Spider-Man Peter Parker dies in final issue

Spider-Man Peter Parker dies, spiderman death, peter parker death

The final issue of Marvel Comics' The Amazing Spider-Man was published Wednesday. Peter Parker, the man behind the mask for 50 years, dies in a battle with his nemesis, Doctor Octopus.

Peter Parker, the New York City high school student who was bitten by a radioactive spider and turned to the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man, died Wednesday after his mind was mysteriously transplanted into the body of his terminally ill arch-nemesis Doctor Octopus.

Parker’s death was confirmed in the 700th and final issue of Marvel Comics’ The Amazing Spider-Man, which will be discontinued after 50 years of publication. His age was unknown.

All parties involved maintain that the changes are quite permanent, and next month, the saga begins anew with the release of “The Superior Spider-Man” #1, with the Doc, Otto Octavius, stepping into the Spidey suit.

Otto believes that with the combination of his intelligence and Parker’s inherited memories and spider powers, he can be an uber-Spider-Man. He can live Parker’s life better than Peter could from fighting crime to getting back together with on-again, off-again girlfriend Mary Jane Watson.

When issue #700 was leaked early, fan reaction both positive and negative went into overdrive, with a few posted death threats directed at the issue’s writer, Dan Slott.

Facebook New Aps, Posts that disappear

I'm so glad that the world didn't end as predicted by some wackos! Check out the new app for facebook for sending secrete message or photos that disappear after a few seconds.

Facebook New Aps, Posts that disappear

Social networking site Facebook has launched a new app for iOS called Poke on Friday which erases pictures and messages within seconds of being sent. Using the social network’s “Poke” feature in order to send short text, picture and video messages as well as the more traditional poke. Users have the option of adding their location to each poke, as well as sending each message to multiple recipients at once.

Unlike traditional Facebook messaging, users can specify how long the message will be displayed before being destroyed. Each poke can be displayed for 1, 3, 5 or 10 seconds before being removed from the app entirely, and the app wil notify the sender if any recipients take a screenshot. Anyone concerned about potentially unwanted or inappropriate messages can block and report users from within the Settings menu.

The new app is similar to Snapchat, an app which is popular with younger age users, and which has gained a reputation as a tool for sending risque images. It also has similar message expiry and screenshot detection features. Pandodaily reported that Snapchat sees 50 million photos sent a day, and it would seem that Facebook sensed an opportunity to offer a similar feature to its billion or so active users, putting the app together in just under two weeks.

Unlike Snapchat which is available on iOS and Android, Poke is currently limited to those on Apple devices, with no word of whether a dedicated Android app is coming or not. Poke takes Facebook’s iOS app count to five, two of which are iPad-optimised, compared to only two on the Android platform.

Tragic event in Connecticut

My heart goes out to all the families who lost loved ones in the shooting at Elementary School Newtown, Connecticut


On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children and 6 staff, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the Sandy Hook village of Newtown, Connecticut, and then killed himself. The school shooting occurred after he had shot and killed his mother, a volunteer at the school, at their nearby Newtown home. It was the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

After shooting his mother Nancy Lanza, age 54, Adam drove her car to the school. The killing of his mother at their house made the overall death toll 27, in the day's rampage, not counting Adam. His older brother Ryan Lanza was mistakenly identified as the shooter in early reports by media organizations, and was later voluntarily questioned by the New Jersey Police, the Connecticut State Police, and FBI, though he was not considered a suspect or taken into custody. Ryan's identification was found on Adam Lanza's body.

Navy Seals in hot water for Giving Secrets to EA for Video Games

Medal of Honor: Warfighter,

The members of Seal Team Six (team on Osama bin Laden mission) are in hot water for allegedly giving classified information to video game company Electronic Arts, to make their war games more realistic.

The seven members of Seal Team Six have been disciplined for giving away classified information to the video game company Electronic Arts (EA) to make their war-themed games more realistic, according to CBS news.

It also reported that Seal Team Six was employed for two days as paid consultants on the new game "Medal of Honor: Warfighter," recently released.

EA has a reputation for developing extremely realistic war games. In the company's marketing, it boasts that it hires real commandos, both active and retired, to help achieve such an effect. The seven members of Seal Team Six are are currently still on active duty, and CBS reports that four members that recently transferred out of the team are also under investigation for their roles with the video game maker.

The Seals are being disciplined for giving away classified information to the makers of the game, which had been entrusted to them by the U.S. Navy. The Seals' careers are now reportedly in jeopardy. The seven members have so far all received official letters of reprimand, which effectively removes any chances of promotion. They also had half their pay revoked for two months, CBS reports.

With Marvel Comics new "NOW" initiative, the publisher's heroes and villains will  hit "the refresh button" instead of a reboot.

According to Alonso the move is a result of the calamitous events of the best-selling and just-concluded mini-series "Avengers vs. X-Men" that featured the return of the fabled Phoenix force and the death of some key characters (Charles Xavier).

"All of the stories take place in the aftermath of `Avengers Vs. X-Men.' New creative teams _ each of which are deeply invested in their titles _ will take your favorite titles in bold new directions,"

Walking Dead Season 3

Walking Dead Season 3 October 14 premiere of the show is going to be action packed and a high body count as the survivors makes their way to the prison.

Funny Video

 This video is pretty damn funny. The sly guy pays for his drink by putting the 3 euros far apart for the bartender. One day he came in and pay a 5 euros bill and the bartender thinks that this is his day for revenge. The bartender placed the 2 euro change very far apart at the both ends of the bar. Instead of getting the coin, the Sly Guy put down another euro and place another order.

