Good Intro, No?

Chloe Sullivan
You are most like Chloe Sullivan.


What Smallville character are you most like?
brought to you by Quizilla

I took a completely different Smallville quiz and I was "hot stuff" Lana Lang. (There were no pictures.) While Chloe is not unattractive, I'm less likely to defile myself...

On the episode last night, I have to say that this was the best episode of the season. I was worried that the season would lose steam but I was clearly wrong. I also was worried that the episode would totally screw with contituity but, for now at least, Perry just thinks he imagined the whole thing. Of course, one has to wonder why he doesn't ever seem to remember the incidents with Clark when Clark mysteriously disappears at the sign of trouble and someone with the same powers as Clark exhibited shows up but then no one ever seemed to notice Superman was Clark without glasses and perhaps a different hairstyle...This episode does explain how Clark was able to get a job with the Planet so easily though. On an odd note, the solar flare aspect was interesting considering that there really is major solar flare activity right now. There was no way the producers or WB or whomever plans the order of the episodes would know that. A comment on that storywise though: wasn't this done on Lois and Clark or Superboy or perhaps both? Continuity wise, if something hapened to you in high school and college would you know what would happen as an adult?

As always, Angel rocked. I loved how everyone acted differently. Wesley and Fred drunk, Gunn urinating everywhere...Yay! Harmony returned! They need her to appear more. Yes, I know she'll apear in 17 episodes ths season total out of 22 but thats not enough! It doesn't occur to me often anyway, that Angel could have meaningless sex and not lose his soul which shows you just how nasty that curse is since one would normally think the opposite would be true. A side note on that, as an employee of an evil law firm, I can imagine Eve would know some tricks in this department.

In case anyone cares, and judging by the lack of reviews, no one really does, "The Death of Sister Teresa" has been updated. I also reworked the previous three chapters. Could my writer's block finally be lifting? Oddly, I'm now reading The Sinner by Tess Gerritsen in which a nun was murdered...

Thor Or Thunderstrike?

Marvel screwed the pooch with the Thor  franchise from the beginning. They took the more modern notion that the Asgardians are aliens not gods. In itself, that's fine but I can't help but think that just made it more complicated not less. (Wonder Woman  just killed them off which is better but that's still a big nitpick from me about THAT movie...)

I stopped regularly reading comics  after I graduated college in the early part of the century so I don't know when secret identities became passé but I think this also hurt the franchise. Originally, instead of dropping Thor on his head and giving him amnesia, Odin put him the mortal body of Donald Blake and then Eric Masterson. (Was that a complaint about Ghost Rider? Same concept really...)

In Thor: Ragnarok, to me, this '90's era of the comic where Eric Masterson WAS Thor was the best run of the comic and there were many Easter eggs from that period from Thor's Earth garb (with Mjolnir disguised as an umbrell…

Wasn't A Complete Punishment

Checking my Facebook Memories this morning, it is apparently the anniversary of my review of Jessica Jones.  In many reviews of  The Punisher Jessica Jones  is the pinnacle all other Marvel Netflix (or in some cases, Marvel shows on any network but that's a post for another time...) must be held to. I'll tell you straight out, I personally enjoyed both seasons of  Daredevil  more so... (Hell,  The Punisher  had a less annoying support cast...)

For reasons I didn't consider back then and don't care about now, comic books in the '90's saw the creation of more violent  characters to presumably dispel the notion comics weren't just for kids. Ironman, Thor, Captain America and, perhaps ironically, Batman got more gritty counterparts and the Punisher (and Deadpool) was created. Like most superheroes, Frank Castle's origins begin with the death of a family member; in his case, ALL OF THEM. In comics, it was due to be caught in the crossfire of a mob shootout…

Sunday Morning Movie Review

Black Panther was great. Just as  Wonder Woman  gave little girls a superhero to "look up to," little African boys (Yes, not just African American  boys) have their own hero. But what was even better about this movie is that it was so much more. It wasn't a stereotypical Eddie Murphy or Whitney Houston movie.  Even 5, 8 years ago, we wanted this to happen but this might have been just the right time. T'Challa is king of the fictional African nation of Wakanda that millennia ago became rich in a fictional mineral called vibranium that allowed them to  become the most technologically advanced country on Earth. They decided to keep this secret, however, and disguised themselves with a cloaking shield and the guise of a "shithole country." (See? Relevance!)

Wakanda has reached a crossroads. Xenophobia is really no longer working. The villain of the movie, Wakandan by blood but certainly not upbringing, Killmonger, takes the throne in an effort to take the Black…
