At Long Last, Spoken Dialog

im41heartyhandclasp

So... what, precisely, do they really hope is... going to be all right? My guesses:
  • The flight's beverage selection
  • That goatee Tony keeps talking about growing
  • The Stark Industries Theater Club production of "The Fantasticks"
  • That new Waffle House they just built where that graveyard used to be
  • The Wichita Chamber of Commerce's reaction to Tony's proposed Downtown Revitalization Project (i.e. legalized dogfighting, run by prostitutes)
  • Marianne's insistence on wearing undergarments
  • This week's episode of "Here's Lucy."

...Tony's plan to keep Iron Man locked in the plane's bathroom during their entire flight?

... The atom-powered device that causes Tony's pen to turn red-hot when he stops using it for even an instant?

... The massive amount of (well-groomed) hair that has sprouted on Tony's knuckles?

I suddenly realized that you're doing a version of the Slow Roll:

It's hilarious. I only wish more of my friends read comics so that they could appreciate your jokes.

Aren't they dreamy together?

And by dreamy, I mean I'm about to fall asleep.

Isaac: You just gave me an idea for a new superhero origin. stabbed by Tony Stark's atomic fountain pen.

Darknessatnoon: Wow, I guess I am! Because I do intend to blog every single panel of this comic book and not skip any panels like I did with the Gravity Girl story.

Jon: Don't fret... the action is about to begin! Of course, it's spastic, over-dialogued, completely inane action, but still--!

Superhero, no, supervillain origin!

Mild-mannered airport clerk Toby Thomas only wanted to get the snobby billonaire to sign his customs form. But Tony Stark would not have it, and flinged his pen at the young man.

Hurtling through the air, and unbeknownst to the crowd, the pen's inner atomic power plant began to throb, turning the writing instrument red.

Toby tried to dodged it, but he was to slow, and the pen's tip lodged itself between his eyes. Now, powered by the pen, Toby can spurt mentally-commanded streams irradiated ink.

He is... The Human Fountain Pen, and he will not rest until Tony Stark gets what he deserves: doodles on his face.

It looked like Marianne was just reaching for the pen in order to do her Sudoku puzzle, but tonight misunderstood and pinned her hand beneath his meaty paw. That sort of looks like he's squeezing her hand a bit hard. "Don't you be messin' with my pen!"

Bill S. said...

tonight = Tony. I evidently seriously need to go to sleep.

Dave said...

ten...

god...

damned...

panels...

of two goobers THINKING at each other, followed by an exchange of platitudes and Tony displaying 'leet thumb-wrestling skillz. Arrgh! What *is* this, MARY WORTH?

The dramatic reading, BTW, turned out very nicely. Studio mishaps are your best comedy value!

Blockade Boy said...

MaGnUs: That works even better! Plus he could team up with the Living Eraser.

Bill S.: Yeah, Tony's always cranky before his first whiskey sour.

Dave: Thanks! I guess I'll put off firing Tusker for another week.

MaGnUs said...

Please BB, design the Human Fountain Pen!

Say, speaking of designs, how do you like my new icon?

Blockade Boy said...

Weight Wizard called... he wants his head back! ...Kidding. It's pretty sweet, actually. If I looked like that, I'd go around talking like Slasher all day long!

MaGnUs said...

Gah, not Weight Wizard! Tis my mad scientist getup, I must use my eyes!

Blockade Boy said...

That was going to be my second guess. I trust you're wearing a green jumpsuit with giant black polka dots on it?

MaGnUs said...

Uuuh... no... a badass biker leather jacket.
