eleven years, but I never thought it looked obvious on the show. Now, Buddy and Laura would have been creepy.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

This is mostly because back then woman over 25 were unsightly and women over 30 need to be locked away from the impressionable public.

In 1961 when the Dick VanDyke Show started, Dick was 36 and Mary was 25, which is not an accurate indicator of how old their characters where.

They were both adults, unless Mary's character had a 16 year old son, that should have been fine.

(Back to Hulk comics.)

Betty was probably 20-something since she wasn't in school, but even if she was 20 something, she should have been finishing off college, so why would Bruce go after a woman that didn't go to college, dropped out of college or maybe even dropped out of Hiighschool?

Dropping out usually means that the drop outter is having more fun than studying and thus far more experienced than Bruce, unless they're stupid... Or unless Thadeus decided that someone who was just going to be married off to make babies didn't need a college education and he wouldn't pay for one since it was a galactic waste of HIS money.

(Or she was a Genius who graduated college at 12?)

My point being is that Bruce (if Peter David is right about the Gray Hulk.) was looking for a sexual and mental inferior to make himself feel better and less put upon by the emotionally stable around him subtly creating an atmosphere of hostility (in his mind.).

Meanwhile if Pete was right about the Green Hulk then Bruce was looking for some one who would not die and he would not kill, and more importantly someone who he could save how he could not save his mother, which unfortunately meant that he had to be more controlling than his father ever was, that he may have been subconsciously endangering the young woman, pushing her into situations that were stupidly risky just to save Betty Ross and chalk up some sort of mental victory in his head.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

One last aside, in the series Moore was much younger than Dyke and they got married when she was under age of consent. This was the plot of one of the episodes and it wasn't even considered controversial at the time.

As for Hulk, it seems to me that most of the Marvel nerdy guys married/dated much younger women, except for Peter Parker who liked them older.

Reed, Hank, and Bruce all had much younger significant others.

There were no women younger than Peter Parker Year One.

(Girls yes, women no.)

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm posting this here instead of the Guardians of the Galaxy thread because it's about blue Krees. It's also from the Marvel special preempting Agents of SHIELD this week. They've released some screenshots of Guardians of the Galaxy. Among them, a clear look at Ronan the Accuser that shows he is, in fact, blue. It's really hard to tell in the lighting, but I think he's a brighter blue. None of the screencaps have any context, but there's theoretically spoilers:

First look at Glenn Close, new look at Ronan the Accuser and the Collector

You shouldn't say Krees.

Kree is the plural of Kree.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Have you noticed that Americans (on TV) only say Legos?

They don't have a singular, and their plural is wrong.

Silly, silly Americans.

I debated that, but didn't know a clear answer so I just went with it. I suppose I could also have been talking about the people generally, in which case it would be singular (or, more accurately, adjectival). But not a huge deal either way.

Actually, on reflection, my post was almost completely superfluous because Lady Sif settled the issue of whether there are blue Kree in this universe in spite of Korath the Pursuer, so it isn't even an open question.

Yes, and your screen name is an Uhura quote from Search for Spock.

Now if you had tried to make a cricket joke, that would have been hard to follow.

Look's like they're mostly behind the scenes shots, so on film he may not end up being quite so bright a shade of blue as he appears. Not that it matters either way since, as has been noted there are several Kree ethnic groups and I imagine there's as many shades of blue in their genome as we have shades of pinky brown.

I prefer the Peter David explanation for the Green Hulk... 9 year old Banner watched his father murder his mother and felt guilty that he couldn't stop the crime unfolding.

I think the Grey Hulk was about girls at college laughing at his pitiful sexual technique.
A bit more than that, Grey Hulk was:
Mr. Fixit came from a place even scarier, personifying Banner’s ego, his greed, his primal desires for food and sex and conquest. As Banner’s Gamma mutation continued to evolve, nighttransformation (again, part of the original Hulk) brought out the nerdy loner’s dark opposite to inflict mayhem on anyone or anything that got in his way.

Which would explain why a guy in his 30s was dating a 16 year old virgin in Hulk #1 1962.
Which is a whole lot less sketchy compared to a 2,000 year old genie in love with a guy in this 30's in I Dream of Jeannie starting in 1965.

Cricket jokes can be sticky wickets.
