Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 8/21/21

We’re two weeks away from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Feels good to be super excited about another Marvel movie! Good thing we have plenty of interesting comics to get us through this, like Power Rangers, Nightwing and the start of the Trial of Magneto!

Comic Book of the Week goes to a truly epic Way of X #5. I already loved this book for the philosophy, and then this issue goes and delivers some truly out-of-this-world action!

It has been said

Meanwhile, I had a pretty busy week and wasn’t able to get around to all of my normal comic reviews. After two weeks of nearly bare pull lists, this week had a ton of comics! I had to skip out on Marauders, Iron Man and Supergirl this week, but I hope to get caught up and review their next issues.

Comic Reviews: Nightwing #83, Power Rangers #10, Superman and the Authority #2, Way of X #5, X-Corp #4 and X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #1.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Tonight! WandaVision Now!

The first episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is now available on Disney+! I’ve heard good things. The critic reviews are very positive. I can’t wait to watch later tonight after work! Until then, how about the Honest Trailer for WandaVision? I told you these nifty online parodies were coming!

Good stuff! I also plan to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League this weekend! I may or may not do a List of Six on my thoughts on the movie. As I recall, I enjoyed the Joss Whedon Justice League when I saw it in theaters…though I have no interest in it now.

6 Thoughts on WandaVision

WandaVision is over and the world may never be the same! After a year and a half, we finally have new Marvel content in our lives and I love how excited the world became for this TV show! None of us knew what to expect with Marvel Studios transitioning to television, but I think most of us are pleased as punch with the result.

TV Show Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.

It should come as no surprise that I loved WandaVision. I make no bones about the fact that I am a dedicated Marvel fanboy. I love their stuff, and I loved this new TV show. The performances were excellent. The use of characters was fun. And the main story, about grief and witchcraft, was a blast. This thing succeeded at everything it tried to do. I’ll admit it wasn’t perfect, but it was still very enjoyable and entertaining viewing. Obviously, I have thoughts.

Join me after the jump for my thoughts and review on WandaVision! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole season.

Let the WandaVision Teasing Begin!

WandaVision is over and everything is worse now. Fortunately, it’s about to get better, because now all our favorite YouTube video-makers can go hog wild on the show! And first up is Pitch Meeting by that one funny dude at Screen Rant!

He hits a lot of the most obvious bits, but it’s still funny! And we’ve got plenty more videos in the weeks ahead to enjoy. How WandaVision should have ended, perhaps? Suffice to say, WandaVision was good stuff!

I’ll have my review/thoughts on the show on Wednesday!

WandaVision is a Terrible Way to Introduce Mutants to the MCU

I have very much been enjoying WandaVision on Disney+ week in and week out. It’s a fun, exciting, tense, mysterious show, and I’ve been having a blast! That being said, I think WandaVision is a terrible way to introduce mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Not a mutant in the MCU

Along with watching every episode of WandaVision, I’ve also discovered the entire cottage industry on YouTube of reaction videos. I hope people are making good money on this stuff! And I’m reading reviews and recaps and message board comments. There’s so much talk out there about WandaVision, and I have plenty of my own theories, but there’s one fan theory I want to squelch if I can: there is no way WandaVision will or should be the introduction of mutants into the MCU proper.

No spoilers in this opening section! So join me after the jump for more. And expect FULL SPOILERS for WandaVision up until this point (episode 6).
