    Happy Birthday to the late GREAT John Buscema!!!

    Avengers #255 May 1985
    "The Legacy of Thanos!"
    The Vision's plan to take over the world's computers has been stopped!
    But the ramifications from the Avengers' chairman's actions are just beginning! The Pentagon is hopping mad and wants some answers!
    The Vision and the Scarlet Witch depart the team and head to Washington D.C. and into the pages of the second Vision and the Scarlet Witch Limited Series.
    Meanwhile during his scheme to deceive his teammates, the Vision sent Captain Marvel to Thanos' old starship on a false pretense.

    But once the Crescent City avenger infiltrates Sanctuary II, she discovers possible alien activity!

    Who is prowling around the mad Titan's former command ship?

    Notes: This issue begins Buscema & Palmer's second run on the Avengers title (thru issue 300).
    The two artists had previously worked together on the Avengers series during the silver age.
    Their last collaboration was more than 150 issues ago on Avengers 97
    .

    Don't know if this has been mentioned:

    She was one of the eight characters in the box set launch of the TSR RPG in 1984.

    Captain America
    Captain Marvel
    Human Torch
    Invisible Woman
    Mister Fantastic
    Spider-Man
    Thing
    Wolverine

    She was also on the cover to the Advanced set that followed a few years later, as well as included as a pre-generated character for play.
    More info here.

    I remember her being about equal with DC's Firestorm as to how playable she actually was. She had the potential to be overpowered and it was a bit confusing about the limits of her powers. Whenever we actually used her, she was often simplified to flying, shooting energy blasts and phasing through walls.

    I doubt Ewing has anything in store for the very first Captain Marvel woman in 2018 although it was, to me, a marvelous revelation that the comicbook character Captain Marvel has her own sense of 'cosmic awareness', just like the comicbook character Captain Mar-Vell had his own sense of 'cosmic awareness'

    That shouldn't come as a shocked.


    Ewing has nothing in store for her or Adam/Blue and that for best because they both deserve more than he gave & a better writer than him..

    I believe that Monica (should) have astronavigation powers, or Blue Marvel should be able to guide her with that exploration-- she shouldn't have big problem navigating through unknown space.

    That panel needs to be revised in light of the fact that (a) Monica has a degree of Cosmic Awareness and can probably find her way back home (although travelling at the speed of light still means that it might take her a looooooong time to get there, depending on how far away they are; and (b) Monica doesn't return to human form per Ewing's latest take on her, so jumping into hyperspace wouldn't turn her back to "normal" per se. It might force her to occupy a solid light form, though, momentarily.

    Happy Birthday Jazzy Johnny "Ring-a-Ding" Romita!!!

    Amazing Spider-Man Annual #16
    "WHO'S THAT LADY?"
    Monica ties up her boat to the oil rig. Initially Dr. Picaro's guards tell her this is private property and she must leave but then..

    "CARAMBA!"

    Monica's initial costume is created from various parts of old Mardi Gras outfits she finds in a warehouse.

    Later, Dr. LeClare provides her with an identical suit made of unstable molecules.

    When Jarvis discovers Captain Marvel standing over an unconscious Iron Man, his reaction is priceless.

    He calls her a "shameless trollop" and then races out of the room in search of help.

    It's a fun read and the artwork by John Romita, Jr., inked by his legendary father John Romita Sr., is a treat. So if for no other reason, the issue is worth reading for that alone.

    To me, it is interesting to learn in whatever marvel comic what the comicbook character Derek Freeman is up to nowadays.
    Terrible that his brother Duane Freeman, who was an Avengers liaison, was one of the thousands who died when Kang the Conqueror reduced Washington D.C. to rubble in Avengers #49 Feb 2002.
    Although the comicbook character Derek Freeman´s romance with the comicbook character Captain Marvel never went anywhere it did in the MC2 universe,
    resulting in them becoming the parents of

    Kendra Freeman

    I agree with the lack of a story line as leader being saddening.

    Whether it was the editors at Marvel going for a semi-collapse of the Avengers; or the inability to deal with a near-uber character (as Cap M is really powerful - as she was written in the 80s) or the timing of the comic book industry (character rights, big names opening their own company etc) - Marvel really did an injustice by not utilizing a great character to its potential.
    I'll say.

She's her fans Superman, backed up by all the wrong types of Social justice. Its hard to have a discussion about it because of the silencing/bullying/vitrol, and group think. For marvel it's not worth the headache.
    To me, nowadays things are most certainly done for show instead of substance.
