Marvel Goes Mobile!

I'd been meaning to get around to spicing up my phone's run-of-the-mill wallpaper with some choices that gave it a little more zing for me. You probably don't need to be a rocket scientist to guess which direction I went in for "zing":

Yes--for all intents and purposes, a Marvel phone.

And if you think I stopped there, you can't be serious. I thought I might play around with some Silver Surfer art next:

From there, I moved on to the Avengers. One scene involved putting the "Big 3" together in one shot, while the other relied on a wonderful pin-up by Sal Buscema:

Now, you only need so much wallpaper for a phone, so I had to pull in the reins at some point, even as fun a project as this had been. With comic books, the sky's the limit as far as adapting memorable characters and scenes, so it can be hard to narrow down all of the choices. I decided to close out with Phoenix, who's probably saying "sayonara" to D'Bari as its sun was about to incinerate it:

I haven't yet gotten to the point of recording a voice mail message while imitating Thor or Captain America, but I'm not embarrassed to tell you I'm thinking about it.

Ooooh, either the voice of Jarvis saying "Your phone, Sir" or the "horse" from Monty Python's Holy Grail saying "Message for you, Sir" and your phone would be complete!!!!
