“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” Well, nobody’s reported me dead but I just looked up and realized that I haven’t posted here in months so people might have been growing concerned. So, I am well. Oh, you want to know more? Like “Where the heck is Capes?” Capes has been delayed by … More I Am Well.
“Let the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad before the Lord, for He comes.” I don’t often speak of my faith. Not because I feel pressure not to, even in these times of “culture war” (and I really hate that phrase), but because I have a wide readership. I am a member of the … More A Merry Christmas To All.

Soooo. She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’s first season is over, with quit the final episode, too. And what’s my verdict? Well . . . I give it 3 out of 5 stars. And yes, this puts me at odds with Marvel fans on both sides, the fans (and writers) who have been boosting SHAAL as a … More Hulking Out

No, really, what was that?” Let’s talk about the humor, first. Obligatory Spoiler Alert L&T … More I Don’t Love the Thunder

So I’ve seen Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness. And overall it was good. I enjoyed it (see my comments on the Wearing the Cape Facebook Group page). But . . . I don’t think I like where the MCU is going and MOM is only the latest example of the problem. Hear me out. … More It’s Madness, I tells you! Madness!
