It was excitingly inevitable that we would get a sequel to the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I really do think the animated feature is my favorite of all the many Spider-Man movies. It was just a brilliant use of the character, exploring the meaning of being a hero with verve, wit, flashy animation and pretty much perfect everything.
So what can we expect to see in a sequel to something so expansive and creative as Into the Spider-Verse? There are some obvious answers, especially considering that tease at the end of the movie. And obviously we’ll probably see all of the main characters back for another go around. But surely with the Spider-Verse foundation built, we’re going to go bigger and wilder when the movie arrives in 2022.
Join me after the jump for some ideas and characters I’d like to see in the big, hopefully bombastic sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse!
Happy Halloween, henchies! And welcome to another spooktacular List of Six! Who doesn’t love some good, holiday-themed internet nonsense? I know I do! I’ve made it a bit of a habit, and it’s not one I intend to break anytime soon! This year, we’re doing pumpkins!
And you’re going to have to cut me a little slack, because there just aren’t very many pumpkin characters in comics. I’ve wanted to do pumpkins for awhile, but it’s only with some suspension of disbelief that I’m going to pull this off. I’ve already done skeletons, witches, ghosts, classic movie monsters and Cerberus, the coolest of all mythical beasts. And then I went and wasted cats and bats on non-holiday lists. So we’re going to get a little choosy and go with pumpkins this year!

What’s the deal with putting the term “Captain” in front of superhero names to make them sound more important? I know Captain America and Captain Marvel started the trend, but what does it even signify? In almost all cases, it’s not a military rank or an honorary title. It might as well be an adjective the way some superheroes use it!
Once upon a time, I wrote a List of Six of a bunch of other famous comic book captains. There were more than enough to fill the list and beyond. And like all good lists, it deserves a second glance, because I’ve found even more comic book characters who randomly added the word ‘Captain’ to their name for no good reason! Perhaps it’s some sort of madness?
Either way, join me after the jump for another smattering of comic book characters with an inflated sense of self importance!
We all have grandparents! And hopefully they’re great! My last living grandparent, my maternal grandmother, just turned 100 this past year, and she’s always been great! All of my grandparents were awesome people and loving family.
So how about list of comic book grandchildren?
I know what you’re thinking: why not a List of Six about comic book grandparents? Because more often than not, those characters who are grandparents have a lot more going on. Being a grandparent is often just an ancillary thing for them. Whereas it’s far more rare to have comic book characters who are notably the grandchildren of already famous comic book characters. Because major characters never age in regular comics, so it’s just not often we get grandchildren.
I’ve managed to track down six comic book characters who are notably the grandchildren of already famous characters! Join me after the jump to see them all!
The Joker movie comes out this weekend! But there’s a problem: I already did a List of Six about comic book clowns who aren’t the Joker. So what am I supposed to do now? How about the next best thing to clowns: jesters! Sure enough, there are a bunch of comic book jesters!
Were jesters real? Does anybody know? Obviously they exist in pop culture depictions of castles and kingdoms. But were they historically real? That sounds like a really fun Wiki Wormhole. Anyway, there are a bunch of jester-themed comic book characters, so let’s count them down in celebration of the Joker!
Join me after the jump for the six best jesters in comics!
