FUNNY ‘AVENGERS’ MANGA INTRODUCES EARTH’S MIGHTIEST HEROES TO JAPAN
On the off chance that you thought there was anywhere you could go to escape the presence of The Avengers now that they were the stars of a series of films that have taken in roughly 48 trillion dollars, don’t fret: They are everywhere. Or, to be slightly more accurate, they’re now in Japan, thanks to a series of comics designed to introduce Japanese children to Marvel’s team of superheroes.
Created by Fujiminosuke Yorozuya as part of an effort to promote Marvel and Toie’s new Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers anime, Marvel Avengers ran as a twelve-page one-shot in Monthly Korokoro Comic for kids, introducing Captain America, the Wasp, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Spider-Man to younger readers in a lighthearted comedy.
OH MY GOD
you guys do realized that hydra is a nazi organization, so this isn’t really a funny juxtaposition, it’s pretty gross actually
… it isn’t though? It’s a reference to the Winter Soldier film?? It’s a fictional Marvel organization???
Wait a minute you’re getting upset over a “fictional” organization from a comic book?!

GERMAN MAN’S REAL LIFE SPIDER-MAN WEB-SHOOTER IS A WRIST-MOUNTED LASER-GUIDED HARPOON GUN
One of the coolest things about Spider-Man is unquestionably his web-shooters, the devices that allow him to swing around the city to fight crime without having to worry about all the questionable anatomy that would be brought up if he produced webs the same way as actual spiders. They’re one of his trademarks, to the point where the new The Amazing Spider-Man series of films has reverted back to the idea of mechanical ones, replacing the previous movies’ “organic” web-shooters, and they’re the kind of thing that it would be really cool to own in real life.
And if you happen to be Patrick Priebe, you actually do. In honor of the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2, Priebe has constructed a homemade version of Spidey’s webshooter that can launch fishing line out of a wrist-mounted coil and retract it, triggered by the same motion that Spidey uses in the comics. Also, there is a brass-tipped harpoon pointed directly at his palm that is launched out with a surprising amount of force. That seems like a good idea, right?
