My Opinion on Spider-man and the X-Men

Spider-man and the X-Men #1

Announcements

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So recently Marvel has announced that due to Death of Wolverine, Spider-man will take Wolverine’s place as a teacher for the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.  Now I have to admit, I haven’t really been keeping up with Marvel Now!’s X-Men titles.  I haven’t read Wolverine and the X-Men because I was worried it would be less Wolverine and the X-Men and more Wolverine With a Few Cameos From the X-Men (as many of you know I am not a fan of Wolverine), I haven’t read the current run of Uncanny X-Men, and I have only read the first two trade paperback copies of All New X-Men (meaning I have read the first 10 issues) and stopped because nothing was really happening.  Besides those, I haven’t read Battle of the Atom (but I’m planning to), I have read AVX (Avengers Vs X-Men), and I have recently read Death of Wolverine.  So now that you guys no where I am with the X-Men titles, let’s check out the preview to this upcoming title.

Top 10 Favorite Superhero Cartoons [Re-Do]

Announcements

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Last May, I created my Top 5 Favorite Comic-Based Cartoons as one of my first top 5 list.  Since I have seen many more cartoons since then, I thought I’d go back to that list and update it with more cartoons.  Now not only will I add cartoons to the list, but it is possible that the cartoons that remains from my previous list may be in a different order based on new experiences with the cartoons and/or different views than what I saw earlier.  Also, we all have different experiences with the cartoons of some of our favorite comic book heroes, so my list may be different than yours due to different nostalgia and tastes so don’t hate me too much your favorite cartoon didn’t make it onto the list.  Now with that said and done. let’s get to the list!

TV Show Review – The Flash “Pilot”

The Flash Poster

Announcements

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Sorry I didn’t post anything Monday but I asked on my Facebook page if I can do this review today instead and you guys seem to be ok with it.  So I actually ment to review this a week after it aired, like what I did with my Gotham review, however I forgot about it and didn’t get to it.  So while I have seen the first 5 episodes of the series, this will be a spoiler review for the first episode only.  So if the first episode is the only episode you have seen thus far, than feel free to read because this episode is the only episode this review will spoil.  With that all out of the way, let’s get to this review.

Damian Wayne (The Fifth Robin) – Character Bio

Damian Wayne, True Son of Batman, the Fifth Robin and the Fourth Main Robin

Damian Wayne, True Son of Batman, the Fifth Robin and the Fourth Main Robin

Announcements

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So you may notice that I called this Robin the fifth Robin even though this is my forth Robin bio.  That is because the Fourth Robin is technically the blink-and-you’ll-miss-her Stephanie Brown who is my personal favorite Robin (I like the other Robins best when they change their ID, Nightwing, Red Robin, etc.) and had an extremely short run as Robin and as a result isn’t that significant to the other Robins.  There is also Carrie Kelley who was a non-cannon Robin but due to the fact that the non-cannon story The Dark Knight Returns is one of the most famous Batman stories, people like to include her.  And so I decided that that is the poll for today: Do you want me to do a Bio on the two remaining Robins?  And you can choose between Stephanie Brown, Carrie Kelley, Both, or Neither.  Either way, I’m not going to get to them before I complete my reader-requested Ant-man Character Bio.

With that mouthful of announcements aside, I did a Character Bio for Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, and Tim Drake.  Now for the fourth male Robin, the fourth main Robin, and the Fifth Robin in general: Damian Wayne, the true son of Batman. (more…)
