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.”

Actor Trading Cards: Suicide Squad

suicide-squadSuicide 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!

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!
