Adult Swim's Apollo Gauntlet – First Look

Apollo Gauntlet is a new animated comedy series coming to Adult Swim. Created (and animated) by Myles Langlois and produced by Six Point Harness (the production studio of animation company MONDO and Mosaic).

Take a look at the exclusive trailer and official synopsis for Apollo Gauntlet below.

Paul Cassidy is your standard Canadian cop who stumbles onto a nefarious plot by Dr. Benign to open an inter-dimensional portal between Earth and, well, wherever. When Paul awakens in Dr. Benign’s lair, little does he know they’ll both wind up in another dimension, where Paul will become…Apollo Gauntlet! Armed literally with talking gauntlets, he’s stoic! He’s heroic! And, remember, he’s Canadian!

My Hero Academia Episode 26 Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

After the intensity of the sports festival, “Time to Pick Some Names” slows down the pace considerably, providing the students of U.A. High some much needed time to rest and recover. As such, this week’s episode may not be the most action packed or thrilling of Season 2, but its clever comedy and touching character moments make for a great episode nonetheless.

As its title implies, the central focus of this episode was the hero name selection process as the students prepare for their internships, which I found to be both amusing and emotional. I was really hoping Iida would choose to inherit his brother’s alias, and was heartbroken when he didn’t. Conversely, I was pleased with Todoroki’s decision to go use his given name Shoto as his hero name, as it reflects his continued growth in accepting himself. I also really enjoyed Bakugo’s horrifically violent name suggestions, as they were hilarious and true to his character.

Opinion: I'm Worried About Marvel's Legacy Relaunch

Marvel Comics has been following a pretty clear pattern in recent years. First, they ring in the summer with a major crossover event, one that wraps with major status quo changes for the Marvel Universe. Those changes feed into the company’s big, annual relaunch, as old books are cycled out and new ones are created in order to offer readers fresh #1 issues and new jumping-on points. This predictable cycle has helped provide regular boosts to Marvel’s sales figures, though there are also clear signs that the company is facing diminishing returns with each new relaunch.

The hope is that Marvel’s 2017 relaunch, Marvel Legacy, will be different. Much like DC did with Rebirth last year, Marvel is using Legacy as a way of refocusing their attention on their core characters and generally taking a more “back to basics” approach. That’s all fine and well, but I’m not optimistic that Legacy will be able to do for Marvel what Rebirth has done for DC. Yesterday’s underwhelming reveal of the 52 Marvel Legacy books suggested that it’s going to be business as usual for Marvel.

If you can’t seem to keep yourself still and need something, anything, to occupy your hands, the sudden explosion of fidget toys is just what you need.

And if you aren’t interested in dropping $20 or more on a simple fidget toy, we’ve also included a few ultra-cheap fidget spinners and cheap fidget cubes that will still get the job done (and likely make a little but more noise while doing it).
