@byondeon: I’m actually up to date on the Thor stuff but will be sure to check out Infinity Wars and Thanos Wins, thanks!

@thor_parker82: Yep, around post Secret Wars onward would be good. Dropped off a bit after that.

Read God of Thunder and it was awesome!

Hi guys, I’ve been in and out of comics for the past few years and am looking to catch up on good stories that I may have missed while away. Please recommend any Marvel storylines or arcs that have been generally praised or that you think is required reading to get caught up. Thank you in advance!

Around my circle and the circle of critics/reviewers I follow, I would say that it has been fairly rated. I don't think it is being overblown since I do not hear people saying that it one of the best movies ever but that it is in the upper echelon of MCU movies which I agree with.

I think a large majority of the hype behind it has to do with other aspects and maybe not for the film as a whole such as the production design, score and especially all the amazing supporting characters the film established. In this sense I think it very much lives up to the hype.

This is why fan-voting should never be taken with even a grain of salt

Hello, everyone! Been off Marvel comics for a bit and wanted to jump back in to good ongoing or recently concluded storylines. Through recommendations I just finished Loki: Sorcerer Supreme on the Doctor Strange book and am currently going through The Mighty Thor run. Which other stories would you all suggest? Thanks!

Hello everyone! Was just curious with the news of a Venom movie coming from Sony, is classic Venom more of an Anti-Hero or a straight up Villain? I ask because various movie blogs and websites have been saying that Venom has always been more of an Anti-Hero, but my perception of the character while growing up was that he was a Villain.

Of course I'm talking about Venom before he became Agent Venom onwards. Thanks!

@the_scourge: There are not any superhero or major character in Marvel & DC of Filipino descent right?

None that I know of. Personally don't mind that there aren't any though

Personally didn't think it was a good movie but loved most of the new characters (especially Cyclops) and thought Fassbender and McAvoy were brilliant as always

McAvoy was marginalized, though.

That's the fault of the writing and not the actor

Except the actor's opportunity to shine is dependant on the script. McAvoy did an excellent job portraying a version of the character that was coming into form as the Xavier in the OT (I loved the scenes of him early on in the film), but they shafted him in the second half of the film. If Xavier was in it more, I could've rated the movie an A.

Wait, what? That's exactly what I said. It isn't McAvoy's fault he didn't have much to do because of they way they wrote him but he performed all his scenes brilliantly as expected.
