Meet the Minions

Did you see the minions in the cartoon film Despicable Me featuring Gru (who was voiced by Steve Carell)? Gru is a wretched despot who wants to shrink and get the moon so he can conquer the whole world and tailor it according to his twisted mind.

For the ones who still are not acquainted (so, the next question is where have you been all this time?) all minions are little, yellow-colored, cylindrical-formed characters in the films Despicable Me. The wide-eyed joy for life and unusual innocence is making them delightful figures for audiences. The calculated number of minions operating for their wicked master Gru is at 899, but there are only a few of them who regularly get immediate commands from him.

They all used over-sized glasses to protect their eye(s). Most of them had two eyes, however a few of the characters were short-changed and has just one eye.

At the end of the film, Gru was has changed into a better person, and viewers had become infatuated with his unusual but lovely dedicated employees known as minions.

A few years later, a follow up was launched, Despicable Me 2, with the funny, naïve, naughty minions and the movies earned over twice as the first one. With revenues like these, it was expected that another cartoon Minions was going to be produced. And you were correct, since this third film, a prequel, was released and features three of the fans preferred naughty minions – Kevin, the team’s leader; Stuart, the youngster and little Bob.

They talk to each other using some unusual words – combination of English and a few other ‘languages’ with a change of some characters and modified significance. A little bit insane and some kind of uncomfortable during their actions, they won the minds and hearts of the viewers with their cuteness. Every one knows them and thanks to the great advancement of technology, they are now everywhere – begins with toys and gaming activities, balloons, sticks, bonbons and sweets and goes to home goods and fashion. They assaulted the Internet with fan creations like an incredible number of gags, hilarious quotes, memes or even their own parodies. Social networking is full with their images and everybody enjoys and has a good laugh when seeing them.

Beginning as single-celled yellow-colored creatures, Minions develop through their age groups, constantly working for despicable masters. Consistently failing at keeping these masters alive and well —from ancient T. rex to General Napoleon — these Minions end up without someone to work for and go into a dark depressive state. But one Minion known as Kevin has a strategy, and he – alongside young companion Stuart and delightful little Bob – venture out into the large world to discover a new despicable master for his people to serve too. The group of three embarks upon a fantastic trip that eventually brings them to their next prospective boss, Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first-ever woman super-villain. They go from freezing Antarctica to Sixties New York, via our mod London, where the team must complete their greatest task to date: preventing all of Minionkind from being destroyed.

Stuart

Stuart minions (Copy)

 

Similar to Dave thanks to combed hair combed locks, Stuart has just one eye. He also seems to be smaller than other minions are (or it is the fact that he is chubbier?). Stuart was not presented a lot in the initial Despicable Me, but in the second film, he attracts quite a lot of interest when he is dressed as a woman.

Phil

Phil (Copy)

He is a lovely minion with a nice and caring soul. When the group of three was not able to find Agnes her new toy, he created one for the girl instead. Whether an expert of undercovering or just really likes to dress funny, he was wearing a complete house cleaner attire in the second film. As if his regular cover was not enough, Phil had only one eye in the initial film, but two eyes in the second one.

Carl

Carl (Copy)

This is a one-eye character who really enjoys to make sounds. When Gru’s workplace was on fire, Carl was the one who made the effort to act like a fire alarm. He is also the model of artwork to mark the release of Despicable Me 2 around the world.

Tim

Tim (Copy)

The head of a trio formed by Mark, Phil and himself, he was the minion dad when they looked for Agnes’ unicorn. He is quickly recognizable with his thin figure and tall body (the long and spiky hair is included in his height!).

Kevin

Kevin (Copy)

He is another one-eyed character, just like Phil and Stuart. He was unintentionally shrunk with a special ray in the original film. In the second film, there is another figure known as Kevin, this time being a character with two eyes and taller. It is still controversial whether it is the same minion.

Jorge

Jorge (Copy)

Despite being the chubbiest minion of all, Jorge is extremely pleased with his physique. Maybe this is why he does not care when creating duplicates of his buttocks.

Dave

Dave (Copy)

The main trait that he has is maybe represented by his short and combed hair. While all other minions generally have a spiky hair, his hair is nicely separated in the center and combed to the sides as the 90’s nerds.

Viewers will easily keep in their mind the two-eyed character from the original Despicable Me when master Gru was informing the minions of the next major strategy. When the minions pulled out their weaponry, Dave continued to get himself a rocket launcher.

