Top 10 Character in Guardians of the Galaxy

Top 5 Villains in Guardians of the Galaxy


Here would be my top draft picks for a Marvel character soccer team.   Who would you choose?



1) Magic users- Soccer has no rules against magic.  Meaning who knows what kind of magical chaos could be unleashed during a game.  A magic user for a team would be necessary if just to defend against magic users on the opposing team.  It might also be interesting to field an all magical team if possible.  High on the list of Magic Users would be Dr Strange, Brother Voodoo, Enchantress, Morgana Le Fay, Dr Doom, Lorelei, Sister Grimm, Shaman, Magik, Baron Mordo, Wiccan, The Scarlet Witch.



2) Telepathy/Telekinesis - Soccer has no rules against Telekinesis or Telepathy making Charles Xavier, Emma Frost, Mastermind, Mantis,  X-Man Nate Grey, Mr Sinister, Cosmo, Moon Dragon, Purpleman and Jean Grey almost necessary.  If nothing else you need a telepath for defense against other telepaths.While it may seem weird taking someone physically unable to kick a ball, Charles Xavier could win a game if no one is able to stop his mind control.



3) Quicksilver - With his amazing super speed it would be hard to overlook the mutant speedster Quicksilver.  He could technically play all the positions at the field at once.  He could threaten offensively while near instantly returning back to defense. 



4) Sue Richards the Invisible Woman - She can create invisible force fields to hide  the ball, stop the ball, hide a player.  Yes that is crazy she would be a very difficult player to go up against.

 

5) Nightcrawler - His ability to teleport plus his insane agility would make Nightcrawler a very strong soccer player.  He may be one of the few characters who could counter the insane speed of Quicksilver or the Force Fields of Sue Richards.

6) Spiderman - With some of the highest reflexes and agility in the Marvel Universe Spiderman would make a phenomenal goalie but could play a variety of positions as well if needed.

7) Beast - Strength, Agility, Speed, Reflexes it would be hard to beat Beast as a goalie.

8) Black Panther - With his super strength, agility, speed, intelligence and leadership characteristics T'Challa would make a very solid all around soccer player

9) Mr Fantastic - The guy can stretch and stretch and stretch.  He could play a variety of positions I think it would be interesting to either have him as a goalie or on defense.

10) Other interesting characters Banshee/Siryn could potentially use sonic screams to move the ball, Captain America for his athleticism and leadership, Iceman because who knows what he is capable of doing. The Inhuman Medusa could do some crazy things with her hair and hey haird does not equal hands.


Not strongly considered
The Superstrong Behmothes - Sentry, Juggernaut, Hulk, She Hulk, Guardian, Blackbolt, Thor and all of the Asgardians may make tempting picks but be warned.  These characters are so strong they may have difficulty kicking the ball inbounds.  It might be tempting to take one as an enforcer but this is not hockey and if they act out they will quickly find themselves with a red card and out of the game.

Also Wolverine may seem like a good pick but I tend to think he would get handsy.

Top 5 Villains in Guardians of the Galaxy 


Watch both of the Guardians of the Galaxy Trailers! HERE 




New Guardians of the Galaxy -Cherry BombTrailer

Cherry Bomb!!!
This may be my favorite trailer yet from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.  This one has Starlord explaining to Rocket why they need to save the galaxy.  We also Ronan's forces enter Xandar's airspace and the Nova Corps respond by apparently sending the Guardians to stop him.  Rhoman Dey the Nova Corps Centurion played by John C. Reilly is seen urging Nova Prime (Glen Close) to use the Guardians who are deemed criminals by the Nova Corps to save their world of Xandar.

Music
This trailer is to another song on Starlord's walkman,  This time it is to the Runways 1976 hard rock hit "Cherry Bomb."  It is pretty amazing.  If the trailers are any indication of the soundtrack for the movie it is going to be as amazing as a talking raccoon.

2) Ronan the Accuser - The Kree's version of a judge, jury and executioner.   In some way Ronan will be working for Thanos.  It is not clear why.  He will likely be the most powerful villain that the Guardians face directly.

3) Nebula- Ruthless spacepirate.  Nebula will also be an agent of Thanos.  She will have been trained by Thanos along with the hero Gamora.  She will share a deep and messed up history with Gamora.

Top 5 Best Horror COSPLAYs at Denver Comic Con

Top 5 best horror and scary COSPLAYs at Denver Comic Con

There was a great horror booth at comic con that had a guy that appeared in an episode of X-files.  There was also Max Brooks, Bruce Campbell, Michael Rooker, Chandler Riggs and a whole slew of Zombie related guests.  Perhaps, more awesome than that was the horror based COSPLAY.

