About Stephen Brophy

Stephen T. Brophy is a living human male. He resides in the principality of Los Angeles, California USA. He works in television production and makes his living answering the rhetorical question, “Reality TV has writers?” He loves his wife Danielle, his son Ash, his dogs Griff and Tex, science fiction, funnybooks, movies and sleep in more or less that order. Sleep might be higher on the list these days, but he doesn’t want to piss anyone off by bumping them.

Legion of Damn!

Back in the 1990s, when I was a flat-dwelling San Francisco Gen X slacktivist too busy falling in futile love with lesbians and smoking speed out of broken lightbulbs to do something as mundane as, ugh, watch TV, there was a live action series inspired by the X-Men comics I'd loved as a kid. Apparently, [...]

Mangold Paints His Masterpiece: A Spoiler-free Review of Logan

I was going to title this "Holy Fucking Shit! I Just Saw 'Logan'!" or words to that effect. But I went a different way. "Elegaic" is not a word I ever thought I'd be using to describe a movie set in the 20th Century Fox take on the X-Men Universe. I remember sitting in a [...]

The Devil’s Got A Free Hand!

As I further contemplate the turning of the screw that is achieving a half century of life, I find myself wanting to give away my earthly possessions--well, some of them anyway; definitely not the ones I use daily, like my car or any of my flatscreens or personal electronics--so I figure it's a fine time [...]

The Villain’s Sidekick For Free

Full disclosure: I'm about to have one of those milestone birthdays this month, where I find myself a lot older than the younger version of me ever thought I'd live to be. So in honor of that, I guess, I'm offering a couple of my books free this month over on Amazon, beginning with the [...]

Review: The Regional Office is Under Attack!

In a publishing world where we authors of a certain stripe are frequently told that there's just no market for superheroic prose, it's both heartening and frustrating when a work like this one manages to wend its way through the traditional distribution channels. Heartening because, like Soon I Will Be Invincible or The Violent Century, it's another testament to [...]

Secret History: A Review of Lavie Tidhar’s “The Violent Century”

I know I’m a good writer. I’m also long-resigned to the truth that I’ll never be a great writer. Whatever literary merit my pulpy seriocomic adventure stories contain is largely the byproduct of having ingested enough canonically “great” literature that nanoscopic slivers of same will occasionally, mostly accidentally, sneak in between the many overwrought adjectives and [...]

Luke Cage’s Symbol of Justice

Captain America has his shield. Thor's got his hammer. Iron Man's got his full-body armor. Not just weapons that they wield, but iconic symbols of their mythic power. At first glance, all Luke Cage seems to have is superhuman strength, bulletproof skin, and some pretty cool street clothes. And while some purist naysayers may not [...]

It Ain’t Shakespeare, But It’s Definitely Suicide Squad

Maybe I was just seduced by the tantalizing marketing, but up until very recently, David Ayer's Suicide Squad marked the first time I was genuinely excited about an upcoming DC/Warner Bros. property since at least The Dark Knight. Critical response, and feeling pretty burned by Green Lantern  and The Dark Knight Rises, was enough to keep me from experiencing Man of [...]

Spider-Woman and the Margins of the Marvel Multiverse

  The unlikely source of today's inspired ramblings is a comic book character I've rarely thought twice about, except whenever Comixology puts some of her books on sale and I see a writer's or artist's name attached that piques my interest. I'm talking, of course, about your friendly neighborhood Spider-Woman. I don't know much about [...]

Corrupts Absolutely: A Terrific Superpowered Anthology

Corrupts Absolutely is an unexpectedly satisfying collection of stories linked thematically by the idea that gaining superpowers is no guarantee of a future in superheroics. Nor is it always an obvious path to clearcut villainy. The truth is, we all mostly live in the gray, hovering on a border between acts we might construe as heroic [...]
