SHIELDRecap216

Welcome back to the ComicsAlliance post-show analysis for Agents of SHIELD, the spy show set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is where we break down each episode using our unique S.H.L.E.I.D. recap system — recapping the show, looking at highlights and lowlights, and exploring the show’s relationship to both the comics and the wider Marvel movie world.

This week, Skye hangs out in Inhumantown, Coulson and Hunter try to track Skye down (and only get as far as the cabin), and Agent Gonzalez tries to crack open Fury's little black box. Plus, the return of that one guy I'd honestly kinda totally forgotten existed. 'Afterlife' was directed by Kevin Hooks and written by Craig Titley.

question

Convention season is upon us once more, which means thousands of comic book fans will descend on the hotels and convention centers of North America (and the world) to be consumed wholesale by nerd nirvana.

And that means long, awkward questions from nervous and and overwhelmed fans.

The Movie Avengers Will Live Forever in This Singapore Condo (Or At Least Until They Redecorate)

AvengersCondo1

One of the harsh realities of life is that all things must end, even the current spate of Marvel Studios films. One day, the actors will move on (Robert Downey Jr. already has one foot out the door) and the movie Avengers roster of the early-to-mid 2010s will morph into something else.

But what if you didn't want them to? What if your fandom reached such great heights that you wished that the movie Avengers of today could be with you forever, and you could immortalize them in the walls, bookcases, kitchen cabinets and bed frames of your home Someone in Singapore apparently did just that, with the help of Absolook Interior Designs.
