6 Spooky Marvel Characters for the “Adventure Into Fear” Shows

We’ve known for some time that Ghost Rider and Daimon Hellstrom would be getting Marvel TV shows. But last week, Marvel TV announced that they were only the start of an “Adventure Into Fear” brand of spooky Marvel shows. They want to tap into the “terror” of superheroes on Hulu. Sounds good to me!


Ready for his closeup!

Ghost Rider was great on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though this is apparently going to be a new incarnation (while keeping the same actor). And Daimon Hellstrom is always cool as the Son of Satan. But who else will get shows? Blade and Morbius are getting movies. Man-Thing…had a movie. Does Marvel have a deep horror bench beyond this crew? Of course they do! Allow this comic book geek to list off a couple solid choices for fear and terror-themed television shows!

Join me after the jump for my suggestions! And feel free to share your own in the comments! What spooky Marvel characters do you want to see on the small screen?

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/31/16

Here we are at last, on the final day of 2016. This accursed year has done much to destroy the human spirit and crush all our hopes and dreams. But I say that dreams never die! I plan on making 2017 the best year ever! And we can start with a nice, big pile of comic book reviews to end out the year.

We’ve got so many comic reviews, too! I had some extra time on my hands this week, so I read and have reviewed a ton of books! We’ve got great comics, like Infamous Iron Man and the new Hulk! We’ve got middling books, like Ghost Rider and Prowler! And we’ve got not quite good books, like Teen Titans!

But Comic Book of the Week goes to a stellar Spider-Woman, as writer Dennis Hopeless shows everyone the pure awesomeness of carefully constructed and executed character drama!


This day, we punch!

The final issue of Civil War II also came out this week, and just as we all feared, it was a bunch of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Captain Marvel and Iron Man duke it out and nothing really comes of it. Tony is taken off the table, Ulysses literally just disappears, solving that crisis, and pretty much every comic has already moved on to their new ongoing storylines anyway. So yeah, this thing was a big stinker.

Comic Reviews: Batgirl #6, Detective Comics #947, Ghost Rider #2, Great Lakes Avengers #3, Hulk #1, Infamous Iron Man #3, Mighty Thor #14, Prowler #3, Spider-Woman #14 and Teen Titans #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 12/3/16

I come to you people more the worse for wear. I got some crummy medical news the other day about some inner ear/balance problems that I kind of just need to suck up and deal with. Ugh. It’s just generally crummy. So forgive me for any noticeable typos or bad attitudes.

Fortunately, not many comics came out this week, considering it was a fifth week in November. So we’ve only got a couple comics, from the new debut of Ghost Rider to the next exciting Power Rangers issue! The latter easily wins Comic Book of the Week for more out-of-the-box ideas!

The Red Green Power Ranger!

Ms. Marvel also came out with a new issue this week, but it quickly morphed into a big election PSA. Like, I had to go back and check the cover to make sure this wasn’t some kind of free handout. It gets really in depth about the ins and outs of voting…even though Election Day was several weeks ago. Not quite sure what was going on there, and it was a little too hopeful about the election to actually review.

Comic Reviews: Ghost Rider #1, Great Lakes Avengers #2 and Mighty Mophin Power Rangers #9.

Today is Just Gonna Be All About Ghost Rider, Apparently

I hadn’t planned it this way, but I guess today is all about showing off the upcoming Ghost Rider in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Though this picture doesn’t look as cool as his flaming car.

He's giving us all the Penance Stare right now

He’s giving us all the Penance Stare right now

Hopefully the skull face looks a little better in action or when it’s not looking straight on directly at us. But hey, he looks like Ghost Rider, and it sounds like they’re gonna stay true to the character. What more could we ask for? Ghost Rider is gonna be in a TV show! And not his own show. A live action Ghost Rider is guest starring on a regular TV show, because that’s what gets to happen nowadays!


It’s Quick, But It’s Also Definitely Ghost Rider

Marvel and ABC have been slowly doling out looks at Ghost Rider in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and here’s the best one yet! It’s a quick little snippet of flaming car, but it’s pretty sweet.

See? It’s on fire! I’m definitely super excited now. Brig on new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!
