One Month to Go!
Welcome to “The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks!” I bet that name makes your knees shake, it has EVIL in it afterall 🙂
Anywho, welcome to this blog. This blog was created for many reasons, but the one that tops them all is because my best friend and I getting psyched to go to the NY Comic Con for the 5th time in October. Well, we are 30 days away from that momentous journey into mystery and to celebrate we would kick off our blog with what we planned to do, talk about cool-ass nerdy shit! So here goes….
Have you seen the cover to the new Thunderbolts comic yet? If not, take a looksee….
Can you believe that? That image should be filed in the dictionary under BADASS!
In case your a noob, The Thunderbolts were a team of villians who were masquerading as heroes, who eventually became heroes. Then it kinda morphed into a bad-guy-for-hire kinda deal sorta like the old Suicide Squad, where they got to do this rather than sitting in prison. Who knows what the overall theme of this book is gonna be like, but you gotta love the fact that The Thunderbolt is leading the Thunderbolts….
Whats that you say?….What am I talking about???? Oh yeah, the leader of this bunch of mercs is no other than the Red Hulk himself, General Thunderbolt Ross, who has always been a “do whatever is necessary” kinda character anyway, so it will be fun to watch him lead the dirty team while the Avengers get the glory. Other sites out there are talking about the interactions between Deadpool and Venom, but personally I cannot wait to see good ‘ol Wade chat up frank Castle just to have The Punisher shoot him in the head, or hit on Elektra and have her snikt little Wade. As usual, I’m sure he will provide the comic relief and will have a ton of fun killing tons of people. The only one that I’m not too sure of is Venom to be honest. I know that is Flash Thompson in there and that he has been using the suit for the military, but thats it. Might be a good dynamic between him and Ross. I’m betting/hoping that the first arc has something to do with The Hand (Elektra’s old dead ninja crew) but really who knows. In case you’re not aware, this is part of Marvel’s new MARVEL NOW line, which is not essentially a reboot, but a retooling of their characters and teams. I haven’t been too crazy about this until now, but thats probably because I haven’t been exactly thrilled with the new 52, but we’ll have to see…
OK, enough outta me! Thanks for checking us out and stay tuned to more reviews, rants, and general chatter from The Brotherhood.
Stay Nerdy, Internet!
