Did you see the Captain Marvel trailer?? Ahh, I just had to bring my Carol Danvers cosplay back! This was my very first cosplay, back in 2015! Swipe to see a photo of my little sister and I at our first con, eughh 😝 I’d like to think I improved!
Ps who is your favourite comic book character? 🗯
The one who’ll blow the nutsack of a chin off Thanos’s face 🤷🏻♀️
til 2am and about to pack it in when @misterabsfitness
tagged me on some gorgeous unused cover art by Michael Golden on Avengers Annual 10 featuring the first appearance of Rogue.
Great Minds my friend. I love this issue. Golden drew the living shit out of it and Chris Claremont wrote a tight story about the Avengers getting their asses handed to them both physically by Rogue and then emotionally when their friend and teammate Carol Danvers shows up, crippled by Rogue and furious at them for basically being complicit in her abduction and rape by a cosmic entity- fallout from a very disturbing Avengers 200 that Claremont among others found reprehensible. This annual was Claremont taking both Marvel and it's characters to task for that error in judgment. When I met him at NYCC he spoke at length about why he had to write this story and why Carol's fate had haunted him. I remember as a kid finding Avengers 200 disturbing and gross even while I didn't fully understand it, and I was always appreciative that this issue dealt with that even if it meant making the Avengers look like assholes. This was the stuff that is important to Chris Claremont, not getting into arguments with John Byrne over if Dr. Doom would allow Arcade to strike a match on him. Wonderful man- he wants to talk about this stuff and every time I meet him he has great stories to tell about the process and the decisions that went into his stories.
And of course he and Michael Golden were kind enough to sign it... ; ) #marvel #marvellegends

Watched the Captain Marvel trailer again and felt like I’d drop the gems of my collection. First appearance, first solo book, first avengers appearance, second solo book, first appearance as captain marvel inks only variant. Seriously, these are some of the comics I love most out of years of collecting. #comicbooks #comiccollector #msmarvel #captainmarvel #avengers #marvelcomics
