If I wasn’t too busy enjoying the classic heroism that Clark and Diana displayed, reveling in how ludicrous Magog has become, or even wondering why Circe and a group of goats called the Ani-Men could make me smile, I would have given this issue a much lower score. Count this as one of those comics whose ridiculousness, through sheer force, has tipped the scales in its favour. It’s ironic that Circe claims that Diana is just a device to illustrate that she is not to be trifled with, while Tomasi has proven the same with his use of Magog! His books have never failed to entertain, so I’m excited for the finish.

Comment on Spider-Gwen #1 by Dannyhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/03/02/spider-gwen-1/#comment-38228 Wed, 04 Mar 2015 15:50:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=45487#comment-38228 Oh, for sure. I pretty much just like using code names as much as possible. :)
But as for Castle, it will be interesting to see if he is a family man or what, and whether his obsessive behaviour is something he always has or if it’s something born truly from his “Punisher” persona. It’s the kind of use of a character that will say something about BOTH versions. Also, he’s not as obvious a go-to character when paralleling a Spider-universe, so it makes for an intriguing addition

Maybe we will get to see the birth of all new Punisher :)

I really liked JJ as mayor, and I’m sad that the regular continuity has decided to give up on that.
Also, it’s hard to remember sometimes that the Punisher originally started out as an antagonist for Spider-Man back in the day.
Now with Spider-Gwen we get to explore those avenues anew.

Benjamin “The Thing” Grimm as a beat cop, still getting punked by The Yancy Street Gang. :)

Frank “The Punisher” Castle as a tough as nails detective.

A little cluttered but it all makes sense, also of course J.J will be mayor here.

What’d I miss there?

I was hasty. As someone who’s been living in various parts of Asia for about eight years now, I try to be sensitive to that, and I slipped in this case. Thanks for pointing that out.

Comment on The Flash: Fallout by Dannyhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/02/19/flash-fallout/#comment-38184 Sat, 21 Feb 2015 13:25:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=45298#comment-38184 I guess I just don’t like Firestorm, because these two episodes have been pretty lackluster for me. The characters raise themselves just barely enough above the “one’s a college age hunk, one’s a cantankerous old coot! Together they fight crime!” kind of oversimplification. Of course there can’t be depth because they’re essentially done-in-ones, here to highlight the people we care more about, namely Caitlin and the rest of the supporting cast.

And yes, it’s silly that they can just walk into someone’s house and leave their equipment all over the place.

Anyway, what I really wanted to comment on was that General Eiling is played by Clancey Jones, who also happens to play the Red Hulk in the recent Hulk and the Agents of SMASH cartoon, or in other words, also happens to play General Ross. Too funny.

Having to share a body with another guy where you can each read each other’s thoughts and feelings? I think that might get old pretty quick. But I suppose it does set up some interesting character development potential for Stein and Ronnie as they realize what it really means to be bound to somebody in that way. Also, two more people learn Barry’s identity: Stein and his wife. Sometimes it seems in these CW shows that far too many people are finding out the heroes’ identities.
