Marvel VS DC Deluge

Every hero needs a team. They become more than the sum of their parts. Superman, no matter how powerful he is, does have a weakness that can destroy him. The other on his team can fight when he can’t and are strong when he isn’t. So, everyone needs to be part of a team.

The International Language of Neeks

By G.P. Avants What is that international language that is supposed to be the world language, Esperanto? I think that’s it. That would be a feat to get people speaking the same language. Unless of course you are a nerd. Oh, by the way if that term still makes your eye twitch maybe the term…

For Nerds Written by a Nerd

As an adult I went to found nerds at work, school, and church. They were everywhere! When I found my wife (Not a neek, but a neek supporter), she had two boys who were major neeks on lots of levels. How else could I be convinced to open up my Star Wars collection, so we could play for hours?

A Nerd’s Brand of Hero

By G.P. Avants  I think inside all of us is a hero that wants a chance to do something great. You know, we all want to change the world in some way. Can you relate? What can a neek do that compares with those who do great almost superhuman things?  As our character, Levy finds…

Hamilton’s Shot!

  By G.P. Avants On July 4th our family enjoyed the revolutionary tale of the musical Hamilton. Over the years I had heard bits and pieces of the music, samples of the play, but on Disney Plus I saw the story from explosive beginning to satisfying end. Now, I don’t want to spoil the event…

Comics? Ha! 

  By G.P. Avants   Why do we love comic book heroes? Maybe it’s because their character and spirit have things we can emulate and affect real life. Who wouldn’t want to fly like Superman, shoot webs like Spider-man, or spike up like Wolverine and route out the enemy? Anyone who is reading this blog…

Worn & Torn 

  By G.P. Avants   From my first impression of Logan I observed a tired and weary world. Things have progressed since the last time we have seen Dr. Xavier, Wolverine and the world where humans and mutants co-habitate. Technology has progressed, but the mutants are all but extinct. Oddly, humans have become a distant colder species….

Never Tell God the Odds

by R3 Without a doubt, the lovable and funny Empirical Security droid that was modified by Captain Cassian Andor to assist him on his missions for the Rebel Alliance, was a highlight in the new Rogue One film. K-2SO is completely different than the droids that we are used to in the Star Wars universe….

We’ll Keep the Light on for You

  By G. P. Avants   Have you heard of Kyber crystals? Rogue One introduced us to the unique power source used by the Jedi to power their light sabers. We finally learn about the planet Jehda, one of the main holy places the Jedi once called home. What was once a place of light…
