Best and Worst Comic Movie Villains

Comics, Film

Every great hero needs a villain, otherwise we’d have no need for superheroes.  With the current trend in turning comics into movies, inevitably, something gets lost in translation.  Either the script is terrible, the special effects are lacking, or the casting just isn’t right.

Worst Mutant Powers Ever

Comics

At some point in all our lives we’ve wanted to be a super-hero.  For those that have read Marvel Comics, mutant powers have always been a draw.  The X-Men (and their villains) have always had the coolest powers.  Wolverine and his healing factor, Magneto’s control over all things metal, and who wouldn’t like to shoot […]

It wasn’t too long ago that we saw Bruce Lee kick the crap out of Iron Man.  Now, Iron Man returns with a new opponent – the Dark Knight.  Will Iron Man triumph against Batman, or will the Gotham Knight continue Tony Stark’s track record of getting his ass handed to him by opponents without […]

Best Fictional Weapons

Cartoons, Comics, Film, Technology, Video Games

First of all, a quick disclaimer: I am not glamorizing nor glorifying weapons, violence, or related topics. Ok, now that that’s out of the way…we’ve all watched some action movie, TV show, or played a video game and thought that the hero (or villain) had a badass weapon. But what are the best of these […]
