This year, I again attended Wizard World’s Saint Louis Comic Con. This was their second year doing this, and it was a huge improvement from the year before. There were more celebrities, bigger panel rooms, bigger show room floor, more artists, and more comics. Of course, even though all of this was amazing, it seems what really made my weekend was one specific celebrity by the name of Manu Bennett.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier follows none other than Captain America(Chris Evans) as he finds out who he really needs to trust. Is S.H.I.E.L.D. who they say they are? Are they really protecting people, or putting them in fear? Can Nick Fury(Samuel L. Jackson) be trusted? Can anyone be trusted? Who and what is the Winter Soldier? These are just a few of the questions raised during this political thrillers runtime, and boy is it one heck of a ride.
Anyone who knows anything about me can tell you that I love comic books. Anyone who can tell you a bit more about me can tell you that Spider-Man(yes, there’s a hyphen) is one of my favorite Marvel characters. I own every single issue of the Ultimate Spider-Man series, and keep up with the current Spider-Man stories. The character of Peter Parker is such a great one, being relatable to so many different people across the world.
The worst part about finishing Bioshock Infinite’s latest DLC, Burial At Sea Episode 2, is knowing that it’s the last time we’ll get to play in the Bioshock world. Well, at least one made by Irrational. As we learned recently, they are closing the studio and Ken Levine is moving to a different IP. This being their swan song, it leads to hope that it holds up to the series precedent set by the first Bioshock and Infinite with writing and gameplay.
