Finaly !!!!!!!!!!!

Check this out and tell me what you lot think !

Bangalore, India (June 14, 2004) — Marvel Comics & Gotham Entertainment Group – Indian publishing licensee of Marvel Comics and the leading publisher of international comic magazines in South Asia – announces the launch of Spider-Man India.

Spider-Man India interweaves the local customs, culture and mystery of modern India, with an eye to making Spider-Man’s mythology more relevant to this particular audience. Readers of this series will not see the familiar Peter Parker of Queens under the classic Spider-Man mask, but rather a new hero – a young, Indian boy named Pavitr Prabhakar. As Spider-Man, Pavitr leaps around rickshaws and scooters in Indian streets, while swinging from monuments such as the Gateway of India and the Taj Mahal.

Mumbai’s (Bombay’s) first web-swinging superhero will be joined by a reinterpretation of the classic Spider-Man villain, the Green Goblin -- reinvented as a Rakshasa, an Indian mythological demon.

“We feel this is one of the most exciting and unique projects in comic history,” said Gotham Entertainment Group CEO Sharad Devarajan. “Unlike traditional translations of American comics, Spider-Man India will become the first-ever ‘transcreation,’ where we reinvent the origin of a Western property like Spider-Man so that he is an Indian boy in Mumbai and dealing with local problems and challenges.”

I picked up the first issue last time I went comic shopping. It's...alright. Nothing special. I was hoping for something along the lines of DC's better Elseworlds titles, but it's pretty much just a rehash of the Spidey story, this time set in India. It does have some interesting threads that I hope the develop: tieing Spiderman's powers to Indian mysticism instead of a science experiment gone wrong, a mysterious man who may be the Indian version of the Watcher, or simply an incarnation of one of the Hindu gods (I'm real rusty on their divisions, so I won't insult anyone by guessing).

I'm going to give it another couple issues, but the first one didn't have much to interest me aside from the novelty of the setting.

and on a totally different note:

did you know and this is meant for any Bollywood Fans, that Shahrukh Khan and his son are doing the voices for the Indian version of The Incredibles.

Probably either has _javascript turned off in their browser, or are using something like Opera that doesn't recognize the "turn off your right-click" _javascript options.
