1. Interesting to see that pointer re: Schulz' style change.

2. I wonder what the Pentagon thought of Avengers' handling of the F-35...or rather, its' Hulk-handling.

Sparky and the Pentagon

I bet that's a hed that's never been used before!

I thought the style-change pointer was interesting too. I'd noticed the change itself, but I'm not such a scholar that I could have (or knew that there was a particular strip at which one could have) pin-pointed it.

Haven't seen The Avengers, but if the military let the film-makers use equipment or locations, then they were happy with it.

Re: Sparky and the Pentagon

I think you'd enjoy the Hulk's treatment of that plane rather more than the Pentagon's PR people likely did.

In fact, there was a piece in Wired on how the Pentagon backed away from Avengers at speed, in part because they couldn't make sense of SHIELD's role in the whole Marvel Universe.

Re: Sparky and the Pentagon

Ah, then they didn't like it at all. But I think I'll have to enjoy it at second or third hand. The upcoming Kick-Ass movie notwithstanding, I'm pretty much super-heroed out.

Ah! for the good old days!

Suddenly I'm reminded of my days as a help-desk guy in tech-support. Some of the passwords I saw would have made an Icelandic troll blush like a Catholic virgin.

Re: Ah! for the good old days!

Catholic virgins can be pretty naughty, I've heard. Well, granted, my S.O. wasn't a virgin by the time I met her, but her being (at least nominally) Catholic at the time helped me gain some insights into these things :))

Re: Ah! for the good old days!

I almost said Icelandic trolls, rather than Catholic virgins, but than I realized I have no idea whether trolls — Icelandic or otherwise — blush.
