Director Talks Captain America 2 (Article) - 7/26/2012 10:36:16 AM

I think the Falcon is the equivalent of Aquaman.  Communicates with birds? How about no sidekick.  How about Sharon Carter, Mocking Bird, or anyone else incontinuity or otherwise...because the Falcon sucks. 

Captain Marvel #1 Review (Article) - 7/24/2012 11:21:39 AM

Super Heroes should never die of cancer, it's too ordinary.  I didn't bother to even read this, as I am not a fan of Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel.  I definitely think the art should reflect the character and writing style.  Getting my first look at it, it seems his style would better fit some of Marvel's darker charcters...Punisher, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, or Daredevil.  Marvel is pulling some weird crap right now...although I did kind of like Space Punisher...weird and campy in a good way.  I think I've stated on previous board's that I am not a big Avengers comic book fan.  I love Cap, but I rarely read any of the other Avenger's members' Comics.  I read Wolverine, but I really wish he would leave the Avengers, he seems neutered and out of place.

Stan Returns as Bucky (Article) - 7/18/2012 11:38:27 AM

@ deathjim - Bucky becomes Capt. America when Cap "allegedly" gets shot after Civil War arc.  During Fear Itself Sin, or the Red Skull's daughter, rips Bucky's metal arm off and he dies, Steve Rogers decides to be Cap America once again.

@ Capt - I agree Cap is one of my favorite super heroes and I'd rather somebody(s) else direct the movie.  If you're looking for a directing duo, can't go wrong with the Cohens.

I do not like the Falcon, probably one of the dumbest super powers ever.  I like birds, but I'd rather talk to or communicate with dogs or just be a Doctor Doolittle/Beastmaster type and be able to communicate with any animal.  My favorite Black Super Hero? Wesley Snipes...he can evade taxes and has his own martial art...his one weakness Woody Harrelson.

Walking Dead Prison Photos (Article) - 7/6/2012 8:39:00 AM

@elrushbo - Why would I go to a prison during a zombie apocalypse?  Assuming I could clear the prison of any undead, it's definitely as secure of a place as you'll find in this country.  Americans have never been big on castles, but we're big on prisons.  There's several in every state.  High Fences, high walls, gates, and amenities meant for the use of a small populace such as a kitchen, bathrooms, showers, bunks, beds and housing.  There would be food stores most likely, probably not great food, but beggars can't be choosers.  Honestly, I'm surprised it hasn't been done before, maybe it has but I can't remember....too many zombie movies and shows lately.

In terms of a cure, yeah I'd have to say that's been delayed, especially since they all have the virus.  My only question regarding that is Why is it if you get bit you turn within days, but if you've contracted it via water or even the air you have to die to become a zombie?  That's new in terms of zombie lore, and I have a couple of logical reasons, but they don't seem to fit real well with what I know about other contagious diseases.

Comicscape: AvX Half Time Report (Article) - 6/29/2012 11:49:07 AM

@joelr...Yeah I had a funny feeling about the Scarlet Witch coming back since that #0 issue, and especially once Quicksilver got involved.

@everyone else...If you really like the Silver Age of comics when Cap was always fighting the Red Skull or Nazis...You can still find those comics in printed or digital form.  The big event/cross-over comics have been great in the past...House of M, Secret Invasion, Civil War were all really good and impacted the Marvel U in one way or another.  That being said...

I don't like the writing in many of the tie-ins or the art due to lack of continuity.  The one thing Uncanny X-Force and Rick Remender have done well is stay in-continuity with the characters that have their own solo series.  Deadpool loses his Healing Factor in Deadpool, he loses his Healing Factor in Uncanny X-Force.  I don't understand why comic to comic continuity is so hard to attain.  I also don't understand why Clayton Crain or Jerome Opena aren't doing any of the art in these series.  Sometimes you can listen to a song you've never heard before and know who the singer is because of the uniqueness of their voice.  I feel the same way about Comic Art, I know a Clayton Crain, Jerome Opena, and Steve Dillon piece of artwork without having to see their name on it, their style is unique.  The only Comics I have been able to re-read lately are the X-Force and Uncanny X-Force comics, it is truly some of the best writing and art collaborations I have seen in the past 4 or 5 years.

