Subject: UPDATE
Nebraska Catholic Leadership: Their False Teachings & the Death Penalty


From : Dudley Sharp

Catholic leadership, in Nebraska, as elsewhere, keep the death penalty truth away from their flock.

That claim is supported, in detail, below and here (1) and has been sent, repeatedly, to the Bishops, their staffs and/or parishes, for months.

The Nebraska Bishops are presenting error after error, week after week (1). It is long overdue to end it.

1) The Truth:  All Catholics May Support the Death Penalty

All good and faithful Catholics may, now,  support the death penalty, may support more executions and may, faithfully and thoughtfully, disagree with the Church's 1995/1997 death penalty restrictions.

The Bishops False Teachings:

With the title of  "3. Prudence, schmrudence…” (2), the Nebraska Bishops, immaturely and disrespectfully, accuse Catholics of "acting like two year olds", when those "two year old" Catholics say that the post 1995/1997 Catholic teachings on the death penalty are matters of prudential judgment and, because of that, such "two year old" Catholics find that all good Catholics may support the death penalty and more executions based upon prudential judgment (see The Proof, just below), as well as over 2000 years of Church teachings (1). 


The Proof:

The Evidence Against the Bishops

Let's look at the blatant errors  and insulting language of the Bishops and who they call "two year olds":

The most prominent of the "two year olds" are three members of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) , the most authoritative voice for valid teachings within the Church:

--  Kevin L. Flannery S.J., Consultor of CDF

--  Cardinal-Prefect of CDF Joseph Ratzinger (1981-2005), currently Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

--  Cardinal-Prefect of CDF William Levada (2005- 2012), who, currently, serves as Prefect emeritus of CDF

--  as well as all good and thoughtful Catholics who find the death penalty just and appropriate (1), while also finding that it saves more innocent lives (6).

All identified by the Bishops as "two year olds".


Prudential Judgment:

These first two were delivered to the US Catholic Bishops, but have not been presented by the Nebraska Bishops to their congregations - an intentional  and major error of omission.

Cardinal-Prefect Ratzinger (2004), now Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI:

"3.  ". . . if a Catholic were to be at odds with the Holy Father on the application of capital punishment or on the decision to wage war, he would not for that reason be considered unworthy to present himself to receive Holy Communion. While the Church exhorts civil authorities to seek peace, not war, and to exercise discretion and mercy in imposing punishment on criminals, it may still be permissible to take up arms to repel an aggressor or to have recourse to capital punishment. There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia."
"Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion: General Principles, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, from a memorandum sent by Cardinal Ratzinger to Cardinal McCarrick, made public in the first week of July 2004.

confirmed by Cardinal-Prefect William Levada (2004):

". . .  if a Catholic were to disagree with the Holy Father on the application of capital punishment… he would not for that reason be considered unworthy to present himself to receive Holy Communion... While the Church exhorts civil authorities… to exercise discretion and mercy in imposing punishment on criminals, it may still be permissible… to have recourse to capital punishment.  There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about… applying the death penalty, but not with regard to abortion and euthanasia." “Theological Reflections on Catholics in Political Life and the Reception of Holy Communion,” a United States Conference of Catholic Bishops document.

Bishops Double Down on Their Errors

The Bishop's write: "The Church’s doctrine is that if there are “non-lethal means” of protecting society from a bad dude then the State must limit itself to those non-lethal means. That’s not up for negotiation. That’s the teaching."

--- This is not doctrine and cannot be, as the Bishops well know (1).

---  The Bishops, also, know it is up for "negotiation" by any thoughtful Catholic who disagrees with the Church's prudential judgment -- that is the actual teaching, as detailed and not rebutted, as opposed to the Bishops' fiction by omission and commission.

---  The Church alternates between "non-lethal" and "bloodless" means, with the later being the current official language at the Vatican site.

Although they mean the same, the huge problem with "bloodless" is that it, so blatantly, has this conflict:

Within the current Catechism, CCC 2260, "For your lifeblood I will surely require a reckoning.... Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for God made man in his own image." "This teaching remains necessary for all time."

This eternal command is from Genesis 9:6, within the Noahic Covenant, which is for all peoples and all times, and is God's Word that the death penalty shows the greatest of respect for innocent life, the opposite of the Bishops' claims, as is very well known.

The Bishops' chosen prudential judgement of "bloodless" and "non-lethal" are both secular determinations which contradict the eternal teaching of Genesis 9:6, "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed" and the Bishops pick  . . . the secular.

2) The Truth:

This is another non-disclosure by the Nebraska Bishops, undermining the truth and their flock:

In reference to the death penalty errors by Pope John Paul II in his Evangelium Vitae (EV - 1995) and the wrongful inclusion of those errors into the amended Section 2267 of the CCC, Kevin L. Flannery S.J., Consultor CDF, writes:

“The most reasonable conclusion to draw from this discussion is that, once again, the Catechism is simply wrong from an historical point of view. Traditional Catholic teaching did not contain the restriction enunciated by Pope John Paul II (within Evangelium Vitae -  EV)." (3).

That EV restriction was the foundation for the recent (1997) error filled amendment, CCC 2267, to Church teaching on the death penalty (1, 4) and without that foundation those recent changes can be found invalid.

Flannery continues: “The realm of human affairs is a messy one, full of at least apparent inconsistency and incoherence, and the recent teaching of the Catholic Church on capital punishment — vitiated, as I intend to show, by errors of historical fact and interpretation—is no exception.” (3).

A review of some of the problems within the amended CCC 2267  (4).

NOTE: Flannery was appointed by Pope John Paul II.


3)  More Bishops' False Teachings:

The Bishops state:

"According to Catholic teaching, the state may impose the death penalty if this punishment is the only available means to protect society. Therefore, this option should not be exercised when, other, non lethal means, more respectful of human life are available." "This principled Catholic response is shaped by our commitment to the life and dignity of every human person and the common good." (5). 


Additional False Teachings of the Bishops:

a) As already established (4), there is no such prior Catholic teaching as "the state may impose the death penalty if this punishment is the only available means to protect society." (3,4).

b) The Bishops, again, intentionally leave out important Catholic teachings, paragraphs (1) and (2), above, and footnote 1, below, misleading their flock.

c) Establishing a false and irrational standard, that being: if the death penalty "is the only available means to protect society" -  which should not be accepted by anyone.

d) "This principled Catholic response (in support of the death penalty) is shaped by our commitment to the life and dignity of every human person and the common good.", which was used as the support for the death penalty for 2000 years and still is. It is as if the Bishops had never reviewed Church tradition with the death penalty (1). 

In addition, within the most recent Catechism, in CCC 2258-2266 the standard is a requirement to protect innocents from unjust aggressors: 

CCC 2265: "the common good requires rendering the unjust aggressor unable to inflict harm." 

Now, within CCC 2267, the Bishops and the CCC redefine "common good" requiring us to do everything we can "not to render the unjust aggressor unable to inflict harm.", or, to put it another way "the unjust aggressor must always be able to harm, again" -  the opposite of 2258-2266.

Using reason and tradition the standard is:

 1) what is the most just sanction for the crime committed, reasserted as the primary objective, as "redress", in the most recent CCC:


The primary objective of sanction is to "redress the disorder caused by the offense" (CCC 2266), not protection . . .  yet, even then  . . . 

2) which sanction will, after the primary objective, protect society to a greater degree than other sanctions (6), the important, secondary consideration?

The Bishops know that to be the death penalty, as previously reviewed (1,6).

The additional reason that "the only available means" is a false teaching is that it, intentionally, avoids reality.

For example, for decades, the Church thought there was another available means to protect children from sinful, sexual predator priests. The Church was wrong, then, as everyone, now, knows, just as She is, now with Her "only available means", again, sacrificing more innocents.

Reality, you see, matters.  

In the predator priest cases, it is easy to see how the Church can make very non prudential judgments, over 40 years, observe those bad prudential judgments, sacrificing more and more innocents with Her, wrongly, selecting Her chosen available means.

It is hard to see how She is so, obviously, making that same error, again, with her newest, error filled death penalty position, and . . . again, sacrificing more innocents (6).

How the Bishops and the Church are, utterly, clueless to that is simply astounding, in light of the priest sex scandal, which was in full public mode at the same time these amendments were made, again, putting many more innocents at risk.

For example, there is the "means" of the state of the criminal justice system, in the US and, then, there is reality, since 1973:

Some 16,000 innocents have been murdered by those known murderers that we have allowed to murder, again - recidivist murderers (6) and

Some 400,000 innocents have been murdered by those known criminals we have allowed to harm, again - recidivist criminals. (6)

Neither the Church nor Nebraska Bishops will acknowledge known reality (6), thereby sacrificing more innocent lives  . . .  again.

The Bishops look the other way, insisting on the fictional standard - "only available means", in opposition to reality,  thereby sacrificing more innocents.

 The Bishops state: "It just so happens that in our time the Church has assessed the options and has come to the prudential conclusion that in our modern era non-lethal means are present practically everywhere. Therefore, the use of the death penalty should be “very rare, if not practically nonexistent.” (2).

 . . .  which is all rebutted by very well known reality, over and over, again, in the US, as elsewhere, as detailed above and here (6), as the Bishops are aware.


c) As is well known by many, inclusive of the Bishops, the foundation for 2000 years of pro death penalty Catholic teaching is based upon "respect for human life", a "commitment to the life and dignity of every human person and the common good."

What the Bishops and other anti death penalty Church leadership are, now, saying is that for 2000 years the Church supported a sanction, the death penalty, that did not respect human life, was against life, against the dignity of every human person and against the common good.

Thoughtful Catholics understand that such is not true and cannot be true.


4) The Bishops Four "FALSE" Reasons to Abolish the Death Penalty (5)

a) "Re-instating the death penalty would risk innocent lives". - False

Bishops' false teachings:

--  As the Bishops well know and have never rebutted (1), innocents are better protected with the death penalty, in three ways, than with life without parole (LWOP) (6).

The Bishop's death penalty repeal position will sacrifice more innocent lives.

--  Bishops: "Take for example the story of Kirk Bloodsworth. Kirk spent nearly 9 years on death row in Maryland after he was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death for the rape and murder of Donna Hamilton." " . . . more than 150 people sentenced to death have been released from death row because they were acquitted, dismissed from prosecution or pardoned based upon evidence of innocence." (4)

More false problems for the Bishops

Bloodsworth was never at risk of execution. He was on death row for 2 years, not 9, and then 7 years serving a life sentence, prior to release.

In the modern era death penalty, post Gregg v Georgia (1976),  Maryland has executed four murderers, who appealed their sentences and were executed, averaging 12 years from sentence to execution, with the shortest being 9 years.

Three time Maryland murderer, Thanos, waived his appeals and was executed in 1994, 2 years after  his sentencing.

Thanos, to the victim's families:  "(your murdered childrens') cries bring laughter from the darkest caverns of my soul. I don't believe I could satisfy my thirst yet in this matter unless I was to be able to dig these brats' bones up out of their graves right now and beat them into powder and urinate on them and then stir it into a murky yellowish elixir and serve it up to their loved ones".

Thanos murdered Billy Winebrenner, 16, and his girlfriend, Melody Pistorio, 14, during a robbery and murdered  Gregory Allen Taylor, 18, in another crime, for which he was, also, sentenced to death.

--  The 150 (now 156) represent, maybe 36 actually innocent people sent to death row (0.4% of the total), all but one of which has been set free, with that one dying on death row, from cancer, just as he would have serving LWOP.

It is a remarkable record of accuracy.

There is no proof of an innocent executed in the US, at least since the 1930s.

Yet we have:

Some 16,000 innocents have been murdered by those known murderers that we have allowed to murder, again - recidivist murderers (6) and

Some 400,000 innocents have been murdered by those known criminals we have allowed to harm, again - recidivist criminals (6).

A rational assessment would be that the Bishops real concern is not innocents at risk, but only sparing murderers.

Exactly as Catholic theologian Steven Long assessed:

"The misbegotten application of categories of speech appropriate in regard to the murder of innocents to the vastly different application of just penalty for grave evil, is symptomatic of a society that can garner more support to spare the guilty than to save the innocent."

"The crowd still wants Barabbas." (1b)


b) "Reinstating the death penalty would be cruel to victims' families." (4). - False

The Bishops' hypocrisy and false teachings:

1) As per the video (5), because of long appeals times, the Bishops contend that the death penalty harms the victims' families. The Bishops, constantly, use false, secular anti death penalty rhetoric, as they do, here. How about reality:

These problems are not the death penalty's fault. It is the fault of the sanction's managers - the legislature, governor, attorney generals, judges, etc.

As the Bishops are well aware:

--   There have been nearly 1000 executions in other states, over the last 20 years, when Nebraska has had none and

--  Virginia has executed 112 murderers, since 1976, and has done so within 7 years of appeals, on average.

The Bishops are very aware that Nebraska has the "means available" to duplicate those two examples, but chose a less responsible path, instead.

2) From the 168 victims in the Oklahoma City Bombing, the Bishops use only one anti death penalty voice, Bud Welch, whose daughter Julie was murdered in that bombing, to speak in opposition to the death penalty.

The Bishops also presented Mariam Thimm Kelle, whose brother, Jim,  was, gruesomely, tortured over a long period of time, then murdered in  a capital crime, by murderer Michael Ryan, Her complaints were that appeals go on and on and that way too much attention is paid to the murderer but not to her brother.

The Bishops act as if they just missed it. How?

Reality Opposes the Bishops, Again.

It appears that in excess of 95% of the murder victims' survivors, from that bombing, are in favor of the death penalty (7), reflecting other examples, with similar huge support percentages, from other specific death penalty eligible murders (7).

Did the Bishops show any interest in the opinions of those loved ones, who, overwhelmingly, support the death penalty? None.

Such is common for anti death penalty folks, who often cause more harm (8) to those victim survivors, who support the justice of the death penalty, as well as its uncontested ability to protect additional innocents, to a higher degree than any other sanction (6).

Thimm Kelle is right to complain, but Nebraska, as other states have the means necessary to shorten appeals, as detailed and as the Bishops well know.

Anti death penalty folks and the media, overwhelmingly, concentrate on the murderers and not their victims (8). It would be great if the Bishops would start a public campaign to help change that.  Possibly, the Bishops could start with this group (9).


c) The Bishops say the death penalty is too costly:  "It is well established that pursuing the death penalty results in considerably greater costs than life imprisonment. The non partisan Death Penalty Information Center concluded, in 2013, that Nebraska had spent $100 million on death penalty cases since 1976."

More Bishop False Teachings

--  The Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) is a very well known anti death penalty group, which perpetrates some of the greatest deceptions in the death penalty debate (10).

--  The Bishops are, completely, unaware, because they do not fact check.

--  The proof for the $100 million cost claim? It doesn't exist.

--  If the Bishops did fact check, they would know that some studies find the death penalty is less costly than life without parole (LWOP) (11) and that many of the studies finding the death penalty more expensive than LWOP are, completely, unreliable (11).

      But, the Bishops will not fact check.

---  The Bishops are well aware that in Nebraska's last legislative session, that three fiscal notes found no state savings in death penalty repeal.

Such non disclosure reflects, again, very poorly, on the Bishops.

As far as I know, there are no details to support the fiscal notes, which were, allegedly, based upon inquiries to all those state agencies which deal with the death penalty, all of whom, allegedly, stated that with death penalty repeal there would be little to no effect on their budgets.

d)  The Bishops find that the death penalty less humane than LWOP.

The Bishops should review the eternal reasons for the death penalty, detailed in 2000 years of Catholic teachings (1), as opposed to relying upon the secular.

          2015: Year of the Awesome Movies!        

Hi everybody! A few months ago there was a viral blog going around where MyIGNers had to pick games they were looking forward to in 2015, and i was having trouble trying to think of enough to fill up a list. However, that isn't the case with movies! So many amazing movies are coming out this year, and while I know there will be a few nice surprises from indie movies and smaller films, it's the big budget movies that have all my attention this year. Here are my top ten movies for 2015:

 

*Update*

Batman v Superman Part One: Enter the Knight

batman_vs_superman_movie_poster_v2_1_by_disent-d6kf6pkOk, the rumor for this one just hit today and there is a good chance Batman vs Superman will be split, and part one will be released this year. That will easily put this one into my top 5, but for now it remains here. I hope it's true though.

 

#10 - Tomorrowland

tomorrowland_xlg

I didn't know much about this movie besides it taking its name from the section in Disneyland, but after I saw the trailer I was impressed. Although, I think the main reason I'm excited for this movie is that I know there will be a Disney Trader Pin that comes with it. :D

 

#9 - The Good Dinosaur

the_good_dinosaur___poster_minimalist_by_jorislaquittant-d6na3k6

Now this one still leaves me feeling reservation. The Good Dinosaur has been in development since before 2009, and it has had a lot of story problems; however, it is Pixar, so I think it will be fine. Plus, it's a movie about dinosaurs, so of course it will be good!

 

#8 - The Peanuts Movie

Peanuts-movie-poster

So I've been a fan of Snoopy and the Peanuts since I was a little taquito. I've seen all the old classics, have a few books with the old comics from the 60s and 70s, and now my younger brothers are fans as well. I look forward to taking them to see this just like I did with the Lego Movie.

 

#7 - Terminator Genisys

terminator-genisys-poster-411x600

Now here's a movie I was not on board with when they first announced it, but they had me after I saw the trailer. I love time travel, so the story really intrigues me. Oh, and it has the freaking Khaleesi in it! :D

 

#6 - Ant Man

Ant-Man-Comic-Con_612x942

To be honest, I've never been a fan of Ant Man. I didn't like his character in the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, nor the cartoon movies, but I like that they're going with Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as Ant Man instead of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). I know some people were upset about this but there are going to be flashback scenes with Shield and Howard Stark, so I'm sure we'll see a young Pym being the first Ant Man.

 

#5 - Spectre

bond-24-B4AizyxIUAA5bMT-lg

Being a pretty big (is that a fat joke?) James Bond fan, I jumped for joy when Bond 24 finally got a name and a release date. There is just something timeless to this franchise, and I love watching them. Also, rumor has it that this will be a return to form of classic Bond films; so more gadgets and fornicating here we come!

 

 

#4 - Star Wars: The Force Awakens

MV5BMjM4MjI2MDMwM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODI2MDgzMzE@._V1_SX640_SY720_

This just feels wrong. Not the movie mind you...but placing it at number 4. I love Star Wars. I love everything about it! The Prequels (yes, you read that right), the shows, the games...heck just the whole EU (RIP) as a whole! I love Star Wars. I'm just not sold on this movie yet. Hopefully the full trailer will turn it around for me.

 

#3 - Jurassic World

Jurassic-World-Poster-Official

Now I'm a huge Star Wars fan, but I think I'm an even bigger Jurassic Park fan (as you can see here). Growing up in the 90s and loving dinosaurs, Jurassic Park was my Star Wars. So while I'm excited for this, I can't help but wonder if these will be my prequels.

 

#2 - Ratchet & Clank

October20th48x78-720x1165

I still remember when they announced this in 2013. My jaw hit the ground, and I flipped out. I always knew the story of Ratchet & Clank would make a great movie, and it already looks very Pixar in it's style and animation. This movie will be a retelling of the first game, but it will have more story elements added from the Future series. I can't freaking wait! Plus, there will also be a remaster of the first game coming to PS4!!!

 

#1 - Avengers: Age of Ultron

avengers2posterdone3-600x800

fkjaslfk;jasdlk;fjvjw avengnerjers!!Jlkfejlaskdfjs df sdacaptianljamercia@!!!!1!11!!!fjaslkfjl skf hulk!!`11!!!kjfsdkfjskjcivilwar!1!!J1! jaskjjfaklsj'QJSKDFAjskejrthanos!!!1!~! sjal;rkejljfreakininfinitywar!!~~!111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But seriously, I am beyond excited for this one. Not only is it going to rock my socks, but it will introduce so many new story lines in the MCU.

 

Do you guys agree? Let me know which movies your looking forward to in 2015.

One of the great benefits and/or detriments of reading Marvel's serially-published comics series in collected trade paperback format is that you generally miss out on the online conversations about particular issues of particular comic books as they are happening. Captain America: Steve Rogers Vol. 1--Hail Hydra, for example, collects the first six issues of one of the two Nick Spencer-written Captain America titles, and is where Spencer's long-term plans for the franchise take their controversial turn, a turn that ultimately leads to the currently-unfolding Secret Empire event series.

The controversy associated with this particular Marvel comic has to do with the plot itself, as opposed to the other sorts of controversies Marvel comics are occasionally embroiled in, like that thing with the X-Men comic, or everyone freaking out about hearing part of an out-of-context quote from David Gabriel, or publishing tentacle rape porn on the cover or whatever. As I have overheard on Twitter, and read in at least one pretty solid article explaining it all to me, this is the comic book story in which it is revealed that the original Captain America Steve Rogers, the superhero so patriotic that he wears the American flag for his work clothes, was actually a sleeper agent for Hydra, the Marvel Universe's Nazi splinter group.

This always confused me, as superheroes making heel turns is a convention not much younger than superhero comics in general. Any superhero who has been around long enough will make a heel turn at some point (and few Marvel heroes have been around as long as Captain America!), and these turns are always rather quickly undone. Even when it seems as if the heel turn is meant to be a permanent one--think Green Lantern Hal Jordan becoming Parallax--it gets undone. The logic behind the story seemed pretty obvious to me from a distance, as the more noble and good the hero, the more dramatic it is when he takes his heel turn (This is why DC seems positively obsessed with publishing stories in which Superman is the villain and other heroes have to fight him; generally these happen in out-of-continuity stories, but Superman has broken bad in the "real" DC Universe too, in the Dominus storyline circa 1998-ish...although, as is often the case, things weren't quite what they seemed at the time).

The other thing that confused me about people getting so upset about a pretty basic super-comic trope that is so obviously meant to be temporary and easily reversed is that the story preceding this one, the "Avengers: Standoff" crossover that involved the various Avengers and Avengers-related comics, had for its climax Captain America being dramatically altered by Kobik, a sentient Cosmic Cube.

(If you're unfamiliar with these objects, they are, like so much else of worth in the Marvel Universe, the creation of the Jack Kirby/Stan Lee collaboration. They are essentially wish-granting maguffins, capable of allowing whoever wields them to completely alter reality in any way, shape or form. Several classic Marvel storylines have revolved around bad guys like Thanos, Doctor Doom or The Red Skull trying to get their hands on them, and/or heroes having access to a cube and being tempted to misuse it.)

At the beginning of "Standoff," Steve Rogers had already lost his functional immortality, and had turned into something approaching the old man he should be as a World War II vet (he kept the totally ripped physique though, for some reason). Kobik restored his youth to him, and if Steve was going to suddenly become a bad guy, to suddenly be revealed to have actually always been a bad guy all along, well then, it was a good bet that Kobik did it to him. And, it turns out, she did.

Now writer Nick Spencer is obviously milking this Cap-betraying-everything-he-believed-in storyline for everything it's worth, drawing it out to the length of multiple trade paperbacks, involving the whole Marvel Universe (as line-wide event stories like Secret Empire dictate) and, in what may be much of what makes some readers uncomfortable, trying to put forward cogent arguments for embracing fascism, in an attempt to make his villains more than just cartoon mustache-twirlers.

But boil this plot point down to its essence, and basically Captain America got zapped with a gun called "The Villainizer," and the ultimate solution is almost certainly going to be the equivalent of someone switching The Villainizer to "reverse" and zapping him again.

I just couldn't understand why people were getting so upset about the storyline itself, and most of the arguments I was seeing had to do with the story working the way Spencer intended it to. Like, anyone who thinks Captain America allying himself with Hydra or fascists or Nazi-like groups is something the good Captain America would never do, well, that's the whole point, isn't it? What if instead of socking old Hitler in the jaw, Captain America was shaking his hand?

(I do understand that there are other reasons to be upset with Marvel around their promotion of the Captain America: Steve Rogers/Secret Empire storyline that had to do with marketing more than story content. For example, I understand Marvel sent local comic shops signage and other materials so that they could play along as if they too were secret fronts for Hydra, something that likely seemed pretty distasteful given the way Spencer was characterizing his new version of Hydra--ultra-nationalist, xenophobic, right-wingers of the sort that had just helped elect Donald Trump president of the United States of America, and were--and are--seemingly on the rise in Europe.)

So as I first started reading this collection, which includes Free Comic Book Day 2016 (Captain America) by Jesus Saiz and then the first six issues of Steve Rogers, drawn by Saiz, Javier Pina and Miguel Sepulveda, I was doing so with an eye for finding what exactly it is that so riled readers. I looked, and I looked and I kept looking, and, to be honest, I never really found it. Where the book is at its most politically relevant, it seems to be criticizing today's alt-right, as well as nationalism and racism in general, but from what I had seen online, most of the criticism leveled at the book and at Marvel was coming from the left (I should here note that Twitter feed is pretty liberal-heavy, perhaps even exclusively so. Maybe those to the right-of-center who read Marvel comics also hate this storyline; I don't know.). There is a speech near the end that I think may have bugged some people, but we'll get to that in a bit.

Maybe it's the next volume, , or Secret Empire proper where Spencer seems to embrace fascism  or starts to take potshots at the left, but there's nothing in here I could see as offensive. But let's look as closely as we can, shall we?

To illustrate the importance Marvel was placing on this story, they devoted one of their two 2016 FCBD giveaways to it. The other? Civil War II. Like Civil War II, this eventually leads to a modern Marvel event series of  the greatest scale at which the publisher engages:  A mini-series functioning as the event's backbone, a supporting miniseries and tie-in issues or story arcs appearing in pretty much everything else Marvel publishes.

My local comic shopkeep opined once that Secret Empire would probably have been fine if it were just a Captain America story-arc, and not blown-up to fit a Civil War II-sized event template. Given how much build-up went into it, I suppose it would have to be something sizable, but he was probably right; perhaps something along the scale of "Standoff" (which is technically a first act, or at least a prelude, to Secret Empire) would have worked better and annoyed fewer readers and retailers? Something involving the two Captain America books, the relevant Avengers books and maybe a handful of books that could use a boost of sales and interest?

In other words, a more franchise-specific crossover event, rather than a line-wide one.

This 10-page story (the back of the FCBD book featured a Spider-Man Peter Parker story that's not reprinted here) features acting SHIELD Commander (and Steve Rogers' girlfriend) Sharon Carter at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, a scene inter-cut with those featuring the Captains America fighting the reconstituted Hydra (they were seemingly wiped out by Sam Wilson in All-New Captain America Vol. 1: Hydra Ascendant). Carter is on the bridge of some helicarrier, feeding intel to the Captains while Rick Jones acts as their Oracle. A terrorist attack is imminent. Rogers is in Austria, beating up a a Hydra cell and using threats of greater violence to get the location of the attack out of the last one left conscious.

It's in New York City, where Captain America Sam Wilson, the new Falcon Joaquin Torres and actual falcon Redwing are on hand to foil the attack. But! At the same time, a hotel in Brussels is bombed, killing civilians. The Senate is mad at Carter, and then Captain America strides in to try to sell them on something.

Meanwhile, The Red Skull watches the TV news and sips tea served to him by his daughter Sin, who has her face again (Um, she lost her face and became basically a female Red Skull previously).

This new version of Hydra sounds a bit like a cross between the alt-right and ISIS, as difficult as such a thing might be to imagine (The one place those two diametrically opposed groups crossover in real life? Social media presence). This version of Hydra's politics are basically far-right, but their tactics are ones that, in the 21st century, are of the sort mostly practiced by terrorists whose general philosophy is grounded in some radical (and usually warped) version of Islam.

In this particular issue, we mainly see the tactics discussed, not any politics, of which the book is weirdly generic, presenting the new Hyrda "spreading a message of intolerance and a cruelty to a lost generation of young people looking for some sense--any sense--of purpose...it encourages violence and savagery over the rule of law."

Spencer gives Cap a pretty good dig at congress, noting that while he and SHIELD failed to stop the second, secret prong of the attack, they all could do better, "Including the committee's members, who were on a six-week recess when this attack occurred." Burn!

Then Cap asks them to pass a formal declaration of war against Hydra, which is kinda funny in a not-at-all-funny way when one considers that congress was never receptive to issuing a formal declaration of war against ISIS upon President Barack Obama's request, but the U.S. still continues to operate against ISIS and other terrorist organizations under the increasingly legally-dubious September 2001 Authorization For Use of Military Force Against Terrorists, which granted the president the authority "to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons." ISIS didn't exist then, so a convincing case could be made that the presidents fighting them--first Obama, now Trump--are doing so without formal authority from congress, who are reluctant to "own" any part of military actions.

Maybe the Marvel Universe's version of the United States Congress is less politically cowardly than ours...?

The glimpses of Hydra agents we see, either in the field or in training, show that the group is entirely male, and mostly white, though there are a handful of black guys in there. Crossbones and a pair of two of the traditionally-garbed Hydra agents, in their green and yellow uniforms, are seen observing training.

If the FCBD special was a prelude, this is the actual start of the "Hail Hydra" story arc, which backtracks a bit (we'll see Sin get her real face back, for example, and more on the business with congress). It is also the start of Steve's new origin story, or at least his new pre-origin story, as each of the issues that make up the rest of the trade will contain sections set in the 1920s, when Steve is still a very young boy in New York City.

These scenes all have more stylized coloring, all grays, blacks and browns with striking bits of red. In this issue's flashbacks, these first show Steve's father slapping his mother in the middle of the street in front of Steve, when suddenly a woman dressed like a flapper intervenes; she judo tosses Mr. Rogers, and introduces herself to Mrs. Rogers as Elisa Sinclair (Like a lot of the unfamiliar characters I encountered while reading, I Googled them later on to see if they were pre-existing characters or not; she seems to be a brand new one). In two later scenes in this book, she first takes Steve and his mom out to a fancy dinner and, as she's walking them home, she tells Sarah Rogers about "a sort of civic league" she's putting together, one where they "mostly just get together and talk about whats in the newspapers, or books we've read....Look for ways to help the community."

