Daphne Byrne Issue #1 Recap

Ooowweee!!  It’s a spooky one today, betches!

DC is still coming out with shit. This is some of that shit.

Right now this comic is 4 issues deep and was created by Laura Marks, Kelley Jones, and Michelle Madsen.

Here’s what the description kinda said : 19th century New York City. A young girl is sad because her dad died and her mom went batshit. BUT IF THAT WEREN’T ENOUGH SHE ALSO IS BEING HAUNTED BY A PRESENCE WITHIN HER!

I mean, that’s a great logline if I’ve ever seen one. Which I haven’t.

OH! I wanted to mention that I almost did a recap for the new Batman that came out last month, but it was SOOOO boring that I just could not. But don’t take my word for it, it took me 5 minutes to figure out how to put my sweatshirt on today.

SO ANYWAYS, DAPHNE BYRNE. THAT’S THE GIRLS NAME! WHY ARE WE SHOUTING!?

The comic starts showing Daphne’s mummy at a psychic, then it shows the streets and this terrifying hobo begging for change, this is called FORESHADOWING, ok?

A face not even a mother could love.

After all of that foreshadowing we get to where Daphne is, she’s at school! Because she’s a child! A child of a rich person, but apparently the family is going broke because her dad died, and her schoolmates decide that, instead of helping their schoolmate who is going through a rough time and isn’t on her feet yet, they’re going to just talk crazy shit about her in attempt to get her to cry!

Girl: I heard they’re going to lose the carriage!

Girl 2: And her dad is dead! HAHAHAHA!!

Daphne: I’m just going to sit here and pretend to color because otherwise I’m going to cry, because I am a child and I’m being bullied for things that are out of my control. Ta-ta-ta-tum-tum. Avoidance is the best method for healing!

Dumb hoes.

Now her schoolmates are headed to the park and she is sitting on the ground playing with a rock and one of the girls is like “wtf is that” and daphne is like “It’s Basalt, a type of rock. I like it because I have witch tendancies, plus I wear all black, I’m really leaning into this whole dead dad thing. In fact, I’m going to the cemetary. See ya.”

And she does.

At the cemetary, she speaks to a plot of land that her father was buried in, and hugs a piece of stone with his name etched on it.

After her creepy good time with her dad she heads home. The maid and her mom are excited to see her and her mom invites her to see the psychic with her tomorrow! YEAH MORE SPOOKY GOOD TIMES!

Also time-out for creepy artwork appreciation.

Yeah, that’s right, sometimes I do my job well.

THE NEXT DAY THEY’RE OFF TO SEE THE MEDIUM PSYCHIC LADY!

On the way, Daphne’s mummy sees a homeless man begging for change, so she hands some change to Daphne and tells her young daughter to walk over to the homeless man and give him the change.

WHAT?

Do it yourself, bitch.

That’s what I woulda said, but what Daphne said was funnier.

 

Yeah, him.

The hesitation was dignified, because when Daphne hands over her mother’s change to the zombie in the corner, he grabs her wrist and then all these worms start coming out of his wrists, then he pulls her towards his face where she can see multiple pustules. And we can’t smell him through a page, but I’m sure he did not smell great.

I don’t think anyone smelled good in the 19th century, TBH.

He says some creepy shit like, “you’ll do nicely, he’ll be pleased.” And the girl just rips her hand from his grasp and her mom is like, “Stop messing around, Daphne, we got shit to do.”

They go do their shit, which is talking to a fake Medium and we find out she’s a fake because Daphne is like, daddy do you remember looking at the stars? And the medium is like I sure do, Daph. Then when she leaves she reveals to her mother that the woman is a fake and they never looked at the stars and her mom is pissed because let’s be real the ghost talking is all that she has. She’s grieving and needs something to believe in and Daphne went and took a shit all over her hopes and happiness. THIS WAS HER SLIVER OF HAPPINESS IN LIFE AND YOU TAINTED IT YOU BITCH.

They’re surrounded by ghosts! And a weird-ass cat!

So they have dinner, it’s pig’s feet and Daphne won’t eat it. blah blah blah now it’s nighttime, Daphne is having a nightmare where she meets a man in nightmareland who says he is her brother, but they look nothing alike, so idk what to believe! I definitely believe in illegitimate children though. Especially in the 1800s. Like half of these bitches illegitimate I’m sure. So lyke,

Screenshot 2020-04-28 at 11.46.19 AM
You’re terrifying!

Half-brother, more like. ANYWAYS! there’s more zombies there like the guy she gave the change to, and half-brother is all “I’m going to take you to your dad, but first you have to chop up a pig!”

And Daphne is like “I wouldn’t even have the feet for dinner, why would I do that?”

Half-brother : Because you get to see your dad, idiot, also we love murder! Murder is fun once you get used to doing it!

Daphne: Yeah, okay. Give me a knife.

Screenshot 2020-04-28 at 11.51.28 AM
I just have to murder it, right? We’re not having this for dinner again?

Daphne slices up the baby piggy and wakes up all bloody in her bedroom.

Screenshot 2020-04-28 at 11.02.23 AM
She got her period. Great.

Well, that was anti-climactic. Gonna keep on reading those next few issues though! Have you read this issue yet? Are you thinking about it? Are you confused about my sweatshirt incident? Let me know all of your thoughts in the comment section!!!

