Captain America's character design has stood the test of time. Cap Am was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, who first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 in 1941 as a propaganda tool, urging people to buy war bonds. Since then, the basic elements of his design have pretty much remained the same. Captain America's costume has gone through multiple variations over the years, but every single time it does, it always comes back to the classic red, white... Read more

Let’s be honest here. In the last five years of TV and cinema, we have been bombarded with a plethora of movies involving vampires, each one claiming to be the real deal when it comes to these supernatural creatures. It is perfectly understandable that we develop a sort of intolerance towards them and suffer from vampire fatigue. Secretly, however, we all know we just want something new in this genre that will shake... Read more

Despite my being 30 years old, I still have quite the fascination with cartoons designed for kids. That's why I keep my ear to the ground for new stuff. So when I heard of Mixel, my interest was piqued. So I looked into it.
What I found both horrified and impressed me. In a move that would make Disney proud, LEGO, with Mixels as their opening salvo, is set to dominate multiple screens, and capitalize on that through merchandising. So, essentially... Read more

I'm embarrassed to say that like many nerds, I automatically jump to worst-case-scenario when it comes to news about adaptations to licences that I loved as a kid, and Robocop was one of them. When I heard that Hollywood was doing another movie about the murdered Detroit cop brought back to life by cybernetics to fight crime, my reaction was a less than stellar example of open-mindedness.
In fact, there may have been a generous measure of angry screaming, and some... Read more

I don't get a lot of gaming time, and most of it has been spent on Marvel Heroes. I didn't think I'd be this crazy addicted to it. So I figured, might as well geek out about it on GeekOut!. Thor is actually my second hero to level up, but I'll do him first. Cyke, my first level 60, will be next.
This build is based on area attacks and survivability. And playing Thor the way he is in the comics... Read more

I have to be honest, the Legends line was a bit meh when they announced the "revamp" or "rebranding" and all but hey, it did work, in my opinion. I mean, it might be to early to tell since we only have the Captain America, Spider-Man legends line and the TRU Exclusive X-Men boxset featuring the original X-Men sporting some new molds/bucks. Anyway, just a few days ago, I saw some photos posted via Marvel Toylines' FB Page and Marvelousnews... Read more

Are you and your significant other what some people would classify as geeky? You have a hard time doing the conventional date thing with a lot of loud people buzzing around you? Problem is, truly geeky people don't enjoy what the rest of the conventional population enjoy. And more often than not, geeks are into many, diverse things that aren't normally considered appropriate for a Hallmark holiday like Valentine's Day. But fear not, my friends, for we have come up...

I know what I'm about to write is a very unpopular opinion. I've posted about it on Facebook and was met with very valid points by those who disagreed with me. So let's get that out of the way first.
The LEGO movie, as a movie, is not bad in any way. But a part of me can't shake the fact that the entire thing felt like a 100 minute TVC to sell you more LEGO sets. Seriously. I bet the... Read more

The huge dude covered from head to toe in muscles on muscles just won. He had just beaten the young Japanese guy who now lay on the floor before him.
The poor kid had a nice, agreeable-looking face and came out earlier that night to the DragonBall Z theme, which was enough to get the audience to cheer for him. The big man – simply, ominously named The Bodyguard, and couldn’t have been more than 5’8” but definitely more than made... Read more

We all know how much a console costs. We're all aware of how much it'd take to put a gaming PC together. We all know how expensive games can be, even though Steam offers some fan-freakin-tastic deals. And to some, this is what constitutes the entire gaming cost. Some people, especially those who don't really pay the bills around the house, often neglect some of these very simple factors.
This post isn't made to dissuade you or your family from gaming... Read more

Justice League: War is the cartoon equivalent of a Michael Bay movie: lots of action, explosions and silly women. If that's what you're looking for in a comic book feature, then this DVD from the guys over at Warner Bros. Animation is just the thing.
However, if you're like me and was a fan of the DC Animated Universe and its unparalleled success at creating a hugely entertaining inter-connected continuity with superior screenwriting and world building, then you'll be disappointed.

I honestly don’t know what to tell you.
I could tell you that we weren’t denied a Daniel Bryan performance at the Royal Rumble. I could tell you that, as usual, it was a stellar showing. It was nothing short of amazing – full of drama, full of intensity, pain visibly bristling through every strike and throw. I could also tell you that that’s how you wrestle a main event match no matter where you are on the card.
But I couldn’t... Read more

I only got wind of SyFy's new show, ‘Helix,’ a few days before its premiere on the cable network on January 10, 2014. So far, I've seen three episodes and I’m hooked, eager to see what’s next.
The show is produced by Ronald D. Moore, the guy behind the ‘Battlestar Galactica’ reboot, and a mess of other creative guys from shows like ‘Alphas’ and ‘The X-Files,’ and movies like ‘Contact.’ The new show is the brainchild of Cameron Porsandeh, a writer... Read more

In case you missed it: on the last RAW of 2013, the storyline between Daniel Bryan and the cultish Wyatt Family took an interesting, if not baffling turn. After weeks of harassment and suffering at the hands of the diabolical three-man group, Bryan stood before them during the final minutes of RAW… and joined them.
While this development was indeed shocking, it doesn’t come close to what would happen on the January 13 episode. After only three television shows (and everything... Read more

I'm pretty satisfied with my collection - I have my Avengers and my Marvel Knights, and my 3.75" collection has shaped up nicely. When the Marvel NOW! costumes were announced, and they gave Hawkeye a much needed update, I immediately knew I wanted that design in my main Avengers display. So, as the year ended, I felt like splurging and buying a couple toys as a little Christmas gift to myself. I went ahead and went online and bought myself... Read more

There are a bunch of hulking, evil companies that, if they were not evil, I would totally invest in in real life. Here is a rundown of my 3 corporations:
Abstergo Industries, specifically Abstergo Entertainment
So, I come from a long line of assassins (right) and was sworn into the brotherhood about 5 times (including 2 DLCs). But, what Abstergo is doing in terms of expansion and their new product line is absolutely cool. Would totally buy around 50,000 shares.
The Animus is a... Read more

As Michael Bay's new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' movie is due out later this year, I thought I'd take some time and re-watch the 1990 live action adaptation. That way, it's fresh in my mind when I end up hating the new version. I'll need the geek ammunition for my inevitable rant.
I'm glad to say that the film still holds up, even after a decade and a half.
First things first, this movie came out almost 24 years ago, long before... Read more

I've become convinced that the reason that the humans of 'Attack the Titan' (or Shingeki no Kyojin) keep losing is because they just won't shut up. Whenever there's a crisis, members of the Survey Corp. will invariably spend 20 minutes discussing how they feel about the situation, often with shiny quivering anime eyes, before taking any action. For some reason, the slack-faced Titans will patiently wait for said soldiers to finish their histrionic discussions and then promptly proceed to defeat... Read more