The flyer for the group? It features the Hydra logo--a red skull with six tentacles radiating from it--and the words "Secret Meeting; New York Chapter; The Hydra Society."
Looks legit.
Here and in later issues, Spencer is essentially trying to demonstrate how a woman like Sarah Rogers, suffering from crushing poverty and an abusive, alcoholic husband and worried about raising a child in a destitute slum, might conceivably be attracted to such a group, particularly when she finds a charming, wealthy patron. But it's kind of hard to get past that flyer. Is there no more benign a logo than a death's head and tentacles? And "hydra" doesn't exactly bring with it the most neutral of connotations, being a mythological monster or dragon and all.

The section of the issue set in the present has a lot in common with the plot of the FCBD special. Captain America is desperately trying to stop a Hydra terrorist plot, this one involving a suicide bomber on a train, while Sharon Carter and Rick Jones communicate with him via ear-piece. A couple of other patriotic heroes serve as back-up, but rather than Sam Wilson and company, it is Jack Flag and Free Spirit, two minor pre-existing Marvel characters I had to Google.

Meanwhile, Steve's narration tells us the story of the young man wearing the suicide vest, and how he fell in with Hydra. Steve does his best to talk him out of detonating his vest in the train engine, after Rick had remotely uncoupled it from the rest of the trains so no one other than Cap and the bomber are in danger, but he goes ahead and pushes the button anyway.

From there, Maria Hill gives Captain America and company the location of Baron Zemo, who they have been hunting since "Standoff." Zemo and the captive Cosmic Cube expert Doctor Erik Selvig are in the fictional city of Bagalia. The plan is to rescue Selvig and capture Zemo as they fly away in a jet above the city, but things go quite unexpectedly. While Zemo and Captain America are fighting, Jack Flag unexpectedly arrives and KOs Zemo. That's when Captain America, his narration boxes now dripping with equal parts regret and determination, grabs the young hero, hurls him out of the jet and turns to Selvig and says, "Hail Hydra."
So yeah, I'm sure that was a pretty big "Whaaaaaaa?!" moment the Wednesday it was released.

As for politics, Rick is locked in hacker vs. hacker electronic combat for control of the train Hydra was attacking, and his opponent had the user name of "Battlestar Johngaltica," to let you know where that particular Hydra agent falls on the political spectrum. The suicide bomber's life story is a sad one: Poverty, no education, crime, prison, drugs and, eventually, a meeting where The Red Skull speaks to a room full of Americans. Spencer devotes a full page to Skull's speech, and it's a long one.

I won't quote it at length here or anything, but rather than stock master race, Nazi stuff, Spencer has the Skull talking in the language of modern European nationalism. Having just returned from Germany, the Skull said what he found there was "an invading army...These so-called "refugees"-- millions of them-- marching across the continent, bringing their fanatical beliefs and their crime with them." He doesn't say the words "Muslim" or "Islam" or even place names like Syria, Iraq or the Middle East, but he doesn't have to...I'm assuming the reader will hear those words in his speech, and maybe, like me, wonder if those words should or shouldn't have been in the script after all. Is this another example of Marvel trying to publish a political comic that almost takes a stand, but backs down when it comes to the point of, like, drawing direct parallels to the real world?
Spencer has the Skull go on to note that Germany and America "did not see eye to eye" during the war, but that they had some things in common, like believing in the sacredness of borders and cultural uniformity, and he then goes on to talk about America being under siege in the same way Europe is (again, he never says "Mexican" or "Muslim") and even speaks scornfully of the political correctness of modern America culture, which brands anyone who speaks out against those laying siege to their culture as "bigots." This should sound awfully familiar, yes?

The bomber, by the way, fell in with a white supremacist gang while in prison, for protection rather than because of any genuine hatred in his heart, but once he joins Hydra, it seems to be a white supremacist-like organization, as he is forced to stand by and do nothing while his fellows beat a man to death "for no reason, other than the color of his skin."

Again then, Hydra is presented as falling somewhere between the far-right of American politics, using some language that would have sounded perfectly natural coming out of, say, Donald Trump's mouth during the previous presidential campaign or plenty of fixtures of the right-of-center media, and an actual neo-Nazi group, but, as the Skull sells it, it seems like nothing so much as it does a modern far-right European party reacting to the influx of immigrants and refugees following the Syrian civil war. (To be fair, Spencer also has the Red Skull speak a few lines that could be considered either leftist or libertarian, regarding the moneyed class' control of politics, but in our last scrambled election cycle, that was one of the few rhetorical targets shared by both Bernie Sanders and Trump.)

Unlike the previous issue, this one is narrated by The Red Skull himself, and it basically lays out exactly how Captain America was made to turn, and how it is that it is being revealed that not only is he a Hydra sleeper agent, but he's always been one--not so much an "Everything you thought you knew about Captain America is wrong!" story so much as Spencer using a Marvel Universe maguffin to explain the story. As it was always safe to assume, it's the Cosmic Cube.

At some point in the past, denoted simply as "years ago" (there are no asterisks and editor's notes directing us to any past storyline in particular), Captain America threw his mighty shield at The Red Skull as the villain was reaching for his Cosmic Cube, in the process severing part of the Skull's arm and shattering the cube.

That is the cube that eventually gained sentience in a SHIELD lab, becoming the little girl Kobik. Because Kobik had a particularly affinity for him based on their time together, she sought out the Red Skull and, seeing what an opportunity this presented him with, he opted to nurture her, indoctrinating her into complete and total belief in his philosophy regarding Hydra.

At one point, in demonstrating her near-infinite powers, she "fixes" Doctor Selvig by rewriting his personal history so that he was now always a secret Hydra agent in service to the Red Skull.

From there, we basically get a the comic book equivalent of a villain monologue, as we see the events of "Standoff" from The Red Skull's point of view, and learn that it was he and Kobik who conceived of mind-wiping villains to put them in a sort of perfect prison, knowing how it would ultimately all blow up, and how the events would help Skull and hurt SHIELD in the long run. And, of course, during the moment in which she restores Rogers' youth and vitality, she does to him what she had previously done to Selvig, completely rewriting reality to alter Captain America.

In a very literal sense then, this isn't the "real" Captain America, but an in-universe reboot of the "real" Captain America into an alternate version of himself.

Honestly, seeing as it happened in the second issue of Spencer's series, it seems more perplexing still that anyone was all that upset over the storyline, as Spencer could hardly have been more up front about the fact that he was using as blatant and blunt a plot-device as possible to force the square peg of Captain America into the round hole of Hydra sleeper agent, and...and telegraphing that the same device could/would be used to revert Cap to his normal self at the end of the story. Again, this issue occurs immediately after the cliffhanger ending in which we learn that Captain America is a Hydra agent.

There's a scene where we see Red Skull laying in bed with Kobik, reading her a bedtime story about how awesome Hydra is, and she has a child-friendly version of the Hydra logo on her bedspread, a smiley face with smooth tentacles, which looks more like a happy jellyfish than a death's head seeking to grasp the whole world. Maybe Ms. Sinclair coulda used something closer like that for the logo of her 1920s Hydra book club...?

There's three story threads in this issue, set in different times. In 1926, we see Sarah Rogers at one of Elisa's Hydra Book Club meetings, where the hostess discovers that Sarah is wearing a scarf over her hair in order to conceal a particularly nasty-looking injury inflicted upon her by her husband. Later, near the climax of the issue, we see Mr. Rogers being chased, beaten and ultimately thrown into the river by two men, while Elisa watches.

In the present, there's a particularly peculiar scene that reminded me of many, many Star Wars comics. Cap strips off his shirt, paints a Hydra symbol over his chest and kneels before a blue hologram of The Red Skull. These scenes are so reminiscent of Darth Vader's holographic meetings with The Emperor that I can't imagine it is a coincidence. The content is even similar, as Cap reports to his superior what happened, The Skull rages at his subordinate's failures and, before it's all over, we see that Cap, like Vader, is totally plotting against his superior.

And, finally, in the recent past, we continue the story of what went down in Bagalia, which is what Cap is reporting to The Skull. It turns out that the fall didn't actually kill Jack Flag, but it's pretty touch-and-go, and he's unconscious, being loaded onto a stretcher. The locals, who, remember, are all villains, begin to show an interest in SHIELD being there, and the law-less land's "sheriff" The Taskmaster shows up to shove a sword right through Sharon's hand. Cap arrives just in time to beat the hell out of Taskmaster in a scene that demonstrates that Cap may be a few stripes short of a flag in a public way for the first time.

During the conversation between Cap and Skull, the latter berates the former for his repeatedly showing mercy and questioning Skull's ruthlessness--it appears that even as a bad guy, Captain America is something of a good bad guy. The cliffhanger reveals just how far Captain America is willing to go to challenge the Skull: It turns out he faked Doctor Sevlig's death in order to recruit him to help him overthrow the Red Skull so he can assume control of Hydra for himself.

See? Very Vader/Emperor, isn't it?

Captain America: Steve Rogers #4

And now, I'm sorry to report, the inevitable happens: The mandatory Civil War II tie-begins, although interetsingly Spencer keeps Captain America on the sidelines, and, for the purposes of this book, the events of the Captain Marvel-vs.-Iron Man conflict is mostly seen through the prism of how The Red Skull and Cap regard the potential effects of Ulysses and the "war" on their own machinations. Meanwhile, in the pages of Civil War II, Bendis wrote Captain America as if here weren't secretly a Hydra sleeper agent. It's possible that Bendis didn't know what Spencer was up to, but unlikely. It seems like he simply chose to play Cap as so deep undercover that a reader of Civil War II wouldn't guess that something was off about Cap.

This is, again, a very busy issue with a lot going on in multiple timelines.

In the past, Sarah Rogers is packing and intent on getting her and little Steve the hell out of town, as she knows Elisa had her husband killed, despite the cover story that he was simply so drunk that he fell into the river and drowned. When Elisa confronts them and Steve is told to hide under the bed, one of Elisa's goons inadvertently kills Sarah, right in front of young Steve. Elisa finds him when he tries to run away.

In the present, Steve talks to Selvig in their new secret science base, and we see a flashback to how, exactly he acquired a secret science base. It involved killing The Red Ghost and his Super-Apes, which is a terrible thing. Hydra Cap may be more merciful than The Red Skull would like, but he has no compunction about slaughtering super-intelligent apes, apparently.

While he's talking to Selvig, we get reviews of plot points from the recent past, like the events of "Standoff," as well as checking in with what's going on with SHIELD (They're trying to figure out what to do with Maria Hill, exactly, while Sharon Carter is asking congress to sign some sort of super-Patriot Act that would give SHIELD broad, martial law-like authority to fight Hydra within the U.S.), what's up with Flag (he's in a coma; Free Spirit and Rick Jones are keeping him company in the hopes that he awakes), Steve knows where Kobik is and has all along (hanging out in the pages of the latest Thunderbolts series, I guess? This was before that was canceled?) and there's a reminder that the new Quasar character from "Standoff" is still a character that totally exists.

Despite Tony and Carol's mugs on the cover, in this issue we only see a few events from Civil War II, which Cap kind of talks over, so they seem to be here mainly as a marker of when this is going on in relation to the event series: There's the argument at Tony's victory (over the Celestial Destructor) party, there's Thanos (who Pina draws in a full broke-back position!) during the ambush sequence, and then there's Ulysses being discovered by the Inhumans...in that order, even though that's not the order in which those events occurred.
Cap concludes with another dramatic reveal, which I guess every single issue in this run ends with: He asks Selvig to help him kill The Red Skull, so they can save Hydra from him.

There's little in the way of politics in this issue, and most of it is pretty vague--corruption is bad, etc--but Cap does seem to distinguish this new Hydra from his own vision of it. He says Hydra isn't "a collection of marauding thugs, preaching blind hatred and intolerance," and those words appear over a panel showing a trio of men firing automatic weapons at targets. There are three of them; two white guys in sleeveless undershirts, one with a clearly visible Hydra tattoo, and then a black guy wearing combat gear. The third oone of them is holding some sort of huge machinegun with a belt, and is disintegrating the cardboard target he's firing at.

Interesting that the last issue revealed that even as a bad guy, Captain America is less of a bad guy than his archenemy, and here it becomes clear that even when reality is re-written to put them on the same team, their essential conflict is still there. The reasons might be different now, but it's still going to be Captain America fighting The Red Skull.

Captain America: Steve Rogers #5

As the image of Captain America and Iron Man indicates, this is another kinda sorta Civil War II tie-in, and it's one that...complicates the Civil War II narrative.

In the flashback sequences, we see young Steve Rogers being driven in a car by Elisa and her two goons, crying for his mom the whole way. She calms him down by telling him that he's very important and has a very special destiny, and his mother is merely very ill and needs time to rest...but if he is able to persevere he will see his mother again. She drops him off with two men who introduce themselves as Daniel Whitehall and Doctor Sebastian Fenhoff (Post-reading Googling reveals the former to be the real name of a Hydra agent named Kraken who first appeared during Brian Michael Bendis' Secret Warriors book, while the latter is the father of long-time Cap villain and Kirby/Lee creation Doctor Faustus) .

Behind closed doors, Fenhoff strenuously objects to at taking Steven in for...whatever they do at what looks like a weird private school for little boys. When he is unmoved by Elisa's argument that Steven has a strong aura and calls her a charlatan, she somehow makes Fenhoff start vomiting up blood, and then it suddenly stops, leaving no trace of blood on him, as if it was all in his mind.

In the present sequences, this is basically a behind-the-scenes version of Civil War II (I can't help wonder what one might have made of this had one not read Civil War II first).

At the Celestial Destructor victory party, when Medusa and The Inhumans introduce Cap and the others to Ulysses, he calls off a major terrorist attack in Sokovia by Hydra so he can learn more.

When Cap discusses Ulysses' ability to predict future attacks with Selvig, he worries what that means for his own agenda and Selvig convinces him he must kill Ulysses to prevent him from revealing Cap ("No-- No, he's a kid--" Cap objects). Nevertheless, after the Thanos attack Caps sneaks into New Atillan and activates the glowing edge of his new gimmick-packed shield, apparently contemplating killing Ulysses--and saving us like the last five six issues of Civil War II and God only knows how many tie-ins!--when Iron Man arrives at Ulysses' bedside, and he gets into his thing with the Inhumans.

Meanwhile, Cap and Selvig cook up a plan to distract everyone by giving Ulysses something bigger to predict than Cap's plans for Hydra; apparently, the pair mail a package to Dr. Bruce Banner, which leads to a quick greatest hits of scenes form Civil War II, narrated by Cap: Dead Bruce Banner, Clint Barton on trial, She-Hulk going gray, the warehouse meeting meeting with Iron Man and Captain Marvel prior to their coming to blows and, most relevant to to Hydra, Ulysses' false vision of random financial lady Alison Greene, who Ulysses predicted was a Hydra sleeper agent, and who Carol locked up without ever charging with a crime, leading to the first (and only real) battle of the so-called "civil war."

When Cap consults The Skull's hologram to make sure that Greene is no way part of a Hydra plan, he gets instructions from the Skull on whose "side" to take: Captain Marvel's as long as she's winning, then Tony's if he starts winning, with the ultimate goal of snatching Ulysses to deliver to The Skull.

I'm not sure how well this lines up with Civil War II exactly, but I'm going to guess "fairly poorly," given that it seems odd that it was Selvig and Cap who were able to convince Banner to start experimenting on himself via anonymous letter, and he was doing so for, like, less than an issue of Civil War II before the whole superhero community came down on him like a ton of bricks. (This also implicates Captain America pretty directly in Bruce Banner's death, but there's little to no reaction from him in this issue or those that follow, which seems colder-hearted than the Captain America who is here struggling with killing good guys...and even suicidal Hydra agents. Communist super-spies and super-apes, however...)

Captain America: Steve Rogers 6
Art by Pina and color art by Rosenberg

The final issue of this collection is also a Civil War II tie-in.

In the first of the three flashback sequences, Fenhoff reports to Whitehall via letter how he continues to fail to see any real worth in young Steve Rogers, given how weak and sickly he is, even compared to other boys his age.

In the later sequences, now set in 1934, Li'l Steve attempts to runaway, but is confronted in the woods by a guy in a weird costume who introduces himself as The Kraken, and then takes off his helmet to reveal himself as Whitehall (who, it may ultimately be worth noting, looks an awful lot like an adult Steve Rogers).The final one has Whitehall delivering a long-ish speech to Steve, which is the part of the trade where Spencer offers an argument for fascism and racial or ethnic-based control of society. If anything in this book could conceivably alarm readers, I assume it is this passage, although I suppose it's worth stressing that Kraken/Whitehall is a bad guy, and this is his sales pitch to win over Steve. (Like, this past weekend I read Drawn and Quarterly's 2015 collection of  Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler, and Hitler gives voice repeatedly to his beliefs about Germany, the German people and the non-German people of the world, but at no point did I ever think, "Huh, Mizuki must believe all this stuff coming out of his protagonist's mouth, or why else would he write a comic that has these words in it?")

Again, I don't want to quote the whole thing, given it's length, but Whitehall notes that Steve's desire to run away and to be free of the Hydra indoctrination program at "The Keep" is an understandable instinct:
The country you're from, they indoctrinate you at a very young age. Prattle on about individualism, couch it in flowery words like "liberty" and "independence." But what it really means is isolation.
He goes on to talk about how that isolation leads to freedom, and how the corrupt capitalist system and the bureaucracy that supports it keeps those at the top wealthy and happy, while the lie of the American dream breaks the poor, like those in the neighborhood Steve grew up in, and that can lead to rather devastating outcomes for people like Steve's own father.

He says he believes "we are only strong when we act together," echoing sentiments from Hilary Clinton's campaign (Her slogan was literally "Stronger Together") and the Supergirl TV show, where the "S" symbol supposedly stands for "stronger together"); it might sound a bit like socialism or communism, but it also sounds a lot like democracy.

As he winds down however, it gets darker:
That is mankind's destiny. Not to be shackled in bureaucracies that work to maintain the corrupt order, but led by the strongest and most tested among us. Those willing to purge us of the parasites that  drag us down, and eager to strike at all those who would do us harm. Because those are the real threats, Steven... 
And someday they will come for us.
He continues for another page, discussing Elisa, what she did to Steve's mom, assuring her that she can and will keep her promise to reunite him with his mother no matter how impossible that might seem, and ending by an appeal for Steve to help him save the world.

There are bits of this sequence that can, and probably should, make one squirm a little. However, I think that is mostly because of how well Spencer is writing the book.  It would have been very easy for him to skip this scene, to skip the flashbacks all together, and not devote any page-space at all to showing how and why Steve Rogers decided to embrace Hydra.

In the present, Cap continues to narrate events from Civil War II, which here begin with the fight atop the Triskelion, interrupted by Ulysses' vision of Spider-Man Miles Morlaes having killed Cap on the steps of the Capitol. Then we see him go with Tony and company to their hide-out, and he and Tony have a heart-to-heart on the rooftop, which is apparently elaborate bit of psychological warfare, or at least manipulation, to get Tony off-balance for the big day.

I don't know if this contradicts Bendis' Civil War II plot, exactly, or it just wasn't made as clear in that book as it is here, but apparently Captain America, Iron Man and maybe even Spider-Man all go to the Capitol together as part of a plan to test the predictions. (And props to Spencer, by the way, for having Rick Jones say out loud: "But seriously--No one here has seen Minority Report?")

When Selvig tries to talk Captain America out of going, he says that during the vision, he looked not just as his own dead body in Spider-Man's hands, but he looked around and saw that his death would be "for the glory of Hydra." Weirdly then, this brings up another part of Civil War II that looks like it will be/was changed by comics published after it. First Bendis' own Jessica Jones reintroduced Alison Greene as an actual villain because of the events of Civil War II, so that Ulysses' vision was right, in a way, and now we know there's actually a pretty damn good reason for Spider-Man and Captain America to fight one another, and it may be in the event series to follow.

So that's Captain America: Steve Rogers Vol. 1. I'm honestly not trying to be contrarian or obtuse here, but aside from maybe being creeped out by the Kraken speech at the end, I couldn't find anything within the text of the book  itself that scans as upsetting, controversial or potentially upsetting or controversial.

I'd appreciate hearing in the comments from anyone who felt otherwise, though.
          Marvel's Civil War II tie-ins: There sure are a lot of these things        
Michael Cho
Well, I've read and written probably far too many words on Civil War II, Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez, Justin Ponsor and company's big event series pitting Captain Marvel Carol Danvers and Iron Man Tony Stark into deadly conflict over whether or not to use a new character's fortune-telling superpower, should I also read and write about all the tie-ins...? Probably not! But I did anyway. Please note that this is not a complete list of all the tie-ins; there are a lot more than this, but these are the ones I found that I was interested in reading. I may come back for a follow-up if it should turn out that I missed some good ones. In the mean time...


Agents of SHIELD Vol. 2: Under New Management

112 pages; $15.99
Number of issues tied-to Civil War II:
5 out of 5
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: Yes
Side: Neutral-ish

This trade paperback collects the last four issues of the ten-issue Agents of SHIELD comic book series, itself the relaunched version of the 12-issue SHIELD series. The remit seems to have been to chronicle the adventures of the Marvel Universe versions of the characters from the TV show of the same name, but I guess there wasn't enough interest in that particular concept among Marvel comics readers/buyers to keep it going for long. Hell, this trade collects almost the entire second half of the series, and many of those characters play fairly small, supporting roles (One even spends the majority of this collection unconscious in a coma). The main focus is on Agent Coulson and how the events of Civil War II impact him and his career.

While the cover indicates these agents of SHIELD are pretty firmly on Team Carol--which would make sense, given that SHIELD Commander Maria Hill is--it's a bit of a fake-out. In the first issue, Hill does indeed sic them on Iron Man, who, we are told, has just kidnapped Ulysses from New Atillan. Contrary to the events of Civil War II and common sense, in this story Iron Man leaves Ulysses unattended for a while to set up a trap for Coulson and company, so he can make his pitch to Coulson about how this whole future profiling thing is, beyond being morally wrong, just plain dumb, and doesn't really work. Coulson agrees, so Hill fires him.

Having heard Iron Man's pitch, Coulson, who has now gone solo and gone rogue, wants to hear Captain Marvel's, but she's not returning his calls, so he sneaks into her office on a satellite, reads some files about a prediction that indicates Daredevil is going to get killed by The Wrecking Crew and, in the first of many instances of this very thing happening (in the books reviewed in this particular post, if not chronologically), Carol's attempts to prevent a vision from happening actually causes it to happen. The only thing that stopped the vision from coming true here was Coulson being present to save DD from impalement.

In the final two issues, writer Marc Guggenheim steps away from the events of Civil War II somewhat in order to wrap up the various plotlines in his ending series, but the events of those tie-in issues feed into the various resolutions. Having not read the first six issues of the series, I can't tell how well these four actually wrap it all up, or if the demands of the crossover derailed the overall plotting, but it sure seems like Guggenheim managed to incorporate Civil War II pretty well, although, for the most part, the characters who aren't Coulson have relatively little to do.

I was surprised to find this collection included the 30-page one-shot special Civil War II: The Accused #1. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why Marvel saw fit to stick it in here of all places (it's a pretty direct tie-in to Civil War II, and doesn't feature so much as a cameo from any of the characters in Agents of SHIELD). It took me a bit to figure out who the creators were, but that explained it (I guess): Guggenheim also wrote The Accused, so in that respect it kinda sorta belongs in a trade collecting other Guggenheim-written Civil War II tie-ins.

Essentially a Daredevil story, it opens with a splash page of Hawkeye Clint Barton surrendering after killing Bruce Banner in Civil War II #3 and proceeds to tell the story of the trial that followed. Guggenheim answers any and all practical questions one might have about the trial, which Brian Michael Bendis didn't even feint toward caring about, including whether Matt Murdock was an attorney for the prosecution or the defense (the former), why on Earth Murdock was involved at all and how such a high-profile murder trial got to trial pretty much overnight (I'm still not clear on why it was being prosecuted in New York City, but whatever).

As a Daredevil story, and one with more lawyering than Daredevil-ing, it's a fine one, and Guggenheim manages to expand on the events of the Civil War II issue without really repeating anything from them, given the strange way in which Bendis formatted his script for that issue, which included a bunch of jumps back and forth between the confrontation between the superheroes and Banner and Carol, Tony, Clint and Matt's words in court. Adding a wrinkle to the proceedings is a government conspiracy to ensure that Clint is found guilty, so that the feds can reinstate the Superhero Registration Act (the thing that lead to the warring in the original Civil War series), but Murdock manages to put the kibosh on that.

I can't make sense of the credits enough to be sure if The Accused was drawn by Ramon Bachs and Garry Brown, or just Brown, but I really liked the art, regardless. There's a lot of ink on the pages, and most of the mask-less scenes look appropriately dirty, gritty and even somewhat ugly, while when Murdock does put on a mask and becomes Daredevil, everything looks smoother and more streamlined.

All-New, All-Different Avengers Vol. 3: Civil War II
By Mark Waid, Adam Kubert and others
112 pages; $15.99
Number of issues tied-to Civil War II:
3 out of 4
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: No
Side: Neutral (although most of the line-up ultimately join Team Tony for the fight scene in the Civil War II, while the others just sit the fight out)

Despite the relatively large role that members of this Avengers team play in the main series--this is Tony Stark's Avengers team, after all, and it includes Spider-Man Miles Morales--the three regular issues of All-New, All-Different Avengers collected herein stick to the fringes of the conflict, amounting to a series of three solo stories that all at least touch on the conflict.

In the first, The Vision plays Go with Ulysses, while asking him about the Baby Hitler dilemma, and he then goes off to kill Baby Kang The Conqueror (Interestingly, at least to me, this issues shows that Captain Marvel had The Black Panther and Spider-Man Peter Parker build a special chamber they stuff Ulysses in for the purposes of getting him to spit out prophecies faster. This seems in contrast with the main series, and this is the first I've seen of Parker playing an active role in the events. After the Celestial Destructor wrap party, he all but disappeared from Civil War II, only appearing at home watching the big fight on TV.)

The second, starring The Wasps and Jarvis, is even more limited in its connectivity. The trio watch vague news coverage of a battle between Captain Marvel and Iron Man, and the trial of Clint Barton for murdering Bruce Banner, and Wasp II freaks out a little at her disillusionment of the very thought of superheroes fighting other superheroes (Honey, this is the Marvel Universe, not the DC Universe; they've been doing this since Day One). She tries to fitfully science a solution to the problem before Wasp I and Jarvis calm her down and assure her this isn't a science problem so much as a human problem.

Finally, in the third, Thor visits Heimdall on the rainbow bridge, since Heimdall can see the future as well. He tells her a story about a time during the earliest days of The Avengers when the Odinson sought him out, and asked him whether or not they should intervene in a war between Doctor Doom's Latveria and a neighboring country, based on his visions of the future. They decided to do so, and it didn't go all that well for them. Mark Waid and Adam Kubert do a kinda neat trick in this story, with the framing sequence told in normal fashion, but the entirety of the flashback being formatted sideways, so that a reader would need to turn the book and read it vertically rather than horizontally.

That accounts for the first 60 pages of the 112-page book. The rest? That would be the All-New, All-Different Avengers Annual #1, the one devoted to guest-creators illustrating Ms. Marvel's fan-fiction (and I don't know, maybe the table of contents and some pages of variant covers?). That's a fun issue, which I covered elsewhere previously.


All-New Wolverine Vol. 2: Civil War II*
By Tom Taylor, Marcio Takara, Ig Guara and others
144 pages; $19.99
Number of issues tied-to Civil War II:
Three out of six
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: Yes
Side: Team Leave Us Out of It (after fighting against the forces of Team Carol)

The first issue herein is a rather unlikely team-up with Squirrel Girl, who shows up on the All-New Wolverine's doorstep in the middle of the night, holding an actual wolverine. His name is Jonathan, and Squirrel Girl thought he would be needed because she mistakenly thought that Wolverine could communicate with wolverines the way she communicates with squirrels. It was an honest mistake, and one that gives Laura and her little clone sister Gabby a pet wolverine.

Why is Squirrel Girl there at all? Well, it seems that Laura has "wronged the squirrel world," and S.G. wants her to make amends, so the two go off on an adventure to rescue a squirrel together. Though there's obviously a lot of silliness to it, writer Tom Taylor uses this issue to resolve the issue of whether Laura and Gabby are going to remain together or not, which ultimately allows him to demonstrate a way in which the all-new Wolverine is superior to the previous model...or at least trying to behave in the way she wished he had when he was still alive.

That's followed by two issues of Laura and Gabby going up against one of the greatest antagonists in the Marvel Universe: Mr. Fin Fang Foom. It seems things go wrong during the sale of a very mysterious, very deadly weapon of mass destruction, which turns out to be what Gabby repeatedly, alliteratively refers to as "Fin Fang Pheromone," a liquid capable of drawing FFF to a target.

Laura is recruited by SHIELD (and Gabby tags along) because the first Wolverine they sent in ended up in the belly of the beast. So Laura goes inside the giant dragon to rescue the older, futuristic, alternate dimensional version of the man she was cloned from, Logan from Old Man Logan.

Artist Marcio Takara has a really great panel set inside Fin Fang Foom, in which Laura, up to her knees in his stomach acid, strikes the same, somewhat iconic pose that the original Wolverine struck in that old issue of Uncanny X-Men, where he emerges from the sewer water and looks up, talking out loud to the not-present Hellfire Club about how they've taken their best shot and now he's gonna take his.

Captain Marvel Carol Danvers and Iron Man Tony Stark, both playing remarkably nice for two pals about to engage in a civil war in a month or so's time after the events of this story arc, arrive to help out, but ultimately the only way to save SHIELD's helicarrier and New York from the Fin Fang Pheromone-crazed Fin Fang Foom involves off-panel nudity and a jetpack. (Speaking of nudity, I notice Fin Fang Foom is going commando throughout this entire adventure. It may be more realistic for a giant, humanoid dragon monster to not wear giant tiny purple shorts, but it still looks off to me.)

Takara draws all three of these issues. That's followed by the Civil War II tie-in arc, drawn by pencil artist Ig Guara and three inkers. Old Man Logan has now joined the cast, having been dragged back to Laura and Gabby's apartment to recover from having his lower half skeletonized by his time being semi-digested in Fin Fang Foom's stomach acid (Miraculously, not only does his flesh grow back, but apparently his healing factor also regrew his jeans, boots and belt!).

