    I still gotta wonder, when did Wiccan become an anime?

    I have a podcast about Digimon called the Digital Moncast, on Audio Entropy.

    so I'm guessing the saurian looking thing with the American flag on its head is the American Kaiju

    it tickles me that he resembles the 1998 Godzilla movie design

    That character was so milquetoast. I really don't get the decision to bump him up to a regular.

    Well his son knows Optimus Prime.

    I would kinda like to see Vision have "Cousin Vic" over to babysit the kids while he and his wife have a date

    Well he's Visions brother so technically Uncle Vic

    Or an evil twin brother named Bad Vision.

    He wears glasses. Evil glasses.

    Like this show doesn't have a history of turning that into something cool.

    That'd be interesting. Especially if Genis-Vell was brought into the comic because of it.

    the big downside there is that Songbird says that 1) the Wasp is one of her best friends in the future, which hasn't happened yet, and 2) that Hank got remarried to Wasp, which should never, ever happen

    one of Busiek's few flaws: being a fan of the Hank/Jan relationship

    And a somewhat dubious looking Twitter account posted an image of a fan taking a picture with Ezra Miller who says the actor told him Barry Allen will have long hair and that his costume has a "post apocalyptic" style to it.

    If true, Pffffthahahahaha

    It'd be nice if it was colored though so some of the stuff in it could be made out better.

    Wasn't there a shield agent named Ward in a Secret Wars tie-in (maybe beforehand?) hanging out with a Coulson? I feel like I remember that happening at some point.

    If this does happen, they need to get Deadpool rights back, because I want me a good Deadpool vs. Taskmaster scene.

    Ward's value is that he was a trusted milquetoast ally who, as a surprise twist, turned on everyone and has become a compelling villain in the process.

    You can't really port that directly to the comics. Either you start him out as an ally, and the reader is just waiting for him to turn out to be a badguy (which either does happen, or doesn't and makes me question why bothering to use Ward at all) or you start him off at a villain and have the ally stuff as backstory, in which you lose the shock of him stabbing everyone in the back.

    Ward as a character is an amalgamation of several comic book characters. One of which used to be a shield agent that got infected with a, skrull? space virus at one point and then was killed after turning evil.

    So at the end of the last chapter of X-Men 92, it says X-Men 92 will return, so that seems like it might be continuing in some form post secret wars

    What the hell does milquetoast even mean

    And why is everyone saying it all of a sudden?

    Because it sounds like a derogatory term for French Toast, and I will not abide that

    Timid, unassertive, bland. It comes from an old, old newspaper comic character.

    You're thinking of milktoast, which is typically served with a fine milksteak.

    It's an old style nova helmet, but I don't think it's Rich/nova prime, the sides by the mouth go straight down, rather than curved in

    Odd thought I realized.

    Kitty seems to only date Peter's? Piotr, Peter Parker in Ult, Peter Quill, Pete Wisdom?

    edit: is there maybe an embarrassing tattoo we don't know about? and this is just easier than getting it removed?