XOXO, Comic Book Betch

Mama’s Boy: X-Men #15 Comic Book Recap. Surprise guest: Daenerys and Drogon!

Remember when I recapped Cable? Well, we’re still in that universe for X-Men #15. Cable is a teenager and the X-Men live on Krakoa.

This one is written by Jonathan Hickman, Art by Mahmud Asrar, and Cover Art by Sonny Gho.

What a nice name Sonny is. Very nice.

Moving on, Cable has been taken and now his mommy and daddy are coming to save him! Aww. Before they jump into action to save their captured son, they decide to pontificate for a while on a random hill.

Can you hurry it up, Scott? Our kid could be dead.

Apparently it’s been over an hour since Nathan AKA Cable screamed out to his parents to save him, but they need to make one more pit stop before they go save him.

You think it’s cool to have the head of the X-Men and the most powerful mutant as your father and mother, respectively, but it turns out they’re just as awful as regular parents who forget to pick you up from pre-school so you have to stay through for the PM class, but on the plus side you get two lunches that day, and you never have to go back because now your parents are ashamed and afraid that they’re going to be reported to child services. Oh, wait was that just me?

I digress, anyways, so they show up to this round table of people who decide things because Krakoa is more important than their son. Cool, cool.

Our son still as one eye and arm left. He should be fine.

Meanwhile in the Otherworld Starlight Citadel, Khaleesi mother of dragons has pit husband and wife against each other in a fight to the death. Good to see she’s doing well after her death in Game of Thrones.

Glad to see Drogon is doing well.

So those ^^ two chat, and Apocalypse (the big guy) asks his wife to take off her mask, and she’s like “we’re in a pandemic” And he’s like -_-. So she’s like “fine” and she takes her mask off and they fight to the death.

Then we’re back to Jean and Scott who are telling this round table that Cable is in serious danger, cause he reached out psychically from Otherworld and it is nearly impossible to do so, but he’s in grave danger so, he was able to reach out from that far, because he is inches from death. But they’re also sure he can last a few more days if not hours.

The round table is like, “geeze your kid is dying that sucks…for you.”

Jean: Krakoa is also in danger.

Round Table: Why the fuck didn’t you lead with that?

So Cyclops tells the round table their plan which is to take a strike team to the Otherworld to get the people who were stolen back. And once the people are home they will close the gates for good so no one can attack them and they’ll be closed off from the world…s forever! Yay! Island quarantine!

Island quarantining is so hot right now.

So, the round table is like “that plan is dumb.”

Then Nightcrawler is like “count me in!”

Then the round table is like “no, you’re not going dummy. We’re a government and we can’t be doing shit all willy-nilly.”

Then Emma Frost talks to Cyclops in his head and she calls him “love” what a home-wrecking hoe. Or is Jean the home wrecker at this point? I can’t figure out these timelines anymore. SO I wonder since they had a psychic conversation not out loud to the panel, didn’t Jean hear? She’s psychic, amiright?

Then the circle decides that they’re just going to close the gates and save their own asses, and Cyclops is all “Well you’re the government of Krakoa, But The X-Men are the heroes!”

We couldn’t have gotten to this conclusion quicker? Your son is DYING!

So, they finally go pick up Cable from pre-school, er- I mean, from certain doom.

Cyclops is like : Jean, you ready.

Jean: Fucking duh. I’ve been trying to get you to stop talking for the last fucking hour.

It’s only my fucking son who is out there dying while you talk about nonsense.

So this whole time Scott has been talking, Khaleesi has Apocalypse fighting to the death against his wife, and we’re back to them and the wife is like “yield, you fool!” Then he stabs his wife. Probably because he is 300lbs and she is 87lbs, Didn’t seem like a fair fight to me, considering he is also an asshole. She’s bleeding out on the floor and Khaleesi is like “kill her, dude.” And Apocalypse is like “no, that’s my wife. It’s only cool to maim her, not kill her completely.”

But then uh-oh what’s this the wife puts her mask back on, and she’s back in the fight.

When you wear a mask, the life you save just may be your own.

Ah, so this whole issue was just a PSA to wear your damn masks!

Old Bitches Be Lying’ – Rorschach #2 Comic Book Recap

Welcome, welcome! I’m the Comic Book Betch, and today I am bringing to you the story of Rorschach AD.

If you didn’t read issue #1 and #2 then spoilers ahead!

Rorschach is a new series out by DC Black Label. Written by Tom King, art by Jorge Fornés, and the variant cover was created by Peach Momoko, which is the greatest name in the history of names.

In the first issue, two would-be assassins, a 19 year old named Laura and MAYBE the original Rorschach are at a rally for the New President, but before they get the chance to kill him they get shot and killed. So now there is a detective on the case trying to find out who the would-be assassins, they find out Laura’s identity very quickly, but the detective is on the case to find out about the other guy. He decides that he is William Myerson, the writer of Pontius Pirate, which if you read Watchmen, that’s the comic being compared throughout the entire series. OR It’s Davey Jones. IDFK. Anyways Rorschach is Walter Kovacs from the comics, but turns out these two have matching prints. So idk what the hell is going on.

That was your recap. Now issue #2.

