Category Archives: Lists of Six!
The day has finally arrived that we fans of Jamie Madrox the Multiple Man have long been waiting for! He’s back in regular, ongoing comics! This day marks the first issue of the new X-Corp series by Tini Howard and Alberto Foche, a series I have long been anticipating as Multiple Man’s proper debut in the Dawn of X-era of X-Men comics!
Multiple Man is my all-time favorite comic book character. And it has been a long many years since he appeared regularly in ongoing comics — since the end of Peter David’s X-Factor in September 2013, in fact. And then he’s been dead for a good long while. But Dawn of X and the Krakoa-era are all about resurrection! Madrox has made multiple appearances here and there over the past two or so years, but X-Corp is now his time to shine! And I’m going to honor his return with a List of Six dedicated to Multiple Man!
Specifically, we’re going to look at some of the more interesting dupes to ever pop out of Jamie Madrox the Multiple Man! Join me after the jump!Read the rest of this entry
So here’s the deal: I had a couple of ideas for a Mortal Kombat movie themed List of Six. I could have done one of my usual review lists, like I did for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier last week. I also thought about doing a list of what I’d like to see in a sequel. But after watching the movie twice, once in theaters and once at home, my only real take away from the new Mortal Kombat movie is how much of it sucks.
Movie Rating: 4/10 – Pretty Bad.
Overall, I’d rate the movie as less than average. Parts of it are really cool. They do the fighting well enough, they do the gore very well, a lot of the characters are quality adaptations, and overall I’d rate the movie as a watchable action flick. But man oh man, do they make a lot of stupid character and plot decisions. So much so that those are the only real takeaways I have from Mortal Kombat. What boneheads made these choices?

Six weeks of action and excitement have come and gone and I declare that the first season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was awesome! I loved the whole darn thing, from beginning to end. A lot of chatter online has this show as flawed, but I disagree entirely. I had fun the whole way through and loved pretty much every minute of it.
TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was everything I wanted and more. Going into the series, I expected an action show on par with the action-heavy Marvel movies, and we got that. I expected some fun banter/butting heads between Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes. We got that. Then the show took things even further with some truly memorable side characters and a deeper exploration of race than I would have ever predicted. I thought that part was great as well!
What can I say? I love me some Marvel Cinematic Universe content!

The first trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings arrived earlier this week and it looked awesome! It’s the next new Marvel movie after Black Widow, scheduled to come out on Sept. 3 — only a few days before my birthday! So all signs point to the Shang-Chi film looking great! There’s no reason to doubt that Marvel isn’t going to knock another one out of the park.
But here’s the thing: I know very little about Shang-Chi and have little interest in his comic history.
Despite being a lifelong comic book fan, I simply have no history with Shang-Chi. By the time I started reading comics in the 1990s, the Kung Fu fascination was long gone and Shang-Chi was nobody. I think he’s a great choice for Marvel’s first leading Asian character. And the trailer looks like Marvel went all-in on the classic Hong Kong martial arts cinema. That sounds great! But not being a fan of Shang-Chi in the comics, I’m not even sure what I want to see in the new film…but I’m going to give it a shot anyway!

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we? I don’t remember what inspired this list, but I think it’ll be a little fun. At least for me. Depends on how interesting you find random childhood trivia about the guy who writes this blog. I was thinking about toys for some reason and came up with a list idea of random action figures I had from my childhood!
I grew up in the 1980s, so I had a ton of traditional action figures from the likes of the Ninja Turtles, Real Ghostbusters and G.I. Joe. They were the big ones for me. I had exactly one Transformer — Inferno the fire truck — and a ton of superheroes. I even had a phase of loving American Gladiator toys! Sprinkled among these average toys were some true gems. Some really random and obscure action figures that somehow found their way into my childhood and now my adult memory bank.
Join me after the jump for a trip down memory lane to some really neat action figures that have just stuck in my head all these decades later! And feel free to share some of your own in the comments.Read the rest of this entry
