The Gifted on FOX TV based on Marvel Comics characters

10/18/2017
More
It seems like every new TV show or movie is based on a comic book. They all want to capitalize on the popularity of the more recognizable and mainstream characters from the comics. The Gifted on Fox TV goes with a different approach. **Warning, spoilers may follow** The show starts out with the Strucker family. They seem like a typical American family. This is a world where the X-men and Brotherhood of Mutants are nowhere to be found. The government has a branch called Sentinel Services. The...

Batman Dark Nights Metal #1 review

9/27/2017
More
In Batman: Dark Nights Metal #1 a lot of the mystery surround Nth metal is being explained.

In the journal he reads that Carter has been investigating the Nth Metal...

Marvel Comics Secret Empire review

9/20/2017
More
Marvel's Secret Empire story-line made Captain America a complete opposite of what we have known about him for decades. They made it so Captain America had been an agent of Hydra ever since his childhood. Understandably, a lot of people were very upset over this new Captain America identity. The narrative is set in place long before the Secret Empire series kicked off. Let me take you back to the beginning. S.H.I.E.L.D. was experimenting with using fragments of Cosmic Cubes to reshape...

DC Comics Mister Miracle #1 review

9/13/2017
More
Mister Miracle has always been a very interesting, but lesser known characters in the DC Universe. He has always been one of those characters that seemed to do better on a team rather than in his own title. Tom King is a good enough writer to finally catapult Miracle Man into the limelight. Mister Miracle was created by Jack Kirby as part of his Fourth World epic saga. Mister Miracle (Scott Free) is the one of the New Gods. He is the son of Highfather, ruler of New Genesis. To bring about...

Karate Kid Cobra Kai on YouTube Red

9/6/2017
More
The first Karate Kid movie had me and all my friends obsessed with karate. Every where you looked around the neighborhood you saw kids with bandannas tied around their head trying to perfect their crane kick technique. There was just something about that movie that had everyone fascinated. The sequels and remakes that followed could never quite capture the same excitement as the original. They were good, but just not up to the same level as the original. 30 years later we are revisiting...

Pacific Rim Uprising

8/30/2017
More
Pacific Rim gave us everything we could ask for. Giant robots fighting cool looking monsters. Mix in Ron Perlman, Idris Elba, and Guillermo del Toro and you have the recipe for a sure fire hit. In the original some aliens are sending giant Kaiju through a portal in the Pacific Ocean. Earth has Giant robots (Jaegers) controlled by two pilots connected neurologically. Of course Earth wins the battle or there wouldn't be a second film. Pacific Rim: Uprising takes place ten years after Stacker...

Batman Dark Nights Metal

8/16/2017
More
DC Comics has done a lot to right the ship. They took a beating over their New 52 initiative. Things looked a little better with Forever Evil, but they took a big nasty turn with their Convergence story-line. A lot of readers were skeptical when DC Comics announced their Rebirth line wide event. They hadn't exactly been crushing it with their events. Rebirth has been exactly what DC Comics needed. They have mixed the right amount of teasing with a good amount of revealing. It has been...

DC Comics Black Lightning on the CW

8/9/2017

The CW network has been killing it with their DC Comics superhero related series. The Arrow paved the way for the Flash. Then they snatched up the rights to Supergirl from CBS to give them a solid trifecta of superhero shows. Now they are working on one of DC Comics lesser known and greatly under utilized characters, Black Lightning. Jefferson Pierce grew up in the Southside section of Metropolis. This area was referred to as Suicide Slum because it was widely believed the only way to...
