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! )

"I dusted off my old Elaine Pagles and Edith Hamilton and really did my best to try to understand what these Gods MEANT, and from there tried to extrapolate who they would be as characters. Which is really just a long-winded way of saying that I think Gods of antiquity are immanently relatable to readers because they are, after all, representative of what’s inside of us. They are our lusts and our anger and our fear and our desire for power. (Of course, I focused on a lot of the ugly and destructive things because this is that kind of book.) Once I worked all that out, the Gods end up being the simplest characters of all to write. They’re pure power, pure id. They aren’t conflicted or uncertain. They are exactly what they are, and that, I think, is very compelling." - Mike Costa
