  1. I've bringing thinking about the Evan Peters thing. Like most other people, I figured he'd been zapped in from the X-MCU (it works in different ways). MCU Quicksilver was dead so whoever warped him had to poach from a nearby alternate reality. The big reveal (SPOLIER) is that he's just some goofy dude that was living there. I still think he's X-MCU Quicksilver though. Here's why -

    He laughed when he heard the name boner. If he had grown up with that name, he'd cringe when he heard someone say it. Even nice people would snort when being introduced to him. He's hate it. Instead, he laughs at it. No way his name is Boner.

    The writing on this series was fairly complex. Twists, turns, misdirections. It was obviously thoroughly discussed and plotted out. Having some random dude living in Westview just happen to look exactly like an alternate reality version of Wanda's brother doesn't make any sense. The Quicksilvers are the alternate versions of each other, not Ralph Boner. The meta analysis means there is a reason Evan Peters is playing him.

    The necklace seemed to me to be a a token of mind control. Of course it could have been doing whatever the writers say it was doing, I just had the impression it was just mind controlling him, not also giving him his powers.

    Speaking of powers, he used that super speed quite comfortably, like he's had it for years. There was no learning curve, he knew how to stop and turn at crazy speeds. 

    Agent Woo went to Westfield because he hadn't heard from someone in the witness protection program. Ralph Boner is exactly the kind of joke name that Peter Maximoff would make up as a bro joke. It's clearly a made up name. 

    So my new theory is that somehow the X-MCU Quicksilver got into the XMU before Wanda came to Westview. The US government had him in hiding. Cue Wandavision.

    I bet there is more Evan Peters in the MCU and they tell us how he got there. I hope it has something to do with Dr. Strange 2, which I am bummed is not coming out in a couple of months.

  2. That Xemnu is really cool but I just don't want all the figures in this wave. It was just one figure I didn't care it about, fine, I'd get the set. If it was a BAF I really wanted I'd tolerate 2 or maybe even 3 customizing fodder. Xemnu does look really good but I just want Red Skull, Deathstrike and Arcade. Doom looks like he's cross-dressing.

  3. I am really liking that Ultron. His ultimate characteristic for me has always been his face with that really creepy mouth. None of the many Ultrons to date have captured that, in my opinion. That Select one Jay posted last month was probably the best. This one looks great. There doesn’t appear to be a waist joint, which seems odd, but he looks really great so I will go with it. He’s a robot. He can be a little stiff. 

  4. Since I've moved to pretty much only buying figures online where I don't get to check them first, I am fine with the closed box cardboard packaging. I open everything so it's all just waste to me. If it makes the figures cheaper, great. I do see it being an issue for brick and motor though. The cardboard boxes don't have a lot of curb appeal. Somebody browsing an aisle who didn't see the ComicCon reveals probably isn't going to get excited about a box, even with a nice picture on the outside.
