do with comics and everything to do with what a bunch of twatiferous, lame-ass, twisted panty, little pansies so many fanboys seem to be these days.  The first teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just hit the internet and it was met with a chorus of moans and wailing along with tooth-gnashing and the rending of garments.  Oh the Humanity!  Disney is making another Star Wars film with a female lead?!  Life as we know it is over!!! These puketastic puddles of puppy piss make…

Finally Some Feels.

Hollywood doesn’t know how to kill characters.   Well, obviously Hollywood knows how to kill minor characters.  Just stand them in front of Batman or Superman.  Those two maniacs kill everything they see.  But major characters?  Yeah, not so much.  The death of a major character has to have a five-minute crescendo of swelling orchestra.  There have to be heartfelt looks in the eye.  Then there’s the wink and the catchphrase before the major character dies in some insanely heroic fashion…usually saving the rest of the cast (at least).  If…

Glorious News…Unless it Isn’t.

This morning Warner Brothers’ announced that they were pushing back the release date for The Jungle Book and pushing forward the release date for Wonder Woman.  Now my rusty gears are turning.  Is this in response to the positive response WW got in Dawn of Justice?  Or is this panic over Suicide Squad?  The Jungle Book looks like a winner but its fx are clearly not finished yet.  Maybe that is the issue.  Still, can the visuals for Wonder Woman be further along?  Will we be getting a rough looking print all in service…

My Wife is Leaving me for Frank Castle. I Can’t Tell You Why Because Spoilers…

Curse you Netflix!  I always thought if my wife left me for a celebrity it would be for Rachel Maddow.  It’s no secret that whip-smart wonk makes her little heart go pitter pat.  (Fun fact:  When she isn’t on TV, Rachel dresses just like Jessica Jones.)  I was mistaken, though.  The Punisher is my wife’s one true TV crush.  DareDevil: Season II did such an excellent job of humanizing Frank Castle that my true love actually gasped aloud  while watching, “I love you, Frank Castle.”  More than once.  Like lots…
