Marvel’s ECHO: Chicken Soup for the MCU (review)


Marvel Studios has had a very rough in 2023. Missteps and poor judgment led to horrible production and the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars. So, to start this year with a side character that didn't resonate with me but did wanna see more of. I did enjoy this character in Hawkeye, but a spinoff? They do need to try something new. Well, ECHO. 

 here's something new,

ECHO? Who's that? 

Echo, also known as Maya Lopez, is a captivating Marvel character who brings diversity and depth to the comic book universe. First introduced in Daredevil comics in 1999, Echo is a deaf Native American superhero with photographic reflexes, allowing her to mimic any physical skill or fighting style she observes. Raised by the Kingpin, Echo's journey is marked by tragedy and resilience. Her unique ability to replicate movements makes her an extraordinary hand-to-hand combatant and an invaluable asset in battles. Beyond her impressive physical prowess, Echo's character is significant for breaking barriers as one of the few deaf superheroes as well as Native American in mainstream comics.  

The show takes place several months after Hawkeye and she has returned to her hometown, Tamaha, Oklahoma, after dispatching several gangs and putting a bullet in Kingpin's head. She is still trying to figure out where she belongs spiritually and literally. She has flashbacks of her childhood as well as some other woman’s. Meanwhile, little does she know she brought her New York problems home with her.  

Alaqua Cox as Maya gives a very stoic performance. Her acting is supported by her using sign language. At first, I was ready to sign it off as inexperience. By the third episode, I realized that she has been used as a killer so much that her emotions are finite, even towards the people she loves. like a terminator trying to be human.

The ones she loves,


The Kingpin returns with Vincent D’Onofrio playing him. A return to form, he kills every scene as more mentally unstable. He gives an unhinged performance. The supporting cast does a great job with their scenes. They're funny but not too funny. They're warm without feeling like they belong in a Hallmark movie.

I’ve seen most of them in another hit show called Reservations Dogs (Which I highly suggest it’s on Hulu). 

This is a spoiler-free review, but I will say this: The show is a one-shot, 5-episode adventure. It doesn't stay too long and never slows down to a crawl. The action is solid, and the level of violence is close to what we had with Daredevil on Netflix, so this isn't exactly for the little kids. This show was chicken soup for the soul of the MCU. It doesn’t cure the MCU issues, but it’s a good place to start. 

ECHO: Final Grade B (wasn't blown away but entertained)

Best and Worse of 2023

 Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, or whichever festive greetings resonate with you! We've just wrapped up recording our final podcast for the year, diving into the highs and lows of 2023. If you're reading this before the New Year, be on the lookout for our upcoming episode, "The Best and Worst of 2023," set to be released later this week.

"I'm eager to reflect on my personal highlights and low points, as well as share my anticipation for what lies ahead."


This year's gaming landscape has been a rollercoaster, with standout moments like Baldur's Gate 3 showcasing the potential when a studio prioritizes its fan base over financial constraints. Larian Studios has stirred up the industry, prompting other studios to either match their commitment or face disappointment. Redfall, I've got my eye on you.

Bethesda had a mixed year—Starfield burst onto the scene but ended with a whimper. Despite its flaws, the game boasts high replayability. Yet, it's time for Bethesda to shake up their model; and seriously, can we get a move on with Skyrim 6?

Rockstar teased us with a fiery trailer, but a two-year release window. The question arises: does the anticipation justify the wait until 2025, or is the mere knowledge of its impending release sufficient? Share your GTAVI feature wishlist with me.


For anime enthusiasts, this year has been nothing short of amazing. In our podcast, I delved into the second season of Goblin Slayer, Eminence in Shadow, and Shang-ri La Frontier. My anime of the year? Blue Eye Samurai. For a detailed review, check out our website Unfortunately, this year bid farewell to Hi Dive in certain regions outside North America, possibly due to larger players dominating the anime market. And yes, the end of A.O.T. stings.

Film and TV

James Gunn, with his bold move, ended the Marvel-DC love triangle, taking on the challenge of transforming the DCU into the MCU. Despite the MCU's recent stumble, there's hope for a stronger and more cohesive film and television studio. The industry hit a snag with Disney and other studios relying on A.I. during a prolonged strike, but the future looks promising for both DCU and MCU. Keep an eye on Skybound's rise.

Final Thoughts for the Future

While a detailed discussion awaits, I'm thrilled about the future of gaming with the integration of AI, VR, and AR in the next decade. Star Wars continues to deliver, and with Dave Filoni officially at the helm, the future looks bright. James Gunn's approach remains uncertain, but I trust his vision for the DC universe. As my second love, anime is flourishing, yet I'm anxiously awaiting the second season of Grimgar: Fantasy and Ash. Let's hope Mappa takes care of its team. E3 bid us farewell, and despite my prediction during the lockdown, it's sad to see it go. Amerime will be going live more regularly next year, so get ready to (possibly) be sick of me.
