Marvel’s Shipyard

Today I’m examining relationships in the MCU. Watching Agents of Shield last week led me to the realization that there are very few functioning or healthy relationships over at Marvel.

DC vs. Marvel… I Choose Both!

I finally caught up on Arrow and Agents of Shield after giving up TV for Lent. And upon reading tons of recaps and reviews it seems to me as if people are trying to choose between the 2 shows.
