A Marvelous Marvel Comics Inspired Musical Playlist

A marvelous Marvel Comics Inspired Musical Playlist

Marvel’s influence on popular culture and the references to Marvel within that culture has been rising equal to the rise of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but this list is proof that Marvel had its hand well into the popular culture well before the rise of the current MCU.

As with the DC inspired playlist I created, these songs need to be inspired by the comics, so Black Sabbath’s Iron Man, which is totally and completely unrelated to the comic character doesn’t get to be on the list. And no, it’s inclusion at the end of the 2008 Iron Man film doesn’t give it a pass.

The Russian Five is much more than just a hockey documentary

The Russian Five is more than a hockey documentary

The Russian Five is a very detailed and, at times, intense documentary on the Detroit Red Wings, and how their quest for the Stanley Cup had them looking at some of the most talented and, at the time, untouchable players in the world to make their team a winning one.

Reasons Are Several returns like a phoenix as Reasons Are Debatable

Reasons Are Debatable Podcast Review Agent Palmer

Guess who’s back? Back again. RAD is back, tell a friend.

Reasons Are Several is back, now under the rebranded guise of Reasons Are Debatable, and though the format is different, the heart of the show remains. Podcasts are nothing without personalities and for this show that was never debatable, especially when the last co-host seat change was made. With Matt and Neil, you knew what you were in for during their run of Reasons Are Several and, well, you already have a good idea of what to expect from Reasons Are Debatable if you listened to its predecessor.
