Emma Frost

wpid-emma-frost-1.png.png

Emma Frost is one of many mutants who has used their powers for personal gain in the world.  Emma Frost used her powers to make herself wealthy and successful in every area she found interest. Now just think, how many people in the world would do the same as Emma Frost? What would you do?

Her beauty and abilities attracted the attention of the X-Men and the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club. Emma was invited to the X-Men to help understand her power and to protect humans and mutants as a hero. As a member of the Inner Circle, Emma’s powers are utilized as instruments to influence the higher society that controls the world. This is the reason why there is debate that Emma is a hero or villain.emma frost 3 Emma Frost underwent a second mutation, her diamond form. In this form, Emma can only be destroyed with a diamond bullet. When not in diamond form, Emma is a powerful telepath on par with Xavier and Jean Grey. Emma and Jean Grey have tension with each other because both are Omega Level telepaths that fell in love with Cyclops. Not only that both females became worthy hosts to the Phoenix Force.emma frost 4 Emma Frost has come to the movie screen in the movies X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men First Class. Even though her abilities and powers were displayed with unique style and imagery, her timeline was far off. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Emma was a young teenager escaping  Stryker’s island with an older Professor Xavier (not to mention Xavier is not disabled). In The First Class, Emma was an older woman, battling younger Charles Xavier and younger Eric Lehnsherr. Did movie producers not realize the mistake in Emma Frost movie timeline?

Black Panther 2018

 

Black Panther will finally get his solo release February 16 2018. Black Panther made his intro to the cinematic world in Avengers: Civil War. In the end of that film, T’Challa brought Captain America and Bucky back in his home of Wakanda.This film appears to be focused in Wakanda where the conflict presides. Andy Serkis will replay his character from Age of Ultron, which will have a more significant role in the Black Panther, bringing his story full circle between the two films. Will this 2018 feature be the beginning of a possible standalone series or will this character somehow be involved with the upcoming threat that awaits Marvel heroes in the Infinity War?

 

 

Doctor Strange

doctor-strange

Doctor Strange made his first live appearance on the movie screen with big success, racking in $496.7 worldwide. The movie is a modern day version from the original comic book timeline. With a few story changes and excellent computer graphics, this movie brought reminiscent of the films Inception and The Matrix. Actor Benedict  Cumberbatch was chosen to play the Sorcerer Supreme. How well do you think Benedict played his role?

docstrange

Dr. Strange is similar to Dr. Fate of DC Comics. Their roles normally consist in aiding their world heroes against enemies from supernatural dimensions. The film Dr. Strange has come apart of the path leading to Infinity War movies. In the comics, Dr. Strange is among the major players in the war against Thanos.

gggg

Thor made his cameo in the mid credits of the film, aligning himself with Strange to help find his father with the aid of his scheming brother Loki. This could be a hint that Strange maybe a possible cameo in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. If so, how will Dr. Strange be utilized? Do you think Dr. Strange is ready to take on the forces of Loki?

strange1

One major change in the Dr. Strange story was having the time stone embedded as the Eye of Agamotto. Comic films have become different from their comic book blueprints over time, all to make the cinematic world a whole new universe. Five stones down, one more to go. What upcoming film will hold the last stone? Has the last stone been in plain sight the entire time? We will wait and see…

SpiderMan: Far From Home

SpiderMan is back again! The last time fans saw the wallcrawler was when he died in the hands of IronMan in Infinity War. This film has fans wondering: When does this movie fit in the MCU timeline? From what we see in the footage, SpiderMan has two new suits, and it appears he has three villains to content with: SandMan, Mysterio and HydroMan. This films looks exciting and fans can’t wait to see what’s in store for them! Stay tuned for the movie review!

Venom

venom 4

Venom is apart of an alien race of symbiotes, when bonded with a host, becomes a powerful warrior taking on the personality and physical attributes of its host. What makes these symbiotes seem villainous is when they bond with a host, the symbiote would feed off the chemicals released from the host’s body, chemicals which are released when emotions like anger is triggered. Adrenaline is the chemical symbiotes primarily feed on. If the adrenaline isn’t released in a desired amount for consumption, the symbiote would find another host or dominate the mind and body of its current host( which is usually a superhuman) causing them to engage in extreme activities that would increase the adrenaline levels, eventually leaving the host depleted. Only way to rid oneself of these parasitic symbiotes is by high pitch sound waves or intense flame.

venom 7Spiderman was a perfect bond for the symbiote because as a hero with superpowers, daily crime fighting keeps his adrenaline levels at a high rate and for extended periods of time. Since Spiderman was Venom’s first host, every host after was able to have the powers of Spiderman. Venom became a nemesis to Spiderman after bonding with its next host Eddie Brock. Eddie had a deep hatred toward Spiderman, a hatred in which the symbiote fed on and acted upon as its own.

