Back in 1988, Marvel ran a competition to create a new mutant character, with the prize being that they would feature in a Marvel comic... sort of like a low rent version of the 1980's "Dial H for Hero" (Which I must make a post on soon). There were Junior and a Senior sections.

The Senior winner was Tom "Alchmey" Jones, who showed up in an X-Factor story (with art by Art Adams, and about gold-greedy trolls trying to use his transmutation powers for their own ends) and the Junior winner (in a story with art by Sal Velluto) is this character....

The debut of... Lighttrakker! )

Well, we've had some serious stuff on here lately, and that's fine and dandy of course, but I believe in leavening that mix with some fun, and in this case, it's the adventures of what have to count as the youngest team of superheroes ever, their shapeshifting living spaceship and their magical alien space horsey who thinks Earth should survive because of "Alice in Wonderland".

From 1984, and a longbox it took me a while to find, comes, issue 1 of...



(Approximately 12 pages from a 36 page issue, and three panels from #3)

Saving their parents - and the world - in their jim-jams! )

Really? Really.  )

And for legality, three Power Pack scans, of Franklin Richard being adorable, and Leech making me want to cry.

Power Pack 27. )

Hopefully this fixed the cuts.  Sorry about that.

I resized the scans.  Bit of a Goldilocks problem.  They're readable now without being huge.  Sorry for my fail.  *offers up ice cream*

Power Pack's pretty much the kid-friendly package of Marvel you can let your kids read, which I guess was what my dad thought of so he bought quite a lot of Power Pack comics back in the day for me to read.

I mean, space ponies, magical space ponies that bestowed powers on kids (Animorphs has a suspiciously similar origin, hm) and evil Snarks - snake lizard people!

It's so adorable and family friendly fun!

Not really )

PS: Btw tell me if you guys want scans to be a little bigger next time. I'm not using my normal laptop when I'm using the scanner to post things, and I'm not sure what's a more comfortable resolution for the majority of you to see the scans. Personally, it's a little small on my side, but it might be perfectly legible for you guys so I don't want to go overboard on the scan sizes.

A webcomic done by Gurihiru, a Japanese artist team best known for their work on POWER PACK, it's a very irreverent take on the Marvel Universe, if the characters all lived in the same apartment building.

This installment is very similar to the previous one, but with Deadpool swapped out for Iceman.

I think quite a few people have been waiting to see some of the characters that pop up in this installment.

In this second part, the cast gets twice as big and 5000x cuter.

This webcomic has been floating around so long I'm surprised nobody ever translated it.

Done by Gurihiru, a Japanese artist team best known for their work on POWER PACK, it's a very irreverent take on the Marvel Universe, if the characters all lived in the same apartment building.

I've translated the title liberally as HEROES OF THE H-MANSION, but as with a lot of things in this project, I've taken a lot more liberties than I deserve. If there's any real groaners in here, I may well have put them in overzealously.
