Heroes and Songs: Joker

Heroes and songs is the title but last week I did a villain of sorts (by no means a…hero…though I suppose the definition of “hero” lies in the individuals eyes…*shudder*) and this week is o different. Perhaps I would have been better of title this feature Comics and Tunes– though that would be easily misconstrued. People would come thinking they’re getting a delightful eye-full of comic books, strips and cartoons. It would be disappointing no doubt to see song lyrics. So perhaps Supers and Songs? Super can mean a great deal of things…super nut jobs, super villains, as well as … Continue reading Heroes and Songs: Joker

Heroes and Songs: Sharon Carter and Steve Rogers

This relationship is one of the longest Steve has had. The first love he found out of the ice in the new world also happened to be related to a love from his long, long ago pre-frozen past. So in a way Sharon represented a joining of the two worlds. With her came a comfort and a safety of sorts …then the worst happened: While working as a S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison with the New York Police Department, Sharon investigated and infiltrated a white supremacist terrorist organization known as the National Force. During one of the National Force’s battles with street criminals … Continue reading Heroes and Songs: Sharon Carter and Steve Rogers

Swamp Thing?

Who am I? What Am I!!! Say the dramatic theater major in an over the top soliloquy. And where the heck have I been? Asks the exasperated blog reader…at least they would if I had any fans. Just kidding! Really I have come back from the living dead, from my own personal brain swamp to live again, breath anew and have my Spring re-awakening…not that I’m a slut or anything…well anyway. I have had my turn of events. The beginning of the “New Year” has seen me at the hospital, becoming an impromptu physical therapist/chiropractor to message/tweak some bodies stomach … Continue reading Swamp Thing?

The Real Captain America

The line “I walk a lonely road” comes to mind…for don’t we all? Perhaps in some way or another…for we all have a path, a driving force. For some it is out of habit, out of honor, ritual, promise, debt or beholden. For others it is with their whole being. It is something that can be hated, marred, wounded, raped and turned against. Yet even if you try you can not forsake it. I am not talking about anything wrong here. No vice or addiction. I am talking about belief. I am talking about pride, passion and the sacrifice that … Continue reading The Real Captain America

Captain America, Joyless?

So the entire premise of Sam taking up mantle of Captain becomes weak and almost blatant an attempt for attention right on the heals of Thor becoming a woman. Again it can never be stated enough that I have no particular problem with these changes. It’s the organic nature of character/story development or lack there of that I call into question.  Like, for instants one of the things I am most upset about is the comment made by the new Captain America’s writer: “I’ve been having a lot of fun writing Sam,” Rick Remender said in a Marvel.com interview. “It’s … Continue reading Captain America, Joyless?

The Raven and The Robin

  My world can be dark at times, Sang the Raven to the Robin, Whereas your color means spring and life, For some it can mean heaven, Yet I am one of winter, Of desert lands and death, I can not change my nature and my color may be black, Yet I still feel with the weather, I fly to heights unseen, I may be around in winter’s chill, But I still enjoy the spring. I am what is persevered by visions worn in time, The convention of our elders, The world of ever turning rhyme, Is it said to … Continue reading The Raven and The Robin

Black Out

Black out of self, Repaint my soul, Refurbish my mind, Make new from old. Same past that’s scaring, Same story retold, Same excuses, Same blessings, For once let me be bold. Take one step forward into a beginning, Let something be started instead of always seemingly ending. Rebuild this house, Renovate my mind, Let my will be opened to the redesign, Stubbornness betrays me, I feel the jilt, Instead of blooming, I sit and just wilt. The darkness is growing, Yet it makes me remember, The light I once had when I fully surrendered. ~Glory Anna     Continue reading Black Out

Decline In Our Nature

Another tree gone, It withered so sad, And with her I mourned, Red eyed and black clad. I had forgotten the secrets I spilled at your feet, Did they speed your decay, Make your innards weep? A tree gone is a life lost, A soul in decline, The wretched, the wicked, The true, The divine. You were a shoulder, Your branches and bark, They were a friend, You have left your mark. Yet you will still be forgotten, Lost in times shadow, In memory you’ll fade, Your reflection grows hollow. Yet you marked years that I stared at your leaves, … Continue reading Decline In Our Nature

Holy Gender-Marketing Batman!

You know if there is one thing I can’t stand (yes I know “one thing!?!”) it’s the presumption that wanting strong female leads in comic books means we just want girls and girl themed products focused and only directed and marketed towards – you guessed it – girls. That’s not helping close the equality ranks between men and woman that’s drawing a line. Like the no Black Widow toys – oh wait exception being a few products one in which her image appears on a bag – chic, nes pa? I happen to have a huge action figure collection and … Continue reading Holy Gender-Marketing Batman!
