6 Super-Animals Who Deserve a Spot on the Pet Avengers

The trailer for the Hit-Monkey cartoon on Hulu arrived on the internet this week and I had a realization: what about all of the other super-pets who don’t have their own cartoon? Super-pets are a hot topic these days. DC Comics is working on an entire super-pets cartoon, featuring the voice talents of Dwayne Johnson. DC takes very good care of their super-pets. But what about Marvel? Sure, the Pet Avengers exist…but are they really as all-encompassing as they could be?

As if you didn’t believe they existed

This led to a deep dive into the super-animals at Marvel Comics. The Pet Avengers feature such luminaries as Lockjaw, Redwing, Throg, Lockheed and even Aunt May’s pet dog for some reason. But those animals only scratch the surface of the critters that exist at Marvel and are due their shot! The Pet Avengers need their own animated movie — possibly with the voice talents of John Cena? — and here are some super-animals who deserve a spot on the lineup.

Join me after the jump for six other animal-heroes at Marvel that should be the New Pet Avengers!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/18/21

Welcome to another pile of comic book reviews! Not too many this week, because sometimes I’m feeling lazy and just want to read the comics I want to read instead of a larger smattering. Such is this week’s mood.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #11 for turning the action and reveals up to 11 and kicking the story forward right when it needs it!

The Omega Megazord is gonna be a huge reveal someday

Meanwhile, I’ve been playing No Man’s Sky lately and it’s pretty fun. I never attempted to play it back when it first came out and was not part of the hype. But it was on sale on my birthday and that seemed like a good thing for to try. Should be a fun, lazy game of space exploration.

Comic Reviews: Power Rangers #11, Superman and the Authority #3 and X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #2.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/11/21

Oh what a week, what a week. Where does one even begin? How about by just diving into some comic reviews, like Batman and a new Black Manta series? Sounds good to me!

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin #11 because this comic can do no wrong. Holy cow is this good drama and good storytelling!

Ah, so you’ve been reading Mighty Morphin

Meanwhile, I did finally get around to watch Centaurworld on Netflix. That show was a hoot and a half! Not much else going on with me right now. I’m playing some old video games and trying to find some new, interesting shows to watch. Just livin’ that 2021 lifestyle…

Comic Reviews: Batman #112, Black Manta #1, Champions #9 and Mighty Morphin #11.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/4/21

Boy howdy, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was a lot of fun and it’s good to have another Marvel movie under our belts! Expect my review/thoughts on Wednesday, like usual! Other than that, this was an oddly light week for me, with only a couple of DC Comics to enjoy.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Static: Season One #3 for an all-around really good comic book.

Needs a coat?

Meanwhile, to reiterate, I really enjoyed Shang-Chi and look forward to going again in a couple of weeks when the theater will be less crowded. That should be fun! And not that you have to do anything, but my birthday is on Monday. Just letting you know.

Comic Reviews: Batman: Fear State Alpha #1, Static: Season One #3 and Wonder Girl #3.

Top 6 Comic Book Martial Artists (Not Named Shang-Chi)

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is only a day away for yours truly! I can’t wait! Word has it that the martial arts action in this movie is going to be off the chain! Who doesn’t love a good martial arts action movie? Who doesn’t love a good martial arts action superhero?

Appearing soon on the big screen

To celebrate the new movie, I’ve decided to list a bunch of other awesome martial arts characters in comics. Obviously, a ton of characters know how to fight and do martial arts. Batman is one of the world’s best fighters in the DC Universe. So this list is specifically for characters whose whole schtick is being a martial arts master. That is their general aesthetic. And I think I’ve picked out some pretty good ones!
