Iron Fist is NOT appropriation!!!

A Closer Look With 
Corey SaltyTruth Floyd


 The last piece of The Defenders team Iron fist will be coming out this month on Netflix. It's about a young man being bestowed with martial arts skills and and a magical technique called the Iron Fist.The character is being played by Finn Jones most remember him as Loras Tyrell from Game of Thrones and now he’s covered in Marvel Magic. But as we lead up to the shows release I keep seeing the following trend online “Why isn’t he chinese? I thought he would be asian! This is Appropriation man!” Now at first glance I can see where they are coming from, but it's a good thing I know a thing or two about Iron Fist. He was created in 1974 a few years after Luke Cage. As a child he was blessed with amazing powers and Learned Kung Fu. Now I get what you’re thinking “I don’t see why he can’t be Asian” right? Well that's where his antagonists come in. Most of his enemies  are actually out to get them because he has the great power and he's not even Asian. So, even in the comics they are trying to kill him just for being white and being given special abilities plus a whole lot of other reasons that I don’t want to get into. I want you guys to see for yourself. I had to write on this because I think people are not being informed when it come to comic book characters and they say things like he is supposed to be asian. Sidenote!! Scarlett Johansson is not whitewashing “The Major” in the upcoming Ghost In the Shell film. Why? Because the Character has no identity no actual name to associate her with anyone so she can be either white, black, asian, etc and it doesn't matter or mess with the narrative. To wrap up, I hope everyone learned a little something today we need to do a little research before we play the race card. Because if you wanna call appropriation watch GODS OF EGYPT. Peace

Casting Thoughts By Corey Floyd

Recently John Boyega was seen at Marvel Studios and no one has heard anything since. My thoughts were in the air but an artist Boss Logic made something that got me thinking.   Now hear me out I know it sounds crazy but now that I see it in front of me it’s not crazy at all. We have seen the body transformations from Marvel before. John is in good shape but he’s not in Marve shape in a few months he could be the next Blade. Now I know there a few thousand of you out there yelling “Wesley Snipes is the only Blade blah blah blah “ I like Wesley I really do but at 55 I don’t see him moving like he used to and it’s time for younger blood. He wasn’t even moving like his old self in Blade Trinity.
I’m digging into Iron Heart again. Now a while back I had a few choices on the matter you can check them out here http://www.amerimewire.com/2017/05/whos-next-part-two.html but after watching Black Panther I have a new idea. What if Shuri became Iron Heart? It’s not a far-fetched idea. What if Sta…

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Made in Abyss Discussion

BY LUIGGI CAVANNA The Final Episode
“This anime season was a little bit underwhelming”, those were my thoughts at the beginning of the season if I recall correctly. I did talk about three different shows of this season in my blog “The Anime Season So Far”, but let me say that “Gamers” didn’t quite recover after episode five, and “Tsurezure Children”, even though stay consistent, was still just a romance anime and if you are not into romance you were shit out of luck. So aside from two-day specials like “Owarimonogatari” or recurring anime like “Boku no Hero Academia” there wasn’t much out there, except for…



Of all the shows from this season, “Made in Abyss” was the one I waited for, every week, with the most anticipation. This show left such a mark on me that I have to talk about it, so I decided to create another segment like “The Anime Season So Far” and name it “The Final Episode”. In this segment, I’ll take a second look at one anime near the ending of a season, in which I’ll discuss…
