Iron man vs starscream

Since the dawn of comic book heroes fans have asked each other the unanswerable questions. Who would win in a fight? Wolverine or Hulk? Superman or Thor? Batman or Catman?

Catwoman – New 52

Catwoman issue 1 review DC new 52

The build up to Episode 1

I have really fond memories of the Phantom Menace build up and finally seeing the film. With the Phantom Menace 3D cinema release coming closer I thought I would share some of my memories of the build up to it’s release back in 1999.

I have read countless negative reviews of the film and watched the hilarious Red Letter Media you tube reviews but that hasn’t changed my mind. I still remember how awesome the Phantom Menace was when I first saw it and that I was genuinely surprised to read the bad reviews.
