Kid Loki and Miss America shenanigans at Emerald City Comic Con!! Photos by Cliff Nordman! Kid Loki is Jade!
I wish I could cosplay as Kid Loki or Miss America. WHY AREN’T THERE ANY ADULT MALE SUPERHEROES?!?
If you’re currently in the market for a comic with a spectacularly dumb premise, might I recommend Superior Spider-Man?
Otto Octavius (yes, Doc Ock) has taken over Peter Parker’s body, while Peter has died in Otto’s place.
And it should all last about ten minutes.
Oh, sure, here in the real world we’d have to rely on crude measures to detect the mind-swap like the fact that Parker’s use of the word “buffoon” has skyrocketed, but over on Earth 616 things are a little different.
And that’s just for starters. Spidey hangs out with those guys, crosses paths with them, fights baddies with them like every couple of minutes. Richards and Stark are, hands down, smarter than Doc Ock. They’re both technologists. And they have both had plenty of run-ins with mind-swaps, mind-control, clones, robots, Skrulls, and umpteen other similar this-is-not-the-person-we-think-it-is situations.
Richards and Stark will both, out of basic necessity, have developed countermeasures for any such tech, and they will doubtless be superior to Otto’s tech. Hell, they’ve probably shared notes. The second Otto swings past The Baxter Building or Avengers Tower alarms would go off and the guy would be brought down pronto, bundled in stretchy flesh or with an iron boot on his neck.
Stephen Strange is even more fun though. He’s just been reunited with The All-Seeing Eye of Agamotto. What powers does this artifact have? Oh, well, among other things just the ability to see through all disguises and illusions. Golly, I wonder if that might come in useful. And Strange is not exactly a dumbass. Before putting on his magic pants he was a world-renowned neurosurgeon. A guy like that isn’t going to be too easily fooled.
And then you’ve got the brain-trust at Horizon Labs where Peter works, Daredevil and his enhanced senses and ninja training who is essentially a human lie-detector, a whole slew of psychics and telepaths, and blah blah blah.
I’ve enjoyed the Spidey re-boot in Amazing, but this doesn’t make a lick of sense. I really hope Marvel sort their shit out on this pronto.
Batman spends too long on tumblr, experiences feels, runs away to blog about it.
This is a real thing by Stuart immonen
My heart goes boom.
I am now picturing Immonen sat, naked for some reason I don’t know probably because you love him or something, tears in his eyes, rocking back and forth as he tries to fit fifty-odd birds into a single picture.
It seems Justin Jordan is serialising his excellent THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE over at his tumblr. I dug it so much I gave a quote for the trade (which is obviously available to buy), so it’s well worth following him to see it.
To state the obvious, it’s incredibly bloody.
