Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #51 The Things We Bury

The @LegendsOfShield (Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) Agents Lauren, Haley and Stargate Pioneer break down the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode The The Things We Bury! They also run down the week in Marvel news, and run down all the awesome Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. feedback.


The hosts discuss Funko POP figures and what everyone has. Haley has Flash, Lauren has Winter Soldier, Rocket Racoon and Arya Stark, Nightwing has Robin and Nightwing but Stargate Pioneer doesn’t have any of them — YET.


The hosts discuss their desires again on an evil or good Fitz and the possibilities of a brainwashed Simons.


Stargate Pioneer can’t pronounce Paul Atreides which leads the foursome down a short discussion on various Dune screen versions including the original David Lynch version. And also if one should watch the David Lynch Dune or read the Comic Saga. The answer is simple:Saga always comes first!


“Black Adam” called in with his desired roster of an all-female Avenger team:

  1. Black Widow
  2. Captain Marvel
  3. Spider Woman
  4. Invisible Woman (Science)
  5. She-Hulk (Muscle)
  6. Valkyrie (Muscle)
  7. Agent Melinda May as S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison

Lauren is really liking breaking out the team in skill sets instead of replacements of the current Cinematic Universe Avengers team.


X-Men 3 continues not to exist for the hosts.


Nightwing decides to give HIS all-female Avengers team.

  1. Dagger
  2. Red She-Hulk
  3. Dazzler
  4. Big Bertha
  5. Firebird
  6. Polaris
  7. X-23


Lauren amends her list from podcast #44

  1. Black Widow
  2. Rescue
  3. She-Hulk
  4. Mockingbird
  5. Agent 13
  6. Carol Danvers


  1. Haley – Scarlet Witch

to include:

  1. Molly Hayes
  2. Nico Minoru


We all hear why Wing is wrong again because he didn’t care for Big Hero 6. So French of him. No one was surprised.


Later, Wing did mention that Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier was the best Marvel movie. Haley mentioned that was one opinion she could respect. But don’t get too excited. There are other opinions Wing has like on The incredible Hulk that Haley just wished Wing would stop drinking the cough syrup over.


Lauren tells us that Good Bye Lenin 2003 is a really good movie (That Haley hasn’t seen yet of course). And Daniel Bruhl who will be in Captain America Civil War was in Good Bye Lenin.


Lauren regales us about her amazing Marvel knowledge of Ragnarok – clone or no clone – and Eson The Searcher. And we collectively wonder exactly where Odin is right now within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


StarPi is completely deflated that he wasn’t voted sexiest man alive and Chris Hemsworth got it instead. But all the GonnaGeek women hosts including Lauren, Haley and Katherine from Legends Podcast are really fine with it.


Haley watches The Chris Pratt Guardians Of The Galaxy Dance Off Gag Reel video live on the podcast and describes the awesomeness as it happens.


We learn that Wing loves to say his H’es when he describes an actress as “hot.”


The Things We Bury Episode Discussion [41:15]


StarPi believes that Ward’s character’s arc of killing his brother and parents were known from the beginning of the series.


The best scene in the episode was definitely when all the evil characters (Ward, The Doctor, and Whitehall) are looking each other in the eye at the end to plan each other’s demise.


We (all of the hosts on Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will be calling Skye’s mom Sierra from Dollhouse until we hear her real name in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.


The scene with Skype’s Mom (Sierra) being operated on by Whitehall and then dumped in a ditch was very very dark. We don’t generally expect this level of darkness from Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D..


In a classic StarPi move he manages to confuse Edwards James Olmos with James Earl Jones in name only. And in another classic Haley move she admits to not ever having watched Hunt For Red October. Or any of the Tom Clancy movies really.


Lauren states that “Fricking Robert Redford ruins everything!”


Wing brings up a great theory about an infinity stone within Attilan and Lauren likes the idea because it would reward the Marvel fan for watching the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. television show in addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


Don’t forget that Simmons has definitely been made to “comply” by Whitehall.


Has Marvel rolled out the Inhumans 4 years too early? Haley thinks there are ways around it. And SP thinks that an Inhuman backstory before the movie would be a welcome addition to the way Marvel introduced Gamora and Nebula without any backstory at all.


Lauren brings up that is would be great if Skye’s Dad, The Doctor, is Mr. Hyde from Marvel Comics. But Haley likes Maximus The Mad better.


