Kamala Khan as Ms Marvel in #80 for schwarzbrot

ms marvel was a favourite of mine since the animated x-men (lol a very long time ago) and knowing that an amazing girl has taken up her title, i wanted to make this more than a sketch like the previous request fills. used white in this and had to mix some of the tones.

Imagine Natasha, Gamora, and Laura meeting for a support group like every once a month. If it was a shared universe Cass Cain and Rose Wilson can join them( and any other girl that was raised/trained to be an assassin at birth.) They just all talk and support each other. Reminding them that they are more than what their fathers or handlers intended them to be. That despite that they know how to kill people in probably over a 100 different ways, that doesn’t make them any less of a person or any less deserving of kindness and love. The hands that they were told to be only used for killing and destruction can be used to make and do beautiful things, because they are beautiful beings.
But its not just coping, its going to the movies and playing games. Its going out dancing or ice skating, having a fancy dinner that doesn’t ending in killing a mark or fighting some bad guy. They aren’t undercover, they could show there true faces. Because its not just coping, it reminding them that they can be a part of the bigger world and not just exist in the shadows.

"I think every teenager goes through that thing that Treshold’s in where you possess intelligence, or at least common sense, without maturity or experience. There’s a point every kid comes to where they think the know how it all operates and it takes something fairly big to convince them they’re completely wrong"

Adam WarRock “Armor” (free download)

I’ve been a bit busy, but still got some free music to you!

I’ve always had this weird fascination with Armor, from the X-Men. Maybe it’s because her name is so obvious, and power is so sort of stupid – and yet she still manages to be a pretty awesome character. Maybe it’s because she’s a part of one of the greatest X-Men panels of all time:

tumblr_lkfs3l6liW1qct773o1_500There’s something so incredibly obvious about a hero named Armor, whose power is armor, and the ensuing metaphor that comes with it. But sometimes, simplicity is the best. I love Hisako, and there’s not much else to it. Hope you enjoy the song.

I’m taking a break from my travels and touring for a while. The next shows I have on the horizon are at Central Coast Comic Con and Rose City Comic Con in September, but for now, just sit back, enjoy the music, and maybe buy some albums while you’re at it. Or not.

If you want one of the new tshirts, shoot me an email. I’m holding on to the last inventory for future shows for now until I reorder them; but I’m not opposed to sending out a few if someone wants one.

marvel movies that need to be made, stat.

This is great. Personally I’d prefer Young Avengers as a TV series since it was such a personal drama, but still very cool.

My headcanon is that Iron Man recored entire thing with his helmet and immiediatelly e-mailed it to all his friends. Which was true reason behind Civil War.

unrepentantgamer asked: Young Justice doesn't qualify as A-List? The comic version, not the cartoon version (although I mourn the cancellation of the cartoon)


Answer:

Well, probably not by my definition of A-List. A-Lister must be the face of the company and headline more than one book and usually also have team-up book or be on a team (or two). A-List for me are characters like Batman, Superman, Captain America, Spider-Man and Wolverine. None of the Young Justice characters compares to that. I mean, DC casually made it that Bart never existed in New 52, they would never do that to an A-Lister. Superboy and Tim might be B-Listers at best, but that’s quite it.

Now I’m curious as to how you’d rank various Teen heroes on the A, B, C, D, Z List scale  … or it tempts me to give it a try since my MASSIVE DOCUMENT OF TEEN HEROES does include a spot for ‘number of appearances’. 

Well, let me think.

A-List: Nobody of the usual group of characters covered by this blog qualifies. Out of Older characters who were once teen heroes I’d again say Spider-Man and Original Five X-Men.

B-List: Supergirl, Superboy, all male Robins, seeing how they return Barbara Gordon to teen superhero roots she would qualify as well. X-23 is great example of B-Lister in that she is always in something, but her apperances are usually limited to one book at time (NYX -> her minis -> New X-Men -> X-Force -> Her Solo book -> Avengers Academy -> Dennis Hopeless Shitty Fanfic -> All-New X-Men), so is Quentin Quire who doesn’t have his own book but is prominently featured in one series and guest stars a lot. Same with Kate Bishop and Sam Alexander, who were in two books at the same time. Finally, for now at least, Kamala has a strong spot here.

C-List: Pretty much everyone else. Characters who might be popular enough to branch into other books (Cassie in Mighty Avengers), video games (Nico in Avengers Alliance, Pixie in X-Men games) or animation (Surge in Avengers Disc Wars, Armor in X-Men anime, White Tiger in Ultimate Spider-Man) or are in multiple things but can easily drop into limbo (Noh-Varr) can have stronger position than others, but not enough to get them into B-List (and even then levels of “strength” here differs). On DC I suspect Raven and more popular of Teen Titans and Young Justice kids are between this and B-List. Both Cass Cain and Stephanie Brown are here.

D-and lower lists: Pretty much all really, really obscure characters.

I’d say an A-lister is one of those characters that simply don’t go away. Like, they are always in books, not just as background, even when they don’t have their own book (solo or team).

A good example is Stephen Strange. He hasn’t had a book of his own in forever, but he’s in lots of books lots of the time.

Or Nightcrawler. Even while he was dead, he popped up in stories in flashbacks and alternate realities and stuff.

I’d say A-listers always seep back into the universe, no matter how widely utilised they are.

A-lister for me is somebody who is a star, who brings the money on the table, who is pushed everywhere.Who is headlining every event, who shows on multiple comics a month or at least on multiple covers. Somebody who is to comics of his company what John Cena is to WWE. Somebody who is just popular enough to avoid comic book limbo but that’s it is more of a B-List or very strong C-List.