Toy Maniac: Hasbro SDCC 2012 Exclusives (Article) - 6/29/2012 10:58:02 AM

I've been collecting the Marvel Universe toys for a while and I'm pretty excited about the X-Force Collectors pack.  I already own all the other X-Force gear including a SDCC exclusive Marvel Universe Archangel in his X-Force uniform, these toys are already posted on E-Bay for around 100 bucks on average.  Which isn't bad considering what some people will charge for a $50 Tyler Stout poster on E-Bay.  It's the unfortunate side of geekdom, call it geexploitation.  It's why I don't watch The Big Bang Theory, just because I like Comic Books and I'm smart doesn't make me gay or bad with women, it means I like Comic Books.  I'm 6'3 and weigh 225 lbs., I played football and baseball in high school, partied like a rock star in college, and had more tail thrown at me than the Dog Whisperer.  In other words, I'm awesome.

Warner Brothers Preps JLA (Article) - 6/14/2012 1:09:46 PM

I think a JLA movie will do great at the theatres it's first week, but slide quickly afterwards.  It really all depends on which characters get solo movies before JLA and how good those movies are.  I don't like any DC characters, except Batman, the rest seem impossibly cheesy and have horrible super hero aliases.  Booster Gold? Lobo might be good, but Warner Bros. have definitely missed the bus with every DC movie they've adapted with the exception of Batman, and before Nolan took over....well I'm sure I don't have to remind anyone of how bad some of those were.

I could care less about Wonder Woman or the Green Arrow, and if they are going to do Darkseid I suggest they kick it into high gear.  The Avengers are already using Thanos and if I remember correctly he looks very similar to Darseid.  Big, purplish-blue, and they are both aliens....most people not familiar with either character could certainly confuse the two.  I think they should finish Batman and Superman, and leave the rest alone for a few years.  Marvel's license has been on a few stinkers both Ghost Riders, all three Punishers, Daredevil and Elektra (I optimistically thought Ghost Rider: SOV would be better than I read, for once the critics nailed it).  So if they get in a funk, it is certainly possible people will stop going to see them.

Theron Talks Mad Max (Article) - 6/3/2012 9:36:21 AM

I feel alone on this, but I liked all of the Mad Max movies, including Beyond the Thunderdome.  I liked the campy characters like Master Blaster, The Humungus, Pig Killer, and Jedediah (Bruce Spence as the Gyro Captain and the Pilot).  I guess after reading comics for almost 20 years I've become numb to the idea of a reboot.  I liked X-Force in the 90's, but I never religously read it until a couple of years ago when X-Force became a hit squad full of mutant (and non-mutant) bad-asses.  I feel the same about movie franchises.  I'll keep my eyes open for news regarding the movie, watch the trailers when they're released, and decide whether or not I want to see the movie in a theatre or at home.  I'm sure that most of you will do the same.  At the end of the day, what guy can resist fast cars, big explosions, and sexy ass women.....I can't.

The Geek Life: Back into Comics (Article) - 5/23/2012 10:43:03 AM

 I used to collect comics, but eventually you run out of room and I'm not purchasing a storage building to just keep my comics in.  I agree with Wise and others, I grew up with these characters, and I do care about what happens to these fictional friends who spent years entertaining me when it was raining outside or was just too cold to play.  Comics or at least the characters they've spawned are a billion dollar industry and are transitioning to the digital age.  I don't beleive that this trend means the end of printing comic books and I hope the "Digital Age" of comics changes the way Marvel, DC, and others do business.  I'd like to see more graphic novels instead of the skinny ass comics I grew up with.  I could read one in all of 5-10 minutes and be pissed I just dropped half my hard earned allowance for the introduction to an epic story.  Everyone loves a trilogy or a saga, but not in five minute pieces.  I do read some comics using the Marvel Comics app on my Iphone and I enjoy reading them while I'm waiting in line at the grocery store, during my morning constitutional or driving home from work.  I still buy some comics at a local comic shop (it's my way of helping the mom and pop stores), however after reading my comics I give them to someone else (its my way of sharing my love for the art and writing in some comics).  I am the same way about books.  I guess I'm still old fashioned at the old age of 32, I still enjoy reading and I like art.

Marvel Knights Animation ASTONISHING X-MEN DANGEROUS (Article) - 4/6/2012 8:31:54 AM

I wonder why they don't use some of their better artists to do Marvel's animated series.  Not only is this dumb, but a waste of time.  I've heard people talk up the Marvel Anime features such as Wolverine and X-Men's horrible.  I don't think Anime is all that great of an animation method or style.  The cover of DC's Superman/Batman Doomsday has art done by Clayton Crain, the animation in the movie is done by some other artist, very misleading.  I had hoped with, Disney owning Marvel, there would be more animated movies with better art.
