Okay, so... long story short, I, a lifelong DC fan, have spent the last several weeks trying to jump into Marvel. Partly for bragging rights, partly because I'm genuinely curious as to whether Marvel has told stories DC genuinely couldn't. I've tried several jumping-on points so far: the first couple issues of The Avengers, the issues of Daredevil leading up to the legendary Frank Miller run, and a couple of the earlier DC/Marvel crossover GNs. Each of them had their moments, but none were really things I'd willingly go back to.

Then a buddy suggested that maybe I should start where it all began: with Marvel's first family. Of course, he then immediately clarified that he meant a modern take on it - preferably by someone whose name begins with "H" and rhymes with "Rickman" - but by then I'd already went and gotten myself the first ten issues of the Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four. Having read through about six of them, I remain tentatively interested in seeing where the King and his faithful self-promoter sidekick is going with all this.

Wait, this was supposed to be a short story, wasn't it? Shit. Basically, I'm looking for suggestions - any suggestions - as to which parts of the MU I should try out next. In the meantime, have this activity I shamelessly ripped off film critic and all-around hilarious Internet reviewer Tim Callahan, in which I determine which page in each of the first four FF issues best sums up what I love about the issue as a whole.

It was only when I was reading Secret Wars #7 (of 89) today that I realised who Jonathan Hickman's Namor the Submariner reminded me of
It's her )

This is Namor's bit from "Before Time Runs Out," the storyline from Avengers World that showed what happened before the time-jump in "Time Runs Out." It's written by Frank Barbiere and illustrated by Marco Checchetto.

I've lately been slowly reading through Priest's Black Panther run, and yesterday I read an arc which was rather amusing given recent event. I think I saw someone mention part of it in the comments of scans_daily recently, actually, something about sort of Illuminati like gather involved Black Panther, Doom, Magneto and Namor. It also involved T'Challa flirting with Storm way before Hudlin's run. Funny stuff.

Anyway, I hope it's not overly complicated, but it's Priest's run which tends to have a bazillion things happening at the same time and also is tough to cut to 7 pages.

Black Panther v3 #26, ~7 pages

It starts with a flashback:Read more... )

Black Panther v3 #27, 7 pages

Where international tension starts ramping out, and also the flirting:Read more... )
