    The Punisher Season 2 - Trust the Exchange

    Following it's highly received first season, there was a heavy amount of anticipation going into this coming season of the Punisher. As while the previous season covered a series of criminal elements in New York as well as interpretations of many of well known Punisher stories. However this time round instead of transitioning from one story to another as it established the ways and brutality of Frank Castle/The Punisher (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as well as his partnership with the likes of David Lieberman/Microchip (David Costabile) and Martin Soap (Eddie Marsan). This time round however the series would focus on one story and one story only which would be about a criminal syndicate which was teased in the previous season due to the work put in by William Rawlins (Tom Mison). The corrupt CIA agent who operated in the shadows as he looked to eliminate the threat that was the Punisher would soon find himself under suspicion of his ex wife and fellow agent Katheryn O'Brien (Lauren German). In fact O'Brien would confront Rawlins about his actions in their previous operations involving the Punisher. Only for Rawlins to remark that she has her orders and he has his, all he was doing is following them.

    Meanwhile having seen Frank go through what can be best described as a tumultuous ringer in the past season. Microchip advised Punisher in branching out and possibly having a team with him on the streets. This news didn't seem to sit well with Frank who mentions the other's he knows to have fallen in this crusade he has undertaken and that he will not pair himself with others to watch them die. Despite Frank calling this a lonely road, Microchip remains against his wishes and advises Frank to at least consider it. While Frank remained against the idea Micro revealed that he had been researching a few prospective names and advised him to at least check them out. This would lead to a trio of interesting scenes as Frank out of respect for Microchip and his own curiosity would come face to face with these vigilante's albeit in harsher circumstances then Micro might have anticipated or expected. As an armed Frank Castle would confront all three of the vigilantes one after another on separate occasions following observing their ways. The first individual to be confronted was known as The Elite (David Haydn-Jones). Presented as a yuppie who mainly focused on low level street crime such as drug dealers and junkies. It was during one of his recon sessions watching The Elite, that Castle saw the truth. The Elite with his strong belief in classism targeted anyone he felt was bringing down the tone or lowering the standard of Riverside Park was a victim. Be it homeless folk or even a stray dog urinating up a tree, in the eyes of the elite they were all fair game.

    Having seen enough of the Elite, Frank Castle would confront him in the art gallery he owned. Sick of everything he was hearing coming out of the Elite's mouth. The Punisher would gun down the Elite after branding him a Nazi. Following his 'chat' with The Elite, Frank Castle would then begin watching another of Micro's suggestions Father Hector Redondo/The Holy (Wagner Moura). Thanks to notes by Martin Soap on the Axe Murderer of Spanish-Harlem, Castle was able to put together that The Holy was in fact this serial killer. Confronting Redondo in his church. It is here that Castle would find out that Redondo prayed on those who confessed their sins to him. Despite Redondo's strong belief that he was carrying out God's Will by eliminating evil. Redondo was soon shot down by Castle who branded the Father a lunatic. This would leave Castle with only one more vigilante on the list being Mr.Payback (Sam Trammell). Possibly the most reckless of the three, Payback targeted what he considered to be the real criminals in society. This being the wealthy corporations who in his mind prey on the common man like himself.

    Unlike the others Payback had little interest in making Punisher see his way or understand his mindset. As when Punisher stopped Payback from shooting up the Worldwide Investment Corporation, Payback would respond by opening fire on Punisher. The shoot out would end with Punisher gunning down Mr.Payback as he branded him a psychopath who tried to justify the blood on his hands. Having visited Micro's three prospects and having dealt with them in his way Punisher confronted Micro about why he would even suggest those three. To Which Micro revealed that yes while he does think that Frank needs help, the truth was those he put forward unfortunately were individuals inspired by the Punisher and what he does. Which is why Microchip felt the need for them to handle them and now with that done they can actually consider whether someone else should join them.

    One of the interesting things about the previous season was how in many ways there were similarities to John Wick with the action and the story told. This time round however with one of the stories we got very much a Kill Bill vibe. This was thanks to the story told of one Rachel Cole (Rose Leslie). A former marine sergeant who returned from a tour of Afghanistan with honors. Rachel returned home with the intention to find a job and marry her long time fiance Daniel Alves (Jencarlos Canela). Daniel, a trauma surgeon at Lenox Hill Hospital very much was a kind considerate man in the scenes we was shown. Of course with Rachel's background it wasn't long for people to reach out in an effort to employ her. This included a private security firm or at least what was supposed to be one as she met with a mysterious individual named Alex Alaric (Jere Burns). Alaric who was accompanied by his chief of security Liam Malloy (Demore Barnes). During the course of this weird conversation, Rachel would find herself confused and concerned by the secretive, possibly shady operation which in turn would cause her to refuse the offer. Unfortunately this operation wasn't one to accept refusals lightly as later on during what was supposed to be the happiest day of her life because of some uninvited guests turned into a nightmare.

    As right as both she and her soon to be husband exchanged vows Rachel caught sight of Liam Malloy in the back of the church. Before she could react a team of armed individuals stormed the church before opening fire onto Rachel, Daniel and anyone else present for the service. This attack would lead to everyone but Rachel being killed as she miraculously survived despite several wounds and thanks to some emergency surgery was placed in a medical coma which she would later come out of with her mind fully set on punishing those who took everything from her. Part of this anger came from her talks with the police and Martin Soap as while Soap was sympathetic to her case made it clear that unfortunately these people were pros and that they clearly have connection as they cannot find anything on them. Frustrated at the little he could find on the case himself Soap turned to Microchip and gave him everything he had asking him to see what he can find. Unfortunately for the time being however this would be the last time in a while that Soap could meet with Micro as William Rawlins began taking a vested interest in Soap as he brought him into what he called the Punisher Task Force along with two officers Andy Seifert (Emmett J Scanlan) and Mike Pearse (Ryan Robbins). This task force was described as a covert operation which Rawlins had Soap personally drafted in thanks to all his time spent investigating Castle. However it would soon become clear that Rawlins was willing to bring down Frank Castle by any means necessary.

    Having slowly found herself convinced that there were a series of killings committed (Last season) designed to look like the world of Frank Castle but in reality not. Agent Kathryn O'Brien found herself more willing to work alongside Microchip in secret as she became convinced that there were things that Rawlins wasn't telling her about a conspiracy or agency running through law enforcement. This was all but confirmed in the following scene as William Rawlins met with the warden of Ryker's Island Jerome Gerty (Kevin Chapman). In this scene it was shown that Rawlins while fairly high up in this conspiracy was not the man in charge as he informed Gerty that his superiors need more men for their operation. Revealing that he was in fact releasing cons for whatever Rawlins' operation is planning, Gerty doesn't hesitate in asking who Rawlins wants this time to which William responds Stuart Clarke (Matthew MaCaul). Revealed to be an idealistic inventor who turned to crime after refusing to sell his designs to a larger company (Later revealed to be Stark Industries). Clarke's hatred for Stark as well as his arrogance made him an easy recruit for this group on his release.

    On his release Clarke would find himself met by two individuals who were also apart of this group. The first of which was a newly arrived crime lord known as Marcus Coriander (Josh Segarra). The gangster very much put money into the operation as in return he had mercenaries and weaponry supplied to him by the other man General Kriegkopf (Lars Mikkelsen). While little else of the group and their intentions was known what did get revealed was that the entire group was called The Exchange and that their intentions for Clarke were to have Coriander fund his work and Kriegkopf to give him the supplies in order to build the suit he had long wanted to create but never had the resources to do so. When Clarke left the room in order to begin his work both Coriander and Kriegkopf where praised by a mystery voice from a telephone who stated that Clarke will be a sufficient test for their recruit.

    What Clarke would design thanks to their resources would of course be a suit of armor for himself to wear under the name of Rampage. This armored suit would have several weapons attached making him a dangerous foe for the Punisher. Because as Rampage lived up to his name sake and began to target innocent bystanders he'd soon find himself confronted by The Punisher. What followed was a brutal battle in which Punisher took some major damage much to Micro's concern. That would be at least until Micro was able to hack into the suit of Rampage causing it to short circuit. This allowed Castle despite being badly injured to break the leg of Clarke before beating him unconscious with his own helmet. Before Castle could finish the job however he'd pass out due to blood loss as the sirens begin to come closer. But as police and the Punisher task force would arrive there was no sign at all of Frank Castle much to the concern of Martin Soap and Microchip. This was because Castle would find himself when he woke up being tended to by a woman called Angela (Jessica De Gouw).

    With the Punisher missing from the scene, Martin Soap in his concerned state began digging up all the evidence he possibly can. All the while both Andy Seifort and Mike Pearse would be supervising him before they got a call from Rawlins. Stationed in his office Rawlins picks his words carefully but makes it clear that when the time comes Soap like the others will need to be dealt with. Rawlins then wraps up the call as he sees O'Brien walk into his office. Similar to the last season O'Brien would look to talk to Rawlins about his plans and operations only to be brushed off by her ex husband who claimed that all he was doing was following his orders just as she had to hers. Of course Rawlins' actions in pushing her away only served to make her suspicions of her ex stronger. Meanwhile having found himself in a stranger's home, Frank Castle remained dubious of Angela's motivations as the young woman did all she could in order to befriend him. This would include her telling him of her own tale of loss to put the two closer together before eventually she would kiss Frank leading to the two sleeping together.

    While this may have seemed a case of Frank Castle truly moving on and living a life. In truth when Castle awoke the next morning he realized that Angela had in fact been planted to gain his trust as Frank would find Alex Alaric seated at the foot of the bed. As an angered Castle got dressed despite his injuries, Alaric revealed that they are men of similar goals and means. Stating that he has long been impressed of what Castle is capable of and his skill set Alaric brands his methods a tad simple minded. Stating that crime is world wide and that there are like minded people across the world. Alaric mentions his plans to create an army of Punishers before he personally asks for Frank to come in and help them with their training as well as work on the field. Castle is disgusted at what he hears as he brands Alaric's plan the makings of a death squad. This doesn't appear to sit well with Alaric who simply shakes his head before in a shocking moment Angela shoots Frank. Before she can fire off another round Castle wisely escapes by jumping out the window onto the fire escape before collapsing into the dumpster below.

    Badly wounded from his gun shot Frank miraculously was able to reach out and call Kathryn O'Brien who was quick to come and rescue him from a back alley before Angela could find him and finish him off. As she drove Castle to his hideout Frank would inform her of everything he knew of this group by Alaric before he revealed that he had heard some of Alaric's last words before he escaped and called the group the Exchange. With Clarke now back behind bars he found himself in an odd position as he was confronted on the exercise yard late one evening by Jerome Gerty. Clarke demanding out of jail threatened to expose Gerty's operation. Unfortunately these threats backfired on Clarke as from behind he was stabbed by Jigsaw (Michael Eklund). It is then that Jigsaw reminded Gerty of their deal only for Gerty to rescind the offer and have his guards drag Jigsaw back to his cell.

