You’ve heard about the Captain Marvel movie coming out; heck, we’ve all heard about it, and with fresh news come fresh rumors. Debates about how the film will fit into the Marvel Universe Franchise, who the prospected (and possibly female) directors are, and even what exactly the movie will be about has got the Internet twittering, but my mind is focused on one critical thing: who is going to play the first ever live-action Carol Danvers?

As Long As I Don’t Wear Tights or Spandex, Issue 9 — SCUD, THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN

SCUD, THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN by Rob Schrab (Image / collected)

Among the big indie comics of the 90’s (like Jeff Smith’s Bone and Terry Moore’s Strangers in Paradise), there is a nice little footnote in writer/artist Rob Schrab’s Scud, The Disposable Assassin. Born of all things, by being dumped by a girl, this book around the latter half of the 90’s became a big indie success, spawned a video game, and was even optioned for a big Hollywood movie. But by the time the new decade rolled around, any new Scud issues had disappeared from comic shop shelves. Once again, heartbreak was behind this, but we’ll get there. Continue reading

Last we left everyone, we had a few surprises. One was Chloe and Oliver becoming way more than just friends, if you know what I mean. Another comes when Clark saved Zod from dying with some of his super blood. I’m sure Zod feels grateful for that, except now he’s using the Blur’s secret identity to get Lois to unwillingly spy on everyone. Oh, and he can fly. Barely a few hours with powers, and he can fly. That happened. So let’s see how that and that mysterious group Checkmate fit into things in this installment… Continue reading

We get opened to a lot of big reveals from last time.  There were other super heroes known as the Justice Society of America, who are now reforming thanks to Clark’s help.  John Jones has managed to get his Martian powers back, Lois is finally clear of those creepy memories of the future, and Tess is revealed to be an agent of the shadowy government group Checkmate, who wants to do more than just keep tabs on our heroes.  And also, Clark tries to prevent the dark future Lois saw by making nice with Zod and the Kandorians.  Let’s see how badly this goes…  Continue reading

So, we found out quite a bit about Zod and those Kandorians now on Earth, thanks to surprising return of Jor-El.  Well, they are all clones (Jor-El included) that Jor-El and Zod helped make in case Krypton met disaster.  Things didn’t go well for the two prior to that, and Zod harbors a serious hate for Jor-El.  However, clone Jor-El gets killed, before Zod can find out about some book he’s hidden on Earth.  And Clark, who is still navigating trying to start a relationship with Lois (who is having more potent flashes of the future), is debating the last words clone Jor-El passed on to him: “Save Zod”.  Ummm, wanna read on and see how that goes?    Continue reading

Last time, Clark’s attempt to be a full-time hero hit some big snags.  One is the arrival of Zod and his Kandorian army, not as powerful as Clark, and still under the kryptonian’s radar.  Another is the return of Lois from where or whenever she’s been, and the nightmarish visions she’s having.  And then there’s Oliver, who’s been in a bit of a downward spiral of late that seems to be getting worse.  Plus, now that Chloe is in charge of Watchtower, she’s been getting really secretive and kind of manipulative.  And Tess is trying to figure out what Zod is up to, along with watching Clark.  So, that’s everything, I think.  I mentioned the person appearing in a landing site marked with the House of El crest, right?  Oh.  Well let’s get to that, then… Continue reading

Last season, the whole Davis Bloome/Doomsday storyline ended with both man and monster separated, and yet, both of them meeting quick demises.  But Clark and company still faced a lot of grief over what happened, like Jimmy’s death, Clark and Oliver turning against each other in deciding Davis’s fate, and Clark deciding to ditch being Clark Kent to be a full-time superhero.  On the other end, Lois vanished into what we assume is the future, and Tess has heralded the arrival of Zod to Earth.  So where do we start up this season?

The whole Davis Bloome/Doomsday thing is starting to swing out of control, now that all our heroes (and villains) are aware what kind of threat he is. Not that Davis tries to take himself out of the equation, but that attempt just doesn’t work. Now Chloe is sheltering Davis in a crazy attempt to save both Davis and Clark from destroying one another. And meanwhile, Oliver is helping out Jimmy with a stable job besides pill-popping maniac, while dealing with his own guilt over killing Lex. Plus, Tess has some other odd kryptonian orb that I’m sure won’t be another world-ending calamity in the making. OK, who are we kidding? It pretty much will be. So, let’s jump in…
