Who Is Mysterio

My First Experience

With

Mysterio

Good Evening, Everyone and welcome back to C&M Comic Hub! Sorry for the late post, but you knew what you were getting into when you log into this blog (Ha-ha)! I hope you all are doing amazing! There are exciting things that are happening in the next 27 hours, and I know you know what the cause of that will be. ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is coming out tomorrow (by the time this is published it will be the morning of. How many of you are excited to see Tom Holland play Peter Parker/Spider-Man again? I know that I am. I think that Tom Holland is an amazing actor, and he is perfect for this role. I know some people prefer Toby Maguire, and I can see why, but Tom is the perfect age and attitude of a 15-year-old boy in high school with superpowers.

In preparation of this movie, I had the chance to read the first appearance of Mysterio! Luckily, three days ago, Chris and I went to the comic shop to see if our issues we’ve been waiting for had come out. Right on the counter, there was a reprint of the Amazing Spider-Man issue that introduces Mysterio for only $1.00. Who wouldn’t pick up that up, right?

In this comic book, Spider-Man is viewed as a criminal by the city of New York because of certain actions he can’t seem to remember. Spider-Man is stealing from the citizens?? What are you talking about? Peter thinks that he is doing these bad things while he is asleep and thinks about going to see a psychiatrist. Upset by these revelations, he doesn’t even want to close his eyes but unfortunately, his eyelids shut, and the night goes by silently. Or so he thought. Spider-Man is spotted being a menace to the public again. Peter, being worried about helping Aunt May with bills, along with the fact that the city thinks of him as a villain, starts to stress him out more and more, affecting his mood and the way that he acts, which is now rash and direct.

Convinced he needs to see that psychiatrist; he swings by and sticks to the wall of the doctor’s office. The doctor being excited, tells Spider-Man to come in, relax, and to say whatever is on his mind. The doctor is trying to move his career forward by being the first professional in his field to psychoanalyze a Superhero. Spider-Man sees that this was a mistake immediately leaves the office as the doctor calls out for him.

Later, Mysterio contacts J.J. Jameson saying that he is capable of beating Spider-Man in battle. Jameson, being all for that, agrees to meet with him, not thinking the situation through. Mysterio suddenly appears in the corner of the office and hands Jameson a note.

Spider-Man goes off to meet the Mysterious man, but unfortunately, it did not go well for our favorite high school superhero. He is beaten every way to Sunday, which boggles the mind of the young hero. Finding no way to win, he decides that he needed to get away and get away fast! Off the bridge he jumps. Quickly he descends towards the water below. A police helicopter (which is called a “Police Whirly-Bird” by Peter) comes to scoop up Spider-Man and take him into custody, but no one can catch him! He’s too smart and too fast for you!

Relief floods Peter as he knows that Mysterio is the culprit of the theft. He doesn’t know how it was so, but he knew it was him! Next time that they meet, it’ll be a lot different!

J.J. Jameson introduces Mysterio to the public as the hero that New York always needed. He was the one that defeated the local menace Spider-Man and is now the city’s new hero. Peter Parker is introduced to Mysterio, and while everyone was distracted, he slipped a tracking device in the pocket of the mysterious stranger. Now, he has a way of finding him when no one else could.

“Mysterio is a real crime fighter! He’s not afraid to meet people and to be interviewed as that cowardly Spider-Man was! And once Mysterio has defeated Spider-man for good, he will reveal his true identity exclusively to my newspaper! It’ll be the scoop of the century for me! Right, Mysterio” -J.J. Jameson

“Right! Just as long as you remember the money you promised me!” -Mysterio

That was just a small part of who Mysterio is and was in the comics. He was in it for the fame and for the glory of being the one that defeated the Amazing Spider-Man! Who else in the world was able to say that?

Soon after that transaction was completed, Mysterio disappears into the mist not knowing that Peter was tracking him. Swinging onto the scene, Mysterio is taken aback as he doesn’t understand how Spider-man could have found him! Gaining his composure back from being surprised, his arrogance shows as he tells Spider-Man how he did what he did!

Outsmarted again, Spider-Man brought a miniature recorder that would capture all of Mysterio’s confession!


“A miniature recorder!! BAH! It will do you no good! I’ll destroy it—after I’ve defeated you!” -Mysterio

PAUSE! I just want to mention that Mysterio’s face (which you can see in these picture) looks just like Leonard Nimoy (Spock from Star Trek). Carry on!

A fight scene breaks out and Peter figures he should take pictures on the fighting so that he can sell them to his boss. Since Mysterio showed his hand to Spider-Man, it was a lot easier to defeat the mystery man. As it wraps up, Spider-Man carried Mysterio back to the police department and handed them the tape to prove his innocents. Before doing this, Peter drops off the fighting photos to J.J.’s office.

Spider-Man’s name is cleared of all charges and is free to do as he wishes. Stopping in on J.J. while he is in his office, he mocks J.J. for being wrong about him 100% of the time. Webbing J.J. to the ceiling, he swings off to the bright city ahead!

Thank you all for reading my easy read comic talk! I love this comic! This is my first Spider-Man comic and I am so glad that I got to start off with this issue. I think it is super smart of Marvel to re-release original looking comics in time of the release of a movie. This way, the fans can get a refresher of the storyline, and a refresher of the new villain in the series.

Now, in the trailer, Mysterio looks like he is trying to help Peter in a battle. Is Mysterio the one that created this battle so that he can see what Peter is capable of. To spend time with him and learn of his emotional state, what is he planning in this film?

I did a review of the trailer about a month and a half ago, which you can find in this link if you click it. https://candmcomichub.com/spider-man-far-from-home

I didn’t get to say much about Mysterio because I honestly didn’t know that much about him and I didn’t want to talk about something that I didn’t know much about. Now that I got to read the first appearance of this character, I feel like I know a lot more than before! Seeing the original art and how the speech patterns have changed is do amazing. If you have the ability, I would will you to go and buy this comic as soon as you can from your local comic shop (LCS).

Thank you all again for coming to read my thoughts. I know that you could be anywhere on the internet right now, but you choose to spend time here with me. I’m so happy that I get to bring you content that you like. I just sent out our first ‘Interview Questionnaire’ to a man that loves Star Wars. We would love to be able to get a lot more people to be interviewed, so if you would like to share your ideas or how you feel about a certain movie, comic, series then I would love to have you featured on our site!

Have an amazing time at the movies!

Spider-Man Far From Home

Spidey

Goes On

Vacation

It’s a wonderful day, Everyone! How are we all doing today? I don’t know where the sun and the warm weather went but don’t you fret! That ball of fire will be back to warm us all back up! As all of you might know; the new Spider-Man movie trailer dropped just a few days ago. Since I’m such a procrastinator, I had just watched it yesterday. I know. I know. But better late than never. It seems like there’s always more and more movies or T.V. shows to talk about! What a time to be a fan of comic characters! It’s amazing to be able to see your childhood favorite superheroes flying and fighting on the silver screen! I’m still waiting for Blade 4 to come out (Ha-ha)!

“Spider-Man Far From Home” is the title of this next film, and get ready to cry some more. This is to be released on July 2, 2019. I know I will be, because Tom Holland makes me cry. Every. Single. Time. I don’t get it. I believe that I covered this in the “Endgame” review, so I won’t make you all suffer again. Getting past that, this post will center on the things that I noticed, and my thoughts on them.

This movie will be taking place pretty much right after “Endgame” which I believe happened in 2023 (5 years after “Infinity War”). Far From Home will be taking place in the same year (2023), which the MCU can be a bit confusing on when the movies take place. I have a link for you all that will tell you what movies to watch in order so that you get the full effect of World Building:

The movie starts off with a bunch of graffiti on building walls of Iron Man that Peter sees over and over again. The world knows about the heroic actions that Tony Stark has done for the world. Since Tony was a father figure to Peter, it’s just a constant reminder of another death in the family. Happy is in the movie a lot more than previous movies (iron man 2008), and it seems like he is there to somewhat tried to help Peter out of his grief (future tears).

Peter is having a hard time with the death, but I see that he is getting a lot of support from his family and friends. Fury needs his abilities for a special assignment, but it seems like Peter just wants to be left alone for now.

Tony Stark’s Glasses are being used by Peter which gives me a thought of Tony leaving Peter a lot of his things, or at least Pepper finds that Peter would find happiness in having some things from his late father-figure. Either way, I think that he finds comfort in the thought that Tony left him things and that he was being thought of when he was gone in the soul stone.

Though-out the trailer, we can see that there is a use of the Iron Spider Suit in the beginning but leaves it at home. Aunt May packs him his original suit, which gives me the feeling of May being very supportive of him being Spider man. S.H.E.I.L.D. gives him a stealth suit as well. Lastly, it seems as if Tony left him a new suit too because he has a red and black one with webbed wings.

(Mr. Quintin Beck) Mysterio appears to be an ally of Spider-Man in this film, but that can’t be for certain. Mysterio is from Earth, but not from Earth-616, which we hear him say. No one is super sure that he won’t be the villain in this film, but he is the 3rd of the 6 of the Sinister Six to show up in the MCU. I saw that Adrian Toomes/Vulture (Michael Keaton) will not be returning in this movie, but he IS casted in the film, so I don’t know what to believe. Mac Gargan/Scorpion (Michael Mando) is casted as well. The Sinister Six is probably going to show up in a different Spidey Movie (Tom Holland’s Spiderman).

All Peter wants to do is go on vacation and spend time with the girl that he likes. MJ (Zendaya) knows that Peter is Spider-man (trailer could have been taken out of context through so nothing is certain). Her name is not Mary Jane but Michelle Jones this could be just the new universe in which he’s with a girl with the same initials. We won’t know until the directors tell us different. I’d be happy about the thought of her knowing the truth. I think it would be a cool concept.

I feel like he just needs a breather from all this superhero work. Sure, he is the one that wanted to be a hero, but everyone needs a rest every once in a while. He is also only 15-years-old, so of course he’s going to want to do his own things. He’s gone through a loss, several huge fights with Thanos, aliens and a bunch more. If you all remember, he told Mr. Stark that he wanted to be the Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman and that he wasn’t ready to keep up with the big names just yet.

Thank you all for coming back! I hope that you enjoyed the trailer. Are you excited to go and see this film? I know that there is going to be a good movie. The effect looks amazing and the MCU films only get better looking over the years. I’m excited to see it, and I hope that you all are too!
