Hey everyone! Lately, there’s been a lot of negativity in the Marvel comics fandom (not unfounded, just a lot) and we could use a little bit of positivity. So the first week of September, for 7 days, dig up your favorite comics- whether it’s the vintage classics, or pre-Civil War Avengers, or annuals and christmas specials.
The goal is to have a bunch of positive favorite comics content, so when people post their own favorite comics, they can discover new favorites from the posts others are making! So feel free to liveblog your favorite Journey into Mystery issues in the #favoritecomicsweek tag, or celebrate the old Avengers and X-Men line ups. You can post favorite comics related fanwork as well- whether it’s fanart of Tony’s rollerblades armor or meta about Cosmic Marvel or fic featuring characters currently dead in canon, take this week to share your love of your favorite Marvel comics.
This event will take place right here on tumblr in the #favoritecomicsweek tag. See you September 1st!
The story of a kick-ass U.S. Air Force pilot, an undercover Kree scientist, two S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, and the government stooge who wants them all locked up.
Katee Sackhoff as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel is a no-brainer. Carol’s military, so it doesn’t hurt that there isn’t a man or woman on Earth who looks better in a uniform than Sackhoff.
Jon Hamm as Mar-Vell. I imagine that Mar-Vell based his human alias, Dr. Walter Lawson, on characters from old television broadcasts that the Kree picked up over the decades.
Michelle Ryan as Jessica Drew. Drew will start off as a human agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. She quickly develops a buddy-cop relationship with the brash Danvers. Bonus points for having Sackhoff and Ryan playing opposite each other again.
Stephanie Beatriz as Abigail Brand. Brand is tasked with heading up S.H.I.E.L.D.’s new extraterrestrial investigation unit. And she doesn’t have time for your crap.
Jack Coleman as Henry Peter Gyrich. After the Hydra debacle, S.H.I.E.L.D. no longer gets a free pass from the government. Dispatched from the Department of Defense, Gyrich’s sole desire is to see S.H.I.E.L.D. (and its super-powered playthings) gone for good.
Hey, Pretty Deadly fans!
Our friend Summer — who did the beautiful illustrations of Molly and Johnny that accompanied Chad’s prose stories in volume 1, issues 1 and 2, — was in a bad car accident last week and is now recovering in the hospital.
If you get a chance to drop her a line on Twitter and let her know we wish her well, I’m sure there’d be some good karma in it for you.
She’s here: https://twitter.com/UziSuzuki
Summer also did this lovely sketch of Carol as Binary. Get at her, Carol Corps.
Having surgery this afternoon if everything goes well. I feel like I got run over. pic.twitter.com/4Zf8xDT1pP— Kraken Wang (@UziSuzuki)July 29, 2014

Marvel meets Myers-Briggs: Introversion iNtuition Feeling Perceiving
"Idealistic, dedicated, and curious. Fueled by intense feeling and deeply held ethics. Seeks an external life that is in keeping with internal values. Loyal to the people and causes important to them. Intensely focused on making the world a better place for people. Flexible and laid-back by nature but aggressively defensive if a person , value, or cause is threatened." [ X ]
Idk, I found this relevant. Also, I agree.
I have a longstanding headcanon that Carol loves the Fourth of July and hosts a barbeque at Avengers Mansion every year. It started small, just backyard hamburgers and a cake for Steve, but one year Tony crashed and then Pepper found out and it became a thing. Soon everyone ever started showing up. I’ve even written a series of fics about these parties, populated by the Avengers and their offspring. There are recurring bits like
But it all started because Carol loves Independence Day and associates it with family. She doesn’t have a lot of happy memories of her childhood but the ones she does revolve around patriotism…baseball and apple pie and fireworks and the Boston Pops. The Avengers are her family and this is how she honors them.
Happy 4th of July!
