Shut up, Ned! 

By G. P. Avants When a superhero takes a new turn in the direction of their life they are not the only one to adapt to a new situation. Like Micheal Keaton stated in Spider-man Homecoming, “The world is changing, boys. It’s time for us to change, too.” There is something about a retelling of a…

“Art Imitating Life”-Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman

By: John D. Pepe When I first saw that Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman I was a little disappointed because of my preconceived notions of what Wonder Woman should look like, i.e., Linda Carter, that being the Wonder Woman I grew up watching.

Web-elution of Spider-Man #3-The Goldilocks of Spider-Man

By: John D. Pepe I would argue, that from what I have seen so far, both from Civil War and the trailer to Spider-Man: Homecoming, that Tom Holland is the Goldilocks of the three incarnations of Spider-Man. Tobey Maguire #1 (too cold): I like the story in the original and I thought that he was…

Not a Perfect Dad, but One Perfect for you

Father’s Don’t Need to Be Perfect By John Pepe As Father’s Day approaches it makes me ponder fatherhood.  Am I the perfect dad?  Am I even a good dad?  At times my son looks at me as if I’m infallible (other times, not so much), and it harkens me back to when I was his…
