Heroes and Villains – Reviewing The Week’s Marvels 4-12-2017


This week in Heroes and Villains our selection of new Marvel Comics include the other team of X-Men in the aftermath of the Inhumans/Mutants war, a team-up of two of my least-liked characters, the latest adventure of a future television star, and perhaps the end of the ‘good’ Captain America. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on X-Men Blue #1, Deadpool Vs. The Punisher #1, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #19, and Captain America: Sam Wilson #21… beware of spoilers…

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Beats Up The Marvel Universe OGN Trailer


Proof that we’re living in the best of all possible worlds: THERE’S A SQUIRREL GIRL GRAPHIC NOVEL AND IT’S AVAILABLE NOW! It’s a stand-alone adventure that’s both great for new Squirrel Girl readers, and also for people who ALREADY know about how she can talk to squirrels and also punch really well! Behold: a story so HUGE it demanded a graphic novel! A story so NUTS that it incorporates BOTH senses of that word (insanity AND the weird hard fruit thingies) (they’re fruits, did you know that?) (I didn’t until I looked them up just now, so looks like we’re all learning science from this solicit text for a comic book!) Squirrel Girl has defeated Thanos, Galactus, and Doctor Doom. TWICE. But in this all-new graphic novel, she’ll encounter her most dangerous, most powerful, most unbeatable enemy yet: HERSELF. Specifically, an evil duplicate made possible through mad science (both computer and regular) as well as some Bad Decisions. In other words, SQUIRREL GIRL BEATS UP THE MARVEL UNIVERSE! We know. You can’t wait either.


Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S02 E02: Heavy Is the Head


In many ways last week was a grim start to the second season of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The team is working from the shadows to rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D., while still contending with Hydra, and new threats like the Absorbing Man, and some members have been sidelined or otherwise damaged from the events of last season. And not the least of their troubles are the less than stellar ratings of the series… Join me after the jump for my thoughts on “Heavy Is the Head.”
