I’ll say this much about Sam Wilson being the new Captain America, he’s not my first pick. Not because he’s black or any of that bullshit, but rather because his fighting style is way different. Switching from wings to a shield is a pretty big switch. Besides, who’s gonna be the new Falcon? Bear in mind, I don’t know the context of the change. Just my two cents. ‘Course, I also can’t think of anyone else who could do it. Tough niche to fill.
You think he’s switching from wings to the shield? Oh no. He’s using the shield AND his wings. He’s keeping the wings. He’s that good.
XD I am now imagining horrible ‘American Eagle’ puns which will make Sam scream. "I WAS. A. FAL - CON. YOU ASSES."
I was doing some research for a drawing and playing around with some Thor screencaps to see the Jotunheim sets a bit better (Is that weird? Am I the only one who does that? Damn the movie for being so dark anyway.) And I have to say, there’s some really sweet architectural details hidden in all that gloom. I just might have to hunt down some properly lighted HD caps to see it even better. Or are there actually any good pictures of the sets around?
Crossover between the Marvel version (armor and stuff) and norse mythology were Laufey is actually a giantess
The thing is. They probably only changed Laufey’s sex (and gender?), cause the Thor story started back in the 60s or something. In the myths it was pretty damn interesting that Loki was almost the only one who was referred to by his matronym “Laufeyson”, instead of a partonym like all other main gods (e.g. Thor Odinson).
It had to be important to point out that he was his mother’s son, or they would have called him Farbautisson. So Laufey was the more important parent in Loki’s story. So of course they had to turn her into a man, they couldn’t have the mother be more important than the father.
It’s just… look at this picture above. You can’t tell me that having a cold and merciless Frost Giant Queen as Odin’s big enemy wouldn’t have been more interesting.
Also, it’s so weird that a male character is called “Laufey” when it’s a feminine name still used by many women even today.
Maybe some next reboot (parallel universe) in the comics will show a world where Laufey is really Laufey instead of Farbauti with his wife’s name.
