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 read a couple of the Moon Knight comics before. It’s safe to say that eps 1-4 weren’t nominal. Ep 5 was like a 10/10.

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 for Spider-Man No Way Home, and after the stellar Wandavision and Loki, there’s a lot of space for good TV. And Disney+ needs it. How does it fare?

Externals: the Ultimate Marvel Shit Show

This year hasn’t been the greatest for the MCU so far. With Shang-Chi lowering the bar significantly since the last few movies of 2019-2020, it’s been quite bleak. I thought that Eternals would be the next Avengers, but the bar was quite low after Black Widow and Shang-Chi. I was very disappointed.

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.

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).

Captain America Disc Launching Shield: Pretend You’re the First Avenger

Just like many people, I saw Captain America recently. While it doesn’t compare to The Dark Knight, it was still fun to watch the Captain beat up some Nazis. If you enjoyed watching Steve Rogers grow from 98 lb. weakling to patriotic superhero, you might want to check out this Captain America-inspired shield, that will help you take care of your own enemies.
