Listen in as the daddies in the group (re: not me) talk about their kids, life with their kids, and how crazy, but fun it is. But this is a comic show! There’s comic talk! Gotham’s pilot is reviewed! The Milo Minara “incident” with the Spider-Woman variant cover! Nick Fury being put away in the darkest corner of the Marvel toy box to collect dust and be replaced by a newer model no one asked for!

Captain America: Winter Soldier is the Marvel Cinematic Universe FINALLY doing Captain America justice. Every element of the Winter Soldier was executed so well, that when brought together, created a thrilling pseudo-spy action-thriller, with so few weak points, they are deemed mostly irrelevant. The supporting cast didn’t feel shoehorned in and rather felt like essential parts of the story. Whether you’re going to the theater to see Cap, Black Widow, Falcon or Nick Fury, the excitement never wanes, as each hero gets their opportunity to kick some ass.
Iron Man’s first foray into anime was a collaboration between Marvel and Madhouse back in 2010 with Iron Man: Animated Series. The 12 episode series was directed by Yuzo Sato based off of the story written by Warren Ellis. Marvel and Madhouse are teaming up again with Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, the direct-to-video follow-up to the animated series. This time around it’s written by Brandon Auman and directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki.
Garth Ennis is a writer who I’m quite familiar with; primarily from his incredible run on Punisher Max. On the other hand, 616 Nick Fury is not a character I’m all that familiar with. I know the basics, he has an eye patch and hangs out on SHEILD’s helicarrier. He’s also pretty much immortal or something to that extent. I don’t believe that my lack of knowledge about Nick Fury is a bad thing. On the contrary, I believe that it’s actually an asset in this case because it allows me to take a fresh look at the character without being biased by previous depictions of the character. I know Ennis was able to make the Punisher even more of a bad ass than he already was, so I’m approaching this book confident that he’ll make Nick Fury an equally compelling character.
