While Valve might be working on 'peripherals' that could be heading to a Steambox near you, Reddit has created something of actual value.

Take some of the most recognizable characters from the Valve stable of titles and, in an affront to both god and science, mash them together with the film versions of The Avengers.  The Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Black Widow, and Thor all get alternate reality versions of themselves with characters from Left 4 Dead, Half-Life, and Team Fortress.

We can basically count this as Half Life 3 confirmation, right?
