The Kree

Our next message will be about a alien race called 'the kree'. Later this week we'll also be talking about the skrull and finally the great war in between both races. This is important information for any marvel fan because a lot of tales come forth out of this war. The inhumans, Ronan the accuser, agents of SWORD, ... all examples of important Marvel characters linked to these alien races.

The Kree is a very noble race. They are way older than man kind and have twice the strength and endurance than the average human. Originally there skin was blue and the ancient once still remain blue but within time a new generation, a lesser evil and noble generation came forth from the original Kree who have pink skin. The ancient blue Kree however do not consider these pink offsprings true Kree.

The original Guardians of the Galaxy

We all know Starlord and his crew from the MCU adaption of guardians of the galaxy. A lot of people (including myself) had some serious doubts about how this would turn out. It's a very different storyline than the other superhero movies and the whole thing leans more in the sci-fi genre than the superhero genre.
Disney did their magic and as usual they nailed it! I enjoyed the movie a lot and so did most people according to it's 8.1 rating on IMDb.

One of the things I did remember from the time before the movie came out was that I tried to do some research on the storyline but found a complete different story with all different characters. I found out there were other guardians of the galaxy and Starlord's crew is only one of the most resent ones.
In this post i'll be talking about the original guardians.

The Defenders

The Defenders! A team up we're all looking forward to. After the great succes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, Netflix is planning to work towards a superhero team up.

The Defenders will be a four hero team containing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and the Iron Fist. I don't know if this was the plan since day one but it kind of makes some sense.
In the comicbooks the defenders are not the loud and public kind of team like the Avengers or the X-men. But they're an underground group of heroes who help each other out from time to time. No official meeting place, no rulebook or guideline for the team members. And in a lot of stories several members even dislike each other.

A variety of Hulks

If you thought there was only one Hulk you're wrong. Oké, there is only one true hulk as we know him from the movies. There is only one original Hulk, but a few were able to get hulk like powers. Today we'll tell you all about them.

First let me start off with the original Hulk. We all know the basics don't we? Genius professor who is a little bit too curious. Experiments with Gamma radiation for military research and ends up turning into a giant, green rage monster. Every time Bruce gets angry or when his hart rate goes up he changes again. What many don't know is that in some comics the Hulk turns grey from time to time. Grey hulk is a version of the Hulk where Bruce Banner is able to control his transformation. In this version the Hulk is able to think like a genius making him smarter but less dangerous.

Spidey's gear

Everybody knows Spiderman. The web slinging hero is one of the most beloved marvel characters and has a great deal of movie and comic history behind him.

Throughout the universes there were many versions of Spiderman but today i'd like to talk about the version where he uses artificial webbing.
In the last two movies (the amazing spiderman and the amazing spiderman two) they used this version but since the series of movies was brought to an end (when Disney bought the rights of spiderman) we never really got to see the potential of his gear.

Now with the introduction of a new spiderman in the Civil War we learn that this spiderman also invents a web-shooter. Also at the end of the movie spiderman gets an upgraded web-shooter from Tony Stark. This one has the Spider-Signal, a device used in the early issues of the comics.

X-men Apocalypse review

I'm writing this post because Apocalypse is a hot subject right now. I'd like to share the differences between the movie and the comics and I would also like to give my personal opinion about certain parts of the movie. 

If you were wondering, I enjoyed the movie a lot. I love how they brought Jean Grey and Cyclops in the picture. Also Nightcrawler was brought very good and the whole weapon X drama building up, nice job FOX looks like they really start to realize what the fans like to see. 

A few things did bother me. First of all I think they went of way to fast with the whole Phoenix power scene. Jean Grey and her inner phoenix is a major part of the comic books and I think they went over it too fast. In the comic's you'll read that Jean has no control what so ever when she released the phoenix. It would be very dangerous to unleash such an amount of power surrounded by X-Men and Xavier of the comics would never allow it.

Weapon X

Weapon X! Is a big subject to talk about. For those who don't know, Weapon X is the name of an evil government organisation with as main purpose turning mutants into weapons. Throughout the years there are three well known versions of the organisation. This is what we'll be writing about today.

The first appearance of Weapon X is in the early nineteens. The weapon X facility was created by the Canadian government and it's best known victim is of course Wolverine! The leader of this mad experiment was John Sublime also the leader of an even bigger organisation called Weapon plus, which was a supersoldier program that started in the forties created to hunt down Mutants. Weapon X was the first branch of the organisation experimenting on Mutants.

They had the tools to erase or even alter the memories of their 'patients' making them into the perfect killers. After the successful first subject they made a team. You guessed it! Team X was born containing Wolverine, Sabertooth, Maverick, Silver Fox, Mastodon and Kestrel. The team didn't last very long since Native (An other mutant with a healing factor and heightened senses) made Wolverine see the truth and helped him escape. So in a raging storm Wolverine killed almost every person in the building and left Weapon X dead behind.