    Having handled the loose end that was Stuart Clarke, Jerome Gerty was summoned to a meeting as the Exchange gathered. It was here that we saw the entire group as Alex Alaric, William Rawlins, Marcus Coriander, General Kriegkopf and Jerome Gerty were all joined by security chief Chris Poulsen (Matt Nable) before the head of the exchange Stephanie Gerard (Kim Dickens) introduced herself. The head of the Exchange and the woman behind all their operations, Gerard likened everything they was doing to a business. One which would need to be totally perfect for them all to truly profit. This included cutting any loose ends completely off as well truly launching their Punishment Squad. Of course having now been made aware of the Exchange Kathryn O'Brien quickly recruited both Martin Soap and Microchip into helping her uncover more details while Frank recovered from his injuries. Putting himself at risk despite the spotlight on him Soap began to research the prison having became aware of the death of Clarke. Unfortunately this put him very much in the cross hairs of the exchange who ordered Pearse and Seifert to carry out the execution.

    Despite being kidnapped by the corrupt cops Soap was able to contact Micro using a burner phone he had concealed. This allowed Kathryn O'Brien to begin to head to his location unaware of just who has taken him. Pulled out of the trunk of the car he was trapped in Soap would learn of just how corrupt the officers were as they prepared to execute him on a construction site. Showing some surprising degree of fight Soap wrestled Seifert for his gun only to be clipped by Pearse. This sent Soap falling down a small ditch dug out by the site. As the two looked down at Soap's body and the mess this scene now was in a surprising moment Seifert then gunned down Pearse using Pearse's own gun. With Pearse dead Seifert then punched himself hard in the face busting his own nose before reaching for his phone. Breathing deeply in order to sell whatever story he had conjured up Seifert looked to have all his bases covered until he was confronted by O'Brien. Lying through the skin of his teeth Seifert tells a story of how Soap was investigating something and this led to him suspecting Pearse. Not being aware that Pearse was dirty, Seifert confronted Soap and the two met in private for Martin to tell him everything only for Pearse to show up and knock him out.

    Claiming that a shoot out then began and that both officers are now dead. Seifert acts like he is shell shocked by what is going on when suddenly Soap can be heard moving in the ditch below. O'Brien rushes over to check on him while she orders Seifert to call for back up. Reaching for his phone Seifert pretends to make the call before he reaches for his gun. But before he can even get a round off he is shot down by O'Brien who reveals that Soap told her he was on it. Dying from his wound Seifert is quizzed by O'Brien about what's going on and in a surprising act of decency Seifert gives up Rawlins as a member of the Exchange. Now fully aware of her ex husband and his corruption O'Brien began to work alongside Microchip to expose him while Soap recovered from his injuries. In a conversation with Microchip, O'Brien reveals that she knows Rawlins and that he will always look to save himself. Of course at the same time having became aware of the fall of both of his officers William Rawlins true to form looked to escape and save his own neck.

    This would lead to a series of scenes in which Rawlins would attempt to flee the state with both O'Brien and the Punisher in pursuit of him. Unfortunately they would not be the only ones in pursuit of Rawlins as with him turning traitor the way he had. It was under the orders of Gerard that a few of Kriegkopf's mercenaries would attack Rawlins. What followed was a chase throughout New York before it settled on the train station in which Punisher would kick one of Kriegkopf's mercenaries in front of a train before battling and stabbing the other. O'Brien meanwhile would engage in a shoot out with her ex husband Rawlins. As expected he was all about saving himself as he made numerous attempts to make her walk away and let him go. That would be until he was knee capped by the Punisher. Begging for his life like the coward we knew him to be Rawlins wasn't saved here as Castle knocked him out before later Rawlins would awake and find himself bound to a chair. Videoed and recorded under a make shift investigation Rawlins was given a series of questions by O'Brien in order to expose the Exchange. At first Rawlins played dumb that would be at least until O'Brien left the room for Castle to make him talk.

    A brutal torture scene then followed as Frank viciously beat Rawlins within an inch of his life. This included him brutally breaking the orbital bone of Rawlins with the butt of his gun. Cutting Rawlins free Frank continued to beat him until finally the cowardly Rawlins on film began to talk. In his confessions Rawlins confessed to numerous acts of murder, tampering and corruption while also exposing members of the Exchange. This was also backed up by Rawlins informing O'Brien of the combination to his safe at his home for her to get hold of what he called the last resort. The files he has gathered on all of the Exchange in order to truly make an escape should things have gone bad. Unfortunately this part of his confession was revealed to be a ploy by Rawlins who managed to grab Castle's gun but before he could even get a shot off Punisher slashed him across the throat with a blade killing him instantly. What followed was a montage set to Nobody Praying for me by Seether as we saw numerous officials and high up members of society exposed and arrested for their affiliation with the Exchange. This included Jerome Gerty who was shown to have locked himself inside his office before shooting himself in the head rather than face the consequences of his actions.

    With the Exchange being exposed and many of the members being profiled. This triggered a reaction from Rachel Cole who launched a revenge plan of her own as she looked to punish those responsible for the loss of her family and friends. Using what she herself has dug up as well as reports from the papers and her sources. Cole begins to target the Exchange as she takes them down piece by piece. With many of his men dying at the hands of Rachel, Marcus Coriander went underground as he looked to escape the city. Packing his bags Coriander was all set to flee until he was confronted by Angela. During the conversation between the two of them Angela reminded Coriander that there can be no loose ends in the Exchange before shooting him in the head. As Ben Urich (David Duchovny) continued to write articles and expose more details on the Exchange. He formed a friendship with Frank Castle as Ben provided Frank with whatever leads his sources gave him in return for Castle giving him more details for his stories. One of these tips provided by Urich would lead to O'Brien being able to apprehend Alex Alaric.

    Facing heavy jail time as well as the prospect of his days being numbered Alaric surprisingly began giving his own details of the Exchange. This included things no one else seemed prepared to share such as how Poulsen was a former member of Shield and Gerard a former member of AIM. While Alaric continued to talk Rachel Cole's quest for revenge would put her on the tail of Liam Malloy. Fully committed to killing Malloy, Cole struck down and killed many of his men as she proved to be just as formidable and vicious if not more so than Frank himself. Fleeing and terrified for his life Malloy in his panicked state reached out first to his colleagues at the Exchange only to be brushed off by Gerard's personal assistant Dove (Jessica Tovey). Still panicking Malloy did the next best thing he could which was reach out to O'Brien. Promising to tell her everything if she was able to come save him. It was the prospect of a trap which caused O'Brien to bring Castle along with her. Of course by the time they got to the location of Malloy they were not the only ones there for him as Rachel Cole was in hot pursuit.

    This would lead to a confrontation between Cole and the Punisher as Cole would not let anyone stop her while Castle couldn't let her kill Malloy just yet. While these two were at a crossroads O'Brien spoke with Malloy as he revealed to her what he knew of Kriegkopf. This included her finding out that Kreigkopf is a former member of the US Marine Corps before being kicked out for his sadistic ways. Branding Kriegkopf a psychopath Malloy continued as he stated that Kriegkopf is the backbone of the exchange thanks to his constant recruiting and training of all kinds of violent individuals. Before Malloy could say much else however he was shot by a sniper. As Malloy fell to the floor dying Frank, Rachel and O'Brien rushed for cover while the sniper was revealed as Gerard's assistant Dove. After the death of Malloy, Rachel Cole found herself some potential allies as she returned to Castle's base along with O'Brien having told them her story. Along with this Cole was able to provide more knowledge on the Exchange based on her interrogation of several low level members and is able to confirm that Kriegkopf's operation is taking place at Grand Nixon Island.

    While Microchip did his research to get a scope on the Grand Nixon Island. Frank Castle met with Ben Urich as the two's developing partnership continued. Because while Urich may not have been a fan of Castle's methods he could not deny that good his methods accomplished. Unfortunately as the two continued their conversation a vengeful Angela would be watching from a distance having been driven insane following the arrest of Alaric. Climbing behind the wheel of a car Angela recklessly speeds down the street as she looks to take out the Punisher. Pushing Urich out of the way Frank fires off several shots at the window of the car one of which clipped her causing Angela to swerve the car tipping it over. Thrown through the window and landing hard onto the pavement Angela doesn't survive her wounds as Castle gets the call to return back to the base. At the Punisher hideout Castle is joined by Soap and O'Brien who agree to to go along to Grand Nixon Island along with him. In a surprising move one which Castle claimed was for her best interest. It was decided that Rachel was to stay behind as in Frank's words this was a dangerous mission in which you need a clear head and that she was too emotionally attached.

    Despite Rachel's protests she eventually saw sense all the while Chris Poulsen showed up at Kriegkopf's base to warn him that they were coming for him. Kriegkopf ever the sadist and in his mind fearless warrior remained confident that he and his punishment squad could handle any would be attackers. What followed was a great battle scene as Punisher, Soap and O'Brien all showed up armed to the teeth to battle Kriegkopf and his men. Under heavy fire from Kriegkopf's squad, Castle managed to burst through the crowd while O'Brien and Soap continued the shoot out with the Squad as police arrived on the scene to give the officers back up. As he made his way into the main building Frank finds himself confronted by Kriegkopf. Kriegkopf curses Castle for refusing to join them as he attempts to convince Castle of their similarities. Instead Castle refuses his offer which causes Kriegkopf to draw his gun but Castle was quicker to the draw and shot Kriegkopf to the stomach. As Kriegkopf collapsed into his chair and slowly started to bleed out. He remained cold as he stated that while he may be wounded the fight is not over.

    It is then that Castle is attacked by Chris Poulsen who attempted to strangle him using razor wire. What followed was a short and brutal fight which ended with Castle breaking the neck of Poulsen. Turning back to Kriegkopf before admiring the many munitions he had all across the building in particular the explosives. Frank calmly walked to the door before using a lighter to ignite a stick of dynamite which he tossed in the General's direction. Showing fear for the first time as he is unable to put out the fuse Kriegkopf let out a terrified no as the explosion triggered numerous more throughout Kriegkopf's base while Castle calmly made his exit. The explosions distracted the remaining members of the punishment squad allowing the cops and Soap/O'Brien to eliminate the remaining members. As they are rejoined by Castle it is revealed that Castle has swiped Poulsen's phone during their fight.

    With the help from Microchip on the computer back at the base. Castle calls Stephanie Gerard from this phone giving up her location as she learns the news of Poulsen and Kriegkopf's deaths. What followed was a surprising twist on the story as with the news of Gerard's location Rachel Alves began to armor up. Confronted by Microchip about what she was doing. Rachel informs Micro that while she was willing to step back for the Kriegkopf mission. This was her fight and that she had to do this on her own. Despite any misgivings he might have had Micro eventually relented and offered to help her all he can as she headed off to the Exchange's headquarters. What followed was surprising as one might expect that Gerard with all this hostility would respond with force to Rachel Cole-Alves arrival. Instead she had her security team wait patiently for Rachel and inform her that the boss was waiting for her. Scanned and having her weapons taken from her Rachel is then escorted into an elevator where she is greeted by Dove who continually flies under the radar thanks to her quiet and soft spoken nature.

    Escorted from the elevator towards the office of Stephanie Gerard. It is here that we saw the true leader of the Exchange in all her glory. Instead of an arrogant criminal like Coriander, a selfish self serving individual like Rawlins, a greedy not too mention power hungry Gerty, charming con man like Alaric or sadist like Kriegkopf. In Gerard what we got was a ruthless businesswoman. One who was driven by the fall of AIM to create her own criminal enterprise and one who simply saw all of the goings on a clearing of the table and a chance to rebuild her exchange. This is why she brought Cole-Alves here to her as she needed her to understand that what happened to her wasn't anything personal. Instead it was an operation in it's early stages that looked to do damage control save it being exposed to soon. Continuing Gerard revealed that Malloy was too rash and was only supposed to kill her. But instead he and his group at the time got carried away which is why she had the Exchange's best eliminate his entire group to send a message. Cole seemed angered by this news as she stated that it didn't change anything.

