Jacob Kurtzberg (aka Jack Kirby), a Jewish veteran of WW2, would be 100 years old on August 28, 2017. This month we will see a lot from Marvel and DC Comics celebrating his Centennial because he created or co-created many of their great heroes, including (but not limited to):
Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, the original X-Men and Magneto, the Fantastic Four & Doctor Doom, Hulk, Black Panther, Ant-Man and Wasp, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, Silver Surfer, Big Barda and Mister Miracle, Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos, Wonder Woman’s mother Hippolyta, Darkseid, the New Gods, Groot, the Kree, the Skrulls, the Inhumans, and Loki.
if you are a fan of any of these characters, it’s your duty to honor his legacy by opposing nazis and nazism in all forms.
Idk why people tell me “Oh well the Marvel movies aren’t that good” then proceed to point out all the flaws of it. I don’t care. I’m 16 and depressed. I’m not a movie critic man I’m just here for the fun stuff, leave me alone, Dave
Disney have been negotiating with FOX in order to buy “most of the company”, particularly the entertainment assets and leave FOX as essentially a news and sports broadcaster. The news has been particularly exciting for Marvel fans as it means Marvel could possibly regain the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four characters. The talks have reportedly taken place over the last month or so but they are not happening currently. There is “no certainty” that the talks will lead to a deal!
