Honestly, we should all just be happy that a Runaways TV show happened at all! This thing was always in the works, always in the conversation, and I’m glad it happened. I’m a big fan of the show and I’ll be sad to see it go at the end of the new, third season.
Such is the price we all must pay for the awesome Marvel Disney+ shows on the horizon.
Maybe this means that we can wait a couple of years and then Disney+ will relaunch the Runaways TV show and make it like Rainbow Rowell’s current Runaways comic, picking up with the team several years after their initial heyday. That would be a blast!
Season 3 starts on Dec. 13!
Good news, everybody! Strong Guy has finally been spotted on Krakoa as part of Dawn of X! Every X-Person ever, hero and villain, has supposedly been resurrected on Krakoa, but some of my favorite characters have been missing since the big relaunch.
But Strong Guy shows up in a big group shot from this week’s X-Force #2! He’s also, apparently, gone back to his 90s costume. Probably because of the upcoming action figure.
I’m glad to see he’s no longer dead. Vive le Strong Guy!
Also in this picture is our first confirmation that the Blob is also on Krakoa. He wasn’t in the big villain arrival scene during House of X, so I was holding out hope that Marvel was planning something special for Blob in the wake of Leah Williams’ excellent take on the character during the Age of X-Man.
This appearance doesn’t negate potential plans for Marvel and Williams, so I’m going to hold onto hope that something excellent might happen.
Now to sit back and wait for Multiple Man and Mimic to finally appear…
Do you want to make a Frozen-themed List of Six? Why yes, I do! And I’m not going to let this idea go! Or something. You all know the obvious Frozen puns. Don’t hold me to a high standard! Let’s just enjoy a list based on the release of Frozen II.
I liked Frozen II. I didn’t think much of the original movie, but I’m fully on board with the campaign to have Queen Elsa come out of the closet, so these movies matter just enough to me that I wanted to do a List of Six! I think Frozen II was better than the first, though none of the songs are as memorable or as good as “Let It Go!”. But this list isn’t a review of Frozen II. This is a celebration of the very idea of awesome women with ice powers who happen to hold a royal or leadership position (even if in name only). It’s apparently so common that I was able to make a whole List of Six about it! How cool is that?
Pun intended. Join me after the jump for a bunch of other ice queens, princesses and martial arts masters who aren’t Elsa from Frozen!
Did you catch Infinity Train when it finally came out this past year? I sure did, and I quite enjoyed the adventures of Tulip on that crazy train! Of course, if you saw it, you know that the first season ended pretty definitively.
Fortunately, season 2 seems to have come up with a really great way to keep the story going without undoing the previous ending.
Looks as good as season 1! Doesn’t look as good as the original pilot, but nothing ever will ever again. Still, season 1 was really good, and I can’t wait for season 2!
The next season of Doctor Who is on its way, possibly with a New Year’s Day special, or perhaps it’ll debut some other time. I dunno. I was fine with the previous season. I like Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, but I don’t think her first season gave her anything really deep or exciting to do. Here’s hoping the new season changes that!
Same Doctor, same companions, same people behind the camera; I really hope they’ve learned some lessons and have produced some better content this time around. I want some real drama, I want some real fun, I want some real meaningful emotion for the Doctor. Honestly, I can barely remember what happened in the previous season…
Here’s hoping for some greatness this year!
