Updated! Ranking The MCU Films (2019)

Avengers Ant

Now that “Avengers: Endgame” is breaking records left and right and dominating watercooler conversations, it felt like the right time to update my personal ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films (or MCU for short). There are three new additions to the list since I last updated and there’s a bit of shuffling in terms of order of other titles. Anyway, enough of my yammering. On with the list! Continue reading

With “Avengers: Infinity War” now out in theaters, it felt like the proper time to update and reassess my personal ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films (or MCU for short). Compared to my last list, there’s quite a bit of change here as some films have gone up or down while newer entries debuted high on the list. Anyway, enough of my yammering. On with the list!

Runaways Is Now Available From Marvel Press


“Runaways” (which started out as a brilliant comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona) is becoming quite the multi-platform franchise these days. The recent Hulu TV series just wrapped its first season and now a brand new novel from Marvel Press has hit the shelves. The story of the book (which is written by Christopher Golden) is actually set AFTER the events of the comic book story arc (confusing I know). One would think there would be a novel that would logically tie-in with the TV series, but alas, that’s not the case. So, if you aren’t familiar with the comics and don’t want spoilers of what could happen in the show, skip this novel. At any rate, the book finds Nico, Molly, Gert, Chase, Karolina, and Old Lace the dinosaur in L.A. where they encounter a kid (Zeke) needing help and, yes, another batch of super villain adults known as the Nightwatch. The plot is a bit of a retread to be sure, but, if you like spending time with these characters, Golden captures their voices and character dynamics well.

As an added bonus, this novel includes part of the first issue of the “Runaways” reboot comic written by Rainbow Rowell which focuses on the characters at an older age. Truth be told, I just wanted to read more of this!

Black Panther: The Young Prince Hardcover Book Is Now Available


With the hotly anticipated Marvel film’s release date fast approaching, Marvel Press/Disney Book Group has wisely released a new YA novel titled “Black Panther: The Young Prince.” Written by Ronald L. Smith (who is perhaps best known for “Hoodoo” and “The Mesmerist”), this original novel focuses on T’Challa as a young child Prince as he embraces his destiny to become the hero of Wakanda- Black Panther. The story primarily involves his friendship with M’Baku, their travels to Chicago for schooling, a villainous student (and perhaps something even more sinister) , T’Challa adapting to a new life in America, T’Challa getting used to his new vibranium suit, and trouble brewing in Wakanda. Of course, a few familiar faces pop up here as well (won’t say who).

The prospect of reading a youth oriented novel about a kid T’Challa may not appeal to every Black Panther or Marvel fan, and indeed, the novel doesn’t quite have the crossover appeal to adults that some “Star Wars” novels have. If you’re looking for more adult skewed “Black Panther” material, I’d recommend checking out the graphic novel “Black Panther: Who Is The Black Panther?” However, as previously noted, the novel is intended for a younger audience and to that demographic this book might be appealing as it is filled with action/adventure and a story with strong themes of friendship, growth, destiny, and heroism.
