Captain Contest

Happy Friday! Now that the weekend is here, what should do with it? In my opinion, and as promised, you should read my review of Captain America: The Winter Soldier over at Slice of SciFi and plan accordingly.

Planning to stay home this weekend? No worries. Check out my review of Star Wars: Clone Wars, Season 6 also over at Slice of SciFi to see if you should choose it for your Netflix binging pleasure.

And if you just want to hang out and listen to all things geek, check out the latest installment of More Geek Than Gay. Then, check out what's on Bibliognome's TBR pile. Speaking of which...

What else shall we do with this weekend's time? Well, I have a couple of books that a couple of people might, you know, want. That's right, it's time for a Flash Contest! Yes, you read that right. There are two copies of Alien Collective up for grabs. There will be another contest coming (when I get my other copies in), but since DAW saw fit to toss a couple extras to me fast, I'm seeing fit to do the same for all of you. Yes, it's open internationally. All you'll need to do is answer THIS question: If you could pair Kitty up with any superhero not in the Kittyverse, who would it be and why?

Yes, this one requires a specific Blog comment in order to enter. Contest runs through Monday, April 7. Winners announced on Tuesday, April 8. Because it's a flash contest (get it? Flash? Heh, oh, I slay me) so it's gotta go FAST. As always, if the winners don't claim their prizes fast, as in by Thursday, April 10, the Gods of Random will snatch back the prize and choose a new winner. Because they're more like Loki than Thor, that's why.

That's it for today, but as always, there's more on the way. So let's be pop culture consuming winning readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, catch you on the flip side, and may the Gods of Random smile upon you.

Love,
Gini

But...but...Kitty belongs with Martini!!!!
Fine, if you're going to make me choose someone else - well, I'm still refusing by picking Martian Manhunter because he can actually BE Martini ;-)

It would definitely be Thor. Because he is so gorgeous!!

The Flash! He might be almost fast enough to keep up with her.

Wolverine!

I would say the superhero that should be paired with Kitty is .... Captain Hammer. Because of his wit, body and he is played by Nathan Fillion.

I reposted this because it didn't show my name on the first comment.

I could see her teaming up Agent Phil Coulson of SHIELD, his one liners that he puts out at times would probably give her laughing fits.

I think Kitty should pair up with Ironman because he'll get her humor. I think they'd probably get along well as long as he doesn't try to be too protective.

I would have to say Thor, looks, strenght and she would drive him nuts which could be fun

I definitely think Thor would be a great choice, just imagine what Kitty could do with that hammer! Oh the imagination is running wild here - forget the roses we got guns and hammers :D

Any of the crew of Serenity: especially Cap'n Reynolds, River, Zoe or Jayne, because LOTS OF GUNS AND SASS!

Can't wait for the next bookie wookie!

I would say a whole group more specifically: the Watchmen. Kitty is used to working with ubermench men very well and she knows how to deal with Dr. Manhattan (similar to ACE) and can conspiracy throw with Ozymandias (similar to her CIA best friend Chucky) and can fight crime like Rorschach (close to her assassin uncles- though I would guess there is a better parallel somewhere in there that I can't think of right now.)

I am thinking it would be a toss up between Thor and Wolverine.

I go with Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man/Tony Stark, he is just as snarky as she is.

Tony Stark/Iron Man. It would be sarcasm overload - totally fantastic!

I would have to ixnay RDJrs Tony Stark/Iron Man....she had a chance at Snark Boy and she passed him up for Empath Boy... (I know, I wouldn't classify EITHER as a boy, but....)

Blogger write with butterflywings said...

She can't have Tony Stark. He's mine :D She would need to make him humble and that would break him. Too sarcastic and prideful for her. He'd never take orders, no matter how much they made sense. She'd eat him alive.

No, I think she would be great with Batman. He could use someone hot and sexy and NOT evil.

She is downgrading with any switch. Poor Martini! But it opens up all kinds of possibilities...

Blogger bfree2read said...

My first thought was Agent J from the Men in Black movie because of they would get each other's humor and drive K and Zed crazy. But I don't thing the Men in Black quite count as superheroes. Drat.

So maybe pair Kitty up with Wolverine instead. Hugh Jackman is definitely AC handsome.

since she has the sexy guy I am going with Jane Grey since she smart and brainy and they could bond over virgin mojito and talk about men and kicking a$$

Blogger rissatoo said...

I kept trying to think of a superhero NOT of The Avengers to pair Kitty with, but none of them were right - they wouldn't get her. So I think perhaps RDJ's IronMan is the best we can do.

