In honor of the upcoming Wonder Woman film (which I am praying to the old gods and the new is good) here are some random moments from the original Wonder Woman series.

Ropes, loincloths, manlings all under the cut )

Isaiah Curwen is also known as Silver Dagger. You know religious people who worry that Harry Potter and Dungeons & Dragons will cause children to get into the occult? Curwen is a little like that, only he is a former bishop who kills sorcerers. With magic. (Because that's not hypocritical at all.)

Some of this I've posted before. Also, some MCU speculation is included.

Some movie spoilers after the cut. )

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY released some pictures from the Benedict Cumberbatch DOCTOR STRANGE movie. Rachel McAdams will be in it, but will she be playing Morgana Blessing? And who is Morgan Blessing, you may ask?

"Morgana Blessing was the sort of woman that Doc would have had a relationship with, in his previous career as a high-priced surgeon. She was the Earthly love, in contrast with the ethereal, extradimensional Clea. All the regular readers loved Clea, of course, but the relationship she and Doc had was not exactly an enlightened one. If Clea had just been Doc's lover that would have been okay, but she'd also become his student, his disciple. It was a case of 'I love you, Clea.' 'And I love you, Master.' And not in a sweet, innocent, I Dream of Jeanie way, either. Not a healthy relationship, not healthy at all." - Roger Stern

When Stephen met Morgana... )

I'm perhaps a little surprised that this title hasn't had more coverage here, I'm not saying a female team should HAVE to be featured but I thought it might have been, especially as it's quite enjoyable (Well, IMHO)


A new balance is achieved )

"The Mystic Hands of Doctor Strange" #1 also came out this last week. It's an 48-pager in black and white, featuring stories of the good doctor back before his recent demotion.

Just two pages from the lead story, "The Cure", by Kieron Gillen and Frazer Irving.

Roger Stern's run on DOCTOR STRANGE began with the introduction of Morgana (one N, not two) Blessing, who eventually became Stephen Strange's girlfriend. Roger Stern himself explains:

"Morgana Blessing was the sort of woman that Doc would have had a relationship with, in his previous career as a high-priced surgeon. She was the Earthly love, in contrast with the ethereal, extradimensional Clea. All the regular readers loved Clea, of course, but the relationship she and Doc had was not exactly an enlightened one. If Clea had just been Docs lover that would have been okay, but shed also become his student, his disciple. It was a case of I love you, Clea. And I love you, Master. And not in a sweet, innocent, I Dream of Jeanie way, either. Not a healthy relationship, not healthy at all."

The first meeting, and a panel from the ILLUMINATI miniseries after the cut.

The Superman/Destiny post mentioned using "the church as villains" in superhero comics. So I'm posting some pages featuring Silver Dagger, a Dr. Strange villain who used to be part of the Vatican. Steven Gerber wrote this story, so references/homages to H.P. Lovecraft abound. Frank Brunner and Dick Giordano did the art.

What is a grimoire anyway? )

The recent death of former Philippines President Corazon Aquino got me thinking of a line from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #20, when Clea finds ruling the Dark Dimension can be a hassle.

Magical fairness in action. )