Captain America the new US president

Captain America, Marvel comics, US president

Wow, I really like this cover of the new Captain America! Marvel Comics shows super hero Captain America being sworn in as president of the United States in Issue 16 of "The Ultimates." The sentinel of liberty will move into the White House in the pages of “The Ultimates,” a series set in the Ultimate Comics universe where America is riven by factionalism, out-of-control anti-mutant hysteria and outright secession. Rogers will take the oath of office in issue No. 16, due out in October.

I wonder what's his stand on the US Economy.... is he a Democrat or a Republican?

Nissan rolls out Chinese brand's new model

BEIJING (AP) — Following a temporary dip in sales during anti-Japanese protests last month, Nissan Corp. has unveiled the second model from its new low-priced Chinese brand Venucia.

The compact R50 hatchback will sell for as little as 67,800 yuan ($10,760), Nissan announced Saturday. It is part of a wave of new models by Japanese, U.S. and European automakers that are aimed at China's growing low-priced market outside major cities.

Venucia was created by Nissan and its Chinese joint venture partner, Dongfeng Motor Co. Its first model, the D50 sedan, debuted in April.

China overtook the United States as the world's biggest auto market by vehicles sold in 2009 but sales growth has slowed and some major cities are imposing restrictions on ownership to curb traffic and smog. That has prompted global automakers to look for new ways to tap the faster-growing low end of the Chinese market in smaller cities and the countryside.

General Motors Co. also has created a low-priced Chinese brand, Baojun, with a local partner. Germany's Daimler Benz is developing an electric car brand with Chinese automaker BYD.

China is a key part of Nissan's global strategy announced last year to focus on selling to faster-growing developing countries and reducing reliance on the sluggish U.S. market.

The R50 is aimed at first-time Chinese buyers outside more prosperous eastern cities, said Kimiyasu Nakamura, president of Dongfeng. He said that the car goes on sale in late September and that the company expects to sell 10,000 units per month.

Nakamura said Nissan held down the cost by designing the R50 in China and using mostly Chinese-manufactured components.

Nissan suffered a temporary dip in sales when protests erupted in China last month over a dispute between Beijing and Tokyo about ownership of an uninhabited group of islands in the East China Sea, Nakamura said. He said he had no details of how sales compared with normal periods.

The Dark Knight Rises, batman, catwoman, Colorado
(AP) — Warner Bros. Pictures says it has canceled appearances by the cast and filmmakers of the movie "The Dark Knight Rises" in Mexico and Japan after a shooter killed 12 people and injured at least 50 Friday in a Colorado theater during a midnight premiere of the newest Batman movie.

Marvel Comics' Astonishing X-Men

Marvel Comics' Astonishing X-Men features the Marvel's first gay marriage between longtime X-Man Northstar and his civilian boyfriend, Kyle. After pairing up the couple in 2009, Marvel is officially tying their knot in June's Astonishing X-Men #51.

Marvel has a lot of LGBT characters, many of whom are in committed relationships, this is the first one to go all the way. The comic industry's number-one publisher has always reflected America's cultural and political developments. Northstar (Jean-Paul Beaubier), solidifies his position as Marvel's premiere gay superhero. Introduced in 1979, his sexuality was only inferred until 1992 in Alpha Flight #106. The outing spurred an unexpected frenzy, conjuring multiple editions of Alpha Flight #106 and a media blitz that hit faster than Northstar at maximum velocity. The character also adopted a baby with AIDS, mentored a gay mutant named Anole, and even wrote a book about his experience as a gay mutant, titled Born Normal; it's hard to imagine how this guy made time for fighting crime.

Iron Man 3 Armored Suits

The first official photo from the set of "Iron Man 3" was released today, and it shows Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) reunited with his seven armored suits.

The still shows Downey facing his collection of Iron Man suits, which has been expanded since the last movie. In "Iron Man 2," his shop only featured four suits, but now it includes the ones he wears in "The Avengers." 

Mark I:

This is the suit Tony Stark built out of spare weapons parts to escape imprisonment. He abandoned it in the desert where it was picked up by his captors, but he was apparently able to get it back for his collection.

Mark II:

Tony only ever took his silver prototype version out for a test flight (and crash landing). In the second movie, Stark's friend James "Rhodey" Rhodes took the suit and added on weapons to become War Machine. In the new photo, it looks like Tony stripped it back down to its shiny basics.

Mark III:

The first red-and-gold armor. The first cut of "Iron Man" didn't have the scene where Tony's suit gets assembled piece-by-piece around him, but after the success of "Transformers," the studio handed over more money to add in some additional high-tech gadgetry. In the new photo, the suit is still battle-damaged from Stark's climatic fight with Iron Monger.

Mark IV:

Tony developed a more streamlined suit for the Stark Expo (but it's equally good for picking up doughnuts). In this shot, Robert Downey Jr. is in the full costume, but usually during filming he only wears the top half for the sake of mobility. The mechanical legs are then added in digitally.

Mark V:

The silver and red suitcase armor he used to fight against Whiplash in Monaco during the Grand Prix. This was actually inspired by the original comic books, which showed Tony carting around his suit in a briefcase. But in the books the case didn't transform; the suit was simply carried inside.

Mark VI:

Stark wore this suit with the redesigned with a triangular chest repulsor in both "Iron Man 2" and "The Avengers." Tony uses clues left by his father Howard Stark to develop a new element to power his chest reactor. This is a reference to vibranium, the extremely rare metal Howard used to create Captain America's shield.

Mark VII:

Stark's most recent suit is the bulked-up, three-color armor he used for the final battle against Loki and the Chitauri army in "The Avengers." Writer/director Joss Whedon told Empire Magazine that he insisted that Tony's suit go back to the circular light in the chest. He said, "I'm a classicist. The circle has meaning, the triangle does not."