The detective is trying to figure out what links William and Laura to Rorschach and whatever. So he talks to a lot of people. A LOT. It’s pretty boring. Anyways he finds out that William was a recluse and he can’t pinpoint how he would have hooked up with Laura.

Ah yes, the old sshfft noise.

Finally, he speaks to an old bitch named Alma, because she lives in William’s building and knew him because they went out on one date, once. Like 400 years prior.

It turns out that the date was awkward af and ended with Will on the elevator asking if he could kiss Alma at her door and she was like “nah.”

We stan a King who takes “no” for an answer.

And that could have been it, except she went on to marry some douche bag. She told that douche bag that she went out on one date with this nerd and the douche never left him alone about it. Fragile masculinity or what? You married the hoe, she went on one date and didn’t even kiss the guy, but because he’s a famous writer and you live in a one bedroom apartment that your wife owns makes you feel inferior so now you gotta pick on this fucking nerd for the rest of his life.

Annie Hall called she wants her sweater vest and oversized slacks back.

Then they show this weird scene where William took the name Alma Adler off of her mailbox and put it in his pocket. Creep.

Turns out the names were all replaced with numbers after that. Cool cool cool.

Then the detective finds this dumb comic that William wrote.

TTH.

The whole thing is trying way too hard to be smart. OR it went over my head because I’m not smart.

After reading this comic and talking to the security guard, he heads over to Alma’s apartment only to find a young man with moving boxes there. The man says that he switched apartments with Alma because her husband had the heart attack on this floor and she wanted to get out of the place because of that. The man doesn’t care because apparently this apartment is bigger than his. So they just switched. The guy also tells him about his one interaction with William and it was weird.

Grandpa hat sighting!

The detective goes detecting around the apartment and finds that the top lock is brand new never been used. OMG. So it was replaced! WOW. Detecting detecting.

Your hallway is dirty, clean that shit.

So the detective goes back to Alma and he starts going in on her. The conversation goes something like this.

Detective: Here’s a picture of Laura I think she was in your house with a guy wearing a Rorschach mask.

Alma : Abuhhh?

Detective: Yeah, so like I think they broke into your apartment and gave your husband a heart attack. They’re both dead now btw.

Alma: They’re dead? Well, damn I shouldn’t have given away my big, cozy ass apartment then.

Detective: Oh?

Alma: Crap.

Lyin’ ass hoe.

So that lyin’ ass hoe lied. I guess.

And that was it!

He figured it out!

The end!

I’d put money that this series either A) doesn’t get finished or B) is rushed for an ending because it is not good.

All in all, I did like this issue #2 better than issue #1, so maybe I will continue reading it. Like the Watchmen show on HBO it did get better and better after the first episode SO! Maybe Tom is going for a slow burn?

What did you guys think of this issue? Let me know in the comments below!

Iron Man Issue #3 Comic Book Recap : Lighting Strikes…MORE THAN ONCE!

WELCOME BACK!

This week I will be recapping the new Iron Man issue #3 that came out yesterday! Iron Man in 2020 not to be confused with Iron Man 2020 that came out in 2013.

Iron Man is written by Christopher Cantwell

Artist: CAFU

Cover: Alex Ross

Color Artist: Frank D’Amarta

Great job you guys. You did it! It’s a white man struggling with his privilege writing about another white man struggling with his privilege…and he’s in a clone body which is a WHOLE other level.

If you haven’t read issue #1 or #2, then I will recap that for you riiiiggghhhtttt meow.

Iron Man is in a clone body cause he almost died and also he’s having a mid-life crisis, he liquidated his company and put the billions of dollars he made back into the stock market causing people who aren’t billionaires to probably die of starvation because they can’t afford to feed their families anymore. Then he threw a party and invited Hell Cat, they leave the party to track down criminals and they decide to team up. Iron Man tries to get himself killed by his enemies twice and Hell Cat, a survivor of suicide herself, is like “don’t do that dummy.”

Also he invested in this guy who captured lightning. That will be important in this issue.

Let’s begin shall we?

We begin with Unicorn, an Iron Man foe, running into a field in Oklahoma and being struck by lightning. (SOUND FAMILIAR?)

Iron Man is struggling with who he is to the people and calls himself a Daemon and an Effigy, which means he thinks he’s somewhere on the God spectrum, cause he’s a white man and they have God complexes.

Hey kiddos, sorry for ruining your game of kickball! Wait, that’s not what the kids do these days! Where the fuck are your iPads?

Iron Man drops down into a school playground to get some much needed attention before being scolded by the teachers for “riling up” the kids. He takes off, feeling like he did nothing wrong and that those people are the ass holes. Classic white man syndrome.

Next scene, Iron Man finds his garage painted with the phrase made popular by social media, “Eat The Rich.” Then next to that garage is his mid-life crisis car MELTED by the MELTER. So Iron Man beats the shit out of him and leaves.

Why does the Melter wear Metal? Seems ill-advised.

After nearly killing The Melter, Iron Man orders a burger from a fast food place then boards a plane with Hellcat in coach. He’s really making an effort to “get down with the people.”

That’s why you don’t check a bag, n00b.

