Doctober Spotlight – Doctor Bruce Banner

That’s right, today we’re going to talk about Doctor Bruce Banner as part of ongoing Doctober series. And  you know what? We’re going to call him Bruce, even if the television viewers of the 1970s didn’t find that name butch enough…

Doctober Banner McFeely

Bruce is a fairy name, but Mister McFeely? That’s fine by us!

You may known Dr. Bruce Banner as the mild-mannered human side of the lumbering rage beast known as the Incredible Hulk. You may know him as Bill Bixby, Eric Bana, Edward Norton, or Marc Ruffalo. You may also known him as the man who singlehandedly keeps purple pants on store shelves the world over.  You know, you’d think that Reed Richards would throw banner a bone and whip him up a pair of unstable molecule chinos sometime. He knows the struggles of a working polyscientist in today’s world, and while certainly affordable at the price shown below, that adds up fast when you gain and lose a thousand pounds or so on a daily basis.

The Evil Geeks Top 5 Silver Age Comic Covers

We’ve talked here about our favorite covers on many occasions in the past, but it’s time we showed a little respect to the books that set the stage for the comics on which we were raised and the ones we’ve found in recent years.

SA - SECRET SIX 1

Secret Six #1 , May 1968, Frank Springer

The cover of this debut issue is remarkable in that it’s also the first page of the actual story. I’ve always been fascinated with that notion, it’s not just some pin-up but in fact your first taste of the action. Sure, Secret Six was never one of DC’s hottest comics (certainly not in the Silver Age), but it’ll always have a place in history because of this cover.

Thanos: Romancer of Death, Master of Accessorizing

2015/01/img_0514-2.jpg

Hey there Evil Geeks, we’re still several months away from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel is already ramping up to the 2 part mega-crossover event Avengers: Infinity War. Those films are still years away, but if you’ve been paying close attention to the Marvel Cinematic U, you’ve noticed that there’s been someone looming ominously in the background the whole time. Who is this mystery power player, pulling the strings behind the scenes?
