Spiderman : Venom POPOBE

Venom, or the Venom Symbiote, is a Symbiote, an extraterrestrial life form in the Marvel Comics universe. The creature is a sentient alien with a gooey, almost liquid-like form. It requires a host, usually human, to bond around for its survival. In return the Venom creature gives its host enhanced powers. In effect, when the Venom Symbiote bonds with a human to form a supervillain, that new dual-life form itself is also often called Venom. Its second host Eddie Brock, after bonding with the Symbiote to become the first Venom, is one of Spider-Man's archenemies.

Spider-Man was the first host it merged with before its motives were clear. After Spider-Man rejected it, the Symbiote went on to merge with other hosts and so began its reign as the villain known as Venom. Comics journalist and historian Mike Conroy writes of the character: "What started out as a replacement costume for Spider-Man turned into one of the Marvel web-slinger's greatest nightmares."

Venom has become one of Spider-Man's most enduring and popular foes. Indeed, he has become so popular that he is seen as Spider-Man's arch-nemesis, in terms of his popularity. Venom was ranked as the 22nd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time in IGN's list of the top 100 comic villains, 33rd on Empire's 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters, and was ranked as the 98th Greatest Comic Book Character Ever in Wizard magazine's 200 Greatest Comic Book Characters of all Time list.

So that's more or less about it.
Here's Venom POPOBE.

Hip Hop Popobe

Here comes another POPOBE from my collection.
This POPOBE can dance.

Hip hop is a form of musical expression and artistic culture that originated in African-American communities during the late 1970s in New York City. DJ Afrika Bambaataa outlined the four pillars of hip hop culture: MCing, DJing, breaking and graffiti writing. Other elements include beatboxing.

Since its emergence in the South Bronx, hip hop culture has spread around the world. Hip hop music first emerged with disc jockeys creating rhythmic beats by looping breaks (small portions of songs emphasizing a percussive pattern) on two turntables, more commonly referred to as sampling. 

This was later accompanied by "rap", a rhythmic style of chanting or poetry presented in 16 bar measures or time frames, and beatboxing, a vocal technique mainly used to imitate percussive elements of the music and various technical effects of hip hop DJ's. An original form of dancing and particular styles of dress arose among fans of this new music. These elements experienced considerable refinement and development over the course of the history of the culture.

And this is the Hip Hop Popobe

Star Wars : Darth Vader POPOBE

Had just created a POPOBE page in Facebook.
Click here to like the page.

Will upload more POPOBE to the page.
Today's post - Star Wars Darth Vader POPOBE.

Darth Vader is a central character in the Star Wars saga, appearing as the chief antagonist in the original trilogy and as the main protagonist in the prequel films. The films also establish that he was originally a Jedi Knight named Anakin Skywalker who fell to the dark side of the Force, he is also revealed to be the father of both Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa, the two main protagonists of the original trilogy. 

Luke ultimately redeems his father in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and Anakin sacrifices himself to save his son. The character was created by George Lucas and numerous actors have portrayed him. His appearances (as both Vader and Anakin) span all six Star Wars films, and is an important character in the expanded universe of television series, video games, novels, literature and comic books. He has also had an impact on popular culture such as politics and television, being commonly regarded as a synonym for power and evil. Psychiatrists have even considered him as a useful example to explain borderline personality disorder to medical students.

Here is a funny Darth Vader version - Hello Kitty

And here is the POPOBE version - My Darth Vader POPOBE.

A Cowboy would be a typical, dirty, horse riding type. He drank until he fell over, fought everyone around him, rode a horse everywhere, pushed cattle around the county, and was a lonely soul.

Presenting you my COWBOY POPOBE.
