My choice for Marvel Lantern Power Rings

In the story Blackest Night There was a point where each of the power rings were able to temporarily choose a hero, Yellow to Scarecrow, Orange to Luther, Blue to Flash etc..

If the rings were in the Marvel universe who do you think would get each color?

This is my list

Yellow to Phobos Son of Ares he is a god of fear after all. That was the easiest one to choose. If you didn't pick him it is because you just over looked him. Like the Scarecrow choice for DC, Phobos makes the most sense, as he can scare anyone. Now he did die but he was living when Blackestnight came out.

Rage. Of course the ring fueled by rage should go to the Hulk who is also fueled by rage. Hulk only ever exist when he is already raging. And he has plenty of it. I think there will be very little objection to this one. One question could be would Hulk remain as such forever as long as the ring was on? Could he no longer turn back into Banner?

Fearless and Will

Daredevil A man without fear gets the green ring. He has also proven his will, being chosen the lead the hand, mastering both law and martial arts all while blind. He doesn't have real super powers or some invisible weapon, but he challenges all regardless of that.

Thor was another choice as was Captain America and Gorgon.

...........................................................................................................................................................................................................

Hope

Blue was tough but I gave it to Captain America because no one inspires more and has more hope than him. He also has an indomitable will. He could have also gotten a Green ring but I think in the comics he is more of a leader and a hope based character plus Daredevil despite being less nationally iconic has every bit the will and fearlessness. It's in his title. Captain America although awesome does have doubts and worries but never loses hope. He can also pick up Thor's Hammer.

There are many greedy villains in Marvel and my first thought was Osborn but the King Pin is even more greedy and more of a megalomaniac. Plus it goes fittingly against Daredevil's Green Ring. Norman at times when he is less goblin has been able to share the lime light, was once even a fan of Parker. King Pin chose his greed over the love of his life and since then has just gotten worse and worse.

......................................................................................................................................................................................

Who has more of the will to live than Elektra who has risen from the dead 6 times! She was so good at avoiding death that the Skull captured her above everyone to study how she did it. No one has returned form the dead more times and beaten death than Elektra.

......................................................................................................................................................................................

Ring/Staff

I was less certain about this one but I gave it to Sue Storm, the mom, wife, sister, and super hero who sacrificed herself in Ulitmates to hold off a flood coming to New York as long as she could. Another candidate I had in mind was Night Crawler. It's hard because they all have compassion that's why they're heroes.

WTF? you might be thinking. Well let me defend my choice. Based on what can be backed up by the comics. I chose the friendly Spider-man, because he was even able to overcome the hate feeding symbiote. Unlike others who once possessed must be set free Spider-man can actually wear the black suit on purpose when he needs to and maintain relative control over it. Also though the story wasn't popular, Mephisto chose ruining Peter and Marry Jane's love (which he called the strongest) to be worth exchanging Aunt May's life. He won't kill, he has sympathy even for his foes and even sacrifices his own happiness for it. Over all based on family love, romantic love, friendship and so on Spider-man is has a very strong sense of love.

There were many to think about but I settled on this guy. I think the Nazi is self explanatory. Also thought of Thanos, Venom, (he eats people) Galactus though his killing is more out of indifference which when you think about it is even more evil. Yes on second thought Galactus has caused the most death which is what the ring is about death not evil but I can't just change and re-change my list. I am sure I over looked someone of the thousands of characters. So feel free to disagree. Wen you make a list and get feed back you think oh yeah so and so was a better choice... So please don't hate on my list give it a thumbs up for effort.

If Marvel had been given the lantern rings...?

In the story Blackest Night There was a point where each of the power rings were able to temporarily choose a hero, Yellow to Scarecrow, Orange to Luther, Blue to Flash etc..

I have answered my own question on one of my list, but I am not putting it here so I dont influence the choices. I put it here http://www.comicvine.com/profile/blackestnight/blog/my-choice-for-marvel-lantern-power-rings/91137/ but dont look at that until after you write you own.

Spider-man 700 WTF Most Horrible idea ever

SPOILER below Not really cause you wont want to keep Reading Spider-man after what was done anyway.

Spider-man 700 was the worst idea and writing I have ever seen. Killing off Doc Octopus would have been enough of an event. Allowing an enemy to kill Spider-man and run off with his life, girl, memories, etc was worst thing one could do to a Spider-man fan. The Theme of Justice is what is attractive about comics. Dan Slott just flipped it all backwards. I am glad he enjoys his negative attention. He just took a shit on the work of Stan Lee and many other who built a character over so many years. I won't be reading the re-launch. I don't acknowledge anything Dan Slott has written. I hope a fan based Spiderman 701 is written to replace the Bullshit of Slott. The way it happened didn't even make sense. Peter would have phoned MJ and the Fantastic 4 Avengers ASAP to tell them what had happened. Someone like Dr. Strange or any mind reading Xmen could have verified it.

Japan to stick with lucky Spiderman pants for WCB bid

TOKYO —

Japan will stick with their lucky red Spiderman-style pants in its bid to win a third successive World Baseball Classic (WBC) title, head coach Koji Yamamoto said on Monday.

“We’ll be wearing the red pants,” Yamamoto told reporters, looking forward to his side’s opening game against surprise qualifiers Brazil on March 2 in Fukuoka. “Brazil have good pitching. The first game will be extremely important.”

Brazil join the defending champions, powerhouse Cuba and China in Pool A after stunning Panama in qualifying.

Despite opting for the snazzy superhero look, Yamamoto warned his players to dress conservatively and keep the lid on the hair dye during the March 2-19 tournament.

“You can see by the way they’re preparing for the WBC that this is a serious bunch,” the 66-year-old added. “They represent Japan and their appearance should reflect that.”

Yamamoto has already given a warning to Nippon Ham Fighters outfielder Sho Nakata, who began New Year workouts with his hair bleached.

“If he comes to camp like that, I’ll hit the roof,” said the “Samurai Japan” skipper, who has not selected any Major League Baseball (MLB) players for the 16-team competition.

Japan, whose chances of a hat-trick of victories has been weakened by the absence of players such as Ichiro and Yu Darvish, almost pulled out of the event after a row over sponsorship revenue.

Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) warned that a player boycott would be frowned on at home after the 2011 tsunami and nuclear crisis and the threat was averted.

Japan have a history of discontent regarding the issue of sponsorship rights, threatening to organize an Asian boycott of the inaugural 2006 tournament.

Does anyone know if there is a squinkies ghost rider?

It's for my son. I live in Japan and order them online so I cannot see them before I buy them.