Hell Cat and Tony then get into a fight about suicide, and it’s dark. Then Hell Cat hits the snooze button on Tony and tells him to wake her up when they land because she’s sick of his privilege bull shit talk. Side Note: I’m actually pretty proud of the way Cantwell chose to write this series, he has Hell Cat as the voice of reason and she can check his ass back into place whenever he starts talking like a white guy ass hole.

Tony meets up with the lightning guy he invested in from the first issue. Did I mention that he was creepy and clearly a villain? Because you should know that, too. Anyways, they are at his “lightning farm” which reminds me of those solar-powered windmill farms in the midwest.

Ew, is that your house? Poor.

So anyways, this poor guy is like look at what your investment created! Within days we now have thousands of these lightning rods! DAYS! Can you believe it? It’s the Marvel Universe so I guess we believe everything.

Anyways they then have a chat and it goes like this

Poor Lightning Guy: Hey, where’s your hot friend? You know the one who dresses up like a Cat?

IM: Yeah, she’s pissed at me so we’re kind of taking a break from our friendship right now.

Poor: Cool, then I’m going to hurt you really badly because I know she’s not coming.

IM: Wait, Wut?

Dumb ass, stupid ass, trick ass, mother fucking, stupid ass bitch.

After Tony is rendered unconscious on the floor, the Poor guy’s friends show up, and it’s the SAME guys that Tony has battled in the last two issues. WUT???? Way to set up a storyline, you go boys!

Oh you wanna be a God? Sounds fucking familiar, right? Ugh you stupid ass white trick ass mother fucking men.

Luckily for Iron Man, his co-star Hell Cat has just burst onto the scene and run over all these loser with her really cool, and I imagine, rented jeep.

Don’t we all?

Cue: Really cool battle scene. Where they punch, choke, blast, and drop kick their enemies!

Oh No! The poor guy has lightning!

The lightning guy kills Iron Man and Hell Cat, then leaves without checking their pulses.

Or checking if one of them might have a suit with a defibrillator! What a dolt!

Cause guess what the fuck what? Hell Cat-oh, wait, no, Iron Man- HIS suit has the defibrillator! Can you believe?

Hell Cat is dead. Bye!

Wa-wait, you-you, you forgot, your d-d-dumb glasses! HA! Burn.

Batman: Three Jokers Issue #3 Comic Book Recap

I’m back betches. I’ve been reading this new Batman series by Geoff Johns, Jason Fabok, and Brad Anderson.

It’s about Batman and three jokers. Just like in the title. Three issues have come out so far and this one is the best one.

Batman has teamed up with Batgirl and his old Robin, Red Hood, or Jason. The most hated Robin of all time. In the first issue they discovered that there are three jokers parading around killing people and they need to find the real one. Red Hood shoots one of them and that makes Batman and Batgirl really mad because they are super weird for the law, and then in the second issue they discover that the remaining two jokers are creating tons of other jokers because the Jokers want to create the ULTIMATE JOKER. That’s what leads us here. OH and Batgirl totally kissed Red Hood last issue and then immediately regretted it and we find out why she regretted it in this issue.

So let’s recap shall we?

First off the trio are having a meeting which gets heated quickly, with Batman grabbing Jason and threateningly holding him. Like Batman, take a chill pill. A Xanax. A Xanax is a chill pill btw.

OH! JUST BECAUSE I MURDERED SOMEONE IN COLD BLOOD I’M THE BAD GUY? WHATAMI? A COP??

After they scream dramatically at each other for a minute, Barbara is like, dudes wtf? Fragile masculinity amiright? So because she owns them both they both take a breath and Batman reminds them that they agreed to work together and Red Hood can’t go and shoot everybody all willy nilly. Like a cop. RIP BREONNA TAYLOR

The trio is like, well the jokers are trying to make a better joker. The ultimate joker, maybe if we knew who the real joker was, and his true identity this would be easier and Batman is like “er, righhttt. Anyways Jason I’m sorry I assumed you were dead and then left you for dead, but the writers asked the readers to call a number if they wanted you live and another number if they wanted you to die, and everyone wanted you to die, so the fact that you’re alive now means that the writers DID not listen to the audience.”

And Red Hood is like “Oh is it because I’m mad annoying? And was mad annoying? And still am really annoying?”

And Batman is like “yeah.”

Jason, are you-are you about to cry? Bitch.

Then Jason says “I think you know who the real joker is and you’re not telling us.”

And Batman is all “nuh-uh.”

Next scene, Batman goes to prison to visit Joe Chill. Joe Chill is the man who murdered Batman’s parents in front of him. Anyways he’s dying of cancer and has been moved to a hospital bed, but the Jokers took him from the hospital bed and brought him to a movie theater.

All of the bats and Red Hoods get to the theater and it’s raining. Spooky.

WHIPSHAW! CLOMP! SQUUEGY. (how imagine it sounds when all three of them landed)

They split up in the theater. Batman finds Joe Chill and a Joker immediately, meanwhile his two sidekicks are fighting jokers on the other levels.

I know I got junk in the trunk, but I don’t think I need this many bellhops.

Batman tries to save Joe Chill, but Joker is wearing a vest of dynamite, snooze. Get another prank will you? Anyways, he’s playing a video in the theater of Joe Chill explaining why he killed Bruce’s parents, and why he is sad about it and knows it was a mistake.

