Avengers: Secret Wars | Why The Marvel Cinematic Universe Needs A (Soft) Reboot

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. In this video, I discuss the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the potential impact of Avengers: Secret Wars.

After so many years of sustained success, the MCU is at a crossroads. It’s getting to a point where it’s increasingly difficult to continue the current continuity, given how many actors and actresses have moved on from their roles.

But I believe Avengers: Secret Wars will present a unique opportunity to continue building the MCU for years to come and it involves a soft reboot. Please note this is not a rumor or speculation. This is just me making the case that a soft reboot of the MCU might be the best recourse for the future of this ever-evolving cinematic universe. Enjoy!

A Tale Of Two Ultrons: MCU vs. EMH

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video essay is a deep dive into two memorable of versions of Ultron, one of Marvel’s most menacing and daunting villains. He’s had many versions over the years, but the two most contemporary versions come from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. And I analyze both version, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. I also make the case for what I feel is the best version of Ultron. Enjoy!

How Cindy Moon Won Me Over And Why Her Story Matters

This video is a brief exploration of Cindy “Silk” Moon, the second person that infamous spider bit after Peter Parker. She’s a fairly new character to the world of Spider-Man and Marvel Comics. Her journey since debuting in 2014 has been a erratic. But she won me over as her story unfolded and I think her story matters now more than it did when she debuted. Enjoy!

X-Men Evolution: X-23 | How An Uncanny Star Was Born

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is my personal exploration and celebration of Laura “X-23” Kinney, a character who became an icon in the X-Men comics, and later the Logan movie. But it was one fateful episode of X-Men: Evolution that began her journey. And to this date, this episode a testament to what makes this character so special.

She-Hulk Review: Fourth Wall Breaking Fun

The following is a video from my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This video is my full review of She-Hulk. Now that the first season is over, I feel comfortable offering my full assessment. This was a very different kind of show from Marvel Studios, but one that delivered in its own unique way. It took a very different approach compared to other shows, but one that is perfectly in keeping with the core of this sensational character. Enjoy!

My Trip To New York Comic Con 2022

As I promised, I’ve compiled some of the videos and images of my trip to the New York Comic Con into a video for my YouTube Channel, Jack’s World. Please note that this is only a fraction of the footage I took. There was just so much to see and so many people to meet. There was just no way I could fit it into one video, but I did my best to make sure it captured the experience. Enjoy!

Post-New York Comic Con Afterglow Setting In

Yesterday was a damn good day. Defintely a true return to form for the New York Comic Con. After two years of dealing with COVID-19, this felt like a truly complete Comic Con experience. For that, I cannot thank the fine folks who make the New York Comic Con experience possible every year. And I cannot thank enough the wonderful people who attend these conventions to make them so special.

From the comic book creators to the cosplayers to the celebrities to the food vendors to the security guards, I thank you.

This was truly special. As I’m typing this, I am nothing short of exhausted. Between navigating the Jacob Javits Center to traveling to New York City to finding appropriate lodging that won’t render me broke, it’s always quite challenging. But it’s still so worth it.

This year, I had a chance to meet a few of my favorite comic book writers. I managed to get some autographs, as well as a few special variant comics that I fully plan to frame. I met some amazing cosplayers who had some truly remarkable costumes. I also met a major celebrity. I won’t say who it is, but you’ve probably seen him in a several major blockbuster movies.

I’m going to take some time to rest and relax from it all. Then, at some point, I’m going to take the footage I captured and put it in a YouTube video for my channel, Jack’s World. I’m looking forward to sharing it. I’m also already looking forward to attending New York Comic Con next year, as well.

Heading To New York Comic Con 2022!

It’s finally here!

I’ve been waiting all year for it and with more anticipation than usual!

The New York Comic Con is finally here!

As I’m writing this, I struggle contain my excitement. It’s a familiar feeling I experience every year I’ve gone, but I’m still not tired of it. This year promises to be extra special.

After two years of being bogged down by the COVID-19 pandemic, New York Comic Con is set to return at full strength. That means no reduced capacity and no limited vendors. That means I’ll have to plan extra carefully in order to attend all the panels and get all the autographs I hope to get. But I’m willing to make that effort.

I even have a new costume this year that I can’t wait to show off. It cost me extra to get it customized, but I already feel it’s worth every penny.

So I hope New York is ready for me! Because I’m so ready for this.

New York Comic Con 2022, here I come!

HUGH JACKMAN IS PLAYING WOLVERINE IN “DEADPOOL 3” ON 9/14/24!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL!

THIS IS NOT A HOAX!

YES, I KNOW I’M TYPING IN ALL CAPS! THAT’S BECAUSE I’M SHOUTING AND TREMBLING WITH JOY!

HUGH JACKMAN IS COMING BACK TO PLAY WOLVERINE AGAIN IN DEADPOOL 3!

Okay, I’ve taken a moment to catch my breath.

I know I don’t normally just post short bits like this. I’m kind of working off raw adrenaline at the moment. I just wanted to share this news and the unfiltered joy it gave me.

Like many, I was very disappointed at the lack of X-Men news at D23 and San Diego Comic Con this past year. I worried we weren’t going to get much else aside from X-Men 97.

Then, Ryan Reynolds decides to drop this little bombshell on us. And I can’t thank him enough for that.

Suddenly, it looks like 2024 is going to be one of the most epic years in the history of cinema and I am so ready for it!

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!
