Last Week in the Links: 11/11-11/17/2013

So Marvel picked the 50 Greatest Avengers of All Time (and I helped) (and I wrote entries too!). Before we get into that though, let us honor those that did not achieve immortal status (and the CBR Forum posters who were oh-so-disappointed in the choices we've all made).

And now, I give you a single-act play in pictures.

Open on the Also-Ran Avengers Clubhouse

"Umm...wellllll... gotta mosey!"

"Umm...wellllll... gotta mosey!"

In rushes Triathlon, right past the exiting Two-Gun Kid.

"Guys, guys, guys! They chose 50 Greatest Avengers and, and, and...we didn't make the list!" (image from comicvine.com)

Gilgamesh giggles endlessly to himself.

"....why is that funny? You're always doing that. I don't get it. What am I missing?"

"....why is that funny? You're always doing that. I don't get it. What am I missing?"

"So, who made the list?" (image from comicvine.com)

"I can make them out above us from here. Let's see...we've got... Stingray."

"I can make them out above us from here. Let's see...we've got... Stingray."

"...you must be joking!"

"...you must be joking!"

"Gilgamesh deems Stingray is awesome. Do not forgot this!"

"Gilgamesh deems Stingray is awesome. Do not forgot this!"

Gilgamesh busts into a hearty laugh once again.

"...Jack of Hearts, Mantis, Jarvis..."

"...Jack of Hearts, Mantis, Jarvis..."

"Wait, wait, wait! What, what, what?! The butler got chosen?!?!"

"Wait, wait, wait! What, what, what?! The butler got chosen?!?!"

"...why are you still running around like that.?"

"...why are you still running around like that.?"

"Jarvis is a good guy. He deserves to be up there...I guess."

"Jarvis is a good guy. He deserves to be up there...I guess."

"...Vision, Dr. Strange..."

"...Vision, Dr. Strange..."

"Dr. Strange made it?!? That ridiculous scalpel jockey?!?! Damn Stevens and his anti-psychiatry bias!!!!" (image from comicvine.com)

"Anyone not straight up there?"

"Anyone not straight up there?"

"Does Hercules count?"

"Does Hercules count?"

"Not really, no."

"Not really, no."

"...oh..."

"...oh..."

"...oh...oh...oh..."

"...oh...oh...oh..."

"... WHY ARE YOU STILL RUNNING LIKE THAT?!"

"... WHY ARE YOU STILL RUNNING LIKE THAT?!"

"Perhaps they just....forgot about diversity. You know, that happens sometimes. People...forget."

"Perhaps they just....forgot about diversity. You know, that happens sometimes. People...forget."

Peels of laughter.

"Seriously, man! Not! The! Time!"

"Seriously, man! Not! The! Time!"

"Guys, relax. I'm gay, yes, but that doesn't define me. The fact that I'm a bad ass master of electricity means that I should be up there. Also, I'm Latino and would it kill them to honor the rich Hispanic culture? Would it?! Anyway, Dr. Druid's right, Gilg...so not the right time."

Anyway, Dr. Druid's right, Gilg...so not the right time."

"Right...of course. My apologies--"

"Right...of course. My apologies--"

"...wow, he didn't do--"

"...wow, he didn't do--"

"--I guess I just...forgot myself."

"--I guess I just...forgot myself."

Groans throughout the room as Gilgamesh literally collapses in a fit of guffaws.

"...not cool."

"...not cool."

And... SCENE!

Check out who made the list with Part 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Look out for my work on Madame Web (formerly Spider Woman, always Julia Carpenter), Ant-Man (Scott Lang), U.S. Agent, and Captain America. And no, I don't know how Two-Gun Kid made the list. Gilgamesh was robbed.

But that wasn't all from me for Marvel.com last week. I also worked with The Blue Marvel in the Psych Ward to develop his teamwork skills. Blue Marvel, if you don't know, is a Superman-type who lived through the Civil Rights era in the U.S. but ages super slow. He's strong, fast, can fly, and has a giant smarts. He's now a headline player within the Mighty Avengers. You're going to want to check out that book and the Psych Ward I wrote. It'll be well-worth your time.

And yes, he also should've made the top 50 but he wasn't an official Avenger yet so...no dice.
