With Crisis On Infinite Earths, CW is getting me to watch their slate of shows again. I have fallen behind, having found many of the episodes hackneyed and stretching out stories. Too many times, the overarching plot gets in the way of telling a good story in an hour's time. This is one of those cases where the story is big enough to demand that kind of storytelling.

I remembered the X-Files comic as covering the Brown Mountain Lights mystery very early in the run. I was wrong. The Brown Mountain Lights were a mystery close to where I grew up in North Carolina. I remembered being really impressed with the issue. Of course, I was a really big fan of The X-Files when this issue was published in 1996. Of course, I studied this issue very intently since I was familiar with the area. I'm going to get into the areas that worked and didn't later on. The appeal for me with this comic was that it was based in the area that I grew up. As a kid, I was infatuated with the paranormal, especially when it was in my figurative back yard. There was the devil's stomping grounds, a ghostly hitchhiker that vanished whenever she got home, and of course, there was the Brown Mountain Lights. I saw them once, but was a little less than impressed.
I struggled with writing this article on online piracy. I've written an article before my time here at Needless Essentials Online on the topic. However, in the past week, it's jumped to the forefront on Twitter.
I didn't expect to be doing another one of these so soon after covering The Last Avengers Story, but Spider-Man: Life Story started showing up on Marvel Unlimited and I really enjoyed the first couple of issues. I've had the crazy idea to have characters to age in real time. It's apparently not that crazy of an idea, because we've gotten a view of the Marvel Universe if characters aged in real time. It's all centered around Peter Parker.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently did an interview with Rolling Stone and said something that a lot of comic fans can take issue with. Regarding the future of the franchise, Kennedy said, "There’s no source material. We don’t have comic books. We don’t have 800-page novels." She added, "We don’t have anything other than passionate storytellers who get together and talk about what the next iteration might be." Well, here's four comics they could use.
With Marvel Studios releasing a little bit of footage for the upcoming What If? series on Disney+, I wanted to draw attention to the original series that started it all. Well, there were "imaginary stories" from DC Comics in the Silver Age, but this was the first time that Marvel crafted a series around the concept of alternate earths. We highlighted a cover gallery some time back, but this time I thought we'd go a little more in depth on why these stories matter. Essentially, these are mini-reviews of old comics. I'll acknowledge that, but feel like most of these individual issues may not get a proper review.
Before I talk about the Red Queen, I need to say one thing first. I'm not going to do this as a standard review of Marauders #2. It's not that it's a bad issue, because it's not. Everything in the issue pales beyond the reveal of the Red Queen on the last page. That being said, there are definitely going to be spoilers.
