The Mighty Marvel Superhero's Cookbook!


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:



I'm gonna be trying these next two this week, I think.



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!

Sue Storm and other telekinetics should be obese! Well at least some of them should be.

He'll be right around with a pitcher of Mai Tais, but first, he's gotta put some Barry White on the 8-Track player?

Eww at their butter substitute.

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.

I usually see Joe Giella credited as an inker in seventies' comics, both Marvel and DC. Here is his Wikipedia bio, and here is an extensive list of credits for him at the Grand Comic Book Database.

I usually associate his name with a very light, feathery line style and smooth blacks. Here is the one entry we've got under the creator: Joe Giella tag, though I'm sure if you looked for 70's Justice League you'd find a lot of his stuff.

So much phallic imagery,

I don't know where to start! Out of Cap, Galactus, Thing, and Thor, Panther is the only one who doesn't look like he'd have to deep throat his snack.
Soup to NUT? (adding Doom's name to the end of that just makes it worse) Don't even need to touch that one.
And I sure as hell am not touching whatever it is that Strange seems to be magically urinating in.
Damn Spiderman's enthusiastic about protecting the noms!
And lastly from the preview image: Iron Man: "Salad! -as in 'toss my'. Get to work!"

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?

I have some suggestions for the cabbage roll recipe, actually, based loosely upon a family recipe. (Three quarters of my ancestry is from Poland and Czechoslovakia, and I've made my grandma's holubky recipe with my dad a bunch of times.)

Cabbage rolls actually tend to taste better if you use tomato sauce rather than condensed soup - homemade is best, but most not-too-chunky pasta sauces work nicely also. I'd personally suggest a canned sauce such as Hunt's (yes, I'm suggesting a particular brand, because I've used that one specifically and I know it works well, but feel free to substitute in your favorite).

Steaming the cabbage leaves works better than outright boiling them. I mean, what the recipe suggests sounds halfway between steaming and boiling - err toward steaming so they don't get overcooked and completely fall apart. You also don't have to use only the biggest leaves; if you want to make a bigger batch of stuffed cabbage, you can use most of the cabbage aside from the very innermost leaves near the core, just lay the leaf down flat and slice off the excess of the thick part of the spine after steaming it but before filling so it'll roll smoothly.

You can use uncooked rice as long as you keep a little bit of water in the pot to keep things from drying up and don't drain out any extra moisture that accumulates (use a lid on the pot!) - and you'll have to cook it longer if you do that, just keep an eye out for when the meat and rice are both cooked through.

Put the innermost cabbage leaves that are too small to use for the actual rolls on the bottom of the pot to keep everything from burning! And for crying out loud, don't use onion flakes if you can get ahold of a fresh onion, unless you can't stand to cut the onion (that's my absolute least favorite part of the whole process admittedly); use between an eighth and a quarter of a medium vidalia onion or similar per pound of meat, and be sure to cut it finely.

*re-reads recipe* Toothpicks to keep them from unrolling is good. OMG do not use a freaking frying pan, that won't be deep enough even if you're only making less than a dozen with a standard recipe. You know that medium-size saucepan you use for making hardboiled eggs? Use that unless you're planning on making a lot, in which case dig out the big soup pot. Even if there is extra space at the top of the pot, that's better than using a frying pan unless what you call a frying pan is a hell of a lot taller than what I call a frying pan. Make sure to cover them completely with sauce, also. Add water if needed, add more sauce if needed. Also, you can add some kielbasa sausage (or an approximate beef equivalent if you don't eat pork) to the pot as well; it tastes quite good served with cabbage rolls.

...Yep, I think that's all I have to say right now. Happy cooking!

*looks at how much space the 'comment' filled with suggestions took up* Wow, I am such a loser. But maybe some S_D members will make really yummy cabbage rolls now.

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

Anyone here ever thrown flour on a fire? Cause...."smother" doesn't seem to describe that accurately.

Too bad they didn't really have a handle on Wanda's powers when this was done, as having a cook who can alter probability is totally the way to go in any kitchen.

Anyone notice how the illustration of the 'Americana Hero' looks conspicuously yummier than the actual recipe? I mean, maybe it's just 'cause I don't like mustard, so I doubt that I'd appreciate that sandwhich in any case, but still - look at that hero sandwich Cap's holding. Doesn't that look good? Let's see, there's lettuce... tomatoes... what is that he's munching on, a meatball? So, OK, a meatball sub with lettuce and tomatoes; that doesn't sound too bad. From my limited experience with such things, there's probably a cheese sauce, too - mmm. Instead, if we follow the recipe, we'll get a ham and cheese (BOILED ham, no less - vas is das 'boiled ham'? That sounds DISGUSTING!) sub spread with a margarine-mustard (I'd change that to butter, but it still doesn't sound good) mixture and put in the oven wrapped in foil. (I call shenanigans! Don't wrap the damn thing in foil; preheat the oven to broil while you're making the sandwich, and put it under the broiler for two or three minutes - that'll melt the cheese, anyway.) How does Captain America get a delicious meatball sub while enforcing this ham and cheese margarine-mustard thing on us? IT"S NOT FAIR!
That being said, Dr. Strange's stew actually sounds pretty good, and the muffin recipe sounds all right. I'm hungry for more! (Actually, now I'm just hungry, period.)

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!"
