Trivial Calender April 9th – 15th

Work stress rears it’s ugly head and could only do a week’s worth of Calender posts in one go, so here goes.

It’s hard to say what was influenced by Kirby’s work in something like Star Wars, which is full of tropes and archetypes from many different places. But the conflict between Darkseid and Orion is to me far more interesting than the Skywalker family.

Quiz for Tuesday

Very few characters have varied quite as much as Batman. Being so variable has aided in his longevity, it’s interesting to see what we consider Canon is additions and not part of the original tales.

Answer: Kill, originally Batman carried a gun.

Stuff time for Wednesday

No hero epitomises the concept of clothes make the man as much as Iron Man does.

Quiz again.

It’s telling that all of those mentioned are creations of Jack Kirby.

Answer: The New Gods. If you think of all the things that a smart phone can do, the Mother Box starts to look like a Cosmic smart phone.

A creator on Friday 13th

His contributions to comics are many, including the 1980’s Phoenix retcon and a hundred more, he is also responsible for one of my favourite ever comic panels.

And finally…

Wonder Woman doesn’t have always the same city, but is often single city based and it could be argued that her Gotham/Metropolis is Paradise Island.

Going to try and get back to a regular schedule here, wish me luck.
