Dear friends, I must apologize profusely for the lack of Superhero Sunday posts. Frankly, I ran out of material and ideas. And then… it hit me. Like a bag of flour. 😀 And so I present to you, the Marvel One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor’s Hammer. (Also known as Agent Coulson Beats Up Two Robbers With A Bag of Flour)<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/93003808″>Marvel One-Shot – A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor’s Hammer Sub Thai By Agent K – CGT</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/user27348955″>ComicsGuideThailand</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
Now why did I choose to post this video? Well, not only does it have some awesome quotes (“Tell them those Tae Bo tapes really paid off.”) and a very interesting bag of flour (Did you know that “Steranko” is actually the last name of a guy who used to do drawings for Marvel? It’s actually not a brand of flour. Imagine that. And is that even flour? I don’t remember convenience stores carrying that…) but it also has a good message.
After all, Agent Coulson doesn’t say his name once in the entire video. Go ahead, watch it again. In fact, if you don’t know Marvel very well, you may have had no idea who that was!
My point? The Bible says in Matthew 6:1, “‘Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.'” We shouldn’t do our good deeds to be seen by others.
As far as I know, Coulson never tells anyone about this. (The title shows that it happens during one of the Thor movies, neither of which I’ve watched. *gasp* So I might be wrong about that.) But as Christians, we’re not supposed to flaunt our good deeds for others to see. We’re supposed to keep them secret, for only God to know.
So become a secret agent for God, and do your good works to be seen by him, not others!
