I love how unimpressed Gwen is with Arcade.

I feel bad for Arcade. He goes to all the effort of constructing this elaborate deathtrap and they just suck all the fun out of it.

He could make a lot of money if mercs and heroes had to pay him to get in. I mean not every team can afford a freaking danger room. If I had a team I would pay for tickets to murder world once a month for training and such.

They already did that once actually. Taskmaster pays to train in his Murderworlds.

I would feel bad for him, but then again Avengers Arena was a thing, so fuck em.

(BTW, didn't Hazmat kill his dumbass for that in the sequel to that mini? Not that I'm surprised he's back already, but any explanation as to why he's not dead anymore?)

Avengers Undercover revealed that he hadn't actually died and it was all part of some master plan to screw over Zemo

No, Zemo was the one that had arcade in a dungeon.

Yeah but then Arcade helped sabotage Zemo's helicarrier and came in singing "All I do is win"

Right, but then he was left behind and Zemo tied him to the bumper of his Helicarrier. That was the last time we saw him before this.

Not counting his appearance in Ghost Racers anyway.

No, he was alive by the end of that, though Zemo had him in a prison cell.

He is presumed dead, as seen in this week's Usavengers though.

Marvel rebooted the multiverse & now people who were dead are alive again because Franklin "GOD" Richards is making a bunch of alternate universes.

From: [personal profile] thehood
Except that's not what happened and it wasn't a reboot.
From: [personal profile] 7dialsmystery
It was supposed to be a reboot. They were destroying the old multiverse and replacing it with an "all -new" one.
malitia: (Default)
From: [personal profile] malitia
No, it wasn't. It had marketing that could be read that way if you squinted, but given how many new series they started even only months before it it was fairly obvious that their "all-new" universe will look suspiciously like the old.
From: [personal profile] 7dialsmystery
I was deceived by the fact they named the event 'Last Days' and actually stuck a 'goodbye' note at the end thanking the creators 'stan lee & kirby' for creating it.
malitia: (Default)
From: [personal profile] malitia
At first me too. I mean when they announced the event I almost got a heart attack.

But then I looked at the release schedule and some books I read: So Groot (which at that point was marketed as an ongoing) will only be 2 issues in when this starts? Angela: Asgard's Assassin just ended with a clear sequel hook? (Random examples, that stood out to me by virtue of how extreme they were. I can probably list more.) O.o

OK. No way that they will do the full on reboot they're implying, it's just to generate hype. :/ Could someone please kick them? HARD!

Arcade was already alive last I saw him. Not *happy*, but certainly alive at the finale of Avengers Underground.

This is really, really good. I'm honestly surprised I have barely heard a whisper about this series, I would have expected it to quickly grow a vocal fan following.

Going by all the cosplay and fanart i've seen, she clearly already does.

Have you actually looked it up?

janegray: (Default)
From: [personal profile] janegray
I haven't actively gone out of my way to look it up. But I mean, on Tumblr and Twitter and other places like that, you can't throw a rock without hitting a couple dozen posts and communities about a whole bunch of comics (for example, the scans where Wonder Woman meets the black girl who shoots flowers were trending for days; even Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur were posted a bunch of times), but I never see anything about Gwenpool unless I specifically go look for it. Scans_Daily is the only place where I've seen people talk about Gwenpool without having to go out of my way to look for it, and even then IIRC this is just the fourth post in almost a year.

It's not that it's unpopular. It's that I would expect people to talk about it more.

That's not the case for me, i've see post of Gwenpool in both. In fact, i've seen a lot of Gwenpool cosplays on tumblr.

Hey! Why is Arcade alive? And why hasn't he been kneecapped yet?

Because he was already thought to be dead. Who's going to hunt down a dead guy?

People who want to make sure and/or sell his skull on EBay, that's who.

Last those who think he's dead knows, he's not only blasted, but *radioactively* blasted. You don't want his skull on your mantleplace.

This looks like it ought to be good. But it feels a bit flat to me. Needs a Gail Simone.

This book continually makes me laugh and smile each month. I'd originally dismissed the concept during her back-up appearances in Howard the Duck, but cast as the lead, Gwen works rather well.

Her genre-saviness in figuring out "Yeah, this is Arcade." is perfect.
