Jack’s Comic Gems: Fantastic Four Season One

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This is video a fresh entry in my ongoing “Jack’s Comic Gems” collection. And this gem highlights a modern retelling of Marvel’s First Family. Back in the mid-2010s, Marvel launched a series of graphic novels that retold the classic origins of iconic characters in a more contemporary setting.

Naturally, the Fantastic Four were one of the first titles to come out and they set an incredibly high bar. Most already know the story of the Fantastic Four, but Season One re-told that story in a way that made it a true gem. Enjoy!

How Jason Aaron’s Heroes Reborn Won Me Over

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is both a review and a retrospect of Jason Aaron’s Heroes Reborn, a major crossover event from 2021, which is also the same name of a major mini-series from the late 90s. It was a strange event and one with a title that carried a lot of baggage. I know because I remember that mini-series and it was forgotten for a good reason.

As a result, I freely admit I was very skeptical about this series. But I still gave it a chance. Much to my surprise, it exceeded my expectations in so many unexpected ways. And since it’s release, I think it’s worth exploring and celebrating. Enjoy!

Making Power Rangers A (Successful) Cinematic Universe

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is my take on the possibility of a Power Rangers Cinematic Universe. After the 2017 movie failed to launch a franchise, Netflix is planning to try again. And give the lengthy history and lore of Power Rangers, I think there’s real potential. But making Power Rangers a successful cinematic universe for a new generation won’t be like Marvel or DC Comics. I believe there will be unique challenges to taking Power Rangers to this level, but I believe it can be done. Hopefully, we’ll see it come together in the near future.

Jack’s Fan Theories | Marvel Cinematic Universe | The Onslaught Theory

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is my first attempt at a fan theory. For this theory, I attempt to surmise a way for Marvel Studios to integrate mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We already know they’re coming. Kevin Feige has announced it. A variant of Charles Xavier showed up in Multiverse of Madness. And mutation was directly referenced in the finale of Ms. Marvel.

But even though we know mutants are set to enter the MCU, there remains a number of pressing questions.

Where have they been all this time?

Why did mutants never show up during major events like Infinity War?

This theory, which I call the Onslaught Theory, attempts to answer that with a hypothetical scenario that builds directly on recent events. Please note this is just my personal theory. It may or may not get debunked in the near future.

Gorr The God Butcher: How And Why He Became A Great Villain

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is a deep dive into Gorr the God Butcher. He is, in my opinion, one of the best villains Marvel has created in the past two decades. He challenged Thor and every god in the Marvel universe in a way no character has before. Now that he’s set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thor: Love and Thunder, I think the time is right to explore and celebrate this menacing butcher of gods. Enjoy!

Avengers vs. X-Men: A Clash Of Heroes (That Nobody Won)

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is a mini-documentary of Avengers vs. X-Men, one of Marvel’s most ambitious crossovers ever. It was set up to be the most epic hero-versus-hero clash of all time. But ultimately, it turned into a battle that nobody truly won the grand scheme of things. In this video, I attempt to explore the why, how, and what we can learn from this ambitious, but misguided event. Enjoy!

Revisiting Ms. Marvel #1: The Comic That Made Me A Kamala Khan Fan For Life

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. In anticipation of the Ms. Marvel TV series, I decided to revisit the comic that started it all for Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel #1. Of the many comics I’ve read over my life, few have impacted me quite like this one. It didn’t just make me a Kamala Khan fan for life. It redefined what I thought a great young superhero could be. It was one of those rare comics that I still go back to, time and again.

And with Iman Vellani poised to bring Kamala to life, I’d like to go over this memorable issue once more and highlight why it resonated with me so much. Enjoy!
