Going out on a limb by saying this movie’s going to be awesome. Everyone who’s seen it seems to think so. Me, I don’t know yet.
Best advertising ever
Jesus loves you.
But mostly He loves The Avengers.
*BA DUM TSH*
But does Satan like this movie? That is a pretty important question.
Satan likes the violence, and the skimpy outfits. He’s also fond of the OTHER god in this movie cuz…it’s not the one he’s used to
Your Rei Avatar made that so much better seeing as she’s a crazy Satanist in the Abridged series…
And yeah. Loki and Satan BFFs
I should have being even more in character by posting in CAPLOCK.
I think Satan would prefer to see a Defenders movie because then there’d be a chance his son Daiman Hellstrom would be in it.
Of course He does -Black Sabbath’s in the soundtrack (and on the tee that Robert Downy Jr wears for most of the film)
I’m just back from watching it and all I can say is YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!
Of course he loves it with infernal glee – all that money and avarice … plus all those residuals … lust, greed, envy …. its a bonanza of evil franchising … and makes an “in-your-face-old-school” to the lil upstarts at Fox.
So Galanos has Short Circuit DVDs he showed Jesus??
My money’s on Ultra Car
I thought that the funnies part of today’s comic was the list of movies that Jesus has seen.
I love that Ethan thinks it needed batman…give a month or 2…you’ll get your spandex wearing bat themed crime-fighter Ethan.
Spandex, not so much.
I will be happy if it doesn’t have nipples on it.
Yup – best body armor you can buy and not design and build yourself unless you were some kind of multimillionaire genius with talent at engineering and science and … wait … uhm …..eh … Look! PONIES!!! …[hides]
When has the nolan Batman ever worn spandex?
Only in my dreams.
Does the trailer count?
Just saw avengers myself, and funnily enough, there is a reference to Batman.
I wonder what he’ll think of the short circuit remake.
What is Jacob’s eye doing, oh my god
I CAN’T UNSEE IT!
Great, I hadn’t noticed until I saw these comments.
At the midnight release and I’m reading a comic about how awesome the movie is going to be.
Dammit! Where’s the spoiler tag!?
Is that a separate thing from the Drama Tag?
That would make this a totally different comic.
Robin sees a tag on the wall that says “Spoilers” and pulls it. Suddenly River Song appears instead of the Head Alien.
“Hi. Ethan is gay, Amber’s father was abusive, and you are totally going to fall in love with a lesbian then bang a dude and get dumped. Also, the Second Coming will occur, but it will involve less fire and brimstone and more going to see the Avengers with Jesus. That movie will rock, by the way. Spoilers!”
“Have you guys gotten to the part with Amber’s dad yet? If so what do you think about the whole him abusing her thing and then dying before she can tell him off?”
“Oh, and Robin, remember to keep replacing Amber’s birth control pills; Mike will LOVE you for it!”
I notice Jesus apparently needs to wear his blue robe-thingy with his street clothes as well. I can just imagine Robin stalking him everywhere, ready to kick his ass if he takes it off.
He needs to rep his bible gang or else his followers are gonna “remind” him about their dress code
With an iron chariot?
well if historically accurate jesus liked it, than that is all i need to know to go see it
Oh man. I can just imagine Jesus sitting around with Ultra-Car trying to make sense of Short Circuit, which requires him to wrap his mind around slightly more advanced tech than exists in the world he’s living in.
I imagine Jesus found Cap and Thor the most relatable of the bunch.
I think if he can accept the existence of Ultra-Car himself (who is apparently quite common now with the Zoomers), he won’t have any trouble with Johnny 5.
sentient robotics will blow his mind. To think…back in his day the best he could build were cabinets and tables (which he flips over)
Ah, I see now. He didn’t flip the tables in outrage, he was just checking the craftsmanship.
It was the poor craftsmanship that made Him rage out.
It’s nice to see that Zangief has finally been accepted by the others.
Or he just followed them there and nobody noticed.
Of course, he’s Ethan’s new partner after all.
Saw the movie May 1st (benefit of working for Comicpalooza in Houston). It is easily one of the best Marvel movies made to date. Every character has at least 1 moment of awesome (most have more). Dialogue is snappy. The emotional underpinning is there. Dark Knight Rises will be hard pressed to outdo it.
Incidentally, if Willis somehow got a hold of the licensing rights to the Avengers logo, I’d want the last panel on a T shirt. Hell I might even get it printed up myself.
Oh, I forgot you got the movie one week later
They have only shown Jesus 3 movies in all this time? that’s cold…
I dunno…I imagine Jesus is the kinda guy who you have to take in small doses.
I haven’t seen three movies since he was introduced.
