    In ‘The Mad Scientist’s Daughter’ we see that the author, Cassandra Rose Clarke, twists a slew of extremely interesting ideas together. It is set in the near future as a cataclysmic event has shaken the fabric of our world killing off quite a bit of the population. Humanity was able to survive. In order to […]

  • Who Will Be the Next Star Trek Captain?

    A recent interview with Bryan Fuller, who only thinks about a new Star Trek series in a wishful-thinking sort of way, revealed who he would like to cast as the captain. He put forth names like Angela Bassett, who he initially mixes up with Angela Lansbury, and Rosario Dawson for the second officer. Unfortunately for […]

  • Top Ten Worst Mothers In Comics

    Mothers can be one of the most significant, if not THE most significant influence on a person’s life, hopefully teaching you to make good choices and be kind to other people.  But even if they instead teach you to kill mercilessly or try to kill you, I think have to admit that is also probably […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Avenging Spider-Man’ #20

    The Spider-Man team up books in the past had honestly been a little bit boring before Dr. Octopus took over Spidey’s life. Now it truly feels as if it’s building to a huge crossover into the mainstream title as for some reason Doc Ock has been apparently collecting a lot of his old Sinister Six […]

    Of all of the Marvel characters that fall into the larger universe who can have their own book, Thor is the most fitting. Wolverine is everywhere to the point of it being ridiculous but Thor? He’s a God. He’s not going to just be hanging out with The Avengers all day. Therefor it’s fitting to […]

  • BBC America Unwittingly Spoils ‘Doctor Who’ Season Finale

    Sometimes you just wish that a TARDIS really existed,  and someone in BBC America is probably wishing that right this moment. In what can be most nicely described as a major “oops” (but in actuality is an epic fail), BBC America had inadvertently shipped out preorders of the ‘Doctor Who’ Season 7B Blu-ray/DVD set to […]

    It’s that time of year again, and we here at ScienceFiction.com are all about celebrating our mothers, and the mothers in science fiction if you happen to be unfortunate enough to be one of those. Even so, I say “Happy Mother’s Day!” that to all mothers, including the ones they may not have come by […]

    With a team (and I use that word very loosely here) consisting of Storm, Psylocke, Puck, Fantomex, and Cluster you’d think there would be a huge interest in what’s going on. Mix in them being on a black ops mission for Wolverine and throw in Bishop, Spiral (Psylocke’s #1 most hated enemy) and a girl […]

    In the last issue of Astonishing X-Men, we were still seeing the X-Termination event happening and while the event is over there are still repercussions occurring in the Marvel Universe. This issue shows the beginning of exactly one of those repercussions. Back in the Age of Apocalypse, Iceman had become a force of nature in […]

    by

    Well 4 our of the 5 issues of this mini-series are down and I’m still enjoying it far more than I ever thought possible. Turning a character like Alpha who at first you can’t stand into one that you are rooting for takes talent and Fialkov has been pushing that talent into each issue so […]

    Moms might just be the real super heroes in this world, usually taking the lead in guiding the next generation down the right path, while often juggling a career and various other commitments.  It must be an even harder balancing act, when raising a child with super powers, or perhaps worse, acting as a super […]

    Last issue, Jesus made the mistake of confiding in one of his Hilltop allies named Kal, who immediately hightailed it to rat them out to Negan.  Despite Kal’s head start, Jesus must try and stop him. Eugene is surprisingly resistant to using his new ammunition making setup to take on Negan and his men, naively […]

    When it comes to deities in the Marvel Universe, very few are stronger than the Celestials, the cosmic caretakers who oversee a number of things throughout the galaxies. But when Kang the Conqueror’s latest plot produced unstoppable versions of the Apocalypse Twins, Uriel and Eimin, a Celestial was exterminated and the pair refocused their attack […]

    The threat of Ex Nihilo’s plan to make the Earth sentient has been foiled and the powerful Starbrand and Nightmask have been dealt with for the time being, so it’s up to the Avengers to address each rogue pod that made it to the planet’s surface. In the last issue of ‘Avengers’, the one that […]
