On another note, has been moved to a new server. Yours truly (and many others) helped by donating some money to the cause, and now it is up to "the mighty Ben" to begin the hard work of upgrading and changing the site, taking it from the fabulous to the super-unbelievable. Stay tuned...

Hulk vs.

I watched the "Hulk vs." DVD a couple of days ago. As it has Wolverine in it, I feel it is okay to plug it here.

Man oh man! I thought it was going to be okay...but it was freakin' AWESOME!

The first part was Hulk vs. Thor. The story was decent. But man oh man, the pure unadulterated violence of this! If you want to see these two go toe-to-toe and trade hits , beating each other to, I do not understand how Thor even SURVIVES this fight, lol! Dude gets his royal arse kicked! And we are talking about THOR here! Thor is (or used to be, anyways) so totally awesome!

The second part is Hulk vs. Wolverine. As much as I did not see how Wolverine could stand up to the Hulk in a fight for very long, I wondered what the heck they were gonna do with this one. Well, the fight between them is interesting. This episode has TONNES of humour, made me roll on the frickin' floor lol-ing. I was never a fan of Deadpool, but now I am. Yes, he is in here too (yet another "Canadian" type hero), and man is he hilarious. Awesome fights, but even better dialogue and plot. Haven't seen anything better since I watched the "Watchmen" movie.

All in all, I say, if you haven't seen this, go out and get it. You won't be sorry you did.

I rated the first episode a 7/10. I rated the second episode a 10/10. 17/20...can you get that much enjoyment from most DVDs this day?

Don't think. The "Hulk Vs" DVD, just go get it.

What (Isn't) New

So, “what has been going on in the world of comics” is the question you are wanting answered if you are here reading this blog.

From an Alpha Flight standpoint...not so much. No word heard from Aurora since her confrontation with Norman “the world belongs to me” Osborne several months ago. Northstar is still appearing in X-men comics, but basically as a bit player – not surprising, since there are approximately one billion mutants or ex-mutants or repowered mutants or wanna-be mutants hanging around the X world right now. Mister Madison Jeffries is still showing up regularly as a member of the science team in X-men comics; and, they are still getting his character completely wrong! Madison is still being displayed as some sort of brilliant scientist type, when every true Flight fan knows that Mister Jeffries has no doctorate of any kind and is a mechanic by trade. Presumably, Sasquatch and Arachne are the only members of Omega Flight left in Canada, and I guess they are carrying on the good fight sight unseen (although how just the two of them could do much is beyond me!). Marina and Wild Child are the recently-deceased former members of Alpha Flight. Michael Pointer, former member of Omega Flight and the killer of Alpha Flight, now known as Weapon Omega, works for the evil Norman Osborne in his Dark X-Men. Talisman and Snowbird are presumably still somewhere in Canada, doing whatever it is they do when nobody is using them. The rest of Alpha Flight is unheard from, dead or presumed dead, or in limbo until somebody decides to do something with them.

On a personal note, I recently received in the mail my very own copy of Alpha Flight Volume 2 Annual featuring The Inhumans. Thanks to “rplass” from, who was kind enough to pick up a copy for me and send it to me (you rock!). I thoroughly enjoyed the issue.

I have also been collecting, online through Mile High Comics, a number of other titles from yesteryear. I now own about half of the West Coast Avengers (1980s and 1990s) series, as well as a bunch of old (1970s) Werewolf By Night issues and (1980s) Moon Knight issues. I have been enjoying reading through these classics very much!
That is about all there on these subjects, so that is all I will write about for now. Back with more news, when there is news.
