Stromtroopers Dressed Like Popular Superheroes

The Imperial Stormtroopers are fictional soldiers from George Lucas’ Star Wars universe. Stormtroopers are elite soldiers, working as the marines for the Imperial Navy, under the leadership of the evil Sith Lord and Emperor Palpatine and his commanders, most notably Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin.

They are shown in collective groups of varying organizational sizes ranging from squads to legions, and, for some, their armor and training is modified for special operations and environments.

In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, the first troopers were cloned from bounty hunter Jango Fett, to be the Army of the Republic in theClone Wars. In Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the Clone troopers execute Order 66 at the command of Chancellor Palpatine, attacking their Jedi generals.

Initially, the stormtroopers serve as the army of the Galactic Empire, putting down revolts and establishing Imperial authority. The Stormtrooper Corps swell in size after Palpatine allows the addition of recruits and conscripts alongside the clones.

When the Empire is firmly stabilized and an Imperial Army/Imperial Navy established, the stormtroopers become Palpatine’s personal army and are stationed on Imperial bases and cruisers, as well as on the Death Star. They maintain these roles until the Empire‚Äôs collapse after Palpatine’s death in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

The troopers’ most distinctive equipment is their white battle armor, inherited from their time as clone troopers. The complete armor set completely encases the body and typically has no individually distinguishing marking (in contrast to the clone trooper armor, which typically had various colorings to denote rank or unit, stormtrooper armor has no rank affiliation).

20 Superheroes and Supervillains Id Like to See in Upcoming Movies

Superhero Films are Big Business in Hollywood These Days

It’s no longer geeky to say you enjoy Superhero films. The recent crop are well written, gain critical acclaim and usually please fans and non fans alike.This is my list of superheroes and supervillains I’d like to see in upcoming films. The ones I’ve chosen either haven’t been seen on celluloid before or haven’t been done justice recently…

20. The Mad Hatter

Starting us off is this under-rated villain. Jervis Tetch is an insane neuroscientist completely smitten by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He invents hats and other headgear to induce hypnotic states in his opponents to control their minds. The Mad Hatter would be an interesting figure against Bale’s Batman.

19. Mr Freeze

For those of you still reeling from Scharzenegger’s camp portrayal of this character I’d look forward to a different interpretation. We could re-use that suit though! Victor Fries (pronounced ‘Freeze’) is a scientist who, following an accident in a cryogenics plant, must wear a cryogenic suit in order to survive. His crimes follow a ‘cold’ or ‘ice’ theme and he arms himself with a ‘cold gun’ that freezes its targets solid. A good villain needs a good backstory or motivation and Freeze is no exception – he’s trying to find a cure for his terminally ill wife whom he has placed in cryogenic hibernation.

18. Vulture

This gent has always struck me as under-rated. As a young child I was amazed that a character who could be my elderly grandad could be a supervillain! Adrian Toomes was born in Staten Island, New York. He worked naively as an electronics engineer to his unscrupulous business partner. Upon finding out he was being cheated, Toomes took his latest invention – the flight harness – and turned to crime. His wings are as sharp as swords and can be used as projectile weapons. With the impending reboot of the Spiderman franchise in 2012, the Vulture must be due to take to the skies!

17. Brainiac

Every good superhero needs a good supervillain as his nemesis. Brainiac, an extraterrestrial android, is a good example of someone whom Superman can actually fight. It’s about time Superman returned to the big screen with a more active bad guy.

16. The Enchantress

Born in Asgard, The Enchantress is one of Thor’s longstanding opponents. Her well-renowned beauty and magical charming abilities far from hinders her!

15. Cat Woman

Selina Kyle is a prostitute who wants to leave her abusive pimp (and former boyfriend). She begins to study self defence and martial arts. Her teacher inspires Selina to become more than what she has been but as Selina is led to burglary, she dons a catsuit costume, and increasingly gets more of a buzz from her crimes. After Michelle Pfeiffer’s spot on portrayal, cinema-goers, were treated (!) to the terrible Halle Berry production. It’s about time the Cat Woman received a new and Pfeiffer-esque reappearance.

14. Ultron

Henry Pym, scientist and inventor creates Ultron and based the robot’s brain patterns on his own. However, the robot gradually developed its own intelligence and rebelled. Ultron suffers from an irrational hatred of his ‘father’ and has an unhealthy interest in his girlfriend, Janet Van Dyne. Ultron is heavily armoured and is almost impregnable. Come on Marvel, I’m dying to see him in action!

13. Wonder Woman

How long has Wonder Woman been languishing in Development Hell? Wonder Woman is an Amazon, her powers include superhuman strength, flight, stamina and agility. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare. She uses her Lasso of Truth, which forces those bound by it to tell the truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, and an invisible aeroplane. Made famous on screen by Linda Carter I thnk the world is ready for a new celluloid Wonder Woman.

