As we wait for the movie sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy in just a little over a month, the second season of the animated series opens with a special two-parter guest-starring the Avengers, whetting our appetite for Infinity War when the two teams face off against Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Meet me after the jump for my review of “Stayin’ Alive.”
Things were looking very grim for our heroes in the last episode of “The Flash.” In the aftermath of a mad plan that had Linda Park masquerading as her Earth-Two doppelgänger Dr. Light, Barry lost the use of his legs in frantic combat. Humiliated and beaten in front of Central City, things get worse when Super Gorilla Grodd returns. Meet me after the simian leap for my review of “Gorilla Warfare.”
Like meteor freaks or monsters of the week, breachers from Earth-Two sent to destroy the Flash on orders from Zoom have become status quo so far this season of “The Flash.” This week’s breacher goes by the name of Doctor Light, a character with a dangerous and twisted history and legacy in the comics. We’ll take a look at that, and the episode at hand, “The Darkness and The Light,” after the jump.
This past week Life with Archie #36 came out, and if you’ve been paying attention to various news outlets, and the comics press for the last few months, you know it’s the death of Archie Andrews. But that’s not the end of it, it’s not even the tip of the iceberg. We’ll get a bit of background, and learn all about life and death with Archie, after the jump.
The worst has happened. The Avengers’ greatest enemy, Ultron, has won. The Earth is conquered, the human race decimated and enslaved, and the Avengers on the run. In a last ditch effort to stop the evil artificial intelligence, our heroes turned to time travel for salvation.
Wolverine and the Invisible Woman traveled back in time and thoughtlessly murdered Avenger Hank Pym before he created Ultron, but this only made things worse when they returned to the present. How can our heroes reset time and save us all? Can they? Find out in my review of Age of Ultron Book Nine after the jump.
