Hi folks!

MC2 (Marvel Comics 2) was Tom DeFalco's baby, spun off from an issue of "What If?" where Peter and Mary Jane's daughter May "Mayday" Parker inherited some of her father's powers and became Spider-Girl. It was meant to appeal to younger readers (but not children as such) by featuring old-school superheroics with newer characters.

(The same idea of attracting newer readers later gave us the Ultimate universe.)

The story took place in the modern day, but with the then-current events in the main Marvel Universe having taken place fifteen years before. Most of the older superheroes had retired or gone missing, so it was up to a new generation to save the world.



Seven pages of twenty-three, plus one from the preview of J2.

Second Coming! )

Electro has a rather odd supervillain origin story: electrical engineer is working on power lines, gets struck by lightning, gains electricity powers, decides to become a super-villain. Basically, he could throw lighting bolts but fought one of the few characters fast enough to dodge them.

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.

Marvel says that Thor villain Lorelei will appear on AGENTS OF SHIELD. Lorelei is Amora the Enchantress' sister and is even more of a... bad person than her sister.

Sisterly advice )

From THOR #386. This is when the Rainbow Bridge had been shattered by Surtur during the Simonson run.

Since Stunner's returning next week in Superior Spider-Man, I thought I'd post about her role in the resurrection of Doctor Octopus, and what happened to her. It's a little bit of a follow-up to my last post where we were introduced to Stunner and saw Otto get killed.

with a bang *and* a whimper.

You'll recall that we left our merry band on the ropes during the rumble in the tumble(weeds) with Superboy, the Ravagers, Harvest and his lackeys, and Capt. Adym and Agent Lure of Echo all tussling with Daggor and the worldkiller he's building. Adym and Harvest, over the objections of all the other factions, planned to use Adym's time bubble to go back an hour before Daggor's forcefield went up and blow everything to Hell - killing billions, but saving quintillions, by their rather loose math.

We rejoin our battle already in progress, as Harvest sends Adym off in the bubble.

I do hope you won't allow the recent unpleasantness to taint your impressions of the 21st century! )
And we close out with the tagline, NEVER THE END!

So since they're still stuck in the 21st century, now can we start integrating them with the rest of the DCnU? I still miss Oz and the Orchid Clinic doc, who's still got hypertaxis virus mutation sufferers/fatalities all over the place. Wherever this team turns up next, I'd like to see some of that kind of supporting cast relationship-building happen, since they never took the time in their own title's 2-year run to do it properly.

...I know I sound like I don't like this title, but honestly I do. I nitpick because I love. I just got the trade of the first six issues and reading it like a book, I can see so many missed opportunities and so much potential here. It may not have suited my vision of a 21st-century Legion book, but I'm awfully sorry to see it go.

- especially if, like me, you haven't been reading other DCnU titles like Ravagers or Superboy. Four pages each from LL #14 and #15, out this week. I didn't post any of last month's ish at the time because I couldn't figure out where to even begin summarizing this hot mess. Oh, multi-team context-free melee issues, how I haven't missed you in this title! But oh yes, IT IS ON.

Hi ho! it's time once again for perletwo to bring you some new Legion Lost and to speak of herself in the third person for no good reason. Not a bad issue, #13 - some dangling plot threads begin to weave together at last.

You may recall, when last we left our Losties in #12, they had just evaded the military black ops metahuman hit squad out to capture them, courtesy of Gates, who told them they were headed for Krygyzistan. The hit squad, meanwhile, had gained an appreciation for the Legion via a telepathic time-share with the 30th-century bad guy Alastor, now an energy being.

But orders is orders, so the Losties are now Gates'ing from city to city to throw the hit squad off their trail. They've taken refuge in an abandoned amusement park when suddenly Tellus cries out in agony, as if millions of voices cried out in terror...and then...were silenced. Wildfire takes off into the black to investigate, rudely blowing off Dawnstar's offer of help. Unfortunately he finds something the cover lines describe thusly:



Back planetside, Yera again makes her pitch for going after Harvest, the big bad of the godawful The Culling crossover event. Tyroc points out there are no historical records of a 31st-century criminal operating in the 21st century or heading an organization like N.O.W.H.E.R.E. "What do you know that we don't?"

Yera holds her tongue, but cues up the flashbacks. )

"Next issue: SUPERBOY...the RAVAGERS...and HARVEST join the fray!!!" Which I guess means we'll be treated to another big multifaction donnybrook issue that kills any narrative momentum we've picked up. *sigh*
