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…
So I’ve talked before about DC screwing around with their classic characters by throwing them into new settings that range from “plausible” to “this writer is clearly having a nervous breakdown, please get them help.” One of the best sandboxes…
This Halloween, more children than ever dressed up as their favorite superheroes, according to a statistic I just made up. It makes sense for children to aspire to be powerful, respected bats and metal drunks. But my family is Jewish,…
Ah yes, the sidekick: one of the most enduring concepts in superhero fiction. Dating back to the earliest days of the medium, the sidekick typically serves as a valuable backup for the hero himself (as well as an extra shootable…
This anomaly will look pretty familiar to anyone who watches The Flash, and this is obviously a prelude to the big CW crossover event based on DC's Invasion!, but before we find out any of that, we have this episode’s weak-sauce A plot to get out of the way.
Barry is caught between his past and future girlfriends, Harrison joins Team Flash, and Jay says, "Screw you guys, I'm going home to a parallel universe."
Attack of the Man-Shark! No wait, it's Reverse Firestorm! There's a lot of weirdness going on in this week's The Flash recap.
Another Flash pops in from a parallel universe to help Barry learn to ride the lightning, and what do you know, it's just in time to use his new trick against Sand Demon, the one villain it's perfect for.
Season 2 of The Flash kicks off with a great big yummy bowl of mac & cheese. Also, a new villain called Atom-Smasher, a peak into an alternate universe, and happy news for Barry's dad.
We're one episode away from the season finale, and Flash tries to clear all his supervillain prisoners out of town before Harribard's big attack. It's a dumb plan that goes poorly. But at least we get a huge battle scene out of it.
Barry sets a trap for Harrison while Joe tries to live Iris's life for her, which is totally a dick move, but we're really more worried about the whole Harrison thing, what with him secretly being a supervillain and all.
This week on The Flash: so many secret identities, so little time. The Flash faces off with a villain who can be anyone, and Cisco discovers the true Harrison Wells. Plus, yet another Arrow crossover.
