Comics Wrap-Up - From the Fading Light I Fly

I don't know whether there's just a lot of superhero/comics stuff this week, or if I've just rambled on more than usual... maybe both! 😎

Film Trailers

X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer. Here we go...

(Warning: flashing images)

If you know anything about X-men, you know that this storyline is the BIG one.

(You may also know that we don't talk about Last Stand. Please and thank you! Lol.)

A lot of X-men fans fall into one of two camps: those who love Jean Grey, and those who... would rather she played a less prominent part.

I openly admit that I'm in the second camp here. I've never understood the appeal of Jean Grey, other than as a recurring comics resurrection principle 😏

Ok, that was nerdy, even for me 😅. I'll leave some notes for those who don't speak fluent nerd (and, y'know, care.)

(Fangirling notes: the Jean Grey principle = no matter how many times a character dies, they always come back, especially if your name's Jean Grey.

Conversely, the Uncle Ben principle is that Spider-Man's Uncle Ben is never resurrected.

Summed up together - no-one stays dead except Uncle Ben)

Also, I'm not a fan of Mystique's new make-up job... it might grow on me, who knows? *shrugs*

Other Stuff

Check out this AMAZING look at the character of Klaus in Umbrella Academy, and the way his addictions are portrayed in the programme.

It's from a channel called The Rewired Soul on YouTube, and it's awesome.

Run time: 10.54

Warning: this video discusses addiction, recovery, and trauma, it also contains SPOILERS

And to finish this week, we have Goose, Captain Marvel's cat, getting ready for the red carpet.

You're welcome. 😻

  1. Literally everyone I know it talking about Umbrella Academy! Is it any good? I usually follow hype but in this case I don’t even know what this show is about!

    1. The Umbrella Academy is a team of superheroes who are also a family, they disbanded years ago but are brought back together by the death of their father. It's dysfunctional af, and weird as all hell, but it's SO GOOD!!!! XD

      I admit to being biased b/c I'm a massive Gerard Way fan, and have loved The Umbrella Academy comics for years, but I also LOVE what they've done with it! :) <3

  2. Oh the trailer for Dark Phoenix looks fantastic! I can't wait to watch that in June :)
    I am going to see the Captain Marvel movie in 2 hours. I heard it's good. Shazam looks a bit lame to me but my son wants to see it.

    1. I'm hopefully going to see Captain Marvel tomorrow - hope you enjoy watching the various films! Lol :)
