Between 1938 and 1942, the company had already introduced several superheroes, which are still part of the comic book culture. The list below features the earliest superheroes in comic book appearances, some of whom still roam around a century later.  Superman DC comics…

‘Joker’ Set to Steal $1 Billion at the Box Office: Here’s Why

After two weeks at number one and slipping into second this past week, Joker has amassed well over $730 million and still climbing. While that may not be Avengers: Endgame level of money making, it’s an impressive feat for DC and Warner Brothers and finally put some excitement back into the Batman universe. First off,…

‘Gotham’ Finally Gives Us What We Want–Another Gloriously Stupid Hour of Television

After a few lackluster installments and a week’s hiatus, Gotham returns with what may be its most Gotham-esque episode in a very long time. And if you’re watching the show as I’ve suggested—which means you don’t really expect it to be good as long as it’s entertaining—then that’s a step in the right direction. “I…

‘Gotham’ Makes Jim Gordon Answer for His Crimes, then Sentences Him to Marriage

Gotham has never been known for its subtlety. So it’s no surprise that, with four episodes left in the series, Gotham just comes right out and addresses the question that’s been at the heart of the show’s run over the last four seasons: is Jim Gordon a good person? Or, more specifically, would the city…

‘Gotham’ Lacks a Sense of Urgency, Which Is Inexcusable at This Point

Even by Gotham standards, “Nothing’s Shocking” is a disappointing hour of television. And that’s really frustrating because, quite frankly, there’s just no excuse for it at this point. And let’s be clear—as I’ve said all season, I’m fine with the craziness. Mild-mannered guy who channels his rage through a ventriloquist’s dummy who happens to be…

‘gotham’ gives us a few memorable moments in an otherwise unremarkable episode

‘Gotham’ Gives Us a Few Memorable Moments in an Otherwise Unremarkable Episode

We’re now into the back half of Gotham’s final season, and I have to admit that I wasn’t blown away by this week’s installment. Of course, neither was anyone else (literally), which is part of the problem. You can generally rate Gotham episodes based on the number and size of explosions, and we only get…

Tensions Run High as an Old Flame Returns to ‘Gotham’

We’re halfway through Gotham’s final run, and, if you’ve been following along with me, you know I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how nicely things have progressed thus far. Aside from a few minor stumbles (and one really boring installment), it’s been pretty fun to watch. Gotham is at its best when it doesn’t take itself…

‘gotham’ reminds us that women don’t need superheroes to rescue them

‘Gotham’ Reminds Us That Women Don’t Need Superheroes to Rescue Them

If you’ve been following along, you’ve probably noticed that this last stretch of Gotham episodes has been pretty solid thus far (at least by Gotham standards). And while this week’s installment is a bit slower than the previous couple (only one near-explosion), it’s still not a bad hour of television. It sets the table nicely…

‘gotham’ explores what can happen when desperate people trust dishonest leaders

‘Gotham’ Explores What Can Happen When Desperate People Trust Dishonest Leaders

We’re four weeks into this final stretch of Gotham episodes, and I have to admit I’m pleasantly surprised with what we’ve seen thus far. Aside from one rather lifeless installment, it’s been pretty entertaining, which is all we really ask for from this show. You don’t have to make sense, Gotham, but you at least…
