What is ‘Doctor Mordrid’?

Standard

Dr Strange is out now and thus we are now well into phase three of the Marvel cinematic universe, complete with brand new intro which does away with those pesky comic books in favour of the shiny, new and much more successful movies, which will take us from here to ‘The Infinity War’ and possibly into the ‘Inhumans’ depending on whether the t.v and movie side of Marvel can kiss and make up. Not to mention that right now Marvel are actually well into production on phase four.

For some this can be a lot to keep up with; not only in terms of continuity and plot but also money. After all as soon as most major cinema chains get a whiff of a Marvel release they hike up the prices for the next few weeks knowing that you’ve got to see it or you’re out of all office gossip for the next two months or until the next major release comes along. Even Dorris the lunch lady is questioning you these days on how much of Mar-vell they are going to get into the Captain Marvel movie and will T’challa be leading the then current line up of the Avengers.

But what are you supposed to do? You’ve just ordered twelve graphic novels off Amazon, in a drunken stupor, so you would be able to follow this movie. Were they just a waste of money?

Fear not true believer! Is this the movie you want? No but it’s the one you deserve. For this is………………………………………………………………………………………..

What is the lost future?

Standard

From the distant past of 2010 comes the incredible tale of the distant future, yes before we go any further it’s another “Earth all along moment” but still we’ve got Sean Bean and the producer of ‘Pillars of the Earth‘ which is a fairly decent board game (though I don’t know why that’s considered a selling point for a movie) plus the director of Band of Brothers who got some decent work out of some apparently less than decent actors so how bad can it be?

What is ‘101 ways to end the clone saga’?

Standard

The clone saga, as has already been mentioned, was a bit of a mess. It sold so well that the highers ups wanted more; more twists, more turns, more clones. The further they went however the further from the original plot they got and so it was a race against the clock for the writers, editors and assorted others to keep the train going while constantly laying new tracks all the time. Thus when it came time to call on an end on the whole thing there was a question on how best to do it leaving them with……………………………………………………………………………………

Spider-man: The Real Clone Saga

The original clone saga is a disaster storyline that ran through the spider books for two whole years telling of the return of a forgotten clone who refused to stay dead, the return of several villains who refused to stay dead and the birth of a child who would likewise refuse to stay dead. Now don’t get me wrong for ‘it’s much more complicated than that!’ Or at least it was, for now we have…………………………….
