Struggles of a Gamer Couple

Struggles of a Gamer Couple

The first conversation I ever had with Shane was about superheroes.

We had just met online, and of course were looking to find things in common. He told me his favourite was Batman, and I told him my favourite was Iron Man.

He brought me Batman Lego on the first date, we started playing video games together on the third date, and we’ve been together ever since. Continue reading “Struggles of a Gamer Couple”

On Marvel’s Touching Tribute to Spider-Man’s Artist

The Many Marvelous Faces of Stan Lee

The Many Marvelous Faces of Stan Lee

Let’s be honest here—as much as we all love Marvel movies, half the fun is looking for the Stan Lee cameo we all know will be there.

As the creator of several of our favourite heroes, including Spiderman, Iron Man, Thor, and Black Panther, it’s certainly a nice touch to see his face in the films, uniting the stories across time, space, and alternate universes. Continue reading “The Many Marvelous Faces of Stan Lee”
