(The Fearless Defenders - 01)
Ok, the Jericho Drumm/Monica Rambeau image came from “Marvel Divas” #1.
(Look at his ABS, HER FACE, HIS FACE, THEY SHOULD FACE TOGETHER!)
The only detail I know about this comic is that #1 has great panels of an OTP I thought was nonexistent.
(Real talk, if there are scenes of this I will buy the trade paper back just to see them. I have a ship name for the two of them and everything.)
I hope you get something cool out of it tho! Let me know how it goes.
Now, the Taskmaster comic. It was simple called, “Taskmaster” and if you google search “Udon Taskmaster” you can generally find this specific series.
It was part of a 3 arc series starting with Deadpool, then Taskmaster with his own Mini series and then a character called Agent X.
I am fairly certain Agent X has not been seen or used in anything substantial since, like, 2004-ish?? Also, I didn’t care for the way Taskmaster was written for the first half of the Agent X series and that kinda soured me on the whole thing. It’s like Gail Simone read his mini series and thought, how can I make this character more of a chump for like 7 issues?)
Point is, the comics were drawn by Udon Studios. I love the art and combined with Ken Siu-Chong’s writing, I am no longer able to take any other interpretation of Taskmaster seriously. Great read, I think.
Hope that helps! >:3
So, I saw “Lucy” tonight (because for once we don’t have a kid and it was that or Sex Tape) and let me tell you. Yes, it’s racist but…
That’s probably not even the worst thing about it. It’s nonsensical. It’s boring. The movie loses all stakes about half way through. Morgan Freeman’s only job in the movie is to overtly state the thesis of the movie in hopes that if Morgan Freeman says it you will take it seriously. In fact he does so while giving a speech at a university, during which he postulates based it would seem entirely on hunches what the human brain could do at its full potential. All of that is not even to go into the fact that the central concept of the movie is pseudo science.
Oh! and it a particularly fun bit of racism, the Taiwanese business man who is (I guess) the bad guy in this movie has “people” everywhere to watch over the deliveries of his drugs who all see stuff “going down” and how do you know they are the bad guys? Cause they’re Asian and do sketchy camera looks after things go poorly. Seriously, this millionaire crime boss just sends Taiwanese extras out to be his people in other countries, just so you can be sure to know that Asian and bad are synonymous in this movie.
Oh and the moment where there’s about to be a shootout and the French cop IN PARIS asks the Taiwanese gangster if he speaks English in English. That was a thing.
I will say, Scarlet tries to save the movie, she really does, but Luc Besson is determined to go down in flames and spend the last 15 minutes of the movie doing a mediocre impression of 2001: A Space Odyssey. This movie is just without question or asterisk, plain ol’ bad.
This sounds like a reasonable idea!
It’s actually amazing to me that the casting seems to be as bad if not worse than The Ten Commandments which was made in 1956 and at least managed to cast a guy who looked kinda like he might be something other than white in the part of Ramses (Yul Brynner, who actually turns out to be half Russian and half Swiss).
However, I kinda do wanna go see something else at the theater just so I can help it beat that movie out, ya know?
We know there’s quite a big DC Comics fandom here on Tumblr, so we are hoping you’ll do us a favor and vote for the Smithsonian Libraries’ copy of Wonder Woman #1 as the most iconic image in the Smithsonian! The comic was created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston (who incidentally also helped invent the polygraph) as a way to bolster a more powerful feminine archetype. Not only does our branch, the Dibner Library of History and Technology, hold many Wonder Woman comics, it is also the home to Marston’s papers.
Wonder Woman #1 broke new ground with its hero’s winning combination of strength, smarts, and style. Her backstory has closely followed many of the major shifts in American history, merging fiction, modern technology, and early feminist morality. Today she continues to wield her signature Lasso of Truth, empowering her loyal fans both women and men alike.GO GO GO
anyone else noticing a trend here?
didn’t know ancient egyptians looked like mayo…
RHAMSES IM CHOKING LIKE THEY DIDNT SEE THE STATUES OR NOTHING
Ok but of course the servants and thieves are black ok i see yall
Brown Jesus from Palestine, what the fuck is this!
Tuya and Zipporah are Sub Saharan unarguable black. Like you Zipporah’s familial descendants are still living a pastoral life in the same place she was from, and they still look like her.
Queen Tuya is black, in fact her tomb was found after the front load of white supremacist archeologist raided Egypt, so surprisingly enough her features were kept in tact on all of her antiquities as was her full name which also described where she was from…modern day Ethopian/Chad/Sudan area.
No matter how much fake tanner, pretty pretty hair pieces, faux box braids Sigourney will look ridiculous.
So it’s real nice to know that every reoccurring woman of visible East African descent is non existent and every male of visible African decent is a poor criminal. Awesome, and super accurate.
Funny how all the roles with no names focused on servitude got plenty of Black folks.
Wow is this movie some unacceptable racist nonsense. Skip.
Me (with jackiecrofts) at the Action Lab panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday talking about our comic, Nutmeg. Thanks to everyone who came out to see me be nervous in person.
The fact that you brought a picture of Jackie with you for the panel is the damn cutest thing I’ve ever seen…though it may give the impression that she’s dead. She’s not dead, is she?
Here it is! The official unveiling of Nutmeg at Action Lab Comics on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con! Jackie and I are super excited about bringing you the adventures of Poppy and Cassia.
Betty and Veronica and Heathers meets Breaking Bad in James Wright and Jackie Crofts’ Teen Baking Crime Saga!
