Rebounding from a poorly received first season, the Marvel/Netflix collaboration Iron Fist turns out a stronger outing, with pervading themes of addiction and recovery.
What started with the grounded world of Daredevil season one has become a breeding ground for comic book insanity. Bottomless pits at construction sites. Immortal villains. Magic superhero monks. All that and more is back to challenge our favorite street-level heroes in The Defenders.
In an age dominated by antiheroes, Spider-Man: Homecoming shines bright, with its colorful optimism and truly heroic sensibilities.
Since its release, the film Logan has been widely considered among consideration for the best film in the X-Men franchise. The Mark Millar comic that it was based on, Old Man Logan, deserves similar consideration.
Logan is not like other comic book films. It is brutal and bleak. It has a small cast that it spends more time with. It’s also about one of the most pressing social issues of our day: absent fathers.
Comic books aren’t always shallow. In the case of Hulk, Christians have a great deal to learn about how we approach emotional trauma and Christians that struggle with it.
Remember that time that Otto Octavius was Spider-Man?
