Stan Lee Presents:

The Mighty Marvel Superhero's Cookbook!

Yes.

Winter (or Summer, for you Australians and nearby) holidays are, I think everyone can agree, are a time for food. Delicious food.

And so, my gift to you is this: Food, and cooking, the Marvel way. Have you ever wondered what type of cake Hulk likes best? Thor's feelings about cabbage or what sort of finger food might be available in you were asked over to T'Challa's place? Do you pine to know the best way to cook a meatball if Captain America's in town? Or Tony's second favourite type of engineering?

Now first, of course, let's make sure we'll be adhering to proper kitchen etiquette. We are heroines and heroes, after all, not common minions or grunts.

Got that? Good.

Now. Recipes!

The recipes in this book range from, well, recipes to basic "no shit" instructions. It's a book aimed at kids I guess, but some of them are.. well. I guess Super types are very busy, and have no time for fresh 'erbs.

I love this page. Just look at it:

One of you has to be in the mood for cake. PLEASE bake, photo, and report? On noscans, maybe?

I just love how SIMPLE Iron Man's is.

Here is a lesson for us all:

Finally, I think Marvel might think before casting copyright stones, no?

This is one of my favourite books. It has 93 pages, so if you want to see more, please ask! And many thanks to my beloved, for giving me such a gift!

I bet their heroing balances it out. As long as they're eating healthfully instead of using their telekinesis to shovel bonbons and whole cakes in their mouth, and as long as they're exercising by running around beating up Skrulls and stuff, they should be decently healthy. XD

'S what I think, anyway.

Plus, telekinesis itself might burn up calories. It does seem to take "energy", and some of that might be from the body's reserves, right?

Yes, I suppose you have a point there. I hadn't ever thought of that.

It's outright stated that Iceman burns 6000ish calories a day using his powers in one recent comic, I figure it's probably the same for most metahumans/mutants.

I love that Marvel takes the steps to both give their heroes' powers goofy-sounding names to try to make them sound more sciencey, and that they go to the lengths to tell you that superpowers burn gobs of calories.

I don't think DC does that. I think DC just kind of goes "Uh, yeah. ... Alien/supertech/magic! That's it!"
