Ah Hitler, if any historical personality has appeared in Superhero comics more I'll be surprised (although there was a brief time when Nixon appeared in a lot of stuff, such as an actual supervillain in Captain American around the time of Watergate). Naturally as the cause of so much evil, he's been the target of the wrath of many a superhero over the years, but due to him being a real person actual depictions of him getting killed for his crimes are relatively rare.

In light of the recent posts from[personal profile] history79 I figured I'd share the first 'Marvel Zombies' miniseries which branched off from 'Ultimate Fantastic Four'.

'Marvel Zombies' was a pretty fun idea at first. I think Marvel deserves some kudos for letting their characters be used in such a horrific fashion and Kirkman really went wild with the concept in ways that Millar did not. Plus they got to 'own' the term when prior Marvel Zombies was a pejorative term for Marvel fans.

Of course, Marvel is as Marvel does and they ran the franchise into the ground. They've released five versions of the same hardcover with different covers for collectors. There have been over 50 issues at this point that feature the zombies in one form or another. I think at one point there was a "Marvel Apes vs Marvel Zombies" miniseries to get an idea of how far it's gone.

Disclaimer: The following story is very gory and features tons of zombie-related violence. But you didn't need me to tell you that, did you?

This was a really hard choice I was remembering how many great Else Worlds there where in the crop of annuals from '94, and I already posted my favourite What If to use for favourite male character... This one ranks a little bit lower for me but it's still a neat concept.

The Beyonder and Galactus kill each other and Reed Richards in the final battle of the Secret Wars leaving the heroes trapped on that strange world. 25 years later there is peace, and a new generation of super powered youngsters.

Not much has changed as to who my favorite female character is; it's still Jessica Jones. She's a type of female character that we don't really see that much in that as the series begins she's basically in a really bad place. She was a superhero but not a really good one. She drinks. She smokes. She swears.

That being said my view is still that the character -- even though she's gotten her act together with a marriage and a kid -- has kind of suffered with her being made a supporting character on non-MAX titles. There's a rawness to the original series that you can't really get across in a mainstream title. The swearing is only a part of it.

Still, the original Alias title remains one of my favorite runs and here is the first issue. If you like it give the other posts I did a whirl and maybe even buy the trades.

AVENGERS X-MEN AXIS BOOK ONE #3 has a dramatic ending. And someone breaks the first rule of the Marvel Universe: Captain America is never wrong.
Also, someone goes through a growth spurt.

(Triggers: multiple mentions of suicide, with a character actually being encouraged to kill himself and wanting to die. He doesn't, for what that's worth. Also trigger warnings for imprisonment involving prolonged sensory deprivation and starvation--while those things aren't among the trigger tags, I can certainly imagine how they could be triggers for anybody having gone through certain ordeals. Finally, there is some dialogue here which could potentially bring back memories of child abuse.)

One page from Captain America #367, two pages from a five page backup story in Captain America #369 and seven pages from Captain America #370.

Scans have already been posted of Magneto vs. the Red Skull (or to be more accurate, Magneto hunting the Skull while having to deal with every obstacle and distraction the latter can throw at him). The links to those images seem to be broken, and I thought of posting new images, but decided to play it safe and wait until I got the okay from a mod here. For now, I will just post what happened afterwards.

To briefly recap: after meeting the Red Skull, Magneto wants to know if he's the same Skull who was with the Nazis in World War Two, which the Skull admits. Even though the Skull didn't actually run the death camps, he still willingly served Hitler and Magneto wants to know what he has to say for himself. The Skull stalls by giving him a "We're not really so different" speech, since both of them want to see their respective "master race" inherit the Earth, before trying to kill him. Long story short, it doesn't work, the Skull tries to get away but fails, and the issue ends with this page:

Marvel have a LOT of publicity going for their Guardians of the Galaxy characters, and with the likes of Chris Pratt (who kept the Star Lord costume so he could make Hospital visits to sick kids in it), some very good PR, so I can only applaud them for this
