Two friends, who work at a comic book store, with an obsession with all things Avengers and much love for comics and superheroes in general! We read more Marvel than anything else. One who loves Iron Man and the other who keeps trying to smush Clint and Coulson together. Hence Agent Hawk Iron!
scifigrl47: Do you know how many Oscar winners/nominees they conned into being part of Phase One? SO MANY.
BananaBoat: TOO MANY.
scifigrl47: SO MANY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD’VE KNOWN BETTER.
copperbadge: I think I know how they did it.
scifigrl47: Was it money?
copperbadge: I think they sent RDJ to their homes with flowers
copperbadge: And told him to refuse to leave until they said yes.
scifigrl47: Oh, GOD.
BananaBoat: ‘It’ll be the next Harry Potter!’
copperbadge: And it WAS, is the thing
Snowytumble: RDJ is magic
KnottaHooker: oh god it’s like that short for the Hulk, The Consultant
copperbadge: “If I can come back from FELONY PRISON TIME and make a winner — have you seen Iron Man? Because I’m great in it — then you will not be torpedoing your career. I swear.”
scifigrl47: “Hi, I’m Robert Downey Jr and I’m here to talk to you about being FUCKING awesome in a superhero movie. Can I come in? Just kidding, of course I can.”
copperbadge: “I like your drapes. So! How would you like to star in a superhero movie? Your own, of course, to start, but eventually with me.”
Snowytumble: “I’ll be there for you baby, would I lie to you?”
KnottaHooker: “I’ll stop playing with your cats if you’ll be in this movie”
scifigrl47: “Do you need a cat sitter? Because I can take this cat with me now, if you need me to. Or even if you don’t. This is a nice cat.”
Snowytumble: “Whoah! Nice cat! NICE cat! Watch the *face*!”
copperbadge: I like how this went from “Natalie Portman is awesome” to “RDJ is a crazy cat man.”
Yep. I would do what ever he asked if he showed up to my house with flowers….

When the distributor sends you the wrong stuff
When the distributor shorts you an entire order of books and then the book goes out of print and you can’t get it to any of your subscriptions without having to buy it from other stores
When the distributor’s software goes haywire the day inventory arrives and they don’t have anyone working in the tech department to help you until the next day when that help will be useless
When the distributor manages to accidentally order nearly $10,000 worth of statues for you and almost gets to the point of shipping out a shipment the size of your entire store before you can notice it on your invoice and call them up about it
When you open a box from the distributor and they packed all of the most fragile items in the most ludicrous way imaginable
When the distributor’s reps get kind of sassy with you when they made the mistakes
When you open a box from the distributor and they packed all of the most fragile items in the most ludicrous way imaginable «—- All of my incentives, and DF covers, oooh and some times trades. You’d think they would learn from mistakes… but no, never.
