Hasbro’s Daredevil SDCC 2017 Exclusive Unveiled

It’s almost that time of year again.  That’s right, Comic Con is just around the corner.  San Diego has been host to the pop culture convention for years, and now it’s become a mecca not only for comics, but for toys.

Hasbro has unveiled it’s Legendary Daredevil, which will be $59.99 available at their booth.  If there are any left over I would imagine they would be available on Hasbro’s website.  This is not the Daredevil that is currently played by Charlie Cox on Netflix.  It does include some pretty awesome artwork from Joe Quesada.

Daredevil will be part of the Defenders on the Netflix show.  If you’re a Daredevil fan, check this out.  I think it looks amazing.

Iron Fist #1 Comic Review

Iron Fist is a marvel character that I knew nothing about until I started watching the Netflix original series this week.  After binge watching the show, which I highly recommend checking out, I did decide check out some of the comics.

Iron Fist is not a new character, however there is a new Iron Fist #1 that was just released.  I read through it quickly and I really liked it.  In the comic, he’s seems to be losing his Iron Fist powers which he draws from the chi force of K’un-Lun, which was destroyed.    Needless to say, Iron Fist is having an identity problem, since when he’s not Iron Fist, he’s Danny Rand.

Danny Ran is having a rough time finding himself, and begins frequenting a bar where whisky is his friend.  Until opportunity arises and Danny just may have a chance to find answers, and maybe even restore his power.

This was just the first issue of the comic, so this is where is 2017 storyline will begin.  Danny is a master of Kung Fu and even though his Iron Fist power is fading, he can still hold his own.

I am looking forward to the series.  He is an interesting character who doesn’t just fight but also has a very real human emotion side to him.  Making him easy to relate to on a few levels.

They leave us with Danny sailing off to find answers.  I can’t wait to take the journey with him.

Logan Has Arrived in Theaters

I’ve found myself over the years increasingly becoming a fan of the X-Men.  We all understand their mutants, and each has their own different specialty.  But Logan, he was deeper than the rest.  He had a past that we (as viewers, I’m sure the comic book readers saw) never really saw.  Sure we knew he could be violent.  That was always kept to a PG status.

Logan is a complex deep character.  Always has been. Even before this stand alone film.  There was so much to be seen and felt and learned in this film about Logan.  A lot of emotions were felt, not just for him but also for Charles.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers.  But if you are a fan of the X-Men, or maybe just a fan on Wolverine, please take time to see the film.    It may surpass your expectations or be dead on.

I found myself loving this film, fight seems, under tones, and character development.  I highly recommend it to any fan out there who even remotely likes X-Men or Logan.

Kelly Sue Deconnick Leaves Captain Marvel

Carol Danvers will never be the same.
Kelly Sue Deconnick will be leaving the Captain Marvel series. At HeroesCon the writer announced that she will not continue on with Captain Marvel after Secret Wars this fall. Sighs could be heard around the room from her legion of fans.
Deconnick explained that once the Captain Marvel film was announced she would have to ” dig in for three more years or drop the mic.”
Deconnick made some changes when she took over writing Carol Danvers. Most notably changing her name from Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel. She also implemented a costume change.
Deconnick has made a huge impact on the series with fans calling themselves “Carol Corps”. The film has even taken on the Captain Marvel name, which shows just how powerful her influence has been to the series.
