Greetings True Believers! I bring you two scans from The Mighty Avengers #29. Well, we've seen some creepy moments from Hank Pym and Jocasta but this may take the cake. That and Jarvis almost loses his shit below the cut. Enjoy!










LOL at Jarvis! He's an Alpha-Butler and even he can't contain the WTFness. And he's a British butler for Odin's sake! He's been trained since boyhood to walk past the most mind-boggling "Eyes Wide Shut" shit will little more than a "Very good, Sir."

Hey mods, can we start tagging posts yet?

I almost bought this issue. Almost. Then while I was peeking through the pages, I read these two and chucked it practically the length of the aisle. Dear Writers: please stop piling on the creepy with these two. Please? 'Cause I'm already with Jarvis on the ew-factor.

Pym's a wife beater, creepy neckbearded scientist who fucks a robot, who lives in his basement, all he needs now is a WOW account and piles of Mountain Dew bottles and Cheeto bags to just complete the image.

"And he's a British butler for Odin's sake! He's been trained since boyhood…"

Avengers #54 (original series) explained that Edwin Jarvis was actually a poor kid from Brooklyn. It's subsequently been stated that he left home to join the Canadian Royal Air Force and ended up in Britain. Presumably the idea there was to rationalize why some writers erroneously give him a "British" dialect…but the real reason is that lazy-ass writers who can't be bothered keep confusing him with Alfred!

Aaron Stack's gonna bee-otch slap Hank Pym to another Microverse for banging his girlfriend. And I will buy five issues of that comic when it's published.

ROBOTMAN (after sixteenth beer): That Jocasta chick was eff eye inn ee fine, totally tapped that, but damn if she didn't have too many issues with her grandfather. That's major-league screwed up, there. I could understand it if it was with her father, that's Ultron, gotta respect Ultron, he's the robot equivalent of David Bowie, except, you know, completely evil, not just aging British rocker evil. And it's still in the same species, not that robots have specieses, but you know. Jocasta having a weird hang-up on Ultron, that would at least be understandable, 'cause they're both robot. Sure, Ultron built Joey, built her to be his bride, but she's not fixated on Ultron, she's stuck on Hank Pym. The guy who made the guy who made her. And . . . he's human! I don't have a problem with meatbags, always good for a laugh, meatbags, but that's several kinds of crazy there. She's a robot . . . with a thing for a human . . . and not just any human, but the guy who made the guy who made her! I don't even want to open the can of expired lubricant that is. That. That is. That. Is that. That is that. Bitches, man. Can't believe 'em sometimes. I'm better off without her. I miss her so much.

err... I kind of like it?

Yes, it's creepy. But they keep POINTING OUT how creepy it is. Which makes me think they're going to do something with it and aren't just creeping us out for the hell of it.

And didn't Vision have Simon's dead brain påatterns too or something?

What? What are påatterns? I don't even have a keyboard that can do that.

Yeah, Vision had Simon's brain patterns, but they never really had similar personalities. And Si and Vis worked that out, kinda. But Vis wasn't Si's ex's grandson.

this anti-Pym/Jocasta sentiment is the exact same kind of thinking that messed up Wanda so much

From: [identity profile] felinephoenix.insanejournal.com
Are you serious? Wanda/Vision isn't even comparable to this. Yeah, some people are squicked by Hank dating a robot, but I think most of them are squick because Jocasta's kind of Pym's granddaughter robot. Not to mention all the weirdness with her maybe-maybe not containing a bit of Jan inside her.

So, in an attempt to make Hank Pym more interesting, they kill Janet, have Hank assume her hero name, and start banging a robot that with her brainpatterns.

At first, Jean and Jan's deaths, Wanda's psychosis, and the Spider-marriage retcon lead me to believe Marvel editorial was misogynistic. Now I'm not sure what to call it.

I'd go with "off their meds", but that's an insult to actual medical problems. Can't really blame it on fumes either (though trias will fuck you up something good if you forget you're working in a badly ventilated room), since 95% of coloring is computer these days. Something injected in the food, maybe?

OK, now that I'm done shuddering over the shippy creeptasticness, two questions.

1) What exactly is Hank hoping to learn/accomplish by going macro?

2) Why are there birds in Hank's lab? why do birds...suddenly appear...every time...you are neeear?

I am not as bothered by this. Perhaps because I like Jocasta's line about it being more like being with her god rather than her father.

Given he has grow to giant size using his own powers for years, and larger than he appears to hit here, when did growing large enough to pierce the "Macroverse" come into play.

And isn't OUR universe the Macroverse (as opposed to the Microverse), which would make where he's going what.. the Megaverse?

I don't see the big deal. It's not like he and Jo are biological (or even legal for that matter) family.

Plus it's not like he even originally recognized/recognizes Ultron as his son. And yes I know Pym responds when Ultron calls him "Dad", but your fighting him anyway, why not go along with it?

The book is irresistible to me. The pycolocial train wreck from Pym and the other character is going to truly be grand.
