384. Patriot

Enjoyed this character’s turn in the original Young Avengers run, but I’m not sure what happened to him afterward.

Speaking of America, I watched American Hustle. Some really good acting couldn’t save this movie from desperately wishing it was a Martin Scorsese film, and in the process forgetting that the unlikeable characters and convoluted plot were turning it into a dull turd.

    There shoulda been more Louis C.K. (in American Hustle not in the… wait a minute… a young Louis C.K. in the Young Avengers might be pretty awesome)!

    So yeah, as far as DC/Marvel crossovers go that movie was kind of lame. Bruce Wayne never put on the costume and Mystique didn’t even use her powers once!

    Louis CK was the only thing I enjoyed about A.H. And yes, he’d have been great in Young Avengers, too.

    Yeah, there should have been more Batman/Mystique action, but you can’t discount when Hawkeye and Rocket Raccoon teamed up, followed around by Lois Lane.

    I think Patriot may have died? Something possessing his costume appeared in Gillen/McKelvie’s Young Avengers, but I don’t know what the whole story was with that.
