Civil War II – Review (and Rant)

civil-war-iiHello interweb, Nate here!  You know what I decided I wasn’t going to do when this book was announced?  Read it.  The reason is because most event books are pointless and Marvel makes them so often that they’re annoying.  I also knew that this book was nothing more than a response to Captain America: Civil War because if people saw Captain America: Civil War and then saw that Marvel was producing a book with “Civil War” as the title, people would want to buy it.  Now I JUST got finished with the final issue and good god it was horrible.  I did not anticipate this book being as bad as it was and I want to let off some steam.  So with that, here’s my review!

MAJOR SPOILER WARNINGS FOR THE FOLLOWING COMICS: Civil War II, Ultimates, Doctor Strange, Spider-man, and Ms. Marvel

Top Favorite 5 Marvel Comics of 2016

marvel-logoHello interweb, Nate here!  Last year I tried and failed to do a Christmas series special thingamajig with my 90’cember.  So, why don’t I do something simpler!  I’ll count down the top 5 Comics each company has produced this year as well as all the comic book movies!  So here’s my Top 5 favorite Marvel comics of 2016!

Funny side note: Originally my idea was to have a top 10 best comics with Marvel and DC on a combined list and then a top 10 worst comics of both companies still, but I liked almost everything being published right now so pretty much the only bad comics I could think of is Civil War II and New Avengers because I didn’t like either of those titles. Even the comics I read that I thought weren’t amazing still wasn’t that bad, just okay.

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!

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.

Ultimate Spider-man Vol 1: Power and Responsibility – Review

Ultimate Spider-man Vol 1 Power and ResponsibilityHello interweb, Nate here.  Sorry I didn’t post anything Monday but hopefully this will make up for that.  So I’ve said several times in the past that I like Miles Morales/Spider-man more than the current Peter Parker/Spider-man, and I still have that opinion.  Many people say that Spider-man comics has been going downhill since the terrible storyline that is One More Day but I don’t really know how true that is since I haven’t been reading comics for that long.  With the lack of really good Spider-man stories recently, I decided to check out the Ultimate Spider-man comics starting with the first trade (consisting of the first 7 issues): Ultimate Spider-man Vol 1: Power and Responsibility, which retells the origin of Peter Parker, aka Spider-man.
