Marvel: Champion of Change

By: Terra Clarke Olsen I’ve been a frustrated lady geek the past few weeks.

But yesterday brought […]

The Winter Soldier

By: Meg Humphrey I am a huge Captain America fangirl. Justice, righteousness, and unwavering moral compasses are some of my absolutely favorite things. Now, I admit that it was The First Avenger that brought me into the fandom (and don’t anyone dare say that I’m not a “real fan” because of it), but since then […]

ECCC: Roundup

But I did get to enjoy the festivities of Thursday night in addition to Friday’s attendance, so it wasn’t a complete loss. Thursday night was packed with pre-con events. So many invites, so little time! I started the […]

The Face Behind the Mask

The Face Behind the Mask: Marvel’s Miles Morales By: Terra Clarke Olsen  When you think of a superhero, who do you think of? I’m guess that one of these characters (if not all) came to your mind: Batman, Superman, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, and Wolverine.
