“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
Samaritan is a fun superhero yarn. In superhero comics, you can’t look too close at the underlying logic; if you do, you lose suspension of disbelief needed to immerse yourself in the story. In Samaritan, you’re given a quick history you can’t look at too closely. Two brothers, who John (Stallone) describes as “genetic freaks” … More The Good Samaritan

Not that I spent a whole lot of emotional energy on it, but I really loved She-Hulk in the comics when I discovered her during John Byrne’s fantastic run. JB’s She-Hulk was comedy gold. She-Hulk was the “Anti-Hulk.” She … More Don’t Hulk on She-Hulk
I just came from Love and Thunder, and while parts of it made me laugh (and parts of it were comedy genius), as something of an MCU Thor-fan, I feel dirty. Also as a writer I’m simply “What was that? No, really, what was that?” Let’s talk about the humor, first. Obligatory Spoiler Alert L&T … More I Don’t Love the Thunder

I wasn’t expecting that much from it; something as actiony and intermittently lighthearted as Hawkeye, perhaps. I was pleasantly surprised. Ms. Marvel is “the … More Don’t Miss this Marvel!
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!
Wow, a second “serious” blog post in just one week! This one’s inspired by what’s going on right now (Ukraine, of course). I’m not about to try and predict how all of this will end, but only ask that you pray for Ukraine as its people suffer in the crucible of war. But I said … More Heroes Without Borders
