Just felt like someone needed to read this today.
If you want a print version for your bookshelf it’s in my short story collection The Antler Boy and Other Stories.
Hands down, my favorite recurring joke.
You forgot one
okay but not only was iron man not an a-list hero, he was being played by an actor who was considered by most to be washed up
and the movie was a success
if marvel can take those risks why can’t it take a risk on a female hero
it was dirECTED BY THE GUY WHOSE BEST MOVIE WAS ELF. rdj was so inconsistent that he had basically been blacklisted for years and he had to fight for the role and it was about the alcoholic in the robot suit and no one expected this film to be successful
basically iron man was kind of a fluke but it kicked off the BILLION-DOLLAR FRANCHISE that marvel is jerking off to today don’t tell me they can’t take a chance on a female-lead film THEIR SUCCESS IS BASED ON THE RISK THEY TOOK WITH THE FIRST IRON MAN MOVIE DON’T COME AT ME WITH THAT WEAK NOISE
dude sometimes i look back at 2008 and wonder how the hell iron man happened
i literally do not understand
was everyone high in 2008

You’ve seen Black Widow as an Avenger and even an Agent of Shield. But on her own time she searches for atonement for her past as a KGB assassin—in ways of which those teams just wouldn’t approve. From the darkest corners of the Marvel Universe, Nathan Edmondson (Who is Jake Ellis?) and Phil Noto (Thunderbolts, X-23) bring you a new ongoing series as gorgeous and mysterious as Nastasha Romanov herself!
A lettered preview is out for Black Widow #1, and it looks gorgeous — the issue itself is coming out on January 8th.
When you watch Torchwood there is a warning at the very beginning that some scenes may offend or disturb people, so if you allow your children to sit and watch it with you that’s your responsibility, it’s not ours anymore. We kissed, we held each other, we lay on top of each other in bed… and there were lots of complaints about that. Nobody complained that I was shot in the head four times, there were burning people in ovens, that I was stabbed by a mob of 50 people hundreds of times, and I was hanging dripping my blood in a pit. So that’s what confuses me, because you’re not complaining about gay sex, you’re complaining about two men kissing. And it’s 2011. And people say, “Well why should we have that on television?” Because the BBC have to represent the greater public — and there are gay people out there who pay their television license. For people to complain, that’s your prerogative — but you know what, none of them turned it off! They were just embarrassed because it put them in a position where they had to explain things to their kids or their family which probably should have been explained a long time ago.
This is why I love him, and why I will always love him.
The fact that people complain about sex, while never complaining about violence is so very revealing about our society.
IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE EXPLAINING “COUNTRYCIDE” AND “CHILDREN OF EARTH” BUT NOT SAME-SEX RELATIONSHIPS TO YOUR CHILDREN
GET THE ACTUAL F*** OUT.
American TV needs to take a lesson from the BBC (and John Barrowman).
For all that Remender tends to default to killing characters to make his books shocking and thus likely to get better sales numbers, he’s been doing an abysmal job with Captain America. Readership of the comic dropped by over 50 percent between issues 1 and 3 (form 123,667 sales of issue 1 to 59,836 sales of issue 3), and dropped nearly another 50 percent between issue 2’s 64,377 sales and issue 12’s 38,684 sales. That’s a drop in readership of almost 70 percent from issue 1 to issue 12. In October of 2013, Captain America sales were outsold by titles such as Deadpool Kills Deadpool, Kick-Ass, Hawkeye, Superior Spider-Man Team Up Special, and the interestingly named Afterlife with Archie. One of Marvel’s flagship titles was outsold by a comic about Deadpool killing alternate versions of himself and something named Afterlife with Archie. Clearly, whatever Rick Remender is trying to sell us in Captain America, fewer and fewer people are buying it.
He needs to stop (via vengerturtle)
Okay but seriously Deadpool Kills Deadpool and Hawkeye are brilliant. Like, say what you want about Captain America sucking and I won’t correct you because you’re not wrong, as much as it hurts to say that, but there’s no shame in losing to Deadpool Kills Deadpool.
I can’t speak to Afterlife With Archie but now I kind of want to pick it up.
I could’ve sworn zombies have been in so long they’re finally back out. This is outselling Cap? This really does say more about Remender than anything about undead!Archie comics.
Staff was taking six-month-old tiger cub Akaasha on her daily walk around the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom when she saw Mavrick, a 14-month-old Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. The pair examined each other from all angles possible - then the dolphin blew an approving bout of bubbles towards the tiger. [Article]