Batman is all, “Hey Joker, this is an old man dying of cancer why do you want to make him into a Joker?”

Joker: Because he means everything to you! And I want to mean everything to you!

Batman: Awe. That’s cute.

Batgirl: WTF?

Batman: Like, you know, in a stalkery way.

Batgirl: *raises eyebrows*

See? The Joker is just tired. He wants to retire, maybe to a beach somewhere. Yeah, a beach. That would be nice, eh Jokesy?

So there’s this bath of chemicals that creates Jokers, and This Joker wants to drop Joe Chill in it, and he even has him hanging from rope tied to a chair right above it, any second he can cut it and Joe will go tumbling in.

CUT TO: crazy fight scene

Batman knocks the lighter from Joker’s hands, Joker shoots at Batman, Batman kicks Joker in the stomach, Joker slits the rope and Joe goes tumbling towards the chemical bath, but aha Batman saves him!

DUHNUHNUHNUHNUHNUHNUH JOE CHILL!

Outside of the theater, Joe apologizes to Batman, then Batman saves Joe’s life again when crumbling pieces of the roof threaten to crush him. The Joker shows up and then gets shot in the face and Batman is like “wha?” And it turns out it’s another Joker who shot him. Batman arrests this one and it’s over! Now Red Hood can awkwardly hit on Batgirl!

You can feel her eye roll through the page

The remaining Joker, The Comedian, explains everything, and I’m too lazy to write it so here’s the picture.

That has to be a chin implant, no?

This Joker says he knew how the whole thing would play out, Batman would save Joe Chill’s life knowing that he was sorry and he was the one in pain now, not Batman. That would heal Batman from his parents death and now his greatest pain would be the Joker. SUCH A CREEP!

Later Joe Chill dies, and Bruce holds his hand as he goes. HOW SWEET. Oh my gosh this is the love issue for sure.

Red Hood drives off to Alaska, but before he goes, he writes a note to Barbara AKA Batgirl. It goes something like this:

Dearest Barbara,

I’ve always admired you, for being hot and kicking people’s asses. I will totally give up being Red Hood to be with you, and we can have babies and I’ll be a stay-at-home dad and you can fight all the crime you want! This is not super desperate. I know we only kissed, for like one second but I totally got hard, and that’s why I think it was more. Even though you told me it wasn’t. I know it was and I’m also a man and can’t take no for an answer. You like me. You totally have to like me. Because I like you!

Love,

Red Hood.

Luckily the note falls off of her apartment door, because he wrote a damn note and not a long text or DM like everyone else would.

Next we get this cool intercut scene where Batman and Alfred talk meanwhile we get a glimpse at The Comedian Joker’s former life. Batman reveals that he knows the real identity of the Joker and he keeps it a secret to protect his family.

BUM BUM BUHHH!!

You knew this whole time, Bruce?! What the fuck! And you totally lied to your friends earlier when they were like “you know who he is don’t you” and you were all “nope.”

Damn. The shade.

But uh-oh, everyone’s least favorite Robin is up to his annoying ass tricks again. The same douchemobile Hummer we saw Red Hood driving in earlier, just pulled up to the Joker’s family’s house.

Damn, what a douche bag.

THAT’S THAT! How did you like this recap? Was it terrible, was it funny? Did you even make it this far into the review??? Let me know in the comments below!

X-Force #1

Yeah, X-Force #10 literally just came out, but here I am recapping the first issue from November 2019, because I AM BEHIND. It’s a pandemic, okay? And I also recently got into Dune. So that’s been a whole thing.

X-Force #1 is a new Diddy by Benjamin Percy and Johnathan Hickman.

So, like, let’s recap it shall we?

First there is this meeting of pureblood muggles who hate mutants and they want to discuss how to kill all the filthy mutants but first they need to take a blood test, because if someone inside the meeting has mutant blood they have to kill them.

So, this was back in November 2019 right? I HAVE to assume that’s where all the supplies for virus testing went and that’s why it took 6 months to get COVID-19 tests to America. WOW. The more you know.

Back to the scene, obviously there’s a mutant here, cause there is one bitch in this creepy ass masked crowd who is like heheheh, I’m wearing gloves, so blood testing is, er, not easy with those on, aye?

Then she jumps up and beats everyone to death! Just kidding they beat HER up. And who is it? It’s Domino! WHOAAA.

Movie voice: Everything was going according to plan, until her lucky streak ran cold.

IMG_1474
I literally just got my hair done, can you not push my head onto the floor? Like wtf?

MEANWHILE,

The Beast and Wolverine are on Krakoa, this island of mutants and monsters which we already know about because I recapped Cable #1.

Beast is following monsters around for science, not for a lay. Wolverine is beating up monsters for sport, so they disagree about stuff. THAT’S IT.

IMG_1475
Of course the Beast is soft, look at the fur. FLUFFY AF.

Next scene, Black Tom Cassidy is now a plankton. He straight up just listens to plants all day as they crawl over his body making him look like he needs a shower.

The plants tell him that Kitty Pryde is arriving on a giant ship for some reason with a bunch of mutant refugees.

IMG_1477
Why is she standing like that? When did Kitty become Jack Sparrow?

There’s a scene after this of some large guy getting on a plane.

IMG_1479
Does this picture make you want to lick your finger and rub it across this guy’s black dot on his forehead? No? Just me. Fine.

