Hey there nerdcore Nation! Have you heard much about The Amazing Spiderman 2? I have heard almost nothing about plot line or story HOWEVER, I can come to a conclusion. The way the villains are being set up eventually I believe we will be seeing the emergence of The Sinister Six. I’m going to go on record and say that I am not a huge fan of Jamie Foxx as an actor. Hes a great comedian and I will always watch one of his if they are on. Jamie Foxx as Electro is something I am also very apprehensive about. I hope I am proved wrong and I hope that his costume is drastically improved upon throughout the movie because the black hoodie and dark jeans just doesn’t cut it to me as an Electro costume.
This movie has been saved in my opinion from anything that could make it suck for the simple fact that it has Paul Giomatti as The Rhino before the suit. In my opinion Paul Giomatti is one of them most versatile and plain badass actors that I have ever seen on film. Finding out he is in it made me want to see that movie even just that much more. I can’t wait!
Ahh now here we go back to our bread and butter. Ive picked up quite a few new comics recently and I would like to take a minute and talk about this questionable Spiderman incarnation. I will be giving spoilers so if you do not want to know what happens in Spiderman #700 don’t read on.
In Spiderman #700, Doctor Octopus has peter right where he wants him. Strapped down on a table waiting for him to switch their brains. Switching conscious into each others brain. Then Doc Oct’s body is destroyed. Then we see Peter Parker through the eyes of Otto Octavious. Some who might go to the length of saying a possible future of what Peter Parker could have turned out to be. As if he gets a second chance and he is taking the world by storm.
The new Spiderman is more straight to the point, ass kicking, thrill ride of a comic. The writing is superb and the story arcs even early (delving into the polar change in Peter’s behavior) are excellently handled. Also don’t count our original friendly neighborhood spiderman out yet! He’s tailing his old body as a ghost from place to place. Even seeing into Otto’s mind and memories. Will he get his body back? Where will that leave Doc Ock? Only Time will tell.
There is so much controversy revolving around this that it isn’t funny. So much negativity and even death threats to the writers? Come on guys! As much as I love comics and vidya games (ands I dos) there is no reason for all of that rot. Even though Superior Spiderman takes the franchise, turns it up on it’s head and spins it around till it gets dizzy, there should always be room for a open mind. Parker is the brainchild of many writers through the years and he will be forever more. He isn’t going away. He might take a vacation like this one but he is always going to be Swinging On.
My final thought on the series? I absolutely love it. It’s fresh! It’s new! It is something I honestly think The Amazing Spiderman needed. Its a great read for new comers and old timers alike so go out and pick up your copies as soon as possible. Good night True Believers.
Ever wonder what it would be like to be Ironman? Ever wonder what it would be like to be Tony Stark? Ever wonder what it would cost to be Ironman? Well today is your lucky day since I’ve found a neat little run down on the costs of the armor and the tech and random things Tony has laying around.

It’s that time again my dear Nerdcore Crazies! I have a stock of reviews to unload on you all and mabey by the end of the week you will be able to put your head back togather like our favorite Merc With A Mouth Deadpool. Speaking of Deadpool, I hope this isn’t the first you have heard about this amazing new comic run of his!
Deadpool Kills The MarvelUniverse is one of the best incarnations of Deadpool that I have ever read. Xavier and the X-men bring in Deadpool to a psychiatric hospital for derranged supervillains. During his “treatment” it is reveiled that his Doctor is actually Psychoman! (Spoiler warning!) Psychoman breaks Deadpools fragile link to reality and well then gets killed by Deadpool. The treatment effectively made deadpool a focused killer with only one voice in his head and an intent to kill every super (whether it be villain or hero) in the universe.
Essentially the story behind it is that deadpool finally breaks loose of the comic world. He goes on a killing spree to release the people we know, love and hate from having to dance to the drama we crave as comic readers. Proffessor X tries to stop DP by breaking down his mind but is turned into a vegitable when he sees DP’s perspective. Beyond that.. The Watcher dies, The Fantastic 4 and so many, many others.
(Also another Spoiler: Dp Blows Spiderman’s head off.)
Overall the artstyle is general to Marvel comics. Nothing too special there. The story is a definite 10/10 and an amazing storyline drivin by insanity and a kill count higher then Robocop 3! IT is definitely an amazing read for ANY fan of Deadpool and the marvel universe to see how their favorite hero or hero team dies.
