The super-Skrull

Hi, guys! today we'll be talking about a villain whom we think is definitely worth looking in to. The super-Skrull made a lot of great appearances. If you don't know what skrull are first read this previous post!
In one of the attempts of the Skrull to invade planet earth, it were the fantastic four who stopped them. The Skrull fell back infuriated by their defeat and there leader Dorrek was determined to defeat the team of heroes.

After lot's of discussions with the best and brightest among the Skrull, Dorrek pulled all his resources to creat a sublime warrior. One of his best soldiers got chosen to experiment on and he would finally be known as the super-Skrull.
This being had all the powers of the Fantastic four for his own and could wield them all at once. His weakness was that he was empowered by a interstellar beam. The first time he meets the Fantastic Four he humiliates them. The team didn't know what they were up against and were no match.
It didn't take long for Doctor Fantastic to figure out what empowered this creature and soon he invented a machine to block the beam and they were able to defeat the super-Skrull. 

The Skrull didn't give up easily so they created a stronger beam empowering their soldier again. The super-Skrull fell and roze many times. He stood against many foe's (Thor, The fantastic four, The avengers, Captain Marvel,...). He also did a lot of notable team up's with Thanos and Ronan the accuser (Ronan will be a subject we'll write about soon). 

Soon the value of the super-Skrull became noted by a lot of parties. He fought for a lot of armies sometimes against his own will but he played a big role in a lot of great story lines. Definitely a character worth knowing.

Guy's today marvel released a first sneak peek of 'guardians of the galaxy vol 2'. If you haven't seen it yet, hurry to our Facebook page (click here). Since most of us got surprised by this sudden release we've decided to make today's post about one of the new guardians.
That's right, there are two confirmed new guardians in this movie. Both of them had a side role in the previous movie but are ready to step up, we're talking about Yondu and Nebula. Nebula will be our subject a differente time, today will be all about Yondu!

Born on Zataon young Yondu grew up to be a hunter. The tribes who lived there were primal compared to earths further evolved humans. When earth started colonizing planet's outside their own, the solar system Zataon was one of the first planets on the radar. Most of the inhabitants were intimidated by earths supreme technology, they didn't pick a fight and had peaceful relationships with the settlers. Yondu's tribe however, sought sanctuary in the forests so they didn't need to contact the earthlings.

One day the planet was under attack by the Badoon. During the chaos Yondu came across an earthling and the two banded together in the hopes of escaping the planet. It didn't work out the way they planned since the Badoon captured them and held them prisoners.
Later Yondu and his human friend Astor escaped together with Charlie-27 and Martinex and the four of them founded the very first Guardians of the galaxy!

This is the origin story of Yondu in the comics, and it is only one version of him. In other universes he might really band up with Starlord. I wanted to share this one today so you guys could learn that Yondu was much more than a bounty hunter in one of the universes.

Many of you will have watched Luke Cage already, some might still have to check it out. In our previous post we talked about Luke from a comic book perspective (you can read it here). If you've read it you'll notice we also talked about his arch nemesis Diamond Back.
In the series it's also his greatest foe but his first real foe is Cotton Mouth, we thought you'd like to learn a little more about this gangster crimelord.

Cottonmouth was a drug lord behind what he claimed to be the most successful drug cartel in the whole country. His right hand mand Slick was always by his side. Luke Cage was offered a job in the mob hierarchy by Cottonmouth (notice that this also happens in the beginning of the series). Luke pretends to take the job, to gain proof about the setup that had put him in jail years ago (as you can read in our previous Luke Cage post).
Slick doesn't trust Luke one bit and claims he has to prove himself so Cottonmouth sends him out to retrieve drugs that was stolen from him. Luke does the job but informs to the police. Cottonmouth finds out and isn't very happy about it. A fight between the two breaks out and during the fight Luke throws Slick trough the window. Slick didn't survive the fall and when Luke tries to force Cottonmouth to talk he finds out that the only one who had info on the setup was Slick he had now killed.

Angry and desperate Luke gives Cottonmouth to the police who gave him a one way ticket to jail and Luke continued his search for proof about his past.

Misty Knight

Misty Knight is a name you might have heard around lately. She's one of the leading characters in the new Netflix series 'Luke  Cage'. What you probably didn't know is that she has a history in the Marvel comicbooks as wel. Today's post we'll shine a light on her history in the comic's so you know what you might see in the future development of the character in the series. Weather or not Marvel will do something with the backstory of Misty is still a mysterie.

Mercedes Knight was born and raised in New York city. When she got older she decided she wanted to be a police officer and she soon followed her dreams and rose the ranks becoming a lieutenant. In a unfortunate accident where she tried to get rid of a bomb she lost her arm. In that time she had already made a name for herself and many heroes already knew her. Tony Stark was one of those heroes and he felt sorry for the woman so he made her a bionic arm. The arm was stronger than any other arm but she wasn't able to lift too heavy stuff since the rest of her body still needed to support the machine.

The Mandarin

Today we'll be writing about the Mandarin. Most of you will know him from the Iron Man 3 franchise and even tough the movie wasn't all that bad they did ruin a great character. If you've watched the movie you've seen that their version of the Mandarin was nothing more than a crook. A homeless man called Travor Slattery picked from the street and used as a distraction while the real evil was happening behind the scenes.

Nothing is further away from the truth behind this character! In the comic books the Mandarin is a real villain and even an arch nemesis of Tony Stark. Read further to find out what the Mandarin is really about!

We've already talked about the infinity gauntlet a few posts back (if you missed that post click here). Today we'd like to shine a light on the one who uses this insane weapon, where did he come from? Why does he seek to rule the galaxy? That's right today we'll be talking about Thanos!

Thanos was one of the last son's of A'Lars. He was one of the Eternals on the planet Titan but he was not like the others of his kind. Due to his Deviant syndrome he had a massive body and as a child he soon became obsessed with the concept of death.
