We are taking a brief break from the interdimensional, intergalactic shenanigans of Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy to come down to Earth. Spider-Man got his backdoor entrance into the MCU in "Captain America: Civil War", but now he is making his first solo appearance!
This time our journey involves an expanded role for the Ravagers, the return of Nebula, and the closest thing to a Field of Dreams moment we have had to date in the MCU, so let's jump in.
Like a lot of people who read these columns and follow the I Rebel podcast, I was a little sad when the news confirmed that Star Wars: Destiny was officially canceled, but not that surprised. Production delays coupled with the challenges of making the dice and packaging them together all combined to make it an easy decision for those in the organization that make those calls. So right now, we are not going to lament on that this time but talk more about which characters we might have seen (and in fact may yet see in Wild Horizons).
Like "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Ant-Man", I was skeptical of "Doctor Strange" at first. I'm not sure why, because I had not yet been let down by a MCU movie. I knew of Strange because I read the Infinity War comics, so I knew that he was powerful, certainly the most powerful character to date in the Marvel universe, but I hadn't read any of his solo comics. I wondered how the "Master of the Mystic Arts" would translate to the screen and whether audiences would be able to follow the - HOLY CRAP SHERLOCK HOLMES IS IN THIS MOVIE!
With the cancellation of this year's Gen Con, and all of the community events that go along with it, many content creators for the Marvel Champions, Arkham Horror, and Lord of the Rings LCGs from Fantasy Flight Games are joining forces to hold an online event called the League of Cooperative Gaming Convention (LeagueCG Con).
