Many moons ago we brought you a Top 5 list of our favorite costumes across various mediums. This time Biff and Martian Luthor Kang revisited the idea with a keen eye and a finer toothed comb.
5) Iron Man Armor (MK III)
Iron Man’s well known red and gold armor is a masterwork of sleekness and simplicity, but it never stood out to me. Maybe because it has existed for the entire time I’ve been alive. Yet when I dove back and saw him for the first time with that armor and the oh-so 1960’s horns on it, I knew I was looking at something special. Designed by the legendary Steve Ditko the horned look didn’t stick around long, but man do I wish it did.
Bonus: The original giant silver armor (MK I) and the original giant gold armor (MK II)
I completely get why these were redesigned especially since they seem so incredibly bulky, but I just love that vintage 1960’s Sci-Fi B-Movie look.
Join us as the Geeks take the Marvel Cinematic U by storm and break down Captain America 2 and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. After that the group gets into Game of Thrones new season (spoilers,) a really disturbing Archie cover, and somehow end up on the new Avengers cartoon again. Enjoy Transmissions From the Evil Lair!
Happy Friday Nerds!
Last night I caught an early screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and I’ll say that Marvel has got one helluva movie on their hands. The movie gives us a modern day Cap story that simply seems believable. Any fan of Brubaker’s famous run of Captain America with the story of the same name will be pleased with the title characters move into a new medium. I’m gonna start spilling my guts about ol’ wing head in a minute, so if you don’t want spoilers then stop now, if not keep on reading! Read the rest of this entry
