This is my first post. I read the rules but if I messed up, just let me know! :)

Today is not only Memorial Day in the U.S., but the 100th birthday of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th President of the United States. He served his country during World War II and in the White House, and has made his share of appearances in comics over the years. He met Superman more than one time in the comics, and Supergirl, too, when her cousin revealed her to the world in 1962.

I also recall a Marvel Invaders comic in which a bad guy was attempting to kidnap a young war veteran running for Congress in 1946. Why? To rule the world in the future, of course, when that young man became President! :)

Anyway, I wanted to post something as it's a pretty sure bet none of us will be around for his 200th birthday! ;)

For John F. Kennedy's centennial, here is a repost:

WHAT IF (Vol 1) #4 is one of the few stories (if not the only story) that turned out to be part of the "actual history" of the Marvel Universe. And it involves John F. Kennedy almost getting replaced by a robot.

A robot duplicate of the senatorial candidate! )

As you will hopefully have noticed, there's a movie opening at the end of the week, and it's something of a big deal.

It's the first big screen female led superhero movie (Important addendum: following the first couple of posts below, let me amend that to "the first big screen female led superhero movie of the modern age" as I had overlooked a couple) and the first one devoted to one of the first female superheroes. I refer of course, to Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot.

The reviews have been universally positive, and those of you following her various creators on social media will have noticed that they all LOVED it.

Scans_Daily owes a lot to Diana of Themyscira, and this, we feel should be appropriate to reflect that, but honouring her with... well, it was originally going to be a "Week of Wonder", but nah, Diana deserves more so we're having a "World of Wonder instead

We're interested in seeing ALL the Amazon's who have contributed, so Diana is a given of course, but also Donna, Cassie, Hippolyta and Artemis, heck if you have an Io, Nubia or Phillipus scene that you want to showcase, bring it on!

Mortal associates like Steve Trevor, Cyndi Meyer and Etta Candy or scenes with her villains like the Cheetah, Dr Cyber or even these delightful scamps from Villainy Incorporated



So let's see lots of posts folks, Diana deserves it and we don't want to disappoint her, do we?

The Arrival is a silent graphic novel about a man who leaves his family behind, to go and find work in a distant city to provide a better life for them. As he tries to adapt to life in this strange new city he meets others people and learns their stories. It's a beautiful book and this is the part which stand out to me the most. Also I should probably mention I previously uploaded these scans to my Tumblr.

First off I'd like to draw your attention to this novel on Previews: https://previewsworld.com/Catalog/JUN172273

She will become one of the world's greatest heroes: Wonder Woman. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law - risking exile - to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world. Alia is a Warbringer - a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery. Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

That sounds like an interesting take Diana's origin with this Alia in place of Steve... I will read it!


This is also an interesting take on Wonder Woman's origin (Supergirl doing a comic for June Moone's art class in DC Superhero Girls: Out of the Bottle #2).
