Ever wondered what Jamie Foxx would look like if he was a blue, electrifying, super-powered villain? Yeah me neither, but luckily we don’t have to. Thanks to thanks to Daily Mail Online, we can get an idea of what Electro will look like in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 film. So without further ado… its Electro! (He’s the blue guy in the hoodie)I guess Marvel figured the classic green and yellow costume wouldn’t translate well on the big screen, and probably for good reason. Foxx also said back in December when describing his look:
“They want to try new things, like a liquid rubber and things like that, and there are all these bolts and stuff in my arms when they are hanging me upside down and trying to figure out what happen.”
Although it works for the comics, doesn’t mean it works for Hollywood. Come on, if you saw Jamie Fox in some green and yellow spandex getup, would you fear him? That’s what I thought. I think it was a wise decision to go with the Ultimate Electro look; it gives him the edge he needs to go up against the nerdy, but cool Andrew Garfield. So what do you think, folks? Should Marvel have gone with the classic or did they make the right decision?

This July, writer Sam Humphries and artist Andre Araujo will bring us an all new, all awesome, all robot— excuse me, android Avengers team. Woo-hoo! The team will be spinning directly out of the critically acclaimed Age of Ultron mini-event, which by the way, is by no definition ”mini.” Here’s what Marvel.com had to say about it:
“A brave new world is unleashed and only one team of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes can save us from the future. Gathered together by Hank Pym, the Vision leads Victor Mancha, Doombot and the mysterious Alexis in a race to contain an unfathomable Pandora’s Box of destruction! And which side will Monica Chang, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., find herself on?”
I Just read the latest issue of Age of Ultron, and I must admit I am much more interested in the androids of the Marvel U. than I was before. It’s no secret that I’m an mutant… X-Man, to be official, and the only android I’ve come to love is Danger, who is currently on a sabbatical. Now, that I think about it, it would be cool to see how she turned out in this Ultron mess. Anyway, if you havent been following the Age of Ultron mini-series, I won’t spoil it for you, but the Vision, estranged “son of Ultron” has found himself in the middle of all of this. Make no mistake, in this world, androids aren’t a beautiful sight for soar eyes, not even Iron Man’s armored suites. So stat tuned if you’re following, and if not I behoove you to get on the band wagon. Peace!@1 month ago with 1 note
So here’s what you missed last time on Uncanny Avengers: Rule numero uno, is that the work of Apocalypse is never done, and although things may have ended with the Dark Angel Saga, the story set in motion is not quite over. Twins have been born in the City of Akkaba, which makes Archangel a father. Surprise!The Wasp and Wonder Man, join the team for moral and public relational support, and from the way Rogue is acting, they have their work cut out for them. But that’s the least of their problems. On the other side of the globe, Wolverine sniffs out Shiro Yoshida, Sunfire, and asks him to join the team, which seem pretty damn, convenient given his time as a horseman of Apocalypse. Who are we kidding, we know that’s why he’s coming out of comic book limbo. Any who, it’s always good to see another familiar face, even if he’s rude and arrogant. Back at the Mansion, Havok’s been feeling the pressures of being the poster child for the Avengers’ unity division. With all the hoopla surrounding the Red Skull and the mess he made during his assault on New York City, the Avengers’ have to prove more than ever that mutants are not the dangerous deviants people believe them to be. But his nervousness as leader hasn’t gone unnoticed.The Scarlet Witch wants to be leader, but with a emotional and mental state like hers—that’s just not going to happen. Sorry Wanda. Besides, her past screams mutant terrorist: the daughter of Magneto, House of M, M-Day, Avengers Disassemble, the list goes on. Now, don’t get me wrong, the Scarlet Witch, has done just as much good as she’s done bad—wait that’s not true, but my point is, the Scarlet Witch is still a valuable member of the team, and her importance is best served with her experience, and not her leadership. Maybe in another reality, Wanda—pause.Havok gives a very honorable speech on identity politics to the public, introducing the “M-word.” Which brings this round circle to the theory that mutants represents blacks in America, and the general population symbolizes the majority that was the white supremacists. Which is pretty cool, because I’ll have to admit, I didn’t like the whole idea of X-Men joining the Avengers, and Captain America acting as their indirect voice.
The Grim Reaper interrupts his speech, yelling at the Scarlet Witch; something to do with the Witch’s godly powers bringing him back to life against his will. The Avengers respond fiercely to take him down, but as surely as his return from the dead has made him angry, it has also made him seemingly more powerful than before, and the Avengers are no match for him except his brother Simon, who has perfect timing; deciding to become a pacifist. Which causes Rogue to get the job done, but what she didn’t know is that there is a such thing as over doing it.The most important lesson that Captain America and the rest of the avengers on the team are going to have to learn, is that the X-Drama never ends and rarely makes sense.

Today, the world has lost a True Believer. Robert Morales, writer of the historic 2002 Truth: Red, White, and Black Marvel minnie series, has passed away at the age of 54. Along side Kyle Baker, Morales told the forgotten beginnings of the first Captain America, Isaiah Bradley, an African American man who found himself part of an early experiment to perfect the Super-Soldier Serum later given to Steve Rogers. Morales subsequently shattered any existing racial barrier that stood before him. His interest in historical authenticity grabbed the attention of many; as his creativity almost single handily redefined diversity in Marvel Comics. The story of Isaiah Bradley was inspired by the true events behind the Tuskegee Experiments. A historically real and unethical project where hundreds of African-American men from Tuskegee, AL. were told they would be receiving free medical care on behalf of the government and were unknowingly injected instead with syphilis.Starting in 1932, the government authorized project continued for another four decades until it was leaked to the press in 1972. Robert Morales contribution to comic book history will live on through characters such as Elijah Bradley, grandson of the original Captain America.
