In flashbacks, Allen’s homeworld of Unopa was attacked by the Viltrumites, leading to his people joining the Coalition to stop them and breeding him to become the strongest Unopan. In the present, Allen discusses his findings from Earth with the Coalition, explaining that Mark is unaffiliated with Viltrum and Nolan left Earth. Over several members’ skepticism, Coalition leader Thadeus supports Allen, believing they possess an advantage, before secretly tasking him with rooting out a Viltrumite mole within their ranks. After Allen is attacked by three Viltrumites demanding information on Mark, Earth, and Nolan however, Thadeus secretly sabotages his recovery. Concurrently, Mark attends college and meets a shapeshifting insectoid alien from the planet Thraxa, who claims his people are in danger. Upon arriving, Mark is unexpectedly reunited with Nolan, who has become Thraxa’s ruler. Meanwhile, Debbie joins a support group for superhero spouses, only to be accosted by original Guardian member Green Ghost’s widower, Theo, for being previously married to Omni-Man and leaves in shame.
The Killer (2023)
Out 10 Brian and Darryl Grossly Disagree About This Movies
An unnamed skillful professional assassin (credited as “The Killer”) stakes out a Parisian hotel room. He prepares to use a sniper rifle to kill a target who will check into the hotel room at an unspecified time. While waiting for the target, he eats, practices yoga, listens to the Smiths, and talks on the phone with his handler, an attorney named Hodges. The Killer narrates about these activities, stressing the mantra of his rules and the routine, even boring, nature of his job and how his cynicism and lack of empathy are beneficial for his chosen occupation. The target eventually arrives in the company of a dominatrix. The Killer misses his target, accidentally shooting the dominatrix. He flees, successfully evades the police, and flies to the United States under one of his numerous fake identities.
