THE FLASH: The Power of Music

The Flash’s 17th episode (“Duet”) was everything my theater nerd heart could’ve hoped for. It proves Barry’s (at the time maudlin) quip, “Everything’s better in song.” Because it’s true. There is something inarguably magical about music. How it can conjure an old feeling on capture one you never could put into words before. And man, […]

Li’l League

Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest. As we’ve discussed in these pages previously, the hottest thing going at DC Comics in the early 1960s was JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA. So hot, in fact, that a request to ape its success led to the creation of THE FANTASTIC FOUR by Lee and Kirby, which would […]

Breaking Up Is Hard to Do on SUPERGIRL

Supergirl’s 16th episode (“Star-Crossed”) centers around love, forgiveness, and expectation. It was solid, with an array of feels (not to be confused with cloudy with a chance of meatballs). I ended up feeling bad for Mon-El. Because as his relationship with Kara devolves, it is all too easy to understand why he didn’t tell her […]

Old Friends and New Exits on THE FLASH

The Flash’s 16th episode (“Into the Speed Force”) gave us so much HR wisdom, and I love it. He may not be a super genius and his idioms are always delightfully sideways (“Hold your roll.” cracked me up), but he is helpful—and he has a timely knack for figuring things out. Plus, he’s kind of […]

Sometimes, the New Order Stinketh

As has been discussed many times in these pages, a large part of the strength of THE AVENGERS as a concept is its ever-rotating roster of teammates. However, that doesn’t mean that every now and then, a real lemon doesn’t somehow find his or her way on to the team. Let’s tale a look at […]
