The top 10 greatest MCU Heroines

Last week the 2016 Marvel Cinematic Universe season kicked off with the premiere of Agent Carter season 2. It was two hours of great entertainment and I look forward to the rest of the season. It also made me want to do a little MCU-celebration. As a nerd the best thing to do is a top 10 list and in honor of agent Peggy Carter I'm going to list the 10 greatest heroines in the MCU.

Some would jokingly question whether there even are enough heroines in the MCU to make a full top 10 list, and while there is a point about the number of male heroes being much bigger than the number of heroines you can most certainly find enough badass ladies to make a list like this while still having some left overs, including one possibly controversial omission in this case.

For this list the basic criteria for getting on it is that the character has to be female, have appeared in an MCU movie, tv-series or short and is of the heroic nature. The ranking is based on the amount of appearances the character has within the MCU, how much character development they've had, how badass they are in general and some subjective personal bias (why even deny it?).

With that said, let's get to it, beware of spoilers. These are the top 10 greatest heroines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Series review - Amazing Spider-man: Renew Your Vows

It's been a while since I did a review. In that time Secret Wars has been delayed and extended while the tie-in minis are coming to their natural ends. Like Amazing Spider-man: Renew Your Vows. So let's take a look at the entire series to see if it's any good or not.

That was fucking awesome.

Yeah, this isn't really comic book related. But that trailer is just too awesome.

Secret Wars #3

After the destruction of the world in issue one and the introduction of the new world in issue two, the third issue of Secret Wars takes things a bit slower but still manages to move the plot forward.

Beware of spoilers in this review.

The Amazing Spider-man: Renew your vows #1

The Spider-man story One More Day is one of the most controversial mainstream comic book stories ever published since it took away the marriage between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, a pairing that remains popular to this day. The Spider-man fans who are pro-marriage have been hoping for the undoing of the marriage to be undone in a follow up story and they're hoping that this Secret Wars tie in is going to be that story.

If that hope will be fulfilled remains to be seen. But so far Renew your vows has given us an intersting story with a married Spider-man at the center of it.

Secret Wars #1 - 2

Like the unrelenting hordes of the apocalypse summer is at our door and that means it is time for the big comic book companies to publish their massive mega crossover events, whether we like it or not, with a main series, mini-series a plenty that supposedly tie in to the main series and a fair number of the regular monthly series' halt their own storylines (or rushed them in previous issues) in order to tie in to the event and hopefully get more readers interested in their series. It's quite a lot to take in really, but that's the current nature of the industry.

I haven't paid much attention to Marvel's last two event series but since their latest magnum opus is supposed to reboot/reshuffle/reimagine/redecorate the whole of the Marvel universe I felt that it was probably necessary for me to get into it. So here's my, delayed because I'm lazy, review of the first two issues of Marvel's Secret Wars.
