perletwo: frog of thunder (frog of thunder)
[personal profile] perletwo posting in [community profile] scans_daily
So, if you checked out the CBR preview of this ish linked to awhile back, you know what the dragons are really up to: It's time for their eggs to hatch, and they need to swallow the eggs to carry them up into space so they can be properly born. If the Avengers get in the dragons' way, they fully intend to mow 'em down, so it's up to the Pet Avengers to hold their erstwhile comrades back.

This they do, and admirably, and once the dragons have flown unimpeded into orbit (for a beautiful wordless hatching scene, thank you Ig Guara!) Throg explains the situation. Thor is most understanding, and apologetic for his hotheadedness. He summons the Avengers off to help rebuild the world, and in another lovely power pose, Throg declares "Avengers stand together. We will help." So they board the quinjet, Mockingbird carrying Hairball most adorably, and we see a big green hand grip the rim of the volcano from within as it flies off.

And then we're into the epilogue, headed "A Week Later...Avengers Mansion." Text box adds "A new structure has been built...A new home." And we see an outbuilding with PET AVENGERS MANSION painted over the door.

Lockheed mopes at the window and explains how conflicted he felt. He joined the dragons because he didn't want to be alone, but that meant betraying the Pet Avengers, and he tearily apologizes.

How frickin' adorable is that spread? Thank you again, Ig Guara.

Something tells me we maybe haven't seen the last of that Foom character.

4 pages under the cut; warning! layout-breaky double page spread!

I will admit that I made a little squeeing sound when I saw baby Toothless there.

So something that has sort of been bothering me...why is Fin Fang Foom the only dragon that gets to wear pants?

He's as much of a dragon as Godzilla is.

He's not a dragon. He's essentially a mutant Godzilla.

I see from his wiki that FFF is actually an alien, but he seems to self-identify as a dragon here. It still doesn't answer my question of why he gets to wear pants; Godzilla never did either.

Maybe ALL the dragons are aliens but Foom is from a planet where the dragons wear pants?

That's all I got.

Well Lockheed is Flock and FFF is from Kakaranathara, and in the preview linked above they do say that the eggs need to be taken to space, so I would assume that all the dragons are aliens and probably from different places (but still able to breed together). I will accept your answer.

Another note related to pants: it appears that a huge green body and little purple shorts is a standard fashion in the MU.

I'm sure Godzilla wanted to wear pants. In his secret place.

Claremont did a thing in New Excalibur where there are native dragons on Earth, but they're solitary things and they were killed off by the alien dragons. It was a time travel story where Camelot was nearly destroyed because the dragons were acting so out of character the nights couldn't figure out how to fight them.

Well what else is he gonna shove heroes into? If he tried shoving Boom-boom into his crotch without pants she'd just fall to the ground.

Speaking of the Flock, when was the last time Lockheed spoke in rhyme?

Now I want a Lockheed/Etrigan crossover.

Barkley should have just put the coin in his pants pocket and gave those to Godzilla. Not only does it make more sense it makes a better Nike commercial.

I'm not sure how I feel about a story that ends with Barkley wearing no pants.

I thought Fin was from Maklu IV?

According to Wikipedia (where I have learned everything I know about FFF) Kakaranathara and Maklu IV are the same thing.

Little tiny dragon babies! Awwwww! (Although really, adjusting for scale, those 'tiny' babies are probably roughly the size I am, but still - awwwwwww!)

This. This was just so much adorable! Christ, I think my brain exploded from squee from that last spread alone!

Look at them! Look at them crawling all over those rocks! Awwawawwww!

Answer is probably gonna be obvious, but should I buy the rest of this series and will it be in trade?

So nice to have a happy ending!

What's the bet the 'Pet Avengers HQ' and FFFoom's 'kids' never being mentioned again in the MU?

Wonder if Thor feels a tiny bit guilty about all the dragons he's splatted over the centuries now??
