This is it, the first season finale of what is, so far, in my opinion, the best comic book superhero television series ever done – “The Flash.” The villain of the season, Harrison Wells AKA Eobard Thawne AKA the Reverse-Flash has been captured, and now muct answer for his crimes. Why does he hate the Flash so much? Why did he kill Barry’s mother? And can Barry save her by traveling back in time? Will he be “Fast Enough”? Meet me after the time jump and find out.
The Avengers are back together again, the threats of Ultron and Thanos have been vanquished, for the moment, so what better time to add a new member? The first new member we’ve seen so far since the Falcon in “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” is Ant-Man, and Hawkeye’s not so happy about it. Meet me after the jump, for my thoughts on “The New Guy.”
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, we continue our special one hundredth episode celebration, plus two, we’ll be answering the final batch of questions in our own little Ask Me (Us) Anything. See and hear more after the jump.
If you’ve been enjoying “The Flash” or “Arrow,” you must know that there has been spin-off brewing for quite some time, and now the CW has scheduled it for 2016. Heroes and villains – The Atom, Firestorm, White Canary, Hawkgirl, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, and Rip Hunter – together as a team against the time-spanning menace of Vandal Savage. Meet me after the jump for your first look at “Legends of Tomorrow”
The television season next year will be on fire with comic book superhero action, both with returning shows and new adventures on the horizon. One of the biggest will be on CBS from the producers of “Arrow” and “The Flash,” and that’s “Supergirl.” Meet me after the jump for our first look.
The Flash is looking for a little help from his friends (and enemies) to fight the Reverse-Flash. He not only recruits Arrow and Firestorm (why not the Atom?), but also Captain Cold and his evil kid sister. Yeah, he’s that desperate, but can he trust these Rogues to be loyal when it comes down to it? And what about all the other villains out there, and imprisoned in The Pipeline? This is just one of the only two episodes of “The Flash” left, so the final battle is coming. Meet me after the treacherous super-speed jump for my thoughts on “Rogue Air.”
We talk about what we liked and didn’t like, what worked and what didn’t work, the history of Ultron, both in the comics and in the films, and what really blew us away about the flick. We also discuss how the TV series “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” connects up to this film and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and then what we’re looking forward to in Phase Three of this mighty Marvel film franchise.

Here we have another episode title referencing something very specific from the comics, like the Secret Avengers series, yet giving it a new spin on the “Avengers Assemble” animated series. I have to say, I really like this trick. This week, Captain America’s team of Avengers faces the Winter Guard, Russia’s mightiest heroes, or are they? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Secret Avengers.”
