Dr. Doom

dr.doom 1Dr. Doom, like many villains or some heroes, started with tragic beginnings. Doom lost his mother from a dealing gone wrong with the devil Mephisto and his father was lost in a grieving attempt to save his mother. Because the tragedy stemming from supernatural forces, Doom heavily indulged in learning science and magic in attempts to save his mother’s soul. Dr. Doom’s desire to gain more knowledge and power consumed him to the point where his actions took a villainous side than heroic. Because of this, Dr. Doom had many run ins with super teams such as The Fantastic Four and the Avengers, stopping his plans of domination.

dr doom 2Dr. Doom’s intellect level is in comparison with Lex Luthor, Reed Richards, Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark and even Dr. Strange in various degrees. Dr. Doom has many accomplishments and failures in his conquest of rulership. He has even been able to have the Infinity Gauntlet in his possession. Thanos also felt he was worthy of the Infinity Gauntlet as well, even though he failed its power.

dr.doom 2Dr. Doom has made his appearance on-screen with The Fantastic Four , Rise of the Silver Surfer and the 2015 Fantastic Four. Dr. Doom appeared to be the main villain for each of the Fantastic Four movies. Each film showed small portions of Dr. Doom’s potential as a menacing super villain. With the 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four, Dr. Doom took on a different origin in power. He also took on different look and array of powers, completely erasing any signs of humanity. With these big changes to the character and storyline, the film took a big lost to its ratings and loyalty to comic fans. Are the current adaptions of Dr. Doom the last of his on screen appearances or can movie producer revive and correct his character development?

Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

171183Hal Jordan is the first human to become apart of the Green Lantern Corps. Hal Jordan then became one of the greatest Green Lanterns next to Sinestro, who later became his biggest rival. Hal Jordan is also a member of the famous super team Justice League of America. The Green Lantern Corps is very similar to the Nova Corps of Marvel Comics. They both are a police force type militia created to protect life in the universe. Which Corps do you think is greater between the two?..

green lantern 6Hal Jordan was worthy of the Green Lantern ring because of his willpower and fearlessness. These qualities also helped him overcome his father’s death, then later becoming an excellent pilot in the Air Force. Fighter Pilots in today’s world would also need willpower to overcome fear in combat situations. The fear of heights, high speeds, missiles and even the high possibility of death during missions.

green lantern 1Those who experience success in any field can be compared to the concept of a Green Lantern officer. Willing a dream into existence takes concentrated focus and overcoming the fear of failure. Look around in our daily lives. Everything is a idea ranging from one individual to several. For instance, a vehicle, bridge, or whichever device used to read THIS blog post, is a physical construct of a designer’s imagination. His or her willpower is needed to take action to make the idea come to fruition. The officer of the Green Lantern Corps must keep his or her concentration at peak performance so that the energy constructs of the power ring will remain strong and unbreakable…

green lantern 9The Green Lantern transitioned from the comic books to different forms of entertainment. This includes the crossover video game: Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe,  the cartoon : Green Lantern the Animated Series, and animated movie: Green Lantern First Flight. Do you think the live action movie was a success? The film gave comic fans fantastic CG visuals of the character and powers at play, but was the actor Ryan Reynolds a good choice? Let’s consider Ryan has played in three Marvel Comic films: X-MEN Origins Wolverine,  Blade Trinity, Deadpool. Will Ryan’s comedic style fit in with the newly established dark theme DC Comics has brought to the movie screen?

Dark Phoenix

dark phoenix 1Dark Phoenix is among the most dangerous female villains in the comic book universe. Dark Phoenix is the evil embodiment of Phoenix Force, with Jean Grey as it’s host. Dark Phoenix wanted to separate everything connecting Jean Grey to her former life so destroying the cosmos would come with ease. Battling the Dark Phoenix is a suicide mission for anyone trying to stop her. Attacking the mind of the host is the best chance in stopping such a force, as done by Professor X.IMG_20150211_102839The Phoenix Force is similar to DC Comic entity Parallax. When Hal Jordan became the host, he displayed much of his dark side as Jean did under such power. Cosmic entities merging directly to a humanoid host, amplifies the powers of the host at immeasurable levels, making them god like. The Phoenix Entity was even split apart to inhabit different hosts at once, creating the Phoenix Five. This formation has a similar function to any Lantern Corps.IMG_20150211_100327Dark Phoenix has made the silver screen with the X-Men 3 The Last Stand. Dark Phoenix is portrayed by Famke Janssen, who played Jean Grey throughout the X-Men movie series. What is your take on the image of Dark Phoenix? She didnt seem like the out of control Dark Phoenix who reign destruction in the cosmos but more like a darker Jean Grey. Was that the best performance of Dark Phoenix or could movie producers have done more to show the power of such a dark entity…Is it possible that Dark Phoenix can be recruited into the Red Lantern Corps?! What would become of Jean Grey if she harbors the Phoenix Force, wielding the Red Power Ring?! To Be Continued….

Thor: Ragnarok Movie Review!!

