Well, here we are, another Marvel First Look and another appreance from WIFE.
I really have no idea what this event is about, so here's some context from the Marvel press release (you may recognize it as being a part of every article you're read about these four pages):
This July, prepare yourself for the biggest comic book event of the summer with New Avengers #8 – a prelude to Infinity – from the blockbuster creative team of writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Mike Deodato! With causalities piling up in the war between Wakanda and Atlantis, will the Illuminati be forced to step in? Meanwhile, as more people learn of the Illuminati, their future may grow bleak. How long will they be able to keep their secrets and protect the Earth before everything falls apart? And what role do the Inhumans play? Find out here!
New Avengers #8
Cover to New Avngers #8:
WIFE: Is that a pug dog? I didn’t know pug dogs had comics. I may have been reading more comics all this time if I knew they had pugs in them.
RU: No, that’s, oh, crap-nuts, whatshisname – LOCKJAW! I have no idea what kind of dog he is, but he’s an Inhuman
WIFE: Can’t I just keep thinking of him as a pug dog? With their squishy little faces.
RU: You been drinking?
WIFE: That has nothing to do with pug dogs and whether or not they have little squishy faces!
(Editor’s Note, WIFE and RU looked Lockjaw up on the wikkepedias and discovered he is supposed to look like a bulldog. WIFE responded; “Ah, but look at his squishy little face!”)

RU: I TOLD YOU IRON MAN HAD A SEX DUNGEON!
WIFE: Wait; is Reed in the sex dungeon with Tony?
RU: Yes, yes he is.
WIFE: Is this that “tentacle rape” that was a thing a while back?
RU: I don’t even…what?
New Avengers #8: Preview Page 3
WIFE: Oh, is that where Lando Calrissian lives?
RU: How do you spell that?
RU: fair enough.
WIFE: Dude looks like a douche-bag. Why does he have a popped collar?
RU: I have no idea, this has been all Fantastic Four and Iron Man so far, and I kinda want to stab my eyes out.
WIFE: Yea, this book looks dumb. Two thumbs down.
RU: You remember that Bah-Bah- Black Sheep we did with Lando?
RU: You know
Bah Bah Black Sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full
One for Luke
And one for Leia
And one for Lando,
Dude’s a playa!
WIFE: Yea… RuRu’s gonna get beat up a lot.
RU: You’ve met my dad, this is what we call “paying it forward.” Oh, yea, and if you want to read this with words, not that that will guarantee any sense making, it comes out:
