With episode 4 of Legends of Tomorrow the stride has finally been hit Though for this viewer it was more a sudden understanding of what the CW was trying to accomplish that chaged my perspective of the show dramatically. If you have read my reviews of the first three episodes you know I have been both critical and praising of the show but this episode changes everything. And by changes I mean the name of the game.

To make a show primarily focused on time travel is a difficult thing when you rely on the headiness of the plot to anchor the viewer rather than the emotional bonds of less intricately plotted shows. One of the easiest ways to do this however involves making the time periods relevant and interesting enough to tell more self-contained stories within the larger. But with Legends, as we have discussed, there is a serious piece missing from the series, even more than last season’s freshman run. You see, the best parts of the CW superhero lineup on the other nights of the week is the deep thematic approach that is not taken here and those themes tend to make us emotionally connected to them.

Back when I was young and sifting through my older brother’s comic collection, I used to stumble upon this quirky book called Suicide Squad. I’m not even sure I knew what “suicide” even meant at the time, but none of the characters at the time seemed very appealing to me. You had one guy with an all silver mask and a red eye, a guy that dressed like a cast member from Cats, a witch in every sense of the word...pointy hat and all, a weird guy dressed as a flight attendant and then, one character that I immediately recognized: THE PENGUIN! Of course now I know those other characters as Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Captain Boomerang and Enchantress. Read more...

rocketeer2In this day of block buster Super Movie at our fingertips, coming out about every 3 months, it is hard to believe it hasn't always been this way. The horrible, awful fact is it hasn't. There was a time not more than a couple of decades (think 90's) when getting to watch ANY super hero movie was a treat. We didn't care if it was on TV or at the movies, we got to see our heroes on a screen. There wasn't the tech that we have today back then, and there wasn't the care for the presentation that there is now. Obviously Superman was a perfect vehicle that had both to make one of, if not the greatest Super hero movie of all time. Superman was the exception, and everything else was either suspect or down right pitiful. That is kind of my focus this week. Most of the Old School products weren't good. BUT many weren't as bad as we think they are. Howard the Duck, yea that was just bad! Dolph Lundgren's Punisher..Yea really bad, but the movies on this list? Yea some of it was still bad, but you know what? They weren't that bad. Let's get started.   Read more...

Usagi_linkIt’s the one weekend of the year when the cutest, fuzziest animal of them all, the BUNNY takes center stage! I’m talking Easter, of course! And whether you celebrate Easter or Passover, or neither...everyone can agree...bunnies are darn adorable, right? So, I decided why not do something wacky and talk about the bunnies that have been in various comics over the years?! There’s more than you think, so hear me out. So, let’s put on our best bunny ears and cotton tails (ladies, you are welcome to send me your pics of that) and get ready for what may be the strangest Bleed of them all! Read more...

Amazing-Spider-Man-1-variant-cover-April-2014-no-logoSo, it’s official! The original AMAZING, friendly neighborhood, ever-lovin’ Spider-Man will be back in April. Some fans are elated to see Peter Parker back in control of his body, and some prefer the darker, edgier Superior Spider-Man. It doesn’t really matter which Spidey floats your boat, it’s HOW they will resurrect Pete that really matters doesn’t it? Fans are sort of tired of the “comic book death” scenario...basically because it’s so predictable. I mean, it’s usually the same old story: hero dies, hero is temporarily replaced, hero somehow comes back. Wash, rinse, repeat. It’s how it is ALWAYS done. Sometimes though, a superhero or even a villain, is brought back and their triumphant return is sensible, entertaining and well, just plain bad-assed. In celebration of Pete’s AMAZING return, I will take a look at examples of comic book resurrections that were done right, and of course the ones that were just, let’s say...not all that necessary.
