When I saw these two pieces together this morning I thought about how cool it would be if we had a scene at the end of the upcoming Avengers movie where we see Spider-Man watching the action - just about to jump in a participate. In the comic books, Spidey is an Avenger (FINALLY!!!) and both franchises are the cornerstones of Marvel's next decade of movie making.
I wish someone working on the film who is nearly as smart as me is thinking this exact same cross promotional idea. It also wouldn't hurt the Amazing Spider-Man to have Nick Fury show up. No way that Fury would not have an asset like a Spider-Man under observation the second he started to appear in public.
I just watched episode two of this season's Avenger's cartoon. They mentioned both the X-Men and Spider-Man so there is a good chance they will be showing up in the near future. They seem to be telling the story of the 'Civil Wars' where heroes took sides in the issue of Superhero Registration.
Plus there is a new Spider-Man Unlimited cartoon where Nick Fury comes out and tells Spidey that he knows that his real name is Peter Parker. Then he offers Peter the chance to be a better hero. It's a good cartoon also.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
