    Oh, it certainly sounded like she did know and she was trying to be kind about it. Hence J. August Richards yelling "Friend Zone!" with such glee.

    What if Stan Lee's character from The Avengers is the same guy from "T.R.A.C.K.S."? And maybe Iron Man 3?

    Oh it's all the same guy. He keeps getting fired from all of his jobs.

    He doesn't need a job, he just works for fun and switches jobs whenever he gets bored ever since he won his lawsuit from the tainted drink he had (in The Incredible Hulk). Before that, he spent years as a Hugh Hefner/Larry King impersonator (as seen in Iron Man 1 & 2). He also might have been a hot dog vendor (X-Men), a security guard (Hulk) and a school librarian (Amazing Spider-Man), but those three may actually be the alternate reality version of the guy, from Earth-1610. :rommie: There are also rumors that the character went into witness protection and used the identity of "Willie Lumpkin" for awhile and worked for the United States Postal service, but that has never been confirmed.

    ^ There was also that snafu with Kang the Conqueror, after which he spent time in 1943 as an Army General.

    Ooh, what if he's a Watcher or something?

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    I'm thinking it's not the same guy.

    Clone army.

    Probably the Time Variance Authority.

    There's an interesting question. Should the TVA consist of all clones of MarK Gruenwald, or of Stan Lee?

    Anyway, we need to consider that the guy showing up in all these movies really is Willie Lumpkin. He's posing as Stan Lee so he can infiltrate Marvel and seize ultimate power. He never was the same after The Fantastic Four Roast, you know.

    She could have been basing it on the final. Who knows, we'll have to see.

    If they made Stan Lee the Watcher (or at least his human disguise) that would be awesome.

    ^I just finished reading Marvel 1602 and all I can picture now is the sequence where Strange can't understand Uatu's chronobabble. "Please, the terms you're using, they make no sense. They're just words.
    "I promise you, I am a true believer no matter what lies James has told. And how does 'Excelsior' fit into all this?"

    I'm guessing that they have not started filming the new season yet. So she doesn't know how it will play out going forward.

    I really don't know though, that's just an assumption on my part.

    I think Stan's proper title is The Man, so whenever somebody says something like "working for The Man" he's their boss. That's how he can be everywhere and run everything. :techman:

    I was going back over some stuff. I noticed that in "Ragtag" Fitz almost killed Garrett by shorting out his cybernetics with an EMP. That got me wondering. Do Stark's Iron Man suits have any protection against EMPs?

    The climax of The Avengers would suggest not, since the suit was knocked out by the nuclear explosion. Except that EMPs are caused by nukes going off in atmosphere, not in outer space, so that shouldn't have happened. Basically, EMPs in fiction work nothing like they do in real life.

    ^I just thought Ironman used all his energy to push the missile into the wormhole.

    That was supposed to be an EMP? I'd assumed he just expended all power getting there. Pretty sure there's a line in there somewhere about saving the last of it for the turn after he grabs the nuke.

    Actually, now that I think about it I'm sure it wasn't supposed to be an EMP because the suit blacks out while he's still holding the thing and he's already falling back when it hits.