The future-predicting Inhuman Ulysses has a vision in his office or cell or dark room at the Triskelion. Here's how he words it:
Wolverine. And an old man. A young girl. Flying through the air. And...I saw an angel? And screaming. And blood. A whole lot of blood.
Yeesh. Those little cryptic snippets are the basis upon which Captain Marvel and the other heroes siding with her take violent action, often against their peers? Seems a like playing the stock market or formulating national foreign policy based on Nostradamus or a few random verses of the Book of Revelation.

It's apparently enough for Maria Hill to mobilize a Captain America Steve Rogers-lead strike force to storm Laura's apartment and ask to detain The Notorious OML, on the belief that he's going to kill Gabby. Complicating matters further is the fact that he does kill Gabby in his own timeline, although as has been repeatedly established in his own book and the the X-books, his future is an alternate one, and things happen/happened/will happen quite differently in that world than they do/have/will in this one.

So the logistics of this story are really kind of a mess, with Captain America and SHIELD and OML all operating on visions and/or memories of the future, and fighting each other. Laura and Gabby are therefore caught in the middle of what has turned out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy (It turns out that if you expect Logan might commit a violent act upon those around him, sending a SHIELD SWAT team to fill him full of drug-tipped darts and a Captain America to smack him around and speechify might actually provoke him into violence, rather than deescalate the situation. Surely Team Carol will learn their lesson, and they won't make this exact same mistake over and over and over again!).

The arc ends with Laura telling Cap and SHIELD off, by essentially calling the entire premise of Civil War II idiotic, and forcefully saying she and Gabby would prefer to be left out of the rest of the crossover, thank you very much. Based on the logic of SHIELD here, it's hard to disagree; as with the original Civil War, one side is clearly being set-up as the wrong side, and there seems to be even fewer pains taken to articulate an argument for the Captain Marvel-lead side for acting in anyway that could conceivably be seen as "right," no matter how much one squints or tilts one's head (Interestingly, the original Civil War made Iron Man look like an evil and/or ignorant villain just prior to his big screen debut in his first film, while Civil War II is doing the same to Captain Marvel just prior to her big screen debut in her first film).

Which isn't to say there aren't moments in the arc. Burglars breaking into Laura's apartment, only to find Gabby, two Wolverines and an actual wolverine waiting for them was kind of funny, and Gabby calling Old Man Logan "her interdimensional dystopian future grandpa" was kind of cute. Taylor and his artistic collaborators continue to find the perfect balance between silly normal girl and usually hidden killer with Gabby, who is a fun character...except when that darkness slips out for a panel or two.

Side: Team Tony

Nick Spencer is a rather popular comic book writer to complain about these days, as a lot of folks seem to have very, very strong feelings about the current direction of the Captain America franchise, but often lost in those conversations is the fact that Nick Spencer is a very, very good comic book writer, and his Captain America comics, at least the Sam Wilson ones that I have read to date, have all been excellent ones.

The very thing that I've seen some readers complain about online, that Spencer's comics contain politics, is one of the things I like about them (and arguing that a comic book character who was created to argue a particular political position--that is, United States involvement in World War II--shouldn't be political is kind of idiotic). After all, it's not like Spencer is writing diatribes, or twisting the characters to suit transparent ideological positions of his that can't be sustained by the characters themselves. Or, worse, that his comics are boring. They're not. They're highly entertaining, they're incredibly engaging and, yes, they do deal with politics.

Superhero shared universes as old and as well-stocked as the Marvel Universe are, in fact, ideally suited to political comics. I mean, it's awfully helpful that if you're writing a pop culture narrative and you need a character to represent, say, black rage, there is already a pre-existing black character whose actual name is quite literally Rage. Short of political cartooning, wherein the artist might scrawl the word "Rage" across a character's chest in the tableau, you can't really beat that.

Like several other of the series mentioned in this particular post, Civil War II seemed to come up on Captain America: Sam Wilson awfully fast, as the book was still dealing with the fall-out of its previous storyline, a smaller-scale inter-book crossover, in the issue just before the Civil War II tying-in takes place. The first issue collected herein deals with Standoff fallout.

Two issues deal rather directly with Civil War II. The majority of #10 revolves around James Rhodes' funeral, with a kind of neat scene where Sam meets with many of Marvel's most prominent black superheroes: Sam's current girlfriend Misty Knight, Black Panther, Luke Cage, Storm, Doctor Voodoo, Spectrum and Nick Fury (Blade is busy but sends his regards, Nick Fury Jr. isn't sure if he should be there or not, considering how new he is at it). That's followed by Sam's eulogy, which touches on a fairly meta idea about the importance of a black man stepping into Iron Man's legacy (it was a relatively long time ago, in the comics, but Rhodes was Iron Man before he was War Machine), and he even discusses why Rhodes kept it secret at first.

It's a pretty good issue, all around, although because I call Mike Deodato out for it later, I will point out here that artist Angel Unzueta and colorist Cris Peter do a poor job on the crowd scenes at the church, rendering a weird, inorganic-looking mass of beige figures crowding the streets outside of the church and, worse, lining up a crowd of what look like golems or gingerbread mannequins in folding chairs behind the fully colored superheroes in one scene.

The following issue, the one in which Daniel Acuna takes over as artist (and sticks around for the rest of the collection), has both Iron Man and Captain Marvel making their respective pitches to Sam during different team-ups. Spencer has Sam see what Ulysses is doing for himself fairly quickly into the conversations, and he boils it down to a single thing a lot quicker than Bendis manages: It's profiling. He does allow Carol and Tony to both make convincing enough sounding arguments, though, and even allows Carol to say what sounds a bit like a right wing talking point regarding political correctness getting in the way of getting things done these days, but she's also allowed to be self-aware of it while making it: "So if I've gotta be the bad guy here, the one that takes the necessary but scorened action, fine--"

Sam's response?
I admire your spine, Carol. I really do. Even when I think your'e marching in the wrong direction--and I definitely think that's the case here.

But hey, if it's any comfort-- --I do hate being on his side.
And, to Tony, Sam flies away with an "Even when you're right, you're an $@#!"

The rest of the collection involves a private, over-zealous police force that seems to be a little too aggressive in its profiling of minorities, The Americops, and Rage and Sam's doomed attempt to try to find a middle-ground between the aggressive, profiling, militant police tactics and Rage's aggressive, vigilante violence. As is usually the case for poor Sam, it doesn't really work out well for him, and he ends up in a fight, and looking bad in the court of public opinion. His solution to that particular problem, which involves an appearance by Night Nurse, is to institute a sort of bird-powered superhero analogy to body cameras.

Also, USAgent appears to fight Sam and try to take back the shield, and after their fight scenes, which interrupt the other fight scenes, we see that something sinister and Secret Empire-y is apparently going on, but that's something for the next line-wide crossover.

Do the events demonstrate that Tony is right and Carol is wrong?: No (In fact, it does a lot of work to not make Carol look like a boorish lunatic)
Side: Team Carol (obviously)

If the choice between Captain Marvel Carol Danvers and Iron Man Tony Stark were to be made based solely on the quality of the collection of their series tied to Civil War II, then it's no contest: Team Carol all the way. I was actually pretty surprised by the quality of this book, which benefits from some great art by the like of Kris Anka and others, and by the extent to which it ties into the event series. While the majority of these issues take place in and around Carol's Alpha Flight base and her missions with Alpha Flight, during which she never encounters Tony or the majority of the superhuman community, it spans the story arc of the event series, from her spending time with the soon-to-be-late James Rhodes to her apparent post-Obama meeting in Civil War II #8.

It also manages to tell something of a distinct story of its own, complete with its own conflict and villain that runs parallel to the series in the sub-title, and that is based in the pre-existent elements of the book.

Part of the reason I was so surprised by the quality of this trade was my complete lack of interest in this particular Captain Marvel as a character (which is maybe Brian Michael Bendis' fault? I think he wrote the vast majority of Carol Danvers appearances I have read, mostly during the time she was still going by "Ms. Marvel") and her somewhat awkward current status quo, which seems to have appropriated elements of Canadian X-Men Alpha Flight and SWORD (introduced in Joss Whedon's short Astonishing X-Men run). As this collection is opening, she's repairing Alpha Flight Station, where Alpha Flight's Puck, Sasquatch and Aurora, SWORD's Abigail Brand and a bunch of no-name characters in matching Alpha Flight uniforms work with her as the first line of defense against hostile alien invaders.

She answers to what looks like a the ways and means committee of the Galactic Republic's senate from the Star Wars prequels, with holograms of various leaders from Earth and space appearing with their official-looking podiums in a big, black room to occasionally berate her. These include some dashing, handsome Canadian guy, long-time Marvel Universe bureaucrat Henry Gyrich and The Black Panther, who is also on Carol's superhero team, The Ultimates.

Again, that set-up isn't the least big appealing, but I'll be damned if the two people named Gage who write this book don't make it work, and do a damn fine job of showing Carol's reactions to the big events of Civil War II here in a way that seem organic to her worldview. They even do a pretty great job of showing Black Panther's evolving understanding of Ulysses and his visions, with T'Challa expressing his concerns to her fairly early, and Carol doing a great deal of work to address those concerns going forward, because she shares them (In the main series, of course, T'Challa pretty much just turns on a dime from Team Carol to Team Tony, and Carol is generally portrayed as completely uncaring of any potential downsides to policing the future based on the predictions of a new super-person).
One of Anka's consistently great covers
Despite the Anka's consistently great covers, which often depict Iron Man and other events from Civil War II, these issues stick mainly to their supporting cast. Various characters from Team Carol, particularly among The Ultimates and early allies that would later side with Tony like Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man Miles Morales, appear in very small roles, akin to cameos, basically. She has a long-ish talk with Hawkeye Clint Barton after having arrested him for killing Bruce Banner, and there's a scene where Magneto floats by to posture, but we don't see her ever come to blows with Iron Man here, or try to arrest Miles or any of that jazz.

Do the events demonstrate that Tony is right and Carol is wrong?: Sorta
Side: Team Carol

What side Spider-Man Peter Parker is on is actually kind of important, as he's one of the relatively few moral characters of the Marvel Universe, whose allegiances and alliances telegraph to readers who is right and who is wrong. That's why he played such an important role in the original Civil War; his switching from Iron Man's side to Captain America's being something of a turning point to signal that Tony Stark and company had finally crossed a line.

He was actually largely absent from the main Civil War II series, however. He gets a good zinger at Tony's expense in the first issue, and then seemingly sits the rest of the "war" out, watching the battle unfold on TV rather than participating (Nevertheless, Marvel put him on the cover of both the first issue and, weirdly, on the cover of Civil War II #4). So it's up to Gage to explain whose side Spidey is on and why, and he did so not in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, which apparently sold well enough that it didn't have to tie-in to the event, but in a stand-alone miniseries.

The series is set mainly in the earliest parts of the Civil War II timeline, apparently just after Ulysses moved in with The Inhumans. Spidey asks his best friend Johnny Storm, who lives with The Inhumans while Reed and Sue are enjoying their no doubt temporary retirement, if he can spend some time with Ulysses to get an idea of how his powers work. While showing Ulysses around Parker Industries' Manhattan HQ--Man, I haven't read ASM in so long, I didn't quite realize how hard they were pushing this Spider-Man-as-old school-Iron Man thing, complete with Spidey posing as Peter's employee--Ulysses has a vision, of Spider-Man fighting Clayton Cole, a former sound-based villain named Clash who is now a researcher at the company.

This naturally leads Spider-Man to start looking at Cole for warning signs, which just as naturally pushes him closer to climbing back into his old Clash suit to fight Spider-Man ("Oh, man," Spidey says to himself, "I did not just self-fulfilling-prophecy myself"). Gage does a pretty great job of writing Cole as a sympathetic character, spending the better part of an issue showing how he just can't get past his criminal past, which leads to the dissolution of a promising relationship, plus constant harping from his rather terrible-seeming parents and pressures from old associates from his life of crime. In fact, Gage probably does too good a job of making Cole sympathetic, as there were several scenes where I felt tempted to yell at the trade in my hands, and tell Spidey to back off. (Ultimately, Spider-Man makes the point that only Clash is responsible for Clash's actions...but readers see more than Spidey does and, to be honest, it's Peter Parker's decision to maintain a secret identity and to do it really, really poorly for someone who's had 10-20 years of practice, that pushes Cole away.)

As for the Civil War-ishness, Spidey spends some quality time with Ulysses, who oddly never changes clothes over the course of the days the story is set over (Actually, Ulysses is wearing a white t shirt in almost every single appearance in all of these books; I do hope he's got a closet full of white t shirts, and that he hasn't just refrained from changing clothes for, like, weeks), and gives both his and Peter Parker's diagnosis and allegiance to Captain Marvel. His experience in the preceding story would seem to have argued against doing so, but he seems convinced Ulysses can stop other peoples' Uncle Bens from getting killed, I guess, and thinks it's mostly a matter of Ulysses honing his powers and of Carol Danvers not abusing them.

Oddly, when Carol asks Spider-Man if she can count on him to fight when the fighting starts, he says she can, but when the fighting does start, this Spider-Man is taking a shower and watching Venom fight Miles Morales on the TV news.

In general, I'm not crazy about Travel Foreman's style, but I think it worked pretty well here, at least with the many talking scenes (the first action sequence, in which Spider-Man fights the, um, Vulturions, is kind of messy and hard to follow). And there are an awful lot of talking scenes. This is actually an all-around rather dramatic Spider-Man story. I kinda dig Clash's costume, too, which has a Spider-Mannishness to it, complete with the sort of "logo" that a kid might draw in his notebook at school.

After the conclusion of the mini-series, the book reprints 2014's Amazing Spider-Man #7 and #8 (from the previous volume of Amazing Spider-Man, not the current one; that was a whole reboot/re-numbering ago). A two-part Ms. Marvel crossover from around the time of the "Spider-Verse" event, I couldn't figure out why it was included here aside from the fact that it had Spider-Man in it and was scripted by Gage from a Dan Slott plot, until I got to the very end: That's when Spider-Man sees Clayton "Clash" Cole in action on the side of good, and Peter Parker gives him a job at Parker Industries.

The villain of those issues also shows up as an antagonist in the Captain Marvel collection discussed above, which was co-written by Gage.

Do the events demonstrate that Tony is right and Carol is wrong?: No
Side: Mostly Team Carol

In the pages of Civil War II, both sides of the conflict claim one of the two main X-Men teams as allies. Team Carol gets the team from Extraordinary X-Men (minus Old Man Logan and Nightcrawler, both of whom side with Iron Man), while Team Tony gets the team from All-New X-Men. What exactly drove each of these two teams of mutant superheroes to the particular faction they threw in with? Why did Logan abandon his team and take up claws against them? Why did teenage Iceman from the past side with Tony, while grown-up Iceman from the present side with Carol? These are some of the questions I wondered after, and expected to find answered in this four-issue miniseries devoted to the X-Men's role in the so-called civil war.

They aren't.

In fact, the All-New X-Men characters don't appear in this series at all, which instead focuses on the Extraordinary team's differences with the Uncanny X-Men, lead by Magneto (remember, this was an X-Men franchise relaunch ago, so the various team line-ups and titles have been scrambled yet again). At the time, they were the tertiary X-Men team, their relative lack of importance in the Marvel Universe apparent from the fact that none of them even appear in the pages of Civil War II proper.

While the series does indeed feature X-Men in conflict with one another, it is really more about the mutants' ongoing conflict with the Inhumans, which would see resolution in one of Marvel's smaller, franchise-specific events: Inhumans Vs. X-Men.

Writer Cullen Bunn opens with a sort of "Masque of the Red Death" riff, in which rich mutants seal themselves in a fancy air-tight party tower as the wandering Terrigen Mist cloud is about to wash over Dubai. Magneto's X-Men team--Psylocke, Sabertooth and M--force their way in and force them to take in all of the city's mutants, but an attack by a new(-ish?) form of Sentinels exposes them all to danger, until Storm's X-Men show up to save the day (These are Grown-up Iceman, Old Man Logan, Teenage Jean Grey, Magik and Nightcrawler). How did they know to show up when they did? Ulysses.

Magneto isn't happy about the fact that the Inhumans have a powerful weapon like Ulysses in their arsenal, since Marvel has set up this weird existential conflict between the Inhumans and the X-Men centering around the aforementioned cloud that doesn't make a lick of sense if you stop to think about it, which one is forced to do when reading about it, which is, like, all the time in X-Men comics, and certainly here.

Storm is worried Magneto is going to do something stupid, like kidnap or assassinate Ulysses, and thu spark a war with the Inhumans prior to the release of Inhumans Vs. X-Men #1, and there's your conflict: Uncanny X-Men vs. Extraordinary X-Men over whether it's cool that Ulysses is foretelling the future, framed through the perspective of mutant/Inhuman race relations and the profiling of Magneto based on his past as a supervillain (Bunn uses the word "profiling" a lot, and seems to have gotten the memo that it was the subject of Civil War II; it's played with in several ways, not just in profiling the future, but also in profiling characters based on their past actions or, in Nightcrawler's view, the way God and the universe operate).

The miniseries is mainly a series of rapidly escalating skirmishes between the two teams, ending with Magneto facing Ulysess, the two factions of mutants on his heels, only to be shown a vision that if he proceeds, the mutants will end up killing one another. There are a couple of surprises, like Nightcrawler abandoning Storm to side with Magneto (which maybe kinda sorta explains why he's on Team Tony, although Storm takes him back before this story is over), Psylocke abandoning Magneto to side with Storm and Rachel Grey being recruited to fill-in for her since I guess every X-Men team needs a psychic...?

I liked the Fantomex vs. Gambit fight and the pair's later encounters, as I kinda like both of those long-coated, sneaky mutants, and I don't think I've seen them sharing scenes before.

Bunn introduces the characters by labeling them upon first appearance (in each issue), which is no doubt handy, given how many damn characters there are and how the bi-annual relaunches are making it harder than ever to be able to keep up with Marvel's merry mutants. It really drew attention to the fact that they keep calling the Logan from the pages of Old Man Logan "Old Man Logan" instead of just "Logan." I guess he doesn't want to be called "Wolverine" anymore, which is fine, whatever, but why is his, like, official superhero name Old Man Logan? They don't call Steve Rogers "Old Man Steve"...

Broccardo's artwork is fine, but terribly unremarkable. Which is still far better than bad.

Overall, the series is kind of a letdown, but then that's mainly because it doesn't do what a reader of Civil War II might want an X-Men tie-in comic to actually do. Of course, since Bunn was crafting his story somewhat independently of Brian Michael Bendis, and at the same time Bendis was working on the main series, he probably only knew the outlines of Civil War II, and not which mutants would actually show up in it...that, or he wanted to involve Magneto's team while connecting this tie-in to the future of the franchise, and this was the way to do it.

The 80-page story is followed up by a reprint of a "Black Bolt and The Inhumans" feature from 1971's Amazing Adventures #9, by Gerry Conway, Mike Sekowsky and Bill Everett. Its relevance? Well, it has Magneto in it, I guess...? Visually, it's a stark reminder of how damn weird the Inhumans used to be in their original, Jack Kirby designs, and how the flatter, more garishly-colored comics of that era accentuated their somewhat monstrous and, well, inhuman qualities. It also reminded me that Gorgon existed; I haven't seen him in any of the many modern Inhuman appearances. I assume he died at some point, but I don't really care enough to look it up.


Invincible Iron Man Vol. 3: Civil War II
By Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Deodato, Mark Bagley and others
144 pages; $24.99
Number of issues tied-to Civil War II:
3 out of 6
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: Yes
Side: Team Tony (obviously)

Well this took some balls. This 144-page, $24.99 hardcover collection includes just three issues of the title comic book, the back half of the book filled with fairly random filler in the form of 2008's Mighty Avengers #9-11, issues that are only connected to the first half of the book by the fact that they are comics scripted by Bendis that also feature Iron Man, Doctor Doom and Carol Danvers. This then is an instance when waiting to buy a trade of an over-priced $3.99 comic is actually more expensive, as it only would have cost you $11.97 to buy the serially-published issues of Invincible Iron Man collected herein.

Of course, those issues--Invincible Iron Man #12-#14--were the only issues left in the series before it was relaunched with the same writer but a new number one, and I suppose it must have made sense in someone's head to collect the last issues of Invincible Iron Man (volume two) and the first issues of Invincible Iron Man (volume three) in different collections, but it sure looks like a terrible idea in retrospect. Marvel really should have collected these issues with the preceding collection, War Machines, or waited until they had two or three issues of the relaunched Invincible Iron Man to fill this out.

Because really, I don't know how a reader could plunk down $25 for this thing and not feel ripped off.

As for the relevant issues, the first opens with Tony Stark sitting on the ruins of Stark Tower, eating a sandwich. Apparently, someone knocked the tower down at some point, but I'll be damned if I can figure out where. Double-checking Civil War II, in the second issue of the miniseries The Inhumans arrive there with the intention of toppling it after Iron Man abducted Ulysses from New Attillan, but Carol, some superheroes and SHIELD show up to stop them from doing so, but in #5, the issue containing the civil battle, Iron Man tells Karnak, "I'm glad to see you...I have the bill for the building you tore down." The rest of that issue and the next then flash back to Tony trying to explain the fact that he faked his own death in War Machines to the relevant people, his learning of James Rhodes' death, a flashback to a time when Rhodes was still alive and then missing the funeral, which Deodato draws in extreme longshot, using some kind of weird computer effect to fill out the crowd.

The final issue has Tony, an alcoholic, deciding he needs a meeting, so he puts on his disguise of a generic, boxy baseball cap, a jacket and sunglasses and goes to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. By coincidence, you know who else shows up? Carol Danvers, also in a generic, boxy baseball cap, a jacket and sunglasses! I...didn't even know that Carol Danvers was an alcoholic, nor that Tony was her sponsor. This leads to an eight-page conversation between the pair outside of the church the meeting was occurring in, where Bendis gives them one last opportunity to talk things out like grown-up human beings before he has Carol pretty much murder him in the climax of Civil War II (Oh, um, spoiler alert? Don't worry; he's not dead, just in some weird coma-like state he apparently planned for so Riri Williams can be Iron Man for a while).

It might be something of a poignant end, were it not for how much of those three issues if focused on wrapping up Bendis' apparently aborted plans for this particular volume of his Iron Man run/s and the fact that someone--he, himself?--decided to launch Civil War II before his Iron Man storyline had really run its course.

Well, that and the fact that it is immediately followed by an nine-year-old story arc with next to no relevance, other than the vague reasons I had previously mentioned (and, perhaps, it came from a status quo following the original Civil War, the one in which Tony was the bad guy. He is, after all, leading the/a Mighty Avengers team against the/a New Avengers team, something Luke Cage flashes back to as an example of how sick of fighting friends he is in the pages of Power Man and Iron Fist, discussed below).


New Avengers Vol. 3: Civil War II
By Al Ewing, Paco Medina, Jan Vlasco, Carlo Barberi and others
160 pages; $19.99
Number of issues tied to Civil War II:
I'll say 6 of 6...but it's a pretty loose connection, with no bearing on the Civil War II sries
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: Not really
Side: Neutral-ish

It's kind of odd that this collection is sub-titled "Civil War II," given that the actual story arc filling its pages is given the more accurate (if perhaps less marketable seeming) title of "AIM Vs. SHIELD." And writer Al Ewing does seem far more interested in continuing his own storyline, which followed Roberto "Sunspot" Da Costa from the end of Jonathan Hickman's run on Avengers/New Avengers, wherein Da Costa bought AIM and transformed it into Avengers Idea Mechanics, an mostly autonomous nation state fusing good guy superheroics with bad guy mad science to make the world a better place.

This volume serves as the climax to his 18-issue, three collections-longn run, in which Da Costa's AIM fights against both Ultimate Reed Richards' WHISPER and his New Revengers and SHIELD (particularly a faction lead by an a-hole Agent John Garrett). It is actually kinda difficult to review-review this volume, given that one of the great pleasures of it is how much work Ewing put into the plotting, so there are plenty of surprises and reversals in it, the spoiling of which would actually spoil them.

Luckily, I can just stick to the Civil War II-ish aspects for the purposes of these few paragraphs.

In the first of the issues contained herein, the "public" New Avengers, the ones who didn't turn on SHIELD and the U.S. government in the previous collection (and the Standoff tie-in), are shown participating in the battle against the Celestial Destructor: Hawkeye Clint Barton, Hulkling, Squirrel Girl and, of course, Wiccan, whose role in the battle was also depicted in Civil War II proper.

By the second issue, Clint is in jail over shooting Bruce Banner to death, and there's a Ulysses vision of Songbird speaking at Roberto's funeral factored in. But mostly, it's a big-ass fight between the New Avengers' huge, diverse cast of mostly weird heroes, Evil Richards' new team of similarly weird and even more obscure villains and lots and lots of Dum Dum Dugan Life Model Decoys lead by Garrett.

It reads surprisingly well on its own, discrete from either Civil War II or the previous two trades, and though Ewing does get to put some punctuation on his run, it will continue, albeit into a new title, making following it in the future...difficult, to say the least (U.S.Avengers, which may not be long for this world; it's solicited through at least its ninth issue, but according to the most recent sales estimates I've seen, it dipped below 20K almost immediately upon launch)


Power Man and Iron Fist Vol. 2: Civil War II
By David F. Walker, Flaviano, Sanford Greene, Scott Hepburn and others
Number of issues tied to Civil War II:
4 out of 5
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: Yes
Side: Team Leave Us Out of It (although a confusing flashback in Civil War II implies Luke and Danny were working with Carol prior to the trial of Clint Barton, while Luke joins Team Tony by Civil War II #4)

This arc is bad, but it's still fun, and maybe as good as a tie-in to such a dumb event series could be if it really did try to honestly engage with the event instead of simply side-stepping it as fast as possible. Walker writes these characters extremely well, and has a lot of fun with Luke's refusal to swear and in recovering the often very goofy characters from Cage's deep past, and other failed or half-forgotten street-level characters from Marvel's past, and reintroducing them, often portraying their past portrayals as youthful indiscretions, or perhaps trying to be something they weren't...or, in at least one case, trying to hang on to something they never were in the first place.

The artwork by Flavianao and Sanford Green is great, and I could look at those two guys' drawings of the two guys in the title all damn day; I particularly like, as I believe I mentioned when discussing the first volume, how huge this Luke Cage is drawn, in relation to Danny, Jessica, Danielle and the whole world around him. He's a literally bigger-than-life character.

Walker's way of dealing with the Civil War II plot is interesting, and I find myself wondering whether the plot for this arc, which isn't quite concluded in this volume, is one he would have written anyway, and he was just forced to fold Carol Danvers in, or if his non-Civil War II plot was an intentional echo of Civil War II, inspired by its plot.

After Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Jessica Jones see news footage of the battle with Thanos that took place in Free Comic Book Day 2016 and ended with War Machine James Rhodes dead and She-Hulk in a coma, and the two heroes attempt to visit Shulkie at the Triskelion but are turned away. They are warmly greeted by Carol, however, who then asks if they can give her a minute of their time so she can explain what's going on.

Jump to the two of them walking to their car, reiterating that Civil War II is dumb and they hope they can avoid being in it (they can't!).

"What was all that 'predictive justice' stuff Carol was talking about?" Danny yells. "Sounded like a bunch of fiddle-faddle to me," Luke says, and they agree to sit this one out, as they are also sick of hero vs. hero fights. On a two-page spread, between two tiers of them talking about it, there's a nice big spread of the Luke Cage-lead Avengers (from the second volume of the Bendis-written New Avengers, I want to say) fighting the Carol Danvers and Iron Man-lead Avengers (from the pages of the Bendis-written Mighty Avengers). Cage, who sided with Captain America in the pages of the first Civil War, was basically in a kinda cold war with the government-sanctioned Avengers between the end of Civil War and the post-Secret Invasion "Heroic Age," I think.

Walker then returns to matters related to his book, as a bunch of reformed criminals and their family members attempt to hire the Heroes For Hire to find a bunch of ex-cons who have since gone straight but disappeared shortly after encountering a group of mysterious vigilantes. And then those vigilantes attack! Followed by the police!

This ends with Danny Rand in jail for assaulting some officers, where he tries to figure out the disappearances. Many of those who have disappeared are also in jail there, and they ended up there without officially being charged or getting trials. Outside prison, Luke calls in favors from many friends to try to figure out the one clue they have, a mysterious device that mixes facial recognition software with the ability to manipulate and falsify criminal records. This is what the vigilantes were doing to bust their victims.

So you can see how this thematically kinda sorta ties in to Civil War II, as innocent--or at least innocent-until-proven-guilty--people are being attacked, arrested and punished for crimes they didn't actually commit. Civil War II comes back to the fore when Ulysses--the prophesying Inhuman that Carol Danvers is using to predict possible future crimes to prevent before they happen--has a vision of Luke Cage leading a break-in at Ryker's to free the incarcerated Danny.

In fact, a confused and frustrated Cage calls Songbird and Centurius to join him as he looks at Ryker's, in the hopes that they can talk him out of doing something stupid and figure out this whole mess, and then "Sweet Christmas, Easter and Hanukkah," in swoop Danvers, Mockingbird, Puck, Spectrum, Storm, Deathlok and a whole bunch of SHIELD troops. They are there to stop Ulysses' vision from coming to pass by arresting Luke first and, just as in Agents of SHIELD and All-New Wolverine, Carol's intervention is exactly what causes the vision to come to pass (slow learner, I guess).

There's a lot of fighting between all parties. I particularly liked the fight-then-team-up sequences involving Mockingbird, who Walker writes close enough to Chelsea Cain that she sounds like the same character, and Songbird, because they have similar names. And I'm always calling Songbird Mockingbird by accident.

It ends with Cage making a couple of speeches in Carol's direction, and then Danny making another one, and she's eventually shamed into dropping it and they help round up the prisoners and clean up the jail. As for the A-plot, which becomes the B-plot, Luke's team is just about to crack where the doohickey being used to find and incarcerate people came from, when a very powerful person in a hoodie teleports to his safehouse and steals it from the hands of his allies.

