Weird(cool) Panels: Excel

Work offered an Excel training today and I spotted one Emil Blonsky on the example spread sheet.  Emil Blonsky?  The Abomination from The Incredible Hulk?  Yup, upon further inspection, names like Rick Jones, Sharon Carter (Agent 13), Adam Strange, Henry McCoy (Beast), David North (Maverick), Warren Worthington (Archangel), Scott Lang (Ant-Man), Arthur Curry (Aquaman) and more started popping out before I realized the entire list was made up of names from the comic book and literature world.  For the uninitiated Jones is Marvel's sidekick supreme having been saved by Bruce Banner and subsequently rolled with the Jade Giant on many an adventure.  Jones later teamed up with Captain America and briefly assumed the mantle of dead partner Bucky.  Jonesy later picked up the Nega-Bands, becoming Captain Marvel and fighting in the space set, alien filled Kree-Skrull War.

Some of the names were pretty damn obscure and after investigation came to light as the identities of Amazing-Man, Anaconda, Anarky, Black Canary, The Absorbing Man and Spider-Woman.  That's one way to keep someone's interest during a seminar.  Only I'm pretty sure nobody else got it but that's about normal for me.

That's our Rick:
