As we saw in the last episode of Avengers: Ultron Revolution, while tracking down future technology, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes came face-to-face with Kang the Conqueror. After threatening New York, Kang retreats to the future, dragging the entire team, except for Thor, with him. Meet me after the time jump for my thoughts on “Into the Future.”
Folks who know me know that Kang the Conqueror is my favorite Avengers villain. They also know I believe that he is their ultimate archenemy, not Ultron, not the Masters of Evil, not Zodiac, and certainly not Thanos or the Squadron Supreme, but Kang. Here in the twelfth episode of the third season, he finally makes his Avengers Assemble debut. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Conqueror.”
The Inhumans are still among us on Avengers: Ultron Revolution as we meet more new Inhumans in the persons of the new Ms. Marvel and the Ghost, along with Inferno, in this plot to steal Tony Stark’s AI Friday. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on season three’s eleventh episode, “The Kids Are Alright.”

Suicide Squad: Flash Review
Before presenting the Actor Trading Cards for DC’s latest movie release, I feel the need to post a short review having seen the film over the weekend. Simply put… I LOVED IT! Suicide Squad is a delightful mash-up of chaos, driven by characters that you can’t help but like and root for even though, as you know, they’re the bad guys. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is exactly the kind of crazy everyone was hoping for, and Will Smith’s Deadshot is the most fun we’ve had watching Smith in years. The rest of the cast also does a fantastic job, and while the script takes the viewer on an unconventional roller coaster that includes quite a few “snap scenes” to fill in the background of its characters, it works because overall the film is a disorderly collaboration of joyful entertainment!

When last we left the Avengers, after a skirmish with the Inhumans, the two teams made friends, and witnessed the birth of a new Inhuman, Inferno. But behind the scenes, one of the Inhumans, Seeker, reported to Ultron, not good news. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Inhuman Condition.”
Today is the premiere of the first season of Beat Bugs, a new Netflix original series for kids. An ingenious take on the music of The Beatles, the show visualizes the worlds created by the Fab Four in their songs by depicting the adventures of a group of five best friends: Jay, Crick, Walter, Buzz, and Kumi.
Each episode features some of the most well-known Beatles songs reinterpreted with an impressive array of artists like P!nk, Sia, Aloe Blacc, Eddie Vedder, Robbie Williams, James Corden, The Shins, Frances, and The Lumineers, with more artists joining in for Season 2 (which will premiere on November 18).
Here is the trailer for Season 1.
If that isn’t enough to get you excited, check out this great behind the scenes look at the series and its creator Josh Wakely, as well as some of the voice actors and musical stars.
I wish this show had been around when I was a kid!
