Comic book fans are extremely passionate, there’s no doubt about that. And that passion has clearly carried over to the many movies that have been made based on the various comic books. But sometimes…sometimes that passion can take a fan to some pretty extreme places.
Take, for example, 37-year-old Henry Damon from Venezuela. Damon is so incredibly passionate about comics, and especially Captain America comics, that he has always dreamed of becoming Cap’s nemesis Red Skull. And so he decided to have his entire face reconstructed, according to the Daily Mail, in order to transform himself into the Marvel supervillain, who was played by Hugo Weaving in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (seen above). This included the super fan getting his face AND eyes tattooed, inserting implants under his skin to create the right shape, and even having his nose cut off to mimic the Skull’s intimidating look.
You can read more and see images and a video of Damon’s extreme new look here below.
If you have read Captain America comics since you were a wee lad like me, then you are probably excited about Marvel’s newest blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger.
I for one can hardly wait to see the Star Spangled Avenger appear on the silver screen for the first time, mixing it up with his arch enemies Hydra and the Red Skull. While these villains are certainly not to be underestimated, there are quite a few Cap villains that are. We at Geeks of Doom believe that every dog deserves his day so we are proud to present Top 5 Underrated Captain America Villains.
These villains might be underrated for a reason, but someone out there digs them. Continue reading to see who makes the list!
The world loves superhero movies. For every release, it seems that audiences can’t wait to see the next superhero flick. And see it you will. Because if there’s one thing that people love more than the average movie, it’s Harry Potter. But now that Harry Potter‘s done, you have time for more superhero movies! Yay! But, if you’re anything like the rest of the world’s population, based on sales, you probably don’t read a lot of comics and you might be a little confused by the convoluted plot lines and science fiction elements you see in these films. It may be a little tough for the average moviegoer, but that’s why I’m here!
So, in honor of this week’s Captain America: The First Avenger, I’m going to take the time to sit down with each and every one of you in a feature I like to call Captain America 101 to discuss some of the characters and terminology that you’ll be seeing in this weekend’s #1 movie, that is, unless the world decides to see Harry Potter again, but I digress.
If you have been a huge fan of Captain America like I am, then you should be excited about Marvel’s newest blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger.
The movie looks like it will be the best Marvel movie yet, but we here at Geeks of Doom don’t want to neglect Cap’s comic counterpart. I mean without the comic, there would be no movie. So, here to spread some comic love, we’re proud to present Captain America’s Top 5 Partners In crime.
In the recently released trailer for Marvel’s upcoming superhero movie, Captain America: The First Avenger, there was a brief tease of the evil Red Skull, being played by The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings star Hugo Weaving.
Now Entertainment Weekly has a much better look at the villain for those of you dying to see just how he looks. Red Skull is an incredibly dangerous threat and ultimate nemesis to Captain America (Chris Evans), a Nazi trained by none other than Hitler himself. He’s one of the all-time best villains of comic book lore, and could go down as an all-time great movie villain if done right.
