Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.
“He remembered the smell of her hair, the warmth of her body. You were wrong to love her, a voice whispered. You were wrong to leave her, a different voice insisted.”
Some of the things hidden in the Lost scene are the plane, the frozen wheel, a Dharma computer, Charlie’s guitar, Locke’s wheelchair, a polar bear skull and Jacobs ankh.
As a total Lostie, can I just say that I think this is awesome!
Food Chain: On a field trip to the Candy Kingdom Museum of Natural History, Finn and Jake learn about the Food chain by becoming the food chain!
Wake Up: In order to find Finn’s father, Finn and Jame must commit a cosmic crime…unless the Lich beats them to it.
Escape from the Citadel: Finn and Jake follow the Lich of the Citadel, where Finn meets his long lost dad. But just how far does the apple fall from the tree?
James II: Finn and Jake discover that Clone James has been faking his own death to collect medals. But there are 25 Jameses funning amok!
The Tower: Finn doesn’t like any of the new arms the princesses give him, so he builds a tower into space to find his dad and get his old arm back.
Sad Face: Once a month, while Jake’s asleep, his tail stretches out of the treehouse to go work as a clown in a traveling bug circus.
Princess Day: It’s Princess Day in Ooo! You know what that means? Yep, LSP and Marceline team up to prank Breakfast Princess!
Breezy: With a friendly bee named “Breezy” as his wingman, Finn decides to get back into the dating game.
I’ve gotten a few questions about the last post I made about Marceline’s mother being a human, so I’m just going to respond to all of them here.
Isn’t Marceline half-demon and half-vampire, not half-human?
Well, Marceline wasn’t always a vampire. In certain flashbacks she is not seen with bite marks. She doesn’t have bite marks during her time with Simon and she doesn’t have bite marks when her dad eats her fries.
Also, as a vampire she wouldn’t be eating french fries because she only eats shades of red. The vampire characteristics she has as a child, like the grayish skin, pointed ears, and teeth are not a result of her vampirism. They are from her half-demon side, since Hunson Abadeer has the same features.
The first time Marceline is chronologically seen with the bite marks is when her and Ash are seen moving into the Tree Fort.
After this flashback, her appearance remains the same throughout as far as age. So this means that sometime between her dad eating her fries and moving in with Ash she was turned into a vampire.
How do you know that her mom was a human?
Adam Muto said so himself this year at Wondercon.
I thought there were no humans in Ooo, how can her mother be a human?
You have to keep in mind that Marceline is 1003 years old, she was alive before the Mushroom War. Before the Mushroom War, humans were the main inhabitants of Ooo before the war and mutations happened.
There were already many speculations that her mother was a human because Marceline said herself that she is a half-demon. And it’s not like her father could have mated with a candy person or anything like that because they didn’t exist yet.
To understand the reason for the border around the episode Bad Timing, you have to notice a few things at the end.
Throughout the whole episode we see a border with tiny creatures playing around in it. But at the end we see a character appear, it’s Johnnie from the episode. And he generates exactly how Lumpy Space Princess sent him through the time machine. See:
She sends his head first
And then his body
And that’s exactly how he appears in the border. Head first, then body.
That’s because this is a sort of alternate dimension. Seemingly one that can look into the show’s dimension but can’t be seen by it. And it’s clear that the dimension Johnnie is in can see to the other because he reaches out for LSP and looks like he’s calling for her.
Then he realizes that she cannot see or hear him.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen or heard about other realities in the show. Booko from The Lich brought up that there are other dimensions and ways of reaching them, and this seems to be an example.
It’s going to be a two parter continuing from Billy’s Bucket List.
The first part is called Wake Up, and the synopsis says:
"Finn and Jake must commit a cosmic crime in order to find Finn’s father."
The second part is called Escape from the Citadel, and it’s synopsis says:
"Finn and Jake follow The Lich to the citadel."
Get excited, everyone!
Some people have said that the giant tree Lemonhope looks at isn’t Finn and Jake’s treehouse, but it is. The storyboard confirms it:
On that note, I notice that you can’t see the Ice Kingdom in the background. There’s not even now on the ground in the distance. Makes me wonder….
Also, when Lemonhope goes back to the Lemon Kingdom it looks pretty much the same.
The Candy Kingdom and the Treehouse were noticeably different, but this looks the same. It makes me think that it was abandoned not too long after the events of Lemonhope part 2. Even Lemonhope’s room that Princess Bubblegum set up for him is untouched.
Also, notice the Banana Guard doll. :)
On the storyboard, it says that the thing around Lemonhope is a force field. When he finds his room, he turns off his force field and lays in his bed. I don’t know what the force field is protecting him from but listen the lyrics during this part specifically.
Safe Lemonhope, no more will you roam,
once you were lost and now you’re back home.
To me, it sounds and looks like he came back home to die. And really, what’s even left for him? Ooo seems abandoned and he’s lived a full and long life.
So at the end of Lemonhope we see a clip into the future, and there is a scene where you can see the Candy Kingdom.
The city has been well expanded, but there are no more citizens and the tree atop the Candy Kingdom is dead. It makes sense that the town beyond the Candy Kingdom would expand, especially if this is 1000 years later like suggested. But what caused the abandonment of the Candy Kingdom and all the people? It wasn’t bombed, as some have suggested.
Here’s a little tidbit from the storyboard that clearly says it was “abandoned, not bombed.”
It is sad to think about, though. Princess Bubblegum has tried so hard to make a stable society, and even though this is far into the future, it shows that that won’t always be so.
