The Captains Marvel

With the new Captain Marvel movie (part of the MCU) with Brie Larson in the title role, we decided to grace you with this cool image of several Captains called Marvel… From left to right: Mar-Vell in his original green and white Kree uniform, Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel in her revealing sexy uniform, Carol Danvers again, in her other revealing, sexy Ms. Marvel Uniform, and then we see Mar-Vell again in his classic red and blue uniform.   Carol Danvers (the current holder of the Marvel comics character name of Captain Marvel)  is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by comic book writer Roy Thomas and  artist Gene Colan, Major Carol Danvers first appeared as a member of the United States Air Force in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (March 1968) and debuted as the first incarnation of Ms. Marvel in Ms. Marvel #1 (January 1977) after a fusion of alien Kree and human genes gives her superhuman powers, which occurred in Captain Marvel #18 (November 1969). Debuting in the Silver Age of comics, the character was featured in a self-titled series in the late 1970s before becoming associated with superhero teams the Avengers and the X-Men. The character has also been known as Binary, Warbird, and Captain Marvel at various points in her superhero career. She reluctantly took the name of Captain Marvel only after her friend and mentor, Captain America, convinced Danvers that she needed to continue the legacy of the late Kree Captain Marvel. Due to her long history in Marvel Comics, Carol Danvers has been highly regarded. Danvers has been labeled “Marvel’s biggest female hero,” a “feminist icon,” as “quite possibly Marvel’s mightiest Avenger,” She was ranked twenty-ninth in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics” list,[4] and was ranked #11 on IGN’s “Top 50 Avengers”. Marvel Studios announced a live-action film featuring the character, titled Captain Marvel and starring Brie Larson, which is scheduled for release in 2019.

Super Heroes that Should Have Their Own Pokies Game

Super Heroes that Should Have Their Own Pokies Game   Super heroes are literally dominating entertainment in the past several years. Ever since Spiderman swung to the top of the box office back in early 2000’s the super hero genre burst. We are now seeing new movies being released on a yearly basis. Marvel and DC Comics are having a go each year with the Avengers and Justice League respectively. Each includes a new roster of superheroes that get their own movies. This in itself helped established a new rule in online gambling – superhero themed slots. A great many pokies have been developed that feature: Superman, Batman, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Wolverine.  And other trade mark names that have brought millions of players in the search for that sweet, sweet jackpot price. Superhero pokies are not a fad – they are amongst the highest paying progressives on offer. Their design is excellent, they offer a ton of bonuses and mini games that will keep any player (even non fans) entertained and engaged and they are also quite cool on their own. It is very easy to make a list about them since they are considered the crème de la crop of slots. We are however getting a tad bored of the same old same old offerings from Marvel and DC – here’s a list of our own fan favorites that we feel can kick some ass as a pokie inspiration – oh and, yes, be prepared for us nerding up the place a little bit.   Captain Marvel With a movie slated to release in a few years, Captain Marvel is more than it meets the eye. As the go to female super hero of the Marvel Universe, this isn’t just the Marvel name slapped to a generic super hero. She’s part of the Avengers and a very powerful individual with cosmic powers – also a captain of a space ship and a person with incredible strength and prowess. Captain Marvel Why should she get a super hero themed slot? Because we have too few slots with female characters that are represented fairly. Most are either over sexualized or inferior to their male counter parts. Captain Marvel is a real heroine which can own the game – from the start to the finish, and a video slot with her as the titular character is sure to turn heads.   The Flash / Quicksilver Barry Allan or fastest man alive (yes, Quicksilver may have something to say about that) is one of the founding members of the Justice League and a superhero that is all about speed. Flash He is perfect for a new brand of slots – one that contains plethora of mini games that require speed to complete. See, The Flash is all about running fast, so fast in fact that he can go back in time and mess up the future (it happens, you know). Thanks to his amazing speed, the slot can utilize time mechanics and other interesting ideas to make the Flash sweat some more for that jackpot.   Guardians of the Galaxy The smash hit by Marvel from last year was one of the best things that do not cater to the rule “well known is enough to be good”. Thanks to the excellent directing and story structure set by director James Gunn and the performances by Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the rest of the Guardians, we got an obscure team of misfits that are the ultimate super heroes in a galaxy, far far away. The premise of a slot bearing the name Guardians of the Galaxy holds so much potential – from different galaxies, villains to several different characters that can be in the leading role.   Dr. Doom Dr Doom We are going in a different direction with the favorite villain in the world of Fantastic Four, X-men and the Marvel universe in general for a good reason. Basically, in his own right, Dr Doom (despite his ominous name) is considered the good guy. What is cool about him is his vision for humanity – he believes that the only way for humanity to actually survive the constant onslaught of space invaders and alien monstrosities is to unite under his banner. A Doom-themed slot would be so badass thanks to the origin of Dr Doom and his trade mark look and sheer ruthlessness, not to mention the amount of doombots and the opportunity to face off against some familiar names such as the Fantastic 4.   Super Mario Another different choice but with a good reason – the most famous video game plumber is a super hero in his own right. Nintendo is already keen on joining the mobile market, so the opportunity to create a video slot is there. We don’t need to sell you a slot that involves Super Mario, do we? He’s only the most famous video game character of all time, with  hundreds of titles and millions of sold copies – not to mention he is instantly recognizable thanks to his voice and persona.

