About

In 1942, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is deemed too physically unfit to enlist in the U.S. Army and fight the Nazis in World War II.

With sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), he fights the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a seemingly magical object known as the Tesseract.

Toy review- Marvel Legends ‘Mr. Sinister’

from Sentry Productions

About Mr. Sinister. from Wikipedia

Writer Chris Claremont conceived Mister Sinister as a new villain for the X-Men, having felt “tired of just going back toMagneto and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and the same old same old” Claremont recalled:

“Dave Cockrum and I were over ideas and what we were coming towards was a mysterious young boy – apparently an 11-year-old – at the orphanage where Scott (Cyclops) was raised, who turned out to be the secret master of the place. In effect what we were setting up was a guy who was aging over a lifespan of roughly a thousand years. Even though he looked like an 11-year-old, he’d actually been alive since the mid-century at this point – he was actually about 50 […] He had all the grown up urges. He’s growing up in his mind but his body isn’t capable of handling it, which makes him quite cranky. And, of course, looking like an 11-year-old, who’d take him seriously in the criminal community? […] So he built himself an agent in a sense, which was Mister Sinister, that was, in effect, the rationale behind Sinister’s rather – for want of a better word – childish or kid-like appearance. The costume… the look… the face… it’s what would scare a child. Even when he was designed, he wasn’t what you’d expect in a guy like that.”

The Good, the Not-so good, and the UGH: Reviews Brightest Day #18, Green Lantern Corps #56

It’s a VERY small this week. The books I picked up this week are Brightest Day #18, Green Lantern Corps #56.

THE GOOD


Brightest Day #18– The Hawks are the main focus of this issue. Hawkman and Hawkgirl (or Hawkwoman) finished their tasks. Meanwhile Boston Brand is trying to figure why the white lantern ring is powering up. I won’t reveal the ending of the issue, but it is truly a “WTF?” moment. Eight issues left – I’m ready.

Green Lantern Corps #56– The penultimate issue of “The Weaponer” story arc. The Sinestro Corps attack the Thunders who are being protected by the Green Lanterns. Both sides are trying not to fight each other and break the truce that has been set. Meanwhile Sinestro finally appears and battles The Weaponer.

THE NOT-SO GOOD
None

THE UGH

OTHER


DC Comics Presents: Chase – I went back and picked this book up. This book reprints issues #1 and 6-8. This features the art of current artist/co-writer J. H. Williams III and written by Dan Curtis Johnson. The short-lived series focused on Cameron Chase an agent of the Department of Extranormal Operations. Not bad, you might wanna try it out. I find it curious that they reprinted this series especially when it’s four issues of ten issue series.

I wanted to pick up Young Justice #0, but my lcs didn’t have it (my fault – didn’t order it).

Don’t forget to join the next Fellowship Live on January 25 @ 8:00pm CST! A special announcement is coming!!!!
