I Haven’t Given Up On This Site

Working on Bleeding Cool has been incredible. I’ve met some awesome people and been able to talk to some very talented creators. 

I intended to still keep up with the B-List Defender, but I’ve been really busy and all my content and effort has been going to BC. That being said, I haven’t given up on the B-List Defender. I am working on figuring out what the new function of this site is.

So stay tuned, and keep reading comics!



This past weekend proved quite busy for me. I’m nearing the end of this semester, and the work is piling up. I thought I’d have the time to write a review or two, but it didn’t pan out. 

There won’t be a list for today either, as not all of the work is done. I’m aiming to have a review for Iron Fist #1 for Wednesday though. 

Again, I apologize for the lack of content. As always, keep reading comics, and I’ll see you again soon.

About Today and the Next Few

Sorry again guys, the transition back to college has been a bit hectic. There won’t be a review today, but there will be one tomorrow and another Barely Retro Review for Tuesday (this time on DC trade).

I truly am sorry for this.I love working this site, and it always sucks when I fail to make time for it.I’m going to do better for you guys, for overall discussion of comics, and for myself. 

Keep Reading Comics!


I Won’t Be Continuing Civil War II

I just thought I would go ahead and let you guys know that I’m not going to continue reading Civil War II. It’s not that the story is offensive or even really bad to me in any way. I just think it’s mediocre, and I don’t want to keep reading it. Plus, my finances aren’t unlimited (by the way check out my GoFundMe and Patreon! Yay shameless plug!), and this comic is five dollars an issue. I may read the trade when it comes out and give my thoughts on the whole story then. Sorry to anyone who was hoping for me to review the rest of the series.

Also, I am going to have an editorial up later today, this one on the need for new characters in comic books, so check that out when I have it posted.

Until next time, keep reading comics!

Honorable Mentions

So there were six that just couldn’t quite make the cut, despite being completely wretched and delightfully horrible individuals. I’m going to give you those six before I move onto the main event. Here they are:

The Green Goblin (Norman Osborn)

Spider-Man’s most feared foe, Norman Osborn was responsible for the Dark Reign of the Marvel Universe, where he attempted to put the X-Men into concentration camps and hunted the Avengers like fugitives. This was all while running a security force on par with Shield called Hammer. Furthermore, he is responsible for one of the most infamous murders in comic book history: the death of Gwen Stacy. Also, he is just a really terrible father to Harry Osborn.



A being from an alternate dimension who has attempted to end all life in the universe on multiple occasions, this mad tyrant has a body count that is on par with the Mad Titan, Thanos himself.


Sin, Daughter of the Red Skull

Where her father’s bloodthirst is tempered by a logical mind and endless scheming, Sinthea Schmidt kills for thrill of it, and her murders are more often impulsive. She shares her father’s hatred for humanity and has partaken in his plots on numerous occasions.



Brock Rumlow is a brutal thug whose only claim to fame is being an exceptional thug. He often works for the Red Skull and shares his tendencies towards racism. Crossbones is a spree-killing maniac who just happens to be good at it.


The Reverse Flash (Eobard Thawne)

Eobard Thawne is a descendant of Barry Allen from a far future trapped in our time period. He hates his ancestor and the legacy of heroism that he knows he can never live up to. However, Allen has not yet had the child that would be Thawne’s ancestor, so Thawne can’t kill The Flash yet. Instead, Thawne is happy making Barry Allen’s life a living hell, having gone so far as to travel even further back in time to kill Nora Allen, Barry’s mother. His capacity for hatred is immense, and it is all directed at one man. He was even willing to let the world come to an end during the Flashpoint incident, content with the fact that it was ending all because of The Flash’s mistakes.


Major Force

Girlfriend in the refrigerator (look it up).