The rest of the collection is devoted to Sweet Christmas Annual #1, in which Walker and artist Scott Hepburn creates a Christmas Even story involving Luke, Danny, Danielle, Spider-Woman Jessica Drew and her baby,The Son of Satan, The Krampus and Santa Claus. If you haen't read it yet, chances are it is every bit as awesome as you are imagining it to be right now, based simply on the guest-stars appearing in it.


Rocket Raccoon and Groot Vol. 2: Civil War II
By Nick Kocher, Michael Walsh, Bill Mantlo, Al Milgrom and others
112 pages; $15.99
Number of issues tied-to Civil War II:
3 out of 5
Do the events demonstrate that Carol is wrong and Tony is right?: No
Side: Team Carol

The Civil War II tie-in arc in this collection is book-ended by two comics. The second is a reprint of 1981's Incredible Hulk #271 by Bill Mantlo, Al Milgrom and company, included because it is the first appearance of Rocket Raccoon...and, one suspects, to act as filler. The first is Rocket Raccoon and Groot #7, a done-in-one story by the title's regular creative team of writer Nick Kocher, artist Michael Walsh and co-inker Josh Hixson. That's the issue the cover of the collection came from; that's not James Rhodes' or Bruce Banner's grave they are looking down on there.

I was really quite struck by how stand-alone that first issue was, and how purely comedic it was. Yes, it starred two Marvel characters of a rather high-degree of popularity at the moment, but it was otherwise pretty far removed from the Marvel Universe, lacking in the familiar settings (being in outer space and all) and guest-stars, villains and other Marvel Comics building blocks that generally show up in the publisher's other comedy-focused series, like Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Patsy Walker, AKA Hellcat and the the recently canceled Howard The Duck. The mode was, additionally, comic in a way that is unusual for Marvel. Unlike the above-mentioned series or, say, a Deadpool comic, it wasn't superhero comedy so much as just comedy.

For the three-issue Civil War II tie-in, the book takes on the more standard superhero comedy set in the Marvel Universe shape, opening with Rocket and Groot in a big meeting with the rest of Team Carol, in which Captain Marvel is doling out various assignments for her predictive justice enforcement (the scene is somewhat at odds with the events of Civil War II, where the pair appear with the rest of the Guardians as a sort of ace-in-the-hole during the one scene in which Team Carol and Team Tony actually come to blows, but given the nature of this book, that's more than forgivable).

Rocket volunteers himself and Groot for a minor assignment (a baby powder robbery in Georgia), and while Captain Marvel knows its for a sneaky, self-serving reason, she lets them go, because it's just Rocket Raccoon and Groot, after all. That sneaky, self-serving reason? Rocket is in pursuit of a bounty he missed a few years ago. Unfortunately for him/fortunately for us, Gwenpool is also in pursuit of the same bounty, and thus it's Rocket and Groot vs. Gwenpool.

This was my first exposure to Gwenpool, but as you may already be aware, her whole deal is that she breaks the fourth wall, like, constantly; she's a comic book character who knows she's a comic book character in a comic book. That means she's constantly talking directly to the readers, which of course is interpreted by all the other comics characters as her being even more completely insane than her namesake.

I don't know how this works in her own book or other appearances, but writer Nick Kocher has a lot of fun with her, and she's pretty perfect for a crossover "tie-in," like this, as she knows how those things work. Since she, Rocket and Groot and lower-tier characters, they are in greater danger of being killed off than anyone else, so the further they stay away from the conflict in New York, the better. When their little side quest leads to a plot from an alien villain to kill Carol, she insists Carol is going to be okay, as it's not like they are going to kill her off in this book instead of Civil War II, and, besides, Kocher wouldn't have the authority at Marvel to kill off Captain Marvel anyway, that would take a writer of Brian Michael Bendis' stature.

At which point in her expanation, Gwenpool sees Kitty Pryde walk by and, when she asks what she's doing there, Kitty confesses she actually has no idea. So maybe it is a Bendis book, after all?

Like the done-in-one that precedes it, it's a pretty fun little story, and Kocher gets some good zingers in. Michael Walsh's art is refreshingly un-Marvelous, too. This book very much resembles an "indie" book in its look, which certainly works to its advantage for sequences like the one in which a grenade hits Gwenpool, shredding her clothes, but leaving the "R-rated" parts covered. She uses this as evidence that she is, in fact, in a comic book, and Walsh's particular style makes it about as un-sexy as it can be, allowing for a joke that would normally be accompanied by cheesecake without any sort of exploitation (Whether or not that's a good thing will depend on the reader, of course, but it's an example of the style draining the book of the expected superhero aesthetic).

To call the book a Civil War II tie-in is a big, long, hard stretch, especially given that they used Civil War II as the sub-title, but it's an enjoyable book on its own

          Comment on Pick of the Week #596 – Mech Cadet Yu #1 by phillosmaster        
So I've caught up on Gerry Duggan's run on GotG. I had jumped ship on the previous run of GotG because I didn't really like post MCU voice and direction for the series. So I wasn't jumping at the opportunity to pick up the new run (Even though I've liked Duggan's previous work). Boy was I surprised. It's great. My main complaint with the previous book was it didn't really feel like it connected to the Marvel cosmic heritage while also not really having a voice or narrative that felt true for the characters to me. Gerry really righted the ship IMO. Not only do we get Thanos and the Collector (safe characters since they appeared in the movies), but the Grandmaster, a Nova Corp reboot (long over due), Phyla Vell (made me very happy), Adam Warlock and the Infinity Watch! ... Look like know the game they need to play. They need to keep making these books approachable to new audiences. Especially audiences who come in expecting to see something similar to the movies. That said it just felt nice to finally have a book that really felt like it took place in the Marvel cosmic setting. It was always my favorite part of the Marvel universe. I love the MCU, but I don't want to view Marvel comics only through an MCU lens and for Marvel Cosmic I do feel like we've been doing that ever since the first Marvel Now event. The new GotG feels like such a breath of fresh air to me. Yeah Starlord is still more Chris Pratt than legacy Peter Quill and the team dynamic is still pretty much what it is from the MCU (GotG were more of a successor to the Infinity Watch than a group of professional thieves), but somehow that is all more palatable to me when you establish a stronger connection to the legacy.
          My top 10 storylines in comics        

Ok so both Marvel & DC Comics are known for their creative writing and gripping events over the years, some have been good, some not so good. So in honor of this Summers big Avengers vs X-Men storyline, here's my top 10 story arcs/events over the years:

  • 10.  Punisher: Welcome Back, Frank

 

 Frank re-establishes himself in New York City by taking on the Gnucci crime syndicate. Detective Soap is assigned to "catch" the Punisher; it is purely a P.R. move as the cops do not really want to. Frank turns Soap to his side, getting him to pass information on local crime syndicates. Against his will, Frank gains three loyal friends in his neighbors, Joan the Mouse, Mr. Bumpo, and Spacker Dave. All end up helping him in his fight against the Gnuccis, partly out of self-defense as the criminals learn where Frank lives. Spacker suffers torture at the hands of the Gnuccis, unwilling to give up Frank's location.

In the end, the Gnuccis are destroyed, no longer a threat. Soap becomes police commissioner. Frank's friends find themselves wealthy with stolen Gnucci money and Frank himself has moved on. Joan and Spacker would play larger roles in Frank's life later, meanwhile Bumpo suffers a medical accident and must live in the hospital.

 

  • 9. Iron Man: Demon In A Bottle

 

This is one of my personal favourites. "Demon in a Bottle" was originally only the title of the final issue in the storyline. When the storyline was collected in trade paperback in 1984 and 1989, it was published under the title The Power of Iron Man. "Demon in a Bottle" later became the popular name for the storyline, and collected editions were then published under that title.

 

  • 8. The Death Of Captain America

In the aftermath of Civil War, Captain America is taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody where he is assassinated per the order of the Red Skull. Crossbones snipes at him while Sharon Carter, who has been brainwashed by Doctor Faustus posing as a S.H.I.E.L.D. psychiatrist, delivers the killing blow. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Tony Stark and Black Widow hunt Captain America's murderers. Falcon, Captain America's old partner, follows his own leads to find the killers. Meanwhile, Bucky Barnes decides to kill Tony Stark, blaming him for Captain America's death.

 

  • 7. Spider-Man: Maximum Carnage

 

 This is probably my favourite Spider-Man storyline of all time, simply because I'm such a Carnage fan. "Maximum Carnage" is a fourteen-part comic book crossover published in 1993. It featured both Spidey and Venom teaming up to face Venom's murderous offspring.

 

  • 6.  Green Lantern: Blackest Night 

 

 The Blackest Night storyline was the third part of Geoff Johns's trilogy in the Green Lantern universe. This storyline followed the events of Sinestro Corps War and the fallout of the War of Light.

 

  • 5.  Batman: A Death In The Family

 

 "A Death in the Family" was first published in the late 1980s, and also gave fans the ability to influence the story through voting with a 900 number, What followed would be one of the biggest moments in the Batman universe.

 

  • 4.  The Death Of Superman trilogy

 Known as the biggest story ever, in which Superman finally meets his match and battles to protect Metropolis from the monster known as Doomsday.

 

  • 3. Batman: Knightfall

 

 

How could this NOT be included? The trilogy that literally broke The Dark Knight. Bane frees all the inmates of Arkham Asylum forcing Batman to push past his limits to recapture them, leaving him exhausted. Finally, Bane confronts him at Wayne Manor and beats him mercilessly, leaving him physically and mentally beaten. Azrael rises to take his place and confront Bane.

 

  • 2. The  Infinity Gauntlet

 The Infinity Gauntlet #1 - Comic Book Cover

The Infinity Gauntlet is a six issue miniseries written by Jim Starlin and published in 1991.

Mistress Death is upset that the balance between life and death has recently not been in her favor. Her solution is to give her ardent follower, Thanos, a chance at rebirth setting him forth with a mission of killing half the life in the universe. Despite his powers, Thanos realizes his mission is near impossible. Remembering the Infinity Gems that were instrumental in his death, he peered into the Infinity Well to discover their secrets. He divines the true nature of the gems, and their current owners.

 

  • 1.  Civil War

And here it is my number 1 pick! The Civil War has many consequences including the separation of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four, the revelation of Spider-Man's secret identity to the world, the departure of Ben Grimm to France, the death of Goliath and finally the death of Captain America himself at the end of the War (or so we thought).

After Nitro sets off an explosion, killing the New Warriors and hundreds of innocents, the American Government, blaming the super-hero community for these deaths, enforces a Super-Human Registration Act that forces super-heroes to reveal their secret identities and work for the government, labeled as weapons of mass destruction. This doesn't sit well with some heroes and the Super-Hero community is divides into sides: Iron Man's Pro-Registration Act team enforced by SHIELD and its new director Maria Hill, and Captain America's Anti-Registration Act team called the Secret Avengers. This separation causes a super-human Civil War that pits the two teams against each other physically and morally.

 

So there you have it, a run down of my top 10 favourite stories in both the Marvel and DC universe. Agree? Disagree? Feel free to share your thoughts and some of your favourite story arcs in comics.

          Î˜Î¬Î½Î¿Ï‚ Πετρέλης: Το «τρυφερό» βίντεο με την κόρη του «ξετρέλανε» το instagram        

Μπαμπάς και κόρη σε «τρυφερές» στιγμές πριν τη βόλτα τους. Ο Θάνος Πετρέλης έχει αποκτήσει τρεις κόρες και μαζί με τη σύζυγό του έχει τέσσερις γυναίκες που λατρεύει στη ζωή του. Ο τραγουδιστής «ανέβασε» στο instagram ένα βίντεο με την μικρότερη κόρη του να τον αγκαλιάζει και να στέλνουν φιλάκια λίγο πριν βγουν βόλτα. Πάμε βόλτα. 😀😀😀 #efzen […]

          Crítica do Amer: Doutor Estranho        

Assim que Doutor Estranho começou, percebi algo de diferente.

Lembram do logotipo da Marvel? Aquele em que páginas de quadrinhos são viradas e aos poucos formam MARVEL, e depois Studios na tela, pra encher nossos corações de alegria e nossos sovacos de suor?

Pois então, agora temos diversas cenas de todos os filmes do estúdio, que nos são apresentados em rápida sucessão, até formarem MARVEL STUDIOS tudo junto bem lindão, para sobrecarregar nossas sinapses de endorfinas e nossos olhos lacrimejarem e se arregalarem até caírem das órbitas.

Pode não parecer uma grande mudança a primeira vista, mas para mim é como se simbolizasse a vontade do Marvel Studios de se apresentar como uma entidade diferente da editora. Ambos dividem personagens, mas nada além disso.

Considerando a catástrofe que anda a editora, e o fato de que mesmo as bolas fora do estúdio são divertidas (sim, até Homem de Ferro 2), acho muito justo.

E sim, isso significa que Doutor Estranho é outro acerto do Marvel Studios.

...

E agora vocês não precisam mais ler a crítica, pois já sabem minha opinião.

MARDIÇÃO!!!

Mas fiquem! O artigo de hoje tá cheio de Cumberbatch!
Vocês gostam de Cumberbatch, não?

Conheçam Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), neurocirurgião extraordinário! Um cara tão bom em sua profissão, que ele é capaz de remover pensamentos impuros de sua mente utilizando uma pinça e dois ovos cozidos. Claro, ele também é um babaca arrogante que você quer pisotear na garganta após cinco minutos de conversa... Mas acho que isso é algo que vem com o cavanhaque, quando você é herói da Marvel. Tony Stark também era assim.

Exceto que Strange não usava cavanhaque enquanto era cirurgião, ele deixa crescer durante seu treinamento.

... Hãããããã... Spoilers...

Ma bene, Strange é um cretino lanfranhudo, até que sofre um acidente de carro tenebroso, porque decidiu sair pilotando feito Ayrton Senna na chuva. A pancada do carro estraçalha suas mãos e o impede de continuar exercendo sua profissão.

Desesperado e implodido, Strange gasta tudo que tem em meses de tratamento que não resultam em nada. Sua antiga namorada Christine (Rachel MacAdams) tenta ajudá-lo como pode, mas a obsessão de Strange em curar suas mãos acaba por afastá-la.

Eventualmente, ele descobre um camarada que anos antes ficou paraplégico, mas voltou a andar misteriosamente. Strange vai até ele, e o sujeito diz que a cura que ele busca está Kamar-Taj, que fica no Himalaia. O doutor procura no Atlas e não encontra nada, mas após descobrir que esta é uma das muitas locações mundiais fictícias criadas por Stan Lee (Como Genosha, Madripoor e Guarulhos), ele dá uma vasculhada no Marvel Wiki e descobre para onde precisa ir.

Ao chegar lá, ele é saudado por Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), que o apresenta ao Ancião (Tilda Swinton).. Ou seria Anciã? Essas traduções de termos que originalmente não possuem gênero sempre me deixam mais confuso que texano num restaurante vegano. Logo, Strange inicia um duro treinamento nas artes místicas, que lhe permitirão curar suas mãos... Ou lhe darão a chance de realizar um bem muito maior do que seria capaz como médico.

Enquanto isso, Kaecillus (Mads Mikkelsen), antigo discípulo da Anciã que tornou-se um vilão do mal que odeia o bem, tenta trazer um horror ancestral à Terra. Somente nosso feiticeiro com cara de fuinha pode detê-lo!

Ah, parem de reclamar, Benedict Cumberbatch é feio que dói!

Pois bem, temos aqui uma história de origem, e ela segue a mesma fórmula de todos os filmes do Marvel Studios que não são uma continuação: Enredo simples e de fácil digestão, com um protagonista bem definido que vemos enfrentar suas próprias limitações, até se tornar o herói que sempre estava destinado a ser.

Não é “compleeeeeeexo” e “sombriiiiiiiiio” como Batman V. Superman, mas também não é uma bosta, e isso sempre uma vantagem!

VOU XINGAR BATMAN V. SUPERMAN ATÉ O FIM DA MINHA VIDA!!! QUEIMA NO INFERNO, ZACK SNYDER!!!

"Venha cá, jovem. Vamos falar dessa raiva que você
sente por um homem que nem conhece."

Sendo muito honesto, fiquei preocupado quando anunciaram Doutor Estranho, pois a história do personagem é muito parecida com a de Tony Stark: Um lanfranhudo milionário que é o melhor em sua área se lasca e torna-se um herói enquanto busca uma forma de consertar sua vida. Tive medo de que o filme acabasse sendo um mero repeteco de Homem de Ferro, só que com doses de David Copperfield ao invés de Steve Jobs.

Felizmente, não foi o que aconteceu. Apesar de possuir uma temática semelhante a de seu antecessor, Stephen Strange é seu próprio personagem, e isso se deve a impecável atuação de Benedict Cumberbatch, que fez de seu personagem um homem arrogante e frio, mas com enorme talento, e lampejos de bondade e nobreza que tornam-se mais evidentes a medida que ele progride em sua jornada.

Minha única reclamação é que o desenvolvimento de Strange ocorre de forma muito acelerada. Mal ele sofre o acidente e já está em Kamar-Taj, e mal ele chega na cidade e seu ceticismo já é abalado pelas habilidades da Anciã. Não é algo que prejudique o filme, mas me questiono por que não tiveram com Strange o mesmo cuidado que demonstraram com o outros heróis neste aspecto.

Em outras notícias, sempre tenho a impressão que Benedict Cumberbatch está sendo dublado por um cara de dois metros e meio de altura, porque eu nunca vi uma voz combinar tão pouco com seu dono. Ele devia falar igual ao Gilbert Gottfried, ou o Gallagher... E vou parar de citar comediantes americanos que ninguém conhece agora.

Chiwetel Ejiofor... E eu espero ter escrito esse nome certo... Também faz um ótimo trabalho como Karl Mordo, o primeiro amigo que Strange faz ao chegar em Kamar-Taj. Vocês sabem, o cara que entrega a senha do wi-fi para ele no trailer. Mordo é um personagem rígido, preso as regras que ditam o mundo da mágica, mas ele transmite grande dignidade e sabedoria. Algo que fará muita diferença no futuro quando...

OOOPS!!! QUASE SOLTEI SPOILER!!!

Mas quem rouba a cena é Tilda Swinton como o Ancião... Anciã... Daquele Kuririn em Level 999, pronto! Dizem que bons atores desaparecem em seus papéis e bem... Aqui é como se ela nunca tivesse sido algo além da feiticeira suprema responsável por proteger o mundo e treinar as próximas gerações de magos. A personagem está sempre envolta em um notável aura de gentileza, mas jamais duvidamos que ela pode partir os céus e a terra se julgar necessário.

O único que deixa um pouco a desejar é Mads Mikkelsen, não por fazer um trabalho ruim, mas porque seu personagem não possui motivações fortes e falha em se tornar marcante. Verdade seja dita, este é um problema compartilhado por vários vilões do Marvel Studios, como Darren Cross, Malekith e Ronan, que foram pouco desenvolvidos e serviram apenas para dar aos heróis alguém a quem socar.

Bem, reconheço que a Marvel sempre teve vilões mais fracos que a DC, salvo raras exceções. Mas eu vou ficar extremamente infeliz se Thanos receber o mesmo tratamento dos demais antagonistas do estúdio.

Está me ouvindo, Kevin Feige? Ou você acerta seu passo, ou serei forçado a tomar medidas drásticas, como escrever centenas de Tweets raivosos e cheios de palavrões, como bom gordo virgem de 62 anos que coleciona bonequinhos da Funko!

E já que mencionei o Twitter, um pensamento me ocorreu enquanto eu assistia o filme.

Muita gente reclamou que Tilda Swinton, uma atriz branca, foi escalada para viver o Ancião, um personagem originalmente asiático. Estas pessoas alegaram “whitewashing” e que Hollywood estava assim apagando a presença de outras etnias em seus filmes... Ou qualquer bobagem politicamente correta do tipo.

As mesmas pessoas ignoraram o fato de que Karl Mordo, um personagem romeno nos quadrinhos, recebeu um intérprete negro no filme.

Bom, é a internet internetando. Eu nem devia mais ficar surpreso.

"Apropriação cultural. Tu tá roubando o espaço que devia pertencer a uma fuinha."
"Vá pro diabo que te carregue!"

Doutor Estranho também adiciona um elemento até agora pouco explorado no MCU, que é a magia. Quase todos os personagens lidam com heróis que são fruto da ciência, mesmo em Thor, os asgardianos são tratados mais como alienígenas do que como os deuses mitológicos que Stan Lee copiou... SE INSPIROU, foi isso que eu quis dizer. Sim.

Pessoalmente, gosto muito disso. Um dos pontos fortes da Marvel sempre foi a perpétua mistura de gêneros que acompanhamos nos quadrinhos. Feiticeiros, cientistas espaciais e vigilantes urbanos sempre dividiram o mesmo ambiente e conviveram em perfeita harmonia.

Exceto naquelas graphic novels onde um herói tem de matar todos os outros, porque algum roteirista acordou se sentindo subversivo e a Marvel decidiu que era uma boa ideia deixar uma publicação na mão desse cara.

Além disso, a magia apresentada no filme consiste principalmente da manipulação do espaço e do tempo. Como os outros heróis irão reagir, quando se depararem com alguém que pode mudar a história se assim o desejar? O verão como um aliado, talvez um possível conselheiro? Ou ficarão perpetuamente alertas, apenas esperando o momento em que o feiticeiro supremo sairá do controle?

E quando veremos o Shuma-Gorath? Toda uma geração de moleques que desperdiçou o PIB da Suíça em fichas de fliperama precisa saber!!!

Se querem minha opinião, acho que ele vai aparecer em Doutor Estranho 3. E deveria ser interpretado pelo Robert De Niro. Al Pacino poderia fazer o Coração Negro, eles seriam uma dupla dinâmica da trevosidade e passariam muito menos vergonha do que quando trabalharam em As Duas Faces da Lei.

Meu Deus, vocês trabalharam em O Poderoso Chefão! Como a carreira de vocês chegou nesse nível?

"Até eu estou em filmes melhores. E olha que eu sou só um estereótipo!"

Pra encerrar, gostei muito da maneira que a magia foi representada neste filme.

Após tanto tempo assistindo Harry Potter, nos acostumamos a ideia de que mágica consiste apenas de voar em vassouras, encontrar Salas Precisas pra dar umazinha com a Luna entre as aulas, ou transformar David Thewlis em um lobisomem de computação gráfica que tornou-se ultrapassado menos de uma década após seu lançamento.

Aqui, a coisa é mais complexa. Magia envolve a manipulação do espaço e do tempo, além do conhecimento e contato com seres de infinitas dimensões. Feiticeiros aprendem que o mau uso de seus poderes pode trazer consequências terríveis para o resto da humanidade. É uma lufada de ar fresco ver um filme onde magia não é tratada como algo mundano.

E os efeitos visuais são extremamente criativos. Em duelo, os feiticeiros criam uma espécie de “Mundo Compacto” (e eu espero estar usando este termo de forma correta), que cria uma duplicata do ambiente ao seu redor, que pode então ser manipulado a vontade pelo mago, sem causar danos ao mundo real. É como A Origem, mas dez vezes maior e não o deixará entediado ao ponto de contrair câncer.

De fato, eu recomendo a vocês que assistam a este filme em 3D se puderem.

E vejam bem, eu ODEIO FILMES 3D! ODEIO COM TODO ÂMAGO DO MEU SER! Se o diabo aparecesse na minha frente e oferecesse erradicar os filmes 3D da face do planeta, em troca da alma do meu primogênito, eu mandaria ele a bosta e diria não. Então ensinaria meu pimpolho a odiar filmes 3D também, porque é isso que você faz quando é pai: Você passa a tradição.

Mas os efeitos visuais de Doutor Estranho parecem uma enorme viagem de ácido, e não consigo pensar em uma maneira melhor de otimizar esta experiência do que vendo-a em três dimensões. É como se os anos 1960 ejaculassem em seus olhos!

...

Ok, analogia horrível. Calma que eu posso fazer melhor.

É como se o Paul McCartney ejaculasse em seus olhos!

...

Como assim “que nojo”? Ele é um Beatle, pelo amor de Deus!!!

Visto aqui: O resultado de um infeliz encontro com Sir McCartney

Recomendo Doutor Estranho, sem sombra de dúvida. E fico muito feliz que o Feiticeiro Supremo agora é parte do MCU.

Uau, que viagem foram estes últimos dez anos. Quem diria que Homem de Ferro iniciaria todo um universo compartilhado, que ainda está em expansão e não dá sinais de fraqueza? E vocês não tem ideia de como eu fico feliz de viver em um tempo onde todos podem desfrutar dos heróis que eu tanto amo desde a infância.

E é um alívio saber que mesmo na Hollywood sem criatividade e obcecada por reboots que temos hoje, ainda existem aqueles que são capazes de entregar uma experiência mágica a seu público.

Literal e figurativamente no caso de hoje.

          Crítica do Amer: Capitão América - Guerra Civil        

Existem dois tipos de pessoas no mundo.

Primeiro, aquelas que já tem uma opinião formada sobre um filme (ou game, música, livro, lubrificante anal) e procuram críticas apenas para se sentirem validados em sua forma de pensar.

...

Bom, acho que não existe um segundo tipo. Especialmente nesta era de internet, onde absolutamente TUDO é a pior (ou melhor) coisa que já existiu. Muitas vezes meses antes de seu lançamento.

Então vamos ser sinceros. A maioria de vocês está aqui apenas pra me ver comparar Capitão América: Guerra Civil com Batman V. Superman, não é verdade? Muito bem, aqui vai então: Guerra Civil é INFINITAMENTE melhor que BvS: A Origem da AIDS. De fato, é o tipo de filme que Zack Snyder não conseguiria fazer nem se injetassem D.N.A de Kubrick, Hitchcock e Jodorowsky nele.

Mas se recebesse toda essa carga genética, Snyder se tornaria o estudante de cinema definitivo.

Enfim, esta foi minha opinião curta e grossa (tal qual o pênis de um anão) sobre Capitão América: Guerra Civil.

Para aqueles que querem uma opinião mais detalhada, continuem lendo.

ATENÇÃO: Esta crítica possui SPOILERS, porque não estou nem aí. De fato, “Hodor” é uma aglutinação de “Hold the Door”, porque ele morreu segurando a porta pro Bran Stark Fugir dos White Walkers. Vá pro diabo que te carregue.

SPOILERS: Pessoas fazem caras estúpidas quando correm

Nossa história começa em Lagos, na Nigéria. Porque o universo cinemático da Marvel adora causar destruição em países africanos. Lá, o Capitão América (Chris Evans) e sua equipe impedem que Ossos Cruzados (Frank Grillo)e seu time de lanfranhudos roubem uma arma química. Em meio a treta, o vilão decide que explodir a si mesmo é uma boa maneira de se livrar do Capitão, mas a Feiticeira Escarlate (Elizabeth Olsen) usa seus poderes para arremessá-lo longe do herói... E no processo ela explode um andar inteiro de um prédio próximo e mata uma dezena de inocentes.

Bom, acho que é assim que super pessoas fazem cagada. O cidadão comum explode um garrafa de guaraná, a Feiticeira Escarlate explode um prédio.

O caso é que a ONU não gostou muito do que aconteceu, e mandou o secretário de estado Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt, provando que O Incrível Hulk realmente é parte do MCU) para informar os Vingadores que os Acordos de Sokovia estão prestes a ser aprovados.

Sokovia? Lembra? Aquele país fictício que virou pó em Os Vingadores: Era de Ultron?

Os Acordos de Sokóvia tem por meta estabelecer um grupo dentro da ONU que supervisionaria e aprovaria (ou não) as ações dos Vingadores. Obviamente, isso divide o grupo. Estevão Rogério não curte a ideia, enquanto Antônio Hirto (Robert Downey Jr.) não vê problemas em ser supervisionado pelas mesmas pessoas que levaram Anita Sarkeesian a sério quando ela reclamou que era xingada na internet.

Então, acontece um congresso em Viena, onde os acordos serão assinados... E UMA BOMBA EXPLODE! E É A CATÁSTROFE!!! MORTE! HORROR! VIOLÊNCIA! E O O REI DE WAKANDA MORRE! OOOOHHHH, A HUMANIDADE!!!

E o aparente culpado é Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), o Soldado Invernal.

Então, Estevão Rogério decide localizar seu velho amigo, antes que ele seja morto pelo governo. Eis que as linhas são traçadas, os heróis escolhem seus lados e começa a... Guerra Civil!

... Guerra Civil que é travada por doze pessoas em um aeroporto e dura vinte minutos. Todas as guerras deveriam ser assim.

E no meio dessa treta toda, tem o Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) que diferente dos quadrinhos, não veste uma meia na cabeça, e manipula toda essa treta das sombras.

Também tem o Pantera Negra (Chadwick Boseman) e o Homem-Aranha (Tom Holland), que fazem com que este seja o melhor filme já produzido na história do cinema.

Cidadão Kane tem um homem vestido de gato? É CLARO QUE NÃO!

Obviamente, o filme foi inspirado no arco Guerra Civil, publicado entre 2006 e 2007, e que acabou sendo um belíssimo sanduíche de merda.

Digo, a saga começou razoavelmente bem (se ignorarmos certos fatores que discutirei a seguir), e mostrou acontecimentos capazes de balançar de forma bastante interessante o status quo da Marvel. Digo, Homem-Aranha revelando sua identidade secreta ao público? SANTA SANTA SANTÍSSIMA, É DISSO QUE SÃO FEITOS OS SONHOS!!!

Disso e de Luciana Vendramini.

Mas então a série degringolou. Personagens foram descaracterizados (o Homem de Ferro virou um facistinha nível Facebook), outros foram ridiculamente mal usados (o Justiceiro e sua participação de meia revista) e toda uma saga sobre o conflito ideológico entre dois exércitos de heróis terminou mais morna do que transar com a prima.

Embora “Guerra Civil” seja uma maneira hiperbólica de se referir a meia dúzia de pessoas coloridas trocando tapas, o filme aproveita a ideia do conflito de forma muito melhor que os quadrinhos. Pra começar, no universo cinematográfico, heróis há menos de dez anos (Homem de Ferro é de 2008), então é fácil entender que tanto as Nações Unidas quanto o grande público os veriam com desconfiança após as catástrofes da Sokóvia, do ataque em Nova York, e daquele pequeno caos que o Hulk causou na África do Sul.

