    She-Hulk: The MCU’s Necessary Low-Stakes Interlude

    In case you didn’t notice, there was more than one popular television show with a Green Wedding last week. At the wedding in the sixth episode of Marvel’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (“Just Jen”) we saw a lot less homicidal rage and a lot more villains slipping on ice and class-action divorce settlement hijinks. Instead […] More

    Ms. Marvel Rekindles Some Much Needed Magic in the MCU

    If I can explain Ms. Marvel in one word, it would be adorable. Disney’s secret recipe for appealing to children continues to improve upon its ingredients. At one time, Disney only produced stories set in the past. The tales of Snow White, Cinderella, and Aladdin were far from contemporary settings. That is until Pixar came along with Toy Story. However, […] More

    Hawkeye: The MCU’s Passing of the Torch

    With four shows under their belt, Marvel’s expansion into Disney+ is now feeling more and more like an integral part of the bigger Marvel Cinematic Universe, and none feels more essential then the recently wrapped up season of Hawkeye.  Hawkeye feels like the MCU’s equivalent of comfort food—a rich, filling, yet refreshingly low stakes meal […] More

    What If…? S1E2: “What if T’Challa Became a Star Lord?”— A Love Letter to Chadwick Boseman

    What If…?  S1E2 “What if T’Challa Became a Star Lord?” picks up steam from Episode 1. Whereas that plot was a fairly straightforward switch of Peggy Carter into the role played by Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger, S1E2 makes the ripple effects of the character switch go much deeper. T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) […] More

    The Loki Season Finale Brings the Madness

    Poor Loki. After six episodes of fan theories and anticipation, the Loki season finale (“For All Time. Always.”) shifted viewers from fantasy character study into full-blown Marvel madness.  As always, the performances were stellar. While there’s been some debate as to whether or not Loki’s character was diluted for this show (we’ll talk more on […] More

    Loki S1E5 “Journey into Mystery” and the Marvel Multiverse

    The fifth episode of Marvel’s third Disney+ series wraps up many of Loki’s character arcs and prepares us for the crazy new MCU content we’re going to get in the finale. To start: it appears that Loki and Sylvie’s titular Nexus Event from S1E4 was not just a potential romantic connection, but their choice to […] More

    Someone Good: Loki S1E4 “The Nexus Event”

    Loki S1E4 “The Nexus Event” hit us with a million different whacks to the head from every direction. (There’s a reason this article is coming out two days post-airing.) The completion of Loki’s first character arc, Marvel’s meta-examination of villainy, commentary on religious extremism or bureaucracy, Sylvie’s backstory, how the Timekeepers connect to the greater […] More

    Loki Is Bi! (and Other Things) in Loki S1E3 (“Lamentis”)

    We have come to a glorious, glorious point where Loki consists solely of brilliant character work set against a backdrop of comic book easter eggs, goofy sci-fi junk, and underhanded social commentary. I love it dearly. Loki S1E3 (“Lamentis”) has dropped us at the end of the world—or, rather, someone else’s. At the end of […] More
