Strickland5 Unlocks His Inner Avenger


Strickland5

Recommended Posts

So I'm building from my critical roll last challenge. It is time for the Avenger in me to Assemble!  

 

Cause I'm a bit of comic geek and hey I wanted a fun theme :)

Quest 1 : Run like QuickSilver (Sta+3)
tumblr_nu5m4uSipO1qg4wrco2_540.gif
Like Quicksilver I'm a runner first so I need to keep that going. I want to be accountable for my midweek and long runs as well as push myself to get to my sub-2 hour half marathon goal come November. 

 

Midweek runs I want to run at around 9m10s pace and/or long runs I'd like to keep under a 10 minute pace. I'm realistic about this and know I'll have a bad run or two in the mix so I'm going to give myself a bit of leyway and say that if I hit either of these run it'll count. 

 

A : 5 runs at goal pace

B : 4 runs at goal pace

F : less than 4 runs at goal pace

 
Quest 2 : Get Black Widow's Flexibility (Dex+3, Con+1)

Scarlett-Johansson-Black-Widow-Kick-GIF-

I'm not Russian spy assassin (I leave that to starsapart), but I respect the flexibility that Black Widow has. Building on my previous stretching challenge, I'm going to add a bit of yoga to my life. Once a week I'm going to do a yoda flow/routine to help prevent injury and increase my flexibility.

 

A : 6 times

B : 5 times

F : 4 times 

 
Quest 3 : HULKBUSTER Smash Diet (Wis+1)

tumblr_ntptoiVfJu1qkzh2zo1_500.gif

Booze and sweets have been creeping back into my diet and like Tony dealing with the Hulk I need to smash this right in the face. I know I'm not going to remove all the bad overnight but I've got to get myself into a better place. So I'm going to talk with the wife about working towards cleaning up the diet. I'll fill in the goals and such after said talk. 

 

UPDATE

The wife and I talked and we decided that after we get back from Austin (this comign weekend) we'll refocus on the fooding. We're going to start doing Sunday meal preps like so many do round here. As this is our first time really doing this i'm going to allow for a week of it JUST not happening ... cause well life.

 

A : 4 weeks of meal prep

B : 3 weeks of meal prep

F : 2 or less weeks of meal prep

 

 
Life Quest : Create a Vision (+2 Wis, +1 Chr)

tumblr_nnscktvoLr1qlujf1o1_500.gif

Unlike Ultron I don't want to upload my conscious to an advanced robot ... but I do want to get back into my photography as my camera has been gathering dust for far too long.  I'm going to start going back to group photo shoots and doing my work photog'ing again so I'll be posting pictures! 

 

A : 6 photos posted

B : 5 photos posted

F : 4 photos posted

Some great goals there! I love how you're going to work with your wife on the diet goal. Making sure you build in that support system right from the beginning is key! I know my own diet plan is going to go very smoothly since I enlisted my wife (who does most of the cooking)! It's great havign someone physically present that you are accountable to!

If she's not on board with the food stuff it makes it nearly impossible for me to make it happen as we'll be butting heads far too often.

 

Nice theme and congrats on the Week 6 of awesomeness

Love the theme and your challenge!

Such a great theme! Go, Avengers! 

Thanks all ... sometimes a good theme just comes together

Cosplaying season is sadly wrapping up, but I'm sure you can find a local cosplayer who would pose for you! :D It's fun, I promise :D

 

Also, isn't Spidey in black just called Venom and kinda evil? :P

I know a few cosplayers (samples of my previous cosplay photography ) I just can't recall if any of them do Black Widow.

Sort of ... Spiderman got the black suit in the original Secret Wars comics (1984-85). The suit turned out to be an alien being called "the symbiote" which did indeed turn out to be not nice. It later bonded with Eddie Brock to form Venom. Still Spidie has worn a black suit even after getting rid of the symbiote.

Those are fun cosplays! It's always a delight when you have a willing group of victims to photograph :D In theme too!

 

As far as Spiderman, I didn't realize he actually went back to black after Venom left him. Granted, Spidey is not my favorite Marvel character ;) I always loved Storm the best.

I love it when a plan comes together. Smart getting the wife involved in the food plans. That's a battle I too have faced.

Always loved Storm the best too.  One of the leaders of the X-Men, a Queen (of Wakanda) and worshipped as a Goddess.  LOVE STORM!!

Also, though it's not fully black, Miles Morales Spiderman suit from Ultimate Spiderman is  mostly black with red webs.

Miles' suit reminds me of Miguel O'Hara aka Spider-man 2099 (who's Mexican-Irish I think) only not as hard core

Pretty sure that is where the inspiration came from: Miles is the first black Spiderman but the second Latino one.  The first Latino one being Miguel as you point out :D.

OOooooo... Spidey looking cool!

Spidie 2099 is interesting ... probably cause Peter David wrote him
