She Geek Critique – Why Marvel Rules the Box Office

Brace yourselves – this week I’m going flat out Marvel vs. DC. Yes, I’m a Marvel chick, but to reiterate what I’ve stated in past posts, I do not hate DC. The majority of the characters and plots in its comics simply don’t do it for me. Marvel just does a better job of satisfying my tastes.

That’s what happened in 2014 in Disney’s blockbuster Big Hero 6. Now, in the semi-minimalist animation style of their recent movie and series comebacks, Disney XD brings back these familiar characters.  Continue reading Best Geeky Finds – Baymax Returns with Power
