MOTW 1/23/13: Yeah, great. Sounds fascinating.

    Having only recently jumped onboard with newer, current Marvel comics, I'm hoping someone can clear something up for me with Avengers:
    Who was the chick with the afro (I'm guessing it's not Misty Knight) that made Ex Nihilo and crew back down? Is she new or is she an existing character?
    The character herself is new, but her superpowers are called the Uni-Power, an enigmatic force in the Marvel Universe that basically empowers random people in times of great need. When empowered, these people are called Captain Universe. I'd be willing to bet that this will all be explained for new readers eventually, though.
    I'm pretty sure Hickman has said that the next three issues will each individually focus on Hyperion, Smasher, and Captain Universe, so we should get a lot of that explaining very soon.

    Much as I love Captain Unispider

    Opena's Captain Universe is the best the design has ever looked

    all shimmering with starlight

    might use Opena's Avengers for a new av/sig actually

    The starlight-shimmering design and the crazy non-sequiturs just made me think of Starman from Justice Society

    One of the mounts in Rift is how I always pictured Captain Universes suit would look if animated

    Isn't that how Quasar's cape worked? (Or at least one of the Quasar's. I don't remember if it was Wendell, Phyla-vell or Richard who had that cape)

  • CrimsondudeCrimsondude Registered User regular
    Yes. Wendell Vaughn's cape worked like that. It's also how Mar-Vell appeared when he used his Cosmic Sense, and how he was drawn in the Ultimate universe. I also recall Alex Ross drawing a version of Captain Marvel for Marvels that was probably the basis of the Ultimate Captain Marvel look.

    It's also like the DC One Million Starman.

    Prophet #33; Whatever Happened to the Maximum Man?

    The fact that Brandon Graham and his collaborators have really succeeded at wringing genuine pathos out of characters like Badrock, Diehard, and Supreme, is amazing. I'm sure this moment wouldn't have as much impact, had I not read Alan Moore's Supreme run, but damn.

    This guy was Earth's mightiest hero, and he died an ugly death, and the only person who still remembers his name, is the memory of a man, stuck in a machine.

    And this moment was sandwiched between two poop jokes.
