I thought it was sort of cool at first, this whole WOMEN OF MARVEL celebration. I dunno, I guess I was sort of excited to read more books about the female characters. Marvel don’t exactly treat them very good. Spider-Woman and Ms. Marvel were the only characters with an on-going, and a vagina, but both of those books have since been cancelled. Females get a generally good showing on teams, but mostly they’re their to fit into roles – Valkyrie on the Secret Avengers, Ms. Marvel on the Avengers, Sue Storm on the Fantastic Four. All characters with potential, but in their team books they fall into character types and become sort of boring. The X-Men are typically better but, as I’ll demonstrate later in this review, they’re a little guilty of it too.

I mean, they didn’t even talk about old one eye’s in X-Men Origins: Cyclops and they got diamond tits’ outright wrong in X-Men Origins: Emma Frost. I was feeling left out! All I’ve been doing is fighting AIM for my alternaverse zombie head, having inane adventures in a solo title, hanging out dimension-hopping with my alterna-buddies saving the multiverse, attending funerals, joining X-Force, team-up with Z-Listers and watching Bea Arthur porn.
It’s really about time I took a moment to reflect on something I’ve already done. That being: MY ENTIRE LIFE UP UNTIL THIS POINT.

We all read blogs – as evident by your reading of this blog now. But we don’t all read blogs all the time and we don’t all subscribe to RSS feeds. We do. So, to make it easier for people who don’t, we’ve collected a series of this week’s posts from a series of blogs that we follow.
