Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Like many, I was stunned when Boseman died so unexpectedly, and I did not envy Marvel at all with the difficult job they had ahead of them. Recast a legend? Lose a powerful, influential character that so many look up to? There was, and still isn’t, a right answer there.

Black Adam

Comics have been around a long time now. Some of the original characters are closing in on eighty years of history, if not longer. The ones who have stuck around have, as a rule, have their histories rewritten, their personalities and motivations changed. Black Adam’s history began with his first appearance back in 1945, and…

An overview of the Justice Society of America

There are a lot of different expectations for the Black Adam movie, which comes out in the United States on October 21, 2022.

In my opinion, essential viewing before this one is WandaVision, with Spider-Man: No Way Home and the first Doctor Strange movie very helpful to understanding many of the references.

Moon Knight: Summon the Suit

Now we’ve met this incarnation of Steven Grant, and gotten at least a glimpse of Marc Spector, Moon Knight, and Khonshu. We’ve met Arthur Harrow, a very unusual villain, and gotten an idea of the problems facing all of them.

Morbius

After several delays, Sony’s Morbius finally made it into the theater. After even more delays, I got a chance to see it. The really short version of this review is that it’s good, but not great. For a bit more in depth commentary, read on.
