At the dawn of the Marvel Age, the company introduced new characters who had to deal with real world problems in a universe that was a fictional parallel of our own. In the mid 1960’s, as the Civil Rights movement was gaining steam, Marvel began introducing characters who would redefine an industry dominated by the idea that heroes had a tendency to come in only one color.

Marvel and Netflix’s first series, Daredevil, was a great, character-driven escape from all of the big screen spectacle that’s seen in Marvel Studios’ films. The stakes were no longer global or even just national – they were confined to part of a city, and the multiple hour-long episodes gave viewers a much better chance to delve into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of New York and the interesting characters who populate it. Now, we’re getting a chance to further explore the MCU’s Big Apple as another hero steps into the spotlight: Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). The series will be available on Netflix this Friday (11/20/15), but we had a chance to check it out early. So far, it’s a terrific follow-up to the Man Without Fear’s show!

Marvel Entertainment is going to conquer the world… the entertainment world, that is. Between the movies, cartoons and comics, Marvel pretty much controls a large portion of the entertainment market.
Then Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted, and while the series has been unsteady, it’s another finger in another pie for Marvel.
That all changed very recently. More after the break.
