After-the-fact commission by Michael Golden of a cover he had proposed for Avengers annual #10. Unaccountably, Marvel went for a hideous Al Milgrom collage I can’t bear to sully the Baxter building with. Look it up for yourself if you don’t believe me.

“I do actually feel like — albeit for financial reasons — but I do think that at Marvel things feel a little different, like Marvel is noticing. Marvel books in the low [20,000]s get canceled. [Captain Marvel] got outsold by ‘Red She-Hulk.’ … And they let us keep going. They not only let us keep going, they supported us.”

I need to talk about this cover, and why it is a travesty that it wasn’t the main one picked for the first issue of the new Captain Marvel run.  The standard cover is a rather static picture of a smirking Carol in a pretty boring Rosie the Riveter call back pose, and for a series about a woman with a dynamic power set and personality, I was rather underwhelmed.
This new arc is about Carol returning to space, rediscovering her most elemental and primal self a self she lost in a horrible set of circumstances that demanded her sacrifice for the good of others.  This Carol, not a smiling Rosie the Riveter Carol, is that primal self Carol is searching for.
I am terrified of this Carol.  I am in awe of her.  This Carol is not an easily swallowed, brightly grinning motivational poster.  This Carol has the universe at her fingertips and is not afraid to destroy anyone who gets in her way.  This Carol is not going to apologize for being strong.  
I am tired of needing a heroine to be easy to swallow.  Give me powerful, world-killing goddesses.  Give me women who make me feel uncomfortable.  Let her be needy and selfish and conflicted and lost and let her triumph anyway.
This is my Carol.
And I don’t want her any other way.

Marvelous: How Carol & Kamala Are Changing Superhero Comics

My latest for Slate: how Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel are changing superhero comics. I feel like maybe the Big Two are finally starting to understand that by investing in a wider range of characters, they’re cultivating a larger, wider range of readers. Comics fans are only getting more diverse and sophisticated, and it’s time for publishers like Marvel to lead instead of lagging far behind. 

I’ve been waiting a long time to be able to write a piece like this. I’m peeking through my fingers, hoping the good news lasts.

I know this is all very serious bc it’s about Carol’s alcoholism but one time when she was drunk Carol “drop kicked” Tony through an airplane.
