Everything Wrong With: Fans Decide! (My Christmas Present to You!)

Hello interweb, Nate here!  Ever sense I did my Everything Wrong With: “Spider-man: One More Day”, I’ve heard people seem to enjoy my SuperheroSins series.  So since I haven’t been keeping up with this blog due to college and Christmas break is almost up, I figured I’ll whip up one of these as a Christmas special to you guys!  So here I let you guys decide!  Comment below or email me at sablikid626@gmail.com to suggest a graphic novel or storyline you want me to review and I’ll pick my favorite choice to sin!  Any graphic novel is fair game, even if it’s a good one!  Granted, bad stories are more fun to tear apart and make fun of, but good stories can fit the format decently well.  The graphic novel in question must be from Marvel or DC comics and be roughly 4-6 issues long (not doing any giant stories here).  You can request multiple stories if you really want but keep in mind that I’m only picking one.  I’ll mostly determine the one I pick based on how much fun I can have tearing it apart.  Meaning potentially lots of cliches, plot holes, continuity errors, characters acting out of character, etc.  If you’ve read my previous SuperheroSins than you probably already know the deal here.  With that said, peace out and have a happy holidays!

Avengers: Infinity Wars – First Trailer!!!

Hello interweb, Nate here!  Considering that this video already has 14 million views at the time of this writing, you’ve probably already seen this trailer already.  So me telling you that the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer is out would be redundant.  However, it’s still pretty awesome that this thing is out!  Just like my last post, this won’t be a formal Review and Explain segment.  I really wish I had the time to give this trailer the attention it deserves, but college is technically more important that Marvel movies (technically).  So, you get this instead!  I’ll just discuss the highlights here and my thoughts on the trailer as a whole.

The New Mutants First Trailer Dropped and I’m Kinda Confused

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I have barely touched this blog in a very long time.  Unfortunately, college has been eating away at my time more than high school ever did.  When I do have free time I’m doing other activities instead of writing.  Kind of a shame too.  I’ve been really wanting to get my review of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 out, just haven’t found the time to start the damn thing.  However, the first New Mutants trailer dropped last night and being the major X-Men fan I am I wanted to get my thoughts out there.  Usually in trailer reviews I take a trailer and analyze it bit by bit.  Not this time.  I would, but I just don’t have the time to dedicate to a formal Review and Explain segment.  So you’re stuck with this little post.

Top 10 Favorite LGBT Characters – Pride Month Special

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!

Do we Want More R-Rated Superhero Movies? – Discussion

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So I recently decided to clean up my blog a little.  The categories that I put all my posts in where kinda everywhere and I had a lot of random old junk posts that weren’t doing anything but making this place cluttery.  So I deleted a lot of old posts that nobody was reading (mostly because they where old and dumb) and reorganized the categories a bit.  This has little to do with this actual post but I did want to introduce a semi-new category: discussions!  These posts are meant to do exactly what it says.  I bring up a topic, briefly (or as briefly as possible) give my current opinions on the topic, and let you guys comment below with your thoughts and maybe we can have a little dialogue over it.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be a long drawn-out conversation either.  I respond to all comments I get on this blog so if you decide to leave a comment below and I respond you can decide for yourself whether to continue the conversation or not!  With all that said and done, let’s get this idea off the ground!

X-23 – Character Bio

x-23Hello interweb, Nate here.  So with Logan coming out in a few days and the cinematic debut of my personal favorite X-Men, X-23, I thought I should get a character bio up for this chick sooner then later.  So with that this will be a somewhat special Character Bio since I want to give my opinions of X-23 being featured in Logan prior to seeing the movie so that will be near the end of this Bio.

X-Men (2000) – Review

x-men-2000Hello interweb, Nate here!  So I claim to be such a huge X-Men fan and yet I’ve only seen X-Men: Days of Future’s Past and X-Men: Apocalypse, and I believe I’ve only reviewed the later on here.  (I would give it a quick review but that movie was so forgettable I’d have to rewatch it first.)  Hopefully, I’ll be able to watch and review X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: First Class sooner than later but I don’t know when that’ll be so no promises.  With all that out of the way, let’s get to the review!  Also, not sure whether this is necessary for a 17 year old movie, but SPOILER WARNING just to be on the safe side.

Everything Wrong With: “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe”

deadpool-kills-the-marvel-universeHello interweb, Nate here!  So I don’t like Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe.  It’s not nearly as bad as Spider-man: One More Day but it’s still pretty bad in my opinion.  That’s an unpopular opinion, it seems, but I still don’t really care for it.  So since you guys enjoyed my last SuperheroSins I figure I’d try it again!  Next time I’ll try a DC comic.  So let’s begin!

Disclaimer: I do not own Deadpool or this comic.  All rights belong to Marvel Comics

Deadpool “The Never-Ending Struggle” – Review

deadpool-vol-4-20Hello interweb, Nate here!  So when you hear “Deadpool”, does serious issues like suicide come to mind?  I doubt it, and yet that’s exactly what we get in Deadpool #20!  I wanted to highlight this specific issue because I fell in love with it the second I read it and I actually decided to go out and buy a physical copy to own (I read most of my comics online since it’s cheaper).
