Top 10 Tuesday: 'Arrow,' 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' AND Beyond: Marvel on Netflix


With the 2014 fall television season creeping upon us like the dumb Galactacus cloud, it's looking to be a pretty sweet year for series based on comic book heroes. From returning favorites like Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to promising new shows like The FlashAgent Carter and Gotham, TV seems to be jumping headfirst into many different corners of graphic multiverse. So today, we're throwing up a list of heroes (and others) who deserve their piece of this new frontier. This week I've decided to box myself into the fledgling Defenders corner of the MCU that begins with Daredevil next May. Here's 'Arrow,' 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' and Beyond - Part 2 of 3: Marvel on Netflix!

Top 10 Tuesdays: 10 Possible Ramifications of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy"


Marvel Studios' biggest gamble yet has paid off big time as the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), "Guardians of the Galaxy", is now the highest grossing film of 2014 (not to mention the biggest August opening of all time which is awesome because August is a notoriously crappy movie month). Now that it's pretty clear that Marvel could make a Devil Dinosaur movie and make a good haul, all eyes are on May's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" - that is, all eyes except ours! In honor of one of the most obscure properties in comics topping the box office, The Weekly Crisis is looking ahead so here are 10 Possible Ramifications that the events of "Guardians of the Galaxy" could have on the MCU!
