What happens When You Try Drawing Comics While Watching A House Marathon

Hmmm...with Matt Murdock no longer a member of the bar in good standing, and She-Hulk meandering around with all that "Way Too Many Hulks" nonsense, Marvel's hero community is suddenly in dire need of a go-to person when it comes to legal representation.

Hey, remember Bernie Rosenthal, from the all-too-short Stern/Byrne run on Captain America in the early 1980s?

Well, at some point she graduated from glass-blower to high-powered lawyer. And when she's brought in to defend Captain Bucky in his criminal case, we can see the other upgrade:


She's now played by actress Lisa Edelstein.

Either that, or Dr. Cuddy from House, M.D. is moonlighting as an attorney. Which might be kinda cool, because that would mean House is in the Marvel Universe, and I'd love to see him try to work on Wolverine.

Butch Guice was the casting director/artist for Captain America #612.

Well, at least Guice isn't using porn actresses like Land.

All this reminds me how much I miss Trapper John, M.D..

Thank You! I am about to drop Captain America (because Bucky is not Cap) and I haven't like it since Bucky shot fake Cap off the damn and Falcom killed the flunky.
But when I saw Bernie Rosenthal as a Lawyer I was going HUH? WTF? If she was a member of the bar she'd have been a Late GF of Mr. Murdock by now....

Damn typos...I just worked a 12 hr shift and it should have been "liked It since" and the Dam not 'damn'...

Typos are easily forgiven, Alan.

Actually, Bernie left to study law (and eventually passed the bar) during Mark Gruenwald's run...

MOCK! said...

I've actually liked the Bucky run....I liked Steve Rogers, too, and I hope we don't get "Captain America Incorporated" but I am enjoying it all so far...

Brubaker has managed to keep my attention with his Cap run for years and years now. The Winter Soldier storyline was a master stroke and the man did what no one thought anyone could do, he brought back Bucky. He's yet to loose me. RIP Immortal Iron Fist.
