Watching the finales of Agents of Shield and Arrow brought me to a certain realization...
I'm living a childhood dream. The comic books I read as a child are being brought to life across many visual mediums and I'm in love with the movement.
Are the comics being brought to life?
Which do you speak of specifically?
In general, I haven't seen a faithful adaptation outside of a few animated features. Even the next X-flick, which showed of Apocalypse at the end of Future Past looked to be a mesh of AOA and his intro. story arc. So, I think the characters are showing up, but not the comics. The movies have been very loose interpretations. Anyway, it doesn't matter...
Much like the "Ultimate" comics are a fresh take on comics of old, the films are fresh adaptations as well. The point is, the characters we know and love are being brought to life.
