Black Widow

wpid-black-widow-1.png.png

 Black Widow is classified under the categories of hero and villain because of her affiliations with Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D. Because of her training in the Soviet Union, Black Widow is one of the most skilled hand-to-hand combatants, and is quite possibly the most skilled espionage agent alive. Much like Captain America, Black Widow’s biology is fused with a variant of the Super Soldier Serum making her superhuman in all body functions and senses. Do you think Black Widow is on the same combatant level as Deathstroke? Are her skills in espionage on par with Solid Snake?

Despite working with different world agencies, good or bad, Black Widow has put her abilities to good use saving the world with The Avengers.  Black Widow in the end is a rogue warrior. Because of this, she has been in a professional and romantic relationship with heroes she’s worked with like Hawkeye and Daredevil. This is similar in the DC Comics with Wonder Woman‘s interest in Batman and Superman.

Black Widow has appeared on the big screen in Iron Man 2, Avengers 1 and 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Who do you think would have been a better Black Widow between Scarlett Johansson and  Angelina Jolie? Angelina’s roles in Tomb Raider and Salt match perfectly with Black Widow’s combat feats instead of Johansson’s dramatic roles like The Prestige. Are movie producers putting in real effort envisioning actor/character matches or do you think some movies are just rushed into the making without complete visionary research?

Daredevil

daredevil1

Daredevil is among the vigilantes in the Marvel Universe who chose a path to protect the innocent, mainly based upon an early traumatic experience. Daredevil’s mental strength and determination stems from his faith within the Roman Catholic Church. Taking on the underworld as a blind crime fighter, means having a strong and fearless mentality. Mixing this with his enhanced abilities, Matt became the living meaning of the word daredevil. As a daytime lawyer, Daredevil can stay connected to the crime world at a great degree.

daredevil2

Despite being blind, Daredevil’s training over his remaining four hyper senses allows him to have full body and sensory control. He can accomplish acrobatic feats like Spiderman, with perfect balance and equilibrium. What makes Spiderman better is that his agility is heighten because of his superpowers. With enhanced sense of smell and hearing, Daredevil’s abilities is similar to Wolverine‘s when locating criminals. The difference is, Wolverine’s senses are more animalistic in nature due to his mutation, which makes him completely superior when tracking down targets, especially at great distances.

daredevil5

Daredevil chose the symbol of the Devil to help leave a fearful impression on injustice in Hell’s Kitchen. Is Matt Murdock in a constant state of moral confliction, when masking himself as a devil, and being a strong believer in the Catholic faith?

daredevilm

Daredevil has come to life with the 2003 live action movie. Also, Netflix has created an original series of the character’s beginning in crime fighting. As for the film, casting for characters have received negative views from comic fans. Many feel Ben Affleck is not a perfect choice for a superhero role. What do you think? Will his new role as Batman prove comic fans wrong? What comic fans find interesting about Daredevil is his similarities to Batman. Who do you think would win if they were to battle? To Be Continued….

Aquaman

aquaman

Arthur Curry aka Aquaman is a powerful member of the Justice League and King of The Sea. Much like Wonder Woman, Aquaman can be associated with greek mythology with his use of Poseidon’s Trident. The Trident grants Aquaman additional powers outside his Atlantean strength like flight, hydrokinesis and weather manipulation over aquatic areas. This power addition is similar with Thor, who also gains additional powers with his use of his hammer Mjolnir.

aquaman 2

In the comic world, there are characters with similar powers like The Flash and Quicksilver, Hawkeye and Green Arrow and Aquaman and Namor the Sub-Mariner. These two characters are so similar its hard to tell the difference between the two. Since both characters are half human, they are much stronger than rest of the Atlantean population. Both characters wield the Trident of Poseidon but major difference is without the Trident, Namor posses the power of flight while flight would be an addition to Aquaman with the Trident.

aquaman3

We have seen an early version of an Aquaman with Kevin Costner in Waterworld. Only difference is that The Mariner was not a meta human, more of being the first human that has evolve to the world becoming completely water. The vision of an Aquaman will return in the Justice League with Jason Momoa, as the actor portraying the King of Atlantis. Will Aquaman become a big enough feature on the Justice League to receive his solo film or will he become unpopular on film like his popularity in the comics?

Captain America

new captain america

Captain America is a symbol for courage and justice in the Marvel Universe. The Super Soldier Serum allowed Captain America to survive through time and become leader of the super team The Avengers. Captain America is constantly molding himself to the new ways of the world. His legacy of the past, reminds the people of today, fearless heroism of one’s country. Captain America finds himself at odds with Iron Man on different occasions, leading to a Civil War of ideals.

There are scientists across world looking for ways to extend life, find cures for diseases, and creating human enhancements. The Super Soldier Serum may not be fiction as portrayed. We live in the world of science. Human subject research has been going on ever since the medical field has been born. How else could we have medicines, vaccines, and even deadly biological weapons if they weren’t tested first?

