We're back with a normal Super Tuesday Recap this week. We're reviewing the first three episodes of Marvel's The Defenders on Netflix. We're switching up our reviews for Netflix shows this time and we're breaking out our reviews of series into multiple episodes. This first review will cover the first three episodes (The H Word, Mean Right Hook & Worst Behavior). 

Overall we enjoyed the first three episodes, particularly how they bring the heroes together and carry on from where each hero left off in their solo adventures. Charlie Cox and Krysten Ritter are clearly the heavy hitters here in terms of acting and carrying their scenes. But we do think that Fin Jones is much improved in this series and pairing him with Michael Colter's Cage is when both characters shine the most. We also talk about the messiness of the relationships on the show, a possible better order for the solo movies to fit into Defenders better and what feels off about Simone Missick's Misty Knight.

We took a little break but we’re finally back with another Character Corner. We still have to finish up our Peter Parker series but we wanted to take a bit of a detour from Marvel and head over to DC and cover one of the most confusing comic book character histories ever: Hawkman.

Now you may be asking yourself “Why Hawkman? Why now?” And that’s a very valid question. Why would we tackle one of the most confusing comic book characters of all time at this point? The answer is simple: Scott Snyder’s Dark Knights: Metal. Snyder wrote an incredible 52 issues of Batman during New 52 and he’s now back with a series that not only answers questions about Batman but also Hawkman, Nth Metal and the rest of the DC Multiverse. While it’s a daunting task to take on Hawkman’s history (one that rarely works out), Snyder definitely has our attention with the first issue of Metal, as well as the preludes Dark Days: The Forge and The Casting.

Key Issues:

  • Flash Comics #1 - First Appearances of Carter Hall and Shiera Sanders
  • Brave and the Bold #34 - First Appearances of Katar Hol and Shayera Thal/Hol
  • Crisis on Infinite Earths
  • The Shadow War of Hawkman
  • Hawkworld - Tim Truman's mini-series
  • Hawkworld - John Ostrander's ongoing series
  • Zero Hour: Crisis in Time - Merges Carter, Katar and Shiera
  • JSA Secret Files #1 - First appearance of Kendra Saunders
  • JSA
    • The Return of Hawkman (Issues #16 - 25)- Carter Hall returns
    • Black Reign
  • Hawkman Volume 4
    • Issues 1 - 25 Geoff Johns Run 
    • Issues #43- 45 - Charlie Parker reveals that Fel Andar was his father
    • Issues #47 - 49 - Rann/Thanagar War
    • Issue #50 becomes Hawkgirl
  • Hawkgirl
    • Issue #60 - Kendra/Shiera defeat Hath Set, ending the curse