    With a smirk on her face Gerard informed Rachel that on sitting across from her she knows. Because Gerard then reveals that her original intention here was to in fact recruit Rachel to her cause. To start a new exchange filled with truly powerful and driven individuals. But that Rachel's rash and reckless emotions have caused her to come alone and that her lack of awareness has caused her to walk into a verifiable safe room equipped with bullet proof glass among other protective designs. Rachel remained fearless as Stephanie watched her silently from behind her desk. Knowing that Gerard was about to attempt to kill her. Rachel dared her to take her on one on one only for Gerard to smile and inform her she won't have to. As the Exchange's best will do so instead and with that Dove attacked Rachel with a garrote. With the rope going round her neck Rachel tried to fight valiantly as Dove continued to pull tightly on the garrote.

    A brief montage of scenes followed starting out with an angered Castle confronting Microchip about letting Rachel go alone. After Micro asserting there was no stopping her. Micro gave Frank the address of the building which Frank immediately rushed out to. Meanwhile with her air cutting off despite her best efforts. Rachel began to see her life flash before her eyes as she saw tender moments with her fiance as well as her family. But just as it looked like she might be dying from this attack. After a flashback showing her husband tell her how strong she was and that she should never quit on herself as she is stronger than she will ever know. Rachel found new life and began to fight her way from Dove's clutches. This surprised Dove as Rachel flipped her over her shoulders and onto the floor. Staggering back to the door Rachel took a moment to catch her breath before she clutched her ears as both Gerard and Dove spotted a mini flash grenade on the floor. With the device going off and disorientating both individuals Rachel is able to quickly kill Dove by slamming her head first into Gerard's desk snapping her neck. Wasting no time Rachel takes advantage of the chaos and uses the garrote on Gerard to kill her once and for all.

    As she made her exit from the building using the elevator Rachel found on her exit the guards all shot down as she was met by the Punisher. As the two faced off she thanked him as she stated that while he may not have been happy with her decision to go it alone. He knew that her staying behind from the Kriegkopf attack would give her the time to get ready for her to truly get her revenge. It was then that Rachel kissed Frank on the cheek before promising that she would attempt to live and rebuild her life now but that if he ever truly needed her help in the future she would be there. That would end this second season of the Punisher on somewhat of a happy note for the series. However the single post credit scene afterwards showed what looks to make for a chaotic season 3 as when O'Brien and the police were called to Ryker's Island news was given to them that during the death of Gerty a prisoner killed a paramedic and made an escape.

    Namor The Sub-Mariner: The Atlantean civil war!

    With the Fox's Marvel universe continuing to broaden it's horizons in regards to it's projects. What followed in it's latest new addition to it's already expansive universe was quite possibly it's most adventurous, daring and unique project yet. Because while this ambitious, out there story was very much hit and miss to many. It showed how far Fox's marvel universe was willing to go in order to expand it's storytelling. As this season would be very different compared to many of it's previous shows as it would very much focus not only on it's world building but also very much come off as it's own little world thanks to it for most part staying in the kingdom of Atlantis. Also making this show very intriguing to watch was the blurred lines that the show focused on as it primarily had four main characters each with claims to the throne and each with their own reasons for wanting to take it. Of course the main focus would be on the titular character Namor (Daniel Dae Kim). While the main character of the story and in many ways the protagonist. Namor was interestingly shown to be quite a dislikable character in some ways. A lot of this was down to his rash, aggressive not too mention impulsive nature.

    Of course before we was shown Namor in the present. We got some insight into not just his origins but also the city of Atlantis. Starting out with glimpses from the land above the opening scenes were set in the 1920s and focused on a ship and a crew on expedition. The crew was led by the tough yet honorable Leonard McKenzie (Lochlyn Munro) as they looked to reach Antarctica. Unfortunately midway through the expedition the ship would get stuck due to the conditions. After days of getting stuck and their resources waning McKenzie and his men in an effort to free the ship would detonate some charges undersea in order to escape the ice. The explosions while saving him and his remaining crew's lives would wreak havoc undersea as it heavily damaged the lost city of Atlantis much to the anger of Emperor Thakorr (Michael Greyeyes). A proud ruler who reigned over his kingdom with an iron fist. Thakorr's reaction was to lash out against the attack or in his mind declaration of war. That would be until his daughter Fen (Elizabeth Reaser) would persuade her father to use some tact and send her to scout out whatever caused the explosions before recklessly attacking. With the help of atlantean scientist Vyrra (Mary Stuart Masterson). Fen was able to find a way to breathe above water for a long period of time.

    Unfortunately this recon mission would soon fail as Fen would be captured by McKenzie and his crew. Not sure of what to make of Fen, McKenzie despite his crew's misgivings elected to treat her with kindness. Slowly a bond would form between the two as Fen grew to trust McKenzie as he taught her how to speak and read English. With the time spent between the two growing a noted attraction formed as the two began to develop feelings for one another. However unknown to Fen with her time away from home extending Thakorr prepared to wage war on the humans. Meanwhile with their feelings brimming over Fen and McKenzie would finally consummate their relationship on what unfortunately proved to be a fateful night as Thakorr sent many of Atlantis' best to attack the ship. Led by ThaKorr's captain of the Atlantean Military Commander Krang (Justin Rain) the attack would seen Fen unwilling pulled back into the sea by Atlantis' soldiers while Krang personally saw to the execution of McKenzie. Despite her protests Fen was returned home where it was later discovered that from that very night she had become pregnant.

    Despite his anger over the conception of the new prince of Atlantis. Thakorr allowed Fen to keep her child which she named Namor. Despite any misgivings had by Thakorr about the prince. He quickly found himself impressed with Namor's abilities which thanks to his hybrid nature excelled him beyond Atlantean capabilities. Unfortunately Namor would not get much longer with his mother or grandfather as the first of many wars broke out which led to the ruin of Atlantis. This battle saw many atlantis natives slain at the hands of the Skara Tribe and it's ruthless leader Attuma (Anthony Starr). Attuma, a revered and brutal warrior known and feared for his skills and lack of mercy. Very much considered himself the next in line for the thrown as he and his people attacked. During the battle both Fen and Thakorr would tragically die leaving Prince Namor to become the new ruler of Atlantis much to the dismay of many thanks to his youth and rash nature. In one of his firsts acts as the emperor. Namor would wed his childhood friend who he had long been betrothed to in Dorma (Mozhan Marno). Despite at first the two sharing a slightly antagonistic relationship with Dorma like many unsure of Namor's capabilities as a leader. Dorma would soon become his most trusted ally as she realized his pure intentions and did all she could to help him rebuild Atlantis over the years.

    Along with Dorma, Namor would also rely heavily on two of his cousins Namora (Bridget Reagan) who had long been one of Namor's most trusted allies as well as his cousin Byrrah (Ian Anthony Dale). Unlike Namora and Dorma who were entirely loyal to Namor. Byrrah despite his friendly exterior harbored a grudge to his cousin as having long grown up in the kingdom and seen the way the world works. Byrrah felt that he would be the best to the rule the kingdom not that he would say it in front of any of his cousins. In this time Namor despite his reputation managed to form a slight amount of peace among the underwater kingdoms as he looked to combat any threats to their underwater kingdom. This included a tense, fragile relationship formed with the Skara Tribe in the murky depths. A relationship which would soon become fractured when Namor during one of his trips would be disgusted at the levels of slavery and abuse. Making a bold decision to abolish and outlaw slavery across the ocean. Namor's decision would send shockwaves throughout his kingdom.

    This causes friction among his own counsel as Byrrah and Commander Krang both saw this as heresy with the actions going against everything Atlantis stood for. This would bond the two together as they looked to conspire against Namor and take the throne. Despite their own concerns however both Namora and Dorma stood by Namor and his decisions even if there was outward consequences to his rash actions. This includes Attuma declaring war on Atlantis with the united front of the Skara tribe. It was in the scenes that followed in which we saw more of Attuma's character. A former slave turned war lord Attuma long believed that the best warriors were those who had to battle for everything in their lives as opposed to the entitled atlanteans. As Attuma told his people of a time that he was a mere child who witnessed his mother's death at the hands of his masters. Attuma continued by telling how great it felt the day he led a revolt and slayed those in charge. Which is the feeling of power they will attain here by killing the prince of Atlantis. Yet despite his rallying cries and passion for battle Attuma had a noted issue in his camp with his daughter Andromeda (Christina Ochoa). Despite being her father's best warrior by miles and desperately craving his approval. Andromeda would never be truly accepted by her father based on his disappointment at not having a male heir.

    It was in Attuma's hubris that he failed to witness just how far he'd pushed his daughter. As sick of looking to gain his acceptance Andromeda found herself slowly growing disgusted with her father's attitude as well as his cruelty. Torn by how she felt Andromeda would find herself slowly drawn to the side of her father's opponent Namor. This would even see her stand before Namor and Namora as she swore allegiance to him as her new prince and promised to help do all she can to defeat her father. Of course despite Namor's army growing stronger there would be some more dissension as Dorma was shown to be quite jealous/possessive when it came to Namor and was proven to be threatened by his and Namora's relationship. It was this dissension which was played upon by the tactile Byrrah who was able to gain information of some of Atlantis' prisoners and where they were held. Despite having a ton of options after consulting with Krang, Byrrah only elected to visit one prisoner. This being the longest held prisoner Tamara Rahn (Megan Boone). An alien who crash landed centuries ago, Tamara was mistakenly believed to be an enemy by ThaKorr who had her imprisoned.

    Angered at her time in captivity Tamara was easily manipulated by Byrrah who promised to free her and allow her revenge against the Atlanteans by killing it's prince Namor. While Byrrah handled this part Krang did something equally surprising as he snuck onto dry land in what was a surprising development to the series. As Krang in all of his time serving in the royal guard had at the behest of ThaKorr kept track on many threats to the kingdom. This included one human in particular by the name of Lemuel Dorcas (Christian Carmargo). While Krang granted Dorcas access to Atlantis and a means to survive in their kingdom he was joined by Byrrah who by this point was shown to be a truly compelling, fleshed out villain. In his scenes it was established that Byrrah had spent years watching the way the kingdom was run and how politics worked before slowly coming to crave the power of emperor with a willingness to manipulate all to get what he wants. This included Rahn who struck late at night as she attacked Namor holding him responsible for her fate.

    During the battle however both Rahn and Namor would learn some key truths. As Namor revealed that he had no idea of her imprisonment and had he had known he would have set her free. Rahn meanwhile had come to realize that she had been manipulated by Byrrah as it was only him and Krang who knew of her imprisonment. With Namor gaining a valuable ally as well as learning of the betrayal in his kingdom. He also readied for war as Byrrah conspired with Lemuel Dorcas and Krang to create several hybrids. With the marine biologist gifting them with Tiger Shark (JD Pardo), Piranha (Owen Teague) and Orka (Kevin Rankin). Of course while Krang would then come to find out that their plot had been exposed. It was Byrrah who made the decision to recruit Attuma to their side and forcefully take the crown. Sending Krang along with the Hybrids to the murky depths in order to appease Attuma. Byrrah then in conversation with Dorcas revealed a new plot of his own. Branding Krang's plot as primitive in siding with Attuma for the chance of maybe winning a battle against Namor and his forces. Byrrah instead plotted to not so much create but instead revive in order to defeat Namor.

