I love that the current storyline in Thunderbolts is that the half of the current roster who are actual villains are now in a scenario where they have to once again lie and pretend to be heroes. It’s like coming home.

The latest arc of Invincible makes me sad for taking apart one of my favorite romantic pairings in comics. Oh, well. Robot’s descent was destined to happen sometime, I guess.

I don’t have much else to add this week other than the stuff I’ll cover in tomorrow’s Brave New World; Bold New Direction. So instead, here’s something to file under “Goddamn it, internet. Really?”

  1. Wow. I dropped Deadpool last month, but that panel was obviously coming, as is the ‘Evil Deadpool’ coming up arc and how it gets there. Haha!

  2. That Penguin miniseries is looking to be one of the better books DC has.

  3. I hate to admit it, but Deadpool #44 was a great issue of the series. the problem is, the point Way was trying to make could have- SHOULD HAVE- happened 20, maybe even 30 issues ago.

  4. Also, the Huntress and The Rinse are great books y’all should be reading. You know who ELSE didn’t read those books? HITLER!

  5. I hate to be that guy, but that kick Huntress is doing bugs the hell out of me. She’d have to be super flexible to even get her leg up there, her knee is twisted at an odd angle, and I can’t really imagine being able to get any force out of a strike that requires that kind of contortion. I know comics =/= real life, but it’d be so much easier to just break one of his kneecaps in that situation.

  6. I’m glad you brought this up, Gaijin D:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSMjAZvUGFM – 2:20 (horrible tunes sorry)

  7. You know, I’ve seen both of those movies, too. Obviously, this isn’t impossible (though Huntress still has her leg twisted oddly), but I still think you’d lose a lot of power doing it. Of course, kicking someone in the head in any manner generally isn’t the most efficient thing you can do in a real world situation, anyhow. Even in something like UFC, where they’re regularly used, they’re usually preceded by softening up an opponent with punches and leg kicks.

    Sorry. I guess this is a case of studying real martial arts making it harder for me to enjoy fake martial arts.
