I will never say that Michael Turner drew anatomically correct people, or that he drew realistic looking women, or anything else like that. But damn the guy could draw beef/cheesecake like nobody’s business…
rpgwizzard said: Pym particles have changed then. Are there any other size manipulators in the MU (not the Cinematic), anymore beside the Pym/Lang family. I recall some vague references to Scott’s daughter being called Stature or some such.
Several, though most got their powers from Pym. Janet van Dyne (Wasp) can of course shrink, but also gained (in the 2000s) the ability to grow. And Pym’s research assistant, William “Bill” Foster, aka Goliath, and Foster’s nephew Thomas, who also took the name Goliath. There’s the other Ant-Man, Scott Lang and Eric O’Grady, and Rita DeMara, aka Yellowjacket. Cassie Lang, Scott’s daughter, has also used Pym Particles to shrink and grow, as Stature. And Erik Josten, the villain-turned-hero once known as Power Man and now known as Atlas.
Clint Barton has used Pym Particles in the past, both on himself (as Goliath) and in trick arrows, and Frank Castle’s used them for smuggling and infiltration. Katerina van Horn (Man-Killer) has used Pym Particle to grow to about 25 feet tall, as Amazon. There was also The Big House, sometimes referred to as “The Ant Farm” and later renamed The Lang Memorial Penitentiary, which used Pym Particles to shrink supervillains down to the size of action figures.
And for some reason Reed Richards has stated he knows more about Pym Particles than Henry Pym. Because Pym can never have anything.
Interestingly, in the Ultimate Marvel Universe, Pym’s Particles were derived from his study of Janet van Dyne, who in that reality was a Mutant with the power to shrink to the size of an insect.
Completely apropos of nothing, the only thing I remember about Ultimate Janet van Dyne, aside from getting eaten by the Blob,
was when Ultimate Captain America asked for her help to distract the Hulk, she flashed him. To wit Captain America said, “When I asked you to distract him, I didn’t think you’d give him the Mardi Gras Special…”
Which always struck me as an incredibly funny line.
Okay, so apparently it was Samuel L. Jack… errr… Ultimate Nick Fury who said the line… But my point stands. It’s a funny scene.
Do the people at ABC know that tumblr is literally the only place Skyeward shippers exist? I’ve yet to see people who are at all interested in them anywhere else, and I look around.
That’s including the actors themselves… Chloe is rather vocal about Skimmons… Don’t know about Brett, but he’s evil so screw him.
This is something I haven’t felt in a very long time.
I am so angry about all these external things, and I’m not redirecting it inward. I have apoplectic levels of rage about a couple certain things that I’m pretty certain I could gleefully slaughter the douche nozzles involved, but none of it is aimed at myself.
Anonymous asked: I don't know if you've done this, and I don't really ship Laurel/Dick, but... Sarah should totally call Laurel as she's driving over to Dick's apartment and at some point say, "So you're off to get your daily dose of the D...." See, it's funny, because it's slang for Dick, and Dick is his name... Yeah, this is going anon....
I’ve been seriously debating how to work that joke into any of what i’ve written, hopefully with Sara because I like the idea that she and Dick might have a slightly antagonistic but still friendly relationship.
Even if you don’t ship it, it’s super cool of you to come suggest this so thank you :)
It would have to be either Sara or Thea to make the joke.
Roy, Diggle, and Felicity are out; Laurel doesn’t have enough interaction with them to justify a racy joke like that.
Moira or Harry Dresden… err… Detective Lance would just be too creepy for words.
Oliver? There’s no way that would work, not with their history.
So that leaves Sara and Thea… Sara would be the most light-hearted. Just two sisters checking in on each other, making sure they’re okay, and some teasing. Thea, in my mind, would be a bit more heartbreaking because I can see her calling Laurel to talk about Tommy, about how she had another brother that no one ever told her about, and how she had a crush on him and everything and now he’s dead too and feelings feelings feelings angst angst angst sniffle sniffle weak joke to break the heavy mood.
Or you could take it in a completely creeptastic and horrendously evil direction, and have Slade be the one to use that joke…
If it were up to me, I’d use Slade… but that’s because I’m a bad bad bad man…
