This comic balanced comedy with a very serious tone. It features Captain Marvel leading a team called Alpha Flight. This team's purpose is to protect Earth from alien threats before they arrive. Captain Marvel finds herself facing two threats at the same time. Defeating an alien race from her past and, avoiding a desk job. This comic is a great introduction to Carol Danvers’ character before her movie next year. I think this was a great read that all Marvel fans would enjoy

This book details the civil rights movement and the life/ death of Martin Luther King Jr. It also shows his assasins life and what led them to fatefully meet. The book was amazingly written and presented the facts in a direct, unbiased manner.

Diep.io is an awesome online game. You control a tank to destroy shapes and other tanks. You level up and change to different cool tanks. Can you get first on the leaderboard? I like this game because everyone is an equal.

Now You See Me is about a group of magicians called the Four Horsemen. They use their talents to take money from the rich and give to those who have very little. It is a very interesting spin on the Robin Hood story. I find myself returning to this movie again and again. This movie features amazing reveals, Due to the fact that it keeps much close to the chest. This movie us a creative twist on the typical action flick that is fun to watch. Anyone who enjoys mystery, action, and huge twists will like Now You See Me
