Marvel Loves Halo
Posted By: JaredR <>Date: 5/2/07 7:58 p.m.

It's Wednesday and nerds know what that means! Comic book release day! With Halo: Uprising in July, Marvel is trying pretty hard to get the point across to their readers that yes, this whole Halo thing is kind-of, sort-of a big deal.

So I'm reading through the stack of books I picked up today and I've noticed not just one, not two, but three Halo references across two books. I can scan, cut and crop them if you guys would like, but here's what I found.

Ms Marvel #15
When asked if he can track punctures in the fourth dimension, SHIELD operative Baines replies-
"Quicker than I can kill noobs in a game of Halo."

Avengers: The Initiative #2
Cloud 9 has never actually shot live targets before. So when War Machine hands her a pulse rifle he tells her-
"It's just like playing Halo. Just point and click."

Later, while actually fighting-
"C'mon Abby. Just point and click. It's just like Xbox. Just like -- Holy -- I just blew up a plane."

I get it, Marvel. No Halo until July. Stop reminding me! I figured you guys would appreciate this more, as I bet my readers are sick of me talking about it :D
