Everyone wants to be a superhero. The powers, the glory, the ability to wear coloured tights in public. But how can us normal folk achieve this greatness without subjecting ourselves to radiation poisoning The Hulk or wrapping ourselves up in tinfoil Iron Man?
Then Black Panther came along and I found it so compelling that it washed away any Marvel fatigue I had been feeling. When the opportunity arose to watch the third Thor movie on an airplane, I hit the play button with genuine excitement. Going into this, I had heard almost all positive things.
Captain Marvel is the formal name of Mar-Vell, a Kree warrior with cosmic super powers not unlike those of Warlock. He posesses the Nega-Bands, two bracelets that give him a connection with the Negative Zone. Mar-Vell has come to make the Earth his home, and is a sometime ally of the Avengers, and a friend of Rick Jones.
Just a little Thorki one-shot. Loki stared at his brother from across the table. After a second, and a few chuckles with Frigga and Fandral, Thor turned, and caught Loki staring at him.
I don't get involved in the Marvel versus DC Comics debate because I love them both equally and I want both of their films to succeed. I was absolutely thrilled when I saw that both Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League were going to open within a week of one another — talk about an early Christmas present for comic book nerds! Sadly, while Thor: Ragnarok was fantastic and became a box office juggernaut, Justice Leagu e was a mess.
Thor is associated with the day Thursday which comes from the word Torsdag in the Scandinavian countries and in the Germanic countries it is called Donnerstag which means thunder day and comes from the word Donar, which was the name of Thor in the Germanic countries. While Thor is the strongest of the Gods, he is not the smartest or the wisest of the Gods, and many giants tease or fool him as much as they can. This makes the giants crumble in fear and sends chills down their spines.
W hen Loki and Thor set out to visit Utgard, city of the giants of Jotunheim, they came across a peasant's cottage, and going in were made welcome by the peasant, who unfortunately had not enough food to satisfy the voracious appetite of the thunder god. Thor, however, seeing the problem, killed his goats, and they ate the meat, Thor's strict instructions being that no-one should break any of the bones. The peasant's son, however, a lad called Thialfi, unable to resist, broke a tiny bone and sucked the marrow.
