A guy who was raised on comic books, sci-fi and the love of superheroes, thanks for that dad. I am also studying Film Production and Cinematography giving new insight into the craft.
7 Magical Girl Anime Series Worth Checking Out.
"Magical Girl" is a genre that really goes unused outside of Japan. It is a genre which sees young girls using magic to fight the forces of evil. Essentially being super heroines targeted at young female audiences, akin to Power Rangers. Something Japan started doing decades ago was to tap into an audience that was being ignored. Rather than leaving it as wasted opportunity, they filled the void and Magical Girls have been transforming and fighting evil for the last few generations to enjoy. Very few ever get the western dubbed treatment, but those that have have seen some success.
The Top 10 Evil Power Rangers
The multi-coloured, spandex wearing heroes have battled the forces of evil for over 25 years. But a tradition starting way back in the original series of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers saw evil Power Rangers enter the fray every now and then. Often these evil Rangers tend to be shadow versions of the heroes or a team member or two placed under a temporary spell for the episode. However, there have been plenty who were evil and around for more than a single episode. Here we will look at 10 of the best of these evil Rangers and how some left major marks on the franchise.
3 Reasons Why Marvel Should Recast the Black Panther.
Chadwick Boseman did a stupendous job at bringing T'Challa, King of Wakanda, to life on the big screen. Tragically, he lost his battle with colon cancer and fans are divided as to what should happen now. The options range from promoting Shuri to the new Black Panther, much like how the character took the mantle up for a time in the comics, to recasting a new actor to portray T'Challa and even some have suggested to leave Wakanda for good.

X-Antibodies are something only the most avid of Digimon fans will know about. Essentially it is a vaccine to protect Digimon from the X-Programme which was designed to wipe Digimon from existence.

To to protect the Digimon from erasure the X-Programme infused the Digimon with the X-Antibody. These new Digimon were first introduced in the 2005 movie, Digital Monster X-Evolution.
My Dogs Continue to Walk With Me Years After I Had to Say Goodbye.
Okay, firstly if you are a dog lover, you are likely to feel teary through this tale of mine. Secondly, to fully understand how two simple tattoos gave me peace, I must first take you back in time and tell you the full story.
The Boys Season 2, Introducing a New Character the Right Way!
The Boys was a superhero show that hit last year unlike any other. It offered a true perspective of how Superheroes would operate in today's world. With massive PR firms behind the Supes, they effectively get away with absolutely horrendous acts as the PR guru's behind them make twists in the stories of their super antics. With some if not all the heroes, this even comes down to their origin stories, to enable fans the chance to believe even more in these super-beings.
World Collide Again, the Sailor Senshi Reimagined as Pokémon Trainers!
Now this may seem crazy, but it is something I have done a few times before just for fun. That is to take characters from one franchise and reimagine them as Pokémon Trainers. Previously, I have used Marvel's X-Men characters to reimagine a Pokemon region, with a male a female protagonist, the professor of the region, the evil Team Brotherhood, the Gym Leaders, the Elite Four and the region champion all made from some beloved mutants. Another saw Ash and Pikachu arriving in a region where the characters from the Japanese franchise Precure cover the region. Which I wrote differently, telling the story of Ash's journey in the region.
10 Things Marvel Need to do to Avoid a Fourth Fantastic Four Flop in the MCU
To say the Fantastic Four films produced by 20th Century Fox are perhaps some of the most panned superhero films of all time would be kind. While their first two attempts were slightly more successful, their 2015 film reboot was a complete disaster. This has fans of the first family concerned that they will never get a good adaptation of the beloved comic book series.
