How Does The Hulk Keep His Pants On

July 5th, 2013

Looking at the Hulk in graphic novels often depicts him with no shoes, socks or shirt but still wearing pants. Obviously the alternative to suspending the belief that his jeans stay on while his stretchy t-shirt tears and falls off would alter the rating of the comic book hero to an adults-only status. It is a necessity of common decency that has been addressed in different ways as the character has been remade over the years.

The television series with actors Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno respectively playing Dr. David (Bruce) Banner and the Hulk was Read the rest of this entry »

The Many Wars Of Wolverine Through History

February 25th, 2012

Wolverine is one of the most popular super heroes. He has been written about in comics since the early 1970′s. During his almost 40 years in comics and movies, he has had many battles.

He first appeared in an issue of the Incredible Hulk. Even though they are both “good guys”, he and the Hulk have had many battles. In the comic Wolverine: Old Man Logan, which takes place in an alternate future, Wolverine actually gets eaten by the Hulk and then uses his claws to rip out of Hulk, killing the Hulk once and for all. But that was an alternate future.

Sabretooth, who has similar powers to Wolverine, is his half-brother. However, the two have battled each other for years. The Movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine details this troubled relationship.

Wolverine is a member of the X-Men, an elite group of super heroes. As a member of the team, he has done battle with many enemies of the X-Men, like Magneto. Wolverine has many lesser known enemies like Bloodscream, Jaggernaut, Shiva and Cyber.

With super human strength, unlimited healing abilities, a skeleton coated with adamantium and adamantium claws, Wolverine is almost invincible. His many battles in comics and movies have made him legendary.

The Ancient Religion Of The Silver Samari

February 12th, 2012

There have been many fans of the Silver Samurai who have made the claim that, because he is Japanese, he is likely a devout Buddhist. Of course, this is very well possible, although there are at this time no comics available in which this character has made any kind of claim to Buddhism. He has never been seen practicing the religion, and it is for that reason that he is likely not a practicing Buddhist.

There is evidence to back the claim that the Silver Samurai’s main religious influence and moral values are similar to the ideology of Bushido, a system of beliefs and personal ethics followed by many traditional samurai of Japanese descent. Perhaps this is also why he took on the name “Silver Samurai” and even fashioned a Samurai-like costume to wear.

Since he was not really born into Samurai culture, Kenuichio Harada likely learned about the long-extinct group of people, became completely fascinated with their values and ended up adopting the creed and look of these traditional Japanese samurais as part of his persona. While the character is shrouded in mystery and no one knows the actual truth, this is the most likely scenario and is accepted by most fans.

The Many Loves Of Scott Summers

January 30th, 2012

Scott Summers, originally known as Slim Summers is the leader of the X-Men. Summers is actually a mutant cyclops with a battle visor with a single eye or lens that runs across his eyes, hence the name Cyclops. Scott Summers became the first battle recruit of professor Charles Xavier. Xavier fell in love with Summers’ intensity and hard work and knew that he would be a leader from the very first time that they met.

Scott Summers has few weaknesses, if any. If falling in love is a weakness then Scott Summers has been doomed. His career has been marked by many loves and relationships that seemed to rarely affect his leadership in the world of X-Men battles. His first love was with Jean Grey but when she died and was reborn as Phoenix, Summers felt that he had to move on. Summers then began dating Colleen Wing but when Jean reenters the picture, Summers begins to date her again. Right before Jean’s death, Summers proposes to Jean and she accepts. After Jean’s death, Summers quits the X-Men and tries to go in to private life. After meeting a woman named Madelyne Pryor, who had a striking resemblance to Jean, they marry and have a child.

The Psychological Damage Of Wolverines Childhood

January 15th, 2012

James Howlett, better known as Wolverine, was born in the late 19th century, in Alberta, Canada, to wealthy landowners, Elizabeth and John Howlett Jr. There is strong evidence to believe that James’ real father was Thomas Logan, a groundskeeper on the Howlett Estate. James’ strong resemblance to Logan, his adoption of the name Logan, and an allusion to an affair between Thomas Logan and Elizabeth Howlett all serve as evidence. Thomas Logan also had a son, Dog, that served as a pivotal role in James’ childhood. Another character that had an impact on Wolverine’s childhood was Rose, a girl that was hired to work on the Howlett Estate and later love interest of James.

The first major event that helped to psychologically scar Wolverine was the death of John Howlett Jr. and Thomas Logan. After being thrown off the estate by John, Thomas Logan and Dog sneak back at night to take Elizabeth with them. John finds them and a confrontation arises. James wakes in time to see Thomas kill John and, in a rage, his claws come out for the first time, which he uses to kill Thomas. Obviously horrified, Elizabeth kills herself with a rifle dropped by Dog.

After this event, Wolverine and Rose are banished, finding a mining camp to work in. This is where he adopts the name Logan and earns the nickname Wolverine. They are found by Dog and, in a confrontation with Dog, Wolverine accidentally kills Rose. He then flees to live in exile with a pack of wolves.

These events show how Wolverine came to distrust everyone and choose a life as a loner. They also help to explain his difficulty in forming meaningful relationships with women, his reluctance to let Charles Xavier become a father figure to him, and his animalistic tendencies.
