The Strange, Strange History of Ms. Marvel

Our Adorable Past

 

The Escapist’s Bob Chipman, whose videos we’ve featured before, took it upon himself to lay out the life and evolution of Ms. Marvel, in all its Silver-Age-Cracked-out making-rape-apologists-of-the-Avengers glory, and with it, lay out some significant facts about Marvel’s editorial history. That is, Ms. Marvel the Marvel Comics superhero. Not a member of the DC Comics Marvel family, headed by Captain Marvel. Who is not Captain Mar-vell, the Marvel superhero.

Look, maybe you just ought to watch the video. Part one above, part two below.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
