"I Like The Way You Salute Soldier."

Happy Memorial Day People!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all the brave men and women, past, present, and future, that have and are, serving in the Armed Forces.

Thank you for your sacrifice, both of life and of time.

Speaking of, here's today's first skit of the week.....

The End

Yeah, I'm not super crazy about how the Toy Biz sculptors stuck that mar-Vel figure with hands like that. Shit man, fists would've been better. I guess they were tring to go with the in flight pose for the hands. If only they'd remake this one, but woth two sets of hands.......

HA! good one. ya know it's kinda funny in the Operation Galactic Storm story line back in the 90s the Kree Supreme Intelligence conspired to jump start Kree evolution with a nega bomb. it was basically a nazi style eugenics method of "improving a species". indeed Mar-vell was no nazi but the Kree empire basically was when it was at it's peak. classic fascistic society also. so were the skrulls for that matter. the Shiar Empire is a bit diiferent they allow their subject planest to participate in the political process.

Very true Shlomo. Not to mention the Kree doctor Ms. Minerva and the Captain Atlas were supposed the cream of the Kree genetic crop, and thus were supposed to make more perfect, ideal, Kree babies. Except that Captain Atlas was disgusted by the SI's plans and role in the whole thing and said fuck that and blew him and her up.

I'm sure there was maybe an underlying message there, but as a kid at the time I didn't really see it. Now though, whooof, man that whole Operation: Galactic Storm thing was just a complicated attempt to jumpstart the Kree race going forward? Fucking cold as ice man. I know Kurt Busiek briefly revisted that storyline wiht the Live Kree or Die storyline in the latr 90's, but I never read it. Very fucked up all the way around. I wonder then,in the reality where Grant Morrison's Marvel Boy, did the SI there do somethibng similar for No-Vaar to have all those extra abilities like he did?

yeah i've got all the Marvel titles that follow the OGS story line so i know what you're talking about with Atlas and Minerva. i also have some Captain America and Avengers issues with the Live Kree or Die story line more good shit. it basically has to do with this surviving Kree general and his crew who have this ongoing plan to take revenge on The Avengers. i always heap praise on the 80s but the 90s had some good shit to. these days however i don't know shit about what's going on in comics.
