First Marvel, Now Lucasfilm

“I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened” – Obi-Wan, Episode One: A New Hope

I guess we all have our price… I know I do LOL.

I Watched Basketball Wives Today…

… And I felt a part of my soul die.


As I’ve gotten older I realized that being jealous of anyone else’s success is counter-productive to my own success and happiness. And before I continue I have to say that I’m using the term jealous in the looses way because I refuse to believe that these basic-ass chicks on this show should warranty any emotion from anyone but pity.

I prayed that I would never get to see this show but for the last month its all that my best friend and my roommates have been talking about. Tonight I finally sat down and witnessed the incessant drama, bitchiness, the gaudiness… and frankly it all made me a little sick. So excuse me, I have to go continue to projectile vomit.

And A Moment of Silence

Wolverine & The X-Men


So I just recently came across some advance episodes of the new Marvel animated series, Wolverine & The X-Men. From watching just the first episode, you can tell that this series pulls a lot of its influences from the X-Men Movie Trilogy, the X-Men Evolution animated series and several poignant X-Men story arcs like Days of Future Past, and Joss Wheden’s Astonishing X-Men. Set against the de facto back drop of fighting for a world that hates and fears them, the X-Men find themselves lost without the tutelage of their beloved leader/mentor, Professor Xavier, whom along with X-Men long stay, Jean Grey, who disappeared in an explosion at the X-Men’s home, Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. With human-mutant relations escalating to a boiling point, its up to Wolverine to pull the team of mutants back together and save the world from the brink of destruction.

Without giving away any more spoilers, its great to see that most of the characterization is spot on; Cyclops is very brooding and lost without Jean, Emma Frost is a manipulative bitch, and Storm has a ethereal regality about her. While some of the characterization is great, some are not. Some mutant powers are either forgotten or not present for the art of story telling. Character back stories has been alter to either have it appeal to a broader audience or maybe to avoid continuity all together. But than again I could just be nitpicking. Either way I believe that anyone from the guy who remembers watching Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends growing up to the die-hard Marvel Zombie would be able to enjoy this series. Its just a damn same that it won’t be broadcast in the U.S. until January 2009 and on the Nicktoons Network of all places.
