THE TRIBUTARY TALES

I have decided that after I write The Vengeance of Tôl Karuţha I will write a number of Tributary Tales.

And what are Tributary Tales? Well, in this case (aside from the fact that they are both tributes and confluence streams) my Tributary Tales will be single stories I write about those fictional characters that most influenced me over time. I will strive to write one Tributary Tale per month until my list is complete. Below is the list of characters I wish to write Tributary Tales about. This list may later expand though this seems about right to me.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY EASTER EGGS

Over the weekend my children and I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. They loved it and gave it a 5 or even a 6 out of 5 (lol). I had expected a comedy and didn’t really find it all that funny, but it was indeed a very “fun film.”

So I found this article about Marvel Easter Eggs interesting.

Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Egg Trivia Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Eggs, Trivia & References

Marvel has made a habit of using their superhero films to not only provide subtle nods or fan service to the diehard comic book know-it-alls, but also help offer hints and teases of films to come in the future. With Guardians of the Galaxy, they had the chance to do the same with the largely unexplored cosmic side of their comic book universe. And they certainly didn’t pass it up.

Besides the wealth of inside jokes, Easter eggs, and direct references to the source material, fans hoping to see even the more outlandish or world-shattering characters and storylines (that make “Planet Hulk” seem like child’s play) adapted to film have reason to hope. We can’t say they’ll be coming soon, but Marvel has planted plenty of seeds.

Needless to say, there will be SPOILERS in our list of Guardians of the Galaxy trivia, so read at your own risk.
