EPIX Gives Billy the Kid a Sympathetic, Vengeful Backstory

Per Matt The wild, wild West has always fascinated me. I’ve enjoyed all sorts of Western tales throughout the years, with True Grit and 3:10 to Yuma being a couple of favorites (along with their remakes), as well as Eastwood’s… Continue Reading →

Moon Knight May Be Too Complicated for Viewers

Marvel Comics has many properties to pull from. The MCU is already filled with some of the most beloved characters of all time. From Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man to Black Widow, Guardians of the Galaxy and the Scarlet… Continue Reading →

The Riddler May be The Batman’s Greatest Villain

Riddle me this. Riddle me that. Who’s the biggest threat to the big, black bat? It’s a question that has been presented to Batman fans since the character was introduced. For many (including myself) the only true threat that the… Continue Reading →

The Tick’s Strength of Characters

More superhero shows should be as enjoyable as The Tick. It’s light and funny, without being too goofy. It has some great fights and action scenes, which are always important to a superhero show. Its narrative is tight and compelling,… Continue Reading →