Diferente dos quadrinhos, onde heróis salvam o mundo em um base semanal desde que o Keith Richards era sóbrio. É bem difícil acreditar que a sociedade inteira se voltou contra eles por causa de um único acidente.

“Mas foi um acidente que matou trezentas crianças, claro que a opinião pública...”

Não, ela não se voltaria contra pessoas que já impediram o Galactus de comer a Terra. Parte da população, claro. E políticos interessados em usar a polêmica para alavancar a própria carreira. Mas TODO MUNDO decidir de repente que heróis são uma ameaça? Após setenta anos de gente de colante salvando o mundo? Não. De forma alguma.

Steve: Se formos presos, quem vai salvar o universo do Thanos?
Tony: O Sarney.

O filme também não descaracteriza seu elenco. Stark apoia a decisão da ONU, mas isso se deve a sua evolução como personagem dentro do MCU. É seguro afirmar que os eventos de Os Vingadores traumatizaram Tony. De repente, ele se viu no meio do espaço, diante de uma força de invasão capaz de tomar o planeta em meras horas. Desde então, ele vive o pavor de que a qualquer momento, alguma ameaça pode surgir e erradicar toda a vida na Terra.

Considerando o que sabemos do universo Marvel, ele não está errado.

E foi este medo que o levou a criar Ultron, que deveria ser o protetor de humanidade e quase tornou-se seu algoz. Agora, culpado pelas vidas que não pode salvar (ou que viu serem dano colateral nas missões de seus colegas), ele apoia o governo e uma decisão que é no mínimo questionável.

Tony não é um vilão. É um homem bem intencionado e temeroso, que em sua ânsia de proteger inocentes, não consegue enxergar um meio termo para resolver a questão.

Por outro lado, Steve Rogers também não é o senhor inquestionável da razão. Embora esteja certo quando diz que se os Vingadores tiverem de responder a uma autoridade maior, será ela que decidirá quem são os “vilões”, ele arrogantemente acredita que ele e seu grupo são os mais adequados para determinarem quando e como devem agir.

Os personagens possuem motivações mais claras, e não seguem as morais preto-e-branco do quadrinho. Aqui é tudo muito mais cinza, e escolher entre #TeamCap e #TeamIron não é tão simples.

Claro, a menos que você seja um adolescente tonto que enxerga tudo de forma binária e não é capaz de pensar fora da caixa por um segundo que seja.... OOOOOOHHHHHH, COMO EU TE ODEIO!!!

A Wanda eu não odeio. A Wanda é cheirosa.

Um dos maiores problemas com Os Vingadores: A Era de Ultron, foi o quanto o filme acabou abarrotado. Coisas demais foram apresentados ao público em uma única história: Ultron, Wanda e Pietro, Ulysses Claw (Andy Serkis, que será o vilão Garra Sônica no futuro), o Visão... Enfim, a história ficou bastante abarrotada.

Claro, você pode dizer que para um fã de quadrinhos que já conheça estes elementos, não há nenhum problema. Mas tente lembrar que nem todos são nerds abilolados de 42 anos que decoraram toda a timeline da Marvel (e DC), e que secretamente sonham em ter seu primeiro beijo com a balconista gatinha da loja de comics.

E que sonham também que a mesma funcionária sente uma atração inexplicável por homens que tomam apenas um banho por semana.

O grande problema de Era de Ultron é seu ritmo, tudo acontece muito rápido e sem ser plenamente estabelecido. Assim que Wanda entra em cena, ela já usa seus poderes (que opúblico ainda não sabe quais são) pra mexer com a cabeça do Tony Stark. Ultron mal se apresenta e já cria uma cena de caos tremendo. O Visão aparece e após um breve discurso, temos de aceitar que ele é um super sangue bom onipotente.

Logo após assistir Era de Ultron, fiquei com medo de que ele fosse o anúncio de um grave problema para o MCU: O de que ele eventualmente desabaria debaixo de seu próprio peso. De que com o tempo, tantos elementos novos seriam introduzidos a este universo, que seria impossível mantê-lo coerente ou minimamente estável.

Basicamente, o que aconteceu com os quadrinhos após mais de cinquenta anos de publicações.

Felizmente, Guerra Civil conseguiu aliviar bastante este temor. O filme traz tantos ou mais elementos novos que Era de Ultron, mas os irmãos Russo acertaram magnificamente na direção, e dão tempo para que toda a nova informação seja devidamente apresentada ao público. Temos a culminação do relacionamento entre Rogers e Bucky, um conflito ideológico que pode destruir os Vingadores (pelo menos até Guerra do Infinito) e a introdução de dois personagens peso pesado: Pantera Negra e o Homem-Aranha.

O Pantera Negra é magnificamente apresentado. Sua motivação é clara, seu desenvolvimento é extremamente satisfatório, e sua personalidade, nobre e forte, estabelece desde já a importância que ele terá em filmes vindouros.

Quanto ao Homem-Aranha, eu preciso de um parágrafo inteiro pra falar dele, porque vou entrar em modo FANBOY EXTRAORDINAIRE agora.

♫ Nunca bate, só apanha â™«

O Homem-Aranha é meu herói favorito de todos os tempos, e a verdade é que nunca fiquei satisfeito com suas versões cinematográficas.

Os filmes do Sam Raimi são bons, mas descaracterizam demais o personagem. Tobey Maguire interpreta um herói eternamente angustiado e triste, que parece ter sido escolhido para ser o sacode pancadas do universo, só se ferra e que vive em eterno sofrimento pela sua relação (superficial ao ponto de ser ridícula) com a Mary Jane.

Não há leveza no herói. Ele não é falastrão e piadista, mas sim, estoico como um personagem de Final Fantasy.

E o Aranha do Andrew Garfield é ainda pior. Um hipster babaquinha, cheio de agressividade adolescente mal direcionada. Ele JAMAIS seria o CDF rejeitado do colégio, ele seria o líder da turma dos populares e infernizaria a vida dos nerds.

Assim, quando soube que a Sony e a Marvel iriam dividir a custódia do Aranha nos cinemas, tive esperança... E ela não foi em vão. Senhoras e senhores, Tom Holland é o Homem-Aranha definitivo.

“AIN! FANBOY! O CARA APARECEU VINTE MINUTOS SÓ! OLHA O HYPE! NADA A VÊ! TOBEY MAGUIRE RAINHA! IVO HOLLANDA NADINHA! CHOLA MAIS QUE TÁ POUCO! NÃO PASSARÃO!”

É, pois é. E nesses vinte minutos de tela, ele foi um Homem-Aranha melhor do que Maguire e Garfield! De fato, se Maguire e Garfield fizessem a dança da fusão, ainda não chegariam aos pés de Tom Holland, e provavelmente a fusão se chamaria “Maguirfield”.

“McGuffin”?

“MacGaren”, sim. Isso sim!

Mas bem, vamos por partes. O que torna a versão de Tom Holland tão perfeita?

Pra começar, ele é um gênio da ciência. Um aspecto importantíssimo na mitologia do personagem, e que foi ignorado nos filmes de Sam Raimi, e apenas pincelado nas bombas de Andrew Garfield.

Segundo, ele é falastrão e piadista pelos motivos certos. O humor do Andrew Garfield vinha com uma agressividade difícil de engolir em um herói (a menos que você tenha 14 anos e só curta heróis “QUI MATA”). Aqui, como nos quadrinhos, os comentários do Aranha existem para mostrar o quão libertador é ser um herói. Quando veste seu uniforme, ele não é apenas Peter Parker, CDF pobretão do Queens, mas sim um super herói que salva vidas, inspira as pessoas e que é bom o suficiente para andar lado a lado com os Vingadores.

Finalmente, Tom Holland transmite com muita sinceridade o altruísmo do herói. Seu Peter Parker quer usar os dons que adquiriu para ajudar todos a quem puder. Tobey Maguire parecia encarar seus poderes como um fardo eterno, atrelado a ele pela culpa de não ter salvo o Tio Ben.

O Aranha do Garfield... Eu nem sei. Puta personagem mal desenvlvido de merda.

Holland é perfeito, tanto quanto Peter Parker como Homem-Aranha. Ele transmite a humildade, gentileza, honestidade e determinação do personagem, sem cair na pieguisse. E mesmo sendo o terceiro ator a encarar este papel em anos recentes, ele consegue trazer algo novo, mas ao mesmo tempo familiar, para o MCU.

E o filme se esforça em mostrar como o Homem-Aranha é um herói peso-pesado, capaz de enfrentar e superar adversários muito mais experientes em combate. Como paquita do Aracnídeo, eu não poderia estar mais satisfeito.

E sim, a Tia May (Marisa Tomei) é uma gata.

DEUS ABENÇOE!!!

Que era maravilhosa, em que podemos ter fantasias
com a tia do Peter Parker

Capitão América: Guerra Civil, é o melhor filme da Marvel até  momento.

Ele estabelece novos personagens, amarra pontas soltas e solidifica as fundações de um universo em constante expansão. Isso sem perder o foco de contar uma ótima história, com excelentes cenas de ação.

A Marvel estabeleceu um novo padrão de qualidade para os filmes de super-heróis, e eu estou muito curioso pra ver como irão superá-lo.

E por hoje é só.

EXCELSIOR!!!

Cheers!!!

          Avengers 4: i fratelli Russo hanno cominciato le riprese!        
Proprio prima del San Diego Comic-Con, i registi Anthony e Joe Russo avevano rivelato che le riprese per Avengers: Infinity War erano state concluse. Ora, quattro settimane dopo, i fratelli Russo hanno comunicato con un post ai fan su Facebook che le riprese per Avengers 4 sono ora cominciate. Ecco di seguito il post dei registi: Già sappiamo che Thanos tornerà in Avengers […]

New Vinimates from the world-hopping Dark Tower film! New Gallery PVCs from the worlds of Marvel comics and Marvel television!...
          Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2        
Saving The Universe One ELO Song At A Time

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 never gets better than its opening sequence. To bring Vol. 1 to a successful conclusion, Groot, the mono-phrased, living tree-man portrayed, as far as it goes, by Vin Diesel, had to sacrifice himself. But, since he's a tree, he budded and was replanted by his platonic life partner Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) — now known simply as Rocket, because apparently it's okay to have a talking raccoon heavy weapons specialist in your movie, but using the word "Raccoon" in his name is just a step too far for the Disney marketing department.

Anyway, Groot has now grown enough to walk, and when you're traveling in Star-Lord's company, you're going to get into some weird scrapes. The camera follows Baby Groot through a battle with a rando glitter octopod, introducing the perpetually bickering Guardians of the Galaxy in turn: the giant, blue Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), green-skinned daughter of Thanos Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and the self-appointed Star-Lord, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt). Like most of the rest of the movie, it's practically all computer animated, but director James Gunn and the Marvel team simulate an Alfonso Cuaron-style, single take tracking shot focusing on what all the laser-fueled mayhem looks like to the sapling Groot.

In addition to being visually thrilling, the shot immediately establishes Baby Groot as the audience surrogate and sets the tone for what we're about to see: spectacular scenes of stylized, bloodless battle delivered with a wink and nudge.

Science fiction started out in the 1800s as a fairly serious-minded enterprise. Then in the early 1900s, it devolved into lurid stories for pulp magazines. Since then, sci-fi books and movies have either embraced the pulp tradition or pushed against it — is it better to be respectable, or is it better to be fun? It seems weird that Arrival and Barbarella are in the same genre, but they represent its two extremes. Star Wars straddled the line between serious and silly by mapping pulp tropes onto a mythological framework. Perhaps because its source material is the descendant of the pulp magazine, comic books, Guardians of the Galaxy sees no need to feign seriousness. Gunn and company just go for whatever feels good from moment to moment. They've got jetpacks, and they're not afraid to use them.

And I'll have to say, it's pretty refreshing. We live in, as Obi-Wan Kenobi would say, the Dark Times. We need escapism. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is providing exactly what Hollywood has historically done best: cinematic comfort food.

Besides, Kurt Russell is in it. He plays Ego, the Living Planet, who is pretty self explanatory. The question of whether or not Ego is Star-Lord's long-lost father provides the plot-like structure to prop up one eye-popping space action sequence after another from Disney's golden hoard of digital artists. It's a tribute to Chris Pratt's charisma that he can share scene after scene with Russell and not be overwhelmed by the actor's epic facial hair.

The other bit of silly alchemy that continues to work for the Guardians franchise is marrying 1970s cheese rock with insane space action. Both Star Trek: Beyond and Doctor Strange tried the same trick, only to fall flat. Guardians nails it repeatedly. Sure, he's got a knack for snappy dialog and endearing character beats, but Gunn's unerring ear is his secret weapon.

It's cool to be back in these characters' colorful, crazy world, but the story seems like a thin, disjointed collection of leftover ideas. The swashbuckling is first rate, but the scale of the violence and the casualness with which it is dispatched by our heroes is occasionally icky. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may not be a masterpiece, but it's a movie that knows exactly what it’s trying to accomplish. Sometimes, that's enough.

Just last week, Joe and Anthony Russo shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for Avengers: Infinity War, giving us our first look (sort of) at Thanos’ return.

          Royals: The Sinister Snarks        

The Inhuman royal family has faced its fair share of villains over the years—and soon they’ll face off against another clan of nobles eager to usurp our heroes and assert their own galactic sovereignty. On September 6, join writer Al Ewing and artist Kevin Libranda for a showdown between the Inhumans and the Snarks in ROYALS #7!

These baddies, the monarchical leaders of an alien reptile species, certainly shouldn’t be underestimated. And just what will go down when these two royal families clash? We caught up with writer Al Ewing to find out.

Marvel.com: The Snarks have a ruling royal family, but one that differs quite a bit from from the Inhumans’ royals. Do the two groups serve as foils for each other?

Al Ewing: They do! It was kind of an accident how it happened—I was casting about for warlike alien races in the Marvel Universe that hadn’t been used much for a while and the Snarks fit the bill. I didn’t realize until I was already well into writing the thing that from the Snarks’ point of view, their royals are on an adventure into space to gain power—kind of a mirror quest to the Inhuman Royals—so it’s actually pretty neat that they end up bumping into one another like this.

Marvel.com: What motivates the Snarks? It seems like they want to watch the world burn, but do they have any other goals or priorities that the Inhumans can use to their advantage?

Al Ewing: The Snarks are warlike, but they’re not just rampaging aliens—their wars are mostly civil wars, battles for succession to the Snark throne. The last time Marvel readers got a close look at one of these royal intrigues was back in the ‘80s when POWER PACK was on the shelves and Prince Jakar of the Zn’rx had the bright idea of stealing Power Pack’s powers to assist him and his mother in usurping the Emperor—well, that’s something that’s caught on. Fast forward to the present and a faction of Snark heirs are roaming the galaxy looking for “weapons”—useful powers they can steal. And they’ve targeted the Universal Inhumans in particular.

Marvel.com: Compared to, say Thanos or Ultron, we’d consider the Snarks lesser known villains, but they still pose quite a threat. What makes them formidable opponents?

Al Ewing: This particular crew have already stolen Kymellian “weapons” before we meet them, which means they have all the powers of Power Pack—essentially, a degree of control over the fundamental forces of the universe. So when they enter the story, they’re already capable of giving the Royals a serious fight… And that’s before they start taking Inhuman abilities.

Marvel.com: Does their reptilian physiology give them any unique advantages or disadvantages?

Al Ewing: Not so much—like human beings, they come in all manner of shapes and sizes, and even within Prince Hyinar’s retinue there are plenty of different personality types butting heads. That said, this particular bunch are especially cold-blooded—and not just literally.

Marvel.com: Would you like to mention or tease anything else?

Al Ewing: I should thank everyone who’s buying and reading the book—it’s always very much appreciated. And to tempt in the curious, I should mention that over the course of this arc, two of the Royals are going to hook up, one of them is going to be changed forever—at least if I have anything to do with it—and we’re going to learn the secret of the Skyspears, in glorious, double-page technicolor! And with the absolutely gorgeous art of Kevin Libranda to feast your eyes on, there’s never been a better time to jump on!

Enter the fray with Al Ewing and artist Kevin Libranda in ROYALS #7 on September 6!

Eu gostei. Principalmente da mudança do Capitão... digo, Steve Rogers. O ato de deixar a barba crescer também dá a ideia de que ele tem coisa mais importantes pra pensar do quer com a velha aparência do Capitão América, ainda mais depois de ter se tornado perseguido por aqueles que ele sempre defendeu.
          Catch Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World        
Do you what has been keeping me excited recently? Well if you are a Marvel's fan, just watched Iron Man 3 as well (and also got stuck to that catchy Blue Da Ba Dee by Eiffel 65), been crazy about Avengers, bought their DVD and also kept on watching the final post credits scene involving shawarma....then you must be a super Marvel' fan like me!

Let us also not forget there was another ending scene in Avengers which has bearing on my blog post today. Shall I do a short recap: We see the leader of the Chitauri alien force explaining the failure of their attack on Earth (led by Loki) to a mysterious alien, who turns and smiles at the idea of dealing with The Avengers would be “courting death itself.” This alien is none other than Thanos and most likely to be the villain for this year’s Thor 2. 

So to go deeper into the story, Loki and Thor return to Asgard in the Thor sequel and because of this ultimate bad ass, Loki and Thor have to work together to stop Thanos from getting the Infinity Gauntlet (what is it about these people and all their dwarf type tools!). So is Thor 2 what this Avengers trailer has promised? Let us have a quick look at the trailer first

          ABCP Episode #85        
This episode of Awesomed By Comics is brought to you by half of the War Rocket Ajax, which was kind enough to lend us one gently used Chris Sims for the episode. Chris sits in for Evie and takes issue with our dislike of Batman and Robin #10, and my love of most things Joe Kelly. Hercules: Death of an Avenger wins multiple awards, Archie comics are discussed on the show for the first time ever, and despite decades of comics reading between the two hosts, nobody can remember whether Thanos has ever had eye beams or not.

          10 чудес природы, которые люди не в состоянии объяснить...        

Иногда складывается впечатление, что природа, подобно сфинксу из Ð°Ð½Ñ‚ичных легенд, играет с Ð½Ð°Ð¼Ð¸ в ÐºÐ°ÐºÑƒÑŽ-то одной ей Ð¿Ð¾Ð½ÑÑ‚ную игру, задавая всё новые и Ð½Ð¾Ð²Ñ‹Ðµ вопросы, на ÐºÐ¾Ñ‚орые не Ð¼Ð¾Ð³ÑƒÑ‚ ответить лучшие из ÑƒÐ¼Ð¾Ð² человечества. Старания учёных объяснить загадочные явления, происходящие в Ñ€Ð°Ð·Ð½Ñ‹Ñ… частях планеты зачастую только запутывают ситуацию, рождая новые головоломки и ÑƒÐ¶Ð°ÑÐ°ÑŽÑ‰ÐµÐ¹ сложности ребусы. К ÑÑ‡Ð°ÑÑ‚ÑŒÑŽ, в Ð¾Ñ‚личие от ÐºÑ€Ð¾Ð²Ð¾Ð¶Ð°Ð´Ð½Ð¾Ð³Ð¾ мифического монстра, природа не ÑƒÐ±Ð¸Ð²Ð°ÐµÑ‚ пытающихся разгадать её тайны, так что каждый из Ð²Ð°Ñ может выдвинуть свою версию событий, о ÐºÐ¾Ñ‚орых пойдёт речь в ÑÑ‚ой подборке.

1. Воронки холма Маунт Болди

Песчаные дюны южного берега озера Мичиган составители туристических путеводителей называют «Ð¶Ð¸Ð²Ñ‹Ð¼Ð¸» — каждый год холм перемещается на Ð¿Ð°Ñ€Ñƒ метров, но Ð² ÑÑ‚ом нет ничего загадочного. Давно известно, что причиной передвижений служит ветер, однако никто из ÑÐ¿ÐµÑ†Ð¸Ð°Ð»Ð¸ÑÑ‚ов пока не Ð¼Ð¾Ð¶ÐµÑ‚ объяснить таинственную способность дюн «Ð¿Ñ€Ð¾Ð³Ð»Ð°Ñ‚Ñ‹Ð²Ð°Ñ‚ÑŒ» людей.

В Ð¸ÑŽÐ»Ðµ прошлого года шестилетний Натан Весснер провалился в Ð²Ð¾Ñ€Ð¾Ð½ÐºÑƒ диаметром около трёх метров, внезапно образовавшуюся прямо под ним. К ÑÑ‡Ð°ÑÑ‚ÑŒÑŽ, мальчика удалось вызволить из Ð¿ÐµÑÑ‡Ð°Ð½Ð¾Ð³Ð¾ плена — понадобились бригада спасателей, экскаваторы и Ð±Ð¾Ð»ÐµÐµ трёх часов времени.

Тем Ð¶Ðµ летом в Ñ…олме появилась ещё одна воронка, при этом геологи, изучающие любопытное явление, не Ð¼Ð¾Ð³ÑƒÑ‚ назвать точных причин возникновения огромных ям. «Ð¡ÑƒÐ´Ñ по Ð²ÑÐµÐ¼Ñƒ, мы Ð¸Ð¼ÐµÐµÐ¼ дело с Ñ€Ð°Ð½ÐµÐµ неизвестным науке геологическим явлением» — поясняет профессор геологии Эрин Агайлан, своими глазами наблюдавшая операцию по ÑÐ¿Ð°ÑÐµÐ½Ð¸ÑŽ Натана.

2. «Ð“лаз Сахары»

Структура Ришат, также известная как «Ð“Ð»Ð°Ð· Сахары» — любопытное геологическое образование диаметром примерно 50 Ð¼ÐµÑ‚ров, раскинувшееся посреди самой жаркой в Ð¼Ð¸Ñ€Ðµ пустыни. При взгляде с Ð²Ñ‹ÑÐ¾Ñ‚Ñ‹ «Ð“лаз» выглядит как концентрические круги всех оттенков синего, ранее считалось, что Структура Ришат появилась в Ñ€ÐµÐ·ÑƒÐ»ÑŒÑ‚ате падения метеорита, но Ð¿Ð¾ÑÐ»ÐµÐ´Ð½Ð¸Ðµ исследования доказывают, что это не Ñ‚ак — как правило, в Ð¼ÐµÑ‚еоритных кратерах присутствуют различные соединения кремния, а Ð² «Ð“лазе Сахары» ничего подобного нет.

Сторонники альтернативных исторических теорий полагают, что Ришат — не Ñ‡Ñ‚о иное, как остатки цивилизации атлантов, о ÐºÐ¾Ñ‚орой упоминал Платон, но ÑÐ¾Ð³Ð»Ð°ÑÐ½Ð¾ геологам, «Ð“лаз» образовался более 100 Ð¼Ð»Ð½ лет назад, так что даже если атланты существовали на ÑÐ°Ð¼Ð¾Ð¼ деле, скорее всего, они тут ни Ð¿Ñ€Ð¸ чём.

По Ð¾Ð´Ð½Ð¾Ð¹ из Ð²ÐµÑ€ÑÐ¸Ð¹, Ришат — вершина давно потухшего вулкана, но Ð² Ñ‚аком случае неясно, почему отсутствует купол из Ð²ÑƒÐ»ÐºÐ°Ð½Ð¸Ñ‡ÐµÑÐºÐ¸Ñ… пород. Вероятнее всего, происхождение Структуры ещё долгое время будет предметом жарких споров между учёными.

3. Лакированные скалы

Каменные породы, расположенные в Ð¿ÑƒÑÑ‚ынях, часто покрыты напоминающей лак субстанцией различных оттенков — от ÑÐ²ÐµÑ‚ло-оранжевого до Ñ‡Ñ‘рного. Древние люди выцарапывали на «Ð»Ð°ÐºÐµ» изображения животных и Ð¿Ð¾Ñ€Ñ‚реты соплеменников — подобные наскальные арт-объекты пещерных художников расположены по Ð²ÑÐµÐ¼Ñƒ миру, но ÐºÐ°Ðº ни ÑÑ‚ранно, учёные до ÑÐ¸Ñ… пор не Ð·Ð½Ð°ÑŽÑ‚ наверняка, откуда берётся «Ð»Ð°ÐºÐ¾Ð²Ð¾Ðµ покрытие».

По Ð±Ð¾Ð»ÑŒÑˆÐµÐ¹ части «Ð»Ð°Ðº» состоит из Ð³Ð»Ð¸Ð½Ñ‹, и Ð¿Ñ€Ð¸Ð¼ÐµÑ€Ð½Ð¾ на Ñ‚реть — из Ð²ÐºÑ€Ð°Ð¿Ð»ÐµÐ½Ð¸Ð¹ железа и Ð¼Ð°Ñ€Ð³Ð°Ð½Ñ†Ð°, которые и Ð¿Ñ€Ð¸Ð´Ð°ÑŽÑ‚ покрытию различные оттенки, причём концентрация марганца в ÑÑƒÐ±ÑÑ‚анции может в 50 раз превышать его среднее содержание в Ð¾ÐºÑ€ÑƒÐ¶Ð°ÑŽÑ‰ÐµÐ¹ местности. Изучая состав «Ð»Ð°ÐºÐ°» специалисты обнаружили, что некоторые микроорганизмы могут накапливать железо и Ð¼Ð°Ñ€Ð³Ð°Ð½ÐµÑ†, однако если Ð±Ñ‹ покрытие было продуктом их Ð¶Ð¸Ð·Ð½ÐµÐ´ÐµÑÑ‚ельности, его толщина была Ð±Ñ‹ существенно больше.

Одни учёные полагают, что вещество появилось в Ñ€ÐµÐ·ÑƒÐ»ÑŒÑ‚ате вымывания некоторых химических соединений из ÑÐºÐ°Ð»ÑŒÐ½Ñ‹Ñ… пород, а Ð´Ñ€ÑƒÐ³Ð¸Ðµ уверены, что «Ð»Ð°Ðº» образовался из-за оседания некоей пыли, но ÑƒÐ±ÐµÐ´Ð¸Ñ‚ельных доказательств подобных версий нет. В Ð½Ð°ÑÑ‚Ð¾ÑÑ‰ÐµÐµ время также разрабатывается теория альтернативной биохимии, согласно которой, «Ð»Ð°ÐºÐ¸Ñ€Ð¾Ð²ÐºÐ°» является следами существования на Ð—емле кремниевых форм жизни.

4. Утурунку

Последнее извержение вулкана Утурунку, расположенного в ÑŽÐ³Ð¾-восточной части Боливии, произошло около 300 тыс лет назад, но Ð³Ð¸Ð³Ð°Ð½Ñ‚ высотой около 6 ÐºÐ¼ и ÑÐµÐ¹Ñ‡Ð°Ñ не Ð¿ÐµÑ€ÐµÑÑ‚аёт удивлять учёных. В Ñ…Ð¾Ð´Ðµ спутниковых наблюдений исследователи выяснили, что его подземные полости заполняются магмой примерно в Ð´ÐµÑÑÑ‚ÑŒ раз быстрее, чем у Ð°Ð½Ð°Ð»Ð¾Ð³Ð¸Ñ‡Ð½Ñ‹Ñ… огнедышащих гор.

В Ñ€ÐµÐ·ÑƒÐ»ÑŒÑ‚Ð°Ñ‚Ðµ гиперактивности Утурунку местность в Ñ€Ð°Ð¹Ð¾Ð½Ðµ 70 ÐºÐ¼ вокруг вулкана ежегодно становится на Ð¿Ð°Ñ€Ñƒ сантиметров выше. Геоморфологи самым пристальным образом наблюдают за ÑÑ‚им процессом, судя по Ð²ÑÐµÐ¼Ñƒ, начавшимся относительно недавно, но Ñ‡Ñ‚о послужило его причиной, и Ñ‡ÐµÐ¼ всё это закончится, пока непонятно.

Шан де Ð¡Ð¸Ð»ÑŒÐ²Ð°, сотрудник Орегонского университета, считает, что любопытное, но Ð½ÐµÑÐºÐ¾Ð»ÑŒÐºÐ¾ тревожное явление может свидетельствовать о Ð±Ñ‹ÑÑ‚ром превращении Утурунку в ÑÑƒÐ¿ÐµÑ€Ð²ÑƒÐ»ÐºÐ°Ð½, извержение которого будет иметь катастрофические последствия для климата планеты, однако многие эксперты находят эту версию не ÑÐ»Ð¸ÑˆÐºÐ¾Ð¼ убедительной. Как Ð±Ñ‹ то Ð½Ð¸ Ð±Ñ‹Ð»Ð¾, Утурунку растёт с Ð¿ÑƒÐ³Ð°ÑŽÑ‰ÐµÐ¹ скоростью и Ð½Ð¸ÐºÑ‚о не Ð·Ð½Ð°ÐµÑ‚, почему.

5. Массовое пермское вымирание

Экологическая катастрофа, случившаяся в ÐºÐ¾Ð½Ñ†Ðµ пермского периода, не Ð´Ð°Ñ‘Ñ‚ покоя палеонтологам — причина, по ÐºÐ¾Ñ‚орой за ÐºÐ¾Ñ€Ð¾Ñ‚кое время вымерли от 93% до 97% процентов всех биологических видов, до ÑÐ¸Ñ… пор остаётся для учёных загадкой.

Одна из ÑÐ°Ð¼Ñ‹Ñ… популярных версий гласит, что большая часть земной жизни была уничтожена в Ñ€ÐµÐ·ÑƒÐ»ÑŒÑ‚ате падения огромного метеорита, но Ð²ÐµÑÐ¾Ð¼Ñ‹Ñ… доказательств этого пока не Ð½Ð°Ð¹Ð´ÐµÐ½Ð¾. Сторонники Ð´Ñ€ÑƒÐ³Ð¾Ð¹ теории предполагают, что виной всему может быть вулканическая активность, из-за которой загорелись обширные угольные месторождения, что в ÑÐ²Ð¾ÑŽ очередь вызвало парниковый эффект и Ñ€ÐµÐ·ÐºÐ¾Ðµ повышение температуры.

Некоторые учёные также обвиняют во Ð²ÑÑ‘м вулканы, но ÑÑ‡Ð¸Ñ‚ают, что не Ð¾Ð±Ð¾ÑˆÐ»Ð¾ÑÑŒ без микроорганизма Methanosarcina, способного в Ð¾Ð³Ñ€Ð¾Ð¼Ð½Ñ‹Ñ… количествах вырабатывать метан. Согласно этой теории, вулканическая активность спровоцировала взрывной рост популяции Methanosarcina, и ÑƒÐ²ÐµÐ»Ð¸Ñ‡ÐµÐ½Ð¸Ðµ содержания метана в Ð°Ñ‚мосфере, что также могло стать причиной возникновения парникового эффекта. Так или иначе, специалистам ещё предстоит выяснить, из-за чего произошло массовое пермское вымирание.

6. Озеро Хиллер

Озеро Хиллер Ð±Ñ‹Ð»Ð¾ обнаружено в 1802-м году в Ð¾Ð´Ð½Ð¾Ð¹ из Ð°Ð²ÑÑ‚ралийских пустынь — с Ñ‚ех пор учёные безуспешно пытаются понять, чем вызван необычный ярко-розовый цвет водоёма.

Хиллер — не ÐµÐ´Ð¸Ð½ÑÑ‚венное розовое озеро в Ð¼Ð¸Ñ€Ðµ, но ÐµÑÐ»Ð¸ в Ð´Ñ€ÑƒÐ³Ð¸Ñ… случаях «Ð³Ð»Ð°Ð¼ÑƒÑ€Ð½Ñ‹Ð¹» оттенок воды объясняется наличием креветок и Ð¼Ð¸ÐºÑ€Ð¾Ð¾Ñ€Ð³Ð°Ð½Ð¸Ð·Ð¼Ð¾Ð², как в Ð¾Ð·ÐµÑ€Ðµ Пинк, расположенном в ÑˆÑ‚ате Западная Австралия, или водорослями, как в ÑÐµÐ½ÐµÐ³Ð°Ð»ÑŒÑÐºÐ¾Ð¼ озере Ретба, то Ð¥Ð¸Ð»Ð»ÐµÑ€ пока не Ñ€Ð°ÑÐºÑ€Ñ‹Ð²Ð°ÐµÑ‚ исследователям тайну своих розовых вод.

Ранее учёные предполагали, что причиной также являются бактерии, но Ð¸ÑÑÐ»ÐµÐ´Ð¾Ð²Ð°Ð½Ð¸Ñ, проведённые в 1950-х годах не Ð¿Ð¾Ð´Ñ‚вердили эту версию — микроорганизмы просто не Ð²Ñ‹Ð¶Ð¸Ð»Ð¸ Ð±Ñ‹ в Ð¾Ð·ÐµÑ€Ðµ из-за чрезвычайно высокого содержания в Ð½Ñ‘м соли. В Ñ…Ð¾Ð´Ðµ дальнейших научных изысканий специалистам так и Ð½Ðµ ÑƒÐ´Ð°Ð»Ð¾ÑÑŒ выяснить, что окрашивает Хиллер в Ñ€Ð¾Ð·Ð¾Ð²Ñ‹Ð¹ цвет, некоторые даже уверяли, что виной всему обман зрения, но ÑÑ‚о предположение не Ð²Ñ‹Ð´ÐµÑ€Ð¶Ð¸Ð²Ð°ÐµÑ‚ элементарной критики — достаточно набрать воды из Ð¾Ð·ÐµÑ€Ð° в Ð±ÑƒÑ‚ылку, чтобы убедиться, что она действительно ярко-розовая.

7. Образование Гавайских островов

Большинство учёных сходятся во Ð¼Ð½ÐµÐ½Ð¸Ð¸, что Гавайский архипелаг появился на ÑÐ²ÐµÑ‚ из-за активности подводных вулканов.

По Ð½Ð°Ð¸Ð±Ð¾Ð»ÐµÐµ распространённой в Ð½Ð°ÑÑ‚оящее время версии, острова возникли в Ñ€ÐµÐ·ÑƒÐ»ÑŒÑ‚ате выхода на Ð¿Ð¾Ð²ÐµÑ€Ñ…ность так называемых мантийных плюмов — магматических потоков нижних слоёв мантии планеты. Как известно, тектонические плиты медленно «Ð¿Ð»Ñ‹Ð²ÑƒÑ‚» по Ð¼Ð°Ð½Ñ‚ии, перемещаясь со ÑÐºÐ¾Ñ€Ð¾ÑÑ‚ью несколько сантиметров в Ð³Ð¾Ð´, однако точки выхода плюмов остаются неизменными — этим можно объяснить сильную разницу в Ð²Ð¾Ð·Ñ€Ð°ÑÑ‚е между островами и Ð¸Ñ… ÑÐ¿ÐµÑ†Ð¸Ñ„ическое расположение. По Ð¿Ð¾Ð´ÑÑ‡Ñ‘там специалистов, формирование Гавайев началось около 80 Ð¼Ð»Ð½ лет назад и Ð¿Ñ€Ð¾Ð´Ð¾Ð»Ð¶Ð°ÐµÑ‚ся по ÑÐµÐ¹ день, о Ñ‡Ñ‘м говорят частые извержения подводных вулканов архипелага.

Как Ð±Ñ‹ красиво ни Ð·Ð²ÑƒÑ‡Ð°Ð»Ð° эта версия, пока она остаётся лишь предположением, впрочем, весьма убедительным.

8. Возраст Гранд-Каньона

Большой Каньон — одна из ÑÐ°Ð¼Ñ‹Ñ… известных достопримечательностей Соединённых Штатов. Это уникальное геологическое образование изучено вдоль и Ð¿Ð¾Ð¿ÐµÑ€Ñ‘к, но Ð³ÐµÐ¾Ð»Ð¾Ð³Ð¸ до ÑÐ¸Ñ… пор не Ð¼Ð¾Ð³ÑƒÑ‚ прийти к Ð¾Ð±Ñ‰ÐµÐ¼Ñƒ мнению о ÐµÐ³Ð¾ возрасте — одни называют цифры в ÑˆÐµÑÑ‚ÑŒ миллионов лет, другие говорят о ÑÐµÐ¼Ð¸Ð´ÐµÑÑÑ‚и миллионах.

Существуют различные точки зрения и Ð½Ð° Ð¾ÑÐ¾Ð±ÐµÐ½Ð½Ð¾ÑÑ‚и формирования Каньона — был Ð»Ð¸ он Ð¿Ñ€Ð¾Ð»Ð¾Ð¶ÐµÐ½ в ÑÐºÐ°Ð»ÑŒÐ½Ð¾Ð¹ породе рекой Колорадо, или появился задолго до Ñ‚ого, как стал руслом реки.

Исследователи приводят различные аргументы в Ð¿Ð¾Ð»ÑŒÐ·Ñƒ своих версий, каждый год выходят сотни статей, ведутся десятки исследований, посвящённых этой теме, однако судя по Ð²ÑÐµÐ¼Ñƒ, образование Каньона ещё не Ð¾Ð´Ð¸Ð½ десяток лет будет предметÐ

          'The Avengers 2' : Joss Whedon Will Write And Direct 'Avengers 2        
Joss Whedon has agreed to write and direct a sequel to his blockbuster The Avengers.


In news that we all expected to hear eventually, admired geek auteur Joss Whedon has agreed to acknowledgment for the assured aftereffect to this summer’s better movie, The Avengers. The advertisement was made by Disney CEO Bob Iger during the company’s balance appointment alarm this morning, and admitting Iger offered no added capacity on the added Avengers cine he did acknowledgment that Whedon would accept a duke in the accessible Marvel Comics-based TV appearance planned to arise on ABC.


If your actual acknowledgment to this news is to acclamation politely, again cycle your eyes at anyone who didn’t see this coming, you’re not alone. The Avengers raked in a bluntly atrocious bulk of banknote at the box appointment (Box Appointment Mojo currently pegs the absolute at aloof beneath $1.5 billion worldwide) and back Hollywood is no best run by abstruse Communists it alone makes faculty that Disney and Marvel Studios would demand to arouse the acute pieces of that blur for a added movie. While acutely this includes The Avengers’ massive casting of superheroes, a acceptable accord of the aboriginal film’s success should be attributed to the man who both wrote and directed the flick: Joss Whedon.


Though we don’t apperceive the specifics of Whedon’s accord with Marvel, it is accepted that he will both calligraphy and absolute The Avengers 2. Likewise, admitting we apperceive annihilation about the movie’s plot, we feel safe to accept it will affection Thanos as key adversary (as prophesized by this post-credits stinger).


With so little new advice to go on, it’s appetizing to brainstorm berserk on the administration Joss Whedon will booty with this movie, so let’s do that. Given the success of Whedon’s aboriginal Avengers flick we’re activity to accept that Marvel will accord the auteur far added abandon to acquaint whatever adventure he’d like with the sequel. That, added the admittance of Thanos, and the accessible captivation of The Avengers themselves has us carefully acquisitive that The Avengers 2 will be an adjustment of Marvel’s archetypal Infinity Gauntlet saga.


Though the 1990s were article of a low point for comics as a whole, this 1991 crossover accident was a massively ballsy account featuring a actually god-like adversary aggressive the best able heroes in the Marvel cosmos en masse. It finer anchored the avant-garde angle of who and what Thanos is  ahead he had still been at atomic partially apparent as a banter of DC Comics’ Darkseid since, well, that’s what he was created to be — and showed that there are foes able of giving the best able of superteams a run for their money, while additionally spinning an interesting, acute saga.


As we’ve acicular out though, an adjustment of the Infinity Gauntlet storyline would about necessarily crave abundant added Marvel characters to be alien to audiences. We accept acceptance that the flat could cull this off (especially with Whedon’s autograph chops at its disposal), but it would booty years of added blur assembly to accompany the accepted accessible up to acceleration on the all-encompassing fiction that goes into cogent this tale. Alternately the blur could comedy fast and lose with assertive artifice details, but with Marvel Studios attempting to body a anatomic blur cosmos that mirrors its banana book assize we agnosticism the admiral that be would demand to excise too much necessary information.

          Greece: Lone Migrant Children Left Unprotected         

Entrance into the Moria hotspot in Lesbos, Greece, where children registered as adults are accommodated with unrelated adult single men, exposed to very poor living conditions, including overcrowding, inadequate sanitation, and frequent incidents of violence.

(Athens) – Unaccompanied migrant children on the Greek island of Lesbos are being incorrectly identified as adults and housed with unrelated adults, leaving them vulnerable to abuse and unable to access the specific care they need, Human Rights Watch said today.

“The misidentification of unaccompanied migrant kids on Lesbos as adults leads to real problems, including lumping them together with unrelated adults and denying them the care they need,” said Eva Cossé, Greece researcher at Human Rights Watch. “Greek authorities need to take responsibility for properly identifying unaccompanied children and providing them the protection and care every child needs.”

On visits to Lesbos island from May 22 to 28 and June 27 to 30, 2017, Human Rights Watch spoke with 20 children, some as young as 15, who said they had been wrongly registered as adults by the Greek authorities.

Flawed and inadequate procedures leave unaccompanied migrant children on the Greek island of Lesbos housed with unrelated adults, vulnerable to abuse, and unable to access the specific care they need.

Under Greek and international law, unaccompanied children are entitled to special care and protection. But the flawed age assessment procedures that are being followed in practice mean that some of these children are wrongly deemed adults during registration, despite an assurance by Greek officials to Human Rights Watch that a proper, multidiscipline procedure is followed. Other children claim to be adults, believing it will allow them to avoid detention or because they follow bad advice from adults, but then realize they have made a mistake and try to persuade the authorities to register them correctly. They can spend months trying to change their official status, and in the meantime often continue to be treated as adults, or reach adulthood, known as “aging out,” while waiting for their correct age to be assessed.

Human Rights Watch found that officials who register new arrivals sometimes arbitrarily record children’s ages as older than the children themselves give. Authorities also often require unaccompanied children to receive cursory dental examinations at the local hospital as a form of age assessment, following which authorities may insist the child is in fact an adult and register them as such. Human Rights Watch found this occurs despite a 2013 ministerial decision setting out a multidiscipline approach to age assessment, with medical examinations as an option of last resort and despite an assurance from Greece’s Reception and Identification Service (RIS), a Greek government agency, that the principle of the best interest of the child always prevails.

On the other hand, reception service officials do not usually question unaccompanied children who claim to be adults even when their appearance strongly suggests that they are well under 18. In practice, authorities fail to provide children with adequate information about their rights during the reception and identification process on the islands and take no steps to verify whether an individual claiming to be an adult is a child, creating a risk that trafficked children will not be identified and protected from further harm.

While registered unaccompanied children should be transferred to safe accommodation, Greece has a chronic shortage of space. Pending placement in a shelter, the authorities often detain unaccompanied migrant children in police stations, immigration detention facilities, and European Union-managed asylum processing centers. As of June 20, 1,149 unaccompanied migrant children were on the waiting list for shelter, including 296 detained in such facilities.

The problem has grown more acute since the arrival of more than 1 million people in the Greek islands in 2015 and 2016. Border closures in countries to the north have effectively trapped asylum seekers and migrants in Greece, and a deeply flawed EU deal with Turkey, signed in March 2016, has led Greece to restrict asylum seekers to the Greek islands with the aim of returning them to Turkey.

Nongovernmental organizations on Lesbos told Human Rights Watch they have identified at least 60 people registered as adults who claim to be children.

Children registered as adults are left to fend for themselves and are vulnerable to exploitation, trafficking, and other abuse. They live in official and unofficial sites with unrelated adult single men; are exposed to inhumane living conditions, including overcrowding, unsanitary conditions, and frequent incidents of violence; and are unable to go to school or otherwise access education. They have little or no access to care, protection, or specialized services, and are excluded from accommodation for unaccompanied children.

Once the Greek authorities register unaccompanied children as adults for whatever reason, it is difficult, if not impossible, for them to change their status. Even when nongovernmental groups identify children as wrongly registered as adults, it can take months to overcome the burdensome bureaucratic procedures to establish their real age and register them as children. The process of being recognized as children took so long in some cases Human Rights Watch examined that the children had turned 18 during the intervening period. This undermined their ability to reunite with family members in other EU countries or to get specialized housing or services for children.

Statements from these children about how they feel suggest the situation in which they find themselves in Greece is causing psychological harm and exacerbates existing mental health conditions, Human Rights Watch said. All the children interviewed reported experiencing psychological distress, including symptoms such as anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, and loss of appetite. Two children reported harming themselves.

Authorities in Greece should urgently improve the quality of their age assessment procedures, bringing them into line with international best practices, Human Rights Watch said. Greek authorities should take steps to identify children, give children whose age is disputed the benefit of the doubt in close cases, and ensure that unaccompanied children have access to decent accommodation where they can receive care, education, counseling, legal aid, guardianship, and other essential services. Those who are determined to be over 18 should be accommodated in special housing for young adults and given access to adequate services, including psychosocial support and mental health services.

The European Commission and the European Asylum Support Office should make use of their presence on the islands to ensure that the Greek authorities’ age assessment methods and procedures fully comply with the legal safeguards provided by Greek and EU law, and that children are given the benefit of the doubt where results are inconclusive. The EU emergency relocation mechanism should also be urgently extended to unaccompanied children identified on the Greek islands, irrespective of nationality, and EU member states should accelerate relocation of unaccompanied migrant children.

“Vulnerable kids in Greece who have endured dangerous journeys far from their families should not have to fight for months just to prove they are children,” Cossé said. “Greece should do a better job identifying these children so they get the care they need and deserve.”

Registering Unaccompanied Migrant Children

Greek authorities formally registered over 1,800 unaccompanied asylum-seeking and migrant children arriving in Greece in the first five months of 2017. Many of them are from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq, countries beset by armed conflict and serious human rights abuses. Some of the others, such as children from Pakistan, were escaping discrimination and poverty.

Greek legislation recognizes the government’s obligations to care for and protect unaccompanied migrant children. Under Greek law the government is supposed to appoint a guardian for each child to represent them in any legal or judicial proceeding, to hear the child’s views prior to any decision-making, and to act in their best interests. But Human Rights Watch found that authorities in Lesbos often register unaccompanied migrant children as adults. Invisible as children, and outside of care arrangements, these children are particularly vulnerable to violence, exploitation, and abuse.

The Greek Reception and Identification Service (RIS) is required to provide for the reception of third-country nationals entering the islands under conditions that guarantee human rights and dignity in accordance with international standards. New arrivals are brought to EU-managed asylum processing centers on the Greek islands, the so-called hotspots, for identification and registration.

The RIS is responsible for identifying and registering people who belong to “vulnerable” groups upon their arrival, which should include unaccompanied migrant children. The agency is supported in doing this by the Greek police; EU agencies, such as the border agency Frontex; UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency; the International Organization for Migration; and medical nongovernmental organizations. RIS is responsible for referring unaccompanied migrant children to social services and providing them with information on their rights, including their right to seek asylum. In a July 10 letter to Human Rights Watch, RIS said that particular attention is given to the procedures for unaccompanied children who “receive specific information adapted to their age or maturity about their legal status and the procedural possibilities offered at subsequent phases of the process.” In practice on Lesbos, though, Human Rights Watch found that RIS is failing to meet its responsibilities toward these children.

“Zahid,” a boy from Pakistan who said he was 16 when he arrived on Lesbos in March 2016, described the inadequate procedure during his first encounter with the authorities:

When I arrived, I was 16 but they [authorities] wrote on the papers 19. They didn’t even take me to the doctor. …. They asked me my name, my age, and then they took my fingerprints…. I told them I was 16. They separated me from the other people and took me where the unaccompanied children are [a restricted section for unaccompanied children inside the Moria hotspot]. They kept me there for 10 or 15 days and then they took me out again. They never explained to me why, they just took me out. Then I stayed with other people, outside [the children’s section]…. I don't know why they changed my age. I asked them many times and the only thing they told me is to sign some papers.  

Fifteen months after his arrival, Zahid, today 17, was still being treated as an adult by the authorities and his real age hadn’t been formally recognized.

“Amadou,” a 16-year-old unaccompanied boy from West Africa playing with a soccer ball in front of a container on Lesbos, Greece. Amadou, on Lesbos since October 2016, said the lack of adequate information and fear of detention, made him register as an adult but after a few days when he realized he made a mistake he was unable to register his real age.

Children Who Claim to be Adults

Human Rights Watch spoke with six children in Lesbos who said they falsely claimed to be adults when they arrived in Greece. They did so, they said, because they feared detention or because they heard false information from smugglers or other migrants that registration as a child would lead to worse outcomes, such as separation from friends and distant family. When they realized the unpleasant consequences of being registered as an adult or because, finally, they were correctly advised, they said they told officials that they wanted to change their age to the correct one, but faced many obstacles.

“Hassan,” a boy from Afghanistan, said he was 15 when he arrived in June 2016:

Before doing my registration, several Afghans told me ‘don’t give your real age because they are going to keep you in the children’s section.’ … They [the authorities] told me ‘you look underage, if you have papers show them to us.’ I said I don’t have any papers and because the others had told me to not say I’m a minor, I said I’m an adult.

He said it took two other unrelated adults traveling with him to say he is an adult to convince the authorities. The inadequacy of identification procedures means that there is a serious risk that trafficked children are not recognized as such.

Hassan, who is now 16, lived for more than eight months with the general population of the Moria camp, mainly unrelated adult single men. At the time of our interview, in May, he had been living for two months in a protected area within the Moria hotspot that accommodates young men between the ages of 18 to 22 and some of those whose ages are disputed, run by the RIS. He said his age had been formally recognized by the Greek Asylum Service (GAS), in the context of the asylum process, but was still pending recognition by the RIS.

“[RIS told me] ‘You are a guest in our space and we are not responsible for you anymore.’ I just wanted to know what will happen to me and whether I’ll be transferred to a house [for unaccompanied children] and go to school.”

According to nongovernmental groups and children interviewed, when detention measures for unaccompanied children were relaxed on the island of Lesbos at the end of 2016, and children were allowed to go in and out of the section for unaccompanied migrant children, many children who had initially given a false age and registered as adults because of fear of detention said they changed their minds, wanting to register their real age. Others sought to do so when they received proper information from nongovernmental groups, which instructed them to tell the truth.

Inadequate Age Assessment

When authorities are in doubt as to whether a person is a child, Greek law requires that they must first give that person the benefit of the doubt, operating on a presumption of childhood, and second, perform a comprehensive age determination.

UNHCR and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child have instructed countries not to base age determinations solely on the child’s physical appearance or on a single medical test, but also to consider psychological maturity and the margin of error of medical exams (which can be up to five years), and to give the benefit of doubt in making a determination. In ethical terms, such exams offer no medical benefit and the margin of error is so broad that the exams can’t establish what they are intended to do.

Best practices in age determination require a multidisciplinary approach. Any medical testing should be non-intrusive. X-rays for age determination are increasingly regarded as a violation of medical ethics because they expose children to radiological testing for no medical reason.

While an age determination process is ongoing, the person should not be detained or otherwise accommodated with unrelated adults.

As of October 2013, a decision by the health minister (MD 92490/2013) established for the first time an age assessment procedure applicable within the context of what was then called the First Reception Service, now the RIS.

The ministerial decision says that in cases in which there is justifiable doubt about the age of a third-country national, and the person may possibly be a child, they are to be referred to the RIS medical control and psychosocial support team for an age assessment. Initially, the age assessment will be based on physical appearance, such as height, weight, body mass index, voice, and hair growth, following a clinical examination by a pediatrician. In case the person’s age cannot be adequately determined, the psychologist and the social worker will assess the person’s cognitive, behavioral, and psychological development.

If a pediatrician is not available or the interdisciplinary staff cannot reach any firm conclusions – and only as a measure of last resort, the decision says – the person shall be referred to a public hospital for specialized medical examinations, such as dental or wrist X-rays. Staff there are to explain clearly their aims and the procedures to the person being examined.

In a July 10 letter to Human Rights Watch, RIS said that, “In any case, the principle of the child’s best interests, equal treatment, and proportionality must prevail. During the age assessment procedure as well as in case of doubts after its completion, the minority presumption prevails.”

Human Rights Watch found that the age assessment procedure provided in Greek law is not followed in practice on Lesbos. All 14 people interviewed who told the authorities they were under 18 when they arrived said they were registered as adults following a cursory age assessment, which in most cases consisted of a visit to the local hospital and a quick examination of their teeth. None of the children who had gone through this medical examination had first, or indeed ever, been interviewed by a psychologist or a social worker for an age assessment. Even though the procedure provided in Greek law had not been followed, RIS registered them as adults.

“Akash,” who is from Bangladesh and said he turned 18 in March, arrived on Lesbos in the summer of 2016, when he was 17. He said the authorities registered him as 18 following a quick visit to the hospital. “In the beginning, they wrote I was 17 but then they took me to the doctor and wrote down 18.” He said:

When they took me to the doctor, the doctor examined my teeth in order to define my age. But I don’t understand. There are people who have their wisdom teeth at the age of 17, others at the age of 18 and others at the age of 22. The doctor just examined my teeth. They changed my age [to 18] and took me out [of the children’s section].

Akash said he lived for more than four months with the general population of the camp before being transferred to a protected area inside Moria run by the RIS for people between the ages of 18-22. In early June 2017, he was transferred again outside, with the general population, due to lack of space. His real age was never formally recognized. “I tried as much as I could, but they [authorities] never accepted my age,” he said.

Contesting Designation as an Adult

Once children are registered as adults, either following a cursory age assessment procedure, or because they initially claimed they were adults, it is difficult if not impossible for them to change their status to that of a child.

Under Greek law, after a RIS age assessment procedure is completed, the person should be informed in a language they understand about the reasons for the decision. They have a right to appeal within 10 days, but RIS requires anyone who files an appeal to provide an original ID or original passport proving their age, which should be officially translated or verified, within this period.

All children interviewed said they faced practical difficulties in getting identification documents proving their age within the 10-day period. Human Rights Watch found that all appeals brought by children interviewed, were rejected by RIS. In rejecting the appeals, RIS disregarded the proven and objective difficulties for children to verify or officially translate the documents or to get legal assistance.

Some children said they had no parents or relatives in their home countries to provide the documents, and others had refugee profiles that could put them at risk if they contacted their embassies or relatives in their home countries.

For most, their only chance to seek to establish their age was at a later stage, during the asylum interview, conducted either by Greek Asylum Service (GAS) staff or officers of the European Asylum Support Office (EASO). Greek law sets out guarantees for children in that procedure, including the appointment of a guardian to protect the child’s rights and best interests throughout the age determination procedure, and the guarantee that a person who claims to be a child should be treated as such until the completion of the age determination procedure. The law also explicitly provides the applicant with the benefit of the doubt even after the conclusion of the procedure if the person’s age has not definitively been determined.

Human Rights Watch found that when it comes to children who have been wrongly registered as adults by RIS, the asylum service does not deviate from RIS findings unless explicit proof is provided. In a July 12 letter to Human Rights Watch, the asylum service confirmed that it cannot change data recorded by RIS and the police during initial registration “unless the applicant produces compelling evidence (e.g. an original passport not presented to RIS or the police) to the contrary.” The procedure before the asylum service can last for months, and while it is ongoing, children interviewed by Human Rights Watch were treated as adults.

“Anush,” a boy from Afghanistan who said he initially registered as an adult in August 2016, tried to get his real age – 16 – recognized during his asylum interview in February 2017:

Because I told them I am a child, they didn’t ask me many questions. Basically, they asked me why I came from Turkey and didn’t stay there…. The interview lasted for an hour. They asked ‘Why didn’t you stay in Turkey? Why you didn’t go to UNHCR offices and register there?’ I told them that when I was in Turkey, a guy [smuggler] had me as some kind of a prisoner and also because I am under age I couldn’t have access to school or go to the hospital.

A worker with a nongovernmental group supporting “Anush” with his case said:

He provided his original birth certificate more than two-and-a-half months ago. We went to EASO, provided it, and registered him as a minor. The document was checked by Frontex as to whether it’s original. After waiting for more than two months, Anush goes to renew his asylum card and is given an appointment for a second interview, as an adult…. We go again today, and the EASO officer says in front of Anush, and the lawyer, that we need to do a new registration and that they had forgotten we already submitted the papers. Today, Anush lost completely his trust in the system and us.

At the time of our interview, in May, Anush was living with the adult population of the Moria camp and his real age hadn’t been formally recognized yet.

In a July 12 letter to Human Rights Watch, the asylum service said that if it appears that the asylum seeker is a child traveling alone, its officers are instructed to treat the case as such. The officer is obliged to notify the public prosecutor, who will act as the temporary guardian, and the National Center for Social Solidarity. In more general terms, the asylum service said that its officers are instructed to conduct the asylum interview always bearing in mind the best interest of the child.

Children at Risk

Unaccompanied children are some of the most vulnerable migrants in the world; international and European human rights law, as well as EU law, recognizes that vulnerability, and obliges countries to provide unaccompanied children with care. International law stipulates that the child’s best interest is a primary consideration in any decision affecting the child and that children deprived of their family environment are entitled to special protection and assistance by the state.

The failure to carry out proper age and vulnerability assessments means that many children are not recognized as children. Most find themselves without appropriate accommodation and therefore sleep in conditions that are overcrowded, unhygienic, and a risk to their physical health and mental well-being. They stay in open spaces on the Greek islands in official and unofficial sites, share tents or container housing with adult strangers, and are exposed to frequent incidents of violence. They are unable to go to school or otherwise access education.

On an ad-hoc basis, and depending on capacity, authorities on Lesbos place people who are seeking to prove they are under 18 in protected areas within the Moria hotspot. Some of the children interviewed were accommodated there at the time of the interview. But increased arrivals and overcrowding have resulted in transfers of these children to places outside of the protected areas. Others have been living in the open space with unrelated adult single men since their arrival.

There are no reliable estimates of the number of children who may be registered as adults but who haven’t been identified by nongovernmental groups or others or otherwise made themselves known to the authorities and are not receiving the special protection and care to which they are entitled under Greek and international law.

Anthi Karangeli, the director of RIS, confirmed that the lack of dedicated space on the island for age-disputed cases is problematic. “We can provide them with special treatment to the extent that space allows us,” she said.

“Samil,” from Afghanistan, said he was 14 when he arrived in Lesbos. He said he spent more than nine months living with the general population in the camp. At the time of the interview in May, it had been a month since he had been transferred, along with his 19-year-old brother, to the section for unaccompanied children inside Moria. He said his real age was formally recognized by the asylum service at the end of April:

I spent nine months in the tent…and now I’ve been one month here [section for unaccompanied children]…. When we were living in the tent [with adults], every day we were living in fear because of the many fights. Intense fear. I’ve been injured on my shoulder during a fight. Our tent was in the middle and it had been broken and burned twice…. I’ve reached a point where I harmed myself three times.

Recommendations

The Greek government should:

  • Ensure that there are sufficient and suitable alternatives to detention and end the unjustified detention of unaccompanied children, which deters children from registering as such;
  • Establish suitable separate reception facilities for young adults and age-disputed cases on the Greek islands and mainland Greece, and in the meantime, ensure that there are adequate and protected places in existing facilities;
  • Train RIS officers conducting initial screening and other officials, including Frontex, the European Asylum Support Office staff, and Greek Asylum Service officers, to correctly identify unaccompanied children, trafficking victims, and children with special protection needs, and to refer them to services as warranted;
  • Ensure that qualified interpreters assist unaccompanied migrant children;
  • Provide unaccompanied children who are illiterate with verbal and age-appropriate information about their rights and entitlements in Greece as children;
  • Ensure that all age determination procedures use a multidisciplinary approach that does not rely solely on appearance or medical or dental examinations. In the limited instances in which medical tests are carried out, use non-intrusive and non-invasive examinations to the extent possible;
  • In the case of uncertainty, give children whose age is disputed the benefit of the doubt and treat them as children;
  • Treat those with age assessment pending cases before the Greek Asylum Service as children, until their case has been finally resolved;
  • Re-examine cases of anyone assessed as an adult following inadequate and summary age determination procedures and until then, treat them as children;
  • Reform Greek law to ensure that anyone contesting designation as an adult has reasonable and adequate time to provide identification documents proving their age;
  • Provide free legal assistance for unaccompanied children, including those who claim to be under 18, in all administrative and judicial proceedings;

Expedite reunification processes for older children and, on an equitable basis, work with other EU member states to effect reunification in cases where the state’s delay has meant that children reach 18 during the process.


