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!

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!

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!

My Timed Run On Nodes 13 Through 15 In Dark Dimension V In Marvel Strike Force

What follows are a series of videos that I uploaded to my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This is all captured footage of me playing through Nodes 13, 14, and 15 of my timed run on Dark Dimension V, which are the legendary nodes.

These are the last three nodes of my timed run. Compared to the first run, this was a lot easier, thanks to me gearing up Shuri. She made a huge difference by providing more healing and defense. Thanks to her, I was able to one-shot each node except the last one. That didn’t make the victory at the end any less sweet and cathartic. Enjoy!

Here’s me going through Node 13 in one shot.

Here’s me going through Node 14 in one shot.

Here’s me going through Node 15, which took me two attempts. This is final node and completing it gave me the final bits of gear I needed to max Dormammu.

I hope these videos help other players prepare for Dark Dimension 5. And to my two alliances who supported me every step of the way, Legion of Doom and X-Academy (Venom), I sincerely thank you.

My Timed Run On Nodes 10 Through 12 In Dark Dimension V In Marvel Strike Force

What follows are a series of videos that I uploaded to my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. This is all captured footage of me playing through Nodes 10, 11, and 12 of my timed run on Dark Dimension V, which are the cosmic nodes.

And this is where my timed run actually felt genuine fun. That’s because this time, I had a gear 16 Dormammu to help me out instead of using Ravager Sitcher. It was a huge upgrade, to say the least. I wasn’t able to one-shot every node, but it was still a lot smoother. I can confirm that even Dormammu when he’s not fully leveled up is an amazing character in this game. Enjoy!

Here’s me going through Node 10.

Here’s me going through Node 11.

Here’s me going through Node 12. This is where Dormammu made the biggest difference.

My Timed Run On Nodes 7 Through 9 In Dark Dimension V In Marvel Strike Force

What follows are a series of videos that I uploaded to my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. These are captured footage of me playing through Nodes 7, 8, and 9 of my timed run on Dark Dimension V, which are the global nodes.

However, unlike previous nodes, I wasn’t able to do much to upgrade my characters this time around. As a result, I struggled more than I did the first time. In hindsight, I should’ve invested in upgrading Sharon Carter over Emma Frost. I still made it through, but it was a real slog from start to finish, especially on the last node. Please learn from my mistakes. Enjoy!

Here’s me going through Node 7.

Here’s me going through Node 8, which was the biggest challenge of this run to date.

Here’s me making my way through Node 9. That last wave sucked.

My Timed Run On Nodes 4 Through 6 In Dark Dimension V In Marvel Strike Force

What follows are a series of videos that I uploaded to my YouTube channel, Jack’s World. These are captured video of me playing through Nodes 4, 5, and 6 of my timed run on Dark Dimension V, which are the city nodes. Since my first run, I did manage to upgrade these characters somewhat and it did make a difference, albeit not as much as I’d like. I still hope those still planning for this stage gain some valuable insight. Enjoy!

Here’s me going through Node 4.

Here’s me going through Node 5.

Here’s me making my way through Node 6.

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.
