Avengers 2 here we come......


If you check out images for the Ant-Man film there are a couple that have him linked to the Avengers film. Marvel have not announced any future follow-ups for this film, will he be included in Avengers: Infinity War. Suppose we will have to wait for the end of the film to see what little teaser there is as to the future

Like many people on these forums I am of an age where I have parents who grew up during WW2.

As a child I used to read these comics.

Later in my schooling I got over the idea of war as there was still some risk, at that time, that I may be drafted/conscripted for the war in Vietnam. Luckily (for me) conscription was stopped here before my name came up in the queue........

I was bizarrely chuffed to recently realise that Commando, was still in print 8)

In a way, the whole idea of it seems wrong nowadays........yet I bought a copy, only partly for me, but also to share with my son.

It's still an enjoyable read, but will the kids now, get it? Who still buys it?

Yeah; it really amazes me, with the glory of 50 years of hindsight, that I was into those comics. :shock:

This is probably my favourite graphic novel, brilliant title, brilliant story, brilliant art. Seems to me that the first X=Men movie was lossly based on this but could have been so much better if they had stuck more to the theme

WD, most of the X-men films have used plots lifted from Chris Claremont stories, sometime literally, yet as far as I know he's never been given any credit or paid for these,

Pretty shocking really & he's not the only one, huge court claim coming up ?

That.... is actually a pretty spot on description! :o :lol:

Those are pretty much the things Kaz loves! :lol:
