    She looks like
    Avengers era Black Widow, which is the one that Loki would be familiar with. so I'm going with a mental or spiritual projection of some kind.

    Scarjo really got the shaft with regards to Black Widow.

    Not only did she get a solo movie that is released after her death in the MCU, but the release of that movie was completely screwed up by Covid-19, and isn't seeing a lot of hype around the internet.

    Awesome! Any more links they can do to other media like that would be fantastic.

    Spider-Verse was a fucking phenomenal film.

    Have there been any other truly "comic book" movies like this one? Yeah, there are lots of superhero movies, but Spider-Verse is the only one that comes to mind that actually has a comic book feel.

    Ang Lee's Hulk was very visually comic book'y, but that was a gimmick that might not be to everyones liking.

    Yup, he was Noir spidey in that one. It was a pretty good fit, all things considered. Shattered Dimensions was a so-so game, but getting all the Spider-Man actors to that point to voice the different Spideys was a fun touch and it looks like they might be leaning that direction for Spider-verse 2, which I welcome.

    In Aquaman the villain's mask actually moves with the actor's face so they can properly emote.

    Which is not only a very comic book thing but also something the entire genre should be adopting.

    I've been mostly avoiding King in Black, it seems like there's a lot of prior Venom reading that should be done first and I just don't care that much about Venom to begin with.

    The SWORD and Guardians of the Galaxy tie-ins are good, but that's because Ewing is very good.

    Same. Though I kind of like Knull's whole thing and his ties to the Thor stuff.

    I also kind of suspect Knull may be in the crosshairs of the MCU people as a future big bad guy so I was kind of curious if they were starting to lay any of that ground work in the comics.

    Bluntly:

    No.

    It's overwrought as hell, ends in a very, very daft fashion that comes across as more what a kid author thinks is cool rather than what makes a good story. Spoiler for that below:
    Eddie Brock gets captain Universe's powers! Summons Mjolnir and the silver surfer's board, and then combos them together into a big axe to kill knull with, and the ends up as the King in Black himself. I wish i was kidding.

    It's just silly, and i dont think adds anything to the marvel universe.

    Spend yer money on Immortal Hulk or similar (or, you know, dont give marvel money if you can avoid it!)

    (Seriously, basically everything Enwig is doing currently is gold, most of the X books are really strong, there's a lot of good options)

    Yeah, I haven't read any Marvel in a number of years that wasn't Hulk or an X-Men book. Most of the comic line has been dead to me as someone who used to be a large fan. Been a lot of manga and creator owned comics for me.

    The two things that kicked me off the brand were the character assassination that I thought couldn't be topped that was Civil War 2 that basically permanently destroyed the characters of Captain Marvel and Miss Marvel for me. Then Secret Empire said hold my goddamn beer and gave us fucking goddamn Nazi Cap and I was fucking done. Is Nazi Cap still around by the way? He still was at the end of the story even when they brought a version of normal Cap back. I still can't fucking defend that storyline at all.

    Nazi Cap was put in prison, then got up to some shenanigans, then got melted by Selene early on in Coates' Captain America run.
