Mark Ruffalo Lost His Wallet and Twitter Helped Him Find It

MarkRuffalo(PCM) The 21st Century has proven to truly be the age of connectivity with one in four people engaging in social media globally, and Mark Ruffalo can thank his lucky stars that the twitter user who found his wallet in the back of a Chicago cab fit that statistic and also happened to be a Good Samaritan.

Mark Ruffalo was in the “Windy City” over the weekend serving as Grand Marshall at Chicago Speedway for Saturday’s NASCAR race when he apparently left his wallet in the cab.

Twitter user @Tredezuet must have slipped into the cab not too long after the actor, well known for his roles in such films as The Avengers as the Hulk and Shutter Island, and was courteous enough to reach out to Ruffalo through Twitter, alerting him that he was in possession of his wallet.

Mark Ruffalo retweeted @Treduzuet and thanked him for his kindness, remarking “Another point for the decency in people.”

Mark Ruffalo is currently filming Avengers: Age of Ultron and is gearing up to film Now You See Me 2, reprising his role as FBI Agent Dylan Rhodes.

Are Politically Correct Comics Ruining Comic Books?

(PCM) Is Political Correctness Being Forced on Comic Book Readers? Around the Internet many media sites are praising Marvel comics for knowing what readers want, asserting that readers are smart enough to accept a female Thor or a Black Captain America.

The point that Marvel is making these changes isn’t very exciting to established comic book readers. Marvel editors don’t see these moves as daring or needed. They certainly are not in response to any readers demanding characters be female or black. They see them as no more than another marketing stunt by a publication to cash in on some hype.

Should there be more female superheros? Should there be more racially diverse superheroes etc…? That’s not the subject of this article. What you should be aware of is that politically correct superheroes are no more than a considered angle to sell comics.

The fact you are reading this article may mean you don’t even read comic books. Comic book readers already know the answer to this question because they understand the real agenda of Marvel in making politically correct changes to characters.

Be sure to understand this clear. If a Female Thor sells comics, Marvel will blow with the politically correct wind and claim this was their plan all along. The same goes for a Black Captain America. The editorial staff at Marvel are not geniuses. They are business men that want to sell paper. They are throwing an idea against the wall and hoping it sticks. The latest hip trend are politically correct comics.

Yet in this hyper politically correct society which has evolved over the last 20 years, there is no doubt ideas like maiming an character or killing a character are not as newsworthy as current top three. They are:

Changing a character’s race
Changing a character’s sex
Changing a characters’s sexuality

Do you think this is cheap or do you think this is great storytelling? Should you be considered smart if you accept these changes to an established character or should you be insulted?

What’s interesting is that Marvel is killing off one of the top franchise characters late in the summer of 2014. That character is Wolverine. He won’t stay dead of course. It’s a story telling device in comics that has not yet be used on this character. It’s a fair bet that those issues of Wolverine will sell more comics than both Thor and Captain America combined.

 

Will the Death of Wolverine sell more than Thor and Captain America because Marvel made Thor a female and Captain America black? The fair guess is no, and the reason is much simpler than the misguided media will speculate. The answer is easy, Wolverine has a larger established base of readers which will continue to read Wolverine. Thor and Captain America will have their usual readers as well. The status quo will not change.

To this the only lesson to learn is that you should not read mainstream media for opinions on comic books.

Those reporters don’t even read comic books and almost always have a social bias and social agenda to push. If you want to read some informed articles on comic book superheroes stick to comic book sites or of course read PCM, and look for articles by Lars Hindsley who reports on the subject of comic books from an informed position.

Move Over Hot Felon! The Duck Face Felon Is In The (Big) House!

duckface

(PCM) While there have been plenty of mug shot photos circulating online, especially those that are considered to be “hot”, but the latest mug shot creating a viral frenzy online is the “duck face” mug shot!

Angela Green was recently arrested at a Quality Inn in Ohio after refusing to leave the hotel room after it was past the scheduled check-out time. She was charged with obstructing business, but it is not the story of her arrest that is making headlines, it’s her absolutely ridiculous mug shot pose.

When the hotel called police to the room because the Green was refusing to leave, they gave her the option of either leaving the room or paying to rent it out for another night. She then proceeded to become very loud and uncooperative with authorities which is what led to her arrest.

She was eventually booked and released on a $354 dollar bond, however her mug shot will forever live in infamy!
