Parks and Recreation, a show about politics in a small U.S. town, often finds clever ways to parody various topical issues taking place in Washington D.C. Tomorrow’s episode is no different, as this time they’re taking a shot at much debated filibuster reform, and they’ve enlisted the help of Patton Oswalt to do so. Oswalt, playing the role of one of Pawnee’s many
insane passionate citizens, goes on a completely improvised nerd rant in which he recites what he believes should be the plot of the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, including an aging Luke, Han and Leia crossing over into the Marvel film universe as they team up with the Avengers, Spider-Man, the X-Men and more to take on Thanos. Not all of the Avengers make it into Oswalt’s cut, as he’s replaced “second tier” characters Hawkeye and Black Widow with noted Marvel A-lister Moon Knight. Naturally.
You can see the full video above, and while this is obviously meant to be a joke, let us all pray to our respective deity’s that no executive at Disney ever hears this proposal.
If his Tumblr page is any indication, Iros Yan is a pretty big fan of both the Avengers and the Powerpuff Girls. He’s also fond of combining the two, and a quick look through his Tumblr shows that he’s been creating various comics and illustrations depicting the Avengers in Powerpuff Girls style art for some time. But he may have just outdone himself with a recreation of the Powerpuff Girls opening credits that features Thor, Captain America and Iron Man standing in for Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup.
Here I have drawn the god of thunder, THE MIGHTY THOR!
This is my take on how he looks in his snazzy new “Marvel NOW!” costume.
He looks plenty angry about something though, so perhaps someone made fun of his new costume in spite of how snazzy it looks.
This was colored by the thunderously talented, Joe Hunter!
I included the photos of the original art to show you what it looks like and to let you know that it is for sale in my Etsy store!
Perhaps you’d like it for yourself, or perhaps you have a friend that might enjoy it as some kind of holiday gift!
You can also get a print or a t-shirt or an iPhone case or a pillow with this on it over at my Society6 store!
Don’t believe me? Look at these pictures!
I told you it was on a pillow!
Drawing things is how I make my living, so, if you’d like to buy it that would be awesome, but if you can’t afford it but still want to help me out, your reblogs are VERY appreciated!

Agent Coulson Joins The Hot Toys Avengers With New Movie Masterpiece Action Figure
Not content to merely star in The Avengers, its multiple connected Marvel movies and the upcoming SHIELDTV series on ABC, actor Clark Gregg has Tweeted that “And now this aging fanboy can die happy…” withAgent Phil Coulson finally receiving an action figure from the scary-accurate Hot Toys. Though his character is arguably the most beloved fixture in The Avengers multimedia empire, Gregg’s likeness has been skipped over by Hasbro and most other toy licensees due to Coulson, well, more or less being a dude in a suit rather than, say, a god with a hammer and cape (although he did get a Minimate in the Thor movie line). Toyeticism, man! Hot Toys began teasing an Agent Coulson release over the summer amid the flurry of toy reveals for essentially the entire rest of The Avengers movie lineup, but these are the first official images of the full figure. Full solicitation info hasn’t surfaced yet, but if it’s anything like the rest of the HT Avengers figures, its release date is likely later in 2013 with a price tag in the $200 range. You can see an accessory-packed press photos of the Agent Coulson Hot Toys figure after the cut.
