Um so in the last few days

- they arrested the Golden State Killer (EAR/ONS)
- Cosby was found guilty (at least there was some kind of lead up/warning for this one)
- the Korean war ended

Any other problems from the middle of last century we can get cleared away by the end of this week???

Marvel faves with current titles:
Sam Wilson
Elsa Bloodstone (!)
Nico Minoru (!!)
Laura Kinney

Marvel faves without current titles:
Maya Lopez

But at least Maya's alive again. TJ Wagner presumably died in an incursion since she was in an alternate universe.

Anyway I'm super fucking stoked for Monsters Unleashed and RUNAWAYS.

I found an archive of strange comic book storylines and it's glorious. Featuring: Luke Cage goes to Latveria to demand the $200 Dr Doom owes him, Wasp and She-Hulk rate the Avengers men for hunkiness (Jen only gave Sam a 5! If that isn't heresy enough, that's the same score she gave John Walker), Steve rates the Avengers on Avengerability (he doesn't rate Sam very well either but that's because Sam hated being an Avenger, so it's fair), "other vehicles talk smack to Wonder Woman's robot plane", "that time Superman gained the ability to shoot mini-Supermen out of his hands", Matt Murdock's twin brother Mike, and what I was actually looking up which was the original Capwolf.

When you go to double-check something on the wiki page of your canonically dead character and THEY GOT BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE HOLY SHIT.

Okay I just love this. (click for big)

From Sam Wilson's origin, in Captain America v1 #118. It's so brilliantly 1969 with how they make everything so easy. (117 also featured the Red Skull declaring that he couldn't be bothered watching Steve die and leaving, even though Steve had already beat up two of the four guys trying to kill him.) I guess I shouldn't laugh though, it's not that unrealistic... I mean, they spent hours and hours practicing until Sam became a highly accomplished fighter. He is now swifter! surer! stronger! He is the Falcon!

Anyway after that they part ways and Sam goes to hang out in Harlem kicking ass. Steve goes to visit one day and finds out that the police are looking to arrest Sam. Apparently that whole two days they spent together on a tropical island were really, really intense.

He knows what makes the Falcon tick. He understands him on a microscopic level! To be fair of course, two days is about fourteen years in comics time. (Spoilers: Sam was framed by members of the Maggia passing themselves off as a black version of the KKK to start a race war for... some reason? Apparently it was going to make it easier for them to take over, though, because 1971 in comics.)

Also here's the page that mentions Sam was hired to help rebuild Ground Zero. Because being a hero isn't just about hitting people.

You all really don't want to see how ridiculous my dork board on pinterest is right now. It's basically full of silly Sam memes and headcanons and Anthony Mackie/Sebastien Stan interviews.

SPOILER for 1.04 )

I might have got Netflix solely because Luke Cage came out tonight and I'm watching it now and it's awesome. I still hate streaming because we have a 50gb/month bandwidth allowance and uggghhhh to using all that bandwidth on something I can't keep but at least Netflix has captions and I dug my proper headphones out to hear better so I actually know everything people are saying.

PS Misty Knight is fierce.

The new All-New X-Men features Bobby going to a gay club, it's super cute. I also found the All-New Wolverine Annual in which Wolverine and Spider-Gwen switch bodies and oh my god. (I'm not sure why Laura has such trouble with Gwen's spider-strength though. She's canonically supposed to be super strong herself. I guess they're just... slightly different amounts of super strong?) I'm almost tempted to canon update Laura again but I did that like two months ago so it can really, really wait. Memories of being a Spider-Gwen are not that important.

Also I watched like all of season two Dark Matter that's out so far (I think there's only one more episode which is airing in a couple more days) and we found out Five's name and age and there's been so much character development and it's all tremendously exciting. Three and Five even had a whole episode where they bonded together it was fucking adorable. She also made a very dramatic entrance at one point.

"We've caught all of them except the girl. But she's of little consequence." Ha.

Also I updated my character page and figured out what to do with having two games on there and made it really pretty.

I finally got around to just subscribing to All-New X-Men and All-New Wolverine on Comixology so next month I'll get them automatically when they're released, yarrrr. I didn't actually bother grabbing anything from the newest Wolverine though.

I'm the #$%^& Wolverine! )

Simone Biles on floor... that was incredible. She knew going in she had the gold and just nailed it completely. Perfect landings on her tumbling passes, huge smile the whole way through. Just totally amazing. Especially after so many of the other high ranking gymnasts had slips and falls. (Seda Tutkhalian has got to be kicking herself I think, she looked like she psyched herself out near the start of the beam and just couldn't recover after that.)

Also Eythora Thorsdottir came in ninth which is pretty good though they didn't show her performing which is sad. Her floor routine is really fun to watch. Elyssa Downie, Rebeca Andrade and Elsabeth Black all looked good too but I think let the pressure get to them a little. WHATEVER that was all just fantastic to watch.

Read the new All-New X-Men which has a preview for next month that looks very shippy. Then I caught up on A-Force and NGGGG it's so great. I love Singularity. And the guy they have doing the art for the current arc is fantastic, I just added a handful more icons for [info]withbloodshed.

Guess what it's time for? Best frames of Wolverine #9!

4 pics, feat. Iron Man and Captain Marvel )

Maria Hill is just facepalming through this whole thing I think. Gabby is developing into the comic relief and it's pretty adorable. Though it bugs the hell out of me that they consistently just shrug off the possibility of her being injured ever. She can't feel pain! She has no idea if she's bleeding internally or has broken bones or anything and no one ever bothers to check her over! Sorry but not being able to feel pain is basically the worst super power ever. Right up there with literally being made of glass.

Anyway it looks like the next one might have some AU Wolverine!fam feels so I'm looking forward to it. Now I'm going to read the new X-Men.

From Twitter:

New Zealand has some fantastic media talent, especially with movies (some of our tv is a little more mediocre but the movies are brilliant). This is one of the director/producer/writer/actors from What We Do In The Shadows, the truly wonderful vampire mockumentary, who's also directing Thor: Ragnarok.

Just had this completely random memory of how in Blurred Lines Pepper would keep asking Rufus dating advice and Rufus was like "why are you asking me this I don't know oh my god".

They were kind of awesome.

Part of me thinks it would be sort of amazing if we got a 616 Wilson Fisk at Jaha.
