Early reviews for "The Avengers" movie are in, and the adaptation of comic book super-heroes appears to promise non-stop action, surrounding sub-plots of intrugue. I always considered the Marvel grab bag as B-list superheroes, trailing well behind Batman and Superman. But the group, which includes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America, has developed into movie powerhouse. Here are excerpts from some reviews of the movie, which will be widely released Friday. -- Chicago Tribune: Seeing it in 2-D, the movie played well enough.

COLLEGE PARK - There are no commemorative T-shirts worn at practice to remind Sasho Cirovski and his Maryland men's soccer team of their controversial loss to Notre Dame in the final of last year's College Cup. There is no new slogan etched onto the walls or scrawled across a whiteboard in the The memory of what happened last December - and the seemingly obvious Fighting Irish hand ball that was missed early in what turned out to be a gut-wrenching, 2-1...

"The Avengers," the film adaptation of the 1960s television show, opens in theaters Aug. 14. From the looks of the trailers, it has updated the original to the point of unrecognizability.Luckily, A&E Home Video is releasing videos of episodes from the original series starring the preternaturally feline Diana Rigg and oh-so-suave Patrick Macnee. "The Avengers '67" hit video-store shelves Tuesday. The two boxed sets of three videos each contain episodes from Season 5, which aired in 1967 (the first time the show was seen in the United States)

The St. Mary's boys lacrosse team has a familiar opportunity going into Tuesday's regular season finale against Mount St. Joseph. Against rival Severn on Friday, Alexander Woodall dominated faceoffs and the Saints opened with seven of the game's first eight goals to cruise to a 19-9 win over the Admirals, keeping them in line to earn a spot in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs. If the No. 4 Saints beat the Gaels, they will claim the sixth and final playoff spot in the A Conference - something that eluded the team on the final day of regular season last year.

Fans of The Avengers will have to wait a little longer to see their favorite superheroes on the big screen. Marvel Entertainment Inc. said yesterday that it will debut the flick May 4, 2012, nearly a year after its previous launch date of July 15, 2011. The Avengers, which features a team of comic book characters, will be the culmination of a series of movies based on individual Marvel characters that will be released leading up to it. Iron Man 2, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as the title character, will launch May 7, 2010, as scheduled.

A few things you might consider doing instead of seeing "The Avengers": Walking the dog.Turning the compost.Re-grouting the bathtub.Starting your 1999 taxes.Buying a dog.Starting a compost heap.By now, the pop-culture literati (meaning people with nothing of substance or meaning to worry about) know that the entertainment media is in high feather over Warner Brothers' decision not to screen "The Avengers" for critics before it opened Friday.The studio gives us far too much credit. The American movie-going public is famously immune to the rants and raves of reviewers, making up their own minds by sallying forth intrepidly regardless of critical opprobrium.

It's a Wednesday evening at the Webster M. Kendrick Recreation Center in West Cold Spring. Outside there is the peace that typically comes with day's end in this quiet Northwest Baltimore neighborhood. But inside the gym it's a different story. There, young warriors prepare for battle. The Avengers Karate Club is about to meet.The smallest combatant is a 6-year-old barely 4 feet tall, the largest a teen-ager who has pushed past 6 feet. Their size difference doesn't mean they won't pair up to spar.

COLLEGE PARK - For Maryland point guard Seth Allen, the lasting memory of his team's 24-point loss at Florida State nearly a month ago was of the Seminoles hitting one 3-pointer after another. “I just remember walking in and they hit every shot,” Allen recalled Saturday at Comcast Center. “It was crazy. It was like 3, 3, 3. They really embarrassed us at Florida State.” Allen gave the Seminoles a similar memory. His career-high 32-point performance helped lead the Terps to an 83-71 victory and avengethe most one-sided loss in coach Mark Turgeon's three seasons at Maryland.

Franklin's football players had revenge on their minds going into Saturday's critical game at No. 8 Milford Mill, after the Millers knocked them out of the regional playoffs last season. The Indians got their payback, winning 35-18, but they tempered their reaction to the victory, remembering that they also won the regular-season meeting last year. "We will see them later," Indians junior receiver Jordan Adams said, referring to the possibility of another showdown in the Class 3A North regional playoffs.

No. 12 Salisbury's 7-4 upset of No. 8 Washington and Lee in the second round of the NCAA tournament last Saturday was immensely gratifying to the reigning national champion for two reasons. The Sea Gulls earned their 15th consecutive appearance in the quarterfinals since the tournament added a round prior to the quarterfinals for the 1998 tournament, and they made amends after dropping a 7-6 double-overtime decision to the Generals on Feb. 20. “It was nice to win the game because it obviously gets us to the quarterfinals,” coach Jim Berkman said Monday morning.

Perhaps you remember when Dr. Doom conquered the world. Or perhaps you don't. Sadly enough, even in this day and age, not everyone is comic book literate. Suffice it to say, then, that back in the 1980s, Marvel Comics published a graphic novel in which the villainous Victor von Doom achieved his dearest goal: to rule the world. And he made it a better place, too. Famine ended, the stock market climbed, crime fell, occupying armies withdrew, racial oppression vanished. Doom turned the planet into a paradise, and the only cost of his beneficence was free will.

After Black Guerrilla Family leader Naim King was killed on Halloween 2007, prosecutors say, fellow gang member David Hunter swore to avenge his death. He waited more than three years, prosecutors say. Finally, they say, in June 2011, he found Henry D. Mills and shot him in the back of the head. Two months later, a grand jury indicted Hunter on murder and handgun charges, but prosecutors continued to gather evidence in hopes that they could show that the killing was part of a larger battle taking place in the city streets.
