Go See The Avengers. Today.


It’s no secret that I’m a comic book fan. I talk about comics all the time, I write/blog about them all the time, and I tweet about them all the time. So it’s probably not a surprise that I was excited for Marvel’s The Avengers.

Like…really excited.

To be clear, I get excited for pretty much any superhero movie. As someone who has maintained a childlike fascination with comics since I was childlike, it’s just fun to see superheroes in movies. Seeing these characters whose stories and adventures I’ve only read on a panel-to-panel basis suddenly in real, tangible action is an exhilarating experience every time.

Even when it’s not the best “movie,” I can still enjoy it simply because superheroes are involved. Whether it’s the Daredevil movie with Ben Affleck (which I enjoyed, but most people don’t consider to be a “good” movie), or The Dark Knight (which a number of people consider to be one of the best movies ever, superhero or otherwise…even if Batman is a DC character), I’m able to get a thrill out of them strictly because they involve superheroes.

As a Marvel fan my entire life, I was excited when Marvel started making its own movies through Marvel Studios. As a very quick explanation, Marvel had to sell of some character film rights to other companies in order to make some money in the late 90s and 2000s. For example, Fox owns the rights to the X-Men franchise and Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man films. That’s why you’ll never see Wolverine or Spider-Man in an Avengers movie (at least not anytime soon).

All that is to say, Marvel’s recent success with Marvel Studios films (Iron Man & Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America) is really, really exciting as a lifelong Marvel fan. Marvel was finally able to make movies the way THEY wanted to make movies, and they turned out amazingly.

To sum it up, The Avengers somehow manages to both complement those previous Marvel films while simultaneously blowing them out of the water.

The eye-popping action, the laugh out loud hilarity (seriously…the whole theater was laughing…it’s not just me being a comic book nerd…), and the genuine emotion each hero brought to his or her character instantly catapulted Avengers right up near the top of my all-time favorite movie list. I’ve only seen it once so far, and I already know I’m going to love it when I see it again.

Basically, as someone who has spent thousands of dollars (probably) on Marvel comic books, hundreds of hours in my childhood playing with Marvel toys and games, and dozens of hours watching the various Marvel films, The Avengers was everything true Marvel fans hoped to see in a movie of this magnitude (and, selfishly, deserved to see). And then it was more.

Whether or not you’re a comic book fan, you should go out and see the Avengers on a nice, big movie theater screen. I promise—absolutely promise—it won’t even sort of disappoint. Even my wife, who is in no way a “comic book nerd,” said she loved it. And she doesn’t lie about stuff like that.

You don’t have to be a comic book fan to enjoy The Avengers. You just have to be someone who enjoys an epic, emotional, action-packed story that somehow makes the unbelievable feel absolutely, entirely, and entertainingly believable.

Now I just can’t wait for the next batch of Marvel films. Should be amazing.

The antients used Christinaity to initiate the "Beginnning of The End". Along the way they used it to initiate other tools which they will use to further mankind into decay and towards the Apoocalypse:::USA, "democracy", capitalism/corporations.
Of the tools they have used, religious, political, economic, social is by far the most damaging and seems reserved for those who have experienced each tactic:::
The god's social tool promoted moral decay, whether sexual, behavioral, professional, etc. It created an enviornment where indecency is the norm.

The dogs are dead.
And they're still incurring evil from their prior life(ves).
Junior Seau is a good example::The real, a 20-something in her next life, making progress, so the gods allow her clone host fake to committ suicide, allowing her off the hook incurring evil in her prior life. AND close the restaurant, her legacy in capitalism.
Al Davis should be so lucky.
The antient's leaders, politicians, celebrities, corporate executives, scientists/professionals are clone host fakes, fresh out of high school who woudln't know their ass from a hole in the ground. Without the gods doing their jobs THROUGH THEM they'd only be good for playing with themselves.

Because of their use of clone host fakes the gods have created a blameless society where nobody takes responsibility for the destruction which has occurred.
The BODs, CEOs and wealthy are fakes fresh out of high school, the gods no longer push anyone into it and instead used temptation, and the result is devistation the gods won't "make up" to the disfavored anymore.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth, matching our decay, but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend as a child in a future life.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
You NEED active parents who share wisdom to have a real chance to ascend into heaven in a future life, and you MUST be a good parent as well to have that opportunity in your next life.
