Ed Brubaker: "For the most part all Steve Epting and I have gotten for creating the Winter Soldier and his storyline is a 'thanks' here or there, and over the years that's become harder and harder to live with." [same exploitive work-for-hire comics industry, different century]

Zack Snyder's Justice League review [Mike Ryan at Uproxx] ["It's a vast improvement from the prior version... a pretty low bar... changed from disaster to misfire... just a really long, more coherent version... will most likely wind up being the version of this movie that's most accepted as the definitive version, kind of like how it's pretty hard to track down the version of Blade Runner that has Harrison Ford's narration."]

[hope for Doc fans who don't want everyone else to have his abilities easily: "But of course, Marvel heroes suddenly trying to learn to be magical hasn't always gone well before, which means there's no guarantee it'll go well now. 'Oh. This will not go well,' [writer Kelly] Thompson said."]

WandaVision closes to mostly positive reviews, but:

1. It's tough to be a Dr. Strange fan: Doc didn't appear!

2. It's tough to be a Dr. Strange fan: MCU Scarlet Witch set up with "more powerful than the Sorcerer Supreme" "chaos magic" crap [grudgingly acceptable (a) if she's going bad, and maybe she is, after the final reveal with the Darkhold learning magic fast astrally as Doc did- and (b) MCU Witch was amplified with an Infinity Stone]

3. It was lies and letdowns. Fakesilver was just gag casting- not a multiverse primer. The actor Paul Bettany was supposedly excited to work with was himself? The hype rumors and fan speculations were better than what we actually got.