    Meanwhile Krang would bring the three hybrids to Attuma who at first remained uncertain of Krang's motivations until Krang informed him of his daughter's betrayal. An enraged Attuma would wage war then and there on Atlantis. Battling alongside Krang, Orka, Tiger Shark and Piranha as well as his army. This rash behavior being a key trait of the character of Attuma who proved himself to be a more capable warrior than a leader of men. What followed was a wild battle throughout the sea as the Skara tribe battled the Atlantean army. During this battle it was shown that Dorcas' soldiers were more than formidable warriors as they defeated numerous members of the Atlantis army. This would include Piranha who shockingly was able to wound Namor with his teeth as they were sharp enough to penetrate his skin. However this would only serve to infuriate Dorma who attacked Piranha with a vengeance and badly wounded him which would cause Piranha would face the ultimate irony as his blood attracted a swarm of piranhas which would in turn devour him.

    Despite his army losing one of it's key members the Skara tribe continued their attack while the powerful Orka battled Tamara Rahn and Tiger Shark battled Namora. During the battle Rahn and Namora who had long been unsure of one another started working together and in doing so they were able to use the power of Orka against both him and Tiger Shark as they avoided an attack by him and used his momentum to send him careening into Tiger Shark with the two then hitting a series of rocks which caused a mini avalanche to fall onto them both. As this was going on we got cuts to inside of Atlantis where Byrrah and Lemuel Dorcas had managed to sneak in to begin Byrrah's secret plot. This plot was unveiled here as Byrrah having long grown up and studied the history of Atlantis would look to raise a creature known only as the Behemoth. Described as a last line of defense the Behemoth was created by Atlantis' greatest minds before being placed in a slumber by ThaKorr and it was here that Byrrah elected to use Dorcas to raise the Behemoth and wipe the playing field so that he could rebuild Atlantis to his own image.

    Of course true to form Byrrah ever the double crosser would do the same to Dorcas once he finished his work as once he had began the process to awake the behemoth. Byrrah would trigger a mini explosion in the lab causing Dorcas to be crushed by numerous pieces of machinery. Meanwhile back on the battle field two fights that had been teased all season would finally get their pay off as Namor battled the now named Warlord Krang while Attuma battled his daughter Andromeda. While Krang and Namor battled for supremacy it was the battle between Andromeda who had become one of the show's strongest character's and her father Attuma. After a long battle in which Attuma constantly derided his daughter and her choices eventually Andromeda got her vindication as she used techniques her father had begrudgingly taught her back as a soldier to prime effect before eventually cutting him down. In his dying breaths Attuma the proud warrior he was would finally acknowledge his daughter's strength before telling her he was proud of her.

    Krang meanwhile despite his villainy had shown himself to be a highly skilled warrior who was on par with Namor despite Namor's noted advantages. As the two would battle while the Skara tribe began to kneel after the fall of it's leader, everything came to a halt thanks to a loud, horrifying roar. This roar would be due to the awakening of the terrifying, monstrous behemoth. As a now maniacal Byrrah watched on with pride the creature began to attack all of those in it's path. With many in the underwater kingdom's fleeing at the rise of this creature. It was a select brave few who chose to battle the monster including Krang who would fully redeem himself as a character as he sacrificed himself to the creature in order to allow a family of atlanteans to escape. Ordering his soldiers to help other's flee Namor rashly elected to battle the Behemoth himself through the city of Atlantis. Despite some misgivings from those closest to him Namor remained convinced that his actions before had been rash and put others in danger. But that now he would not risk anyone else's life. With that Andomeda, Namora and Rahn would then begin helping evacuate the city while Namor drew the attention of the Behemoth.

    With the Behemoth in hot pursuit Namor tried several techniques to beat it which included binding it in Atlantis' iron gates. However this would prove ineffective and only stall the creature. Before Namor could attack the momentarily trapped creature he was stabbed from behind with a dagger by Byrrah. Delighting in what he perceived to be the death of his cousin Byrrah boasted of how the throne would be his Byrrah's boasting would soon be cut short as Namor stabbed him in the foot pinning him to the ground while the Behemoth broke free from the gates. Trapped down to the ground all Byrrah can do is let out a scream as he is stomped on by the Behemoth. Despite being weakened Namor still had enough left in him to continue to draw the attention of the Behemoth. With only one option left Namor took a risky gambit in drawing The Behemoth towards the murky depths and near one of the darker parts of the ocean. It was here that the Behemoth would step onto the quagmire of doom a known bottomless pit of quicksand. Slowly as Namor clung onto some rocks valiantly in what was his last bit of strength, The behemoth would slowly be pulled into the pit disappearing completely from sight.

    Tragically it then appeared that Namor would also fall into the pit when he was saved at the last minute by Tamara Rahn and Namor who had seen where Namor was taking the Behemoth and rushed to assist. Despite passing out from his injuries Namor would awake to find himself a hero among his people and the underwater kingdoms for having saved them from the feared creature. In a surprising announcement however Namor would announce that he was in fact abdicating the crowd. Acknowledging that he wasn't ready to be the king and that there was much more for him to learn. Namor elected to give to the crowd to his cousin Namora much to the shock of many and the dismay of Dorma as the series came to an end. What would then follow after an interesting miniseries packed full of twists, turns, complex characters and so on would be an interesting tease for the story of Namor as the Sub-Mariner would say his farewells for now to his kingdom before deciding to step onto dry land for the first time in his life and explore the world above the sea!

    Re: Marvel

    Spiderman Season 5

    Part I: When animals attack!

    It has to be said that out of all the shows produced so far in the Fox Marvel universe. The flagship and most popular to this very day is their interpretation of Peter Parker/Spiderman (Tyler Posey). Now entering it's fifth season the story continued to grow from strength to strength. This season similar to the last season would be split into chapters and would focus very much on separate stories albeit with one joining narrative. Because this season not only saw Peter Parker very much portray the character we all know and love after a very detestable side was shown in the previous season. But this season would not only do a tremendous job of reforming his character and redeeming the Peter Parker we all knew and came to love. While also showing just how much the symbiote had altered his relationships and how both he and Spiderman were perceived by many including the media. As despite coherent proof of Eddie Brock (Ryan Kwanten) being Venom, J Jonah Jameson (John C McGinley) and his hatred for the spider would only grow.

    With this season showing very much a more upbeat standpoint we would also see prominent focus on Peter's relationship with Mary Jane (Jane Levy). Mary Jane who had proven to be a strong addition to the series. As despite being shown to be quite fiery at points, Mary Jane was a fun character who totally supported Peter in his life as Spiderman. Meanwhile in her own life Mary Jane had began modelling before receiving offers for acting work. Which would slowly put her in the public eye and tie into a story of her own as she began being stalked by ex boyfriend Morris Bench (Chris Carmack). Long believed to have been dead Bench was in fact well alive and harboring some secrets which would come to light as the season continued. But what became clear even while he kept a distance was that Bench wasn't happy with Mary Jane being in another relationship and couldn't stand the attention she was getting from fans.

    As this season focused on many of Peter's relationships special mention must be made of Aunt May (Glenn Close). While primarily just an advice giver and so on in the previous seasons. We saw a lot more of her especially in the early part of this season. As while still a strong, independent female character it was mentioned that between seasons she had battled an illness which had seen her take a brief respite in a nursing home until she fully recovered. During her stay May would meet Nathan Lubensky (Gary Sturm). While the two had a rough start thanks to a heated argument over something trivial. It was clear there was a spark between the two seniors who would soon become a couple with May regularly visiting him at the home once she had gone back home. With this season focusing on the personal lives and giving more depth to many of the side characters. Another prominent character who received a ton of focus was that of Curt Connors (Noah Wyle). A long time mentor and former teacher of Peter Parker. Curt had long been in many ways a father figure to peter giving him advice while also keeping on at him when he felt he was not living up to his potential.

    With Curt's backstory as a former military medic established in a previous season. What was firmly on display here was Curt's growing desperation to attempt to regrow his lost limb. Looking to help fellow sufferers worldwide Connors' experiments as part of his work at Oscorp would see him use reptilian DNA in a serum. One which would have horrendous effects as he would soon become the horrifying creature known as the Lizard. But he wasn't the only former teacher of Peter Parker given some focus this season. As a man known as Miles Warren (Kevin Bacon) was focused on. When this season was announced many were interested at the fact that Gwen Stacy (Dianna Agron) was rumored to be making an appearance or two. This was set in a series of small flash backs as it was revealed that Miles Warren in many ways was a mentor of sorts to Gwen when he was her teacher. However it was revealed that the real reason for his mentorship was that he was in fact secretly obsessed with Gwen Stacy. This would lead to him harboring resentment for Peter Parker and later on Spiderman who he blamed for her death.

    Meanwhile a face from the past would reappear briefly for a couple of scenes as Liz Allan (Britt Robertson) would return. Unlike the at times snobbish, catty character we saw in the early seasons. This Liz had grown up and had fully immersed herself in the working world as a lawyer. However her reunion with Peter would not be down to legal fees. Instead she would meet with Peter out of desperation hoping that he could reach out to Spiderman. Stating she knows he is the only person able to get photos of the Spider which means he must have a means of contact with him. A distraught Liz would instead inform Peter that she was concerned about the well being of her half brother Mark Raxton (Mat Vairo). Revealing that he had been working under Spencer Smythe (Jonathan Pryce) on a project. Liz stated that he had grown desperate after Smythe had coldly fired him. During this meeting as well it was also revealed that Flash Thompson (Colton Haynes) had lost both of his legs during the war and that because of his drinking both he and Liz had split up. Unknown to Liz while this meeting was taking place, Mark had chosen to take actions in his own hands. This would see him break into the lab at Oscorp where he worked under Smythe only to be confronted by Spencer and his son Alistair (Michael Pitt).

    During the confrontation between Mark and Spencer however, tragedy would strike. As Mark would fall into a vat of a experimental metal alloy he had personally been working on. This would turn him into Molten Man who we would get our first look at several scenes later. Because while the Smythes would believe that Mark was dead and everything was settled. It would be revealed that after his fall Raxton would fall through several drainage pipes and wash out on the outskirts of the city before waking up and realizing that his skin was now golden. Fearful for his life Raxton would run into the city as he looked for a hospital only to find that with this change he had also been given powers. This would start a mini crime spree from Mark who looked desperately for a cure for his condition whilst also to make a financial game. However after a first brief confrontation with Spiderman, Raxon would desperately seek out Liz and with the police after him. Mark would take her hostage in their family home. Despite Liz's pleas Mark was unwilling to turn himself in as instead of wanting to be locked up he wanted to be free and cured of what he deemed a curse.

    What followed would be an entertaining series of scenes as Spiderman met with detectives Jean Dewolff (Michelle Borth) as well as Stanley Carter (Justin Theroux). While Dewolff for her part very much seemed to be a straight arrow who actually would come to appreciate the efforts of Spiderman. Whereas Carter, a devout religious man who was only recently returning to the force following the death of his ex partner would remain hesitant of Spiderman and his efforts. A fight between Spiderman and Molten Man would then go on with Molten Man continuing to establish his desperation as well as his want for revenge against the Smythes. In a horrifying display Molten Man's skin would begin to consume itself and he would continue giving off immense heat making him a danger to anyone in a close vicinity including Liz. Taking the fight into the backyard Spiderman would end the battle by sending Molten Man toppling into the swimming pool. With the water cooling him down and extinguishing his flames. Mark would then be arrested and sent off to a new SHIELD facility known as the Vault.

