The 4th season of agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has indeed been all over the place, but it’s been (arguably) the best one the show has ever done, and without any blatant connections to a Marvel Studios film. Sure there was Daisy Johnson’s Sokovia Accords hearing and Jeff Mace/The Patriot’s fame he got from being an “accidental hero” during U.N. attack (both being events from Captain America: Civil War) and the introduction of the mysterious Darkhold, a mystical book that delves into the same territory as Doctor Strange, but for the most part this season of AoS basically ran on its own steam. And, thanks to the assist by Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider and the amazing job by the show’s special effects team, the series has been all the better for it. Read more...

Welcome back! Hope everyone had a good holiday season. It’s a new year, and with that comes the second half of Season 4 of AoS! The second portion of the season is titled L.M.D., which (in case you don’t read the comics) stands for Life Model Decoy. In comic lore, L.M.D.s are traditionally robotic decoys used by S.H.I.E.L.D. to trick their enemies and even their allies sometimes on missions. Nick Fury Sr. used to use them all the fact, we recently found out that he has used them A LOT more than we ever knew about and he’s been growing old and crazy in space for decades...we aren’t even sure if we’ve EVER truly seen the actual Fury in action over the past 5 decades of comics. If you are a Cinematic Universe only fan, you will remember Tony Stark mentioning he is not one when Coulson unexpectedly visits Stark Tower in the beginning of the first Avengers film. That was a cool little easter egg at the time, but now Agents has decided to make L.M.D.s a major storyline arc. Fun! Read more...

Last time on AoS, Coulson, Fitz and Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider found themselves as ghosts trapped in between realities. Able to be unseen by anything on this plain of existence, they found out things that even the best superspy couldn’t. Like that Robbie’s uncle Eli Morrow believes that he is creating matter out of nothing, a power given to him by the Darkhold, but in fact he is stealing elements from another dimension. Also, the new S.H.I.E.L.D. director Jeff Mace is helping anti-mutant senator Rona Nadeer free her loved one from his terrigenesis cocoon, which he “enlisted” Gemma Simmons to do (by essentially kidnapping her).

After a few weeks hiatus, we finally return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s super spy wing! Last we saw Coulson and the gang, they had discovered the truth behind the Bauers and Eli Morrow At Momentum Labs.  Turns out Momentum is owned by the evil corporation, Roxxon, and their matter creation research is derived from the Dark Matter investigated by Agent Carter in the 40’s (as seen in the second season of her series). The scientists were using the Darkhold (a book with mystical origins) to create what they “think” is carbon, but actually a substance from another dimension. Turns out it wasn’t Lucy and Joseph that were the bad guys at all, but Eli himself has turned evil by the Dark Matter and he’s the one that turned Lucy into an apparition and beat Joseph into a coma.

Woo! Lots to talk about this week. AoS has been a rollercoaster over the past 3 seasons, but sometimes, just sometimes this show gives me EXACTLY what I want out of a weekly prime time action/drama series set within the Marvel Universe. This week’s episode made me smile as a fan of comics and superheroes. So damn much. Read more...

Aquaman Annual #2 & Ghost Rider #5 20140731-203213-73933397Everybody yell, “TEAM-UP!” DC may often produce huge collaborations of your favourite superheroes and villains, from issues of Justice League, Justice League of America, Doom Patrol or even events such as the recent Multiversity, Forever Evil and classics like Crisis on Infinite Earths. A team-up issue, where two characters pair off to fight a threat bigger than them but not that big they require a full super-team, has often been more of Marvel’s forte – but not exclusively. DC have always made a point of showcases some of the greatest buddy titles or ‘odd couple’ combinations such as Green Lantern/Green Arrow, Superman/Batman and, as this review shows, Aquaman/Wonder Woman. Another unusual team-up, so to speak, is that of Ghost Rider. Even though he or she is often an individual character, the main protagonist is possessed by the demon, Zarathos; a creature plagued to walk the Earth righting the wrongs of those unable to do so their self.   Read more...
