The Porno Version of Quicksilver Wins

This may be old for some of you but for me;  I just discovered this gem. For the second time since The Avengers was released on the big screen, a Pornographic costume designer get “NAILS IT” (see what I did there) by making the Captain America XXX version of Quicksilver look more legit than Bryan Singer’s “Days of Future Past” version…hell, I’ll even go out on a limb and say it trumps Joss Whedon’s “Age of Ultron” version too. Lets compare the them:

tumblr_n0ceh98lsd1qjw1rjo3_1280__spanLame.QuicksilverCelebrity SightingsYup the Pornoguy wins. Major props to Director, Axel Braun. You even got The Falcon right…but I hope that big breasted blonde is The Dazzler in disguise. It only makes sense.

Captain America 2 “Easter Eggs” Checklist

captainamericathewintersoldier1

So I may be the only Geek (with a podcast and a website) in the universe that hasn’t seen Captain America 2 yet; however, maybe the joke is on YOU. Now I have an official Marvel Approved checklist of Easter Eggs to be on the look out for when I do see it.

But wait there’s more! Marvel wants you to post your answers on various social media websites with the hastag #CAPEASTEREGGS. If you are able to answer them all and share each of the correct answers online…you and your social media friends just may very well rewarded with a free digital downloads. Alas, here they are:

  • The helicarriers have new engine “tech” based on someone’s up close and personal look…
  • Keep an eye out for a few words from a “Mandarin Attack” survivor in Cap’s museum exhibit…
  • These two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents wrote themselves into the Batroc’s interrogation scene…
  • Hydra was behind this famous character’s “parents” accident…
  • Notice something “strange” when Agent Sitwell lists some possible threats?
  • Notice the doctor that comes to Black Widow’s aid in Fury’s undergrounds HQ bears a “direct” resemblance to someone…
  • Which famous comic book creator makes an appearance in the Winter Soldier’s lab?
  • Check out who’s on guard duty at Cap’s museum exhibit…
  • Catch a glimpse of a certain “tower” when the helicarriers are locating their targets…
  • Which S.H.I.E.L.D. agent “crosses” paths with Cap & lives to fight another day…

COMIC REVIEW: ALL-NEW Ultimate FF #1 (The Fail Federation)

UltimateFF1Following the Events of Marvel’s “Cataclysm”, comes a new run of Ultimate Comics like the one I am reviewing today; FF “The Future Federation”. This is not to be confused with The Future Foundation or The Fantastic Four; however, they are similar in their casting roles. The new version of the faction consists of the members of Doc Sue Storm, Tony Stark’s Iron-Man, Sam Wilson as the Falcon, and Danny Ketch aka Machine Man. Now, before the final review of the comic I read it over; twice. Both times I struggled to get into it. There was just something missing. At times, it was extremely Ultimate_FF_1_Coverhard to keep interested in and even harder to write-up a review on without saying, its Shit; THE END!…BUT, I wont do that! Lets break it down and talk about what could have been better.

The story begins with two local builders at the site of Galactus. Before you know it, BOOM! They are gone with an explosion of blue smoke. Next is a two page spread of the team and everyone at the scene of the explosion. There is just way too much going on in this page. Its hard to know where to look and there are pointless IQ scores next to the FF. The second thing what was to my displeasure was the horrible purple and blue suits. I don’t know if it was writer Joshua Hale Fialkov’s concept or the artists, Mario Guevara and Tom Grummetts conception; but they could of gone down so many different avenues with the new look. If it were my conception, I would have pulled from the Earth 616 universe and tweaked the stunning white and black costuming. Moving on. Further into the story there is a “What the hell?!?!” moment as Iron Man not only knocks himself out from a blast of energy from his suit while trying to use jump leads to break the force filed around him; only to be grabbed by their new unknown creators. One grabbing at his leg and the other at his leg, pulling most of the Iron man suit clean off; leaving him in his underwear…

Ultimate_FF_Preview_2Not everything is all “Doom” and gloom. The most redeeming quality about this book is an arrival of an Unknown Assailant being sent down by Agent Phil Coulson. Concealed in a coffin casing is to be held by someone who is so evil only this tomb can hold him. Once this persons energy is released from within the Coffin, the “big blue dome” they have been held in disappears. All of the work has now been saved. While Dr. Sue Storm is ranting, a mysterious figure begins emerging from the shadows. Then Sue hears the voice. She recognized the voice. The voice of Victor Van Damme (not Von Doom…remember its a different time line) Dr. Doom! Looking badass as ever! On a final note my score of The FF (Fail Federation) is a low 4/10! Don’t trouble yourself into buying it. It’s easily a title you can skip, but if you want to get into a new issue #1 you HAVE to check out Moon Knight or Magneto now those are issue number 1’s to invest in!

That concludes this weeks review so for next time Geekazoids. I am Hamid Hojabr. And all ways remember to “Rock Out With Your Geek Out!”

Marvel’s Agent Carter Is Coming To Your Boob-Tube

According to Deadline, Marvel Studios will be streamlining Agent Carter into a television series on ABC. The full script was finished a little over 3 months ago. Agent Carter began as a Marvel One-Shot added bonus feature for the Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray; but after you watch the following clips, its a no brainier as to why ABC will be making it into a series. Though, it shouldn’t be a surprise considering the success of Captain America 2. Plus, Marvel is notorious for teasing content to see what us fans WANT. I mean, how many of us hold our bladders to the brink of bursting while waiting for Marvel to tease us with hidden credit scenes? Speaking of bursting, lets check out these two kick-ass clips of the Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter:

SOUTHERN BASTARDS – Early Praise & Excitement For New Crime Series

tumblr_mziejs4s2E1syn0mbo1_1280.png

Welcome to Craw County, Alabama: breeding ground for bastards and the setting of Jason Aaron (Scalped, Wolverine, The X-Men, Thor: God of Thunder) and Jason Latour’s (​Loose Ends, Wolverine & The X-Men, Django Unchained) new ongoing crime series SOUTHERN BASTARDS. Comic creators and critics everywhere have already dubbed this forthcoming crime series a must-read. SOUTHERN BASTARDS #1 arrives in stores on 4/30 and is available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code FEB140475.

Advance praise for SOUTHERN BASTARDS:

Jason Aaron and Jason Latour’s Southern Bastards #1 was exactly the kind of pulp goodness I live for.”
—Ed Brubaker (FATALE, Captain America)

Can I just take a second to recommend Southern Bastards by the mighty Jason Aaron? Literally the best book I’ve read this month. Order!” —Mark Millar (STARLIGHT, JUPITER’S LEGACY, Kick-Ass)

Southern Bastards by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour made me both terrified and homesick. Fantastic start, boys.
—Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye)

Southern Bastards is perfection. There’s this great, slow menace to it. Southern Bastards #1 is a perfect comic for you if you like to read… anything.” —Scott Snyder (WYTCHES, Batman)

You need Southern Bastards. Jason Aaron is back to southern-fried grit and Jason Latour is showing he’s one of the best cartoonists of our generation.”
—Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, Punisher)

The gushing about Southern Bastards is completely on point. Jason Aaron nails it (as usual), but Jason Latour is the rocketship here.
—Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, Avengers)

This series both pokes fun at and honors their shared roots. Aaron’s gritty noir storytelling blends perfectly with Latour’s sharp artwork, creating the ideal setting for a mesmerizing, down home crime story.
—Comic Book Resources

Southern Bastards #1 is an engrossing first issue, an unnerving introduction to what looks to be dark, violent, and sad. In other words, exactly what you want Aaron and Latour to be doing. A proper Southern Gothic hiding in the skin of a trash genre, Southern Bastards is a must-read.
—ComicsAlliance

“Southern Bastards is totally worthy of insane hype. This is a book crafted with care on every level. It’s poignant and brutal. It’s over the top in all the right ways and completely subdued at the same time. It’s a beautiful dance in pacing that effortlessly shows how comics should be and need to be done.”
—Bloody Disgusting
