#366 - Captain Marvel/Bron Char
Ace Air Force pilot Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, Marvel's Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With Toys Я Us extinct, Walgreens has gamely picked up the slack when it comes to movie Minimates. There will be a Captain Marvel box set later this year, but there are four exclusive two-packs at the drug store right now. This one, logically, features Captain Marvel! This shows her in her standard red-and-blue costume, though it has more tiny details here than it did in the comics. And also it's done in metallic shades, because flat colors don't work as well on film as they do on the printed page. Carol's got long hair, which must get snagged when her battle helmet armors up and turns it into a mohawk. (The set does include an alternate helmet/hair piece, if you want her to look like that, plus a flight swoosh so she can take to the skies! Surprisingly? No fist-energies.)
But Kristofer Hivju is Tormund Giantsbane!
(Not sure if I missed the joke.)
Absolutely you did! The joke is (*drumroll*) that I was wrong and am a dummy, and that you made the review better by pointing it out...
Maybe calling an ethnic name “ridiculous” isn’t... the best look tbh
To be fair, they make fun of Benedict Cumberbatch's name too. Equal opportunity and all that.
I'll have you know that Brimpleybick Cucumber is a perfectly normal name!
Baron's got a point, though, so I don't mind changing "ridiculous" (worthy of ridicule) to "outlandish" (wholly unusual)...