He’s obviously trying to catch up with the times.
do you really need to see anything besides the SC series?
Though letting Jesus watch the Passion would be a hoot.
,i>”Does Jesus suffer from PTSD, lets find out.”
Need everyone’s help to win a bet; get this movie to over 160 million weekend opening.
200.6 Million and counting ….. =P
You have to wonder while Jesus was watching Short Circuit 2 what kind of thoughts he had on the idea of making a sequel…
Given his limited background on the subject i’d wonder what his thoughts on the concept of sequels were.
Some would have you believe that Jesus was a sequel. And/or that Mohammad was the sequel to Jesus.
The fanfic messes up the sense of continuity.
Jesus is a sequel that came from a different production team and may or may not actually be canon.
nice that they brought ken with them
‘Fess up, Willis, the entire reason you brought Jesus into the strip was just to set up for this joke.
You’re assuming that he knew the movie was going to be good long before it was released.
I knew it would…but then again I have no taste in movies…I’m just like Ryu…
Short Circuit 2 was clearly the best of the series.
Well, it did kind of go downhill after that.
You know, based on the direction Robin’s facing, Jesus is sitting next to Leslie.
Now I have a valid reason to skip evening service on sunday to see this movie.
Can’t you go to morning service?
Imma let you finish, Jesus, but Short Circuit 2 is the best movie of all time. OF ALL TIME!
…okay, tired memes aside, I once did consider Short Circuit 2 to be my favourite movie of all time. These days, it has been dethroned by The Incredibles.
I caught a press screening yesterday. Absolutely loved it. I really hope we get a Hulk movie with Ruffalo, he really stood out for me.
Would Jesus be game for film portrayals of his life?
Jesus enjoyed Life of Brian and thought Superbook was cute, but thought Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ was a little pretentious, and didn’t get some of the jokes in Jesus Christ Superstar.
I think he would find Passion of the Christ traumatic. It was probably painful enough to live through it the first time, being forced to relive it is just cruel.
Like having a holocaust surviver sit through Schindler’s List.
I imagine Jesus’s one complaint about Life of Brian is that Kenneth Colley looks nothing like him.
For the record (yes, I just got home from the midnight showing), it was an epic and wondrous movie. I will probably see it eight more times.
The Avengers would have been awesome in its own right, but the Hulk’s presence in it just kicks it up to 11,000. Seriously, the big green guy steals the show whenever he shows up.
Makes sense, Hulk am strongest there is!
Just got back from a screening. Such a great movie made even better by the fact that now Joss Whedon is on the verge of having directed one of the highest grossing movies of all time.
I feel bad for Jesus.
Excluding Short Circuit 2, he’s seen the best, first. Everything else will be such a shallow mockery to what he has seen. The Son of Man will grow cynical.
God help us if he becomes a cynical, internet movie critique.
So you think Jesus will join The Guy With The Glasses?
I’d watch his stuff. Be great if he met Santa Christ.
Even better if he met ….
DRUNK AND BITTER JESUS: he’s back and this time it’s personal. Hey you’d be drunk and bitter too if some assholes nailed you to a stick and then everybody started following the word of some crazy guy name Paul who never even met you. He’s surly and he’s your Savior.
Easily the best movie I’ve seen this year. I want to make a joke about Jesus dressing in a blue sash, but it might contain a spoiler for the movie so I shall simply hint about it and see if people get the joke I’m implying.
This movie did not need Jesus praising it to make me know it will rock… but this does not hurt it.
It was awesome. I saw it last Tuesday. Because I live in the philippines (hi malaya!). Ah, the advantages of not having Free Comic Book Day.
Jesus hasn’t been this excited about a movie since “Dark Knight”
I KNEW this strip reminded me of something!
I concur, Jesus. I concur. http://blip.tv/kschenke/driving-home-the-movie-the-avengers-6126712
Your genuine enthusiasm in this video is practically adorable. “Joss Whedon breaks your heart and you don’t care! ‘Give me more!’”
Was already excited to see it this sunday but now it’s Jesus approved that makes it so much better.
Saw the Avengers last night. If you are a geek, you must see it. The power of Whedon compels you.
I was once a loyal follower. Now, I fear I’d end up going to see it with a checklist.
Captain America has a line I’m sure Jesus loved.
Freaking awesome movie.
In fact, dare I say, it was… titanic.
Just went to see it.
Wow. My fanboyism has been rewarded. I would watch that five more times.
I have borne witness to the glory of The Avengers.
There are no words grand enough to adequately describe my joy.
Then say it with flowers …..
There are no flowers on this world possessed of sufficient raw ‘awesome’ to convey an appropriate opinion on the Avengers, so that may involve interplanetary shipping.
