or decades, Luke Cage was a stereotype. Let’s call it like it is. It wasn’t just the way he talked. Everything he did from the way he carried himself to the villains he fought was a symptom of the era. A time where Marvel Comics was capitalizing on Blaxploitation movies to sell a character. Without the genre, why would anyone care about Luke Cage? Well, they didn’t…
If you don’t know, I love Kitty Pryde. I mentioned it on the previous podcast and to anyone who’ll listen. Issue No. 2 of the Marauders series just amplified that love for the character. Kate Pryde became the new Red Queen. That means she’s now part of the new council on Krakoa. Much to the chagrin of Sebastian Shaw. Her new position isn’t the only interesting change. It’s her personality as well.
Previously, on The Culture Comic Book News podcast, Old Man Wade and The Superior Woke Octavius discussed the new run of X-Titles. The six new X-titles are X-Men, New Mutants, Marauders, Fallen Angels, X-Force, and Excalibur. Since House of X and Powers of X were both incredible, there was going to be some pressure for those runs to be just as good. Those six comic books also have to carry continuity from the House of X and Powers of X. If the first issues of these runs are any indication of what’s to come, we’ll be in good hands. However, some of us may not have the loot to spend $3.99 or more every week on comics. So I’ll give you the 3 Old Man Wade X-titles to follow.

There are certain things that need to be in the show to keep authenticity. This series did an amazing job of combining the source material and making a show with a ton of potential. With this season only being 8 episodes, you have to get into things pretty quick. So things have to be changed.
Marvel Comics has a hero that may have the best growth we’ve seen to date. She went from a shy teenager with no fighting experience to a hero who’s helped save the universe on more than a few occasions. Her name is Katherine “Kitty” Pryde.
