I’M A MARVEL

Posted in Comic Books, Marvel with tags on January 19, 2011 by Kaiderman

Our buddy Katie over at THE STORIES THAT REALLY MATTERED came up with a great MEME for her fellow Fanboy bloggers. The idea is simple: Which do you prefer? Marvel or DC Comics? Obviously, I’m a Marvel. Here’s my Top 5 reasons why:

5. STAN THE MAN.

DC loses for not having a Stan Lee. The man who started Marvel makes you want to read his comics with his enthusiasm alone. He is, not only an icon but, a bit of a character himself and his charm and enthusiasm are just so contagious.

4. BEST CHARACTERS.

Honestly, with the exception of Batman, I’ve never been a fan of the big DC characters. Whereas, I love just about everyone running around the Marvel universe. I think that’s mainly due to the fact that DC characters always seemed (Batman excluded) other-worldly and inaccessible. The Marvel characters were always so human… be it Iron Man’s drinking problem or Peter Parker’s inability to be as cool as his alter ego. Somehow, Marvel always makes the man inside the costume as interesting as the stuff they do with them on.

3. HOTTER CHICKS.

Don’t get me wrong! It’s not like I haven’t had a few Wonder Woman fantasies in my day. Linda Carter knows what I’m talkin’ about. However, the girls of the Marvel universe just take the cake. Mary Jane Parker? I like the sound of that!

2. MARVEL vs. DC.

Many of you probably don’t know (or remember) this but in the 90’s, Marvel and DC did a crossover comic where the 2 worlds collided. The fans voted on who would win the major battles and you know what? Marvel came out on top… because they are better.

1. WHAT’S MY NAME?

I couldn’t go around calling myself your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman and then be a DC, could I?

SCENES THAT KICK ASS #5

Posted in Marvel, Ongoing Lists, Scenes That Kick Ass with tags , , on June 2, 2010 by Kaiderman

It’s time for a new entry into the pantheon of scenes that KICK ASS. The theory behind this post is this…

Some movies have a scene in them that is so awesome it can make the whole film worth watching. A scene that can make a bad film good and a great film better. A scene so good that it KICKS ASS… hence the title of the post. This week, we are featuring a clip from the movie:

Remember when vampires were masculine? I do! Therefore, I present you with this scene to prove it. Blade wasn’t a scary movie but this is a freaky scene and it’s also proof that David S. Goyer is capable of being a good writer. So, without further ado, I present you with a KICK ASS scene from the movie that really started the Comic Book to Film movement… ENJOY!!!

That’s it for now, Bloodsuckers. Feel free to comment below. I never edit any of the comments. Remember, this was meant to be an interactive site, as much as I love the sound of my own voice.

So, the first pic of Chris Hemsworth as Thor has been released:

I actually thought Thor would be the hardest character to translate to the screen but, I gotta say, I’m diggin’ this… what do you guys (and girls) think???