Ragnarok is the third movie for Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The events of Ragnarok takes place years after the Battle with Ultron, which explains Thor and The Hulk‘s absence from Civil War. Ragnarok produced $427 million worldwide its opening weekend, making it the top Thor movie among the three. The first two films took on a darker tone, with heavy elements of Norse Mythology. Ragnarok looked more like a Guardian of the Galaxy theme, with the bright colors and constant humor.

From different the comic publications to film animations like Hulk vs , a fight between Thor and The Hulk is something the fans love to see. In the first Avengers movie, we see the two characters battle fists before becoming “horseplaying” friends. In Ragnarok, Thor and The Hulk really battle it out in a gladiator style arena. The Hulk ultimately becomes the winner to this bout, finally bringing a mutual respect between the two fighters.

Hela became the film’s main protagonist, followed by Surtur, the bringer of Ragnarok. In the comics, Hela is said to be Loki’s daughter, where in this film, Odin is the father. She fought by his side defeating the nine realms and help built his empire. Odin feared her growing power and locked her away, with his life force as the seal. Upon Odin’s death, Hela was released, destroyed Asgard’s forces, then claiming herself the new ruler of Asgard. In the end Hela was destroyed when Surtur was reborn. Do you think Hela was killed or will she appear for revenge in the Infinity Wars?

The concepts of World War Hulk is used in this film as well. According to the comics, The Hulk is exiled from Earth by the Illuminati.  In the cinematic version, The Hulk left Earth with the quinjet thus coming to the planet Sakaar. It wasn’t fully explained how the jet left Earth’s orbit and traveled across the cosmos to the trash planet. Instead of being treated as a gladiator slave, The Hulk was living like a champion, in such a way he wanted to stay instead of returning to Earth. The Hulk gained more of his intelligence and speech. Even though on a level of a young child, Hulk is able to communicate with Thor and somewhat control his urges for rage. What are your thoughts of this Hulk? Do you think this film took away from his savagery?

Loki makes his return in Ragnarok, after seemingly meeting his end in The Dark World film. Loki fights alongside Thor to save Asgard, even though at times he has the impulse to double cross Thor. Loki is responsible for bringing Surtur back to life with the Eternal Flame, which was locked away in The Vault. Loki caught sight of the Tesseract ( space gem) he once had, do you think he claimed it once again? Dr. Strange made an appearance in this film, connecting with Thor’s cameo appearance in his feature film. Dr. Strange easily trapped Loki in a void where he was seemingly falling forever, but how is this possible? Isn’t Loki much more powerful than Dr. Strange? Being a Frost Giant and Asgardian, Loki physically is close to the gods and his mystic arts would be levels above Dr. Strange. Would do you think would win in a battle between Loki and Dr. Strange??

Mjolnir was destroyed by Hela, having Thor believe he couldn’t channel his power without it. Odin informed Thor that the hammer purpose was to help focus his energy, not the source of his power. He first noticed this with his battle against the Hulk, then later with his last fight against Hela. Raiden is also known as the God of Thunder and Lighting. Some fans believe Raiden may have chance against the Asgardian with his profound martial arts mastery. Raiden trained using his powers without the aid of an enchanted weapons. One major pitfall for Raiden is that his powers are limited depending on the realm he enters, where with Thor, his powers are boundless. His Asgardian anatomy will allow him to heal faster than Raiden in this battle, or even taking little damage. Which warrior do you think will be the victim of a fatality?

Ultron

new ultronUltron is among the artificial intelligent beings of science fiction thrillers, which is a computerized intelligence that rejects its programming after becoming self aware. The system would then eliminate human beings because humans are viewed as a threat to its evolution. Ultron has gone through many upgrades to reach  his “perfect form”. Ultron is the first to be completely constructed in adamantium as part of his design enhancements. Ultron can control computer interfaces, the human mind and even the alien race Phalanx. ageultron2013009_molina_02_1Henry Pym created Ultron among his many experiments, but this creation was equipped with Pym’s very own consciousness, enabling Ultron experience human emotion. Choosing hate, Ultron hatred for Pym is because his existence was made possible by an “imperfect ” lifeform. In the film The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was described that Tony Stark was responsible for the creation of Ultron. Ultron in turn was suppose to be the creator of Vision but on film, it was Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Thor responsible for the creation of the android._3Ultron interface is similar to the Skynet Interface System. When threaten with destruction, the two systems would create robotic soldiers ( terminators / ultronbots) to defend, contain or annihilate the threat to its source. Over time, the Skynet systems upgraded its robotic soldiers to cyborgs, equipping them with human tissue for disguise. This tactic is used to help infiltrate and eliminate the Resistance. Similarly, Ultron wanted to destroy The Avengers from within so he created the android Vision, but just like Ultron’s need to discard his set program, Vision broke free from Ultron’s control to join and help The Avengers take down the corrupted A.I, just like the T-101 or T-H cyborgs joining the Resistance to take down Skynet. ultron transformers

Ultron’s objectives is to evolve, gain universal knowledge, destroy humanity, become omnipotent. What if Ultron gained control of Vector Sigma? If this happened, could Ultron then enhanced his robotic armor to transform into vehicles of disguise like the Transformers? Would Ultron be a threat to Cybertron that the two opposing forces must join together to defeat this foe or would they fall victim to Ultron’s new upgrade?..Comic Multiverse fan favorite artwork of Ultron goes to the DeviantArt artist DeyVarah.

