SOLO AVENGERS #12 has Clint Barton, an adamantium-tipped arrow, and a gamma-powered monster. Let's see what happens. 3 1/2 pages on an 11 page story after the cut.

What makes a good villain? The extent of their evil? Their style? The complexity of their plans?

Of course it depends on the villain and the hero they are up against, though a good villain shouldn't be so one note that they can't adapt to deal with other heroes should the need arise.

Of course, every now and again you need an UBER-villain, who can target an individual (of sufficient power) or a whole pile of heroes trying to stop them.

This guy is probably my favourite of the cosmic baddies

Old Stoneface... no, not Darkseid... the other one )

(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:

I posted this two years ago but with the end of Superior on the horizon I thought it warranted a reread. It also ties into a storyline in 'Superior Spider-Man Team-up' which I will try posting soon.

Yup, Jim Starlin gave the guy who makes the Grinch look like an amateur a Christmas story... Sort of.. in this story from the 1992 Marvel Holiday Special

Each member of the 853rd century JLA is champion to a different planet in the solar system. So when the modern JLA switches places with their future counterparts, they each materialize at a different planet: Flash arrives on future Flash's homeworld of Mercury, Aquaman swims the xeno-oceans of future Aquaman's Neptune, etc.

Superman, naturally, arrives on Earth.

Greetings True Believers!

I love old-school OHMUs. I picked up a handful at Wizard-Con. I really like the art and the way they really went all-out with the bios and power descriptions.

I picked out few examples of my favorite art from the stack I bought. WARNING! 80s fashion and hair-cuts ahoy!




Wave back at Devil Dinosaur!