          Royals: The Sinister Snarks        

The Inhuman royal family has faced its fair share of villains over the years—and soon they’ll face off against another clan of nobles eager to usurp our heroes and assert their own galactic sovereignty. On September 6, join writer Al Ewing and artist Kevin Libranda for a showdown between the Inhumans and the Snarks in ROYALS #7!

These baddies, the monarchical leaders of an alien reptile species, certainly shouldn’t be underestimated. And just what will go down when these two royal families clash? We caught up with writer Al Ewing to find out.

Marvel.com: The Snarks have a ruling royal family, but one that differs quite a bit from from the Inhumans’ royals. Do the two groups serve as foils for each other?

Al Ewing: They do! It was kind of an accident how it happened—I was casting about for warlike alien races in the Marvel Universe that hadn’t been used much for a while and the Snarks fit the bill. I didn’t realize until I was already well into writing the thing that from the Snarks’ point of view, their royals are on an adventure into space to gain power—kind of a mirror quest to the Inhuman Royals—so it’s actually pretty neat that they end up bumping into one another like this.

Marvel.com: What motivates the Snarks? It seems like they want to watch the world burn, but do they have any other goals or priorities that the Inhumans can use to their advantage?

Al Ewing: The Snarks are warlike, but they’re not just rampaging aliens—their wars are mostly civil wars, battles for succession to the Snark throne. The last time Marvel readers got a close look at one of these royal intrigues was back in the ‘80s when POWER PACK was on the shelves and Prince Jakar of the Zn’rx had the bright idea of stealing Power Pack’s powers to assist him and his mother in usurping the Emperor—well, that’s something that’s caught on. Fast forward to the present and a faction of Snark heirs are roaming the galaxy looking for “weapons”—useful powers they can steal. And they’ve targeted the Universal Inhumans in particular.

Marvel.com: Compared to, say Thanos or Ultron, we’d consider the Snarks lesser known villains, but they still pose quite a threat. What makes them formidable opponents?

Al Ewing: This particular crew have already stolen Kymellian “weapons” before we meet them, which means they have all the powers of Power Pack—essentially, a degree of control over the fundamental forces of the universe. So when they enter the story, they’re already capable of giving the Royals a serious fight… And that’s before they start taking Inhuman abilities.

Marvel.com: Does their reptilian physiology give them any unique advantages or disadvantages?

Al Ewing: Not so much—like human beings, they come in all manner of shapes and sizes, and even within Prince Hyinar’s retinue there are plenty of different personality types butting heads. That said, this particular bunch are especially cold-blooded—and not just literally.

Marvel.com: Would you like to mention or tease anything else?

Al Ewing: I should thank everyone who’s buying and reading the book—it’s always very much appreciated. And to tempt in the curious, I should mention that over the course of this arc, two of the Royals are going to hook up, one of them is going to be changed forever—at least if I have anything to do with it—and we’re going to learn the secret of the Skyspears, in glorious, double-page technicolor! And with the absolutely gorgeous art of Kevin Libranda to feast your eyes on, there’s never been a better time to jump on!

Enter the fray with Al Ewing and artist Kevin Libranda in ROYALS #7 on September 6!

          The Darker Side of Transformers #4        
We continue our countdown with part 4, nearly to the top 3!


So far the countdown has been:
10 - Bumblebee
9 - Whirl
8 - Mattel/IGA
7 - Age of Extinction
6 - Spotlight: Kup
5 - Exhaust

4. Unicron

Unicron has been used sparingly since Floro Dery designed him for the 1986 movie. In 20 years Unicron's appearances have been few and far between as it is hard to write unique stories around a character who devours planets. 


It was Simon Furman who penned Unicron's backstory of a Dark God locked in eternal battle with Primus which has been tweaked a little over the years. By current lore Unicron can change between realities and has devoured 20% of all known universes. 



Let's process that for a minute - Unicron has single-handedly killed a staggering number of beings both robotic and organic and everything in between. Megatron is credited with the deaths of billions but Unicron's bodycount is easily in the centillions (a number followed by 30 digits) if not higher, making him one of the most prolific killers in possibly any fiction alongside Thanos and The Anti Monitor.

Here's some perspective:

Deaths and person responsible

33   - Freddie Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street Movies)

73   - Detective John McClane (Die Hard movies)

118 - John Preston (Equilibrium Movie)

220 - John Rambo (First Blood/Rambo movies)

488 - The Joker (DC comics)

1,500+ - The Punisher (Marvel comics)

2,000,000+ - Ultron (Marvel comics)
2,300,000+ - Luke Skywalker (Star Wars: A New Hope)

2,000,000,000+ - Grand Moff Tarkin (Star Wars: A New Hope)

3,000,000,000+ - Skynet (Terminator movies)

6,000,000,000+ - Nero (Star Trek reboot movie)

61,000,000,000 - Paul Atreides (Dune)

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000+ - Unicron


That's a lot of zeroes and yet he isn't the most horrific thing in the Transformers universe...

Commentary:
  • There's a massive Marvel Kindle sale going on right now, with a great number of Marvel collections (including some very recent ones) on sales for frankly insanely low prices. As a result, those collections are dominating the Amazon Comics chart. Forty-eight of the fifty spots on this week's chart are taken by Marvel Kindle Editions. (As is the custom of this chart, those GNs available under the Kindle Unlimited plan are removed, else this chart would look quite different...)
  • Only two print titles made it through all of the clutter: Saga Volume 7 and Persepolis.

Ele tomou um pau do Kizaru, tomou um pau do Aokiji, ta tomando um sufoco gigantesco pra vencer um subordinado da Big Mom, se ele tivesse esse protagonismo todo que você fala, ele já teria partido o Cracker ao meio e neste momento estaria derrotando a Big Mom, ele fez isso? Não Moria mais forte que o Luffy? Ta de sacanagem né? Crocodile até concordo, ele era mais fraco mesmo Se você não entendeu o porque do Luffy ter derrotado o Doflamingo você leu o mangá com a bunda, sinceramente, o cara precisou usar a técnica mais poderosa dele, além de ter encarado o Doflamingo enfraquecido e ter tido a ajuda do país pra poder usar o G4 de novo Esse "cunho artístico" de Hunter é na verdade babação de ovo. Eu já li Hunter, já vi o anime, curto pra caralho e não tem porque de tanta pagação de pau.

          FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2013        

Where were you last Saturday?

Hopefully, you were like me. Out buying comic books. And getting even more of them for FREE. Yes, in case you still haven't gotten on board yet, the first Saturday in May is always Free Comic Book Day. It's an opportunity to pick up new stories you haven't read, old favorites you've missed over the years, or to discover a whole new world of geeky goodness. 

This year I spent FCBD here in Los Angeles visiting four of my favorite comic retail outlets:

1. House of Secrets
2. Emerald Knights
3. Golden Apple
4. Meltdown 

Much fun was had seeing the crowds, chatting with fans and fellow geeks, and getting tons of... well... free comics. (Okay, I might picked up some no-so-free ones, too, but that's my sickness.) Pictured above are fans dressed as what would be the COOLEST Avengers line-up EVER. Because it also has Superman and Robin! Can you imagine the possibilities? Iron Man and Superman on the same time? Oh, Marvel and DC... put away your differences for once and let me write this fabulous, epic one-shot. Oh, and for a villainous threat, how about a "cosmic"version of The Joker who becomes possessed by the eternal soul of Thanos, then decides to destroy the universe just to see what happens? Now that's chaos. Yeah, I'm down for that.  As long as Vixen and Storm can also join the fun, because this team needs a bit of diversity, folks.

OKAY. I'M DONE FANTASIZING FOR THE MOMENT.



As you can see from the pictures above (Meltdown, top, and Golden Apple, bottom), tons of comic book enthusiasts turned out this year. Every shop I visited was packed! I don't know the numbers, but it sure seemed to me like this was the biggest turnout for FCBD yet, at least here in Los Angeles.

Can't. Wait. Until. Next Year!

          Newcomer to play Star Lord’s Dad        
In an effort to increase local casting efforts for its 8-year slate of Atlanta-based production, Marvel Films has cast newcomer Tony Grillo as “The Purple Man” in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. In a surprising announcement this week, director James Gunn confirmed that the classic villain will in fact be revealed as Star Lord’s long lost father. The sequel, tentatively titled Guardians 2: Rise of The Purple Man, reportedly opens with the wedding of Peter Quill (the identity of the bride remains a mystery). When Star Lord’s evil deadbeat dad crashes the wedding with a warning to all mankind, it sets into motion the plot that sends the Guardians across the galaxy in a race against time. In the months since news broke that Star Lord’s father would not, in fact, be J’son of Spartaxx (Emperor of the galaxy) as in the Comic Book storyline, speculation has run rampant as to which famous Marvel Character would take his place. Many had hoped it would be Galactus, Eater of Worlds, or Thanos, father of Gamora, the Guardians’ titular green warrior (Zoe Saldana). Marvel’s announcement that The Purple Man would fill the patronly void had fan sites everywhere alive with negative comments. Upon news that the pivotal role would go to Grillo, an Atlanta-based […]

          Manic Hostess Monday--What's Really Happening To The Bees!!        
You know who had the weirdest Hostess ads?

Captain Marvel had the weirdest damned Hostess ads:

"A family of outer space killer bees." Really.





So that's why the bees are dying off--Mar-Vell filled them with snack cakes, so they all died of malnutrition!!

You know, keeping the royal family here on Earth strikes me as a really poor idea. What if they breed? What if Swarm gets a hold of them??

Anyway, Marvel's other Hostess foes included...

...a "giant flea-market-eating flea."

And:

...a huge disembodied mouth.

WHAT THE HELL, MARVEL???!

Then again, you wanted Mar-Vell to thwart Thanos with cupcakes?

Also, Captain Marvel also has the unique distinction of being the only hero to face the villain who would eventually kill in "real life" in a Hostess ad:

I think Nitro wins in the long run, Mar-Vell...

Time Management and Process

(or How The @#$% Do I Write So Many Books?) 


One of the most frequently asked questions I get on Twitter and at conventions is how I
manage my workload? I've been meaning to write a newsletter about this for a while but,
ironically, I've been too busy. So, sorry for the delay. Anyway, I'll do my best here to explain
my weekly work schedule and my working methods for both writing and for drawing.

I am currently writing about 7 or 8 monthly books and drawing one as well
(right now I'm finishing up art for the graphic novel AD: AFTER DEATH,
written by Scott Snyder, an exclusive page from which is featured above
!).
The first thing I would say is that I am probably doing too much stuff right now.
But, when you love to do what you do, it's hard to stop, and hard to say no to
new opportunities to work with artist and characters that inspire you.

So, how do I do as much as I do? First, I've always been a very organized and
self-motivated person and had a great work ethic.  Before making a living in comics
I worked as a line cook at a variety of restaurants in downtown Toronto. Being a line
cook isn't about knowing how to cook, it's about knowing how to stay organized and
how to manage your time and do a lot of things at once. Furthermore, when I was
working nights in these restaurants I was also trying to make comics, so I would
wake up early and draw all day before going back to restaurant for my next shift.
I had a window of 5-6 hours a day to do comics and I maximized that and took full
advantage of it. I think I carried a lot of the mindset from those early days into my
work as a cartoonist and writer now.

Secondly, I love making comics, It's all I've ever wanted to do. So, basically
I have no social life at all. Really. I don't want one. The older I get the more
I just want to do what makes me happy. And the two things that make me the
most happy are making comics and spending time with my wife and son.
So that's basically ALL I do. And I'm happier for it.

Having said that, love alone does't get the work done on time, so I do employ a
pretty strict system in order to juggle everything...

I work Monday to Friday at my studio from about 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
(pics of my studio here. Notice my origibal art collection on the walls. Constant inspiration).





I also work an hour or two every night after my son goes to bed and a few hours
here and there on the weekends when he's busy reading or Legoing. In that time
I can draw about 5 pages a week and also complete one script. At this pace I can
write 4 scripts a month and draw and paint aprox- 24-pages of comics.

And the bulk of my Mon-Fri studio time is spent drawing. Drawing is WAY more
labor intensive than writing. I spend at least 40 hours a week drawing and probably
only 10 or so writing.

I can do thumbnails and pencils for 5 pages in about 2 days, I can then ink those
same 5 pages in 2 days. And the 5th day is spent painting those pages or working
on a script. This allows me to draw the equivalent of a monthly book in about 4 weeks.

In term of my drawing method, I work in 5 page batches at a time. I draw my initial
layouts for these 5 pages on layout paper with red prismacolored pencils. Then I
 tighten these up with graphite or lead pencil and tape these pages to watercolor
paper where I ink them using a lightbox. (Here of my drawing set up...)



I ink using Pelikan Black India ink with a Deleter metal dip  pen nib and a
#2 Windsor Newton Sable  brush.



When the inks dry I watercolour right over the inks and then scan it all in.
(Layout and ink stages are shown here on a page from AD: AFTER DEATH)




As I said, I spend much less time writing than I do drawing. In terms of writing,
I stagger my titles. Meaning I get a few months ahead on a book, then put it aside
 for a few months and replace it in my schedule with another title. So, while it may
seem I have 7 or 8 books coming out every month, I'm really ever only writing 3 or 4
a month.

For example, I am currently 5 months ahead on Moon Knight, 3 Months ahead on
Thanos, 6 months ahead on Descender and 6 months ahead on Black Hammer.

So for the next two/three months I can put those 4 titles aside and work on Old Man Logan,
X-Men, Inhumans v X-men and Bloodshot. And soon I'll be ahead on these 4 books
so I'll flip back to the other four titles for a while.

Each week I only focus on one book at a time, and that's all I think about until I've
exhausted all my ideas and energy for that title. So this week I'm working on a new two-part
Old Man Logan story and its running through my head constantly. I get in my Logan
frame of mind and pour everything into that, then put it aside and come back to it in a
month or two when I've recharged on that character and story. If anything, I feel having
multiple titles to jump between like this help keep me fresh and excited rather than
burning me out.

This is a shot of my trusty white board. You can see I have one script to write each
week of the month. And I plan ahead for what's coming in the next two months.
On the right is the list of all the current titles I'm working on.
(And beside that a carefully edited teaser for a couple of future!)



The scripts themselves are fairly quick to write once you have the plots done.
Plotting can take longer, but I usually plot out an entire story arc page-by-page and get
these approved by my editors far in advance, so that when it comes to the actual scripts,
I can easily manage a script a week in my "extra time" on weekends and at night.

I also keep a notebook for each project I'm working on by my drawing desk so I can
write down new ideas as they come to me and later work these into detailed Bibles
I keep for each series with all my issue by issue plots and future story ideas.



It's hard to go into detail on my writing process, because so much of it is intuitive.
But I do write full scripts, and try to keep the art direction to the bare minimum.
I want each artists to have as much freedom as possible so that they can inject
as much of themselves into as possible and do their best work without feeling restricted.

Here is a page from a recent OLD MAN LOGAN SCRIPT for Andrea Sorrentino as
well as an excerpt from the outlines for that same issue from my "Series Bible".
This is from Issue 9, which came out in early August. OF all the artists I work with,
Andrea take the most liberties with the scripts, and I love him for it. He always takes
my ideas and turns them up to 11. We've been working together for a while now on
Green Arrow and now Logan, so we have a great chemistry.

A Page from my Old Man Logan Series Bible...


A page from the corresponding Old Man Logan Script


So, I don't know how enlightening that was. I hope it helps to answer some questions
about how I juggle my work load. But really, it does come down to the fact that
I LOVE what I do. It's all I've ever dreamed of doing. I had to work a lot of shitty
jobs before I started making a living in comics and there isn't a day I don't feel
lucky as hell that I get to wake up and just make comics. So I try not to take that
for granted and I do as much as I can every day.

Having said that, I have probably exceeded my maximum lately. So, as this year
winds down, I'll probably start scaling my workload down to writing about 3-4 books
a month plus one that I write and draw, instead of the 6-7 (or 8!)
I've been doing for he last couple of years.

Just last week, Joe and Anthony Russo shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for Avengers: Infinity War, giving us our first look (sort of) at Thanos’ return. But Jon Watts isn’t about to let the Russos get away with stealing the superhero spotlight — in response, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming has offered up a new set video that shows off Tom Holland’s breakdancing skills, complete with mo-cap Spidey action.

          Jill-Christine Wiley to Lead National Tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, Full Cast        

NETworks Presentations announces casting for a brand new production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC as part of a North American tour. For more information, please visit www.TheSoundOfMusicOnTour.com.

JILL-CHRISTINE WILEY will play Maria Rainer, with MIKE MCLEAN as Captain Georg von Trapp, LAUREN KIDWELL as The Mother Abbess, Jake Mills as Max Detweiler, Melissa McKamie as Elsa Schraeder, KESLIE WARD as Liesl and CHAD P. CAMPBELL as Rolf Gruber. The von Trapp children are played by LANDON BRIMACOMBE (Friedrich), Arick Brooks (Kurt), Katie Grgecic (Brigitta), MADELEINE GUILBOT (Gretl), Maya Karp (Louisa) and AMARYLLIS C. MILLER (Marta).

Completing the cast is Caleb Adams, Colten Blair, Sarah Brackett, Jeff Brooks, Randy Charleville, Mackenzie Dade, Danielle Guilbot, Stephanie Gray, Danielle Lee James, Allison Macri, Nicholas Newman, Adam Ross, Isaac Ryckeghem, Thanos Skouteris, Christina Tompkins, Ariana Valdes and Melissa Weyn.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by The Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. The beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning Best Score, including "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss" and the title song.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as a live television production when "The Sound of Music Live!" aired on NBC in December, 2013 and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.

Ted Chapin, President of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, says: "I waited for a moment when we could rediscover THE SOUND OF MUSIC as it was originally created. Because of the enormous success of the film, few were aware that it started life as a hit Broadway show-and a very big hit at that! The artists behind this production embraced what the authors wrote, looked at it all through modern eyes and, in so doing, found depth and resonance that has been recognized by critics and audiences across the country. It's like visiting an old friend but finding yourself surprised as well. It's also a reminder of why this show is such an evergreen."

The creative team for this new production includes direction by Matt Lenz, based on the national tour's original direction by three-time Tony Award® winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Coast of Utopia). Original choreography by Danny Mefford (Dear Evan Hansen, Fun Home, The Bridges of Madison County) has been recreated by Jonathan Warren, with music supervision by Andy Einhorn (Hello, Dolly!, Bullets Over Broadway, Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, The Light in the Piazza). The design and production team is comprised of Tony Award® nominee Douglas W. Schmidt, set design (The Front Page, 42nd Street, Into the Woods); Tony Award® winner Jane Greenwood, costume design (The Little Foxes, 2014 Special Tony Award® for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre), six-time Tony Award® winner Natasha Katz, lighting design (Long Day's Journey Into Night, An American in Paris, Once, Aida, The Coast of Utopia, The Glass Menagerie) and Shannon Slaton, sound design (Present Laughter, The Humans). Casting is by Stewart/Whitley.

          Randy Newman Weighs in on Putin, Science vs. Religion and More in New 'Dark Matter' Album        

Direct link to article... [littlegreenfootballs.com]

His conclusion about Putin’s public braggadocio: “I think he also wants to be Tom Cruise. He wants to be like a movie star — a superhero, a strongman.

“There are videos of him throwing bigger young men around,” Newman said. “It interested me, but it also worried me. It’s an oddly baby-ish sort of behavior…. And this was before I knew there was going to be this giant baby — this giant, evil baby — running our country.”

So yes, as that statement would imply, Newman has written a song about Trump. But he has chosen to keep the full tune to himself, at least for now. As he’s stated in a number of other interviews, he chose fairly vulgar language to capture the defining persona of someone he considers to be a vulgar public figure, as his song draws particular attention to the president’s private parts.

“I just didn’t want to add to the problem of how ugly the conversation we’re all having is,” he recently told the U.K.’s the Guardian.

          The Environmental Impact of the Data-Center Industry        

Direct link to article... [littlegreenfootballs.com]

The impact of data centers—really, of computation in general—isn’t something that really galvanizes the public, partly because that impact typically happens at a remove from everyday life. The average amount of power to charge a phone or a laptop is negligible, but the amount of power required to stream a video or use an app on either device invokes services from data centers distributed across the globe, each of which uses energy to perform various processes that travel through the network to the device. One study (weirdly enough, sponsored by the American Coal Association, its purpose to enthuse about how great coal is for technology) estimated that a smartphone streaming an hour of video on a weekly basis uses more power annually than a new refrigerator.

Both Cook and Cantrell argued that if the energy used by a computational process is renewable, the energy consumed by that process isn’t that big of a deal. And shaming consumers for their Netflix binges doesn’t exactly mobilize a base, and at the end of the day companies have a lot more agency to make technology choices that could lessen their environmental impact. Still, it seems weird that most people—most engineers building the platforms people use every day, even—lack the basic comprehension that different online activities have different energy impacts, or that an individual’s online activities have energy impact at all beyond a laptop’s battery life.

          Comienza de forma oficial el rodaje de Avengers Untitled        
El rodaje de la cuarta entrega de Los Vengadores, prácticamente, comenzó a finales de julio. Sin embargo, la fotografía principal ha dado comienzo oficialmente hoy. Sus directores, los hermanos Russo, lo han anunciado en Instagram y Facebook con la imagen de un guante mostrando cuatro dedos junto a la frase Beginning the end -comenzando el final -, ya que será la película que pondrá fin a la Fase 3 del Marvel Cinematic Universe, tras la cual las cosas van a ser muy diferentes, según anunciaron.


A la película se la conoce provisionalmente como Avengers Untitled, ya que su título se desconoce; y, según Kevin Feige, presidente de Marvel Studios y productor de la película, no se sabrá hasta que se la tercera entrega, Avengers: Infinity War, se estrene, ya que su título es un gran spoiler con respecto a esta, según él. De momento, los únicos miembros del reparto confirmados son Jos Brolin (Thanos), Evangeline Lilly (Avispa) -que confirmó su participación hace tiempo -, y Jeremy Renner (Haweye) -que confirmó su participación más recientemente -. La película tiene previsto estrenarse en EEUU y España el 3 de mayo de 2019.

          Silver Surfer - Requiem - 4 de 4 - Completo (Español)        
Silver Surfer era originalmente Norrin Radd, un joven astrónomo del planeta Zenn-la, planeta donde se inculcaba el pacifismo. Él aceptó servir a Galactus, el devorador de planetas, para evitar que éste se alimentara de su planeta y así mismo poder conducir a Galactus a planetas donde no hubiese vidas para que pudiese devorarlos. Galactus le concedió poderes cósmicos, un aspecto plateado y una tabla de surf como vehículo (una apariencia que Radd soñaba desde niño). Silver Surfer vagó por el universo buscando planetas deshabitados pero con suficiente energía como para alimentar a Galactus, lo cual le resultó extremadamente difícil, por lo que empezó a ofrecerle planetas con vida poco desarrollada, pero tenía remordimientos por ello. Galactus le manipuló telepáticamente para que no tuviera esos remordimientos y Silver Surfer comenzó a ofrecerle toda clase de planetas. Entre éstos, encontró la Tierra.
Una vez en la Tierra, Silver Surfer recordó cuál era su objetivo y se dio cuenta de que había sido utilizado por Galactus como una marioneta sin voluntad. Más tarde, Galactus, enfurecido porque Silver Surfer lo traicionó protegiendo la tierra (porque Los Cuatro Fantásticos lo convencieron de que no le entregara el planeta a Galactus) algo que se pudo ver en el segundo filme de los Cuatro Fantasticos "y Silver Surfer" interpretado por el camaleonico, Doug Jones (casi siempre para personajes con cuerpos muy estilizados, altos o de musculatura muy fibrosa, cabe aclarar de que Jones tambien es contorsionista) siendo que en el filme no habia postizos ni arreglos en su cuerpo, "claro esta sin contar el cg plateado", otros ejemplos de papeles del estilo interpretados por Jones, son Abe sapiens en ambas Hellboy de Guillermo Del Toro, y el Fauno, en El Laberinto Del Fauno, tambien de Del Toro, entre otras de sus "mil caras". Luego de este acto del que hablabamos Galactus lo condenó a quedarse en la Tierra para siempre. Silver Surfer intentó romper la barrera de Galactus en vano. Durante el tiempo en que Silver Surfer duró en la Tierra aprendió a amar la vida en todas sus formas. Más adelante Silver Surfer llegó a salir de la Tierra con la ayuda de Los Cuatro Fantásticos sólo para saber que Galactus, cobrando venganza por haberlo traicionado, había destruido su planeta. Llevando una pesada carga en su corazón, desde entonces vaga libremente como el protector del universo. De nuevo volando por los confines del espacio conoció a Nova, la nueva heraldo de Galactus con quien inició una relación sentimental. Más tarde, cuando los Primigenios del Universo se aliaron contra Galactus, Silver Surfer recibió la ayuda de Mantis, la Maddona Celestial, juntos se enfrentaron al complot de los Primigenios que les llevó a apoderarse de las Gemas del Infinito.
Cuando Thanos resucitó se convirtió en un peligroso oponente para Silver Surfer, hasta que consiguió reunir las seis Gemas del Infinito y proclamarse amo del universo durante la crisis conocida como el Gauntlet del Infinito. Silver Surfer vio cómo sus poderes eran insuficientes para combatir al Titán Loco y fue gracias a la reaparición de Adam Warlock que Thanos pudo ser derrotado. Más tarde, al descubrir que el nuevo heraldo de Galactus era el demente Morg, Silver Surfer se aliaría con el resto de los antiguos heraldos para hacerle frente. Morg fue derrotado, no sin que antes consiguiera matar a Nova con su hacha. Poco después descubrió la existencia de un poderoso ser llamado Tirano. Silver Surfer se alió con Ganímedes, Legado y Sota de Corazones para hacerle frente. En la serie Planet Hulk se ve que al pasar el portal que lo lleva al Planeta Saakar, debilitado por el portal le pusieron un disco de obediencia y que suprime sus poderes cosmicos para pelear contra Hulk y a los Warbound.En la batalla Silver Surfer iba acabando uno por uno a los Warbound hasta que Hiroim ataco a Silver Surfer quien bloqueo su ataque con facilidad pero solo fue una distracción para que bajara la guardia y Hulk aprovechara ese momento de descuido de Silver Surfer y atacarlo.


Silver Surfer aparecía a menudo en los capítulos de Los 4 Fantásticos, hasta que Stan Lee le dedicó una serie propia que duraría entre 1968 y 1970. Tiene un total de 18 números. Fue dibujada por John Buscema en lugar de Jack Kirby. Vive atrapado en una sociedad a la que no logra entender y turbado por sus propios dilemas filosóficos. Su mayor problema no es estar atrapado en la Tierra sino estar encarcelado en el mismo planeta que el Hombre. Esta serie imprescindible marca el comienzo de una Marvel madura.En 1998 se transmitió internacionalmente, por la cadena Fox Kids, otra serie únicamente sobre Silver Surfer y su tragedia, la cual constó de una sola temporada de 13 episodios que relataban desde su origen, hasta su batalla con Thanos en el Nexo extra-espacio/temporal. El final de esta serie proponía una continuación inmediata en una segunda temporada que nunca fue producida por problemas de presupuesto, aunque de todos modos, los libretos de ésta fueron escritos.


En esta que tenemos entre manos, en letras de J. Michael Straczynski y en lapices de Esad Ribic,como lo dice el nombre "Requiem", estamos ante la posible muerte, si "muerte" de Norrin Radd, donde con la aparicion de su amada, su planeta natal, varios pesos pesados de Marvel, y claro Galactus se cuenta el final de Silver Surfer, debido a que gracias a la informacion de su viejo amigo Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), el material plateado, que lo cubre y protege del frio espacial y el calor de las estrellas, entre otras muchas cosas, se esta deteriorando y Norrin posee tan solo un mes antes de que esto ocurra.
Por eso, hechara una ultima mirada a su planeta adoptivo La Tierra, antes de volver a su verdadero hogar: Zenn-la el planeta que salvo en el pasado y donde se encuentra su amada.

          Lovecraft - Completo (Español)        
Para hablar del gran Lovecraft necesitaríamos mas espacio. En la misma introducción por parte del director John Carpenter en esta historia, nos deja una frase que lo resume todo: Los que han escritor para este genero (Terror) todos, desde Stephen King a Clive Barker han escrito un cuento Lovecraftiano. O mejor aun hablando sobre esto antes, cuando dice: Pocos autores cuentan con la distinción de ver su nombre convertido en un adjetivo: Lovecraftiano. Por que aunque Drácula o Frankenstein son clásicos, la gente no llama a una historia “Stokeresca o Shelliana” (hablando claro de sus respectivos autores) por eso le dedicaremos mas tiempo en otra publicación, además por que esta misma historia, al leerla notaran que le hace mas tributo, ya que se adentra en la “propia historia” de Howard Phyllis Lovecraft.
Esta vez mencionaremos a los artistas en esta obra.


Hans Rodionoff , que su guión inspiro esta historia, es mas conocido por ser director y guionista de cine, de películas como Sucker: The Vampire o The Man Thing, de Marvel, y ahora también como escritor de Under The Hood (Watchmen), el falso documental sobre Hollis Manson el primer Nite Owl, y los originales Minutemen, en el documental aparecen muchos de los actores de Watchmen como Carla Gugino (Sally júpiter la primer Silk Spectre), Matt Frewer (Moloch), Stephen McHattie (Hollis Manson,el primer Nite Owl), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Comedian) y Rob La Belle (Wally Weaver).


