“Spiderous-Man: First Day Back”& “Space Saga Side Story: Rebel Girl And Her Crew”
A new “Spider-Man: Homecoming” trailer came out last week and it was pretty cool I guess. Although, all the best part of it are “Iron Man”. In fact I’d MUCH rather see another “Iron Man” where mentoring “Spider-Man” is a subplot. There’s a whole article about how the “Marvel” movies need “Spider-Man” at CBR.com (which is here https://goo.gl/fkZVbm ) and I couldn’t disagree more. Don’t get me wrong it was nice to see “Spider-Man” in “Civil War” and it worked. But need is a strong word. No the “Marvel” movies NEED the “X-men” because without them they’re forced to use “Inhumans” and “Inhumans” suck. Without “X-men” the “MCU” has no good allegory for minorities because again “Inhumans” just don’t work as well.
On to “Rogue One”. Gotta say not hyped at all. I got my doubts about this one. For one thing I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t think “Star Wars” films work without “Han Solo”, and by “Han Solo” I mean “Harrison Ford”. Watch the original trilogy again and try to imagine it without him. I think you’ll find a MUCH less interesting set of movies. Second it’s a prequel (a side story prequel at that) and sure it’s almost impossible it won’t be better than “Episodes I-III” but that still doesn’t mean it’ll be good. That being said of course I’ll almost certainly see it Saturday…
Tomorrow these guys return to talk some more about “Space Saga”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Special-Girl, Mr. Mystic, & Luscious Trapp On Who Voted For Who
Let’s talk about some pretty unrelated comics. “Civil War II” 7 came out last week and I saw a pretty glowing review of it on CBR.com. Supposedly, this issue was suppose to turn the whole thing around (Note: SPOILERS AHEAD)… Nah, son. This series is just dumb. It starts with the guy that can predict the future that everyone is fighting over suddenly being about to actually go to the future/other realities and he’s in the “Old Man Logan” world. Starting off with “Inhumans” and “Old Man Logan” that’s 2 big minuses in my book. The guy talks to “Old Man Logan” and he’s a dick to the guy and won’t answer his questions. “Logan” then says something like “Stark pushes her to far” or something. This part feels like it’s they just needed to add pages. Then we pick up from last time where it was predicted that “Miles Morales” kills “Captain America”. So naturally everyone involved does whatever they can so that doesn’t happen. Oh wait no “Miles” and “Cap” meetup right where this is suppose to happen “to prove that it won’t happen”. “Captain Marvel” once again being reasonable and fair calls off cops from taking “Miles” in and tries to get “Miles” away so he doesn’t end up somehow killing “Captain America”. Then “Iron Man” attacks her in some “Hulkbuster” version of “War Machine’s” armor. Then it looks like “Captain Marvel” kills “Iron Man”. Dumb!
“Death Of X” 4 also came out. The whole series comes down to this. “Cyclops” is dead and his death is lamer than the death most people think he had. Also the “Inhumans” aren’t just terrible character their terrible people as they actually fight the “X-men” so they can’t stop this cloud that’s killing them because it creates more “Inhumans”. Dumb!
Tomorrow Lou and Mystic see who Quickie and Hell’s Hunter voted for. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
