Face front, true believers! Class is in session! Let’s call this “Doctor Strange 101”, an introduction to the newest member of the “Marvel movie-verse”, although, as you’ll soon learn, the sorcerer supreme is one of the oldest heroes. So, to get you up to speed before heading to the multiplex, we’re giving you a top ten list of facts about the “master of mystic arts”. First, a look at his lineage….
1. Doctor Strange Has Lots Of “Magic Hero” Predecessors Let’s go back over a 100 years, when magicians where a popular part of live entertainment. Many real-life stage performers like Houdini and Blackstone branched out into the printed page, starring in fictional exploits via booklets called “penny dreadfuls” which became the lurid pulp novels. In 1931 a radio show presented the adventures of the mysterious “Chandu the Magician” (one big fan was young Stan Lee). Edmund Lowe battled master »

Dr. Strange, 1978.
Directed by Philip DeGuere
When evil being The Ancient One sends sinister sorceress Morgan LeFay to Earth to destroy the Sorcerer Supreme, the long held sorcerer must train brilliant surgeon Stephen Strange as his successor to fight the darkness…
Almost as if they planned it this way, by some cosmic fate from the astral plane, the first Dr. Strange movie has at long last arrived on DVD, after being released briefly on VHS in the 80’s and 90’s. What’s that? You didn’t even know there *was* an original adaptation of Marvel’s strangest comic? Honestly, that’s not a surprise; it’s only really thanks to the recent Benedict Cumberbatch-starring McU movie, much like many of Marvel’s less famous heroes, that the Sorcerer Supreme is being put on the map, but remember – Marvel »

A little over a week since I had the chance to ask Stan Lee a question and wouldn’t you know it, I’m still jacked that I had a chance to speak with him. The man is a legend. One of the first cartoons I watched growing up was Spider-man And His Amazing Friends which Stan narrated for season 2. From there, it was The Incredible Hulk with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, arguably the greatest superhero show in television history. Stan’s creations have been a constant in my life since my earliest memories. The chance to speak with him is a memory I’ll never forget.
With that, I wanted to spend this week reading some of my favorite Stan Lee stories. What made his work stand out where others from his era aren’t as well known? For one, I’d say his instincts on what make characters tick was dead on. »

Throw a stone at your local multiplex and you’ll more than likely hit someone on their way into a comic book movie. When I grew up I had to make do with Nicholas Hammond as Spider Man and Bill Bixby as The Incredible Hulk. We didn’t have any of that CGI sorcery in those days, you know. Today’s audience is treated to a smorgasbord of costumed cinematic mayhem every other week, be they acne-ridden teens or life-ridden adults.
Such is the hold that Marvel and DC exert on the box office the non-spandexed competition is squeezed out like a frankfurter from the bun of an overloaded hot dog. 1989’s Batman changed the rules of filmic conquest, and since then studios and indies alike have wanted a bite out of that super-powered pie. The solution is clear to a lot of filmmakers – if you can’t beat ’em, »
