    Right here buddy.
    But I'm sure if the roles were reversed and it was a male Asgardian who mind controlled a female James Bond like character making her have sex with him, the episode would have a different tone, especially if her male teammate hits her for admitting she settling for him after everything she went through.

    I also like to add, I feel really sorry for Ward's penis. Asgardians are dense enough to take a hit from the Hulk. Unless Lorelei gave Ward a spell to make him stone hard, he shouldn't have much left of his manhood.

    Depends on how hard you "flick." Keep in mind that the Sun is already moving through space at nearly half a million miles per hour as it orbits the center of the galaxy, and it has no trouble holding the planets in orbit around it as it does so. Some physicists and writers have proposed methods for using controlled flares or Shkadov thrusters to turn stars into giant rocket engines that pull their planetary systems (or Ringworlds) with them.

    And of course, the Sun isn't a soccer ball, it's a big dense cloud of hydrogen gas. Any force that could accelerate it to enough speed that it wouldn't have time to pull the planets with it would probably blow the Sun apart in the process.

    Loki took over a couple people, including Banner.

    According to this, we should be more worried about Thor dropping his hammer.

    But Loki didn't rape anyone or Banner, thankfully.

    The question is, is mindrape/possession more traumatizing than sexrape?

    Then of course, after you've been mindraped, would you be more worried about all the people you were forced to murder, or all the people you were forced to frakk?

    Would you rather wake up clueless covered in someone's blood, or covered in their sperm?

    Depends. Do you want to spend the rest of your life in jail, or just with a bad taste in your mouth.

    The only thing I can't figure out is, which would be the most awsome.

    It's nice that they're putting more and more comic book characters in the show.

    I like the way he thinks:

    He's clearly excited to be on the show.

    And I guess they're decoupling World War 2 from the backstory of the CinemaVerse edition of Eric Koenig...?

    They already did that with Nick Fury, so it's not surprising.

    Is this what people were talking about with a possible Clairvoyant?

    Yeah, and now that I think about it, was that from the show itself, or was it from a commercial that aired during the Marvel special?

    Regardless, it's pretty obvious now: Patrick Stewart is the clairvoyant!

    The Clairvoyant has to be M.O.D.O.K., right?

    Yeah, I think Patton Oswald as "Eric Koenig" is going to be more a matter of just giving a popular guest star a name from the comics and calling it good.:lol:

    Wikipedia says we're getting 3 straight episodes with no breaks:
    April 1 - End Of The Beginning
    April 8 - Turn, Turn, Turn
    April 15 - Providence

    It also says that the season will end on May 13. That would be seven straight new episodes without a break!! Should I get my hopes up? Anyone know how reliable that May 13 season finale information is?
