I was thinking this afternoon and I hate to say this but buying Marvel has the greatest shot at saving Marvel. If for some totally illogical a reason, somene at Disney, the same ones that made the great 'Kim Possible' and the 'Weekenders' and 'Filmore' wil find themselves in charge of these great properties. Could be the second rennaisance of great superhero cartoons. Disney got all the bucks and the tech to put out some wiked cool cartoons. For every cartoon for kifd to enjoy there would be something more adult for us but not the real violent stuff. All the great stories like 'Judas Contract' or the 'Secret Wars', (you know the one with the Beyonder?) could get animated. How hard would it be to do 'Marvels' or 'The Phoenix Saga' or 'Kree Skrull War" or the more recent "Civil War"? I will no doubt be wrong but this time I chose to hope.
00000000 Walt...just when I decide I hate this you go and tease me with this magnificent 'MODUCK'. I hearby support and look forward to working with our new corporate overlords.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
