in Fiction by

Warning: major spoilers for upcoming episodes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl! It’s almost that time of year again. The time we look forward to all year, filled with festivities and lights and just the right amount of drama. No, we’re not talking about the holiday season and those awkward family dinners. Instead, it’s time to celebrate the annual CW superhero crossover, which only seems to expand with each passing year (and with each new show added to the lineup). At this point we’re crossing over four different shows, in a two-night event that promises to be insanely epic. On November 27th and 28th, the crossover event is taking over, with Supergirl and a special episode of…

in Fiction by

Warning: Slight Spoilers Ahead! 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the superhero. Not only are movie superheroes setting records and dominating at the box office (we’re still obsessed with Wonder Woman!), but they’re taking over fall TV as well. From new shows, like The Gifted and Marvel’s Runaways, to some old returning favorites like Jessica Jones, masked heroes are all over the small screen. And we’re not complaining. There’s nothing we love more than watching our favorite TV stars save the world again and again.

From Captain America to Batman v. Superman: Superheroes Are Taking Over

in Fiction by

Forget about Hillary vs. Bernie. Never mind Trump vs. Carson. The real action online is in a slew of geek-tastic movie trailers that are dropping faster than late-Autumn leaves. Last week saw the release of the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War, a movie that may as well be titled Avengers 3. As with most trailers, the cuts are quick, the action is lightning-fast, and you are compelled to watch it over and over and over again (Holy crap—it’s Black Panther! No! What happened to War Machine? And just what the heck is up with that crazy shield duet that Cap and Bucky are playing on Iron Man’s noggin?).     And then, just as our hearts were starting…

Ant-Man: Do You Know the Huge Origins of this Tiny Hero?

in Fiction by

OK everybody—let’s get small. If you recognize that as an obscure reference to a Steve Martin comedy album recorded nearly 40 years ago—POINTS! But that’s not what I’m talking about here. I’m talking about Friday’s release of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man, the comic-book behemoth’s latest offering and the 12th entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Does Ant-Man arrive with the goofiest concept of any comic-book movie we’ve ever seen? Possibly. An ex-con is recruited to fight bad guys by stealing a suit that gives its wearer the power to shrink down to insect size and communicate with ants. Yeah, that’s pretty weird. But it’s only the latest in a long, long line of literary and cinematic tales with teeny-tiny protagonists. In…

in Fiction by

Batman. Superman. Spiderman. There’s no denying that when we think of superheroes, our minds conjure up a vision of a man in a cape, swooping in to save his city. But what about the female heroes? From Batgirl to Wonder Woman, we know they’re out there – and it’s way past time for superheroines to get their fair share of the glory. Luckily, the rest of the world seems to agree. From television to books, it seems like superheroines have been popping up everywhere recently. Take Arrow, for example. The CW show about the classic DC Comics hero, Green Arrow, started as a crusade by one masked man. But since it first aired in 2012, the show has grown to…
