As far as superheroes go, the Avengers have always been fairly vanilla — the apple pie of the Marvel universe, if you will — which is why it’s a bit jarring to finally see them fighting against (and eventually alongside) “enhanced” beings like Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was similarly odd to see them interacting with Vision, especially considering how otherworldly he looks.

Last night was a very lucky night for the 30 fans in attendance at Midtown Comics’ special invite only Q&A with Brian Michael Bendis. Not only were these 30 winners chosen at random from over 300 entries, but they walked away with exclusive signed variants, pre-orders of the highly anticipated The United States of Murder Inc., and great stories from an intimate evening with Bendis (we’ll get to those stories in a minute).

Before we begin I just have to say that I’m going to have a little trouble reviewing this film, because I don’t know if it’s physically possible to talk about a movie while jumping up and down with joy. I am of course here to talk about the much anticipated Marvel film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and normally when I review a film I like to keep people guessing as to my opinion, I like to jump between pros and cons, but with this film I have to come out and just flat out say that not only does this movie succeed as a thriller, an action film, and as a pure joy ride, but it succeeds at all of those things better than I thought it possibly could. I’ve been weighing all the parts of this film and I honestly can’t find much in here that didn’t have me grinning and applauding for hours.
