Seeing the recent re-acquirement of the Star Wars comics license by Marvel, let us look back at their first go at making Star Wars a thing. (Also, this is my first post here, let me know if I did anything wrong!)

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.

So I've been trying to post scans of the early days of some Marvel ladies. I've kinda fallen behind on that, but someone requested Tigra a while ago, and her story is really interesting. I have a feeling that today many readers see Tigra as furrry fetish fuel, given her stint on the West Coast Avengers where animal lust made her work her way through the team, and the fact that this is the internet. But Tigra's origins can be traced back to 1972, arguably the first Year of Women at Marvel.

And I mean, just look at her culturally relevant zingers!