Jerry

Jerry (Copy)

It is not obvious, but it looks as if there are two Jerries in the movies. Even if both of the characters have two eyes and a spiky hairstyle, the one shown in the second film is smaller and rounder. Oh well, maybe he has eaten too many bananas.

Some of the spectators will remember him as being Stuart’s best friend and went him to look after the kids when their master Gru was occupied with his plan during the first film.

5 Things That Make Thanos Marvel’s Supervillan

If you’re not familiar with Marvel, here’s a recap on what you’ve been missing about one of their most famous villains, Thanos. He was created back in 1973 and since then has appeared in animated series, video games and even latest Marvel movies. He made a cameo appearance during the credit of “The Avengers” and appeared in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Born on Saturn’s moon Titan, he became interested in nihilism and death and ends up murdering his own family for Mistress Death. Let’s have a look at 5 things that make Thanos Marvel’s supervillan.

5. He had daddy and mommy issues

Things That Makes Thanos Marvel's Supervillan

You wouldn’t expect Thanos to grow up having a blissful childhood after his own mother attempted to kill him after giving birth to him, would you? Because of his looks and because he was feared by everyone, his family and the society he was born in shunned him as an outcast. At the same time, he was compelled to witness as his worthless brother, Eros, was being prepared to become Titan’s leader. As a consequence, he picked up some nasty habits on the way, including black magic, which was frowned upon by the Eternals.

4. Thanos the Brawler

Things That Makes Thanos Marvel's Supervillan

Thanos was privileged and enjoyed some amazing powers like teleportation, flight, the ability to project heat and radiation. In addition, he can control objects with his mind and travel through time and dimensions. This translates into being stronger than other super heroes like Thor and Hulk. As a consequence, he doesn’t shy away from resolving conflicts with his fists. To illustrate his strength and determination, we’ll just mention he nearly beat the Silver Surfer to death, who is a powerful creature, capable of surviving in a black hole.

3. He has more lives than a cat

Things That Makes Thanos Marvel's Supervillan

Over the years Thanos has experienced several deaths and has resurrected in mysterious ways. Among these, we remember the one time when he was turned to stone by the Warlock, followed by him reappearing as a ghost on the death of his nemesis, Captain Marvel. His next death involved Drax the Destroyer punching his beating heart out of him. But he plainly refused to stay dead and instead resurrected yet again, this time via a cocoon… only to be killed one more time by Drax with a bomb. It won’t come as a surprise that he survived this as well in the shape of a skeleton that later regenerated.

2. He’s not that good with kids

Things That Makes Thanos Marvel's Supervillan

Gamora was “adopted” by Thanos and raised by him since she was a baby. He altered her perception to make her believe he wasn’t evil which worked just fine until it didn’t. When Gamora finally realized what she was up against, she tried to kill her step father, but ended up dead at his hand. Thanos also fathered biological children across the universe. However, none of these survived since he had a knack for destroying the planets they inhabited. Thanos tried to kill one of his surviving sons, Thane, but the father ended up trapped in an amber cube, the “Living Death”.

1. Death smitten

Things That Makes Thanos Marvel's Supervillan

What does that mean? Death in Marvel comics can appear under any shape. Death first appeared for the boy Thanos in the shape of a little girl and then as a woman, as he grew up. Under her spell, he agreed to kill half the population of the universe, but Death remained unimpressed by all his efforts to conquer her. Apparently, it was not enough for her to receive the deaths of thousands of people and to have a loyal follower in Thanos. Maybe he should try again with flowers and chocolate?

Joffrey is similar to his mom regarding his looks and character, his golden-haired locks being a small hint that he is not in reality a Baratheon, who popularly always have dark hair even when a parent has blonde hair. He is usually associated with his sworn protector, the powerful Sandor Clegane, also named the Hound. Even prior to ascending to the Iron Throne, he is angry, conceited, cowardly and spiteful, however, these characteristics are further amplified after Robert Baratheon’s death and his rise to the top.

Joffrey was initially arranged for a marriage with Sansa Stark and he held her captive after he killed her dad for treason, as Ned Stark tried to expose the reality about his parentage. But, he got rid of Sansa for Margaery Tyrell, as a formal aspect of the new partnership between the Lannister, the main followers of Joffrey, and the Tyrells, the leading house of the Reach that assisted in defending King’s Lading against Stannis Baratheon’s strike.

At his marriage with Margaery Tyrell, he was killed by consuming poisoned wine. The last action as he was passing away was towards Tyrion Lannister, his uncle. Upon his unexpected death, Cersei arrests Tyrion on the reason of regicide, even if the real orchestrators are Petyr Baelish and Olenna Tyrell.
