This issue of Uncanny X-Men is not a groundbreaking comic or something that is going to be mentioned in the lists of the franchise’s best stories. It’s not going to be remembered in decades to come. But, from my perspective, it’s one of the most powerful inside looks into one of the most important characters of the Marvel Universe and a phenomenal writing example of what you can do with deconstruction when your goal is not destroying the character but rather to enhance him and make him grow to be better.
After the climax that was Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a process of reinvention after the exit of some of their main characters and Disney has decided to expand their biggest franchise through multiple series, with some of them being Falcon and the Winter Soldier, She-Hulk, Loki and more. But one character that has the potential to surprise fans that are not familiar with Marvel Comics is Moon Knight.
Despite being a minor character in the vast world of Marvel Comics, Moon Knight has a very strong following and some of the most experimental works of Marvel's long history, so it’s exciting to finally see Marc Spector in a live action depiction.
But, who is Moon Knight and why should we care about this character? Here we are going to tell you all you need to know about this dark Avenger of the night.
At a time when Marvel was severely struggling, The Ultimates were a breath of fresh air and they gave the company’s mightiest heroes a new take that was actually new, interesting and didn't devalue their core values, which is something that most modern writers tend to struggle with.
A massive inspiration for the MCU, The Ultimates have to get credit for not only that, but for making one of the best stories in this century regarding the Avengers and revamping them for a whole new generation.
That alone is a massive achievement for a massive series.
Back in like the 80's you could get a marvelous (pun intended) issue for a lot less money with a complete story, often done in masterful fashion and providing a larger insight into the protagonist’s mind and character, which is exactly what Deliverance, issue #182 the original Iron Man series, does here with Tony Stark: taking a look at him at his lowest point and following his journey to get back on his feet.
Having the X-Men in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is certainly something to be excited about: they are one of Marvel’s biggest comic book properties and they have enjoyed massive success on multiple platforms, so having them share the stage with the likes of Spider-Man, Thor and others is quite exciting.
Of course, adapting such a classic and vast franchise requires a lot of effort and while the Fox films have been overall good in general, there were major characters that didn’t receive the treatment they deserved and one of the biggest cases of them all is the legendary X-Men, Scott Summers, also known as Cyclops.
Tormentshows Spider-Man in what could very well be a horror story, Spider-Man is engaged in a conflict he has no idea about and has to cope with it like any other superhero.The entire first issue works as a buildup of sorts for the main confrontation, with Peter enjoying his life as Spider-Man and the Lizard killing everyone in his way–it creates a certain degree of tension that is quite interesting.
Avengers: Endgame marked an end to the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), changing many of our lives and our thoughts about Hollywood´s biggest franchise so far. But although this movie closed an awesome movie cycle (22 films in total), a special words uttered by Peter Parker in the SpiderMan: Far From Home trailer just opened an infinite number of possible storylines.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a grand success in the film industry for the last eleven years and an era has recently ended with its latest film, Avengers: Endgame. This film not only settled the Avengers’ fight against Thanos, but also made the whole storyline come full circle, even ending for many characters. But the MCU is going to carry on, introducing many important characters from the comic books and very few are as important and significant in the cosmic scale of the Marvel universe than Adam Warlock. But who is Adam and what could be his role in this new era of the MCU? We are going to explain it for you here.
Marvel Cinematic Universe maestro Kevin Feige and co. weren't kidding when they said Endgamereally was the coda to 11 years and 22 films of serialized storytelling. Fittingly, there is no mid- or end-credits teaser. There are no new hooks seeded throughout the film to push the story on to the next arc. In an unfamiliar move for the MCU, Endgamewraps up the first mega arc in cinematic history by wrapping up loose ends and spending the last 20 minutes of screentime saying goodbye to the two anchors of the franchise up to this point.

It's the long-awaited introduction of the storied Captain Marvel mythos, from Mar-Vell to Carol Danvers, to the big screen.