Que se puede decir del gran Keith Ian Giffen,nacido un 30 de noviembre de 1952 en Queens, New York
Escritor y artista,Posiblemente mas conocido primero por ser ilustrador y en sus guiones para la Legion de Superheroesde 1980 a 1990., y claro por ser el padre de Lobo (junto con Roger Slifer), y del irreverente , Ambush Bug. Tambien por escribir y encargarse de la serie limitadas de Aquaman en 1989 junto al guionista Robert Loren Fleming y el artista Curt Swan todo esto para DC.
Giffen publico sus primeros trabajos como "The Sword and The Star", una serie en blanco y negro persentada en Marvel Preview, con el escritor Bill Mantlo. Luego trabajo en muchos titulos de distintos editoriales (tanto DC como Marvel y otros), incluyendo Woodgod, All Star Comics, Doctor Fate, Drax the Destroyer, Heckler, Nick Fury's Howling Commandos, Reign of the Zodiac, Suicide Squad, Trencher de Boom! Studios,T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, y Vext. Tambine es responsible de las adaptaciones en ingles de mangas como Battle Royale y Ikki Tousen, asi como creador de "I Luv Halloween" para Tokyopop. Tambien trabajo para Dark Horse de1994-95 en sus Comics Greatest World /Dark Horse Heroes , como escritor de dos series Division 13 y coautor junto a Lovern Kindzierski, de Agents of Law. Para Valiant Comics, Giffen Escribio XO-Manowar, Magnus, Robot Fighter, Punx y el numero final de Solar, Man of the Atom.
Se tomo unas largas vacaciones de la industia del comic, trabajando en storyboards para television para series animadas como The Real Ghostbusters and Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy.
El y su equipo de “justicieros” J.M. DeMatties y Kevin le agregaron su condimento personal a un titulo que ellos habian dibujado tiempo antes Marvel Comics' The Defenders. El mismo trio produjo aun mas superheroes humoristicos en las series Hero Squared para Boom! Studios, y Planetary Brigade.
Keith Giffen tambien tuvo un rol muy importante en la serie de DC 52, que como todos saben fue la serie anterior a Infinite Crisis de Geoff Johns, Greg Rucka, Mark Waid y Grant Morrison) y tambien estuvo en Countdown to Final Crisis. Tambien para Marvel es el guionista principal de la saga Annihilation.tambien escribio prologos en series Oneshot como Thanos y Drax, y en Silver Surfer tambien escribio Star-Lord la miniseria para lo que seria despues Annihilation: Conquest.
Giffen aun sigue siendo muy prolifico sobre todo como creador de comic independiente,. Entre 2005 and 2007 fue autor o cocreador de comicbooks como 10, Tag y Hero Squared para Boom! Studios. Zapt! y I Luv Halloween para Tokyopop, Common Foe y Tabula Rasa para Desperado Publishing/Image Comics y Grunts para Arcana. Muchas de estas creadas con su habitual colaborador Shannon Denton.



Enrique Breccia (Buenos Aires 1945) el famoso ilustrador e historietista argentino. Es reconocido mundialmente en el ámbito del comic por obras como Alvar Mayor, El Sueñero y recientemente ilustraciones para la novela gráfica Lovecraft (esta que tenemos ahora).
Hijo del dibujante , casi una leyenda Alberto Breccia, fue influenciado por su padre desde pequeño en la pintura, el dibujo y el comic, al igual que sus hermanas, Patricia y Cristina.
Colaboró con su padre en la realización de dos obras trascendentales del género: Mort Cinder y El Eternauta. Para la primera se concentró en la labor técnica del dibujo y en la segunda en la creación de las situaciones de mayor pesadilla de la historia.
Profesionalmente, comenzó a finales de los años 1960 ilustrando novelas argentinas para la editorial Difusión.
Su primer trabajo profesional fue su colaboración en La vida del Che (1968), junto con su padre y con guión del gran Héctor Germán Oesterheld. Los originales de esta obra serían quemados más tarde debido a la situación política que atravesaba Argentina, (una dictadura militar que encontraba en esta obra ideas contrarias a las suyas).

En 1972 comenzó una colaboración de 8 años, bajo seudónimo, en la serie Spy 13 para la editorial británica Fleetway. En ese período realizó La leyenda de Thyl Ulenspiegel basada en la adaptación de Norberto Buscaglia de la obra de C. de Cóster (historia que quedó inconclusa), de donde proviene el estilo para su personaje más famoso, Alvar Mayor. Ese mismo año empezará a colaborar con ilustraciones para la revista Billiken y los libros de la Colección Billiken. En esta época trabaja para la revista italiana Linus. Ya con guiones propios realiza obras de temática bélica.
Junto a Scutti de Ediciones Récord, realiza historietas que se vendían en Italia. En 1976 en la revista Skorpio, de Ediciones Récord, publica El buen Dios con guión de Carlos Trillo. Con el mismo guionista y a partir del número 36 de 1977 de la mencionada revista, comienzan a publicar Alvar Mayor. En Récord trabajó junto a guionistas como Guillermo Saccomano, Ricardo Barreiro y Walter Slavich.
Participó en la revista Superhumor desde sus inicios, en 1980. Junto a Carlos Trillo (guión), realiza Los enigmas del PAMI.
En 1983 y para la revista D'artagnan de Editorial Columba, dibuja Ibáñez con guiones de Robin Wood.
En 1984, aparece en el mercado la revista Fierro(que despues seria legendaria). Enrique publicó en ella desde el comienzo. Allí aparecerían dos historias reconocidas de él, El cazador del tiempo, y en 1985, El Sueñero. Otras obras de ésta etapa son Metro-Carguero, con guiones de Enrique y dibujos de Cacho Mandrafina; y El reino azul, dónde dibuja, en color, los guiones de Carlos Trillo.
Su debut en Estados Unidos fue con X-Force para Marvel en 2000, la tapa de Uncanny X-Men, Legion Worlds y Batman: Gotham Knights para DC . Por encargo del editor Karen Berger realizó las ilustraciones de la novela gráfica Lovecraft en 2007.

AVENGERS: RAGE OF ULTRON


It was another glorious victory for the Mighty Avengers. Good triumphed over evil and Ultron was shot into space, never to be seen again. Or so they thought. Now, years later, the homicidal artificial intelligence — so long devoted to ending life on Earth — has found a new world to conquer…one with its own horrific legacy. When Titan, birthplace of Thanos, falls, Planet Ultron rises in its place! Thanos’ brother Starfox must seek the aid of his former allies — but the Avengers he finds are radically different from the ones he once knew. Among them is Ultron’s creator Giant-Man — and when Hank Pym confronts his now planet-sized “son,” the responsibilities of fatherhood have never loomed so large.

          Review "The Avengers: Age of Ultron"        
Holy cow! I'm actually blogging! In fact, I may blog several times this month as there are at least two other movies coming out and another currently playing on my Must See list and I am determined to see at least two. But that's another post.

So today marked several significant things for your Uncle P.  It was the first movie I've seen in a theater since Christmas; it was the first 'Tentpole' movie of the season; it was the next Marvel movie in an increasingly interconnected series unlike anything that's ever been attempted before and (most importantly) it was the first time that J and I went to the movies together. I love that while J doesn't quite share my enthusiasm for movies, he likes that I have that enthusiasm. The last movie he'd seen in a theater was a Harry Potter movie and he had never seen a 3D movie (poor, sheltered thing - LOL - I love you, Honey!) so it was more than just out first movie together for him, too (yes, we're saving our ticket stubs - we're mushy that way!).

Sorry... You want to know what I thought of the movie. Or, at least I hope you do. Any way...

When we last saw The Avengers as a team, they were eating schwarma after defeating Loki and the alien invaders, much to the chagrin of first-glimpsed villain, Thanos. The Avengers now operate as an independent team under the direction of Steve "Captain America" Rogers (Chris Evans) and we join them in the midst of an assault on a HYRDA compound in Eastern Europe to recover Loki's scepter. Once recovered, Tony "Iron Man" Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) asks to study the sceptor for 3 days before Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returns it to Asgaard. When Stark's computer, Jarvis (Paul Bettany) studies the staff, it discovers the gem inside (one of the 'Infinity Stones' which have featured in several of the films) houses an artificial intelligence. Seeing this as an opportunity to create a sentry for humanity, Stark and and Bruce "Hulk" Banner (Mark Ruffalo) attempt to interface Jarvis and the AI to create what is intended to be a world-wide guardian named Ultron* (James Spader). Of course, as in any good Frankenstein story, a monster arises, instead.

Thankfully, Age of Ultron manages to just barely avoid the Marvel plot formulas that were becoming a little too familiar and this time around we get to learn more about the humans inside the Superheros, particularly Clint "Hawkeye" Barton (Jeremy Renner) and a seemingly impossible romance for Banner and Natasha "Black Widow" Romanov (Scarlett Johansson). There is plenty of the usual Marvel action and banter, with lots of tension-relieving jokes and one-liners in between the grand-scale destruction and over-the-top action sequences (a very funny scene about them all trying to lift Mjölnir turns into an important plot point later on). We are also introduced (I won't say how or when) to the character Vision (Bettany) and a pair of 'enhanced' twins (Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver** and Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch). Add appearances from Marvel regulars Idris Elba; Hayley Atwell; Don Cheadle; Cobie Smulders; Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson and you have a very entertaining movie, indeed. But I must give a special nod to Spader's voice performance, which is dead-on. I knew but had forgotten that Spader was cast, and both J and I were going crazy trying to figure out whose voice it was, because his smarmy inflections and turns of phrase were so very familiar. When the credits rolled we both said "D'oh!"

Yes, we both very much enjoyed the movie, though I thought the 3D was completely unnecessary. It honestly did nothing to enhance the movie and at the end of the 141 minute run-time, my eyes were very tired and J had a headache (he said, "I don't ever need to see another 3D movie, Honey"). Truth be told, I liked the first Avengers movie much better. Writer/Director Joss Whedon obviously has a vision for the franchise and I expect the next film in the series (Infinity Wars) will be the Empire Strikes Back of the series.  *** 1/2 (Three and a Half Stars). 



The Avengers: Age of Ultron is rated PG-13 for "intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence and destruction, and for some suggestive comments." 

*In the original comics, Ultron was invented by Hank Pym, the original "Ant-Man." One of the trailers we saw before the movie was for Marvel's next 'Phase Two' movie Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd ("Oh, Paul!") and Michael Douglas as... Hank Pym!

**We previously saw a very different version of Quicksilver as played by Evan Peters in X-Men: Days of Future Past, apparently the result of multiple studios owning various rights to the character, though Taylor-Johnson's version remains truer to the comics.

Well, this was fun. I'm pretty sure you'll hear from me again this month!

More, anon.

          D23 Expo: "Disney, Marvel Studios & Lucasfilm--Live Action at the Walt Disney Studios"        

jeaninebanner.jpg

Expo time has arrived! That once-every-two-year weekend where D23 throws a huge celebration of all things Disney for just you and around 65,000 of your closest friends. I attended all Expo weekend and will be reporting back on the highlights.

One of the major events of the second day was the Walt Disney Studios panel "Disney, Marvel Studios & Lucasfilm--Live action at The Walt Disney Studios," in which Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn and his special guests presented some of the many live-action projects currently in the works for all the affiliated Disney studios.

Back from the Animation panel the day before, Alan Horn introduced the Disney studio trifecta of Walt Disney Studios, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm, and noted that as diverse as they all are, they are bound together by common qualities of integrity and decency. They are apparently also bound together by phenomenal popularity, as five of the top grossing films of 2016 were all Disney: "Finding Dory," "Captain America: Civil War," "Zootopia," "Rogue One," and "Jungle Book."

[All photos and video provided by Disney.]

535978471%2C29E867F4CB12E4A216F.jpe

Starting off with the Walt Disney Studios, Horn introduced Sean Bailey, President of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production, to talk about their upcoming slate of movies.

535977462%2C88A4779FDF79503B98B.jpe

First up was "Wrinkle in Time," an adaptation of the classic Madeleine L’Engle book. Director Ava DuVernay, as well as stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and Storm Reid took the stage to introduce the teaser trailer.

535977001%2C1923466ECB5038AAC3F.jpe

Meg Murray, a young daughter of two renowned physicists, must embark on a fabulous journey aided by three celestial guides, her classmate, and her younger brother to locate and rescue her missing father and battle a powerful evil. “A Wrinkle in Time” opens nationwide March 9, 2018.

Next was “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.” Directed by Lasse Hallström and starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Mackenzie Foy as Clara, Helen Mirren as Mother Ginger, Morgan Freeman as godfather Drosselmeyer, and famed ballet dancer Misty Copeland, it is a fanciful retelling of the E.T.A. Hoffmann tale. With an as-yet-unreleased trailer that seemed reminiscent of Tim Burton's hugely popular "Alice in Wonderland," "Nutcracker" sees protagonist Clara venturing through the lands of Snowflakes, Flowers, Sweets, and the less-benign-sounding Fourth Realm, where she must face the tyrannical Mother Ginger and a gang of mice. The CGI Mouse King movements are based on that of dancer Lil Buck, who gave a live performance of "jooking," his style of street dancing.

"Nutcracker" will open in U.S. theaters on November 2, 2018.

535977396%2CD22DF5B71B23A0E0EA8.jpe

Director Rob Marshall and star Emily Blunt then took the stage to talk about "Mary Poppins Returns."

535977355%2CE78AFD288A33DFBCD38.jpe

A musical sequel to the original movie, "Returns" sees Blunt's Poppins revisit a grown Jane and Michael Banks with her friend Jack, a street lamplighter played by Lin-Manuel Miranda, in order to restore childhood joy and wonder to their lives. Also joining her is Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks, Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks, Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen, Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary’s William Weatherall Wilkins, Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin Topsy, Angela Lansbury as the Balloon Lady, and Dick Van Dyke as Mr. Dawes Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.

MaryPoppinsReturns58b9cabb3650a.jpg

--Blunt noted that her take on Mary Poppins is a little closer to the character from the book than Julie Andrews' and is more "acerbic and weird."
--Julie Andrews is not in the film, in part because she felt she would detract too much from what should be Blunt's movie.
--One of the tables from the original movie was lent to the production from Club 33, where it is usually in residence.
--Marshall stated that Dick Van Dyke felt the production and the set had the same sense of joy as the original.

The audience was treated to a first look at the film, accompanied by a live orchestra performing original new music from the score conducted by composer Marc Shaiman

535977366%2CE4A003F703DB7177926.jpe

The clips we saw looked very good--I have been a little wary of how the remake of such a classic will turn out, but the iconic Mary Poppins imagery/shots were done well and continue to be markedly evocative. The fact that we were watching it with live orchestration didn't hurt it any, either.

“Mary Poppins Returns” will be released in U.S. theaters on Dec. 25, 2018.

Afterwards, Bailey confirmed three more live-action remakes: "Aladdin," directed by Guy Ritchie with Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie; "Mulan," directed by Niki Caro; and "Jungle Cruise," starring Dwayne Johnson.

535977338%2CE35E433D56D61F19D60.jpe

Tim Burton, still in London working on the live-action "Dumbo," sent a video greeting.

Dumbo596d416300e9a.jpg

The film stars Colin Farrell, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, and Colette Marchant. “Dumbo” is slated for release on March 29, 2019.

Finally, Jon Favreau gave the audience a first glimpse at the opening Pride Rock sequence in his live-action/CGI remake of "The Lion King."

535977300%2C06E370E80C342927F4C.jpe

With Donald Glover as Simba, and James Earl Jones as Mufasa, “The Lion King” is slated for theaters on July 19, 2019.

Horn then came back on to introduce the Lucasfilm segment by introducing "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" writer/director Rian Johnson, and giving spoilers for anyone who hadn't seen the end of "Rogue One" yet.

TheLastJedi596d51e76d2a4.JPG

Johnson started off proving his Disney cred by reminding everyone he used to direct the "You're Watching Disney Channel" commercials.

"This wasn't 'High School Musical' Disney Channel--this was 'Halloweentown' Disney Channel. But we're not here to talk about Halloweentown..."
[Huge audience reaction]
"This might be the only crowd where it's a let down to not talk about Halloweentown."

Subsequently, cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro joined Johnson on stage to talk about "Last Jedi."

TheLastJedi596d51e271f93.JPG

[Main takeaway here was that Christie is an Amazon. The next tallest person there came up to about her chin.]

The final member of the cast then entered, which was of course, Mark Hamill.

TheLastJedi596d51edb6935.JPG

"Thank you for not making me stand next to Gwendolyn. You think I'm already a little short for a stormtrooper?"

TheLastJedi596d51e001417.JPG

Lucasfilm finished off their segment with a behind-the-scenes video in which the late Carrie Fisher figured prominently. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" picks up where "Force Awakens" ends, and will open in U.S. theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.

Finally, Marvel Studios was up at bat, with President/producer Kevin Feige announcing their first ten year anniversary celebration.

535978231%2C852A237FB0E4B65F1D1.jpe

The cornerstone of the celebration will be "Avengers: Infinity War," which will have virtually every Marvel Cinematic Universe character in it. At this point, Josh Brolin (Thanos) appeared to help usher in an enormous amount of cast members on stage, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan and Pom Klementieff.

InfinityWar596d51392e905.JPG

Co-director Joe Russo closed out the presentation by introducing a video with appearances by every character in "Infinity War." While largely old footage, there were some new clips towards the end, mostly depicting the entry of the Guardians of the Galaxy into the larger MCU story-line. It was a LOT of characters.


[This is not that video, which has yet to be released, but an earlier one talking about the start of production on "Infinity War."

Clearly, it is going to be quite a showdown. “Avengers: Infinity War” releases in U.S. theaters on May 4, 2018.

          Video of the Week: A Little Bit of ThanosBoSs in Each of Us        

An old rule of thumb for poker players is “keep your hands off casino games."

Pit games have been the downfall of many a poker pro over the years and will continue to be until the sun itself burns out.

While 2016 WSOP Main Event champion Qui Nguyen prefers the Baccarat tables, others can’t resist taking a spin on the dangerous Blackjack tables.

In our video of the week one of these players sits down with $19,000 in front of him and you can guess what happens.

Off He Goes with $19,000

The online nickname of the player in question is ThanosBoSs and he’s just logged in to a Live Casino on his Twitch.tv stream.

In this casino he's playing online but still has a live dealer dealing the cards.

ThanosBoSs brings a bankroll that many players need a lifetime to build. He has $19,000 to play with and off he goes.

In a Poker Game You'd Call It Tilt

live online blackjack

Basically it all goes downhill from the start although it doesn’t look like it at first. ThanosBoSs gets dealt a solid 20 while the bank has a miserable 3, which often leads it to a low hand or a bust.

Eventually, though, the money moves over to the bank and it looks like our hero is unable to recover from this blow.

In a poker game you’d say the guy went on tilt. And although he does manage to get some of his money back temporarily, his downfall is no stranger to poker players.

He tries to win his money back before he stops. The game ends not with a whimper but with a bang and we can all relate to it because there is a little bit of ThanosBoSs in each and every one of us.

Enjoy a little virtual foray into the world of Blackjack - and remember to stick to poker.

          O sábado épico da San Diego Comic Con 2017        


O penúltimo dia da San Diego Comic Con mostrou bem porque foi o dia mais aguardado e mais concorrido entre o público. Painéis com Spielberg apresentando o filme Jogador Número 1, Blade Runner 2049, Séries da CW, Stranger Things, Westworld, além de DC e Marvel, cativaram o público presente e enlouqueceram os fãs nas redes sociais, com posters e trailers inéditos.

Steven Spielberg deu o ar da graça na SDCC para divulgar seu próximo filme, Jogador Número Um (Ready Player One). A história adaptada do romance homônimo de Ernest Cline se passa no ano de 2044 e segue Wade Watts, um jovem que, assim como a maioria das pessoas de seu mundo, escapa da realidade em uma utopia virtual chamada Oasis e sonha em encontrar os tesouros escondidos ali. Jogador Número Um tem estreia prevista para 5 de abril de 2018




A Netflix apresentou o trailer oficial da segunda temporada de Stranger Things. A série que tem retorno previsto para 27 de outubro mostra o desenrolar dos fatos cerca de um ano depois dos acontecimentos da primeira temporada.




Westworld, a série original da HBO que pode ser o alento dos fãs de Game of Thrones em 2018 (já que rumores dão como certo de que a última temporada de GoT só virá em 2019) veio confirmando toda a qualidade apresentada na primeira temporada com altíssimas doses de violência. A série retrata um parque temático onde os visitantes podem viver fantasias com androides ultrarrealistas, até que um problema acontece com o computador central e os planos começam a sair de controle. A história é baseada no longa escrito e dirigido por Michael Crichton, Westworld – Onde Ninguém Tem Alma, de 1973 e segundo os roteiristas, também tem fortes influências do game Red Dead Redemption.




E então veio um dos painéis mais aguardados da noite, o painel de Liga da Justiça. Teve claro Gal Gadot linda e esbanjando simpatia (como na hora em que um garotinho pergunta sobre o status do Superman durante o filme da Liga - ao que Jason Momoa responde com a sutileza de um rinoceronte na loja de cristais - "Se você assistiu ao último filme, sabe que ele está morto!" - Gal suaviza a situação com um marcante "Os fãs de Superman ficarão muito felizes com esse filme"), Ezra Miller mitando com o cosplay de Ed Elric de Fullmetal Alchemist, Ray Fisher com a camiseta I Love Zack Snyder e um tranquilíssimo Ben Affleck, que negou os rumores de que esteja deixando o papel do Homem Morcego.

O trailer da liga traz reflexos óbvios do sucesso de Mulher Maravilha, dando mais destaque à Diana Prince do que no trailer anterior. As cores mais vivas também se aproximam muito mais do file solo da heroína do que de Batman vs Superman e o posto de alívio cômico do Barry Allen vivido por Ezra se mostra consolidado (e pqp, que Flash maravilhoso esse menino nos entrega nos trailers). Vemos também as primeiras aparições de Steppenwolf, o Lobo da Estepe, vilão interpretado por Ciarán Hinds (o Mance Rayder de Game of Thrones), que vem à terra em busca das caixas maternas.

"Eles não tem proteção. Eles não tem lanternas"
Essa frase me causou arrepios que só foram superados pelo anúncio de que o filme do Flash será baseado na história de Flashpoint Paradox (No Brasil "Ponto de Ignição) uma das melhores animações que a DC já produziu para a liga. Mas voltando à frase acima, ela marca a primeira menção oficial aos Lanternas Verdes no atual universo da DC, jogando uma pá de cal no Hal Jordan vivido por Ryan Reynolds anos atrás. Liga da justiça chega aos cinemas no dia 16 de novembro.




Com um painel curto de apenas 90 minutos, a Marvel encerrou o sábado na San Diego Comic Con, trazendo notícias importantes, como a presença dos Scrulls no filme da Capitã Marvel, artes conceituais que apresentaram o uniforme da heroína e a posição do filme na linha do tempo do Universo Marvel; Capitã Marvel se passa antes de Homem de Ferro 1.

Sobre o filme do homem formiga tivemos o anúncio de Michelle Pfeiffer interpretando a Vespa original, Janet Van Dyne. Pantera Negra teve seu poster divulgado e o ponto alto do painel foi a exibição do primeiro trailer oficial de Thor Ragnarok. Meio Disney (colorido demais), meio Snyder (cores sem saturação e fotografia escura e sombria em cenas de Hela), o trailer nos traz muito mais de de Hulk do que de Thor propriamente dito. Até na intro em que a logo da Marvel vai do vermelho ao verde do gigante esmeralda. Thor Ragnarok estreia em 2 de novembro nos cinemas



O painel foi finalizado com o trailer de Vingadores - Guerra Infinita que a Marvel já havia exibido na D23 e que ainda não foi liberado para o público. Fica a arte mostrando a grandiosidade de Thanos pra passar a vontade .
(ah sim, vazaram 15 segundos do trailer de Guerra Infinita. Mas tá um lixo, a Disney tá caçando os links como se não houvesse amanhã e eu prefiro esperar para ver e divulgar com uma qualidade decente.)

          Video der Woche – Wie gewonnen, so zerronnen        

Finger weg von Casino-Spielen aller Art, so lautet eine alte Faustregel für Online-Pokerspieler, und doch gibt es immer wieder Leute, die an einem dieser brandgefährlichen Tische landen. In unserem Video der Woche hat ein Spieler eine hübsche Bankroll von $19.000, doch was bleibt am Ende davon übrig?

Wer, wann, wo

Wir beobachten einen Spieler namens „Thanos_Boss“, der sich live auf Twitch.tv in ein Live-Casino im Internet einloggt.

Es geht los
Es geht los

Diese Casinos unterscheiden sich vom klassischen Online-Spiel dadurch, dass die Karten nicht virtuell, sondern von einem lebenden Dealer gegeben werden. So entsteht zumindest die Illusion, alles müsste mit rechten Dingen zugehen.

Zu Beginn des Videos hat unser Freund „Thanos_Boss“ eine Bankroll, für die manch ein Hobby-Pokerspieler viele Jahre hart kämpfen musste – über $19.000.

Der sichere Sieg

Im Grunde nimmt das Verhängnis schon in der ersten Hand seinen Lauf.

Bei ihr läuft erst alles perfekt. „Thanos_Boss“ bekommt mit zwei Karten eine stabile Zwanzig, während die Bank eine schnöde Drei hat und sich damit meist entweder unter- oder überkauft.

Nächster Versuch
Nächster Versuch

Doch es kommt, wie es kommen muss, das Geld wandert am Ende doch zur Bank, und davon scheint sich unser Freund nicht mehr erholen zu können.

Tilt nennt man das in der Pokersprache, und obwohl „Thanos_Boss“ zwischendurch noch einmal einiges zurück gewinnt und wieder seine Bankroll aufbaut, scheitert er letztlich an etwas, was viele Online-Spieler aus leidvoller Erfahrung kennen: Er will wieder auf den alten Betrag zurück, und erst dann aufhören.

Am Ende ist dann unter ohrenbetäubendem Getöse fast alles weg, aber im Ernst: Steckt nicht in uns allen ein bisschen was von „Thanos_Boss“?

Viel Spaß mit unserem Blackjack-Helden!

          ShutterBlog: A Travel PhotoBlog Workshop with Ms. Jojie Alcantara!        




I WAS in college when I'm so interested in photography. But after I took up Basic Photography, I let my interest died in its natural death. :D It's a good thing Sir Avel Manansala invited me to join the ShutterBlog; it is a one-of-a-kind travel photoblog workshop for Socksargen Bloggers with our speaker (drumroll please)... Ms. Jojie Alcantra! She's a travel writer and photographer whom I am eyeing for many years...to attend one of her workshops.  I envied her shots as well as her writing skills. You can check out her works in flickr and in pbase galleries.



Below are my pictures  taken during the workshop (as expected not amazing as pro).... but that  workshop realized me one thing.... the real formula for photography is Start, Aim, Shot,  Aim, Shot...

It means that when you have your camera on, the sun does not rise in an instant, the clouds will not reflect to waters dramatically, and your subject won't appear in a perfect rule of third angle. You have to compose and look for it. You can only get the perfect picture through constant practice and shooting.




Also, congrats to Aethan Yting who won a new Samsung Camera from CameraHauz KCC and thanks to all our sponsors Gensan View Resort - our venue for the said workshop, Aromacology and to  Orman Manansala of Project O and Avel Manansala of gensantos.com, SoCCSarSKGen Bloggers


Cheers!

          Just how influenced by Star Wars was Guardians of the Galaxy?        
guardians of the galaxy star wars themed posterNow that the hype and cosmic dust of Guardians of the Galaxy has has exploded across the galaxy in the form of Vol 2, we can take the time reflect on just how good the first movie was and wonder why that might be.


Is it because it felt like Star Wars?


For this writer, it may have been the best fun he’s had at the movies since he saw Roger Rabbit or Return of the Jedi as a child so maybe there is something there.

Before we go through the Star Wars influences on Guardians, we should note the first comic form of Guardians of the Galaxy was published in 1969, some 8 years before Star Wars hit the silver screen.

So this piece of writing is about how the Star Wars films influenced the Guardians movie and is not a discussion about what came first.

To clear up any doubt about whether the influences are real or just imagined by rabid Star Wars fans, the film’s director James Gunn was quoted as saying:

“This was intentionally my version of Star Wars. When I was first considering doing the movie, the chance to make something like that was one of the things that got me on board. Not just Star Wars, but Raiders Of The Lost Ark, and other movies like that. The stuff I loved as a kid. I wanted to make a movie that made people feel the way they made me feel.”


Here's some of the express influence Star Wars had over GOTG

  • The duo of Groot and Rocket Racoon pretty much stole the movie over Star Lord. They were very funny did some cool things and they had a great personal relationship. Did you notice how Rocket translated everything Groot said for their fellow Guardians? That’s unmistakably a Han Solo and Chewbacca type friendship right there. Han spends a lot of the Star Wars films sharing what Chewie thought or responding. C3PO totally does with R2D2 so this would seem an obvious Star Wars influence on GoG.
  • While Peter Quill (Star Lord) is arguably of the Han Solo mold, Groot is effectively Rocket’s version of Chewbacca. How is Quill like Han Solo? How about his quips for every situation he’s in and his sexual tension chemistry with Gamora mirrors Solo and Leia's and he turns out to be a hero after struggling a bit. 
  • Evil Fathers. As Luke and Leia had Vader as their evil father, sisters Gamora and Nebula had the world conquering Thanos as their adopted father. 
  • There's a puppet master pulling strings. Ronan the Destroyer takes the part of Vader in this film and like Vader serving the Emperor, Ronan served Thanos. 
  • Thanos even kills an underling who annoyed him which mirrors Vader’s force choke moves.
  • George Lucas also managed to have a random influence on the post credits seen – Howard the Duck makes an amusing appearance. While Howard is a Marvel product, it was Lucas who directed the movie version. You could argue that a lot people (such as myself) would only have known who Howard was from having seen the movie (again as a child, many years ago!).
Guardians is not exactly a copy of Star Wars it certainly has been influenced by it.

This is not to say that Guardians was not influenced by other things as well. The movie has a multitude of references to icons of the 1980s such as Troll Dolls and Alyssa Milano.

Star Lord is also arguably based on Indiana Jones (which was based on a million of other things but is actually another Lucas influence). At one point Quill even makes a passing reference to the Ark from Raiders.

It's nice to see Star Wars and George Lucas having an impact on movie making in a great way - it's returning the favour after all...