So then, Sage and Charles Xavier are hanging out and Sage is like “I dunno where Domino is.” And Charles is like “Okay, then, bye.” Then he walks through a mirror and ends up at a party in Sokovia where he immediately starts chugging champagne. This guy can live!

Back on the plane with the mole guy, they hit some turbulence and everyone freaks out and grabs that air thing that falls from the top when you’re in an airplane? What the hell is that called? The thing where they tell you to put your on before you put it on your own baby? Because baby can hold their breathe longer or something? Yeah that thing. Anyways, I digress. Mole man does not put the air thingy on his face and instead him and some other muscle dudes get together and take off all their clothes.

Then they put on new clothes and jump out of a plane.

IMG_1480
Sexy Time.

These dude bros are headed for Krakoa. Charles Xavier returns from his party and he’s wasted, and Tom Cassidy is like, “the Earth is telling me things are getting weird, bro.”

And Charles is like, “is this about the refugees, bro? Cause that’s fucked up, and Sage deals with that anyways. Do you like your job? Because a lot of people don’t like that you have it, bro.”

Then Tom is like “BRO! RUN!!”

Cause the muscle dudes are shooting at everyone.

So they run and things like “BUDDA BUDDA” and “KROOM” are littered across the pages.

Then for some reason, Black Tom lets everyone know that his genitals stink?

IMG_1478
There’s got to be an ointment for that.

The island of Krakoa does some fun shit, like come up and strangle bad guys with its vines. Then Charles ends up in the middle of a clearing and he puts his hands up in surrender and then one of the dudes shoots him and everyone is like “GASP” and “NOT AGAIN!” and “HE JUST STARTED WALKING LIKE WHAT THE FUCK?”

And then Sage, who was not fighting at all and in some room somewhere is like “Hey guys, are you there? I can’t feel Charles anymore, how is this possible?”

And it’s like, damn Sage, you can’t figure out why his spirit disappeared from your radar while there are explosions all over the island? She stupid.

AND THAT WAS IT!

Killing off your main character in the first book was stolen right from George R.R. Martin, but I guess it’s fine. All ideas are borrowed anyway right?

What did ya’ll think of this issue? What did ya’ll think of this recap? Let me know in the comments below who you think the dumbest a-hole is in this issue. Is it Black Tom for referring to himself in third person?  Charles Xavier for getting his ass shot and killed again? Or Piotr for still hanging out with Kitty Pryde?

 

Star Girl 2

Ugh.

Here we go, again.

Spoiler: The show is still terrible. But we shall journey on.

We begin showing Pat the Robot again after the battle we had yesterday and Star Girl jumps on his back and rides him home. Not in a concupiscent way.

I just learned that word from Russel Brand.

Back at the scene of the crime the green leather dress man finds Star Girl’s burnt up student ID. She is dumb for bringing identification to a fight scene. Like wtf.

Back at Courtney and Pat’s garage they’re both pretty fucked up from the fight, and Pat decides to stick his finger in the open wound on Courtney’s head which is fine. Just add some hydrochlorine to that shit.

Pat tells Courtney about the Injustice League which was the group of bad guys who killed star man and hawk man and hawk girl, etc and Courtney is like, why would you move us to a town full of super villains, STRIPSEY! Finally Courtney is smart about something.

staff

We then get a new scene with a different family and some like 25 year old man walks into his parents room talk’em bout a noise he heard and thinks someone is inside. Why are you 25 living with your parents and also going into their bedroom when there’s a fucking noise? GO investigate it yourself.
ANYWAYS, the dad grabs a wand from a safe and ho-ho-ho look who broke in, it’s his old pal man in green dress and the first thing he says to him is WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU WEARING A GREEN DRESS. Like, thank you, SOMEONE agrees with me. I like this guy already.

Back with Courtney and Pat, it turns out one member of the justice league survived for a while, Hourman. But Hourman got killed when he tracked the injustice league to Nebraska and Stripsey was given the information to take them down.

The next day at breakfast, C and P show up with random head wounds so the mom is mildly concerned because she’s like “what happened” and they’re like “we both fell down the stairs.” and she’s like “I’m late for work. Bye.”

Later at school, Courtney takes the star-man uniform and sews it up in the sewing class and apparently she is a terrible sewer because she breaks every single machine as she goes.

Meanwhile, Pat joins a gym.

After school there is some sort of assembly for no apparent reason, but it is the perfect place for Brain Wave to match his burnt student ID with a random hoe. And he finds that random hoe and chases Courtney into a deserted hallway, like stay in a group Courtney, how fucking hard is that? Cause now this man who moonlights as an ugly drag queen just threatened to kill Courtney’s WT mom.

Next we have a scene where Courtney and Pat argue about being superheroes again and their face wounds magically disappear, then reappear in the next scene. OOOO. Spooky.

Well they have to save WT mom’s life now, so Pat Robot goes down to meet Brain Wave and gets his ass handed to him. Until Star Girl shows up in her new slutty costume and beats the shit out of Brain Wave. Brain Wave eventually gets the upper hand and pins star girl down so she can’t reach her staff. You know the staff with a mind of it’s own that can fly? So the staff literally just felt like resting. I guess? This show is not good.

