At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel revealed its upcoming cartoon, “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.“ I heard that name today and groaned. Really? For reals. Okay then.
The thing is, though, I kinda like when Marvel plays around with its continuity like this! I. Love. Puns. If it makes me groan, it makes me grin. So in the spirit of invention and wordplay, I’m composing some teams of my own based on some of my Marvel favorites:
“Wolverine: Agents of B.U.B.” B.U.B. = Bestial Underground Battalion. They take down the big monsters the other heroes can’t, before the public at large even knows about the threat. Team members would include bestial folk such as Wolverine, a “reformed” Sabretooth, Wolfsbane, and… Beast? Open to suggestions here.
“Deadpool: Agents of P.Y.E.W.” That’s “Puissant Yammering Extralegal Wetworks”. Deadpool is the only member. Maybe Fantomex (ha!). I dunno, maybe throw in Domino or Mystique or something – I guess Deadpool does enough yammering for the lot.
“Gambit: Agents of Mon.C.H.E.R.” Nick Fury puts Remy LeBeau in charge of an elite team – along with Forge, Doctor Strange, Nightcrawler, Luke Cage, and more – that Fury thinks would look better with an eyepatch. Fury has a sharp stick. The team elects Daredevil – twice. Fury calls them dicks and has another scotch. (Mon.C.H.E.R = Monocular Corps, Heuristic Entanglement Recon)
I could go on forever, but I got other stuff to do! Please submit your own and let’s keep this going.
