Character Study: Scott Lang (Ant-Man)

I enjoy discussing characters, and so I wanted to point out my recent post at Comparative Geeks today. I went to see the Ant-Man movie on Friday and I loved it. So much it seems, that I can’t stop talking about it! I wrote a review on Sourcerer, and I plan on reviewing the latest comic featuring the delightful Scott Lang. But I’d love to know your thoughts – on Scott, or on superheroes in general. Stop by and join the conversation!

Ant-Man armyReal Name: Scott Lang

Powers: Thanks to Pym Particles, Scott (Ant-Man) can shrink to the size of an ant. He can also communicate telepathically with insects. When he shrinks, he retains his human strength.

Abilities: Scott has expertise in electronics.

Background

Scott Lang is the current Ant-Man, though he achieved the title by unorthodox means. He stole the Ant-Man suit from Dr. Henry (Hank) Pym, in order to save his daughter’s life. Not the first time Scott stole in order to support his family. He turned to crime when he was no longer able to support his wife and daughter, and became a skilled thief as a way to make ends meet. Of course this path didn’t end well, and Scott spent a time in prison.

After his release, he worked in the design department at Stark International; trying to turn over a new leaf. When he discovered…

Sourcerer’s Eleven: Questions for Author Joshua Robertson

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Joshua Robertson as part of Sourcerer’s Eleven this month. Hop on over and check it out, Joshua is very engaging 😀

Sourcerer

Welcome to round three of Sourcerer’s Eleven. An interview series where contributors within the site get a shot in the big chair. The Instigator-In-Chief, Gene’o interviewed Luther Siler, who then put me through my paces, so now it’s my turn *rubs hands together*. In the hot seat today is Joshua Robertson, author of Melkorka (Book 1: Thrice Nine Legends), and A Midwinter Sellsword (Book 1: Hawkhurst Saga).

  1. You recently released Gladiators and Thieves, book two of the Hawkhurst Saga. Can you tell us a little about that series and how it came about?

You will have to forgive me if I momentarily nerd rage. The story of Hawkhurst was never intended to be in my collection of stories. Hawkhurst first began as a politically-themed RPG MUD (Roleplaying Game Multi-User Dimension) played through text on a web-based platform. I spent an entire weekend creating a complex city from the…

Arrow: Season 3, Episode 15 – Nanda Parbat

I decided to reblog my Arrow review here today because, even if you’re not a fan of the show, there’s some amazing content on Sourcerer – you’re sure to find something to tickle your fancy 😀 Happy Friday.

Sourcerer

arrow-header-5So much happened in this week’s episode that I don’t know where to start, so while I want to jump right to the end and the rather explosive cliff-hanger, let’s start at the beginning instead and take things one step at a time. Not literally, since that’s hardly my style, but there is a method to my madness!

Nanda Parbat opens with Ra’s in the Lazarus Pit, and there really is no question that this is the regenerative pool from the comics. Despite the fact Ollie didn’t get to swim in the mystical waters, I’m convinced the pit has its part to play, so I’m being patient.

Anyway, Nyssa makes a dramatic entrance, bringing news of Ollie’s miraculous recovery (she’s obviously never heard of the herb-induced brand of penicillin tea). Obviously Ra’s is aware that Ollie didn’t perish, and isn’t overly concerned. We all know that he didn’t buy into…
