Ares – the God of War! His relentless brutality and his bloodthirsty drive to attain victory at any cost earned him only scorn from his fellow gods in the Greek pantheon, and exile from Olympus. After thousands of years living as a man and fighting in man’s bloody, petty conflicts, Ares joins the ranks of Earth’s mightiest heroes – Marvel Legends.
As Thor, Jane wields Mjolnir, and like those before her, she has been bestowed with power equal to that once possessed by the Odinson by the hammer. Very few people know of Thor’s real identity as Jane Foster. Two of them are Captain America, Thor’s teammate at the Avengers who saw her revert to her human form when stripped of Mjolnir, and Doctor Strange, with his ability to see through magic spells. Gwenpool also knows of Thor’s identity due to her extensive knowledge of Marvel Comics.
The three Asgardian goddesses of fate, the Norns, are said to have warned the Asgardian gods that Hela would prove to be a great danger to them. Odin, ruler of Asgard, decreed that Hela would become goddess and ruler of the spirits of the dead on the day of her maturity. These spirits were in the other-dimensional realms of Hel and Niflheim, two more of the Nine Worlds, both of which Hela ruled. However, Odin himself directly ruled the souls of Asgardians and their human worshippers who died in battle as heroes, and had the palace of Valhalla built in a distant section of Asgard to house them.
Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
Ted Sallis, was attempting to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum that created Captain America. However, he was betrayed by his lover, Ellen Brandt, and Sallis had to flee from A.I.M. agents, who saw their potential of such a formula for their own evil ends. He injects himself with the serum, but after crashing in a swamp and apparently drowning is transformed into a swamp creature through a combination of his formula and, as later explained, magical forces extant in the area. Sallis’ mind was apparently lost, although on rare occasions he could briefly return to consciousness within his monstrous form, and even to his human form such as when he fought Ben Grimm, who took the appropriation of his own nickname a little too personally.

Today we are taking a look at a Marvel Legends set that dropped right before Comic Con 2017. Entertainment Earth has an exclusive early run of the Star Lord and Ego Guardians of the Galaxy 2 pack before it’s wider release (in stock there right now). The set features Star Lord in his shorter jacket with an unmasked and masked head, 2 blasters and a Walkman. Ego features 2 heads for Kurt Russell, one smiling and one angry. Both set of heads use the new digital printing for face paint and are pretty good unless you dig in with a microscope (and sometimes our cameras here at Toyark do that). Ego’s heads have less of a paint issue and more of sculpt – both look very similar. The fine details of the expressions didn’t transfer into the mass production molds. All in all it’s a solid GotG set and cool to see Kurt Russell in action figure form! Read on to check out our pics courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
