Over the edge

More Lemmings.... Those damn weasels.

Caught F4 on the way home. Based on the previews I saw, I thought it would be kinda lame. It was fantastic. More amazing than Spider-Man, more incredible than The Hulk, more uncanny than the X-Men, more incredible than The Incredibles. Okay, it wasn't all that. It was a good flick with some good action, lots of good graphics and a good job with character interaction. I didn't know anything about F4 before hand so I couldn't see any spots where they broke with the standard background. I expect that F4 didn't get their start with Dr. Doom, but here they did.

Volleyball on Wednesday will be a double header. I hope it cools off by then. I've also got a game on Thursday and another make up game at some point.

Our insurance statement came today. Our two cars cost $2272 per year. We raised the collision deductable to 1000, which will save us $255 per year. If we can keep from killing either car for 2 years we will have saved enough to cover the difference.

Hey, we saw F4 yesterday too. I liked it, especially The Invisible Woman when that crowd was running after her. Johnny Storm is so doable too (He's from Sudbury, MA).

I don't really read F4 that much, but I think in the comic book, Dr. Doom didn't have any powers, I think it was all his suit. I don't think he was supposed to be in the space station either. Also, they were right about him having a small scar, but in the comic book, that little scar drove him mad, so he decided to wear the mask (he thought he looked disgusting with the scar). When he put on the mask, it burnt his whole face off though.

My only complain was that the final battle sequence should've been longer.

I did like the human torch character. They did a really good job with the personalities.

You are quite right. Dr Doom was already a character in his own right, leader of the nation of Latveria. I don't think he showed up until issue 2, 3, or 4... but still early on.
