I’ve been a big fan of the animated Star Wars cartoons, even if I was hesitant to get into either Clone Wars or Rebels. I liked them both in the end. So the fact that I’m a touch leery about this first trailer for Star Wars: Resistance is probably a good sign.
I’ve never been a particular fan of that animation style. If the Resistance team wanted to go for a more anime look — which I think they’ve said — they should have gone the Voltron route, with traditional anime characters and then computer animated ships. I think that’d be a great look for Star Wars.
I’m also not 100% sold on this story, where the young, white, male protagonist is both a racing superstar and a hotshot Rebel pilot. But like I said, I was trepidatious about Rebels, so we’ll see!
So I own Avengers: Infinity War now. That’s something, right? Comic book-related? Ah, what do I know, let’s get to the reviews! Iron Man! Multiple Man! Batman!
Comic Book of the Week was a tough call, but I’m going to give it to the latest issue of Batman. Writer Tom King delivers a treatise on Batman’s fallibility, and that speaks to me, as he wraps up his Bruce Wayne on jury duty bit.
And the new issue of Dan Slott’s Iron Man wasn’t as amazing as the previous two issues, so Batman edges it out just a little bit.
Meanwhile, the Multiple Man Marvel Legends action figure has arrived in my crummy little apartment. I own this thing. At long last. After blog rants and hoop dreams (Google the phrase ‘Multiple Man action figure’ and my blog shows up twice), I finally own this piece of treasured memorabilia. It’s great!
Comic Reviews: Batman #53, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #30, Multiple Man #3, Thor #4 and Tony Stark – Iron Man #3.
Avengers: Infinity War came out on DVD this week, so of course the internet was awash in Avengers-related videos and articles and whatnot. That’s how the internet works nowadays. And if I had any skill whatsoever, I would have done something too, instead of randomly talking about Venom instead.
But speaking of Avengers: Infinity War, how about an Honest Trailer?
Gotta love those things! They’re the bread and butter of the internet.
But how about I do you one better and deliver an 8-bit recreation of the Avengers vs. Thanos fight!
That was put together by those fine folks at Mr. Sunday Movies, a favorite vlogger of mine.
Gotta love all this neat Avengers stuff! Good way to kill some minutes in the day!
Iron Fist season 2 comes out the week of my birthday, so I’m assuming it’s Netflix’s gift to me. I was fine with season 1 and didn’t dislike it to the extent most people did, so I remain somewhat hopeful about season 2. I have also been largely disappointed in most of the Netflix Defenders shows at this point, but i remain somewhat hopeful about season 2.
All of this looks fine. Davos should make for a good villain, especially if they go full Steel Serpent with the guy. And the fight scenes are supposed to be improved.
Why they haven’t gone full Tournament of Heaven with this Iron Fist series is beyond me. Brubaker and Faction gave you a perfect Iron Fist story! Make it!
It’s a good time to be a Multiple Man fan, let me tell you. Not only is there a comic coming out called ‘Multiple Man’ for the first time in history, but he’s also apparently going to be a big player in the upcoming Uncanny X-Men title revival.
The cover of Uncanny X-Men #2 was revealed on Wednesday, along with an interview with writer Kelly Thompson.
You’ll notice again that Jamie Madrox has the ‘M’ tattoo over his eye, indicating that this could be Madrox Prime, and not the dupe that’s currently starring in the Multiple Man comic.
So consider me definitely getting my hopes up at this point that Madrox Prime is coming back to life somehow, and he’ll be a player in Uncanny X-Men.
I’m also willing to believe that Marvel would just kill him over again just to spite me.
The Madrox cover is a take on the cover of Uncanny X-Men #1, which possibly features the roster for the team. We’ll find out in November!