    After a farewell with Liz Allan who was a welcome addition to the Molten Man story. Peter Parker would find himself equally interested in the work being undertaken by Spencer Smythe and his son. All the while J Jonah Jameson would in secret begin to finance Smythe's latest project. However Peter's attention would soon be focused elsewhere as one day at the bugle during a company wide meeting. Reporter Ned Leeds (Simon Quartermain) would confirm that he is chasing a story about a reptile. These sightings appeared to trigger a response from Jameson who asked for Parker to take a photo of the creature and see what he could find. Extra note has to be made here of the arrival of Ned Leeds who was shown to be a good man and a great addition to the bugle staff thanks to his relationships with Robbie Robertson (Omar Epps) and his burgeoning relationship with Betty Brandt (Alexis Bledel). Talking with Ned Leeds, Peter was able to grasp a base location for all the sightings.

    Using this information and taking his camera with him as he was dressed as Spiderman. Peter would head down to the sewers and would find himself confronted by the Lizard. In a short fight Spiderman would nearly be killed by the monstrous Lizard before narrowly escaping with his life. Injured Peter would be checked on by a concerned Mary Jane while it was discovered that despite his arm being restored, Curt Connors entire life had been thrown off balance because of his transformations. This was shown by not only his increase in drinking but also by the fractured relationships he now had with his wife Martha (Paula Malcomson) and son Billy (Zackary Arthur). Curt having become aware of the monster inside and what he was becoming made the tough decision to push his family away. This decision while Curt clearly was making it for a good reason, clearly affected him as he continued on his downward spiral. Not helping at all was that the Lizard itself was a constant presence in Curt's life almost as a Jekyll and Hyde like character.

    Drawing comparisons to Curt and his transformation would be Miles Warren. In a stark contrast to Curt who gained his powers by accident. Miles a biologist in his own right is revealed to be fully aware of Curt and his transformations into the Lizard. This causes Miles to reach out to Curt and offer to help him. In truth however Miles was out to help himself and would a serum of his own creation thanks to the information he gathered to become the Jackal. With the help of a loyal lab assistant Anthony Serba (Daniel Logan) before taking the formula to turn him into the hybrid creature known as the Jackal. Wanting to cover his tracks and showing a vicious streak Warren murdered Serba before he began to plot his revenge against Spiderman. This would include Miles stalking Peter Parker who by this time was known as the only man to capture Spiderman on film. While also manipulating The Lizard into believing that they shared the same goals to change the world but in order to do so they would have to kill the Spiderman. This would lead to Miles Warren stalking Peter Parker as his obsession and insanity grew. That would be until one night in which Miles plotted to bait Spiderman he would discover that Peter was in fact Spiderman as he saw him leaving the scene of a battle with the Lizard.

    With the knowledge that Curt would not look to actively engage Peter Parker. Miles began to plot against his ally at the moment as well. With the plan to strike during a press conference held by J.Jonah Jameson. In the run up to the conference in which Jonah would announce that he would be funding several projects by Spencer Smythe. Jean DeWolff would reach out to Spiderman. DeWolff appeared concerned that there was a serial killer loose in the city. One that would leave bible quotes at all his killings. Spiderman would promise to look out for it before she promised to keep him updated as well. This would show Jean to be a valuable future ally for Peter Parker/Spiderman. With that it would be time for the press conference in which Peter was taking photos. Meanwhile Mary Jane would find herself in a 'chance' meeting with Morris Bench. Morris would tell Mary a story about how he washed ashore with little memory of himself or where he was from and has only just returned home. Meanwhile Peter would be busy taking photos when The Lizard would attack once more.

    As Peter rushed to change into his Spiderman costume, The Lizard and the Jackal would attack the press conference. During this attack several characters got to show their true natures as while Jonah and Ned Leeds proved themselves to be heroes in helping others escape. Morris Bench only focused on saving Mary Jane and totally ignored cries for help. Meanwhile Spencer Smythe fled in a limo leaving his son Alistair out there to fend for himself. It was during this attack that tragically Nathan Lubensky suffered a fatal heart attack while looking to protect May from the Lizard. The death of Nathan clearly began to resonate with Curt inside as he battled for control with the creature. Arriving on the scene as J.Jonah helped a grieving Aunt May to safety Spiderman found himself at the mercy of both these powered villains. It wouldn't take long either for him to be badly beaten at the hands of the Lizard or the Jackal but clearly the Lizard was still having it's issues with control. That would be until The Jackal crouched down besides Peter and began blaming him for all of this. Revealing how all of this was about Gwen the deranged Jackal prepared to deal a finishing blow when he was attacked by the Lizard.

    Now fully under the control of Curt Connors albeit temporarily the Lizard in what was a delightful scene brutally beat down the disdainable Miles Warren who had at this point been shown to be one of the most detestable villains yet to be produced in the Fox Marvel Verse. With Warren beaten the Lizard would revert back to Curt Connors who fell to his knees and began sobbing at the damage he'd done. Rising to his feet Spiderman would crouch down besides Curt who stated that all he ever wanted to do was help people but instead he was blinded by the monster he had become in order to do so. With that the first 6 episodes of this 18 episode Spiderman series would culminate with two last scenes. One would focus on Aunt May and Peter Parker visiting Curt Connors at The Vault. Curt wanting to face Aunt May, apologized to her for her loss. In a show of strength Aunt May stated that it was her belief that it wasn't up to us to condemn people for their actions. Instead it was up to us to forgive those who truly sought forgiveness. With that Aunt May much to the relief of Connors would accept his apology before leaving the room. This would leave Peter and his former teacher/mentor. With a weak smile Curt stated that Miles has since been lobotomized and as far as he sees it. Anything the Lizard may have heard in regards to Peter's identity, Curt Connors did not hear.

    As Peter left the room Curt took one last chance to tell Peter that he was truly proud of the man he'd become and how he was using his gifts. The other scene on the other hand focused on a surprising turn as throughout the season Stanley Carter was shown to be an odd if not strange individual. The deeply religious, clearly grieving for his former partner officer was joined by Jean DeWolff in his apartment as it was revealed the two had briefly had a fling in the past. For her part Jean was concerned as she opened the door to his apartment and found various empty bottles of both booze and pills on the floor. However the most horrifying discovery would be a bible in which the verses of the bible left at the crimes of the criminal known as the Sin Eater were highlighted. Unfortunately for Jean on this discovery she would be thrown to the floor and strangled to death by the clearly psychotic Stanley Carter who revealed himself as the Sin Eater.

    Part II: The Spider Slayers

    The second part of Spiderman Series Five would open with a rather somber affair. The discovery of the body of Jean Wolff in a back alleyway with several bible verses found nearby. Leading the investigation on the case would be Stanley Carter. Although he may have seemed OK to those who were unsuspecting of him. Carter was truly growing more delusional as it was revealed that he had in fact stolen and kept Jean's police badge after killing her. However it would be during the next Sin Eater murder that he would end up truly in the cross hairs of Spiderman. As following a lengthy binge of both drugs and alcohol Stanley would target Horace Rosenthal (Jay Karnes). Rosenthal was a judge who the Sin Eater deemed to be too lenient on criminals. Executing the judge in public with the blast of a shotgun. The Sin Eater would begin to flee when he found himself confronted by Spiderman. What followed was a short battle with the chemical imbalance in Stanley making him able to withstand some heavy shots from Spiderman. Fighting recklessly Stanley fired off his gun in public once more hitting an innocent bystander. This would distract Spiderman and allow the Sin Eater to begin to make an escape but not before Spiderman would see that he was in fact in possession of Jean's badge.

    As the news of the Sin Eater continued to spread out there. It only intensified the rage felt by The Smythe family and Jonah towards Spiderman. In fact in several Daily Bugle articles Jonah would accuse the Spiderman of working with the Sin Eater much to Peter and many of his staff's chagrin. With these reports hitting the streets Jonah would continue his funding of Spencer Smythe's work. This work would be to finally finish their project in developing the Spider Slayers. These robots were at first supposed to be created for the capture of Spiderman but Spencer now having played on Jonah's anger. Was able to change the design of the slayers to now kill Spiderman. But as their work continued Spencer was revealed to be hiding a dark secret. One only his son Alistair would be aware of and that is that due to his exposure to radioactive materials in the creation of these robots. Spencer was in fact slowly dying at the hands of his life's work.

    During his next attack the Sin Eater clearly growing more unstable would shoot a priest in a church for in his words absolving the wicked of their sins. But it was this attack that would soon lead to his down fall as during the investigation Stanley Carter was shown to be acting erratically but it was during his discussion with Spiderman that things took an interesting turn. As Stanley would not only spot a Daily Bugle article on the Sin Eater but he'd also leave his badge at the scene. On closer inspection however Spiderman would find that this badge in fact belonged to Jean DeWolff. With this clue pointing him towards Carter as the Sin Eater, Peter would begin to search out the detective who appeared to go underground following that encounter. The reason for this was his next attack which would be his boldest yet as The Sin Eater would attack the offices of the Daily Bugle. Despite his intended target J Jonah Jameson not being present. The Sin Eater would point his gun around threatening the likes of Ned Leeds, Peter Parker, Robbie Robertson and Betty Brandt until Robbie would tackle the Sin Eater. While Ned Leeds helped many of the Bugle escape The Sin Eater would shove Robbie to the ground only to be hit over the head with a type writer by Peter Parker knocking him unconscious. On being unmasked the Sin Eater would be exposed as Stanley Carter who would soon be locked up for his crimes.

    Meanwhile with a lot of his attention focused on avenging his friend. Peter Parker had failed to notice that lately Mary Jane had been distracted. This was down to what was now several encounters with Morris Bench. As While Morris was portraying these encounters as random and by chance. The truth was he was stalking Mary Jane and following her everywhere she went as he hoped to win her back. Adding to Peter's worries would be a new criminal who had arrived on the scene. A bank robber known as Mysterio (Zachary Quinto) would begin pulling off heists with almost mystical means. These means would in fact at points force some of the victims in his crimes to confront their greatest fears or horrors which would scar them for life. However it would be in his first collision with Spiderman that we got part of the truth behind how Mysterio was pulling this off. Using special effects as well as a gas designed to cause hallucinations. Mysterio was able to temporarily frame Spiderman for the robbery of the bank.

    This attempt to frame Spiderman would force Spencer Smythe to send out the mark 1 variation of his Spider Slayer. Controlled by remote control by J Jonah Jameson in Smythe's lab the robot would stalk Spiderman as he looked to find Mysterio. Going after Spiderman the slayer was impervious to his webbing and quickly would capture Spiderman only for him to exploit a design flaw as he removed the circuit board and pulled out it's wires shutting the machine down completely. This would set off the first of several heated arguments between Spencer and Jonah with a desperate Spencer promising Jonah that his next marks would be more successful and that this was trial and error. This would be shown in Spencer's mark 2 which was designed to look more human than the first. Plus with several upgrades to it's weaponry. This time however Spencer opted to control it as he released the Spider Slayer onto the streets. During this battle with Spiderman, The Spider Slayer came very close to killing it's intended target.

