‘Stranger Things 2’ Reinforced a Sexist and Ubiquitous Trope, But Season 3 Could Fix That

  • Indiewire
In the first season of “Stranger Things,” the quartet of young men (“the party,” to use the parlance of Dungeons and Dragons) is clearly a direct homage to the show’s love of Stephen King (many of King’s narratives revolve around similar friend groups). But it’s the addition of Eleven to the group — the “mage,” as Mike likes to refer to her — that aligns the show with an even more common trope.

Nearly any child of the ’80s and ’90s will fondly remember, as a part of their youth, watching cartoons. And for boys, there was a lot of fun to be had in identifying with certain characters. You could be a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” fan, but more intellectual types might consider themselves to be Donatello, while a more rebellious boy might prefer to don the red eye mask of Raphael.

DC and Idw announce Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II

Gotham’s Dark Knight will once again be joining forces with New York’s Heroes in a Half-Shell this December as DC Entertainment and Idw Publishing launch Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II, a six-issue follow up to the smash-hit crossover series of 2015 with James Tynion IV writing and Freddie Williams II on art.

“The original crossover between Batman and the Turtles was met with such positive enthusiasm from the fans, that it was only a matter of time before their paths crossed again,” said Idw President and COO, Greg Goldstein. “Fans have themselves to thank for making this a reality, yet again, and we’re confident that we can deliver the goods to meet their expectations with our talented creative team returning for round two.”

When Donatello goes looking for a new mentor to help him improve his fighting skills, he opens a doorway to another reality, hoping to summon the Turtles’ one-time ally,

Pop Culture Icons Reunite In Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II

One of the many great things about comic books is that the medium allows for crossovers to occur, a lot of which we’ll probably never see in live action cinema or even animation due to an unbelievable amount of red tape. Case in point: back in 2015, we finally saw Batman meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a team-up that had previously only went down whenever we were kids playing with the various action figures we owned.

Thankfully, we’re getting an official sequel now thanks to a real life team-up involving DC Entertainment, Idw Publishing and Nickelodeon. Granted, there was also the recent miniseries dubbed Batman/Tmnt Adventures, but that involved the animated versions of the characters, not the comic book iterations, and was a different beast entirely. But, rest assured, Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II is a sequel in every sense of the word.

The Tick review: a laugh-out-loud superhero satire

Ron Hogan Aug 25, 2017

The Tick, out now on Amazon Prime Video, is huge fun. Here's how the show achieves what its creator envisioned 21 years ago...

In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.

Stretch Armstrong And The Flex Fighters: first trailer

Kirsten Howard Oct 25, 2017

Animated series Stretch Armstrong And The Flex Fighters is due to hit Netflix in November. Here's your first proper look at it...

A few years back, Hasbro were hankering for a movie version of Stretch Armstrong to grace the big screen. It was part of a bunch of properties they were developing, along with various board games and toy lines. They even linked Twilight's Taylor Lautner to the lead role, and tapped Breck Eisner to direct. At this point, it looks like that project is a lost cause.

Comic Book Review – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #11

Chris Cooper reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe #11…

Man Ray and Sally Pride journey to New Jersey to investigate rumors of a mysterious monster… who happens to be new mutant Dreadmon!

Idw’s Tmnt has proven itself pretty capable of handling both large arcs and one shots. The trickiness usually comes down to whether or not a story has been given enough issues to breathe. In this case we have a mostly well-judged one-shot that not only introduces a classic Mutanimal, but also introduces new ideas for mutagen and how it can be used.

Half-man, half-jackal Dreadmon originated in the Archie series. I’d not seen him before so I went back and did a little research. There are similarities but the character is changed to better fit the Idw world. On one hand he seems like he’d be a good addition; he seems pretty well-adjusted, he’s fast, and his moral compass is facing the right way. I like him!

His back-story is covered very quickly, and that’s where there’s a problem. His history is so tragic, so real, that it clashes pretty strongly with everything else were presented. How could he possibly be the guy we see when he’s been through so much? It either undermines him as a well-written character or makes light of the real-life events that are used for his past. It doesn’t completely overshadow the issue for me, but the more I think about it, the more it’s a misstep.

However! There is still plenty to like. Newcomer Aaron Conley nails the feral qualities of Dreadmon (and others), whilst also serving up some exciting action sequences. Dreadmon himself looks a bit wild-eyed at times but I can forgive that when so much of the art is on point, especially when it marries so well with the characters.

Ray flip-flops a bit quickly on his opinion for my liking, but overall he and Sally are given great voices by Rich Douek. They’ve been a lot together and that camaraderie really shines through. Obviously I have issues with Dreadmon’s backstory but he’s a cool jackal. I’d like to see him join the team, even after this limited exposure.

I can’t go far into it, but the enemies we see this month are extremely interesting to me. They look cool, like someone was playing Altered Beast whilst working on the issue! But the real thing to note is the use of mutagen and the implications it could have for characters down the road. I want to know about this!

Tmnt Universe #11 has its problems but still comes out the other side as a solid one-shot that introduces a character that I can’t help but think will get on amazingly with Mondo Gecko. Hopefully we get to see that.

Rating: 6/10
