marvel night

Imagine Tom tying you to the corners of your four-poster bed. Just being in this position arouses you - you’ve spent many nights just like this, giving yourself over to his every whim. Tonight, though, he just stands at the foot of the bed, staring at your body. He takes his time telling you everything he wants to do to you, describing every dirty detail until you’re squirming with desire. He wants to hear you beg.

For what reason do you think that the Soviet member of Battle Fever is called "Battle Kozak" instead of "Battle Soviet"? Also, you opinion about the series.

Ok, it’s time to talk about Battle Fever J once again! Yay!

I have talked about how weird it is that Battle Cossack in called Battle Cossack before but this is an angle I’ve never talked about.

Let’s start with the names of the rest of the team; Battle Japan, Battle France, Battle Kenya and Miss America. All of them are named after countries. Yes, I know that technically it’s the United States of America but everyone knows when a person says they are American, they mean the USA and not the general area taking up space between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

However, Battle Cossack is not named after a country but an ethnic group.  Why is that?  Well, I think there may be several reasons.  The first is the time in which the show was produced and originally aired. Japan was (and still is) an American ally and the Cold War was very much a thing at the time with countries either align with the US, the Soviets or trying to remain neutral. Japan as also involved in a dispute with the Soviet Union over the ownership of several islands to the North of Hokkaido (it still is today with the modern Russian Federation) called the Kurils.

So, having a hero trained in the Soviet Union was pretty daring but it was one of the two massive world powers at the time so ignoring it would have been strange. That said, Soviet doesn’t really name a country, it’s a form of government. A Soviet is an elected local, district, or national council which is where the country got its name, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Yes, it can also be used to refer to a person from the Soviet Union but it is not a country name in and of itself. It also wouldn’t work for him to be called Battle Soviet Union because it breaks the one word country descriptor the others have.

Also, the Soviet Union wasn’t just one country.  It was a block of countries united under the authority of a central government in Moscow but all with their own cultural, historical and national identities. The USSR was a bit like a much more aggressive and domineering version of the modern European Union with a shared economic system and rules for government and membership. This is one of the reasons it so easily fragmented back into separate countries after the fall of Communism in the late 1980s/early 1990s. 

So why Cossack?

The answer, I believe, has to do with the reason the series was called Battle FEVER. Originally, it was supposed to be a Japanese version of the Avengers, to follow in the success of their version of Spider-Man.

However, as the series was written, it was tied less and less into the Marvel series and became a team of specialists from around the world. The original name of the main character was going to be Captain Japan, an analogue to Captain America but that was changed to Battle and the series was going to be named for him as Battle Japan.  However, something happened as the series was being created that changed the entire direction of the idea, DISCO!

Well, more specifically the amazing international success of the movie Saturday Night Fever.

Yes, this is where the Fever in Battle Fever J comes from. It is also where the secondary theme of the series comes in, dance.  Each of the heroes has a different style of dance with Miss American being Disco in tribute to the movie and the origins of the dance style.  When it came to the Soviet Hero, well, there really is only once choice there, the Cossack dance!

So there you go, a long and probably too detailed explanation of why I think Battle Cossack is named as he is.

As for what I think of the series itself?  Well, I like it!  It’s really goofy and has some of the silliest monsters and villains plots ever but it never loses a sense of fun or takes itself too seriously.  It was also a good bridge between the Sentai series before it and the genre as we know it today that would be completely formed in the 1980s.

Thanks for the question!

It’s gotten to the point in the Marvel/MCU fandom where I don’t even know what is entirely fanon and what has a basis in the movies/comics

has Thor ever eaten a pop tart?? did Steve really have his last rites done twice before he got the serum?? is Coulson really Clint and Natasha’s handler?? Does SHIELD even have a position called “handler”?? Did Bucky and Steve share an apartment before the war?? Did Bucky work “at the docks” while they shared an apartment?? Has Nick Fury ever said “motherfucker”?? did Steve have a job with the WPA?? does Coulson like SuperNanny?? Were ‘Bucky Bears’ ever a thing?? 

I don’t even know anymore

Imagine spending an entire night talking to Tom. You were anticipating a more active evening, but once the two of you started talking, it just didn’t stop. You told him about your childhood, your dreams, and past relationships that were never meant to work out. He told you things he’s never told anyone - his darkest fears and deepest insecurities. Just as the sun was rising, you were sharing your visions of your ideal futures, which happened to share many similarities.

my ships include:

• person A and B are polar opposites like fire and water/sun and moon/ black and white

• enemies turned into friends turned into lovers

• person A looks like a cinnamon roll but is a badass and person B looks badass but is a cinnamon roll

• person A and B are perfect for each other, beautifully developed, but ends up with other person

• basically non-canon ones

Imagine going on vacation with Tom and his family. You’ve hardly had any time alone together since arriving, and you’re just starving for some one-on-one attention. Before breakfast, you tease him with a little nibble on his ear as your hand slides into his pajama bottoms. He’s hesitant at first - his family is in the next room, after all. It just takes a few more strokes to convince him that he needs you as much as you need him. He just makes you promise to be as quiet as possible so no one finds out.
