Old Man Logan

Marvel has introduced a ton of new comic stories. A lot new and original concepts are bound to come along. They've put a 'All New Avengers' issues on the calendar also a second civil war, which is a big deal and something i'm personally very excited about. There will also come a sequel to the 'old man logan' series.

I've read the first volume (8 issues) of this story and I think it's a real 'must read' if you're looking for something different from the classic stories. Everybody who has already read the first volume will agree it isn't a soft or happy story line. It takes place in a dark world where heroes are almost extinct and the world leaders are all known villains.

In this post we'll be giving you a little inside info about Storm also known as Ororo Monroe.
Every few post we'll be speaking about a specific character. You might think you know most marvel characters judging by the movies and some comicbook appearances, but a lot of heroes have a really cool and interesting origin story.

Ororo is actually a descendant from a very wealthy and ancient line of African priestesses. Her mom was a princess and her dad was a American photojournalist. When they lived in Egypt a plane crashed on their house in a Arab-Israeli conflict. Both her parents died but the little girl survived. This incident is the reason why Storm is claustrophobia.

Today I'll be giving a little background on Nightcrawler. This mutant has appeared twice in Marvel movies (X-men 2 and X-men Apocalypse). Both adaptions painted a good physical picture about the character. He's hard not to notice with his blue skin and devil's tail but his family history was never brought up in the movies.

Nightcrawler was raised by Margali Szardos. Margali was gypsy sorceress traveling with a circus. She always claimed that she found Kurt Wagner (Nightcrawler) in a ditch next to his dead father but this was just a lie to keep the boy safe. The truth is that Nightcrawlers real mom is Mystique also known as Raven Darkholme and his father is the notorious warlord called Azazel.

When Mystique had Nightcrawler she heard that a mob found out about the kid. Afraid for her own and the kid's fait and not being able to take responsibility for her child she throws him in a well. Azazel being the father was not able to let go of the child zo he saved the boy from his fall in secret and gave the baby to his mistress Margali.

Nightcrawler is blue like his mother but has a tail and the mutant powers of his dad. His powers are teleportation, superhuman agility and reflexes, night vision and being able to blend into shadows. His skin color and tail were things he had since birth but his abilities only emerged when he was a teenager.

The Inhumans

When the Kree race first discovered life on planet earth they found nothing more than primitive homo sapiens. Humans were then harmless creatures but the Kree saw potential in them. They started to experiment and this is how eventually the inhuman race was created. After a while the Kree abandoned their experiments for reasons that are yet unknown.

The alien DNA lived on and the inhumans created a society of their own. They all had incredible powers and lived in seclusion from the other humans. In time they developed supreme technology way ahead of what the normal humans had discovered so far.

The secret society didn't last very long since the inhumans interacted with several earth super heroes. The Fantastic Four, The Avengers and The X-Men got all had help from the Inhumans throughout the years.

the Kree-Skrull war

The war between the Kree and Skrull is a story written by Roy Thomas. The war is a notable story because of it's enormous cast of characters and use of metaphor. It's also the introduction of the Vision and Scarlett Witch romance, which became an ongoing theme for the characters. A lot of critics consider this chapter a highlight of it's comic era and if you haven't read about it yet it's most certainly recommend it!

In this story the avengers, Captain Marvel and Rick Jones (a character on which we will come back in a other post soon!) find themselves in the middle of an intergalactic war between the Kree and the Skrulls. Earth is positioned halfway between the home galaxy's of the Kree and the Skrull. Both seek to destroy or conquer it, in order to gain tactical advantage in their war.

The Skrulls

As promised we'll be writing about the Skrulls after our last post about the Kree. These two races wage a huge war against each other in the Marvel universe and these posts are a preparation in explaining the war. 

The Skrulls are a ancient race that created a vast empire throughout the galaxy. They started out on the planet Skrullos and in their early evolutionary development a more advanced race 'the Celestials' took a few of the skrull for experimentation. Some of the subjects died, others gained mutations. The mutation was one of camouflage. They were able to take the physical appearance of other life forms as they choose. The Skrull who were able to do this called themselves 'the deviant Skrullos'. They ruled over the other skrulls and soon eradicated the other less gifted of their kind.
