My Favorite Stan Lee Characters

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s time for part 2 of my Stan Lee tribute. Being a huge comic book fan, I have loved many of his creations throughout the years. This post will be on my favorite of his characters. Now, let’s dive into Stan Lee’s amazing creations!

  • Juggernaut Real Name: Cain Marko Status: Villain Ht: 6’10 Wt: 900 lbs First Appeared: The X-Men #12- The Origin of Professor X (July 1st, 1965) Creators: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby Powers/Abilities: Extraordinary Superhuman strength, Force field, Invulnerability, Superhuman Speed, Telepathy-blocking helmet 

Cain was the bullying stepbrother of Professor X. In his childhood, Cain was always the second favorite child, with his stepdad favoring his own son rather than him. Then, one unfortunate day, Cain set fire to his stepdad’s lab, and he died saving the boy. Many years later, Charles and Cain were drafted into the military, and it was there when he got his powers. After deserting his troops, he stumbled upon a cave, where he found a mystic gem. The gem gave him incredible strength, stamina, and protection, as well as causing a cave in which seemingly killed him. He escaped years later, with a furious temper, and revenge on his mind. He became a constant enemy of the X-Men, and has nearly defeated them on many occasions.

  • Black Panther Real Name: T’Challa Status: King of Wakanda and Hero First Appeared: Fantastic Four #52- Introducing the Sensational Black Panther (July 1st, 1966) Creators: Stan Lee and Jack Kirby Powers/Abilities: Genius-like Intellect, Vibranium suit, Master of multiple martial arts, Superhuman agility, Enhanced senses, Weapons expert, Energy daggers, Anti-metal claws, Energy shield, Invisibility, Multilingual, Superhuman strength, Acute healing factor, Exceptionally Durable, Super speed, Superhuman Stamina

T’Challa was a Wakandan prince whose father was a superpowered monarch known as the Black Panther. The nation of Wakanda is technologically advanced due to the discovery of a mineral called Vibranium. T’Challa’s father used this mineral to empower the society, and tried to keep it under wraps from the rest of the world. Unfortunately, the villainous scientist, Ulysses S. Klaw, broke into Wakanda, and killed the prince’s father. Thinking fast, T’Challa turned Klaw’s sound based weapon against him, destroying his right hand in the process. With no one to rule Wakanda, T’Challa performed the sacred ritual into become Wakanda’s new king. Upon claiming the throne, the prince was given the Heart-shaped Herb, an incredibly powerful item that gives the user significantly enhanced physical capabilities. The Fantastic Four visited Wakanda, and were quickly defeated by T’Challa. The king then explained that he was testing the Superhero team to see if they were capable of taking down Klaw. The team became quick friends with T’Challa, and still team up with him on many missions. He also made friends with Captain America, and helped him take down an imposter. Shortly after, T’Challa joined the Avengers, and became a very powerful team member, while continuing to rule over Wakanda. I highly recommend watching Black Panther to get some more information on this awesome and unique superhero.

Yokai Wednesdays (Every Other Wednesday)

Konichiwa everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more fascinating Yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Otakemaru is an infamous deity of Japanese folklore. He is a kijin; an oni so ridiculously strong that he is also known as a god. He was once considered to be the most fearsome yokai in Japanese history, and is part of the Great Three Yokai. He is depicted as a gigantic demon with a large sword and incredible dark magic.

  • Todaiki are extremely strange creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as human lamp hybrids with candle heads and colorful robes. They have tattoos covering their entire bodies, and can’t speak. The spirits are said to be the bodies of vanished individuals.

Halloween Special!

Hello fellow viewers, and Happy Halloween! I’ve decided to do something very special for the holiday. This post will be about Creepypastas. Creepypastas are internet horror stories that are passed around and occasionally read by people on Youtube. They cover a variety of topics, ranging from urban legends, to psychological horror. I have been listening to them for a very long time, and I’ve decided to share some of my favorites. Now, use the light of your computers as the campfire, and let’s begin the spooky tales!

  • NES Godzilla Creepypasta by Cosbydaf  Genre: Haunted Game 

Haunted video games are a big part of the Creepypasta community, and this is probably the best story. It’s about a boy named Zachary who is given the old NES game as a present. What starts as a normal, enjoyable gaming experience turns very wrong. Zach goes on a journey through corrupted data, bizarre levels, and one of the scariest video game antagonists ever made. It has many crazy twists and turns that will leave you shocked and amazed. I highly recommend this story to everyone, and I post a link of it below. Goji73 does an impeccable job narrating this story, and even adds his own music to enhance the atmosphere. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this story in the comments’ section below.

  

 

 

  • Borrasca by C.K. Walker Genre: Psychological/Violent/Emotional Horror

The Borrasca is an incredibly intense journey of betrayal, sex, horror, controversy, violence, and despair. It has many adult themes, and is strongly intended for mature audiences only. The story is about a boy named Sam who moves to Drisking, Missouri from St. Louis. Sam’s father, a cop, becomes the sheriff of the town, and Sam meets his two best friends. They start having a lot of fun exploring town, until Sam’s friends Kyle, and Kimber, take him to a place called the Triple Tree. This giant treehouse holds a terrible secret about Skinnedmen and a place called the Borrasca. There’s also a extremely disturbing mechanical noise that appears at random during the day. Shit finally hits the fan when Sam’s sister, Whitney goes missing. What starts as a simple missing person case, transforms into something much worse. Walker pulls no punches, and some parts of the story are very hard to read. The writing and setting of the story is absolutely perfect, and I would love to see this tale transformed into a movie. Posted below, is a link to Mr. CreepyPasta’s narration of the story. He’s one of the most popular “Creepytubers”, and his work is always admirable. I highly recommend this story, but be warned, it’s quite unnerving.

  • The Showers by Dylan Sindelar Genre: Paranormal

The Showers is an awesome story with a very surprising ending. It’s about a high school student named Jack, and his Social Studies teacher, Mr. Mays. Jack looks up to this teacher, and he’s very popular with the students. One Halloween day, Mr. Mays tells his class a horror story. It ends up being so well done, and so compelling, that everyone loved it. Jack begins to tell the story to other people, and then finally meets his teacher at a bar. What goes on from there is up to you to find out, however, I will say that its one awesome adventure. Mr. CreepyPasta narrates this awesome story in the link below.

   

Mythical Beasts From Around The World (Wednesdays)

Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday, and I have decided to add more options to the weekly post. Wednesday has usually only focused on mythical creatures of Japan, however I’m going to widen the range to creatures from around the world. This will hopefully give this post more access to that amazing world of mythology. Now, let’s go on a mythical journey of epic proportions!

  • This is about to get creepy! Tiyanak are very disturbing and dangerous creatures of Filipino folklore.  They disguise themselves as newborn babies, and attract innocent people with their crying. (en.wikipedia.org) They don’t reveal their true form until they’re picked up, and when this happens, they attack! (en.wikipedia.org)  Many Tiyanak stories depict this creature differently, however the infant disguise and cry are always mentioned. (en.wikipedia.org) Some tales depict the Tiyanak with sharp teeth and claws, while others have angry eyes and wide mouths. (en.wikipedia.org)

  • Hairy Beast! Domovoi are very strange creatures of Russian folklore. They’re hairy little creatures that can shape shift into the former owner of the house that they live in. (en.wikipedia.org) They protect the house, and will often leave gifts if treated with respect. (en.wikipedia.org)
