Stan Lee’s 10 greatest comics

Stan Lees 10 greatest comics

Stan Lee has died. While modern audiences probably know much more about the Marvel movies and televisions shows that dominate our viewing pleasures, it was his genius in creating so many beloved comic book characters decades ago that fuels Hollywood today.

Looper put out a video with his greatest comics. These subjective lists are usually fodder for debate, but I was so pleasantly surprised by their choices I decided to post it here. It may be the first time I agree with nearly everything in a video top 10 list. Fitting that it surrounds an icon like Lee.

From his quirky cameos in every Marvel movie to his down-to-earth perspectives present in every interview, there’s plenty to love about Stan Lee. But it was his comic book creations that have made a permanent mark on American culture.

2018 Browns look like the 1990 Cowboys

2018 Browns look like the 1990 Cowboys

The Baker Mayfield era is officially starting off as a success. Even if the Cleveland Browns lose every game the rest of the season, it’s still better than they’ve done since 2015 when they also won three games.

They don’t intend to lose the rest of their games. The 3-6-1 Browns capped off a strong home win against the Atlanta Falcons on the back of their rookie quarterback. Mayfield finished the game 17-0f-20 with 216 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. His near-flawless performance helped the Browns snap a four-game losing streak and sent them into the bye week with renewed vigor.

It’s plays like this one that have people excited in Cleveland:

Their chances of making the playoffs are practically non-existent, but hopes for a strong 2019 season are high. They are already further ahead than nearly anyone expected by matching their win totals from the previous three years combined. The team has had 11-consecutive seasons with a losing record, a streak that has them on their seventh head coach.

But Mayfield and fellow rookie Nick Chubb form an offensive core that could lead to winning seasons sooner rather than later. Chubb finished the game with 176 yards on 20 rushes and 33 yards on 3 receptions, scoring a touchdown each way. He showed off blistering speed with this 92-yard run, which broke the Browns’ record.

The 2018 Browns are reminiscent of the 1990 Dallas Cowboys. Rookie RB Emmitt Smith and 2nd-year QB Troy Aikman led a team that was 1-15 the year before to a 7-9 record. The next year, they were in the playoffs. The year after that, they won the Super Bowl.

Don’t underestimate Alyssa Milano

Small kudos to Alyssa Milano Debra Messing for stance against Womens March leaders

Debra Messing and Alyssa Milano have been at the center of Hollywood’s leftist political activism for years. Both escalated their rhetoric in the weeks leading up to the midterm elections. Now that the elections are (mostly) over, both have also done something good and long overdue by calling out Women’s March leaders Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez.

In an interview by The Advocate, Milano declared she would not be speaking at the Women’s March in January as long as the leaders continued to refuse condemning Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Why #MeToo Activist Alyssa Milano Will Not Speak at Next Women’s March

https://www.advocate.com/women/2018/10/30/metoo-activist-alyssa-milano-wont-be-stopped“Any time that there is any bigotry or anti-Semitism in that respect, it needs to be called out and addressed. I’m disappointed in the leadership of the Women’s March that they haven’t done it adequately,” Milano says now, referring to leaders of the Women’s March who’ve refused to denounce Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic, homophobic, and transphobic statements.

Messing followed up the story by Tweeting her support for Milano’s stance.

Messing is the stereotypical Hollywood leftist. She rants, often incoherently, and pushes an agenda based solely on what she feels in her heart. That’s fine and is fairly easy to counter, especially when do silly things like promote socialism. On the other hand…

Milano is different

I appreciate the sentiment from Milano because it resolves an inconsistency in her stance. The Women’s March has been a laughable contradiction by empowering women yet endorsing people like Farrakhan who stand against women. She also cited Farrakhan’s bigotry and antisemitism as grounds for demanding the Women’s March leaders disavow Farrakhan, which leads me to my new assessment of her.

Milano is a activism opportunist. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as many activists on both sides of the political aisle jump from cause to cause, following both the news cycle and helping to shape it simultaneously. For example, she shifted from #MeToo to “vote Democrat” in the days leading up to the election. Now, she’s shifting again to focus on defending illegal immigrants.

This is why her condemnation of the Women’s March leaders and Farrakhan is so important. She would lose credibility in her current fight against what she perceives as bigotry if she doesn’t call out her allies who support bigots like Farrakhan.

To be clear, I’m not suggesting Milano’s stance against the Women’s March leaders is in any way wrong. But as a necessary step for her to move on to her next cause, I don’t see it as a bold or unexpected move. It’s what any good leftist activism opportunist would do. She’s clearly much more politically savvy than many of her unhinged cronies in Hollywood.

The huge positive to all this is that she might be able to get enough high-profile women to echo her sentiment, forcing the Women’s March to either change leadership or finally rid themselves of the Farrakhan contradiction by denouncing him. If either of those two things happen, I’ll be very pleased with Milano’s actions and impressed by her clout.

Soon, we’ll see her transition her focus to the border once the California fires, which are hitting close to home (literally), have been contained.

Once the fire passes, expect more posts from the border.

I was wrong to dismiss Milano. Her leftism is driven by intelligent political calculations and fueled by a sincere belief in her ideology. She isn’t one of the many Hollywood snowflakes that are so easy to counter. MIlano is becoming a powerhouse.
