The future, as described in this newest film, is bleak at best. Mutants and humans alike are all but extinct and only the X-Men can rise to the challenge. As humanity’s last hope, Logan must travel five decades into the past to prevent this horrifying future from ever taking place.
This is now my most favorite X-Men movie EVER! Fox has done a wonderful job saving this franchise with its newest installment.

Brief flashbacks could’ve been used instead of entire sequences. This pretty much muddled up the story line for me. Continue reading “Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review”
It’s been a “Superior” year-plus, but Peter Parker is now home righting the wrongs of the Green Goblin and picking up the pieces of “SpOck’s” life. The series finale moves at a brisk pace re-establishing Parker into the Marvel Universe. Part of me dreads that we’re going back to Pathetic Pete’s mundane “power and responsibility” routine. Spoilers for the “Goblin Nation” 40-page conclusion ahead in this review!Continue reading “Sticking Around After 31 Issues of Superior Spider-Man For… This?”
One of my favorite bits of trivia about pro wrestler Hulk Hogan is that for many years, Marvel Comics was the owner of the name “Hulk Hogan.” I derinitely noticed the credit to Marvel on some WWF merchandise I had.
