Five Characters Marvel Midnight Suns Should Add

So with Marvel Midnight Suns, we have another great-looking Marvel game. It’s made by Firaxis, the developers behind XCom, the popular tactical sci-fi role-playing series. They’re known not only for their deep turn-based strategy combat but also for their punishing permadeath and RPG mechanics. While we shouldn’t expect to see permadeath with Marvel superheroes, we […]

When Should a Superhero Reveal Their Secret Identity?

There’s a staple of superhero mythos that’s been around since the dawn of superhero comics. Something that doesn’t have a real-life equivalent, outside of being a spy, maybe. This makes it difficult to discern its morality even in context. This thing is the secret identity. The name heroes go by during their regular daily life […]

Why Ostrander’s Spectre is a Tragic Hero

The Spectre is an underrated favorite character of mine. Almost as old as Superman, he first appeared in 1940. He was even made by the same writer, Jerry Spiegel, with a co-credit from one Bernard Baily.  He has a storied history, playing a significant role in many of its events, particularly in Crisis on Infinite […]

DC vs Mortal Kombat 2?!

Should Square Enix Make an X-Men Game?

So Marvel’s Avengers has been out a while, and I think it’s pretty good. It could be worse, could be better, could still use an actual road map. Basically it’s just a four player co-op game about the Avengers. It has pretty fun combat, a pretty good story, and a terrible loot system. It’s better than […]

Superman Should Smash Racism

So originally I was gonna write a review about “Superman Smashes the Klan,” by Gene Luen Yang, with art from Guruhiru, and that book alone. But I’m not. I did make a video version of this piece though. The book is amazing, it’s actually broken into my top five favorite comic book stories of all […]

My Problem with Black Panther (As a Black Man)

Let me first say, I am black. I’m not some white guy talking about how Black Panther and Wakanda are unrealistic or made to pander to black people. You know, the things true of every white superhero.  But people aren’t ready to hear that. My problem stems from Black Panther’s place in pop culture with […]

DC vs Marvel NetherRealm Game?

Okay, I’m not gonna lie, being completely honest here… I only got the idea for this article after watching Bilbzy’s video for a DC vs Marvel roster would be. Check out the video version of my article here. He said what changes we would make and who we would switch out, and it gave me […]

Justice League: The Snyder Cut Review

It’s finally here. The long awaited, the long rumored, the speculated and the dreamed, the Snyder Cut. Video version on YouTube here. Okay, eccentrics aside, we have every reason to be shocked this movie exists. What were the odds that we would ever get to see this cut? Next to none, and honestly, I believe […]
