Spider-Man: Homecoming Spoilers Part 1

The plot of Spider-Man: Homecoming is tightly under wraps at Marvel and Sony, but with a few of the revelations we have been given I am pretty confident in announcing a few spoilers for the movie. Now, unlike other sites that just throw out things to catch views, all my theories are based on 30 years of comic book reading and a great talent for making educated guesses. So, without further ado or any more build up, let's talk Spider-Man Homecoming spoilers!

Spoiler #1: The Vulture is not Adrian Toomes but Blackie Drago!
In the comics Blackie Drago is a thief who happens to be locked up with Adrian Toomes, the original Vulture, and through trickery is able to acquire the location of the Vulture's spare suit. Donning the Vulture suit, Blackie takes up the mantle of The Vulture and begins a crime spree around New York. Blackie Drago is nothing more than a thief and there would be the reason the second villain, The Tinkerer, would be needed in the movie. You see, I believe we will get Adrian Toomes as the inventor of the Falcon technology which Blackie Drago will steal and bring to the Tinkerer in order to have his suit built. Seeing how neither Blackie nor the Tinkerer have access to Stark Technology they will use recovered Chitauri technology instead, resulting in a suit more powerful then the one Falcom uses. 

Spoiler #2 The Hobgoblin is going to be hinted at in the end credits scene!
With the Vulture defeated and New York saved the Tinkerer is going to be looking to make the money Blackie Drago owes him for building the Vulture suit. That's when Logan Marshall-Green will show up and make inquiries about the suit's wings. The wings, being the only thing The Tinkerer has spares of with be turned on and rise up from the floor at which point Logan, known as Mr. Kingsley, will ask if they are stable enough for someone to stand on thus hinting at the creation of the goblin glider.

Spoiler #3 The Shocker will be defeated within the first few minutes of the movie.
In order to show off Spider-Man's abilities and how hectic his life has become, The Shocker will show up within the first ten minutes of the movie and be defeated just as fast as he appears. This will be a nod to the appearance of The Shocker in Ultimate Spider-Man where he is defeated five times, proving to be nothing more than a nuisance to Spider-Man. 

Well, those are the first round of spoilers for Spider-Man Homecoming. As we get more information about the movie I will make more predictions, reveal more spoilers, and put out a theory or two. As always. feel free to comment, like, share, tweet, or whatever other thing you kids do on your social media these days.

Let's Talk About Gamer Girls

First off, yeah the pic in the beginning is pretty much click bait. Sorry, but I think what I have to say about this subject warranted getting as much eyes on this article as possible. Secondly, the picture toward the end of the article took longer to find then actually writing this article. Third, in no way, shape, or for am I a feminist. I appreciate an attractive women, I enjoy "cheesecake" very much, I have no issues with women looking sexy while playing games, starring in games, or talking about games. Now, with all that said, we really need to talk about "gamer girls." You notice how I put that in quotes, because it seems this term has taken on a life of its own and no longer means actual female gamers but instead it is used to describe females who play games while looking sexy. Now, as I said before, I got no problem with attractive women playing games and I even know an attractive female who is not a gamer girl, but a true female gamer. The problem I have is men, very stupid, teenage, hormone driven, men believe that female gamers should look and behave like this so called "gamer girls."

Now, I don't know about you but I don't think strippers will take any opportunity to hop on a pole and twerk for dollars, so why do people believe that these women, who may actually play games off camera, act like the above pictures when they are alone? These women pretending that this is normal leads to men going crazy when they hear a female voice over their headset. These men, thinking that all female gamers are oversexed horn dogs, act like fools trying to get some action from these women instead of just playing games with them like they want to. This behavior, coupled with the moronic misogynistic attitudes of some guys, leads to females abandoning games and thus they create the idea of female gamers being few and far between. 

Look, porn is fine as long as we realize that the pizza guy is not getting a special tip nor is he bringing "extra sausage" to that lonely housewife down the street. Gamer girls are fine too, as long as we realize it is just an act to make money by women not willing to work in the strip club. Females game just as hard, and in some cases harder, then us guys and we need to respect that. We also need to back off a bit and get to know the voice on the other end of the headset before trying to get them in our bed. These women playing Call of Duty, Fallout, or Mortal Kombat don't want your number, your pick-up lines, or you're dick pics...they only want to whoop your ass in a game or help you beat that next boss fight. Let me leave you with this bit of advice, if you wouldn't act that way if she was next to you on the couch gaming then don't act that way online. So, go out there and have a great time and don't be shocked when you find out you got a no scope head shot death from a female gamer. As always. feel free to comment, like, share, tweet, or whatever other thing you kids do on your social media these days.
