Been suggested I say no more about the personal stuff, sounds like a good idea. So sitting in a tropical airport with insanely heavy rain pounding on the tin roof, I turn my mind to Thor, the least popular of the Marvel movie series.
What are they thinking?
Firstly, the casting of blacks as Asgardians is culturally offensive and pure SJW PC bullshit. It was bad enough when Heimdall (epithet: The White God) was turned negroid. And given to such an arrogant talentless token into the bargain. Now the sexiest blonde in the Marvel universe has been given the mulatto treatment, much as Sue Storm has been in the past.
And to make sure the kiss of death is delivered – medium talent maximum activist Mark Ruffalo is involved, guaranteeing at least some backlash and boycott.
But then undercutting the most male and over the top characters is the agenda here. No accident.
As described by Tony Stark when talking to Peter Parker, and based on catching the car using webbing as a modifier to his roll, Spider-Man in the MCU has Amazing Strength. Smile.
The traditional MSHRPG Spidey would have Amazing AGILITY. MCU version seems to have both.
Fantastic 3D art – Renderosity et al responsible but the artist is a master. 🙂
Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow is a very smart move by Disney, and since Johansson relies on her pneumatic charms it isn’t a guilty pleasure to see her do her best to emulate the virtually impossible physique of the contemporary comicbook version of the character.
But check out the DeviantArt pages for the Artist. His kung fu is the best.
The final chapters of the Great American Novel (see FF323) refer to a time bubble between 2005 and 2020:
The next year this bubble moved back to 2010-2025, where it stuck. This was probably the last slippage of Marvel Time before it broke that year. this is from FF340 in 1990:
The 1990 story gives the full details: novody could see into those years because the entire universe being rebooted. This is the Great Reboot, a reflection of Marvel Comics rebooting in the real world.
It is the biggest story in all Marvel history. The covers proclaim it as such: they declare it to be, progressively, “THE BIG ONE”, “THE BIGGER ONE” AND “THE BIGGEST ONE”. This is Walt Simonson at his cosmic best, a story of the Avengers and Fantastic Four discovering that the future ends in the year 2010 (that is, “20 years” after publication). Until the year 2025 (that is, 15 years) all is a mystery: time and space then reboot, and nothing from the previous universe can travel into the new one. It is, in short, a complete reboot of Marvel. What makes this especially interesting is that when 2010 came, the same story was repeated in different ways in different books, and the event really happened: what was left of the Marvel Universe began a fifteen year reboot.
