I am sure everyone has heard that Phoenix Jones, Seattle’s premiere real life super hero was arrested on October 9th for apparently pepper spraying some people who he mistook for fighting. They claim however that they were merely horsing around, leading the rainy city’s most popular super hero to being arrested. My thoughts? Could these people have been plants sent to set up and ruin Jones forever?! Quite possible. But my words to Phoenix is don’t give up, I mean seriously look at all the fucked up shit that has happened to Spider-man or say Daredevil over the years! They’ve done a lot more than pepper spray the wrong people and they never stopped the fight. So what now if your secret identity has been revealed to the world-there are a lot of super heroes that don’t let that get in the way. Everyone knows Steve Rogers is Cap!
Well apparently he already considered all these things because word on the street is that Phoenix Jones HAS actually hit the streets again according to the Everett Herald, it seems that the prosecutors declined to file charges. It makes you wonder if Jones has a foggy Nelson type character in his life helping him out? Or perhaps the people just realized the obvious-life’s a lot more rad knowing you have a real life super hero patroling your city!!
So did everyone out there get a good look today at the new Superman today? It seems the new photo of Henry Cavill as Supes is causing quite a buzz online today. What I am confused about is why these new movie super heroes seem to be constructing their costumes out of basketballs?!
Seriously this is the new trend- The new Spider-man also has a costume constructed from basketballs.
Hmmm….not really all that into that look personally and geezus it’s gotta be hot as shit! This new extreme look for super heroes is actually kinda lame. I have got to be honest, I pretty much can firmly say that all the super hero costumes so far in the movies kinda blow. Even Batman, looks pretty lame with all of his clunky armor even though the movies have been pretty rad. What I will say is that these super hero movies will not age well, honestly I’m not too sure how long they will continue to keep my attention. They are an amusing watch the first time but upon second viewing end up being pretty flat and totally plastic. That being said the new Superman looks more like a friendlier version of Bizzaro. It appears as if Superman has been given the Chris Nolan dark hero look which personally doesn’t really work for me….
Ok so this isn’t really that obscure of a movie, but I do know that a good number of my friends have never actually seen 1989’s Return of the Swamp Thing!!! What the hell is up with that? You do see the original Swamp Thing movie all over the place but very rarely do you see the sequel, which is actually kind of a reboot. So I say to all you people there that love super radly bad 80’s movie’s that you best be seeking this gem out!
This box office bomb has it all really, super awesome 1980’s monsters are everywhere in this movie and even better they are throwin’ down with each other constantly! Continue reading
I was talking with some friends the other night about something I think is really interesting and kinda depressing in the world of comics books. The topic of realism in super hero comic books. I am not talking realism in a way of superhuman beings roaming the earth, having crazy powers and fighting crime. Nope, you see that’s all more than fine with me. I am rather talking about the fact that it seems almost every super hero or super team seems to have a full cast of beautifully sculpted super models in their ranks. Even worse is the fact that almost every artist draws everyones faces the same-I mean most of the time Bruce Banner is drawn with same face as Reed Richards, Captain America or Cyclops! Kind of a cookie cutter “safe” bland drawing of men or women in comic books. See this has been happening since the beginning of comic books and to be quite honest it’s kinda lame.
I personally would LOVE to see a little more depth and realism in my comic books. Why does every woman have to have the same perfect body?? Doesn’t The Invisible Woman ever eat too many donuts when nobody is looking? Continue reading
Yeah! What a great discovery made today in the world of obscure super hero movies! “Hero at Large” is now the number one movie I’m trackin’ down upon my first viewing of the the trailer-it features one of my favorite people ever-John Ritter AKA Jack Tripper!!!
Yeah straight out of Three’s Company the late great Ritter apparently starred in this incredible looking zany real life super hero flick! Continue reading
So I just got done reading the brand new Alpha Flight 0.1 and it was a pretty nice re-introduction to the original team! It had some real great artwork by Ben Oliver and Dan Green and a great cover which brought back memories of John Byrne. What really would have been great would have been if they could have actually got Byrne to draw this new series(check out the amazing pick below by Byrne). So far so good here as we get a pretty interesting idea of some sort of political turmoil in Canada as their elections are about to begin and a new party called Unity is revealed. I am assuming that Unity leader must win the election and somehow turn the country against Alpha Flight? We’ll see I guess!
Anyway the whole resurrected cast is here, well sorta… Continue reading
