It has been a year since the passing of Marvel’s comic book legend Stan Lee. For the one-year anniversary of his death, several fans paid tribute to the legendary creator. Artists whipped out their sketching materials and creative juices to immortalize Lee as part of the Marvel universe through their work.

Stan ‘The Man’ Lee and his comic book creations was a big part of my childhood and still is. For that I am forever grateful. I am as well glad that he got to experience how his great Marvel creations came to proper life on the silver screen during the past years.

Rest in peace Stan.

So I have finally seen the first season of the Netflix/Marvel tv-show “The Punisher” based on the classic Marvel comic character Frank Castle aka The Punisher. It´s a well made tv-show, it´s brutal and dark. However, my problem here is that they have made Frank Castle into a true Marine grunt and not how Frank Castle should be if you ask me. Jon Bernthal looks and performance adds to that very much. To me Frank Castle is a smart, sophisticated and driven killer machine and an expert on hand-to-hand combat, guerrilla warfare, strategy and marksmanship. This doesn´t fully come out in this tv-show. Jon Bernthal´s The Punisher isn´t fully Frank Castle to my mind. I will not see the second season, I wasn´t intrigued enough. And we did only get two seasons of this tv-show anyways before it was canceled.

Gotta love this spoof on the Volkswagen Vader commercial, in which a young boy tries his psychic powers out around the house. The young god of thunder tries to use his hammer call down the lightning on the exercycle, Lokl the pet golden labrador, the clothes dryer, a flaxen haired maiden doll, all to the tune of Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries”. The boy’s persistence with the toy Mjolnir pay off once his father drives up in the car. Note the name on the car’s license plate, the dogs name is Loki and as well as the reference to Tony Stark on the kitchen bench. (via Inspiration Room).
