A multi-fandom blog devoted to no one particular thing--though comics (and Young Avengers, especially) get a lot of play. Pop culture, cooking, travel (especially Paris), awesome animals, kickbutt TV and movies, and books galore await you here. I am horrible about tagging.
I am attempting to write some fan fiction.
This should terrify you.
I think that covers it.
Waffle fries topped with velveet a and sloppy joe meat and sauce? I GUESS I could eat it…
They’re just so strange. (Not behemoth-depths strange, but strange nonetheless.)

Watched and loved Guardians of the Galaxy last night! Was so inspired to draw my own tale of the movie’a StarLord!
So remember that thing I did with Young Justice/Teen Titans a while back? I’m going to be doing the same thing in rebooting/redesigning my own line-up of the Avengers! There will be 10 of these guys just like last time! And here’s number two! I hope you guys enjoy it!
Jimmy Woo rolls in at number two.
Agent James “Jimmy” Woo as himself
Jimmy’s parents fled China in an attempt to leave behind their family’s rather bloodied and criminal past. His parents defected from organized crime and were able to start a new life in Los Angeles, California, where Jimmy was born. He excelled in all of his classes and in athletics. Bombarded with spy films and a few eye-witness accounts of actual superheroes in action, Jimmy pined to become a hero. Because of his lack of powers, he decided his best bet was to become a special agent of the FBI, which he succeeded in becoming. On one mission, his paths crossed with master spy, Nick Fury, and who he worked with and was informed of another organization that could use his abilities, S.H.I.E.L.D. In a matter of months, Jimmy quit the FBI and joined up with Nick Fury to help take down super villany across the globe. His reputation excelled and he was eventually placed as the S.H.I.E.L.D. rep in the superhero group, the Avengers. Despite lacking in superpowers, Jimmy is an essential and vital member of the team. His technological knowledge paired with his extremely skilled hand to hand combat and firearms competency places him as a force to be reckoned with.
Jimmy Woo is woefully under represented in mainstream Marvel so I thought I’d give him some time in the spotlight. For his design though, I just went with a standard S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform with some alterations. Jimmy is a spy so I kept things simple!
Hey guys! So remember that thing I did with Young Justice/Teen Titans a while back? I’m going to be doing the same thing in rebooting/redesigning my own line-up of the Avengers! There will be 10 of these guys just like last time! And here’s number one! I hope you guys enjoy it!
Here to start the fun, is number one.
Thor as “Donna Blake” as Thor
Thor is the daughter of Odin of Norse mythos and is the Goddess of Thunder. She was banished to Midgard (Earth) after she demonstrated brash and arrogant behavior in front of her father as a lesson in humility and her hammer, Mjolnir, was hidden somewhere on Earth. On Earth, she meets Jane Foster, an astrophysicist, who witnesses Thor’s celestial entrance into Midgard. With the help of Jane, Thor is able adopt a human persona, Donna Blake, and accompanies Jane on her scientific expeditions and research. During this time, despite not having her hammer, she is able to retain her super strength and served as a bodyguard for Jane. However, one adventure ended up with the pair discovering Mjolnir and Thor was once again reunited with her trusty weapon, and capable of donning her old Goddess armor. Eventually her actions attract the attention of Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Nick Fury and Thor is recruited to an elite force of superheroes and extraordinary beings, the Avengers.
I totally dig new Thor’s look in the comics but I didn’t dig the boob plate and tummy window as much, so I combined her costume with Ultimate Thor’s costume and ended up with this! For her backstory, I drew more from the cinematic universe because I felt the original backstory was a little weird to be honest.
And a little drawing before bed. Yesterday I literally spent hours talking about Pokemon with my friend Kyle so I decided to draw him as a trainer and his Dragonair and his Eevee (baby Vaporeon)!
Hope you like it thalassophilouswitch!

Can’t you see? Scarlet Witch is number three.
Wanda Maximoff as “Scarlet Witch”
Wanda Maximoff and her twin brother were born and raised by their single mother in Washington DC. All seemed normal until they hit their teenage years and began displaying their mutant powers. Wanda was gifted in reality and probability manipulating mutant powers. As soon as their powers developed, their father, Magneto, kidnapped them from their suburban DC home and he began brainwashing them and inducting the twins into his Brotherhood of Mutants. Her twin brother was more susceptible to their father’s teachings and when it came time that Wanda made her escape, her brother refused to go with her. She eventually made it to Xavier’s School where she learned her reality bending powers weren’t her only gift. A secondary mutation presented itself in a form of a mutant gift for adapting to sorcery and magic. She fought with the X-men for a time under the name “Scarlet Witch” until the X-men disbanded after Xavier’s death. She then set off to train under mystics and mages around the world, and eventually obtained the title of Sorceress Supreme and is the magical protector of Earth. In this time, she fought evil and crime and perfected her magical abilities. On her journey she became pregnant by an unknown father with her child, Billy Maximoff, who has recently developed his own mutant powers. Due to her mutant powers and magical prowess, she was one of the first candidates to be chosen for Nick Fury’s Avengers team. She joined the team only after she ensured that her son would be taken care of at the new Xavier’s Institute headed by Emma Frost and Scott Summers.
I’ve always loved Scarlet Witch’s look and character so not much to change here except that I gave her the title of Sorceress Supreme. Mainly because she would be an awesome one and also because I really don’t like Dr. Strange. Haha. Thoughts?

