Tributes To Commemorate Stan Lee’s Life

Yesterday, on the 12th of November, one of the most famous American comic book writers and publishers, Stan Lee, passed away. Alongside other legends (Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko) he created such iconic heroes as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and many more, leaving behind a legacy that will be remembered by generations to come.

Fans all over the world are already sharing tribute art in honour of this iconic man that not only gave us joy, but also condemned bigotry and racism in his work.

This column titled “Stan’s Soapbox” from 1968 stands out even after five decades, as the issues he touched upon are still very relevant in our society.

If we ought to remember Stan Lee for anything, it should probably be those words.

Below some tribute art in honour of this legendary man:


There’s no chance he’ll be forgotten!!

OMG NO! Stan Lee Has Died

I’m still awake from my 2 hours of sleep last night, I was in zombie mode the whole day but I’m a sad zombie now because I just read that Stan Lee has die.

Stan Lee, who I thought would live until the end of eternity, is now making his way to the great big Comic-Con in the afterworld after he died today in Los Angeles.

Stan’s daughter tells TMZ that he was taken by ambulance from his home in the Hollywood Hills to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center this morning, and that’s where he died. He was 95 years old.

Stan Lee (born name: Stanley Martin Lieber) is one of the reasons why many actors can put their hands under their b-holes and fart out a $100 bill when paying for anything.

He co-created iconic comics like Spider-Man, X-Men, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Iron ManThor and pretty much many more. 

This is why I don’t believe in a “God,” when humans like him (who made millions of people happy) die while evil garbage causing chaos in our world still alive.

Stan Lee absolutely changed the world!

He was a hero and showed us that it is in fact possible for us real world humans to be super heroes. We all have the ability inside us. He didn’t create a path for us to escape life through fiction, he is one of those who showed us there exists a path in our own lives for each of us to be somebody’s superhero.


RIP, Mr. Lee.

Venom

I watched Venom today. 

Five word: Highly entertaining and highly underrated.

I do not understand all hate and bad reviews coming from the critics for this movie.

Fans who aren’t too bothered by the changing of origins, should enjoy this movie. It is weird having Venom without having the Spider-Man black suit backstory or spider powers, but the Venom character is much more like the comics than the one in Spider-Man 3.

This was a good origin movie for a character we have only seen poorly done in the horrible Spider-Man 3 movie.

The movie did flirt between being dark and funny at the same time which I believe is Disney’s fault due to Sony renting Spider-Man to them. Other than that the fight scenes were amazing, and if I understood correctly by the way they recreated the villain (the other symbiote,) it was Riot ’cause Riot is one violent bitch!

In my opinion, those not familiar with the comic were disappointed because they expected to see Venom as “the bad guy,” when the fact is, Venom’s desire for good or evil depends on his host. In this case Venom is not the villain but an anti-hero.

Also it’s starting to seem like you can’t believe critics anymore about anything.

Tom Hardy acting is a bit wooden at times, but not enough to weaken the film much. I personally would have chose another actor, a fresh new face.

Regardless, I would defiantly recommend others to see this film.

Dark Phoenix

She is fire, out of control and among the most feared beings in all of existence. And here she is, the first Dark Phoenix trailer to usher in both the beginning and end of all things. 

The Dark Phoenix Saga is one of the most important stories in X-Men history that fundamentally changed the core team’s dynamic and made readers see all of the characters, especially Jean Grey, in new shocking lights.

I seriously don’t expect a masterpiece like Days of Future Past, but this looks/has to be better than Apocalypse.

On Brand

He’s more tongue than man, now.

Venom, the upcoming movie about a monstrous symbiote bonding with a man with an impossible accent, really does seem to be nailing the vibe of the over-the-top, goth nightmare/dream of the 1980s and ‘90s.

Like, for instance, this new poster, which is just so very Venom it hurts a little.

The poster, as shared by Bloody Disgusting, is a promo for the IMAX showing of the film, which promise all the excitement of amorphous alien goo biology in all the screen real estate that you could possibly want. And also probably a bit more.

But, seriously, look at that art. The tongue alone is worthy of an entire post.

It just feels very classic Venom to me, fleshy and energetic and as creepy as it is something I could totally see myself putting on my trapper keeper when I was younger.

Whoever’s making the Venom posters seems to have it down.

Captain MEHrvel

It’s been over two years since we found out that Brie Larson would be doing what many have done before her by turning their Oscar around and whispering “You don’t need to see this” as they signed a contract for a big-budget superhero movie.

And now Brie is playing Captain Marvel in her own movie.  But she looks more like Captain Mehrvel ready for Halloween on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

I gotta be honest, I don’t like Brie. I find he boring and not believable in most of her roles.

Captain Marvel isn’t scheduled for release until March of 2019, so this will have to satisfy conformist nerds until then.

I don’t know if it’s the hair, but she looks like a basic office assistant randomly put in a latex suit. She’s meh, but make that coin, girl.

That said, I’m not excited whatsoever about this. But it’s what it is. I guess…

DeadPool 2

After the previous flop and stupid choice I made, I did me right by watching a proper film. So I watched Deadpool 2.

Just as Robert Downey, Jr. has become the definitive Iron Man, Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool. It’s the role he was born to play.

The story here is more complex though not as smoothly told when you compare it to the original and although it was funny, some jokes didn’t make it for me.

I think my biggest flaw with this film is that it seems as if they are taking the character of Wade Wilson serious but everything surrounding him is a big joke. That means that whenever Deadpool (in costume) is on screen cracking jokes, it feels like a completely different character.

Both Zazie Beetz (Domino) and Josh Brolin (Clable) steal the show whenever they are on screen, so much so that we needed way more of them.

The action is well directed, although it relies to much on CGI, and it features the best end credit scene I have ever seen. So despite the stuff I didn’t like, the movie is fun guarantee.
