Nick Fury may have known what he was getting into with S.H.I.E.L.D., but he probably had no idea just how complicated his life would become when he had to start wrangling The Avengers. This comic by Jenn Menze takes a fun look at how Fury gets them all out of bed and ready for the day, and then settles them all back down for a good night’s sleep.

The Avengers assembled to do some real world good recently for terminally ill cancer patient Stratford Caldecott who is a huge comic book fan, but has been too ill to go to the theater and see Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Sadly, he may not live long enough to see the Blu-ray release, so his daughter, journalist Sophie Lippiatt, decided to help. She wrote up a blog post to try and convince Disney/Marvel to send him a copy of the movie early, and the actors involved in the franchise gave her their support.

They tweeted pictures to Marvel while holding up signs with the hashtag #CapForStrat and the good news is that Stratford got his wish and will be able to see the movie. Now that Sophie has brought some joy into her ailing Father’s life, she has followed up with a beautiful thank you note to everyone and a request for privacy during this difficult time:

If we all take anything away from all of this, let it be that the world can be a good and gentle place, despite what we often hear to the contrary, and that the kindness of strangers is very real. To all those suffering now, please remember that you are not alone.

Our thoughts go out to Sophie and her family, and to all those fighting the battle against cancer.

See the tweets and Sopie’s follow-up note after the break.

Not only has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. been officially renewed for next season, but the network has also ordered a half season of Agent Carter! And since everything is official, they’ve released the first piece of promo art that’s shown above as well as a synopsis:

“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life—Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb.

Sounds like it’s shaping up to be quite a show.

We’ve already posted about how the Hail Hydra meme took off after the release of Captain America: The Winter Solider. Why shouldn’t Pikachu get in on the action?

Robert Downey Jr. arrived on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier this week and tweeted his arrival. Now Mark Ruffalo is following suit with a series of tweets from the set of the movie. His tweets included a few images, but don’t get too excited. They don’t reveal anything super secret, just a few fun shots of things on set.

There’s a hooded Black Widow, Downey Jr. posing with Ruffalo (Science Bros!), and the assembled chairs of all the cast members (in a tweet from Downey Jr.). Ruffalo later shared that production has moved from South Korea and Africa over to the United Kingdom.

It’s the 20th anniversary of the original Sailor Moon series and a reboot is on the way. With Captain America The Winter Soldier currently dominating at the theaters, it’s the perfect time for this mashup. Jei Shepard has blended the two worlds together into these fantastic Sailor Scout Avengers. Bet these guys could carry their own film.

I’d like to call Neila Rey a fitness guru or something encapsulating, but she eschews any kind of label on her site and the closest thing I could find was “Accessible Fitness & Active Lifestyle” on her twitter.

Whatever you call her, I call her a genius when it comes to making workouts geeky and easy to understand thanks to her poster series.

You can see more of her posters after the break.

Got a problem? Don’t worry, the Octopus Avengers are here to save the day! The cute little plushies were made by Darcy, and they are over-the-top cute. Captain America is my favorite with his little wings and “A” symbol, but Thor is a close second. I love the colors and all the little touches she’s added to the toys – for example, Loktopus (Loki) has a cape. Awesome.

See Iron Man, Thor, and Loki after the break.

If you’re looking for geeky valentine’s to give away this year, we have a variety from Jenny over at Never Ending Dick Jokes that may suit your needs perfectly. She runs from sweet to smutty and, as the name suggests, there’s a lot of double entendre.

See more after the jump and don’t blame me if you blush!