Jigsaw, Chucky and Freddy wowza and all great COSPLAYS



 



Comic Con began on Friday the 13th so of course there needed to be a Jason Vorhees



The big Triangle head dude from Resident Evil walked by me a few times.  There was also a massive presence of Umbrella Corporation swat teams.  Which should have made me feel better but those guys tend to die faster than Red Shirts.
 

Look out

Honorable Mention
Ok So not a COSPLAY but the statues at the WETA booth were both amazing and intimidating!  Also I saw Star Trek Red Shirt Zombies and that is a terrifying thought.  If all of the dead red shirts become zombies the world is DOOMED!

Galactus:
I am not sure how this guy even walked around but he did.  It looks like he used some form of Stilts.  I actually liked this Galactus more than the crappy cloud thing Fox used in the movie Fantastic 4 Rise of the Silver Surfer.
Full on amazing costume.

BioShock Big Daddy and Little Sister
I can't find a picture of this costume but hopefully someone has pictures.  This was the most complete real looking Big Daddy I have ever seen.  The Little Sister was also perfect.

Mr Freeze
There was an awesome Mr Freeze that I also need to find a picture of.

UPDATE:  Thank you Thomas Burgett for these awesome pictures!!! Look at how phenomenal this is.  It is a flat out amazing COSPLAY Costume.  Thomas feel free to share any comments about making it or your experience at Denver Comic Con.  I am sure everyone would love to know more about your experience as Mr Freeze.
More Thomas Burgett Freeze Pictures!







Game of Thrones
Jon Snow/ Daeneries/ Kal Drogo I saw them all here and need to find pictures.

Daeneries and Khal Drogo

Jango Fett - Star Wars Bounty Hunters
This pair of Cosplayers had an awesome Star War Bounty Hunter themed costume.  They somehow managed to get around because I saw them multiple times but each time they were surrounded by a crowd taking their picture.

 Gargoyles Creator Weisman was at the Con so it is fitting that there is also a Goliath there.
Goliath and Elisa costumes were spot on. Laura who is Elisa gave the link below to check out more pictures of their awesome COSPLAY!
More Goliath and Elisa
What really made this COSPLAY choice even more awesome was the fact that the Gargoyle team was having a reunion at Denver Comic Con and their creator Weisman was on hand.  It made me very happy that the Gargoyle got some COSPLAY love.  It was a great cartoon right up there with Batman the animated series in the 90s cartoons.  While its quality was as high as Batman it gets extra points for being a purely original series, which is very rare!  I met Greg Weisman (Creator of Gargoyles) briefly to get an Amazing Spiderman he wrote signed.  Greg was very nice and down to earth guy.  Hopefully, the Gargoyle Cosplayers had an even better experience.  Laura feel free to share any stories you have, I am very interested.





Dr Who
There were a lot of Dr Who themed costumes.  I saw a variety of just about everything including a Tardis.

X-Men
There were a lot of Great X-Men based Cosplays.  Below we have a whole X Team.

I noticed a lot more X-23 Cosplays this year and all of them were awesome!  That character seems to be catching on with girls which is sweet because she is a great character.

Justice League - The movie may be a ways a way but the character of the Justice League were in force at Denver Comic Con


DC Comic Book Characters at Denver Comic Con, 2014






Hobbit / LOTR Cosplays

Tolkien Elves at Denver Comic Con, 2014


Trek Costumes
There were quite a few.  One that sticks out is a group of red shirt Zombies that was pretty funny.  Also a Trek version of Hulk.




StarWars Costumes - 501 Legion
The 501 legion is just full on amazing.  They are group that dresses up as Starwars characters and also does things like build droids.  That whole area was pretty amazing they had props and back drops and fully functioning R2 D2s.  I will try to dig out some pictures so I can do that whole group justice.

Hellboy:
My daughter just reminded me of these.
I saw three great Hellboys, one was a man, one was  a little boy and one was a girl.  All three rocked!  I need to find pictures of these as well.

Hawkman and Hawkwoman
Another awesome couple Cosplay that I need to find pictures of.

Disney:
There was an awesome Frozen princess team that were doppelgangers of the cartoon

Ironman:
There were a couple great Ironman and Warmachine COSPLAYS.  One had full on electronic lights and everything.  I need to find pictures of them.  I am not sure if they are the same group that came last year or different.

Other COSPLAYS
Others...Some of these may be from 2013 I will try to update with 14 as find pictures.
There were tons.
