Spider-Man's Damage Control Explained

There have been rumblings about Damage Control making its Marvel Cinematic Universe debut for several years now, with ABC ordering a put pilot for a potential TV series back in October, 2015. Things have gone dormant since then, but there’s new hope for Damage Control’s MCU prospects thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming and it’s looking like the organization will be appearing in the upcoming Tom Holland-starring film.

With that in mind, now is the perfect time for a refresher on what Damage Control is and how it might fit into the increasingly complex tapestry that is the MCU.

Some Spider-Man: Homecoming spoilers and speculation follow.

Damage Control was conceived in the late 1980s by writer Dwayne McDuffie and artist Ernie Colón as “a sitcom within the Marvel Universe.” Basically, the various Damage Control comics take a more comedic, ground-level approach to the Marvel Universe, focusing on the collateral damage caused by massive battles between heroes and villains. Damage Control are usually the ones tasked with cleaning up after each disaster and keeping New York City in tiptop shape. Needless to say, it’s a full-time job.

The Flash: "Abra Kadabra" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

It’s always been frustrating how little interest The Flash shows in the actual Flash Rogues compared to Barry Allen’s speedster enemies. So the fact that “Abra Kadabra” introduced the titular villain to the Arrow-verse was a welcome step in the right direction. Sadly, the spectre of Savitar hung over what could have been a really entertaining episode.

The Flash crew certainly found the right man for the job. Dave Dastmalchian has practically built a career around playing minor but memorable characters in critically adored superhero movies (including The Dark Knight and Ant-Man). He was a great fit to play a theatrical showman from the 64th Century. He brought a nice energy and whimsical absurdity to the aprt. Yes his performance was pretty hammy, but if any Flash villain should be played over-the-top, it’s Abra Kadabra. You want the sense that a man born 4,000 years in the future is operating on a different wavelength from everyone else.
