I’ve only read a few issues, but near as I can tell, she was kind of an idiot. Or maybe just a jerk. She also spent a lot of time…… Continue reading A to Z: Victoria Hand

A to Z: Tim G-U-nn

A selected list of people I consider actual real additional parents of mine: Captain Picard, Amanda Grayson, Professor X, Harriet Cooper, and Tim Gunn. “That’s all well and good,” you may say, “but Tim Gunn is NOT a comic book character.” But as of Marvel’s 2009 Models, Inc. miniseries, he totally is.

A to Z: Northstar

Northstar is another Marvel hero, originally of the Canadian team Alpha Flight, later of the X-Men. His powers have to do with superspeed, but without the mystical associations of the Flash. He’s more of the Superman type than anything else, by virtue of his secondary powers — invulnerability, flight, etc. Mostly those are related to…… Continue reading A to Z: Northstar

The Sunday Post – Marvel Cinematic Universe

The happenings — Y’all, I finished Agent Carter, and it is awesome. Peggy Carter is the best of everything. More please. My inner monologue is currently in Peggy’s accent, I pretend I’m Peggy at work (reports become codes, web searches become investigations…) and I may have already bought some clothes just because they looked like…… Continue reading The Sunday Post – Marvel Cinematic Universe
