Iron Man 3 (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Well, everybody’s favorite Marvel Comics metal-head is back in the fold while combining action, aerodynamics and angst in the explosive yet slightly uneven ‘Iron Man 3′.

‘Essential Thor Volume 2’ opens with a magnificent battle scene in which Odin, Thor and a bunch of other Asgardians fight the demon men of Jutenheim. As they are defeated in two panels, they obviously weren’t all that tough. ‘For Asgard and freedom!’ cries Odin, which is a bit rich coming from an absolute monarch. […]
