Hypothetical TV: X-Men: Children of the Atom Hypothetical TV: X-Men: Children of the Atom

This is pretty much a jumble of ideas, but I really do think it could work. And the first season of the show could lead into the first Uncanny X-Men movie, with subsequent seasons being what happens between each film in the franchise.

Well, this is some forking bullshirt.

Watch this video. I hardly ever post videos without commentary, but this one really doesn’t need it -- it says everything it needs to say and ends absolutely beautifully. So just watch it.

What to Do With Wally West What to Do With Wally West

The last issue of Heroes in Crisis came out last week and with it came some pretty significant revelations and twists. Let’s talk about what happened with Wally West and where to go from here.

The Five Best Scenes from Doom Patrol The Five Best Scenes from Doom Patrol

Doom Patrol wasn’t just a great show; it was a revelation. It was the first show to really gives us the weirdness and meta-ness of a Grant Morrison comic. It gave us the completely and utterly bonkers, while also giving us well-written and well-developed characters, grounding an insane show with some of the best…

Who Should Write Batman? Who Should Write Batman?

Since 2006, the main Batman book has been dominated by three writers with long (and sometimes controversial) runs: Grant Morrison, Scott Snyder, and Tom King. And now that Tom King will be leaving the book for a Batman/Catwoman mini-series, the question returns: who should write Batman?

Tom King to Leave Batman...and Begin Batman/Catwoman Tom King to Leave Batman...and Begin Batman/Catwoman

It was recently reported that Tom King, the current writer on Batman, would be taken off the book after issue #85. This was surprising, considering King began writing the book back when DC Rebirth happened and has enjoyed a critically acclaimed, if slightly controversial run, that was suppose to last 100 issues. In…

New Stumptown Trailer Gives Us the Maria Hill Show We Deserve New Stumptown Trailer Gives Us the Maria Hill Show We Deserve

We haven’t heard much about the new adaptation of Greg Rucka and Michael Southworth’s Stumptown over on io9, perhaps because it’s more “detective noir” rather than “superhero/sci-fi/fantasy/whatever the hell Riverdale is,” but the first trailer dropped a few days ago and it looks amazing.

How Do You Solve a Problem Like the X-Men? How Do You Solve a Problem Like the X-Men?

Disney and Marvel have stated that, now that they have the rights to the X-Men back, they won’t be making a X-Men film for at least four to five years. This makes sense – they have their own slate of films in production and pre-production right now, including Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and sequels to Black…

Does Sliders Deserve a Reboot? Does Sliders Deserve a Reboot?

When I was younger (so much younger than today), my favorite show (aside from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) was Sliders. It’s hard to imagine the impact the show had on my younger self — certainly it sparked my interest in science fiction and in alternate history. But it also sparked something else: the knowledge that…