Number five is totally alive.
Jennifer “Jenni” Takeda as “Hazmat”
Jennifer “Jenni” Takeda was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. All seemed well until her family and pet started to become ill when she reached her teenage years. After visits to the doctor, it was revealed their illness was actually radiation poisoning that was somehow being emitted from Jenni’s body. She was brought into a containment lab to be examined where they discovered Jenni was a mutant who had the ability to emit various kinds of radiation but needed to be contained in an isolation chamber as she was constantly emitting radiation. While in the chamber, she was kidnapped by Norman Osborne who accelerated her growth to amplify her powers in hopes of utilizing her as a weapon. After Norman Osborne was defeated by various superheroes, she was released and placed in Xavier’s Institute where Forge was able to construct a durable containment suit, capable of providing her a durable exosuit that could emit controlled blasts of radiation. Jenni grew angry and frustrated with her condition but found a mentor in fellow X-Man, Rogue, who suffered a similar predicament. Jenni was later recruited to the Avengers Academy, headed by Janet van Dyne aka Wasp and James Rhodes aka War Machine. From here she was able to train and has recently become an Avenger. She and Miles Morales aka Spider-Man make up the “rookies” of the current line up of the Avengers.
Hazmat is awesome. I love her powers and character from when I read Avengers Academy. I decided to just make her a mutant because I wanted her and Rogue to bond as they share a similar problem of not being able to touch anyone. I didn’t make too many changes to her design since her suit was nice and simple, I did try to make it look sturdier though.
So remember that thing I did with Young Justice/Teen Titans a while back? I’m going to be doing the same thing in rebooting/redesigning my own line-up of the Avengers! There will be 10 of these guys just like last time! And here’s number six! I hope you guys enjoy it!
Number six comes to get his fix.
Luke Cage as Himself
Luke Cage grew up in Harlem, NY, and has always had a heart of gold. Since he was a child he was always up to protect those who needed him and to go out of his way to help others. After graduating high school, he pursued a career in law enforcement and eventually became a detective. It was in the police force did he become close friends with Shang-Chi aka Iron Fist, his partner in the force. Shang-Chi and Luke spent many years working as partners cracking down on crime in NYC until one case led both of them to an isolated warehouse where H.Y.D.R.A. had used as a lab to investigate using a machine to activate possible dormant “X-genes” in non-mutants. After a scuffle with Shang and Luke, a H.Y.D.R.A. scientist out of desperation destroyed his machine and fled the scene. The resulting destruction caused the machine to unleash a wave of unknown radiation which activated a dormant mutant gene in both Luke and Shang-Chi. For Luke, he found he was developing super strength. In addition to this, his skin became as resilient and resistant as titanium, allowing him to withstand extreme temperatures, increase his durability, and render him basically bulletproof. Using their new powers, Shang-Chi and Luke began moonlighting as superheroes, with Luke using the codename “Power Man”. This eventually caught the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and both Luke and Shang were recruited to be superheroes on the Avengers team.
I fucking love Luke Cage. And I loved his bromance with Iron Fist so I kept that there in his backstory. For his costume, Luke has always been casual when it came to combat gear so I decided to go a different direction and went for a more S.H.I.E.L.D./X-Men inspired look.
Iron Fist and Luke Cage
I realized I haven’t posted my official redesign of Iron Fist on here so I’ll just tell you that my version of Iron Fist is Shang-Chi.
So remember that thing I did with Young Justice/Teen Titans a while back? I’m going to be doing the same thing in rebooting/redesigning my own line-up of the Avengers! There will be 10 of these guys just like last time! And here’s number seven! I hope you guys enjoy it!
Number seven is a gift from heaven.
7/10:Monica Rambeau as “Pulsar”
Monica Rambeau was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. She excelled in school and eventually joined the New Orleans Harbor Patrol where she obtained the rank of lieutenant. However, one day while on patrol, a rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist was experimenting with extradimensional energy out at sea. When she went to investigate she ended up being bombarded by strange energies which led to the development of her superpowers. From these engergies, Monica was able to transform her body or generate any form of energy within the electromagnetic spectrum. With this she is able to blast bursts of light or electricity from her hands and eyes. She is capable of traveling at high speeds via flight or running and can manipulate the energy around her or in her to become invisible or intangible. With such great power she began to operate as a superhero under the alias of “Photon”. Eventually her actions caught the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and Monica, now going by “Pulsar”, joined the elite group called the Avengers. Due to her intelligence and natural leadership skills, she is co-leader of the team.
I first encountered Monica Rambeau in the Nextwave comics and immediately loved her. It’s a shame she isnt used as much in the Avengers line despite her powerset and the fact that she was the leader of the Avengers on multiple occasions. Because of this I thought it was high time she got back to leading again. For her costume, I decided to combine her current/old costume with her Nextwave outfit.
