A lot of characters and teams deserve their own Marvel Netflix show. Shang-Chi, Blade, and Daughters of the Dragon immediately come to mind. It would be so easy to make a list like “10-20 characters who need a Netflix show” – there are that many good options to choose from! There really is a lot of potential out there, but my top pick has remained the same for the past few years: Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight.

Iron Fist vs Shang-Chi

Article by Gregg Katzman. Unless you strongly disagree with this list, then it definitely isn’t by Gregg.

To celebrate Marvel and Netflix’s new Iron Fist show and the new Iron Fist comic series (by Ed Brisson and Mike Perkins), we’re going to list some of the other top hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel Universe! Obviously, the Marvel Universe is a biiiiiiig place and it’s full of talented fighters, so some of your favorites may not appear below. Seriously, we’d have dozens and dozens of names on an “honorable mentions” list – Moon Knight, Deadpool, Taskmaster, so on and so on! If you feel like there’s a Marvel character who deserves some extra respect, give them some love in the comments – feel free to make reading recommendations to your fellow fans, too!

Bloggerinos! Raph here, back from a long absence. The reason for this absence is a sad one: I’m no longer a member of the Midtown Comics Times Square staff. I’ve spent the last six years at Midtown Comics Times Square, two of them as the floor manager, and I’ve made a lot of friends and had a lot of terrific memories. Here are just a few memories I’d like to share with you.

Okay, so a lot of you out there might be thinking “I want to start reading the Avengers, but there are so many titles out there, what’s the difference between them? Are they all really Avengers books? Do I have to read them all to know what’s happening?”

Well don’t worry, I’m here to help as I’ve written a breakdown of what each of the “Avengers” titles are currently about, what audience they are aimed at, and of course, answering whether or not it actually is about the Avengers.

Posted by in: Opinion | Comments Off on MARVEL TV – Taking over, one screen at a time.

That all changed very recently. More after the break.
