D-Box Review: The Avengers

by on May 4, 2012 >> MoviesReviews

I’ve been reading comics the majority of my life. Ever since my parents named me after the last son of Krypton I’ve had a strong attachment to comic as a form of entertainment. Whether it was picking up a large bundle of Marvel or DC comics at Costco (where it was cheapest and meant for resale at a news stand) or scrounging through the dollar comic bins at my local comic and trading card post (the long gone Cooper’s Town Comics), comics have always been an escape. Comics can be anything and tell any story the author wants to tell. We’ve had comics about alien invasions, best friends in high school, murder mysteries, impossible to kill super heroes and even cancer. Movies based on comics with all those themes have been made as well. Everything from Scott Pilgrim to American Splendor to Richie Rich. And of course there are the greats like Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, The Mighty Thor, The Invincible Iron Man and now they’re finally together in a film and The Avengers is the most beautifully bombastic thrill rides you can take in theaters this year. Keep reading as I praise this glorious film that is all things nerds love.
