I thought scans from this annual were already posted here - I remember seeing previews somewhere but they don't seem to be up here.

Anyway, the sure-fire way to get me to buy a Spider-Man comic on the spot is to have Uncle Ben in it.

Included below the cut are two pages out of the 40-or-something pages of the annual from this year. I don't know if there are other earlier stories that showed what life would be like if Spider-Man didn't exist, but I liked the random earthquake-time-hopping aspect of it (and Uncle Ben's and Peter's interactions are ♥).

Since it was my idea, I really should make a contribution for the My First week. It isn't going to be too interesting for me to write about the first comics that I read, since they're collections of Peanuts, or Calvin and Hobbes or Asterix or Tintin that I devoured at the time, but don't have any abiding affinity for. My first dips into ongoing DCU and Marvel titles were with Civil War and 52, but I'm going to write about my first ongoing solo book. It's also the book that gave me my favourite character and one that I've actually identified with.
We are, of course, at Ms. Marvel #12 )

Because I am insufferably cool, I bought myself a hip t-shirt - Threadless'Every night I have the same dream )
The shirt also happily reminds me of Ms. Marvel vs. the Targoths )Still, this story is one that I will explore more of in the future. Like... the first week of March?

** Don't ask me why it's Issue 3 vol.1 and not Vol.1 issue 3

I've done a series of little Ms. Marvel vignettes with some cool bits from her second solo series.

The main reason why I'm into Carol is based on her life post House of M, leading into her Best of the Best arc.

Carol Danvers is an alcoholic. She's stuck as a B or C-list Avenger, just pottering about in the superhero leagues. She spends her free time on the couch, watching old movies and eating Ben and Jerry's. Her life is not going the way that she intended.

Then, Wanda Maximoff recreates the world and Carol Danvers arrives in the the House of M (which is probably my favourite Marvel "event" since the event cycle started). Carol is the number 1 sapien superhero in the world. Captain Marvel is successful and popular. She's got everything that she ever wanted.

But that was yesterday )

Before I post the Best of the Best opener and the Best I can be closer to Ms. Marvel v.2, I wanted to post something ridiculous (in the good way)- Storyteller.

Storyteller is a boy called Gavin, introduced in the Binary special, who has reality creation powers. He's the product of AIM experiments. Originally, he was limited to reading stories and then creating those stories in reality. Now, he can imagine whatever he wants.

At the end of the his first appearance, Gavin escaped from AIM and from Ms. Marvel. But, a cell of AIM is tracking him, so Ms. Marvel goes after him.

He and his friend Rich are "playing" on pirate ships in the middle of the ocean when Carol turns up. Rich tells her that Gavin always cheats to win (because he can) and that Rich just wants to go home to his family. Carol confronts Gavin and he sends her back to Manhattan. Sort of.

The Storyteller project is next seen in the Wa of the Marvels storyline, where AIM has a series of MODOK/Storyteller babies in jars that help Carol.

I want to post some more Ms. Marvel stuff and it's difficult to find something that works as its own little scene with a decent amount of context and shows why Carol Danvers is my favourite solo Marvel character.

I've already posted Carol Danvers versus Ghazi Rashid and The Ascension Teaser on Scans_Daily before.

This is the beginning of the culmination of Carol and Ghazi's story and takes place immediately after the Ascension teaser

And I-ee-i want to thank you. For giving me the best day-ay of my life )

There was going to be a lot more commentary on this, then I realised that it's late, I'm tired, I have work tomorrow and Transhuman won't read itself. So, adieu for now.

In the process of going through my bookcase and my shortboxes for books to make another big post (this one is inspired by Word Balloon), I rediscovered Secret Invasion: Captain Marvel (though it doesn't include Captain Marvel actually in Secret Invasion, where he took on the Thunderbolts.)

This story follows on from Civil War, when Captain Marvel returned and leads into Secret Invasion. For me, this was a really good time for some quality Marvel books, though I know that I'm not in the majority in this opinion.

Art in this is by Lee Weeks (last seen in ASM's Juggernaut story) and it's written by Ms. Marvel author Brian Reed (last seen in ASM's American Son)

The book starts with media interest in Mar-vell's return in the superhero hoe-down in Manhattan in Civil War #7. We then get Mar-Vell being attacked at the Louvre, where he's examining Charles Le Brun's entry of Alexander the Great into Babylon

And now, the good stuff )

Unless I'm mistaken, we're missing a tag for Captain Mar-vell. We've not yet had a Captain Mar-vell tag yet. How intriguing.

As it appears to be the first day of the 30 Days of scans event, I bring you my favourite female character. Ms. Marvel. Carol Danvers.

Except, this isn't Carol Danvers. Well, it is. It's just not our Carol Danvers. This is Other Carol, the woman who should have, were I writing it, been the Ms. Marvel in the Dark Avengers, or at least the final villain in Reed's Ms. Marvel run instead of Mystique.

This is from #9 of Reed's Ms. Marvel, back when he gave a fudge for the title. Art is by the late Mike Wieringo. It's just after the Civil War arc that probably killed most people's good feelings towards the title.

The context is that Rogue appears at Carol's apartment, demanding an explanation from Carol as to why she attacked her. They find a Warbird in Carol's apartment and the three of them fight. Then, after fighting, we get to questions.

That could have been me )

Schmevil and I were talking Ms. Marvel the other day and the notion of reintroducing one of our favourite characters to the community. I'm not that interested in posting large chunks of Carol's history, so I'll stick to some of the cooler moments from her Brian Reed solo series.

We begin after Secret Invasion, with the Ascension teaser )
