Powet Alphabet: N is for Nick Fury

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

In a universe full of Super Soldiers, gods, mutants, monsters, robots, and just about everything else you can imagine, there is one organization that we can rely upon to keep tabs on all the madness and keep everything, and everyone, in line. That’s the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Division, more commonly known as S.H.I.E.L.D. And for the longest time, one man has been at the center of it all: Nicholas Fury. Nick has been many things during his lifetime: an amateur boxer, a WWII hero, a CIA agent, and a super spy. His most notable job was the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. While he may not shoot beams out of his eyes, have adamantium claws, wear a suit of armor, or have the proportionate strength of a spider, he is just as vital, if not more vital to the Marvel Universe, as any of its greatest meta-human champions.

Powet Alphabet: N is for Ninja

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

N is for (Teenage Mutant) Ninja (Turtles)

Ninja are so good at what they do that Very little is written about them. Well, shyeah! I’m surprised we even knew that they existed, that’s just how good they are.

Before news of these mighty warriors reached western shores, their characteristics were already steeped in mysticism and wild claims — all the better to maintain their cover and strike when one is least expecting.

But when popular media got a hold on such a novel idea, all the sort of iconographic garbage you can expect from commercialism started to dilute their true nature. That is why N is for Ninja, and why you should read on to find out why everything you thought you knew about them is wrong.

Powet Alphabet: N is for Nintendo Entertainment System

nes

During the early 80s, the video game market was in danger of dying off before it could take off. Too many manufacturers were releasing too many consoles no one cared for, and developers were making too many games that were mediocre at best. This would lead to a diminished demand for them in the consumer market as well. If that wasn’t enough, the home computer market was slowly beginning to emerge, as PCs were becoming cheaper and more easily accessible to consumers. It would be a fool’s errand for a company to attempt to reenter the market, yet Japanese developer Nintendo would jump in the market head first.
