Peter Parker: The Relatable One

From billboards in New York’s Times Square to toy stores, book shelves and even music stores, Marvel Comics’ flagship character seems to be everywhere as fans await the latest Spider-Man movie. However, Spider-Man’s enduring popularity has little to do with his ability to climb walls, his super-human strength, or his somewhat creepy-yet-cool costume. Fans have […]

Ultron: The Rise of Rogue AI

Ultron walks into a bar, and orders a drink. The bartender says, “We don’t serve robots!”. Ultron replies, “You will.” Artificial intelligence (AI) is a reliable theme in science fiction. In the Avengers: Age of Ultron, the AI arises from one of several alien Infinity Stones, with a bit of dabbling by Tony Stark and […]

Marvel Ranked – Your definitive guide to each and every film

It’s your definitive ranked guide to Marvel’s filmography, starting at the beginning of Phase 1 in 2008 with Iron Man, all the way through to Doctor Strange released this year.

Superman: Our Jewish Hero

Superman’s real name is Kal-El, son of Jor-El. The suffix El means “of God” in Hebrew, with Kal-El defined as “Voice of God”. Before Krypton’s doom, Kal-El’s parents put him in a Moses-like basket, sending him down the Nile of intergalactic space until he landed safely on Earth. Superman and Moses relied on their faith […]

V for Vendetta: Terrorism Justified??

In thinking my next idea for writing I wanted to a full length Alan Moore article and then thought better of it because his body of work is astonishing. What I will do is break down some of his finest works ever and hope that you appreciate him as much as I do. The first […]

A Batman Family Secret?

I know, I know this isn’t worth my time to read. The writer is just making up a bullshit theory blah, blah, blah. Give me 10 minutes of your time and let me explain. For 80 years, Batman and Joker have punched and laughed their way into the greatest rivalry in comics. This have been […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
