I have a new favorite! She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has been getting a lot of flack for reasons that make no sense to me. This show was everything it said it would be and more, and everything I wanted it to be. Funny, charming, full of personality and perfectly built around a very fun main character. I want to see Tatiana Maslany and Jennifer Walters everywhere now.
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
Once upon a time, I didn’t think She-Hulk would work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I didn’t think the MCU Hulk could translate into a She-Hulk movie. Thankfully, the world changed and the Disney+ TV shows changed everything. The creative team behind She-Hulk: Attorney at Law used the TV format to perfection to bring this character and her unique perspective to life. I want production to start immediately on season 2!
Join me after the jump for my full thoughts and review of the first season of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Expect FULL SPOILERS. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
Brace yourselves, a new She-Hulk series is coming, and you best believe it’s going to be a humdinger! There have been plenty of She-Hulk comics over the years, and I’ve enjoyed most of them just fine. But I am particularly excited about this new one because writer Rainbow Rowell is going to be the wordsmith! Rowell blew me away with her work on The Runaways comic over the past several years, easily one of my favorite recent comics from Marvel. I was very sad when that comic came to an end.
Now I’m very happy that Rowell is sticking with Marvel and is tackling a character like She-Hulk! With art by Rogê Antônio.
I am very excited to get my hands on a new Rainbow Rowell comic and I think she’ll have a lot of fun with She-Hulk. She’s apparently taking the character back to basics, wherein Jennifer Walters juggles being a superhero and a lawyer. That sounds fine by me. I haven’t been reading Jason Aaron’s Avengers comic, wherein She-Hulk is more of a brute-type Hulk, so I have no problem with shifting the character.
“She-Hulk is the best of the best,” Rowell said. “She’s smart, she’s funny — and she’s really and truly heroic (all that and she has the best hair in comics). Jen has always been at the top of my Marvel wishlist, and I’m thrilled to be writing her next chapter.”
The new series is coming in January, and you best believing I’ll be buying!
Crystal Dynamics held a big event yesterday for their upcoming Avengers video game, and they included a metric ton of videos and new information. We’ve now got our biggest and best looks yet at gameplay and story. It all looks pretty great!
Let’s start with a story trailer.
So it looks like the villain is going to be M.O.D.O.K. and he’s going to create an army of Super Adaptoid robots who will be empowered with Inhuman powers — the better to provide a ton of powerful robots to beat up. The story seems simple enough. It’s the rest of the game that’s apparently going to be really cool.
And here’s some additional pure gameplay footage of Thor.
So let’s see. It looks like there’s going to be a lot of battling super-powered robots, with some classic comic villains thrown in. I’ve seen Abomination in at least one of these trailers. And we know Taskmaster is in the game somewhere.
It looks like base building is going to be a part of the game, as we’ll need to “rebuild the helicarrier”. And we knew outfit and gear management was going to be a thing, allowing us to customize the look and loadout of our superheroes.
Here’s a longer video even. Some stuff might be repeated.
These videos definitely make me more excited about the game than I was before. It definitely does not appear to be as ‘on rails’ as I’ve been fearing. But I’m also not entirely sure this game is going to be much more than going out to a location and beating up a seemingly endless supply of faceless, nameless robots. But hell, maybe that will be awesome. I know I’ll probably really enjoy the costume/loadout aspect of the game, and the base building. The story looks like it’ll be pretty pure Marvel superheroics, so that’s fine.
And there’s plenty of room for expansion. They’ve already said they’re going to bring in new superheroes over time, like Ant-Man. And surely if this is an ongoing game that live updates over time, there will be other stories. Maybe season 2 will be Galactus or Skrulls or something.
Suffice to say, this is our best look yet at the game, and it looks bigger and better than anything we’ve seen about it before. I’m pretty satisfied with all of this.
The game is due out on Sept. 4…just in time for my birthday!
