Captain America: Civil War Trailer Review and Explained

Warning:  All of what I’m about to say may very well be me speculating and theorizing.  So if I say something that contradicts something that is revealed later than that is why.  Also just to be on the safe side I’m just going to say there are possible spoilers below but I highly doubt there’s anything that will ruin the movie if I mention it.

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So Captain America: Civil War finally has its first trailer released for the world to see and since I’ve done one of these “Review and Explained” for the past few trailers why not do this one.  The trailer is at the top of this post so you can see what I’m talking about as I review this thing so let’s get into this trailer!

Miles Morales/Spider-man – Character Bio

Miles Morales IIHello interweb, Nate here.  So as promised in my Spider-Gwen – Character Bio, today I’m doing a character bio for Miles Morales aka the second Ultimate Spider-man.  I do want to get a few more character bios out and since this week is Thanksgiving Break for my school I finally have the time to do it.  So if there’s a character that you really want to see a bio on feel free to comment below and I’ll do my best to get it done.  With that said I should stop stalling and get this bio started so here we go!

Spider-Gwen – Character Bio

Spider-woman (Gwen Stacy)Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I figured with All-New, All-Different Marvel going on right now this is the perfect time to start reading characters that you’ve never read before.  So I decided to go over the history of Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales.  I’ll probably have Mile’s bio up soon but right now it’s all about Gwen.

Veterans Day Special – Who is Agent Venom? – Comixplanation

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I actually forgot all about Veterans Day until now so I thought I’d do something special for today.  While a superhero blog talking about U.S. soldiers may make most people think about Captain America, I decided I wanted to go with a character who I’ve loved recently who has became an American hero in the Marvel universe.  That hero is Flash Thomson, aka Agent Venom.  Now this story is actually based on a real world event where a U.S. soldier amputated their legs during war so I figured this would be appropriate for this day.

X-Men: Battle of the Atom – Review

X-Men Battle of the AtomHello interweb, Nate here.  So despite my love for the X-Men, I have to admit that I’ve fallen behind on the team.  Now All-New, All-Different Marvel is starting up again with new X-Men titles but I’ve heard good things and bad things about Brian Michael Bendis’s Uncanny X-Men and All-New X-Men titles from “Marvel Now!” so I thought I’d go back and read those two titles before jumping on the current ones.  So while binge-reading (is that a thing?) these two X-Men comics, I finally got around to reading the 2013 mega crossover event: X-Men: Battle of the Atom.  This 10-issue story crossed over every X-Men title that was going on at the time so if you love the X-Men as much as I do than it is definitly a must read.  But I’ve stalled long enough, so let’s get to the review!  Also, spoiler warning.
