While the film’s eye-popping action sequences and exotic locales are undeniably fun, it’s a bit too focused on ticking off series-affiliated tropes to create an organic story. Character development and dialogue are relegated to a far back seat, while the picture’s plot dovetails with the other Craig Bond films in a way that feels like a desperate attempt to cash in on the previous film’s successful formula. Moreover, sparks don’t exactly fly between the main leads (Craig and Lea Seydoux) and Christoph Waltz is dismayingly bland as an overly genteel villain whose primary beef verges on petulant.
In the Silver Age of Comic Books, DC Comics editor Julius Schwartz revived the Spectre, a spirit who was undead and almost omnipotent. This new version debuted in Showcase #60 (February 1966) and was written by Gardner Fox with art by Murphy Anderson. After a few issues of solo work, the Spectre returned to his role as a narrator in various horror anthologies such as The Brave and the Bold and Justice League of America.
Riot Games’ popular League of Legends first brought the Spectre to Valorant in July 2021 as part of the Sentinels of Light event, and it continues to be one of the best guns in the game thanks to its mystic vibes. The Spectre is available to own for 2,175 VP and can be upgraded with Radianite Points to unlock different color options, a finisher, and more.
