Geek Speak: Still Outsiders

In today’s day in age, getting into comics is easier and less stigmatizing than ever. What with quarter yearly film releases of superhero movies. Streaming services. Apps to read comics. Funko Pop figures of every Deadpool variation. And loot crates, so you don’t even have to keep up with your geek culture, it’s processed and itemized for you. So, you’d think that the old issue by issue readers would rejoice in this renaissance, right? No, that is not the case. We are accused of gatekeeping, complaining about change, called racists, sexists, and homophobes. And why? Because we LOVE comics, we

Thank You 20th Century Fox!

AjfairnotBeen a nerd my whole life. Started with anime and cartoon not soon after Films, Comic Books and Video Games became what I enjoyed as well. Star Wars is the great franchise, but I do love Star Trek, Lord of the Ring, and Harry Potter. I want the nerd community to be kind to each other. Stop sending threats to each other and celebrities. I would love to engage in intense debate about the things we all love, not yell at each other and call people idiots just because they don’t agree with your opinions. I also love sports, boxing

Top 6 Times That Highlighted Kick-Ass Women in the Defenders Universe

It’s officially International Women’s Day and while I hope you are heading out to the theater to watch Captain Marvel, I also wanted to take a moment to give a nod to the kick-ass women in Netflix’s “Defender-verse”. The streaming service may have canceled all of their wonderful shows, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t appreciate every moment, because there’s a lot. It was hard narrowing down this list to just six and I know I have missed some, but here were the most satisfying moments within the Marvel/Netflix universe that really highlighted the kick-ass women in this franchise.

7 Gifs That Prove Klaus Is the True Rockstar of The Umbrella Academy

Oh, Klaus Hargreeves — The drug-addicted, hedonistic character from Netflix’s latest hit, The Umbrella Academy. He’s like a wildly addictive narcotic that you just can’t get enough of. Haven’t watched the binge-worthy series yet? Shame on you. But that’s okay, if you’ve been anywhere near the internet since the series debuted on February 15th, then you’ve likely witnessed the horde of tweets, memes, and mentions of the infamous Klaus. Between his killer wardrobe, spot-on comedic timing, ability to communicate with the dead, and tear-jerking love story, it’s no surprise he’s become such a fan favorite. Hats off to you, Robert

Fan-Casting Well-Known DC Villains

While it is the studios that decide on who gets to play what role, it is fun to sit and pick an actor or actress who you can see portraying a comic book character. Everyone has their fan-favorites and some may seem as unlikely as ever, but despite perhaps not being as exposed to the big wigs that determine the casting, it doesn’t mean certain people wouldn’t absolutely nail a role. That’s what I’d like to do today; give my completely personal opinionated choices for certain DC villains. Now this list is small and probably won’t match a lot of

Rocky: A Better Drama Than Action Film?

“Ah come on, Adrian, it’s true. I was nobody. But that don’t matter either, you know? ‘Cause I was thinkin’, it really don’t matter if I lose this fight. It really don’t matter if this guy opens my head, either. ‘Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody’s ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I’m still standin’, I’m gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren’t just another bum from the neighborhood.” -Rocky Rocky Balboa is a small time

Recap and Reactions to the 76th Golden Globe Awards

“Wait, is this real life? Like, this isn’t a joke?” No, that wasn’t my reaction to the 8 seconds of new Game of Thrones footage that we got last night. It was my reaction to the highway robbery that I, along with millions around the world, witnessed last night during the 76th Golden Globe. A night that opens up the award season, the Golden Globes are generally a predictor of what is to come at the Academy Awards. Let’s hope that’s not the case this year. Of course, the show itself wasn’t bad, as hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh
