Open the door, get on the floor! Everybody walk the dinosaur! Today we’re going to talk about one of the best topics in the world: dinosaurs! To make it even better, we’re going to talk about the best dinosaur: the Ankylosaurus! It’s been my favorite dinosaur since I was a kid and it deserves the spotlight!
Some people out there would focus on the Tyrannosaurus Rex or the Velociraptor. Both are cool, but they get too much attention. And don’t even get me started on the Triceratops or the Stegosaurus. The Ankylosaurus is cooler than them all! Built like a tank, complete with armored plating on the back, and a massive tail bludgeon, the Ankylosaurus is just plain cool! So I went out and tracked down six different Ankylosaurus-based characters in pop culture!
Join me after the jump for six times the Ankylosaurus was used as inspiration for one cool character or another!
As I embark on my own potential comic book career with Gamer Girl & Vixen (pre-order the graphic novel today!), I’m finding it very interesting how few awesome concepts get turned into superheroes. There are very few sports-themed superheroes, even though sports are pretty much currency here in America. There are very few dog-themed superheroes, despite an overabundance of cat sueprheroes.
And there are very few dinosaur-themed superheroes, even though dinosaurs are awesome!
We’ve got bat superheroes, spider superheroes, wolverine superheroes, cat super-villains and nearly everything else under the sun. But dinosaurs get a pass. Why is that? For that matter, why aren’t there more dinosaur everythings? Why is there only one popular movie franchise about dinosaurs? Jurassic Park doesn’t own dinosaurs as a concept! They belong to the whole world!
Join me after the jump for a true dinosaur celebration, as I managed to find at least six dinosaur comic book characters!
Yet another movie trailer has fallen in our laps today, this time for Jurassic World. I think it’s because all these big summer movies want to have trailers in front of Avengers: Age of Ultron in less than two weeks. Makes sense, but man, talk about losing hype. I’m all trailered out.
The movie looks fine. I don’t have particularly high hopes, and I still think Chris Pratt looks kind of silly, but whatever. He’s right: dinosaurs are awesome, and this is the premiere dinosaur franchise. How else are we going to get dinosaur movies?
No, seriously, why are there no other dinosaur movies? What about Dino-Riders? Why is that not a thing yet?!
