Celebrate 50 Years of S.H.I.E.L.D. With Marvel Comics in 2015!

Celebrate half a century of Marvel’s premier intelligence agency in 2015 as we proudly commemorate the S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary! When Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first introduced S.H.I.E.L.D. in the pages of 1965’s Strange Tales #135, boldly proclaiming it “The Greatest Action-Thriller of All Time!” – the landscape of the Marvel Universe would be changed forever. Now, half a century later, S.H.I.E.L.D. has made the jump beyond the comic page – bringing us some of the most iconic stories and memorable characters in all of popular culture. Join us as we celebrate this monumental legacy with exciting new projects throughout 2015! Continue reading Celebrate 50 Years of S.H.I.E.L.D. With Marvel Comics in 2015!

That’s right folks the segment you didn’t even know you missed is back! JulesTrue is back in action folks and I’m here to bring you the goods! As we all know Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has quite the roster, and you may not know everyone who’s filled that roster. Well thankfully I do! From East Coast to West Coast. From Secret to Uncanny. I’ll be bringing them to you every week right here on OUTRIGHT GEEKERY!

Well I’m at it again folks and this time I’m taking it all the way back with a founding member of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. One of the first major members to get his own silver screen treating. This member has been on and off the team for years dealing with his own issues. But of course you think you know this Avenger, but do you really? It’s time to catch up on ol’ Shellhead and dive into the beginnings of the Iron Avenger!

Ultimately the Best Choice

Now I know what you are thinking, who cares about Ultimate Marvel? Well for one JulesTrue does, and I’m here to let you know it’s pretty frickin awesome if you give it a chance. Once a week I’m gonna hit you with a story arc from the Ultimate Marvel Universe starting from the beginning. I’ll spotlight on whats brilliant, what’s not so brilliant, and what might be a good idea for the 616!

This time I’m diving into the second title to join the Ultimate Universe! The Success of the recently launched Ultimate Spider-Man gave the folks at Marvel a hunch they were onto something. The whole translation of classic characters into the modern age seeing how they would cope in this new digital age was brilliant. So they figured which characters would translate just as well for a whole new generation of readers. Well the answer was easy especially since the success of Fox’s X-Men movie which had created a big buzz around the characters once again. However as we all no there isn’t exactly an easy jumping on point for the Children of the Atom. So Marvel did the next best thing to rebooting the X-Men and created the Ultimate X-Men!. From the  Creative powers of Mark Millar, Adam and Andy Kubert!

This week we are going back to the early days of the additions to the roster. This Avenger has been a long standing fave of mine and many will agree a total bad@$$ in his own right. One of the few remaining heroes on the Avengers who doesn’t even have powers. And what else is crazy is he started his career as a villain. That’s right folks this weeks Avenger is everyone’s favorite purple Archer, the guy that has punched Cap and Ironman in the face more than any other hero!
