Marvel in the real world

The Marvel universe has countless famous buildings. Stark tower, the avengers mansion, the baxter building, ... just a few of the many we all know. What if a fan were to look up the places where these buildings are supposed to stand. What if those buildings were actually based on the buildings standing in the real world.
One fan (Flickr - ChildOfAtom) asked himself these questions and went out to take a look. Some of the buildings he found kinda looked like the comic versions but I think we can all agree they're way more impressing in the comic books.   

First off we got the Baxter building. The famous hideout of the fantastic four. Personally I think this one is oké, it isn't really the same but it isn't that diffirent.

We've been talking a lot about the infinity stones lately. It's normal since the stones play a big role in the upcoming MCU films. Everything seems to build up Thanos who's after them for his infinity Gauntlet (read our previous post about the Gauntlet here ).

A question that might have crossed your mind is 'where did they come from?'. Well they actually used to be a living being. Nemesis was the sole being in all existence. She led a lonely life and when she couldn't take the loneliness any longer she shattered herself forming the multiverse and the infinity stones.

There used to be six gem's instead of five. The Ego gem was the one that claimed that it was the original being and was now ready to reclaim itself. Nemesis rose again when Adam Warlock brought the stones together and it took a whole lot of power to defeat her. The avengers alongside several other avengers teams from different reality's fought her and finally defeated her breaking the ego gem.

Who knows, maybe we'll get a little info about her in the next avengers franchise

Hey everyone, today we'll be talking about Warlock. The reason for this is that Warlock's cocoon is speculated to be in the next Thor franchise. Whether or not it's true it's always fun to learn about someone new. 

Warlock was created by called 'the beehive'. They tried to make the perfect human being and Warlock is the result of their experiment. The beehive called Warlock 'him' at first. When 'him' emerged he soon sensed that the beehive would use him for evil purposes so he escaped killing a bunch of them on his way out. 
Warlock was set free in the world with no knowing of human ways or life experience non the less. He lived on nothing but instinct. Now you can only imagine what a instinctive young man would do as he encounters lady Sif… That's right, after seeing the queen of combat he tries to kidnap her in order to mate with her. 
Thor doesn't like this, not one bit so he beats Warlock until he's nearly dead. Warlock retreated to a regenerative cocoon and reborns. 

After this rebirth he get's the name Warlock from the high evolutionary who guided him and gave him purpose. One big deal is the fact that the high evolutionary gives him the soul gem which is the last missing infinity stone in the MCU universe. This means that all the stones would be on the map if they really use Warlock off course. 

Later in his story he journeys to the planet called counter earth which is kind of a parallel version of the planet earth. here he faces his greatest enemies 'the man-beast' and becomes one of the greatest heroes on counter earth.

Hey guys! The new Deadpool movie has been out for a while now and I think that every real  Deadpool fan will confirm it was everything we'd hoped for. If you watched until after the credits (duh) you've seen how Deadpool teases about Cable in the next movie. Lucky for you guy's I've read all the Deadpool & Cable comics so today we'll give a little info about who Cable is.

You should know Cable is a very complex character so I won't get in to every detail about his Marvel history, what I will get into is his role next to Deadpool and his powers.
Cable's real name is Nathan Summers, that's right! Summers! Cable is actually the son of Cyclops. How's that even possible? He looks way older than Cyclops! I'm glad you asked. In the comics Cable is also known as the soldier of the future. Basically Cyclops did some shady shit to conceive Cable using a clone of Jean Grey (ew!). When Cable showed much potential a lot of people held there eye on him, one of those 'people' was Apocalyps. Afraid of losing his son and out of options Scott agreed to send the boy 2.000 years into the future.

In the series 'Deadpool and Cable' Nathan is back in the present. He has a lot of powers (In my honest opinion this character is completely overpowered and could rule the whole earth.). In this story he's able to Teleport, use Telepathy, has Telekinese, Is able to travel trough time and space. Deadpool on the other hand has nothing but his healing factor. Still they weigh up against each other since Cable has a soft spot for Deadpool and throughout the story they are friends at some points and foe's at others.

Cable wants to create a 'Land' (which he makes himself using his Telekinese powers). A land free of violence, war, racisme. Basically he wants to play God. He uses his powers to surveillance everything that happens in his land and naturally it all backfires.

Weather or not this is the storyline they wil use (which is a heavy one if you ask me.) we'll have to see in the second Deadpool franchise! At least now you know a little bit more about Cable!

It's been a while since we've last talked about someone in the 'Spidey' theme. Today I've decided to take a look at one of my favorite Spiderman villains 'Venom'.

When we refer to Venom we could be talking about two different things. Some say Venom is the boy called Eddie Brock, who was the second victim of the symbiote virus after Peter Parker himself. Others claim that Venom is what the symbiote virus calls itself.

To be clear the symbiote virus is alien and feeds from it's host adrenaline. It grants the host spider-like powers but the more it feeds the more influence it gets on the host until the host has no saying anymore. The virus can split up and take over different hosts at a time. Some notable hosts in Marvel history are Flash Thompson, Peter's friend and later army Corporal. He actually uses the Virus for the good as an agent. Also career criminal Mac Gargan who uses it's powers to join the dark avengers.

Ms. Marvel

You might have heard of here, you might not but she's a big character in the MCU and certainly one you should know a little something about. Today we're giving a little origins info about Ms. Marvel.

