Okay, so, Marvel just did a back-dated story - Iron Man 258.1 through 258.4 - which fills in some of the time post-Armor Wars; basically it's an Iron Man story that fits in about 1990 in continuity but doesn't involve time travel or anything. Which makes the decision they made about the storyline make NO SENSE. And also makes that decision infuriating.

Iron Man 258.1-258.4 spoilers plus some discussion of plots from, like, 1994. Also, large images. )

So, okay, this post is about the ways in which people are having a conversation about Pepper Potts in Iron Man 3, and how she is going to [spoiler]. I'm also going to talk about some comics in which she does [spoiler], and also the comics in which she does a similar but different [spoiler], but I can't list which ones here because they'd reveal [spoiler]. This post is full of conflicted feels; if you're looking for a squeeful post, this isn't it.

Dear Festividder,

Hi! I am really excited about festivids, and I'm thrilled that you're making a vid in one of these tiny (or at least small) fandoms that we share! First and foremost, I want you to have fun and do festivids however you want to do it, and if that means totally ignoring this that is fine by me. If you want more information about me or what I like about the sources or music suggestions, read on, but don't take any of this letter as a strict guideline - I like all kinds of vids (including critiques) and I like surprises and I like these sources, so you're pretty sure to make something I'll like.

I'm fine with any rating - one of my requests is for a porn source, and a vid for that could be as porny as you want. And I'm fine with almost any content; the only exceptions are that I'm phobic about needles and sometimes bothered by lingering shots of needles in flesh and that I really hate celluloid closeting and dead queer people narratives (not that you're likely to hit those with these sources).

About music )

My requests: Pumzi, Sleep Dealer, Whale Rider, RuPaul's Drag Race, Black Panther (tv series), Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and the Crash Pad series )

So I'm not saying that anybody should, like, go and read the current run of the Invincible Iron Man (written by Matt Fraction, art by Salvador Larroca) or anything, especially since most of it makes me eyeroll all over the place. I'm just saying: wow, Matt Fraction/Marvel, your kinks are showing.

panels from #503 and #520 and #521; includes noncon and begging-a-bad-guy tropes and tentacles and mind control and torture and being a prisoner and omg how is marvel so racist villains and ableist terms and large images (transcribed) and spoilers )

... because we started watching it on Netflix while [personal profile] chagrined was here, and have kept watching it because it is lolz. It's right in that space of fluctuating nostalgia-sincerity-lolz-irony that some shows manage to hit - we laugh at it and we sing along and we predict the plot twists ([personal profile] thingswithwings likes to do Thor's dialogue a beat before he does, because he is very predictable) and we say "oh, that's not a bad idea at all" and we nostalgically go "awww, look, Ultron!" and we mock Tony Stark (not a hard task) and we hash out Ant Man's backstory ("no, seriously, Pym particles and biochemical wings. He does science!") and we pause the show and complain whenever Hawkeye appears to fly and we agree that Black Panther could totally take on the rest of the Avengers no problem (except maybe the Hulk) and we cheer on Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD, and we roll around in the canon and basically have a good time.

So really, the credits sequence kind of encapsulates my whole Avengers: EMH nostalgia/lolz experience so far, so I thought I would embed it here. As you watch, imagine that you're sitting in a room with total dorks (us!) who are singing along in srs bzns rock music voices. Possibly one or more of us is headbanging, because why not.

So that is kind of the Avengers right there! Lolz/nostalgia/sincerity/irony/more lolz. But I do have more to say than that, so here are some more spoilery things about the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes from about halfway through season one )

The thing is, I'm actually not very interested in the movieverse canon, or in Tony/Steve, which is the big pairing, so mostly I just plan to watch the show and do lolz and nostalgia at the moment.
