Short Treks Season 3.1

The second season of Star Trek was the apex of its creativity.  At first the stellar storytelling and character moments didn’t appear to be enough and the show was due for cancellation. A massive outpouring of effort from the fan base and production team, forced to do everything the hard way in the pre internet days, proved to the network that this was a valued series worthy of saving.

The Trekkies were rewarded for their hard work and ingenuity with …

“Spock’s Brain”
Air Date September 20, 1968
Mom Title: “You are not Morg, you are not Eyemorg”

Avengers 2- The New Order Changeth


If any list of Avengers' villains doesn’t have him in one of the top three spots (arguably the top two) it’s wrong, period.  For me, his combination of nigh unstoppable power, species dominating goals and familial ties to the team puts him at number one. 
He was one of the first major foes of Englehart’s West Coast Avengers when I started collecting comics, and his Unlimited arc in Buseik’s and Perez’s run brought me back to Marvel after a long absence.

This fandom gave me higher expectations and more demanding requirements than my usual insane levels for the latest excursion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
