@LegendsofSHIELD Your current engineer expert can surely explain if a normal San Juan roof can support the weight of a Quinjet.
@LegendsofSHIELD I'm interested to see into what Reina has transformed.
@LegendsofSHIELD What about Mephisto for Al Pacino? Does Marvel have the rights for him back?
@LegendsofSHIELD thx for the shout out guys! BTW, what about Pacino as Marvel's Mephisto (in Dr. Strange) or High Evolutionary (GotG2)
@LegendsofSHIELD we know you're fancy...but are ypu in the fast lane? LA to Tokyo?

So - do you think that the whole reason Raina got into wearing Flower dresses was because she was trying to get Dr. Cal to like her more - to feel closer to her - to make him feel more like she was his "Daisy"?
Just watched Guardians of the Galaxy again, Katherine Marie Thames-Nelson was holding on to her groot pop the whole time.

Lauren, you’ve probably seen Dane Whitman in a recent issue of Original Sin, where Marvel explored the long term impact of the blood lust linked to the Ebony Blade. Either there or as a recurring character in the current run of Avengers: World as the current leader of Euroforce. Check out Original Sin #2 of 5, as well as Avengers World #12.
Haley, you'll probably run into a great run of Black Knight pretty soon! One of my favourite appearances of both the Black Knight and Valkyrie (see my all-female avengers line-up) was in Defenders #4 from 1973. Its one of the first comics that I ever remember coveting back in the late 70s or very early 80s, probably from my Dad’s stash (I was too young to have picked it up myself when it came out). The heavy mystical/fantasy leanings of the early Defenders (including Dr. Strange, Black Knight, Valkyrie, Hawkeye) made a big impact on a fledgling D&D geek.
Dane Whitman first appeared with the Avengers in 1967 in Avengers #48, then moved around the Marvel universe for a while, including the Defenders as I mentioned. He later shows up again in the 1982s in Avengers #225 (in the middle of the epic Hank Pym & Janet Van Dyne - Trial of Hank Pym saga). As a side note, Avengers #227 debuts Monica Rambeau as Captain Marvel (who would later go on to lead the Avengers).
While a lot of people poke fun at the Jim Shooter era of the early 80s, it's a good stretch of Avengers to really get into and understand how some the characters we know today were shaped. And after all, this is when Janet Van Dyne is leading the Avengers even as you have Cap, Iron Man, Hawkeye and Thor on the active roster. A couple years later Monica Rambeau went on to lead it when you had Hercules on the team, so it was a pretty progressive line-up and approach to leadership at the time!
A final note on Black Knight; Dane is a complex character, who could actually bridge the gap between different aspects of the MCU. He’s in essence a normal guy (like most of Coulson’s crew) who has access to mystical weapons (ties to Dr. Strange), who in the past has ties to Eternals and Wungadore (Cosmic, Inhumans etc.). Translation: I haven’t given up hope that we might one day see him in AoS. A guy can dream can’t he…
