He’s the erotic artist we couldn’t believe Marvel hired to help promote their new title, with a questionable cover, on a book they hoped would gain some female readers.
"…they hoped would gain some female readers" in Bizarro World. Seriously, on what planet did you think that would be an awesome way to market to female readers and make them feel welcome? It doesn’t matter that it was just a variant cover if you’re making that variant to accompany a comic you are trying to get women interested it. I mean talk about tone deaf. I’m the prime example of its effect - I was looking forward to Spider-Woman, but when I saw the variant cover I decided not to subscribe. I’m still a little wary even after this.
Could you imagine if they did a variant cover of Captain Marvel by Milo Manara? Marvel would be burned to the ground and the earth salted. If you feel you must use artists like Manara, stick to the Marvel characters you’ve already overtly sexualized like Emma Frost.
Marvel Heroes Height Comparison Chart - Illustrated for HalloweenCostumes.com.
I always thought Storm was taller, but I guess it’s because she always wears heels? Though that doesn’t explain why the Thing often appears taller.
I thought it was interesting that the movie version of Rocket was much much shorter than the comics (he’s roughly the size of an actual raccoon), in comparison to Wolverine, who is much taller in the movies (Hugh Jackman is 6’2”).
Wow, it’s really weird to me that The Thing is so short.
Storm *is* tall at 5’11. Women’s average height is usually around 5’4.
so how bitter are Black Widow fans that Peggy has her own tv show before Natasha has her own movie?

Uh, not any?
I’m pretty pleased, myself. We’re getting a PEGGY CARTER TV SHOW, how is that not awesome?
I’m excited as hell that a Peggy Carter TV show is happening, and bitter that people are trying to pit female characters and their fans against each other.
I am bitter that Ant-Man and Doctor Strange are getting movies before Natasha, but I’m thrilled about the Peggy Carter show! I will watch the hell out of it! And whaddya mean Black Widow fans and Peggy Carter fans? What if I’m a fan of both?
Why on earth do fictional women get pitted against each other? I’m thrilled that Peggy is getting a show, and I want Natasha to get a movie. I’m capable of being a fan of more than one woman in the MCU.
Being a fan of Marvel ladies is not like the rules of Highlander. There can be more than one.
Every Natasha fan I know is thrilled over the Agent Carter series. There can be both. I don’t see anyone out there saying “We want a Black WIdow- and only a Black Widow- movie.” Give us Peggy Carter, give us Black Widow, give us Captain Marvel, give us a She-Hulk legal series, whatever they got. Were we supposed to be mad that Jessica Jones got picked up for the Netflix thing, too?
Sadly, I think I know why the pitting is happening. Some of it is people doing the societal female competition thing, but I think a lot of it is unfortunately due to what we’ve been taught over and over again by a sexist media. “People won’t go see a female superhero movie” “Female superhero movies flop” ”Guys don’t want to see a female lead action show.” There is a lack of female heroines in media and it’s all because of this nonsense, so when people see one woman get to carry a tv show/movie they think the quota has been filled and get worried. Then the studios sit there and treat it as all other female roles will depend on how well this one thing does. The thinking of the her vs. her thing is that studios would neeeever give two women of Marvel the green light at once. Unfortunately they’re probably right about that at least at the movies and that’s one of the many reasons we need to make our voices heard. Say it with me!!
I love Agent Carter AND #whereismyblackwidowmovie!
