White House declares victory
Millionaires and billionaires paying "their fair share" is not going to fix the economy.  Is this about making the rich pay their "fair share" or reducing debt?
This is not the right time to be raising taxes on the rich, as this means they are less likely to invest, as the stock market is very psychological.  It also means with obamacare in place, lots of people will be laid off, have hours cut, or will simply not be hired.
This president is utterly incompetent.
Also, a large portion the money "gained" from taxing the rich will be lost on the extension of unemployment benefits, as well as furthering policies of making citizens dependent on the government .
We need to get people to work and off the unemployment and the current president is doing nothing for the economy, he is manipulating the destroyed morale of the american people to think rich people are responsible for this economy.

Ducktales may be a timeless show that can be easily adapted to any time (as this series so far proves), but there are some aspects that haven't aged well. For example, Scrooge McDuck obtained his wealth through his lifelong career as an industrialist, thus making him a caricature of the Robber Barons. Considering how manufacturing jobs have been on the decline in recent years, such a career path no longer seems feasible in this day and age, making Scrooge literally a relic of another time. Nowadays, the big money is being made, not through the manufacturing sector, but within the tech sector. So it only made sense for the series to bring in a new character to reflect these new times.

Enter Mark Beaks, the tech mogul who represents the new breed of entrepreneurs making their money in the tech sector. As such, he perfectly encapsulates all of the vices that have come to stereotype the Silicon Valley "tech bro." And that right there is the major problem with his character. Most of his tech-savvy nature is centered around such stereotypes, which makes all of the comedy surrounding him focused solely on regurgitating jokes about social media. If you've heard one joke about how Silicon Valley types are eccentric "out-of-touch" kooks, or how young people these days are obsessed with smart phones and social media, you've pretty much heard all of the jokes being made about Mark.

Where this episode shines, however, is two fold. First is the rivalry between Scrooge and Glumgold, a rivalry so petty that some of their biggest conflicts involve something as simple as a staring contest, though major enough that they often involve Glumgold trying to make an attempt against Scrooge's life. Of course, so incompetent is Glumgold in these attempts that Scrooge barely considers him a threat, to the point where he can comfortably maintain their relationship more along the lines of "frenemies" rather than as "mortal enemies."

The other good aspect is with the storyline involving Huey and Dewey. Both have been accepted as interns at Mark's company with aspirations of eventually climbing the corporate ladder and becoming tech moguls themselves. While Huey is dead set on achieving such a goal, whereas his slacker brother couldn't care less, he learns the hard way a lesson I'm sure most of us have also learned in our occupations: that the myth of meritocracy is just that--a myth! This is especially true when it comes to the tech sector, which, far from being a "free market", is very much a "crony capitalist system" where hard work can always be upstaged by some guy with higher connections and a better personality, and where someone can make it big by literally doing nothing. Considering who's sitting in the White House office right now, it's a lesson that really and sadly remains relevant.


Interesting that Scrooge is willing to hang out and be friends with someone who, only a few episodes ago, wanted to kill him and his family.

Then again, as we'll see later in this episode, considering how "well" Glumgold is successful with his schemes, I'm going to guess Scrooge isn't very threatened by him in the least.


So his name is Mark Beaks? I'm guessing the creators wanted to go with the obvious pun of Mark Zuckerbird, but didn't want to end up being potentially sued for copyright infringement.

Now that I think about it, there are plenty of potential bird puns for other tech moguls in the Ducktales universe: Talon Musk. Tweeter Theil. Duckbill Gates.


I'm really curious as to what type of social media app "Waddle" is trying to satirize. Is it anything like Tinder? Do people have to swipe left and right with their webbed feet?


Mark: I'll flip you my peep-deeps so you can follow my updates.

Scrooge: I don't understand half those words.

And here's the main problem with Mark Beaks as a "character": most of the jokes involving him are social-media related, and those types of jokes have been done to death. They basically barrel down to "LOL! Aren't those millennials just wacky with their obsession with smart phones and social media?", and it's the type of sentiment that's been expressed by every hack Boomer/Gen-X political cartoonist and their grandmother. We get it, grandpa! You don't get those darn kids and their darn-fangled new phones. We've already heard your jokes a million times before!


I want to side with Huey, but I'm afraid I have to side with Dewey. To work in Silicon Valley, you have to be willing to take big risks. Being "irresponsible" pretty much comes with the territory. (See: Juicero, Bodega.)


So are you offering them an internship or a job? Because they're two different things. One of those you actually get paid for. The other is what most big corporations tend to hire people so they don't actually have to bother paying people.


There's something rather suspicious about this billboard. Let me put on some glasses and check...


Yup! Just as I thought.

Spider-Man Homecoming was recently released on DVD. Having watched the movie when it was first released in theaters, I can safely say that, while this adaptation of the web-slinger isn't as great as good as the original Sam Raimi films, it was far better than the Amazing Spider-Manfilms, and an overall great way to integrate Spidey into the MCU. If you haven't seen it, by all means catch it on DVD, if for no other reason than to prepare yourself for Avengers: Infinity Warnext year. Until then, check out this cool fan art:


I really love how Tony Stark (aka: my favorite Avenger) is serving as the mentor to Spider-Man in the MCU, and how the entire movie played out like a Sorcerer's Apprentice scenario. I can only imagine Peter and Tony hanging out like this after a training session.


Spiderman Homecoming by Daniel-Jeffries

Fun Fact: The Vulture was supposed to make an appearance in Spider-Man 4, but that movie was canceled in favor of The Amazing Spider-Man. He was also supposed to make an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, but again, that movie was never released. So of course he had to make an appearance in this film. And it was glorious!



The bad news is that, because of Universal's contract with Marvel, Disney World in Florida is unable to make attractions based on most Marvel franchises, with the exception of a few such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange. The good news is that there will be rides coming to Disneyland, including an attraction based on Spider-Man. So jealous of the West Coast right now! I mean, how cool would it be to see Spider-Man swinging down from Cinderella Castle? So awesome!



Sadly, because Deadpool, along with the rest of the X-Men, is licensed to Fox, we'll never see the "Merc with the Mouth" cross over into the MCU. That's quite a shame, since I loved his appearance on Ultimate Spider-Man. (Though it was weird hearing Ron Possible's voice come out of his mouth!)



Anyone who's seen Spiderman: Homecoming can attest to an Easter egg that hints that Miles Morales exists within the MCU, and could potentially lead to an appearance by the African American version of Spider-Man sometime in the future. How cool would that be?

Marvel fans will marvel over the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, but will Marvel marvel them within another Ms. Marvel?


Spider-Man: Homecoming came home on DVD/Blu-Ray earlier this week, with Thor set to bring the thunder into theaters next month with Thor: Ragnarok. Of course, the big movie that Marvel fans have been waiting for infinity over is next summer’s Avenger: Infinity War!

Perhaps even more anticipated than next summer’s guaranteed blockbuster hit are the two movies starring the MCU’s first African-American and female superhero leads, with 2018’s Black Panther and 2019’s Captain Marvel respectively.

The latter movie is especially anticipated by Marvel fangirls and fanboys alike, as it will not only introduce the first female superhero lead, but it could also potentially lead to the introduction of another female superhero: Ms. Marvel.
