    Happy Birthday to the late GREAT John Buscema!!!

    Avengers #255 May 1985
    "The Legacy of Thanos!"
    The Vision's plan to take over the world's computers has been stopped!
    But the ramifications from the Avengers' chairman's actions are just beginning! The Pentagon is hopping mad and wants some answers!
    The Vision and the Scarlet Witch depart the team and head to Washington D.C. and into the pages of the second Vision and the Scarlet Witch Limited Series.
    Meanwhile during his scheme to deceive his teammates, the Vision sent Captain Marvel to Thanos' old starship on a false pretense.

    But once the Crescent City avenger infiltrates Sanctuary II, she discovers possible alien activity!

    Who is prowling around the mad Titan's former command ship?

    Notes: This issue begins Buscema & Palmer's second run on the Avengers title (thru issue 300).
    The two artists had previously worked together on the Avengers series during the silver age.
    Their last collaboration was more than 150 issues ago on Avengers 97

    Don't know if this has been mentioned:

    She was one of the eight characters in the box set launch of the TSR RPG in 1984.

    Captain America
    Captain Marvel
    Human Torch
    Invisible Woman
    Mister Fantastic
    Spider-Man
    Thing
    Wolverine

    She was also on the cover to the Advanced set that followed a few years later, as well as included as a pre-generated character for play.
    More info here.

    I remember her being about equal with DC's Firestorm as to how playable she actually was. She had the potential to be overpowered and it was a bit confusing about the limits of her powers. Whenever we actually used her, she was often simplified to flying, shooting energy blasts and phasing through walls.

    I doubt Ewing has anything in store for the very first Captain Marvel woman in 2018 although it was, to me, a marvelous revelation that the comicbook character Captain Marvel has her own sense of 'cosmic awareness', just like the comicbook character Captain Mar-Vell had his own sense of 'cosmic awareness'

    That shouldn't come as a shocked.


    Ewing has nothing in store for her or Adam/Blue and that for best because they both deserve more than he gave & a better writer than him..

    Talking Happy Birthday Bob Harras!!!

    Avengers #345 Mar 1992
    "Storm Gathering" Operation: Galactic Storm Part 5 of 19.
    The Avengers attack in outer space! Thor, Quasar, Sersi, and the Vision charge into the Milky Way to intercept the Shi'ar invasion fleet and rescue the Starcore crew!
    In an awesome display of their powers, the four mighty Avengers storm the Shi'ar flagship and halt its advance! Several hours later inside Avengers Mansion,
    Captain America calls together more than twenty Avengers to announce his plan to stop the Kree-Shi'ar war!
    Seven Avengers led by Captain America will travel to Hala to negotiate with the Kree,

    while seven more Avengers led by Captain Marvel journey to Chandilar to reason with the Shi'ar!

    And the remaining Avengers will guard the Earth!
    Good luck to the Kree contingent and the Shi'ar expedition! They're going to need it!

    I believe that Monica (should) have astronavigation powers, or Blue Marvel should be able to guide her with that exploration-- she shouldn't have big problem navigating through unknown space.

    That panel needs to be revised in light of the fact that (a) Monica has a degree of Cosmic Awareness and can probably find her way back home (although travelling at the speed of light still means that it might take her a looooooong time to get there, depending on how far away they are; and (b) Monica doesn't return to human form per Ewing's latest take on her, so jumping into hyperspace wouldn't turn her back to "normal" per se. It might force her to occupy a solid light form, though, momentarily.
