Just when we had gotten used to having Spider-Man home with his fellow heroes and saving the world in the MCU… he’s gone as quick as a Thanos snap.
Similar to Ant-Man and The Wasp, this MCU adventure had to follow up to a massive ensemble Avengers event. While it wasn’t the best adventure, it was entertaining to hold fans until Endgame. After Avengers: Endgame, where does one of the most beloved and youngest MCU go from here? Vacation. But when you are an Avenger, there is no suchContinue reading “‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is an emotional and satisfying European adventure.”
In the 1990’s, I grew up watching X-Men: The Animated Series. I ran around my parents’ living room, emulating my favorite character, Wolverine, as I immersed myself into the colorful world of these individuals and their adventures.

Despite his similarities to DC’s boy scout mascot, Shazam! is not one of the most well-known superheros from the world of DC Comics.

Aquaman has never been the strongest or well-received superhero in DC comics. I mean, come on; a guy who can swim and talk to sea animals?

With an entertaining but ludicrous story and good old fashioned fun, Aquaman hasContinue reading “‘Aquaman’ makes a splash in bright and entertaining seas.”

In 2004, Disney/Pixar kicked off their own superhero story with the animated classic, The Incredibles. The 1960’s retro style animated film had it all: colorful, relatable characters, wonderful storytelling, and a Silver-Age Fantastic Four–style and family message that everyone, no matter the age, could relate to. After that, fans who grew up watching the first one eagerly anticipatedContinue reading “‘Incredibles 2’ is worth the 14 year wait”
Last year, comic book and movie fans were witness to Wonder Woman, the iconic hero and first superhero movie with a female as the lead character.
