A webcomic done by Gurihiru, a Japanese artist team best known for their work on POWER PACK, it's a very irreverent take on the Marvel Universe, if the characters all lived in the same apartment building.

This installment is very similar to the previous one, but with Deadpool swapped out for Iceman.

Translation notes and short bios for new characters at my blog.

'No more Mr Ice Guy' is the best joke in this set. (Although 'owe me a solid' is good, too.)

Although I've now got Alice Cooper music stuck in my head.

Marvel should ask Guihiru to publish this as back-up strips on the MA titles!
I'll never get tired of Moustache!Iron Man's suit.

Oh, I know. We can only hope...
But really, the name puns add a layer of chessy awesomeness that I really enjoy! XD

How can DD play mahjong? There's a "feel" aspect to the game that I know of, but how can he know he's not being cheated?

And yup, even in parody universe Woolbie > Scottie.

Those are Kana. The Kana are two phonetic alphabets that you learn in the first two weeks of Japanese 1. It's a pretty awesome writing system and it's a crying shame that they decided to overlay Kanji on top of most of it. The two Kana are Hiragana and Katakana - Hiragana is the normal kind that is interleaved with Kanji in normal writing. Katakana is more angular and used like bold face, or to write loanwords.

The two Kana in that particular image are Hiragana; the first is "Ka" the second is "Ji."

D'oh. I know of the two systems, but I always forget which is which.

OK, the 'he's a loser! It's funny!' shtick with Scott is starting to get a bit old. The one with Iron Man and the fish pond was pretty funny, though.

He's pretty funny, all right - he's like a refugee from the Land of the Rich. 'You mean floors DON'T come pre-equipped with Persian carpets? Fascinating!'