12. Ant Man

Henry Pym (he who created Ultron) discovers a size-altering chemical substance. He invents a helmet that can control ants and Pym will shrink down to the size of an insect to become the unconventionally heroic Ant-Man. He soon shared his discovery with his girlfriend, Janet Van Dyne, who became his crime-fighting partner as the Wasp.

11. Phoenix

Briefly touched on in the last X-Men film Jean Grey-Summers is an Omega-level mutant and the physical manifestation of the cosmic Phoenix Force. Far from just being an ‘ordinary’ telekinetic, the Phoenix is enormously powerful and intriguingly sometimes beyong Jean’s power to control. Unleash the Phoenix!

10. Rhino

The Rhino is much more than a nameless thug for hire. He volunteered to participate in an experiment that bonded a superstrong polymer to his skin and augment strength and speed. Unlike most supervillains he isn’t a mastermind or genius but a rather simplemineded and vulnerable character. A regular opponent of Spiderman and the Hulk we have two film franchises that I’m hoping will take him up.

9. The Riddler

After a promising but slightly over-the-top appearance by Jim Carrey the Riddler would be an ideal villain for the Bale series. He is a malignant narcissist with an enormous ego committing crimes to flaunt his intellectual superiority.

8. Poison Ivy

Pamela Isley ia an anti-hero who becomes one of the world’s most prominent eco-terrorists obsessed with plants, botany, and environmentalism. She uses toxins from plants and her own bloodstream for her criminal activities, which are usually aimed at protecting the natural environment.

7. Black Cat

Felicia Hardy was born in Queens, New York. As a freshman at Empire State University, Felicia was raped by her boyfriend Ryan. Hating the idea of being a victim, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics, intent on killing her rapist. Finally, after months of preparing, she set out for revenge, but before she could find him, Ryan was killed in a drunk driving accident. Furious that she was denied the chance for revenge, Hardy decided to utilize her new skills as a cat burglar. I would love to see the Black Cat in the new Spidey film, her on-off quasi romance with the Web Spinner adds an extra dimension to both characters. Note: Marvel’s Black Cat pre-dated DC’s Catwoman by around 10 years.

6. Bizarro

Back in the early Superboy days, a scientist demonstrates his newly invented “duplicating ray” but, an accident causes the ray to duplicate the teen hero. The copy, quickly labeled “Bizarro”, is a flawed imitation as it possesses chalky white skin and childlike erratic behavior. Bizarro is identical but opposite to Superman and is another interesting character who could quite merrily square off against Supes.

5. Electro

Max Dillon gains his electrical powers after being struck by lightning while working on a power line only to be then electrocuted by the power cables. Surviving the accident Max, a put-upon individual, realises he now has powers of his own and turns to a life of crime. Electro is a favourite of mine from the comics and would be a very good character visually on screen.

4. Cloak and Dagger

Time for a duo who really could carry off a film on their own. Cloak:

Tyrone acquired D’Spayre’s Dark Form, which gave him the ability to create an aperture into the dimension of darkness and to dispatch persons into the darkness dimension. He also gained the abilities of intangibility, and the teleportation of himself and others through the dimension of darkness. Cloak feels a constant “hunger” which can only be assuaged by “feeding” either on light projected by Dagger or on light consumed from victims dispatched to the dimension of darkness. Dagger: Tandy has the ability to create psionic “light daggers” which travel wherever she wills them, and which drain living beings of vitality when struck. Her “light daggers” also have the capacity to cure certain persons of drug addictions, and can alleviate Cloak’s hunger for light.

3. Lobster Johnson

Here’s hoping that the third Hellboy film makes it into production. Blending exciting story-telling and witty deadpan banter, the first two films are eminently re-watchable. Lobster Johnson was a vigilante who worked in secret in New York City during the 1930s. Although the public believes that The Lobster was only the hero of pulp serials and comics, he was a real man who faced gangsters as well as paranormal threats. The Lobster had a reputation for violence, such as killing mobsters and burning his trademark lobster claw symbol into their foreheads with the palm of his gloved hand.

2. Carnage

This may not be possible to film without an ’18’ certificate! Carnage is a psychopathic justifying his acts of murder by believing the universe is essentially chaotic and that law and order are a perversion. Fighting against Spiderman, Carnage seems to have little interest in such typical supervillain desires as wealth and world domination.

1. Judge Dredd

After the hit and miss Stallone film (of which I am a fan except for one or two misgivings) Judge Dredd, the law enforcement officer in violent city Mega City 2 is from a future where uniformed Judges combine the powers of police, judge, jury and executioner. Dredd and his fellow Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence and even execute criminals on the spot. It’s about time Dredd should return to our screens!

Gregoria is a closet comicbook fan and can’t wait to see her fave characters on the big screen. In the meantime she contents herself with Virgin Mobile USA when she’s over in the States and loves Virgin America.
