With all the political tensions and hoopla surrounding the MCU’s Captain Marvel, we must ask… it this movie really all that? Or is it just as political as some of the actors? Or Is It Marvelous?
Within the first arc of the “Young Animal” version, we are introduced to Casey Brinke and dismembered variation of the Doom Patrol. Throughout the duration of its’ first six issues, the title manages to not only reunite the core team and build on some new members.

Back in 2014, a woman named Christine Weick was filmed attempting to convince people that Monster Energy Drinks had ties to the occult and particularly Satanism itself. She laid a variety of "proofs" in the video the caused some to question things. At the time of its release, I was in charge of running the coffee shop at my church where we had Monster energy drinks. In response, I did my due diligence to research into the claims. Below is a repost (edited slightly) of my findings that I posted on a personal website many years ago.
2019 marks a spectacular return for Dragonball fans. With the series renaissance starting back in 2008, none of us knew what to expect going forward.

Being a child of the late ’80s and ’90s; I’m very well acquainted with the Carmen Sandiego franchise. I grew up playing many different variations of the computer game, watching the game shows, and of course the 90’s cartoon. I wanted the jacket from the game show and wished that the internet worked the way that the 90’s cartoon made it seem. It’s no hyperbole to say that this franchise was a big help in my understanding of geography in my elementary days. So when I heard that Netflix was doing a brand new series, I was very interested. But is it worth watching? Does it live up to my expectations?
I have to be honest. I didn't think I would be writing this article. When I saw the trailer of Titans where Robin gave his now infamous line expressing what he thought of Batman, I assumed this was the same song, different verse. DC was once again trying to take iconic, hope-inspiring superheroes and make them dark and gritty. Yes, Batman is gritty, and yes, people like that about him. But it seems DC is beginning to think that is the only way to have a good superhero story--make it more like Batman. Not that I agree with or appreciate Robin's choice of words, but I was beginning to feel the sentiment he expressed.
