Week in Geek #82: The Mandalorian Season Finale, Hawks in Black Adam and Riley Howell | Fanboys Anonymous
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

Riley Howell Added to Star Wars Canon

Riley Howell, a young man who had died earlier this year while saving many people during a shooting, was a huge fan of Star Wars. As a tribute to him, the character of Ri-Lee Howell was created, as an historian Jedi in the visual dictionary of The Rise of Skywalker.

That is awesome and very touching. More people should be rewarded for such amazing acts of heroism. It never brings those people back, but it's a nice way to say thank you and to help society heal and promote positivity. Very, very cool.

Hawkman and Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman in Black Adam

It seems the Black Adam film could have the JSA battling it out with the titular...well, not hero...but protagonist, I guess.

Considering the ties to Egypt and all, I think it makes sense for the Hawks to be in the movie. However, I still maintain that it's a mistake to give Black Adam his own film in the first place. That's like doing an entire film about Metallo before having him fight Superman in a sequel.

The Mandalorian Season Finale

The Force Awakens disappointed me. Rebels underwhelmed in some big ways sometimes. Rogue One was meh. The Last Jedi killed my passion for Star Wars. Solo was trash. And yet, The Mandalorian—completely lacking in the Jedi, which is the main thing I like about Star Wars (I'm not as big a fan of the aliens and spaceships side of the series)—got me hooked from the start.

This is a well made show that was very interesting. I'm looking forward to season 2.
