When in doubt, blow it up.

23 & French. Call me Lou if you please.

Here will be an almost complete collection of things I like, from comic-books to insects. Also food and sometimes Science. But mostly superheroes. Because, dude, superheroes.


Giraffe-taur drops a quarter: the crappy comic.

Hey everyone!

I’m working on an article for next week based on Tolkien as a popular fantasy writer and why. It’s a two part series, sadly on a ‘Martin vs Tolkien’ format and I was asked to take the Tolkien perspective. I’m hoping to not head down the comparative path too much, ie…

ARE WE ALL AWARE OF THIS?????????????????



Original Sin: Avengers #29 - Preview Pages 


Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry



Look, maybe this is just me, but… why isn’t everyone ever signed up for this?

Avenger Black Widow is one of the best bets, as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who has already proven herself on-screen, and with a spy skill set that can break superhero cinema out of the usual origin-story rut…But instead of being seen as powerful and dynamic characters who could lead their own films, a double standard is applied to superheroines. The men lead, and the women support, no matter how powerful their characters are. Marvel head Kevin Feige has actually repeatedly expressed happiness at how his company has handled female superheroes. He is perfectly happy to have the female characters support the men, rather than feel pressure over the company’s very recognizable exclusion of female stars: “I’m very proud of the way the Marvel movies handle the female characters […] as opposed to feeling the pressure of ‘When are you doing a female movie?’”

Intentional or not, Feige’s words express a palpable disinterest in the female superheroes audiences clearly want to see. In the same interview, he blows off the idea of a Black Widow solo movie with that same old standby: “If we had a great idea, we’d do it.”

The fact is that if Feige desired it, it would happen — and the Marvel head has a history of making his desires a reality. “It became a secret dream” of his “to have a second bite at the apple” when Hulk crashed and burned in 2003. In five short years, Bruce Banner was back for The Incredible Hulk — another film that missed the mark, before the character finally hit, four years later, when Mark Ruffalo took over in The Avengers. That time, Feige made it happen, and poor returns on Marvel’s investments didn’t stop him.
