Jamie McKelvie posted some preview pages of Young Avengers #1 showing Kate and Noh-Varr (I shall dub them "Kano." And yes, I know that is the name of a villain in Mortal Kombat. That you could make that a portmanteau couple name is amusing to me.)




(Acknowledgement that Civil War: Young Avengers/Runaways happened. Although Kate is only referencing by name the characters who are still on the team.)



(This same creative team gave us Phonogram. Can you tell?)

This is nice, but I preferred Noh-Varr when he was woobie, destroyer of worlds all the time, either making speeches about how everyone and everything sucks or held in very constricting, very creepy bondage.
Part of me says "I should be ashamed of such blatant fetishizing"...

Seriously though, this is a nice, simple representation of YA romance. Something that rapidly becomes deranged and bizarre in most media. We'll have to see how it goes.


Also: Noh-Varrr, be a gentleman! Get the Woman some Damn Coffee!

I have a similar problem...

Noh-varr sounds EXACTLY like Kid!Loki talking about modern tech. The guy has been seen watching TV from multiple parallel dimensions ON PANEL.

Having him squee over MoTown seems a bit OOC. :)

Anyone interested in this should read Keiron Gillen's tumblr on the subject

That’s Noh-Varr to you.

That’s Noh-Varr to anyone.

I had to start with Marvel Boy lust because of the news that Bowie was returning to the world stage today. He remains Jamie and my primary influence on the character’s visual and mood (specifically, in the Man Who Fell To Earth period, though there’s some Ziggy too). It’s not the first and won’t be the last. When a man has the chameleon aesthetic he works like that.

(The most successful previous one was our SIEGE%3A LOKI where Bowie in glam-mode was our model for our Loki%2C all nail-varnish eyeliner and the seductive potential of they-call-it-evil-we-call-it-us. Because we were in the Loki-should-be-hot camp way before Hiddleston brought anyone with any taste whatsoever to that particular yard.)

I’ll come back to sex as it’s important with Marvel Boy.

[snip]

Noh-Varr has two saving graces. Firstly, he hasn’t collapsed completely. He’s instinctively a hero – his hedonism is almost impossible to separate from a hero. Superheroism as Point-Break Surfer-Zen, world disasters as a wave to be ridden and mastered. Everything has been taken from him, and he acts like a hero anyway, because being a hero is the only thing that has ever meant anything to him.

(Random aside: Noh-Varr was totally the Wesley Crusher of his Kree ship.)

His second saving grace?

He loves Earth. He loves it in a way which us Earth dwellers may find a little embarrassing. And we find it embarrassing just because he’s seeing it with fresh eyes and we’re covered by the tar the 21st century tries to funnel into our lungs.

But Earth is amazing. Marvel Boy realises it, and he’ll die in the hope that some of us will too.

Hell, he’d die to ensure this record lived on.

He’s also hot.

Ever since our work on Phonogram, Jamie have strove to make our comics – for want of a better phrase – slash-fic-able. If you’re working in certain heroic fantasy genres, that’s part of the emotional churn. And that part is what loses the sort of person who thinks by Jamie redesigning Ms. Marvel’s costume he’s destroying the “sex-cake”.

(Oh man. Someone really did say Jamie had removed the icing from the sex-cake. Sometimes all you can do is blink when doing this gig. Blink so hard you hope your eyes open on some kind of better world. I digress.)

Anyway – point being: characters being sexy is cool but objectification in the process is bullshit. An inability to see the difference is a fundamental weakness. My wife’s in the next room watching Lord of the Rings, and I guarantee she’s thinking sexy thoughts about Aragorn. But that works without anything which annihilates him as a character, y’know? The readers mind will latch upon this stuff.

That’s how Jamie and me work.

Generally speaking.

Oh, Noh-Varr. You are the sex-cake.

From: [personal profile] practicalcat
It's a good thing that Billy and Teddy totally disposed of the whole secret identities thing and don't mind being outed as super heroes to every Tom, Dick, and Harry that their friends interact with.

Oh, wait.

Seriously Gillen? You have Kate out herself and her friends to a guy she knows from 1) him (temporarily) killing a teenager in front of them and kidnapping them to be tortured, and 2) a one night stand. SERIOUSLY?! Not to mention that she recognizes him as part of Osborn's Avengers. I'd be pretty goddamned concerned if my one night stand turned out to have been one of Osborn's Avengers, and I'm not even a super hero that he tried to have killed.

And while the view of Earth from space is a pretty awesome thing to wake up to, most people would be FREAKED OUT that they were kidnapped to outer space without their knowledge, which has just happened to Kate. Even super heroes find that worthy of freaking out over.

Also, I have no idea who this guy is, but he's not Noh-Varr. I'm sure there's a character in Marvel who's an alien and super-enthused about Earth, but Noh-Varr pretty much thinks Earth sucks like the vacuum that nature abhors.

I really wanted to be excited about this, but yeesh. I've got an equal number of complaints as there are pages in this preview, that does not bode well.

If I remember corectly Noh-varr quit the dark avengers before siege and then became part of the actual Avengers. The young avengers were also made actual Avengers so he should know them some what. (Big mansion, lots of Avengers, so not really well)
Basically he changed.
And anyway, even during the Civil war they knew Noh-varr wasn't responsible for what he did to them.

I'm slightly worried about the use of Kate, not because I have a problem with the above characterization in and of itself, but because Fraction's depiction of her in Hawkeye has been pitch perfect and I don't want there to be dissonance with a competing version.

It's interesting how this comic has actually tripped into the 'contemporary new adult' genre that's about now. Kids post high school (not necessarily post college) with sex and everything.

Bully for Kate not letting her past define her and enjoying a healthy sex life.

But lol at Noh Varr wasn't he a bad guy at a recent point of their history?

You can't trump sexual chemistry, I guess?
