Did You Know?


The "Bartholomeus saga postola" (Saga of Bartholomew the Apostle) is a Christian saga from the thirteenth or fourteenth century, depicting the life of Bartholomew the Apostle. In the text, Bartholomew captures a demon who was posing as a god. The unnamed demon claims to be in service of Queen Hell, and mentions a war between Queen Hell and Jesus. According to the text, Jesus (who was killed on a cross, but did not die in battle) was sendt to Queen Hell's realm, but managed to defeat her and escape. "Queen Hell" is evidently Hel/Hela, and the text depicts her as Queen in a Christian underworld. Indicating that the Christianized Norse people had not stopped believing in her. See more »

We Are About To Find Out If Thor The God Thunder Really Exists Or Not
12 October 2019 | by larsenmarkezSee all my reviews

We are about to find out.

They turned Thor into a loser who is constantly delivering gags. I am glad they satisfied the fie-year-olds who are Marvel's audience, but anyone who is serious should read the comic books instead.
