Rex mason became metamorpho after an accident in an egyptian pyramid.Rex mason was dating simon stagg's daughter saphire.Simon stagg strongly dissaproved of him dating his daughter and rex was working for stagg as his tv host exploring dangerous places of the world.Simon had a plan to get rid of mason by trapping him in the pyramid.Instead of being killed somehow the egyptian orb of the sun god ra gave him superpowers.Rex uncousciously escaped by transforming into smoke.He soon ralized that he could form into any element on the periodic table.Rex feels he is ugly because of the transformation and would do anything just to be normal again so he can have his life with saphire back.Rex tried to force simon stagg into finding a cure for his condition.He was offered a chance to join the justice league in my metamorpho year one story, but unnfortunately turned them down,cause he wanted to be normal.Metamorpho took on two different robots the first one he turned into vapor slipped into a vent and destroyed it and the second one turned into titanium and crushed it.In closing I feel that meatamorpho is a unique character with an interesting power and a very tortured spirit.
The red lanterns are just as interesting as the green lantern corps, and I am very happy that they are getting their own series.Atrocitus is the leader of the red lantern corps.He forged the red ring of rage on the firey pits of the planet of ysmault.His people were anihilated by the genocidal manhunters who were androids created by the guardians of the universe before the exsistence of the green lantern corps.One of my other favorite members is dex starr a kitty cat from earth.The red lantern power ring removes the users heart and replaces it with a new plasma heart.The ring gives the user the ability to fly threw space, create force fields, and spew a type of lava blast that can burn through almost anything including the vaccums of space.Most members are so blinded by the rage that they cannot create constructs, atrocitus however has mastered the rage other people who have been able to use the ring to create constructs are guy gardner, mera, and hal jordan, but in hal and guys case they were able to because they also had a green power ring(or will powered).Mera was a temparary member.I love the fact that their rings are powered by rage only wish that other members aside from atroctitus were able to focus more so they could also create constructs.
The crow is an awesome revenge( or redemption) story based off the graphic novel which is created by james o barr.Eric Draven is a rock guitarist whom his fiancee and him are brutally muredered by a gang who his evil man named top dollar who basically runs the town.A year later a crow brings eric draven back to life to set the wrong things right by avenging his and his fiancee's untimely death by the hands of top dollar and his crew of criminals.As long as the crow remains alive so will eric draven.The four criminals that were sent to kill eric draven and his fiancee shelley webster are tin tin, fun boy, skank, and t bird.The movie was amazing a very close to the graphic novel and I feel it was an extremely sad tragedy when brandon lee died during the making of the film.The graphic novel is another one of those underground comic book stories.I love how violent and dark both the actual story and the movie are.After his buissness is done he will join his loved one in the afterlife.
Lobo is like a cross between conan the barbarian dog the bounty hunter and han solo.Lobo is pretty violent and does what he wants when he wants.Their are couple different interpretations of Lobo, some will say he is barely stronger then normal human others which I prefer say that he can stand toe to toe with the man of steel himself.One power that is always a constant is in the comics is that he has an enhaced ability to sense people that he is tracking which makes him extremely useful as a bounty hunter.Lobo has a superpowered motorcycle that he built himself and can travel extremely fast through space.Their is only one episode in which he appears on the justice league animated series, but I love the way he was represnted on that episode and loved his personality especially with brad garrett doing his voice.I am very interested in getting some Lobo comics I think it is real cool that scott ian from the metal band anthrax helped write one of his stories.I would love to see a rated R movie, because he is so violent and does not live by the rules.He is a metalhead space biker.I apoligize for the lack of information on the character I will definitely try to find out more and I will be looking foward to emersing myself into his world.
I would like to discuss a character that is outside the mainstream comic world of such powerhouses as marvel and dc.His name is spawn (aka al simmons).Spawn is independtly owned by its creater todd mcfarlene.Spawn is dark and interesting, he is from a no holds bare kinda world.Al Simmons is a soldier whom dies and is given demonic powers by the devil malbolga.Malbolga tries to force him to serve and also lead in his army of demons.Spawn refuses to join while trying to find a purpose for being back on earth he protects rat city(or the ally he usually resides in) from cyborgs, old comrades and anyone else sent by jason wynn.Al tries to reenter his beloved wife wanda, but realizes that their is no place for him anymore especially with his former best friend terry has married to her and them having a daughter syanne.Spawn's armor and cape can do pretty much anything he imagines.He uses a lot of chains and green plasma blasts as well. Spawn's main weakness is the more he uses his power the more he will deplete himself.I love clown (aka the violater) he is an amazing villain like the joker only more powerful and equally sadistic always giving spawn a run for his money. I love the movie only wish they waited a little longer so some of the special effects could be improved.I recently watched the hbo animated series and found some of it to be dissappointing, mostly because their was too much narration.I have two different comic books which cross batman's world with spawn's and I find them to be amazing reads.Spawn is a very conflicted charater and I enjoy reading about him .
Etrigan is very interesting he is a demon from hell, despite his violent tendencies, usually finds himself allied with the forces of good, mainly because of his alliance between the dc characters mainly Jason Blood whom which he is bonded with.Etrigan resembles a squat, muscular humanoid creature with orange skin,horns,red eyes, and bat like ears.Jason Blood is tall, thin,and has dark and red hair.Etrigan is son of the demon Belial who is smmoned by merlin the wizard, his half brother.Merlin is unable to obtain the demons secrets so he bonds the demon with jason blood who is a knight in the medievil times or king arthur's camelot.This process renders jason blood immortal.Much later Jason Blood settled in gotham city and became a demonologist.Even among demons etrigan is powerful. Some his powers include above superhuman strength(mystically enhanced) enhanced senses,super speed,telepathy,energy blasts and precognition.Jason blood himself is also skilled in hand to hand combat.Etrigan is powerful enough to stand against characters such as wonder woman,superman and the space bounty hunter lobo.His main weakness is holy powers and in the occurrence that he has to face such a threat he would have to revert back to his jason blood form.Etrigan has constantly had to deal with the threat of the sorceress known as Morgan Le Fe.If dc universe is able to make a movie with him in it I believe that it would be the bees knees.I would love it.Alright thats all I got on my boy Etrigan/jason blood.
I would like to go in a slightly different direction this time.Their is a very strong misconception about superheroes and comic book characters.People probably believe that the hero always wins that they will always be able to save the ackday.I believe that because the protaganist almost always rises above the challenge in the movies that general people think that is how it is.This is far from the truth in the actual comic book world.I will give several examples of this.In the green lantern movie hal jordan was able to destroy parallex,but in the comics parallex took control of hal and used him for evil.Later on in the sinestro corps war sinestro and his followers killed several members of the green lantern corps.Sinestro killed laira when she became a red lantern.Their are many events in batman's history that are tragic, but I will get to that here in a bit.Another one is when the mighty superman fell at the hands of doomsday.The flash was tormented by reverse flash (or proffessor zoom) before he even had his powers travelling back in time and torturing him.Now here are some of the events of batmans tragic history.first the death of his parents leading him to become batman then the death of the second robin jason todd who was beat to death with a crowbar by the joker.The first true defeat batman suffered when bane broke his back.When the joker put barbara gordon in a wheelchair by shooting her in the spine and kidnapping her father comissioner gordon and trying drive him crazy.Later the tragedy in which we are led to believe that darkseid kills batman.Their are other tragic moments in comic book history,but these ones I found truly interesting oh yeah almos forgot the inital death of martian manhunter.Thats all for now.
