I had an idea I would like to try for my new superhero story. I have always been a fan and admirer of Stan Lee, the founder of the modern superhero genre. I kept track of all his cameos, attended some of his conventions, and watched a number of his shows. Now, however, a bright light has gone out in the universe when Stan Lee died. He was two years older than my sainted grandmother. Thanks to his decades of creating superheroes, Stan Lee has left an overwhelmingly fruitful legacy. He gave us superheroes such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, and the X-Men. To honor and pay tribute to Stan’s memory and legacy, I am thinking of basing a major supporting character in my new superhero story after him. The character will not share his name, but he will share some aspects of Stan’s physical appearance and personality. This character will serve as a homage and salute to this great man!
When Marvel Studios did a montage of all of Stan Lee’s cameos over the years in the opening of Captain Marvel, the only words that crossed my mind were, “We love you, Stan!”
I just saw Avengers: Infinity War and I finally got to see the omnipotence of the Infinity Gauntlet on the big screen! When all six Infinity Stones were combined into the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos had the power to wipe out half the universe’s population with just a snap of his fingers and defeated the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy with ease. This got me wondering what I would do if I wielded the Infinity Gauntlet’s omnipotence. Personally, I would do something similar to what Thanos did only instead of wiping out random people, I would wipe out everyone who is evil such as terrorists, dictators, corrupt politicians, dirty cops, school bullies, mobsters, drug dealers, arms dealers, human traffickers, thugs, loan sharks, murderers, rapists, abusive parents, and all other individuals like them. With every evil person wiped out instantly without the risk of collateral damage, I would give the world a chance to spend a generation or two without evil and they would know peace at last. In addition, I would end poverty, famine, war, and quite literally bring peace not only to Earth but to the entire universe. Also, I would eliminate pollution and turn every planet, moon, and planetoid in the universe into the thriving paradise with plants and animals aplenty. Once all that is done, then I will just toss the Gauntlet away and live a normal life. If I have any lingering doubts about my methods, then I will just use the Mind Stone to wipe out everyone’s (including mine) memories of my involvement. What about you? What would you do if you wielded the Infinity Gauntlet’s omnipotence?
Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls of all ages! The moment I have waited years for is finally here! My favorite teenage superhero team, The Runaways, has their own live action television show! I was head-over-heels in love with the graphic novel and I am in a state of infinite bliss to know that this show is coming! I can’t wait!
I got to see the new trailer for the third Thor film, Thor Ragnarok! I loved the elements of Planet Hulk with the Hulk as a gladiator. Now we will know once and for all who is stronger. Who will win? The World’s Mightiest Mortal or the Crown Prince of Asgard? I am also interested in the fact Thor’s hammer was destroyed because we will see what he will do when he is stripped of his strongest weapon. Also, Hela looks terrifying both in appearance and in terms of powers! My Viking blood is burning like molten iron in my veins because the Twilight of the Gods has begun!
As a devout superhero writer and fanatic, I always loved enjoying the superhero genre. In fact, my average week of television shows completely consist of superhero shows such as Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Gotham. Because I am so knowledgeable about superhero lore, I could see a number of comic book references in all of these shows and enjoyed the unique way the show writers present them.Whenever I watch any one of these shows, I often wonder if one day my Young Guardians Series will have their own show. That would be a dream come true if that were to happen. Overall, it feels good to be swimming in the superhero genre in my writing, in my shows, and in my reading.
I saw the latest trailer for the upcoming Doctor Strange film and I must say that I am excited to see the Sorcerer Supreme! After examining the clips in the trailer, I realized that Doctor Strange’s arrival is going to be a serious game changer. The reason for this is because in Captain America: Civil War, the world’s governments tried to control superhuman activity. After witnessing Doctor Strange’s magic warping reality to such an extreme degree, it became clear that Doctor Strange is too powerful for the world’s politics to control, which will make a lot of people question the effectiveness of the Sokovian Accords. Overall, I look forward to seeing this film and feel the magic literally radiate off the screen.
