Avengers: Age Of Ultron [3:37]

 

 

Welcome to the Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. discussion of the eleventh Marvel Cinematic Universe installment Avengers Age Of Ultron. It was a great movie and we all loved watching it! Apparently not everyone was able to see the Star Wars Trailer in the theater. But we did get to see some other awesome summer movie trailers to include: Ant-Man, Tomorrowland, Fantastic Four, Pixels, San Andreas, and Jurassic World. And after that there was no setup at all, just straight from the previous Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode into a blockbuster superhero movie all in the same Sovokia set. Language! Did Captain America’s character take a step back? What was up with Thor’s Cave Jacuzzi? Marvel did a great job of crafting the promos so that the actual story was never fully revealed so we didn’t feel like we had already seen the movie at home on TV commercials in interviews and through the internet. Was Quicksilver’s story a result of the character in two different studio comic book universes? Joss Whedon fooled two out of the three Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. hosts over the Hawkeye-Quicksilver story. Avengers! XXXXXXXX!!! Assemble Teaser Whedon!!! Just who can lift Thor’s Hammer? Does Loki/Odin still have his scepter? Ultron really made the movie fit together. Claw gets his supervillain origins story. We see fantastic glimpses into the future of the MCU through The Scarlet Witch. Just what does Hawkeye’s revelations  really mean for the comic book based marriage between Hawkeye and Mockingbird? We think about just what Theta Protocol will be in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. since it wasn’t addressed in the movie. EVERYONE loved Fury’s Dramatic moment! It was Fist pump worthy! The fight scenes were incredibly done. Everything about Vision was amazing from his complex creation to his inclusion at the end of the film. And for GOODNESS SAKE BEATS ARE NOT GOOD HEADPHONES. Listen to what Lauren’s suggestions for Hulk calming headphones are. Where was the life saving Falcon in the final battle? We are sure he was on a special cold case missing person lead but THIS WAS WHAT HE WAS TRAINED TO DO! We all love F.R.I.D.A.Y. and can’t wait to see and hear her on screen again. In the end Avengers was EVERYTHING we had hoped for and more. Marvel sure lived up to the hype.

 

 

The hosts also tentatively update their MCU rankings.

Musings of a Blerd: Thorsday #5 The Adversaries of Thor Part II

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

I bid thee all a Happy Thorsday! Tis been a little bit of a harrowing week for myself and my kin. My mother was in the hospital but fret not, people of Midgard, she’s has returned to the realm eternal and is recuperating in the house of healing and doing well. We thank all of you kindly for your heartfelt thoughts and prayers.

When we gathered together last week to celebrate, I began my list of the god of thunder’s adversaries and this week continues and ends with part II.

1. Lorelei

lorelei

The younger sister of the Enchantress, Lorelei has caused Thor trouble in the love department but most of her evil deeds are to prove that she is better than Amora which lead to causing Thor trouble as well. She was last seen as part of a robbery team in Loki: Agent of Asgard #2.

 

2. Midgard Serpent

Jormungand

Prophesying the seer Volla stated that Thor would battle the Midgard Serpent during Ragnarok-the Twilight of the Gods. Our mighty thunderer would kill the creature but would walk nine steps afterward before dying from the serpent’s deadly poison. Before the big battle took place, Thor and the serpent had a couple of run ins with each other.

3. Titania & The Absorbing Man

The former boxer and imprisoned criminal becomes the Absorbing Man through one of Loki’s schemes. After drinking a liquid that the god of mischief had laced with some Asgardian flavoring, Carl discovers he has the power to absorb the properties of anything he touches. He escapes his cell and battles Thor and holds his own against the god who is forced to withdraw due to Loki kidnapping Jane Foster. After learning the origin of his powers, Carl is humbled and becomes Loki’s servant being a thorn in Thor’s side for many years.

Titania_&_Absorbing_Man

From bully to supervillian, to Skirn: Breaker of Men, and back, Titania has caused a lot of trouble for many in the superhero community. Married to Absorbing Man, she is his partner in crime and doesn’t come into contact with Thor as much as her husband does. But if he’s fighting the bad fight against the god, Titania has his back and can hold her own.

 

4. Malekith the Accursed & Kurse

The ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim has battled Thor many times. His latest appearance was in Thor: The Dark World.

thor-2-kurse-malekith-adewale-photo

One of Malekith’s followers a dark elf named Algrim fights Thor but is later betrayed and left to die in the comics. But he is saved by the  cosmic entity called the Beyonder, who turns him into a powerful being called Kurse. Kurse has his revenge on Malekith and is granted citizenship among the Asgardians. He also becomes the guardian of the children of Asgard. The movie Kurse however takes a different path, a more evil one to be exact.

 

5. The Destroyer

233px-TheDestroyerThis enchanted suit of armor forged by the all-father Odin has many times come close to killing our mighty Thor. Possessing unlimited superhuman strength, the armor can easily overpower Thor and even the Hulk. The Destroyer can be used by the lifeforce of a sentient being which inhabits it and doesn’t suffer from physical fatigue.  This armor is one BAMF.

And that concludes this entry, come back again for another sermon concerning our beloved thunder god. For Asgard!
