So, Tom & Jerry Are Getting the Live Action Treatment…

Yeah, this is a thing that’s happening. Chloe Grace Moretz gets to pantomime to an invisible Tom and Jerry for a new moving coming out next year.

Oy vey that looks bad. Like, really bad. Like, who is making this nonsense bad? But I suppose it’s nice that the various actors in the movie will continue to get a paycheck of some kind. I like Michael Pena as much as the next person.

There’s a LEGO Star Wars Christmas Special Coming Out Tomorrow!

Have you heard of this thing? LEGO and Star Wars are putting out a silly new holiday special on Tuesday. It seems to involve Rey traveling through time and running into various characters, including everybody’s favorite, Baby Yoda.

Looks…watchable? Maybe? I don’t know. I don’t watch any of the LEGO Star Wars animated stuff. Seems focused on kids, while also trying to ape the humor of the big screen LEGO movies. But hey. We’re all fans of Star Wars here. We’re all fans of LEGO. So maybe this will be worth a watch.

LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special comes out on Disney+.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/14/20

It has been a week since America decided to elect a new President and it’s been a pleasant week at that. I splurged on some new LEGO to celebrate. I bought the new Spider-Man video game. And I read some good to OK comics, like Iron Man and a bunch more X of Swords.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #1 because, just like last week’s Mighty Morphin, the new era of Power Rangers comics at BOOM! is just as much fun as its always been!

It’s on like Donkey Kong!

Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, I picked up Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the Playstation 4 and it’s great! It’s another fun dose of the already beloved Spider-Man PS4 gameplay, only now its Miles Morales-flavored. And the writers and developers went out of their way to find ways to make that special. Miles swings differently than Peter. He fights differently. And he lives differently. It’s great!

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season Two #9, Iron Man #3, Power Rangers #1, Marauders #15, Excalibur #14 and Wolverine #7.

There’s Gonna Be Even More Adventure Time!

Adventure Time may be over, but apparently HBO Max is all about adding a few more adventures with their Distant Lands sequels. I still haven’t watched the BMO movie, but here’s one starring Marceline the Vampire Queen and Princess Bubblegum!

Distant Lands: Obsidian will start airing on Nov. 19 and it should be fun in that we can actually enjoy the Marceline/Bubblegum romance instead of it just being something that happened at the end of the show. Depending on how many of these Distant Lands bits we get, I’ll definitely have to binge them all in a weekend some day.

6 USA-Themed Superheroes (Other Than Captain America)

Hooray America! At long last, the people of the United States of America came together to oust Donald J. Trump from the White House! Granted, it was a tight race and a good 70 million+ Americans still voted for that national embarrassment to remain in power, but the only thing that matters in the end is the win for Joe Biden.

So let’s celebrate by recognizing a bunch of fun USA-themed comic book characters!

Let freedom ring

Obviously Captain America is the #1 choice for such a list, but everybody already knows about him. Let’s dig deeper and find some of the more obscure and yet still 100% real America-themed comic book characters! There are a lot more than you’d think. And I’m not just talking about U.S.Agent or Iron Patriot either. Oh no, we’re digging deep for this list and it’s going to be a raucous good time!

Join me after the jump for six United States of America-themed superheroes as we celebrate a Trump-less country.
