Exiles New Vs Old: Issue four

Standard

Turns out that whole bi-monthly thing was just a flash in the pan for series new which makes me ask why they bothered with it at all.

Exiles ‘Old vs New’: Issue Three

Standard

So this is it, issue three. The classics are starring down the barrel of one of the most popular comic book stories of all time and the newbies are starring down the barrel of a  half hearted attempt to appeal to fans of a cult t.v show, from two years ago; as originally made by a pay to win mobile game that few actually bothered to play. This is issue three of ……………………

What is ‘Justice League: Mortal’?

Standard

The MCU is doing wonders at the moment, managing to hype people to unprecedented levels with a fight between superheroes and a guy they’ve never heard of whose never managed to get out of his chair in over five years. Meanwhile the DCMU has managed to do two movies with a crazy space hobo, one movie about a clown hooker and one that has Ben Affleck apparently doing everything……. he can to get his name off the project. But this is not the only way it could have gone. We could have had a Justice League back when Marvel was still talking about an “Initiative”, we could have had a Justice League from the man behind “Fury Road”, an altogether more human Justice League a………………………………….

Deadpool took out the Marvel universe in 2012 only to come back round for another go, Punisher and Wolverine have also both managed it at least twice now, so the question is; is there any point in one more go?

What is ‘Wonder Woman’ (2017)?

Standard

As Marvel prepares to bring to a close ten years of hard work that saw them move from a small independent studio with nary a single hero anyone cared about to one that has now defined every film franchise going forward from monster movies to Robin Hood let’s see how the ‘distinguished competition’ is doing in ………………………………..