The Super soldier serum would benefit a character like Batman, who has no superpowers. Most non super powered heroes have trained their bodies and skills to peak perfection. Before the Super Soldier Serum, Steve Rogers was frail and was considered unfit for duty in the US Army. If such a serum was taken by Batman, his physical condition would be greater than Captain America, since his physical condition is at its peak already….

batman4

Like many other characters, Captain America has made his transition from the comic book to major films. Captain America:The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, brought the character to life with excellent stories matching very similarly to the comics. Actor Chris Evans played multiple roles in the same comic movie universe, as Captain America and Human Torch. Does Chris changing characters distort the cinematic universe??

Spawn

new spawn

Spawn is an anti-hero in the Image Comics universe. Spawn is an anti-hero because of his violent and dark methods of bringing criminals to justice. Before becoming Spawn, Al Simmons was a highly respected government assassin. He later began questioning his purpose and immoral motives of his superiors which led to his own assassination. Al Simmons was transformed into a hellspawn general by his new superior Malebolgia, to led Hell’s Army against Heaven. Despite his previous role to Malebolgia, Spawn has even proved his honor and humanity to Heaven, thus taking on a hero image instead of his dark form.

spawn 1

Spawn is one of many comic characters to make it to the big screen with the 1997 New Line Cinema film. Do you think this movie needs a reboot? Become more updated with our time period? Will we ever get another Spawn film?!

What makes the Spawn movie successful among the other comic films is the creator himself: Todd McFarlane . Todd insures his fans are getting exactly what was expected from his comic book and not an altered version. STAY TRUE TO THE FANS! This is an important quality Todd McFarlane has. Todd has been actively involved with bringing his character from the drawing paper, all the way to directing and producing the featured film.

Spawn has even been involved in a crossover with the DC Universe, battling then teaming up with Batman. Many comic fans feel despite Batman’s resilient mind, he is no match for a supernatural power of Spawn, or even Dracula. Would Batman stand a better chance battling Spawn with the Sinestro Corps Power Ring?? To Be Continued…..

Spiderman

spiderman7

Spiderman is one of the most popular characters created in the Marvel Universe by Stan Lee. Spiderman is among a list of characters who acquired powers through a scientific accident. His DNA was reshaped to match that of a spider. Because of his popularity, it stand to reason for Spiderman to have a great number of villains to oppose him, much like Batman. Is this the reason Spiderman and Batman makes a great crossover story? 

piderman2

“I’m your friendly neighborhood Spiderman!” 

The slogan is true to its meaning. New York City is the central home for most Marvel characters. Spiderman fights crime alone but can be seen fighting along side of the Avengers and X-Men. Which of the super teams would you want to see Spidey cameo with on screen?

piderman4

Over the years, Spiderman has acquired multiple uniforms. Other than his original costume, fans began to favor the costume made by Tony Stark and the symbiote costume. Both uniforms are to enhance Spiderman’s superhuman abilities. Which uniform do you believe to be the best for Spiderman?

piderman3

Spiderman is one of the few characters to have a plethora of comic stories, television series then live action appearances. Like the Hulk,  Spiderman became upgraded  with the reboot movie: The Amazing Spiderman 1 and 2. Are reboots really necessary if fans get what they want the first time around? Which is your favorite Spidey film?

Thor

Thor

As Son of Odin, Thor is among the strongest heroes in the Marvel Universe. Thor can be compared to the saiyan prince Vegeta. Arrogance, head strong, battle thirsty and a once constant need to prove themselves worthy to be among the greatest warriors. Both characters come from royalty, which creates the arrogance and prideful personality that blinded both characters from their true potential and wisdom.

vegeta2

 Thor was exiled from Asgard to Earth to learn lessons in humility. While on Earth, Thor became a founding member of the super team The Avengers. Becoming a protector for the Earth helped Thor gain his respect back from his father and Asgard. Thor is a hero responsible for the citizens of Asgard as well as the people of Earth. Aquaman is also a hero that has duel roles. He is hero of Earth with the Justice League and he is also a King in his underwater world of Atlantis.

thor7

Thor is a great leader to his people of Asgard and admired by many. Being destined to become Lord of Asgard over his brother Loki, created tension between them. Their rivalry is similar to the story of Cain and Abel  in a sense of brotherly jealousy. Even though Loki is considered one of Thor’s greatest foes, Thor could never destroy his brother. Instead, Thor passes Loki up to Odin for judgement.

thor vs loki

If recruited to the Blue Lantern Corps, how powerful do you think Thor would become? Would he still need Mjolnir? Or would his constructs be more powerful than the weapon?

blue lantern thor

Thor has made his evolution to film like many other characters in the Marvel Universe. The 2011 film and the 2013 film brings Thor to life, with excellent special effects and intense action. Thor is also featured in The Avengers films 1 and 2, adding to his on screen appearances. Did Marvel Studios hit their mark when casting Chris Hemsworth as Thor?

