The Essence of Steve Rogers 

    By G. P. Avants I relate to super characters differently. I am sure by now with all of my Spiderman posts you have seen why he is my favorite superhero. The fact that he has the powers of a Spider is really only half of Peter Parker’s persona. He is a normal guy…

Daredevil Season 3- “Tapestry”

By: John D. Pepe My father told me growing up, on more than one occasion, that “The choices we make dictate our lives.” How true that statement is. That little piece of wisdom has stuck with me my entire life, helping guide my decisions, making me cognizant of the potential outcomes, both good and bad,…

Altered Carbon- “A World Without God”

By: John D. Pepe Altered Carbon is a 10-episode series on Netflix, one that I begrudgingly started watching because the one and only TV had been bogarted by my friends during our weekend trip.

It all Started When We Stirred the Nest

It all Started When We Stirred the Nest By G.P. Avants There is a time for all things. A time to be born, and a time to die, a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing, a time for peace and a time for war. In the film Solo A Star Wars…

Pop-Goes the Culture 

By G.P. Avants I want to thank our readers for indulging our wild ideas and different formats for our God Among Geeks and Neekology 101 pieces. Today we have a poetic retelling of a moment from the recent Marvel blockbuster, Infinity Wars. Here we are unwillingly rocketed into space onboard one of Thanos’ Black Order…

A Hero of a Guy

  By G.P. Avants I am writing this piece three days before I see Infinity Wars. Yes, I waited an excruciating week, avoiding social media, my fellow neek’s spoilers, and even Marvel fans in my classroom. I am waiting to see it with my wife and daughter on Sunday. But I have had time to…
