Secret Wars is next (which will apparently suspend/end every comic I currently buy from Marvel) and then after Secret Wars, Miles is an Avenger. I will not lie…I am not entirely sure I get what the post … Continue Reading The Ultimate Spidey
So…Frank Cho is under some understandable fire for a sketch he did of Spider-Gwen. Spider-Gwen is a teen Gwen Stacy from the recent Spider-Verse comic series. She has had a fairly successful start to her own series. Cho decided the best way to recognize the character is to do an … Continue Reading Feminists Are Not Trying To Break Your Toys
One genre that takes a lot of hits for diversity is Fantasy. And considering how often fantasy books can be very white (*cough*Game of Thrones*couch*) it is a just point. A common defense is that it is a set in a time and location where there were not non-white people. … Continue Reading But It Is Fantasy
I get the excitement behind doing a pre-origin show like Gotham or Smallville. But I think it puts interesting limitations that the showrunners are unwilling to abide by.

I watched the documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief last night on HBO. It is a compelling portrait of where belief and total faith The Church of Scientology refused to participate in interviews, so their crying out about how the documentary does not interview active Scientologists rings hollow. But the … Continue Reading Clearing the Way
I have to be honest…when it comes to online arguing, the minute I tire of a discussion, I tend to walk away. Sure I may come back to it later…but if I tend to just say my final piece and move on. Especially if you are a “Patriot” or Infowarrior … Continue Reading Quieting the Infowarrior
I am unsure what Nellie Andreeva is saying here. Okay. That is a lie. The short version is: There are to many non-white faced on TV these days. I am sure she would dispute this, claim I am misunderstanding her point. But, as is the case with any sea change, the pendulum … Continue Reading White Actors Need Roles Too!
Ted Cruz may end up being a wealth of hilarity folks. Just look at this: “I actually intellectually find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded,” he said. “And country music, collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me.” I find this intellectually … Continue Reading The Curious Case of Ted Cruz and Country Music

Hypocrisy. What is it? A lot of people seem to think it is “Do as I say, not as I did.” That is, however, not true. If I tell you that I did something in the past and tell you I think you would be better off not doing the … Continue Reading Crawling Towards Light
