I guess I'm just having a hard time dealing with how easy Spider-Man was beaten by Tombstone. Unless they are going to explain a big strength upgrade I don't get it. Spider-Man would be dead by now if Tombstone who is much weaker beats him by putting him in a bear hug. The rest of the story can do whatever it wants, but it doesn't work for me knowing him getting beaten so easily doesn't really make any sense. How has he survived against so many more dangerous villains yet fucking Tombstone does a WWE move on him and actually beats him with it. Give Spider-Man the respect he fucking deserves!

May 31, 2021

I just can't get into this whole cyberpunk/magistrate storyline. I'm not really into the story and DC has already let us know what is going to happen with Future State. I have zero reason to buy Batman. I stuck around because it's Batman and I usually stick through bad storyline out of character loyalty.

Cable (2020) #6

Jan 7, 2021

This is my last issue of Cable until a new creative team is on the book. He came back and killed the old Cable because he was soft and was not capable of making the tough choices without his morals standing in the way. Fast forward to now. He is now a character that has more in common with a teen CW network character than the original Cable or even a soldier for that matter. Its not a terrible story or comic it just is not any Cable that I recognize. If you like teen cheese then this book is fine.

Who the hell are these critics on this site that give 90% of everything they read 10 stars? Everything can't be a 10. Its hard to take the critic reviews on here seriously sometimes. But this was a solid comic and series. Definitely not a 10 but was worth the read. But I am so glad this event is finally over. These huge events that span for months and have multiple tie ins and effect every storyline is really starting to turn me off in both dc and marvel. Sorry for the negativity but these events lose so much of their potential by dragging it out into nothing but a cheap cash grab.

Is there a point to this series?! Every issue is completely random and pointless. I have no idea where or if there is even a direction to this plot. 8 issues in and there is absolutely no point to the story. They are mildly entertaining. I get Deadpool is supposed to be funny and random. But come on, this is just ridiculous. Wasting money in hopes Deadpool becomes good again. Bring back joe Kelly.

Deadpool (2018) #15

Jul 23, 2019

I must say I am not a huge fan of the direction Marvel seems to be going with Deadpool. Thebfirst Deadpool I ever read was the first issue of the Joe Kelly run. I have his whole run and when I think what deadpool should be as a character is how he wrote him. Liefeld's Deadpool was actually pretty borung and cliche until joe and his crew made him into an actual character. But back to my point, Deadpool has turned into nothing butvstupid punchline after stupid punchline. Any comedy is gone because the jokes become so redundant. There is nothing deep about his character anymore and there is almost no plot anymore. Yes he is supposed to be random and crazy. But its like this whole decade for deadpool has been nothing but a neverending punchline with no substance.

Deathstroke (2016) #43

Jul 23, 2019

Good story. Stupid ending that doesn't make sense if you think about it. 1) how does he get hit by an arrow of all things?! She just happened to catch him on an off day?! 2) its an arrow. And he heals. And is the world's most deadly assasin. And she is a teenage green arrow!! 3) he heals 4) you should never have a comic character die from a gun or *ahem* an arrow. You have to look past the fact that they could be sniped out before they knew what hit them to even begin to consider comics even slightly realistic. So an arrow should not have even been in the discussion. 5) aaannnnnddddd... He heals. That doesn't even seem like it should do all that damage to Deathstroke. A well placed arrow takes down the terminator. Yay girl power!!! They can do stuff too!!!

This whole event is just meh. It's not terrible, but this whole event and all of its tie ins could have been covered in about 3 issues. The Cotati could have been so much more interesting if they added more than Quoi and Swordsman(I dont get why he is referred to as swordsman, its a plant with his memories). Off topic but the fact that Marvel is going out of it's way to show that the Black Panther is in charge is starting to irk me. We get it, he's black and "in charge".I have never in my 20+ years of collecting and reading Avengera there being a leader as anything more than a figurehead. They make it seem like there is now a chain of command and he is in charge. The Avengers are a group of heroes banded together for the same cause and do not "take orders" from anyone. They listened to Cap because they respected him, not because he was the "leader".

