    Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek: Enterprise. The series was the sixth in the popular Star Trek franchise and the only prequel, having spun-off from the time traveling film Star Trek: First Contact and being set before the original Star Trek series. Enterprise followed the crew of the title ship as humans first began to explore the galaxy while building to the formation of the United Federation of Planets that is well established in the other series. Unfortunately, the series was plagued with poor critical and fan reception as well as low ratings and was part of what ultimately ended the franchise for a time.

    Today marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of the premiere of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends with the episode "The Triumph of the Green Goblin". This marked the first time that a single Marvel character appeared on two separate animated series, as the series titled Spider-Man was currently airing.

Both series would be joined by the other loosely connected series The Incredible Hulk the following year.


    The series featured the talents of Dan Gilvezan as Spider-Man, Kathy Garver as Firestar, and the legendary Frank Welker as Iceman. It also had Neil Ross play Wolverine and Green Goblin, who would go onto reprise Wol…

    Today is the fiftieth anniversary of the premiere episode of Star Trek titled "The Man Trap". It was actually the sixth episode produced, though the first to air, following four in the ongoing production and the original pilot. In the episode, the crew of the Enterprise must uncover a murderous alien that absorbs all the salt from its victims' body.

    The episode launched the incredibly popular Star Trek original series. The series only lasted three seasons and was constantly threatened with cancellation. However, in its short time it literally changed the face of television. It was the first series to prove that television was not just for lowest common denominator entertainment and could be enjoyed by intelligent people, as the studio was bombar…

    September 1, 2016 by ARTaylor

    Another poll wraps up as another month comes to a close. Last month we asked which animated film villain was the best. There were plenty of options but one came out the clear winner.


    1. It wasn't even close as Ultron of Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow came in first with 58.3%. Of all the film villains, the robot was the most successful as it killed all but two of the world's superheroes. Upon its initial introduction, Ultron has maintained a high profile status as one of the Avengers' most fearsome villains. It also helps it was the main villain of the most recent Avengers live-action film.

    This year marks the tenth anniversary of the release of both Ultimate Avengers and Ultimate Avengers II, being released on February 21st and August 8th respectively.

The purpose for the animated films were to create the stories that the live action films could not, at least at the time.


    The first film was based on the early The Ultimate comics by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch. This story was chosen to bring together many well-known personalities, and be a kind of The Dirty Dozen. The story is mostly faithful to the comics, at times recreating scenes entirely. Though many of the character designs and stories are most influenced by the …

    75 Years of Jeep

    August 27, 2016 by ARTaylor

    Today marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of Jeep. It was on this day in 1941 when the Willys car manufacturers began producing the Willys MB. Used for the military during World War II, they became popular for their off-road capabilities eventually becoming known as Jeeps. It was only afterwards that this became the brand name. Jeeps have become iconic due to their slotted grille while today's Wranglers still maintain the basic shape and look of the Willys.

    Jeeps continue to be a part of military transport as well as popular among off-road enthusiasts. On X-Men, Wolverine had a Jeep, where the brand name was specifically used. They were shown as military vehicles in The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man Unlimited. Poachers sneaking into Wakanda us…

    The Return of Solarman

    August 16, 2016 by ARTaylor

    Unless you're really steeped in the history of Marvel Comics, or at least browse around this site, you're unlikely to know the name of Solarman. Well, back in the late 1980s and early 1990s Stan Lee and Mike Zeck tried to create a new comic book series and animated series titled Solarman. While a pilot episode was made, the series was not picked up and comic book only lasted two issues.

    Well, it looks like Solarman is being given another chance at the creator-owned Scout Comics. It will be spearheaded by Batman editor Joe Illidge along with Deadpool artist N. Steven Harris. This new series reimagines Solarman as an angsty and socially conscious hacker who is on the run from police, the military, and aliens.

    July 2016 Poll Results

    August 1, 2016 by ARTaylor

    It's that time again when a poll comes to a close. Last month we asked what kind of animation viewers prefer to watch: traditional hand-drawn, computer generated, or a combination of the two.

    1. Winning in a landslide with 61.5% of the votes was traditional animation. Computers have tried to push traditional animation out but, if anything, computers have tried harder to imitate traditional. Traditional animation goes back to 1967 with Spider-Man and continues today.
    2. In a distant second with 23.1% was a blend of traditional and computer animation. When computers came onto the scene in the 1990s Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Silver Surfer were the first to include it though with it still in its infancy it was noticeable and stood out. Since then, computer…
