Dr. Jayce’s Opinion- WHO WOULD WIN? Ironman WHY? Tony Stark is willing to cheat. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE OUTCOME? I would have liked to see Red Tornado take on some other heroes like Vision.   Ben’s Opinion- WHO WOULD WIN?

Super Hero Tournament of Champions: Wolverine vs. Hawkman

Dr. Jayce’s Opinion- WHO WOULD WIN? Hawkman WHY?: Hawkman hits Wolverine with a weapon while he is out of his reach and then carries him away while dropping him in a valcano before he wakes up. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE OUTCOME: I love Wolverine, but unless Hawkman was glued to the ground, he would win 7 times out of 10.   Ben’s Opinion- WHO WOULD WIN? Wolverine WHY?: Hawkman has a cool arsenal of weapons. And with those weapons, I think he’d win … Read entire article »

Fear #1 (COOL COMIC COVERS #4)

Cool Comic Covers is a weekly (almost) look back at some of the most interesting, intriguing, and engaging artwork in pop culture. This week: I don’t know why I love swamp monsters. It has something to do with the primal idea of the very earth or soil coming alive beneath you, perhaps. Or the idea of “ashes to ashes, muck to muck”?