    That would be until Spiderman by chance was sent into the Oscorp building because the robot on following it, self destructed in a fail safe put in by Alistair Smythe. This failing would send Spencer Smythe over the edge especially as J Jonah Jameson declared he would no longer be funding this project due to the public risk of Smythe's last slayer. Later confronting his son over his fail safe Spencer Smythe's rage and sickness would be blamed on his research by his son. Lashing out in anger Smythe angrily shoved Alistair down a flight of stairs. It would later be revealed that Alistair Smythe because of this fall was unable to walk again and confined to a wheelchair. As Spencer Smythe's health continued to deteriorate he threw himself into his next Spider Slayer. Meanwhile Peter Parker despite wanting to look into the robots targeting him would find some issues in his life which need repairing first. Because it was after a double date in which Peter and Mary Jane were joined by Ned Leeds and Betty Brandt that Peter would learn of the reappearance of Morris Bench in Mary Jane's life.

    While Morris came off as well meaning in public it was clear he had his own agenda. This agenda was to take Mary Jane back from Peter by any means necessary. All the while Morris would play it nice in front of Mary Jane. Yet in private when confronted by Peter, Morris showed his true colors as he delighted in mocking Peter claiming that Mary Jane was always his. But as Peter snapped and threw a punch at him he was stunned when Morris Bench's face turned into water and his hand traveled right through the liquid. Stepping back a stunned Peter would then be waylaid with a punch by Bench. Later on when confronted by Peter, Mary Jane despite their relationship being solid would remain conflicted in regards to her feelings towards Bench. This would be until Morris one night looked to make a move only for MJ to reject him and in turn cause Morris to grow angry. As Morris lost his temper Mary Jane began to remember their past life and how much his temper scared her. This was a turning point for Mary Jane as she realized that Morris was not the man she remembered him to be. In retaliation for his rejection Morris Bench would later appear at Mary Jane's home and kidnap her.

    Looking to win her back still. Morris told her of the night he went missing. Revealing how he fell overboard his cargo ship during a storm. Morris would describe in depth his terror as he sank to the bottom of the darkest ocean. With the weight of the water crushing him and his lungs filling with no air to breathe. Morris stated that what saved him was the fact that a powerful generator was being tested nearby in the ocean and how it's radiation changed him into the man of water he is now. Despite Mary Jane giving him sympathy for what he went through she would not be with him the way he wanted. This would cause Morris to lash out at the one she cared about most Peter Parker. Attacking Peter in the night as he was out searching for Mary Jane. Morris Bench used the sewers to reappear and attack Peter. As Peter avoided one of his attacks and climbed up a wall Bench would discover that Peter Parker was in fact Spiderman. Much to his enjoyment Bench continued to attack Peter as he taunted him that he had Mary Jane hostage. However as Bench continued to attack his anger at being rejected by the one he once loved made him take his eye off the fact that he had gone too far away from a place without water to re hydrate him. Stuck on a rooftop Bench would slowly begin to evaporate but in his last act would give Peter the location of Mary Jane so he could save her.

    A week would pass and as Spiderman was on the lookout once more for the robber known as Mysterio he would find himself ensnared by a web of the latest and biggest Spider Slayer. Awakening in Spencer Smythe's lab Spiderman would find himself handcuffed to none other than J Jonah Jameson. Despite his hatred for the wall crawler Jameson's focus was fully on Spencer Smythe in front of them. Spencer having accepted his fate that he was dying put the blame on his death on both Spiderman and Jonah which is why in his last act he had brought them here to die with him. In his last few breaths the weak Spencer would reveal that on his death a countdown would be activated for a bomb which would explode in exactly 24 hours killing both Spiderman and Jameson. With that Spencer would die convinced that he had killed both men. It was during this time that we finally got an explanation of sorts for Jonah's hatred of Spiderman. As Jonah revealed that he has long grown up with heroes or people that claimed to be who wore their masks to cover their misdeeds. This included his step father David who to the outside world was a war hero but behind closed doors he was a monster. With that Jonah looked to break the handcuffs in order to break free. But in order to do so he'd have to work with Spiderman.

    Together this unlikely duo would manage to free themselves but then faced the predicament of what to do with the bomb. Knowing they couldn't just run and leave it Spiderman would look to defuse it. Jonah for his part would constantly question Spiderman and his decisions until shockingly Spiderman unmasked towards Jonah revealing just who he was to the Daily Bugle head. Shocked that Peter was in fact Spiderman, Jonah complied with his wishes and slowly the two managed to use the labs resources to freeze the bomb and disable it completely. With that Jonah in a surprising act shook hands with Peter Parker before calling this his mess to deal with. As Peter would escape the lab Jonah would call the police to confess his crimes. As news began to spread of J Jonah Jameson's involvement with Spencer Smythe and the Spider Slayers. Peter would continue his work as Spiderman until the final episode of the second chapter. This episode known only as 'Rise of Mysterio' would focus heavily on a comic storyline in which Mysterio looked to drive Spiderman mad.

    Under the influence of Mysterio's gases Spiderman wouldn't know what was real or fake. As he would see a variety of other lives he could have lived had he not have been Spiderman. This includes being married to Gwen Stacy as well as Uncle Ben still being alive plus his friend Harry still being in his life. All the while these scenes would be cut in between Spiderman sitting in front of a doctor called Ludwig Rinehart. Rinehart would be encouraging Spiderman to let go and unmask. But in a surprising moment during all these flashes Peter would catch a glimpse of his life now. His relationship with Mary Jane plus his work as a hero and this would cause him to break the spell he was under from Mysterio. Coming to Spiderman would grab hold of the bewildered Mysterio and easily defeat him in combat before unmasking him as former failed actor Quentin Beck. After unmasking Mysterio, Spiderman would leave him for the police to come arrest him as the second part of the season came to an end.

    Part III: The Symbiote Saga ~ Part 2

    As the third part of this season opened it appeared that we had a brief time jump between the second part of the season and this. With over a month passing we'd see just how life had moved on for Peter Parker as well as many others in the Spiderman story. This would include the Daily Bugle which was now led by Robbie Robertson while J Jonah Jameson was on trial for his involvement with Spencer Smythe. Ned Leeds and Betty Brandt would still be going strong with Ned currently chasing his latest story of what was being described as the carnage killings. This was down to the fact that at every crime scene the killer would write the name Carnage in his own blood with the DNA revealing this to be the works of one Cletus Kasady (Matthew Lillard). The news of Kasady being on the loose would garner the attention of many none more so than Eddie Brock (Ryan Kwanten) who had been attempting to fly under the radar following his escape from prison.

    Remembering his time in jail and the torment he suffered at the hands of Cletus would cause Eddie Brock to head back into the city and look for revenge against his former cell mate. However as these killings grew more violent people began to wonder if this really was the work of Kasady as a creature was spotted at the scene of one of the murders. This news would not only make Spiderman suspect this was the work of a symbiote by the description of the creature but also force a desperate Eddie Brock to reach out to Peter Parker. Stating that he knows Peter has no reason to trust him but that Eddie legitimately has not been involved in this. Admitting that Cletus must have escaped during his break out Eddie states that he feels responsible for the deaths and wants to bring Kasady down before he kills anyone else. Understandably however based on their history at this moment Peter is quick to refute any team up between the two. Knowing Peter doesn't trust him Brock again tries to reason with him stating that if he wanted Peter dead now he would be already.

    However Peter would soon unfortunately find that he was in over his head as he would confront Cletus at the scene of his next killing. As it was here we would see the horrifying creature that he could become known as Carnage. It was during this battle that we would see that Carnage was a lot more violent, powerful and deadlier than Venom. Over matched by Carnage, Spiderman would only narrowly escape with his life thanks to the involvement of Venom. Out numbered Carnage would flee as both Spiderman and Venom realized the severity of their situation and that they would finally agree to put their differences aside and work together to stop Carnage. Over the course of this part of the season a fascinating dynamic would form between Eddie Brock and Peter Parker. As while the two men were not friends by any means it appeared that there was some slight trust if not respect formed. Especially when Brock would witness Spiderman rescue a young girl later on from Carnage's clutches.

    Being a former reporter himself Eddie Brock was able to reach out on some old sources to find out what information he could about Cletus Kasady/Carnage. During his research Eddie was able to find some redacted records of Cletus from his childhood. These include frequent abuse both physically and sexually from his father before later being believed to have murdered his own grand mother. It is also revealed that Cletus was nearly killed by his own mother who claimed that her son had tried to kill her before she was in fact killed by her husband. With his father thrown in jail Cletus would then be sent to St.Estes home for boys where his disturbed ways continued. This included the belief that he killed one of the administrators as well as him reportedly burning down the orphanage. A psych report from a doctor in these files indicated that Cletus considered the law just a set of words and that you could do anything you wanted if you had the guts to go through with it. Troubled by what they had heard and with the knowledge that no one was safe as long as he was out there Peter and Eddie fully got on the same page as they agreed to stop Carnage.

    Meanwhile having discovered that he not only had to contend with the Spider but also his 'Father' Venom. Cletus Kasady was shown to have a much more harmonious relationship with his symbiote as the two were fully devoted to killing. But more frightening was the intelligence Cletus showed because it was revealed that on his escape of the prison after boding with his symbiote that Cletus had in fact raided the cell of Eddie Brock. It would be here that Cletus found a weakness to draw out Eddie. A photo of his ex wife Ann Weying (Kat Graham). Using this knowledge Cletus set out to find and capture Ann in an effort to use her as bait for Eddie. Unaware of Cletus and his plans Eddie Brock looked to gain some insight into Cletus by reaching out to Dr.Ashley Kafka (Felicia Day). A professional criminal psychologist who previously treated both Eddie and Cletus during their time at Ravencroft. Eddie always held Ashley in high esteem as in his words she stood by him and looked beyond the symbiote as opposed to going for a quick fix and lobotomizing him.

    While Ashley at first was hesitant in helping a wanted fugitive, she was quick to come around not just in order to help Spiderman but also because she understood the threat that Cletus Kasady presented to the world. As she helped Eddie and Peter understand just what they were dealing with. Revealing how she wasn't one for a quick fix and would rather understand those individuals she assessed so she could treat them effectively. Ashley commented how she spent numerous hours with Cletus and for a long time had to deal with lie after lie coming out of his mouth. That'd be until they would get talking on his thoughts about laws and some of his past crimes. It was then that Ashley revealed that Cletus had a weird connection to his former orphanage and it is her belief that he would be using that place as a hideout or would at least keep on visiting even now. However before Ashley could reveal more they were interrupted by a phone call Eddie Brock had taken. This would be from a terrified Ann Weying who revealed that Carnage had in fact captured her and kept her hostage at the orphanage.

    Despite Kafka's warnings about this being a trap as it was Kasady's turf, both Spiderman and Venom would rush to the scene. On arriving to the charred, derelict not too mention dark building. Both Spiderman and Venom entered in what was clearly set up to be a tense, almost like horror like scene set with many jump scares. As the two walked through this building they would soon find themselves split up thanks to Eddie hearing the screams of Ann and rushing off in one direction. As Peter chased after him to follow a door would close behind Eddie separating them. While Eddie would soon surprisingly find himself reunited with the terrified Ann. Spiderman on the other hand found himself being hunted by Carnage. What would follow was a came of cat and mouse as Spiderman knowing he was out matched by the brutal creature would have to keep on moving. Meanwhile in what was an emotional reunion Eddie Brock looked to rescue Ann. As Eddie apologized to her for all the hurt he caused her and told her that he was a new man now. Looking to help her make her escape what followed was a tense moment as Eddie became aware of what he'd left Spiderman to deal with yet looked to make his exit with Ann.

