Roundabout 4: The Reckoning

To what do we owe our fascination with superheroes? Is it the action? It helps, but there’s plenty of violence and explosions in media to satisfy our appetite for excitement. Is it the quips and witty repartee? There’s no shortage of comedians in print, on television, or on the silver screen either. Is it the…

Electro, Electricians, and Elections: Roundabout 3

For a site called The Caped Persuader there’s not an awful lot of persuading going on here. Sure there are plenty of opinions tossed around here, and some of them even have pretty good reasoning behind them, but neither I nor Cape Persuader J have done much to actively persuade anyone of anything. For my…

Fanboys of the World Unite: Roundabout Part 2

The more I learn the more I realize I don’t know. I’m sure someone far wiser and more articulate that me has a more eloquent way of saying that, but I spend way too much time researching verification of my statements as it is to waste any more time trying to sound more cultured than…

Civil War: Roundabout Part 1

Following up J’s multifaceted treatise on the titular Marvel Comics crossover event is no easy task. For one thing, he did such a good job with it, there’s always the danger of falling short of the bar set. Second, he covered so much ground its daunting to try to find something worth saying about it…

Universe In Review: Captain America-Civil War: J

Captain America: Civil War Fun things first, then the comparisons that bring the heat. The case could be made that Black Panther is the Wakandan Captain America. Both men represent the sensibilities, ideologies, and style of their home land. Cap is a Star Spangled, front lined, toe-to-toe punch swapper with big smiles. He breaks rules…

Civil War: Finale or Standing with a Microwave – J

And now we come to it. After so long, my side is revealed. I’m with Firestar. To be honest, it took some serious soul searching for me to come up with which side I would be on. I feel like the romantics side with Captain America and the utilitarians side with Iron Man. While I…

Civil War: To Throw a Punch or the Towel – J

Next up in the series is a closer look at a much less known hero, Firestar, then compare her to an even more esoteric Marvel character, Captain America! Some reverse imagery of Starfire from DC, no? Despite the picture, his power is not telekinetic jet-posing for epic pictures.              …

Civil War: The Wisdom to Know the Difference – J

So, the Serenity prayer may not have been written for Alcoholics Anonymous, but people sure connect the two. Kinda like Aretha Franklin and “R.E.S.P.E.C.T”, which is originally written by Otis Redding, if you wanna pocket that piece of trivia. This is the final post having to do with a character directly from the comic event…

Civil War: WWSSD? -J

Addendum to the retweet, the most interesting thing about the new trailer isn’t the visuals, it’s BC’s American accent. I’m not sure it’s actually him without that Holmes voice… Continuing the trend of focusing on characters I am fairly confident will not actually be showing up in the movie, we’re going to take a look…

Civil War: Richards Math Questions: J

Part 2! Hopefully all of you have finished your PreReqs for the class and stand ready for the first real meat of the subject. Here, we’ll take a look into the motivations of a man who has never had an itch he couldn’t reach, an Illuminati charter member, Fantastic Four leader, super genius, champion of…
