I like to read comic books and write about them!
The First Five People To Be Captain America
So for the next few posts we're going to speak about the people that have been Captain America over the years! You can expect to see some familiar faces and some... not-so-familiar faces as we go through the coming lists. You'd be surprised how many people have claimed the mantle of Captain America. The reason that we are not covering all of the characters in one post is because there are so many of them. Let's get started.
A Wholesome Spider-Man Series!
The ongoing series, written by Tom Taylor puts the Friendly Neighborhood in "Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man." Every issue from this series is very well written, further solidifying my opinion that Tom Taylor is an absolutely fantastic comic book writer. Tom Taylor and the illustrator, Juann Cabal, create very touching and visually pleasing stories. This series is bound to make you feel many emotions, you'll laugh, you'll feel sad, and everything in between.
Zombie Outbreak in the DC Universe!
May 1st kicked off the DC's newest event with DCeased #1, which gives us the beginning of what will be a zombie outbreak in the DC Universe! This event is basically DC's version of Marvel: Zombies, and will likely give us zombie versions of our favorite DC superheroes. The first issue is written by Tom Taylor, the writer of the critically acclaimed Injustice (Years 1-3) comic book series. Meanwhile, the artists are Trevor Hairsine, Stefano Gaudiano and James Harren.
Who Is the Grim Knight?
For those of you who have read or are reading Batman Who Laughs, then you know exactly who the Grim Knight is and how he differs from the Batman we are all familiar with. This post is going to go over this Batman's origin, and what I like about the character.
Hulk vs. Weapon H! The Hulk Catches the Flu?
Ever since Weapon H was created in 2018, I've been hoping that he would fight either Wolverine, Hulk, or both because the character is a mix of the two. So when I saw that Hulkverines came out I was pretty excited. The story is written by Greg Pak with Ario Anindito doing the art. The title is connected to the Weapon H title and the current Immortal Hulk—run by Al Ewing. Before we get into the story though, let's talk about Weapon H because he is not a well-known character.
A New Green Lantern?
The Young Justice comic book series has re-started in time with the debut of Young Justice season three. However, the two are not connected. Between the show and the comics, we find that the team roster is different. This post will focus primarily on the newest member of Young Justice, Teen Lantern. The introduction of this character raises quite a few questions.
The Personas of Jason Todd
Most people that are familiar with Batman know that he usually has a sidekick at his side, a Robin. Over the years there have been a number of Robins that have fought crime with Batman. In this post, we are going to talk about Batman's second Robin, Jason Todd. The character has gone through many changes throughout his publication history and has had many alter-egos in the past. We are going to go over all of the various personas that Jason Todd has used since his debut as Robin all the way up to the present day.
Alternate Versions of Spider-Man: Vault of Spiders #1
Continuing with the various versions of Spider-Man throughout the Marvel Multiverse, we will be looking at one of the Spider-Verse tie-ins that highlights some stories of different versions of Spider-Man. In this post, we will be going over Vault of Spiders Issue #1. Just so you know, the stories that these Spider-people are featured in are all very short, which is why their entries are so short. Some of these versions were also recently created which is why they don't have their official Earth-designations.
Alternate Version of Spider-Man: Flash Thompson
I'm actually glad that Marvel is making What If stories again because they give us different spins on the characters we love, but also it gives writers the chance to write the stories they want with the heroes they want without messing up continuity and making the hero seem out of character. And since I am mostly writing about the Alternate Versions of Spider-Man until the release of Into the Spider-Verse in December. In this post we will be looking at What If? (2018) #1. This is a self-contained story that does not relate to the Spider-Geddon event. It merely takes place on a different Earth and follows Flash Thompson's story alone. In order for you to understand the importance of Flash Thompson being Spider-Man, you need to know the character's history.
Alternate Version of Spider-Man: Spider-Punk
Because we are nearing the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse I am posting about the alternate versions of Spider-Man that have appeared in Marvel comics. These posts will vary from explanations and origins of lesser known versions of Spider-Man to lists of lesser known facts about various versions of Spider-Men. In this post, we will be focusing on Spider-Punk. Because of his small number of appearances, I am going to summarize the character's entire publication history into this post.
PS4 Spider-Man Meets Superior Spider-Man! (Spoilers!)
Okay so we are getting into Spider-Geddon #0. Most of it was because the Spider-Man from the recently released PS4 game makes his first comic appearance. I just want to say really quickly that the Spider-Man game is absolutely amazing, and if you can you should really check it out. It is one of the best superhero video games I have played in quite a while. Before we go in any further there will be spoilers for both the Spider-Geddon #0 issue and the Spider-Man video game.
The Versions of Wolverine on 'Earth-616' (Main Marvel Universe)
If you are reading mainstream comics recently, then you may know that there are quite a few Wolverines running around in the main Marvel Universe. Some of these Wolverines are children of the original Earth-616 (Main Marvel Universe) or are alternate versions of Wolverine. This may be daunting for new comic book readers because there's just so many Wolverines. So to clear things up, let's get into the Wolverines that are present within the Main Marvel Universe at the moment. This means that we will not be going into various versions of Wolverine in the Multiverse unless they are present on Earth-616 at the moment.
