Line(s) of the Day #StanLee


“I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic-book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realise: entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain people, you’re doing a good thing.”

“Another definition of a hero is someone who is concerned about other people’s well-being, and will go out of his or her way to help them – even if there is no chance of a reward. That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero.”

I wouldn’t normally use two quotes for a post, but it was impossible to choose between these two. Thanks to his many dynamic and modern Marvel creations like Spiderman, Thor, Hulk, Black Panther and the X-Men, the 95-year-old Lee helped launch the comic books revolution that has led to the incredible popularity of blockbuster superhero films. Thank you Stan Lee (1922 – 2018).

Film Quizzes: Marvel Films

After going to the Marvel Universe event at the 02 over the weekend, I thought why not do a quiz about films made from characters from the comic books. I have done three previous quizzes on superheroes (lonegroup and 20 Century) but there are so films on Marvel creations that I wanted to do a bonus length specific one. Do you have a favourite Marvel character? Do you prefer the ones set in the universe or previous ones?
