    Default Blue Marvel Appreciation

    Welcome, everyone, to the thread that appreciates the Blue Marvel (Adam Bernard Brashear)...The Blue Bomber of Battle, The Magnificent Master of Might, The Man of Marvels!

    Origins: (from Marvel.com) https://marvel.com/universe/Blue_marvel

    "In the 1960s Adam Brashear was a young man who served his country as a U.S. Marine. When he discovered his super-powers, he fashioned a secret identity with which to protect his country; the Blue Marvel! He served as a hero for years, and was one of the most popular heroes of his time. Yet Adam had a secret, he was an African-American, a fact not lost on the government. As a precaution against so much power in the hands of a black man, they took steps to control him, even going so far as to plant a Spy for him to date. His career as the Blue Marvel ended after he faced the Anti-Man, with his ethnicity revealed, Adam was pressured by the government to retire."

    However, although Blue Marvel "retired" from protecting humanity as a superhero, Adam still managed to find ways to protect the Earth throughout the decades and recently came out of retirement and re-joined the superhero community so that the Blue Marvel could fly again.

    Blue Marvel is currently a team member in the "Mighty Avengers" ongoing series written by Al Ewing.

    *Credit for some of the opening text seen above goes to SilverZeal*

    First Appearance: Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel #1 (mini-series)

    Significant Issues: Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel #1-5; Age of Heroes #3; Fear Itself: The Home Front #4, Mighty Avengers, The Ultimates

    Occupation: Adventurer, scientist

    Education: Dr. Adam Brashear has a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Theoretical Physics from Cornell University

    Powers: Superhuman strength (equal to Thor and Hulk), flight, nigh-invulnerability, anti-matter energy generation. Blue Marvel's body stores anti-matter and disperses it to unknown degrees.

    Abilities: Blue Marvel, who is actually 80 years old, ages slower than average humans due to his exposure to anti-matter. He is a stable anti-matter reactor.

    Weapons: Blue Marvel is trained in armed combat, due to having been a U.S. Marine during the Korean War.

    Let the celebrations of such a great character continue!

    Before I tried Mighty Avengers, I had never heard of Blue Marvel. Now, he's very much a favorite. Black Panther should probably get an MCU movie first, but I hope Blue Marvel isn't too far behind. He's such a rich and interesting character, and so much of his story is wide-open.

    I'd personally enjoy a DVD release of his mini series in animated form. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    That new costume has grown on me no end. Can't wait to see how involved Brashear gets in Original Sin! Long live the Blue Bomber of Battle!

    It would be nice if the next Avengers movie made some kind of direct reference to Blue Marvel, as well as some of the older heroes that pre-date the Avengers. Something like having Stark walk into Fury's office while the latter gentleman is looking at 3D files of various heroes that might be able to help the team. One of the files at the top of the screen would read either Adam Brashear or Blue Marvel. Or better yet, have one of his children make a cameo appearance as a SHIELD scientist in training. Even a simple throw away role like that would be a big deal.

    We/SZ had earlier cr8d d...

    "Why isn't Blue Marvel an Avenger" thread

    whr postrs(fans, non-fans & curious postrs learning abt BM) advocated, discussd, debated, agreed & disagreed abt BM bcuming an avngr & whether or not BM was a gd fit on any Avngrs team given d conclusion of d awesome BM mini series entitled Adam: Legend of d Blue Marvel whr IM/Stark offerd BM Avngr membership....& now BM is an Avngr....a MIGHTY AVNGR.

    Anothr thrd was crea8d by us/SZ following BM's story as a myty avngr in d former avngrs forum here...

    Blue Marvel: Mighty Avenger Appreciation:
    http://oldforums.comicbookresources....r-Appreciation


    D purpose of dis thread is 2 discuss all preferences, expectations, speculation, adventures, story & xcter progression of BM with his nu team mates in Mighty Avngrs.

    HERE IS WAT WE ALL KNOW ABT BM SO FAR


    1)
    BM is a "Global Protector" attending 2 threats & problems around d world which r either neglectd or unaware by most supheros or bcuz most supaheroes r pre-occupied elsewhr or d threats r below their radar. BM tends 2 focus most of his supahero activities outside d US bcuz he blvs dat d US alrdy has 2 many supaheros 2 protect it while d rest of d world is mostly neglectd.

    2)
    BM is a 1st if not currently d only anti-matta energy manipulator in d MU although d full extent of his capabilities hv nt bn explored but so far we know so far is dat BM has...

    - invulnerability

    - Super-strength

    - Anti-matta energy shield

    - Flight

    - Energy blast dat luk similar 2 electricity in appearance

    - Possibly energy constructs

    - Age-restraint as a side-effect of his pwrs(with also affectd BM's l8 wife & speculation has it dat BM's 'kids' may also hv inherited dis)

    - Doesnt require 2 eat or sleep & has lost d pleasure of such indulgemnts since his wife died

    3)
    BM is a widower who lost his wife(Candace) whn he was in battle with his best friend-turnd-villain(Antiman)...it was revealld she was a govt spy.

    4)
    He is a single father of 3(2 boys & 1 girl). 1 of dem is a villain called Dr. Positron/Max Brashear, BM's 1st son is trappd in d Neutral Zone after being a sidekick 2 BM in various adventures but BM's dauta Adriene Brashear has only bn mentiond a few tyms but nt yet seen on panel.

