Hello interweb, Nate here! So all of you probably know by now that Kevin Feige made a splash at Comic Con with his Marvel Phase 4 announcements and I, for one, was thrilled at everything they revealed. I’m just gonna go into my general thoughts first before I tackle each individual property in more depth, but before I do that I wanted to discuss some future plans I have for this blog. Soon after this post is published, I will be working on my ranking of every individual Marvel superhero in the MCU from Phases 1-3, so if you’re interested in seeing my thoughts on all of these characters stay tuned for that. After that, I’m going to start reviewing the MCU movies I’ve missed due to my long absence from this blog only back words from when they were released. This means my very next review will be on Avengers: Endgame, then Captain Marvel, Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse (yes, I realize that’s not an MCU property, but I absolutely loved it and wanted to review it anyways), and wrapping up with Ant-Man and the Wasp. So, keep an eye out for those reviews coming soon!
In addition, last year I announced that I was going to do a “Ben 10 Week” where I review each series of the franchise and the movies that comes with it. However, this came soon before I had some personal struggles that killed this blog for a while. I do intend on completing “Ben 10 Week” but the specific details will be revealed as I finalize those reviews. The Ben 10 franchise is a franchise that means a lot to me so I really want to do this justice and do a good job on explaining why the series is so great and deserve more love. With that said, let’s get into what this post is actually about! Marvel: Phase 4! (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! So, this is something that has been on my mind as of late. Mainly due to the recent news of Disney buying Fox being pretty much confirmed at this point. The X-Men will definitely be part of the MCU in the future. Now despite that news, I’m not going to be talking about my thoughts on it at this time. I already did that back in 2015 (yes, this it really has been that long) and you can read my full thoughts here. Instead, I kinda just want to discuss this particular team in general for a bit. This post will probably be somewhat of a rambly mess because I actually don’t have any clear idea of what I want to talk about as I’m writing this, but here goes nothing! (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here. So I saw this movie a few weeks ago but just haven’t really found the time to review it until now. So here’s probably the last review of this movie you’ll see on the internet for a while hehe. Anyways, non spoiler thoughts? I think I like this movie better then the first one, but my reasoning is slightly biased as I’ll explain a bit more in this review. If you liked the first film, you’ll love this one. It’s just as funny, has more characters, and has a more interesting story to it. So now that that’s done, leggo! SPOILER WARNINGas per usual. (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! This might be the first time I’ve ever reviewed one of these streaming shows. I wanted to review season 1 of Jessica Jones forever ago but just didn’t. However, the season 1 finale of Marvel’s Runaways just concluded today and I’ve never wanted to talk about a show more! Spoiler-free opinion? It’s awesome! Go watch it!!! Only major criticism is that the season is less Marvel’s “Runaways” and more so Marvel’s “Hideaways”, and I’ll get more into that in the actual review. Also, Karolina is indeed gay in this for those of you who cares. Ok, from here on out SPOILER WARNING!!!!!! You have been warned! (And seriously, if you haven’t seen the show yet please do not read this review.) (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! My first Pride Month special! I’ve always meant to do one of these but every time I found the time to do one Pride Month was over and I didn’t really want to do a Pride Month special if it wasn’t during Pride. I also wanted to get this out on the 26th since that marked the second anniversary of gay marriage being legalized in all 50 states in America, but I got busy on a Youth retreat and thus didn’t have the time to complete this. Maybe in future years I’ll be able to create a tradition of releasing a Pride special every year on June 26th but don’t get your hopes up. Enough beating around the bush, this list consists of my Top 10 Favorite characters in comics or comic book adaptations that identify as LGBT. Leggo!
Hello interweb, Nate here! So here’s another top 10 list! This time: superhero teams! If you’re familiar with my blog, number #1 shouldn’t surprise you; but how about the rest? Let’s just jump into it and find out!
Hello interweb, Nate here! So this is somewhat old news at this point so I apologize for the lateness but I was debating over this post in the first place. I talk about it more at the end of this article so if you want to hear more about the potentially new direction this blog is going to be taking, please go below for yourself. In the meantime, apparently, Disney has it’s first openly gay character! (more…)
Hello interweb, Nate here! Yeesh, first my last post and now this. This blog is getting too gay! All jokes aside, quite recently Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds suggested that he would be hopeful for Deadpool to get a boyfriend in the sequel Deadpool 2 since Wade is canonically considered “pansexual” in the comics and I wanted to talk about this when it was first announced but it was such a minor piece of news that I didn’t really bother covering it. However, a few hours ago Greg Weisman, co-creator of Young Justice, recently stated that there are LGBT characters in Young Justice and it’s possible they may come out in season 3. So with two announcements of possibly more LGBT characters in comic book cartoons and movies, I figured I could share my 2 cents on this and maybe next time I can cover something a little less gay lol.
Side note: I’d really appreciate it if you guys would check out the last post I did do since it actually didn’t get as many views as I was hoping for and I really like the project that I’m working on. (more…)
Hello 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.
Hello interweb, Nate here! So recent news broke out where Greg Rucka, the writer of the current Wonder Woman comics, has confirmed in an interview that Wonder Woman was…interested and had romantic relationships with women! Yeah, he really didn’t place an official label on her as being “gay” or “bisexual” but he pretty much confirmed that Wonder Woman is at least queer. So is this a win for LGBT peoples everywhere or another attempt at forced diversity? (more…)
