Why are the Inhumans so hated? Is it because Marvel has forced them on us because Fox keeps the mutants out of their film and television hands? Is it because we’re getting them instead of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Is it because their big screen debut had such lousy distribution? Who are Jack Kirby’s least-loved creations, and why are they so hated? The answers, and a review of the first two episodes, after the jump.
Finally, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have escaped the Hydra ruled world of The Framework, but at what cost? How have they been affected, what have they lost, and what dangerous new threat awaits them in the real world? Meet me after the jump for my review of “The Return.”
Things were more than grim when we last left our Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. With most of the team incapacitated and plugged in the cyberspatial Framework after being replaced by LMDs, Quake and Simmons must go inside and save them. Unfortunately the Framework has created a nightmare world ruled by Hydra! Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “What If…”
Civil War continues in the Marvel Animated Universe as the Avengers disband from conflict in the shadow of the Inhuman Registration Act. From the ashes of the old, a new team is formed, the Mighty Avengers. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Civil War, Part 2: The Mighty Avengers.”
The next phase of this season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is now underway, as noted in the subtitle LMD. Aida plots to once again possess the Darkhold, while keeping May captive and an LMD of her active with the team. Meanwhile a new Inhuman, Senator Nadeer’s brother Vijay, has emerged, and that’s only the start of this new beginning. Meet me after the jump for my review of “Broken Promises.”
Just so we don’t go cold turkey with our Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD addiction, ABC has provided us with a new digital-only series for the winter break – Slingshot. Not only do we get a spotlight on Yo-Yo (Slingshot is actually her character’s name in the comics, and she’s quickly become one of my favorite characters on the show), but we also get a bit of fill-in on what happened during the time between seasons three and four. Meet me after the jump, for my thoughts on Slingshot, the digital series.
When we last left Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., things were looking rather grim. Ghost Rider‘s uncle, Elias Morrow, had become a “god,” empowered by the Darkhold and able to create matter from thin air. With half the team missing, to quote Mack, “We’re in nightmare territory here, this is evil.” Meet me after the jump for my review of “Deals with Our Devils.”
Can vengeance be contained? After a few clashes with Quake, the Ghost Rider comes flaming face to face with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. What is his secret, and what about the ghosts of the Momentum Lab? Worse than that, how are the Watchdogs getting info on the Inhumans? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire!”
