Sometimes, the Internet is truly magical.

That goes without saying most of the time, but I still like to get the occasional reminder, and that's exactly what happened when we got a look at a piece of art that originally appeared on the forums at There's a thread there called "Say a thing and a guy will draw it," where--as the title implies--forum posters make suggestions that, no matter how outlandish are then filled by artist. And that's how we ended up with Julian Ferguson's brain-bendingly awesome interpretation of... Moé-DOK!

For those of you who aren't familiar with it, Moé, from the Japanese word for "to bud or sprout," is a term used in anime and manga fandom to describe something that is extremely precious or cute, and, well, this certainly qualifies. And now that I've seen it, I want this thing to be fighting Captain America yesterday.
