I'm not particularly big on Marvel, but one of my pals on the Internet seems heads-over-heels about Silver Sable for some reason. As a birthday present for him, I've seen fit to post Sable's debut story here, an issue which he does not own.

Personally, I barely know who Sable is - the most I can gleam is that she's some kind of mercenary who was kind of a flash-in-the-pan hit during the '90s "bad girl" era - but this story went down smoothly enough. I'd certainly like to know more about her, if anyone has any recommendations...?

Well Spider-Verse keeps on trucking on, and the overall attitude of grimdarkness seems to have even ensnared Spider-Girl in its web. However, there is still hope: she's appearing in Spider-Verse team-up, once more in the capable hands of Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz. As a result, I've decided to post my very first entry on s_d to share in the joy that is Spider-Girl. (I've endeavoured to keep it within the bounds of the rules, and I apologise in advance if I've inadvertently broken any or otherwise mess up).

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.

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.
