  1. GIven some thought on the Funkasaurus and believe it or not.... it actually makes sense.

    If you debut Brodus Clay as this unstoppable monster heel, then he falls into the same trap that every other one has: Snitsky, Mike Knox, etc. etc. etc. On top of that, Kane is already filling the monster heel role on RAW and Henry is filling that role on RAW and Smackdown. To have another monster heel floods the market. Turning him into this, gets the fans and kiddies to like him. His talk inside the ring is great. "Shu-plex" and "My bad!" really are funny to hear.

    After giving this much thought and giving it time, I can firmly say that I am hopping the train to Planet Funk!



    Daniel Bryan = great heel

    Jericho walking out is great.

    Laurinitis FINALLY snapping was great as was Punk's tirade. I still DO NOT understand why Punk is not given more time to just go off like he does.

    Evan Bourne needs to lay off the marijuana, he's screwing his own career.


  2. Who's eyes will the Avengers be told through? Whedon answers.

    While The Avengers is clearly a group effort uniting some of Marvel’s most iconic superheroes, one crusader in particular will serve as the perspective for the movie, according to writer-director Joss Whedon.

    Longtime fans of the comic series will probably be pleased to hear which character he thinks provides the grounding focus.

    In the comic books, Cap was regarded as the leader of The Avengers, and the movie will keep that team captain (no pun intended) element in place.

    When last we saw him in the coda to Captain America: The First Avenger, Chris Evans’ World War II warrior was waking up in modern times after spending several decades as the world’s most patriotic popsicle.

    After recovering him from the arctic and reviving him, the law enforcement agency S.H.I.E.L.D. hoped to ease Steve Rogers back into the world. Of course, when he suspects something strange and escapes from his seemingly 1940s-era hospital room, he is stunned to find himself in present day Times Square.

    What followed was our first look at the team coming together for The Avengers movie, and Whedon says attaching this reveal to the Captain America film was no coincidence. “So much of [The Avengers] story takes place from Steve Rogers’ perspective, since he’s the guy who just woke up and sees this weird-ass world,” Whedon says. “Everyone else has been living in it. He’s the guy that feels that sense of loss.”

    “[The Avengers] is very much about people who are alone — because I’m writing it,” jokes Whedon, who has assembled groups of outcasts before in TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer andFirefly — but also, remember, in his script for the original Toy Story. “[Captain America] is kind of the ultimate loner in that way. There is an anachronism to him, and Chris and I have always tried to, without making it goofy or too obvious, make him that same grounded ’40s Steve Rogers he was in the other movie.”

    All that means is Captain America is the lens through which much of the story is seen. It doesn’t mean he’s the main character. The heroes in the film — Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye, and Samuel L. Jackson’s spymaster Nick Fury — carry about equal share of the movie. “You get them in a world, the world of S.H.I.E.L.D., where they fit in. And you say upfront, these are monsters. These are freaks. These are not you and me, and what are they doing here? How are they human beings?” Whedon says. “Let’s just investigate that.”

    The investigation gets underway May. 4.

  3. It was officially announced today that Ultimate Spider-Man will premiere starting April 1st on Disney XD. That same weekend, Disney XD is launching their Marvel block of shows which is to be anchored by Ultimate Spider-Man and the second season of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (which is, word has it, going to feature Dr. Doom as a villain)

  4. This is test footage and art mock ups from the failed Tim Burton film Superman Lives:

    Here's a picture of Doomsday:


    Here's Brainiac:


    Here's Brainiac's ship:

    New suit constructed to deal with the darkness on Earth and help keep Superman's powers (mixed with Eradicator tech)

  5. I have this item in my possession and have tried to scour eBay for more. The problem is I don't know what this is called. It's not a cell. It's not referred to as a pen and ink. Can someone tell me the official "comic book" term for something like this so that I can search the net for more?


  6. I have purchased Superman #s 1-4, Batman #s 1-4, The Flash #s 1-4, and Justice League #s 1-4.

    I can effectively say that Superman has been a waste of my time. Batman is awesome and I am looking forward to seeing where this leads. The origin of Mob Rule in The Flash is both disturbing and awesome. Justice League is cool but not as good as Flash and Batman right now. Something about the writing is a little off.
