My Top Ten Favorite Marvel Female Characters: Updated

Marvel has a lot of characters and all of them have their own charm. To write these sort of ranking lists pertaining to the MCU is so much harder for me than something like Star Wars because I love so many of the characters but for now, I’ll give it a go. Enjoy!

WandaVision' Broke the MCU's Reality and It Was Very On-Brand

Agnes a.k.a Agatha Harkness was an instant favorite of mine when she waltzed into Wanda’s life in the first episode of WandaVision and as the series continued and the mystery only deepened she only became more and more fascinating.

By the end, when she revealed herself to be a witch by the name of Agatha Harkness I just really, really enjoyed the character. I’m so relieved that they decided not to kill her off because I want to see her again in the future.

Captain America: Secret War (TWENTY-NINE)

Colonel James Rhodes walked down the driveway of a stunning mansion in Miami, Florida, the sweltering heat of the bright sun bearing down on him. Palm trees swayed in the wind and beautiful flowers filling the air with a sweet scent lined the white pebbly pathway that led to the front door of the mansion.

Rhodes knocked on the creamy white door gilded with golden lions and crests and waited several seconds before he heard a voice behind the door. When the door opened Tony Stark was standing before him wearing a black robe and holding a fruity cocktail.

The Heroic Women of Marvel

Here’s a look back at the wonderful and diverse women who comprise the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Infinity Saga has come to an end with Avengers: EndgameEndgame truly was a culmination of the previous twenty-one movies before the Avengers finale, highlighting nearly every character that has placed a stamp on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the powerful women.

Today I will celebrate these extraordinary heroines by looking at their thrilling involvement in Endgame and where their stories are heading for the future. Enjoy!

The Ancient One

The Ancient One’s role in Endgame was slight but impactful as we got to see her protecting the New York Sanctum during the Battle of New York and schooling Bruce Banner in the seriousness of tampering with the past. It was delighting to see her again after her being gone for so many years and even though she is a permanently dead character her wisdom will always be felt in the MCU.

Throwback Friday: The Reasons Why ‘Iron Man 3’ Is and Isn’t a Pointless Installment in the MCU

Iron Man 3. Like Thor: The Dark World, it’s a forgotten and seemingly pointless installment in the MCU. Its villain, The Mandarin, is one of the more unforgettable antagonists in the franchise. And Tony’s storyline moving forward barely feels affected by the plot points that are presented in the film.

I don’t watch Iron Man 3 often but after seeing Endgame I wanted to go back and look at the Marvel films I’m less familiar with, one of those films, of course, being Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 isn’t exactly a terrible movie but compared to the other two Iron Man films it almost feels like a travesty. With a villain that’s almost more comical than intimidating in The Mandarin and a storyline that’s trying too hard to be grave plus evolve Tony’s character despite the fact that he’s pretty much the same person by the end of the film that he was at the beginning, Iron Man 3 isn’t anywhere near the enjoyable status of my favorite Marvel movies.

And yet, it’s not entirely a pointless film. In fact, it’s almost kind of fascinating to look back at for a couple of really intriguing storylines, one of course being Pepper’s ascension to being a superhero.

‘Iron Man’ Is Actually Pretty Good!

(This is a repost.)

I’ve seen Iron Man before but I obviously wasn’t paying much attention when I first watched it because after seeing it for only the second time on Friday night I was kind of blown away by how good the movie was.

At the time Marvel and superhero movies were a joke. The first couple of X-Men movies were received with praise by critics but beyond that Marvel films weren’t the go-to superhero flicks that you wanted to see. Hulk received a fresh but dismal 62% on Rotten Tomatoes. Both Fantastic Four movies in the mid-2000’s received rotten reviews with Fantastic Four receiving a 27% rating and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer garnering a 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Eesh. And remember that HORRIBLE Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner that came out in 2003 and ended up receiving a rotten 44% rating.

Yeah, Marvel’s tries at becoming a globally beloved cinematic universe didn’t begin until 2008’s Iron Man which would change the landscape of cinema forever. Continue reading ‘Iron Man’ Is Actually Pretty Good!
