I know, I know I messed somehow.

Laziness has taken me these past months that I semi-shelved this piece. Saw Wonder Woman and it floored me, just like it floored everyone else it seems. I just couldn’t write about her because every other article I saw in the net has praised the beloved heroine. I am also so lazy that I haven’t updated the DC article and haven’t touched the comics as well. I am sorry. Day job is an a*hole. Again I am sorry.

Watched Spider-man: Homecoming yesterday. And I liked what I saw. It was a fresh new take on our beloved character that even new kids from the 2000’s can even identify (Spidey’s big screen image has been rebooted 2 times already and has been played by 3 actors, so far).

This is Peter Parker struggling through his teens part, the essence that the two previous outing didn’t tackle so much, maybe because they were played by older actors. This is the growing up Peter time. Spidey at his most hilarious.

Tom Holland, although in my taste not the matinee idol face you can think of, pulled by far a superior performance of the three actors. Maybe because this time Sony, with my head nodding, sought the help of the Marvel gurus to help with their script and make Spider-Man fresh again. They didn’t need to doubt, as Marvel gave us this wunderkind of a film. No longer do we have a predictable death scene of Green Goblin and Gwen Stacy. What we have now is fresh storyline that nobody can guess.

I think that is the magic of the MCU. It gives us a new fresh prespective of what we read in the comics and make it fresh and brand new on-screen.

I thought Tony Stark would dominate the scenes but no, he took the back seat when he needed to and made Spider-man into the foreground. It’s basically the story of Spider-man like we aren’t used to. And because of this I just can’t wait for Thor to come-out. So far the MCU has brought in two critically acclaimed movies in Guardians of the Galaxy and Spiderman, it only keeps getting better and better.

Tobey did a swell job suiting up as our favorite web slinger and some say he’s the best for the job. But I’m giving Tom Holland a shot here. Specially since Marvel will be working closely beside Sony for the upcoming film. So here’s a mild shot at Tobey’s Spiderman out there.

The Top 10 Most Iconic Marvel Supervillains (PART 2)

The Top 10 Supervillains of Marvel Comics

Counting down the Top Ten superhero villains of Marvel (LIST) – Numbers 5 to 1.

5. Loki

Loki is the adoptive brother and often enemy of Thor. Based on the Norse God of the same name, Loki is as deceptive as his Norse mythology counterpart, making his debut in Marvel Comics appearance in Timely Comics’ publication Venus No. 6 (August 1949).

In the comics, Loki is a son of a frost giant, whom Odin kills. Odin found him under wraps because his father was ashamed of Loki’s small stature. Odin raised him like a son alongside Thor, but he found resentment to the fact that other Asgardians treated him differently from the oft-favored Thor. Asgardians valued strength, tenacity, and bravery in battle above all things which Loki was clearly lacking. But what he excelled at is power and skill, particularly as a sorcerer.

His foray into the black arts earned him the title of “god of evil” among the Asgardians, and he forged alliances with many of the realm’s enemies. His sinister plots cast a huge shadow on Thor and other earth heroes, and this is why he is one of the most iconic Marvel supervillains ever.

4. Green Goblin

Ruthless industrialist Norman Osborn was the co-owner of a leading New York firm, Osborn Industries. His wife died while giving birth to their son, Harry, which rendered him embittered. Norman raised Harry dispassionately, devoid of fatherly warmth, and was always mad by Harry’s failure to demonstrate academic excellence or a competitive drive.

Lusting for more power, he tested a strength enhancing serum for himself, emerging smarter and superhumanly strong, but at the cost of his sanity. His insanity led him to target Spider-Man as his main enemy. They had many great battles, until Spider-Man accidentally killed him in a struggle where the Goblin also killed Spider-Man’s love interest, Gwen Stacy.

But the same formula that had given Osborn his heightened strength and intellect also gave him powerful regenerative abilities. He lived. And cast his shadow over Peter Parker, manipulating him in succeeding episodes in the comics. It can be said that The Green Goblin is Spider-Man’s greatest enemy per se.

The Green Goblin is created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The Goblin made his debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #14.

3. Thanos

Thanos is a member of the Titanian Eternals. Thanos possesses abilities common to the Eternals, but amplified to a higher degree through a combination of his mutant–Eternal heritage, bionic amplification, mysticism, and power bestowed by the abstract entity, Death. Demonstrating enormous superhuman strength, stamina, and durability, he can absorb and project vast quantities of cosmic energy and is capable of telekinesis, telepathy, and matter manipulation. Thanos is an accomplished hand-to-hand combatant, having been trained in the art of war on Titan. Longtime Marvel comic book  readers know him as the cosmic bad-ass who long possessed the reality-altering Infinity Gauntlet, who killed half the universe, including many Marvel heroes, before his misdeeds were undone.

