  1. Oh yeah, Trenchcoat: Will Murray created Squirrel Girl. Yeah Yeah, Steve Ditko was the first to illustrate her thus getting "co-creator" status by default, but SG was conceived by Murray. I bet she would have looked exactly the same had she been drawn by someone else in her first appearance.

  2. Let's see what Trenchcoat thinks of this! Here is the Edgar Wright Ant Man footgage as created by an artist who was present. I see a lot of potential for domestic vilence in this animation.

    Didn't Tim hate Irredemable Iron Man? What did you think of him, Trenchcoat?

    I hear rumors that the domestic violence between Wasp and Ant Man will be downplayed, but in Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket Racoon will go on an intergalactic rape spree.

    1. BTW, Budd Dwyer wasn't fucking any little boys. He was corrupt, and the twist was that he really didn't need to kill himself. He could've gotten out of the mess, but that was learned much too late.

    2. Oops, that must've been a Freudian slip. Irredeemable Ant Man.

    3. Marvel cancelled that book before I ever got the chance to read it.

    4. I thought that on the internet, it's never to late to read comic books!
