11th Monthly Topic: “Failure”
One of the best ways we can learn is through failure. This month we will be talking about the failures of our favorite characters in pop culture media and what we can learn from them. We will also reflect on our own mistakes and failures and how those experiences have allowed us to grow as human beings.

Who would have thought that Aquaman would have an awesome movie good as Wonder Woman? Aquaman was a fun DC movie in 2018 in which tells the story about a man named Arthur Curry who is half-man, half-Atlantean who must step up in order to prevent an upcoming war between Atlantis and the people living in the surface land. Arthur will become not just a hero, but a king. As a Pop collector, I was eager to get this movie set; not only I got three copies of the movie (DVD, Blu-Ray and digital), but I also got the keychain Pop Funko figure. Just like my Alita post, this one is small enough to accessorize. Unfortunately, I wish they would have taken better care of the box set. It has some dents and bends, but at least the figures and discs were fine. This keychain counts as my 36th figure of my set.
It took imagination to create these colorful characters and make them heroes and villains. This one man created a comic book revolution and with many artists like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko and many more, he made characters like Spider-Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Loki, Magneto and much more. This man is Stan Lee. It has been one year since it was announced that Marvel comic book creator and CEO Stan Lee has passed away.
Throughout the years, Stan Lee has created so many heroes and villains and build a world where we grew attached to them. Thanks to him and his team, we can relate to many characters and look up to them. We can be the down to earth and awkward Spider-Man, the rampaging monster Hulk or even someone as patriotic like Captain America. He also made villains that was memorable and gave us lasting impressions on epic heroic battles such as the magnetic manipulator mutant Magneto, the trickster god Loki and the green creep Green Goblin. Not only Stan made so many comics, he was also well known for making cameo appearance in Marvel movies and TV shows. He may not have been in every single film, but he sure knows to attract attention to his fans. He was in Marvel movies (Disney, Fox and Sony), TV shows, video games and even in a DC animated movie called Teen Titans Go! to the movies.
His last cameo was in Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. As a fan of Stan Lee, it still saddens me that he passed away. However, at least he is resting in peace and he is reunited with his wife, Joan Lee. What is your favorite cameo appearance? Did you meet Stan Lee? What was your favorite characters?
Thank you Stan Lee
Hey everyone, welcome back for more news from yours truly. I have some exciting news to share for upcoming 2020. If you are excited for 2020, I got something that will make you squeal. It was announced a while back that Paramount Pictures was going to release the movie Sonic the Hedgehog in February 14, 2020. Reason being is because a lot of Sonic fans did not like the appearance of Sonic in live action. Today, Paramount Pictures has just released a new trailer of the movie with Sonic with a whole new makeover. Sonic in this movie resembles from the video games. What do you guys think about Sonic’s new look?
You can watch the first trailer of the old Sonic design here.
Thanksgiving is an important holiday for us Americans. Not only we carve the turkey and share food with a friends and family, we reflect what are we thankful for in life. After Thanksgiving, it’s the start of the Christmas season. Black Friday and Cyber Monday become the big hitters for Thanksgiving for shoppers who wants to buy gifts for others and buy something sweet for themselves. If you are going to stay home and watch TV on Black Friday or you want to do something fun, we have the Macy Thanksgiving Parade. Last year, Funimation and Toei Animation teamed up together to create a Super Saiyan Blue Goku float for the Macy Thanksgiving Parade. Goku got to experience a parade with other iconic characters such as Pikachu, Spider-Man and even SpongeBob. It’s been announced that Goku is coming back again for this year.
Depending on your experience, 2019 has had some good and bad moments. In the anime community, besides the Vic and Funimation debacle, we had the worst tragedy in which an arson had attacked the Kyoto Animation building and staff. If you didn’t know, in July of this year, a man attacked the Japanese studio Kyoto Animation with fire. The work of KyoAni was safe but this attack costs the lives of many workers. Because of this attack, most of planned anime projects are all delayed and workers and families are trying to recuperate and deal with the losses.
There is some slight of hope for KyoAni fans. Fans can still hope for the anime movie Violet Evergarden: The Movie. It’s not the spin-off Violet Evergarden: Spin-Off – Eternity and Auto Memory Doll –; This movie was premiered in Japan and it will be heading towards to Australian cinema. Now, Kyoto Animation announced at their website that Violet Evergarden: The Movie will be in Japanese theaters in April 24, 2020. Originally, this movie was expected to come out on January but after the attack, it got delayed.
If you think there’s too much of Goku and Vegeta in Dragon Ball FighterZ, maybe a Broly character will take your mind off these characters. Bandai Namco released a gameplay trailer of Dragon Ball Super version of Broly. This Broly is from the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly and it was created by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. DBS Broly is the last DLC character for the second season pass. There is no release date yet. What do you think about this version of Broly?
If you’re a One Piece fan and you are enjoying Jump Force, you might want to keep an eye on this character. If Toshiro isn’t enough for you to get this game, maybe you’ll like Law. Joining the game is another DLC character from One Piece. The character that is joining the fight roster is Trafalgar D. Water Law. Law is Captain of the Heart Pirates and he is one of the Worst Generation Pirates along with Monkey D. Luffy and Blackbeard. Law has formed an alliance with Luffy and his crew in order to take down Kaidou, one of the Four Great Emperors. According to Bandai Namco, Law will be joining the game in December.
Law is the seventh character from One Piece that will be joining Jump Force.

Are you ready for some magic?
Hello Disney fans! As we are couple days away until Disney+ is released, most of us are going to subscribe to this service and watch many Disney content including exclusives. You might be wondering, will this only be for North American users or will be all access to all? I got good and bad news. Good news is that Disney+ will be released for fans all over the world such as the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. These are known announced locations in which fans will be able to stream and more than likely, more will be added. The bad news is that EU fans will have to wait 2020 to get access. The official release for Disney+ for EU fans will be March 31, 2020.
