Sympathy for the Devil: Daredevil and Depression

Sympathy for the Devil: Daredevil and Depression

I could write a puff piece about Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) and tell you his background, creation, favourite books, TV show, etc... but I thought I would write something different though, something worth talking about even if it doesn't quite make everyone comfortable. Matt Murdock is a blind lawyer in Manhattan's Hells Kitchen section who, in his downtime, dons a scarlet suit and fights crime as Daredevil. Most are familiar with him at this point because of the amazing Netflix …
Console to Cinema - Halo

Console to Cinema - Halo

The world of gaming is hugely diverse and immersive from the cute and fun to dark and depressing there is a game out there for everyone. The amount of detailed story that the industry churns out on a yearly basis you’d expect the transition from console to cinema would be a smooth one, well it isn’t. Huge titles such as Halo and Metal Gear Solid have been expected to make their silver screen debut, but most seem to get stuck …
Heroic Ethics: Spider-Man, My Idol

Heroic Ethics: Spider-Man, My Idol

I wrote this in part for Kaylon Karrim and his inquisitive mind! A huge part of Anfield Index and a guy I call a friend. Looking back over the three categories of normative ethics under philosophy - Virtue, Duty and Consequential - what fails to emerge is a clear-cut, definitive category that encompasses what we think of when we think of a superhero. Each category has heroes who adhere to its principles but also is easy to criticize each category …
Supergirl: Another Dumb Blonde in Comics?

Supergirl: Another Dumb Blonde in Comics?

With the start of the Supergirl series, season two in fact, I thought I would focus on Superman's cousin. She is actually older than the Man of Steel which many don't realize. Most depictions of her are of a tiny doe-eyed blonde who most fan-boys can only dream of meeting! She's much more than just a fantasy for comic book fans. First appearing in Superman #123 in August of 1958 she was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino. Originally …
Marvel vs DC in cinema | A story of the Tortoise Vs the Hare

Marvel vs DC in cinema | A story of the Tortoise Vs the Hare

A war rages, two powerhouses of cinema are vying for your attention, both striving to outdo one another. Their aim, to win the hearts, minds and wallets of comic lovers the world over. Can the young pretender (DC Warner Brothers), wrestle the mantle from the experienced veteran (Disney Marvel)? Early signs point to no, but you can bet your life they'll throw everything at it. The key however is, will they do it wisely? Will they find financial and critical …
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 …
