COMIC BOOK REVIEW: The All-New Marvel NOW! – Cyclops #1

Cyclops_1_Land_Variant
Before getting started, I just want to acknowledge this year is the year of reboots and first issues. Boy do we really need them. For that matter, we are given another X-men spin-off title. Don’t get me wrong. Magneto’s series is kick ass! Check out JM’s review on it and your see why! I am really into, Brian Michael Bendis’ “All New X-men” but my interest for a pubescent teenage Scott Summers with daddy issues is non-existent.

The comics isn’t terrible buy any stretch of the imagination; but it’s just average. The art has done very well to keep to artist David Marquez’s drawing style of the young Scott Summers from All New X-Men. There are some redeeming quality’s. For instance, Scott using his optical beam through space. Also, there is a scene in the Space Jammers cockpit what very Star Wars Esq and it was cool to see how a young Scott Summers instinctively lead the head of the attack on the other ship…but that’s really about it. There is just no substance. No edge to get you hooked. No yearning for more. The way it ends it could easily be a one shot issue with nothing really leading you for more or no real cliff hanger.

I know I’m not really writing much about the first issue but I don’t believe in shitting on someone else work too much. To me this comic isn’t worth paying for by adding it to your Wednesday hauls. So swerve it for now, maybe wait until it’s a Trade Paper Back. Nevertheless, if you do get it go for Skottie Young’s baby variant. Its a pretty cool dawn baby Cyclops shooting his optic beam. Anyways, I’m only going to give this a 2 Metal Horns out of 5.

So let me know what you think and reach me on Instagram @his_masters_voice25 or tweet me @hamidhojabr.

I am Hamid Hojabr. All ways remember to “Rock Out With Your Geek Out!”

COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Magneto #3

Magneto-Header

Magneto, The Master of Magnetism. Well sort of…you see, at the moment; Magneto has broken powers. The Phoenix Force blasted through him and many more Marvel characters and their powers have been “broken”; or rather, reduced. Sure it is a handicap of course; however, that won’t stop Magneto from infiltrating corporations with intentions on harming Mutants and humans. That’s right. He’s pretty pissed about and I quote:

“…I must use more conventional means to achieve my goals. Those who hide within are responsible for unspeakable acts against the HUMANS they corrupt and turn into monsters…and against the Mutants those monsters have slaughtered…and ME. Here to bring it all down.”

In other words, there are not any limits or boundaries to restrain himself from annihilating all those involved in this project. Except maybe he can’t just toss the building into the sun. Since he’s a brilliant man he’s become extremely versatile with the restrictions, embarrassed by the lack of strength, he utilizes the simplistic approach to conquer. With that said, he has moments of frustrations with captions of nostalgia and reminiscing of how powerful he was in the past. But writer, Cullen Bunn, uses his phenomenal talent to make Magneto just as powerful, without all the power. Confusing? Well you will have to read issue 1 and 2 to understand how far Magneto will go, how he’s adapted, and why he’s being tracked. He’s leaving a body trail and the feds are just a few steps behind.

One last word on the comic because it’s VERY important. Artist, Gabriel Hernandez Walta, has been on board with Cullen Bunn since issue 1. Every page is masterful. The darkness of Magento’s mental state is plastered throughout the comic book. I hate to compare the style to Charlie Adlard of The Walking Dead fame, but it’s what I think of in most of the panels. Particularly in the homeless tent camp. Further into the comic are splashes of colors by Jordie Bellaire conveying the travesty Magneto has endured in trying to find his own sanctuary of peace. Nevertheless, this comic has phenomenal artistic presentation.

Do I recommend you reading Issue 3? Yes. There are some easter eggs for potential story arcs or game changers in this issue; but I must urge you, again; read from issue 1. It’ll cost you $12 at your local Comic Shop. It’s well worth it. Why? Because I give this issue a solid 5 out 5 Horns.

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.

COMIC BOOK REVIEW: All New Marvel Now! X-Force #3

 

x-force-3As with all things new to me, I go in with empty impression and an open mind. Nothing has changed here with this read. I’m hardly going to go into detail due to the depressive display I’ve just read. Another button in the shirt of the ALL NEW MARVEL NOW recreation, or rather, the re-imagining of an old Black Ops team known as X-FORCE. Most notable characters such as, Cable and Psylocke return as part of this team completed with it’s accented companion Fantomex and “newbie” Marrow. It was a complicated read at times. It wasn’t until the 3rd or 4th page that I found out who was talking and who was arguing back and forth with the snide comments; Note to self…never talk crap about a mutant…especially when he/she is a psychic, you just get your speaking skills taken away at the bat of their eyelids). The meaningless banter of Marrow continued through a good chunk of the book. It became a challenge to want to continue.

