Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Episode 10 - "Leap"

Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Episode 7 - "Toldja"

As disparate this season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been, and despite my being the only person in the fandom to feel disappointed by last week's episode, I'm overall digging what I see. Even though I couldn't tell you what this season is...

The multiverse will ruin the MCU

Within my social circles, I'm known for my enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Heck, I even sat through all of Inhumans, if you want an idea of how much a completionist I am. But to the surprise of many, I'v...

Review: Avengers: Endgame

"Avengers assemble" is a stupid line. Actually, it's a stupid line when spoken out loud. In comics it's a great line. You've got the alliteration of the two As lining up in print. It rolls across the eyes when read and you can do some great...