The Avengers is the top respected team in this cinematic universe and Peter seems to do what he can to impress and be accepted by Tony Stark.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One became another successful movie for Lucasfilms and Walt Disney Studios. Star Wars continually brings in big bucks for their films and merchandise, being among the top sci films of our generation. To date, Rogue One stands at $789.7m grossed from the budget of $200m. This film focuses on the time period where rebel forces are gathering against the Empire. Their mission is to cripple the Empire’s strength, by destroying their new super weapon: The Death Star. The tone and theme of this story appeared more dark in nature without losing the essence and story line of the original  Star War episodes.

What was unique about this film was the use of CGI effects to revive General Tarkin and  Princess Leia to the present day cinema. Cameos of the rebel squadran leaders was also tied in the story, stunning fans on how well this standalone film ties with A New Hope. With new technology that cinema has tapped into, new current actors are able to share a movie screen with actors of the past. Shortly after the release of Rogue One, Carrie Fisher the actress who portrayed Princess Leia passed away from unknown medical conditions. Fortunately, Carrie was able to revive her role once again as an older Leia in The Force Awakens. May her memory stay alive forever in the Force…

Darth Vader making an appearance in this film was a favorite for Star Wars fans across the world. In the film, we see Vader submerging in a bacta tanka, continually treating his body from the extensive damaged he sustained years ago. Vader boarding the Alliance ship was among the favorable light saber fight scenes in Star Wars history. Even though Vader has two small scenes, it was enough to make you fiend for more battles scenes with the dark lord. In that case, will Star Wars have more standalone films in the future that bridge each of the original episodes? So, what was your take on the film? Do you think this film was visually better than The Force Awakens?

Loki vs Dr. Doom

dr doom vs loki

The Asgardian Frost Giant Prince vs The Ruler of Latveria is a topic of speculation among comic fans. These two villains are matched up because first they both have a desire to obtain rulership of Asgard and the power it contains. Dr. Doom is looked as the supreme mortal who can outwit and obtain powers from cosmic beings or sources. Loki is a lower level god who is only successful in dominating beings who are mentally and physically weaker than himself. In this case, the bridge between Loki and Dr. Doom is relatively small….

Dr. Doom’s greatest power is his mind. Since his youth,  he desired to acquire knowledge and power for himself and he succeeded. Dr. Doom is considered to be one of the most powerful minds in the Marvel Universe. As such, he can create any device needed to give himself the upper hand in any situation, even to rival the technical genius of Batman, Iron Man and Reed Richards. Throughout the comics, Dr. Doom’s taste for power has been taken to extraordinary heights: becoming wielder of the Infinity Gauntlets and taking on cosmos powers such as Galactus and Silver Surfer. Dr. Doom’s downfall lies with attaining too much power. His arrogance blinds him creating more setbacks than failures.

dr.doom vs loki 1

Loki is also known to have a genius level intellect as well as being a master sorcerer in his realm of Asgard. Since Loki is of Asgard and The Frost Giants, he is physically superior to Dr. Doom. Loki has a desire to acquire more power like Dr. Doom, but his child like manner wouldn’t allow him to have a defined purpose for his power other than challenging his half brother Thor. This results in his defeat and punishment by his father Odin. Loki’s arrogance as a higher being blinds the fact that mere mortals could beat him at his own game every time.

loki 1

In this battle, Loki is more than likely to underestimate the power of Dr. Doom because he is mortal. Dr. Doom is a strategist and mentally would dominate Loki. If need be, could take over the body Loki, if physically beaten.  With the battle history of the two villains, you would likely find a DoomBot in battle than the real Doom. Loki more than likely control a being such as the Destroyer to fight the battle for him or even the HulkWho do you think would win in such a battle?

Nekron

nekron2

As leader of the Black Lantern Corps, Nekron is among the most powerful, cosmic beings of the DC Universe. Nekron is the most powerful because he is the cosmic entity of death, the supreme ruler of the undead. All living beings face their end in death for the exception of those who posses immortality. If anyone is far dangerous than Atrocitus, it would be Nekron. If Nekron was able to recruit the Justice League to his Corps, what do you think would happen if he crossed into the Marvel Universe and recruited the zombies? Is it possible that Nekron could control Dracula just the same as his other undead hoards?

nekron

 Comic fans suggest that Spawn be apart of the Black Lantern Corps. Spawn and Nekron would be in battle for the rights to the Black Lantern Corps for Spawn also has supernatural powers over the undead as king of hell. Would Spawn be more powerful than Nekron since he is now at Omega Level? What type of power would Spawn wield with the combined strength of a black power ring and his necroplasmic based armor?

nekron2

 Nekron and Mistress Death share similar roles in their own universes. Mistress Death showed a liking to Deadpool and rare occasion Thanos. Do you believe Nekron is worthy of Mistress Death complete attention? What would be the story of the cosmos if these two powerful entities joined forces?
