First off, a quick favor to ask: if you happen to be one of the few who actually likes some of the pics on this site, i want you to know that a.) we very much appreciate it, and b.) you’re absolutely welcome to re-post some pics on blogs/boards/forums/sites…just please either link back here, or at least leave the veidt.com watermark/logo thing on them. Cool? Cool.
I make no pretense as to being any kind of Marvel fangirl. While there are several characters i like alot (mostly She-Hulk, Taskmaster, Daredevil/Bullseye/Elektra, Green/Hob/anyone with Goblin in their name, Mystique, and Frank Castle), beyond picking up some Runaways and Dark Avengers issues and keeping current on the movies, i have no fucking clue what’s currently happening in the 616.
According to the Marvel books i inherited as a kid, Carol Danvers aka Ms. Marvel was a former Avenger who had her mind wiped and powers stolen by Sookie Rogue. I gather she’s come back in a big way in recent years, to the point where she’s considered Marvel’s most prominent female character, but having sat out the Secret Invasion and most of Marvel’s other big events over the last 5 years, fuck if i know anything about it. So why do her on the site? Because she looks dope, and i liked her Marvel Universe action figure ever so much.
More pics and opportunities to judge, after ze jump.
Speaking of the Marvel Universe action figure line, i just saw the new Mary Jane figure last night. Jesus Christ. Did Hasbro outsource that one to Mattel’s Infinite Heroes sculptors? I almost bought the fucking thing as an alternative punishment to spanking or time-outs, for any unfortunate kids i may have someday. If they misbehave, they’d have to play with it for 10 minutes. I’m thinking about maybe buying Takers, when it comes out on blu-ray, for pretty much the same purpose. I’ll either have the most well-behaved kids in the neighborhood, or end up in C.P.S. jail.
It’s been rumored Ms. Marvel may turn up in summer 2012’s The Avengers movie…which seems a bit like a given. There’s no way Joss Wheedon can limit himself to one female character, nobody actually cares about Wasp (based on a scientific poll of 3 people i just bugged on Google chat), Spider-Woman is probably off limits, and there’s the free brand building in having a character with the word Marvel in her name. Of course she’ll be in the movie.
Anyway, sorry for the hold-up on posting these…was going to post a different set, but didn’t have time to edit them. Thanks Jessica for making it look dope, and keep your eyes peeled for part 2.
