Iron Man 3 Game Day Commercial

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968.

“Iron by “Iron Man 3” is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures and DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing and Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Charles Newirth, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, Alan Fine, Stan Lee and Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film releases May 3, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Kickstarter project: Hyper Heroes

Kickstarter project: Hyper Heroes

Teenage life, school typecasting, bully attacks, unrequited love… and hyperpowers. Or at least some of the above.

Hyper Heroes is a light-hearted, all-ages (but thoughtful) superhero comic, with teen hijinks, good-natured comedy and the occasional superhero fight. You can read it here! Oh, and it’s a Kickstarter project too – which means you can help support it financially and, in exchange, become a hyperhero yourself. That is, if the project succeeds.

hyper

According to the project’s Kickstarter page, the Hyper Heroes comic started “…as a school hobby, where it gathered a huge cult following of about 9 people… But hey, they were the story’s protagonists. Because that’s the point of hyper heroes: the reader is the protagonist! And we don’t mean it in a “characters the kids can identify with” way. We’re literally saying our readers are the characters. As in, we take your (or your kid’s or your loved ones’) face and mannerisms and put them in a comic book hero, and we give the character skills and special powers based on your real-life strengths and qualities. And yes, that character then has a starring role in a superhero story.”

So, this comic lets its readers have an actual role in the story as a superhero. And if there’s an ongoing Kickstarter project, then you’re still on time to join. Yes, this means you can go over there and ask for your own hyperhero right now.

We all know mainstream superhero comics have very little space for new names; but the indie comics market isn’t crazy about non-satiric superhero stories either. This means even getting Hyper Heroes to where it is now has been a challenge from day one. However, this hasn’t stopped them from getting there… and they’re still going at it.

Their next step is to make the Hyper Heroes Kickstarter project into a reality. And there’s where you can help. Simply visit the project and, if you like it, back it. And become a comic book hero!
