Maria Hill vs. The Basement Dweller

It's every heroine's nightmare, captured by the foe they fear most! Maria Hill, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D, isn't in a complicated death trap set by HYDRA or The Red Skull, she's been captured by... THE BASEMENT DWELLER! Let's just hope she gets away before he slips her in to that protective Lucite sleeve...

Lela Gwenn's cosplay, my basement, comics, and video game controllers, & PS work using a variety of tricks. :)
See the original photo: Maria Hill cosplay No. 01
More from this set here [link] that image is also featured in a Whack! Magazine interview with Lela about her writing.

Considering my opinion of Maria Hill, all I can say is...GO, BASEMENT DWELLER!

We shot an entire series of "Maria Hill captured & in peril" that day, I have to finish the rest LOL.

The weird thing is, I'm more interested in the apparent fact that DC Comics exists in the 616 universe. I wonder, does Marvel Comics exist in the DC universe?

There's a lot of debate about this because of the repeated crossovers, the fact that the Amalgam universe is officially recognized in both continuities (Earth 9602!), and things like Spider Man talking about seeing Christian Bale as The Dark Knight. Marvel characters also appear in in-universe comics but comics readers also have other choices, and Superboy Prime comes form "our" world where all the DC heroes are just comic characters... which means the Marve comics exist there, too.

Lela & I had actually been joking about crossovers, which's one of the reasons I tossed DC comics up front & Marvel comics behind her... to see who'd notice LOL.

Now take a REALLY close look at the action figure in her cleavage if you want to totally blow your mind.

Unfortunately I can't quite make it out. It looks like some hooded person holding a sword. Emperor Palpatine?

Holy crap - I had that copy of JLI!

Nice pic too. :D

Thanks! I'm waiting for someone to ask why all the comics up front are DC lol. (The two along the back of the couch are Marvel, tho, and one's featuring the Avengers.)

Oh, it was just what I pulled out of the comic pile, lol, I didn't even think about it until later.