    As they reached the door of the orphanage to make their exit, Eddie would stop on hearing a loud crash and the insane, haunting laugh of Kasady. It would be then that Eddie looked back to the building and told Ann to call for help before he rushed back into the building reverting to Venom. Once he found the room in which Kasady was in he would see a brutally beaten Spiderman laying on the floor as Kasady stood over him. Charging at Kasady, It would be Venom now who would engage Carnage in a fight but again it would be proven that Carnage was a lot more powerful then Venom and he began to dish out a brutal beating. Spiderman slowly looked to enter the fray and assist Venom but again he was easily knocked down by Kasady who appeared to be delighting in the fight. Mocking the two for thinking they could beat him, Kasady delighted at the prospect of killing them both. That would be until Spiderman revealed that they were not here to beat Carnage but more to keep him occupied. Carnage would then turn to the door of the room where Dr.Kafka was standing by with a sonic weapon. The weapon would hit Kasady at full blast while Spiderman surprisingly pulled Venom to safety.

    Screaming in agony, the symbiote and Cletus battled to stay together but slowly much to Cletus' despair the sybmiote would be destroyed. This would allow Spiderman to knock out and web up Kasady for the police to capture. Later that evening after Cletus was transported back to Ravencroft under the supervision of Dr.Kafka. Peter Parker would meet with Eddie Brock. Both men would express their surprise at the other for saving their lives. It was then both men appeared to make some peace as Eddie admitted he thought about leaving him but truthfully this experience made him realize that he spent all this time blaming Peter/Spiderman. Yet in truth he's the one who made bad decisions and that now he has to atone for them. Eddie then brought up the future and asked what now as in the distance Ann Weying was noticeably standing by. The two would then make a deal in which if Eddie Brock/Venom left New York as Spiderman saw it there was no point in chasing him. With that Eddie Brock would climb into a car with Ann and drive away.

    Unfortunately while a key chapter in Peter's life began to close it seemed a new one would open almost immediately. As Peter was quickly joined by a mysterious man who introduced himself as Ezekiel (Hakeem Kae Kazim). Ezekiel would quickly warn Spiderman of a great danger coming to the city before telling him that he needed to be ready before getting in touch with him to fight the darkness. This would bring an end to the 5th season of Spiderman but as always the season would end with a couple of post credit scenes to set things up for the future. The first would focus on Alistair Smythe building his own versions of the Spider Slayer before moving on to Ezekiel returning to a secret location. It would be hear that he was joined by a mysterious woman known as Cindy Moon (Katie Chang) as the two spoke of Peter's potential. The final scene would show Ned Leeds groggily waking up in a trashed building while next to him would be a haunting golbin mask!

While training with Dustin, Logan would meet a woman known as Itsu and the two would form a close bond. Playing Itsu will be Westworld actress Kiki Sukezane.

    Clare Kramer as Elizabeth Howlett - Casper Van Dien as John Howlett - Kim Coates as Thomas Logan
    With this being an origin story of sorts. It makes sense to tell the story of how Logan came into the world. This is why also appearing in the story are his parents John and Elizabeth Howlett. Described as a wealthy, loving couple it is believed there is a dark secret the duo are keeping from their son. One which involves surly grounds keeper Thomas Logan. Playing the roles of Elizabeth, John and Thomas are Buffy actress Clare Kramer, starship troopers actor Casper Van Dien and Sons of Anarchy actor Kim Coates.

    Haley Lu Richardson as Rose - Michael Trevino as Dog
    Another two key parts of Logan's childhood are that of his two childhood friends Rose and Dog. While Rose in many ways may be considered his first love. Logan's friendship with Dog is known to at points be quite adversarial. Adding to this is the fact that Dog is the son of Thomas Logan. Playing Rose is Split actress Haley Lu Richardson while playing Dog is Vampire Diaries actor Michael Trevino.

    Arthur Darvill as Truett Hudson
    Rounding out the characters is the last surviving member of the weapon plus scientists. Truett Hudson very much likens himself to Dr.Frankenstein as he is now terrified of the monsters he created in the past. Knowing Wolverine to be out there looking into his past a panicked Truett starts his work again as he looks to kill his former creation. Playing Truett will be Legends of Tomorrow actor Arthur Darvill

    The Hulk ~ Season 2 ~ Follow the Leader!

    Having had it's first season which was highly received thanks to the story as well as the hard work of it's actors. The second season of Fox Marvel The Hulk was quite possibly one of the most anticipated series that it had put out yet. This series was set exactly a month after the first season and opened with a conversation between one of the strongest characters in the series General Ross (Ted Levine) and a colleague of his General Ryker (Matt Damon). During this conversation it became clear that this wasn't an official conversation between the two but more a showcase of just how desperate Thaddeus Ross had become. Mentioning how the creation of the Hulk and Bruce Banner's actions had ruined his life. Ross' hatred for Banner (Hugh Dancy) was displayed as he blamed him for not only the loss of relationship with his daughter Betty (Nikki Reed) but also for his loss of post not to mention the ruination of his reputation. This in many ways established this season that General Ross very much would be the leading antagonist once again for the Hulk. After listening in General Ryker would promise to help Ross take down the Hulk and when the time comes eliminate Banner. It would be then that Ryker introduced Ross to his leading scientist on the matter Geoffrey Crawford (James Frain). A former colleague and schoolmate of Banner, Crawford is shown to be quite dismissive of Banner and promises to help them not only defeat the Hulk but also kill Banner.

    Of course it wasn't just General Ross who had changed following his battle with the Hulk. Another individual who had evolved as a character and definitely for the better was Emil Blonsky (David Lyons). Formerly just a stoic soldier packed full of rage, Blonsky when he got to go off books and involved with a mercenary unit under Ross' orders felt like a new man. As a man who had found his calling and truly found an enjoyment for violence. Adding to this was his covert experimentation ordered by Ross with the help of Ryker and Crawford. These drugs and compounds that were injected into Blonsky while they sharpened his reflexes and gave him enhanced strength as well as healing factor. In turn they also amplified certain characteristics including aggression which was on display in several small scenes which would highlight Blonsky beating and torturing his wife Nadia (Julia Jones). Along with both Blonsky and Ross there was one other man whose life was altered due to the Hulk. That being Samuel Sterns (Johnny Lee Miller). The former warehouse operative at one of the General's bases would find himself growing in intelligence. Absorbing all the knowledge he could the former simple minded laborer would study like a man possessed and it was in his studies that not only would he continue to be altered by chemical exposure but also grow obsessed with the Hulk.

    While the early few scenes gave us a look at what was going on with this season's primary antagonists. It also provided us some insight in regards to Bruce Banner/The Hulk. As while the relationship with the two may not be as bad as it once was. Bruce still eagerly looked for ways to control the Hulk if not cure himself of his condition. This would include Bruce with the aid of Betty Ross reaching out to two former colleagues of hers Amadeus Cho (Osric Chau) and Leonard Skivorski (Jimmi Simpson). Meanwhile Ross' former operations would now be under the watchful eye of both Cary St Lawrence (Gemma Whelan) and Clay Quartermain (Charles Mesure). While both were more sympathetic to Bruce's plight as the Hulk. They both wanted to bring him in more down to the threat of public safety than anything else. Looking also to wipe the slate clean and potentially get a lead to Banner's whereabouts Cary offered longtime Banner ally Rick Jones (Amadeus Serrafini) a job. This would see Rick begin military training while Cary hoped that Rick would eventually see the threat of the Hulk and give up any information he could.

    Unfortunately Jones despite proving himself to be a skilled soldier in combat and an honorable man. Would remain loyal to Bruce as he swore that he no longer kept in touch with him despite the two frequently being in contact over HAM radios. This was done so that Jones could keep Bruce updated on both the search for him as well as the plans for General Ross to face a military tribunal for his actions. However before then we'd see fun little side plot as the Hulk would get his first proper scenes of action as he'd combat the circus of crime. The criminal organisation which used their special skills to rob the audiences of their possessions unfortunately would cross the wrong people as they robbed Betty Ross, Amadeus Cho and Leonard Skivorski on a rare outing for the trio. The criminal operation led by Maynard Tybalt/The Ringmaster (William Mapother) would steal several drives which they considered to be worthless. Unfortunately what they stole was research material composed by Cho and Skivorski. This would very much put them in the trios' cross hairs but as Betty tracked down the group. She was taken hostage as the group hoped to extort her father for money.

    All this would do was anger Banner who transformed into the Hulk in an effort to battle the Circus. Thanks to a location from Cho and an assist from Skivorski who was shown to be potentially harboring some feeling for Betty. Banner was able to rescue his girlfriend while also coming up against the circus. This would be despite some adversity from Tybalt's group which was comprised of The Clown (Matt Servito), The Strongman (Martyn Ford), Great Gabonos (Francis Arnaund), The Human Cannonball (John Foo) and Princess Python (Bex Taylor Klaus). After defeating the group but showing enough restraint not to kill them. Hulk left the circus to be arrested while Skivoski and Cho resumed their research. Although soon it would become apparent that there would be other problems for the group to face as a device containing gamma radiation triggered in a small town city of Middleton, Arizona. While many affected would be killed by the blast it was believed that the surviving few would have their lives altered forever.

    This would draw out all the military services it could with Cary St Lawrence taking lead until John Ryker showed up and pulled rank on her. Ryker would then begin to bring in his own men and completely shut both Cary and Clay out of the operation. Contacting his superiors Clay Quartermain was warned of Ryker and what has been referred to his extreme methods. Ryker's methods however soon became revealed as he spoke in private with General Ross. Revealing how his wife was dying with cancer and how all he wants is to save her. Ryker stated that he believes that Gamma Radiation can in fact be the cure. In order for it to be the case however he needs a true live subject such as the Hulk as he reveals that he and Crawford in fact once tried to recreate the Hulk but all they ended up with was a freak they turned into a weapon in order to destroy. Of course the arrival of General Ross on sight would cause further conflict between Cary's unit and that of Ryker's. As Rick Jones would reach out to Banner and warn him that something was going on and that they might need him.

    Ross' research into the device however would lead him further down a dark path as in secret he would continue his work with Emil Blonsky. Despite worrying concerns over Blonsky's growing aggression. Ross would remain intent on creating something to kill the Hulk and would even recruit Crawford to continue their experiments on Blonsky despite being unaware of what it was doing to him on the inside. This was again shown later on as Emil would brutally beat his wife and put her in hospital. Although it wasn't openly stated Ross firmly believed that Blonsky would be the one to change things and eliminate the Hulk. Unfortunately this hatred he had for the Hulk had completely blinded Ross as he would soon be confronted by Samuel Sterns. Despite learning the knowledge of Sterns being the one behind the bombing, General Ross would put aside any misgivings as The Leader promised him that he could give him the Hulk. In truth however the Leader had his own motivations as he secretly had his own plans for the Hulk. In order to clear the way for their plans however Ross would speak with Ryker with the goal being capture and experiment on the Hulk before looking to take the Hulk from Banner and give it to Blonsky. Then once that was complete Ross could execute Banner.

