Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/14/19
We’ve got a big, fat stack of comics this week, and all of them were good or better! Sometimes I worry that I’m too positive in my comic reviews…but then I remember that I only really read comics I already enjoy. Perhaps I’m a fraud!
Nah, I don’t think that. I’m just a dude giving my thoughts on the comics I like! And hopefully you all enjoy reading. This week we’ve got some real zingers from the likes of Batman, Go Go Power Rangers, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and much more! Comic Book of the Week goes to the return of Wonder Twins for another perfect issue!
Meanwhile, I am really liking Event Leviathan! It’s a whole mess of Bendis-speaking and not showing, but it involves some interesting characters, an interesting mystery, and some of the best cliffhangers I’ve seen in comics in a long time! It’s like comics forgot how to do a proper cliffhanger, and Bendis is schooling everybody with these twists and surprises!
Comic Reviews: Batman #78, Black Cat #4, Go Go Power Rangers #23, Gwenpool Strikes Back #2, King Thor #1, Powers of X #4, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #48 and Wonder Twins #7.
Deadpool 2 is Out on DVD Soon, So Here’s the First YouTube Parody Cartoon
Gotta love these fun little videos, and How It Should Have Ended is one of the good ones! Their Deadpool 2 video was apparently written from fan submissions! And some of those are pretty funny.
Except all the parts where it seems like the HISHE crew is just writing their own Deadpool fan fiction. Like, the alternate scenes/endings stuff takes up less than half of the video before they go on an extended riff connected to their Infinity War video. I would congratulate the film for not also falling back on their Superman/Batman cafe scenes, but they make sure to get in an extended Batman riff, too.
Eh, still a fun video to laze about with on a Thursday.
6 Thoughts on Deadpool 2
Honestly, I don’t care if X-Men: Dark Phoenix ever comes out. The main X-Men franchise is dead to me, and there’s no point in beating that horse corpse. The new Deadpool franchise is where it’s at! Humor, action and a far more fun and energetic use of classic comic book characters, Deadpool should be the future of this franchise — at least until Marvel does a full reboot to bring the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.
Until that happens, I would rather FOX keep producing entertaining off-shoot movies like Deadpool 2! I found this movie to be just as funny, wacky and raunchy as the first, with plenty of heart and soul added to make it an even better film. The last thing I want to do is slog through another movie of James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence phoning it in. Ryan Reynolds is the hilarity we need!

The 6 Coolest Alternate Deadpools
Deadpool is a pretty darn popular character these days, what with a big movie sequel coming out at the end of the week. Me, being a finger-on-the-pulse kind of guy, I’ve decided to tie-in this week’s List of Six with the release of Deadpool 2! How about that?!
The problem is that I don’t actually read a lot of Deadpool comics. Or any Deadpool comics, honestly. I like the character just fine, but I don’t have a handful of favorite Deadpool moments or zingers out of which to make a list. Instead, I’ve decided to do a list of the best alternate Deadpools! There have been a bunch of alternate reality, alternate future, and replacement Deadpools throughout the years and it’s time they were bundled into one place! Or, at least, bundled into one place by me.
Join me after the jump for the best and wackiest alternate versions and parodies of Deadpool! And you should probably go see his movie this weekend, too. I know I’m going to! Get it? Because of Deadpool 2? Yeah, you get it.
How About a Great Movie Trailer: Deadpool 2
I was ragging on The Lost Park: Jurassic World earlier today for delivering a crappy trailer that gives away a lot of the plot. Well the final trailer for Deadpool 2 has arrived, and it also gives away a lot of the plot — but it is an amazing and hilarious trailer! Be sure to stay all the way until the end.
For my money, I think that whole bit with Peter at the end, from introduction to badass skydiving, might be the greatest joke in all of the Deadpool movies so far. Bring on this movie!
