MBTI: ZEUS- ENTJ

zeus2

The father to many of Greek mythologies’ most famous figures, Zeus, god of the sky and thunder, is also king of the gods and Mount Olympus, their home. He’s just got it all, doesn’t he? What a jerk. A very sexual jerk.

Seriously though, if there’s one thing that’s always mentioned about Zeus aside from his thunder-throwing, it’s how he gets it on with everyone under (and above) the sun. He helps to exemplify the best and worst in the ENTJ personality. On one hand- he’s the king of the gods. Need I say more? On the other hand, he’s a complete douche. Continue reading

Misconception of the Antihero

anti2

At one point I took a class on antiheroes. I don’t remember why because I didn’t even go to that school but there I was all the same. Pretty interesting stuff leading me to do my own research and from much of that research came the realization that the majority of modern-day characters referred to as anti-heroes aren’t antiheroes at all.

You think you know. But you have no idea. This is the diary of the antihero. Continue reading

MBTI: Nyota Uhura- INFJ

uhura

For the record, we’ll be going off the newer Star Trek movies for this one.

While Bones, Kirk, and Spock have personalities in the newer films resembling their television counterparts, Uhura seemed to go through some changes from her first appearances to JJ Abram’s big screen translation.

Uhura keeps things to herself yet can’t hide what she’s feeling. She seems to care for others in a way that doesn’t quite flow openly from brain to mouth. I went back and forth for a while on this one but INFJ seems to be the best fit. Continue reading

MBTI: Q- INTP

Q

It’s been a while since I tackled the walking brain that is the INTP. And for a while I didn’t care about typing Q because I was never sure if he was ENTP or INTP. The older a character/person is, the more difficult it can be to type because, with any stroke of luck, they’ll begin to balance out. So Q making jokes and being funny while inventing crazy weapons and tools isn’t strictly ENTP territory. Especially not for the rebooted Q. His jokes are muted and his gadgets aren’t so…gadgety.

And it’s not like all INTPs are brilliantly learned, literal Architects as Q isn’t the architect of every single invention. Let’s just be happy for Q he wasn’t around to witness the horror of the invisible carContinue reading

MBTI: Rita Vrataski- ISTJ

Or Live. Die. Repeat., whatever. I prefer the source material title, All You Need is Kill, but it all sounds good.

Maybe one of the most interesting types to me in fiction because of their trudging tenacity through life and all it’s problems. Rita’s a lot older than she looks thanks to living the same day over and over again for who knows how long.

Using a mech suit, a helicopter blade, and at one point, time travel, the “Angel of Verdun” has got a lot of tools in her arsenal. But surprise, no matter how many times she tried, she just couldn’t bring down the alien menace…alone. Continue reading

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Doctor Moreau

After hearing all the buzz on the newest Fantastic Four movie and the problems the cast and crew had with the studio and each other, I started getting more interested in that than the movie itself. Which went from boring to cliche, by the way.

It’s the perfect way to do some far off observing into how the studio views the subject itself versus how the filmmakers do. After deciding to look into some other filmmaker/studio clashes, I rediscovered the 1996 The Island of Doctor Moreau. Holy crap. Continue reading

You Should Probably Read STARVE

Another Image book, Taylor? Really?

Yeah, fool. It’s good. I don’t know what story I’d previously mentioned when I said that you know it’s good when the creators can make you care about something you never thought you’d care about. But let me use that again. I’ve never cared about cooking and I normally read comics for the art and the violence. But Starve is an exception to any “rules” I’ve had before. Continue reading

MBTI: Monster Girl- ESFP

As the perfect opposite to her former love, Robot, Monster Girl is also known as Amanda. Amanda can change into a giant green monster (ta-da) which increases her speed, stamina, strength and just about anything else the Hulk can do. Except she’s not the Hulk, she’s a monster.

Another creative character from the Invincible universe, Amanda’s age in human form has a reverse effect every time she turns into the beast the world so often needs. So while she had been forty-two mentally, she was in her 20s when we first meet her and she was only getting younger. Guess she shouldn’t have made fun of that gypsy. Continue reading

MBTI: Angstrom Levy- INTJ

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

I love this guy. You can’t help but get into a character that plays the world-ruling supervillain trope straight but parodies it at the same time. Angstrom Levy is part Doctor Doom, part Brainiac, all megalomaniac.

If you haven’t made yourself familiar with Invincible comics yet, I shame you and your father! Continue reading

An Intro to Deadpool

So by now you’ve seen the trailer. And the red band trailer. And chances are- you were into it.

And chances are, you didn’t recognize anybody in it aside from Deadpool and Colossus. Why would they do this? Probably so they can kill characters off that don’t have their own franchise and Deadpool kills a lot of people.

So here’s a quick guide to D-Pooly, his history, allies, and enemies. Sure you could go to Wikipedia, Comic Vine, Marvel Database, or a thousand other sites. But you’re already here, you might as well stay. Continue reading
