MINOR SPOILERS

The 21st movie in the ongoing saga that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel stands as the first film from Marvel Studios with a female lead. Naturally, that means it’s going to be under a lot of scrutiny, more than any other Marvel film before it. Can one movie introduce Carol Danvers to audiences, connect to the larger MCU as a whole as a prequel, tease people for Avengers:Endgame, and overcome the internet trolls review bombing the film before they’ve even seen it?

Now that he’s settled into DC Comics, it’s time for Brian Michael Bendis to really shake things up, and for starters, he’s bringing back Young Justice. The title that brought Robin, Superboy, and Impulse together was a big hit back in the day, but the DC universe is very different from the one that birthed that series. But just because it’s different, that doesn’t mean that Bendis and artist Patrick Gleason aren’t going to do their best to bring a new team together that includes the return of Connor Kent, Superboy.

 General Zod’s plans come to fruition in the latest issue of Superman/Wonder Woman, a comic book that’s way better than it should be. Written by Charles Soule and drawn by Tony S. Daniel, Superman/Wonder Woman continues the ongoing story that introduces Zod and Faora into the New 52, and while it’s not entirely the best introduction to the series, it’s still a hell of a lot of fun.

Picking up from last issue’s knock down drag out fight, Wonder Woman and Superman travel to MT. Olympus in hopes of getting some new firepower from Hephaestus, Wonder Woman’s brother. (SPOILER: Wonder Woman is Zeus’ daughter now).  After receiving some pretty bitchin’ power armor, the two track down Zod and Faora, hoping to stop them from creating a portal into the Phantom Zone, which would release the monstrous Doomsday.