Carol Danvers always had a love for flying. When she graduated high school she gave herself up to be trained at the air force academy. People soon noticed that she had a neck for this kind of stuff and she roze in the ranks becoming a major. Since she was so good she soon got a job with the CIA where she worked with colonel Nick Fury.

In a Canadian mission she had to partner up with a agent Logan and the two shared many adventures. During their time together they became very close, maybe even lovers.
After some escapades with the CIA Carol decided to leave and joined NASA instead. It was there that her whole life changed. She met the Kree warrior called Mar-vell. During her investigation they created a unique bond and later on they as wel became lovers. Mar-vell had a lot of enemies maybe the biggest one was colonel Yon-Rogg. The evil colonel kidnapped Carol and used her as bait for Mar-vell and when he came for her during his rescue mission she got hit by a energie blow which fused Mar-vell his powers with her.

Miss Marvel was born and boy she was strong. Flight, enhanced strength, durability and the power to shoot lazer blasts from her hands. No joke! She has been a part of the X-Men (even though she isn't a mutant.) and the Avengers.

Gorr the god butcher

Hey guys! today we're going to talk about a villain i read recently about. Marvel is bringing out a lot of new comicbook series and it's hard to keep track so i decided to follow a story line of Thor, The New Avengers, Ironman and Wolverine. Gorr the god butcher is a villain from the Thor series and I think he's a real badass.

Born on a planet with no name Gorr was surrounded by death. When he was just a boy his parents died and he soon had to fight against starvation day after day. His parents thought him to pray to the gods, that they would make everything ok. No matter how hard he prayed he got no answer. Later on he found himself a wife and got a son but the magic didn't last very long since his wife died in a earthquake and his son starved in his arms.

Gorr blamed the god's and all beings calling them self a god or goddess would pay. He gained powers called the All-Black Necrosword and so he began slaying. The god of fear, war, genocide, plague, chaos, earthquakes, blood, wrath, jealousy, degradation and even death. They all met his sword and died at his hand.
There was one god who escaped him. No one else than our hero Thor. While Gorr was torturing him in the Viking ages the humans came for his rescue and Thor was able to cut off Gorr's arm before escaping.
The result wasn't really what Thor hoped for since Gorr's wrath grew and he slayed even more god's and became even more powerful. After slaying all the god's he could find Gorr began to mess with diffirent time streams and eventually it comes to a face off between past Thor (who could not even wield mjollnir yet), present Thor (who we all know) and Thor for the future (much like Odin) against Gorr.

The story isn't hard to find since it's all new and if you're looking for something good I strongly recommend it!

The Serpent Society

If you watched the Luke Cage series you might have noticed that the bad guy's (Cottonmouth and Diamondback) were al named after snakes. This isn't a coincidence since the most stable criminal organisation in the Marvel Universe is called 'The Serpent Society'.

I must admit that I've seen a few appearances of the serpents and my impression of them was a bunch of idiots dressed as snakes but after Luke Cage I looked into them and there seems to be more about them than meets the eye. 
The one who started the whole group was Sidewinder, who had tried creating a organisation a few times with 'The Serpent Squad' before succeeding. The first members were Anaconda, Black Mamba and Death Ader. Sidewinder convinced them to contact other known mob's and gangsters and soon the group grew. Asp, Bushmaster, Cottonmouth, Diamondback, Cobra and Princess Python joined the club. 
When the whole bunch came together Sidewinder explained his idea. A society of mob's and gangsters working together as one. Each would lay out there resources and they would all benefit from each others technologie, weapons, money, insurance and health benefits. They would also be for hire to criminals who could afford them.

There first gig was killing the original M.O.D.O.K. for an ex member of AIM. When they succeeded they really got on the map as hired criminals of the first caliber. 
Later Princess Python deserted the group and Death Ader got killed. Viper once tried to take over the group but Diamond back got help from Captain America himself to save the society.

As you can read there's more about the group than meets the eye. Killing M.O.D.O.K. or getting help from the Captain himself aren't things achieved by a group of idiots. Even tough they're painted of as idiots sometimes.

Review Doctor Strange

Hey guys, today we'll we reviewing the Doctor Strange so for those who didn't have a chance of seeing it SPOILER ALERT. For those who did see it, everything below is a personal opinion of how I experienced the movie. It is perfectly possible and oke if you don't agree with what I think.

Overall I have to say 'wauw'. They pulled it off again didn't they? The MCU had quit some challenges when it comes to Marvel stories, I can imagine it can't be easy to sell a talking raccoon but they did it and with Doctor Strange his complex story line they did it again.
Stephen Strange is a serious and big character in the comic books so they had to make sure the movie wasn't a flop and they did a good job. A lot of stuff in the comics is quit hard to follow, the different universes, the time controlling etc. Yet they were able to bring it on screen naturally and I think it wasn't that hard to follow.    

I liked the reference to the infinity stones. They revealed the time stone in the eye of Agamotto which is a little wink to those who are paying attention to the overall story line in the MCU films.
The fact that the ancient one dies at the end is something I didn't expect. I question if it was the right move since it's a big character to kill. It's perfectly possible to keep a powerful character alive without messing up the main character's story, watch what they did with Odin in the Thor franchise.

At last I wanted to point out that I really like that Mordo played a friend in this movie, the comic readers know that he will turn out to become Strange's arch enemy but they didn't rush it. At the end you kind off notice that he's not a big fan of the Ancient One no more but it's subtle which I think is a nice play.
