The Penultimate Meme Edition!

I'm in the home stretch and will have finished these by tomorrow.

...

Whereupon I'll have to think of something new to blog about. Damnit. :-)

---

Jaime Reyes's mother - I believe if it came down to it, she could totally take out Lex Luthor, Deathstroke or any of those sorts in a probably unconventional but still effective way.

Movieverse!Pepper Potts - was once a tightrope walker. That's how she can run in those shoes. :-)

Movieverse!Tony Stark - Once bagged the entire Swedish Volleyball team while on a business trip in Tokyo. In fact, it was on the Tokyo Tower. He only noticed the unfortunate design of the mascot after the fact however. He lined his office with them for three weeks until Obadiah finally lost his temper and had them cleaned out.

Non-movieverse, emo Tony Stark - Probably did the same thing. But angsted about it.

Movieverse!Samuel Sterns - Actually always wanted to shave his head bald. He tried it once in high school. Not a good look for him.

Katma Tui - Was set up once on a blind date with Sinestro when she was very young. She threw her drink in his face.

Ben Grimm - Is a champion with a yo-yo.

Dawn Fury (Nick's sis) - Once married a stage magician and now works as a surprisingly effective SHIELD hypnotherapist who needlepoints explosion scenes.

Percival Pinkerton - Um. I may have to take a pass on this one. Considering the guy ended up running a Playboy-type nightclub complete with attractive women dressed as Bunnies, I'm not sure how to proceed from there. His awesomeness defies me even now.

J. Jonah Jameson - is actually a distant cousin of Nick Fury. This explains a lot.

Dr. Strange - has a thing for dinosaur bones. And bad sci-fi channel movies.

Dr. Doom - Worked as a TA for an intro to chemistry course back in college, before everything went wrong. Those poor students.

Dr. Midnite - Secretly has a jones for popcorn.

    Well that certainly explains a lot. Then again, I can't walk in heels without strutting. Running in heels is far easier. Although MoviePepper Potts certainly was scarily good at running in them.

    That's...that's an interesting mascot there. I can see it appealing to Tony Stark however.

    And the popcorn was inspired.

    I think they'd have to "expand" the established timeline a little, but I'd *love* to read a "Reed, Ben, and Victor: The College Years" series.

    Obviously, Richards is Doom's lifelong arch-enemy, but Ben Grimm would have a long history of really annoying Doom in various ways.

    Love the Dr Strange and Dr Doom ones!

    Movieverse!Star probably would line his office with those things. I'm trying to decide if he would play innocent when confronted with them.

    Incidentally, I happened to watch the Iron Man DVD extras last night, and they reveal that, whatever MoviePepper Potts' skills at running in heels may be, Real-Life Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't appear to share them.

    They showed a bit of the live filming of her "running from Iron Monger" scene, and she's wearing some sort of flat-soled black shoes (running shoes of some sort, I assume.)

    She also could be seen wearing some comfy-looking boot/slipper type footwear when she (and/or her feet) weren't on camera.
