X573: Marvel Jeopardy! in Splash Fall 2017 (Nov. 04, 2017)
Yay! This is the third semester that the Marvel-series will be taught. This means we've completed a "trilogy" :) This time, we won't be watching clips or discussing science.

Scope: from Phase I - Phase III. May include recent releases of Inhumans, Sony-related Marvel movies and Netflix-owned Marvel shows (Daredevil, JJ, Luke Cage and the Immortal Iron Fist, sworn defender of Kun-lun) *Jeopardy will be done in pre-assigned groups* (8 groups of 5) Rewards include bragging rights!
