The Avengers--In Theatres on Saturday!

"If we can't save the world, we can darn well avenge it." (Well, I vote for saving it.)
"And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born—to fight the foes no single super hero could withstand! Through the years, their roster has prospered, changing many times, but their glory has never been denied! Heed the call, then—for now, the Avengers Assemble!"
—Prologue from The Avengers

Number One
Stan Lee, creator of innumerable comic book heroes, put together the Avengers as a team of superheroes. I am not an expert on this, but I have always enjoyed Batman. If you are really into this, you could Google 'Fosaken Toys' and a guy named Sean can find lots of good comic book stuff for you. 


You may notice just a few heroes from world mythology, like Thor from the Norse. Folks love heroes.

The following is a sort of home-grown site of world mythology, and it is kind of fun.

I think that literature is as literature does, and there are many outstanding storytellers who happen to spin their tales in comic books. If there are good themes, characters, and a dynamic story is there--hey it's literature to me! Is it great? Let's give it time.