Future State (2021): The Next Batman #1

Jan 9, 2021

I just can't get past the fact that there is nothing Batman like about Tim Fox. He has no connection to Batman at all. Bruce traveled the world training in different ways and learning tactics. He pushed himself to be who he was. Yes the money helps of course,but he is supposed to be the best of the best and his training is what prepared him for it, not his money. What the hell has Tim Fox done that could have possibly prepared him to be Batman. And nobody better bring up him being in the military or something. No SF training is even close to being enough to be Batman. The only connection to Bruce Wayne is that DC decided to give all of Bruce Wayne's money to a more deserving black family. Why would he even want to be Batman? Why not be his own hero? (I know they are calling a random black dude "Batman"so they can use everything Bruce did to promote "new" character, im talking comic world). Why would Damien just let some turd that would get his ass handed to him by every Robin prance around ruining his father's legacy? I mean come on. I could put a Batman costume on right now and go fight crime in my city. But I'm not Bruce Wayne so I wouldn't really be Batman and I would be dead pretty fast. I didn't think FS: Superman of Metropolis was great, but it makes sense that his son will take up the mantle one day. I don't care how good the story is if I can't believe the current character that is Batman just isn't any where near good enough to be Batman.

Future State (2021): Justice League #1

Jan 12, 2021

Oh man!! I just can't stand how they are just so lazily creating new characters. "He did what the original Batman could not and truly saved Gotham". I ranted about this in another post but are we actually going to see how Tim Fox had the proper training to actually be Batman? He was a full grown adult when he was introduced. Where did he learn everything from? Hes like Rey in the sequels lol. But I was planning on skipping Justice League once I heard Bendis was the new writer anyway so I guess I don't care about the far future of Justice League or the near future of it either.

This review is more bashing these stupid events than anything just so anyone who reads this will be warned lol.Good artwork. But it was such pointless tie in to KIB. I'm so tired of Marvel and these big events. Let ONE writer make ONE storyline that doesn't have 50 tie in and spin offs that completely water down the story. It's bad enough they are making mini series but at least I can just skip those and miss absolutely nothing important to the main storyline. But it really grinds my gears when they add these tie ins to current runs of titles. Keep the forced tie in to Venom only since it shouldn't have been a huge event in the first place and should have been told in the pages of Venom.That being said next issue seems like it could be cool and back on track.

And I'm not trying to race bait or anything lol but wasnt hawkgirl as white as nightwing throughout this whole justice league run? She looks like she turned into a black woman with no explanation. And does the fact that martian manhunter is fighting mindhunter mean he already got past the omega titan?

It feels like every big marvel event is the exact same thing with a slight twist to the villain. They try and cram every big name hero in the books and it takes away from the story. Not every event needs every character. Sometimes less is more.

So I liked the issue but I am confused by the flashback of AL Simmons death. I'm like 99.99% sure Chapel was the one who killed AL. Was this changed at some point? I stopped collecting for awhile when I was in the military. I also don't like Wynn saying he taught Spawn. Wynn didn't teach AL anything. Al was an elite soldier and Wynn did nothing but give him targets. He wasn't a general either which is confusing me. He would have zero to do with his training so him saying he taught him is confusing as well. Does the writer not know Spawn's origin?

