WTF Happened to the MCU?
I chose to skip watching Ant-Man 3 in theaters because the reviews looked so bad. I was happy I didn’t go see that turd. I have since watched it, and it’s pretty bad. Holy crap. So here I am, waiting to see if Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 would be any good. To my…

Nice, short holiday special, with funny parts including your favorite Guardians. B
Moon Knight: It Took Only 5 Eps For It To Be Good
Until this week, I have to say that Moon Knight was kind of average. Maybe a bit below average, especially for a MCU show. I’m not sure exactly what the goal of this show was. Maybe it was hit by delays and a decrease in scope because of the pandemic, I’m actually unsure. I have…
Hawkeye Season 1: Better Than Eternals & Shang Chi
There’s finally some more MCU content to watch. I went into this series with mixed feelings, a bit like Falcon & the Winter Soldier. Hawkeye has never been a character who I thought deserved his own series. But in a year which has been filled with bad releases, so far, for movies at least, except…

X-Babies: Before They Were X-Men
I don’t remember the exact issue in which the X-Men became babies, but I seem to remember seeing them as such, for a short while at least. Regardless, illustrator Skottie Young had his own vision of the super-powered tots and redesigned some of the classic X-Men as babies. Read more @ Technabob
Marvel Digital Mercury: Cheap Android Tablet, Still More Expensive than HP TouchPad
HP might have had to have a fire sale to dump their now-discontinued WebOS TouchPad tablets, but Marvel Digital’s Mercury Pad Tablet is running Android, so you’ll be safe with it. As tablets go, the Mercury has solid specs, but is still more expensive that the discount-priced $99 TouchPad (if you can still find one).…
Marvel Digital Smart TV Enabler Makes Dumb TVs Slightly More Intelligent
While the idea of a set-top box is nothing new, this box will allow you to stream digital content and to smarten your ‘dumb’ HDTV thanks to Android. It’s something useful if your TV isn’t ‘smart’ yet, and doesn’t yet allow you to access your home network to stream files. Read more @ Technabob
