In the posts for MS. MARVEL #21, I commented how teen superheroes get their own "Flash Thompson." But each creative team tries to make that "Flash Thompson" more than just "Flash Thompson."

[personal profile] arilou_skiff said "The weird thing is that well... Flash Thompson has been more than Flash Thompson for ages. Ever since before he went to Vietnam."

THOR #374 has a Thor moment that might not be awesome or whatever, but I still think it pretty cool. Mainly because how Thor reacts to some very bad news. Guest-starring Angel, Cyclops and Marvel Girl!

Quoting Poe at the worst times. )

We've wondered about Jean Grey's telepathic ethics. So here's another example of her using her telepathy in a way that is ethically questionable.

Spectacular Spider-Man #197, 198 and the first few pages of #199 are a team-up of Spider-Man and the original X-Men. Some time ago, Professor Aaron Power wanted Charles Xavier to restore his son, Matthew. Things did not go well.

Making Falcon partners with Captain America was a good idea. Trying to discuss race relations in a superhero comic in the 1970s was also a good idea. Yet, the same thing happened to Falcon *and* Sam Wilson a lot: An African-American character would call him a "sellout" and other nasty names.

Two pages from CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON #151.

Did anyone read that Harriet Beecher Stowe novel? )

When last we left Jessica Drew she had either accidentally killed her first love after leaving the high evolutionary, or awoken from an 11 year coma, and confronted by General Wyndam. Six of one half a dozen of another I guess. Now it is time to learn how she joined Hydra and found love with her fellow operative Jared.

2 Pages of Marvel Spotlight #32, 7 Pages, 2 panels of Origins #2.

HAIL HYDRA! )
