Let’s talk colors! Right now, it’s freezing cold in Upstate New York, and that’s not going to change anytime soon — even though yesterday was the first day of Spring! I could use some heat, so I think I’ll do another color list in flaming hot red!
I like doing themed lists. I had a Blue List and a Green List, and now I want to do a list of all the best comic book characters to have the word ‘Red’ in their superhero name. Because I find it incredibly weird and slightly silly that adding a color as an adjective to a superhero’s name is a legitimate phenomenon. It’s just plain neat how comics work!
Join me after the jump for the coolest, and sometimes the weirdest, red comic book characters.
I did not like the second season of Jessica Jones. I kind of hated almost everything about it. I am honestly going to sit here and tell you that I found it less entertaining than Iron Fist. You are more than welcome to disagree with me. I hope you enjoyed this season of television. But I did not. Oh man, I did not.
TV Rating: 3/10 – Bad.
I loved the first season of Jessica Jones. It was gripping, exciting, had a very important message and starred some really awesome characters, Jessica Jones especially. So the fact that most, if not all, of the same people could return and make this horrible season is mind-boggling! How did it go so wrong? Why did anybody think this was a good TV show? How can they mess it up this much after such a stellar first season?

Today marks the final issue of the Iceman solo comic, one that I greatly enjoyed and am sad to see leave. It was a fun little comic that, I think, could have had some legs going forward. But today’s comic book market is not too keen on keeping smaller comics alive. Which is why, going forward, it looks like Marvel is going to stick to putting out smaller mini-series instead of cutting full series short. The new Multiple Man solo comic has already been announced as a 5-issue mini.
There’s nothing wrong with this business model, I don’t think. Personally, I would just let the comics be full series and make sure the writer knows they’ll only maybe get one or two volumes out before a likely cancellation. But short, one-story mini-series are fine, too. Marvel has tried countless times over the years to churn out solo series starring the X-Men, and I’m pretty sure it has only ever worked with Wolverine, but that’s not going to stop Marvel from trying. Nor should it.
Nor will it stop me from being the creative sort of guy with pitches of his own! So if you’re reading my blog, Marvel editors, I’ve got a couple of solo X-Men mini-series to pitch your way! Join me after the jump!
I am super late with this review listicle for the first season of the Runaways TV show. Not only did the show end several weeks ago, I also finished watching it a couple weeks ago. So apologies on the lateness of this review! Runaways was a fun show and I’m excited for season 2.
TV Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I thought the cast of the characters was excellent and the special effects were not bad at all for a TV show on Hulu. It mostly captured the spirit of the comics and is a fine addition to the superhero TV lineup. The dinosaur was especially fun!

Marvel does it again! And perhaps better than ever! I loved Black Panther, unconditionally. I’ve been super excited about this film and it delivered everything I could have hoped for. Sometimes I’ll have some quiet reservations about a Marvel movie, but not this time. Black Panther is superb! One of Marvel’s absolute best!
Movie Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic.
I feel a little sorry for anybody decrying superhero fatigue. As a lifelong comic book fan, especially Marvel Comics, I have been living childhood dreams for more than a decade now. We’re 10 years deep into Marvel churning out superhero movies and they are still making films as amazing as Black Panther. Somebody pinch me!
