Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. #48 A Fractured House, #MarvelEvent & Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron Teaser Trailer

The @LegendsOfShield (Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D.) Agents Lauren, Haley and Stargate Pioneer are joined for a third consecutive week by special guest Counsultant Agent Wing as they break down the sixth episode of the second Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season A Fractured House! They also run down the amazing #MarvelEvent news, look deeper into the Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron teaser trailer, and run down all the awesome Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. feedback.


In this episode our hosts start off by talking about seeing Natasha Romanoff being able to pick up Thor’s “hammer,” Agent Lauren trying to “slip” it in (Wing saying Doctor Ewww…err…Doctor Who), Lauren drops some comic book knowledge about who really is capable of lifting Thor’s Hammer (Captain America, Natasha Romanoff and Wonder Woman), Haley read her first comic from 1971 in her read from the beginning of Marvel (a really mediocre Captain America as it was),  each host looks forward to their favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3/4 movie and they talk about how impossible it is to even try and compare Marvel’s film run to anything else in film history, Haley reports that she has not yet watched Top Gun or Skyfall, the hosts speculate on how Marvel will be able to do Ant Man and Inhumans, and they note that Spider-man is definitely a favorite character in everyone’s Marvel’s top 5 characters.


In the news section starting at [21:02] the hosts continue to tally their quarter bets on the China Guardians Of The Galaxy box office numbers and giggle at Ghana’s $4,800 box office number. Lauren brings up the movie with the worst box office return of all time – Zyzzyx Rd with Tom Seizemore and Katherine Heigl at $30. Just about EVERYONE is more excited for Agent Carter than Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron. Haley and Stargate Pioneer are looking forward to Captain Marvel. Lauren is intrigued by Infinity Wars. They all speculate on who exactly is it in the Hulk Buster Iron Man Suit. Lauren tells us about Seanan McQuire’s Velveteen Versus series and her Superhero Bitch Fight. Also, Lauren’s favorite character is Pixie (Megan Gwynn) and she tells us that she was a VERY violent child. Will Civil War really need Spider-man? Our answer is no but having Spider-man around would definitely be a great addition to the MCU. Thanks to we were able to see that there is only one potential crunch between all the comic book films from now to 2020 which is Captain America 3 and X-Men in May 2016.


The hosts talk about this week’s amazing Agent’s Of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode A Fractured Rose at [47:05]. We know now not to trust ANYBODY named Ward. Is Talbot a Kree or why didn’t the Splinter Bomb dematerialize him? Haley brings up Mockingbird doing a twisty flippy thing through Hydra dust. Coulson’s new coffee cup is an I Hate Monday’s Grumpy Cat cup – and Trip probably was the one who brought it into work for May. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets a Star Wars crossover with a T-Shirt. Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter’s bickering and fighting is fun to watch! And surprisingly Mockingbird stole the episode from May for Lauren and Haley. Fitz and Simmons continue to be painful to watch and we all desparately long for the days before Ward dropped them to the bottom of the ocean from an airplane. Everyone on the podcast doubts that Ward was let go in collaboration with S.H.I.E.L.D.. Haley names this episode’s fight chorography as “May versus the Spiny Knife” and “Bobbi jumping through Hydra dust.” And everyone was awed over the duel intense dialogues between Coulson and Senator Ward and Skye and “Basement Ward” (as named by Lauren). Agents Walters is definitely an Agent Red Shirt as per Haley. Lauren labels S.H.I.E.L.D. as Chaotic Good while General Talbot is Lawful Good. We all wonder who map tattoo guy is at the end. There’s all sorts of “Two Weeks” quotes including The Money Pit which Lauren has never seen and Total Recall. Lauren, Haley and Wing teach everyone how to properly steep tea, which is NOT how it’s done in the episode. And there is no good reason why Ward wasn’t sedated for transport other than “Plot Requires” for Ward to escape. And NOBODY says “peacocking” anymore. And everyone is excited for the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid-season finale.

@LegendsofSHIELD Love how @Nightwing_GG couldn’t say Doctor Who in his normal way (Docter Ew) when it was pointed out to him. ;)


Richard ?@KodiakGWC  Oct 28

The title for Thor 3, according to Wikipedia, is a bit ominous. Possible spoiler. … @LegendsofSHIELD

Alone for the fight choreography, #AgentsofSHIELD is so much more enjoyable for me, than #Gotham. @LegendsofSHIELD @GothamNightline

@LegendsofSHIELD generally pretty excited by the announcement yesterday. One or two titles I’m not dying to see (yet), but all interesting

@LegendsofSHIELD re: AoU scene. Love that Cap was able to shift the hammer, and the face when Thor noticed it. Love that they included that

Wednesday’s Webcomic: Strong Female Protagonist


I’ve been wanting to share Strong Female Protagonist for awhile now, but I wanted to wait until the current story arc was resolved since it was such a nail-biter. Strong Female Protagonist can be an incredibly emotionally intense story; best be prepared to sometimes have a powerful cry at your monitor. The comic tells the story of Allison Green, a New York City college student. She’s a pretty average girl who studies for exams, lives in a dorm, and clashes with her professors with one notable exception: she’s a former teen superhero. Super strong and completely invulnerable to harm, Allison publicly unmasked herself and denounced the superhero way of life when she realized she wasn’t really doing anything to actually save the world. She wants to draw attention to fighting poverty, disease, and war, but that’s difficult when everyone’s afraid you will squish them like a bug, old friends are nagging you to get back in the crime-fighting game, and super villains bust into your life to settle old scores. There’s also the question if some mysterious power or shadowy organization has a vested interest in preserving the status quo, and if they are quietly assassinating heroes who are trying to actually make a difference.


We have to worry about suddenly running into our exes. Alison has to worry about guys like this.

The comic is black and white with gray-scale washes for shading. The characters and art style are more cartoonish than the average mainstream comic book. The anatomical rendering is excellent, with clear actions sequences and intense facial expressions. And I do mean intense. While not a depressing comic by any means, the emotional anguish of the characters at certain points in the story really reaches into your chest and starts pumping your heart for you. The comic has updated biweekly with regularity, and three complete “chapters” have been published.

The Authors and their Other Works:

The duo behind Strong Female Protagonist are writer Brennan Lee Mulligan and artist Molly Ostertag. Mulligan is a filmmaker in addition to being a writer, with some short films available for streaming on his website. Ostertag has created some other comics in print, including a retelling of the true story of Khutulun, the Wresteler Princess, a Mongolian folk hero.

FANS OF WEDNESDAY’S WEBCOMIC: I need your help! I am running out of comics I know of to read. If you are writing or reading a webcomic that you love, please let me know about it so I can read it and maybe recommend it in the GonnaGeek’s new forum!
