Stumbled Across The Avengers at Nex & it Brought Back Childhood Memories

I don’t know much about The Avengers, but it looks exciting and I want to watch the movie now. Spotted an exhibition of sorts at Nex and as you can tell from the pictures, my favourite superhero amongst them is The Hulk. I checked and it’s on till 13th May, if you’ve run out of ideas about how to entertain the kids. I’m sure they will be excited about this and parents broke if they can persuade you to buy the toys.

Collectible dolls. Ok guys, action figures. Love the hulk. Huge fan of Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno who played the characters on TV from 1978 to 1982. I loved the part when he said “Don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry!” And how handy would that come in in real life. I would have loved to morph into the Hulk, even though he lived a tortured life. What I loved most about the Hulk is that even when he was the green figure there was a sweetness about him and he always protected the girl. He didn’t have to speak – his facial expressions conveyed the anguish. My little heart ached when I saw those scenes.

I can think of many little kids who would love these action figures. Big kids too.

The comic book sketches are incredible and a friend of mine is having a marathon with the series. Makes me want to watch the cartoon. As a kid I only watched the superheroes and loved seeing the Wonder Twins call out “Wonder Twin powers activate. But that’s a different group of superheroes. In this batch there’s Iron Man, the Hulk, Spiderman, Captain America, Thor and The Black Widow. I personally think it’s a pity Scarlett Johansson seems to have lost her famous curves to fit into the Black Widow suit.

    Agree, there is always a tinge of gentleness from hulk. I like iron man too.
