Ant - Man

Yes that's right time for a little blog about one of the 1st Avengers who gets no love until his movie comes out on November 2015.

Dr. Henry " Hank " Pym made his comic debut in Tales to Astonish # 27 in 1962

It is not until Tales to Astonish # 35 in 1962 do we get to see the Ant - Man himself.

Dr. Henry Pym is a Biochemist who while playing with some particles discovered that it could alter his size. He called this the Pym Particles.Next he created a helmet so he could communicate and control ants. Later on he would share his secret with his girlfriend Janet Van Dyne who would become the Wasp and those two would join and become original members of The Avengers. Another creation of Dr. Pym's is Ultron who later becomes The Avengers nemesis.

I know this is a bad quality video but here is the test footage from Ant Man released last year at Comic - Con Looks good to me!

The rise of Galactus and the Silver Surfer!

I'm a big Silver Surfer fan and I don't think I have done one blog on him yet. So here we go!!!!! Today I'm going to bring you Fantastic Four issue # 48 from 1966 . This was a three part issue that we comic nerds call The Galactus Trilogy. It ran from Issues 48 - 50. Why is this important? Well Marvel introduced us for the 1st time in this issue Galactus the devour of worlds , and Silver Surfer ( Norrin Radd ). Silver Surfer would go on to get his own comic book in August of 1968. Besides those two in this issue we of course have The Fantastic Four , The Inhumans and The Watcher. Hope you enjoy this great issue and the beginning of some great Marvel characters.

Batman Arkham Origins!

I'm excited Arkham  Origins release date has been confirmed its 10-25-13 and also a new trailer for the game is out. Boy does it look good. Here it is.

I can't wait to get my hands on this game. This game is going to be a prequel to the 1st two games.  I loved the first two in the Series which was Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. I have beaten both of those games and still find my self playing them for fun. The graphics are great the story is excellent! Here are a few pictures of Arkham City.

Here are a few pictures from Arkham Asylum

As you can see they look great and play great. The city had so many places to go and visit almost seemed endless. Looks like by watching the video we will get some more story lines with how Batman made friends and enemies. Also we will be getting new characters to fight against like DeathStroke , Deadshot , and Blackmask... I can't wait!!!

Avenger's Assemble!

Yes that's right Marvel's the Avengers are Assembling and coming to you on TV soon.

Yes on Sunday May 26th at 11:00 A.M. on channel Disney XD we will get a hour long show of Marvel's Avengers Assemble. It is a sneak peek of what is to come. The season premier will begin on July 7th. I can see from the above photo that we lost some characters from Earth's Mightiest Heroes like Ant-Man and WASP. They never get respect ,  and don't forget WASP did come up with the name the Avengers.At least we will get a new hero joining the group Falcon ( Sam Wilson ).

I'm sure they are introducing Falcon to this show so people can see whats to come next year when Captain America The Winter Soldier comes out. Yes he is in it. Lets hope they introduce some more characters Heroes and Villains . Here is the teaser trailer that just came out...

Looks good!!

Thank God it's Thorsday!

Yes it's Thorsday once again. So that means a blog devoted to Thor or related to Thor.

Today I thought I would give a little back ground on Malekith the Accursed. He is the upcoming villain in Thor 2 - The Dark World which comes out on November 8 , 2013.

Malekith the Accursed is being played by Christopher Eccleston.

That of course is the comic Malekith. Here is what he looks like in the film.

Malekith the Accursed 1st appeared in Marvel comics in Thor issue # 344 in 1984.

He is the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. He is usually an ally of Loki and Surtur. He has the ability to use teleportation , casting magic , and the ability to change shape and appearance of objects. He once also had the Casket of Ancient Winters which of course was in the 1st film. So with no further delay here is the first issue he was in. He comes in on page 12. Enjoy!!!
