The political and social landscape influenced this character as much as this character influenced society. He was continuously adapted to fit into the events that were happening at different time periods in America. The political and social event that was occurring during his time of creation and publication was World War II. The Second World War was a global war that lasted from 1939-1945; the two sides of this conflict were the Allies and the Axis. Captain America was on the side of the Allies where he fought against Hitler and the Nazis; in the comics, he fought specifically against a fictional Nazi science division titled "Hydra."
In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, composer/editor John Ottman revealed that, toward the end of X-Men: Apocalypse's production, his assistant Byron Burton tried pitching the idea of a spin-off focused on Hank McCoy. Titled X-Men: Fear the Beast, the script was written by Burton in a span of two weeks, and was then tweaked by Ottman. Since the script featured such characters as Beast, Professor X, and Wolverine, the spin-off had to be given the go-ahead by Simon Kinberg as he was working on Dark Phoenix. That film would feature Beast and Professor X, and Kinberg was tinkering with the idea of bringing Wolverine back. Not wanting to be influenced in regards to handling Wolverine, he declined to read the script. With Dark Phoenix marking the end of the latest onscreen iteration of the X-Men, the writers are sharing their 100-page script online for people to see. It can be read here:
The history of Captain America begins in the United States, particularly in New York City. According to an article by Peter Sanderson, Andy Mangels, and David Roach, Captain America was “created by writer Joe Simon and artist Jack Kirby for Timely Comics” (Mangels, et. al. 1). To explain, Simon and Kirby created Captain America, specifically the Steve Rogers version, as a comic book superhero in a company that would years later become Marvel Comics. The character debuted in Captain America Comics #1 in March of 1941 and was the star of his own comic book series.
Enough time has passed... Endgame has come and gone. With its ending came the answers to the millions of questions that have been asked by fans. Many storylines were concluded in the three-hour runtime that formed the greatest blockbuster film of all time. Hawkeye saved his family, the Hulk found balance, Cap had his dance with Peggy, Black Widow made the ultimate sacrifice and Tony... it's still too soon to speak about that, but let's just say we love him 3000.
Comic book fans alike love to discuss their favorite superhero and which comics are best, DC or Marvel. Everyone has a strong opinion on superheroes, and most go back to the age-old debate over Superman versus Batman, and does Spider-man have a chance in that battle? This debate recently took place in Seattle. A group of court reporters went to see the most recent superhero movie, which sparked this debate again. Of course, each hero has their own traits that helped them to stand out above the rest, but when they opened the discussion to involve a wider range of superheroes they began to re-evaluate who the best hero actually is and if there is even a right answer to the superhero debate.
With Dark Phoenix coming out there has been a lot of discussion and debate over which overpowered hero is the strongest: Scarlet Witch or Dark Phoenix? Well, for the correct answer we shall once again turn to comic book interactions, and displays of power.
When superheroes are not busy saving the world, they need to relax and blow off some steam. How better than playing the beautiful game. After extensive trials, my 16 man squad has been selected with some controversial decisions made!
Like most girls, I fell in love with the highly creepy romance of Twilight; for some reason a glittery Robert Pattinson was something young girls couldn’t help but love. Now that time has passed, and it has recently been announced that Pattinson will take on the role of Batman in 2021. Yes, there have been hundreds of Batman films, but the DC world really needs someone to fix the mess that was Batman vs Superman and Justice League. Perhaps a new Batman will be its savior?
Peter Parker is one of the most popular fictional characters in the world. Both as Spider-Man, and his alter-ego, Peter’s character resonates with people across the globe. If this wasn’t the case, Marvel wouldn’t have fought so hard to gain the rights to use the character in their cinematic universe. Thanks to a deal with Sony, the wall-crawler can take his rightful place in the MCU, and share the screen with the other Avengers. Tom Holland’s portrayal of the character has garnered great acclaim, deservedly so, and Marvel is delivering the most accurate big-screen depiction of the character yet.
In comic books, heroes and villains clash all the time, and there is a constant struggle between good and evil. From Batman vs Joker, to Captain America vs. Red Skull, both Marvel and DC have penned some amazing rivalries that have spanned decades. On some occasions we also see some hero vs. hero action, such as in the upcoming Captain America 3: Civil War. However that is Marvel vs Marvel, but what if we saw a Marvel hero, and a DC hero come to blows.
