SAM, WHY?




My sister calls this the "Vote for these abs" speech. Even though he's actually an activist, not an elected official. w/e, same career track.

To be clear on that second pic, those round things on the rock are paua. They're like mussels - they live underwater. A medium-sized one would be about the size of a loosely-made fist. Looking at the rock bed, it's probably a bit taller than I am.

Sounds like a large river that was dammed by debris just broke through as well, they should have had time to evacuate though.

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.

Remember that time when Hawkeye got booted in favour of the Falcon due to affirmative action? (Avengers v1 #181, 1979)

Meanwhile on Counter-Earth (Captain America v3), the super soldier serum has an unexpected side effect:


do I gotta spoiler warning for 20 year old comics? 2 more pics )

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! )

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.

RP highlights today is a mix of Ianto dropping "I'm familiar with safe words" in a conversation with Twelve and Henry Mills explaining Easter egg hunts to Laura with "adults are weird".

Speaking of I caught up on All-New X-Men 5&6 and All-New Wolverine 6 and oh, I have feels about how damn awesome Laura is in these.

cut for pics )

Also, there's this bit in ANXMen #6 and I just have to have a moment of happy for when something I make up for RP becomes canon, re: Laura's sleeping habits (=not in bed, hiding in corners, etc). An earlier ANXMen had her rescuing a puppy as well which supports my "Laura loves dogs (except German shepherds)" headcanon.
