New Avengers 22: The Definitive Luke Cage Story

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…

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn Review

Birds of Prey is like an acid trip. Before you jump to conclusions, that wasn’t exactly a compliment. Depending on your connection with the characters featured throughout, Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (say that three times fast… go on, I dare you!) is either a bad acid trip or a good one. For all of its loud, adrenaline-filled action, it seemed to be missing a certain something that would leave you wanting more… or make you care if there is going to be a sequel.

The Culture Issue 14: New Red Queen. Who Dis?

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.

CCBN Issue 13: It’s All About the X-Men, Baby!

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.

Disney Plus or Disney Minus? Six Things That Need to Be Added to Disney Plus, Marvel Edition!

How could Disney finally debut the highly anticipated and potentially Netflix killing Disney Plus streaming service and not provide the content that fans everywhere have been clamoring for? It’s like parking your car, walking up to a Pizza Hut/Taco Bell full of glee just to find out the damn thing is now a Comcast customer service center… but we don’t talk about that. That day is now referred to as White Tuesday. Screw this, I’m boycotting until Disney gives us the content we need. My list of demands are simple:

The Boys: Changing Enough While Staying Close To The Source Material

The Boys has been a project I’ve been waiting for since I read volume 1 Name of the Game. Amazon picked up the comic book and turned it into a TV show. There’s an issue with a comic book becoming a movie or a show. How much of the source material will be used in the project? The Boys is a series that has be handled with delicacy. 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.

Black Lighting

Unapologetically Black Lightning

Black Lightning has become a popular show for a few reasons. One, it’s a good show that develops characters that aren’t just the main characters. Most shows will focus on a few characters forgetting how important it is to develop everyone. Second, a lot of fans didn’t know who Black Lightning was. This allowed the writers to explore the lore of the character without criticism. Third, the show makes it a point to focus on black issues and the culture without beating around the bush. Luke Cage was also like this, but not to the extent that Black Lightning goes.