IMG_20150114_064904The Venom symbiote also has the ability to reproduce. Its offspring bonded with a serial killer becoming the villainous Carnage. Carnage in turn had an offspring called Toxin, which Carnage despised because it believed Toxin would be more powerful than itself and Venom. Eddie Brock eventually rid himself of the Venom symbiote, but small remnants of the symbiote bonded with Brock’s white blood cells creating the symbiote Anti-Venom. The Anti-Venom symbiote does not dominate its host like other symbiotes but does become active and protects its host when Venom or other symbiotes are present. The Anti-Venom symbiote operates like the white bloods in the human body which help defend and cure the body of viruses and infections.

movie venomVenom was featured in the live action film Spiderman 3, much to the disapproval of comic fans. Most comic fans expected a bulky powerful Venom as seen in cartoon and comic book, but instead received a smaller grade Venom who wasn’t as threatening as comic fans were raised to believe. The Spiderman franchise was rebooted in 2012 with better graphics and story line. Will Venom also get a recreated look? A look that comic fans would love and recognize as the true Venom?….

Atrocitus

Atrocitus made his introduction to the comic world in the Blackest Night comic series. The Red Lantern Corps is the third strongest corps next to the White and Black Lantern Corps. After losing his family to the Manhunters, Atrocitus was consumed by anger and rage, which fueled his revenge against the Guardians of the Universe. As leader of the Red Lantern Corps, recruiting soldiers wouldn’t be difficult. Many characters throughout all comic universes has gone through intense states of rage

After the Blackest Night introduction, Atrocitus and his Red Lantern Corps made a quick transition to television in the Green Lantern Animated Series Cartoon. This is the third Lantern Corps that has made a live appearance along with the Blue Lantern Corps. Will Atrocitus ever make it to the movie screen or was the animated cartoon series the first and last time comic fans will see the Leader and Master of rage?..

What if….. Atrocitus went too far to make sure his Corps was the most dominant among them all. What if Atrocitus recruited powerful Sith Lords or even Dark Phoenix herself? Can Atrocitus and his fantasy members be stopped?! To Be Continued.

The Uncanny X-Men

xmen1

The X-Men is a super team in the Marvel Universe, the sector of the Marvel Universe where humans are born with a gene mutation that causes supernatural powers. These supernatural powers created fear throughout the world, but for good reason. Mutants such as Magneto, feel mutants should be in control of the Earth because of their powers make them godlike over the humans. The X-Men are protectors of the innocent (human and mutants) against the villainous mutants and the government.

the xmen

The X-Men was formed by Professor Xavier, who had a dream to help and protect mutants from the world. After years of study, Professor X turned his home into a school where he could teach mutants to control their powers. His combat team is led by Cyclops and Storm, even Wolverine is found in the forefront of them both, for his combat experience exceeds the whole team and the Professor. Jean Grey is the Professor’s right hand for the fact both are both are omega mutant levels and in the event the Professor is incapable to use his powers at hand, Jean is the telepathic backup. Over the years, the X-Men ranks have changed many times like the Avengers, either through new recruits or old members become solo heroes.

xmen film

The X-Men has accumulated a film series that outranks all comic movies. In this film series, fans can see origins of the team and even individual film stories like Wolverine and Deadpool. Bryan Singer is the director responsible for the majority of the films in the series. Even though the X-Men became very popular on screen, many fans feel that a lot of the cinematic timeline of the series was incorrect and not completely congruent with the blueprints of the comic books. Do you think the X-Men movies need a complete reboot or will a reboot taint the established legacy of characters and the actors that play them like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Movie Review!!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the biggest movie of 2017 with total worldwide sales over 1.2 billion. The Force Awakens had similarities to A New Hope and the Last Jedi wasn’t too far from having the same theme as The Empire Strikes Back. For example, Rey going to Luke on a secluded planet to train in the Force was similar with Luke’s and Yoda‘s relationship. Leia was making breakthroughs in her understanding of The Force in both movies. A battle scene surrounded in an icy environment with AT-AT Walkers are in both stories. Most importantly, the main premise of each film was to pull the new Force user into the fold of the dark side. Despite the similarities between the older episodes and the new, The Last Jedi turned out to be an amazing film!

