My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics Part 17 – Q

Q is for Quicksilver Pietro Maximoff first appeared in X-Men 4 back in 1964, since then he's been a mutant, not a mutant, good guy, not a good guy, terrorist, leader, father, husband and a dozen other epithets, but most consistently he's been one thing, a massive d**k. Originally a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of… Continue reading My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics Part 17 – Q

P is for Psylocke / Elizabeth 'Betsy' Braddock, the X-Man known as Psylocke is the twin sister of Brian Braddock the Captain Britain of Earth 616 and the younger sister of Jamie (reality warping mad b@$t@erd) Braddock and one could be forgiven to expect that she would be somewhat in the shadow of her brothers,… Continue reading My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics Part 16 – P

My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics part 15 – O

O is for Onslaught:   This was a difficult one to pick, not too many characters of note starting with O. Since I tend to favour the unappreciated characters and maligned stories, Onslaught was the best fit here. Onslaught is what happens when you don't let s**t go. There's a Jungian psychology term for the… Continue reading My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics part 15 – O

The thing that stuck was the young everyman element. Peter Parker was struggling with money, girls and his identity long before… Continue reading My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics part 14 – N

L is for Legion David Haller was introduced in 1983's New Mutants 26 and is the son of Israeli politician Gabrielle Haller and Professor Charles Francis Xavier, so we already know that this is a story about unethical practices and unhappy endings. 20 years or so before, Professor Xavier was helping victims of war including… Continue reading My Marvel Life Presents A-Z of Comics Part 12 – L

My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics part 11 – K

K is for Kang   There are comics characters with confusing histories, characters that have convoluted continuity, there are characters that have worn different names and characters who's very nature causes headaches. Take all that, put it in a blender, when it's a soup-like consistency, spill it, that mess is Kang. Nathaniel Richards was born… Continue reading My Marvel Life Presents: A-Z of Comics part 11 – K
