Yeah, like...Not sure either, but I'm looking forward to seeing where they take it.
MCU does a great job taking core concepts from comic plots, modernizing them, and coming up with great plots that have twists and turns that don't necessarily adhere only to the story from the books.
Really? I think they've both been strong, but for different reasons. WandaVision was so unique and entertaining and was a great slow burn. FATWS is really deep and is not shying away from tackling modern racism in its fictional world. I'm actually really impressed and surprised that Disney/Marvel are going there.Waiting to see how the last episode pans out, but I've been really disappointed in FATWS. It's decent,.but just not hooked into the story. The "bad guys" are not that compelling with murky motivations. It looks pretty,.good stunts, etc. But overall I think WandaVision was much better.
Hard to argue a lot of it, he isn’t a super soldier...the fights against Bucky, spidey, and flag smashers are all superpowers people.Saw this yesterday:
Powering through the incredibly uneven The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, I finally realized what it was - Sam Wilson can’t fight.blacknerdproblems.com

Now spidey and Flag Smashers aren’t/weren’t established fighters but still super powered.
Antman was a fight that both were up against unknown opponents. Scott with “powers” helped give him an advantage.
And Rumlow is an interesting one. As the lost equal I think, Rumlow had shield training and almost like an assassin, and fighting to kill, I can’t remember if sam was fighting to kill so it’s a hard go against all this.
Steve, T’Challa, Killmonger, even Bucky all had training and exp and time to develop skills like that. So...
I'm only 3 episodes into WandaVision so far but I think the writing blows FATWS out of the water so far. It sounds like FATWS' plot had to be rewritten when the pandemic happened and you can definitely tell; it was just all over the place and there was a lot of sloppy editing in there.
Still a fun watch, but it was fun more from a "I like casual action flicks" POV than a "this is great TV" POV.
Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was good. Aquaman was entertaining. Harley Quinn was fun.They're knocking it out of the park. Comparatively, DC is striking out with every at bat.