At the end of The Force Awakens, Luke Skywalker makes his cameo, hinting that Rey will be his next and last student. Just as the Jedi of the past, Luke lived in solitude on a distant planet, fine tuning his powers in the Force. In this film, we’ve seen Luke’s growth in power since Return of the Jedi. Luke could manipulate the Force in such a way, he could astral project himself across the galaxy. In the battle with Kylo Ren, the audience believed Luke was actually there fighting against his former student and his forces. Obi Wan Kenobi was Luke’s mentor in life and death for three films. Now that Luke has become one with the Force, will he appear as a Force Spirit in the next films?

Supreme Leader Snoke has appeared in the flesh for this film! From what we have seen, Snoke’s power rivals Darth Sidious. Snoke’s relationship with Kylo Ren is much different than Vader and Sidious. Snoke is a master who is verbally abusive to Kylo, whereas Sidious had a friendship with Vader since his youth, before the dark side. In the end, both students slayed their masters but Kylo, stayed alive only to take the place as the new Supreme Leader. This was something that Vader wanted; to slay his master and make himself head of the Empire. Why did Snoke have a short screen time? With the big mystery on his character since The Force Awakens, fans expected to at least get the origins of this character and where he lands in the timeline during the reign of Sidious and Vader. Rey began her training with Luke with surprising results. Rey’s skills with the lightsaber improved, she split cliffs apart and even levitated multiple boulders at once. Rey became an important asset the Dark Lord wanted to get his hands on. Her effect on the Force is among the strongest of that time. Because of this, much like Vader did with Luke, Kylo offered Rey a place by his side as an apprentice to rule the galaxy…

Since the Empire Strikes Back, Leia was able to sense the ones she cared about through The Force. In this film, the bridge of Leia’s ship was destroyed, hurling everyone into space. Using the Force, Leia awakened from her rapidly freezing state and glided through space back to her ship’s airlock. This is a power never before seen in film. Finn has returned from his injuries he sustained from Kylo Ren and finds himself ultimately battling against his former commanding officer Captain Phasma. Phasma still has the objective to end Finn’s life for betraying the Order, only to meet her seemingly demise. What is unclear in the previous film was what happened to Phasma after Han and Finn used her for information?  Anakin grew up with his droid companions R2-D2 and C3P0 during his time with The Jedi. These droid played the same role in Luke’s life when he entered into the ways of the Jedi. The bond between man and droid continues strong with BB-8 and Poe Dameron. They are not among the Jedi though, Poe just happens to be the best pilot among The Resistance. Who do you this is the best pilot among Poe, Anakin and Luke?

The film was exciting and action packed for the most part. The question will always remain: Would the Star Wars franchise be any different if George Lucas stayed on board? What were your thoughts for this film? Will this be the last of the Star Wars episodes or will more movies come into creation only to bridge the episodes together like Rogue One?

Daredevil vs Batman

batman vs daredevil

Daredevil vs Batman is among the popular crossover topics discussed by comic fans. This popularity influenced the creation of the intercompany crossover comics: Eye For An Eye and King of New York. Bruce and Matt are the sons of murdered parents which inspired them to later become avengers to the innocent. Both heroes have clothed themselves in a frightful image to strike fear in the criminal underworld. They have many similarities and differences which makes a crossover battle interesting. Maybe one day, we will see this crossover in live animation like Batman V Superman….

daredevil batman

Marvel Comics Hell’s Kitchen is no difference than the Hell’s Kitchen of our world. This section of New York includes low-income housing, violence and gangs. It is a living nightmare or hell as some may see it, so choosing the symbol of a devil seems fitting for Matt Murdock.  One major difference between Daredevil and Batman is that Daredevil has intentions on killing his enemies like Bullseye. Even though Bullseye managed to survive death, this categorized Daredevil as an anti-hero. Daredevil may not directly kill someone but he won’t save them from death either.

