While we went without power it feel to me to entertain the kids. Nothing delights children of all ages more than playing with action figures. But, there was one complaint. I didn't have enough female characters. So, for my girls, I wanted to point out strong female leads in comics, so this week it's Ms. Marvel!

The first issue of Ms. Marvel really is a classic of 1970's comicdom. It has our heroine bursts off the pages, lots of little heads, and text all over the place to explain what we can plainly see. It's perfect!
Below the break... more classic covers!
Ok, maybe this week isn't about classic covers. Maybe it's more about underseen covers. Personally, I've always loved the Vision. The whole intagable thing was just too cool! Way cooler than Kitty Pryde, that's for sure.
Nothing defines silly Marvel villains more than Modok. Who can resist a cover of a woman punching a giant head?

What do you do when sales falter? You start have your female leads wear less clothes! Crossovers and neekid people will always boost sales.

This is a swipe from something somewhere but I can't think of it right now. No matter, it appeals to my inner nerd. And, for continuity geeks, the lizard people here would later show up in a Rom Spaceknight storyline!
That's all folks, now go enjoy the rest of your weekend!
