Teasing us with such a nice toy

Mark Brooks is the artist who produced this lovely trompe d'oeil cover

(Actually, fear not, a Mirage figure will be available soon in the Marvel Legends line!)

Reminds me of another couple of examples of this style of cover;

and, well, this one, sort of! ;)

Fearless Defenders is looking so good, frankly. I just hope there's a good home for Songbird there, given a character like her just doesn't deserve to be unceremoniously dumped with everything switching over. But it's got a great line-up so far, I like that they're cherry picking from various spots across the MU.

And that Batman Adventures is so good, too. It's just spot on in terms of how the toy packaging used to look, and even the depictions of the action figures look just like the old BTAS Batman I used to have.

Yeah, it actually looks just like he has the little half-circle of tough plastic the toys used to have attaching the cape to the neck, so you could clip and unclip the cape. The accuracy is awesome.

...why does that bow have a silencer?

Kinda figured it too. ;) Looks ineffective, though. The end which you look into really should be larger.

It's possible, but a lot of modern bows have that kind of thing--helps to balance the bow in general, something to that effect. I was into archery for a while and was fair enough at it, but it's been a while since I last shot.

But we can take the "That's no way to hold a bow properly" as being a given? I don't even know anything about archery and seeing the bowstring up between her armpit and her breast makes me think that's going to hurt when she releases.

Yeah, that's a stabilizer. Basically a heavy tube, sometimes full of mercury or something, what it does is it keeps the bow from moving so much between when you release the string and the arrow departs the bow.

Oh, so I was more or less right? Good. I like being right. :D

Hey, so speaking of Misty, since when are she and Iron Fist not together? I just read an issue of... something, I can't remember, where she ended up making out with Paladin. What happened?

It was a gradual thing. I don't they ever showed them actually breaking up.

Misty got pregnant in Immortal Iron Fist and Danny proposed to her, but it turned out to be a false pregnancy, so Misty fell into a funk and Danny moved out to give her space. They still kept on a relationship after that, I think, but during Shadowlands they just started being with other people.

Clearly Misty should be with Colleen and have many little KnightWing babies.

On that Robin packaging - "small parts". Ouch, Joker, that was a bit below the belt.

I wonder if being the new Shield Maidens that Valkyrie is recruiting means that all the members will get some sort of permanent power up. Dani's Valkyrie powers randomly turning on and off was pretty annoying. It's a shame that AVX didn't end with some repowerings.

I'll just wait for the one with the goofily noncanonical gimmick.

Thank god their poses aren't excessively oversexualized. It saddens me that that's the first thing I noticed.