    5)
    BM was a working man as a fyzix lecturer as well as a theoretical & exploratory scientist

    6)
    BM discoverd & explored a nu universe/dimension he calld d "NEUTRAL ZONE" whr anti-matta & positive matta co-exist inter-dependently &has extractd a material he calls "NEUTRONIUM". Neutronium has bn shwn 2 hv a negatv effect on BM by cmpromising his reactor ability 2 stabilise unstable antimatta enrgies.

    7)
    BM has his own base under sea in d Marianna trench referrd 2 as d "Kadesh Base" & "Science 4tress".

    8)
    BM is a highly awarded veteran soldier frm d Korean war

    9)
    BM has a mentorship/ close relations with Uatu d Watcher & an old buddy of Namor

    10)
    In d 1960's, BM was gvn a presidential order 2 retire frm supaheroix bcuz his activities was worsening cold war tensions & incidentally escalated civil ryts rivalries whn BM's mask got turn in a fyt with Antiman.

    11)
    IM/Stark, Hank Pym, Reed, Ms/Capt. Marvel, Wonder-man, Sentry, Sue Richards, King Hyperion & d Thunderbolts hv all met BM...in BM's mini & other appearances & references; hopefully der will b sum continuity reference 2 dis in MA.

    12)
    BM is a 1960's superhero which time 4got & every1(except in sum secret US govt seald files & SHIELD) thought BM had died (pls ask &/or read d BM mini 4 furthr understnding).

    13)
    Was a membr of d premier 1st MA team in d 60's which will b explored in d MA tie-ins 2 d Original sin evnt(May 2013)

    NOTE:

    This May, the Blue Marvel grieves for the passing of The Watcher in MIGHTY AVENGERS #10 – a tie-in to Original Sin! From the fan-favorite creative team of Al Ewing and Greg Land - the Watcher has many enemies, some that would go so far as to murder him in cold blood. But he also has friends. On the moon, Adam Brashear honors the memory of one of his dearest friends and the gaping hole he leaves behind in the Marvel Universe. And a chance encounter with an old flame from Uatu’s past will reveal startling secrets the Blue Marvel never knew about the cosmic entity!

    Here r sum of our/SZ thoughts on y we/SZ blv dat CENTURIUS/Noah Blak & High Evolutionary/Wyndham(currntly arch villain in Yost's NW) wud mk a perfect arch-villain 4 BM as well as d MA team

    (re-postd frm Blue Marvel: Mighty Avenger Appreciation:http://oldforums.comicbookresources....ciation/page44

    loc8d in d old forums)

    A superb story 2 b told here. We/SZ can easily...

    1)
    -- c "Dr. Positron" seeking mentorship under Centurius & joining d Conspiracy

    2)
    -- brilliant connexion 2 High Evolutionary/Wyndham since Blk & Wyndham knw each each othr which by extention cud lead 2 a crossovr with Yost's current All Nu NW series.

    3)
    -- fathom additnlly othr connexions of Centurius include Arnim Zola & "Enclave" thru Wladyslav Shinsky.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enclave_%28comics%29
    The Enclave is a fictional subversive organization of dictatorially-minded scientists featured in comics published by Marvel Comics.

    Members

    Dr. Jerome Hamilton - An American medical biologist. He was killed by Adam Warlock.

    Maris Morlak - A Lithuanian nuclear physicist. He briefly possessed cosmic power on the same level as Kismet and the Silver Surfer. He could rearrange matter, manipulate energy, manipulate weather, fly, survive in space, and project energy bolts.

    Professor Wladyslav Shinski - A Polish geneticist. He briefly possessed cosmic power on the same level as Kismet and Silver Surfer. He could rearrange matter, manipulate energy, manipulate weather, fly, survive in space, and project energy bolts.

    Carlo Zota - A Spanish electronics technician. He briefly possessed cosmic power on the same level as Kismet and Silver Surfer. He could rearrange matter, manipulate energy, manipulate weather, fly, survive in space, and project energy bolts.

    Crucible


    Crucible is the supervillain identity used by Maris Morlak and Professor Wladyslav Shinski, two members of the Enclave. Crucible went after Mister Fantastic in a plot to steal his inventive genius and kick-start the Enclave's genetics program. They wore identical suits of power armor, forged by the same monks who forged Doctor Doom's armor, which have the ability to transmute the shape and composition of materials.
    4)-- Enclave has history with d F4 & so does Cage, Shulk & BM(he has met Reed).

    5)-- dat BM possibly has history with Centurius who has also lived a very long tym...he got his Nobel prize in d 30's & has nt bn a prominent mega-villain 4 a long tym & gvn his intellect Blk is smart enuff 2 coordin8 plans frm any prison on earth.

    6)-- By extnsion we cud also hv connexions 2 Jimmy Woo (& d agents of atlas) as well as Nick Fury (& SHIELD) who has bn around since d 50's as a supaspy(currntly leading d AoA)

    7)--Hell, y nt hv d Conspiracy or Enclave in cohoots with Cortex. Inc.?

    8)-- Heck, 4 all we knw WESPE may hv prbably bn a frnt 4 Cnspiracy or Enclave or both?

    9)-- Conspiracy &/or Enclave may b cmpleting 2 get access in2 d Neutral zone &/or get control of "Kevin" 2 manipul8 him/Kevin 4 their own goals.

    Der is plenty der 4 Ewing 2 play with enuff 2 kp BM & d entire MA team VERY busy on all scales(local in d US, global & cosmic) as well as severl brillnt opprtunities 4 crossovrs with F4, All Nu Invadrs, Cap's solo, Shulk's solo, All Nu NW
