I must admit that I never read Thor comics when I was a kid. Hell, even as an adult I never read Thor comics. My first real exposure to The God of Thunder was the cheesy Marvel Cartoon from the 1960’s (I can still hear the theme song in my head). I don’t remember the Destroyer being in the cartoon but I do remember it in the 2011 movie.
The Destroyer is Asgardian armor that has been forged by Odin. In the movie, Loki sends the armor to kill Thor while is on Earth and powerless. The Destroyer has the ability to shoot powerful beams of energy from his face-plate. These devastating blasts leveled many of the buildings in the small town where Thor was staying. It wasn’t until Thor regained his power that he was able to defeat the magical armor. Continue reading
Everyone who is everyone is at New York Comic Con. I’ve watched this con go from a medium sized con, thrown in February to the juggernaut that it is today. 4 days of complete insanity. I crush of humanity…unwashed humanity for the most part. I remember the “good old days” when the con organizers would call me and ask if I wanted a press pass. Oh how times have changed.
One of our men on the scene is the main man over at The Red Cup Review, Rob Banks. Rob was in the thick of it on Friday and I know that he will be there again over the weekend so he is a braver man than I. Continue reading

I love that Hallmark has embraced icons from Pop Culture and is turning them into Christmas ornaments. I am sure that ornaments based on television and movie characters date back long before the 1990’s but my first recollection of a Keepsake Ornament that wasn’t typical Christmas fare was in 1991 when the first U.S.S. Enterprise was released. I guess for me that was when I felt I could really personalize my Christmas tree. No longer was I limited to reindeer, penguins and Santas, I could have starships, Hot Wheels and Muppets. Continue reading