daredevil vs batman

Gotham City is a fictional city in the DC Universe. Gotham City is filled with much corruption, ranging from politicians down to the local street gangs. This city has tall gothic architectural style buildings and statues. With this environment Batman strikes the likeness of Dracula. Batman refrains from killing criminals even though his methods of intimidation makes a person feel as if death were close. In the end, most criminal are handed over to Gotham Police Department or sent to Arkham Asylum. 

daredevil vs batman mm

Having superpowers gives Daredevil an edge on Batman. His radar sense gives him excellent equilibrium with his martial arts. With his radar sense, Daredevil could hone in on his opponent before even reaching them. This also makes it hard for his enemies or opponents to hide from him.  His super reflexes allows Daredevil to avoid most projectile attacks, especially that of a speeding bullet or a flying batarang. His superpower is also his weakness for too much noise at high frequency could overwhelm Daredevil.

daredevil vs batman nn

Since Batman has no superpowers, he must use his tactical weapons as an extension of himself. Batman’s utility belt is his armory and archive ( archive meaning the utility belt has gadgets made to battle against superhumans he has studied and learned from in the past). Batman has won most of his battles with his arsenal. In the case of Daredevil, it wouldn’t take Batman much time to figure out Daredevil’s abilities and the weaknesses, weaknesses he would take full advantage of it. One blast from Batman’s sonic devastator Daredevil would be immobilized.

batman vs daredevil 3

Even though this is a battle between the two characters, heroes always benefit from each other instead of fighting. What if Batman enhanced Daredevil’s costume to make it similar to his own? For instance, Batman could re-create Daredevil’s mask to the point where it could dampen harmful incoming sound, eliminating his weaknesses of overwhelming sound waves. Batman could also create a utility belt for Daredevil. It’s main function is a sonic receiver and transmitter. This high-powered utility belt could work in unison with the mask. It could boost Daredevil’s radar sense to the point where the entire city of New York can be viewed from one location, much like Superman scanning over Earth with his super hearing. Also Batman could create flame throwing gauntlets, which main purpose is to conceal Daredevil’s entry and exit from enemy sight, a theatrical tactic. The outside of the costume could be made in a special Nomex M5 material which would stand against intense heat while the inside become cooler, preventing Matt from burning or overheating while standing in flames…

daredevil nightwing

Even though Daredevil would be eventually be outmatched by Batman, many fans think: Well how about a battle with Nightwing?! It wouldn’t be much of a battle for Nightwing because he was the first trained by Batman, trained so well Nightwing took on the role of Batman for a time. The same result would happen to Daredevil if he battled Nightwing. Because of the radar sense, Daredevil would come second to the arsenal might of Batman or Nightwing.  Do you think Daredevil would fit in perfect with the heroes of the batcave?? Do you think Matt Murdock could be an excellent Batman?

 

Sabretooth

sabretooth

Unlike the heroics of his mutant healing factor kin Wolverine, Sabretooth‘s thirst for blood is that of a wild savage beast. His mutation altered his physical appearance, giving him features of a carnivorous animal. Out of fear from his unstable parents, Sabretooth suffered a cruel and abusive childhood. Because of this, Sabretooth became a mentally unstable, feral beast that kills mercilessly and brutally for personal satisfaction. His acts of serial killings categorized him as one of Marvel Comics most dangerous villains.

sabretoothdd

Because of his mutation, Sabretooth is an excellent survivalist. His mutant abilities are similar to the predatory animals of the forest. He can survive in subzero temperatures, track down prey items via super enhanced senses: scent and night vision. Just imagine if humans had these animalistic abilities. We could live efficiently in the wilderness without the common worries like lack of fire materials to cook meat, heating, light, sense of direction or location. Let’s not forget, the healing factor would protect against all potential threats against the body internally or externally, giving humans extended lifespans….

sabertooth king

Sabretooth made his live appearances in X-Men and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Many comics fans would agree that Tyler Mane‘s portrayal of Sabretooth was a better choice than Liev Schreiber, mainly due to physical appearance. Sabretooth is known to be physically superior to Wolverine as shown throughout the comics and in the 2000 X-Men film. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Sabretooth was overpowered by the adamantium enhanced Wolverine, which brought confusion among comic fans. Who do you think was the better Sabretooth?
