Avengers: Ultron Revolution S03 E23: ‘Civil War, Part One: The Fall of Attilan’

av1

When an idea is successful, you recycle it as much as possible. Take Marvel Comics’ Civil War, the great maxi-series that pitted Iron Man against Captain America over civil rights issues. The story was a bit different but still roughly the same and just as successful with the last Captain America film of the same name. They tried again this past year with Civil War II with less than satisfactory results. Now the name Civil War comes to Avengers: Ultron Revolution. Meet me after the jump to see how it works out, with my review of “Civil War, Part One: The Fall of Attilan.”

Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio

We have been bereft of new Doctor Who for an entire year (“The Power of the Daleks” doesn’t count), since the last Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song,” a madcap and bittersweet conclusion to the River Song saga. To trump that adventure, showrunner Steven Moffat pulls a new rabbit from his hat – Doctor Who does superheroes. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Return of Doctor Mysterio.”

We have been given a very cool early Christmas present this year from the folks at Doctor Who. For the last few weeks on BBC America, and some time ago in select theaters, a new animation of a classic lost series of The Doctor battling the Daleks was created from surviving audio of the episodes. For the first time in fifty years, we can witness “The Power of the Daleks,” meet me after the jump for my review.

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: A Cuppa Fandom

When temperatures drop and there’s a nip in the air, there’s nothing better than curling up under a cozy blanket with a nice cup of tea. This year, instead of giving friends and family just any old tea, give them a tea inspired by their favorite fandom from Adagio Teas. They have tea blends for almost every fandom.

Since winter has actually come, sip on a variety of Game of Thrones blends.

For the rebel, you can get the entire Suicide Squad.

You can boil up an array of Wizarding World potions,

And what could be better than settling down to watch The Doctor’s Christmas Day Special with a mug of Whovian Feels.

A sample tin, with fun fandom artwork, costs $5.00, or you can purchase an entire collection, like the entire potions collection for $24.00.

If  you’re particularly fond of that special geeky guy or gal, you can head to Society 6 where they have numerous mugs to match that perfect fandom tea.

Meet me after the jump and I’ll be discussing Civil War II comics featuring Ulysses, Karnak, Doctor Doom, Nick Fury, and the Totally Awesome Hulk, among others.
