    Default Mary Marvel Appreciation Thread (2019)

    NOTE: This thread is to serve as continuation of the previous MARY MARVEL appreciation thread!, which can be found at https://community.cbr.com/showthread...ciation-thread

    from the previous version (originally created by justinslot back in July 2016):

    Anyway, Bombshells Mary Marvel appeared in my Tumblr feed:


    Miri Marvel! She has an entirely Old Testament-based pantheon in the Bombshellsverse. I love the magical girl-esque costume here, she even has a wand. Come to think of it Mary was the original magical girl...
    A couple of other threads that may be of interest to Mary Marvel fans:

    And, the cover of Wow Comics #9 (January 6, 1943):

    Thank you so much, MajorHoy. You don't know how much this means to me. I have been waiting a long time for someone to start up a new appreciation thread for one of my favorite characters in comic book history. This really means a lot and thanks again.

    Looks like a more positive team-up then when she and Linda went blow-for-blow earlier in PAD's run.

    I'm a big fan of that Supergirl run. Also a fan of The Power of Shazam! series from the same era, which is mostly where I know Mary and the Marvel Family from. I started reading comics in the early '90s, and stopped about a decade later, so that's the era I know best. Though I did get some back issues along the way, including a reprint that included Mary's first appearance and origin story.

    One of my favorite series of all time. I really liked how PD made Mary Marvel the all around good girl in a tounge and cheek kind of way and how she got on Linda's nerves. Was fun.

    Mary Marvel. A sweet, inmocent and all around nice girl. Then Dido try to do his thing with her. The perfect example of everything wrong with that man's thinking.