Along with this team, a recently liberated weaponized mutant,named of MeMe,XFORCE2014003 follows X-Force via personal relocation device (designed by Dr. Nemesis) that resemble a quad-copter with a Zordon like face (MMPR GOOOOOOOOOO!) and the non-funny version robot temperament of Alpha. The team begins tracking to find the whereabouts of a man by the name of “Volga”; who is behind a massacre that was called “The Alexandria Incident”, where this non-mutant, Volga, used mutants as weapons to kill 3,000 innocent people. The cells failed to coincide with the text at times feeling you in a paradox of story emptiness; which became another negative aspect of the read.

 

Psylocke has a narrative every so pages as if she was attending an A.A. meeting, saying it’s been a certain amount of days since she last “weakened” a.k.a. dismembered someone and or played tic-tac-toe on someone’s torso with her sword. She is literally addicted to killing, which really isn’t a bad thing; but it goes against the legendary “Comic Book Code”. The killing scenes of her “weakened” were some of the best illustrations in the read, but were nowhere close to being enough to save it from disappointment. It tediously dragged on for most of the story. Aside from the killing scenes, there was maybe an honorable mention to Pantera in the form of Volga’s mantra, “Volga Display of Power.” See what they did there? I XFORCE2014003PG6did….or maybe I obsess about hidden messages that aren’t really intened the translation I gather, maybe they are only coincidences. Maybe the METAL GEEKS podcast will have writer, Si Spurrier, on to elaborate on this. Anyways, this Comic Book is certainly a pass and wouldn’t recommend it. It was kind of a slap in the face of the makeover that they gave Cable after all. He went from bad ass to…bleh, retired lost time travel pirate with metal arm rather than a peg leg. Until next time. Listen to metal. Be metal. And read more comics.

“Days of Future Past” Director Bryan Singer Accused of Raping Teenage Boy…

bryan-singer-2014-vanity-fair-oscar-party-02

I just read this article on The Wrap and I hope its not true. Not because I care about the success of his upcoming film, but if he is the slimy, perverted, sexual deviant these accusations are making him out to be; I feel so terrible for everything the kid (and the potential OTHER KIDS that haven’t come forward due to fear in this disgusting Hollywood sex ring) has gone through. Read over the article below. Come to your own conclusion, but from what it seems; Bryan Singer won’t be making anymore appalling Comic Book movies if found guilty.

Credit to: TheWrap
“X-Men” director Bryan Singer is being accused of drugging, raping, and using his power to exploit a teenage boy in a lawsuit filed Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by TheWrap.

According to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii, plaintiff Michael Egan, who was named in a press release by his lawyers, was 17 when he was forcibly sodomized by Singer, among other accusations.

Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.

The suit alleges Singer provided Egan with drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii for sex on more than one occasion in 1999 where Singer continued to “anally rape” him, and claims that Egan was not the only underage boy who was abused.

Plaintiff has requested a jury trial and is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for charges of intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault, and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion.

The lawsuit was filed a month before the release of Singer’s next movie, “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” is due to be released. A representative for Singer did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment. Nor did a representative for Fox.

The abuse allegedly began in 1998, shortly after Egan was lured to parties at a house in Encino, Calif. where a high school friend lived, the lawsuit claims. The house, known as the M & C Estate, was often the site of “notorious parties” where adult males allegedly preyed on young boys, the lawsuit claims.

According to the lawsuit, Egan was a model and aspiring actor. The documents claim Singer told Egan at one such party that “the adults who resided in or frequented the M & C Estate controlled Hollywood and could decide whether Plaintiff’s career aspirations and hopes would be realized” and was also present when Egan was warned to keep those men “happy” or else he and his family were in danger.

The men supposedly told Egan they were sure he was homosexual according to their “gaydar,” even though Egan told them he was straight, and plied him with drugs and alcohol against his will and often without his knowledge.

“Plaintiff was often forced to consume alcoholic beverages and drugs, and was also surreptitiously administered drugs when they were placed in beverages that he consumed,” the lawsuit reads.”
