Moon Knight

The good: The origin of Marc’s personalities

Seeing what caused Marc’s multiple personalities was well done. It wasn’t Khonshu’s influence. The trauma caused by his mother’s abuse forced him to retreat inside himself. Showing this made people more sympathetic to the character.

The bad: Missing fights

The switches between personalities were intentional and helped show the dissociation between Marc and his others inside his mind. Sometimes they helped move the story along, other times they didn't. The biggest one came in the season finale. Steven, Marc, and the audience could have remained confused and witnessed the fight. Although, Marvel Comics fans knew it was Jake.

Ms. Marvel

The good: Kamala's family

Kamala’s family was entertaining, loving, and sometimes overbearing. But this is who they're supposed to be. Their love helped Kamala become a more well-balanced character. Their unpredictability made the show more intriguing. You never knew what they were going to do and that kept people on the edge of their seats.

A supporting cast is rarely as good as the star. This is one of the few exceptions.

The bad: The villains

The first antagonists in Ms. Marvel (the Clan Destines) fit the story. The United States Department of Damage Control did not. They were faceless goons that no one will remember. Kamala may have been a superhero rookie, but she should have defeated someone tougher than them.

SHE-HULK: ATTORNEY AT LAW

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

The good: The fun

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law was fun. This was a Marvel Studios project that understood who the character was. Jennifer Walters isn’t often a serious character. Why would she be here? That’s why Megan Thee Stallion made an appearance, Daredevil did the “walk of shame” and her finale was unlike anything Marvel has done. 

The bad: The Wrecking Crew

The Wrecking Crew was a joke. In the comics, they’ve gone up against Thor and won. Here, they couldn’t force Jennifer to break a nail. This isn’t bad for the show. The issue comes when Marvel wants to use them again. Were they so weak in She-Hulk that it wouldn’t be believable?

SECRET INVASION

Secret Invasion

The good: Nick Fury

Samuel Jackson will always deliver as Nick Fury (and any role in general). He’s been Nick Fury for so long that he could probably play the role in his sleep. Thankfully, he didn’t phone it in. Not even the great Nick Fury could save Secret Invasion

The bad: Calling it Secret Invasion

Sadly, there was a lot to dislike about this show. The one thing that keeps coming up is the name. Secret Invasion was a Marvel Comics series that took years to build. Once the first skrull was revealed, no one knew who they could trust. It added tension to every title. Marvel Studios rushed this. Six episodes weren’t enough to get this right. Name it something else and maybe it’s better received.

Echo

The good: Echo's potential

Alaqua Cox (Maya Lopez) showed a lot of potential. There was a ton of pressure for her to carry this show. It was the first Marvel Studios-produced show to debut on Hulu and Disney Plus. On top of that, Echo was marketed as a more violent series. Despite that, Alaqua Cox showed Maya has a place in the MCU.

The bad: The final fight

The final fight should have been all Maya. Having her family intervene took away from who she was. Granted, how she beat Wilson Fisk may have made up for that. Nevertheless, Maya should have stood alone and defeated her enemies.
