April 28, 2013 5:32 pm Peter David's run on the current volume of X-Factor will have to be considered one of the best X-Team runs ever. I think David was always swimming against the current by working with B-list X-characters, but he fleshed out so many of those characters, and made them interesting. I suspect that David's run has seeded many ideas that future X writers will revisit.

April 25, 2013 10:00 pm At one point, Kang might have been considered the Avenger's arch enemy. He has been eclipsed by Ultron in the last couple of decades, though.
April 21, 2013 9:08 pm I thought this issue was great, too. The "Rosemary's Baby" theme was very creepy, and as you say, it appears that Gillen will be returning to this story at some point.
April 16, 2013 9:15 pm I'm not a big Superman fan, and I feel sympathy for anyone who tries to write a Superman story. How do you create a suspense with a character who is so powerful? It looks like Zack Snyder and whoever wrote the screenplay for this film found a way to create drama around this character. The visuals looks stunning, and I think a lot of the credit for that goes to Snyder, since all of his movies look great. All of the dialogue I've heard in the trailers sounds spot on. It looks like Warner found screenwriter(s) who could do this story justice.
April 16, 2013 4:12 pm I for one, am interested in the sequel to "300." Evidently, it takes place during the same war between the Greeks and the Persians, but during the naval battle. This is an important battle, both in terms of strategy and outcome. The richer, more numerous Persians were decisively crushed.
April 16, 2013 4:00 pm I am getting a bad, bad feeling about Iron Man 3. I have read about the filmmakers mocking the idea of the Mandarin and his "magic rings." As all real Iron Fans know, the Mandarin's rings are not "magic." They're the product of extraterrestrial technology. We haven't seen the Mandarin use his rings in any of the trailers, so I'm beginning to think that Shane Black turned the Mandarin into a terrorist with a fetish for bling. The trailers suggest that Black has produced yet another sequel to his horrid "Lethal Weapon" series. This time, Iron Man and Iron Patriot are the "cop" buddies who experience a lot of explosions. I hope my impressions are wrong.
April 3, 2013 4:01 pm What if one or more of Saldana's franchises end up shooting at the same time?
March 31, 2013 2:15 pm The first G.I. Joe movie was horrendous, simply horrible, so I won't rush to see the sequel. For critics who want to know what horrendous is, the first G.I. Joe should be your reference point. You can also reference all of the Mission Impossible movies, except for the second one, which was only ok, as being horrible. So, when a superhero movie like "Green Lantern" or a sci fi movie like "John Carter, comes out, you should ask yourself, "Was it as bad as "G.I. Joe?" Clearly "Green Lantern," and "John Carter" were far, far superior to "Joe," so the over zealously negative reviews for those films were way out of line.
March 29, 2013 11:06 am The Chitauri were the alien race in the Avengers movie. The Badoon actually have a very long history in the Marvel universe. In the far future of the original Guardians of the Galaxy, the badoon are one of the Galaxy's dominant empires while the Shi'ar, for instance, are no longer a mighty power.