And don’t forget the Whitehall “origins” story that we saw in the episode. And Deputy Director May too!




Winter Soldier reported to be “central character” for Cap 3


Daniel Bruhl cast in Captain America: Civil War


Frank Grillo has multi-movie deal with Marvel


Crossbones “main villain” in Cap 3


X-men Apocalypse will be a love story between Magneto and Mystique


Slashfilm reveals Thor: Ragnarok details


Chris Hemsworth named People’s Sexiest Man Alive.


GotG gag reel: DANCE OFF


Possible contenders for Jessica Jones and Luke Cage casting

Wedneday’s Webcomic: Nimona


Just in time for Halloween, I bring you Nimona, the tale of an evil genius and his minion. Ballister Blackheart was going it alone as a supervillain until teenage Nimona showed up on his doorstep with a can-do attitude, penchant for violence, and shapeshifting powers. Blackheart’s villainy isn’t black and white however, as his own strict code of honor from his days working for the Institution for Law Enforcement and Heroics before his terrible betrayal tends to keep him from achieving the heights of villainy. Cheerfully violent Nimona has her own mysterious reasons for wanting to take the Institute down, which she sulkily avoids whenever the subject comes up. Over the course of their villainous schemes they discover the Institute is hiding something truly horrendous, and must use all of their villainous wiles to expose their foes to the unsuspecting populace.

Nimona takes place is a fascinating, Magitech medieval universe. While all the characters wear armor and joust and talk of magic, there are televisions, ray guns, and giant robots to enjoy as well! The art is in full color, with a sketchy and expressive children’s-book style of drawing. What will really astonish you is the incredibly-drawn monsters Nimona can turn into throughout the comic! While mainly a comedy, the comic cleverly holds a mirror, darkly,  up to our notions of good and evil, heroes and villains, and what it means to stand on your own moral platform rather than one given to you.

The author, Noelle Stevenson, both writes and draws this comic. Nimona updates bi-weekly, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and should be published by HarperCollins in 2015. It has been nominated for a Harvey award for Best Online Comics Work and has been awarded the Cartoonist Studio Prize for Best Webcomic of 2012 by Slate Magazine and the Center for Cartoon Studies. Stevenson is a full time writer and artist and is also known for the fanart comedic strips, the Broship of the Rings.

Wednesday’s Webcomic: Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell


Wednesday's Webcomic

I return from my break a little late this week, but I return with the fascinating, deep, and kind-hearted dramedy Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell. The comic takes place in an other world where tracking your Karma is as important in life as your credit score and your taxes. Unicorns are available as pets, your landlord might be a minotaur, and pothead angels might foist their heavenly duties off on their roommates. Darwin Carmichael is, according to his Karmic balance, one of the worst people on earth. While he tries his best to improve his balance, he has a hard time making up for a single stupid mistake made as teenager. This action haunts his every job hunt, apartment application and his romantic life. He is sometimes arrested by the Karma Police in a preemptive strike against someone so (apparently)  evil, and when he occasionally meets up with someone with psychic sensitivity they usually go into fits from fear and shock at his doom.  Since he is in actuality an average joe, he has some good friends who try to help him get into the black. His best friend and ex-girlfriend Ella tries to keep him on the path of righteousness despite her own  frequently questionable actions. She herself is incredibly karmically wealthy thanks to inheriting the karmic balance of her deceased guru parents, enough so that she could commit several murders and still be considered one of the best people on earth.  His two-millenia-old and somehow still-mentally twelve pet manticore Skittles is always there to cheer him up, or sting him with a scorpion tail if he had been accidentally locked in the closet.


Whatever you say, Darwin!

While Darwin Carmichael’s cheerful tone and brightly colored, friendly animation style give it the appearance of a light hearted romp through international traditions of faith and creatures of myth, it does have a very deep commentary on the dangers of thinking of good and evil as merely black and white, and the hypocrisy of whatever moral authority deems itself fit to judge you. It also lovingly pokes fun at the more mundane intricacies of New York hipster culture with beings like the Leprechaun of Gentrification and the actual Muses who hang with the art scene.  It was recently completed after nearly five years of weekly regular publication. The stories are a mix of funny one-shot gags and longer philosophical stories, and is as a whole a heart-warming and positive saga of friendship, moving on from your past, and being the best person you can be.
