The Destroyer is a big draw for me. I don't get why they would be showing the Infinity Gauntlet though. It should never be assembled in the first place (you can crush nearly any being in existence with it), and carries a huge story line with it.

Great stuff.

I first got started on fountain pens when an older classmate sold me one of German make for about $8. Since then I've collected about five. The ones which have gotten the most use are a Chinese Hero brand pen given to me by my mother (it had sat in a drawer for years) and a Parker 51 I found in a cabinet drawer belonging to my grandmother.