Pat shines a light on Brain Wave and apparently that’s his weakness. I should have known because he was so damn pale!!

brain wave
How come your son is hot if you look like that?

The light gives Star Girl time to grab her staff and shoot him in the face.

He probably could have died but since they’re “heroes” they bring the guy to the hospital.

So they won! It’s over. Yay!

Nope, cue new bad guy rolling into town.

Some other old white guy walks into this random building and he goes to check on a beast that’s been kept locked up in a cage. For how long, I do not know. But if this Beast man is your friend like you’re pretending he is, you probably should let him out of his jail cell. Anyways I think this white dude is, Icicle, the one who killed Star Man and maybe is also the Senator? White people all look the same. I swear it’s just the actor who played Brain Wave with a brown wig on.

The End! Until next week. I wish Luke Wilson didn’t have such expensive taste but I must keep them egg rolls on his plate.

Star-Girl Episode 1 Recap

I’m going to keep this short because Lord knows I can go on for hours with these mo-fucking recaps.

The CW is not something I watch on the daily, but as it is flooded with superhero content and has been for some time it seems like I’m a pretty lazy comic book blogger since this is the case. So here comes my first TV show recap. And I’m starting with the wonderful, Star Girl.

Now, did I want to watch this when I saw the trailer? No.

Do I want to keep watching it now that I’ve seen the first episode? Also No.

But will I be watching it in order to keep food on Luke Wilson’s table? Yes.

luke-wilson-e1566406612187
Look at the sadness in those eyes! He’s so hungry! Feed him! Someone feed him!

Speaking of Luke Wilson, he plays Stripsey, the sidekick to Star Man. What’s weird about that is, is that Stripsey was Star Man’s butler and five years his senior. He also has a flying car that blows up.

The beginning of this show is cool. It’s like a fight scene. Explosions. Bad guys VS good guys. There are lasers. Star Man gets stabbed really bad and then he tells Stripsey as he is dying that his staff will eventually go to someone worthy, and that worthy person is definitely not Stripsey. I guess they thought the dying scene between Stripsey and Star Man was funny but it wasn’t? So…Anyways Stripsey is all “You have to go to a hospital, man” and Star Man is all “What fucking superhero do you know goes to the fucking hospital let me die in your car as it blows up, how about that?”

Cut to: A little girl on Christmas Eve sad because her mom is leaving for work. Grow up, bitch. Parents have to work. Sorry you have to be with your rich best friend on Christmas Eve.

This selfish little girl grows up to be Courtney and Courtney’s mom, who is type-casted as a white trash diner waitress in every movie btw,  is dating Stripsey, who just goes by Pat now. Pat has a fat dog and a son who is really annoying and likes video games and science. So I guess he will be the Ron to Courtney’s Kim Possible? Except, like, they won’t make out. Hopefully.

kim_possible
Her pants hanging off always bothered me.

Also Courtney is like a gymnast or something.

They move to Nebraska for some reason and everyone in Nebraska is really nice to them except Courtney who goes to school and no one likes her. Which is so weird because she is a “regulation hottie” not a fucking nerd. But some old Asian bitch who must be a teacher because there’s no way that old bitch was in high school, decides to relegate Courtney to the table of “loners.”

The jocks come over to the table and try to see nude pictures of one of the hoes at her table. Courtney ends up standing up for  the girl who doesn’t want to show off her hoe pictures. Then the jocks are like “then we’ll take your phone, blondie” and she’s like what the fuck and pushes this dude and she gets in trouble because white men don’t get in trouble. Not in Nebraska anyway.

Later at dinner, the nerd son is like “I made friends.” And then the white trash mom is like “did you make friends, Courtney? It’s Friday. You should probably go hang out with someone. Like seriously, can you leave?”

So Courtney is like “okay, I’ll go to the basement since I have no friends.”

In the basement star man’s staff is there, blah blah blah. She goes to hang out with the sentient staff and they decide to blow up the jock from earlier’s car.

After Courtney blows up the car and beats the jock in the head with the sentient staff, satisfied, she decides to go home.

Stripsey grabs the staff from Courtney and is like “hey, that’s Star Man’s” And when it touches Stripsey it dies. Ooo. That means Courtney is worthy.

Courtney assumes that Star Man must be her dad because the staff works for her, and also because Pat shows her a picture of the JSA and the guy in her locket is the guy in the photo, so she finds her mom and is like, “is my dead dad a superhero?”

Which is a strange thing to ask your parent.

WT mom is like, “No. He showed up five times in your entire five years of living and one of those times was to shove his dick inside of me and forget to pull out. Trust me, if he was a hero, he would know how to pull out.”

mom
“Trust me.”

UGH IT’S NOT OVER.

The jock who got his car blew tells his daddy, and his daddy is clearly a super villain and I’m not just saying that because he’s a rich, white man. He wears circular wire rim glasses. Yeah. Their conversation goes like this:

“Daddy, a girl beat me up with a glowing stick! WAHH!”

“Tell me more about this glowing stick, who was the person wielding it? Did they perhaps have a star on the front of their shirt?”

“What, um no, it was dark, are you mad I stole and then blew up your car?”

“Hmm, what? Oh, no. It was insured for twice what it was worth, you have made me richer with your stupidity. Goodbye, if you learn anything from this exchange it is that you never have to take responsibility for your actions because anything you do is fine!”

