Super Hero Special Features, and
Sci-Fi with a Twist
Short science fiction and fantasy stories that, more often
than not, end with a surprise or twist you couldn’t see
coming. Transport yourself to other lives and other worlds
where travel through time and space is a reality and where
second chances and the end of the world sometimes cross
paths. It’s a detour into the unknown filled with wonder and
excitement beyond reality, and yet close enough, to make you
second guess yourself.

The Man from Nowhere
A man appeared from nowhere near the
small out west town of South Fork in the 1800’s, and quickly
became the town’s trusted sheriff. His speed with a gun was
greater than what any of the locals had ever seen before. If
only he could remember who he was and where he came from,he
might have a chance against the man every bit as fast with a
gun as he is that wants him dead and doesn’t care who he has
to kill to do it.
The Incredible Hulk vs Rom the Spaceknight
The Incredible Hulk issue 296 is one of
my favorite comic books from back in the day. This is
one of those classic issues that you can read over and
Not only does the Hulk take on Rom Spaceknight, but he also battles another Hulk
that I believe was most likely inspired by the old Hulk
incarnation from the TV show.
The History of the Red Skull Captain America's Biggest Enemy
the back of Captain America #12 1998 the Red Skull's history up
to that point is laid out. These are words from that issue for
the most part.
Describing the Skull the article says, "He has been called the
most evil man who ever lived. The symbol of hate. The
incarnation of torture. A bane to all those who would live free
from tyranny. And therefore, it should come as no surprise that
he is the sworn enemy of the land of the free's protector of
liberty, Captain America."

a simpler time when cartoon animals ruled the world. His
books are simple, but fun. There are no secret political
agendas even if there is the occassional humorous reference
to current events. Parents and grandparents can rest assured
that if they buy their kids or grand kids a Lucky book that
their children will not be subjected to questionable or

The 1982 JSA/JLA/All-Star Sqadron Team-up!
In 1982 one of my favorite time story
epics of all time made it's way to the local newstand. DC
Comics took the annual JSA/JLA team-up and expanded it into
the JSA's book the All-Star Squadron. The fate of Earth-1,
Earth-2, and Earth-Prime was held in the balance as well as
the past and future.
Superman’s Health and Fitness Mission for President Kennedy
Back in 1963 very shortly before the
assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Kennedy administration
asked DC Comics to involve Superman into their health and
fitness program. The project was cancelled after the death
of JFK, but brought back after Johnson asked DC to publish
the special story, which they did.

Space Stars goes to DVD
Space Stars is a 1981 NBC Saturday morning cartoon created
by Hanna-Barbera which ran from 1981-1982 on NBC. I remember
because those were the good old days when I personally
watched Saturday mornings that were filled with cool
cartoons. The Space Stars featured the return of 60's
superhero space stars like Space Ghost, the Herculoids, and
even brought back Astro from the Jetsons to team up with
some other heroic dogs, the Space Mutts.
Now the series is on DVD.

Why the Avengers are Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Part 2
Clint Barton, also known as Hawkeye, is
the perfect example of an Avenger who's had his share of
exciting adventures both on his own and with the team. The
Avengers changed his life, and he has gone through
considerable character developement since his creation. When
Hawkeye joined "Cap's Kooky Quartet" he would constantly
pick fights with his teammates Cap and Quicksilver, and
possessed an attitude that made him frustrating to be
Why the Avengers are Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Part 1
Hank Pym is one character who doesn’t get the credit he
deserves. It shouldn’t be forgotten that he helped found the
team. He was an Avenger even before Captain America showed
up. He’s gone through several superhero personas over the
years such as “Ant-Man”, “Giant-Man”, “Goliath” and
“Yellowjacket” and even though he hasn’t always been around
writers love to use him.

Where are the good guys?
Is there such a thing as actual good guys
anymore in comics, television, and movies?
Depending on your age, you may or may not
remember a time when superheroes and heroes in general aimed at
kids actually took moral stances on things like stealing, lying,
cheating, and so forth. These days heroes barely seem to hold
life itself in very high regard.
What is a hero really? Is it just someone
that can beat the living crap out of the bad guys? These days
the line between bad guy and good guy is so faint about the only
thing separating them is plain old murder.

TV Batman's Moral Inspiring Quotes

bring back memories of the good old days when Batman and
Robin were as worried about being good moral heroic examples
as punching out the bad guys.

builder Reeves went on to appear in a string of sword and
sandal movies shot on relatively small budgets, and although
he is best known for his portrayal of the Greek hero
Hercules, he played the character only twice: in the 1957
film and its 1959 sequel Hercules Unchained (released in the
US in 1960). His first Hercules film was an 1958 Italian

to Superman comics. I really miss seeing his type of art,
