Nick Fury’s Howling Commandos
A powerful magician claiming to be the one true Merlin (one of many characters in the Marvel Universe to make this claim) escapes from a S.H.I.E.L.D. containment facility dubbed the Warehouse. He journeys to the United Kingdom, where he transforms the entire country into a fantasy realm. The Howling Commandos are charged with stopping him.

The team is headquartered in Area 13, a classified base run by S.H.I.E.L.D. for its supernatural black op program. It also serves as a research and development facility, specializing in the supernatural.

    Hey, I’m the guy that had the question about conventions. Thanks for all of the advice, there was a good deal of it I hadn’t thought of yet. We actually go to the convention in a little over a week, (it’s the last weekend in July), and are very excited. We splurged on getting the Stan Lee VIP tickets which include the picture & autograph so we could make sure to get those. I’ll try to get back into drinking water for the convention, but orange juice is mostly out since my gf is allergic to it. I’ll be sure to post some pictures from the convention in the forum when we return. Once again, thanks for all the advice and keep up the good work.

    Great show guys!.

    The membership site is really shaping up to look cool, excited to have that go live.
    Shame about the lack of Zach, but Rodrigo’s sexy post-cold voice more than makes up for it. Oh yeah!

    And damn you guys, making me excited about something as silly as Gamma looks to be.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
