Did Thor: Ragnarok Turn Hulk Into A Mass Murderer?

Thor: Ragnarok was a fun, fast-paced, dynamic superhero film that restored the mighty Thor to greatness, but it may have also given us an incredible Hulk bent on murder. Wait. What? Did you and I see the same movie? I’m dead serious.

You’ll recall that at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron a sadful Hulk — unable to control his rage — fled the scene in a Stark Quinjet, headed for parts unknown. Sometime later he appeared on the backwater planet of Sakaar, where he was (somehow) tossed into a gladiator pit. Jeff Goldblum’s maniacal Grandmaster pitted the green goliath against all comers (although we do not see any of his previous bouts). Hulk not only survived, he prospered and became the face of the Grandmaster’s endless tournament.

Ariz. Spree Killer Murdered Mom, Stepfather and 7 More in 2017, Police Claim

Phoenix police say they have linked the slayings of nine people to a 35-year-old man who has been behind bars since Dec. 17, when he was arrested for allegedly murdering his mother and stepfather.

Cleophus Cooksey Jr. has been described as a suspected serial killer by investigators, who claim they have uncovered evidence tying him to as many as seven other unsolved homicides over less than a month, PEOPLE confirms.

His mother, 56-year-old Rene Cooksey, and his stepfather, Edward Nunn, 54, were fatally shot on Dec. 17.

Authorities also alleged that Cleophus killed Andrew Remillard and Parker Gregory Smith, who were shot to death on Nov. 27, and Salim Richards, who was killed five days later.

What’s more, investigators suspect he was behind the Dec. 11, shooting death of his ex-girlfriend’s brother Jesus Bonifacio Real, the Dec. 13 killing of LaTorrie Beckford and, two days later, the slaying of Kris Cameron.

A day before he

Supposedly, someone really *did* dip a magazine page in Versace’s blood, just like in "American Crime Story"

In the explosive season premiere of the second season of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, American Crime Story, we watched as spree killer Andrew Cunanan (played by Darren Criss) murdered fashion designer Gianni Versace (played by Édgar Ramírez) outside his Miami mansion.

The Assassination of Gianni Versacelargely based on Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favors, is a dramatized examination of Cunanan’s months-long murder spree in 1997, leading up to his murder of Versace. The premiere episode, “The Man Who Would Be Vogue,” largely follows the immediate aftermath of Versace’s murder, from his longtime partner Antonio D’Amico (played by Ricky Martin) discovering the shot designer outside the gates of their home and the arrival of Donatella Versace (played by Penelope Cruz) to the public’s reaction to the murder.

But like the best of dramatizations before it, the season of ACS is based on actual events and people, while also adding additional details to serve the purpose of the

Then Again TV Series Incarnates on ABC

Karma is a bitch. This can be especially true for law enforcement officers. Even good cops make decisions that haunt them, sometimes legally and other times spiritually. ABC Studios is developing a reincarnation police procedural called Then Again, according to Tracking Board. Then Again is being spearheaded by executive producer Peter Dowling, who wrote Flightplan.

Of course there’s nothing procedural about supernatural cops. Then Again will tail Steven “Coop” Cooper of the LAPD. Detectives have long memories, it comes with the job, and Coop has a longer memory than anyone on the force.  He is being medicated for it. For as long as Coop can remember, he can remember even longer. The LA cop is trying to suppress past life memories. He puts it to work when he is on the hunt for a mass murderer, and is forced to relive his past life.

Late Wednesday, President TrumpDonald John TrumpDems flip Wisconsin state Senate seat Sessions: ‘We should be like Canada’ in how we take in immigrants GOP rep: ‘Sheet metal and garbage’ everywhere in Haiti MORE, who finds new ways to demean the office of the presidency, continuing his failure to respect the truth with his attacks against the free press, released his “Fake News Awards.”

Regarding the merits of Trump’s attack against the free press, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) got it right in his Wednesday  speech on the Senate floor. Flake accurately charged that when Trump calls the free press the enemy of the people, he is repeating the same charge leveled by Soviet dictator and mass murderer Josef Stalin before his demise.

While Trump should not be equated with Stalin on most issues, they do share

Jordanne Barr and Jordan Adamczyke survived a nightmare while attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, as a gunman opened fire on the crowd.

Barr was shot in the arm and side. Her fiancé, Adamczyke, shielded her during the shooting to prevent her from being shot again.

Now, they get a chance to spend a lifetime healing together with the help of the Fairy Godmother Foundation.

Barr and Adamczyk don’t have to worry about a thing, with the foundation picking up the entire wedding tab, from the gown to venue.

The couple plans to use their future life together to honor those who lost their lives during the mass shooting.

Mass shooting predictions by state study

MASON CITY, Iowa – According to a report from Safe On The Scene, there were a total of 345 mass shootings that took place in 2017. Now information has been gathered to find out just how safe your state can be.

The report says the state of Iowa is on track to report nearly 11 percent less violent crimes per 100,000 people by 2030 and 100 percent less hate crimes.

The projections are determined based on crime rates and FBI-data.

But one thing is for sure, as a society we are learning how to prevent and be prepared for these terrible events.

Paul St. Martin, who is a campus life director for Youth for Christ in Mason City, says he sees firsthand how local schools have taken security measures due to these tragic events.

Guest view: Time to stop drug packages in US mail

With people across the country dying at the rate of 53 a day from overdoses of fentanyl and similar compounds — now the leading killers in the opioid epidemic — efforts to stop this scourge ought to come from every corner of the federal government.

But even as President Donald Trump has declared the opioid epidemic a national emergency, some agencies have failed to act as if it is one.

Just last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama administration policy on marijuana, signaling that the Justice Department may prosecute people selling or using the drug. Regardless of your views on marijuana, deploying limited federal resources to prosecute pot cases amid a raging opioid epidemic is like telling firefighters to inspect smoke detector batteries in one home while the house next door is engulfed in flames.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Postal Service could