Then the dad goes into his closet and opens it and there inside is the tackiest green, leather dress I have ever seen.

Please, go back and change.

Later at Courtney’s house the staff wakes her up to go play again and luckily she is sleeping in bed fully clothed with the jeans and t-shirt and zip-up hoodie she was wearing earlier. Who sleeps like that?

Anyways, they get on a roof and she does treats the staff like it’s a pair of uneven bars or a pommel horse. Then an unknown entity begins to telekinetic-ally beat the shit out of her. She is thrown into a fence and then into a pile of tires.

The telekinetic guy is the one who wears the ugly green dress. And he tries to read her thoughts, but she slaps him with the staff. Then he starts shucking giant tires at her which she slaps out of the park with the Staff like she’s fucking Aaron Judge.

Then a giant robot comes to save her.

THE END.

What did you guys think of Star Girl? Did you hate it as much as I did? Will you continue to watch for sad Luke Wilson? Will this show be canceled in the middle of the season, or will they let it go on for it’s full run? All these answers and more will be revealed as 2020 continues to drag on trying to give 2016 a goddamn run for its mother fucking money.

Cable #1 Comic Book Recap

My first thought upon seeing this comic book was that Cable looks mad fucking weird. Like when has he ever had a baby-face. Then I realized that this comic book, created by Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto, is about baby Cable.

Baby Cable is living on the mutant island of Krakoa and he fights other mutants for fun. These matches are refereed by the Silver Samurai.

The comic starts with him fighting his “Uncle Logan” in one of these mutant fight matches and for some unknown reason Kris Jenner is there cheering him on.

Screenshot 2020-05-14 at 5.29.28 PM
Is that Kim next to Kris? Or did Khloe lose the blonde hair?

Cable is getting ready to celebrate with his gal pals, Armor and Pixie, when a little boy named Curse asks Cable to go save his friend, Fauna. Fauna is a little bitch who decided to cross the border of Krakoa and go into the side of the island that is filled with monsters. Why these mutants decided they should live on an island filled with monsters is not my fucking business, but they explain it anyone. The reason is that Krakoa ATE another island. Sure, we’ll go with that. I’m fine, are you guys fine? Islands eat islands. New Normal.

Within like one page Cable finds Curse’s friend Fuana, because the meat of this story must be here and not the missing kid. Pixie is like “you found him? Coolio I’m going to meet up with you, but also there’s a giant Lion Monster following me so watch out when I get there!

lion
soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur, happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr.

Cable gets ready to fight this lion and starts throwing grenades at it, meanwhile Pixie decides to drug the little kid, Fauna with her magical “pixie dust” or “Molly” as it’s known here on Earth.

“I can feel my hair growing”

Fauna says that the Lion is hurt and needs help, but Cable is like “you’re high, get out of here.” So Pixie flies him off while Armor runs in and tackles Cable and straddles him then begins talking about her feelings.

Yeah, while a giant lion crushes you into the ground with it’s paw, THAT is the best time to discuss your relationship.

Despite Armor trying to distract Cable by any means necessary, he sees a piece of giant metal sticking out of the giant lion paw. He’s like we’ll pull it out and heal it and then the Lion will be our friend. Armor is like “okay, how do we get the lion to stand up and show us his paw?” That’s when Cable takes out a giant gun and shoots it into the Lion’s face. Yeah, kinda the opposite thing that ya’ll were going for, but that gun exploding in its face is what gets the Lion to fall down on it’s side and it is stunned long enough that Cable takes the metal out and heals the paw. 2 stones, 1 bird.

The metal piece turns out to be a magic sword, oooo.

The lion runs off because he’s like “They shoot me and then heal me? This clearly a toxic environment. I don’t want to be gas-lighted into thinking that because they say they’re sorry, it makes it okay that they shoot me in the face. I am a strong Independent Lion and I will be respected as such.”

RCO023_1583943469
Purple blood? FABULOUS!

This sword sends Cable on a mushroom trip and he remembers all the battles the former owner fought. Then he passes out. His friends gather around him and Fauna is like, “did I get Cable killed?” And Armor is like, “It’s fine, we’ll make up a different story.”

WHAT THE FUCK. She was just straddling him and trying to bone him under a lion’s paw and now she could care less if he died right now.

Spoiler Alert, as if all of my recaps aren’t total and complete spoilers, Cable stirs awake and he’s like, “I have a new sword, yay!”

Cable shows it to his dad, Scott Summers AKA Cyclops, and Cyclops is like “you’re naughty going to Monster Island.” and Cable is like “But I have this sword. I wonder where it’s from?” Then Cyclops is like “Well, let’s let the writers create a whole new world in the next few panels.”

The sword is from space New York and these rude titan soldiers want it. SO! They’re going to go after Cable. Obviously.

THE END!

NOT!

There’s a few more pages. On a completely different planet or island or time idk which, Old Man Cable is shooting crabs with a large gun.

Now The End.

Look, I’m old again!

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF CABLE #1?

I thought it was pretty good. Great set up, great characters, violence, heroism, romance. This one’s got it all.

Except Cable’s best friend, Deadpool.

Keeping hope alive for a crossover.
