Instead of a new episode of Agents of SHIELD this past week, they showed a special called Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe. In it, they chronicle all of the Avengers movies/shows, starting with Iron Man. They ended the show with previews of the upcoming movies: Captain America 2 (which releases in a couple of weeks) and the second Avengers (which I think releases next summer).
Now, when they talked about some of what happens in the new Cap, I understood it. It all made sense: both as a continuation of the Avengers storyline, plus as just a Captain America story. The part I’m confused about has to do with what they said to expect with The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Only silence answered him. He was beginning to get angry. “Look,” he announced, “I came because you said you had por….I mean, adult entertainment. If there’s none here, I’m going home.”
The light turned on, causing him to momentarily shield his eyes. Directly in front of him, but was covered by the darkness, was Skidmark. He was tied to a chair, with his mouth gagged. Captain Procrastination pointed and laughed for a minute before making any movement that could be considered helpful. Continue reading →
After doing my post participating in Matticus’ Tug-of-War, it put me in the mood to read comics again. While I got rid of most of my comics years ago, when I stopped collecting (I just didn’t have the room for them anymore), I still have some of my trade paperbacks. To get my comics fix, I looked through those.
I noticed that I only have books from two characters now. It’s one character from each DC and Marvel. From DC, it’s Nightwing. From Marvel, it’s Daredevil. While I loves me some Nightwing, I had to grab one of the Daredevil books because…well…. Marvel.
Welcome to a special edition of Versus. My writing partner, Matticus, has issued a challenge to the blog-o-sphere. He wants us all to take sides in the DC vs. Marvel debate. I have already given my answer to this topic on a couple of different occasions on this blog, but I will do so again for his benefit.
(Narrator’s Note: Welcome back, dear readers, to everyone’s favorite superhero, Captain Procrastination. For the past couple of months, your hero has been incredibly busy saving people’s lives and rescuing those in distress. Because of how busy he was, he was unable to share his adventures with you. He’d like to apologize for the delay, and promise that it won’t happen again.
There. I said it. Now, where’s the hundred bucks you told me you’d give me for reading that garbage? And what’s with the “I promise it won’t happen again” bullshit? Procrastination is in your name. Of course it’s going to happen again.
What’s that? Yes, I know the microphone is still on. I’m not a moron like you. Sure, I’ll turn it off…. when you give me the money you owe me. 20, 40, 60, 80, 100. Pleasure doing business with you.
(Narrator’s Note: Welcome back, dear readers, to another adventure of your hero, Captain Procrastination. Your hero would like for me to tell you that he was NOT watching pornography in the last episode. In his mind, that would be an undignified thing for a hero to do. I’m tired of covering for him, however, so I will not be telling you that. I will no longer be wasting my time playing spin doctor for that fat piece of shi…Hey, what are you doing?….Ow. Give me that microphone back…OW! MY NIPPLE!)
(And stay out! Captain Procrastination’s Note: Due to technical difficulties, the rest of the Narrator’s Note has been lost. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. Now, onto the adventures of your hero! Continue reading →
Welcome to the first of what, I’m hoping, will be a weekly feature here on 33 Grams of Blog (Although, with my schedule it might end up being closer to 10 days than 7) called Versus. This is going to be my version of The Deadliest Warrior, except it’ll be fictional characters instead of historical figures, and it won’t always be about fighting ability.
I plan on having two matchups per post, so it might go something like this: Round 1 is who would win in a fight between Batman and Captain America (I wouldn’t actually do that one, as it has already been done in comic books. I’m just using it as an example)? Round 2 might be who is a better crime solving duo: Castle and Beckett, or Sherlock Holmes and Watson?
Most of these are queries put forth by either myself, or the other comic book/movie loving nerds I work with. I’m hoping that some of you will help me out with some ideas as well. At the bottom of the page, I’m going to put a form so you can submit any ideas for matchups that you might have.
