I feel like some of New Mutants #40 might have been posted before, but I didn't see it in the tags. Maybe it was in sd 1.0.

Anyhow, back when Magneto was running Xavier's school (and everything was made of awesome), Emma Frost manipulated Mags into sending the New Mutants to her Academy. When Magneto realized his mistake, he and Warlock rushed off to Massachusetts to "rescue" them, and Emma called the authorities, who sent The Avengers out to ambush him (he was still on everyone else's shit list at the time).

When the New Mutants got wind of what was going on, Illyana decided to take action.

Be cool, boss, I'll be back in a jiff )

The run-up to the Independence Day holiday seems like a good time to post some Captain America stories, don't you think? I'm not sure if we've posted the classic "Cap for President" story from Captain America #250 on this community, so instead let's have the next two issues, guest-starring a favorite Cap villain.



Seven pages of twenty-two from #251, five pages of seventeen from #252, one page of five from a backup feature and an ad.

Remember Roxxon? )

And as we casually stroll into the setting sun, your thoughts and comments?
SKJAM!

eta: Yes, we have posted Cap #250, here: http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/442041.html#cutid1

In 1968 Marvel created a fantastic character called Yuri Brevlov, who was basically the USSR's Nick Fury. He and Fury had a Team Up in the Incredible Hulk. It was awesome. Then, Marvel pretty much forgot about him (I could only track down a small appearance in the 80s).


Marvel needs to bring this man back. I will show you why.

Andy "Alpha" Maguire, that kid from the Dan Slott plotline from last year that had everyone rolling their eyes, is currently the star of his own miniseries, written by Joshua Hale Fialkov. Some of the guys at the SA comics forum mentioned that Fialkov was doing a pretty good job redeeming the character, so I checked it out.

What I wasn't expecting was a moment with Thor that struck me as pretty fun.

I've always been a DC Comics fan. (In large part because when I was a little girl I wanted to be Wonder Woman.) I never read Marvel comics before falling in love with movie Loki. Since then I've read some comics with Loki in them, but just diving into Marvel is frustrating for fans of Loki as played by Tom Hiddleston. In most of the comics, Loki is a straight-up villain whose motivation is that he's evil. He's still Machiavellian, but missing (usually) is the heartbreak, the mad struggle for power and identity, and the complex, intense relationship with Thor.

So I'm compiling a list of comics that are of particular interest to movie Loki fans. I'll add to this list whenever I discover more.

Despite being a tie in to an event comic, Avengers Academy's tie in to Fear Itself is honestly one of the best things to come out of both. I'll also be posting another honestly good thing to come out of Fear Itself, an issue of Secret Avengers written by Nick Spencer. Because it's taking place in Washington DC like the events here, and is just that awesome.

This arc serves as a culmination of a lot of what Academy was about and may just be the best arc in the entire series. Yeah, it's downhill after this. But it's one hell of a high note.

Get your hankerchiefs ready, this is gonna be one hell of a tearjerker.

It also continues the trend these posts have had of "Academy showing up Arena at its own game" as we see death handled maturely and with peak drama.
For those that managed to miss this event (lucky you), )

I love it when writers really explore the traumas that motivate villains, show the lurking nightmares distorting their minds, and push the demons in them to the extreme. I mean stuff like Kraven's Last Hunt, or the brilliant Maximum Carnage. Seeing as how Doctor Octopus is currently the star of the Superior Spider-Man, I think it's the right time to take a walk in his trouble mind:

Now, back to the fun of Avengers Academy.  The series as a whole did not have a lot of tie in material.  Some of the kids appeared in Wasp & Ant-Man, and they also played a role in Marvel Universe vs. Avengers.  We already covered the former, and we're not touching the later for several reasons: 1) It's honestly very bad, 2) It's an AU, 3) They barely do anything there, 4) the art is horrible, 5) They keep drawing the wrong Hazmat (yes, there are two characters named Hazmat at Marvel, the other one was created for the crappy Rise of the Imperfects video game.

But there are a few others, and we'll be going through them here. Avengers Academy Giant Size #1 and Amazing Spider-Man #661-662.  Also, we have #13, 14 and 14.1 of Academy.  Most of these are just side-stories and setup for what's to come. 

Oh, and a dance. Because stress.

In reply from a request from [personal profile] werehawk , I've done some digging through my longboxes, the local library and the invaluable resources at tfwiki to produce this profile of one of more interesting humans to interact with the Transformers in many, many years...

The fact that she appears to be wearing nothing more than a layer of shredded tinfoil should not lead one to underestimate Josie Beller, better known as...

I don't know if I'd say that Storm is my favorite female character (mostly because I'm not sure I'd say I have "favorites" per se) but she's certainly up there. And since there were requests for Storm scans, I'm going to share some scans of her very earliest appearances, so you can know she was awesome from the very beginning. I'll also be interspersing it with other scans from the same issues that amuse me.

Onward! )