    In order to follow through with this plot however Ross and his team would have to draw out the Hulk. This would be where the Leader came in as he alerted Ross and his men to the presence of survivors in Middleton. These survivors all had been heavily affected by the gamma radiation in Middleton. This group was comprised of former teacher Sam LaRoquette/Rock (Daniel Sharman), athlete Louise Lembert/Hotshot (Alycia Debnam Carey), the shy and timid Jesse Harrison/Jailbait (Emily Kinney), Lawyer Diane Davids/Ogress (Michelle Krusiec), Burt Harrison/Omnibus (Ukweli Roach) and lastly priest Jason McCall/Soulman (David Wilmot). This group of flawed, troubled individuals who would find themselves all gifted with abilities were easy prey for Leader who manipulated them into thinking they were in fact chosen for a greater purpose. Convincing them they could be helped by the government if they in turn helped them bring down the Hulk. The leader came up with a plan which was morally questionable. As in order to draw out the Hulk they would need bait. Bait which would be the unit of soldiers led by Cary St.Lawrence which would include both Clay Quartermain and Rick Jones.

    Despite both John Ryker and General Ross showing some concerns in regards to this plot. Both men were swayed for their various reasons as Ross remained focused on taking down the Hulk while Ryker remained determined that in studying the DNA of these people. He can not only help others but also better the current creations. With him being in charge of the operation Ryker followed through with the plan and had Cary's unit go in with some of his own men. Making them sacrifices for the further plan as the group was quickly attacked by the Riot Squad. Suffering casualties the remaining soldiers are pinned down while Rick Jones is left with no choice but to reveal he has a way to contact the Hulk. Radioing out to Banner, Jones begged him to help him. This call would be made as both Cho and Skivorski continued their research with Banner's bloodwork. Of course as this research time went on it came clear that while Cho dutifully was working to help his friend, Skivorski didn't care about helping Bruce as much. Instead what he really wanted to do was look like a hero for Betty.

    Knowing his friends were in danger Bruce wasted no time in heading out to Arizona. Unaware of just what threats were in front of him Bruce transformed into the Hulk as he would find himself matched up against the full force of the Riot Squad. Contested in many ways like a gauntlet it was believed the Riot Squad went after him individually to further the Leader's studies of the Hulk. Of course these details were not shared with either Ryker or Ross who fully believed that they were in charge of things. Starting things out against Hulk would be former teacher Samuel LaRoquette. His body having changed into malleable rock it is with his powers that Sam aka Rock was able to morph parts of his body into rocky spikes capable of damaging the Hulk. During his battle with Banner, Rock revealed how he had in fact heard of Banner before as he had students hand him their papers on some of his projects. Of course that was a long time ago and after some scandals he was a man down on his luck until he gained these powers. Relishing in having power Rock proved to be a tough opponent for Hulk at least until Hulk shockingly was able to smash the outer shell of Rock, freeing Sam from his exo skeleton much to his horror.

    Unfortunately in beating Rock, Hulk had some injuries which made him more than susceptible in his next battle against Diane Davids/Ogress. A frustrated former criminal defender, Davids saw her new monstrous form as a means to rehabilitate herself and in some ways cleanse her soul for freeing the guilty. Now turned into a fearsome beast, Ogress had the strength to match the Hulk and it appeared that as she got angrier she would in fact get even stronger. Unfortunately for her however she would find that unlike Banner with Hulk who had managed to at least get some control over the beast. Diane was unable to control it and would find herself overwhelmed by her abilities which allowed Hulk to beat down Ogress. Once he had dealt with Ogress however Hulk found himself confronted by Omnibus. A former salesman known as Burt Horowitz, Omnibus was granted enhanced intelligence which was capable of possibly exceeding that of The Leader. Believing that he had in fact studied The Hulk enough to defeat him, it would be the arrogance of Omnibus which would backfire on him as he was easily defeated by Hulk.

    Once he had dealt with Omnibus Hulk was able to clear a path for Clay Quartermain and Cary St.Lawrence to get free. Despite her misgivings about Banner, Cary seemed to appreciate the save here as she fled but not before directing him to where Jones was being held. Yet in order to get to Rick, Hulk would have to contend with the final three members of the Riot Squad. However it would seem that Jess Harrison/Jailbait and Louise Lembert/Hotshot had formed a close bond since their transformation. These two women had each suffered in the past with Lembert being slandered for her sexuality while Harrison was a victim of domestic abuse. These scars made them each conflicted figures in regards to their new powers as while Jailbait was able to create energy shields to protect herself. Hot Shot was able to produce energy blasts. This sisterhood between the two of them was on full display however as they proved to be tragic characters with Lembert in particular seeing flashes of her family and friends disowning her based on her being gay. As she began to get overwhelmed by anger, the energy in her went to a dangerous level until Harrison snatched her in a hug and trapped them in an energy field protecting everyone else from Lembert's explosion killing them both instantly.

    This tragic death clearly affected the Hulk who found himself confronted by a solemn Soul Man. The former priest who confirmed that he was a criminal about to turn himself in before the blast. Soul man released any captives and gave himself up to the hulk without a fight. On saving everyone Hulk quickly fled while the remaining members of the Riot Squad were brought in by John Ryker. The scene which followed however was horrifying as John Ryker personally executed every member of the riot squad to use their DNA for experimental purposes. Having lost sight of his original plans Ryker now was fully committed to creating his own super soldier. With the Leader not informing him of the differences in the genetic makeup, Ryker and Crawford made sure their facility was empty on the fateful night they began their experiment on Blonsky. With only Emil, General Ross, Sterns, Ryker and Crawford present. The experiment on Blonsky would take a horrific turn as Blonsky's previous enhancements combined with these turned him into the monstrous abomination. An explosion would then trigger with huge dosages of radiation hitting both Sterns and General Ross with Sterns fully being turned into the leader we know from the comics.

    Meanwhile the blast would incinerate both Crawford and Ryker instantly. The fallout from this event was huge as sights of a creature were being pinned on the Hulk by those looking to cover up the event. This of course wasn't satisfactory to Cary St.Lawrence, Rick Jones or Clay Quartermain who began looking into what happened with the assistance of both Skivorski and Cho. Meanwhile with the leader missing and General Ross currently in a catatonic state, Betty Ross would also come out of hiding and be at her father's side. Meanwhile having been transformed into the fearsome Abomination, it wouldn't take Emil Blonsky long to get his rematch with the Hulk. What followed was a brutal battle as Hulk took on the Abomination. Despite his new found powers Abomination was soon worn down and defeated by The Hulk. Yet before Hulk could finish him he was trapped by the Leader. As the Abomination fled, the leader began to taunt Hulk as he revealed how originally he wanted to learn about the Hulk and possibly make an ally of him. Yet as he watched him and his capabilities he determined that while Hulk is powerful, Banner is not worthy of such a power. Which is why he will instead take the Hulk from him.

    Wounded badly from his battle with the Hulk, The Abomination reached out to the one person he felt he could trust. Cornering his ex wife and demanding her help to recover. The abomination would hide out in her basement while he recuperated. Yet in an empowering moment it would be his wife who would be his down fall as Nadia reached out to his former employers and it would be a unit comprised of Cary St.Lawrence, Rick Jones and Clay Quartermain with the aid of SHIELD who captured the Abomination. As SHIELD sent the Abomination into holding, a concerned Cho reached out to SHIELD in regards to Hulk's capture at the hands of Leader. Tracking the radiation signature Amadeus Cho and Leonard Skivorski along with some SHIELD agents began to find the Hulk before Leader could perform this surgery. As they found his location however the SHIELD agents found themselves confronted by Leader's humanoid drones.

    Managing to break free from the group it would be Amadeus Cho who became the hero of the day as he was able to sabotage the leader's machines. This would cause the Leader's experiment to backfire on himself and allow SHIELD to capture him. Later reports would then indicate that while the Leader was still granted his intelligence that slowly his mind would fade and he would be driven mad. But while one would be forgiven for thinking this was the end of the story. Instead there was one final chapter to be told that had been teased following the earlier lab explosion. Because while his vitals remained the same it become apparent on waking up that General Ross was a different man than he was before the explosion. Showing signs of a mutation in brief clips from his wake up it wouldn't be until this point in the story that we saw the Red Hulk in all it's glory.

    A being of pure rage and hate General Ross' transformation only furthered his hatred of Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Injuring and killing several soldiers in his escape General Ross went out in search of Bruce Banner. Meanwhile horrified at seeing what her father had become, Betty Ross turned to a sympathetic Leonard Skivorski and Amadeus Cho as they went through all of Ryker/Crawford's research. Along with research they had found from the Leader's base the group began to construct a method to at least reverse the effects of Red Hulk. Meanwhile it didn't take Red Hulk long to find The Hulk for the battle to ensue. In a rare showing for this show so far to give the Hulk someone who could truly out match him. But this was the case here as the rage of Red Hulk allowed him to brutally beat down the Hulk. Even with the help of SHIELD, the Hulk wasn't able to mount much offense as Red Hulk slammed him onto the ground. Before Red Hulk could finish the job however he would be confronted by Betty Ross. Standing between her father and the man she loves, Betty pleaded with her father as she wanted to get him help.

    Relenting for a brief moment The Red Hulk was shot at with a serum by SHIELD to reverse the transformation. Falling to the ground a distraught General Ross was angered at his failing to finish off the job with Hulk. Handcuffed and loaded into the back of a van, a ranting General Ross can be heard pleading with the agents to do the right thing and execute Banner. Meanwhile have transformed back into a beaten, weakened Bruce Banner. Bruce was slowly helped to his feet by Betty as medics began to check on him. The closing moments would then see Cary St.Lawrence at one time a soldier under General Ross, now a fully recognized SHIELD agent shake Bruce Banner's hand as she admits that she was wrong about him. Looking back at Rick Jones before looking to Banner again, Cary would then inform him that from now on he wouldn't need to hide and use a radio for cover. As instead she handed him a phone before closing that soon her boss would like to speak with him.

    As always with every Marvel story there would be a post credit scene and this season of Hulk would be no different. However rather then set up the next series as per the norm with this. Instead we got a look at what could very well be the future of the series as we saw a meeting taking place at SHIELD headquarters. This meeting would feature the entire S.H.I.E.L.D high command gathered for a meeting called together by executive director Nick Fury (Djimon Hounsou). Present at this meeting would be high ranking agents Phil Coulson (Gabriel Macht), Maria Hill (Trieste Kelly Dunne) and Clay Quartermain (Charles Mesure), SHIELD high command members GW Bridge (John Goodman) and Rick Stoner (Michael Ironside), Nick Fury's right hand man Alexander Pierce (John Pyper Ferguson) as well as Council member Victoria Hand (Elizabeth Mitchell). During this meeting several topics are discussed with Fury starting out by expressing his disappointment in General Ross and his vendettas clouding his judgement.

    It is then that Fury asks of the whereabouts of Banner but no one is able to give a definitive answer. Showing several of the dynamics at the table however Victoria Hand then comments about how one of Fury's key pieces has proven uncontrollable while others are past it or too arrogant to unite. It is then Hand confirms that with Blonsky now in the fold Ross' old team is ready to go should a threat emerge. As the scene wraps up a solemn Fury hopes it is enough to defend the world from what is coming!
