I am an aspiring astrophysicist with the hopes of one day contributing to man-kinds progress to understanding the origin of the universe. I use my writing to spark curiosity in others as well as to keep my own ambitions alive and well.
From Playboy-Billionaire to Savior of the Universe
Our affinity, as it stands for the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist is undeniably immense and is an affinity that has been nurtured for many of our long-lived comic book fans for many a decade, but for those of us younger fans who were fortunate enough to not only gain exposure to the brash greatness that is/was Anthony Edward Stark through the amazing comic books adventures that have been printed on pages since 1963, we have also had the privilege of seeing this amazingly constructed and well-written character be brought to life on the big screen. The powerfully talented Robert Downey Jr. did more than bring a comic book character to life, he personified and embodied this character without pause and seemingly, effortlessly. We not only got to see Tony Stark fight the forces of evil on theater and television screens, we saw him LIVE and we saw him GROW.
I know I am extremely late to the party on this one but can I just take a moment to acknowledge the works of this man right here. I can't believe that I have not heard of this man until recently. He is simply enchanting to listen to whether its to his lyrics or in interviews speaking on what faith means to him. The man has become a legend in my book in less than a weeks time and that really doesn't happen often.
We Need a Marvel Fighting Game
It's a fairly common opinion that DC's fighting game franchise "Injustice" was and arguably still is a huge success, with rumors of another installment possibly coming into fruition for the next-gen consoles. DC isn't currently the most paraded when it comes to it cinematic success, not like its long-lasting rival Marvel who has been dominating the box offices since the release of the first "Iron Man" film back in 2008 to its last release in 2019, "Spider-Man: Far From Home". But one could argue that the DC has made its mark in the videogame world, particularly the fighting game world just as much, if not more than Marvel has.
So...for those of us here who are Day 1 MCU fans, WandaVision is already having many of us fiending for episode after episode, waiting for the dots to begin connecting to the main cinematic story arcs that have already been delivered to us. Now, for the Day 1 Marvel Comics fans like myself, this has many of us, like myself downright confused and fully vexed as to what is ACTUALLY going on in this warped reality Wanda has apparently thrown her, Vision and the other citizens of Westview into. Furthermore, its left us wondering who or what is the main antagonist. We all know there is a baddie lurking somewhere in the budding multiverse that Kevin Feige has only merely begun to weld together.
Ever since I was a small child, I always had a feeling I was destined for something more grand than what I was frequently exposed to on a daily basis. I was born in a very small town in the northeast of North Carolina, residing on the border of Virginia. A rural area is too humble a category to place the town of Roanoke Rapids in but deeming it a city is too generous.
Asteroid Mining For the Future
What happens when the Earth's most precious resources finally begin to dwindle? When its gems are all but scraped from its surface and sold off? When its rarest elements are strained and used? When the last gallons of water are on the brink of being consumed? Or even more grim of a reality, when the last tree is chopped down and fresh air becomes a scarce commodity? What then?
