Super Hero Biography #2 (El Zorro[Don Diego])

Super Hero Biography

Everyone knows Zorro but who was the man behind the mask/bandanna?  Don Diego de la Vega was a Californian noble during the rule of the Spanish Empire.  He became Zorro to avenge the helpless, to punish cruel politicians, and to aid the oppressed. Zorro was a legendary crusader who is only to appear in great times of hardship and oppression.  He marked his work with a “Z”.  Zorro preferred to preform his work stealthily as his name implies (Zorro is Spanish for fox).  Zorro rode a black stallion named Tornado, carried a rapier, and a bullwhip.  In his first appearance, he had a pistol but it was never seen again after.

Avengers (2012)

Movies

Today on Starlord’s Quadrant, I am reviewing one of the best movies of all time–The Avengers or Avengers Assemble (in Britain).  The movie starts out with an unnamed character and the trickster god, Loki, planning on taking over the Earth.  We are then shown S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Division) being attacked by Loki who then steals the most powerful object in the universe–the Tesseract, a.k.a. the Cosmic Cube.  Loki also mind controls Agent Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye.  In response to the attack, Nick Fury (the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.) activates the Avengers Initiative.  Agent Romanoff (Black Widow) is sent to Calcutta to recruit Bruce Banner, the Hulk, to trace the Tesseract through its gamma radiation emissions.  Coulson recruits Stark to have him review the information on the Tesseract.  Loki is later captured by Captain America, Black Widow,  Thor and Stark as Iron Man.  While in the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier, Loki causes the Avengers to bicker, leading to Loki’s escape and the apparent death of  S.H.I.E.L.D.’s top agent Coulson.  During the chaos, Hawkeye is released from mind control and the team  bonds again.  Now that the Avengers is on the frontier of war with Loki and an intergalactic army known as the Chitaturi, they put their differences aside and gear up.  After the amazing fight, Loki is taken back to Asgard to pay for his crimes.The Avengers disbands but not before enjoying some shwarma.  It is also revealed that Thanos is the mastermind behind the attack.

Thanos will be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy; Coulson will return in The Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.; The Avengers will return in The Avengers Age of Ultron.

A great movie that deserves many sequels. 20 out of 10.
