Hey guys! Today, we talk about a character that is very important to the DC Universe. He has been around in every major incarnation of The Justice League, down to the New 52 continuity. He is the last survivor from the Green Martians' race of Mars. The Last Martian. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: The Martian Manhunter.
Twinkle Annuals, which were especially for little girls. Twinkle started as a Comics Magazine in 1968 until 1999, with an Annual every year from 1970, and its last was in the year 2003. The Annual contained stories of regular characters, and some new ones, all illustrated with beautiful pictures. Fun, colourful, perfect for a little girls' imaginations. There were also some puzzles pages and pictures to colour in, very exciting for a child! The Annuals were printed and published by D.C. Thomson & Co. In 2012 Royal Mail issued a special stamp of Twinkle, to celebrate Twinkle's history!

It punched its way into the hands of readers in the spring of 1976.
In the acclaimed 2003 film Lost in Translation (stick with me here), Bill Murray plays Bob Harris, a lonely, middle-aged actor who’s traveled to Japan to star in a Suntory brand whiskey ad campaign. During his trip, he meets and develops a semi-intimate relationship with Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), a directionless, twenty-something American newlywed meandering towards an incredibly early pre-midlife crisis.
Despite what a legion of now grown-up X-Men cartoon and comics fans of the early 1990s have come to believe (and what Screen Rant erroneously claimed as a “verified” fact), Stan Lee, the co-creator of Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men, didn’t base the creation of Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto on Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.
