LUKE DAVIS asks: What was Vastra and Jenny’s wedding like?
Victorian society reeled. Arthur Conan Doyle declined to attend but sent a hamper, George Bernard Shaw contemplated a new play, and a horse fainted. The Doctor enjoyed himself so much, he came four times, so wreaking havoc with the seating plan. A stern young woman from The Temperance League, attempted to disrupt the happy occasion, declaring it to be immoral, and got put in a headlock by Jenny. Surprisingly, Vastra was much more diplomatic about the interruption and just invited the young lady to dinner.
Fortunately, a video exists of the wedding, although the happy couple’s kiss has been edited from some copies, without the permission of the video makers. Vastra has made a list of the people responsible along with some suitable condiments.
While the first offering of this Generations weekly mini
left me somewhat wanting it is interesting to see how explicit Marvel is trying
to be with the emotional logics of these one shots against whatever timey wimey
wibbly wobbly cosmic cube powered stuff that Secret Empire inevitably creates for this series to happen.
On a certain level, I really respect this honesty, I’ve
always been baffled by a sect of comic fandoms desire for storytelling to
justify aesthetic over the character. At the same time ‘The Strongest’ didn’t
leave me with any sort of profound new knowledge of Amadeus Cho or Banner.
Cho’s realization that the Hulk is a “curse” seems like the wrong take away for
a Legacy character. Two of the best recent legacy characters in Marvel (Kamala
Khan, Laura Kinney in the role of Wolverine, Kate Bishop) have taken those
symbols and shown what they mean for them. The next generation should not be
bound by the limitations of their forebears. Maybe the Hulk was a curse for
Banner, and on a certain level it can be viewed that way, but that doesn’t have to be what it is for Cho.
How much time has passed from when Ramiel fell to the moment Gabriel met Daniel?
A couple thousand years. (Angels aren’t too big on tracking time. Also, time to them is different compared to time for humans. It also passes differently in different planes of existence, and… I’m just gonna go with the whole Doctor Who “It’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey-wimey…stuff”
No! A TARDIS! T-A-R-D-I-S. Time and relative dimensions in space.
Oh. Time, how do you interpret time?
Well, I don't want to confuse you.
I know more than you so you can't confuse me.
Alright. *Takes a deep breath* People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but really from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey, stuff...
And you've lost me.
As predicted. It's just a big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey, stuff...
Stop being like the Doctor and SPEAK ENGLISH.
