DC and Marvel Character “Similarities”

2wWA4bC

Marvel and DC both have many characters that share strong similarities with their cross-company rival.  Sometimes it is a coincidence.  Two people have the same idea, no matter how novel, independent of each other.  Sometimes it is just because there are only so many archetypes.  Of course there is going to be some nearly identical characters.  Sometimes they aren’t even that similar.  We just want to make this list longer.  Other times, they are 100%, complete rip offs.  When DC/Marvel did the Amalgamation back in the 90’s, they could have just used the original.

See what you think after the break.

Wolverine 3 Is Old Man Logan?

Yes, that is a Venom symbiote over a dinosaur.
Yes, that is a Venom symbiote over a dinosaur.

Hugh Jackman is going to play Wolverine one last time.  At the San Diego Comic Con over the weekend, he suggested his final go-around with the character may be based off the “Old Man Logan” storyline.

That…would be a great send-off for the character actually.  Too bad they can’t make a particularly faithful adaptation.

Behind The Mask: The Avengers Personality Chart

20896893027919e8cd32dacad58557cb

Generally, with larger-than-life superpowers come larger-than-life personalities. How each hero deals with problems is hugely representative of who they are as people. They are each complex individuals with different ways of tackling everything from their world-threatening enemies to their personal demons. Over at Fanpup, they’ve taken a crack at sorting them by Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). If you don’t know your type but want to see which of The Avengers you’re most like, you can take the test here. – So Jenny is an ENFP – which one do you most identify with?

sense-of-right-alliance

There is a serious injustice happening right now in the Toy industry. I’m not talking about how we’ve strayed from making toys indestructible (have you ever tried to break a Lincoln Log?), or how craftsmanship is a thing of the past. Nor am I talking about how most toys now-a-days have some kind of mechanical battery operated mechanism which leaves nothing left for imagination. No – the injustice I speak of is something that’s always been there, yet I’m so damn fed up with it – and that’s gederfication and blatant sexism in the toy industry.
