Wonder Woman 2017

DC Comics is at a good pace creating feature films for their iconic characters. This 2017 feature of Wonder Woman will be the first major female role in the comic universe and she will be the second member of the Justice League to bring a new visual of her history on-screen. The costume design and visual effects created for Woman Woman will bring this character to life, really portraying to the audience how she is a valuable hero and how she measures equally with her male companions.  From the preview we see how the Amazons are separated from the world conflicts on the secret island of Themiscyra.  In the Justice League trailer , the Amazon warriors are at battle with what could be Darkseid’s legion of Parademons. Will these two movies tie in with one another in some way? Are the Amazons, one of the sole keepers of a Mother Box? Just like in her comic book history, Diana will choose to enter man’s world, putting her training to use fighting for,, well on June 2nd, we will see the details of the conflict!

Spawn vs Ghost Rider

image

Spawn and Ghost Rider is among many popular crossover topics within the comic community, mainly because of their similarities. Both characters wield supernatural powers originating from Hell through a pact with the Devil(Mephisto/ Malebolgia). Later through trial and error of their ways, both characters broke free from their hellish influence and used Hell’s power to free their own souls. They have major differences that determine the outcome of such a battle. Let’s dig in…

spawn vs ghost rider 1

Al Simmons was recruited to become the general of Hell’s Army. As general, his power would come second to his master Malebolgia. Spawn’s supernatural powers stems from his symbiotic armor. The armor is a living organism which is infused in Al Simmons’s nervous system, allowing him to control the symbiotic armor with his thoughts, conscious or unconscious. The armor is filled with necroplasm, which has a functioning concept like Green Power Ring. The armor responds and morphs to the will and imagination of Al Simmons. On Earth, Spawn’s magical powers are in limited supply, so his symbiotic armor feeds off evil or dark energy.The bigger the source, the more power it can consume and use without depleting its own power reserves. Battling Ghost Rider would be perfect for Spawn because Ghost Rider’s powers and abilities are supernatural and evil in origin. This battle would keep Spawn fully powered enough to use his magical abilities at maximum potential.

Johnny Blaze was destined to become agent of evil as the Ghost Rider. The Rider’s existence becomes possible from the union between Johnny Blaze and Zarathos. Zarathos is a demonic being in servitude to Mephisto as Violator is with Malebogia. This union is also similar to the Phoenix Force bonding with Jean Grey thus creating Phoenix and Dark Phoenix. Johnny Blaze can revert back and forth as the Ghost Rider at will, when before, was in the presence of evil. With demonic power at his disposal, Ghost Rider can control the mystical fire of Hell, which he channels through weapons or vehicles, making them supernaturally more powerful than before. Seemingly with no limit to his power, Ghost Rider is considered one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe.

Ultimately this battle comes down to the men who are hosts to the power, Al Simmons and Johnny Blaze. Al Simmons’s training and service to his country made him an excellent assassin. Johnny Blaze is a stunt performer, where his mental focus is on surviving death-defying feats than any physical combat training. Spawn has evolved to his higher form, Omega Spawn. This results in unlimited power on both the mortal and immortal planes, making himself third in power next to the power of Heaven and Hell. Ghost Rider is considered one of most powerful in his universe, but his god like potential is not fully realize because of the combat mentality of his mortal host. Would Ghost Rider stand a better chance against Omega Spawn when united with the Venom symbiote and the Red Hulk, or will he fall just as hard under the might of Omega Spawn??

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 adaptations of Dr. Doom the last of his on-screen appearances or can movie producers revive and correct his character development?

Justice League

justice leagueThe Justice League is a superhero team similar to The Avengers. Their role is to protect Earth and its citizens from domestic and universal threats while representing peace. Like the Avengers, the Justice League has a huge roster of heroes that makes up its organization. Its founding members start with the three icons: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. Then followed by The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter which now is replaced by Cyborg.

justice league2

The Justice League headquarters is a satellite space station that orbits around Earth, keeping the planet under constant surveillance. Equipped with starships and transporters, the Justice League can face threats with immediate response. These technologies are supplied by Batman, which he stands as the tech genius of the team next to Cyborg. How is it that Batman created technology similarly related to the Star Trek Universe?

DC Entertainment has produced multiple animated films and video games of the Justice League. The Wonder Woman film, Man of Steel ,Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League are huge movies for DC Entertainment, but can these heroes surpass the success of The Avengers??

Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

Hal 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 the Justice League. The Green Lantern Corps is similar to the Nova Corps of Marvel Comics, for both groups are police force 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 helped him overcome his father’s death to become an excellent pilot in the Air Force himself. Fighter Pilots in today’s world would also need such willpower to overcome fear in combat situations. The fear of heights, high speeds, and even the 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 media. This includes the crossover video game: Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe,  the cartoon : Green Lantern the Animated Series, and animated films such as Green Lantern First Flight. Do you think the live action movie was a success? The film gave comic fans fantastic CGI visuals of the character’s powers at play, but was the actor Ryan Reynolds a good choice? Let’s consider Ryan has played in four Marvel Comic films: X-MEN Origins WolverineBlade Trinity, Deadpool 1 and 2. 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 as first choice. Trying to stop or even battling the Dark Phoenix would be considered suicide for whoever took on the feat. 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’s entity: The 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. Do you think this Force could take on any of the Lantern Corps??IMG_20150211_100327Dark Phoenix made it to 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 didn’t 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, then wield the Red Power Ring?! To Be Continued….

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.

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?
