What They’ve All Been Up To, Part II: Some Work While Others Play

We can continue the update about what everyone has been doing by visiting the workshop of Iron Man (AKA Tony Stark, AKA rich snark-meister who flirts with Sigyn because he knows it pushes all my buttons.) What futuristic project is he working on now?

Ah. Not futuristic project, but restoration of an antique. Stark is fixing the Winter Soldier‘s Soviet-era-tech nightmare of a robotic arm.

“You should be good to go, now, Buck.”

“Thanks, Stark.”

“Let me know if it gives you any more trouble. Oh, and I gave you an upgrade. You now have a built-in remote. No more hunting in the couch cushions when you want to change the channel or turn off the stereo. It’s fully programmable. You can map different functions to different finger movements. I put in a few to get you started.”

“Like what? Stark, what did you do?

“Relax, Sputnik! Nothing much. Just, uh, maybe don’t snap your fingers unless you want to order a bunch of random crap from the Home Shopping Network…”

Uh, oh. I believe fisticuffs may be imminent. Moving on!

Here we are in the rec room. Looks like Cap has rounded up a few buddies to play a game of Animal Upon Animal/ Tier auf Tier.

It’s Peter Quill‘s turn, and I can tell you from experience that a) getting another kangaroo on there is going to be problematic and b) Rocket is probably cheating.

Of course, placing your pieces while dangling from the ceiling is hardly legit…

And they say I don’t play by the rules!

Revenge of the Flora, Part 12

Meanwhile, on another part of the battlefield…

Rocket!

“What, Quill?  I’m kinda busy over here!”

“I got your message.  When you said you were ‘fighting giant flowers‘, I thought you’d been sniffing engine cleaner.  What’s with the flora?”

“I don’t know.  Just shoot something!”

“Anyone got dibs on the sunflower with the tennies?”

“Naw–knock yourself out!”

“Sunflower, meet Star Lord!”

Zwip! Zwip!

“Augh!  Get off me, human!

“You wish!  And now I think I’ll shoot you again!”

“Quill!  We don’t need a play by play.  Quit horsing around and just finish it off!”

“Well, Nebula, how about you do things your way and I’ll do things my way, which is much more dramatic.”

“More dramatic than a clean shot right between the eyes?”

Sorry! Pardon me! Just, uh, swinging through!”

52-spidey swings in

“Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man here!  Heard you guys were having trouble with some produce?”

53-spidey-quip

“Looks like this banana is down for the count, though. Off to find a livelier target!”

Foul blossom!  The good Nebula has already dealt you a blow that would have felled many a warrior!  Now feel the wrath of Mjolnir!”

54-thor-vs-posy-SE

“And stay down!”

55-thor-flower-grr-SE

“Quill!  Aren’t you done with that sunflower yet?”

Workin’ on it!  Hey–I thought that banana was already pudding?”

56-quill-nebula-SE

“Just making sure.  Go ahead, bear, twitch–I dare you.”

“Bam! And now the sun’s down!”

57-quill-smirk

“Let’s do a little experiment!  Let’s see if a jolt from my Widow’s Bites is enough to  turn you into popcorn!”

58-quill-widow-SE

“Aw, yeah!  Star Lord for the win!”
