Superheroes: they’re great. But which one is the best? Is it Captain Marvel, the mightiest Avenger? Or maybe Lady Sif, the character that they took a great deal of time to establish and then just abandoned completely in favor of…
Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 10 years and 18 movies’ worth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and stars… far too many people to list. Almost every important character from the MCU pops up in this film to face…
When one thinks about the Avengers, there are only a handful of villains that come to mind who can pose a true challenge. Loki was an excellent choice for the first film; he was known to people who saw Thor…
Four years. Four years since that teaser at the end of the Iron Man credits, where Nick Fury teased the “Avengers Initiative”. Four years and here it was, the movie that nerds worldwide had been waiting for. Don’t get me…
I have a confession to make: I’m not a big Thor fan. I’m not saying I hate the character, and there have been periods where I picked up the comic (for example, I was really digging what Jason Aaron was…
If there’s anything Hawkeye knows, it’s precision penetration.
After seeing Civil War, Joey looks at a TV episode similar to the film that doesn't get nearly enough attention.

“It feels distinctly like the beginning; that one day, the name Ales Kot will be associated with something huge and fantastic, and we’ll look back at early issues of Secret Avengers and recall how we knew he was destined for greatness all along.”
“If Shakespeare had had the wherewithal to include giant robots and inter-dimensional portals and storm-generating mystical hammers in his plays, it just might have looked something like this movie.”
Oh, Clint, you so sassy. In this episode, Ursa chats about some aspects of Hawkeye's character in The Avengers, and then gets overexcited by the Hawkeye Initiative, and its sterling efforts in highlighting the ridiculousness of female poses in comics. Good job there, Agent Barton!
Thor: God of Thunder. Prince of Asgard. KING OF CAPSLOCK. Kind of a prat. And capable of learning, growing, and inspiring little girls to dress up in armor and tutus.
Ursa turns the squee up to eleven and watches The Avengers. Or Marvel's The Avengers. Or Avengers Assemble. Oh, who cares what it's called? It's awesome! Fanboys and fangirls, assemble!
