3-Minute Expert: Fin Fang Foom
I am loving 3-min experts because I learn a lot about characters I knew nothing about!
Here I thought Fin Fang Foom was just another Iron Man foe...
Where is the restaurant he works at? I want to see for myself!
@G-Man: What's it like appearing in a comic book?
Man, Fin Fang Foom is SO FULL OF EPIC FAIL to use dated vernacular. *ugh* on so many levels!!
The Lamest of the Lame of Marvel "villains" and of Iron Man's awful rogue's gallery. (I love IM, but his villains suck--except for Living Laser)
on a side note... The rings of the mandarin are actually control keys to the vessel that brought Fin Fang Foom to earth. He was, essentially, to be a mindless, Malkuan, super soldier, doomsday weapon. He has no single controller, but it easily mind-controlled mainly because it is what he was made for.
with a good writer Fin Fang Foom can really come to life... and has in the past.
" Nice video GMan....loved the intro. But didn't Fin Fang Foom recently appear in Iron Man during his time as Director of SHIELD. I think it was in Iron Man special during his Vegas vacation. "Viva Las Vegas? That's an alternate universe, not 616, I'm afraid. Judging from most of the elements, it seems inspired by the film version.
I loved JR JR's rendition of him in the Armor Wars II story line, and the action figure looked similarly cool, so I bought it. ( He was not human-size, he was huge-size. )
Sooo much I didn't know about FFF. He's really not as I thought he was.
The purple short wearing dragon is in Nextwave Agents of H.A.T.E. which is one of the funniest comics I've ever read. Though that comic is more of a spoof like the cowardly Captain America in it. So I guess it's not exactly canon?
Why Marvel creators havent tapped into more of the old marvel "pulp" characters. Like Fin Fang Foom, or It or anything from those is beyond me. Theres so much potential.
But then again we REALLLLLY NEEED 4 or 5 deadpool books a month.
sorry one deadpool book, great. 5 or 6 mehhhhhhhhh (vomit)
@Aspenite: I wanna mix things up (like how I did one on Barry Allen also). Next week's will be something...different. Then after that, it might be a fan-fav. one with some history that "everyone" might not be fully up to date on.
I love the way these videos are done. Anyone else see the FFF vs Hulk book that came out a while ago? Great fun read, lol.
I've read FFF's first apearance a few times now (in the aformentioned FFF VS H)
Again kudos to all involved in these 3 minute videos :)