One of many crossover hot topics is Thor vs Superman. Why? Both characters repectfully are the strongest warriors of their super teams. Who will win this match up or will this fight result in a draw? To be continued……

Goku

goku7

Goku is the greatest hero in the universe, arguably because he has sacrificed himself many times for his family and friends, but also defeating villains who are considered the worst in the cosmos. Fans across the world have argued on this topic, even debating on who would win in a match up between  Goku and Superman. No match is greater than his battles with his once rival and now friend Vegeta. With the power of Vegeta, Goku can become new warriors: Gogeta and VegitoWhich battle of Goku was your favorite? Goku mastered the saiyan forms, except for his Oozaru form.  Goku would be considered the first saiyan to reach the super saiyan levels without transforming into the Oozaru form, as described in the legendary super saiyan story. Now with his new training, Goku has reached the level of a god. Will this replace the super saiyan 4 level?

new gokudd

Goku always strive to become the best fighter possible. This a is key to his success, not only in a fictional standpoint, but in a realistic view point for us as well. For instance, in the world of health and fitness. Goku’s saiyan heritage allow him to train his body well beyond his limits. Doing several thousand reps of sit ups and push ups under heavy gravity, eating enormous amounts of food and heavy sleeping to nourish and replenish his body. If we were dedicated enough to health and fitness in a similar fashion as Goku, would we push our life expectancy even further to the point of possible immortality?

goku 8

Goku has come from the comic book to television cartoons, thanks to his creator Akira Toriyama. Some comic fans can agree that Akira can be ranked among the top comic book story writers like Stan Lee or Bob Kane. What’s unique about Goku is that the entire series of Dragonball, Dragonball Z , Dragonball Super to Dragonball GT is about his story. Sadly, but very disappointing, fans weren’t able to see their hero in a correct format.  Who really enjoyed the live action display: Dragonball Evolution?Are movie producers real fans of such works or was it a failure to have American movie producers create a movie from a Japanese franchise? What could be the best style for a live action film of Dragonball Z? An all CG movie or real people? Fans around the world must wait for the ” perfect ” Dragonball Z film to hit the big screen, but for how long?…..

Vegeta

vegetassgss

Prince Vegeta proudly flaunted the ruthlessness of his race. Under Frieza‘s rule, Vegeta destroyed many planets and killing millions of innocents without any mercy. Like most villains, Vegeta has failed at many of his self-serving goals which severed his potential to become greater. Throughout the years, Vegeta has grown stronger in power and slowing lettting go of harsh ways. Eventually settling down, raising a family, Vegeta learned the righteous morals in life. Finally ending his rivalry with Goku, Vegeta has also been able to keep up with him in the god levels of the saiyan. With this new power, Vegeta was able to bring his former master Frieza to his knees in defeat…

vegeta 45Vegeta developed his arrogant attitude from his place in royalty. Believing only the royal bloodline holds the key to greatest power ( saiyan of legend), Vegeta looked down upon lower class saiyan warriors like Goku. Even the low-class may have great strength potential to become as great or greater than royalty. If the Saiyans weren’t divided into social classes, then maybe that race would still exist….

vegeta 6Some fans believe Vegeta’s true potential was with his mastery of the Oozaru stage. Vegeta grew up believing a saiyan could only become super in the Oozaru stage. If this was so, Vegeta would have reached the level of Super Saiyan long ago, if his tail regenerated from his battle on Earth. Since Vegeta lost his tail, he had to learn how to acquire the super saiyan stage in humanoid form. There was many fights Vegeta could have used his great ape form. Instead of using the Final Flash on Cell as a desperate need to win, Vegeta transforms into a golden great ape?!😨😨

vegeta3Vegeta was not featured in Dragonball Evolution, to the relief of many fans 😰😰. Since Vegeta is a master of the Oozaru form, it only stands to reason that correct visuals would have been needed to capture Vegeta in his transformation stage. 🤔Is Dragonball Z too complex to become a movie? Should Dragonball Z become a live action movie or a complete CG movie like Avatar, Final Fantasy or even Beowulf🤔?

The Incredible Hulk

image

Through an accident with gamma radiation, Bruce Banner became a green behemoth with incredible power. Like most super heroes, The Hulk is considered one of the most wanted targets to the US Army. The Hulk’s strength is rated to be limitless because he becomes stronger with the level of his rage. Super teams such as The Avengers have a hard time stopping The Hulk head on….

Hulk was exiled from Earth, only to return as a super strong monster with revenge on his mind as the World War Hulk. Despite being viewed as a raging monster, Hulk has also been apart of Marvel’s greatest heroes to battle Thanos in The Infinity Gaunlet.

hulk 6

Wolverine and Thor are among many who has battled the Hulk in the comics, then later their bouts evolved to the animated film Hulk Vs. In the Old Man Logan comic book series, The Hulk finally met his end to Wolverine. Comic Multiverse as well many other blog sites, displays Hulk as being a favorite topic of discussion, especially when it comes down to crossover battles such as Hulk vs Superman or Hulk in the Red Lantern Corps. Very popular topics of discussion only to leave comic fans to think what if. Is the Incredible Hulk truly unstoppable?

hulk5

The Hulk has his two major films, the 2003 The Hulk and the reboot version 2008 The Incredible Hulk. The first film seem more of a test run with the creation of this character which was portrayed by Eric Bana. The 2008 film was a reboot with the help of Edward Norton. Now a new variation of the Hulk came in the 2012 and 2015 films of The Avengers which was portrayed by Mark Ruffalo. Which Hulk did you like the best on the big screen?
