Also, there was nothing left but plain donuts. Who the hell eats plain donuts?!
Outhouse reporter Jude Terror was shocked and saddened this morning when he arrived a half hour later than usual to the Outhouse Newsroom, only to find that all of the good stories had been written up by ace reporter and former supervillain marquee vehicle ThanosCopter, who always arrives on time due to his ability to avoid traffic by flying high above the city.
"It's not fair," Terror told a group of other disgruntled writers behind ThanosCopter's back. "That guy is such a jerk!"
After writing up a story about Kurt Busiek returning to Astro City, drama over the book Sullivan's Sluggers, and Rand Paul's filibuster to promote Age of Ultron, the only remaining story to be written about was Marvel's introduction of a new Cloak and Dagger in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #24.
"What is this, 2004?" Terror frustratedly asked. "No one cares about the Ultimate Universe anymore, dammit!"
Well, almost no one. Cloak and Dagger are the lead story over at Marvel marketing department annex Newsarama, which gives us the solicitation text and cover for Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #24. "Can Miles return to Spider-Man after everything that's happened?" the solicitation asked.
"There's a new band of superheroes in town!" it continued. "What is Ultimate Power Pack?!"
"ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ," responded readers.
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #24 is out in June. Here's the cover and solicit, for what it's worth:
