Snark Free Corner for 7/17

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

SNARK FREE CHALLENGE

If Marvel decided to only have ONE X-Men title, which seven characters do you think should be on the team?

SNARK FREE THEME DAY

Today's theme is "Goin' to the Chapel, Gonna Get...ATTACKED?!?"

Marriage is, generally speaking, a bit too boring for most comic books.

Therefore, they often are interrupted.

Cases in points...

1. Reed Richards and Sue Storm's wedding, where every major villain tussled with every major hero, but only caused a minor delay.

2. Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym's wedding, which is interrupted by the Circus of Crime (and, well, also by the fact that Hank was kinda crazy at the time)!

3. Bruce Banner and Betty Ross' wedding, which is interrupted by her father SHOOTING Bruce!

4. Barry Allen and Iris West's wedding, which is interrupted by Professor Zoom impersonating Barry!

5. Barry Allen and Fiona Webb's wedding, which is again interrupted by Professor Zoom attempting to kill the bride, but Barry stops him in time, but in doing so, kills Zoom (and goes on trial for manslaughter).

6. Wally West and Linda Park's first wedding, which is interrupted by Abra Kadabra, who kidnaps Linda and then casts a spell making everyone forget Linda ever existed!

7. Dick Grayson and Koriand'r's wedding, which is interrupted by an evil Raven showing up and killing the minister.

Feel free to share more interrupted weddings!!

Note that all but the last wedding DID eventually occur!

COVER HOMAGE

What cover is this Transformers: Beast Wars cover homaging?

REALLY COOL SCENE

I mentioned last week that Suicide Squad had so many other cool scenes, so I figured, what the heck, I'll mention another one of them right away!

This is also one of Ostrander's favorite scenes from the series, so you KNOW it's good!

The liaison between the Suicide Squad and the government was a man named Derek Tolliver. He decided to use the secret info of the Squad as a bargaining chip to help get a Senator Joe Cray elected President.

Amanda Waller figured out a way to keep Tolliver from doing this, but before she could implement her plan, her field leader, Rick Flag, went AWOL, determined to kill Tolliver and Cray himself before they could expose the Squad.

Waller quickly sent the Squad after Flag, commanding them to not let Flag kill Cray!

Flag managed to kill Tolliver, and then cornered Cray at the Lincoln Memorial. As Cray tried to bargain for his life, shots rang out. There, on sitting on the Lincoln Memorial, was Deadshot!

There was a tense showdown for a moment, until Deadshot made his decision. He decided to follow Waller's order to the tee - he wouldn't let Flag kill Cray, so HE killed Cray!

The police showed up, and put a bunch of bullets into Deadshot (but as we know by now, it's a lot harder than that to kill Deadshot!).

What an awesome scene.

Ostrander rules.