Nightwing (2016) #62

Jul 18, 2019

It was a decent issue. I thought the artwork was really good. I dont mind the whole ric grayson thing but he seems exactly like Dick Grayson but with no memory. They need to stop focusing on " the nightwings". They individually all suck as characters so none of them will be getting an expanded role when this storyline is over. And how has not one of these detectives not thought he is Nightwing already. I mean Nightwing disappears, they take his suits, and then someone with all of Nightwing's skills shows up and helps them. Plus he has the same mask pretty much. Terrible detectives lol

Nightwing (2016) #74

Sep 11, 2020

This only gets a 9 because Nightwing is finally back!!! The actual issue was hust ok overall. It was very rushed and I don't like how Dick was whooping Red Hood like he was a novice. But I get this issue is about Nightwing and his return so I wont judge too harshly. But I am just so glad this whole ric grayson saga is over. But I do think he should go by Rick from now on. That is a name no one under the age of 60 years old goes by anymore. His name is kind of a joke in this day and age. So overall im glad nightwing is back, but he should go by rick and not dick because its 1940 anymore.

I willnsay this is a great storyline but it's still over rated im ny opinion. It's slightly confusing the way they jump from the past to the present to the future. The alternate timelines made some of the impactful things a little less interesting knowing that they will simply get as many do overs as they need. That is lame. I also don't like these backup bodies they have stored for every mutant. It's going to be a huge mess continuity wise going forward, especially when eventually Hickman leaves. I mean damn near every character that dies comes back regardless. Now it's going to be the spiderman/ben reilly clone saga all over again. But with every single mutant instead of just good old spidey. So I will say this was a very good series. But I just think it is very likely this will cause all types of wierd alternate versions of multiple characters that are going to cause chaos for continuity in the mutant world.

It was entertaining enough for the mess of a story it is. After 4 issues of fighting doc ock saves the day and its like this series had zero importance. For Spencer's run or Spider-Man in general. How do 40 supervillains show up in NYC and not one of the 500 heroes in the area not show up to help? I think Spider-Man would have been justified texting one his super friends. And I still am waiting for this big Kindred payoff.

I know they are trying to turn qira and crimson dawn into this powerful group that moves behind the shadows but it just doesn't really work. They are trying to cram a story and make it feel important while setting it in between the small window between episode 5 and 6. Qira is no threat to the empire and by trying to make qira into too big of a player is hurting this story tremendously. I like her character and ochi has turned into one of my favorite marvel star wars comics characters but they need to stop adding too many things to finished plots. We all know what happened in the original trilogy. Marvel has no idea how to handle the star wars universe or they just aren't allowed to do anything original.

I thought this was a good starting issue for the new era of the jedi. Characters were diverse without it feeling forced(so far at least). Good pace, all the characters introduced were interesting. Sskeer is my favorite so far. I had a lot of doubts heading into this. I'm a big star wars fan from dawn of the jedi and kotor up to right before the sequels happened lol. But so far I must say I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Beware of the 1 star ratings, even 10 star ratings for that matter too. It was not perfect by any means but a 1 it definitely was not. Anyone who gave it a 1 had already made their mind up before they read it.

This is turning into a terrible comic and and feels more like a terribly written X book than a star wars book. The villains are just not doing it for me. The drengir are extremely dumb and boring. The Nihil are also dumb. When Avar Kriss was in the drengir control and they were like "no, she connects us all", that was very Jean Grey and not very jedi or force like. I'm souring very hard on this book. It reads like it is completely for children. I haven't found one character to be interesting or even likable yet. I'm only going to keep buying these in case they adapt the high republic into live action and they are worth something. Horrible comic. Terrible writing. No Star Wars feel other than they have lightsabers. The writer and editorial staff don't seem to understand the way the force works.

I like this book overall. But I just get so tired of them constantly having waller blow someone up 5 times per comic. I mean they are in arm's length of her all the time. Anyone of them could knock her fat ass out before she could react. Superboy(Match) could just eye laser her. I understand it's a comic and you have to take things with a grain of salt,but over reminding us readers 5 times per issue is unnecessary and makes the story hard to believe and a chore to read.

Good series but I thought the end was kind of stupid. Whoever this species is that created the reborns step in and stop everything. The explanation they give is about as lame as can be. We still know nothing about the reborn and the ending was anticlimactic. Hopefully this is not the end and we get some more.
