I don’t make it a secret. I’m a huge X-Men fan. Have been my whole life. Ever since first seeing the team’s guest appearance on the Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends cartoon when I was very young, I was very enamoured by the team. At first it was the original Beast that caught my eye. A superhero with huge, goofy ape feet? Crazy! Weird! I loved the originality. Then it was me “stealing” my big brother’s Uncanny X-Men comics from his stash (even though I was too young to even know how to read) and seeing these lavish, out-there costumes and characters that in any other superhero story would probably be the villains. Nightcrawler, Rogue, Storm (with the mohawk, of course), Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Summers....and of course, Wolverine. They were so cool beyond words. They were edgy and gritty and never ever got a break in the world, but that never stopped them from being heroes. I was born without the ability to walk and I identified with these heroes who were also born a little different. Their leader was in a wheelchair. I was and will be bonded to the X-Men forever.

The superhero era of movies has a lot to thank Hugh Jackman and his portrayal of Wolverine for, when you think about it. The first X-Men movie in 2000 was a massive hit and Hugh’s portrayal of the adamantium clawed, stogey smoking, hairy Canadian was a big part of that success. As a diehard fan of the X-Men comics and Wolverine being my favorite superhero of them all...he wasn’t a perfect comic accurate Logan by any sense of the word. He was too tall, too young, too good looking...not stalky enough...not “Canadian” enough. When I first read that they had casted an AUSTRALIAN in the role I nearly threw up in fear it was the failed 80’s X-Men cartoon pilot all over again. Read more...

A few months back, I (alongside my friend Mike), went back to my old Junior High School for a day of wondering the halls, checking out our old classrooms and doing a great deal of "Remember When...". And what was the special occasion, you might ask? Ramay Junior High School was having a special Open House Day in honor of the school's Fiftieth Anniversary. Read more...

FX’s Legion is indeed a part of Fox’s X-Men movie universe, but you probably wouldn’t know it from the series’ pilot. Don’t expect Storm or Wolverine, Magneto or Rogue...or even your new favorite, Deadpool to show up. Read more...

So, I recently have been (in the middle of waiting for a Marvel fix in between Daredevil season 2 and Luke Cage), loading my Netflix list with a plethora of classic (and some recent) Marvel cartoon shows. And like I did ever since I was a kid, I just fell in love and re-fell in love with almost all of them. Do you remember what your first Marvel cartoon was? Did it make you a fan for life? Did it make you interested in the comic it was adapted from? It was meant to. For generations Saturday morning or afternoon cartoons were the vehicles for comic companies to gain interest in their characters (before live action movies). Read more...

Do you wanna rock? Well I do! There have been quite a few rock & roll acts to grace the pages of mainstream comics, some are real artists (like Prince, Alice Cooper, KISS and even Run DMC) who had their own comic series, but there have also been so many FICTIONAL rock bands that we so wish here the real deal. I’ve decided to share, as the music festivals of summer begin to become an every weekend occurrence, to honor those bands from the pages of our favorite comics that we wish we could actually add to our playlists!

Legacy in comics is important. Legacy in all epic fictional sagas is VERY important. Just look at the response of Star Wars: The Force Awakens compared to let’s say...the new Ghostbusters remake so far. Force Awakens was all about continuing the story we all grew up with, at the same time as adding an excellent cast of new and exciting 2nd generation characters that will keep the adventures in a galaxy far, far away going strong. Ghostbusters is a whole new reboot of a story that many feel is a cheap remake of a movie that still to this day holds up for many of us. If they were to make this movie with the all-female cast of new characters that are the daughters or protégées of the original Ghostbusters, well, I bet more fans would enjoy that. Read more...

Well, I guess by now the cat’s out of the bag! We are definitely getting a sequel to the hottest superhero movie so far of 2016, Deadpool! And not only that, in the end-credits scene Deadpool himself informs us that his cyborg from the future BFF Cable will appear in the sequel! If that didn’t make us all “squee”, nothing will!
