  I would not call myself a big Spider-Man fan. Sure, I did read my fair share of his titles back in the 90’s and I still buy the occasional action figures every once in a while, but my disconnect...

  Today’s review is of a subject near and dear to my heart, IRON TRON!   Well, not really, no. It is actually the latest Iron Man iteration from Marvel Universe Series 5, the Zero Gravity...

  I have to say that I had no knowledge of Abomination prior to the second Hulk movie, from a couple of years ago. I am aware that there were action figures based on the movie designs at the time, but...

  She-Hulk was one of the figures I was most curious about when Hasbro announced her inclusion in Marvel Universe Series 4. Of course, distribution being what it is, she was part of the wave of...

  Sometimes, as a broad-focused collector, I indulge in what has come to be known as “The Long Game”. There are nuances and variations in the way each person plays it, but in a nutshell, you see...

  Well, in my Gray Hulk review I mentioned that at some point in his story, Bruce Banner had a split personality disorder. Well, guess who diagnosed him with that? Why, none other than the subject...

  I have never read a Ghost Rider comic. My exposure to the character is mostly limited to the 200X movies and the rare cameo on the few Marvel Comics titles I read sporadically. That is why the...

  Other than the Green Goblin, there are very few foes of Spider-Man that I recall from the old 1966 TV show.   One of those happens to be Mysterio, the master of illusion and special effects....

  Well, boredom is a pretty nasty beast, especially when it stems from not finding the toys you want at stores. I found myself caught in it’s maw recently, and I ended up walking away from the store...
