Hello interweb, Nate here. So quite recently, a YouTuber by the moniker “Kuro the Artist” recently released a video in which he power scales all of Ben’s aliens from weakest to strongest. If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out here. Being the mega Ben 10 fan I am, I had some issues with his scaling of these aliens. So I figured I’d try it out for myself and list every single alien Ben has used from weakest to strongest. Now, some of my list will be similar to Kuro’s but I will have deviations here and there. I’m using similar rules as his video (No fusions or Ultimate forms nor any future aliens) as to keep these consistent. I’m also using the same tiering system he uses since that’s honestly a really easy way for me to rank these aliens since I could just divide all these aliens among the different tiers and then organize them within each tier. So, let’s start! (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. Hey, remember when I said I’d start posting every Friday? I f***ing lied! It’s really hard to keep a consistent schedule when you just don’t have the motivation to do it. Depression sucks kids, don’t do it! Ok ok jokes aside…Marvel FINALLY released the Captain Marvel trailer today and of course I have some thoughts. I wouldn’t say I’m a huge Carol Danvers fan (I do like Kamala Khan though) but I am a fan of the fact that we finally get a Marvel film with a female lead and especially a lead as powerful as Captain Marvel. I’ve heard rumors said pretty much since 2012 that we’d eventually get a Black Widow movie, but I never really cared for that idea. Because quite frankly, Black Widow just never really appealed to me. She has no super powers, which is fine neither does Hawkeye, Iron Man, Batman, etc. And I love all those characters! But at least all those characters have some personality quirk or interesting mythos and stories that holds my interest and with BW, she’s just kind of boring. So Carol Danvers seems like a great character for Marvel’s first female-lead movie and I’m pretty happy about that. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! If you weren’t aware of this, yesterday I uploaded my top 10 least favorite aliens from the Ben 10 franchise. I decided to go with my least favorite first mainly just because I felt like ranting a bit so it just made sense to use my least favorites list before my favorite. It’s kind of based on that logic that if you love something enough you’re a bit harsher to the thing’s faults. Or maybe that’s just me. I really love this franchise, but over the decade of its existence, it’s had a few stinky moments. Aliens that frustrate me, retcons that makes no sense, etc. However, today we are not here to rant. Today, we’re looking at the best of the best. The greatest aliens that this series has produced! Let’s get started!
Hello interweb, Nate here! So this summer, I plan on reviewing every single Ben 10 series (and hopefully movie) from the original 2005 series to the reboot. Ben 10 has been a special show to me that has had a huge effect on my childhood, so I wanted to spend some time on this blog showing how great the series is. But unfortunately, with my college finals coming up, I don’t have a lot of time to work on these reviews yet. So until then, I decided to make two top 10 lists back to back: my favorite and least favorite of the Ben 10 aliens. As you can tell by the title of this article, you’re looking at my least favorite first. The worst of the worst! (In my opinion). My favorites will be uploaded later today. With that said, let’s begin!
Hello interweb, Nate here! A while ago I mentioned in a post that I was getting a little burnt out on only talking about superheroes and wanted to expand this blog a little. I have decided, after much consideration, to expand this blog to an overall “geek” blog that will open the doors to more discussion over more topics without completely abandoning superheroes and comics as a whole. The biggest problem I’m really having is how to reorganize this site to accommodate this change. I’m trying to think of a new name for this blog as well as a new banner (or maybe change the style of this site to exclude the banner all together?). But for now, this is a post I’ve actually been wanting to do for years but just haven’t really been able to do it. So today, here’s my Top 10 Favorite Pokemon!
Now, this list was actually really painful for me to make as I could only pick 10 out of 800+ Pokemon that exist as of Gen VII. Granted, these are my favorites so I only had to deal with the ones I really like rather than mediocre ones like Pidgey or Rattata. However this list didn’t take too long to make as I actually looked up a website that helps with creating your top 10 list accurately and quickly that I’d actually recommend trying out as it was quite fun (Pro tip: try picking ONLY one pokemon every time and avoid clicking “pass” button).