5 Reasons Why Everyone Loves Super Hero Slots

5 Reasons Why Everyone Loves Super Hero Slots   We all have a soft spot for superheroes. It is quite easy to be smitten by the possibility and imagination of having super powers. To be an: all powerful alien who can fly; have super strength and nobility of Superman; the superior detective mind and ninja skills of Batman; or the uber- intelligence and suits Tony Stark makes to become Iron Man. It is no wonder why this culture permeates modern societies, even if their origin dates all the way back in the last century. Super heroes are currently wiping the floor with any other genres in the film industry and with good reason. Marvel have been expanding their universe with thoroughly enjoyable and exciting flicks each year and DC has been struggling to get their own rooster to boot. With that being said, both have had excellent collaboration with the world of gambling. After all, the best inspiration for a high quality themed slot game comes from the super hero genre. If you want to have a look and play super hero slots at sites listed here, just follow the link. You may then ask: how come superhero slots attract so many people? Even the older ones or the more obscure like Blade or the Fantastic 4 are well loved by slots fans. Well, there are numerous reasons but we will note the top 5. Let’s start:   The theme All right this is pretty obvious – most people love super heroes. They like the opportunity to enter the world of a super hero, even if it is in a video slot. We already mentioned that super heroes help us elevate our own stature in the world and a video slot makes that even more true. You just cannot beat that superior feeling of helping Captain America thwart the efforts of Red Skull and winning a bonus along the way. It is pretty great 🙂 Movie tie-ins What we like even more than the theme of a super hero is its real-life counterpart (OK, movie-counterpart). Thanks to modern technology, video slots can use clips from the movie showing all the action and voice work. For instance, you can have a slot incorporating the voices and performances of Robert Downey Junior as Iron Man or Scarlett Johansen as Black Widow to enhance the experience and help the slot be even more exciting.   The Looks Like we mentioned previously, thanks to newer technology, video slots are incorporating more and more elements from the super hero movie source material, adding short clips, voices and more to enrich the experience. But the great design that hooks players doesn’t stop there – a whole slew of colors, menus and distinct effects are used to make the games stand out from the competition. You just KNOW when you are playing a super hero inspired slot because it feels “super’!     Progressive design Superhero slots have managed to garner much attention to non-comic book fans thanks to their excellent rewards. Most of them are progressives, and some of them are even amongst the highest rated out there (like The Dark Knight with millions in jackpots). What also helped was the extensive use of mini games and extra bonuses that borrowed from the source material to bring about even more interactivity that is rewarded to the player. Something to always keep in mind when playing super hero slots.   Variety and quality Thanks to the huge amount of super heroes from both Marvel and DC Comics (and others) we are sure to see more and more super heroes getting the slots treatment. You can pretty much find all the popular ones from the MCU and DCU though more and more are being represented from popular video games (yes, these are super heroes too).
