Glass is a misfire, and it’s the kind of depressing misfire that hurts even more given what it could have been.

Matt writes: It's immensely poignant that in the same year the Marvel Expanded Universe celebrated its tenth anniversary with the release of its twentieth feature, "Ant-Man and the Wasp" (on the heels of "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War," no less), superhero maestro Stan Lee passed away at age 95. His death brings a new level of meaning to the aching loss that pervades the finale of "Infinity War," though Lee got the last laugh with his hilarious cameo in the "Ant-Man" sequel, which brought down the house at the preview screening I attended. In addition to reading Peter Sobczynski's tribute to Lee, make sure to read Roger Ebert's four-star review of the film that kicked off the MCU: Jon Favreau's "Iron Man."

The title, "With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story," is a tip off, but if the only Uncle Ben you know is a nattily dressed black gentleman who sells conveniently packaged rice, then Stan Lee wants to invite you to his Marvel universe. This is the world where Uncle Ben adopted his orphaned nephew who would be bitten by a radioactive spider in high school. That sullen, selfish teen would soon find that the bite of karma can be transformational and he becomes a super hero with an attitude: Spider-Man.

He's from the Grouse Mountain Wildlife Refuge in North Vancouver; not a zoo. The veterinary clinic is also located in North Vancouver and Alpha is having his regular dental check up and cleaning.

I'm not naive enough to believe that, at some point in history, the media political coverage (national or international) was in fact absolutely impartial. After all, controlling the typewriter and, later, computer keyboards were human beings with their own passions and ideologies - and it is clear that, even if they tried to be objective (those who tried, at least), they couldn't avoid filtering one fact or another by following their particular beliefs. Unfortunately, even though that occurs, I doubt that the level of indoctrination exhibited by professional journalism in History reached the alarming level of proselytism we have witnessed in recent years: while in United States 9/11 turned the media into a spokesperson of Bush's government, allowing him to lead the country to a war based on lies (something that many realized only a while ago), in Brazil large "journalistic" vehicles clearly embraced right-wing candidates during recent elections with no attempt whatsoever of masking their partisanship.
