Say His Name: The Crazy Comic Book History of ‘Shazam!’

DC’s Shazam! hits theatres this week, making it the second Captain Marvel movie in under a month. The other one by Marvel Studios was about Carol Danvers, who has her own convoluted history . Most comic fans today associate Carol with “Captain Marvel” moniker, which she’s held since 2012, but it wasn’t always this way. In fact, decades before Marvel had any Captain Marvel at all, Fawcett Comics created a fun, friendly superhero who, in his early years, outsold even the likes of Superman...

Behold, the '70s sci-fi book series that popularized the Illuminati conspiracy

The historical Illuminati was a failed 18th century Bavarian secret society. Current Illuminati conspiracies stem from a satirical '70s counterculture book.Authors Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson's intent was to sow chaotic disinformation just for the satire.The Illuminati has become a stand-in myth for every conspiratorial crackpots' idea of some omnipresent cabal pulling the strings on world affairs. Depending on who you ask, sometimes they're responsible for some two-bit celebrity's ris...

POLL: Should Tim Burton and Michael Keaton Make a Third Batman?

BEGIN SLIDESHOW POLL: Should Tim Burton and Michael Keaton Make a Third Batman? Director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton redefined the nature of superhero films with his dark, gothic take on The Caped Crusader with 1989’s Batman. In 1992 they re-teamed for the more idiosyncratic sequel Batman Returns, but never got to round out the trilogy as both passed on 1995’s Batman Forever. Now that the original Batman is turning 30 this year, should Tim Burton and Michael Keaton reunite for one ...

The Unpopular Opinion: 10 Years Later, Zack Snyder’s ‘Watchmen’ is the Best-Case-Scenario for Anyone Adapting the Comic

(Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation is a best case scenario situation.) I will be the first to admit that Zack Snyder’s interpretation of Watchmen isn’t perfect. In fact, in some respects it’s a very strangely paced and plotted film, very long with meandering diversions into the psyches of its large and often disconn...

Metro Exodus, Devil Engine and Apex Legends: three games that demonstrate the value of genres

From a ‘battle royale’ showdown to a shoot ’em up revival, three mixed new titles demonstrate the value to games of genresGenres, as the graphic novelist Alan Moore once wrote, are pretty much only useful for directing the WH Smith’s clerk in which section to place the books. The best work is woven from threads of comedy, tragedy, romance, horror and all the rest. It defies, in other words, tedious categorisation. In video games, however, the strictures of genre cannot be so easily dismissed. Ga...
