So after all this time, we finally see Valentine, and wow I’m so unimpressed! The scar is supposed to make him badass and menacing, but the suit and then later his actions in this scene really gives me the impression that Valentine is a really mildly annoyed accountant. And not in the badass way Agent Coulson is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I mean Agent Coulson, with all his Captain America fanboy shenanigans could totally whip Valentine’s ass. And the cherry on top? Coulson is completely ‘mundane’. *cackles*
Agent Phil Coulson has more badassery in his freaking pinky finger than Valentine has in his entire body! Seriously, Valentine is basically just a limp noodle with delusions of grandeur He’s Voldemort’s lamer uncool cousin. And all the kudos I gave Valentine back in the last post? I take it them back, because even after Hodge’s betrayal VALENTINE JUST LETS HIM FUCKING GO!!!
He just gathers Jace and the cup and bounces. Seriously, after all of this fucking build up, after all of that talk, after Valentine had everyone quaking in their books at the mere thought of him, we get this mediocre asshat!
I can’t even say anything else, I’m just…completely dumbfounded at how people can with a straight face tell me that this book is flawless.
