CAPTAIN AMERICA’S TO-DO LIST
Here’s a screenshot from Captain America: The Winter Soldier showing Cap’s to-do list. Poor dude. Frozen for nearly 70 years, there’s a lot he has to catch up on like Thai food, educating himself on the ups and downs of the Berlin wall, and apparently he’s unsure about Rocky II.  At least he got Star Wars out of the way.
Sheesh, Steve! You should put buy a smartphone on that list because there’s totally an app for keeping track of all that stuff. Christ, you could knock that list out in a few days ON a smartphone!

Loki Will Be Bisexual In Upcoming Marvel Title
Regarding the upcoming Marvel comic Loki: Agent of Asgard, writer Al Ewing posted on his blog “Yes, Loki is bi and I’ll be touching on that. He’ll shift between genders occasionally as well.”
It pretty much makes sense since the Loki of Norse mythology was a shapeshifting slut who got it on with anyone and anything.
If you listen closely enough, you can hear the sound of millions of undersexed fangirls, fanboys and slash fiction writers squealing with delight. Al Ewing must be completely aware of Tumblr’s Loki tag. I wonder if he’s aware of these pervy Loki mousepads.

An Infinite Punch to My Wallet: Thoughts on ‘Infinity’ #1
Outside of Guardians of the Galaxy and Hawkeye, I haven’t subscribed to a Marvel comic book, ever. Now, I’ve read plenty and I’m a big collector of old backissues, but most Marvel comics don’t appeal much to me. The vast universe of Marvel characters and heroes are just too expansive, and it’s too much cash to maintain watching my favorite heroes duke it out with my favorite villains on a regular basis, especially if those battles are insignificant and just filler for major stuff, so I consistently pay attention to huge crossovers and events that actually effect continuity.
So here comes Infinity, Mavel's big huge crossover event that's been hyped since February saw Free Comic Book Day. The massive crossover is supposed to involve the entire Marvel universe and revolves around one of my favorite Marvel characters, Thanos, and his attack on Earth.
Infinity finally debuted yesterday and I visited my local comic book shop to spend $4.99 on this lengthy(ish) comic. While I found it entertaining, here’s some thoughts on the comic as a whole:
[[MORE]]
Thoughts.
$4.99 for the issues of the six-issue mini-series. $30, but not including the New Avengers/Avengers tie-ins. The Infinity checklist in the back of the first issue says the main story will tie-in with six issues of the Avengers and three from New Avengers. That’s $80+ of following this story, overall. As much as I’d like to, I just can’t do that.
There’s also 15+ other titles this mini-series will (or should fully) tie-in with, such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, Nova, and Fearless Defenders. Again, as much as I’d like to, fuck no, that’s too much money.
The first issue’s story by Hickman was terrific. Over the span of 48-pages, the story unfolded two separate point of views: those Avengers who will fight The Builders, and the side from Thanos' minions and their diabolical plans to invade Earth.
I don’t know who The Builders are.
I don’t understand what the Illuminati were doing in the beginning of the comic book, but it’s pretty clear I should have been reading the prologue story-arcs that premiered beforehand. Upsetting I have to look this up…
If this affects the entire Marvel universe and Earth as a whole, why are there a handful of X-Men and other heroes featured in this single issue if the event really only revolves around the Avengers?
Why the fuck is Hawkeye involved with such a grand plot and what is he going to do against a galactic threat when he’s currently too busy kicking Russian mafia ass in his own solo title?
I don’t know who the Spaceknights are, but their role in this story didn’t throw me off.
I really loved seeing the Inhumans and Black Bolt being a huge part of this plot unfolding.
On the opposite end, when the Inhumans weren’t featured, the Avengers were, and they were really only shown being confused as to what was happening a majority of the comic.
The Outrider and most of Thanos' dark minions were enjoyable to read and see presented.
I don’t know who Captain Universe is.
What is Captain America going to do in space that Iron Man can’t do better? Why would you send Captain America into space to fight a galactic threat?
I don’t know who Ex Nihilo is.
Jim Cheung drawing Thanos smiling is creepy, dark, and absolutely sent chills down my spine in excitement for the next issue.
I don’t know who Smasher is.
Cheung designing the alien creatures and otherworldly beings also were top-notch.
 I really hope I know what’s going on by issue #2.
The first issue needs to set up a LOT of opportunities for many other backstories involving other characters, but it needs to be more concise as a main series. The main series teased enough for me to become excited, but I don’t think I’d ever want to follow the other tie-ins. As a kick-off to a major event involving multiple characters, titles, and perhaps continuity Infinity #1 has a lot of its plate. It introduced a setup, though I’m not quite sure the direction it’s headed in currently. Surely though, this should all make more sense by the next issue…right?
Shouts to Reddit user julia-sets for this awesome post to get me up to speed for Infinity and pretty much reminding me how dumb I am for trying to get into this crossover event without reading Avengers first.

This ‘Avengers’ Playroom Concept Is Glorious

Although this concept room by [Q]ATRO Design meant as a room for kids, I’m sure a good deal of adults wouldn’t mind having a room like this in their home. All it needs it a decent couch, a mini fridge, some consoles, and possibly even Scarlet Johansson in her Black Widow outfit and I’d never, ever leave.

Daredevil Film Rights Back with Marvel Studios
Great news for fans of Marvel Studios and their Cinematic Universe. Daredevil, of which Fox had the rights for, is now back in the hands of Marvel Studios, meaning that we could see Daredevil enter the Cinematic Universe.
The news, confirmed by Kevin Feige at the Iron Man 3 press event, is great news. Back in 1990, before Marvel Studios was an active production company, they sold off the rights to multiple projects which included X-Men, Spiderman and Daredevil. This explains the reboots of X-Men and Spiderman so soon. If Fox and Sony don’t actively produce films based on those IPs, the rights revert back to Marvel. This was the case with Daredevil.
The hope is for Marvel to acquire all of the film rights back to their franchises. Through doing so, they could introduce the regular Avengers team members like Wolverine and Spider-man. The best part? A possible Civil War film.
This is the first step in getting some of those IPs back. My guess? They get the Fantastic 4 and Blade franchises back next.
As for what to do with Daredevil? If it were up to me, I would have kept this a secret and then debuted him on the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show. That would have got people talking.
