? I really, really didn’t want to post yet another Avengers clip, but this one is Agent Coulson totally fangirling out over meeting Captain America, and it’s just too damn perfect not to share. Honestly, if you only watch one clip, this one should be it.
? Speaking of the Marvel movie-verse’s main man, Agent Coulson, he’s making his official Marvel-616 comic universe debut in the sixth issue of Battle Scars. I approve mightily. Now get on that Phil Coulson, Agent of SHIELD series, Marvel. YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO.
? Someone cut together this incredibly well done “1970s” version of an Avengers movie trailer (well, TV movie). You’ll note that both Hulk is from his ’80s TV series, and Thor is from the late-’80s Hulk TV movie, and Iron Man Man is actually Exo-Man from the little seen, little loved TV movie bomb. Still, the video itself is fantastic — and the only thing better than having Kiss guest star is the casting of Paul Lynde as Loki.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