Blogger WahlRead said...

I think Kitty would do well with the 'smart'-self-aware Hulk ... smart - although occasionally dense, lovable with kids, subtle wit but big and strong ... kind of like Martini right before he needs that adrenalin harpoon :)

Blogger Shavana Merrick said...

I have two to suggest. Wolverine of course: Wolverine with boobs !!! But if one I think possibly Spiderman. Both geniuses in their own way. Plus with the web thing going he can catch her easily cause we all know it's a given that she's gonna fall.

I would team Kitty up with *Wonder Woman*, because them together will be the most awesome Badass Women Gang and they will kick butt of everything villain :D

Wolverine of course - Mrs. "Wolverine with boobs!"

The Green Lantern. Both for snark and wit. They would be great going to Alien world's and kick butt. They would get each others isms.

Blogger Andrea Rittschof said...

Wolverine. As one person put it, Kitty constantly states she is Wolverine with boobs. They have a similar style and would get the job done with minimum chat about it. Plus he's dead sexy and who can't like that? Everyone loves the hot Wolverine!

Wolverine! How many times has Kitty said she is Wolverine with boobs? I'm pretty sure that would make her day :)

John Constantine
Sure, he smokes. All the great ones have their flaws. However...
He wears a suit - reminiscent of Martini
He has an obsessive personality - reminiscent of Martini
He is super-smart - a nod to Chuckie
He has both that 'it' quality; and, the je ne se quois with Swamp Thing - a wink to Reader
John Constantine. He is the superhero for Kitty

I would pair her up with Thor. They would be kickass and gorgeous together.

For superhero, Tony Stark, just for sarcasm and snark overload. For comics, Constantine, for their unusual way of solving problems.

The Hulk because he could go all Hulk on Kitty's big bads!

The Hulk. Only because I'd love to read the interaction between the two. I laugh just thinking about the potential conversations.

I would think of Flash because like him she was fully human at first and then both add to adjust so they have a lot in common ( but Martini still wins^^)

thank you a lot for the international giveaway!

Kitty Pryde, then we could not only have the Kitty Kat Club, we could match Kitty to "The Wolverine with Boobs" ala the Kitty Pryde/Wolverine Graphic Novel

I would think The Green Lantern. They have space as something in common. Thanks for sharing.

Constantine. Sarcasm galore for them both :D

Anonymous bejeweledcat said...

My first call would have been Tony Stark or Flash but then I thought again. She needs someone quieter and less mouthy; they would all be trying to talk at one time. I'd go with Wolverine, he's less talkative and would be able to keep up with all the trouble she gets into. Hank Prim might be a good choice, he's got the brains to keep up with her. Batman only if he'll share his toys (although she'd never read the manuals!)

Iron Man. I agree with bejeweledcat that it would be a snarkfest and can you imagine the destruction those two would get up to?

Definitely Wolverine, because they both are badass!! He can definitely handle Kitty!

Hmmmmmm... This is actually really a tough one to decide. Ummmm... I think I would pair her up with Longshot, because not only would he fit right in with the AC's with his 2 hearts and superhuman abilities, he and Kitty share similar tastes in music lol.

April 7, 2014 at 1:50 PM  
Blogger Scarlett said...

The obvious answer would seem to be Wolverine...because she's Wolverine with boobs but they're both shock and awe kind of people and sometimes you need a little stealth...so, I might partner her with Mystique instead because they could balance each other out and I think Mystique could keep up with Kitty just fine ^_~

April 7, 2014 at 4:26 PM  
Blogger Deanna Haddrill said...

Definitely Superman! He's the only one hotter than Martini (or close to anyway), and she would drive him insane with the things she gets up to! She might even loosen him up a little :)

I would love to see her with Black Widow. We all know she can work with the boys, but I think the two of them together would be almost unbeatable. They both have such kick ass attitudes that it would be a joy to watch, um read.

If I could pair Kitty up with anyone, it would have to be the Flash (since this is such a quick contest). :) Plus, Kitty had that moment with Alliflash in Alien Tango and she now needs to meet the real deal. Personally, I would go for the Barry Allen version. He was always so adorable in the comics and I loved the portrayal of him in the Life Story of Flash written by "Irish Allen." But I digress...As always, I absolutely love your books and want my own Reader, Martini, or Chuckie. I'm not picky. ;) Lots of love!!

I think I would introduce Kitty Katt-Martini to Kitty Norville. The cover of Alien Collective could very easily be a picture of them Kicking Ass together.
