Chris Fox

Chris grew up during the Disney renaissance of animation and took his first trip to Disney World when he was ten. Even though he has loved Disney his whole life, his obsession didn't start until he began planning a trip for his honeymoon. Right now, his primary job (at least the one that doesn't pay the bills) is to indoctrinate his daughter with his love of Disney while at the same time convincing his wife to move to Orlando so he can become a tour guide in the parks. He can also be found indulging in his nerdy side (both Disney related and otherwise) at nerdintherealworld.wordpress.com.

Disney Kingdoms Comics: Seekers of the Weird

seekers-weird-1

We’ve seen how Disney has been incorporating Marvel into their world, whether it’s in the theme parks and cruise ships or teaming up with Phineas and Ferb to save the world, but now it’s time to see how Marvel incorporates Disney into their world.

The Disney Kingdoms brand of comics launched this week with Seekers of the Kingdom #1. The first issue sets the stage as siblings, Max and Melody Keeps discover that there is more to their family than their parents have been letting on, including their adventurous Uncle Roland and a secret entrance to a strange place called the Museum of the Weird.

“Museum of the Weird” sound familiar? It’s the name of a walk through attraction that Walt wanted to build in connection with the haunted mansion and it was based on ideas by Rolly Crump.

This first issue, while full of action and weirdness, serves to set up the rest of the story, introducing us to the heroes and villains as well as something called a Coffin Clock, which the resident baddies wants to get their hands on.Read More »Disney Kingdoms Comics: Seekers of the Weird

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 12 preview – Seeds

agents-of-shield-ep12-lola

Previously on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC:

We were reunited with the team just a few days after Coulson’s capture as they were in pursuit of a guy named Vanchat, who they hoped could help find their leader. After returning to the bus with Vanchat, Agent Hand promptly kicked Skye off and Skye promptly followed her own leads to search for Coulson.

I really liked Skye’s story in this episode. She proved her intelligence and her use to the team. And I definitely got a good chuckle from her impersonation of May. She brought some much needed levity to an otherwise dark episode.

Meanwhile, the mystery surrounding Coulson’s death is unraveling. What I really wanted to know was whether or not this Coulson is the same one that we’d gotten to know in the movies. The episode didn’t answer all of the questions about his resurrection, but it did answer that one.

This isn’t a clone and this isn’t a Life Model Decoy. This is Agent Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. who underwent multiple procedures that were both very risky and very shady.

My next question is the same as Agent Hand’s — Why is Coulson worth all the trouble to bring him back to life? Does Fury just like him that much or is there something deeper?

The last revelation of the episode is that Mike has survived the explosion but our unknown antagonist has replaced one of his eyes with the eye camera/bomb that we’ve seen already.

That’s a lot to build on and I look forward to seeing what happens.

Now on to tonight’s show:Read More »Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 12 preview – Seeds
