revenge of the giant robot


Recently I realized Adventure Time gave two secondary, but important, characters a chance for redemption. They have in common that they used to be complete jerks with anyone, being possesive and cheater among other things. But past season and on Islands we could see they were nice persons. I’m talking about Magic Man and Martin Mertens.


Since his first appearance on S1 Freak City, Magic Man made impossible Finn, Jake and pretty much every Ooo inhabitant’s life. No matter if he tricked them, morphed them into a giant foot or made them going into a weird inner world made of themselves, Magic Man was a jerk guy who had a horrible backstory involving a broken heart, a cosmic deity and the ruin of a super civilization on Mars.

But on Season 7′s Normal Man, a powerless Magic Man, because his powers were transfered to Betty Grof, showed his true nature before going nuts. He wanted to rescue his brother, floating in Earth’s orbit. He also showed Finn, Jake and Tiny Manticore he wasn’t a bad guy and he changed. And back on Mars he did the same with Martians, who were wandering in the ruins of their civilization.


Martin Mertens had less time on AT, being on only four episodes on Season 6 and two on Islands. He didn’t care about Finn when his son went to the Cosmic Prison to rescue him. The consequence? His son loses an arm. That selfish scoundrel manipulated tiny farmers to repair his ship, or a colony of Furbys (?) that rescued him from being a prisoner in a planet so he could escape from that planet, without the food he promised he was going to give them.

Despite not being in the material world, going with the Purple Comet into another plane of existance, on Islands we could see his backstory. A descendent of human survivors who was a trickster who helped Hiders to leave Founders that loved gadgets, but also a Helper named Minnie. He loved Finn more than gadgets, and saved him from a revenge or a giant robot on the sea. Something that is very noble.

With this examples I say Adventure Time also shows that there is chance for people to change. Or to know they were good and why they broke bad. Magic Man and Martin share a tragic past that broke them for long, but they had their redemption time. Or not, but we could see what they were like before.

A Friendly Reminder...

That the Sergeant at the Smile Away Reformatory School in that one episode of Phineas and Ferb was voiced by the same person as Silas from TFP.

What if that dream wasn’t really a dream at all, but a memory that OWCA erased sloppily?? And what if that sergeant wasn’t a sergeant, but a colonel by the name of Leland Bishop???? And then when this happened….

…he reformed his own life into one geared toward revenge; revenge on that terrible platypus and its owners who humiliated him so! And first he was trying to one-up their inventive ways with the invention of a crazy satellite weapon thing, but the military shut it down and kicked him out. But not before he caught wind of the rumors of sentient robots working with the government, and what better way to get revenge for this moment than to get a giant robot thing of his own to fight them in!? 

Guys. This is a thing now. Phineas and Ferb are part of the Transformers universe.

stony prompt: tony is injured in battle, steve motherhens

Man, I am bad at staying below 500 words lol

“Alright, just a few more steps-”

“Steve, I know where the couch is.’

“Right,” Steve said sheepishly, hand still hovering over Tony’s shoulder as Tony sat down on the couch, laying his crutch on the ground beside him and lifting his leg on to the couch and arranging the cast on the pillows there. “I knew that.”

I love the idea of Fidds being the cute mom friend to Ford in college always making him lots of southern food to fill him up (he doesn’t eat enough and he’s too skinny says the ninety pound nerd who only drinks coffee most of the day) and cleaning up those books that may one day kill them both in their sleep.

But also being like a mad scientist always making crazy machines that blow up, entering illegal under ground robot competitions and Ford has to bail him out of jail again, convincing Ford to help him get back at the bullies and they both get arrested making another shame bot. Though to be fair, Fidds’s nerdy idea of revenge is usually let’s build a giant robot and put their car on the roof! And Ford is a dorky enough to think that’s brilliant and then it back fires when the robot malfunctions and goes on another rampage….

He’s a nice combination of cute and sensible but wild and free. A perfect gentleman on the outside and a mad scientist on the inside.

He and Ford truly were made for each other and you can’t tell me otherwise.
