Jimmy Woo and the other Agents of Atlas, while clearly a group of "good guys" (at least to us readers!), have occasionally used the fact that the Atlas Foundation was formerly an evil empire to their advantage.

Below, in two full pages and one panel from the eight-page Agents of Atlas story "The Heist" in Dark Reign: New Nation, they break into Fort Knox (very publicly) and make off with a large amount of solid gold bullion. Their aim is to figure out who was behind a plan to buy weapons without the inconvenience of getting Congress approval first.

Jimmy Woo's 3-Step Plan to Break into a Heavily Guarded Facility While Posing as a Villain )

Of course, they've also been on the receiving end - particularly at the hands of Jimmy's once-girlfriend and current (during the particular story arc) nemesis, Suwan a.k.a the Jade Claw. She is the head of Great Wall, an offshoot and rival of Jimmy's Atlas Foundation. After commandeering Atlas' communications channels (twice) and causing the saucer heavy damage in a firefight, she decides to enjoy herself a little - on a personal level - during another fight.

'Truly this is Shangri-La for me. To feel sensual pleasure while my forces overcome my purest bliss.' )

So there they are: the Agents as heroes both playing *at* being villains and being played *by* villains. I love their versatility and I miss them.

Yeah, I know that she has her faults, but when Rumiko Takahashi is on top of her game, she can put out some lovely art and extremely funny stories. And since it's come up during my cleaning efforts, let's look at her introduction of Nodoka Saotome.

This is from the Viz edition; back in 1992 they still printed manga in floppies, and flipped so they read left to right. (Though they'd eased up a bit on "no Japanese words we can possibly avoid.") "Ranma 1/2" Volume Ten, #7, 10 pages of 31.

I love love love pre-megalomadman, Superbuddies-era Max Lord and Sue Dibny together. Let me show you why!

I'd expect this sort of thing from your husband, but not from you! )

So there you have it, my never-gonna-happen fantasy OTP. Then DC hadda go ruin everything by making Max all Evil!Psycho!Villain!, and we won't even discuss what they did to Sue *shudder* But ah well, we'll always have Superbuddies!

Greetings True Believers!

My favorite canonical romance? There can no other. Bill, Born of Bills/Kelda Stormrider. The OTPness of this couple leaps from the page and strikes with woobiness and awesome-sauce.

Here is their first meeting and I've included links to my other Bill/Kelda posts.

Let the skalds sing of their love forever! Let the the metal bands compose epic seven minute ballads about them!

Okay. I seriously love these two. Maybe because their unconditional love is incredibly sweet, and it's nice to have a comics relationship that isn't "angst angst omg" all the time. Or maybe because they're just so dang adorable.

Probably the second one )

 Holy moley, this is late because I almost forgot.  

So anyway. I had to think about this one for a bit, but I'm going to go with... Dick and Babs.

Just about everyone's choosing the Timmverse/DCAU, which is hardly surprising given it's seriously high quality stuff. So I guess it falls to me to broaden everyone's horizons.

So my choice?

now you're thinking with portals! )

What costume encapsulates how comic fans feel about the 90s? Well for me it's something that can only be solved with a 3-way dance! Tonight in this very ring three awfully dressed super-heroes will face off in a no-holds barred triple threat match to the death!

Warning: Seeing these costumes may cause your eyes to bleed )
