Looks very familiar, just can't place the name

S'up people.

A good bit under the weather, so nothing all that riveting today. But I did figure I'd leave you guys with this:

Reminds you of someone you know huh? ;)

Roast The Whirlwind

To be fair, Whirlwind's creators really didn't do him any favors dressing him up as an angry, spiky, tampon dispenser.

Just saying.....

So, Who Would Win?: Nick Fury VS. Cobra Commander


For this week's edition of So, Who Would Win?, I'm taking a page out of an old issue of Wizard magazine and setting up this fantasy fight between Nick Fury and Cobra Commander.

Y'up, good ol' classic Nick Fury and the leader of the ruthless, terrorist organization bent on world domination Cobra, Cobra Commander.

About more than 10 years ago, Wizard magazine and artist Derrick Robertson (New Warriors, Transmetropolitan, The Boys) themselves set up this particular scenario, with Nick storming Cobra headquarters, working and killing his way to meeting up with the main boss, Cobra Commander.

In my scenario, he does the same here too, working his way up to one-on-one confrontation with the head snake, Cobra Commander. Except he's got more obstacles to face, namely Destro and the Baroness. The preceding firefight, wounds Fury quite a bit, but not enough to put him down for the count. Storm Shadow let him pass earlier....for reasons unknown, other than being passive aggressive in seeing CC meet his intended fate.  Major Blood, with a mixed assortment of guardsmen and Cobra foot soldiers, make a last-ditch effort to protect CC at all costs. Finally after what seems like an eternity of trading gunfire, the remaining Cobra personal all close in on a very fatally wounded Fury.

Major Blood mocks Fury.

"An' so this is the legendary Nick Fury eh? I expected him to put up more a fight than this. Guess you never really should met your hero, 'cause they'll disappoint you every time, isn't that right Nicky ol' son?"

Than Cobra Commander starts in on Fury.
 "Pathetic Fury, truly pathetic. You didn't really think you'd just walk in here and take me out did you? Surely your experience with fighting those miserable pretenders, Hydra, would've taught you that. Any last words before I do what so many have longed to do for ages, and dispose of you?"

Fury just starts to laugh.
"Nope, but you  and your goons just uttered your last!"

And with that the whole building complex blows the fuck up, taking everyone and everything with it.
After a couple of minutes, a long figure drops down from a huge, and very familiar large floating facility. It's the SHIELD helicarrier, and the long figure is Nick Fury.

You see kids, in my scenario, Fury played them all, blowing up one of many Nick Fury LMD's. And that's just what happened to Cobra Commander and his "goons."

Fury here's something. Digs and sifts through some burnt rubble, revealing a barely breathing Cobra Commander.

CC: "H-h-h-how?"

Fury: "LMD's, Life-Model Decoys. Never leave home without 'em."

End scene.

Who Wins and Why?

I know, I know, it's criminally obvious who would win, so tell me how you think Nick does it.
I look forward to seeing what scenarios you guys dream up.

Roast Me: The Red Skull

Haven't done this in awhile, but since it's so damn hot out, I think it's time  someone else feels the heat too, don't you think?

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy;)

DC's Version of The Defenders

Happy Taco Tuesday!!!!

Thought I had a skit done in time for yesterday's post, but clicking on my blog, nothing.

While I work on this week's skit, here's a fun idea to mull over.

After sparking some ideas, I started thinking about what DC versions of established marvel teams would look like and vice-versa.

Today, I'm humbly presenting what I'd imagine the DCU version of The Defenders would look like:

1). John Constantine - Dr. Strange

This one really needs no explanation, as Constantine can and would clearly be the DCU counterpart to Dr. Strange.

2).  Swamp Thing - Silver Surfer (Alt. The Hulk)

I think John would personally recruit Swampy, since he trusts him, and he fits nicely as the earthly avatar counterpart to the more cosmic Silver Surfer. He could also serve as the counterpart to the Hulk as well, but I think he fits the Surfer's role better.

3). The Demon - The Hulk (Alt. The Beast/Gargoyle)

It doesn't get more duelistic than the Demon, when going for battling alter-egos, and thus The Demon and  Jason Blood perfectly fit the Hulk's role on the team.

4). Zatanna (Alt. I, Vampire) -  Namor

Zatanna should be an automatic in, and yet with her powers she'd be slightly redundant.  She could still take Namor's role as royal heir ,especially to a family and race of magic creatures like Zatanna is, so there is that. If not, Maybe Andrew Bennett, a.k.a. I, Vampire could fit the role instead.

5). Deadman - Hellcat

Deadman would be an automatic in for me on the team, so I guess the only role that would suit him, would probably be Hellcat's role. Plus their both athletic and deal with magic, so......

6). Black Orchid - Valkyrie 

I figure the Black Orchid could fit the role of the strong woman on the team, much like Valkyrie does, so that take cares of that.

7). Animal Man (Alt. Robotman/B'wana Beast/Shade The Changing Man)

This one might be a bit of a stretch, but I'm including Animal Man on the team. He fits the role of as a somewhat mainstream superhero, yet weird enough to justify hanging with this team of misfits. He'd basically have Nighthawk's role on the team, but without being the money to fund the group. Other suggestions would be Robotman from the Doom Patrol, B'Wana Beast, and/or Shade the Changing Man.

Associates/Other Members:

 -Phantom Stranger

-I, Vampire

-Frankenstein's Monster

So that's my take, and yes I know, a team like that already exists, and they're called the Justice League Dark, but hey, it's not my fault they have a similar line-up.

So, what would yours be if you planned on creating your own Defenders team with DC characters?

"Closing time. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here."

Well..... I kinda always knew this day would come, and it sure has. It's been a hell of a ride, but it's time to for it end. Ti...
