Captain Marvel: Marvel's Big Gamble

Captain Marvel: Marvel's Big Gamble

When Marvel announced that Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel was going to get her own movie in 2019 I was ecstatic. After the initial shock at a female hero (Brie Larson will play the Captain) getting her own movie I wondered how they would explain Captain Marvel and all the varying versions. I will give you some background on Danvers (Marvel's movie choice for Captain Marvel) and the history behind this fantastic hero. Captain Marvel was created by Stan Lee and …
Luke Cage: Stereotype of a Black Man

Luke Cage: Stereotype of a Black Man

I thought for my next article I would write about a recently released Netflix series you may have heard of by the name of Luke Cage - not necessarily about the show but about a hot button talking point from the show and what it's based on. This new series coincides with one of Netflix's other popular shows Jessica Jones. Before I get into what I really wanted to talk about let me explain a little bit about Luke Cage and his …
The Source of Everything Speed

The Source of Everything Speed

With all of CW's new shows coming back I thought I wanted to do a Flash article. I thought otherwise because most at this point probably know the back story of the Flash. One of the most important heroes in DC lore for various reasons I thought I would touch on one of his most important aspects his Speed Force. The Speed Force is an energy field that grants all speedsters their power from Barry Allen and Wally West to …
For Honor Alpha - Medieval Magnificence?

For Honor Alpha - Medieval Magnificence?

In a genre dominated by shooters For Honor could potentially break the mould as the alpha has showed enough promise to keep my interest peaked. The genre of warfare games has been dominated by gaming dynasties such as COD, Battlefield and Halo but nothing has perfected the medieval sword and shield combat that would appeal to many. So let’s look at the game at that I feel could have a place for the famous phrase “FATALITY”. Answer me a question, …
Wakanda's Protector: Black Panther

Wakanda's Protector: Black Panther

Since he has a movie coming out in 2018 titled Black Panther and he was a big part of Marvel's Civil War I thought I would write about Black Panther aka T'Challa. Not to be confused with the Black Panther Party (his creation predated the Party by 3 months) and not influenced in any way when created despite popular belief. One of the most important characters to any comic universe lets talk about who I think is one of the …
The Scarlet Speedsters

The Scarlet Speedsters

The Flash is one of the most iconic, recognisable characters in all of comic book lore and is a founding member of the Justice League alongside DC superpowers such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. He has the ability to tap into a mystical energy source called “the speed force” which allows him superhuman speed, the ability to phase through objects and makes it possible to run across water and vertically up buildings to name just a few of his …
The Queen of Crazy: Harley Quinn

The Queen of Crazy: Harley Quinn

When I was debating what article to write next I thought that I would do a piece on the most popular person in comics right now one Harleen Frances Quinzel. Created for Batman's animated TV series, she was supposed to be just a minor character; a one-off almost. When the series started in 1992 creators Paul Dini and Bruce Timm were struggling to come up with a female character to use in an episode with the Joker - they thought …
The Battle of The Archers: Green Arrow vs Hawkeye

The Battle of The Archers: Green Arrow vs Hawkeye

I've tried to pit alike heroes against one another here. One from DC and one from Marvel but both worthy of an epic battle because of their similarities. Lets dive in and see who comes out on top in this fight. I'll start with Oliver Jonas Queen aka Green Arrow. In his everyday life he is a billionaire businessman and owner of Queen Industries somewhat the same story as Bruce Wayne (Batman). He is a local celeb in Star City …
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) versus Martian Manhunter

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) versus Martian Manhunter

In this latest installment of versus Hal Jordan (the best Green Lantern in one man's opinion) will take on Mars' finest - J'onn J'onzz aka Martian Manhunter. Two founding members of the Justice League of America!! I wanted to explain a little behind the Green Lantern's powers before I started. It's important to know about the Green Lantern ring and its power source. The rings all Lantern's use is powered by a Power Battery, which in most cases takes the …
Nostalgia: Jurassic Park Movie Review

Nostalgia: Jurassic Park Movie Review

With great monsters comes great responsibility. Or something like that? Paraphrasing from one of the most famous lines in fictional adventure, I’ve gone all upside down and inside out and, sorry to disappoint you, but I’m almost definitely talking about dinosaurs here, not spiders. Or men. Sorry about that. No Spiderman here. In 1994 what could be expected of a film was much different than what would be expected now. Back then, the focal point of a film would be physical, …
