Lillipup in the only Pokémon that matters.
Deal with it.
(Based on this goofy-ass listicle, and thousands of others like it, lol.)
|It also includes this awesome shout-out to the haters story, which is just DELIGHTFULLY sarcastic.|
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Tsum Tsums are HUGE! Well, not LITERALLY (they’re actually pretty tiny) but these seemingly cute and cuddly creatures are sweeping the globe! So what happens when these pint-sized piles of fur find their way into the Marvel Universe? After a crate of them falls to Earth en route to THE COLLECTOR, one small group of Brooklyn teenagers will find out! Featuring all of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains, this is sure to be TSUM-thing you won’t want to miss!So that about covers the plot. The story opens with the Guardians of the Galaxy diverting a shipping lane to make way for a space-turtle migration. A space-crate falls off a space-truck, somehow eventually lands in NYC, where it's found by a group of geeky, superhero-obsessed kids. When they open it, they discover a pile of blank(?) Tsum Tsums.
|He takes up half the cover and he's not even really Iron Man.|
|Full disclosure: I love this cover so much that it's currently the background image on my laptop.|
|I felt this should have had a sound-effect, regardless of the physics of space. Maybe a POINK?|
|"HUH?!" I enjoy a good interrobang.|
|This is not a particularly serious comic.|
|I literally got misty at this panel. Shut up.|
|SUPER. MAGIC. MAKEOVER.|
|I love Dazzler's straight-up "PEW PEW PEW" pose here.|
|I love the look of elation on She-Hulk's face as she is being chucked at a dragon's head.|
So wait, THESE are the teasers that have all the dorks freaking out about how the PC Police are diversifying their comics to death? Three black guys, a brown girl, and a VERY questionable Native American cliché (I mean I kind of like Red Wolf but the writers will have to be VERY careful)? Everybody screaming that they're "turning Wolverine into a woman" despite the fact that's clearly X-23 and she's clearly STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO not only Wolverine, but the Wolverine from noted sexist grossbag Mark Millar's relentlessly-bleak "Old Man Logan" story that these same dorks all looooved?
Honestly, I am reassured by these images. They still have mutants, they still have a Fantastic Four character (even if it looks like The Thing's joining the Guardians of the Galaxy?), and Karnak - one of my favorite characters - is apparently alive again.
Really guys, my literal biggest concern here is that Spider-Gwen gets a better name than "Spider-Gwen".
