Great Moments in Comics Monday!

Batman, quick! The Joker just escaped Arkham and is on a killing spree!

Oh. Never mind. I see you're busy.

So, we're back to the Avengers, it seems. Like I said before, it was a time for some good moments in the Avengers, including lines like this one:

I'm going to incorporate that into conversation at some point today. I hope you do the same.

So, blah, blah, blah... Kang the Conqueror, Thor and Moondragon in the Wild West, and Wanda decides it's her place to tell Iron Man how to use his own armor:

That is such a woman thing. Beloved will tell me to do things you would tell a three year-old, like not to step on dog poop in the yard. Mind you, she has lost two pairs of memory foam lined slippers in the last two weeks out there, but when it comes to avoiding the dog poop in the yard, I clearly need her help. I'm only a 41 year-old man.

Say, isn't it time for a visit from Ben and Phyliss Green from Jamaica, Queens?

Yeah it is, baby!

Friend Kyle thinks I am way too tough on Marvel heroines, which isn't true. I just don't like things that suck, like Storm, Sue Richards, the Wasp, the Scarlet Witch and Moondragon. However, Avengers #144 finally brought us a cool female character:

I always thought the Hellcat rocked, not only because of her risque name, but because I first saw her in the Defenders and usually I like any character that was in the Defenders. Except Moondragon. Who sucks.

See you tomorrow!

So, who milks a sow? I have never heard of pig milk before. Oh well, it is the Marvel Universe :-)

I like The Defenders too. Doc Strange, Namor, Valkyrie. I even liked it when they were "evil."

D.B. Echo said...

I'm no expert on these matters, but don't pigs have relatively short legs? That milking stool would be more like a mechanic's dolly.

De said...

The thought of pig milk repulses me almost as much as the rat milk from that episode of The Simpsons.

CB Robinson said...

Moondragon sucks? Dude have you been reading the same comic books I have? Moondragon doesn't suck as bad as Sue Storm or Wanda Maximoff

SallyP said...

Pig milk eh? THAT'S different.

I have to concur that any woman as written by Stan Lee or Roy Thomas was a mess. A whining, fainting and useless mess.

Hellcat is a great character.
An odd pet peeve of mine that I'll always check when she appears is if the artist can't bother drawing her claws properly and gives her regular gloves and boots.
It's my only real problem with her most recent series.

Sue started get pretty cool when Byrne wrote her, I mean apart from when Byrne was being kind of a shithead about women.

All the Marvel women were originally meant to be window dressing, so of course they were pathetic. But they got better over time, no thanks to their original creators.
