Review: X-Men ‘92

X-Men 92 #1Writers: Chris Sims & Chad Bowers
Artist: Scott Koblish
Cover: Pepe Larraz

Today’s modern Comic Book-based property has reached a level of mass popular appeal that most long-time comic readers never imagined would be attained. Video games, TV series, and, yes, blockbuster movies have pushed comic book characters and stories past the confinement of those paneled pages and directly into the social subconscious. Now, pretty much everyone knows who Wolverine, Scott Summers, and Jean Grey are without having to ever pick up a single comic book issue, and those same people are coming to us long-time readers to garner new information and learn about different perspectives on characters we’ve known for years. I know I experience this all the time, and while it’s kind of strange to discuss comic books with somewhat knowledgeable people who have never actually read a comic book, the newfound popularity of the medium is exciting for everyone. This is not, however, a new experience for me. Continue reading Review: X-Men ‘92

Top o’ the Lot: Vehicles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

From time to time Outright Geekery brings you a slanted and biased opinion on some trivially specific topic of geekery. We call it Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot.

Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is easily one of the best action movie series of all time. It has everything: Amazing characters, awesome fights, and really, REALLY, cool technology. Among this technology are ray-guns, super suits, even flying hammers, but nothing in the MCU is quite as cool as the plethora of vehicles. Cars, boats, spaceships and more, the list of amazing automobilia goes on and on, but I whittled it down to just the very best of the best. So, without further ado, it flies, you’re not supposed Marvel Studios Logoto do that with bikes, and who was driving that thing? in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: Vehicles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
