We saw Ant-Man this week and it was super fun! Coming after the more epic scale Guardians and Avengers movies, Marvel’s latest is a refreshingly down-to-earth comedy with heart and plenty of action — but mostly lots of laughs. While it’s technically a solo film compared to the team movies, Ant-Man is basically a superpowered heist flick, so you know he rolls with a team of quirky but lovable knucklehead offenders (primarily Michael Pena who steals the show more times you can count) — not to mention a huge army of several different types of ants, and a solid supporting cast.

On top of all this, Ant-Man has tons of organic ties to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a hilarious and surprisingly lengthy cameo from an Avenger which we won’t spoil, plus two great credits scenes — so make sure you stay til the very end!

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and we thought it would be fitting to review the best and worst Dads in the comic book universe!  After all, who would our favorite superheroes be without the guidance of their fathers?  Earth’s mightiest heroes didn’t get where they are today without a little guidance, and we find out which dads did well and which didn’t quite make the cut!

Midtown Comics wishes all Dads a very happy Father’s day!  Read on for the complete list!
