Marvel is introducing a new Avengers cartoon starting tonight to cash in on the popularity of the franchise that’s growing due to movies like “Iron Man”, “Iron Man 2”, “Thor”, and “Captain America”.  As most of you know, those 3 movies are leading up to what is going to be one of the biggest comic book movies of all time, “The Avengers”.

From L: Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, Hulk, Wasp, and Captain America

Tonight on Disney 😄 from 8:30pm – 9:30pm EST, the new Avengers cartoon debuts.  The cast consists of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Wasp, and Ant-Man.  It’s looking VERY promising and got a lot of buzz at this years NY Comic Con.

Anyone who knows me, knows that Chris Evans is one of my fave actors on the planet.  Not only have I loved every single movie I’ve seen him in (such as “Not Another Teen Movie”, “Cellular”, and both “Fantastic Four” movies), but I just think he is one of the hottest guys out there.  I mean this guy is SERIOUSLY sexy and I don’t know why I haven’t made him a Hottie o’ the Day yet.  In fact, just because I neglected this hottie, he’s going to be the Hottie o’ the Weekend!!!  Enjoy!!!!

I’ve literally watched this guy grow up, as I used to watch him on the teen soap opera on Nickelodeon called “Fifteen”.  Ryan was a bit awkward back then, and I never imagined he’d grow up to be such a hunk.  Ryan later dated my fave singer, Alanis Morissette, starred in the Marvel Comics movie trilogy of “Blade”, and is now starring in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which opened just this weekend.  Hope you enjoy the pics!

Alright, the reason I have my name listed above as “aka Shadowcat” is because on all the doll/comic/toy boards I post on, I use the username Shadowcat.   The very first issue of Marvel Comic’s X-Men that I ever bought happened to be teh very first issue that Kitty Pryde (aka Shadowcat) appeared in.  X-Men quickly became my favorite comic book series.  All along the way, I felt like I grew up with Kitty, and she’s always remained my favorite comic book character.  So, for those of you reading this blog have never heard of her or seen her, I’ve included some pics of her in this entry.  Mystery solved.  🙂

Shadowcat's mutant power is that she can phase through solid matter.