Created by writer-artist Jim Starlin, the character first appeared in Iron Man #55 in 1973, making his debut in the Bronze Age of Comic Books, Thanos has been featured in the Marvel continuity for about forty years and counting.

2. Magneto

Magneto is synonymous with the X-Men- you can’t discuss the X-Men without ever mentioning Magneto. Magneto’s power is the ability to generate and control magnetic fields. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby in 1963, he made his first appearance in X-Men #1, becoming the very first foe of the iconic mutant team.

Magneto is a mutant separatist, in contrast to Professor X’s ideal of human co-existence. He believed that mutants are the next stage in human evolution and he sought of ways to assert his dominion over the powerless humans and the planet. Though not a hero, Magneto is charismatic, noble, and wise. His long and turbulent friendship with Charles Xavier has been a cornerstone for both men’s lives, as a rivalry that has lasted decades. Their lives, forever intertwined.

I had trouble really selecting #1 as the finalists have their own weight in the Marvel universe and as it is, I present to you 1A and 1A.

1B. Dr. Doom

Doctor Doom was conceived by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby. Doom first appeared in The Fantastic Four #5 (July 1962) wearing his trademark metal mask and green cloak.

Born out of Latveria, His mother died in a bargain with Mephisto that has gone wrong. Longing to save his son from the same fate, Werner von Doom fled with a young Victor on a cold winter’s night.  Victor survived the cold, but unfortunately his father did not. With this, Doom sought to increase his knowledge of both science and magic in order to rescue his mother, whose later death he blamed on Mephisto.

In one of his attempts to fuse both science and magic, one of his devices exploded leaving his face scarred for life. From then on he used his metallic mask to mask his face and set his sights on world domination. A perpetual rival of the Fantastic Four, particularly Reed Richard AKA Mr. Fantastic, and has appeared in many of Marvel’s alternate universes and spinoffs, in which the character’s history, circumstances, and behavior varies from the mainstream setting.

1A. Red Skull

Red Skull is the arch enemy of Captain America, who can be more iconic than that? Inspiration for his development came when writer and artist Joe Simon saw a hot fudge sundae melting and noticed it resembled a human figure. First conceptualized with the working name “Hot Fudge”he later renamed him with the appropriate “Red Skull,”   which sounds more menacing.

Born, Johann Schmidt, Red Skull was a Nazi general officer and confidant of Adolf Hitler. He is closely affiliated with Hydra, an enemy of the S.H.I.E.L.D., the Avengers, and the interests of the US, and the free world in general.

He was physically augmented, with physical strength pegged at least at the same level of Captain America, He appeared to be killed in the past, only to return time and time again to plague the world with schemes of world domination and genocide.

SpiderMan Homecoming to have musical score from same composer as Doctor Strange

The musical score for SpiderMan Homecoming will come from the same composer of Doctor Strange

Marvel Studios, with Sony Music, are going massive lengths at making sure the movie Spider-Man: Homecoming is just as great as the recent superhero film releases. And probably greater than the previous takes on the Spiderman movies franchise. It is a long time since we had seen Spider-Man in his own film (the recent one starring Andrew Garfield), and with Marvel’s success with Doctor Strange, what better way than a followup by the same genius Michael Giacchino for its musical score.

Here’s a sampling of Michael Giacchino from Doctor Strange:

Michael Giacchino was the man behind the musical scores of Doctor Strange (Marvel), Star Trek Beyond, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He will once again be providing the score for Spider-Man: Homecoming according to an announcement made at a Q&A for SpiderMan Homecoming with the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, and the director of Doctor Strange, Scott Derrickson.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is expected to land in theaters July 7, 2017, with the casts including Tom Holland (as Peter Parker/SpiderMan), Marisa Tomei (from My Cousin Vinny and The Wrestler, as Aunt May), Robert Downey Jr. (as Iron Man, The Avengers), Zendaya (rumored as Mary Jane Watson), Michael Keaton (rumored as Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier, Tyne Daly, Donald Glover and more.

Also read: Spider-Man: Homecoming is getting a prequel comic, because yes, Marvel is doing it.

From AVclub:

Marvel does usually release tie-in prequel comics for its movies that fill in some background details that aren’t explicitly underlined in the final film. So, it won’t be especially surprising if it does the same for Homecoming.

That being said, Homecoming being a reboot of the Spider-Man movie series means background details are going to be a bit more crucial…

We will all be waiting how the new Spiderman Homecoming movie turns out!
