Apr 5th, 2019 Action, Adventure, Superheroes Marcus Goh 10 min read

This April, the second most powerful DC superhero hits the big screen – Shazam! This big, buff red character is almost as powerful as Superman and has a very similar power set, just that he wields lightning bolts instead of heat vision. In fact, he’s even gone toe-to-toe with the Big Blue Boy Scout in the comics. But how much do you know about this…

5 of the cutest versions of Spider-Man you’ll ever see

We all know the web-crawler’s signature look – lanky, with giant googley eyes and (sometimes) webbed armpits. Regardless of who’s portrayed him in the films – Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, or Tom Holland, he’s still got the same, identifiable look. Even the animated versions of Spider-Man follow the same basic look of Spider-Man, like the upcoming animated version of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Now, if you’re…

From an Asian true believer: Stan Lee, you made mine Marvel

It was a day, just like any other, when the news of Stan Lee broke. I had just been playing the new PS4 Spider-Man game the night before and seen Stan himself make a cameo there. He was a short order cook in a cutscene where Peter and Mary Jane… talked. Then the messages started coming in, fast and furious. Stan Lee had passed on….

If you’re a true DC fan, you probably dig one of their longest running animated series – Teen Titans! First debuting in 2003, the show ran for five seasons and a movie (Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo), before returning as a more kid-friendly version, Teen Titans Go! – which has also spawned five seasons and their lat est movie, Teen Titans Go! To The Movies!…

You know Thanos, that big purple bad guy in Avengers: Infinity War? It turns out that he’s also playing another leading Marvel character in Deadpool 2 – Cable! If you’re even a casual fan of the X-Men (or you watched the 90’s X-Men animated series), you’ll know how important Cable is to the X-Men mythos. That’s why him appearing in Deadpool 2 is so important –…

12 times ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ paid so much attention to detail that it’s a shame if you didn’t notice them

Avengers: Infinity War has officially become the biggest superhero film in history, with topping the $1.5 billion mark so far (thanks to it opening in China this week). But it’s not just a superhero slugfest of epic proportions or a massive video game come to life. There’s more than meets the eye to Avengers: Infinity War than just fast-paced quips and explosive action. There are plenty…

4 characters we think will die in Avengers: Infinity War (and 3 who will survive)

The answer to that is a copout, of course – half the Avengers will die in Avengers: Infinity War. After all, the trailers have shown Gamora saying that Thanos’ goal is to kill off half the universe – by assembling the Infinity Gauntlet. You see, all those world-ending artifacts that we’ve seen in previous Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies are actually the six Infinity Stones….

Justice League’s worst kept secret: Superman’s going to come back to life

Quick, name the members of the Justice League in your head. Even if you can’t recite all of their names (pfft, Cyborg’s a Teen Titan, no matter what anyone says), there’ll always be one name on everyone’s list. Superman. Yet almost all Justice League posters and media have been conspicuously omitting Superman from it – since he died in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice….

5 painful symptoms of aging for a mutant like Wolverine

Mar 5th, 2017 Action, Adventure, Drama, Superheroes Marcus Goh 6 min read

Logan is one of the most painful X-Men movies ever to grace the silver screen. It takes the sole member of the X-Men who can survive a nuclear explosion, the one character that is literally unkillable – and shows you that even he isn’t safe from the ravages of old age. In case you forgot, here’s Wolverine getting burnt to a crisp by an atomic…
